The atrocities of the last administration of promoting sexual gender change, spying on Americans, falsely promising affordable health care, going so far as to have sexual practices taught in the schools (under planned parenthood) rather than kids getting an education that will help them find jobs, negligence in Benghazi of supporting U.S. Government employees, along with the killing of innocent people in foreign countries by drones — made me think about other rulers and subordinates who performed such practices in the past — and were confronted by God.
Manasseh is one. He practiced witchcraft, strange divinations, put a false idol in the temple, sacrificed children, and murdered innocent people (1 Chronicles 33).
It did not go unnoticed by our Lord, who sent commanders from the Assyrians to bind Manasseh and his people, put a hook in his nose, shackle him and put him in prison
That’s what God does when evil begins to proliferate: he cleans it up.
Manasseh’s son took over the kingdom and didn’t make any good changes; therefore he was slain by the people, and Josiah was made king.
And Josiah did that which was right by the Lord: he tore down the high places of worship, removed false idols, and repaired the temple.
But he sure had a mess to clean up.
It’s sad so many people suffer for the sins of a few people. Manasseh had even caused the people to err.
Consider the innocent people who have been wounded and killed by drone strikes and conspired surveillance not only overseas but in this country.
Many survivors have resorted to the courts for justice only to be shunned and never given an explanation.
But God knows . . . . and no one will escape accountability for injuring innocent people (Deuteronomy 19: 10).
Blood guiltiness. Whosoever bothers the innocent will not go unpunished.
I had drones constantly fly over my home for months in 2012, from October to December, only to have them quit after some intruder came into my home while I was taking a nap and obviously try to kill me for which I am still suffering today. Who’s responsible?
I have yet to see anyone go to jail or die for the attempted murder and forced drugging.
But I really don’t have to know.
Us victims know God will have vengeance, because God is faithful by His word (Deut. 19: 10).
