When Good People Do Nothing, Evil Triumphs

13 Aug

When good people do nothing, evil triumphs. Evil, manifesting in sinful men must be opposed. Our Lord actually commands those who are good, not just to avoid evil but actively oppose it.
For example in the parable of the talents, in Mathew 25:18 the Lord Jesus described a man who did next to nothing. When he received his Lord’s money, he “went and dug a hole in the earth, and buried his Lord’s money” When his Lord returned, he returned to the Lord just what he had been given (Matthew 25:25). Now that servant did not actually do anything outright evil, such as stealing the money, but then neither did he do anything good with it as the others who invested it. He basically did nothing and he got nothing much accomplished as a result. Except Jesus said he was a “wicked and slothful servant” (Matthew 25:26).
Matthew 25:29……,”but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath. 30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
The Lord Jesus rebuked the church at Laodicea for doing nothing. “I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked” (Revelation. 3:15-17).
History reveals that those who try and do good seem to clearly outnumber all those who are doing evil, yet those who manifest evil seem to prevail far too many times. There are numerous examples in the Holy Scriptures of how good people allowed evil to overtake them.
The words we hear today like being “tolerant’, are nothing more then the enemies manipulation and mind control methods to get you to agree with evil.
Back when Elijah was here, too many of God’s people kept quite and had allowed the evil of Ahab and Jezebel to prevail throughout the land of Israel. “And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? If the Lord be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word” (1 Kings 18:21). The people’s failure to take a stand against evil and speak up and out about it permitted wicked and evil men to run rampant. The silence of the people still speaks volumes of their indecisiveness and inaction.
Anyone recall how the Lord Jesus told of a traveler who was robbed, beaten and left him half dead. The men who did this were manifesting evil as we see in the world today. But that Levite and priest allowed this evil to continue by doing nothing as they each “passed on by on the other side”. So they did not have to deal with it. (Luke 10:31-32). However there was one traveler a Samaritan, who was willing to take action and do was right in sight of God. (Luke 10:33-36).
Jesus said quite clearly, “He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad” (Matthew 12:30). We as Christian whether we like it or not are in a war against evil and there is no real middle ground, we cant stay neutral like the Swiss try and do. Like that word tolerant, its just a mind control type phrase to make you agree to put up with what is not right. Those who are not vigorously warring against evil are helping evil to triumph. How do you think the concept of traditional marriage lost it footing in this several Christian based nations recently? Was the church manipulated and brow beaten into being tolerant?
When good people do nothing, are they still good? Seems too many people have the erroneous idea that good is merely the absence of doing that which is wrong.
James explained, “Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.” (James 4:17).
1 Peter. 3:11,” Let him eschew (avoid doing) evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it.”
If you recall the eldest of Israel, Reuben, knew his brothers’ had launched a murderous plot against their younger brother Joseph was terribly wrong. He even attempted to deliver Joseph, but as he hesitated and vacillated in the end, and so his jealous and mean spirited brothers sold Joseph into slavery. When Reuben heard what they had done, he realised straightway his failure to do something when he had the opportunity. Instead now he actually helped to bring about this evil as a result. Then instead of repenting and correcting his mistakes, Reuben tries to cover his shame and guilt by agreeing with his brothers to lie to their father about Joseph’s sudden disappearance (Genesis 37:18-35).
Reuben like a lot of good people had “good intentions” and he was not even there at the crime scene when his brothers sold their younger sibling Joseph into slavery.
However, Reuben understood that his failure to help save Joseph made him just as guilty as the rest of his brothers who manifested such evil. That spirit of guilt and shame continued to haunt him over the years (Genesis 42:21-22).
Reuben was just as guilty here as the one who drives the getaway motorcar for the bank robbers.
In Obadiah 1 The prophet gives a stern warning and actually condemned the Edomites for standing by and doing nothing when evil men overtook their brethren, the Jews. When Jerusalem was invaded by the enemies of God, just as it is today, the Edomites “stood on the other side”, watching the slaughter as spectators and did nothing to help.
God said by their failure to act and to help their brethren “even thou wast as one of them” Obadiah 1:11,” In the day that thou stoodest on the other side, in the day that the strangers carried away captive his forces, and foreigners entered into his gates, and cast lots upon Jerusalem, even thou wast as one of them. ”
What do we see happening today, how is it Christians are the only army that shoots itself? Attacking, slandering and misrepresent other Christians. Instead of understanding how to separate that evil that manifests itself in others. Because that is not who they are, rather it is who they became as a results of not understanding who they truly are in Christ. Not understanding His awesome mercy grace and love.
