A Biblical Response to Current Events – 10-19-19
Who Controls Whom?
It’s Happening: “There seems to be a battle going on between Hillary Clinton and Democrat Presidential hopeful and Representative Tulsi Gabbard. Clinton, though she didn’t use Tulsi’s name, but seemed to be referring to her, called her a ‘Russian asset.’ Tulsi fired back saying Clinton cannot ‘control’ me. The news yesterday was the next salvo in the ongoing debate about how the Russians might try to meddle in the 2020 election (https://www.yahoo.com/news/hillary-clinton-suggests-russians-grooming-100507555.html). “She’s the favorite of the Russians, they have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far, and – that’s assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she might not, because she is also a Russian asset — yeah, she’s a Russian asset! I mean totally!” Clinton remarked.”
Knee-Jerk Response: “Another ‘Manchurian Candidate?’”
Biblical Response: “Maybe…but probably not. Just more drama. Maybe Hillary is just weary of not being in the limelight. Maybe she’s getting ready for her own run. God only knows! And speaking of God and control, He must be amused by our puny efforts. Anyone who reads Acts 17:26 knows these things (elections, etc.) are really under His ‘control’:”
“…and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation,…”(NASU)”
Are you saying it doesn’t matter for whom we vote?! No, I’m not saying that. Just that He already knows our choice.”
“And why is He controlling things? Read on. Verse 27 says it so that we might seek Him.
“Christians? Oh, we believe in the sovereignty of God (2 Kings 19:15). We depend on it…otherwise we might be despairing. Have you read the news lately?”
Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray: “Heavenly Father, help us to understand what You are doing in the earth and to be ‘anxious for nothing’ (Phil. 4:6); in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
