Wisdom is Crying Out At the DNC…(All gods welcome, but One)

Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets:  She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words, saying,  How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?(Proverbs 1:20-22)

 I believe that the Wisdom of God cries out to us through current events, though most just pass by paying no heed to what the Spirit is saying . Of course the Scriptures are full of the revealed Wisdom of God, and the clearest revelation of it is in Jesus Christ himself, but God speaks to us also through history also, especially current history.

Events at the  Democratic Convention offers one such example. Keep in mind that this is a major political party with a large American constituency, and which consistently wins elections in the House, Senate and the White House.

Therefore when the fiasco at the convention, in which language referring to the Judeo-Chrstian God  was removed from the Democratic official platform, the discerning know that God is speaking to this nation, holding up a huge, unflattering mirror. This is who you really are!

Of course the convention was consistent in a perverse way for not only did they remove the Judeo Christian God, but also language affirming Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Jerusalem is the “City of the great King”, the only city where God has placed his own name, as well as the city where Jesus was crucified. The Democratic party officially disavowed God and Jerusalem!

The unwitting parable continued, for when the more politically savvy among the Democrats realized the harm to the party brand, removing God from the plank would incur , they ham handedly “put God back into the platform, over the resounding boos and catcalls from the floor of the convention.

This from Politico article, Jerusalem and God Get Booed at DNC

Delegates and members of the Democratic party booed after former Gov. Ted Strickland (D-OH) discussed God and moved to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Convention chairman Antonio Villaraigosa, mayor of Los Angeles, had to ask for the Yea and Nay vote several times before declaring the motion passed.

C-SPAN cameras captured the dissatisfaction among members after the motion passed.
More information from the Associated Press:
Democrats have changed their convention platform to add a mention of God and declare that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.The move came after criticism from Republicans.Many in the audience booed after the convention chairman, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, ruled that the amendments had been approved despite the fact that a large group of delegates objected.He called for a vote three times before ruling.The party reinstated language from the 2008 platform that said “we need a government that stands up for the hopes, values and interests of working people and gives everyone willing to work hard the chance to make the most of their God-given potential.”The platform also now includes what advisers said was Obama’s personal views on Jerusalem.

I‘m not saying the Democratic party should acknowledge God, after all they are the party of Abortion, and Gay Marriage, and have always been the more antagonistic to true faith of the two parties. But there was a day when you would have had to at least pretend to be pious (like the Republicans do to get the evangelical vote).

It’s not like the Democratic convention is against the idea of “gods”in general. There is a pretty good representation of various false gods getting their equal time at the DNC. Allah is certainly represented in the DNC sponsored “Jummah ” prayer meeting.

So also is Moloch, the ancient Canaanite idol, who demanded the sacrifice of live infants on his superheated arms. It should be noted that Obama, the titular head of the Democratic party, goes beyond a zealous defense of abortion, he passionately fought for the right of the state to starve the hapless infants who might have survived abortion attempts.This did not bother Obama’s constituency in the least!

 

The “goddess of reason” is there also. Remember her? She emerged in the attempt to de -Christianize France in the wake of the French Revolution. This prostitute taken off of the streets was enthroned as “goddess of reason” at Notre Dame Cathedral, in the mob’s  attempt to sacrilege the sanctuary. The left has always been at war with God.

Sandra Fluke is the modern incarnation of the same idol. This democratic operative and 30-year-old professional student came to fame as the spokesperson for all who would force by law or fiat Roman Catholic universities to provide free birth control, and abortion to as part of their “healthcare plans”.

Bacchus and Apollo are at the DNC also, in the demand for the public preference for the unbridled passions of homosexuality, “gay marriage”, “Gay rights”, etc. There is not a state in the Union which has ever voted for “gay marriage”, every referendum has been voted down. But the Left has forced this depraved parody of God’s sacred institution upon us all.

 

And of course Caesar is there. The real philosophy of the left is Statism, the worship of Government. One of the speeches proclaimed that” the only thing all human beings are a part of, is Government”.When you turn your back on the only real God, you end up worshipping Government., looking to it for daily bread, health care, security, compassion, forgiveness, power, glory and the Kingdom! Caesar always ends up persecuting christians sooner or later, because He demands worship.

It seems that  the spectacle we are seeing, of God(and Jerusalem) being disavowed by one of America’s major political parties, and a host of false gods  flooding in to take His place ought to be a portent of something truly awful .  There can be no vacuum.  Jesus warned us in John chapter 5:43

I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive .

