I have been quite shocked recently at the state of affairs of the world. At how unashamedly evil everything has become. There has always been evil, but it used to be taboo, it used to be secretive. Secret societies, hiding behind secret codes and symbolism. But it seems that now, nothing is taboo, everything is allowed, and so incredibly blatantly, almost proud of the evil.
What has shocked me recently, is that it is no longer just the world and the media anymore either. It’s not just the worldly systems we have always deemed as evil. It has come very close to home. It has come into families, friends, good people. It has churned my stomach. Literally making me feel sick, nauseated.
Anakin Skywalker choosing the evil side and becoming Darth Vader used to just be a movie. Out there. Now it is in my very inner circle. It is very close to home. It is so painful to watch. Upon being challenged, the response is so arrogantly agreeable, yes, I have chosen evil, and I don’t care.
What I want to say about it is, when you are hurting, your response will be to seek comfort. Don’t give in to food, alcohol, drugs, physical attention. I know it will give you the quickest relief, but it so quickly becomes an avalanche you cannot stop.
Jesus said He is sending a Comforter. Turn to the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, Father God made tangible. The ultimate comfort you can find.
The tragedy is this, when I lamented with God over the state of the lives of some of my friends, God reminded me that the divide would become greater. That He is sifting. Please don’t even make the tiniest decision away from God, because the divide is increasing. Just one degree, just one moment of responding in the flesh, just one time of not forgiving, is going to become great leaps and bounds.
The time is very, very short. Choose God. Every time.
