7 At that
day [yowm] shall a man ['adam] look [sha`ah] to his Maker [`asah], and
his eyes [`ayin] shall have respect [ra'ah] to the Holy [qadowsh] One
of Israel [Yisra'el]. KJV-Interlinear
7 In that
day man will have regard for his Maker, And his eyes will look to the Holy One
of Israel. NASB
Unfortunately it often times takes disasters of epic biblical proportions before people will wake up to the spiritual side of their lives, and get their thinking straightened out. Floating along in a fog of delusion or indifference, oblivious to their responsibilities, people usually feel no need for God, or any deity, or anything that they have decided is already good enough for them.
The spiritual life becomes nothing more than a convenience, or an inconvenience, such that people have to incorporate it into their lives. And even then, people take the attitude that it is a courtesy for pubic show and nothing more.
Even when times do get tough, and the prayers come one after another, and the answers are few and far between, if at all, then people conclude that God and prayer does not work, so why bother. Never thinking that their inconsistency in their spiritual life, if they even recognize one, might be their problem, and not God.
And so long as life and the world seem to move along with some semblance of order, then God is just not an issue much less a priority.
And it then takes a disaster of monumental proportions to wake them up as to their weakness’s and shortcomings in life.
But will even disasters be enough to make a permanent change in their life? Usually not. People just recover and then go back to their same old indifferent habits, until the next disaster comes along. All the while convinced that God and prayer do not work. Their own inconsistency and the need for change within themselves, never occurs to them.
But in the final days of history, and especially during those final three-and-a-half years of the Tribulation, people will have seen the disasters of the first three-and-a-half years of the Tribulation, but still did not change. And the first half of the Tribulation will have some pretty dramatic and biblical proportion type of events. But still no change.
Then, the changes will happen more and more to them directly as people will be literally dropping out of life on this planet, and then and only then, they will turn to the God of Israel, who is Jesus Christ, the one true God in all of existence.
Christ is now and will still be in the future, rejected and ignored.
Certainly now even most Christians give lip service to Christ, while the rest of the world rejects Him. Christians say what they believe are the right things, but they stubbornly refuse to do the right things, and so their spiritual lives are empty shells with no spiritual substance.
Anyone can easily turn to Christ and begin to abide by His mandates, including consistent confession and daily studies and so forth, but the general practice of the world is, that nothing is done until it is too late, and a major disaster is needed in order to generate sufficient humility to bring about change in ones life.
