What terrible consequences there have been for generations since satan first deceived humanity. Still today satan deceives us to think that having more things (money, houses, cars, tvs) will give us happiness – and in capitalism it seems the only way to have more (a better job) is to take away from others. The survival of the fittest.
We Christians have a better offer – because God promises to provide for all His children. We do not need to take from each other. Jesus said we will know who His followers are, because they will love each other and bear fruit.
All the while it is the enemy of humanity, the rebellious one, satan, who comes to steal, kill and destroy lives. How can satan do this? How can he freely roam this earth and ruin lives? Because too few Christians actually care enough to do something about it.
It is Jesus who is able to restore lives. He came to give us life abundantly.
The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows). john 10:10 (AMP)
It is Jesus who has the power to snatch people from the fire, but too few people care enough to partner with Jesus to actually make a difference in this world. We simply must partner with Him to avoid a soddom and gomorrah situation. We must care enough to bring Jesus into the lives of people around us.
And He saw that there was no man and wondered that there was no intercessor [no one to intervene on behalf of truth and right]; therefore His own arm brought Him victory… Isaiah 59:16 (AMP)
He saw that there was no one, he was appalled that there was no one to intervene; so his own arm worked salvation for him … Isaiah 59:16 (NIV)
God wants you to intervene. He is appalled when no one takes action and He is then forced to take action Himself to stop further corruption. But Plan A is for you to do something.
It is not enough for you to take care of yourself or you family – which you must do! – but it's important for you to care for those around you.
What problems are there in your community, in your nation? Where is trouble brewing? What should you take action on? Abortion? Drugs? Prostitution? Pornography? What action are you taking to potect the people in your nation from these things?
