As a student of biblical history, I often compare the biblical word with current world events.
I find parallels with the Bush administration.and several Kings of the Old Testament...
The Kings were admonished by God for conducting secret operations of sin.
While King David's men were fighting a battle away from Jerusalem, the King had a secret affair with Uriah's wife, Bathsheba. And Bathsheba became pregnant.
If that wasn't enough, when Uriah came in from battle, David tried to brush off his sin by sending Uriah home to rest, but Uriah would not go--knowing his companions were fighting a war elsewhere.
So the King made Uriah drunk--and sent him into battle—placed on the front line—where Uriah died (2 Samuel 11).
And God sent a message to David by Nathan the Prophet, "Thou didst it secretly, but I will do this thing (raising up evil against David) before all Israel and the sun.
Another King, Ahab, went a step further than David. Not only did King Ahab and wife conspire to kill a man named Naboth, for a vineyard, but took possession of it (1 Kings 21).
And God sent Elijah to confront Ahab's sin, "Hast thou killed and taken possession also?"
Ahab was interrogated by God--and eventually defeated in a battle and died.
And then we have King Nebuchadnezzar, who tried to get everyone to worship a golden calf—a false image of God. (Nothing, I don't believe, could make God madder.)
(But Daniel and friends held onto their faith of the living God, and refused.)
King Nebuchadnezzar was full of pride—thinking he had the answers for everything and that he had built his great kingdom. He could issue any decree he wanted--without resistance.
However, he failed to acknowledge God and His righteousness, and the words from heaven came,"The kingdom is departed from thee."
Such may be the case today in America for conducting secret operations of sin, oppressing the people, and failing to acknowledge a righteous God.
The Kingdom may be removed from thee.
God removeth kings and setteth up kings.
I can only think God will soon remove this president who fails to openly disclose his , the people are ooppressed, and many have died.
