Summary: Be warned, the majority of crisis have a deep sinister purpose and are designed to lure you , discourage you and frustrate you.
There are a lot of people who are in the middle of crisis’s right now.
I mean the attacks seem to be coming out of nowhere, without notice and without discriminating.
Everyone is susceptible, and no one is excluded
Be warned, the majority of these crisis have a deep sinister purpose and are designed to lure you , discourage you and frustrate you.
Proverbs 1:17 Surely, in vain the net is spread In the sight of any bird;
In English , no one would set a trap in plain view of its prey , it has to be disguised and discreetly set .
And a lot of times the disguise is a crisis using fear and panic as a misdirection taking you attention off the real hidden agenda
1Peter 5:8 Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
Using noise misdirection and disguises the real danger
Most of these circumstances come along to cause kaous and division, in the midst of any crisis stay calm look for the division and you will find the trap.
Chapter 12 of Matthew is all about , traps , signs , division and warnings
Matthew 12:9Departing from there, He went into their synagogue. 10And a man was there whose hand was withered. And they questioned Jesus, asking, “Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath?”—so that they might accuse Him. 11And He said to them, “What man is there among you who has a sheep, and if it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will he not take hold of it and lift it out? 12“How much more valuable then is a man than a sheep! So then, it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath.”
Here is another example of Jesus defending His love for His sheep.
But what this really is , is another attempt to trap Jesus to paint Him as a law breaker, so they can accuse and discredit Him
Just like the time they dragged the woman caught in adultery.
The law of Moses says she should be stoned to death , what do you say we should do .
The law says she should be stoned but at who hands , from guilty hands comes corrupt justice
Its not a matter of right or wrong because we all are sinners and fall short of His glory .
But the question is what gives others the authority to deliver justice and inflict their own variety of vengeance .
And what is true justice anyways, how could it ever be punishment delivered by the hands of angry sinners. Imagine someone who has done far worse than you acting as your judge
For the Bible is very clear
Romans 12:19 Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, "VENGEANCE IS MINE, I WILL REPAY," says the Lord.
Leave room for God’s wrath, let God be the judge ,
Revenge always makes me think huh what are you doing ?
I mean we rush to God in times of need ,for pray , for help and forgiveness having deep conversations with Him and even bargaining with Him. If you help me out of this problem I promise I will do better give more of myself
But then in revenge there’s zero hesitation, we throw down pass judgment , retaliate . We need to slow down pump our breaks and have the same conversations with God ask for His wisdom in this .
You know what you will find that God has already taken His vengeance and chastened the person , and they have already paid the price
But because we are so amped up these day , and we really are
Have you noticed that everything on the planet is in this accelerated pace From energy drinks to street drugs is all about are all getting people edgy and wired and one then one thing sets everyone off!
Because everyone is so amped up that they run right into that trap head first , and we are caught before we even realize it .
Its true because we want to take vengeance and play Christian vigilantes, because somewhere someone has to stop these awful sinners , I mean maybe God didn’t see this and I have to take care of it .
The problem with that train of thinking is instead of being the offended we become the offenders and now we become the problem the ones who God will now take His wrath and your haste you took the bait didn’t see the net and just fell into the trap .
That’s why it says leave room, that means get out the way, and stay out of the way, it is above your pay grade
