Oh My Gideons!
Prophecy - Signs
Thursday, April 14, 2016
J.L. Robb

Gideon appears in the Book of Judges, Chapters 6-8. One day God chose Gideon to free the people of Israel and condemn their idolatry. Gideon questioned God, asking for three signs or miracles:

In the first miracle, an angel would appear and cause fire to burst forth from a rock. Then two miracles concerning his fleece, one exactly opposite of the other. They all three happened, just as Gideon requested.

Gideon destroyed the idols and alters to Baal, rescuing the Israelites. They pleaded with Gideon to be their king; but he refused, saying that God was their King. Finally he died from old age, and the Israelites once again returned to their idols of old.

When I graduated from North Carolina State University in 1973, I had a degree in zoology and four years of experience as a Navy Hospital Corpsman. My plan was to go to med school. Unfortunately, I was affirmative actioned.

Instead of reapplying I began a career that led me here. I was disappointed that a medical school would let someone with less qualifications and grades into medical school based solely on the color of one’s skin, and this was directly against the teachings of Martin Luther King, Jr.:

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” Martin Luther King, Jr.

This is my first memory of political correctness, but it has only gotten worse since then. As a kid I was told and taught that going to college was not a right unless I had the grades to get there and stay there. You had to work. Not anymore.

Over the past few years, lawsuits have been filed by students who were denied admission based on skin color. I am sure that soon schools’ diversity obsession will begin to consider other factors for admission, like sexual orientation. I am sure a certain percentage will need to be of the LGBT persuasion, maybe save one percent for the pedophile community. And don’t forget the serial adulterers. Political correctness.

When I had surgery last summer, I found myself wondering if the surgeon had made it to Emory on qualifications or on ethnicity. He was from India. If you are flying from New York to Seattle, do you ever consider that the pilot may be the pilot because of ethnicity rather than ability? Political correctness.

So, with no Medical School document in hand, I started down a different highway of life and entered the medical equipment sales field. I travelled extensively, often flying out of Raleigh Sunday night and returning on Friday. I stayed in lots of hotels, some very nice and some, not. But one thing the hotels had in common was the Gideons Bible. If there was nothing to read, there was always Gideons.

Not anymore. It’s not politically correct.

I read last week that climate-change deniers should be prosecuted. From Breitbart.com, March 10, 2016:

The US Department of Justice has been considering whether people should be prosecuted for the offense of climate change denial.

“This matter has been discussed. We have received information about it and have referred it to the FBI to consider whether or not it meets the criteria for which we could take action on,” said Attorney General Loretta Lynch, responding to a question from green activist Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) at a Senate Judiciary Hearing.

I’ve never met anyone yet who denied that the climate changes. There have never been two years where the climate did not change. The point that really ticks off the CC bandwagon is the denial that the climate is changing because of people, rather than the sun, Jetstream and the numerous underwater volcanos that are erupting at this moment. Climate is warming because of SUVs and hairspray, they say.

I think a lot of climate-changephiliacs probably use hairspray, air conditioning, electricity and automobiles but seem to think an electric car pollutes nothing. The batteries recharge magically on their own with no help from the power company. Political correctness.

Soon it seems, based on the way things are headed, we will be joined in one of our most private moments in the bathroom by someone of the opposite sex. If a man thinks he is a woman, then he is. Political correctness.

Is political correctness correct to God?

I cannot speak for God; but according to the Bible, God’s Text Book, no. In almost every instance, what we have deemed as politically correct goes directly against the teachings of God, spelled out in the Old and the New Testaments.

Matthew plainly shows what God would think of affirmative action programs that take from the achievers in order to be politically correct.

Jesus is speaking:

“Again, it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted his wealth to them. To one he gave five bags of gold, to another two bags, and to another one bag, each according to his ability. Then he went on his journey. The man who had received five bags of gold went at once and put his money to work and gained five bags more. So also, the one with two bags of gold gained two more. But the man who had received one bag went off, dug a hole in the ground and hid his master’s money.

“After a long time the master of those servants returned and settled accounts with them. The man who had received five bags of gold brought the other five. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘you entrusted me with five bags of gold. See, I have gained five more.’

“His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’

“The man with two bags of gold also came. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘you entrusted me with two bags of gold; see, I have gained two more.’

“His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’

“Then the man who had received one bag of gold came. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘I knew that you are a hard man, harvesting where you have not sown and gathering where you have not scattered seed. So I was afraid and went out and hid your gold in the ground. See, here is what belongs to you.’

“His master replied, ‘You wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered seed? Well then, you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest.

“‘So take the bag of gold from him and give it to the one who has ten bags. For whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them. And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’ Matthew 25:14-30 NIV

No affirmative action here. The message is clearly to think and work hard; and you will achieve.

God also spoke of global warming that would occur in the Last Days:

The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and the sun was allowed to scorch people with fire. They were seared by the intense heat and they cursed the name of God, who had control over these plagues, but they refused to repent and glorify him. Revelation 16:8-9 NIV

 Therefore a curse consumes the earth; its people must bear their guilt. Therefore earth’s inhabitants are burned up, and very few are left. Isaiah 24:6 NIV

And especially rough seas:

"There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea.” Luke 21:25 NIV 

There are plenty of other signs concerning climate change that are spelled out in Revelation and Isaiah that pertain to the weather in the end times. It also says that no matter how bad the weather gets, man will only become angrier at God. We will not repent or apologize to the Almighty, so everything gets worse. 

It is doubtful that a nation founded on Christian and Jewish principles that has slidden so far into a quagmire of decadence and narcissism since the rebirth of Israel in 1948 will escape judgment. The United States has become Nineveh and Sodom.

I am not anticipating that we, as a society, will stand up against the apostasy that is happening before our eyes. It is doubtful that Gideons Bibles will be restored to the Glory of the past. We’re just having too much fun.

Next month I plan to become a Gideons.
