God’s Judgment: Only For California or All of America?

This blogger wrote earlier about God’s Judgment against witchcraft worship in California’s mountains. However, that judgment seems to be continuing as the State is now smothered with endless fires bringing destruction to hundreds of homes. Thus, the question remains: Why is that Judgment against California continuing? According to God’s Word at least one answer is obvious: Homelessness! California’s cities have the highest rate of people living in poverty on city streets than any other city in the nation.

As Michael Snyder reports in ‘As America Gives Thanks, Homelessness Continues To Set New Records In Major Cities All Over The Nation,’ “The number of homeless people in Los Angeles has jumped to a new record, as city officials grapple with a humanitarian crisis of proportions remarkable for a modern American metropolis. Municipal leaders said that a recent count over several nights found 55,188 homeless people living in a survey region comprising most of Los Angeles County, up more than 25% from last year. If the California economy is truly doing well, then why is this happening?”

Other columnists answer the question with reports on the extremely high cost of housing in that State: “New figures from the U.S. Census Bureau show California has the country’s highest poverty rate, with nearly one in five residents facing economic hardship when factoring in living costs such as housing. The California Budget and Policy Center blamed high rents for keeping 20.4 percent of the population in poverty,” according to a recent article by KPCC Radio titled ‘California’s housing costs are driving its No. 1 poverty ranking.’ How did this happen? How could the richest and largest state in the Union have the most homeless people and the highest poverty rate? Is it because the richest among them have priced their State out of the true meaning of prosperity?

In discussing what life will be like during His soon-coming Thousand-year reign on earth, The LORD Jesus explains: “When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: . . Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

“Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did It not to me. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal (Matthew 25: 31-46).”

Thus, one answer to California’s endless fires could well be: “If Californians don’t care about the homeless poor, maybe they should experience what it means to be homeless themselves?” On the other hand, these fires could be judgment because of the State’s prideful rebellious nature—always threatening to make itself its own nation and cut away from the United States—;or its high rate of abortions; or its extremely high number of those continually living in sexual deviance—most of which has yet to be uncovered.

One problem though, before other Americans get on the ‘high and mighty’ themselves, Snyder’s article makes clear that such high rates of

homelessness is rift across America: “If the U.S. economy was actually in good shape, we would expect that the number of people that are homeless would be going down or at least stabilizing. Instead, we have a growing national crisis on our hands. . . . Homelessness is at epidemic levels all over the U.S., and this crisis is getting worse with each passing day. Some communities are trying to care for their growing homeless populations, but others are simply trying to force them to go somewhere else. They are doing this by essentially making it illegal to be homeless. . .”

So before sneering at California or other places about their sins in neglecting the poor (and/or other sinful practices), perhaps it is time for God’s people in every State of the Union to get ready for the disasters about to hit their neighborhoods and States, and to open their wholesale Christian Bibles in repentance and confess in prayer that as a nation, during The Lord Jesus’ coming million year Millennial reign, our so-called Christian nation could definitely be on the left side of That Savior we claim to esteem and love!
