What is polluting our ground?
I was out witnessing and came across an Amish man in his garden. This first thing that he complained about was farmers that pollute the ground with all their chemicals. Then he told me of a farmer neighbor that boasted that he did not even need the rain, because he had center-pivot irrigation to water his fields.
In regard to the Amish farmer, the ground water is being contaminated in many places because of chemicals, but there is an even bigger polluter of our ground.
In regard to the modern farmer, he is very foolish to boast and to be filled with pride that he does not need the rain, because with no rain, the level of water in the aquifer will lower, and he will have no water with which to irrigate his fields.
Our greatest need is to get listen to God's Word, and to get right with Him. The greatest polluter of our ground is abortion, and sodomy.
Abortion pollutes our ground. The Bible says in Numbers 35:33, "So ye shall not pollute the land wherein ye are: for blood it defileth the land: and the land cannot be cleansed of the blood that is shed therein, but by the blood of him that shed it." Think of all of the innocent babies that have been murdered in the womb. It has polluted our ground. Think of all of these people fighting for abortion rights, and the innocent blood upon their hands. One day they are going to face the true and the living God, and this is what the Bible says in Hebrews 10:31, "It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God."
Sodomy also pollutes our land. Leviticus 18:22-28 says, "22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. 23 Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion. 24 Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you: 25 And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants. 26 Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you: 27 (For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled;) 28 That the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued out the nations that were before you."
Sodomy is a vile sin in the sight of God, and He says that the land itself will vomit out the inhabitants of a land that commit such a vile act. What they do not realize is that the very flag that they use (rainbow colors) is a reference to a time when God judged and killed every vile person upon earth in the flood, because of their wickedness. They are flying a flag which points to their own future destruction. We need to pray that they would repent and confess their sin, before it is too late. 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 says, "9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God."
