Nothing changes, everything remains the same…

For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope. Romans

Comments, thoughts and reflections welcome

Hosea 10

The nation belonging to God was a luxuriant vine, freely putting forth fruit.  As the fruit increased, the altars increased; as the land got better, the standing-stones improved.  The heart of the people is divided; it will bear the guilt. Spoken originally of Israel but so true of America today…

The Lord God will break down the altars and destroy the standing-stones.  For now it will be said, “There is no ‘king’ because the Lord God was not feared—and what could a ‘king’ do for us anyway?  Words are mouthed, swearing falsely, making treaties.  Thus judgment spreads like poisonous weeds in the furrows of the field.  Sounds like an election year in America…

Altars of gold, income?  Where is trust placed?  in wages? In the works of our hands?  Standing-stones of history are ‘improved’; rewritten to suit a new mentality.  Leaders no longer rule; they oppress and destroy what is good, just and fair.  The land is filled with words of hate and judgment from all sides.  The truth remains that there is nothing new under the sun.  And evil is called good and good is called evil; all one must do to see it is to read comments following a post or news item…

What is effective for real change and justice is turning back to God, the Creator, in repentance and prayer.  The message goes out to all; believer and unbeliever alike.  Most will harden that heart of the people and reject turning back naming it old school, seeking a new thing, satisfied to continue the arguing and fighting over words, each side claiming right and justice.  There is a way that seems right but the end of it is death; there is a narrow way and few find it.  Following the masses tells which path is being followed.  Truth is available and is eternal; it takes asking, seeking, knocking, and receiving.
