(Word Press tells me that I signed up to start blogging five years ago today. It took me a little while to settle in, but the time has flown. I’m thankful for all the new friends I’ve met here. It’s been a wonderful experience!)
Isaiah 9:18.”For wickedness burneth as the fire; it shall devour the briers and thorns, and shall kindle in the thickets of the forest, and they shall mount up like the lifting up of smoke.”
Lawlessness is like a wildfire that turns on itself and burns itself out. Any nation that becomes lawless is doomed to destroy itself. This is what was happening in Israel.
It is also happening in America today. All the violent, angry protests are an example of lawlessness. Yes, they have the right to free speech; however, destroying others’ property is lawlessness. They are a law unto themselves, and at some point their allegiance to such lawless behavior will be their downfall.
No one can shake a fist in God’s face and expect to win.
