Of This Generation

This generation is not only rejecting Christ, it is committing the most heinous sins with perhaps an unparalleled defiance and arrogance. We in the former Christian nations and beyond have heard the law of Christ, yet are abandoning it in an apostasy that is unprecedented in scope and in numbers of apostates. Repeated warnings through the forces of nature do not appear to be moving our nations toward repentance. So tears of blood are falling from Heaven on numerous icons and statues—a terrible harbinger of the Great Trial which lies before us.

When my sword has drunk its fill in the heavens, lo it shall come down in judgment. (Isaiah 34:5)
Already, God has begun to purify the earth of wickedness. The sword has fallen through mysterious and incurable diseases, terrible disasters, and war. Often it is a spiritual principle at work:
Make no mistake: God is not mocked, for a person will reap only what he sows. (Gal 6)

The cleansing of the earth has begun. But we must understand that just as in ordinary times, when the innocent are sometimes taken with the wicked, so too will it be during the period of purification. No one but God can judge souls and no human being has the supreme wisdom to understand why this or that person suffers or dies. Until the end of the world the just and the unjust alike shall suffer and die. Yet the innocent and the repentant will not be lost and their reward will be great in paradise.

The wrath of God is indeed being revealed from heaven against every impiety and wickedness of those who suppress the truth by their wickedness. (Romans 1:18)
