CLARITY – 3-27-19 “Come-Uppins”


A Biblical Response to Current Events – 3-27-19


What’s Happening: “Two bits of news (major to those concerned) came out yesterday that were surprises to almost all (and I’m not talking about the Mueller report of no collusion or the failure of Congress to override Trump’s veto of his National Emergency declaration – though these, too, were newsworthy in their own right). What I am talking about is Empire actor and singer, Jussie Smollett’s charges being mysteriously dropped and his record expunged and sealed (, AND famed celebrity attorney, Michael Avenatti (think Stormy Daniels), being arrested on extortion and bank fraud charges ( If found guilty on all charges, Avenatti could get 97 years. Who knows what the truth is in either case? I guess that’s what courts and trials are for.”

Knee-Jerk Response:  “Isn’t a man innocent until proven guilty in this country?”

Biblical Response:  “That’s how it’s supposed to work. Of course, there’s also the court of public opinion…ask Trump, Kavanaugh, or Judge Roy Moore about that. Whether or not they are guilty, history is changed. Not forever (the Final Judge will do that), but enough to affect their lives here on earth.”

“Christians? Apart from a mandate to keep things in their proper perspective (Prov. 11:13; 20:19), we are also encouraged to wait for the truth (Gal. 6:9). The facts have a tendency to come out…eventually. As Shakespeare said (Merchant of Venice): ‘the truth will out’…or as the Scripture renders: ‘…be sure your sin will find you out.’(Num. 32:23).”

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us to wait for final justice…we are thankful Your justice makes hell necessary, and Your mercy makes heaven possible; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
