Moral Disasters Bring Wrath
The greatest threat to the people of the US is our own CIA.
If you’ve read any of the books and collections of articles published since they first came into being, you know they have from day one broken the law and spied on us, gotten deeply involved in domestic affairs, and even helped assassinate political figures here at home. The least of our worries should be their lawless spying on us, and the rather large number of thefts from and murders of innocent Americans. The biggest threat they offer to us is psychopathic disregard of morality.
I’m sure you’ve heard and read a lot of crap about what a government is supposed to do for those it governs. Most of it is absolute baloney. Under God’s Laws, the single most important mission of any human government, of any type, anywhere in the world and any place in history, has always been to uphold morality as God defines it. Fail that, and nothing else they do is worth a damn, because failing that means that government is damned.
If you claim Christ, you cannot give moral support to an immoral government.
Nobody says spying on other nations is wrong. Nobody suggests catching lawbreakers here is such a bad idea. What’s wrong is how they go about such activities. If any part of their work includes violating God’s Laws, then they have become our enemies. That’s because no matter how effectively they keep out threats, real or imagined, when they violate the moral fabric of this fallen world, they open wide the floodgates to demonic presence and power. They give permission on a level we cannot fight. I’ll give you one example you cannot dismiss: the CIA tortures people they know to be innocent. That’s documented and available on the Net.
On this one issue alone have we as a nation merited the full burden of God’s wrath. It makes not a whit of difference whether we know about it, either. Stuff done in your name is stuff you’ve done, in moral terms. We could have and should have stopped them long ago, but we are perversely proud of them. That makes us full shareholders in their moral guilt before God.
Your moral duty before the Laws of God is to repudiate their deeds. There is virtually nothing you can do to set things right with your hands and words. God hasn’t put anything in our hands to change their actions directly. All we have left is the moral declaration these people are enemies of this nation because they have willfully transgressed God’s commands to human governments. You can repent of their evil, and should, because they won’t.
But every time you think winning on human terms matters, you transgress afresh. The proper moral vision sees all things in terms of morality, and measures all things by that standard. The only victory worthy of the name are moral victories. Everything else is a failure. Sure, go ahead and win if you are playing a board game or card game. Don’t cheat, just play hard within the rules. Be ruthless, because that’s how people learn why it’s wrong, when the consequences are purely imaginary.
In the real world, be ruthless against the Devil, because he will cheat every time. The only rules binding him are those of God, to Whom Satan is still merely a creature. It doesn’t require anger or any of those silly human emotions. It requires a clarity of moral vision, seeing and embracing the moral fabric of the universe. Be ruthless with yourself, because that’s where Satan works hardest against you, is in your flesh, even in your very intellect. Your mind is fallen, too, so don’t trust knowledge and reason. Trust your spirit speaking through your convictions, that part of you which speaks the language of imperatives far above logic. Don’t do what makes sense, but what you simply must do.
Satan loves the CIA, because that agency eats its own, and embodies everything God hates about America.
For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro in all the whole earth to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is perfect toward Him. You have done foolishly in this; therefore from now on you shall have wars. (2 Chronicles 16:9)
Hear the word of the Lord: Because of the vast ocean of their sins, the people who govern this country shall utterly fail. Whatever competence they once had will flee them at the worst possible time, the whole system will dissolve in political infighting. The wars will not cease until there is no one left able and willing to fight.
