As I began my morning
feeling aches and pains of yesterday's labor, I thought to myself how much of a blessing it will be
to be a spiritual body that couldn't know the reality of the flesh. I thought of when the silver cords breaks
and how it might come to me. All of my nightmarish considerations from logic were dismissed by
the promise Jesus spoke to in resurrection.
I made my coffee and waiting for it to brew and I checked my emails.
This is what I read:
As I read it the news seemed to be a nightmarish reality that follows with logic of consequence.
Those that are charged with delivering health care to the elderly took upon themselves mischief before striking.
This mischief is not a small thing. The premeditation of it puts wages and comp of work above the dignity of human life.
If you read the story through it gets worse. Our elected officials charged with the safety of the state residents are indirectly participating
in the mischief.
Is this news troubling? Of course it is troubling!
What then is CT to do about such a reality? Is there any hope that consequences will occur for such mischief?
I don't think we should have much hope in seeing justice for this criminal negligence.
The truth of this reality is that CT is a state which has a representation based on a majority of those that support the SEIU
The next stop is the federal government and nothing I have seen in the actions of that body suggests differently.
Many times previously I have posted on this page as well in books I have penned just how times will get worse for the installation
of folks as representation that were mutually invested in the majority group think of today. This is plainly evidence supporting that
foretelling. The wickedness of mischief WILL get worse than this, but here is the thing to be mindful for in the coming days.
Man's justice depends on the hearts of men, and the heart is fickle. The heart of men in powerful places has hardened and it rejects
all that oppose the considerations of a fickle heart. Therefore the purpose of man's justice has become nothing more than convenience.
The convenience serves the whims of the same fickle hearts while the supposed morality of justice gets dismissed.
Would this be a case for anger within the people of CT? For some it most certainly would be enough of a reason to respond with anger.
For others it would be victory realized in lawlessness. Again I ask you, what can be done in the name of Justice?
From a personal perspective, my greatest weakness has always been reacting with anger. Nine times out of ten nothing of repair ever came for such a response. In fact conditions became worse for the anger added. What I have learned is that keeping my wits and reason goes a much longer way
in rectifying wrong circumstances. In my studies of God's word the constant I refer to is the fact that God's Justice never changes.
I also have settled upon the teachings of Christ that I should worry for nothing, nor fear those who can and will destroy my body once.
For me, it is better to see a thing for what it is and respond to it rather than perceive a thing in the furies of rage and react.
It is pretentious and sinful for us to think that our country comes before God's plan for humanity. I am not suggesting that we vacate the
responsibilities of being citizens in the greatest and free-est country in the world. I believe we can use deliberate and calm reason to restore our privilege as Americans. But if we engage the wickedness of mischief we find ourselves in we should then know we depart from God's commandment
and are therefore no better than those bringing us the troubles of today.
Our founders arrived at the laws that formed us with an intimate relationship with God. History of this truth is available, but those in power
are doing all they can to rewrite that history. Many will steep themselves in anger and hatred to undo the same wickedness.
They will fulfill the Gospels of Matthew 7 : 21-23
If there were ever a more important truth for Christians to hold to it would be to find it in themselves to be peace makers and know that even as man's justice is unjust God's is never unjust. Because His words are never unjust make sure to not engage those that deal in wicked mischief. Rebuke the sin and speak the wisdom of truth to the sinner and leave it to God. We are not to judge, we are not to abide contempt in our heart for the evil that must come before the Son of Man returns. We are to witness His coming as the bridegroom to His church. We are here to deny the false prophets.
That which can move us to fear which result in angered response is no denial of false prophecy.
Do not ask of how this evil shall make itself known. Jesus spoke to all these things in scripture and told us of what must pass.
Don't become part of the coming condemnation for false surety of salvation. If you know your scripture and trust in the Lord with all your heart you'll depart from your own wisdom and trust His.
It is those that live in the spirit, rather than those of the flesh that discern what is happening today.
Abide the laws of the land because God gave those laws authority. Do not be enraged for the reality we allowed to happen, but rather
anticipate the reality coming and find your strength in the Joy of the Lord, not the mischief of wickedness the flesh desires.
