What do you say?

Unrestrained, unchallenged, undetected, millions unconcerned… darkness settles over the nations.
Voices of reason are silenced by the shrill hiss of evil. Nations in turmoil, death and violence, poverty and plague yet few cry out to God, seldom seeking solace from the Creator of heaven and earth. The entire world is under the control of satan, his evil tentacles bind tightly around them; choking out peace as panic rushes in. Exchanging faith in God for the fear of man millions live on the edge of desperation, discouragement and despair.
What do you say to a people who are stiff necked and proud? What do you say to those who long ago rejected honesty; losing all integrity they clawed their way to the top? What do you say to a people who feel no remorse, no shame, who feel no need to change? What do you say to a people who are slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents. What do you say to these cynical rejectors of truth?
Jeremiah 9 was given to be included with this post. Following is a small portion, please read Jeremiah Chapter 9 and pray for God to illuminate His Word to your heart.
We live in such troubling times; perhaps Jeremiah has answers to some of the what and why questions of life…“it is not by truth that they triumph in the land. They go from one sin to another, they do not acknowledge Me declares the LORD. They have taught their tongue to lie; they weary themselves with sinning. You live in the midst of deception; in their deceit they refuse to acknowledge Me declares the LORD. See, I will refine and test them, for what else can I do because of the sin of My people? Their tongue is a deadly arrow; it speaks deceitfully. With their mouths they all speak cordially to their neighbors, but in their hearts they set traps for them. Should I not punish them for this declares the LORD; should I not avenge Myself on such a nation as this?”
