You see, we’ve entered into a period of time where the Church, nations and the world have been brought into a valley of decision. A valley is a low point, and the analogy in Joel 3 speaks of a moral low point where PEOPLE’s decisions reveal the true condition of their heart.
Hebrews 5:12-14 2 For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food. 13 For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. 14 But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
Can you discern? Can you decide? Can you recognize good and evil?
Or will you find yourself in Isaiah 5:20 where you become one of the ones who call evil good and good evil?

True mercy can never exist without justice and justice can never really exist without truth.
In my last video I inserted a Pharisee detector. I used a phrase to check to see if you were one who strained at a gnat while swallowing a camel.

In my lifetime I have never seen lying, hypocrisy and the incredible lack of judgment revealed in the pulpit as I have today.
Matthew 23:23-24 says:
"Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone. Blind guides, who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel!
Today, many are hyper focused on President Trump’s personal behavior while they are blind to the “weightier matters” like Justice. Justice cannot exist without truth. True mercy cannot exist without true justice. So, if you find yourself hyper focused on President Trumps personal behavior or focused on his behavior from 20 years before he received Christ, and you neglect facts like:
