New IRS Hires required to “Use Deadly Force If Necessary”

According to recent reports the IRS (Internal Revenue Service) has purchased nearly $700k in ammunition for their armed agents.
Based on the now removed job listing on the official website the requirements for the role would be to “carry a firearm and be willing to use deadly force, if necessary”.
What exactly is this division of the irs?
Based on the listing which has since been removed, this division is called the CI division which is the criminal investigation arm of the IRS, their job is to enforce the irs tax code to make sure people are “in compliance with the law”.
While having armed IRS agents is nothing new, it is being perceived as even more escalation with regard to the right vs left divide, the White House claiming they would not increase taxes on the middle class, the increased spending from the fed and the inflation that all Americans are feeling.
What should Christian’s do?
Pray - The Lord says nothing can be done without Him John 15:5. The Christian life should be marked first by prayer and recognition that apart from the work of God nothing will happen.
Trust - “He is not afraid of bad news; his heart is firm, trusting in the Lord.” Psalm 112:7 ESV
God knows. His plan works from eternity past and he will bring His people out on the other side with renewal.
Prepare for Work - “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10 ESV
Encourage your local church to raise and send evangelists. Those who bring hood tidings. Beautiful are the feet of those who bring the good news.
The gospel of Jesus Christ is the only hope.
Send evangelists to local government buildings, confront magistrates with the gospel, call out their sin, and give them the only hope of salvation of their souls.
This will transform not just our locale but our world.
