We have seen, in the USA, so much rebellion taking place in 2020. We’ve seen violence, looting, destruction, and all claiming to be “peaceful” protesting! How absurd! Not only that, there are those in position of authority who are condoning and even encouraging such unlawful behavior! That being said, let’s look at what God has to say.
Isaiah 5:20 (KJV) 20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Proverbs 17:5b (KJV) 5 … and he that is glad at calamities shall not be unpunished.
Proverbs 17:13 (KJV) 13 Whoso rewardeth evil for good, evil shall not depart from his house.
Proverbs 24:24 (KJV) 24 He that saith unto the wicked, Thou art righteous; him shall the people curse, nations shall abhor him:
Notice that calling evil good and good evil is detrimental to those who are doing it. And that’s exactly what we’re witnessing all around the country. And, to make matters worse, there are those in high positions who are promoting it! To quote the Shadow from the 30s and 40s, “Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men!”
So what can we do? We can do what’s right because it’s right! We aren’t so numb as to blindly follow the evil ways and actions of those perpetrating them. We need to take our stand on God’s Word and stand up for what’s right. Otherwise by default, we’re agreeing with their rebellion. We need to exercise our constitutional rights and vote bad people out of office and good people in. We need to pray for those in authority – I Tim. 2:1-2 – for God to give them wisdom and strength to overcome the wickedness that surrounds them and fight for our rights.
1 Timothy 2:1-2 (KJV) 1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
Proverbs 17:5b (AMP) 5 … and he who is glad at calamity shall not be held innocent or go unpunished.
Proverbs 17:11 (KJV) 11 An evil man seeketh only rebellion: therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him.
Proverbs 17:15 (KJV) 15 He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD.
