The dying generation

The dying generation

Genesis 6:5-8

The Lord saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time. The Lord regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and his heart was deeply troubled. So the Lord said, “I will wipe from the face of the earth the human race I have created—and with them the animals, the birds and the creatures that move along the ground—for I regret that I have made them.” But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.

This generation is dying, people are going crazy, abnormal things have become normal. Ladies comfortably glorify the devil by exposing their bodies, virgins are ridiculed while the wild and wayward ones are esteemed, men are considered real men when they defile their bodies with sex and alcohol.

Oh, what an evil generation! a generation that glorifies sin.

As I sat patiently waiting for my orders in a restaurant, I observed a loud song playing on the television, the artists featured in this song were almost naked, puffed up in pride and practicing all sorts of disgusting things. As I observed the excitement in the eyes of people as they sang along, I said to myself “why do we laugh at what God frowns at?”.

This generation has lost her sense of reasoning… foolishness is praised and wisdom turned down. Noah was in such a generation but stood out for the Lord. Psalm 1:1 Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers.

Do you laugh at what God frowns at? Do you care about the values God upholds? What you laugh at or what you accommodate shows how well you care about God’s will. Many silly jokes are made today about “men of God” or the church, what is your stand about this? do you participate in it? Will God laugh at such jokes about His body? These things are important brothers and sisters… Think about them.

May God give us the grace never to be a co-laborer with the devil in working against God’s will.
