Scoffers

Acts 13:40-41 40 Take care that what the prophets have said does not happen to you:
41 “‘Look, you scoffers,
wonder and perish,
for I am going to do something in your days
that you would never believe,
even if someone told you. (NIV)

This prophecy is still alive for today.  Our nation is full of scoffers.  They are scoffing God.  The scoff those of us who worship God.  We already see some things occur that are hard to believe.  If we Christians don’t intercede, if we remain quiet in the presence of scoffers, if we turn our eyes away from sin we are being as the scoffers for we are being disobedient to God.  It is time for us to spend much time in prayer rather than complaining.  We must make sure our own lives (actions, inactions, speech and thoughts) are in accordance with the Word of God.  If we are not praying for our country, our government and our leaders we have no business complaining.  God promised if we would humble ourselves and pray He would forgive our sins and heal our land.  If we love God, if we love the freedom to worship Him, we had better get busy and do what He has said.
