Exodus 14:3 For Pharaoh will say of the children of Israel, They are entangled in the land, the wilderness hath shut them in. 4 And I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, that he shall follow after them; and I will be honoured upon Pharaoh, and upon all his host; that the Egyptians may know that I am the LORD. And they did so.
All to often political leaders ignore those self-evident truths that GOD places before them. As we read in the verses above, even after all of the plagues in Egypt and the deaths of thousands the political establishment could not reconcile the fact that GOD does requite justice for evil or that they were in fact part of that evil.
As you can read, the military followed the orders of their corrupt leaders even after seeing hundreds of thousands of their fellow citizens and families fall because of the LORDs judgments. We should take this example and make it applicable to the situation today in the west. As the various judgments fall on the nations for their sins the political leaders will harden their hearts and the military will follow orders. Running headlong into their own eventual destruction.
Judgment comes to all nations in GOD’s time, not ours. The US may have been founded on Christian principles, standards, & ethics; but this country has stepped far away from those Old Paths which lead to its greatness.
Now America is one of the leading countries in exporting pornagraphy, murder, deceit, lies, sodomy, all kinds of vice and evil and most of the corruption around the world has its network of support based and/or origin in the US.
Morality is denigrated and thrown aside, the name of Christ and the Father are disdained when mentioned. Thousands of Christians are being killed and enslaved around the world because of corrupted leadership and business interests.
Families are being destroyed and the righteous are being pushed to the periphery of society and marginslized as extremists. Righteousness is being trodden under the feet of an apathetic populace, the same apathy that led to those citizens of Egypt following their political leaders to their own destruction.
So what can we expect? Turning verse four abit, we could read it like this:
And I will harden President’s heart, that he shall follow after them; and I will be honoured upon the President, and upon all his host; that the Americans may know that I am the LORD. And they did so.
So a lesson learned? Perhaps by some but not by most. Never trust wicked political leaders, it will eventually lead to a nations destruction.
