Just look around at what is going on in this lost world. Depravity and perversion is normal whereas standing for good and the Lord is considered evil. Here is a good verse that describes these days:
20 “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”
How did things get this bad on earth? In days past society seemed to have some Godly morals where good was good and evil was evil. What changed to get to these current depraved and evil days?
The simple answer is God and His Word has been utterly rejected. God has been kicked out of our society, our schools, and the majority of peoples lives. Right now the world is facing the abandonmnet wrath of God. This means they have rejected the Lord, and the Lord has rejected them. The Lord then gave the people over to their sin and they developed reprobate sinful minds.
This did not happen over night. In my opinion, the beginning started with the sin of evolution. This is a lie/deception that says God did not create the heavens and the earth. Instead, it says everything happened by chance over billions and billions of years. Evolution teaches a big bang which formed the universe. And on earth pools of slime somehow formed (by chance). Then out of those pools of slime life evolved. This kept happening until our present day. They say God had nothing to do with it. I say this also is a direct insult to God the creator. This is how lost mankind started to reject the Lord and the bible. Simply by rejecting Him as creator they gave themselves over to lies and deception.
This is an attack against God and His creative ability. You see God created the heavens and the earth just 6000 years ago. He did this over 1 week. But the lost reject this and instead put their faith in foolish evolution. This spread to schools where this evolution deception was taught as fact. There was no room the truth of creation. I have to say this was the first major offense against the Lord with the goal of kicking Him out of society.
From there God and prayer was removed from schools. So was bible reading. The Lord was not welcome in schools around the world. Abortion, the murder of babies came next. After, over time came the sin of sodomy or homosexuality. These people left their closets and openly flaunted their sin. They called it "pride". After time it became normalized and sodomite marriages were allowed. Guess what: the decline did not stop there. Next came pedo's after children. They called themselves: minor attacted persons. The decline could be seen throughout society in the music and entertainment. Rock groups have given altar calls for satan worshippers to come forward. This decline continued downward. The next evil to come forth was for people to become trannies. Men dressed and pretended to be women. The same thing was done by women who dressed and pretended to be men. Today, the average lost soul does not know the difference between a man and a women. People say the confused who dress up like women, are women. In fact, claims are made that there are 73 different genders out there. The bible knows only two of them. All the rest are mental disorders. Finally, children were mutilated as their sex organs were removed as they were turned into transgenders. How more sick can things get?
The word for the downfall of society into depravity and perversion can be called abandonment wrath. This is when a people honor and glorify God and slowly reject Him and cast God, the bible, the Lord Jesus out of their society and lives. As they do this, the Lord abandons them over to their sin and allows them to become depraved with reprobate minds.
This abandonment wrath happens before actual wrath and judgment comes upon a nation or any people or the world.
So here we are today. We are at the very end of the world with the Lord Jesus about to come back. Right now the world suffers from abandonment wrath as sin and depravity are unrestrained. Furthermore, after this the wicked on earth will be judged and destroyed by the wrath and judgment of God.
Lets look at Romans 1 as it describes abandonment wrath.
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
Because of sin and wickedness comea the abandonment wraqh and judgment of God upon this world.
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
The first stage of falling away is to deny God and His creative ability. God with extreme detail and complexity created the heaven and the earth and all that is therein. Yet, lost mankind chose to remove this from their mind. The Lord says they are without excuse for denying the great testimony of His creative power.
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
Literally, mankind became proud and considered themselves "wise" as they forsook the Lord and dreamed up foolish theories. And the theory of evolution is a very foolish theory. But the lost believe it as a fact.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
Notice in verse 24 that God gave them up to uncleanness and sin. When the Lord gives people up and over to sin, that is a very bad thing to happen. The next stage in abandonment wrath is that lusts come forth. Lost people develop unclean lusts in their heart. They worship the creation instead of God. Hence they dream up terms that done exist like.. mother earth. God is denied further. As time goes on lost people develope a love and desire for sin and depravity.
The next verses show the end of abandonment wrath. Here God gives the lost over to vile affections and they do all kinds of evil. Good becomes evil and evil becomes good in such a society. Again in verse 26, we see God gives them up unto vile sin and affections.
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
Here we see full abandonment wrath. People who reject God have been given up to a reprobate mind. They are also involved and accept extreme sexual perversion. They do all kinds of evil things and take pride in themselves. They appove others also doing such wickeness and the enemies of all this are those who are aware of this evil going on. Those who believe in the Lord and the bible are rejected. Abandonment wrath is the last step before actual judgment and wrath comes.
So right now the world is experiencing abandonment wrath. Extreme sin and deception is a worldwide thing. The next and final stage is for the actual wrath and judgment of God. But first comes the rapture of the saved church. After that the restraint of evil is completely removed. Then the antichrist will be revealed to this lost world. He will rise to world power and confirm a covenant of death and hell with Israel. This starts up the 70th week of Daniel's prophecy. This is also known as the time of jacobs trouble, the Day or the Lord, or the tribulation period. During that time, the wrath and judgment of God comes on earth. You may read about it in Rev 6-19.
Now is the time to be saved. Salvation is today as tomorrow may be too late for you. First, repent by admitting you are a lost sinner before God.
23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”
Realize that sin pays a wage, and that wage is death. There are 2 types of death: 1... physical death 2... eternal death and separation from God. This is torment forever in the lake of fire. See this verse:
23 “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Realize that God has a free gift of salvation that is available to all willing to receive it.
16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
As many as trust in the Lord Jesus alone for salvation are saved and have eternal life. After this life is over, They have a home in heaven, forever.
12 “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:”
So do not wait. Choose to be saved now. You have a short time on earth to make this decision. Choose wisely.
If your heart is ready right now, here is a suggested prayer:
Lord Jesus. I admit that I am a lost sinner in need of salvation. I confess that you died on the cross and was raised from the dead after 3 days and 3 nights to pay for my sin. Right now, I ask you to come into my life and save my soul and give me eternal life. I trust in your alone for salvation.
