I agree with Winston Churchill who said: “ The only thing we learn from history is that we never learn.’
If you read history we always go in cycles of when societies become liberal it is always followed by wars, disease that wipes out millions, financial markets collapse, crops fail. This leads to total disaster world wide.
It is that time again.
Terrible things will happen to you in the future when you do what the Lord says is evil, and you will make him angry with the idols you have made.” Deuteronomy 31:29 The Holy Bible The New Life Version
Now is the future.
What idols do we have?
Well, we have consumerism where many in society place more value on things and little on each other. They use people and worship things.
As well, we worship homosexuality. When society embraces such unnatural things it always brings destruction upon families ( which is the back bone of any good society ) and disease to the populations like syphilis. The society becomes weak and collapses. Look it up in the past two hundred years and see the pattern.
We have corrupt judges that make decisions based upon their feelings instead of based upon Gods Law and take bribes to boot.
Jehovah will only tolerate this for so long and then look out. We encourage destructive behaviour like drug abuse.
How much drug abuse is because of big pharma so they can make the all mighty dollar?
They encourage laziness.
Look how the governments are handing out money for some to sit at home and get drunk or high.
I will pour out my anger against you; I will carry out my anger against you. I will judge you for the way you have lived and will make you pay for everything you have done that I hate. I will show no pity, and I will not hold back punishment. I will pay you back for the way you have lived and the things you have done that I hate. Then you will know that I am the Lord who punishes. Ezekiel 7:8–9 The Holy Bible The New Life Version
That is why the Lord says: “Look, I am planning trouble against such people, and you won’t be able to save yourselves. You will no longer walk proudly, because it will be a terrible time. Micah 2:3 The Holy Bible The New Life Version
Jesus said: “I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all perish as well.” Luke 13:5 The Holy Bible The Christian Standard Bible
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Machsi (Psalms 91:9 The LORD My Refuge ) that when the self inflicted disaster strikes the liberal minded in punishment for their rejection of following You directions, You shall be a refuge for Your children and protect us from this calamity. I praise You in the name of He who protected His disciples in the storm on the lake, Jesus Christ. Amen
Seleh- stop and think about it.

“Should people cheat God? Yet you have cheated me!
“But you ask, ‘What do you mean? When did we ever cheat you?’
“You have cheated me of the tithes and offerings due to me. You are under a curse. Malachi 3:8–9 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
Yes Jehovah still considers tithing a duty ( which is an act of love and appreciation for the gifts Jehovah blesses us with ).
So, when you refuse to tithe you are being arrogant and ungrateful towards Jehovah.
Why should He bless you if you do not appreciate either Him nor the gifts?
Now when we give we are to give wisely at the guidance of The Holy Spirit.
So instead of giving for a so called charity where the CEO makes millions and you fan your ego by feeling good perhaps The Holy Spirit will guide you to give to support a Christian Bible School.
If you are poor The Holy Spirit may guide you to help clean up the animal waste at a local animal adoption agency ( it is not pretty nor glorious but they do need the help ).
Give, but give wisely. Joseph- Anthony a son of Jehovah
Prayer: Please Jehovah El Deah (God of knowledge. Romans 11:33 ) bless me with the knowledge of where, when and how much to give so that it will go to the proper places You desire it to go. I humble request this in the name of He who knew His gift to us could only be accomplished on the cross, Jesus Christ. Amen

“But God’s justice stands forever against the sinner in utter severity.
The vague and tenuous hope that God is too kind to punish the ungodly has become a deadly opiate for the consciences of millions. It hushes their fears and allows them to practice all pleasant forms of iniquity while death draws every day nearer and the command to repent goes unregarded.
As responsible moral beings we dare not so trifle with our eternal future.” A. W. Tozer, The Knowledge of the Holy
