THE PRESENT MADNESS by David Wilkerson

I am shocked by the present madness of the world. Government leaders are under God’s judicial blindness. You cannot explain the blindness of so many politicians and leaders. They grope about like the blind leading the blind. It seems like all restraint is being cast aside and a moral madness has hardened multitudes.

Seeing all this madness makes me rejoice all the more that Christ Jesus has quickened those of us who were dead in trespasses and sin. I rejoice that those who once walked according to the course of this world—who were under the spirit of the prince of the power of the air and the spirit that now works in the children of disobedience—who once fulfilled all desires of the flesh and of the mind, even dead in sins—are now raised from the dead, quickened by the Spirit—sitting in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.  Today, as you grieve over the present madness, give God praise that you have been saved out of it all. God be praised!

As I [Greg] reflected on David's article today, the Lord brought to my mind the following verse:  “He died for our sins, just as God our Father planned, in order to rescue us from this evil world in which we live” (Galatians 1:4).
