May 21, 1971 Iconic R&B singer Marvin Gay released the now famous song “What Going On”. In this song Marvin ask why are our mothers crying, why are there so many people dying. As I fast forward some 46 years later we are asking the same question again.
As our world seems to be going down again, our world is in so much chaos and confusions. The question on everyone’s mind is, where is God? why hasn’t said or done anything. Why doesn’t God stop all of this mess? Doesn’t he care about what’s happening in the world.
As I go to the scriptures, I am reminded what Jude says about the last days.(Jude 1:7 And don’t forget Sodom and Gomorrah and their neighboring towns, which were filled with immorality and every kind of sexual perversion. Those cities were destroyed by fire and serve as a warning of the eternal fire of God’s judgment.) Sodom was destoyed without warning, I we look at the characteristics of today and then the similarities are stunning. Sodom was a city that allowed all kinds of sexual sins, they conducted abortions and killed children. They had not respect for the things of God or God himself. They wanted everyone to conform to their way of life. That is exactly what I see in the world today.
I just want to remind all of us that we must know What’s going on, so that we are prepared to go with Jesus.
