‘Modern’ Day Pharisees

Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness.

Matthew 23:27

It was the Jewish Pharisees who plotted to kill Jesus of Nazereth, roiled their followers into chants shouting “crucify Him” that prevailed with Pilate. This Jesus was a threat to their political power, false teaching, and control of the people.

Jesus unflinchingly and unabashedly excoriated and judged them in the Seven Woes found in Mathew 23:13-36 calling them ‘hypocrites’ 7 times; blind fools; blind guides; extortioners; serpents; vipers; murderers of the prophets; and the innocents.

The pharisees in America today are those who hate Christ and Christians for the same reasons; reject revealed truth, pervert justice, kill the innocents; and persecute the righteous.

These traffickers in darkness “shut up the Kingdom of Heaven to men, for you neither enter yourselves, nor allow those who would enter to go in.” vs.13-14. e.g. They have gone to great extremes to take Bible reading, Prayer, the Ten Commandments, and mention of the Bible out of our schools, school activities, Commencement ceremonies and the public square. They have used liberal judges and justices in our courts to make our children “twice as much children of hell as they are.” And now they have joined forces over the last 4 years to destroy a President and Administration that threatens their political power, foolish policies, and control of the American people.

Who are these people and what organizations support them?

They are…

  1. Elites in our society who control the levers of power in many of our institutions including education, finance, government, a cooperative MSM and social media.
  2. Numerous Liberal and well funded Foundations
  3. Liberal “Think Tanks (Over 1900 in U.S)
  4. Liberal Universities and colleges
  5. Tenured professors in our Colleges and universities who hold 1619 anti American socialist or communist ideology
  6. American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)
  7. Planned Parenthood
  8. The Democrat Party
  9. Southern Poverty Law Center
  10. Human Rights Watch
  11. George Soros’ Open Society Foundations
  12. And many, many more

As daunting as this pagan movement has become and Jesus’ revelation of the ominous events to come, our LORD warns us to “Watch therefore, for you do not know what day your Lord is coming….you must be ready, for the Son of man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”


That . .

  • Our LORD awakens us to our need to prepare for the events ahead
  • We will walk more closely with Him each day with our children, spouse, and friends
  • We will be ready to explain why we place our trust in Him Who loves us
  • We will look to Him and His Promises during the pandemic
  • That judges will find the courage to look seriously at the overwhelming evidence Donald Trump was re-elected President.
