It is getting harder and harder to live in this world where there are so many unrighteous people standing up and marching for wickedness and openly proud of themselves. I’ve been thinking about Lot lately. The Bible tells us that Lot (vexed his righteous soul from day to day because of their unlawful deeds). He lived in a terrible place and lived among those who lived wickedly and committed evil openly. Today many are doing evil deeds and they don’t seem to blush about it either. Today they had a women’s march where their hats represented ……; well not going to say it. But they don’t seem to even know why they are marching and others are praising this kind of evil behavior. John 16:2-They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. 2 Timothy 3:1-5-This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
Jesus told up to take up our cross and follow him. Sometimes we have to bear a heavy cross and live in a world that evil abounds. Satan has blinded the eyes of those that don’t know Jesus as Lord. They think they are doing right but they are doing wickedness. Isaiah 5:20-Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Read this about Lot: 2 Peter 2:4-8- For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds.
Luke 9:23,24 says, “ And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.”
Matthew 19:29-And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.
