Folks don’t desire to hear this WORD, but rather, one that makes them entertaining promises of good fortunes. The more I think on the events occurring in our midst daily & how the tempo is picking up momentum, the more I am aware of these passages of scripture:
Matthew 10:34-39 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.  For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.  And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.  He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.  And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.  He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.
Revelation 6:3-4 3 and when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.  And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.
We have had our chance to prove GOD, yet, chose we to place “human kind” in His stead (place). Now, that we have made our “election” & see our faults (failures) in doing so, many of us are desperately making an attempt to “reverse the curse”; instead of Praying generally for good measures & warding off evil, we panicky approach Prayer as a quick fix remedy to mask the reproach of our neglect. Everyone knows the light switch lamp commercial, saying. Clap ON, Clap OFF! This is the kind of God the world serves and is not the ways of our Creator, Holy God, and Father; yet we treat Him that way.
