Key verse: Isaiah 5:20 “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”
When you see the following 6 sins prevailing in today’s society, you know that Christ’s return is near:
V8 “Woe unto them that join house to house, that they lay field to field, till there be no place, that they may be placed alone in the midst of the earth!”
Are we seeing businessmen, traders, retailers exploiting their customers by increasing the prices of their products without regard to affordability?
V11 “Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night, till wine inflame them!”
Are we seeing more people becoming alcoholics? Are there more pubs and drinking places and more people suffering from liver cancer due to drunkenness?
V18 “Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, ...”
Are we seeing people proud of their evil ways? They blatantly cheat and lied and are proud of their sins and have no shame or conscience whatsoever?
V20 “Woe unto them that call evil good and good evil; ...”
Are we seeing people justifying their sins? It is no longer a sin to cheat and lie as long as you are not caught. It is no longer a sin to cohabit and not get married. It is no longer a sin to be a lesbian or a gay.
V21 “Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, ...”
Are we seeing people caring only for themselves and have no concern of others even their own family members?
V23 “Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!”
Are we seeing the wicked getting away from their crimes and the just are falsely accused?
Food for Thought
We are living in the last days and let us be ready for Christ’s return.
