In ancient days, God spoke through the prophets, giving warnings against the waywardness of those who would disregard the commands of God. Isaiah spoke such a warning when he said:
Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;~Isaiah 5:20-21
Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
And clever in their own sight!
That warning is perhaps never more applicable than in our world today. Just days ago, both New York and Virginia proposed legalization of abortion up to the moment of birth. New York successfully press the proposal into law and Governor Cuomo proclaimed it “a historic victory” for progressive values, before ordering pink lights to glow atop One World Trade Center in celebration. Calling evil good!
Disgusting….but not surprising, given what the Bible tells us will happen in the last days.
Vice President Mike Pence, however, called evil what it is by mincing no words in a brilliant op-ed in the National Review. (Praise God for our VP…a true man of God!) Take a couple minutes to check it out:
Evil will surely increase as the day of Jesus’ return draws near. Today, we see signs the prophets warned about. Our King is coming! Let’s be found diligently about our Father’s business.
