‘Truth for Truckers’ *July 12, 2014* Psalm 12+ ‘Culture Collapse Continuing’
David’s plea in (v.1) underlines the Condition of the Country: “Help, LORD; for the Godly man ceases; for the faithful fail from among the children of men.” Where are the Godly men? Why are the faithful failing to be a force for good? The next verse tells the story: “They speak vanity every one with his neighbor: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.” (v.2). Three things characterize the failures of the once Godly men who are overtaken in their pride:
- They are speaking vanity or empty, worthless talk with their neighbors
- They flatter with their speech intending to win them over to their vain ways
- Their heart is double when they speak, saying one thing and meaning another
God’s response is sure: “The LORD shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaks proud things: Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; our lips are our own: who is lord over us? For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, says the LORD; I will set him in safety from him that puffs at him.”
Their continuing failure is described because instead of doing right, in pride they proclaim that they will prevail, their lips are their own, and they deny the fact that they answer to the LORD. So, the LORD rescues those who need Him and gives them a promise of His unfailing Words which are pure “As silver tried in a furnace of earth…Thou shall keep them O LORD and preserve them from this generation forever.” David, then, concludes with a statement underlining a fact in the Continuing Culture Collapse: “The wicked walk on every side when the vilest men are exalted.” (v.8)
This is a Clear Commentary on the days in which we are living! The vilest men are being exalted and the wicked are walking on every side. 1. The Hollywood/TV crowd is displaying wicked and perverted so-called entertainment which is covered over with nudity and blasphemy. 2. The wretched music industry is spewing out filth into the minds of the young and old alike.3. And, those in places of power are agreeing with and supporting the abominable sin of Sodomy across our land. Did not the Lord say: “As it was in the days of Lot/Noah…so shall it be in the days when the Son of man is revealed” (Luke 17:26-30)?
These three descriptions are but a few points underlining the overflowing wickedness that has consumed the USA because: 1. the Godly man has ceased to speak out and be a witness for Christ, 2. the faithful are definitely failing 3. and most Churches are dead! The devil is successfully attacking the family, the Church and the government! The foundations are being destroyed as we speak, Drivers. There is a War on Women in the home, so get your house in order and pray now for nationwide Revival!
