Six Ways Leftist Society Is Courting Divine Judgment
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Isaiah 5:20 [ESV]
In the verse above, the greatest prophet of the Old Testament states that there are six things that people do to invite a judgment of “woe” from the LORD. It is likely that if a similar public pronouncement were made today, it would be met with mocking and derision by most in society.
After all, leftist society as a whole doesn’t acknowledge God exists, and perchance they are mistaken, they fall back on the idea that God probably doesn’t care what we do here on earth. At least, that is their present perception of reality.
Those of us who hold the opposite view are largely seen in various pockets within the cloak of society spread out over many locales and among many churches, both in America and many other places around the globe. However, I persist in holding the view that not everyone in the opposing camp is beyond reaching with the truth if we continue to expound it.
I am also not naive enough to believe that most of them can be convinced, at least not yet, not only that God exists, but that He is far from pleased with human society at present. Nevertheless, the truth matters no matter how many or how few embrace it as such. That is why I issue the following as a warning to our society as a whole that we are specifically courting or inviting the Divine judgment of God to descend upon us in six devastating ways.
The Left is characterizing evil as good
There is a multitude of examples in leftist society that fit into this category. The most egregious of things such as legalized abortion and so-called gay “marriage,” both of which have been around for decades and become fully accepted and celebrated within much of society.
However, the recent additions of “trans” rights as some sort of civil right and the illegal mandating of COVID jabs and mask-wearing (both of which do more harm than good) has only added to the total number of items that are evil but are being claimed as good and needed measures. The same is true of the advocation of Critical Race Theory to be taught in our public education system and the complete open-border policy of the current unduly selected administration in Washington D.C.
Of course, we must add to this heinous list the stolen presidential election of 2020 and the evil done against those on January 6th, 2021 who wished to exercise their own constitutional right to a redress of grievances. The arrest and illegal confinement of those people is heralded on the Left as a just and good thing, as is the murder of Ashli Babbitt.
The Left is characterizing good as evil
In addition to demonizing the good and moral actions of those who push back against evils such as legalized abortion, the Left is constantly engaged in attacking anyone who insists on exercising their God-given rights such as the right to free speech, freedom of religion, and the freedom to bear arms as spelled out in our First and Second Amendments to the Constitution.
However, the most concerning example of this phenomenon is found in how the Left has striven for many decades to characterize the traditional family unit as an evil thing to be shunned and mocked at every turn. Moreover, it is the Marxist Left’s (but I repeat myself) fervent desire to abolish the traditional family altogether.
Today’s radical Left is being true to their roots and continues to seek the annihilation of the family. In fact, they don’t even try to hide their intentions anymore.
[Black Lives Matter] is a large organization on the level of a corporation and has a far more expansive agenda than simply racial justice and one completely oriented toward the Leftist-Socialist ideals.
This is easily confirmed by visiting their website and examining the “What We Believe,” statements therein. There are plenty of declarations that one would expect to see, however, there are also others that bear a strong resemblance to the goals of the Socialist Left today….
In the document, BLM states that it is a “family-friendly” organization. However, in the next statement, we discover what the organization’s leadership considers to be a true “family.”
“We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.”
The Left is saying darkness really means light!
In recent times the Left in society has become prolific in their attempts to shroud in darkness both their agenda and their actions. We saw this throughout the 2020 election campaign when the Left kept their candidate almost sequestered in his home.
This particular effort has continued during the tenure of our unduly selected feckless leader. We have seen multiple incidents of Biden refusing to answer questions at the few press conferences he has personally given.
However, the worst occurrences of this have been through the media, both the ‘mainstream’ Leftmedia and their allies in social media, especially Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. These entities have focused most of their energy on censoring information concerning any questioning of the 2020 election results and any doubts raised about the efficacy and safety of the COVID jabs.
Here is a recent example of YouTube’s censorship efforts.
The company has banned channels associated with anti-vaccine activists like Joseph Mercola and Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Once again, rather than rebutting or refuting claims made by others, many sought to silence those with opposing views. YouTube will not allow people to hear views that do not comport with an approved range of opinions. The move magnifies concerns that we are seeing the emergence of a new type of state media as private companies conduct censorship operations barred by the Constitution for the government to conduct directly
This censorship is routinely defended by social media oligarchs as necessary to combat “misinformation,” which they say is too dangerous for the public to view. In other words, they’re telling us that throwing a cloak of darkness over any other narrative is really giving us the truth and light we need as determined not by facts and debate, but by them!
