Jeremiah 52:13-14 And burned the house of the LORD, and the king’s house; and all the houses of Jerusalem, and all the houses of the great men, burned he with fire: And all the army of the Chaldeans, that were with the captain of the guard, brake down all the walls of Jerusalem round about.
The feeling of security is something everyone loves. In America, for so many years, many people have felt the absolute sense of “I am safe here.” However let’s look at the past.
Israel had a temple built by Solomon for God, by God’s own design. One of the most spectacular structures said to have ever been built. When it was finished, God Himself said He would dwell there among His people. God’s Home, you might say. Therefore, for many years, God had protected the land from destruction. Nothing and no one seemed to be able to get to them. Their enemies could not defeat them and all who lived there felt safe. Babylon was a far away country as for travel at the time. Security was not on their mind, because they had always felt secure. Their ancestors had followed God, so God protected them. They felt so safe, that they began to forget, God was providing their security. They had begun to follow other gods. Oh, they still with lip service honored God, but He was one among many now. It was because of their disobedience and rebellious life God allowed His people to be taken slaves, the land to be destroyed, and His very own dwelling place including all the articles inside to be destroyed and taken.
As you look at America and the way it’s gone, how safe do you feel NOW? Pray that your elected officials might come to know God and do His will.
We need to fall on our knees once again and ask God to give us the courage to stand up in the face of sinful, liberal lies that tell us, sin really does not matter. My friend, it matters greatly. If not to us, it matter to God. We must understand the danger of sin.
Can you see the dangers of sin?
