DO NOT Trust Man

"Cursed is the one who trusts in man, who draws strength from mere flesh" (Jeremiah 17:5).

"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths" (Proverbs 3:5-6).

Now that we know the world is doomed...

Let us be reminded, the condition at large is not just one man's or one company's fault.

We need to remove our minds from the politics of the world (worry) and place them into and onto the task of spreading the Gospel of Christ (hope).

It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. (Psalm 118:8)

The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe. (Proverbs 29:25)

Thus saith the Lord; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord. For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited. Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is. (Jeremiah 17:5-7)

It is good to share the truth about the fall of the world (as a warning), and it is good to pray for The Lord's Kingdom to come (as the only real remedy). However, to focus on one man as the blame is an error that creates division. Let us promote unity in the body of Christ. We only have one Savior, only one who we can trust - The Lord Jesus. Let us pray for the lost to be found (even those known as "President", and "CEO", and "World Leader").

God is good... He does not create people to do evil. Spiritual hosts of wickedness are doomed for destruction, by their own choosing, not by God's.

It is the Lord's will that none should perish (2 Peter 3:9).

We have the power and great responsibility to pray for all with the love of Christ to be saved. May the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ change the hearts of all, protect us, and deliver us - from all forms of evil.
