Keep Perspective

I admit to being disconcerted by the lunacy, hatred, hypocrisy and vileness expressed in the media by the Democrat socialist and their secular humanist partners. Three years of propaganda, lies, never ending investigations, impeachment and it still goes on and on. Joe Biden is anointed as the democratic candidate without an election; he has dementia; admitted using his office and threat of withholding US funds for personal benefit of his son, and has a horrible political record. It is vexing to even think about solutions to all this madness.

I don’t watch the news, but I do read the Bible which is more relevant and wholly true. None of this matters, even the Covid-19 pandemic will seem insignificant in the near future. “When a farmer plows for planting, does he plow continually? Does he keep on breaking up and working the soil? When he has leveled the surface, does he not sow caraway and scatter cumin? Does he not plant wheat in its place, barley in its plot, and spelt in its field? His God instructs him and teaches him the right way….All this also comes from the Lord Almighty, whose plan is wonderful, whose wisdom is magnificent.” (Isaiah 28:24-26, 29) Every injustice, evil deed, twisted scheme of lies and distortions can be resolved by God just as easily and quickly as He determines. With a perspective of God reigning Supreme and Sovereign over all nature and men a peace is possible. We know that God is patient even of the wicked for His good purposes, that He might show His lovingkindness to His people. (Rom. 9:22-29) God is not subject to time as we are and He is not slow or disengaged. “But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:8-9) Everything that is happening has happened before, not to us but to our ancestors, not in our country but in others. There is no new evil or injustice the wicked can contrive or carryout today which their fathers didn’t attempt before them. Our perspective, even of all recorded history is too limited to rightly perceive God’s Majesty and Rule.

The unbelieving wicked are blind to all truth, but we who have believed the testimony of Yeshua Messiah have no excuse and can take heart knowing that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. (Rom. 8:28) All things includes matters we consider uncomfortable, distressing even bad, as well as times of refreshing and peace. Even when the antichrist arises Yeshua will return and defeat him, ultimately Satan and death will be destroyed. For us, our part in this story of God’s glory, grace and love will wrap up in a matter of a few years. Life is too short to waste upon the futile schemes of men. As Solomon observed, “I remember my affliction and my wandering, the bitterness and the gall. I well remember them, and my soul is downcast within me. Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” (Lamentations 3:19-23)
