Wormwood and gall

In lamenting over Zion, in Jeremiah 9:13-15, the Lord said,  “Because they have forsaken My law which I set before them, and have not obeyed My voice, nor walked according to it, but they have walked according to the dictates of their own hearts and after the Baals, which their fathers taught them, therefore thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: “Behold, I will feed them, this people, with wormwood, and give them water of gall to drink.” This grieving could also reflect today’s America. When the federal government uses policing powers for political purposes, no one in the land of Liberty is safe. And because of this nation’s spiritual condition, it is akin to being fed a diet of wormwood and gall.
It is time for all Americans to get right with God. This is the only way people are going to see truth. We are living in a time where evil usurpers of the laws of God are using accusations and sensation in the absence of any fact to undermine what is meant for right and good—the Constitution of the United States established on the premise of inalienable rights given by God the Creator. You see, rights are not granted by government, they are embedded in the precepts of God Almighty and bestowed upon His creation. Governments are supposed to be a terror to evil as described in Romans 13, but when governments are against God, we must respond as did Peter in Acts 5:29 by saying, “We must obey God rather than man.”
But how can one obey God if he knows not the word of God? We are at a crossroads in this country. It has fallen to these lows where not even the laws of man—which were based on the foundation of the laws of God–are followed. The words are bent and twisted to justify any evil means. As is written in Isaiah 59:14-15, “Justice is turned back, and righteousness stands afar off; For truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter. So truth fails, And he who departs from evil makes himself a prey.” That’s what this government under these ruthless radical leftists have succeeded in doing: Making the righteous a prey. How do you like living in fear of an unjust and all-powerful government that interprets law by the desires of its agenda?
Instead of wringing hands and asking what to do, it may be wise to just do what the Holy Spirit puts on the heart. If led by the Holy Spirit, all will act according to their gifts. A nation can be changed, a darkness can be eliminated by the Light. But first, one must hear the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit will not be heard, neither the will of God be revealed, if the only food being fed by pastors, preachers, priests or teachers is a feel-good, self-improving, self-indulgent, extra-biblical sweet-tasting meal. They have taught weakness, and by doing so, have undermined the vales, ethics and morals of society, and thus, have advocated the evil that advances upon us. But at the end of the day, it is our individual responsibility. Each of us must repent and turn to God, and stand—oh yes, we must now stand otherwise suffer a steady diet of wormwood and gall.
