This morning, in lieu of the endlessly depressing TV news, my husband and I watched a documentary about the "most dangerous places on earth to live" due both to natural and man-made hazards.
Most of the places represented as being "dangerous places to live," were due to mankind's carelessness and stupidity - including nuclear test sites which have been rendered completely uninhabitable for hundreds of years after the tests....
The ones that struck us the most were places that worship "strange gods" - such as in Nepal (where most people are Buddhist and Hindu) which, in certain parts, suffers seemingly endless landslides, and is filled with corruption, isolated political violence, and severe poverty (to list just a few) - all in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic...
The documentary highlighted some villages along the "sacred" Ganges River (worshiped as the goddess Ganga in Hinduism) which flows through India and Bangladesh, that suffers deadly pollution levels.
A lifeline to millions who live along its course, the Ganges suffers from pollution for several reasons, including, in part, the increase in the population density, various human activities such as bathing, washing clothes, the bathing of animals, and dumping of various harmful industrial waste into the rivers. And let's not forget the religious ceremonies where floats containing dead bodies are set on fire and simply left to sink into the waters....
The Torah reveals that YHWH used to order entire cities of pagans killed. He provided mankind with HIS Divine Rules - and most of the world has ignored Him.
He never said, "find 'religion' and make up your own gods!" He said HE was the ONLY God, and that there is only ONE way to receive eternal life - and that is through the shed blood of His Divine Messiah (John 14:6) Anything else is nothing more than "religion"....
So, is it any wonder that we are in the end times now, in the midst of this huge warning sign called "COVID-19" ... with both man-made and natural disasters of "biblical proportions" (wars, fires, floods, earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, etc) threatening the entire world by causing major destruction and desolation?
MANKIND HAS BROUGHT ON these things! And that is why we were given scriptures such as the below:
Matthew 24:5-7 - You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. (CJB)
2 Timothy 3: 1-2 - But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy.... (CJB)
Mark 13:7. But when you hear of wars and rumors of revolutions, do not have fear. This is bound to happen, but is yet not the end. 8. For nation will arise against nation and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be earthquakes in various places. And there will be famine and uprisings. These things are the beginning of sorrows. (AENT)
Jeremiah 51:7 Babel was a golden cup in the hand of YHWH, making drunk all the earth. The nations drank her wine, that is why the nations went mad! (ISR)
Zephaniah 1:18 - Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of YHWH. And by the fire of His jealousy all the earth shall be consumed, for He makes a sudden end of all those who dwell in the earth. (ISR)
The time to turn to God is NOW! Look around you; listen to the news - WE are the problem! It's too late to try to "fix things." We're as bad or even worse as people were "in the days of Noah" when YHWH wiped out the entire earth by flood....
The damage has been done. The world is decadent, self-centered, and godless - and ALL those "with eyes to see and ears to hear" can do is to turn our hearts to YHWH/Yeshua and start living according to Torah - because, in the end, that's ALL that matters. It is those obedient few who will get to enter into Eternity.
