Sitting Upon Blood And Sin

 The White House Is Once Again Sitting Upon Blood and Sin.

And God will topple it!

In Matthew chapter 13 Jesus told parables to those who gathered to hear him. Starting verse 24, He said,

"The Kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds  among the wheat, and went away.
When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared.
The owner's servants came to him and said,
'Sir, didn't you sow good seed in your field? Where did the weeds come from?'
 'An enemy did this' ", he replied (verses 24-28).

 And although the master said to leave the weeds in place and pull them out for destruction at the time of harvest, He who has the power to destroy the weed at the time of harvest also has the power to destroy them now. Either way, the consequences of evil will come sooner or later, but sometimes sooner than anyone expects.

The most important question to ask is, are your works evil or for the good cause? The enemy in this parable, having gone by night--that is stealthily, to do his evil work also went back to his own home pretending nothing had happened. But, "By their fruit you will know them" (Matthew 7:15). Very soon it was obvious what he had engaged his God-given time doing behind the scenes--Evil!

You may be able to shield your evil works from view, and will be able to design elaborate schemes to deceive and to cover them up, but it won't be for long. Your house may be as white as snow as visible to everyone else, but what's going on inside is as dark as sin. Your house is a house of sin and blood.
God will topple it!

The World Resists Trump

In an unprecedented move on January 21, 2017, the Women's March which was organized in the United States to resist President Trump turned into a global phenomenon. People marched and protested Trump in all continents of the world. Is the world united against what most people see as the excesses of one man, or is one man united against the world?

Here are some shots from the world-wide protest march. These images taken from a number of News media, by no means fully representative of what the participation was like, tell the story in a nut shell that the world is united in this resistance.


Is Everybody Crazy?

Is Everybody Crazy or Is Somebody Crazy?

On the sick bed: The United States is sick. Can it survive? It is under attack; can it stand?
But wait! Before the outsider has shot the first arrow, the insider is shooting arrows at his own, undermining the very foundation upon which he stands.

Which is it? Is everybody crazy or is somebody crazy?
A mad man--an insane person once scribbled on a wall on his father's property: Everybody is Crazy! It turned out that after the insane man beat up his mother and siblings and sent them packing from the house which he now owned, the assistance of law enforcement was needed to get him to a mental institution. Insisting on the way that everybody was crazy, he cursed, raged, and shouted obscenities as he was being driven to the treatment center. 


The insane man was hearing voices and part of what he heard was that "everybody is crazy." Unable to separate his thought from this delusion, he carried on for quite a while with this thought before others began to notice that he was crazy. He needed help and it took a severe beating of everyone in his house to realize that this wasn't just a "smart" person as they'd thought, they were dealing with a case of mental sickness.


You will need help to get your sick person whole. Just like the United States is on the sick bed and needs to be made whole. But can she be made whole by the ravings and delusions of a mad man? Not by any stretch of the imagination! Yet somebody has to be able to say to the sick person, "you are sick and need help." To stop any action to call for help for fear of reprisal is to agree to live with the situation without complaining. You are facing a dire situation, you voice what you see or remain silent and bear the brunt of the actions of a mad man.
Either you are all crazy or somebody in your midst is crazy. You have a choice! And before you forget, nobody is too big to get treatment for any serious situation.
