Light In The Darkness: October 17, 2012

by Pastor David Grey

“See, I am setting before you today a blessing and a curse — the blessing if you obey the commands of the Lord your God that I am giving you today;  the curse if you disobey the commands of the Lord your God and turn from the way that I command you.” – Deut. 11:26-28

I sometimes wish that I could preach only about wonderful, joyous and heavenly things, but what is occurring in our nation does not permit me to do so.

When one is standing in a burning home surrounded by loved ones is not the time to comment on the beautiful décor.

If you do not agree that God’s judgment is upon our nation, then read no further.

I believe that it is and as a pastor, I am among the watchmen who must sound a warning. Ezekiel 33 is clear.

“When…the watchman sees the enemy coming, he sounds the alarm to warn the people. If those who hear the alarm refuse to take action, it is their own fault if they die. If they had listened to the warning, they could have saved their lives. But if the watchman sees the enemy coming and doesn’t sound the alarm…he is responsible for their captivity. As surely as I live, says the Sovereign Lord, I take no pleasure in the death of wicked people. I only want them to turn from their wicked ways so they can live. Turn! Turn from your wickedness, O people of Israel (America)! Why should you die?”

The upcoming election is very, very important and I hope that you will vote in a wise and informed way for the candidate you believe will be best for our nation — the one who seems to offer the wisest course of action in our present situation.
