CLARITY – 3-3-18 A Race Nobody Wins


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


A Race Nobody Wins


What’s Happening:  “Russian President Putin, in his equivalent of our state-of-the-union message, boasted of a new arsenal of weapons that were designed to defeat all countermeasures by the west: missiles that have limitless nuclear engines and fly erratic patterns, underwater drones capable of carrying nuclear warheads, etc…..all signs that the cold war is heating up and may be spawning a new arms race. The last one bankrupted the old Soviet Union and resulted in their demise in 1991 ( ‘We already knew about the ‘Sarmat’ and we already knew about big complications with the rocket.

At the end of 2017 it wasn’t the rocket itself that was tested, but a mock-up. I suspect we were shown an edited clip: first the mock-up takes off, then another rocket is flying,’ said analyst Alexander Golts. Putin’s bellicose speech may herald a new arms race nobody can win.”


Knee-Jerk Response:  “Trump says, ‘We’re going to win so much we’re going to get tired of winning.’ Was he wrong?”


Biblical Response:  “His statement was, no doubt, not in THAT context, as that is a race nobody wins! They make something ‘invincible’…we overcome it…we make something ‘invincible’…they overcome it. It is a philosophy that is aptly named: MAD, Mutually Assured Destruction. We already (and so do they, allegedly) have enough nukes to obliterate the world.”


“Christians? Thankfully, the weapons of our warfare are not carnal (2 Cor. 10:4). The question is not who has the bigger button, but whose kingdom will survive such a holocaust? We should only be mildly concerned about the first death…the second death?…well, that’s a different story (Rev. 20:14).”


Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, give our leaders the requisite wisdom and discretion to run that race we always win; in  Jesus’ Name, amen.”   © Alan E.Sargent
