Before Destruction

Today’s lesson is brought to you by Proverbs 18: 12. I know there will be those of you who do not believe in God or the Bible and that is okay. However, after much prayful thought and sleepless nights, I feel that since social media has been a platform for hate, destruction and vitriol is it time to go in a new direction. That is one of love, God and the results of sin. I have sat quiet too long and not spoken out about my yardstick. So, if this lesson reaches one person and changes them, then God’s work is fruitful.
So back to Proverbs 18:12 “Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honor is humilty.” Ladies and gentlemen we are on the eve of destruction. We see people who have no respect for the property of others, who have no respect for the lives of others and who have no respect for the history of this country. Their hearts are haughty, self serving and destructive. They go to and fro looking for ways to destory the country. They use the 1st Amendment to justify destroying everything in their wake.
We as a nation have become haughty, selfish and self serving. We as a nation and as a world have lost humilty. We have in the course of becoming haughty and self serving have turned on each other like a pack of ravenous wolves at the carcass of a dead deer.
Proverbs 16:18 tells us this, “Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.” We have not learned anything throught the rise and fall of the great civilizations of the world, They became proud and haughty, truly believing they were mighter than God. They believed that anything was okay and that what was wrong was right and what was right was wrong. If the facts of history didn’t suit a faction they either destoryed it or re-wrote it. Example Egypt go back and read some of their history. Some of the Pharoahs statues were torn down and their writings scratched out and written over. Hundreds of years from now if the earth is still around those who study the past and dig up history- you know archeologies, those guys, they will see how foolish Americans were, how sad they were in the fact that some believed they could hide the parts of history that did not suit them.
Parents are told to train up their children in the way they should go and when they are old they will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6. Sadly, it would appear that some parents have trained their children to be destroyers and haters. As they grow old, this will only become more evident, it will become generational. So the hate and destruction will continue until, we are overtaken by outside forces or God gets enough and destroys us himself. Something to think about. #God,#destructionofAmerica,#trainingupourchildren
