He Gave Them Over

Righteousness is the greatest gift any Believer has and it is by God’s grace through the blood of Yeshua (Jesus’ Hebrew name). It is not limited, corruptible, subject to theft, decay, loss nor can it be  diminished. (Rom. 8:38-39) No one deserves forgiveness or God’s love and mercy; we can not be good enough to merit anything from God’s hand. Biblical history records God’s favor upon Israel and the nations and the wickedness of men in response thereto. (Ps. 78; Acts 7) There is a point where God will release His wrath upon an evil generation and give them over to their sin and rebellion. “So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts to follow their own devices.” (Ps. 81:12) He gives the rebellious over to worship the sun, moon and stars (Acts 7:42) Consequently, their foolish hearts were darkened. “Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools.”(Romans 1:22)

Today’s idolatry is different, but not new. “God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another…Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error…Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.” (Romans 1:23-32)

In delusion and depravity, a few people seek to reinvent, rename and confuse children that their God given biological gender of male or female is an error they can change based on imagination. The State of New Jersey is teaching these lies to children in public schools. If you wonder how anything so twisted and evil could be promoted and accepted, it is because God has given these people over to a depraved mind. “Land that drinks in the rain often falling on it and that produces a crop useful to those for whom it is farmed receives the blessing of God. But land that produces thorns and thistles is worthless and is in danger of being cursed. In the end it will be burned.” (Hebrews 6:7-8) This should be a wake-up call to everyone that our nation is quickly moving to the brink of destruction. It requires a return to God in humility and repentance. “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” (Ephesians 6:12)
