Skip to comments.3 Ways God Responds To Wicked Leaders
Posted on 06/22/2014 3:18:42 PM PDT by Kaslin
I don't know about you, but when I look at the multifaceted ways Obama and his ilk are destroying our nation I get more angry and depressed than Ted Nugent being forced to watch Lois Lerner do an interpretive dance to Boy George's song Do You Really Want To Hurt Me, the extended cut.
Obama has overwhelmed/is truly overwhelming our nation with truly overwhelming cataclysmic crises that have left a lot of good people saying, Screw it. I'm moving to Panama. Despair seems to be the soup de jour and it's being served up to us cold. Ice cold.
When I get around people who still give a flip about our nation the conversation inevitably goes to What can we do to stop this fetid mess BHO and his boys are foisting upon our land?
The typical response is: Get knowledgeable about what our nation was originally intended to be and what a cartoon of that we have now become. After that get active, get vocal, protest, vote with your money, join Facebook groups with like-minded warriors, go to a bunch of conferences, scream at the television, and of course, vote during elections.
The problem is we do all that and it still doesn't look like we're putting a dent in what the President and the progressives are doing to our land and a lot of folks think that our votes won't count anyway because of voter fraud and corruption.
Some people of faith conclude, Well ... I guess this is The End. Our preacher said it was gonna get this way before Jesus returns to kick some ass.' And they resolve themselves to apathy and cynicism and become about as active Howard Hughes was during the flu season.
Speaking of God, for those who still care about Him and what He and His word think, what does the Bible say we should believe and look for when our nation is getting gutted and ransacked by leaders and policies that try to dispense with that which is holy, just and good? Does it lead us to despair? Should we look for Jesus to rapture us out of this mess? Should our current climate make believers act like Lewis Black? Are. We. Done. For?
First off, let state that as much as it might look like were Paula Abduling and going one step forward and three steps back with the best of our efforts to right the Obama wrongs, I do believe our righteous works are working and we need to step everything that were doing up several notches and get aggressive with the progressives.
Secondly, who the heck says that Gods only recourse when dealing with sucky situations is to rapture his people out the mess theyve allowed themselves to get into? Biblically we've got a slew of passages that show that God can and will jackhammer rulers who dispense with his way and turn nations into a lawless, idolatrous and godless mess. For instance check out Psalm 2 gloomy Christian
Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and against his Anointed, saying, Let us burst their bonds apart and cast away their cords from us. He who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord holds them in derision. Then he will speak to them in his wrath, and terrify them in his fury, saying, As for me, I have set my King on Zion, my holy hill. I will tell of the decree: The Lord said to me, You are my Son; today I have begotten you. Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage, and the ends of the earth your possession. You shall break them with a rod of iron and dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel. Now therefore, O kings, be wise; be warned, O rulers of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and you perish in the way, for his wrath is quickly kindled. Blessed are all who take refuge in him.
Lets break this Psalm down, shall we? So, what do we have? Well, according to the psalm we have a nation and their ruler[s] thatre blowing off God and his righteous decrees, right? Right.
How does God respond? Does he pout? Quit? Move to Panama? Start overeating Hagen Daz because hes so depressed? Does he emotionally check out and starting smoking weed and get into tie-dyeing beefy Ts to pass the time? Lets see shall we?
According to Psalm 2 God does three things.
1. He laughs at the people and rulers who snub his ways. Gods amused that the puny ants he has created have now decided they can take things from here and they dont need his holy ways or wisdom. Not only does he laugh at these wicked rulers who seek autonomy but he also scoffs at them and holds em in derision. He thinks not only is their rebellion laughable but he also makes fun of them and sneers at them. Didnt they ever teach you this at Sunday School? I didnt think so. But it is Biblical, eh?
