Pastor’s Notes – How Did This Happen?
“…the LORD saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment…”
– Isaiah 59:15 –
I’ve often wondered how the German people could have let the Nazis (National Socialist Party) rise to power in all of their hate and godlessness. If we consult the word of God we will always find the answer. The answer is that there was no one that stood up for God’s truth. Take a look around, we are seeing right before our eyes how it happened; how evil rises.
Isaiah 59:13-16 KJV: “In transgressing and lying against the LORD, and departing away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood. And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter. Yea, truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey: and the LORD saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment. And he saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor:”
Those that are not buying into the current evil are preyed upon by the evil doers. It takes great courage to stand up to these evil doers, but if we don’t, we’ve seen through history what can and does happen to the just.
We MUST stand (2 Corinthians 1:24 KJV “…for by faith ye stand,”) with the Lord against evil of all kinds, including Socialism, which is built on atheism. It displeases God when no one calls out or judges evil, and it displeases Him when no one and stands for God’s truth.
