In 1956, the leader of the communist Soviet Union, Nikita Khrushchev said, “We will take America without firing a shot. We do not have to invade the U.S. We will destroy you from within….” At the time the idea seemed preposterous. Since that time the thinking has gone from, “That will never happen,” to an observation where one sees Khrushchev’s words coming to fruition. While the Soviet Union is no longer the driving force behind communism, China and even some shadowy politicians and bureaucrats in the United States are the current torch bearers.

Our God is a God of order not chaos. Elements in our society thrive on creating chaos in order to first destroy and eventually claim they can ‘fix’ the problems they in fact had created. They lie and deceive in an effort to create a climate of abject fear. The lost, which do not have a foundation based on God’s Truth are consumed by this fear. These poor souls are devastated with the information being supplied to them by the mass media.  This mass media conglomerate is just another arm of an “elite” group who wish to gain control over the whole world.

This group had remained a kind of secret society for many, many years. They have now come out into the open for those with eyes to see. The most obvious deception playing out is how these imposters have taken a page from the communists’ playbook. The trick being employed is simply changing the descriptive names that had been used by Marxist communists. The Marxists proclaimed there had to be a revolution of the proletariat against the bourgeoisie. In Russia that is what happened. Today the fight is to become the oppressed verses the oppressor. The new mantra includes the idea of whites as the oppressors and supremacists, while everyone else, including women, are the oppressed.

This corrupted world view is many faceted. They create false divisions where the claim is that white people have the advantage because whites built a social order specifically for the whites. This is known as the Critical Race Theory. The elites of the education system are pushing CRT in the classroom and the children’s class books. These vile people are even claiming that parents aren’t the ultimate guardians of their own children.  

The judicial system has also been corrupted. Cities have had major areas destroyed by the lawless. The police are being reviled and judges are knowingly releasing dangerous criminals back into society. This is done knowing those criminals will be repeating their various offenses.

To what ends has this corruption and deceit been unleashed upon our country? Not so coincidentally, other nations of the world are experiencing similar conditions. How is it that in such a short amount of time upheaval and discord has come to rule how people relate to one another? The scriptures give us answers to these questions and others like them.

Jesus describes the people perpetrating this evil upon the world. It states in (NASB) John 8: 44 “You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”

Longstanding norms are being destroyed and those who still publically uphold them are being ridiculed. Now is not the time for us to be placing blame as to how this corruption gained a foothold and has been allowed to come to be. No, it is time to stand firm and act. The Bible has much to say about “standing firm.” But it might be a good plan to listen to what Peter tells us to do. From I Peter 3: 13-16 it says, “13Who is there to harm you if you prove zealous for what is good? 14But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, 15but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence; 16and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.”

This scripture is telling us what to do while we are standing firm. It also re-addresses our true vocation as believers. Giving “a defense” is what apologetics is. Apologetics also lays out the Gospel of Christ Jesus to non-believers. Not all of the non-believers we have contact with have sold their souls to the devil. There are many individual being duped by the lies being spread, and YES, the main stream media is a major contributor.

Our country having been established as a republic is not perfect and democracy has major flaws. But to think any form of government, i.e. communism, which has killed millions of people to fictitiously distribute “equity” and gain power, is the better form of government is daft, disingenuous and evil.

The only perfect kingdom is currently found in heaven and our Lord has told us in Matthew 19, Matthew 22, Mark 12, and Luke 10 that, “. . . you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.” One would think that giving others an opportunity to live eternally with God, the KING of KINGS, is showing that kind of love to others.

So, now is the time to be about the business Jesus has called us to do.
