Sorry America, but your rage is misplaced

June 7, 2020 Ron Whited 

Coming out of the recent pandemic that saw a near complete shutdown of our society along with critical shortages of many essential items, I am struck by the things we now seem to have an abundance of.

Anger comes to mind as something we have in abundance. And hatred, let’s not forget the overflow of hatred in America. Oh, and I don’t want to forget one other thing we have in great abundance today; finger pointing. Can’t forget that now, can I?

Almost beyond belief, it would seem that the cataclysmic virus that had doomed us all to certain death really wasn’t the apocalyptic event prophesied by the media after all. How could it be, when hundreds of thousands are marching side by side not wearing a mask? Imagine that would you?

Things were so bad that we were strictly forbidden to go to church for fear of spreading this death defying virus, yet somehow or another congregating in crowds of tens of thousands doesn’t pose any health risks at all.

I mean, who knew?

Honestly, I’m thinking the wrong crowds are filling the streets of America. I’m thinking we awful, disease spreading, unenlightened Christians ought to be the ones pouring out into the streets of America to protest the theft of our Constitutionally guaranteed freedom of worship. [1]

Speaking of pouring out into the streets, I have lived on this earth for just over 65 years, and in that time I have seen many instances where people took to the streets out of frustration and anger over issues beyond their control.

I was just a boy of eight years of age when Martin Luther King gave his famous “I Have a Dream” speech in 1963.

I was thirteen when the infamous “Chicago Seven” were arrested for their anti war activities during the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago.

Just two years later when I was a 15 year old, the Ohio National Guard opened fire on a crowd of Vietnam War protestors, killing four and wounding nine. Living just a couple of hours from Kent State University, it seemed like it was in my backyard.

Since those tumultuous times of decades past, there have been several other noteworthy examples of citizens taking to the streets to protest for one reason or another. Abortion, LBGTQ, Environment, Guns, Women’s rights, Anti-war, and the Million man and Million woman marches have all made their mark on the fabric of American society.

Today, as our nation once again seethes with anger in the wake of the brutal, heinous murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis, millions are again taking to the streets in a show of indignation and defiance of the status quo.

Of course, the violence that has erupted during the peaceful marches is the result of a well planned and well funded attempt to destroy the fabric of American society from within. There is only one word that most aptly describes what is being played out before our eyes: EVIL.

We can dress it up any way we like to, but it’s still EVIL. We can call it racism or bigotry or any number of other names, but it’s still EVIL. And this is what those marching and protesting in the streets do not understand. This is NOT an issue of race. It is an issue of EVIL. Even those violent criminals that have been unleashed upon our society are completely misguided. The issue here is not one group hating another. It goes much, much deeper than that.

What we’re dealing with here is of the spiritual nature. Don’t believe that? Read what the Apostle Paul had to say about the subject of EVIL.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. (emphasis mine)

Did you understand what Paul meant? Our battle, your battle, is not with mankind. It is NOT with your neighbor who is of a different skin color than yours. It is NOT with those whose belief system differs from your own. No, the battle is against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

In other words, the battle is against the spiritual forces of darkness that exist in high places. Who is leading the charge of these forces of darkness at play in our society? Why, it’s none other than Satan himself. That’s right, and every person storming the streets today is being played by the devil. Not a popular sentiment, is it?

Why do you suppose racism still exists at the level it does today? Why haven’t supposedly educated, enlightened individuals been able to come up with a permanent cure for racism? The answer is so simple that its almost too simple. The reason racism still exists at its current level is because the cure for racism is the love of God, and the world has largely rejected the Source of this love.

It’s like the old adage about taking a knife into a gunfight. You can be the very best at using a knife, but against a gun you have virtually zero chance of success against your adversary. Fighting systemic racism by protests, even violent protests does nothing to address the root of the problem! To be sure, these marches have gotten the attention of the entire world. They have no doubt spawned new discussions (or soon will) on how best to deal with the problem.

But not one thing is being done to address the root of the problem: we have forsaken God.

And that, dear readers, is not something that can be corrected by marching down Main Street USA. It can only be corrected at an altar.

Have a blessed day,

Ron

  1. Reblogged this on Zero Lift-Off and commented:
    What a tremendous piece and clearly illustrated synopsis of the actual reality of what has been and is going on over just the last year! The old adage coming apart at the seams is clearly in effect!

    Just this morning I was thinking about and praying over many of these ideas mentioned here, and at that time I responded to another fine blog to add my perspective as I’m attempting to here! Here is some of what I said that correlates well with this fine article which does point out how crazed and out of control things have become, not just here in the Good Old USA, but everywhere!

    “In this article I stated this relating to his findings! Marc Morano says it best and truthfully, “In his best-selling book, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change https://www.amazon.com/Politically-Incorrect-Climate-Change-Guides/dp/1621576760, climate skeptic Marc Morano shares the facts you haven’t been told and argues that the bad news about the Earth’s climate is wrong!”
    “Antarctica is gaining ice, not losing it. CO2 levels are actually 10 times lower today than they were thousands of years ago, and severe weather is declining not getting worse.”
    And Morano says, “your tax dollars going to fight climate change are being wasted.” The book also is also able to point out that even using all the best data and theories that the Climate Accord is going by it with all of its suggestions would postpone any Climate Change by about 4 years and would cost the world 100 Trillion dollars!

    And of course as I’m sure you’re aware the Madman Bill Gates who I guess is like a god to some people having no credentials in many of the fields he steps into and manipulates; wants to now cool the planet down by shading the atmosphere!

    Last night Syria sustained massive airstrikes to knock out Iranian missile batteries along the Syrian coast! Along with this development Benjamin Netanyahu has failed to form an Israeli government making two of the still great democracies of Israel and America teetering on the edge; so add these instabilities with all the Junk Science and Paganism mind-set of the secular societies around the globe and this “Falling Away is happening Big Time!” The leftist are all gloating like sharks ready for a feeding frenzy!

    Apostle Paul writes that it will involve the revealing of “the man of sin…the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4) 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 “[3] Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; [4] Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped; so that he as God sits in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.”
    “The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie” (2 Thessalonians 2:9-11

    What have we gone through for over a year with the artificial pandemic and now here where I live many people still are locked into this evil game walking around or even driving in their cars alone with their faces covered from their lower eyelids to their necks like zombies as I see them; and feeding on LIES! I don’t wear the God forsaken mask, and walk right into the super market carrying a handkerchief in case some hot head says I’m going to contaminate someone like that I’ll cover my mouth; which hasn’t happened yet!”

    Man of Perdition, Antichrist and the Devil himself are all assuredly enjoying this and waiting in the wings for their grand entrance to rule the world! I can’t see how things will ever go back to any semblance of peace and integrity now; as we are on the edge of the precipice, I have no doubt at all about it!

    Thank you and God bless.

      1. Amen Brother! This life could be so much more tolerable for all if that were the Genuine Golden Rule that everyone would uphold and live by! As we know all too well this world is plagued with just the opposite approach of Deception since the fall; the game of the evil one!

        “Vanity of vanities, says the Preacher, Vanity of vanities! All is vanity” (Ecclesiastes 1:2,

        Romans 8:20 says that “all creation was subjected to vanity because of God’s curse.” “When Adam sinned, God cursed all that He had made.” (Genesis 3:17–19).

        In other words, perfection was lost. All of creation is now falling short of its original purpose; rather than working in harmony with God and creation, inhabitants of the earth have turned on each other and against God. We still reel from the effects of that curse. Everything meant to be right side up is upside down. The chaos and insanity of the world as we know it are due to the fact that God has subjected creation to vanity.
        “That the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God.” Romans 8:21, ESV
