We are living in an age where many people no longer care to have God in their thoughts, because mankind has become so “advanced” in science and technology and medicine, many feel they no longer have need of God.  It is a very sad thing to have that mindset, in that all of God’s love and blessings are available to all, but many choose to turn Him away. But it’s nothing new, the Apostle Paul wrote about it in his own day.

Rom 1:16  For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
Rom 1:17  For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
Rom 1:18  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
Rom 1:19  Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
Rom 1:20  For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
Rom 1:21  Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Rom 1:22  Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
Rom 1:23  And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
Rom 1:24  Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Rom 1:25  Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
Rom 1:26  For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
Rom 1:27  And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
Rom 1:28  And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
Rom 1:29  Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
Rom 1:30  Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
Rom 1:31  Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
Rom 1:32  Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

What exactly is a “reprobate mind”?  The dictionary defines it as: unapproved, that is, rejected; by implication worthless (literally or morally): – castaway, rejected, reprobate.

Isa 5:20  Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Isa 5:21  Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!
Isa 5:22  Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:
Isa 5:23  Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!
Isa 5:24  Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

We can look at the political landscape today, so many corrupt politicians are in office, elected by people who have no desire to know God or want to live in a godly manner.  Elections are won by majority vote, so it’s clear that those who don’t want God in their lives vastly outnumber those who do.  It’s scary to think that this Nation which was founded on Godly principals, who has “IN GOD WE TRUST” on it’s currency, has all but removed God from everything in our society, and that is because those who love God have laid down on the job.

Godly men and women everywhere can complain that darkness is overcoming the light, yet, they do absolutely nothing about it.  They don’t turn out to vote for godly leaders, they think it’s “somebody else’s” job to preach the Gospel to the unsaved, and they wonder why the world is “going to hell in a handbasket”.  Well, DUH!  .  I thank God there are still those who are on fire for Him, who live godly lives and pray for the lost, and shine their light brightly in this dark world.    But can you see where I’m going with this?  It’s almost as if the very people who still “KIND OF”  love and serve God are on the verge of forsaking Him, because they are not shining the light of Christ into this dark world, and there is some serious repentance that needs to be done.

It is written in 2 Chronicles 7:14, If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

If you love God, He is talking to YOU here, who are called by His name.  This invitation is not to the world at large, it is to God’s own people that need to shake themselves, and realize how dark the world is becoming and that they’ve been lulled to sleep.  Is it too late?  God has given us SO MUCH opportunity to repent individually, and as a nation, and yet, people are drifting farther from God every day, Sooner or later, God will say IT IS ENOUGH!  The thought that God might turn today’s generation over to a reprobate mind scares me more than anything else does.  We are fast headed there, and once that happens, there is no more opportunity to repent and be saved.

Remember what you read in Romans 1:28, and look around at what caused God to give people over to a reprobate mind.  We are tottering on the very edge of that cliff right now, and pieces of the ground being stood on are falling out from under us as I speak.  The upcoming election in the United States is the one which will determine if this Nation survives; will we turn from corruption and lies to the truth, or will we vote in more evil and corruption?  I believe this is our final opportunity to turn to God, and if we don’t, God will give people the desires of their heart: a nation completely without God or any mention of Him again.  Is that what you want?  I certainly don’t.  I’m preaching the Gospel of Christ Jesus everywhere I go, but I can’t do it alone. Will YOU help me?

Yes, God always has a remnant unto Himself.  But would you rather be a remnant, or a part of an entire nation that is turned to God?  We have a choice, we can choose to love God with all our heart, mind and strength, and our neighbor as ourselves, or we can let our light fizzle out and let the darkness overcome us, and follow the rest of the world and be given over to a reprobate mind.  Which do you choose?  You can’t have it both ways, for God is a jealous God.  He is either God of all of your life, or He isn’t your God at all.  For your sake and for the sake of the unsaved around you, I hope you choose to offer yourself up to God to serve Him any way you can, with all your heart.  If you have let your light for Jesus grow dim, He is offering you a recharge with strong new batteries today that will shine bright for Him.  As it is said, “A mind is a terrible thing to waste.” And a reprobate mind is a wasted mind, forever lost with no hope of salvation.  Don’t let yours be one of them.  Please, ask God to make YOU a fisher of men, one who wins souls for the Kingdom of God.  There’s not much time left.
