Wicked People In High Places
We have all seen in the past few years the rising of wicked people in high places. This is nothing new under the sun and we will see it happening more in the near future. Our political leaders have become corrupt and self-centered only looking out for themselves forgetting the people that they serve. Evil has found it's way into the hearts of the politicians who have lost their ability to discern the truth between right from wrong. They care only about the wealthy and how they can benefit from the poor. The rich man is wise in his own eyes, But the poor who has understanding sees through him. (Proverbs 28:11). You can't fool the common man, God watches out for them.
The wicked devise ways to take advantage of common man with their lies and promises. Woe to them that devise iniquity, and work evil upon their beds! when the morning is light, they practice it, because it is in the power of their hand. (Micah 2:1). This is a warning to the wicked people. The scammers and rip-off artist who lie awake at night thinking up evil plans to carry out the next day. (This covers a very broad range of people in today's world and goes deep into politicians and the courts).
And moreover I saw under the sun the place of judgment, that wickedness was there; and the place of righteousness, that iniquity was there. (Ecclesiastes 3:16). Evil corruption in the courts and churches today. But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats? (James 2:6). You despise the poor man, and it is usually the rich man that will bring you to court, drag you down, or rip you off. (Money brings the worse out in most people). Crooked because of wickedness. God does not judge by precedent like a normal judge would, God judges by His laws. It doesn't stop there, it continues in the house of God. (There is corruption in the church itself because of greed and perversion).
Today's religious leaders have been the most disappointing of all people in high places. Many of them sucked into supporting wicked political leaders and deceivers of the world. These religious leaders are supposed to be a group of God fearing Christians smart enough to know when something isn't right. (Discerners of truth; not followers of deception and lies). A true Christian, Priest, Rabi, or Evangelical is to promote the good news about God to the people. The Heavenly Father would have nothing to do with this type of non-sense, corruption and greed going on in the Christian community today. While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage. (2 Peter 2:19). They promise you freedom, but they are slaves to sin and corruption themselves. Never let anyone put you into spiritual bondage. The truth of God's Word will always set you free. Beware of the tricks of Satan that he uses through pulpits. If you can't find a church that teaches all truth without tradition, study Gods word on your own. You don't need them, God gave you a brain, use it. "Don't let some blowhard lead you astray."
The apostle Paul as Jesus would warn us about these people in high places during the end times. For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.(2 Corinthians 11:13). These people are false teachers who disguise themselves as apostles of Christ. (Matthew 24, Mark 13). And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. (2 Corinthians 11:14). Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. (Revelation 12:9, 13:11, II Thessalonians 2:1-13). Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works. (2 Corinthians 11:15). It is no wonder that his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. You know how good Satan is at doing impressions of God, so Satan's servants are also very good at impersonating God's servants. They look and sound so holy. (Matthew 7:15), "Their day is coming in the end."
Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? (Matthew 7:22). At judgment, many will say they are of Christ, but God did not send these false teachers. And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. (Matthew 7:23). God will reject and expose them for their evil deeds (breakers of His law), and false teachings. (Luke 13:27). Do we have wicked people in high places? Yes, unfortunately we do, and will continue to have in the future to come. Why? Again the apostle Paul as Jesus tells us what we are up against in the end times. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places (Ephesians 6:12). We are not fighting against people made of flesh and blood, but against the evil rulers of the unseen world. Mighty satanic beings and great evil princes of darkness who rule this world; and against huge numbers of wicked spirits in the spirit world. (That is what makes people go bad). The only thing we can do is to make sure the right people are put in high places, "by the people for the people." True discerners of truth is what we need in the world today in order to make it a better place for the future of tomorrow.
