For it is written, “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.” 1 Corinthians 1: 19
This is the age of panic. Our entire ruling class–politicians, banks, big corporations, social media platforms, Hollywood, teachers’ unions and college professors–is stampeding to grovel before Only Black Lives Matter. They’re wiping out our culture: no more Aunt Jemima, no more Eskimo pies, no more Theodore Roosevelt statue at the American Museum of Natural History, no more history… One wonders if they mean to ban everything.
For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble are called… (v. 26).
There’s none of them left on our side, they’ve all rushed over to the Far Left side of the boat–a good way to make it capsize. The wise, the mighty, the noble; the rich and famous, the influential: they compete with each other to see who can be the most obsequious, the most servile, the most woke.
But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; and base things of the world, and things which are despised hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: that no flesh should glory in his presence. (verses 27-29)
So there’s no one left on our side but us. The little people, the nobodies, the deplorables. The ones they laugh at when they hunker down in Davos with overpriced cocktails. Whose only function is to pay taxes and do what we’re told.
It is well within God’s power and authority to bring this era to a close, to bring down the curtain with a crash; and when He does, it will be in such a way that no one will be able to attribute it to anyone or anything but Him. The Lord our God, strong to save.
They call the preaching of the gospel foolishness. They’d like to stamp it out.
Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. (v. 25)
It’s going to be a bad time for those who have chosen the wrong side. Their visitation will not be infinitely postponed.
