When we lose focus God is always so gracious to bring us back into divine alignment that is if we are obedient. He always sends someone with a rhema word to speak into our spirits. I’m grateful to be back on purpose this morning. This season is a time where many shakings are continuing and evil assignments are being hatched. Children of God who pray, tithe, stay in divine alignment and worship the living God have nothing to fear though. God resources are vast; and there is nothing he can’t do “For with God nothing shall be impossible “Luke 1:37.

 

We are dealing with individuals who are very wicked in their hearts. Jeremiah warns us “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it” Jeremiah 17:9? God alone knows the thoughts of the heart (1 Corinthians 2:11).The Bible is letting us know that the heart of man is desperately wicked; there is no other entity that is so wicked. You can’t tell what a man is thinking or plotting in his heart. When you want to know about a product you go to the manufacturer of that product to get information,whether its in the product pamphlet or by calling the hotline. If God who is mans creator say man’s heart is wicked? Who are you and I to say otherwise.

English: The Earth was corrupt before God and filled with violence, as in Genesis 6:5: “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.”; illustration from the 1728 Figures de la Bible; illustrated by Gerard Hoet (1648–1733) and others, and published by P. de Hondt in The Hague; image courtesy Bizzell Bible Collection, University of Oklahoma Libraries (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

 

Let’s look at Genesis 6:6-8 “And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.”

 

 God himself has said that he regretted making mankind because of their continual wickedness. Some things we know about God’s character, he values his words above everything else. “Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away” Luke 21:33.So when God says his heart is grieved, he is not saying that lightly. The word repent here is interesting, the basic definition of repent is to turn from sin. We know God cannot sin because he is holy. So God is saying something else about repenting, to understand the Bible we have to take words literally and study them.

 

 Repent:

 

  • to turn from sin and dedicate oneself to the amendment of one’s life
  • to feel regret or contrition
  • to change one’s mind
  • to feel sorrow, regret, for what we have done

 

 Our loving heavenly father has said he regretted making us because of our wicked ways; he has been calling us to change from the beginning of time. Ever thought what would have happened if Adam repented of his sins? There is a but though, “But Noah found grace in the sight of God.” God always leaves a remnant for himself, he will always raise up a Moses, an Abraham, a Joseph, a Daniel, a Noah and a Deborah because he loves us so much even if we don’t deserve his mercy and kindness.

 

 The carnal man is wicked in his heart because he has not been regenerated by the Holy Spirit. We can’t walk righteously without Gods help.Our works won’t do it, the bible declares that even our perceived “righteousness is like filthy rags” Isaiah 64:6. Wickedness has become pervasive throughout every strata of society you can’t escape from it. It’s prevalent in every institution known to man, our schools, homes, social networks, churches, government and hospitals. What do all these places have in common? The common element is man; man is the problem, not the institutions or place. So who must change? It’s you and I, man? God does not have a problem; he is trying to help man solve his problems.

 

 There is one adversary since from the beginning of time that is helping mankind to rebel against God. You see this adversary hates with a passion, he tasted glory but now he will never have it again. We are told he was kicked out from heaven, he rebelled first,(1John 3:8) he is trying to get you to disobey God because he wants you to die in your sin and trespasses. I liken Satan to a man who has contracted aids. That man knows he is about to die, he is so wicked that he goes and spreads the virus around knowingly because he wants to destroy other lives. This is sheer madness, and that’s how Satan operates. “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly “John 10:10. You can take Jesus at his word; I’m living proof of that. My life has been characterized by a series of crisis that has no basis in reality. Some of the issues I have faced have been of the mysterious kind; one can surmise then that they are of a spiritual nature. 

 

One cannot discern wickedness by looking into someone’s face or eyes. It is much more subtle that that, it is hidden inside the heart. God knows the creatures he made; he alone can look into their hearts and convict them of their sins. What God does when he sends the prophet or his ministers is to remind man of his word and to repent. When a person’s cup of iniquity runs over God will pronounce judgment on such a person.

 

 Do you know how many burial grounds are littered with people who have been destroyed by others? These people think they have gotten away with their evil and secret deeds. Aha, they should think again, there is coming a day when that book is going to be open and every man will be judged, oh yes it is coming .Not even Satan himself can stop it from happening. You see the child of God should never fear Satan, God has his ways of bringing about our deliverance, as long as we obey him. There are divisions of wickedness, I have experienced some of them myself but by the mercy and grace of God I’m here to give God unending praise.

We can’t negate America’s role in the world.The eyes of the world looks to America. Americans are not just trend setters,most of the world people’s, cultures and traditions  find refuge on American shores. A unique melting pot,many challenges and difficulties that  need permanent solution,certainly .My own two cents,what President Obama has been able to do , amidst the issues he’s faced is truly remarkable.I think his election both times are more than historical footnotes.No one succeeds alone but President Obama’s success shows the power of dreams,tenacity and determination.God ordains rulers for his purposes hmm….What seems impossible to man is possible with God.As I’ve said before we are at a crossroads in history.I believe what the world needs now is leaders that can unite the populace.The world and its people are hurting like never before. Are we able to give more of ourselves unselfishly to the issues we need resolved.  I’ve said before this generation has vast resources and still untapped potentials.Time and history are not the only judges,the whole universe is waiting expectantly for our response. God is watching us,waiting also for our response.This time we as human beings will be judged on our ability to be selfless. What are you gonna do about you? The old is boring, it’s time to be honest with ourselves and embrace the winds of change happening not just in America but around the world.Its a huge ground swell sweeping the entire planet.Get in the flow .Blessings!
