The Root of the Problem :: By Dave Hubley

(There is a special message at the end of this article for those who might happen to read this and do not have Jesus in their life and are looking for peace and a way to better understand the present-day insanity and confusion.)

“I think they’re all going to like me; I think both sides are going to like me,” Trump told Welker when pressed for more details. “What’s going to happen is you’re going to come up with a number of weeks or months, you’re going to come up with a number that’s going to make people happy.” – Donald Trump

So, now we are engaged full-time in the impossible dream and chasing after the wind?

Pleasing people (the inference here being that pleasing [all] people is even remotely possible) is what will drive life and death decisions?!

Within some politically concocted period of weeks designed to “make people happy,” it will be acceptable to murder a developing fetus (Greek for “little child”).

A clear moral decision has now become a political popularity contest?

And all this without any acknowledgment of God.

“And I set my heart to know wisdom and to know madness and folly. I perceived that this also is grasping for the wind” (Ecclesiastes 1:17).

It is God’s “little child” developing in the womb of an adult human female, and that “little child” will also, if allowed by human actions and “laws,” become an adult human.

She or he (that having already been determined by the combining of either XX or XY chromosomes, brought about by an equal contribution of the mother (X) AND the father [X-female, or Y-male], will be a human child.

This fetus, by definition and by God’s design, will NOT be an aardvark, elephant, orangutan, or any other “creature.”

This is a simple and scientific fact.

Is it any wonder that God is beginning to execute judgment on a world that has become so patently deranged?

In a world where science and the Word of God are inextricably woven together, humans blindly insist on validating Isaiah 5:20 despite its being presented as a woe (a cause of sorrow or misery).

“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!” (5:20).

“The fool says in his heart, ‘there is no God'” (Psalm 14:1a).

With each passing day, the inerrant and unassailable Truth of the Word of God becomes more apparent.

So also, do the consequences of ignoring it.

One thing I would point out: the unborn child will not be “happy.”

Neither will God Almighty, El Shaddai, the One True God whom humankind vainly attempts to ignore by making “laws” that disregard Him entirely.

As there always are when people defy God, there will be consequences.

“For we know Him who said, ‘Vengeance is Mine; I will repay,’ and again, ‘The Lord will judge His people.’ It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God” (Hebrews 10:30-31). Emphasis added by me.

Like it or not, God’s Nature has never changed, nor will it ever change. As the below Psalm points out, every living soul is the possession of the Lord God.

“The earth is the LORD’s, and all its fullness, The world and those who dwell therein” (Psalm 24:1). Emphasis added by me.

So, lest one might be tempted (and Satan is indeed tempting people) to believe that they are somehow exempt from this declaration in the Book of Hebrews – no one is.

The root of the problem is hubris and open rebellion against God; however, just as you are subject to gravity, you are subject to Him, whether you like it or not.

The world is exhibiting more erratic behavior on a rapidly escalating scale in terms of both human conduct and in the realities of the natural world.

Jesus Christ indicated these realities in response to His disciples asking:

“While Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately. ‘Tell us,’ they said, ‘when will these things happen, and what will be the sign of Your coming and of the end of the age?'” (Matthew 24:3).

This question to Him was also recorded in Luke 21-7 and Mark 13:4.

As part of His answer to them, Jesus said:

“There will be signs in the sun and moon and stars, and on the earth dismay among the nations, bewildered by the roaring of the sea and the surging of the waves. Men will faint from fear and anxiety over what is coming upon the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken” (Luke 21:25-26). Emphasis added by me.

His response to this question was additionally addressed in Mathew 24:6-7).

“You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. These things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.” Emphasis added by me.

And again, in the Gospel of Mark:

“When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed. These things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places, as well as famines” (Mark 13:7-8). Emphasis added by me.

Nations are defined as ethnic groups, Kingdoms as countries/ governments.

The roaring of the sea and the waves, I believe, has a double meaning (as frequently occurs in God’s Word) in that it is meant literally as in the natural world, but also spiritually as the sea and the waves also represent the rancor and violence of the world’s population as we clearly see everywhere, every day.

In observing current events worldwide, can any reasonable person deny these facts?

Now to the crux of this article.

The existence of God, His Son Jesus Christ, and His Holy Spirit is indisputable, as the Word of God has made clear.

“The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness. For what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world, God’s invisible qualities, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood from His workmanship, so that men are without excuse” (Romans 1:18-20). Emphasis added by me.

If you still doubt or deny the existence of the One True God, considering the eternal consequences, might you be willing to ask yourself this question?

If you are willing to concede that God created the heavens and the earth, do you believe He is also capable of providing His creation with a written revelation of Himself using select humans to record it and then, at His appointed time, to get it published?

It seems to me that the gift of His written Word is a very small physical accomplishment for the creator of the universe and that it has a profound, spiritual, life-saving purpose.

As well, the gift of His Living Word, Jesus His Son, is the means by which He determined, at great personal cost, to offer us so great a Salvation.

As the Savior has always made clear, there is Hope in Him.

In Jesus’ own Words:

“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life” (John 5:24).

This promise was made, not to those who reject His sacrifice to pay for their sins, but to all who will humble themselves and receive Him as the One and Only Savior.

Jesus’ revelation of these prevailing world conditions describes everyday realities here in 2023 and is confirmed by the utter lack of regard for human life that abounds today.

“Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold”(Matthew 24:12).

You do not have to go down with this perishing world in its rebellion against God.

“When these things begin to happen, stand up and lift up your heads, because our redemption is drawing near” (Luke 21:28).

You can be included in this promise by receiving Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.

My friend, what are you waiting for?

The special message I promised you:

For anyone who may read this article and has not trusted in Jesus Christ and therefore has no hope or peace in your life.

You can have hope. You can have the peace that Jesus has promised to all who have made Him their Lord and Savior. The peace that passes understanding.

It requires that you come before God on His terms.

And what are His terms according to His Word?

  • Genuine repentance (turning to God instead of continuing to reject or ignore Him).
  • Confession of sins (that you are a sinner and acknowledge that to God).
  • That you understand that the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23).
  • To acknowledge to God that you are unable to pay that debt.
  • Belief that Jesus Christ paid your death sentence for you on the cross.
  • To believe that Jesus is the Way, the only Way, that God has established by which humans may be saved from the consequences of their sin and rebellion.

God has made it absolutely clear that there is no one who comes before Him, under His terms, that will be refused.

  • No one: no race, no color, no country of origin, regardless of any previous belief system: no one.
  • No matter what your past sins have been, God can and WILL forgive you because He says He will.
  • Salvation is available to everyone without any exceptions.

If you put all your trust for salvation in Jesus, and Him only, you can follow that prayer up by simply saying, “Thank you, Father God, for hearing my prayer and saving me,” because we can trust Him to keep His Word. He always has. He always will.

“Truly, Truly, I say to you that he who hears My words and believes the One who sent Me has eternal life and will not be condemned. He has crossed from death to life” (John 5:24).

There are no answers and there is no hope in the world by governments, organizations, politics or politicians. There are only lies and deception. But you can have the Truth and the peace you seek.

The answers are in the Word of God–The Bible. If you ask God, with all your heart, He will hear you.

“And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:13).
