Getting our feet wet

I don’t really know the best way to approach this subject other than just to go into I guess.
I can remember back in the Vernon, Adrian Rogers, and Charles Stanley days one of them had a sermon that started off with a strong condemnation of a bumper sticker on the back of a camper that said “we’re spending the kids inheritance”,
That sermon was in a study of the book of Joshua, and seems like it could be prophetic to where we are today in many ways. Maybe that bumper sticker should read “we blew our retirement, it’s all gone” today.
My oldest son asked me about what would be ahead for him in his future would be with an irresponsible hippie generation running the nation, where a president could lie to the people five times under oath with no real consequence from those who took oaths to do so. At that time about the only solice I could offer was the God promises that those who did not partake and follow in the fathers sins would not be judged or punished for by God.
So were comming up on about thirty years later now and I still have a sense that what I told my son is true. And we will see the fruits of fathers will be reaped in this nation, one of those who was integral in that generation was our current president, and has been since 1972 and about 30 years old then and was a leader in the “move on” group who said lying is not a crime lets move on and forget about it, well, we wll see.
To those who are moving into the times ahead in their prime it could be a time where they will need to get their feet wet crossing over into their ineritance, where markers will need to be establish, sinful ere behaviors abandoned a time where clearing out and cleaning up and repairing and organising a functional and working civilizaton need to be done. With devine guidance to be sure.
I’m convinced as the demise of the reprobate and demented and the sundowning of that generation occurs there will be some risen up for the the challenges ahead. My encourgement to such is as God’s to Joshua. “Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.”
