CLARITY – 4-29-20 Lack of Knowledge


A Biblical Response to Current Events – 4-29-20

Lack of Knowledge

What’s Happening: “Speculation persists in the disposition of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Some say he is brain dead. Some say North Korea is just being overwhelmed by a mass exodus of Chinese fleeing the coronavirus and Kim is ‘social distancing’ …in the extreme! (although North Korea has maintained they have NO cases of COVID-19). Is the situation dangerous? Compound the instability of the nuclear potential in chaos, with the current state of flux in the Kim/Trump denuclearization talks, a potential vying for power between Kim Jong Un and his sister Kim Yo Jong. and our lack of intelligence coming from the North…well, you may have the ingredients for a perfect storm…of the highly destructive variety ( Quoting Jenna McLaughlin, the National Security and Investigations Reporter for Yahoo News today: ‘One possible upside to the current possible crisis is that if North Korea is simply suffering from the impact of the pandemic, it could offer the intelligence community a rare opportunity, said Nixon, the former CIA leadership analyst.’”

Knee-Jerk Response:  “Again, so nobody really knows…let’s just wait and see.”

Biblical Response:  “Not that we have much choice…at least in the intelligence community (for additional input, read yesterday’s blog). The truth is, Somebody knows…but He’s not telling (which is His prerogative – Deut. 29:29). Do we need to know? Maybe. The real problem is what Hosea 4:6 promises:

“My  people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…” (NASU)

“Christians? We believe that knowledge is the key to peace…both eternal (read Matt. 7:23 and underline/italicize the word ‘knew’) and here on earth. There is an obscure passage that emphasizes the value of the otherwise few soldiers (only 200) that were listed as the sons of Issachar (1 Chron. 12:32); valued because they ‘understood the times, and knew what Israel should do.’ This is what America needs today.”

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us to pursue both kinds of peace…and realize that knowledge is the key; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”

  1. Very good write-up. I certainly love this site.


  2. Helpful information. Fortunate me I found your web site accidentally, and I’m surprised why this coincidence did not happened earlier!
    I bookmarked it.

  3. Hi, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your website in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, very good blog!
