Confusion: friend or foe?

In days gone by, the watchman on the wall would keep a vigilant eye out for all comers who may endanger the inhabitants within the safe confines of the wall surrounding the city.  He would sound the alarm if an enemy approached.  He would ask, essentially, “Who goes there, friend or foe?” if he did not know the identity and the intent of a stranger.

Whereas the city wall has long since been replaced by other defensive measures, the need for a watchman on the wall remains.  This is one of the primary responsibilities of national leaders and national armies.

Our national leader seems confused about who is our friend and who is our foe.  Israel is not our foe, they are our friend.  Iran is not our friend, they are our foe.  Yet the administration’s policies and decisions reflect the opposite.

As the article linked insinuates, who in their right mind would trust this nation.  They would more rightly think, “With friends like this, who needs enemies?”

The Lord is not the author of confusion, He is the God of order.  Confusion comes from our enemy.

Confusion: doing whatever is right in your own eyes

I read the following article and was knocked almost speechless.

The sheer magnitude of confusion in our society is about to erupt like a volcano.  We have not just forgotten and neglected the Living God, we have ushered Him out of our society.  Woe!

We stand on the brink of history repeating itself.  To the idolatrous and perverse nation of Judah the Lord said, “That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the LORD:  Which say to the seers, ‘See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits:  Get you out of the way, turn aside out of the path, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us.’
Wherefore thus saith the Holy One of Israel, Because ye despise this word, and trust in oppression and perverseness, and stay thereon:  Therefore this iniquity shall be to you as a breach ready to fall, swelling out in a high wall, whose breaking comes suddenly at an instant.   And he shall break it as the breaking of the potter’s vessel that is broken in pieces; he shall not spare: so that there shall not be found in the bursting of it a shard to take fire from the hearth, or to take water withal out of the pit.”  (Isaiah 30:9-14)

Satan is the author of confusion, God is the God of order.  God’s order is revealed to man in His Word, the Bible.  Unless this nation repents of its confusion, it is not going to end well.  If you are confused, seek the God of order while He may be found, then finish well your race.
