Now is the time to understand what is happening today, and what God’s doing.
And David said to Abishai and to all his servants, “Behold, my own son seeks my life; how much more now may this Benjaminite! Leave him alone, and let him curse, for the LORD has told him to. It may be that the LORD will look on the wrong done to me, and that the LORD will repay me with good for his cursing today.” – 2 Samuel 16:11-12
As David’s enemies were increasing and he was fleeing the city from his son Absolom who was seeking to take his throne, a man named Shimei began heaving rocks and cursing him as he passed by. Cursing the king was against the law, so David had every right to cut off the man’s head — as his generals were encouraging him to do. Here we see the difference between Saul and David in their response to those who would seek to do them harm. This is the defining difference between a leader who seeks to lead through a vertical dimension with God versus a horizontal fix-it mode.
Congress and many people are cursing the president after all the good he’s done for the nation. His error? I don’t believe that he handled things in a “vertical way with God at the helm” – but in a “horizontal way with man” – trying to fix things under his own power.
King David was being cursed by Shumai, punishable by death by beheading – instead, he said to let him go, and let God handle it.
God’s working something – I was given the 2nd chapter of Hosea on Wednesday evening and wrote about it yesterday. I truly believe that God’s fed up with the direction this nation has been taking for decades – the deception, the sinful laws and customs that we as a nation have allowed to come to fore … and we Christians didn’t do squat to stop it.
Although President Trump is pro-life, he still celebrates homosexuality, same sex marriage, and has done nothing to address the abhorrent practice of transsexuals, define marriage between a man and a woman, and men and women sleeping and living together without benefit of marriage and other garbage. Sin is sin is sin – God makes no distinction between sins – it’s all punishable by death.
God’s sick of it, and He’s ready to weigh in – and like any good parent, He will deploy discipline and judgment.
He gave us four years to get things right – and we didn’t. Now God needs to intervene – and there’s nothing we can do to stop it – unless this nation fundamentally repents, and changes.
I don’t see that happening without a “divine butt whooping”… it’s coming under Biden.
Mark my words.
