History repeats itself
Regarding the letter of dear editor entitled “Trump doesn’t get it”: neither do most people blaming Trump for it. When we forget history we are doomed to repeat it. The Bible is the best history book in the world. It’s the most accurate and doesn’t change.
Read the prophets when God sent them to warn God’s people. Judgment would come if the people didn’t repent of their greed, corruption and turning away from God’s laws. Isa. 1:3; The ox knoweth his owner and the ass his master’s crib, but Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider. Isa. 1:7; Your country is desolate, your cities are burned with fire; your strangers devour it in your presence, and it is desolate as overthrown by strangers. Also, read verses 4-6.
There’s nothing we can do about it with all the money in the world. God can’t be bought. It’s all His. And science won’t solve the problem unless they turn to God and get the people to repent and turn.
The prophets tried to get the people to turn but they rejected the prophets and even killed some of them and said to tell us something good; we don’t like the bad things. God said he was in control of the plagues, the drought, the fire, the seas, the wind.
God called Ezekiel to give warning to the people and if he refused, their blood would be required at his hands and if they wouldn’t repent their blood would be on their own heads. Man hasn’t changed.
Amos 5:6; God will break out like fire and there be none to quench it. (droughts, fire) Amos 4:8; He called for the waters of the sea and poureth them out upon the face of the earth. l The Lord is His name. (tsunamis, floods, hurricanes) Seek the Lord and you shall live. But since many don’t believe in God, they won’t believe in His laws and regulations. So face His judgment and don’t complain because you were warned.
The reason for the judgments is because of the wickedness of man, not burning fossil fuels. It is greed, corruption, immorality, dishonesty; If you will be merciful, God will have mercy on you.
The kingdom is promised to those who will be willing to suffer for the cause of Christ. Let’s quit playing church and get converted and strengthen the brethren, and proclaim the truth of his word. Spending more money to stop fires, floods, drought, storms, will not stop God’s judgment. People getting their hearts right with God will. History repeats itself. Clyde Edds, minister Jessieville
