Them



What about them?
They’re just filled with hate.
They won’t talk or debate.
They just want to dominate?

What about them?
They’re destroying our stuff.
They’re trying to call our bluff.
Enough is enough!

What about them?
They want to resist.
And they just persist.
What’s the answer to this?

What about them?
They think that they’re right.
They harass just for spite.
They just want to fight.

What about them?
You see what they do?
Pointing fingers at who?
They’re staging a coup!

What about them?
Power makes them blind.
They don’t care to be kind.
No peace shall they find.

What about them?
They whisper and talk.
They don’t walk the walk.
Bodies outlined in chalk.

What about them?
They don’t know how to love.
They just push and shove.
How can they rise above?

What about them?
What more can be said?
I’m tired of seeing red.
This continued bloodshed.

Reading this, you may have been trying to find out who’s identified as “Them”. You may assume that you know. You may have tried to connect recent events and see whose SIDE this speaks about. You may assume that you know. Most times its easy to point the finger at the evil that’s causing problems. It’s easy to establish where the hate comes from, and when the source is identified, the solution is justified.
Fact is, this is an idea for a discussion that could've happened in Heaven just before the decision was made to flood the earth, saving Noah’s family only. Yep, you guessed it - Them is all of us. (read it again)

Here’s The Word;

Genesis 6:5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

Being born in sin, or as I’ve heard it better explained – born with a Selfish, Independent Nature (SIN), we all have the capacity and propensity to seek our own: Our own way, our own promotion, our own means to an end. However, none of these pursuits, even when noble, justifiable or simply excusable by man's standards, work the righteousness of God.

Proverbs 16:25 There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

John 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

When we’re honest with ourselves and each other, humility is not something where we think less of ourselves. Its where we think honestly and rightly of ourselves. We’re not made of much and what we are naturally made of has no problem seeking selfish means to selfish ends.

Some of us, who were once them, have been awakened. That gift of humility by God's grace is what drove us to seek the right help. And God was there. Now, we have a responsibility – not to save the world, that part has already been done. Our part is to preach Christ. Sometimes this seems like a feeble response to an insurmountable problem. However, it’s the response that keeps us in our place that God will exercise His fullness in His place. It's God who will transform THEM into His new creations...the only answer, and their only hope.

1 Corinthians 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

1 Corinthians 1:23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence. But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

God chose sides...all of them. Not to promote, but to save. So no matter which side they're on, they need to know about God's side... God sent us Him - and He sent them, us.


In Him,
Cros
