We Americans are a peace loving people; we don’t envy our neighbours their land or their wealth. We make no wars of conquest, so we find it hard to believe that others would attack us. We become involved in defensive wars because we suffer so much wrong without resistance that our long patience is mistaken for cowardice. Our enemies, both in other lands and within our own nation, take advantage of this. They know they can always lead us into traps by pretending they want peace. Russia is hard at this old trick right now, in the United Nations, vigorously helped by the so-called neutral nations. How can there be any neutrality between good and evil? Yahshua said he who is not for Me is against Me.
Most of our churches are to blame for our failure to recognize this devil’s trap for what it is, for it is clearly stated in the Bible, that book they so seldom read to you in church. As for the United Nations, that palace of strangers cursed by Yahweh, the prophets exposed their talk of peace 2,500 years ago. Psalm 28:3 calls them, “The workers of iniquity, which speak peace to their neighbours, but mischief is in their hearts”. Jeremiah 9:8 says, “Their tongue is an arrow shot out; it speaketh deceit: one speaketh peaceably to his neighbour with his mouth, but in his heart he lyeth in ambush”.
