A Biblical Response to Current Events – 4-28-20
Talk About ‘Grave’ Condition!
What’s Happening: “Is he dead,,,is he recovering from surgery…will his sister now become North Korea’s first female dictator? Questions and rumors swirl about Kim Jong Un, as he has not been seen publicly since April 11, not even attending his grandfather ‘s birthday celebration (as his grandfather, Kim Il Sung, is the founder of communist North Korea…a big deal). Everybody has an opinion: China is sending a medical investigative team, South Korea says he’s ‘alive and well,’ North Korea maintains he is fine…even Trump says he knows…but is apparently not telling (https://news.yahoo.com/south-korean-official-says-kim-164825490.html). Quoting the Business Insider article that appeared a couple of days ago: ‘Our government position is firm,’ Chung-in Moon, a foreign-policy adviser to South Korean President Moon Jae-in, told Fox News. ‘Kim Jong Un is alive and well. He has been staying in the Wonsan area since April 13. No suspicious movements have so far been detected.’”’
Knee-Jerk Response: “What’s the big deal? Just because he has a finger on the nuclear button…hmmm…I guess that is a big deal!”
Biblical Response: “You think?! Either our intelligence mechanism is incompetent or we know, but are playing our cards close to the vest…probably, the latter. And it does matter! Perhaps no one could be a worse nuclear actor…even his sister…but this headline-seeking ego maniac doesn’t live a very healthy life, anyway. He’s obese, chain smokes, and at 36…well, you know why China, his main backer, sent a medical investigative team. I can imagine a certain Jewish council doing the same thing at the grave of Joseph of Arimathea almost 2,000 years ago. Of course, they found it empty (Matt. 27:62-28:6)…boy, did they have some explaining to do!”
“Christians? We believe not only was He risen from the grave, but that nothing else matters, by comparison (1 Cor.15:14-22)…including the disposition of a certain North Korean dictator!”
Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray: “Heavenly Father, help us not to react in fear, but to act in faith; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
