The Spiral

Over the past few days I have watched the news.  Like the rest of the world, or at least the world I like to reason with in my head....I am in shock and just raw.  But the "world" does not think like I think.  I am sure that there are some who could care less if a bunch of homosexuals were killed.  I am sure that some out there might even be cheering that a radical terrorist struck another blow to the land of the free and the home of the....not so brave anymore.  As a believer in Jesus and a follower of Him, I am watching before my eyes a spiral of ugliness unknown in my own lifetime.  Do I agree, support and encourage the lifestyle of homosexuals.  No.  The Bible speaks against this choice in behavior and as a follower of Christ...I do too.  Do I think they should have been shot to pieces??  No.  Cold hearted murder is just as wrong and sinful.  The morals of this country are slipping so fast I cannot keep up with the spin cycle of values and core beliefs that were a part of my growing up.  As a Christian, I know what I believe and hold too with a tight-fisted grip.  I just hold on to Jesus.  I do not understand this world we live in today.  But I do know that everything that happens....everything.  It all sifts through the hands of God.  The Bible tells me that not one sparrow falls that God does not know about.  He knows the very hairs on my head.  Yours too.  He knew that this world would spiral out of control and cling to anything that sticks its ugly fist out.  Satan is the great deceiver.  He is the adversary of all that is Godly and good and pure.  The dark to our light.  My heart breaks when I see these mamas crying on the news just looking for their sons in a midst of the nightmare that was in Orlando.  I have prayed for them and cried for them.  The pain.....I cannot imagine.  All I know is that instant 49 souls were ushered into eternity.  I did not know one of those peoples hearts....I make no assumptions.  I just know the spiral is spinning faster and faster.  Just like water in a tub.  God makes no bones about anything in His Word.  None whatsoever.  Do I obey Him all the time??  No, I do not.  Do I sin?  Yes, I do....each and every day.  But Praise Jesus...He convicts me of my sin.  The Holy Spirit reminds me of the divine words of The Lord and the loving kindness He extends to His children.  Do not fall into the spiral.....turn to Jesus
Romans Chapter 1: 18-22
18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools.

Romans 1:28-32New International Version (NIV)

28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 32 Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.

This is the Word of the LORD, people....
