CLARITY

A Biblical Response to Current Events – 11-12-19

Chariots and Horses

What’s Happening: “They kind of don’t want it to leak, kind of do…and pray that it never really does. I’m talking about the ‘rumored’ second nuclear-capable sub, the Sinpo-C, of North Korea. A satellite photo revealed that the North Koreans had one, but this second one…with accelerated development after the Trump/Kim talks…is only hear-say and strategic leaks. It might be true…as a deterrent to the U.S. should talks fail…or it might be false…to keep their leverage with Trump up. And, in a sense, nobody wants a sub to spring a leak (https://www.yahoo.com/news/north-korean-threat-evolving-come-223000664.html).  Quoting an article that appeared in the National Interest on the 10th, ‘The nuclear weapons, and the rocket technology to deliver them, are extremely expensive investments by Pyongyang, and the Kim dynasty is unlikely to give them up entirely because they are seen as guarantors against a U.S. attack.’”

Knee-Jerk Response:  “Yeah, but their nuke-sub fleet is puny beside ours”

Biblical Response:  “True…but then it only takes one hit…or the threat of it…to sway opinion.  Of course, that assumes we only attack by submarine…which is not a serious consideration. Biblically, we are not to trust in horses (or chariots – Ps. 20:7). Our President boasts of the strongest military on earth…and he’s probably right. But then again, we’ve aborted over 60 million babies since Roe v. Wade (1973). It is not good to give God a reason to not favor you.”

“Christians? The familiar part of the above verse is that we should not trust in chariots or horses, but the rest of the verse is worth quoting, too… ‘but we will remember the name of the Lord our God.’ (KJV)”

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, while we want to be strong…we also want to be humble; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
