In three short months, just like He did with the plagues of Egypt, God has taken away everything we worship.
God said, “you want to worship athletes; I will shut down the stadiums.” Let’s look at the NFL for example. If you are a New England Patriots fan, which I happen to be, people in New England have worshipped Tom Brady for years. If you’re a Boston Red Sox fan, which I also happen to be, how could you not have worshipped Big Papi? He almost single-handedly brought the Red Sox their first World Series win in nearly 100 years back in 2004. Then of course there is the statue of the great Bobby Orr, idolized by Boston Bruins fans for being one of the greatest in the NHL. Yes, I was born and raised in the northern suburbs of Boston Massachusetts. What gave it away?
These athletes have one thing in common with hundreds of other athletes across the country and over the years. Let’s face it, the great athletes throughout American history have been put on pedestals and worshipped by their fans.
“You want to worship musicians; I will shut down civic centers across the globe.” Let’s go back a few years and I’ll suggest one of the greatest Artists of all time, Elvis Presley. If there was ever anyone in the music business who was worshipped more than any other, it was Elvis. Well, the Beatles may have been right there with Elvis in terms of being worshiped, but these two stand above most others in terms of being idolized.
“You want to worship actors God said, then I will shut down theaters.” Out of all the forms of entertainment in the world, I would suggest that actors stand above all others in terms of being worshipped. Although there is a small percentage who are not Liberals in the Hollywood scene, the majority are Liberal Progressives who have little to no interest in worshipping God. Instead they worship their money and their popularity. Fans put pictures of them on their walls. They proudly hold enormous gatherings and gleefully hand each other trophies, recognizing their own greatness. The industry then televises this enormous show of egos to the rest of the countries in the world, so they too can see how awesome these celebrities are and worship them. Many of them believe it is their passage to then ridicule conservatives and our values, which happens to be a direct reflection of their weakness and insecurities. God-fearing? Far from it.
“You want to worship money; I will shut down the economy and collapse the stock market.” As we’ve all heard many times throughout our lives, “money is the root of all evil.” Has a year in your life ever gone by where you haven’t heard about someone who has stolen, embezzled, or schemed a way to acquire money they have not earned? For certain, money can provide a lot of good things for humanity. Unfortunately, it contributes in many ways to the evil which exists in this world, one being the illegal drug business for example.
Listen as God says to us, “You don’t want to go to church and worship me, I will make it where you can’t go to church.” Modern society has gradually eliminated God from so many places where He was recognized but is no more. Such as courts, schools, most government institutions, not to mention most nativity scenes on the grounds of town halls across America. The PC culture which has been shoved down the throats of conservatives and Christians by the ACLU, bares much of the blame for where our society is at today.
The Christian share of the U.S. population is declining, while the number of U.S. adults who do not identify with any organized religion is growing. There’s plenty of blame to go around. Sure, the Liberals and Progressives certainly deserve much of the blame, but Conservatives haven’t done enough to stop the evil which has come upon us.
“You shall have no other gods before me.” This is expressed in the Bible in Exodus 20:3, and elsewhere. “Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am the Lord your God.”
This pandemic, which has spread to every corner of the earth, has it been put here by the Deep State? I’ve expressed many times my belief, that it is their last card in the deck to take America down.
As a “believer”, I must question my own thoughts around this pandemic and why it’s here.
“If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
Whether you believe it was just a virus or something much larger than us, either way, the most important aspects of our culture and way of life have been stopped dead in their tracks. Perhaps we need to take this time of isolation from the distractions of the world and have a personal revival, where we focus on the ONLY thing in the world that really matters, Jesus.
