God has always warned us to return to him before He brings a nation down with all of HIS Furies.
He passively gets our attention sometimes, giving us the opportunity to REPENT and STOP!
When the NATION of Israel left the simple laws of God and showed gross disrespect for a life they suffered. Notice why there was so much Civil unrest in their cities. It was GOD Troubling them!
2 Chronicles 15: 1 The Spirit of God came on Azariah son of Oded. 2 He went out to meet Asa and said to him, “Listen to me, Asa and all Judah and Benjamin. The Lord is with you when you are with him. If you seek him, he will be found by you, but if you forsake him, he will forsake you. 3 For a long time Israel was without the true God, without a priest to teach and without the law. 4 But in their distress they turned to the Lord, the God of Israel, and sought him, and he was found by them. 5 In those days it was not safe to travel about, for all the inhabitants of the lands were in great turmoil. 6 One nation was being crushed by another and one city by another, because God was troubling them with every kind of distress. 7 But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.”
Reminds me of our civil unrest all over the world this year, along with pestilence, plague, the many fires, storms, and earthquakes.
America, Europe, and other nations practiced Christianity at one time nationally. But now Christians have to accept laws that go against God's covenants, they can't say a word. Babies are killed in the third trimester now, legally and marriage has been changed to be between anyone that wants to join together legally.
WHAT DID ASA AND ISRAEL DO?
2Chronicles 15: "8 When Asa heard these words and the prophecy of Azariah son of[a] Oded the prophet, he took courage. He removed the detestable idols from the whole land of Judah and Benjamin and from the towns he had captured in the hills of Ephraim. He repaired the altar of the Lord that was in front of the portico of the Lord’s temple.
9 Then he assembled all Judah and Benjamin and the people from Ephraim, Manasseh and Simeon who had settled among them, for large numbers had come over to him from Israel when they saw that the Lord his God was with him.
13 All who would not seek the Lord, the God of Israel, were to be put to death, whether small or great, man or woman.
Sounds like Covid-19! We should follow the guidelines, wear masks and social distance, this could be a form of protection, thoughtful obedience!
Our Statesmen should join the Christian communities and ask Jehovah God for HIS help, repent, turn around and stop. Haven't heard anyone but ministers and Christians look to God.
These are just my thoughts on this situation. I wish ALL good health and may our GOD be with us!
