At thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore (Ps. 16: 11)
He that saith unto the wicked, thou art righteous; him shall the people curse, nations shall abhor him: But to them that rebuke him shall be delight, and a good blessing shall come upon them (KJV).
He who says to the wicked, “You are righteous,” him the people will curse; Nations will abhor him. But those who rebuke the wicked will have delight, and a good blessing will come upon them (NKJV).Proverbs 24:24–25
The prophet Isaiah pronounces a woe on those who call evil good and good evil (Is. 5:20). Precisely because they substitute light for darkness and darkness for light, sweet for bitter and bitter for sweet, they are under a heavy judgment.
The Lord Jesus accentuates what a grievous sin this is when He answers those who accused Him of being demon possessed (Mark 3:22), saying that He was wielding authority over demons because He was possessed by Beelzebub. This was the context in which Jesus warned them about the unpardonable sin (Mark 3:29-30). In other words, they had so inverted things in their souls that black was white, and the holiest man who ever lived was accused by them of being driven by the prince of devils. Jesus doesn’t say that they had committed this sin yet, but it was certainly the direction they were going.
In our proverb here, it is likely talking about a ruler of some sort, someone in a position of authority. When he does wrong, the people curse him, and nations abhor him. He is clearly not what we would call a private person. And what is he called to do? He is called to seek the blessing of God by calling out wickedness for what it is, wickedness. He calls a spade a spade, in other words. Not only so, if he falters at this point, and calls the wicked man righteous, then the people will curse him. He will not receive honor from other nations.
So how does it fare with us in these depraved and grotesque times of ours? In celebration of sodomy, we hold what we call pride parades. Our rulers, everyone who goes along with this kind of nonsense, are under a curse. When we the people pronounce a scriptural curse on it, this is nothing going wrong. Rather it is an attempt to get them to go right again. Perhaps a belated attempt, but an attempt nonetheless.
Sodomy is a matter of disgraceful shame, not pride. Dismembering children is not a constitutional right, and if it were, any Constitution that granted it should be consigned to the flames of Hell. Flight suits that are altered so pregnant women might fly combat missions is not a talking point for a politician, but is rather demented and perverse.
And when a surgeon amputates the private parts of a tranny, doing it for ready money, and all the outrage is reserved for the person who used the word tranny in his discussion of it, then you may be assured that we have driven across some hellish border as a culture, and are making our way through the outskirts of the City of Destruction. But why we are still trying to make our way to the city center, I am sure I don’t know. Isn’t that where the asteroid is going to land?
