There are many examples given to us in scripture of how our choices move the hand of God across the land. In the garden of eden we see adam and eve were given the choice of free will to obey God or to defy Him and choose their own way. By their choice God had to send them out of the garden to protect the tree of life(Genesis 3:22-24).
In Deuteronomy chapter 28 we read of Gods protection over those who keep His commandments and walk in His ways,even many generations later Jesus said “If ye love me,keep my commandments”(John 14:15),(Deuteronomy 28:58-63).58 If thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, that thou mayest fear this glorious and fearful name, The Lord Thy God59 Then the Lord will make thy plagues wonderful, and the plagues of thy seed, even great plagues, and of long continuance, and sore sicknesses, and of long continuance.60 Moreover he will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt, which thou wast afraid of; and they shall cleave unto thee.61 Also every sickness, and every plague, which is not written in the book of this law, them will the Lord bring upon thee, until thou be destroyed.62 And ye shall be left few in number, whereas ye were as the stars of heaven for multitude; because thou wouldest not obey the voice of the Lord thy God.63 And it shall come to pass, that as the Lord rejoiced over you to do you good, and to multiply you; so the Lord will rejoice over you to destroy you, and to bring you to nought; and ye shall be plucked from off the land whither thou goest to possess it.
This is only a couple of examples of how we live truly does affect Gods judgment in the earth. Now fast forward to our modern day choices,has man learned how important it is to serve God over his own ways,or is there still rebellion present in the earth today? Is man obeying Gods just ways?
Many generations ago God addressed the sin of homosexuality and sodomy by the destruction of sodom and go-mor’-rah a sin still present in our world today,and still an abomination in His eyes. Then there is the issue of abortion which has taken thousands of innocent lives God created for a purpose! Man playing God will not for any reason be alright in His eyes(Romans 1:26-32).
Gods way is one of peace and when we see such unsettling things,we must remember God is on the throne and He is not the author of confusion for it is the rebellion of man that causes chaos. (1 Corinthians 14:33).
We have weather patterns more devastating then ever today and the plague of diseases taking many lives. With previous lessons so clear in scripture of Gods control in the earth how can we not know that our choices affect Gods judgment in the earth?
