Who's Da Boss?

“6 “He does not keep the wicked alive, But gives justice to the afflicted.
7 “He does not withdraw His eyes from the righteous; But with kings on the throne He has seated them forever, and they are exalted.
8 “And if they are bound in fetters, And are caught in the cords of affliction,
9 Then He declares to them their work And their transgressions, that they have magnified themselves.
10 “He opens their ear to instruction, And commands that they return from evil.
11 “If they hear and serve Him, They will end their days in prosperity And their years in pleasures.
12 “But if they do not hear, they shall perish by the sword And they will die without knowledge.” Job 36:6-12

I don’t care how they spell his name. Right here, right now, we have an example of this passage from Job being played out.
Muammar el-Qaddafi. The ‘king’ of Libya for decades, who made himself rich while keeping his countrymen in virtu slavery/poverty.
He magnified himself, indeed. We’ve known of his despicable me-ness for decades, and the world did nothing. He was a ‘protected animal’-an enemy of Israel who has had a part in the gentlemen’s agreement that Israel and the Jews are the cause of all the world’s problems. Membership is shrinking, one despot at a time.
el-Qaddafi is now sending his military to kill Libyans who are crying out for justice after decades of affliction.
He’s so much gone and good riddance. God gives justice to the afflicted. I would love to see a Cuban uprising against the Castro brothers regime. And Notrh Korea. China. Iran.
Venezuela. Wherever people are in chains at the mercy of some tinpot egocentric’s whims as to whether they will live or die. But enough about Obama.
Ask Hitler, (if you can find him in hell): “Hey Adolph! How does God reward tyrants?”
And Hitler, (who was, in fact, part Jewish) would probably say. “Read Job chapter 36.”

Sometimes I have too much fun with these posts.
I am not making fun of the situation.
People are dying at the hands of el-Qaddafi's military. This is not funny. This will not go unpunished.
Christians have been outspoken against the el-Qaddafis, the Husseins, the Saudi princes and all manner of Muslims for ever.
Deaf ears. Nobody cared. No one has paid any attention as Christians and Jews have declared Israel's right to exist.
Get on the right side of the future, friends. Find in God's Word what He approves of, and do it.
