There Is Evil In Our Land
Dan Jenkins

If America would understand the importance of studying the Old
Testament, our world would drastically change and head in a new
direction. Why do we have that old covenant when we live under the
new one? Listen to what God says. “For whatever things were written
before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and
comfort of the Scriptures might have hope” (Rom. 15:4).  We are a
sick nation because we have not paid attention to those things written

  There is evil in our land as there was evil in the land of Noah. When
   godly people became intertwined with the ungodly, our holy God
   responded. “Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great
   in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only
   evil continually. And the Lord was sorry He had made man on the
   earth, and He was grieved in His heart” (Gen. 6:5-6). At one time, we
   at least said that we wanted to be “one nation under God,” but now we
   have become a nation which longs to be “one nation out from under
   God.” How much longer will it be before God is sorry that He ever made

    What things were written before? Read those verses from Genesis
    again and understand they were for our learning!
    How do these words from Micah describe our land? “Woe to those
    who devise iniquity, and work out evil on their beds! At morning light
    they practice it” (Micah 2:1). They cunningly devise their plans and
    then carry them out as soon as the morning light comes. How good are
    they at it? “They do evil … successfully with both hands” (Micah 7:3).
   We are truly a land filled with ambidextrous people!

  Once a nation starts down the road of evil it becomes more and
  more corrupt. Paul described it this way, “But evil men and seducers
  shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived” (2 Tim.
  3:13). Jeremiah’s words are so graphic: “And like their bow they have
  bent their tongues for lies. For they proceed from evil to evil, and they
  do not know Me” (Jer. 9:3).

  We hear that the economy is booming, and while that may be true,
  there is something far more important. Our land has become a place
  where “evil is booming.” Will we never learn? Is there no hope? The
  hope for us is found in the opening words of this article. Those things
  written before were written for our learning!

  How do we respond to all of this evil? What values must we place in
  our homes? It’s very simple. We must not follow the multitude to do
  evil (Ex. 23:2). We must not be overcome with evil but overcome evil
  with good (Rom. 12:21).
