‘there is no remedy for this illness’

Congress Draws Criticism Over First Pro-Gay Caucus-The Christian Post

__________________________________________________

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed [it] unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, [even] his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified [him] not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. Romans 1: 18-32

In 760 BC God sent the prophet Jonah to the great city of Nineveh. The purpose for sending him was to proclaim the pending judgement upon Nineveh because of their wickedness, unless they would repent of their grievous sin.

The entire city repented in sack cloth and ashes and God spared this generation of the judgment proclaimed.

Nahum was sent some 148 years later to pronounce the same judgement upon the great city, but this time there was no opportunity for repentance. In the last few verses of the book of Nahum it says…

“Thy shepherds slumber, O king of Assyria: thy nobles shall dwell in the dust: thy people is scattered upon the mountains, and no man gathereth them. There is no healing of thy bruise; thy wound is grievous: all that hear the bruit of thee shall clap the hands over thee: for upon whom hath not thy wickedness passed continually?”

From the example of Nineveh, we can see a couple of things…

  • the first is that God will pity and forgive a wicked nation that turns to him in repentance.
  • the second this is that it is possible for a nation to move so far into sin that there “is no healing of thy bruise”, in other words the sin is so grievous and vile that the only remedy for this nation is God’s judgement.

When a nation finds itself in this condition of spiritual decency, they are in danger of hearing the message that God sent forth from the mouth of his prophet…..

“Now is the end come upon thee, and I will send mine anger upon thee, and will judge thee according to thy ways, and will recompense upon thee all thine abominations.” Ezekiel 7:3

God gives us a in depth picture of the how broad this gross sin and wickedness did span.

And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,  Son of man, say unto her, Thou [art] the land that is not cleansed, nor rained upon in the day of indignation. [There is] a conspiracy of her prophets in the midst thereof, like a roaring lion ravening the prey; they have devoured souls; they have taken the treasure and precious things; they have made her many widows in the midst thereof. Her priests have violated my law, and have profaned mine holy things: they have put no difference between the holy and profane, neither have they shewed [difference] between the unclean and the clean, and have hid their eyes from my sabbaths, and I am profaned among them. Her princes in the midst thereof [are] like wolves ravening the prey, to shed blood, [and] to destroy souls, to get dishonest gain. And her prophets have daubed them with untempered [morter], seeing vanity, and divining lies unto them, saying, Thus saith the Lord GOD, when the LORD hath not spoken. The people of the land have used oppression, and exercised robbery, and have vexed the poor and needy: yea, they have oppressed the stranger wrongfully. And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none. Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, saith the Lord GOD. Ezekiel 22:23-31

  • prophets & priest- there was no spiritual direction. The prophets and the priest should have been light (spiritual compass) but there was none so darkness prevailed.
  • princes- those in a position of leadership were ravening the people and the land for dishonest gain. Sounds like our government today in America. Republican and Democrat alike.
  • people- the people were left to their on devise and wicked way. Sin abounded on every front.

My friend, how can we not see that America is immersed in this vile condition today? The men and women that have been elected to a positions of leadership and given the responsibility of making laws that govern our country are liken to ‘the one that is in a position of wisdom and honor’ that King Solomon was referring to in Ecclesiastes….

“Dead flies cause the ointment of the apothecary to send forth a stinking savour: so doth a little folly him that is in reputation for wisdom and honour.” Eccl. 10:1

The congressmen and women that have aligned themselves with and propagated this vile sin of homosexuality are bringing forth a stinking savour. Can you smell it?

  1. Excellent. I am in 100% agreement with you brother. Keep it up!!!

    • Greetings John. Thanks for stopping by ‘A Word From Malachi’ The private email that you sent was a source of encouragement. We are living in a day when one cannot afford to stand upon the unadulterated word of God. For too long the church in America has played pity-patty with church and the word of God and now we are living on the brink of a purging in which the dross shall rise to the top. May God give us courage and strength to stand in a way we have never considered before.

      Please take the opportunity to read other article and share you heart.

      God Bless
