George W Bush and Bible Prophecy
Is the Creator of this universe concerned about political personalities? When the Bible says that the God of this world "puts down one and sets up another" (Psalm 75:7), does it actually mean that not one President, King, Dictator or Prime Minister can win election, appointment, or a mutiny, unless the Creator chooses? Absolutely! Our Heavenly Father is the Sovereign Master of this world. This world is on a precise course with Eternity. Prophecy is history written in advance, and each actor on the world stage has an unquestionable role. Six billion living souls are each known by the true God of this Universe. That is why the idea of many gods being all equal and somehow being the same being is insanity.
Each nation on this earth is known to God. "The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof." (I Cor 10:26) America is not an accident nation. Some wild-eyed religious persons have called America, Babylon by some kind of similar proximity to the original Babylon. Such thinking is prophetic nonsense. American citizens have many failures as does all of the human race. Sodom and Gomorrah would have been spared judgment if God could have found ten righteous individuals. We are not seen by the presence of the wicked crowd but the presence of the great number of Godly Saints. The wicked in our nation are going to be judged with exactly the same standard as the wicked in Russia or any other country.
As a Nation, our God has a task for us, and one of the most important tasks is Israel and its future. We will continue to be a sheep nation in the sense of caring for Israel and standing beside her in preparation for the Kingdom of God on this earth. Remember Jerusalem will be the capital of the universe during the Millennium Reign of Jesus Christ.
Presently, we are eliminating Israel’s enemies in Iraq. This is important because Iraq will be the center of the New World Order and Israel will make a treaty with the false messiah. That seven-year treaty will be broken in the middle of the seven years. Jesus said it like this, "When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand)…"For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be."(Matthew 24:15;21) There has to be a truce between the government of Israel and the government of Iraq for this treaty to be enacted and then broken.
Who is the President best fitted to defend Israel, to conquer the enemies in Iraq and to set the stage for prophecy? President George W. Bush is the only man. Watch his steady hand over his White House staff, his calm response to incredible enemies, and his unfailing faith that he is appointed for the task. A "Newsweek" article came in the mail today entitled, "The Gospel according to George". The article proved that even his worst enemies see something in him they admire. Have you ever read of someone that was appointed in the political world that was perfect? Religious people are some of his worst critics, but that’s always the case.
Compare John Kerry to George Bush. You never see the kind of appearance in George Bush’s face that you see in John Kerry’s. Remember the old additive, "If someone says one thing with their mouth and something different with their eyes, you always believe their eyes." John Kerry has the eyes of a wimp. His eyes are not just sleepy eyes, they are wimpy eyes. That’s the reason he flip flops on every issue. Remember the famous line, "I voted for the war in Iraq before I voted against it." His earlier days of criticism of our soldiers in Vietnam is a picture of a wimp that could not handle the hard job of defending America. Before November, the Democrats will regret they chose him as their candidate.
George W. Bush has made hard choices over and over since January 20, 2001. He does not equivocate when the going gets rough. He does not join his enemies in name-calling that destroys the dignity of his office as President. The relentless attack on him for over six months has produced nothing but confusion of face in one attacker after another. There is a steady sense that he is indeed the kind of President you want if the next terrorist attack occurs. President Clinton saw almost every crisis as the work of a conspiracy of conservatives while President Bush sees our enemy as enemies of America.
Bible Prophecy is unalterable truth set in the halls of heaven. It cannot vary. Israel is going to be safe until the middle of this Great Tribulation but will survive the relentless attack of the Antichrist. Iraq must be in place to become the center of the Antichrist Kingdom. Israel will have America as her defender even when the Antichrist seeks to eliminate every Jew from the face of the earth. The terrorists that claim Allah as their god will help lead this campaign of Jewish eradication, but they will fail.
Every movement in the Middle East has great Biblical and prophetic significance. There have been so many false date setters and so much religious hype that the powerful prophetic signs at present are ignored by most of the church world. If prophecy fulfillment means anything, our world is on track for the greatest events of human history. There is no way that the present alignment of nations could be an accident. A Biblical prophecy almost totally unknown by Bible teachers is that the Antichrist will be an Assyrian and that an Assyrian nation will develop at the end of God’s judgment. This nation will be one of the three major nations in the Middle East during the millennial reign. The movements in Iraq have already caused the ancient Assyrians that number in the thousands and spread over many nations to start yearning for their own independent self-government and homeland. There has been no self-governed nation of Assyria for over two thousand years, yet the Creator Jehovah has preserved this ancient culture for His End Time plan.
God’s action in His universe always uses the personalities He has chosen. The great challenge for each of us is to be available to Him. It’s exciting to have spiritual eyes capable of watching prophecy being fulfilled. Let His Holy Spirit make you wise in the Scripture. We must help every Bible-believing Christian and church to understand the nearness of His coming.
