A Biblical Perspective On This Absolutely Critical Moment In American History

So many people out there feel that we have reached a key moment in the history of the United States.  After reading what I had to say about the very unusual full moon that we just witnessed on 12/12, Chelle Wagner sent me an email with her thoughts and said that I could share it with all of you.  I think that many of you are really going to enjoy what she has to say…

HI Michael,

I read your blog everyday.  Yesterday the article on the last full moon of the decade on 12/12 at 12:12 really struck a cord with me.  After praying Yah directed me to Psalm 82.  I have been pondering this psalm.  As it deals with unjust Judiciary decisions in the earth I find it particularly intriguing as today the debates on the impeachment proceedings in the House judiciary are set to be voted upon.

Here is the Psalm with a few insights taken from the NLT version:

Rescue the Weak and Needy

Psa 82:1  A psalm of Asaph. God presides over heaven’s court; he pronounces judgment on the heavenly beings: 

Psa 82:2  “How long will you hand down unjust decisions by favoring the wicked? Interlude 

Psa 82:3  “Give justice to the poor and the orphan; uphold the rights of the oppressed and the destitute. 

Psa 82:4  Rescue the poor and helpless; deliver them from the grasp of evil people. 

Psa 82:5  But these oppressors know nothing; they are so ignorant! They wander about in darkness, while the whole world is shaken to the core. 

Psa 82:6  I say, ‘You are gods; you are all children of the Most High. 

Psa 82:7  But you will die like mere mortals and fall like every other ruler.’” 

Psa 82:8  Rise up, O God, and judge the earth, for all the nations belong to you. 

Vs 1 – We know God appoints leadership.  He creates each one of us with gifts and talents according to His good pleasure.  These gifts and talents have nothing to do with character they are gifts what we do with them determines our character.  Right now we have many leaders making decisions that will affect the entire world.  It is a heavy responsibility and a good leader subjects themselves to God’s leadership.  However, when humans adopt a guiding light that feeds their ego and hunger for power those humans are not making righteous decisions.  God is not mocked whether we acknowledge His lordship in our lives or not He knows all, He sees all, He hears all.  He is watching and presiding over a much higher court than the House Judiciary in United States of America.  And if He has had his fill of injustice He will step in with His own Judgements.

Vs 2–  El Elyon (God most high) is literally asking those in leadership….”HOW LONG WILL YOU ACT UNJUSTLY?”

Vs 3 – Justice is not charity.  Here the psalmist is counseling the judges to do their job!  He doesn’t want favoritism for the poor because they are poor, neither does He want favoritism to the powerful because of their power.  He is saying if you have been trusted as a judge in the earth then behave like a judge and make decisions based on the facts and merits of the case before you.

Vs 4 – To be a judge is to be in a position of trusted authority.  IF you vote by fear of reproach from other powerful leaders rather than by conviction of responsibility to your office the poor and needy will not have their cause upheld and the Lord of the Hosts of Heavens Armies will step in to defend their cause.  You will answer for not doing your job justly.

Vs 5 – I find it very interesting that God speaks to us through the signs in the sun and moon and the stars.  Midnight is literally the darkest hour of the night.  The moon is a reflection of the light of the sun. Believers don’t produce their own light but our light comes from the SON of God Yahusha.   I am encouraged that during the darkest winter hour the moon was at it brightest.  I believe this is a call to the remnant of the house of Yah to remember that we are here to shine.  The darker things become because of unrighteous judgements by men the brighter the remnant will shine.  We are witnessing leaders/judges who have lost all ability to distinguish right from wrong – they have no understanding, and have become blind guides through corruption and bribery in their thirst for power.  They are literally operating in DARKNESS.  God’s warning is that when we see this happening the result will be that the WHOLE EARTH will be SHAKEN TO THE CORE.  Should we be paying more attention to the San Andres Fault Line?  I went through a personal life shaking event the worst of which played out between the Feast of Succot 2016 (September) and Succot 2017.  This event cost my home, health and most of my possessions with radical lifestyle changes.  During the middle of this I cried out to God “I can’t take this anymore.”  He directed me to Jeremiah chapter 12 – yes another 12.

