The same God who gave his life for the world out of love is the same God who will judge the world that rejects him by sinning.
Many people, especially Christians, are in shock and awe after the events that have taken place in Australia, New Zealand and Japan and America that have been hit by tsunamis and earthquakes and snow storms . We blame IGNORANCE on the part of Christians.
First of all many Christian leaders and their followers are willfully ignorant about:
1. God being a God of Judgment- The Avenger, Jealous , Furious , Terrible , Dreadful, despite being Gracious, Merciful and Love
2. The Word of God— many do not know the difference between a holy bible and a profane bible
3. The Gospel of Jesus Christ
4. The Election of Israel
5. End Times
The list is endless. Then, to make matters worse, when you warn these people about this dangerous ignorance you find that they make wrong conclusions based on that very ignorance. It is a sorry state.
Many Christians have refused to diligently study God’s word and then attack those who have studied who are making sure that they are workmen approved of God.
Ignorance is a dangerous thing because it will lead you to hell and deception, if you do not deal with it.
The way of dealing with Ignorance is diligent reading and study of the word of God ; hearing it and doing it.
Jesus said that the last days shall be as the days of Noah and Sodom and Gommorah .What was similar about those two historic events .Was it the punishments or the location or the populations?
IT WAS THE IGNORANCE OF THE PEOPLE. IT WAS THE SINS OF THE PEOPLE.
The people of the earth KNEW NOT whether it was judgment time and God judged them with the flood for their sins.
The people of Sodom and Gommorah KNEW NOT whether it was judgment time and God judged them for their sins.
Men Women, Children young and old, animals and humans died in these judgments of water and fire.
God was angry because of the wickedness of man.
Yet in all of those similar events ,God delivered the righteous who KNEW that the judgment of God was coming.
LAND DEFILEMENT = LAND JUDGMENTS
When the people sinned, the land was defiled; When people sinned, the land “sinned” and hence reacted to the sin when God brought judgments to it as he promised he would when the people sinned.
God strikes the following with judgments
1. Individuals….Nebuchadnezzar in Babylon and Herod Agrippa in New Testament
2. People/ Cities…. Sodom and Gomorrah\
3. Nations/Countries..Babylonian , Roman and European Colonization of nations
4. The Whole World..during Noah’s flood and Tower of Babel
A keen study through the Bible shows that whenever people sin, the land is defiled. This applied to both Jews and Gentiles.
GENTILE INHABITANTS SUFFERED LAND JUDGMENTS FOR THEIR SIN
18:24 Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you: And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.
Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation,nor any stranger that sojourneth among you: (For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled;) That the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued out the nations that were before you.
God gave the land of Israel to Israel, even though there were Gentile inhabitants on the land, as per the covenant he made with Abraham.
However he warned Israel that if they committed the same sins the former inhabitants committed he would throw them out like the Gentile inhabitants that sinned.
How were those Gentile inhabitants overthrown ?
1. Through War and Captivity- that came through Israel’s armies
2. Through famine and other natural disasters Locusts, hornets, drought, earthquakes
People forget about the walls of Jericho that fell, the nations that were wiped out, all in the name of God’s judgment and fulfilling of his promise unto Israel.
Later on these same judgments came upon Israel when they sinned against God in the days of the judges to the kings and to the time of thee disciples.
Israel has been a dispersed nation for years on end yet the land is theirs because God gave it to them as his land, being the creator of the earth he is the landlord of the earth .
GOD STILL JUDGES TODAY
Today we are seeing nations like Japan and Australia receive harsh judgments.
This is just the tip of the iceberg .God is bringing more judgments to call all to repent. These NATURAL CONVULSIONS AND MAN MADE DISASTERS ARE BEING ORDAINED BY GOD.
For if God did not ordain them , no amount of planning and money can make them happen without his consent.
Thus the real issue bedeviling Christians is that they do not know God and have been duped into believing in a Father Christmas God who never brings evil to the earth.
In fact the scriptures are clear that in these last days people will BLASPHEME AND CURSE GOD FOR THE PAINFUL FERROCIOUS JUDGMENTS.
They will not curse the Illuminati, or White Supremacists or Scientists- they will blaspheme God, because they will know it is him who brings the terrible judgments.
Then, they will kill those who are in repentance and are calling all to repentance in Jesus Christ who will also preach the judgments of God coming on the earth because of sin.
Just because God regretted about the flood that destroyed the world does not mean he stopped judging sin. Years later, he rained brimstone on Sodom and he did not post a regret for that ,meaning, one day he will rain brimstone and fire when the time of judgment is ripe.
So these things happen to let us all know that God is all powerful and is to be feared.
He does and allows these judgments to happen to warn us of the Day of the Lord which is a WOEFUL DAY that no one should desire, for who can stand his indignation ?
In Christ Jesus