It is easy to see how many will be led to worship the AntiChrist! I would venture to say a good number of those in attendance at the DNC would swear that they are christians and are happy to be participating in “history”.

I am not saying the Republican party is flawless, but at least on paper, they resist the agenda of death, gay marriage, abortion, etc. The God of Mitt Romney isn’t the true God either, but there is no way at this point that the Republicans would disavow God at the convention.

America is in trouble and her problem isn’t merely political or financial. We have become enslaved to false gods, and a good portion of us prefer them to even so much as a mention of the real God! Only repentance and revival can bring this nation back from the abyss she looks into. God have mercy on us all, we would do well to listen to Lady Wisdom’s warning,

Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you. Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded; But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:

 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you. Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me: For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord: They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.

 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices. For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them. But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil (Proverbs 1:23-33)

    I’m often of late reminded of the sad history of Israel and Judah following the split which came about after the death of Solomon during the reign of his son Rehoboam. The northern kingdom started out on the wrong foot, as they disowned Jerusalem as their religious capital, choosing to establish their own center and their own religion. Every king that ascended the throne in Samaria “did evil in the sight of the Lord,” starting with Jereboam. The eventual result of this ended in the Northern ten tribes being wiped out or driven into exile by Assyria as a judgment by the God whom they spurned.

    By contrast, Judah maintained a patina of piety which served them well under several kings who served the Lord. And while their fervency wasn’t always perfect, it served as a contrast to the kings of their northern brethren. Eventually though, following the displacement of Samaria, Judah rather than learn the costly lesson from their brethren to the north, did them one better (or worse) by becoming more wicked. Even though God was faithful to send them prophets to warn them of their error (as He did to Samaria earlier) it was of little effect. Jeremiah issued many warnings, but was met with a popular excuse, “The Temple of the Lord, the Temple of the Lord!” as if having the temple covered their disobedience from the judgment that they earned. It didn’t of course; Nebuchadnezzar served as God’s rod of judgment shortly later.

    I cannot help but think of this Old Testament diorama as a possible parallel to what is happening in the United States now. If one would plug in the two main political parties accordingly, Judah would peradventure represent the republicans and Samaria the democrats. The DNC serves to illustrate the total pagan depravity of Samaria. By contrast, the GOP still has a “semblance” of piety, though nowadays with far less of the fervor that was evident back in say the 80s under Reagan. The Democratic Party may be going full tilt toward abortion, gay marriage and a dangerous stand in regards to Israel, but the Republican leadership is showing inklings of following them in that direction. In many a blogsite that I have read, the consensus seems to be among “conservatives” to cast off the social conservative mantle and go full speed on fiscal concerns. This only puts a band-aid on wound. It does nothing to address the disease. Nevertheless, social cons are shown to be in disfavor. The fact that the standard-bearer of the GOP follows a false religion only enhances the dilemma we find ourselves in. Our choice this election season: a Mormon, or a Marxist. Pick your poison.

    Sad, sickening & sour is the state of affairs in this country (pun intended). I look on & listen in, wondering who in their right mind believes even 10% of the spin. If ever we needed to lean hard in the direction of righteousness, today is that day. I fear, and dare say that it will probably take a major catastrophe for Americans to make the turn you so rightly connect to our hope.

    Regardless of the election’s outcome in November, the shaking will not end there as our great, loving, merciful, holy God continues to summon men to repentance with the promise of eternal peace & the establishment of HIS kingdom. Now there’s a promise we can take to the bank!

    Blessings to you & yours,

    The sad thing is that both the Democrat and Republican parties play for the same team. A vote for one is ultimately a vote for both. Remember it was primarily Republican presidents that gave us the radical left supreme court judges that brought so much depravity into our nation. If there is a pagan god that characterizes the RNC, it is Janus. The Republican party is the two faced party, whereas the Democratic party is just blatantly ungodly. Which is worse? I’m not sure that one can be worse than the other. No matter how you slice it, the political system of our nation is devoted to and serves idols (at least at the national level, I know there are local and state politicians who are actually godly people working for the good of our nation).

    • billrandles says:

      I don’t think they are identical, there truly is a deep divide in this country.Rebublicanism isn’t as totally debased as the Democratic party. I could even conceive of a christian casting a vote for the Republican party, but I don’t think it possible for a true Christian to be a Democrat, because the party platform is pro Death, (Gay rights, Abortion, anti private property, atheistic socialism).The Republican party is the nearest thing to a viable political expression,(In spite of its cowardice, compromise, and utter spite for its evangelical base).
      Having said that, I am not saying the Republicans are all that great, I think Ken got it right in his comments above, America is split as Israel and Judah once were. Israel went blatantly pagan from the beginning and had no good Kings, whereas Judah had the temple, and lagged about 150 years behind Israel when it came to apostasy. By the time of Jeremiah, Judah had actually degenerated into worse apostasy. Only God can save this nation, we are sooooo in trouble! Pray everybody!

