From what little glimpses of Gods’ character I have had, I have beheld the burning intensity of both love and holiness; mercy and justice. I do not know how they are held together, but they are. I think this is why the prophets of old had an almost schitzophrenic revelation – moving from the burning fire of judgement to the burning heart of love, and back again. Words do not adequately describe.
Thinking of this, and in light of a nations refusal to turn from sacrificing their children to molech, I wonder Lord, how long? How long can we escape judgment? How do You stand it, how do You reconcile mercy and judgment? It is beyond me.
I wonder whether the US Supreme Courts’ failure to turn from some 30-odd years of infamy could be a tipping point? I do not know, but I do think this kind of thing is more important to a nations spiritual state than we give credit for.
Neither Israel or Judah were spared, do we think it will be different for us?
Pray that we might yet turn, before it is too late.
I’m not even going to discuss Canada. Here, I believe you can effectively get an abortion any time, for any reason. That status quo is not even up for debate.
Lord have mercy, Christ have mercy, Lord have mercy.
