I by no means claim to be a political blogger or leader. I am a minister of the Gospel, who will sometimes comment on politics when I see a spiritual implication that I can’t ignore. I believe in presenting the word of God and allowing people to be led His Spirit in making up their minds to make the right decision. But, certain current events, decisions have led me to see some common behavior with leaders of the past that quite frankly has me concerned. I would be irresponsible to not mention it so my readers for consideration and prayer.
What did biblical kings do to even their blood relatives who they felt a threat to their throne?
2 Chronicles 21:4 (NKJV)
4 Now when Jehoram was established over the kingdom of his father, he strengthened himself and killed all his brothers with the sword, and also others of the princes of Israel.
What have modern 20th and 21st century dictators do to those who opposed them?
Be careful! What would a leader in a democracy who attacks his own supporters who disagree with him or her do to them if he were a dictator?
Be careful when a leader clearly doesn’t display or walk in the Fruit of the Spirit…
Galatians 5:22-23 (NKJV)
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.
Be careful of those (especially those in the Body of Christ) who refuse to see it or make excuses for their behavior because an unrepentant, arrogant dangerous leader can never do damage alone.
