Crisis: Danger or Opportunity
President John F. Kennedy once stated, “The Chinese use two brush strokes to write the word ‘crisis.’ One brush stroke stands for danger; the other for opportunity. In a crisis, be aware of the danger – but recognize the opportunity.”
“The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer.” — Barack Hussein Obama.
The first: danger. We see America going down the road she knows not, and a president that knows nothing of her except to attack her foundation and heritage at every turn. We can clearly see, like it or not, that America is under God’s judgments.
“The LORD shall bring thee, and thy king which thou shalt set over thee, unto a nation which neither thou nor thy fathers have known…” (Deuteronomy 28:36)
- March 3, 2013: The New York Times reports that John Kerry announced $250 million in U.S. aid for Egypt… an effort by Mr. Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood movement to dominate Egyptian politics.
- July 26, 2013: Obama salutes Muslim Americans and hosts a Ramadan dinner at the White House.
- Aug. 7, 2013: The U.S. House of Representatives opens with a Muslim imam’s prayer.
Deuteronomy 28:43, 49-50 says:
“The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low. The LORD shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flieth; a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand; a nation of fierce countenance, which shall not regard the person of the old, nor shew favour to the young. …”
In the highly offensive and disturbing video below, a group of Chechen terrorists, known to be Muslims, killed six Russian soldiers who withstood their attack until surrendering. They were told they would be under POW status, but instead were brutally tortured and executed.
In America, the following is a highly offensive video of Obama’s war on women, while he falsely parades around as a champion of “equal rights.”
But what happens to a people who obey God’s laws, judgments and statutes (Ezekiel 44:24)? They experience the blessings of God by turning crisis (danger) into opportunity, an opportunity to win our freedoms as in times past.
“The Lord shall cause they enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face; they shall come out against thee one way and flee before thee seven ways.” (Deuteronomy 28:7)
America and her church need to stand up and reclaim what is rightfully hers. If foreigners, Muslims in this particular case, are going to migrate into America, the church should look at this as an opportunity to win these people to Jesus Christ (Mark 16:15). And if the church responds to God’s Commandments, it will succeed, setting all in awe of not only our God first and foremost, but also setting this administration in a complete state of defeat – a position in which it would not have dreamed to be.
So, America, how are you going to respond to this administration? Are you going to look at the crisis we are facing as danger or an opportunity to take your country back?
When reflecting upon the 237 years of our republic, one has to ask himself how less than three percent of the population established this country along with 56 signers who laid down their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honors to establish this “city set on a hill” called America. Ever heard of the Black-robed Regiment? They are the most feared preachers of the Gospel in the world.
