Never-ending reports bombard our radios, television sets, computers, and personal devices every second of every day. They continuously bring to light (to the spiritually attuned) the evil that comes from every direction. We have had to agree with Lot, who endured evil that perhaps eclipsed even that of our time. We, like Lot, are sorely vexed.
One Christian friend emailed me her vexation—voiced through the synthesized speech program I have to use due to being blind. She indicated she shared the note with many others as well, including whomever looks at email at the White House.
She says the following, in part:
Terry: Below is an excerpt from your commentary today. You are right. My own anger and indignation just keeps building, just as you describe.
Still, as the battle rages, the force that resists is largely hidden, spiritually speaking. But it is there, and it is a pent-up force that I sense is about to be unleashed in ways those of us within whom it resides can’t fully fathom.
This is the Lord’s Day, which I normally devote to sweet communion with Jesus in the Lord’s Supper and meditation and prayer, but I woke up with angry words in my mind this morning and before I could find peace and solace with our Lord I had to vent—and the result is what I just emailed off to our do-nothing Attorney General…
TO: Bill Barr
Rudy Giuliani says Bill Barr does NOT want to know the truth, which has been painfully obvious to us all.
AG Barr: Where are your grand juries, sadistic prosecuting attorneys and FBI Gestapo whom we have watched for the past four years relentlessly pursuing, persecuting, falsely accusing and framing innocent American patriots like General Mike Flynn who have admirably devoted their lives to serving their country and UPHOLDING THE SACRED OATHS THEY TOOK TO DO SO – THE SAME OATH YOU TOOK!??
Where are all these frenzied forces of yours now that we have thousands of sworn affidavits, video, audio, and reams of documentation of REAL crimes – HIGH crimes – TREASON, assault, murder, rioting, insurrection, looting, threats of violence and murder against the President, members of Congress, and anybody who doesn’t subscribe to the Communist takeover you are evidently passively endorsing?
Why is nobody being arrested and charged? Why has the DOJ/FBI suddenly turned into a big fat blob of dead flesh just sitting in their chairs like rotting corpses from coast to coast and stinking America up with their corruption and decay after their four-year feeding frenzy against innocent people?
Worms. Slimy, squirming, disgusting, traitorous little RED worms.
The LOVE OF THE TRUTH is a gift from God. All who refuse this gift of God are damned to eternal torment.
“because they received not the love of the truth…God shall send them strong delusion…That they all might be damned…” 2nd Thessalonians 2:10–12
(My thanks to Mary for sharing her…vexation.)
The causes of Lot’s vexation as compared to Mary’s vary only in terms of the issues: those of ancient times versus those of our own times. The chief architect of the evil of Lot’s day, our day, and all other times in human history is the same. Satan invades with his surreptitious insidiousness the minds—the very souls—of fallen humanity. He foments rebellion, brings forth false accusation, and implants hatred within the thoughts of “earth dwellers,” as people are called in the KJV.
Yet the most egregious of the vexing evil is the same, and is front and center in these times as it was back then. Political wickedness filled ancient culture in Sodom, in that all of society obviously was mad with sensuality and lust that was permitted—even condoned, no doubt by government. However, homosexuality reigned supreme, it’s obvious from the Genesis chapter 19 account. The LGBTQ lobby today, although population-wise is small, has managed to politically/legally all but silence those who would oppose their assault on the morality of the nation.
The past four or five years have given rise to evil that threatens to unleash total debauchery like that out of which the Lord took Lot, whom He called “just” (meaning “righteous”). The God of Heaven says the following by way of warning for those who follow the pernicious ways of the evildoers of Lot’s day. The Lord, through the Psalmist, begins by giving those who are “sorely vexed” great hope.
“Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday. Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil. For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth. For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be. But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.” (Psalms 37:1–11)
To understand fully God’s pronouncement against evil and His promise to the righteous, read the entire passage of Psalm 37.
But for those who are presently entrapped in evildoing, there remains hope—Jesus Christ, the “Blessed Hope.”
“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9)