2. God rebukes the people and the rulers crapping on the nation. Rebuke is a word we dont hear much of anymore, which makes me like it all the more. Rebuke is sharp or harsh disapproval. Check it out. Psalm 2 does not say, God forgives and forgets how wicked people and policies are destroying a land. It doesnt say hes changed his eternal ways and is now cool with their hip, groovy, 21st century decisions. It does not say hes passive and merely acknowledges or, worse yet, winks at their wantonness. Oh, heck no. It says he castigates the folks that are jacking things up.
3. Not only does God laugh, scoff and rebuke the unrighteous acts of ingrate leaders, Pslam 2 also states that He is out to terrify him. What does that mean? I dont know but it sounds terrifying, doesnt it? When God arises to whup some ass, from what Ive read and seen, you dont what to be the recipient of that pool cue. In several different ways the inspired psalmist brands the reader with the revelation that leaders and godless policies impenitently pursued and propagated stir up Gods terrible wrath and that he will unleash it on their particular heads and land. Here, in this psalm, a promise is given, in a metaphorical way, that he will break and dash their wicked ruler and their reign into pieces. Whatever that means, it sounds pretty bad and pretty thorough.
In conclusion, according to the Verbum Dei, God states, according to Psalm 2, that hes going to bless his people; he promises to establish his sons rule and to protect those who take refuge in him. For those whore blowing Him off and leading their nation down highway 666 to CrapTown, God promises in no small or unclear way to deal with them in an exhaustive manner as only he can.
Therefore, my brothers and sisters, who love God and this great land: expose, fight, protest, vote, rally, decry and do everything in your power to derail this dastardly dismantling of our nation; and never forget that a Holy God is also monitoring this BS and will temporally and eternally kick the backside of those who despise and dispense with His ways.
God as he did for Job, will rescue us from Satan’ Earthly Generals.
Rand Slams Congress for Funding Egypt's Generals: 'How Does Your Conscience Feel Now?'Sen. Rand Paul is hammering his fellow senators for keeping billions in financial aid flowing to Egypt's military -- even as Cairo's security forces massacre anti-government activists.

Rand Paul On Shutdown: "Even Though It Appeared I Was Participating In It, It Was A Dumb Idea"I said throughout the whole battle that shutting down the government was a dumb idea. Even though it did appear as if I was participating in it, I said it was a dumb idea. And the reason I voted for it, though, is that it's a conundrum. Here's the conundrum. We have a $17 trillion debt and people at home tell me you can't give the president a blank check. We just can't keep raising the debt ceiling without conditions. So unconditionally raising the debt ceiling, nobody at home wants me to vote for that and I can't vote for that. But the conundrum is if I don't we do approach these deadlines. So there is an impasse. In 2011, though, we had this impasse and the president did negotiate. We got the sequester. If we were to extend the sequester from discretionary spending to all the entitlements we would actually fix our problem within a few years.[Posted on 11/19/2013 12:16:51 PM by Third Person]
Rand Paul: Time for GOP to soften war stance...by softening its edge on some volatile social issues and altering its image as the party always seemingly "eager to go to war... We do need to expand the party and grow the party and that does mean that we don't always all agree on every issue" ... the party needs to become more welcoming to individuals who disagree with basic Republican doctrine on emotional social issues such as gay marriage... "We're going to have to be a little hands off on some of these issues ... and get people into the party," Paul said.[Posted on 01/31/2013 5:08:50 PM PST by xzins]
Rand Paul's immigration speech...The Republican Party must embrace more legal immigration.[Posted on 03/19/2013 7:04:07 AM PDT by Perdogg]
Unfortunately, like many of the major debates in Washington, immigration has become a stalemate-where both sides are imprisoned by their own rhetoric or attachment to sacred cows that prevent the possibility of a balanced solution.
Immigration Reform will not occur until Conservative Republicans, like myself, become part of the solution. I am here today to begin that conversation.
Let's start that conversation by acknowledging we aren't going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants.
If you wish to work, if you wish to live and work in America, then we will find a place for you...
