WOE IS HERE


 
 
Woe is Here

 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Isaiah 5:20
 
The sin which is reprobated here is that of "perverting and confounding" things, especially the distinctions of morality and religion. They prefer erroneous and fake doctrines to the true; they prefer an evil to an upright course of conduct. Barnes

When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are not wise. 2 Corinthians 10:12

But be doers of the word, and not only hearers of it, blinding yourselves with false ideas. Because if any man is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man looking at his natural face in a glass;  For after looking at himself he goes away, and in a short time he has no memory of what he was like. James 1:21-24

You have the belief that God is one, and you do well: the evil spirits have the same belief, shaking with fear. James 2:19

And there is a whole lot of shaking going on.

Today the big story is economics and security; the fear of loss of life and goods.

The Psalmist takes another view of this; Jehovah is for me, I will not fear; what can man do unto me? Psalms. 118:6  

It isn’t that there will not be trouble, but strong faith in GOD will see you through. 

The question is, from whence cometh these problems?
 
This is the verdict Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. John 3:19

The defense of darkness is in full sway, for men wish their sin be accepted rather than removed from them.  Woe is here and increasing by the minute. The wrath of GOD is fast approaching.

The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness,
Romans 1:18

Men are not willing to struggle for their deliverance, but rather try to exist being spiritually dead unto GOD with darkness of soul. This darkness is a driving force with powers from the evil one himself.

For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12

Jesus wept over Jerusalem, "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones God's messengers! How often I have wanted to gather your children together as a hen protects her chicks beneath her wings, but you wouldn't let me”  Matthew 23:37

How do you suppose Christ Jesus sees the land of America today?

Woe has come upon us and if the blind are leading the blind shall we not fall into the ditch?
