The state of our society and modern-day culture here in America is sickening, to say the least. It’s no secret that with the spearhead of the 60’s secular leftist/ socialist movement, America has reaped “a whirlwind” of societal consequences that are indeed devastating.
Secular Liberal Pollution
The majority of people look at the surface of our societal ills and gullibly think that things aren’t as bad as they seem. The fact is, though, that our society is contaminated to the very core. The steak - as it were - has been left out of the refrigerator too long, and no “conservative ideology” revival or leadership can restore this rotting corpse (see Isaiah 1:5-6). Once a nation is given over to the basest of ideals (i.e., secular socialism) and moral practices, it is just a matter of time before it implodes on itself in rottenness (see Romans 1:18-32). As one who loves my country I take no delight in declaring this, but the present status of our society and culture compels making an objective assessment. May we as a people learn the lessons of history, and may she be our wise teacher. Every nation that has gone down this path has not survived.
A Steak and Its Environment
When a steak (i.e., humanity) is placed in a refrigerator, the cold environment slows down the corruption and spoiling process (see Isa. 64:6; Rom. 3:23). Even under refrigeration the meat will eventually spoil, but the corruption process is slowed down. Such is the Conservative (Right, moral) ideology.
When a steak is left out at room temperature, the corruption process accelerates due to a higher rate of bacterial growth that takes place in a warm environment. Such is the Moderate (Centrist, compromising) ideology.
When a steak is left out in the direct sunlight and high heat, the corruption process accelerates exponentially. Such is the Liberal (Leftist, secular) ideology.
The tremendous impact from the 60’s counterculture revolution is akin to a steak left out at room temperature. In the last 40 years or so since, the corruption process in our society has increased to an extent such that we can see the radical and fundamental changes that have produced countless social ills and catastrophes (refer to the Red Light District America blog from July 2009).
2006 - The Consummation of a Secular and Socialistic America
In just the first year of the Obama administration, we have seen a deluge of his leftist agenda. 2009 has seen an exponential change in all facets of government, culture and society. Super-socialism, super-spending, fascist polices, nameless accountability, destructive agendas, countless corruption, mass deception, godless arrogance, and so on and so on.
Such rapid deteriorating conditions and a global, “reprobate mind” society are setting the stage for the perfect storm, which is the arrival of the ultimate politician and supreme secular fascist - The Man of Lawlessness. He will seek to change the times and the laws (Dan. 7:24, 25) and establish a global fascist state (Dan. 11:36-39; Rev. 13:14-18). He will make war against God’s people, the realities of Almighty God and His eternal sovereignty (2 Thess. 2:8-9; Rev. 13:1-7, 17:12-14). This man will also go as far as to set himself up as god and to be worshiped by all (Matt. 24:15; 2 Thess. 2:4; Rev. 13:4, 8, 12). He and his global fascist state will shortly after meet their doom at the glorious Second Coming of Almighty God the Son, Jesus the Messiah/ Christ (Dan. 7:26, 11:45; Rev. 19:20, 19:11-21).
Our godless nation - and world - is presently on a collision course smack dab into a terrible time of judgment called the Day of the Lord, or The Great Tribulation (Isa. 24; Joel 2:30-32; 1 Thess. 5:31; Matt. 24; Rev. 6:6-17).
The Bible describes the global conditions of the last days as follows:
Jesus stated: And because iniquity (lawlessness) shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. (Matt. 24:12)
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. (2 Tim. 3:1-7)
Let not your heart be troubled. All these things must be. The end result of the corrupted and totally spoiled steak (humanity) will be the Battle of Armageddon, in which all nations will go to war against the Eternal Sovereignty and Lordship of Almighty God. Christ at His second coming will decimate all these global armies with His Word (Zech. 14:3-4; 2 Thess. 2:8; Rev. 19:11-21). He will then judge and cast out all unrepentant and unbelieving humanity that survives from the entrance into the 1000-year earthly kingdom of Jesus Christ (Dan.9:27; Joel 3:2; Zech 14:16; Matt. 13:29-30, 40-43, 47-49, 25: 41-46). Then shall the Kingdom of Heaven be established forever in Righteousness and Justice! (Isa. 2:4, 11:1-11; Dan. 7:14, 18; Zech. 14: 20-21; Mal 4, Romans 14:17)
Even now Almighty God is calling all humanity (the rotting steak) to repentance and to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, who is the Savior of all mankind. Only Christ can deliver one from the pollutions of the heart (Jer. 17:9) and of this doomed world (Gal. 1:4).
Do you know the Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior? Call on Him today, won’t you? He will deliver you from the bondage of sin and the wrath that is appointed for this sinful world.
In these Last Days may you look to Almighty God and His Word for the encouragement, hope and help you need. Place your trust in Him today! You will never be the same!
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. (Matt. 6:33)
The Kingdom of Heaven is truly at hand!
