THE most dangerous man…

A casual poll was taken recently at a lecture regarding ‘THE most dangerous man’ of our times. Suggestions were asked for and the usual suspects made the list:

Image result for mr dangerous

-Obama, Bush, Clinton

-Boko, Jihad John, Kim Jong

-Netanyahu (?)

-Axlerod, Boehner, Biden, etc, etc.

After the audience exhausted their picks, the speaker was happy to inform them of his opinion.

The distinction and award for THE most dangerous man went to Putin. He cited the missile threats, the confederacies with nations, his zenith rise to power,  his steely resolve, yep, he said THE most dangerous man in the world is Vlad. He gave a hundred other reasons why, and at the end of the day acquired a few more disciples to his line of reasoning. But I say, ok, I get it but ‘not so fast.’

I was not in this group of people hearing this lecture, because I may have inserted ‘foot-in-mouth’ just to be fair. When I first heard this question ‘who is THE most dangerous man…’ only one person came to mind, and it was immediate. There was no deliberation, no scanning of history or archives of the mind, no files sought so I could make an intelligent selection.

I have a  better  pick than all the ones mentioned, and he would be the antichrist. But does he make the winners circle as THE most dangerous man in the world? No, for he is not the BEST pick.

To be critically fair, the best choice for ‘most dangerous man in the world’  would be:

ME

Why? Because I do not know unequivocally what is in the hearts of Putin, Bush, and the rest. I do know however what lurks in my own heart, and if one of these slippery thoughts were to gain traction,  heck, maybe I will  ‘deny the Lord.’   Is this dangerous?  Hmmmm.

Perhaps moreso than the deeds of tyrants. When brother Peter said ‘ha, Lord , no worries, I will never deny thee,’ The Lord only had to consider that first rascal Adam, to know well enough that Peter would take a fall.

And the Lord said  ‘Satan wants you,’ and this would surely qualify Peter as the most dangerous man in the world, to be so used and abused by the enemy of God. We cannot under estimate the damage done by a  person so used by Satan. Does Judas Iscariot come to mind?

Thankfully, men and women, you and I, have all the resources of heaven at our disposal, to lead a quiet and godly life unto the glory of God. Satan walks about seeking who he may devour, but there is ONE greater. Greater is He that is in you…..Thank God.

Putin? Ha, I am the real threat to myself, but oh how the grace of God sustains.

      Yea, I think Mr. O. would get quite a few votes. 😉

      I have been considering of late Ana, that promotion if it could be called that, in the kingdom of God, is always through going down, where there is no competition at the bottom.

      By that I mean, down as in how God describes it- total dependence on Him, esteeming others greater, etc,

      and the ‘promotion’ I mention, is simply a greater understanding of God and His ways.

  2. Very humbling message, Colorstorm. We cannot control the minds and actions of others (not even God can do that, because He willingly gave us free will), so we can only change how we react to others and certain circumstances.

  3. Beautiful, I love it.

    Something I have become aware of, the enemy tends to try and target those promotions. We become dangerous to the enemy, too. There’s nothing to fear, we are well protected, but I can almost mark the significance of a promotion by the nature of the attack that soon follows.

      Nice confirmation IB about the promotion! Very true.

      Seems the older I get, and the more scripture grasped, his footprints can be seen from a distance, and his whisper is a ROAR.

      Possibly Dangerous?’ yep, thats us. But thats a good thing, for we KNOW what the heart is capable of, right?

      Someone once remarked if the devil knows your name, then you must be walking uprightly.

      • “Someone once remarked if the devil knows your name, then you must be walking uprightly.”

        That reminds me of another thing I heard: “The devil knows your name but calls you by your sin; God knows your sin but calls you by your name.” Both very true messages.

          That is sooooooooooo good.
          Especially the second part. That is solid doctrine there Ada. The great accuser could say ‘see THAT sin by your so called disciple?’

          And the Lord can perfectly say ‘What sin would that be?’ As he not only forgives, but remembers them no more. Oh, what a God and what a Saviour.

          Great addition by you, tk a lot.,

        • He really is the perfect Savior. The enemy often tries to pit us Christians against each other to make our witness confusing and tainted, so there’s a lot of accusations in the Church. The important thing is that even when we tell our brothers and sisters to do better and strengthen their walk in Christ, we should always capitalize on mercy, forgiveness, and encouragement.

          Always good talking to you, Colorstorm. 🙂 God bless.
