Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed by fire and brimstone out of heaven from Almighty God, after He had given up on the two cities. What a fearful thing, that the Almighty would give up on a group of people!
History proves that nations grow morally lazy, irresponsible and indifferent. Moral integrity is not cheap, and the price of its maintenance exceeds the average person’s willingness to pay.
I have observed intelligent people who do not care about national morality. They are completely unconcerned. You present evidence of grave danger and they will mock you and laugh at you, dismiss you with the wave of their hand and not invite you back. They don’t care about the lessons of history. They only wish to indulge in pleasure, leisure, entertainment, excitement, comfort, distraction, erotica, etc. Live it up today and to hell with tomorrow. They see no need to consider otherwise.
A roof that is not properly maintained will eventually allow rainwater to compromise the structure. Rotting and termites begin to undermine the soundness of a once solid building. If left unattended, it will fall to the ground on a given day sometime in the future.
While the structure stands, the damage could be repaired. Year after year the building continued to stand as the forces of nature slowly but steadily ate away at its integrity. By appearance all was well and the owners grew careless. They neglected regular maintenance and refused to put out the money for a new roof. Barely noticeable, sagging occurred under the weight of it all. A few more years passed. One night creaking and groaning preceded the sudden collapse of the whole thing spreading dust and debris.
Revelation 3:15- I know your works that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were cold or hot; so then, because you are lukewarm and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of my mouth; because you say I am rich and increased with goods and have need of nothing, and don’t know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked. I counsel of you to buy of me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white raiment that you may be clothed; and that the shame of your nakedness do not appear; and anoint your eyes with eye salve that you may see.
America and many other nations have been living a life of carelessness and indifference before the Creator. He has been very patient and now His patience wears thin. Many professing Christians are living their lives carelessly thinking all is well. WARNING WARNING! Our roof has been in a state of disrepair for many decades and the damage is being ignored by a careless indifferent public, who do not wish to see.
Oh careless one, please open your eyes and SEE. If you will not hearken to the voice of wisdom and warning, your destruction will come on a day that you do not expect it, and you will be eternally LOST. I care enough about your soul to take the time to sound the alarm. Know Christ and live.
