Good Grief!

IDOK DEVOTION FOR THURSDAY, JANUARY 17, 2008

Indulge me a momentary soapbox relative to how warped, twisted, perverted, reprobate, perverse, depraved… I could go on but you probably have figured out by now, in my opinion, something is very wrong! I am here at the screen fresh from viewing a portion of Comanche Moon with my hubby. Portions of this movie are graphic to the point of showing human throwing human into a roaring fire. And then in the next scene obviously a human is beating a bear with a club and another human mortally wounds the bear by gunshot (no doubt to put the bear out of misery), we the viewers are spared seeing this atrocity. How sick are the minds of people when it is acceptable to depict the torching of a human but staging the beating of a bear would bring swift repercussions!! GOOD GOSH! People, wake up and get a life!!!!
And yet how foolish of me to be surprised or appalled when we have laws to prosecute humans for cruelty to dogs, cats, horses, whales, etc.while it is perfectly legal to chemically scald, dismember and mutilate babies in their mother’s wombs! Please don’t misunderstand me, cruelty to animals is SIN and should not be taken lightly but WAKE UP PEOPLE! HOW STUPID CAN MAN GET?!
More and more I am seeing how RIGHT Father was to FLOOD this place as recorded in Genesis. And now I think WE, His People, should FLOOD it again while we have time with the WATER of His Word. ONLY His Word can heal the depravity of a mind that would support the murder of babies in the womb and in the next breath be outraged and breathing out ‘corporal punishment’ against someone for just ‘staging’ the beating of a bear! In the words of Charlie Brown: Good Grief!
And in the Words of our Father: 2 Corinthians 5:
19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
20 Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.
21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
I am certain we cannot heal the mind of any depraved soul, yet the Word of God can but how shall they hear without a preacher. Sisters, brothers, we got to get busy learning how and doing this ministry of reconciliation that He has called us to.
Romans 10: 14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?
Father, I know everybody is not going to hear, everybody is not going to change their minds about abortion and hatred and lust and the host of other sins but please give us Your Holy unction to be available for You to work through to rescue one soul at a time. Holy Spirit please work in us so we can open our hearts and be filled with You, so filled that we will love people to Jesus, love them to safety from their own blinded minds. Thank You for speaking to us and now Lord please keep after us, don’t let us forget.
And don’t let us fail to remember these; sometimes, like now we don’t really know what to pray because the needs are so great in these. Help them today Father for Jesus sake. And protect our IDOK Troops in mind and body and spirit; bring them home safe and sound and please bring this war to a successful conclusion; bring Israel to Peace, America to Repentance, Your Church to revival and Your Choice for President to office. Thank You Father. Amen and Amen.
