Being Wise in a Wicked World

March 9, 2020

Share this article:

Why do the wicked still live, continue on, also become very powerful? Job 21:7

Over 4000 years ago, Job asked the same thing many of us ask today… why do the wicked seemingly get a free pass? King David echoed the same sentiments 1000 years later:

“For the wicked boasts of his heart’s desire, and the greedy man curses and spurns the LORD.” Psa. 10:3

Obviously we know that on Judgment Day the righteous win and the wicked lose, but it just seems like God is letting a lot of very wicked people get away with a lot of bad stuff during their time on this earth, lying in particular.

But the Lord says He is always watching the world. The wicked are not getting away with anything.

“For the eyes of the LORD move to and fro throughout the earth …” 2Chr. 16:9a

God sees all and knows all. He’s always sovereign. Even though sometimes it seems like He's silent, He says He’s watching—He sees all, and knows all.

O LORD, You have searched me and known me. You know when I sit down and when I rise up; You understand my thought from afar. You scrutinize my path and my lying down, And are intimately acquainted with all my ways. Even before there is a word on my tongue, behold, O LORD, You know it all. Psa. 139:1-4

Even though this is lost in our present-day political arena, we Believers know He’s the One Who puts people into power to achieve His purposes.

“…whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him.” Col. 1:16b

God controls the world’s leaders’ decisions, whether they know it or not.

“The king’s heart is like channels of water in the hand of the LORD; He turns it wherever He wishes.” Prov. 21:1

“… Let [the wicked] be caught in the plots which they have devised.” Ps. 10:2b

Therefore, sometimes God lets people reap what they sow in this life, before the Rapture or final Judgment Day. Not always, but sometimes. For instance, now we’re beginning to see God exposing the corruption in our political system—the depths of which few realized.

The Washington Post has a new article entitled, "Obama took lying to new heights with the Iran deal." (19) Unbelievable!! And as they wrote, if you change out "Obama" for "Trump" in what happened, it would be all over for President Trump.

No wonder so many politicians were trying to keep an outsider, Donald Trump, from getting elected or from being reelected. They’re being caught with their hands in the financial cookie jar.

One day, hopefully sooner than later, God will expose EVERYTHING. The righteous will win. The wicked (as defined by Scripture) will lose. We have to be content with God’s timing.

But of course politics isn’t the only area where lies are rampant these days—here are some other things to watch where God will eventually expose what’s really going on:

Things have gone downhill since we publicly kicked God out of the classroom in 1962. And with God out, guess who filled the gap? Satan, but not with a red outfit and a pointy tail. No, he spiffed up, sounded compassionate and concerned, and he grabbed full sway over education.

“No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.” 2Cor. 11:14

If you look closely at what kids are being taught these days, it’s not hard to understand why so many think it would be better to change our quite successful Republic and become another failed socialist country. Over 90% of all college level professors admit to supporting issues that are opposite what the Bible teaches.

Evolution, socialism, perversion tolerance, gender neutral identities, lack of absolutes, American success is due to evil white men...to name a few, but the list is long.

Recently a teacher in Indiana was fired for exposing what the schools were openly teaching—anti-God, anti-Bible across the board.(1) More will come out and one day the world will see what Satan did/is doing in our schools.

Climate Change
More and more scientists are speaking up about the stupidity of the so-called “Climate Change.”(2) First it was touted that the earth was cooling. When that fell apart, then they said the earth is overheating. Then that fell apart so they changed to just “climate change.” This is because the real reason is that the world elites want to use Climate Change to gain more control. The truth is beginning to come out.

Compass posted an article documenting the inaccuracies lauded by politicians and world leaders entitled “Climate Change is Real” because one day God WILL burn up the earth! (3)

Satan gets an “A+” for this one. How in the world Christians sat back and did practically nothing while women and men murdered 60 million innocent Americans is beyond understanding. Over 50 million abortions/murders are performed worldwide each year.

Planned Parenthood, who is responsible for the vast majority of abortions in America, gives out birth control pills that are 91% effective (according to the CDC), meaning one out of every ten times a women has sex, she can get pregnant. No wonder Planned Parenthood wants to give out birth control pills—women are being set up to need abortions without their realizing it!

Satan hates God so much he wants women to abort their babies because every new life is designed and created in the image of God. Now with the ultrasound showing a living baby in the womb, it’s becoming harder and harder to call it “just a clump of cells.”

Women like Abby Johnson and others are coming forward to condemn the murdering of innocent babies. God is exposing the abortion lies, and hopefully the Supreme Court will soon stop these horrific murders of our most innocent citizens.

Since 1976 Round Up has been used as pesticide for crops. Now we find out it’s not only causing cancer for people who spray the pesticide on their grains but also for those who eat the food. Compass posted an article on compass.org entitled “Killers in the Kitchen” that explains this and a lot more.(4) God is allowing the truth to come out, albeit slowly. In the meantime, pay attention to the ingredients in your food purchases!

Pharmaceutical Companies
The first thing you need to remember is that ALL drug companies are in business to make a profit, and the bigger the profit the better.

