Why Evil Has Fallen On God's People

By: Woody Godbey

Judges 6:13, “And Gideon said unto him, Oh my Lord, if the LORD be with us, why then is all this befallen us? and where be all his miracles which our fathers told us of, saying, Did not the LORD bring us up from Egypt? but now the LORD hath forsaken us, and delivered us into the hands of the Midianites.”

Gideon no doubt was a righteous man who didn't understand why evil had befallen God's people. He didn’t understand the oppression of a foreign enemy. As I read this verse I can hear the frustration in Gideon’s words when he asked, where were the miracles of God that he had heard about? Where was the God Who parted the Red Sea? Where was the same God Who fed the Israelites in the Wilderness? Where was the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob?

Gideon was sort of putting the blame on God but what Gideon didn't see was Judges 6:1, saying that “the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord.” Gideon was suffering along with a nation that had turned its back against God. Israel had forgotten God, and so now God was giving Israel over to her enemies, the Midianites.

The same thing is happening today in America. There are faithful Christians who are living for God, soul-winning, helping others, and are concerned about the things of Jesus Christ; and yet they are losing their jobs and homes, suffering from hardships, and it seems as if God has forsaken them. Why are Christians suffering along with the wicked? It is for the same reason that Gideon didn't see the miracles of God, because America has done evil in the sight of the Lord.

You may be committed to pleasing the Lord each day and serving Him faithfully, but you're still going to lose your job because of the Communism that most Americans have embraced, some in ignorance and others in sinful complacency. You heard me right, Communism! Communism is a demonic system of beliefs aimed at empowering government by eliminating all private ownership of property, and in so doing eliminate the personal rights of property owners. Communism is a vehicle by which to obtain world government. The final goal is taking away men's rights and the establishment of government as god over the people, where people are totally dependent upon government to provide all their materialistic needs. Communism forces citizens into subservient slavery. Barack has embraced Cuba, a Communist country who enslaves its people. Socialism is just a baby step form Communism and a majority of young people supported Bernie Sanders is a self professed Socialist.

So, just as Israel suffered at the hand of the Midianites who overthrew them in Gideon's time, so are the liberals overthrowing America because our nation is doing evil in the sight of the Lord. God is no longer blessing this mess in America. Judges 6:1, “And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD: and the LORD delivered them into the hand of Midian seven years.”

No matter how faithful a person may be to obey the Scriptures, they're still going to suffer because of the wicked nation in which we live. The United States is going into tyranny, oppression, and the bondage of a Police State. This is the reason Barack, Hillary and the demonic-rats want our guns. Keep this in mind when you see the Midianites taking away your freedoms and oppressing you. America has done evil in the sight of the Lord.

God used Gideon and 312 men who stopped the oppression by defeating the enemy. May the Lord raise another Gideonite army to defeat a liberal, socialist, communist regime!
