Evil is Good and Good is Evil

You have wearied the Lord with your words. Yet you say, “How have we wearied Him? “In that you say, “Everyone who does evil is good in the sight of the Lord, and He delights in them,” or, “Where is the God of justice?” Malachi 2:17 NASB

So now we call the arrogant blessed; not only are the doers of wickedness built up but they also test God and escape.'” Malachi 3:15 NASB

Unfolding before our very eyes. The day of the Lord is near. What are we to do?

Consecrate a fast, Proclaim a solemn assembly; Gather the elders And all the inhabitants of the land To the house of the Lord your God, And cry out to the Lord. Alas for the day! For the day of the Lord is near, And it will come as destruction from the Almighty. Joel 1:14‭-‬15 NASB

🌹Cry out to the Lord!!!

God’s Grace

Behold, all souls are Mine; the soul of the father as well as the soul of the son is Mine. The soul who sins will die. Ezekiel 18:4 NASB

The person who sins will die. The son will not bear the punishment for the father’s iniquity, nor will the father bear the punishment for the son’s iniquity; the righteousness of the righteous will be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked will be upon himself. “But if the wicked man turns from all his sins which he has committed and observes all My statutes and practices justice and righteousness, he shall surely live; he shall not die. All his transgressions which he has committed will not be remembered against him; because of his righteousness which he has practiced, he will live.
Ezekiel 18:20‭-‬22 NASB

God created all people and their soul belongs to Him. God created us and just like Adam gave us freewill to follow or not to follow Him in obedience.

Each individual is responsible for their own sin. No blame can be placed upon upbringing, social class, nationality or any one thing or person but self alone.

We were created out of love and for the purpose of fulfilling God’s will. For that reason we need to seek God so that we may live.

For I have no pleasure in the death of anyone who dies,” declares the Lord God . “Therefore, repent and live.”
Ezekiel 18:32 NASB

It is only by the grace of God that He offered His Son, Jesus, so that we may live in His righteousness. “Therefore, repent and live.”

If Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, yet the spirit is alive because of righteousness. Romans 8:10

🌹 If you need to know the grace of God, talk with a believer today.

🌹 If you are struggling in sin and disobedience, call out to God and repent of your sin and disobedience.

🌹 If you have a personal relationship with Jesus, thank the Father today for His incredible gift of grace.

Acknowledge God

And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper,29 being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents,31 without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; 32 and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them. — Romans 1:28-32

The decision (choice) to not acknowledge God leads down a road of personal, relational, and societal destruction. And we have the audacity to ask, “why is the world in such a mess?”.
