Raging Insanity

When the Lord Jesus encountered the two demon-possessed men on the eastern shore of the Sea of Galilee, they were described as being exceedingly fierce. (Matthew 8:28-32) The many demons that possessed them caused them to behave in an irrational, or perhaps insane, manner. The Greek word used to describe them is chalepos (Strong’s G5467). The only other time the Apostle Paul used this same Greek word, was to describe the Last Days to Timothy. (Second Timothy 3:1)

In my opinion, we are nearing the Last Days and are seeing raging insanity. Let me give some examples:

Toys-R-Us, was a retail chain that sold toys for children. In order to demonstrate how socially active they were, they supported Planned Parenthood, an organization responsible for the abortion, and therefore the death, of millions of babies. Toys-R-Us was supporting the elimination of their customers. That could be described as insanity. At this time, Toys-R-Us, and its related company, Babies-R-Us, have been sold or closed.

The Hallmark Channel is known for its many boy-meets-girl, happy ending movies. The people that watch this channel love these stories. You may be aware that very recently the Hallmark Channel decided to display a homosexual girl-meets-girl commercial and has stated that they would support LGBTQ+++ stories. The management of the Hallmark Channel is purposefully turning their back on their customers. Will they lose money like Toys-R-Us?

In socialized Great Britain, a midwife recently lost her job for stating that only women could give birth. Who better qualified to know this fact than a midwife? But she lost her job because of politically correct social engineers. To say that men can give birth could be described as insanity.

A friend, who is a male, recently visited Princeton University. On an occasion when he went to the men’s restroom, he was surprised to see feminine hygiene products available for use by the men. (!?!?!) Princeton is an institute of higher learning. Princeton probably has a biology department that well knows the difference between male and female human beings. This is insanity! You will be sad to learn that Princeton, whose motto is “Under God’s Power She Flourishes,” was founded in 1746 as a college to train young men to be ministers of the Word of God.

When seeing this insanity, and more, I look forward to the Lord Jesus calling the Church Home. It is becoming obvious that the Church in the United States has lost its primary mission. The U.S. church thinks that its works, food kitchens, homeless shelters, et cetera, are its mission. We are not saved by these works. The mission of the Church is to save souls. Thankfully, many lost souls are being saved in other lands. For this reason, I understand why the Lord has remained patient and has not gathered up His Church in anticipation of the Tribulation.

Dear Lord, thank you for your patience. May your name be praised forever!
