The disasters that we are going to experience over the coming days, weeks and months are the direct result of our having turned our back on God. We were grateful that He sent His only begotten Son to suffer for us, on the cross. But, requiring us to be obedient was just too much.
It’s as if God was just too demanding and unreasonable. So, we wrapped up God and put Him on our Sunday shelf, and lived for ourselves for the rest of the week. We quickly became indistinguishable from the rest of the world.
So, the Hand of God that protected us from Satan was taken out of the way.
