Three Ways God Responds To Wicked Leaders
By Doug Giles
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 we’re 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 we’re doing up several notches and get aggressive with the progressives.
Secondly, who the heck says that God’s only recourse when dealing with sucky situations is to rapture his people out the mess they’ve 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.
Let’s break this Psalm down, shall we? So, what do we have? Well, according to the psalm we have a nation and their ruler[s] that’re blowing off God and his righteous decrees, right? Right.
How does God respond? Does he pout? Quit? Move to Panama? Start overeating Haagen Daz because he’s so depressed? Does he emotionally check out and starting smoking weed and get into tie-dyeing beefy T’s to pass the time? Let’s see shall we?
