Folly Is Set In Great Dignity

January 12

“There is an evil I have seen under the sun,
as an error proceeding from the ruler:
FOLLY IS SET IN GREAT DIGNITY…”
Ecclesiastes 10:5-6

It’s a shock when one grows up and discovers that the experts, the highly educated, the men in power –  are fools. It is SUCH a bewilderment, because we were brought up to believe in great men, the rulers and governors are always right, apple pie in the sky…

Yes, it truly is a bewilderment to see fools given great dignity. How incredible when Yasser Arafat was given the Nobel Peace Prize; and later when Barak Obama received the Nobel Peace Prize. It forever squelched any glassy-eyed and childish fantasy we may have had about the honor due to what the world considers the great men. These men were anything but great, except in the halls of hell.

Turn on your tv and listen to the statements made by the wise and pompous talking heads, the media, the experts, and again, let go of the hero worship and realize that the emperors have no clothes. Folly has been set in dignity.

That will all change one day. The first shall be last and the last first, and righteousness and truth and wisdom will reign, when he who IS truth returns to set up his long-awaited Kingdom on this sorry earth.

Even so, COME Lord Jesus!
