The sottish children of Israel just had to have a king. What infinite patience and tolerance our dear Father has. After His Love is rejected or ignored in favor of mere flesh, He says "O.K., if you just have to have a flesh king.....
13 Now therefore behold the king whom ye have chosen, and whom ye have desired! and, behold, the LORD hath set a king over you.
14 If ye will fear the LORD, and serve him, and obey his voice, and not rebel against the commandment of the LORD, then shall both ye and also the king that reigneth over you continue following the LORD your God:
1Samuel 12:15 But if ye will not obey the voice of the LORD, but rebel against the commandment of the LORD, then shall the hand of the LORD be against you, as it was against your fathers.
The Lord says "Do No Murder" Obama condones the slaughter of both the "almost" born and the unborn. Bush while giving "lip-service" to the pro-life movement, lacks the (IMO) moral fortitude to use his "bully pulpit" to oppose roe v. wade.
The Lord says "Do Not Covet" Bush-Obama cavort(ed) with Halliburton, Enron, big banks, insurance, et al. The big interest group establishment's payroll is totally bi-partisan. Shame on both sets of bribe takers ! The pimping of usury is the major U.S. industry today and both parties are enriching themselves therefrom in subtil and overt shenanigans.
One party lusts for votes (power=money) the other for cheap labor (money=power). they both ignore the law of the land squandering our national treasury (education,health and infrastructure) to attract the starving masses from countries where cronies (Vincente Fox et al)enjoy us as a personal "safety valve" ; "trading partners" ( Iran, red china et al ) are eating OUR lunch and merrily killing Christians.
In So. California our schools are falling apart, hospitals are closing down, casinos and virtual brothels thriving. Our steroidal (ex)governor drives a hum-v and our kids get asthmatic, fatter, more unruly and functionaly illiterate. Nationally we are trading our paid for in blood freedom for the fool's illusion of "security".(we deserve neither). Our Constitution is made a mockery. Yet this is but the "beginning of sorrows".
Our Loving Father warns us time and again that the wages of sin are death..... it is not His "ego-trip" it is simply His statement that in order to GIVE His (spoiled?) children the flesh experience that is the way He had to structure the universe. He has "bailed us out" (time and again) with the Blood of His Only Begotten.It is up to us to accept or reject this precious gift.
17 Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken.
18 Therefore hear, ye nations, and know, O congregation, what is among them.
19 Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened unto my words, nor to my law, but rejected it.
20 To what purpose cometh there to me incense from Sheba, and the sweet cane from a far country? your burnt offerings are not acceptable, nor your sacrifices sweet unto me.
21 Therefore thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will lay stumblingblocks before this people, and the fathers and the sons together shall fall upon them; the neighbour and his friend shall perish. (KJV)
