CLOUDY-SKIES: When the sky is cloudy… generally there’s going to be a ‘rain-a-coming.’ Is there a cloud hanging over your deal; your company image, or your own image… a potential pay raise; career opportunity gone amiss; or maybe…your marriage going out the back door?
There are People (leaders) in trouble everywhere… every day brings a new revelation about someone’s tail being caught in a crack. Folly-wood seems to be leading the pack the last few weeks. There are new revelations about a conflict going on with the Dems/HRC/Mueller/Comey/Russia, etc. and there are many, and various… important political implications involved. There are governors and congressional members going to jail, and now…Bush #1 seems to have a “hand” it. Some very prominent and wealthy people involved in all sorts of bribes, i.e. pharmaceuticals and government corruption. What’s next? Is there ‘no end’ to this moral decay?
A few reasons might be: poor judgment, even poor consultancy, weak skill-sets, lack of funding, weak commitment, or lagging corporate, employee, citizen… and legislative support. There is much time, too much money, and ‘too much POWER’… being wasted, or put in the wrong (worldly) areas… maybe, even… their personal pockets.
1 Corinthians 6:9-11 – Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
The reason there is such a ‘push’ to “set God aside” is that by instituting LAWS that forbid PRAYER, and WORSHIP…and allow a ‘genderless society’…one that the government and the court system… PERMITS and legalizes SIN!! ….Such so, that SIN does not exist.
Possible solutions: recommitment towards all of those weak points, but more importantly…the re-evaluation of the overall POA (plans of action). And, even, a few ‘special elections,’ or as the saying goes…draining the swamp.
Jesus gives us a wake-up call, through the letter from …Luke 12:54-59 – Jesus spoke to the crowd. He said, “You see a cloud rising in the west. Right away you say, ‘It’s going to rain.’ And it does. The south wind blows. So you say, ‘It’s going to be hot.’ And it is. You pretenders! You know how to understand the appearance of the earth and the sky. Why can’t you understand the meaning of what is happening right now? “Why don’t you judge for yourselves what is right? Suppose someone has a claim against you, and you are on your way to court. Try hard to settle the matter on the way. If you don’t, that person may drag you off to the judge. The judge may turn you over to the officer. And the officer may throw you into prison. I tell you, you will not get out until you have paid the very last penny!”
…Blessings to all…as we seek His way…cjlb…10/28/2017
