The First Sign Of God's Judgment Is Abandonment.
America is in a backslid condition which brings God's judgment. All the wickedness in the world, from homosexuality and abortions, to child molestations and the occult, and so on, are resulting in judgment. When men repeatedly reject God there is a point in time when He rejects them in return. This is called the "wrath of abandonment." This precept is dramatically portrayed in the Book of Hosea.
Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I will also forget your children
19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
Once God has given people over to the "wrath of abandonment" they can no longer think straight. Their minds become darkened and debased and they believe silly, incredible things. This happens when they consistently and deliberately suppress the truth about God's existence no matter how strong the evidence proving God exists.
Many of them are not even willing to look at any of the evidence for God's existence! They would rather believe a lie than to think they may be accountable to the God of the universe. For one thing, those suffering from God's wrath of abandonment become foolish or stupid in their thinking. They can no longer think or reason clearly. Think of it - there is nothing in our experience and scientific knowledge which says that something can come from nothing, or that there can be effects without cause. It evades normal scientific laws. The discovery of DNA should have put evolutionary theory to bed - permanently. DNA demands that creatures replicate themselves according to their kind. The DNA code does not allow a dog to evolve from a fish, or man to evolve from apes.
Yet, in their desperation to deny God many evolutionists came to believe that higher beings from outer space came to planet earth to "seed" the planet with life. (Never mind considering where the outer space beings came from).
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, ((The fool hath said in his heart, "There is no God".))
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.
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.
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;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
Another symptom of God's judgment is that He gives unbelievers over to homosexuality. When women, who have natural instincts to raise and protect their children, resort to lesbianism, they have been given over to their own dishonorable passions. When the steaming bath houses in San Francisco were first revealed as a "petri dish" for bacteria and AIDS in the early 1980s, society's natural reaction was to demand they be closed. Yet, in spite of the evidence for terrible bacterial onslaught upon the human body through homo-heterosexual perversions, we were and are silent. This is because it is not "PC" to speak against homosexuality or extra-marital sex. We have watched them shake their fists in God's eye as they demand gay parades in the heart of Jerusalem.
Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness, who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.
