We who love the Lord and hate evil, were called “A basket full of Deplorables” by Hillary Clinton.
deserving strong condemnation:
“the deplorable conditions in which most prisoners are held”
synonyms: disgraceful · shameful · dishonorable · unworthy · [more]
shockingly bad in quality:
“her spelling was deplorable”
synonyms: lamentable · regrettable · unfortunate · wretched ·
atrocious · awful · terrible · dreadful · diabolical · sorry · poor · inadequate · appalling · dire · abysmal · woeful · lousy · grievous
Let me show you why this is a compliment. Hillary Clinton and rest of the leftist liberal atheists, would never understand this, because it’s found in the Word of God; and the natural man cannot receive the things of God. They must be born again to understand.
We are not friends with the world.
“Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God” (James 4:4).
The world hates and persecutes us because they hated Him first
“If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me” (James 15:18-21).
Those who reject Christ love darkness.
“And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil” (John 3:19).
We have ALL sinned, but Christians have been forgiven. The lost see no reason for forgiveness.
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).
The heart of the natural man is filled with all sorts of evil.
“And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.” (Mark 7:20-23).
We are called by our Lord to die to ourselves to become more like Him.
“Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God” (Galatians 5:19-21)
So, do you see that being called “Deplorables” was actually the Lord showing us that we are following Him, and that He is pleased with how we are standing on His Word in this wicked world?
Praise His Holy Name!
