PRAYER ALERT. Rogue states using high tech could do far more than influence an election. With one nuclear bomb exploded at a 62-mile height, they could reduce half of the US to a hardly survivable condition. Cyberattacks on the US infrastructure could do the same. In these ways, rogue states using high tech could not only cripple the US, but the world economy that is so widely entangled with the US economy.
Dictionary.com defines a rogue state as “a state that conducts its policy in a dangerously unpredictable way, disregarding international law or diplomacy.” North Korea is one rogue state with growing nuclear and cyberwarfare capabilities. Iran is another. Iran’s “nuclear deal” with Western nations “would not block Iran’s path to the bomb [but] would pave it”, according to Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu. Asia expert Gordon Chang says North Korea has been helping Iran for years in secret to develop nuclear weapons. Leaders of both nations have called for the destruction of the US. So has ISIS and other terrorist groups, which harbor ambitions for cyber-development and nuclear power.
Some Western leaders have accused Russia and China of acting like rogue states. Russia defied the West in annexing Crimea. China defied its neighbors in building military bases on contested South China Sea islands. Some also fear that the unorthodox Donald Trump may go rogue with US foreign policy as president. His choices for the heads of the Departments of State, Defense, NSA and CIA have largely dispelled that suspicion.
Trump said he will appoint a team to work out a plan in his first 90 days to combat cyberattacks. Unfortunately, we live in a world where cyberwarfare is pervasive. The US practices it as much as anyone else. But the US is especially vulnerable because its government, infrastructure, airlines, corporations are linked into hack-able digital control systems (read more). And much of the world system is linked into the US. Switching to safer analog control systems would cost enormous amounts of time and money. So therefore we must turn to God for protection.
PRAY WITH US. Father, Your Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. No search engine can match You. No plan escapes Your notice. You see every cyber-scheme and military move of great nations and rogue states using high tech. Your technology is far higher. Your power is far greater. Use Your divine technology and power to disarm every plan of mass destruction in the world. Use even the weak to shame the strong. Make wars to cease to the ends of the earth.
And let peacemakers arise. Show the way to right relationships between the US, China and Russia. Form coalitions of non-terrorist nations against terrorist states such as North Korea, Iran and ISIS. Protect infrastructures against infiltrators. Protect borders against jihadist conspirators. Expose and uproot terrorist cells in every nation’s midst. Let God arise, and Your enemies be scattered. And when they seek direction, let them find You. Show that Jesus alone can save them from their sins. Show them that He alone is worthy of their devotion. For every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. In Jesus’ name, amen.
