Exodus 40:34 "Then a cloud covered the tent of the congregation, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle."There is a deep dark unwelcome cloud that becomes a hiding vale, relative to God's creation the heavens and the earth. The wisdom of men will never be able to lift that vale. Almighty God alone will ever know the actual beginning ; and He alone will ever be able to measure time, and know the ending. Our present year of 2012 can only be a guess. But if people are wise they will acquaint themselves with what has happened in the history of these many years, and gain an understanding of just what might happen in the very near future. There is mention more than once where God brought evil nations against His own people to punish them when thy became wicked enough to bother Him Right now we don't have to believe the Bible alone. It is coming from many sources and many news writers are showing that today's world, including all nations are becoming the most sinful people the world history has ever known. So please consider this question; How close do you think God may be hurting enough over our world's sin to again let evil people over come and punish us?Now it would take a lengthy book to list the prevailing sins of our world today. I intend to keep this short, but just a few sins that must be mentioned. Same sex marriage, kids are not permitted to pray in school, homosexuals are given equal rights, the largest crowds the world has ever seen gather to find pleasure but God is never mentioned. And hundreds more, but do you believe our Loving God can afford to even excuse and forgive these few?Friends, will you try to show how God is being completely left out by most; and the respect and praise for Who He is and what He has done is never mentioned in those large crowds. Can we continue like this and let God hurt like this?
