Why I pray that President Bush will read his bible.
Weekend of December 28th & 29th, 2002
While in sharp contrast to former president Clinton, President Bush does seem to have strong morals and a fairly good idea of what is right and wrong in a secular sense. But, his every action and statement highlight a serious lack of knowledge when it comes to God's rules, laws and commandments. While the President takes stands against abortion, he does very little to end it. While he sounds pro-US freedom, his actions would have to lead one believe that his true course is in another direction. While our President declares a war on terrorism, he leaves our borders wide open and has on his cabinet one who is openly hostile to Constitutional rights and guarantees and wants instead more muslim terrorist living within our borders.
The Bible is full of kings like our President, men who felt they could lead God's people while at the same time ignoring God's Word and instead turned to false prophets gods and preachers. Today we will read a bit of Scripture that deals with what happens to such kings when they send out minions who put the king first over God, to arrest God's true believers.
Then Moab rebelled against Israel after the death of Ahab. And Ahaziah fell down through a lattice in his upper chamber that was in Samaria, and was sick: and he sent messengers, and said unto them, "Go, enquire of Baalzebub the god of Ekron whether I shall recover of this disease."
But the angel of the LORD said to Elijah the Tishbite, Arise, go up to meet the messengers of the king of Samaria, and say unto them, "Is it not because there is not a God in Israel, that ye go to enquire of Baalzebub the god of Ekron? Now therefore thus saith the LORD, Thou shalt not come down from that bed on which thou art gone up, but shalt surely die." And Elijah departed.
And when the messengers turned back unto him, he said unto them, "Why are ye now turned back?" And they said unto him, "There came a man up to meet us, and said unto us, 'Go, turn again unto the king that sent you, and say unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Is it not because there is not a God in Israel, that thou sendest to enquire of Baalzebub the god of Ekron? therefore thou shalt not come down from that bed on which thou art gone up, but shalt surely die.'"
And he said unto them, "What manner of man was he which came up to meet you, and told you these words?" And they answered him, "He was an hairy man, and girt with a girdle of leather about his loins". And he said, "It is Elijah the Tishbite."
Then the king sent unto him a captain of fifty with his fifty. And he went up to him: and, behold, he sat on the top of an hill. And he spake unto him, "Thou man of God, the king hath said, Come down." And Elijah answered and said to the captain of fifty, "If I be a man of God, then let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty." And there came down fire from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty.
Again also he sent unto him another captain of fifty with his fifty. And he answered and said unto him, "O man of God, thus hath the king said, Come down quickly." And Elijah answered and said unto them, "If I be a man of God, let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty." And the fire of God came down from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty.
And he sent again a captain of the third fifty with his fifty. And the third captain of fifty went up, and came and fell on his knees before Elijah, and besought him, and said unto him, "O man of God, I pray thee, let my life, and the life of these fifty thy servants, be precious in thy sight. Behold, there came fire down from heaven, and burnt up the two captains of the former fifties with their fifties: therefore let my life now be precious in thy sight." And the angel of the LORD said unto Elijah, Go down with him: be not afraid of him. And he arose, and went down with him unto the king.
And he said unto him, "Thus saith the LORD, Forasmuch as thou hast sent messengers to enquire of Baalzebub the god of Ekron, is it not because there is no God in Israel to enquire of his word? therefore thou shalt not come down off that bed on which thou art gone up, but shalt surely die."
So he died according to the word of the LORD which Elijah had spoken. And Jehoram reigned in his stead in the second year of Jehoram the son of Jehoshaphat king of Judah; because he had no son. Now the rest of the acts of Ahaziah which he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel? (2 Kings 1:1-18)
What we have here is a king, like so many of our recent presidents that claim to be Christ serving, but instead turned to strange gods. gods who are not gods at all, but are nothing but creation wannabees. Over the last five or six administrations, there has been two who have really gone out of their way to imply that they have faith in the Lord Jesus and that they seek His word and His advice. These two have been Jimmy Carter and the current Gorge Bush. The absolute truth that shows us that neither of these two was or is telling the truth is their utter contempt for the baby in the womb.
I want you to read these next passages of scripture very carefully I want you to see how God came to earth, not as a grown man or even a young child, but as a speck in the womb of Mary:
And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, to a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary.
And the angel came in unto her, and said, "Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women." And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.
And the angel said unto her, "Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a Son, and shalt call His name JESUS. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto Him the throne of His father David: And He shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of His kingdom there shall be no end."
Then said Mary unto the angel, "How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?"
And the angel answered and said unto her, "The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that Holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God." (Luke1:26-35)
God came to earth as a speck in the womb of Mary, nine months later God was born of a woman and His name was called Jesus. Now, do you think for even one instant that God is ever going to condone the wanton slaughter of what He once was, a baby trapped in the womb? If you think He is, you are every bit the fool that George Bush and Jimmy Carter are playing you for.
I don't know how much longer the Lord God is going to let us get away with having presidents that serve satan and offer up to him the blood of the baby in the womb as human sacrifices, but this I do know, as long as President Bush serves the god of islam, the God of the Bible will only get madder and madder. And while the Lord God Creator of all things loves us and is long suffering, we who read His word and understand the Word know that when God finally reaches the point where He says 'enough is enough', the consequences are not pretty.
So, pray my brothers, pray that President Bush will turn from his idolatry, turn from his false god worship and turn to the God of Creation, the God of the Bible. For we are on very thin ice with the Lord, and that ice is getting thinner by the day. God has already made us a nation of cowardly men, men who need to send our daughters out into the streets to protect us from hoodlums, drug dealers, rapist and murderers. Cowards who send our daughter out into the army to fight wars. For we have become a nation of men unable to protect yourselves. As you read the Old Testament, you will see that God did much the same to the Children of Israel before letting Babylon, today's Iraq, conquer them.
Pray for the salvation of our troops and the conversion of our president. Pray for revival in our nation especially in our the pulpits. And pray for an end to the offering up of babies to satan. I'm not just talking about partial birth abortion, I am talking about all abortion. Don't be complacent when satan finally tells his minions to toss us a bone by ending partial birth abortion.
Lord God please give us more time.
God blessed America when she feared Him, now it appears, she may face His wrath.
