The Day after Tomorrow Will Be Better, 2

Continued from "The Day after Tomorrow Will Be Better"

Once when Alex and I were driving through the suburbs of Modrice, a group of young German hoodlums about fifteen years old threw stones at us. Our car windows were open, but fortunately,we were able to duck. A policeman was on the corner and Alex stopped the car immediately to ask him to arrest the boys.

The officer explained that it was impossible because Czech police were not permitted to arrest German-speaking citizens. That was disturbing. We were in our own country, and yet a minority siding with our professed enemy seemed to be gaining the upper hand. The incident upset us profoundly. (Zdena Kapral, Tomorrow Will  Be  Better, p. 43)

The fruit of thy land, and all thy labours, shall a nation which thou knowest not eat up; and thou shalt be only oppressed and crushed alway. (Deuteronomy 28:33)

Under the Mosaic Covenant, God told His people that unfaithfulness to Him would result in subjugation to aliens, even within their own land. Did they ever give heed? 

Have we?

If you have followed the news these last few weeks, you know that in the southernmost regions, our own ATF has deliberately allowed large numbers of firearms to be shipped south of the border to the drug cartels. Our leaders, no doubt will note the increased firepower and call for greater restrictions on gun ownership among the citizens.

You may have also read, in addition, that bureacrats have pretty much disallowed the arrest of those crossing the border illegally. But don't you try to take a day trip into Canada and expect to return to your homeland without a passport. If your papers are not in order, you could end up in the pokey for an indeterminate amount of time.

In the northernmost regions (i.e., Michigan), Muslims have assaulted Christian evangelists distributing Gospel literature. When the police arrived, they arrested the Christians.

Is God trying to tell us something? If so, I don't think it has anything to do with voting Republican -- even "Tea-Party Republican" -- in 2012.

The answer to our problems does not lie in political elections or political revolution. It lies in finding where we have strayed -- in our personal, family and church lives -- and then repenting and getting on board with God's objectives and agenda as laid down in Scripture.

. . . or as an alternative we could all learn Spanish and Arabic and get used to bowing and scraping to bureacrats and aliens.
