“The LORD sent Nathan to David” (2 Sam 12:1).
There are times when evil must be confronted. When God judges a situation He often uses His servants as vessels for communicating to the guilty party. Such was the case with David who tried to conceal his sin of sleeping with Bathsheba and then orchestrating a cover-up plot that led to her husband being intentionally setup to be killed on the battlefield. It was a wicked deed that became the most significant black mark upon David’s life.
There are times in the workplace where God may want to use you to be the instrument of God to bring righteousness to a situation. Sherron Watkins was a finance president at Enron, the now famous Houston-based energy company that went bankrupt because of financial fraud by top level executives. By the summer of 2001, Sherron had become suspicious of her company’s accounting practices.
Watkins struggled with what she was to do when she discovered what was going on. She thought she might lose her job if she confronted other top level managers. Yet, if she did not do something, it could impact the entire company and its employees. Sherron was a Christian and knew God was calling her to do something.
At first, she decided to use constructive ways to bring the problem to her superiors. Eventually, she met with CEO, Kenneth Lay and outlined the elaborate accounting hoax that she believed was going on in the company. She was ignored. Months later the company collapsed when the problems came to light and Lay was convicted on 10 counts of conspiracy.
Sherron Watkins served as a modern-day Esther in the corporate world to expose a scandal that would destroy a company. She was recognized as Time Magazine’s “Person of the Year” in 2002 for her role in exposing the scandal.
Are you willing to be the instrument of God, if necessary, to expose unrighteousness?
“In the first place, it is to be remembered, that the general government is not to be charged with the whole power of making and administering laws. Its jurisdiction is limited to certain enumerated objects, which concern all the members of the republic, but which are not to be attained by the separate provisions of any.”
–James Madison, Federalist Paper XIV, 1787
“[T]he unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people.” –Tench Coxe
WOW…JUDGE JEANINE SOCKS IT TO PRESIDENT OBAMA!!!
“The first order of government is the protection of its citizens.”
“What is unbelievable is how reckless this administration has been in their release of dangerous criminals into our streets. The White House says they are low risk non-criminal detainees. Jay, (Carney) if they are low risk, non-criminal detainees, why are they in custody in the first place? Where are their lawyers? Where are the immigration rights activists? The truth? Somebody is lying! They wouldn’t be in custody if they weren’t considered dangerous. They are the worst of the worst and the Obama administration is letting them walk among us.”

Brakes did not work?
A WTH moment in Norway…

Another defenseless victim?
No outcry….Nothing but chirp…chirp…chirp from those whom would disarm us..
“The Huffington Post has come out with a story that says ‘Adam Carolla to Gavin Newsom: ‘What’s wrong with blacks and Latinos?’’” Carolla said. “That’s not what I said to Gavin Newsom. I didn’t bring up blacks and Latinos. He brought up blacks and Latinos. But let me take this moment to now talk to all the pussies that are out there trying to stir things up and turn me into a racist. I got news for you: Me saying parents should stick around and raise the children – me saying families and cultures should focus on education — is not radical or revolutionary. It’s the fucking truth.”
Such as the ‘Ninja’ Angel in the first one and that Samson had red hair and David selected ‘5 smooth stones’ from a stream before taking out Goliath…
