Hearts remain cold, hard, distant from God – Ali Winters

Hearts remain cold, hard, distant from God

Ali Winters
A moment in time, again tragedy strikes; the church rallies, prayers are prayed, tears are shed. Time passes, hearts mend and life returns to ‘normal’ but nothing really changed.  Hearts remain cold, hard, distant from God. Self-serving and proud millions continue to reject the goodness of God. Compromised churches, placated parishioners and misdirected ministers light candles, lead the nation in a moment of silence and once again ask “Why?” The answer clearly visible yet men continue to grope around in the darkness scratching through the rubble in search of truth. For you hate discipline, and you cast My words behind you. Therefore, as a tongue of fire consumes stubble and dry grass collapses into the flame, so their root will become like rot and their blossom blow away as dust. For they have rejected the law of the LORD of hosts and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel. Since you have rejected this word and have put your trust in oppression and guile, and have relied on them, this sin will become for you like a high wall, cracked and bulging, that collapses suddenly, in an instant. It will break in pieces like pottery, shattered so mercilessly that among its pieces not a fragment will be found for taking coals from a hearth or scooping water out of a cistern.

God has given man His Word, but man cares not. God speaks through circumstances but man will not listen. The voice of God grows faint as continually millions rejects the teachings of God that they may embrace false teachers who tickle their ears and speak what their deceitful and desperately wicked hearts desire to hear. The church has become a proving ground for the profane, a three ring circus complete with clowns and a ringmaster. Refusing to judge, to speak against sin, to warn against hell, the church has developed a tolerant, inclusive mindset welcoming all to come enjoy the entertainment being held weekly under the big top. For thus the LORD GOD, the Holy One of Israel has said, “In repentance and rest you will be saved, in quietness and trust is your strength.” But you were not willing.