This is where prudence, compassion and thrift all point us toward the same goal: bringing these workers out of the shadows and into being taxpaying members of society.
Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers.12 million more people assimilating into society. 12 million more people being productive contributors.
Rand Paul calls on conservatives to embrace immigration reformLatinos, should be a natural constituency for the party, Paul argued, but "Republicans have pushed them away with harsh rhetoric over immigration." ...he would create a bipartisan panel to determine how many visas should be granted for workers already in the United States and those who might follow... [and the buried lead] "Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers...[Posted on 04/21/2013 1:52:42 PM PDT by SoConPubbie]
[but he's not in favor of amnesty, snicker, definition of is is]
I’ve got a problem with a potty mouth too, but it would be nice if someone writing an article about God would refrain from cussing in print.
And while I have no doubt about who will win in the End, that doesn’t mean I’m looking forward to what happens in America during the next 20-30 years of my expected life span unless we repent of our sin and experience a massive revival.
I like the “modern” and present day language used to deliver the message. It’s in lingo that gets the message across clearly...
Where was he cursing? Cursing is taking the name of the Lord in vain or calling down damnation on someone or something. Using earthy terms may be in poor taste, but it isn’t cursing.
The dictionary definition of curse word:
“a profane or obscene word, especially as used in anger or for emphasis.”
We must do as Job did.
God as he did for Job, will rescue us from Satan Earthly Generals.
Let ME help!
Having undertaken, for the Glory of God, and advancements of the Christian faith and honor of our King and Country, a voyage to plant the first colony in the Northern parts of Virginia, do by these presents, solemnly and mutually, in the presence of God, and one another, covenant and combine ourselves together into a civil body politic; for our better ordering, and preservation and furtherance of the ends aforesaid; and by virtue hereof to enact, constitute, and frame, such just and equal laws, ordinances, acts, constitutions, and offices, from time to time, as shall be thought most meet and convenient for the general good of the colony; unto which we promise all due submission and obedience.In witness whereof we have hereunto subscribed our names at Cape Cod the 11th of November, in the year of the reign of our Sovereign Lord King James, of England, France, and Ireland, the eighteenth, and of Scotland the fifty-fourth, 1620.
Job was a RIGHTEOUS man: he had NOTHING to repent from.
We, as a Nation, have LOTS of repenting to do.
The blood of 56,000,000 innocents cry out for
We HAVE been weighed in the balance and found wanting.
2 Chronicles 7:14
If my people, who are called by my name,
shall humble themselves,
and pray, and seek my face,
and turn from their wicked ways; ,
then will I hear from heaven,
and will forgive their sin,
and will heal their land.
Oh Elsie, that's so much better and done without one vulgar, crude or idle, emphatic word!!!
God bless you for posting that!!! Those Brits knew how to emphatically tell ya to "go to Hell" in a way that would seem to make you enjoy the trip!!!
Being able to tell someone to “go to hell” without vilgarity, and without them realizing it for a couple of days, is most certainly a gift, and one gift we need more of now.
Good to “see” you! ;-)
Kinda like THIS?
A guy was getting ready to tee off on the first hole when a second golfer approached and asked if he could join him. The first said that he usually played alone, but agreed to the twosome. They were even after the first two holes. The second guy said, "We're about evenly matched, how about playing for five bucks a hole?" The first guy said that he wasn't much for betting, but agreed to the terms. The second guy won the remaining sixteen holes with ease. When the round was over, while he was busy counting his $80, he confessed that he was the pro at a neighboring course and liked to pick on suckers. The first fellow revealed that he was the Parish Priest. The pro was flustered and apologetic, offering to return the money. The Priest said, "You won fair and square and I was foolish to bet with you. You keep your winnings." The pro said, "Is there anything I can do to make it up to you?" The Priest said, "Well, you could come to Mass on Sunday and make a donation. And, if you want to bring your mother and father along, I'll marry them.
