Corruption: Front and Center


It has been reported in New York City in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, that a power crew from Alabama was turned away by the unionized power companies of that city, because the Alabama crew was not unionized. Does this make sense? Here are people coming to the aid of thousands, if not millions of people in need of power, and they are turned away because of a political position the unions have taken. This is not only ridiculous; it is an extreme example of corruption.

My father worked for Alabama Power Company and drove to other places in the country to restore power to people after large-scale disasters. He was never turned away when he was walking the earth, but things have changed dramatically since then. This country has become so polarized; it absolutely cannot continue to stand. “Every kingdom (nation) divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand.” (Matthew 12:25) Choosing to turn away this crew because it was not unionized is the epitome of selfishness. They are so concerned about how this episode can harm them, they ignore the thousands or millions of people who are in immediate need in New York City today. What takes priority? Taking care of people in immediate need or taking some action that is perceived to be necessary to protect the union. The union was not and is not going to collapse because non-union members have come to help people in New York City get their power restored. By their actions, people have had to wait longer than necessary for some semblance of normality to come back into their lives.

2 Timothy 3:1-5, 8, 9 says, “Know this: in the last days, perilous times shall come. For men will be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy…despisers of those that are good…lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof…always learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth…These men resist the truth and have corrupt minds, completely void of judgment concerning the faith. They shall proceed no further: because their folly shall be manifest to all men.” God says in the last days when men become like this, he will not allow it to go on any further. That is where we are today in this country. This union episode is a microcosm of what is going on in this nation as a whole. We are void of judgment concerning the things of God, and God has begun his judgment on us.

2 Peter 2:9-10, 12 says, “The Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust to the day of judgment to be punished: But mainly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness…as natural brute beasts; made to be taken and destroyed speak evil of the things they do not understand; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption.” God is giving us a choice: turn back to him or continue doing or allowing the same things that have been going on in this country the last several decades. Choose the first and this country will be saved from judgment. Choose to ignore this warning and God’s judgment on this country will finish the work that has already begun to destroy us. Which one do you think is the wiser choice?

Jesus said, “Every good tree brings forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit; neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that brings not forth good fruit is hewn down and cast into the fire. Wherefore, by their fruits you shall know them.” We can see the fruits of these unions in New York City . We can see the fruits of other unions in other cities and states across the country. They surround people’s homes and frighten their children. They storm into state houses and trash the places they occupy. Does anyone think this pleases God? This is done by people who have hate in their heart. This is done by people who have rejected God in their life and will face punishment if they do not repent. This is where we are in this country today. This is what happens in a country that turns its back on God. This is what results when prayer is removed from our schools. We have sown the wind and are reaping the whirlwind. Hurricane Sandy was a giant whirlwind. More disasters are coming. God has left us to reap the seeds we have sown for our own destruction; and there is no turning back of his judgment on us unless this country repents.
