    Surge Summary: So much of the awfulness that has arisen over the past several years in contemporary society ought to be enough to convince the righteous and sensible there can be no compromise with evil. Yet, that doesn’t seem to be happening. Those who refuse compromise should prepare for backlash.

    There’s much more I could mention, but you get the idea.  There can be no compromise with evil. God’s Word is clear in Ephesians 5, “Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience…try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord. Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them.”   But you know what?  Living on the side of righteousness and standing for what is good, and exposing the unfruitful works of darkness is going to cost you something, as the Canadian truckers found out.

    The Canadian Freedom Convoy made an impact on the whole world because those people fearlessly stood up to the tyrant — and that inspired others to do so too.  It caused a shockwave among the Globalist New World Order crowd, and now, as you see, you don’t hear a whole lot about COVID anymore.  Now, we’re being trained to fear World War 3 with Russia and Ukraine.  I’m not down-playing the seriousness of that situation, but mark my words, none of us understands all that’s going on there.  But one thing I do know, it makes a very convenient distraction to keep us in fear, while the next chess piece is moved into place and the shackles tighten a little bit more around each of our ankles.

    When the People’s Convoy here in America was announced, I predicted that it would not have anywhere near the impact as what we saw in Canada.  Because Americans, for the most part, have been kept ignorant and dumb.  Sorry, but it’s true.  Ignorant and dumb makes for compliant and numb.  Apathy.  And I don’t want to rain on anybody’s truck parade, but I knew, as plans were announced for the Convoy here in the States, that it would end up as a waste of time.  Organizers stated up front that they were not going to enter DC or go near the Capital; they WERE going to work with local police and make sure they didn’t impede traffic or cause any commotion.  In short, they were going to hold a “protest” but they were going to compromise and make sure nobody was inconvenienced in any way.

    But that’s not how you effect any sort of change.  For a couple weeks now, the People’s Convoy has held patriotic rallies, and driven around the DC beltline, but that’s pretty much it.  I’ve tried hard to find anything of significance from this convoy in the news.  But there is nothing — not even in the reliable, alternative media I often rely on.  This event is still going on, but having NO impact, no effect.  They haven’t had any impact on Congress or the illegitimate administration or the mandates and rules they’ve sought to put an end to.

    They can wave as many flags as they like and hold all the rallies they like — on private property, away from public view.  But nothing will change because they’ve decided to compromise, break no “laws,” no matter how toothless or unlawful those “laws” may be.  I suspect it will all be over soon, going out with a whimper, when they can no longer afford the price of diesel.  Because while the Canadian movement was able to raise $10 million dollars TWICE, this movement has not even been able to raise $2 million.  Because it’s been wholly ineffective.  Because of compromise.

    You see, in order to be effective in fighting wickedness, evil and darkness, you have to be willing to give something up.  You have to be in it to win it.  You have to be “all in.”  There can be no compromise with evil.  In Acts 5, we read about Jesus’ disciples being arrested and confronted by the religious leaders.  Here’s what happened: “And when they had brought them, they set them before the council. And the high priest questioned them, saying, ‘We strictly charged you not to teach in this Name, (Jesus’ name) yet here you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching, and you intend to bring this Man’s blood upon us.’   But Peter and the apostles answered, ‘We must obey God rather than men.’”

    When we stand for righteousness, we also need to be ready for persecution.  1 Peter 4:12, “Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you.”  No, we should expect persecution.  Not run from it, and certainly not compromise with evil to avoid it.  And we need to be ready to give up the fleshly desires and luxuries of this world.  James 4:4, “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.”

    And Psalm 119, “Joyful are people of integrity, who follow the instructions of the Lord.  Joyful are those who obey His laws and search for Him with all their hearts.  They do not compromise with evil, and they walk only in His paths.”

    I do not SEEK persecution, but I know that if I’m going to have any impact for truth and righteousness and if I’m going to be of any use to God in this life at all, I’m not going to be well liked and popular.  If we belong to Jesus, He’s assigned each of us a cross to carry.  Cross-carrying isn’t fun.  But compromise is not an option.

    When we compromise with evil, when we go along to get along, when we are politically correct, biting our tongues in order to be “non-offensive” to those who are ignorant, dumb, deceived or part of the wicked world system, we cease to be salt and light and until we gather the courage to “love not our own lives, even unto death,” we will always remain utterly useless to God.  “Let the dead bury the dead.”   There can be no compromise with evil.
