What is the first clue of why righteousness will persevere over evil in time.
In the previous post, I stated I would explore the first clue, a Proverb, to answer this question.
Do not lurk like a thief near the house of the righteous,
do not plunder their dwelling place;
for though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again,
but the wicked stumble when calamity strikes. (Proverbs 24:15-16)
This proverb is a warning to evil men not to attack the resting place of pious righteous men. Whether it be their home or place of worship. If they do, the righteous will never be defeated. While they may fall back from the weight of attacks, over time, they will rise up again and endure. In the long run, their righteousness will be vindicated, whereas evil men, because they are dedicated to evil will stumble finally. (Excerpts Proverbs Mc Kane)
Seven parts for the righteous, but only one part for the evildoer, is another similar Aramaic proverb.
The number seven is in the Bible is mentioned 860 times. The reason believed is because the number seven symbolizes as a foundation of God’s Word.
This proverb implies, suspension or delayed verification, and a loss of immediacy may occur in the operation of a theocracy. The point being whenever evil attacks the homes of righteous persons or nations, in time, because of the foundation of God’s Word, the righteous will persevere to rise back up again to win over evil over time.
This first clue partially answers the mystery of how one can philosophically or politically readily determine what is or was a righteous or an evil action. In recorded history every time an evil philosophy or cause has attacked the houses of the righteous, over time, evil lost. Either the evildoers stumbled when faced with a calamity and/or they somehow died over time. The evidence of their failure being the fact that no followers carried on their cause or philosophy.
Keep in mind that the King Solomon proverb was written 3000 years ago. History has recorded numerous defeats of evil men and how righteousness persevered over time to repeatedly rise up to win over evil. Yet evil keeps reappearing over time. Why?
In My Next Post
I will explore the second clue of how one can readily determine what is a righteous, or what is evil philosophically or politically. According to past history, any movement or belief, past or present that identifies with this clue as being evil, will change or fail in time based on past history.
