Those in the mystery of iniquity–who toil in the darkness JUST BENEATH the upper tier–many times suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune which those who make up the many can only imagine.
Call it the “twists and turns of iniquity.”
Yes, the ones the public knows as the rich and celebrated; the “celebrities;” the “billionaire;” the “beautiful people;” the “leaders of the world;” the “glitterati“: though they live in circumstances much more elevated than the rest of their fellows, they also must march to a stricter drummer who demands much more of them BECAUSE they are the more privileged.
And their mantra is a corruption of Luke 12:48.
“For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.”
(Proof that Satan knows Scripture. He just has no idea how to apply it.)
Luke 12:48 is also the basis of the popular comic book phrase made famous by Marvel web-slinger, Spider-Man.
“With great power comes great responsibility.”
One of the worst situations the worker of iniquity places himself into is looking for PROMISES to be fulfilled by those who regularly lie and break their promises to others.
Those who covet ALWAYS want MORE: more money, more power, more prestige, more control over other men.
And they are promised more–IF they deliver more for those who make such promises.
And so, they not only WORK hard, they SCHEME hard: rubbing their hand together in their best imitation of a cartoon villain as they hatch their plots to further the plans of their masters–and thus, realize the promises they have been made.
But the best laid plans of mice and men…
IF the schemes of the workers of iniquity pan out;
IF the work they have done furthers their masters’ aims;
IF it suits the ones calling the shots:
Occasionally, promises are SOMETIMES HONORED.
Otherwise, they are not.
The “Why?’s” are given, but unconvincing.
And so, the workers of iniquity are left holding a bag of “What If’s.–and left to concocting their own versions of what-might-have-been.
This, however, requires no great effort: it is not surprising those who regularly lie to others can lie most effectively to themselves.
Alas, the twists and turns of iniquity!
“…the evil man…Who rejoice to do evil, and delight in the frowardness of the wicked; Whose ways are crooked…”
HAS the reader ever had to rely on unreliable men to honor their promises?
It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
