The Bible informs us that after everything is over and done with that there are, and will be, only two kinds of people.
In the now there are those of course, who are fence straddlers. They don’t find getting to the bottom of things all that important. They rely on so called experts, who have agendas. In the end, or better stated: in the age to come, the issue becomes a matter of light and darkness; heaven or hell. There Truth abides only in the light. Evil abides only in the darkness. Deception abides only in the darkness. Jesus actually had something interesting to say about this age, which points out how these differences can manifest differently in this age:
Luke 16:8 “And his master praised the unrighteous manager because he had acted shrewdly; for the sons of this age are more shrewd in relation to their own kind than the sons of light. (NASB1995)
When you read this entire parable, Jesus seems to be letting us know that darkness actually can and even does overtake the light in this age through shrewdness. We tend to think the opposite, that light and truth can and does overtake darkness. But this may not be correct. So, how are we to apply this statement of our Lord to our own dealings as light bearers in this age. Shedding truth or light upon what is darkness sometimes might require shrewdness. This seems to be The Lord’s message. So how can we apply shrewdness to what is happening in our time, so that we actually have a positive impact on what is otherwise dark.
As I began to think about this, it struck me that perhaps a better way to reveal truth about evil would be to reveal the evil in a different “light”, where the truth actually has it’s effect in our favor rather than against us.
Right now House Bill HR1, is being brought forth to completely eliminate voter ID; to utilize drop boxes, to utilize paper ballots. To basically as a matter of law, take everything that in the previous election was done illegally and make it legal. Well if it’s legal to cheat then we should begin to advertise on our social media platforms the benefits of this law to us in winning elections in the future. We should talk of the benefits of having control of the election machine algorithms in the Republican controlled counties. After all we control so many more counties than do the Democrats. We should speak of how we may never need to have another Democrat President as a result of this law. We can now request ballots for our kids and our dead parents and grandparents. We can vote for others who don’t care to vote for themselves. We can harvest ballots. In other words we can more effectively shed light upon evil by being shrewd. After all we are a nation of laws, and this is apparently now going to be the law.
It is my thinking that were we to actually do this, the bill would be dropped so quickly, because the media would immediately ridicule us and our spin, and it would happen so fast that as they say; that it would make your head spin.
And as for BLM and white racism, what would happen if we all would begin chatting about going before the court with a petition to become BLACK. “I identify as black, I no longer feel that I can in good conscience remain and identify as white. All whites are racist, and to be black is a license to be racist against whites. I want to bury the white race, eliminate it, but I can’t do that and remain white. Therefore I petition myself to be black.”
Let’s become more shrewd in our dealings with evil people.
With the pure You will show Yourself pure; And with the devious You will show Yourself shrewd. 2 Samuel 22:27 NKJV
Even God is shrewd in His dealings with evil. Solomon said: cut the baby in half, and the evil was exposed. If you don’t know that event in Solomon’s early rule, you should look it up.
