CLARITY – 5-31-18 Still Offered

CLARITY

A Biblical Response to Current Events – 5-31-18

 

Still Offered

 

What’s Happening:  “Kim Yong Chol, the chairman of the ruling Worker’s Party in North Korea, met with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in New York yesterday, and as such, became the highest ranking DPRK official ever to go to the U.S. They are seeing if the proposed summit between Kim Jong-un and Trump, originally planned for June 12 in Singapore, could still be held (https://www.yahoo.com/news/mike-pompeo-ramps-pressure-north-094842120.html). ‘Between now and if we’re going to have a summit, they’re going to have to make clear what they’re willing to do,’ a State Department official said.”

 

Knee-Jerk Response:  “Is the only alternative nuclear war?”

 

Biblical Response:  “No, there is also conventional war…and then there is also the same “strategic patience” of the past that is only a delaying tactic for them to increase their nuclear arsenal to the point where they are a real threat – not just to us, but the region and then world. Hopefully, the DPRK will join the rest of the world and realize the nuclear-war option is unthinkable. Maybe the summit will still go on…at least we should so pray.”

 

“Christians? Thankfully, the peace with God (which is even more desirable than peace here on earth) is still being offered. ..and until we die remains “on the table” (Acts 2:39).”

Correction:   Yesterday’s CLARITY (Final Justice) reported an assassination of a Russian journalist in Kiev, Ukraine. It now turns out all this was staged as a sting operation by the local police to catch the intended assassin before he could carry out his contracted killing. No one knew of the operation outside of a few. Even Babchenko’s wife did not know at the time. I repeat, Arkady Babchenko is ALIVE!

CLARITY – 4-23-18 Pompeo and Circumstance

Pompeo and Circumstance

 

What’s Happening:  “Having already established a relationship of diplomacy with Kim Jong-Un and been confirmed earlier by a bipartisan majority to be CIA Director, it may be hard for the Senate NOT to vote to confirm Mike Pompeo,  but they will likely try. Already, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee (who votes today) has said they will not vote to recommend him, The full Senate vote occurs later this week (http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/04/23/pompeo-trumps-pick-for-secretary-state-faces-tough-battle-for-senate-confirmation.html). ‘We certainly hope some members will change their minds,’ White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders-Huckabee said.”

 

Knee-Jerk Response:  “Going to talk with Kim was kind of like assuming too much, huh?”

 

Biblical Response:  “Maybe…of course, you might think such a move might satisfy his critics on the diplomacy front (it’s kind of hard to say he’s  not diplomatic when he’s just pulled off the diplomacy move of the decade!). Probably, this is just another example of Trump-hate. You know, that political bent of being against everything Trump.”

 

“Christians? It’s hard to be against sin and not the sinner, but that is what we are told to do (“The good hate the wickedness of the wicked, and the wicked the goodness of the good.” [Prov. 29:27 LB]) What am I saying? That you cannot oppose the man  just because you oppose his personal preferences.”
