Satan Rallies His Troops

People Who Justify Bad Behavior_1

With the events of the world unfolding before us what we are seeing is the disintegration of morality. I have talked about the Book of Proverbs over and over again and the more I see the more it is proved right. There is a line that has been blurred by those who have sought to take advantage of the unrest that is going on in the world. We have politicians who have used divisive for the sole purpose of keeping the eyes of the people off of the corrupt and immoral thing that they are doing. So here we are once again with the rioting that is taking place in North Carolina with our leaders not standing up to stop this from happening. The reason is that this fits there narrative of keeping people divided so they can stay in power. And once again Proverbs 1 Stands out with people joining together to justify their bad behavior.

Proverbs 1 (NKJV)

The Beginning of Knowledge

1 The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel:

To know wisdom and instruction,
To perceive the words of understanding,
To receive the instruction of wisdom,
Justice, judgment, and equity;
To give prudence to the simple,
To the young man knowledge and discretion—
A wise man will hear and increase learning,
And a man of understanding will attain wise counsel,
To understand a proverb and an enigma,
The words of the wise and their riddles.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge,
But fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Shun Evil Counsel

My son, hear the instruction of your father,
And do not forsake the law of your mother;
For they will be a graceful ornament on your head,
And chains about your neck.

10 My son, if sinners entice you,
Do not consent.
11 If they say, “Come with us,
Let us lie in wait to shed blood;
Let us lurk secretly for the innocent without cause;
12 Let us swallow them alive like Sheol,
And whole, like those who go down to the Pit;
13 We shall find all kinds of precious possessions,
We shall fill our houses with spoil;
14 Cast in your lot among us,
Let us all have one purse”—
15 My son, do not walk in the way with them,
Keep your foot from their path;
16 For their feet run to evil,
And they make haste to shed blood.
17 Surely, in vain the net is spread
In the sight of any bird;
18 But they lie in wait for their own blood,
They lurk secretly for their own lives.
19 So are the ways of everyone who is greedy for gain;
It takes away the life of its owners.

The Call of Wisdom

20 Wisdom calls aloud outside;
She raises her voice in the open squares.
21 She cries out in the chief concourses,
At the openings of the gates in the city
She speaks her words:
22 “How long, you simple ones, will you love simplicity?
For scorners delight in their scorning,
And fools hate knowledge.
23 Turn at my rebuke;
Surely I will pour out my spirit on you;
I will make my words known to you.
24 Because I have called and you refused,
I have stretched out my hand and no one regarded,
25 Because you disdained all my counsel,
And would have none of my rebuke,
26 I also will laugh at your calamity;
I will mock when your terror comes,
27 When your terror comes like a storm,
And your destruction comes like a whirlwind,
When distress and anguish come upon you.

28 “Then they will call on me, but I will not answer;
They will seek me diligently, but they will not find me.
29 Because they hated knowledge
And did not choose the fear of the Lord,
30 They would have none of my counsel
And despised my every rebuke.
31 Therefore they shall eat the fruit of their own way,
And be filled to the full with their own fancies.
32 For the turning away of the simple will slay them,
And the complacency of fools will destroy them;
33 But whoever listens to me will dwell safely,
And will be secure, without fear of evil.”

What we must realize here is that those who would take advantage of these situations are only interested in gaining more power and they do not care about those who have been hurt by these events. Nor do they care about anyone of these people that have been involved in causing these riots. So the questions know is! How close are we to the end of America? If these evil people are able to gain the power that they are seeking then Satan will have accomplished in destroying the lines of even more countless people. In the end Christ will prevail and those who have given their lives to him will have heeded the call for wisdom that is in Proverbs. But those who completely ignore that call will spend and eternity with that master that they have chosen to serve.
