Synopsis of God Has Had Enough, Have We ?
We’re about to slice a piece of the Bread of Life, the Word of God. And today’s slice comes from: Leviticus 18:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, I am the LORD your God. 3 After the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein ye dwelt, shall ye not do: and after the doings of the land of Canaan, whither I bring you, shall ye not do: neither shall ye walk in their ordinances. 4 Ye shall do my judgments, and keep mine ordinances, to walk therein: I am the LORD your God. 5 Ye shall therefore keep my statutes, and my judgments: which if a man do, he shall live in them: I am the LORD. 6 None of you shall approach to any that is near of kin to him, to uncover their nakedness: I am the LORD. 7 The nakedness of thy father, or the nakedness of thy mother, shalt thou not uncover: she is thy mother; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness.
In order to save time I will at this point I only repeat the relationships that follow the same instruction
the daughter of thy father, or daughter of thy mother,
nakedness of thy son’s daughter, or of thy daughter’s daughter,
even their nakedness
father’s wife’s daughter,
of thy father’s sister:
the nakedness of thy mother’s sister:
thy father’s brother, t
of thy daughter in law:
thy brother’s wife:
a woman and her daughter,
neither her son’s daughter, or her daughter’s daughter,
a woman as long as she is put apart for her uncleanness.
thy neighbour’s wife,
I AM THE LORD !
If this does not sound like America then this one should. Leviticus 18: 22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. And then it goes on to promise the consequences to both the people and to the nation.Verse 24 Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you: 25 And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants. Verse 27 For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled; 28 That the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued out the nations that were before you.
I’m afraid that this passage sounds like last night’s news reports. We are on the verge of being…. if I may borrow the Lord’s words…. I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.
This sounds too much like Genesis 19:24 Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and Gomorrah brimstorm and fire, from the Lord, from heaven. God does not always do things the same. Perhaps instead of brimstone and fire He might decide to use forest fires, floods, tornadoes, and earthquakes. If you don’t think this could be so I adjure you to go and read Leviticus 26: 14 through 28. The passage is sub-titled ~Punishment for Disobedience.
I will read just a few of the verses…. Leviticus 26:14 But if ye will not hearken unto me, and will not do all these commandments; 15 And if ye shall despise my statutes, or if your soul abhor my judgments, so that ye will not do all my commandments, but that ye break my covenant: 16 I also will do this unto you; I will even appoint over you terror, consumption, and the burning ague, ( ague a shivering that is caused by fear.) 17 And I will set my face against you, and ye shall be slain before your enemies: they that hate you shall reign over you; and ye shall flee when none pursueth you. 19 And I will break the pride of your power; 23 And if ye will not be reformed by me by these things, but will walk contrary unto me; 24 Then will I also walk contrary unto you, and will punish you yet seven times for your sins. 25 And I will bring a sword upon you, that shall avenge the quarrel of my covenant: and when ye are gathered together within your cities, I will send the pestilence among you; and ye shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy. 26 And when I have broken the staff of your bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one oven, and they shall deliver you your bread again by weight: and ye shall eat, and not be satisfied.
After God has set the blessing before them which would make them a happy people, if obedient, he now sets the curse before them, the evils which would make them miserable, if they were disobedient. Two things would bring ruin.
1. A contempt of God’s commandments. Those who reject His precept, will come eventually to renounce the covenant with Him. 2. A contempt of his corrections. If they will not learn obedience through the things they suffer, God himself would be against them; and would be the root and cause of all their misery. And also, the whole creation would be at war with them. We are near that now !
Is America beginning to mirror the patterns of early Israel and Roman Empire? Our nations founders viewed the separation of the colonies from England to be a repeat of history, comparing it to the separation of the Israelites from under the hands of the Pharaoh. Benjamin Franklin drew a national seal illustrating the Israelites crossing the Red Sea and Pharaoh being drowned. The Washington monument is actually an Egyptian obelisk. Our one-dollar bill has an Egyptian style pyramid with an unfinished capstone.
We have allowed removal of prayer and Bible reading out of our school system. Now, if a child is not being taught in the home (hear that parents – in the home), or brought to church by caring neighbors, they are raised knowing nothing of God or the Holy Scripture, never to be taught ethics and morality. Then they enter college, the seedbed of evolution and progressive thinking and humanism. They have planted in their minds unbelief, skepticism and mockery toward the Word of God.
I believe there is only one choice for this end-time generation and we must not miss this time and season or we lose it all, by crossing over the line of no return as did Sodom and end up in tomorrow’s history books as another world empire that rose and fell, through our own actions.
That leaves us with one more option, and clearly the only choice for this chosen generation, reformation ! Reformation generally means to change something from worse to better, to bring a correction to something wrong, and defeat corruption or vice, exchanging it for good and truth. The simple word “reform” merely means to reshape something.
The Holy Spirit is speaking today to today’s prophets that the only solution to the spiritual ignorance, and blindness, and darkness covering America is a new awakening and a new reformation that will have to have two foundations.
The first is intense prayer. So, how do you begin? “Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.
The second foundation is in-depth discussing, teaching and preaching. We must know what we believe and stand by it. Speak, speak, speak against abortion, gay marriage, divorce, and addictions. Speak of the Holy Spirit and any other controversial issues. Remember….. you are a Christian,you are his church. Don’t just say amen. Plan what and where you will do your calling. People never plan to fail, but often fail to plan.
Brothers and sisters, and, my fellow Americans, we cannot afford to continue on our path of spiritual complacency and apathy. We have responsibilities that we must not avoid. In the spirit of reformation, we must be willing to look to God for guidance and trust that guidance in all areas of our lives.
We are completely divided in America over social issues that are considered an abomination by our creator. Half of the population accepts iniquity and half resists it. Half believe a woman has her rights over her body and half believe an unborn child of God has it’s right to live. Half believe a same sex couple have their rights over desires and half believe that God has His right to dictate the man and woman he created. This brings us full circle back to the title of today’s message…. God Has Had Enough, Have We ? If we have…. it is time for not being only a praying disciple of Christ. It’s time to speak up. Where do we start. Bro. Dick? I’m glad you asked. My wife and I had the privilege just a few weeks ago to attend a conference of an organization called Morning Star Ministries, of which Touch of Joy Ministries is a partner. We heard some wonderful messages from some of today’s men of God. One of the speakers on both days was Lt. Gen. (Ret) William Boykin, who was the head of the U.S. Delta Forces, which include the Navy Seals, the xxxxxx, etc. I’d like to add that in my eyes he is also a disciple of Christ; not retired. . In fact, a Fort Bragg psychologist almost ended Boykin’s career, wanting to exclude him from the Delta Force because he was “too religious”
