Prophecy - Signs

Rebecca Droeger

In my last article, I illustrated how fierce the political scene has become in modern times.  The majority of the politicians I discussed played cut-throat games to retain or gain power.

Their ruthless tactics were aimed at eviscerating their opponents.  These politicians had no problem throwing someone from their own team under the bus if that teammate could not help them win their race.

What is more disturbing is America is a Representative Democracy.  These politicians are reflective of our society because they were voted into office by a majority of America’s citizens.

Evidence of society’s vicious behavior can be seen in news outlets everywhere.  Even in one of the smaller, big cities like Indianapolis, not a day goes by without local news reporting on murders, rapes, robberies, or police indiscretions. 

Just last week, my own sister-in law was victim to a car-jacking.  This was at a suburb of Indianapolis in a fairly quiet neighborhood.  What’s even more horrifying is that the thieves weren’t your normal, run-of-the-mill thugs, but teenagers; Teenagers with guns and vicious hearts. (Praise be to God that she is safe.  She also had On-Star; so they were able to catch all but one thief.  She was able to get her car back and most of her items.)

As the birth pangs of our Lord’s soon coming return for His Church intensify, so do the traits Paul warned Timothy to look for in man as the signal:

Timothy 3:2-5 “For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,  without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;  having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.”

Even bullying has become so vicious, new laws have to be made to keep up with the consequences of the relentless taunting.  From cyber-bullying, to video texts, the whole world can now witness the humiliation of the vulnerable and different kids in society.

While many news stories have focused on the homosexual teens who have committed suicide as a result of this type of bullying, other teens have committed suicide as a result of bullying as well.

Bullying nowadays differs greatly from when we were younger.  Sure, the strange, unusual or weaker appearing kids are still targeted; but nowadays, it’s more public, it’s far more reaching, and it’s much more sadistic.

Plus, the bullied kids do not have or are not aware of the strong Christian support groups that were much more accessible a few decades ago.  Even if they have heard of them, they may not understand that some of these groups would not sit in judgment over them. 

The bullied homosexual teens could have thought that many Christian groups would not have helped them because of the publicity over Christians opposing same-sex marriage.  What they do not understand or is never conveyed to them by mainstream media is that many Christians love the sinner, but not the sin.  Since the message of judgment is conveyed, these bullied teens may feel they have nowhere to turn.

Also, relationship dynamics are different now versus back when we were younger.  Communities were much closer knit with families living closer to one another.  Families, church members and neighborhoods did more things with each other and were often composed of people that lived in the immediate vicinity.

With people living further apart, not gathering as much as they used to, and as a whole, becoming more distant with God and their Church congregations, many teens do not have the same security net that was once available. 

Many times, their own parents are not involved in their lives at a level that conveys the unconditional love that God offers to His children.  How could these kids possibly know that everything is going to be o.k. in the end if they do not have the stability that God offers; knowing that everything will be o.k. in the end and that He reigns: 

2 Corinthians  4:15-17 “For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God.  For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.  For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;” 

Until Jesus comes and removes the Restrainer, unrepentant man will continue to wax worse and worse:  Timothy  3:13 “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.”  Take comfort in knowing that as the World grows worse, we grow closer to the time He will redeem us!
