Are we doing it for the acceptance of others? Or are we doing it for the Lord as praise to Him and because of his acceptance? The Bible tells us in 1 Peter 2: 19-23 “For it is commendable if someone bears up under the pain of unjust suffering because they are conscious of God. But how is it to your credit if you receive a beating for doing wrong and endure it? But if you suffer for doing good and you endure it, this is commendable before God. To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps. ‘He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth.’ When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly.”
We find that you organize to polarize and then you begin to nudge. Within a very short period in time it appears that Russia has taken center stage and the United States has taken a step back in fact at the G20 when all of the world’s leaders came forward, the United States President entered 45 minutes late. If that wasn’t enough, the United States is organizing against Israel. A future potential tragedy can be averted if God’s people will humble themselves pray and turn from their wicked ways, resulting in God hearing their prayers and healing their land. It’s important to take special note that this Russian jet flew over the USS Donald Cook for over 90 minutes and made twelve turns. This was a clear sign.
We must catch a clue. We have sinned. When you see these things and understand that all we need to do is humble ourselves repent as the church and get the sin out of our life God can heal our land.
