“This is what the wicked are like— always free of care, they go on amassing wealth” (Psalm 73:12 NIV).
Thank God for His Word that keeps us from being amazed or astonished at the things that occur in the land! What we are seeing right now–at the hands of “greedy” politicians–has already been foretold. When reading the first eleven first verses of this Psalm, it would appear to be prophetic in nature because we can “see” it coming to pass right now!
Notwithstanding my refusal to claim allegiaince with one political party over another, I do see politicians as the enemy of the poor and needy; especially those Republicans who profess to be Christians and yet do not do the things we have been commanded to do.
First, they attempt to starve those who already have limited resources by cutting their ability to eat.
Then, the very people who need healthcare–preventive care–to keep down hospital costs, are being denied the right to have access to it because of greedy politicians to want to sustain their connection to those in the insurance industry who have aligned themselves–financially–with them. Their actions–holding America hostage–in order to maintain their supporters borders being anti-Christ. They need to do the job for which they have been elected–keep government moving in the right direction and not standing stagnant, stinking.
For those who affiliate themselves with the “tea party” and claim to be Christians–be very careful of mocking God! For truly, it is He you mock when you refuse to take actions that would support the poor and needy above your own concerns of amassing wealth. You, as a party, are not supporting the needs of all people, but your private agenda and God will deal quite thoroughly with you–in just a matter of time. History has a tendency to repeat itself and those who oppose God by not doing what He says, have reaped the consequences for their actions. The Tea Party has demonstrated they have no relationship with God, but with foolish religious ideology that makes them blinded and callous. They (TP) have spent so much time hating a president simply because of his skin color they have forgotten to address the needs of all people: job development, tax reform, climate control, etc. If people had jobs–earning income–they would pay taxes and increase tax revenues. This is where the real effort should lie–not in creating obstacles for those who really care about all the people.
O God, how long must we tolerate those who are indifferent to Your people–all of us? How long will it be before You reveal Yourself to them in ways they can understand–diminishing their wealth and the attention they so love? How long Lord, will the people have to suffer the indignities of those who are so arrogant and prideful that they forget–whatever they sow, they shall reap? How long Lord will it be before You leave them powerless and stunned at their loss because they refuse to consider all people? How long Lord? How long?