The Left is saying that shedding light is really spreading darkness
The contrast to this is that Leftist politicians and media object to real journalism and fact-finding as ‘dangerous.’ This has been manifested on a number of issues, including the aforementioned censorship of anything questioning the 2020 election or the COVID mandates.
However, one of the most blatant attempts to shut down those who would criticize the harm being caused by the current Leftist political leadership and shine the light of accountability on officials responsible for such harm occurred within the U.S. military. Lt. Colonel Stuart Schaller posted a video on social media criticizing the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster and demanding accountability of those commanders in the military for this debacle.
That is a very reasonable thing to ask in light of the national disgrace this administration’s actions have resulted in as we left Afghanistan and also left behind American citizens and weaponry for the enemy to use against us. His reward was to have the military attempt to court-martial him.
Thus someone who was shedding valuable light upon a very dark situation is vilified and possibly will be punished harshly for this. It is one of the many points of revealing light that the Left wishes to condemn as darkness because it is critical of the Biden regime.
The Left claims that what is bitter is actually sweet
The pattern being displayed here by the Left is one of continual deception on every issue of importance. It’s the punchline for the old joke, ‘How do you know when [insert Leftist official or media personality here] is lying?’ Answer: ‘Their lips are moving.’
A few days ago, numbers on the current state of the American economy were released. What they revealed was something that everyone knows, the outlook for the immediate future and beyond is grim, especially with the looming specter of runaway inflation staring us in the face.
The cause of this development is directly tied to the policies of the current leftist in charge, or at least nominally in charge, Joe Biden, and of those leftist governors of Democratic states. The policy most responsible for this is the threatened vaxx mandate, which is not officially in place outside of the military and the majority of federal government employees and those who do business with the government.
It is why there are now record numbers of people in America quitting their jobs, and why nearly 500,000 containers on cargo ships are sitting idle at sea causing a shortage of both labor and goods. This is happening at a time of peak demand on goods by consumers for the upcoming holiday season.
Another large contributing factor is the profligate printing of dollars to fund the excess spending by the government. This creates an abundance of dollars that hold less purchasing power.
The combination of these factors produces a bitter economic pill that we are being asked to swallow. Moreover, Americans are being told that we shouldn’t be upset about this, as explained by the infamous Washington Post in a recent piece featured in Breitbart.
In what seems like an attempt to distance President Joe Biden from the supply chain crisis ravaging the country and the globe, the Washington Post — which is owned by Jeff Bezos, one of the richest men in the world — published an op-ed on Monday telling American consumers to “try to lower expectations” moving forward.
This is reminiscent of a line by Judge Smails in the comedy “Caddyshack” when he tells his underling, “You’ll get nothing and like it!” It’ll take a lot more than ‘a spoonful of sugar’ to make this bitter pill go down.
The Left claims that what is sweet is really bitter
In the midst of all the societal turmoil generated by the Left, there are emerging certain very determined people who are protesting and fighting against the heinous leftist actions being forced upon us all. These people are exercising the sweetness of liberty as declared from the very beginning of our nation by our founders.
It is indeed sweet to witness so many ordinary people standing up to confront draconian mandates and refusing to bend the knee for COVID mandates and refusing to accept an open-border policy and demanding more accountability from those in charge of this mess created by the Left. However, the Left is desperately trying to claim that such ‘uppity’ behavior from the peasants is a bitter and harmful thing.
A prominent example from recent days was the mobilization of the Federal Bureau of Investigation by the current Attorney General of the U.S. against parents who push back against horrible policies in their public schools at local school board meetings. Fortunately, this is receiving considerable pushback, highlighted by A.G. Marrick Garland being grilled by Congress at a hearing a few days ago.
It is this kind of pushback from both elected officials who care about the truth and their constituents, and most of all from parents and other citizens, that has the Left scared to death. It is why they believe they must try to gaslight Americans into surrendering their rights by telling them such liberty is not right!
These six examples of the modern fulfillment of what Isaiah received from the LORD are courting a Divine judgment of “woe” against this land. A “woe” pronounced by God against any people is a warning that God’s just punishment is at the door.
How harsh and final this judgment may be is contingent upon the LORD’s timetable. We may be at the edge of the true end times when the accounts of all humanity will be settled by Jesus Himself and a “new heavens and earth” will emerge populated by Christ’s faithful, while those against Him receive a terrible punishment.
Or we may be in for a penultimate judgment that requires national repentance to recover from and will also be harsh and difficult to endure, especially for those without faith. If that is you, dear reader, I urge you to take stock of yourself and your standing before God and turn to Christ today.
The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. Psalm 145:18 [ESV]
