CLARITY – 10-7-20 Be Sure

 CLARITY

A Biblical Response to Current Events – 10-7-20

Be Sure

What’s Happening: “Yesterday, the National Review wrote an article about a memo from then CIA head John Brennan that detailed a brief of President Obama of the approval of a plan by Hillary Clinton to vilify Donald Trump to distract from her use of a private email server in 2016. Mr. Brennan was deposed yesterday, along with former FBI Director, James Comey, concerning the email and the latter said he could not remember any such memo. The alleged collusion then caused the creation of  a dossier that was created by Christopher Steele (allegedly paid for by the Clinton campaign) that was used to get  permission to spy on Carter Page of the Trump campaign…which collusion has been the subject of much of most of Trump’s time in office (https://www.yahoo.com/news/dni-releases-cia-documents-hillary-204337457.html). Quoting from the article: ‘The heavily-redacted CIA memo references ‘an exchange discussing U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s approval of a plan concerning U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump and Russian hackers hampering U.S. elections as a means of distracting the public from her use of a private email server.’”

Knee-Jerk Response:  “That’s old news, isn’t it?”

Biblical Response:  “Yeah…at least that’s what the Democrat Party hopes you’ll think with the 2020 election looming. Accusations of Russian collusion is what led to a vote by the House of Representatives to impeach last February…and that’s this year. To now have the revelation that it was all a set-up (no revelation to some) is a big deal…of course, ignored by the main-stream media (they ran not one second of this story yesterday). But, as the Scripture warns, ‘be sure your sin will find you out’ (Num. 32:23). There may be no repercussions here, but that does not mean there will be no consequence (Mal. 3:16-18). I love how the Living Bible renders those verses:

‘Then those who feared and loved the Lord spoke often of him to each other. And he had a Book of Remembrance drawn up in which he recorded the names of those who feared him and loved to think about him. ‘They shall be mine,’ says the Lord Almighty, ‘in that day when I make up my jewels. And I will spare them as a man spares an obedient and dutiful son.  Then you will see the difference between God’s treatment of good men and bad, between those who serve him and those who don’t.’ (Mal. 3:16-18 LB)”

“Christians? Oh, we believe in final justice, alright….there’s no escaping that. Will it come in time for  this election? It might…we’ll see. Maybe the Lord has something else in mind…aborting over 60 million is hard to overlook (God forgive us).”

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, while we believe in final justice, we also believe (and are counting on) the shed blood of Christ; in Jesus’ Name, amen.

CLARITY – 7-3-18 Finally Revealed

A Biblical Response to Current Events – 7-3-18

 

Finally Revealed

 

What’s Happening:  “We don’t learn till page 203 of the IG Report, and the mainstream media will probably never report it, but the “happenstance” meeting of then Attorney General Janet Lynch and Bill Clinton was actually set up by the FBI and Clinton’s Secret Service detail (https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/fbi-caught-red-handed-set-up-lynch-clinton-tarmac-meeting-according-to-ig-report/?utm_source=Email&utm_medium=CTBreaking&utm_campaign=breaking&utm_content=conservative-tribune). Quoting from an article by the Western Journal: ‘The 30-minute meeting on June 27, 2016, came just days before the Department of Justice was set to conclude its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server for communication that included classified documents. ”

 

Knee-Jerk Response:  “Is this the smoking gun?”

 

Biblical Response:  “Probably not …unless it’s Trump… or anybody else. It’s strange that there’s a double standard here, but there probably is. Time alone will tell the tale. Truth can set free (John 8:32), but only if you acknowledge it for what it is…”

 

“Christians? Of course, we have to play by the rules…and maybe be satisfied that there’s justice in the end. As one version puts it, ‘Then you will see the difference between God’s treatment of good men and bad, between those who serve him and those who don’t.’ Malachi 3:18 LB) A double standard, however, can be disheartening. To survive this emotionally we just have to know that the truth will be finally revealed…here or there.”

 

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us to believe for eventual justice, but fight for it today; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”

CLARITY – 4-13-18 A Higher Loyalty

A Higher Loyalty

 

What’s Happening:  “Although former FBI Director James Comey’s book, A Higher Loyalty, is not due to be released until next week, reviews and quotes are already beginning to appear. Comey tries to explain his actions, conversations he’s had with Obama, Trump and the Hillary Campaign, etc. Who knows what the truth really is? (https://www.yahoo.com/news/whats-james-comeys-book-235458827.html). Comey writes, ‘We are experiencing a dangerous time in our country, with a political environment where basic facts are disputed, fundamental truth is questioned, lying is normalized and unethical behavior is ignored, excused or rewarded.’”

 

Knee-Jerk Response:  “Will we ever really know the truth?”

 

Biblical Response:  “We may already know the truth…but do we know we know the truth?…probably not. Or the question might be raised, ‘Whose truth?’ If you ask Trump, it’s one thing. If you ask Hillary, it’s another. If you ask Comey, it’s still another. (and honestly, they’ve believed their own hype for so long, maybe they can’t even recognize the absolute truth). ”

 

“Christians? Sure, we know there’s ‘A Higher Loyalty.’ God is the higher loyalty and He knows the absolute truth (Jn. 8:32). What is ‘absolute truth?’”

 

“Let me illustrate it this way: There is an argument that ensues between two guys. Both are watching a roofer put on shingles a quarter of a mile away. As he strikes the nail there is a delay in the report of the sound. One guy says to the other, ‘Bet you can’t tell me when he’s striking the nail.’ The other guy argues, turning around, he can even do it without looking.

 

“‘Now’… ‘and now’…timing his ‘now’ with the blows as he hears them. The other guy smiles. ‘You have it all wrong because light travels faster than sound. You think he’s hitting the nail when you hear it, but I can see when the blows really occur.’”

 

“Another guy, who’s been standing nearby pipes up, ‘You’re both wrong. The event actually occurs even sooner than the light reveals.’”

 

“‘Yeah,’ the second guy admits, ‘But you’d have to be in the hammer and in the nail to know that.’”

 

“‘Exactly!’ He exclaims.”

 

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us not get too bogged down or deceived by the difference in the perspectives of various witnesses to ‘truth.’ Your absolute truth is all we trust;  in Jesus’ Name, amen.”   © Alan E.Sargent
