As Adam and Eve were kicked out of the Garden of Eden, then so will God eject us from this land.
Even as the fall holy days outlined in Leviticus 23 begins in earnest, the world is determined to go the opposite way. The day before yesterday, WLWT and others reported the Supreme Court “Ruling makes same-sex marriages legal in Indiana, 4 other states“, thus setting up the rights of the minority of citizens over the legal democratic rights of the majority, which is what the founding fathers envisioned and enacted.
Of course, it would have only been a matter of time anyhow. Mankind’s governments cannot enforce justice because they themselves are not just. All governments that have sprung up have eventually fallen, which should be a warning to us all.
There is only One Just Judge, and He outlined in Deuteronomy 28 several blessings for keeping His Law. However, He also outlined a lot more penalties for breaking His Law. Why is the list of penalties larger than the list of blessings? Because in the end He knew that Israel would not obey, and neither will Israel’s descendants. We are just now reaping the reward of our disobedience, including monetary problems, the inability to fight our enemies and terrorism.
However, in another chapter of the same book, God also promised mercy — but with a condition:
29 But if from thence thou shalt seek the Lord thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.
30 When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the Lord thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice;
31 (For the Lord thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them.
Whatever remnant is left, i.e., that are not killed, starved to death or overtaken by plagues, can still turn to God while they live. The trouble is, they could have done so before and could have avoided such a fate.
Then again, when you view the Book of Revelation, it is stated that the mighty men would rather die by having the mountains fall upon them than to repent before God, so I guess that in general mankind’s hard-hearted nature requires breaking by extreme means.