Jeremiah is complaining to God about how the injustice being done in the land is exhausting him.  God responds:

NLT version

Jer 12:5  “If racing against mere men makes you tired, how will you race against horses? If you stumble and fall on open ground, what will you do in the thickets near the Jordan? 

I knew immediately that the hardship we were going through was being done out of love for training purposes because I know in my gut that things are about to get very difficult in this land.  The late David Wilkerson warned that when this time period arrived we would experience the Apostate Church because people would be so offended with God.  I find the rest of Jeremiah 12 to be an extremely timely message for believers today:

Jer 12:6  Even your brothers, members of your own family, have turned against you. They plot and raise complaints against you. Do not trust them, no matter how pleasantly they speak. 

Jer 12:7  “I have abandoned my people, my special possession. I have surrendered my dearest ones to their enemies. 

Jer 12:8  My chosen people have roared at me like a lion of the forest, so I have treated them with contempt. 

Jer 12:9  My chosen people act like speckled vultures, but they themselves are surrounded by vultures. Bring on the wild animals to pick their corpses clean! 

Jer 12:10  “Many rulers have ravaged my vineyard, trampling down the vines and turning all its beauty into a barren wilderness. 

Jer 12:11  They have made it an empty wasteland; I hear its mournful cry. The whole land is desolate, and no one even cares. 

Jer 12:12  On all the bare hilltops, destroying armies can be seen. The sword of the LORD devours people from one end of the nation to the other. No one will escape! 

Jer 12:13  My people have planted wheat but are harvesting thorns. They have worn themselves out, but it has done them no good. They will harvest a crop of shame because of the fierce anger of the LORD.” 

Jer 12:14  Now this is what the LORD says: “I will uproot from their land all the evil nations reaching out for the possession I gave my people Israel. And I will uproot Judah from among them. 

Jer 12:15  But afterward I will return and have compassion on all of them. I will bring them home to their own lands again, each nation to its own possession. 

Jer 12:16  And if these nations truly learn the ways of my people, and if they learn to swear by my name, saying, ‘As surely as the LORD lives’ (just as they taught my people to swear by the name of Baal), then they will be given a place among my people. 

Jer 12:17  But any nation who refuses to obey me will be uprooted and destroyed. I, the LORD, have spoken!”

Vs 6 – God is again calling out to the leaders who will listen…”Don’t you get it?  I gave you this position of authority and I desire you to render righteous judgments in My name. “  Here is what He is saying to those who have ears to hear NLT version:

Joh 3:16  “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. 

Joh 3:17  God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him. 

Joh 3:18  “There is no judgment against anyone who believes in him. But anyone who does not believe in him has already been judged for not believing in God’s one and only Son. 

Joh 3:19  And the judgment is based on this fact: God’s light came into the world, but people loved the darkness more than the light, for their actions were evil. 

Joh 3:20  All who do evil hate the light and refuse to go near it for fear their sins will be exposed. 

Joh 3:21  But those who do what is right come to the light so others can see that they are doing what God wants.” 

Why is “I am sorry” the hardest thing in the world to say?  Repentance is the only way to make things right with our Creator.  And it is as simple as could be explained to any three year old.  Learn to say I am sorry and then change course and walk in a path of righteousness.  The freedom and joy we  experience from this is true liberty.

Vs 7 – The wonderful part of belonging to God’s family is that because of the death, burial and resurrection of the Messiah death has lost its sting.  The believer has the assurance that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.  This is not so for those who choose to live in the wicked path.  This life is the only part of heaven they will ever know.  Death hell and the an eternity of agony is all that awaits the wicked who refuse to repent, as it is for the angels who left their first estate and choose to follow lucifer and his rebellion against Yah.

Vs 8 – this is the prayer of the righteous.  We are assured that the Judge of All the Earth in all His Glory will Arise and judge with righteous judgement.
