Are You Doing What Is Right In Your Own Eyes?
"In those days there was no king in Israel, everyone did what was right in his own eyes." Judges 17:6 When you have a nation of people each "doing what was right in his own eyes," then you have anarchy. When the law of the land is to do what is right in one's own eyes, it will become a disaster because what is right in one man's eyes, may be terrible in another's and vice-versa. If there is no standard, man is left to himself to decide what is right and what is wrong. At this point in the history of Israel, the people adopted the ways of their ungodly neighbors, and the nation descended into idolatry. God brought terrible judgments upon them and that would bring them to their senses for awhile. But because there was no standard, they would stray back under the influence of the idolatries of the lands surrounding them, until they once again were turned over to their enemies. It was a sad time in Israel's history, and continued as such until God appointed a righteous man, a faithful man, king David, a man after God's own heart, to rule over them. As long as David was king, the country enjoyed the blessings of God as they "did right before the Lord their God." America has had a standard from its inception ...until this generation. America was founded upon the Judeo-Christian ethic, the Bible, the Word of God. On the great buildings in her capital city and even upon her currency, are Scriptures attesting to the fact that America was "one nation under God." And it remained so for many years. What evil was done was rejected by a godly people. What evil was done - was done behind closed doors, for America would not put up with known evil. America was blessed beyond any nation that ever was upon the earth. She enjoyed freedom and prosperity greater than that of any other nation down through history. In the 1960's that began ever so slowly to change. An atheist woman mounted a campaign to remove prayer from all public schools, and the Supreme Court of the land finally bowed to her arguments and prayer was banned from all public schools. In the 70's, a push was made to grant women their "rights" and allow them to murder their babies before birth. In the 80's, an affliction called "Aids," came upon the homosexual community, bringing this subject up before the American people, but homosexuals began demonstrating and publicly flaunting and parading their sin before the American people, demanding their "rights." Anyone who disapproved had angry insults hurled at them, making those who disapproved - the enemy. America no longer had the Word of God as its standard and society descended to "anything goes," everyone doing what was right in his own eyes. What was right gradually lost out to the anarchy being perpetrated upon the American people. God sent many men to speak to the people and draw them back to the standard they had held for so long. But the people grew in their love of "freedom," demanding their self-determined "rights," and rejected the men of God, making a mockery of them. So God turned them over to their enemies. In 2008 God placed an evil man as their leader, who led the nation in total anarchy. This man, a son of the devil, drove hard the acceptance of all that is opposed to the God who had raised them up, and he began a process of ridding the nation of their Constitution and made it a "free-for-all" with no standard upholding them, everyone doing what their evil hearts desired. "And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God GAVE THEM OVER to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, ...who knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of DEATH, not only do the same but also APPROVE of those who practice them." Romans 1:28-32 The evils this man perpetrated on America woke some people up. They began a push-back and cried out to their God. Then the Lord put a man into the White House who stood for all things Biblical, a man who acknowledged God and strove to bring back some semblance of righteousness. It was as though a window of time was opened, a time for repentance - for those who would – because judgment will not be put off forever. God has not forgotten the murdered babies and the evil people who stick an upturned finger in his eye. Judgment WILL come. The last chapter of America is yet to play out, but very dark clouds are rolling in. When God gives a people over to their enemies, that people will suffer terribly. When God gives a people over to death, there will be no way to escape it, and death will come to America, for the millions of lives they have shed. For anyone who can hear, I plead with you to not conduct your life doing what is good in YOUR OWN EYES, but surrendering to the only true Lawgiver who has set the standard we are to live by. You reject him at the risk of your life and your eternity. The destruction has not yet come, for God is still extending mercy for those who will repent. But that day and hour is about to come when there will be no more mercy. Already we are hearing the hoofbeats of the coming Apocalypse. It's almost upon us. All the signs he foretold are there. All of them. Surrender to God and in him you will find "life, and that more abundantly," for his mercies are great and his ways lead to salvation in all its fullness.
