CLARITY – 9-14-19 Heating Up…Again

CLARITY

A Biblical Response to Current Events – 9-14-19

Heating Up…Again  

What’s Happening: “With the addition of the Kalibr and other similar missiles (the equivalent of U.S. short and medium-range cruise missiles) Russia has done what was expected since Trump pulled the U.S. out of the INF….he did so in response to repeated violations of the treaty by Russia. Putting them in Venezuela (which he has threatened to do) would be (potentially\ another ‘Bay of Pigs’ situation. The Cold War may be heating up…again  (https://www.yahoo.com/news/venezuela-become-russian-missile-132300194.html). ‘Russia has legal grounds, in response to the emergence of new weapons from the USA after leaving the INF Treaty, to deploy their submarines and ships with medium and shorter-range missiles,’ said Russia’s National Association of Reserve Officers, Vladimir Bogatyrev.” 

Knee-Jerk Response:  “I guess I should be doing duck-and-cover drills, huh?”

Biblical Response:  “If doing those ineffective anti-nuclear school drills from the sixties makes you feel better…oh, you were joking, right? Seriously, that any government would even contemplate survivability of a nuclear holocaust is…well, horrifying! Still, having land-based nuclear weapons located in our hemisphere is unthinkable. A war postponed is a war magnified, but a war avoided… Thankfully, the weapons of our warfare are not fleshly (2 Cor. 4-5). But spiritual, and those who would ‘push the button’ on both sides are subject to an irresistible force: God. That may sound cheesy, but it’s true (Acts 17:26). There are forces at play here that few have calculated as part of the equation.”

“Christians? Oh, we believe in the ultimate triumph of good over evil…and He supplies us with wisdom from His Holy Spirit, meanwhile (John 16:12-13).”

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, give our leaders the wisdom from Your Spirit that sees peace as an alternative; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”

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!
