Signs of the Times?

 I see many scoffers these days (dare I say even those who say they are Christians are likewise parroting these words?), who don't want to see what is blatantly happening all around us, and say "So what? It has been going on forever, nothing new under the is as it always has been"...., but is it truly?

2Pe 3:2  That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:
2Pe 3:3  Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
2Pe 3:4  And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
2Pe 3:5  For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
2Pe 3:6  Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
2Pe 3:7  But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

2Ti 4:2  Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
2Ti 4:3  For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
2Ti 4:4  And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
2Ti 4:5  But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.

Gay Pride Week

This week was "Gay Pride Week", and it began last Sunday, which coincidentally was Pentacost, the anniversary of the birth of the Church. I don't believe in coincidences, actually. I believe that there are people who deliberately chose Pentacost as the day to begin "Gay Pride Week". Pride is the wickedest of sins because it blinds us from seeing how truly repulsive our sins are before a holy God. God hates pride. So to have pride in behaving in truly abominable perversion and to openly and brazenly throw it in God's face on Pentacost is truly hateful as well as stupid. Do you think our nation deserves a spanking for such things? Do you think any of us are "innocent", truly? We all need forgiveness on a daily basis. Pride has no place in any of our lives, for anything that we do, unless our pride is in what Jesus does, and then it isn't really pride, it is thankful humility that does not need parading.

Tomorrow (Saturday) is Gay Day at Disney World in Orlando Florida. I pray that God will prick hearts tomorrow toward truly repenting and sorrowing over all sins being flaunted in His face. I pray for the courage and strength and conviction needed to speak up as God gives me wisdom.

God Speaks

Oklahoma began "Gay Pride Week" on Sunday and gets hit with the worst tornado ever on Monday. Coincidence?
