An Ailing Chavez Prays For Time
Wall Street Journal Latin Ameica ^ | updated April 7, 2012 | Rogerio Jelmayer, Charles Roth, Ezequiel Minaya

Posted on 04/07/2012 2:12:56 PM PDT by libstripper

CARACAS—Concern about Venezuela President Hugo Chávez's health grew Friday amid reports the cancer-stricken leader will seek emergency medical care in Brazil, a day after the president broke down during a religious service and begged Jesus Christ to grant him life.

Looks like Hugo is on the way to meet another communist, Teddy Kennedy. This really detailed article makes it look like he's fast on the way to the HOT PLACE.

“Lord have mercy on anyone that cries out to you.”

I’ve heard that God listens to all our prayers, but sometimes the answer is...”No!”

At least Chavez has some time to repent, not that he’ll make use of it.

I couldn’t take it any longer
Lord I was crazed
And when the feeling came upon me
Like a tidal wave
I started swearing to my god and on my mother’s grave
That I would love you to the end of time
I swore that I would love you to the end of time!
So now I’m praying for the end of time
To hurry up and arrive
Cause if I gotta spend another minute with you
I don’t think that I can really survive
I’ll never break my promise or forget my vow
But God only knows what I can do right now
I’m praying for the end of time
It’s all that I can do
Praying for the end of time, so I can end my time with you!!!

Romans 10:8-10 King James Version (KJV)

8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;

9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

I agree. If Chavez is TRULY sincere and God chooses to be merciful to him and heal him both physically and spiritually, then my prayer would be that Chavez serve Christ with as much ferver as he used to serve communism. We must remember the example of Paul’s Damascus Road conversion.

“President Chávez said he could still “smell sulphur” left behind by the “devil”, George Bush, who had addressed the chamber 24 hours before.”

There’s no getting around it: It’s hot there in Heck, Hugo.
It’s hotter than the cherry red-hot hinges on the gates to Heck.
But it’s a dry heat. Try to get a job in the laundry.
You’ll be eligible for parole ................. never.

I read the article and the quote of what he said did not include asking for forgiveness of sin, only to let him live.

He is an enemy to this country and a friend of Iran.

It's never been disclosed, but it appears to be going great guns. Since he referred to an "abdominal tumor," my guess is colon cancer.

First Hugo wants to make everyone in his country miserable as long as possible. Second, the Commie knows in his heart there is a heaven and a hell. It is not for me to judge where he goes, but I have a pretty good Idea where I would go if I were like him.

“An Ailing Chavez Prays For Time”

It would seem more appropriate if the petty dictator prayed to his god, Karl Marx.

“What kind of cancer does he have?”

I am not a doctor, but my father died of cancer of the bone marrow (Myeloma) and it is an awful way to go. It is very painful and your bones fall apart. He will be lucky if it’s spread to his colon and that takes him sooner, I would not wish Myeloma on anyone ( well almost anyone). Treatment now isn’t a lot better than it was 35 years ago. It is always a terminal disease.

(CNN) — Cancer has spread in Hugo Chavez’s colon, spine and bones, and the Venezuelan president could have only nine months to live, Spain’s ABC newspaper reported Monday, citing medical records provided by unidentified intelligence sources.
“His health appears to be deteriorating at a more rapid pace. Clearly there has been metastasis in the bones and the spine,” the ABC report says, citing what it said were doctors’ observations after medical tests December 30.

Thank the Lord when they find Him at all. I have no personal respect for Hugo Chavez, and I am praying that the cancer takes him soon. But if he truly finds the Lord after Romans 10_9-10, that will be a good thing.

The clueless bishops of the Catholic church pleaded for the military leaders to let Chavez take back his post during the coup that threatened his presidency in its infancy. He showed absolutely no gratitude to the church after getting his power back.

No one should question God’s justice.

The problem with Chavez is he has always thought that what happens on this cess pool earth is important. Even now he begs god to let him live longer HERE! To what purpose?

What is he? 58?

He will die of old age in 20 to 30 years. Why the drama?

Pretty sure he’ll get what he wants if he is willing to change his modus operandi.

But, like most of our political leaders, they want something for nothing.

Not likely: Partial transcript of 1985 video interview of KGB defector Yuri Alexander Bezmenov...

"... You are stuck with them. You cannot get rid of them. They are contaminated, They are programmed to think and react to certain stimuli in a certain pattern. You cannot change their mind even if you expose them to authentic information, even if you prove that white is white and black is black you still cannot change the basic perception and illogical behavior. In other words, these people, the process of demoralization is complete and irreversible..."

In case of Latin America, most of them are religious even when they are Communist. Understandable as their religion is Catholicism which is the hotbed of Communism/Socialism. Think Michael Moore.
