God is in control and He is the One who we should fear. Not man. The Holy Bible says in Matthew 10:28
Today a co-worker mentioned the fear of North Korea and the US and wars and threats. But Jesus already told us and prophesied this in Matthew 24 that there would be wars and rumors of wars.
In the Bible, when God saw the wickedness of Isreal, God judged them through other surrounding nations. Is God using North Korea to judge the United States? Maybe. The sin of the United States is so bad that God can’t just do nothing. The sin of other nations are bad too. But let’s look at some of the the sins of the United States.
- Acts of Terrorism
- Sexual Immorality
- Pornography, Wicked Establishments
- Corrupt leaders
No one is clean from sin though…but God will punish the wicked. He always had and always will. The only way we can escape the Anger of God is if God puts His Anger on SomeOne else to bear it, and that is who Jesus Christ is and that is what Jesus Christ did for us. That is why there is hope for those who practice those sins listed above. That is why anyone can and will go to heaven in paradise to be with God.
The Bible is clear and doesn’t hide sins, even sins of the people of God. God sees the human heart and will punish those who practice things done in secret. It’s fearful that they will perish…but God desires to save and not destroy. In the Old Testament and New Testament, God wants to save people.
“Lord Jesus, please help North Korea and the United States and Japanese and China and Russia. Only you know what is going to happen for you already know the future. Please guide the leaders of the world to do your will. Please bring down to calamity the wicked. Spare those who seek you and help us Lord, we pray. Amen.”
Thank you Jesus. Maranatha.
