You said, ‘I am forever— the eternal queen!’ But you did not consider these things or reflect on what might happen. “Now then, listen, you lover of pleasure, lounging in your security and saying to yourself, ‘I am, and there is none besides me. I will never be a widow or suffer the loss of children.’ Both of these will overtake you in a moment, on a single day: loss of children and widowhood. They will come upon you in full measure, in spite of your many sorceries and all your potent spells. You have trusted in your wickedness and have said, ‘No one sees me.’ Your wisdom and knowledge mislead you when you say to yourself, ‘I am, and there is none besides me.’Disaster will come upon you, and you will not know how to conjure it away. A calamity will fall upon you that you cannot ward off with a ransom; a catastrophe you cannot foresee will suddenly come upon you.“Keep on, then, with your magic spells and with your many sorceries, which you have labored at since childhood. Perhaps you will succeed, perhaps you will cause terror. All the counsel you have received has only worn you out! Let your astrologers come forward, those stargazers who make predictions month by month, let them save you from what is coming upon you.Surely they are like stubble; the fire will burn them up. They cannot even save themselves from the power of the flame. These are not coals for warmth; this is not a fire to sit by.That is all they are to you— these you have dealt with and labored with since childhood. All of them go on in their error; there is not one that can save you. Isaiah 47:7-15 NIV
I cannot help but see the parallel in this commentary to the #WHidiot. Was it not him who said, “The world is a disaster and I and I alone can fix it?”
Well, mr. big mouth–FIX IT! But of course he can’t because in order to “fix” something, one must first understand what is wrong and needs fixing.
Would a responsible, rational, logical person take their car to a repair shop and simply tell them to “fix” something before they determine what is wrong with it?
Most would not, but it would appear that the armchair president has sat back determining all the ills (for years) about the country and world without knowing how the game is played–not knowing how to diagnose the ill before prescribing the solution. And now, that he is the quarterback–he’s standing in the midst of the playing field, without knowing who his teammates are and instead of trusting them those on the same side (our allies and Congress), he alienates them with foolish rhetoric and twitter rants.
Most people in a time of uncertainty about the direction they should take would take time to reflect about all the circumstances and consider all the possible options. Not our idiot–he just plows into unknown territory without a thought and causes the entire world to sit back and reflect about how we got here. I’m sure, many other leaders are wondering what was wrong with those foolish Americans who elected such an imbecile who puts his children in positions of leadership when they have as little experience as he does. When you want something done right, shouldn’t you position those who know how to do it? Talk about a slippery slope with the nepotism. I guess when we get bombed by–I don’t–N. Korea, Syria, Russia etc.–I guess he’ll say it was kids fault since he’s known for throwing people under the bus.
Well, world leaders–so are we–the ones who didn’t vote for him. And hopefully those who did will have time to honestly reflect about their decision and do something to correct the error before it’s too late for all of us–Like call their representatives in Congress and demand they do their job. War is looming and our pitiful GOP are sitting back doing nothing out of misplaced loyalty to the idiot-in-chief–mostly because they’re afraid if they say or do anything to cross him; he’ll expose their role in the election fiasco–all of their complicity in the coordinated effort to interfere with a fair and legal election.
Those are my thoughts on the subject for today; I’m just spending time reflecting–and praying that someone in Congress will stand up and take charge of the situation–because they are the only ones who can–at this moment. Since they (GOP) claim to be the party of family values and Christianity, I don’t see any reflection of Christ in what they’re doing, but I see much of the reflection of Satan’s character in much of what they do.
