I don’t understand why the media has downplayed the wikileaks and the emails of Hillary Clinton. I’m not going to go over the media’s double standard with how they handle Hillary as opposed to Trump for this post but instead I want to focus on an important spiritual lesson that comes from Hillary’s emails being leaked.
One thing everyone can agree upon no matter where you land on the political spectrum is that we get to know more about Hillary from these wikileaks. And they aren’t pretty despite the sanitized image Hillary tries to present herself.
For instance we learn from journalists going over the emails at Wikileaks that Hillary Clinton Stole Furniture From Department of State, Too. She’s done it before when they left the Whitehouse. Apparently she’s a thief.
As late as February 2015 we find her husband Bill emailing that all the Foreign governments donors are “in.” That is, they are given. So much for Hillary ragging on others who have big donors. She’s a hypocrite.
Even the liberal Huffington Post reports “Hillary Clinton’s Appalling Enthusiasm for War” with one of her speech for the hearing of few people that talks about bombing Iran. When you think about her public record and her hostile words directed to Assad in Syria, Putin in Russia and Hillary being responsible for the “Pivot to Asia” or “Rebalance of the Pacific” foreign policy of Obama’s administration, its pretty darn frightening. She’s more neocon than neocon (and I don’t think neocon are true conservatives).
I could go on. But you get the point.
I’m reminded from this that one day all our sins will one day be revealed by a global “Wikileak.” One day everything we have done, all our activities on earth including the shameful and sinful thoughts we have, will be revealed and it will be exposed. Ecclesiastes 12:14 states
For God will bring every act to judgment, everything which is hidden, whether it is good or evil.
Let that sink in: Everything. Including what is hidden. Which would include the evil we have committed.
Revelation 20:12 gives us a picture of what that day would look like:
And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds.
Jesus Himself taught in Matthew 12:36 that this includes every careless words:
“But I tell you that every careless word that people speak, they shall give an accounting for it in the day of judgment.
Paul in Romans 2:16 said that on that day God will even reveal and judge the secrets of men:
on the day when, according to my gospel, God will judge the secrets of men through Christ Jesus.
So are you ready on that day? Will you be found guilty?
I know because of my deeds I would be found guilty. I’m in trouble. Are you?
Does it concern you? That you will be guilty of a life time of sins including secret sins?
That’s bad news there.
But here’s the good news: We can escape the wrath of God we deserve.
Here’s the bad news and good news in one verse:
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Bad news? We see that “the wages of sin is death.” Good news? “The free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Hear Romans 4:25:
He who was delivered over because of our transgressions, and was raised because of our justification.
He died for our sins. His resurrection was for our justification. Justification means being legally declared righteous. It’s not just “not guilty.” Its more than that; its declared legally righteous. We have been legally credited with Jesus’ righteousness if we trust in Him as our Savior from our sins.
Have you trusted in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior?
