Isaiah 5:20 “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil…”
Since rational minds naturally attempt to determine a logical explanation for surrounding events, this 4th of July weekend is an excellent time to reflect. And, despite the continuation of a progressive ideological downward spiral, the U.S. Supreme Court has just promulgated some decisions that give hope.
Racial discrimination is wrong. Discrimination in favor of one group is automatically discrimination against another group.
Free speech is not only the right to express what one believes but also the right not to express what is contrary to what one believes.
Buying votes by paying off student loans may not be authorized by the executive branch of government.
Time to celebrate some small wins?
We still have a world that has rejected its God, as Romans 1:28-32 warns, “Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, … They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters….”
We still have a world that is blinded by Satan; as 2 Corinthians 4:4 states, “…the god of this world [Satan] has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they will not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.”
We still have a world that’s upside down, as Isaiah 5:20-23 states:
Woe to those who call evil good
and good evil,
who put darkness for light
and light for darkness,
who put bitter for sweet
and sweet for bitter.
Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
and clever in their own sight.
Woe to those who are heroes at drinking wine
and champions at mixing drinks,
who acquit the guilty for a bribe,
but deny justice to the innocent.
I would love to believe that a change of administration and a few more years of solid SCOTUS decisions will turn things around, but I’m doubtful that that will happen. Matthew 24:12 states, “Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold,” and 2 Timothy 3:13 reports, “But evil men and impostors will proceed from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.”
The point is this:
Do we fight for what is right? Absolutely!
Do we vote for those who promote Biblical standards? Certainly!
Do we place all our trust in humanity? Never!
God has a plan of restoration which He claims in Revelation 21:5 “Behold, I make all things new.”
Join me as I continue the series “Finding Clarity and Insight into God’s Ultimate Plan – The Restoration.”
In the interim, enjoy the wins.
