We can agree that violence, hunger, homelessness, sicknesses, diseases, and death stalk the entire world. Nuclear war remains a possible future threat. Due to the lack of peace between nations, wars have caused a great numbers of injuries and loss of lives.
These words spoken by the prophet John centuries ago, is revealed in our era.
“And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with the sword and with hunger, and with death, and with the beast of the earth.” (The prophet John in Revelation 6:8) K.J.V
With each generation these things are increased: Nature has become violent with greater storms and heat, along with other disasters such as earthquakes, landslides, mudslides and lightning strikes. Animal attacks have increased as well. Therefore, all of the disasters we see globally will continue to increase.
The commandments were given for a purpose. They are God's laws put in place for the human race to follow. His Statutes warn us of the consequences to come if we reject God's laws. If we keep them, we are rewarded with his blessings. If we reject him, we see his wrath unleashed. That is why the need to pray for guidance is very necessary.
