2 Corinthians 4:4 KJV
In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
Where is God? What is he doing? Why is he allowing all of this destruction upon the earth? These are questions that we hear repeatedly as we see so much destruction in this world. From my viewpoint, nothing is getting better in this world. It is waxing worse and worse just as God told us it would. We have shootings daily, shortages everywhere, prices skyrocketing, hate rising, division increasing, and much, much more.
One revelation we need is that it is not the God of the church that is behind these things, but the god of this world. They are not one and the same! 2 Corinthians 4:4 says, “In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not.” When Adam sinned in the garden he gave satan the authority that God had given him to rule the earth. It is satan who is running things in this world, not God! God has no more authority over our lives and country than we give him! John 10:10 tells us that, “The thief (satan) cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I (Jesus) am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
The price that is being paid in our country is the high cost of sin! There is no scripture in the bible that promises the blessings of God while forsaking him and his ways! As Christian’s, we must always remember that we live in this world, but we are not of this world. Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus, the true source of life and blessing, and you will have peace in this world full of evil and turmoil!