They’re not operating like non-profit hospitals that are trying to get you well. The bottom line is that they're in business to make money, not save you money.

This is why the drugs available in America are the MOST expensive in the world. You can buy the same drugs in almost all other countries for a lot less.

Drugs are generally good. I was close to death about 10 years ago until they found a drug to cure an infection in my neck. Naturally they wanted to charge me $3,000 a week for eight weeks. It’s hard to argue about the price since it was going to save my life. Thankfully, my salary was so minimal I qualified for free drugs. 🙂

But not everything the drug companies test and market is in our best interest. A whistle-blower working for Tamiflu just exposed that the $1.5 billion it billed our government for medicine to stop a potential influenza pandemic was based on falsified studies.(4) In other words, the drugs don’t work. It was proven that the pharmaceutical company knowingly lied in order to make a profit. Never forget that.

Vaccines are another example. First let me say, I’m not anti-vaccine. It seems reasonable that there are times they've been quite useful. Smallpox was wiped out by vaccines. And most of the people my age had polio vaccines in the 1950s and we seemed to do ok.

However, most kids were older when they received these single vaccines in the 50s and 60s. And those shots didn’t contain mercury or aluminum like today that have been linked to cancer and autoimmune disease.(10) Yes, you read that correctly.

Problems started in 1986 when Congress inexplicably exempted drug companies from lawsuits.(8) One of the stipulations to receiving this exemption was that they had to do periodic scientific studies to show all they were offering the public was good and above board. Yet, since 1986 not one study has been done.

But it gets worse, not only are the pharmaceutical companies not liable, can't be sued, they got the government to set up a tax payer funded program to deal with all the lawsuits stemming from the side effects of vaccines. Called National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, it pays out hundreds of millions of dollars every year.(17)

Do you see a problem here? I bet if you checked the reelection bank accounts of those who voted for this exemption back in 1986, you’d be dumbfounded!

But regardless of how they got it through Congress, they got exempted from lawsuits. And with no potential liability, the drug companies are now telling our doctors that our children need 72 vaccine shots before the age of 18, and over half of them before age 6! (15) Good grief!! Don’t think for a minute that our God-designed human bodies need 72 shots to live safely in this world!

The New York Times said "Vaccine Costs Are Soaring." Follow the dollar. If they’re making over $100 per vaccine on our 80 million children in the USA, no wonder they’re pushing all these vaccines.(16)

Do the math, billions of dollars are at stake. According to the CDC, from 2006 to 2018 over 3.7 billion doses of covered vaccines were distributed in the U.S. The pharmaceutical industry revenues are now approaching 1 trillion dollars.(14) Really big bucks!

This may or may not have something to do with vaccines, but verified statistics show that the increase in autism/developmental disability has increased from 1 in 10,000 in the 1950s and 1960s, to 1 in 5,000 in the 1970s, to 1 in 300 in the 1990s, to 1 in 150 in the 2000s. Currently the CDC says the ratio is around 1 in 45.

Many expect the next round of surveys will show 1 in 25 of our children are dealing with developmental disabilities. Boys are four to five times more likely to be affected, meaning about 1 in 5 male children have some form of developmental disability. Ask any school teacher how many kids in their class have autistic or developmental problems.

When faced with FACTS like that, who in their right mind doesn’t think we have a health crisis with our children? Our kids are the most vaccinated children in the world and yet they're the sickest in the world.(11) But if you ask questions about this, you’re considered in the same league as flat-earthers.

The public is waking up to these facts and eventually the truth will come out, but at what cost to our children? If you want more info about vaccines, I've put two good resources at the bottom of this article... a book and a website. Please don't shoot the messenger!

When you read all this, you have to keep in mind that this world is not heaven and we’re not up against people, but rather the dark god of this world. (2 Cor. 4:4)

Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Eph. 6:11-12

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
The CDC has long been suspected of being heavily influenced by big Pharma. For instance, the CDC releases summary stats for each of their always-long publications that sound awful... like “30K will die of influenza and pneumonia this year!” Scary, huh? Well, not really.

If you read the whole CDC report, it tells a different story. Most of the deaths in that particular stat, 94%, are from pneumonia. And a very large number of our elderly population dies of pneumonia. But the CDC lumps pneumonia deaths with influenza deaths in the summary page, knowing few will read the whole report.

And by listing influenza and pneumonia together, and putting influenza first in the list of two, it sounds like you need to get a flu shot or you might die of influenza! You would think the drug companies owned the CDC!

But let me repeat, I’m not against drugs. I just see too much potential for drug companies to lie to doctors about what they want them to buy without any repercussions when caught. Docs don’t have time to do their own research so they have no choice but trust the pharmaceutical companies who tell them they have “research” to back up their claims.

However, I think it’s possible that the drug companies could be lying by citing skewed statistical evidence in order to sell more drugs. We have proof they’ve lied before, as I've shown above.

If that IS the case, that they’ve been knowingly lying to docs, eventually whistleblowers will come forward and expose them. I certainly hope the pharmaceutical companies are not blatantly hiding research in order to sell more drugs.

