The Bible speaks volumes on the day in which we live. There are many direct references to our day, and a multitude of types and shadows. In the book of Deuteronomy we read about a nation referred to as Jeshurun. The word Jeshurun means "a little righteousness." As we witness the activities of our government, it is plain to see a little righteousness is all we have left. All pretense of godliness has long since been replaced by the outspoken disregard for God or those who choose to walk in His way of holiness. Since prayers and God have been removed from the public school system, we have become more aware of the violence instilled in the hearts of the children. As we watch the entertainment networks focus on violence, sex, drinking, homosexuality, and all the other forms of abominations to our Go, then the word of prophesy given by Moses concerning Jeshurun becomes more apparent:
"The sword without, and terror within, shall destroy both the young man and the virgin, the suckling also with the man of gray hairs." *** Deuteronomy 32:25
Our government, its officials, and workers are paranoid, fearing a terrorist attack. The government buildings are barricaded to thwart such attacks, while fear reigns in the heart of those inside. Truly the sword and terror reign supreme. As Moses recorded God's directions, we know the sword and terror will destroy the young men, the virgins, the sucking child, and also the aged. The sword and terror know no boundaries. The only cure is the love of God He puts in each of our hearts, and a close walk with Him.