      • Jared says:

        Amen, brother. I have a hard time trying to wrestle with the idea of separating the good from the bad in regards to the Republican party, and sometimes feel that the separation can’t be made. However, with that exception, I agree wholeheartedly with you; only God can save!

  4. Ken says:

    One thing that I neglected to mention save only partially was Judah’s excuse regarding her reliance on “the Temple of the Lord.” Republicans, one could say, have a similar crutch, in that they invoke God’s blessing on America. It generally comes at the conclusion of any speech given at their convention. On the surface there’s nothing wrong with this. But recall Judah’s reason for not believing Jeremiah’s warning of impending judgment. Their reasoning was, how could anything befall our Jerusalem? We have “the temple of the Lord.” Mormon GOP candidate Mitt Romney invoked God’s blessing on America at the end of his acceptance speech. One could legitimately ask, to which God do you refer, Sir? Of course you don’t have to bring up the LDS issue to make the point. A political party that is now attempting to divorce itself from issues that God cares deeply about now tries to invoke His blessing? Can you say “Church of Laodicea”?

    • Jared says:

      Thank you, Ken, for adding this comment. I see so many folks driving around with bumper stickers that say, “God bless America!”; but how many stickers have you seen that say, “America bless God!”? It’s all about America and how much we get from God, but how many people think to consider, “What does God get from America”? Is God really blessed by America, is His name held up as Holy and worthy of worship? On a national level, no; His name is more like Santa Claus, He is just some mystical being that we hope will give us more prosperity and ease without demanding anything from us.

    Hi pastor Bill,thanks for always speaking the Truth!!!

  6. Wayne says:

    The apostle Paul’s prophecy in II Timothy 3:1, 13 provides a concise but penetrating description of the kind of world we live in. “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come. . . . But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.” This is a warning especially applicable to us because the world applies sufficient pressure that, if we are lackadaisical, we will allow ourselves to follow Satan’s arrangement of things. The human nature that remains within us finds much “out there” attractive, and true Christians, despite 2,000 years of preaching, still see the overwhelming majority following the broad way that leads to destruction (Matthew 7:13). This creates a great deal of peer pressure.

  7. Wayne says:

    Sadly most people will never permit the truth to interfere with a good story.
    This is why so many are committed to the Great Apostasy which has overrun what might once have been referred to as the christian church.

  8. Wayne says:

    Hello Bill,

    My family and I appreciate your Ministry of the WORD of God and your faithfulness in this time of great apostasy throughout the church in general.

    We are very concerned with the alignment of so-called christian people with Right Wing politics as if it is some how consistent with a christian world view. That is certainly NOT the case and it is ludicrous to suggest that the extreme right wing ideology we are being subjected to in Queensland is related to christianity in any way. The same applies to what that Party has in store for us if they are elected Nationally.

    Our Right Wing leaders are consistently attacking the working and living conditions of people who are required to work for a living.

    We are sick and tired of religious leaders expressing a view which is in favour of these people because of a perception that they have higher moral values than the other side. I have consistently found that the scripture “the heart of man is only evil continually” applies to people on both sides of the political spectrum.and that both sides have a disregard for the Word of God on all levels.

    Consequently our living and working conditions must assume primary importance overall. We are very concerned that we seem to have been deserted by people who call themselves christian even those in authority within the remnant of christians who have identified the apostasy and endeavour to remain faithful to HIS WORD.

    Many seem desperate to have these right wing politicians elected at any cost. They do not seem to care about real life issues which I have addressed in previous posts on this site.

    A woman who inherited Billions of dollars from a mining magnate in Australia has recently suggested that we need to become “more competitive” because Africans are prepared to work for $2.00 a day. Many people have suggested she did nt mean this but this sort of mentality is exactly what these people are leading up to. These same people are suggesting that the mass underway at this time which academics have condemned as do irreparable damage to our economy are necessary because “people have not worked hard enough’” This sort of nonsense puts Dickensian sweat shop conditions firmly in mind.

    Genuine Bible Believing christians really need to stop endorsing either side of politics and focus solely on preaching, teaching and absorbing what the Bible has to say about these last days before the return of the Lord.
