Help, Lord, for the godly man ceases to be,
For the faithful disappear from among the sons of men.
2 They speak falsehood to one another;
With flattering lips and with a double heart they speak.
3 May the Lord cut off all flattering lips,
The tongue that speaks great things;
4 Who have said, “With our tongue we will prevail;
Our lips are our own; who is lord over us?”
5 “Because of the devastation of the afflicted, because of the groaning of the needy,
Now I will arise,” says the Lord; “I will set him in the safety for which he longs.”
6 The words of the Lord are pure words;
As silver tried in a furnace on the earth, refined seven times.
7 You, O Lord, will keep them;
You will preserve him from this generation forever.
8 The wicked strut about on every side
When vileness is exalted among the sons of men.
How much this sounds like our current situation! “The wicked strut about on every side when vileness is exalted among the sons of men.” (Psalm 12:8)
This is the state of morality in America and throughout the formerly Christian west. The vilest of individuals are exalted, the baby killers, the euthenists, the pornographers, the homosexuals, the “transgender,” the vile in speech, the ungodly entertainers, and they are honored. It seems that every wickedness, sexual deviancy and moral depravity are exalted as civil rights.
Those that promote these iniquities are unrestrained and seek to use the power of law to force God fearing men and women, like you, schools, churches, businesses and civil governments to accept, affirm and celebrate these evil actions. They promote the notion of gender fluidity. They have no regard for the truth. A person’s sex, gender, is hardwired at conception and all the fantasy and delusional thinking cannot change this medical, biological and genetic fact. Those who adopt this philosophy are sinking into the quicksand of falsehood. Venal politicians and greedy businessmen honor those who commit the most deviant forms of sin. Those who are the most deviant and abandoned to a lifestyle of perversion seem to be the most exalted. Just note the celebrity status of Bruce Jenner.
In our society, the wicked are exalted and those who claim the righteousness of Christ are oppressed and degraded. The wicked want to destroy all vestiges of Christianity, Biblical law and standards from society. “He that is upright in his way is abomination to the wicked.” (Proverbs 29:27)
This is the reason that King David wrote that God’s divine intervention is necessary to address these evil actions. While it appears that the wicked are in ascendancy, God has always dealt firmly with those who promote and practice evil, giving them their just deserts. Consider how God dealt with Pharaoh and the Egyptians, and how he dealt with King Nebuchadnezzar, and King Herod.
God does not need a huge army to accomplish his purposes. He only needs a few faithful men and women who have the courage of their convictions. Gideon had an army of 32,000 against 135,000 Midianites. God said that was too many. Gideon ended up with 300 men and God gave Gideon the victory. God received the glory. Read the story of Gideon in Judges 7.
God asks this question in every generation, “Who will stand up for me against evildoers? Who will take his stand for me against those who do wickedness?”
(Psalm 94:16) What is your response? We only need a few who will raise high the cross of Christ, attack the gates of hell, and declare release to the captives.
Christian, take heart! “Through God we shall do valiantly, and it is He Who will tread down our adversaries.” (Psalm 12:8) “The wicked flee when no one is pursuing, but the righteous are as bold as a lion.” (Proverbs 28:1)
