Leviticus 18: 1-25
Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you: and the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity therefor upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants. Leviticus 18: 24-25
Being born again and as the light of the world, it is prudent to check from time to time if one is living in a defiled nation. When the land is working against its inhabitants, the process of such opposition can go unnoticed for generations even though the impact can be felt abroad. The GDP of a nation may not reflect that such a land is defiled since the inhabitants don't get to choose how the land responds to the wrath of God. When a nation experiences more than five hundred mass-shootings in less than twelve months of a year, it is time to pay attention. When unecesary wars are breaking out in nations and people are willing to kill family members so as to sell their body parts for money, let the inhabitants beware. Until one checks the life expectancy of a nation, it may not be clear that the spirit of untimely death is dominating the land.
Part of the reasons for making disciples of nations is to spread the presence of the Kingdom of God across nations of the world. We are speading christianity but people are not experiencing the Kingdom of God. The continued desolation of the village cannot be separated from the defilement of the land. Most part, these are spiritual matters that capitalism or any style of government is not equiped to handle. At last an opportunity for the Church and the Government to colaborate on same project. Is this happening in your community? What are the indicators that your land is defiled?
