Smoke, Fire, And Lessons for a Sin-Stained World.

Zechariah 14:6
And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark:

Smoke and somewhere in there is a fire. The smoke can come so quickly that any in its path can be overcome before they can make a move.

Once inside the smoke - all sense of direction is lost.

Sin is like that. Like the skies of Texas are today colored by the smoke of wildfires, the vision of a people becomes cloudy from a nation given over to sin.

Right and wrong blend into gray by use of justification and situational ethics.

If everyone is doing it, then it must be okay.
We must be tolerant. Homosexuality is no longer sin.

In other words, because we are caught in the smoke of rampant sin, the Word of God is thrown out for the more satisfying opinion of humans.

The problem, behind that smoke is fire. An unquenchable fire of evil bent on destroying mankind.

In the fifties, divorce and affairs were condoned. The sixties and seventies brought us free love and relationships. No longer do we hear the words adultery or fornication.
The eighties on have brought us the word 'gay' instead of homosexual.

I worked for a medical billing company in 2000. In the diagnostics book, homosexuality was diagnosed as aberrant behavior - That has now been taken out. Changed because society has decided it's ok, even lauded, to be homosexual. They can't help it. That's what we are told anyway.

Now, listen to this! There is a move for pedophilia to be taken out of the same diagnostic books. It should no longer be looked on as an aberrant behavior.

See the progression? Sin, like fire, is never satisfied until it can burn all that can be burned.

Pray for discernment and wisdom. Turn from wickedness and flee evil. Read the book of Jude. Proclaim the good news. And watch for the coming of our Lord.

23And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.

Revelation 16:9
And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.
