Dark leadership and the light of prophetic truth
Many people do not understand why the American government would support the inclusion of the terrorist-sponsoring Muslim Brotherhood organization in the forming of a new government in Egypt. If America has any say with Egypt whatsoever, why would America's leadership allow the power of such a group to grow in the vacuum of a revolution? Can not the president, the secretary of state, the diplomatic core and others see the dangers in promoting terrorists from their experience of the past and the history of Iran, Iraq, the Palestinian Authority, and so on? The answer can be clearly found in the Bible and it is why these dangers are so obviously apparent to those who know their scriptures.
2 Corinthians 4:2-4 says, "[We]...have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God. But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them." In Christ, there is truth. And in the truth, the mysteries of the world are revealed. But if people do not know the truth, it is hid from them by the god of this world--who is satan.
The Founding Fathers of the United States believed that for a Constitutional Republic to survive (not a democracy, mind you) only the moral and religious could be elected to office. On October 11, 1798, John Adams wrote: "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." John Jay, the first Supreme Court Chief Justice, wrote in October of 1816, "Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers." It is from these underpinnings that the American people have become so distant that our leaders reflect our ignorance.
James 1:23-25 characterizes the condition of "We the people": "For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass (mirror): For he beholds himself, and goes his way, and straightway forgets what manner of man he was. But whoso looks into the perfect law of liberty, and continues therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed." You see, Americans have been brainwashed into believing the separation of church and state argument. But we see in the issues that matter most, the lack of Truth in our leaders leads us to disaster. The answer is two-fold: We must preach the Word and only the Word, and we must only elect those who follow it.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
