What Will We Do, If the Constitution is Destroyed?

Streams of tears flow from my eyes, for your law is not obeyed. Psalms 119:136, NIV

Streams of tears flow from my eyes because my people are destroyed. Lamentations 3:48

My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. Hosea 4:6(a), NIV

 

I truly believe that most Americans feel that something is wrong. For some it is just because of the challenges we are going through that have taken such a heavy toll. I'm not talking about that.

 

Instead, I am talking about the destruction of our Constitution. Our rights have been steadily chipped away, and with this shrinking of our rights, our freedom is rapidly being destroyed. While most people certainly are aware of these occurrences, they haven't a clue as to why it is happening or what they can do about it. They don't understand that what is happening, is a result of an entire generation being removed from the principles that their nation was founded on.

 

Those who have studied history, however, know. And that knowledge makes them sad and angry and frustrated - all at the same time. They ask themselves how an entire nation would willingly sell itself into slavery? The answer, of course, is that their ignorance of who they are and where they came from has destroyed them. And we are bearing witness to a nation that is on life support because its people no longer know enough about duty and honor to even care that they are losing their rights and their freedom.

 

Maybe now we know in a small measure what God is feeling when He views the sad state that His creation is in because we have ignored His laws. We are a people that in large part are being destroyed by our lack of knowledge. It should be noted that this type of destruction did not happen over night. Like America and her abandonment of the Constitution, the people of God have slowly drifted away from the very truth that could save them... and we need to wake up before it is too late to do anything about it!

 

Therefore we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard, lest we drift away from it. For since the message declared by angels proved to be reliable, and every transgression or disobedience received a just retribution, how shall we escape if we neglect such a great salvation? It was declared at first by the Lord, and it was attested to us by those who heard,  Hebrews 2:1-3, ESV

 

The readings for the next two weeks are from Hebrews. A chapter a day of reading and thinking about the truths they contain will help us to understand Who is in charge and what we need to be doing to serve Him best. These readings will also go a long way in curing this terrible disease of ignorance of God's Word that has been lending to the destruction of His people.
