Signs of the times
God doesn't change. Nor does human nature. We, like Israel, tend to forget that God (not clever people) is the One who provides food and freedom. So, when we today ignore His ways and follow our feelings and thrills of the world, He may well withdraw His protection and allow us to face the natural consequences built into His creation. [See 1 Corinthians 10-1-13] Many will then recognize their need for His grace and appreciate His wise, loving and sovereign care for His people. [See America's Spiritual Slide]
"For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light....
"See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is."