But, at the moment, why do our children get the most shots/vaccines but are the sickest in the world and getting worse each year?(11) The truth will come out.

And some argue the drug companies DO control the CDC. They point to the fact that over 25% of former Food and Drug Administration employees who approved drugs now work for big Pharma companies. (12)

The story of how aspartame, an artificial sweetener, got approved after twice being denied is legendary. It was approved late on a Friday, the person approving resigns, and Monday morning goes to work for a pharmaceutical company with a $500,000 bonus.(18)

If you were an FDA employee and big Pharma wanted you to approve a drug, then resign and come to work for them for a $500K bonus and a big salary, you too would be tempted. We are all sinners. Not an excuse, just a fact!

For the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil, 1Tim. 6:10a

Every year we have a flu season and many of us will catch the flu. It happens. Pretty much everyone has had the flu at least once in their life. You just deal with it. But this year the coronavirus, referring to two specific strains of flu, has become a media sensation. But the stats don't bear out the amount of coverage given it.

As of a few days ago, there were about 80,000 cases of coronavirus worldwide. 78,000 or so are in China and only 2,000 cases of coronavirus were in other countries. There have been 2,595 deaths in China, 23 in the rest of the world. Yet all flu in general will cause roughly 400,000 to 500,000 deaths worldwide this season.

So why are we so worried about a the people who have died from the coronavirus when hundreds of thousands die every year from the flu? Could this be a political fake news to stop a rolling economy?

If not political, then it’s about money. Again, just follow the dollar. I believe the drug companies could be mesmerized by the financial benefits from selling millions of vaccines. Other than lying about what's going on, there’s no rhyme or reason for all of the hype given to this coronavirus flu.

God designed our bodies to combat diseases, and they do quite well when left alone. But it's just all too easy to make millions of dollars scaring people into getting a flu shot by just giving a strain a name like “SARS” or “coronavirus” and mentioning “pandemic.” Then the fear sets in.

Now the Governor of California just declared a state of emergency because of just one death attributed to the coronavirus. Yet last year thousands of Californians died from the flu and not one peep from the Gov's office.

Tuberculosis is an infectious disease with 10 million new cases last year killing 1.45 million people. Why is that not catching any publicity when the numbers are far, far worse? So who is choosing what we should worry about?

You would almost think the media have to have an ongoing reason to blame something on President Trump. They've tried Climate Change, Brexit, Russia collusion and Ukraine and they've all fizzled into nothing.

This picture was taken at a doctor's office and posted on Facebook—interesting!

But whether the coronavirus is political or it's big Pharma trying to sell more flu shots, a lot of lying is going on. And if Satan is getting ready to take over the earth post-Rapture, we're definitely watching him ramp-up!

You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies. John 8:44

If you do get the coronavirus flu, 80% of the cases are what you would call mild flu and you should recover quickly. And of the other 20%, only those who are really, really old and really, really sick and in poor health are in danger of exiting this mortal world.

Instead of running room to room with our hands in the air, maybe it’s time to step back and balance the fact God is in control and before you were born he knew your death day.

Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Your book were all written the days that were ordained for me, when as yet there was not one of them. Psa. 139:16

And you can’t change the day you die!

“And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life?” Matt. 6:27

But we are also to choose to be smart and not put the Lord to a foolish test (Luke 4:12). We don’t go stand in traffic citing God’s providence… not long at least. Instead we’re commanded to pray for wisdom to make good decisions.

So suffice it to say, Satan is alive and well and his lies are getting more and more bold. He knows his time is about over and he’s doing all he can to cause humans pain. And never forget that ultimately we will all be disease free in heaven if we BELIEVE the Good News of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection. That's really good news for the families dealing with all these developmental disabilities. One day their kids will be 100% cured for eternity!

These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life. 1John 5:13

And all this is going on WITH the Holy Spirit, the Restrainer, still present on the earth. Imagine what it will be like after the Rapture when Satan will really go after the nations!

“How you have fallen from heaven, O star of the morning, son of the dawn! You have been cut down to the earth, you who have weakened the nations! Is. 14:12

We are the most successful nation in the history of the world. And it's no secret that Satan looks forward to the day he has unrestrained power over both the United States and the whole earth. (Is. 24)

A good place to do research on the effect of drugs on our kids is on Amazon.com—because they just sell books and don’t block your searches. And the reviews for each book are incredibly helpful and insightful.

An excellent book I found on Amazon is How to End the Autism Epidemic, authored by a Stanford graduate who minutely details the parallel of autism to the rise of drugs given to children. Also, another good book is Dissolving Illusions by Dr. Suzanne Humphries.

The best website I found is TRUTH WILL PREVAIL: http://www.chiropractic.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/1200-studies-The-Truth-Will-Prevail-3.pdf

Robert De Niro, whose son has autism spectrum disorder, once held a press conference in which he announced he'd offer $100,000 to anyone who can present them with a peer-reviewed study that proves thimerosal (used in vaccines) is safe. No takers.
