The Truth Of Wickedness

Updated on April 6, 2011
The Destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah by John Martin.
The Destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah by John Martin.

And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.

They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.

Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;

But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.

Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.

Luke 17:26-30 K.J.V.

When a person has claustrophobia there is nothing a person can say or do to convince them that the room is not closing in on them. They cannot convince that panicked person that the space is not enclosing. People feel claustrophobic when they are in small enclosed spaces where the air is perhaps thinner. People who are severely claustrophobic become concerned or upset in crowds. The reason for this is they feel as though their space is being taken over. Webster's dictionary defines claustrophobia as "a morbid fear of being in an enclosed space. "

A morbid fear....I have a few morbid fears of my own. Morbid suggests that it is not healthy for my mind to think on such things. To fear them so. It would appear that those thoughts disappearing from my mind would do me good. But whereas in the case of a claustrophobic it would be a good thing; those fears vanishing, in my case it would be bad. You see I have a morbid fear about wickedness. Everyday I see and hear one more wicked deed, one more wicked action, labeled as good and praised. In response to it, I hear silence. It scares me. I wonder where are the righteous? Where are the God-fearing people? I am afraid that they are few and far between. I hear their voices in the distance but the echoes are distorted.

The truth is wickedness is abounding more and more each day. Laws are being passed, alliances are being formed, children are no longer children. Sometimes when I am walking down the street and I pass a few young people, the conversation is on a topic that I would blush to think about. They freely use profanities, speak lewdly and are unrepentant. I feel to scream and say- one minute. Just one minute I dare you to last without embracing wickedness. Even when people are confronted about sin, they shrug and say it doesn't matter. But what do I expect? Everyday they play games like Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto where their sole aim is to kill and maim, steal and wound at all costs. They listen to music where if the words aren't laced with curse words they are degrading women or speaking about revenge and the latest - vice. Reprobate minds abound and are applauded. Am I the only person who sees something wrong in this?

Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me.

When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.

Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.

Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling-block before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand.

Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul. Ezekiel 3:17-21 K.J.V.

What does this Scripture mean? It means that there are wicked people and there are righteous people. It says the wicked people do not change from their wicked way but even so, the righteous must warn them of their wickedness else their blood will be on the righteous' hands. It also says that their are righteous people who do wicked deeds and that they must be warned as well or their blood will be on your hands as well. The thing about it is, when the righteous are warned, they repent and their sin is forgiven. Wicked people do not repent. They sin and laugh about it. They mock God and act like it is nothing. I do not see any leader in the world at this time who I can say without a doubt fears God.

Well right about now most readers may shrug and say so what? What's the big deal? Well only that the end of all things as we know it is near. Even folks who don't believe in God say that there will be a great disaster here on earth. But it couldn't be because of wickedness could it? No. It is the "Circle of Life". And anyway man will find a way to beat it right? That is what all those shows like Armageddon and 2012 show. Somehow, some way with no one's help but his, man will survive! For a species that came from apes we sure think we are intelligent. Imagine able to beat not just the earth but the universe ( the asteroids, aliens etc.) at its own game and all on our own too. Wow!

The truth about wickedness is that man today is deaf and blind to it. There are thousands, no millions of Emperor's wearing new clothes strutting boldly and daring anyone to say anything and that little boy has not yelled out from the crowd yet what the truth is. People are murmuring but he has not yelled the truth yet. But it will be yelled. Hopefully by that time everyone who I could warn I would have; displaying the same or more daring than they so that my hands will not be a shade of crimson. I hope so.
