Difficult Times Will Come: And Why?

But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,  holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; avoid such men as these [2 Timothy 3: 1-5] NASV 
I Put My Trust In Thee O Lord!
Difficult times are upon us and yes this nation as a whole has a form of Godliness, but that is just about as far as it goes. Just 55 years ago there was a different America. One that, for the the most part, lived by the word of God. Parents went to church with their children and prayed together. There was a saying then, which is so true, even in this day and age it is still true, the family that prays together stays together. There was discipline in the home and in the schools. Bible reading and prayer started the school day. The biggest crime in schools was chewing gum. Remember that? God's blessings was on this country and we prospered.  The land was before us and God was with us. We recognized that America was a Christian nation and our laws came straight from the Bible. The family was a unit that made America strong, because training started there, in the home, by Godly parents. Children were taught Godly values and were to taught to work. Nothing was handed out on a silver platter.  It was those Godly values that made America great. You can not have a Godly nation if you do not raise Godly children!

So what has happen since then to this nation?  We have turned into a anything goes nation with just about no morals at all. We have forsaken everything that is Godly. The family unit is just about gone and we are told by our leaders (Hillary Clinton) that it takes a whole village to raise a child, when we know that the scriptures tell the parents {not a whole village} to raise up a child in the way they should go. Now we have so many homes that do not even have both parents. There is no Godly values taught, no love shared, and most of all no discipline. Then we wonder why all the drug problems, murders, assaults, rapes, and other crimes have come upon us!

 There were homosexuals years ago in this country but it was a shameful thing and it was hide in a closet because most people knew it was wrong and went against God's word. But now the homosexuals parade in the street with there lovers, holding hands, getting married, having their own rights {The Christian's rights are being trashed} and laws made just for them, even wanting their own Bibles. Our children, who do not hear the word of God in school anymore, are being taught in school that being a homosexual is just a different life style, when in fact it goes against the very word of God. What hurts me the most is that in some churches the homosexuals stand behind the scared desk and preach. To me that is an abomination. This ungodly act not only is against God's word but goes against nature itself. God did not make Adam and Steve, He made Adam and Eve. This goes to show you just how depraved people are becoming. Much more could be said about our school systems, parents, and our children, but I think that the reader can get what is being pointed out here.

In those years gone by, the taking of a unborn life was against the law. The laws of the land and God's law. Now it has become legal and unborn babies can be, if the mother chooses, a throw away.  Babies that are just about full term are being aborted and it is now legal. One day the blood of those unborn aborted babies will cry up from the ground to their creator and the Lord will avenge them with His wrath. It amazes me that in this country it is illegal to kill some types of whales, certain animals, and other species but it is okay to kill unborn babies. Am I missing something here! I do not think so. Then we wonder why our country is in the shape it is in.

There was a time in this country when Christmas carols were sung in the schools.  There were song on the streets and in stores. There was mangers on lawns and at churches to show the true meaning of Christmas. The sales people in the store would greet you with "MERRY CHRISTMAS". There was a warmth that filled the air. Now due to political correctness we no longer here those words, instead it is happy holidays because we do not want to offend anybody. When the very person that is offended is the most important, JESUS CHRIST the savior of the world. How much longer will it be before there will be no more church bells ringing on Sunday morning because of political correctness. The crosses are already being moved from out side and inside our churches, song books with the sacred songs we all loved are being removed, replaced by the Koran and some churches are now being called campuses.

We now have mega churches that have thousands in attendance every Sunday. In these churches you have homosexuals, people committing adultery, fornicators, and who knows what else. Do not get me wrong it is good that they are their, but they go in a sinner and come out a sinner and think that they are saved because they do not here the whole word of God. They have their ears tickled by preachers that are looking for the big bucks and large attendance and care less about their souls. The people go to have their ears tickled and to look for their pie in the sky. What the church really needs today is an old fashion pouring out of THE HOLY GHOST were people are brought under conviction and are saved! We need preachers that are not afraid to speak the truth. We need preachers that will cry out against sin! We need churches that when you go in looking for something such as healing, deliverance, salvation, or a refreshing you can find it.  You can find it because the true love of God is there. Only just a few of those churches left today in this country. Those old brush arbors by the side of the road are gone and so are most of the camp grounds. Oh how my soul misses those days! If we want this country to turn around then lets get some preachers like the ones of old who are not afraid to stand up and tell you like it is!

We have, for the most part, ungodly leaders that make the laws of this nation. We now have, in my opinion, a ungodly leader in the White House, who has a purpose in mind and that is the finial destruction of this nation. He goes against anything Godly, anything that is right, and he has his own agenda. That agenda is the destruction of this nation as we know it. Piece by piece he is doing it as most people sit by and say nothing. In fact some professing Christians voted for him, stand by him now and all be cause of his skin color. I'm not a racist for saying that. Never have been, but it is the truth. He is a pied piper (the master of trickery) leading the people, who will follow him, to destruction. Those of you who want can follow him, but I will follow Jesus, my master, and my soon coming King!
