BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) - Iran

The festivities are taking place at
several different locations this

'WHY DO THE HEATHEN RAGE?'
Psalm 2:1 and Acts 4:25
Are you concerned and troubled about the great increase in lawlessness?
Violent hold-ups, stealing, cheating, swindling, murder, rape, adultery, and
other kinds of violence and anarchy! At times these things strike mighty
close to our homes, loved ones, and friends! And they will get closer unless
some change is made.
In the days of Noah, God destroyed the earth and everything wherein was
the breath of life excepting the eight members of Noah's family, and the
animals he kept alive in the Ark according to God's orders. The cause of this
judgment was for causes similar to the ones that exist today: "Man corrupted
God's way on the earth, and the earth was filled with violence."
"MY SPIRIT SHALL NOT ALWAYS STRIVE WITH MAN-," The Almighty
announced in the days of Noah, and sent the flood, Gen. 6:3. It may be the
time has about arrived when His Spirit will quit striving with you, and me!
Until that time comes we would do well to remember that Christ told us to do
some striving: "STRIVE TO ENTER IN AT THE STRAIT GATE: FOR MANY, I
SAY UNTO YOU, WILL SEEK TO ENTER IN, AND SHALL NOT BE ABLE!"
We can -strive to be "faithful unto death" to the vows made to God in
joining His Church- "When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it;
for He hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed." Eccles.
5:4. We should strive to be faithful in our testimony that The Bible is the Word
of God, and be careful not to get in the "broad way" of unbelief of those who
both in and out of the Church attack the Bible. We should strive to be faithful
in our testimony that the Ten Commandments reveal the morality,
righteousness, and very character of God; and strive to be workers together
with His Holy Spirit in writing these Commandments in our hearts to the end
we may accomplish the whole duty of man, which is "To fear God, and keep
God says if the prophets, even though He did not call them to prophesy,
would stand in His counsel and cause His people to hear My Words: "THEN
THEY SHOULD HAVE TURNED THEM FROM THEIR EVIL WAY, AND FROM
THE EVIL OF THEIR DOINGS." The application here is especially for the
clergy, preachers, teachers, parents, and all who claim to be Christian. Who
is to blame when wickedness grows and abounds, becomes rampant and
worldwide, imd the stench of man's vileness mounts up to heaven!
