We know our physical lives wind downwards to death, even before we are born & we know the universe is winding down in regards to the 2nd law of thermodynamics. The death & decay patterns are all around.
These both fit the biblical model perfectly as we live our lives as if God does not exist or that any old god will do, or money or health or happiness or drugs or sex or whatever takes our fancy. The spiritual connection with ancient cultures cannot be denied although the clever invention that man created religion is as convincing as Satan’s lie in the untainted garden.
God is so often accused of not doing this or not doing that but even when He acts that is not good enough either. But God is no slacker & sneak like us that come up with excuse after excuse, He has put it out there for us to see & hear.
We are hard to please, hog headed stiff necked stubborn mules like sheep with forked tounges that go astray & don’t seem to want to budge in our unbelief& for this we will pay a price if we do turn to Him who made all things in infinite wisdom & he who stooped down & emptied himself that we may be filled. Matt 11:17-19.
God has given us lots of examples & Satan provides lots of lies & the church is not immune from sin, it never was…the battle goes on until the end of all things.
Heb 1:1-2. In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe.
God speaks as does the beast but God will have the final word.
