Greetings and blessings to all of you.  I have been thinking about the world’s response to the current events.  They are similar to the days of Pharaoh in the OT.  God wanted His chosen people (the Israelites) to know him, to honor Him, and to obey Him no matter what was going on.  He chose Moses to inform the political leader of the Egyptians (King Pharaoh) that “By this you shall know I am the Lord”. Pharaoh responded with, “Who is the Lord that I should obey His voice to let Israelites go?” I do not know the Lord, nor will I let Israelites go.”  So, what is going on now in our geo-political system operated by the god of this world? The worldly people are using their “knowledge” to show a disdain against the people of the Word. They would like to see us (during this crisis) as in Pharaoh’s days to operate in “panic” mode. They would like us to begin ‘compromising on our convictions in order to appear intelligent and progressive.’  But God has told the believers, “In this world you will have tribulation, but take courage, I have overcome the world.” And He said, “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise and bring to nothing.....the understanding of the prudence.”  God also said, “Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since in the wisdom of God the world through wisdom did not know God it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.” Just like in the days gone by, it appears that the people of the world have too great a confidence in political institutions rather than that of the government of God. Christians realize that the political system makes good and bad decisions for all of us; but we know (at the end of the day) that those decisions are under the control of the sovereignty of God. God knew that Pharaoh was not going to allow the Israelites freedom. God says, “In his heart a man plans his course but the Lord determines his steps.”  God wanted the Israelites to have the Red Sea experience so they would  (a) never forget Him (b) trust Him in ALL crisis (c) testify about the wonders of God. So, saints this is “such a time as this” that what the enemy planned for our harm Yaweh meant it for our good and His glory”; so respond like a true Saint.  AMEN
