A NATIONAL DISGRACE
You shall not pervert justice. You shall not show partiality, and you shall not accept a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and subverts the cause of the righteous. —Deuteronomy 16:19
What was spoken to Israel centuries ago in this passage still applies to us today. We are not:
- To pervert justice
- To show partiality
- To accept a bribe
- To be blinded by a bribe
- To subvert the cause of the righteous by a bribe
Oh, how justice is perverted in our nation. Where is the justice for the babies that are slaughtered in the womb? How is it that our top leaders can pass a bill that allows for infanticide? https://www.politico.com/story/2019/02/25/senate-defeats-anti-abortion-bill-1185531 Now they have gone beyond abortion to the allowing babies to be killed that survive an abortion. This is wicked leadership by a wicked nation that put them into leadership. Yes, we are a wicked nation and it is only by the mercy, grace and patience of God that He has not judged us as a nation… yet… But beware, His patience does not mean judgment will not come.
Now a baby that survives an abortion attempt can be murdered! What bribery would bring a person to this wicked conclusion? Really, is it to placate a group of people who want to kill kids in the womb? Yes it is. Where are the statesmen standing for what is right and just? How is it we do not have a strong voice or voices crying out for the unborn and now those born who will be slaughtered? The leadership of United States was slow to enter the battle against the atrocities of Hitler and now they continue to support the atrocities of our own nation. Just as the Lord God Almighty used other nations to stop Hitler’s wicked works against humanity, so a line will be crossed where He will use other nations to judge us. We are getting much closer to that line! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hyUnpjd3TPU
“Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people whom he has chosen as his heritage!” (Psalm 33:12) and “Blessed is the people of whom this is true; blessed is the people whose God is the Lord” (Psalm 144:15). We are not this and we are in deep spiritual darkness, a blindness that causes even our leaders to make wicked choices. Nothing and nobody can help us without a turning to the Lord God Almighty. “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people” (Proverbs 14:34). May He help us!
Dear Father without You a nation has no hope and no light and sinks deeper into wicked darkness where anything goes. Lord please helps those who know you shine and speak out against the injustices and wickedness, exposing it for what it is. May this be so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus? So be it!
