There is nothing new under the sun. Even in Isaiah’s day, there were those who called evil good and good evil. It is going on today at an accelerated pace. This last one over the bathrooms has, it seems, pushed to a point of absurdity that we have finally decided was unacceptable.

I pray for the government of North Carolina; that the Lord would give them success as they take a stand, as now the DOJ has filed suit against them. North Carolina could to loose 1 to 2 billion in federal funding – over a bathroom issue. They seem as hell bent on making North Carolina pay as they do in seeing that Hillary Clinton doesn’t. Imagine that.

Isaiah said God would “cleanse the bloodstains from Jerusalem by a spirit of judgment and a spirit of fire”. I’m not sure how that will actually happen in our government, but it is without a doubt in need of happening. From the injustice of granting a woman the right to choose, when that choice results in the sacrifice of a human life, to the injustice of allowing Hillary Clinton to remain unscathed in spite of her blatant disregard for law, to this latest bathroom issue; our government is in need of a cleansing. I pray their day is coming.

Push Back America

I like writing that is right – that describes accurately how things are. Just this morning, I read something that Isaiah wrote that describes how things were in his day. Here are few of the selected phrases that speak to what was happening in his day. The young were rising up against the old. The base were rising up against the honorable. The guides were leading people astray. They were parading their sin like Sodom.

By his accurate description I can see a parallel to our present day. I am able to see what God thought about it – what he planned to do about it. I can see, so much like today, how the base is rising up against the honorable. His account inspires me. In the flood that the guides of today are pushing, I see that God has his own guides; and through this one I am inspired, not to just let my light shine, but to push back.

I like an Abraham Lincoln quote I read the other day. “Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm.” The honorable people of our society are in the right place. We need to do more to stand against those who are pushing the base things of this world. They parade it like Sodom. And again, from someone elses descriptive writing, we know that didn’t end very well.
