I thought of another proof of God’s existence. It came to me as Nancy and I talked about the astonishing moral blindness that has so clearly fallen across America.
When has it ever happened in our history that publicly avowed socialists (who are really fascists by another name) so boldly declared their plan to dismantle everything that has made America the greatest nation EVER to exist on planet earth? I’m not sure if Hitler’s Mein Kampf was as forthright in his demonic plan for Europe and the rest of the world.
In their crosshairs are not only our religious freedoms, the right to speak our mind without fear of violence, and to be held innocent until PROVEN guilty – but they have marked out for destruction the very fabric of the Constitution of the United States.
And this is the astounding thing: They do it with the joyful approval of a growing number of Americans.
If you don’t know what I am talking about then either you’re not paying attention, or you’re among the blind.
And therein is the proof of the supernatural.
Such blindness reminds me of several texts in both the Old and New Testaments. Here are only two in particular. The first is from 1 Kings. You can read the entire chapter for context (follow this link), but this small slice of the incident that makes my point:
[The Hebrew prophet] “Micaiah said, “Therefore, hear the word of the Lord. I saw the Lord sitting on His throne, and all the host of heaven standing by Him on His right and on His left. 20 The Lord said, ‘Who will entice Ahab to go up and fall at Ramoth-gilead?’ And one said this while another said that. 21 Then a spirit came forward and stood before the Lord and said, ‘I will entice him.’ 22 The Lord said to him, ‘How?’ And he said, ‘I will go out and be a deceiving spirit in the mouth of all his prophets.’ Then He said, ‘You are to entice him and also prevail. Go and do so.’ 23 Now therefore, behold, the Lord has put a deceiving spirit in the mouth of all these your prophets; and the Lord has proclaimed disaster against you.” (1 Kings 22:19-23)
Did you catch that? God sent a deceiving spirit into the mouths of the false prophets in order to drag Ahab to his death in battle.
And then there’s this text in the New Testament. You can read the chapter for context, but here is the section specific to my point:
8 Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming; 9 that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders, 10 and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. 11 For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, 12 in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness. (2 Thessalonians 2:8-12)
Once again, God sends a deluding influence. They resisted truth, so now their spiritual blindness makes them unable to see truth.
Which brings us to 2018.
There is no other logical explanation for the evil we see paraded before us each time we scan the newscasts – evil that is applauded by so many Americans.
And so again to the ‘proof’: If there is a supernatural blindness, a spiritual covering over their eyes, then there must be a super-natural and spiritual source.
Christians call that source, ‘God.’
And He will not be mocked by those who refuse to see and to hear – and to repent.
We should not be surprised if the blindness gets worse.
