Psalm 9:8 He shall judge the world in righteousness, and He shall administer judgment for the peoples in uprightness.
The world today seems to be in such a mess, fighting and discontent and wickedness, murders and evil of every kind everywhere. It almost seems that the world is being held in ransom as some blackmailer attempts to undo any form of goodness that might be available. But, what does the Creator think of all the violence that is taking place?
We have a building project happening directly behind our apartment here in the center of Jerusalem. As I watch all the goings on, it makes me think of what the bible talks about in the times of Noah and how it shall be in the last days. There is the jackhammer of immense proportions that pounds into the rock and breaks it up to clear a place to build a new thing, in this case, a new apartment building with underground parking for the prospective tenants. Once the rock has been broken up, it all has to be removed so that the new structure can have a firm foundation on solid ground to build on. I think our Creator is in the process of judgments all over the world, removing the garbage to make way for a new world order, Gods new world order, not mans as that has too many flaws and full of too many evils. So, let us see as time marches on, how He works His justice, watch and see.
