EVERYTHING IS FINE ?
So how do you explain that on August 29th 2014 our president promised US that the world is “ much less dangerous “ now than it was 25 or 30 years ago . He went on to explain ,” the world has always been a little bit messy…..we’re just noticing now Because of social media and our capacity to see in intimate detail the hardships that people are going through “.
In other words , it is just the technology that makes the world SEEM worse than it really is , so don’t worry , nothing to worry about , everything is fine , America has never been this strong or indispensable .
Amos 6:11 says , “ Woe unto the CHIEFS of nations that are at ease in this time of trouble “ !
But it is not totally the fault of our leaders , we have an “ ostrich mentality “, if we don’t acknowledge the problem it will go away , like the ostrich that hides its head in the sand to ignore the incoming tide . He actually believes , if he doesn’t see the tide, the tide won’t get him .
Almighty God’s truth will awaken US comfortably now , uncomfortably later .
Isaiah 30: 9 is appropriate here , “ this is a rebellious people , lying children , children that will not hear the law of the Lord, which say to the seers , see not and to the prophets prophesy not unto US RIGHT things , SPEAK UNTO US SMOOTH THINGS , PROPHECY DECIETS ”.
In other words ,we are rebellious , Almighty God’s laws are not in our heart , we don’t want to know the consequences of this ,we don’t want to hear it ,we can’t handle the truth , lie to US , deceive US into a false sense of security !
Another word for false sense of security is complacency , or not taking action , when action is needed . Satan loves complacency , in fact he’s counting on in . 1st Peter 5: 8 is fitting here , “ be sober be vigilant for your adversary ,
the Devil, walketh about as a lion seeking whom he may devour “ .
Just as a lion in the wild catches and eats the one who is weak ,
( in humans case spiritual weakness will suit his purposes nicely ) or the one who is distracted ( on things other than the danger) or slow to act ,( complacent) .