The Apostle Paul warned about such behaviour among those professing to be true born again spirit filled believing Christians, “But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another” (Galatians 5:15).
In other words if you don’t forgive other’s God can not forgive you. If you refuse to forgive and bad mouth others your like a character assassin, or rather here Paul is saying you are a cannibal believer who confirms you are totally backslidden and fallen from grace. So much for that modern message of grace on steroids.
While that sort of conduct is unacceptable as a Christians, what about those “good” people who do nothing? All the ones who stand on the other side and do nothing but watch as their brothers and sisters are being lied about, slandered, slaughtered and devoured. No true born again spirit filled believer can just be an innocent bystanders and spectators. Any failure to act not only allows evil to triumph, but makes that believer just as guilty as the Lord said, its like you were one of them.
We have been give such a powerful weapon of prayer and gifts of the Holy Spirit and we best practice to use them daily.
I am reminded here of Galatians 6:7,” “Be not deceived; God is not mocked; for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap”. If we refuse to do good in the face of evil we are sowing some potentially dangerous seeds. There are some potentially very dark things happening today as we reach the End of the Age, and we need to stay diligent in the Lord. We all have friends and family and know people who do not know Jesus as their saviour yet. We must not give up on them. We must stop hiding behind the rocks like those Israelites did and be more like David and face those Nephilim giants in the name of the Lord. Trusting Christ for the victory.
I am telling you there is no surrendering and bowing down to fear, we need to speak up against all manner of evil and stop being fearful of those mind control methods that want you to be tolerant and politically correct.
According to the prophetic time line Psalm 83 is probably the next thing we shall see happening with the destruction of Damascus.
So many Christians in churches seemed terrified of the future, and so you must conclude no one shared with them that fear is a sin and not just an emotion. Roman 14:23 ….that which is not faith is sin. Because fear is opposite faith.
Even if they don’t know many details, people everywhere are aware that something is very, very wrong in this world. Something is about to happen and it is going to change the world as we have known it. You can feel it in the air because that spirit of fear is tangible and it is working overtime.
How is it that nothing much is said to warn us from most pulpits in churches today? Instead there is this desperate attempt to maintain a sense of normality and to maintain the lie that everything will continue as it is. With a mindset of don’t talk about evil things as it might upset someone or a big tither. I dare say, wouldn’t it at least be a good idea to help assure your congregations that Papa God not only knows all about what is happening here, but that He already forewarned us about it and told us what to expect.
There is this mindset that all the Christians who study prophesy are nothing more then doom and gloomers. In other words, they are such a downer! This must be because those of such erroneous opinions have not studied and read their Bibles like the Bereans did. The Lord said we shall be blessed and comforted when we study His prophesies.
Revelation 1:3,” Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.”
We need to assure the church that God is still in control, however He wont control your thought life, as that you your part. We may not be able control world events, however we can control how we react to them. Although we read that Daniels prayed significantly changed the course of history. (Daniel 9:4-14)
Staying in faith certainly helped save Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in Daniel 3 and I think this is a really good example for us to follow today.
Matthew 10:28,” And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”
The Lord allowed Paul and James and Stephen to be martyred?
What shall happen when someone like a president Obama or Pope of the Vatican announces those inner dimensional demonic entities are actually our outer space brothers travelling millions of light years just to come to help save the world and tell us Jesus was wrong? We must sound the alarm so people understand and know what is coming and have a chance to prepare their hearts and make peace with the Lord Jesus/ Yeshua the Prince of Peace.
Why is there such little coverage in the midst of the greatest persecution the world has ever known? As of now a hundred thousand Christians a year are being martyred, millions displaced and homeless. The American southern border is rather wide open and terrorists from around the world are pouring in, why is that being allowed and tolerated?  Perhaps all part of the Agenda 21 plan to take over with their version of the New World Order? Perhaps they do not understand that Jesus Christ of Nazareth is returning soon to put the world back into order as God decides.  Never give up my friends.
2 Chronicles 7:14,”If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
There is so much going on behind the scenes that for anyone paying attention it is revealing how Biblical prophesy is unfolding before us now at an alarming rate. So keep praying, practice your powerful spiritual gifts, and keep looking up.

I pray the Lord’s supernatural peace, healing, provision and protection cover you always with oceans of Agape love in the almighty name of Jesus/Yeshua!
