Where in the World Is the World Headed?
"Experience is the teacher of fools" as the saying goes. Only fools cannot learn from the mistakes of others, but instead have to mimic the same destructive path. In this sense our world is filled with fools, of which I must confess to be one at times. Rest assured, God will ultimately break through: "For from Zion will go forth the law, even the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. And He will judge between many peoples and render decisions for mighty, distant nations. Then they will hammer their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks; nation will not lift up sword against nation, and never again will they train for war. Each of them will sit under his vine and under his fig tree, with no one to make them afraid, for the mouth of the Lord of hosts has spoken." -Micah 4:1-4 (NASB)
Earth - not space - is the real final frontier and at present, these are the voyages of the earth-ship Suicide. History marks year after year of our rebellion against God, and it is not a rosey scene. But the future is not extrapolated from a trend. Thank God it will one day be gloriously different. The law of God will one day go viral and men will be miraculously changed - the nations will be changed. Both Church and State will recognize the righteousness and wisdom of God's law. It will be the work of Almighty God. It is a sure thing and we should take heart, "...for the mouth of the Lord of hosts has spoken."
