SIN HAS BLOSSOMED INTO A ROD OF JUDGMENT
Behold, the day! Behold it has come! Doom has gone out; the rod has blossomed, pride has budded. Violence has risen up into a rod of wickedness. Ezekiel 7:10,11
For centuries the seeds of Adam's sin have flowed through the bloodline of mankind until finally arriving in these last days to blossom into the righteous judgment of God. Like a poisonous root planted in the hearts of man sin spreads out into a toxic garden of ruin and destruction.
Have you noticed more violent crime, super storms, earth quakes, sickness, financial disaster and worldwide mayhem? The reason is that sin has blossomed, in other words the weight of its consequences have spread out causing havoc throughout the earth. There is a demonic influence attached to every sin and the primary function of a demon is to rob, kill and destroy: more sin, more demons, more demons, more destruction.
The earth is reeling under the tremendous weight of sin and the powers of darkness are being released into the midst of it spreading the judgment of God. God ultimately controls all things including the devil and demonic powers and He judges sin; sin carries the penalty of judgment. Darkness is certainly covering the world and a deep darkness has descended upon the hearts of mankind producing death.
Make a chain, for the land is filled with crimes of blood, and the city is full of violence. Therefore I will bring the worst of the Gentiles, and they will possess their houses; I will cause the pomp of the strong to cease and their holy places shall be defiled. Ezekiel 7:23,24
In the above referenced scripture God is telling Israel that He is going to send the worst of the Gentiles among them, and this has come to pass as the Muslims have captured the temple mount and erected a mosque in its place, the once Holy temple of the Lord, defiled by the gentile. Since 911 terror has broken out upon all the nations and Islam is spreading its deadly poison at an alarming rate.
Terror is foretold throughout the prophets in the last days and the terror of the Lord is being released through Islamic terrorists spreading their gospel of fear throughout the land. It seems that nothing can stop their suicidal vengeance on anyone who sympathizes with Israel, their lifelong ancient foe.
They shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, from the terror of the Lord and the glory of His majesty, when He arises to shake the earth mightily. Isaiah 2:19
Throughout the Old Testament God sent Israel's enemies against them when they sinned against Him. The same gentile nations that came against Israel have once again been sent into the earth to wreak havoc on the son's of disobedience who refuse to surrender to God and accept His Son's gift of mercy and grace.
God's righteous judgment on the pride and greed of man is being carried out by the terrorists of today. In the physical realm it is Islam and in the spiritual it is the powers of darkness. Because the sin of mankind is greater now than any time in history, it has multiplied into a monstrous force destroying all the nations of the world.
The sins of mankind today have greatly surpassed the sins of Sodom and Gomorrah and the sin of Noah's day and the judgment of God was brought down swiftly against them. We are entering a time of great judgment but at the same time a great harvest of souls will come forth into the light of God's glory! Now is the time to prepare!
But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.
Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? II Peter 3:10-12
