What Tyrants Have Not Learned From History!
The Bible is no mere book, but a Living Creature, with a power that conquers all that oppose it. - Napoleon Bonaparte
On a daily basis, America's biblical and constitutional foundation is under hostile attack by atheist and homosexual groups that are being used as a political battering ram in an attempt to usher in communism.
For example, an atheist group filed a brief on Feb. 15 fighting the federal government's motion in support of a permanent shrine to Jesus in the Flathead National Forest. Outrageous!
(I find that these groups operate on the defense rather than the offense, falling into the very holes they themselves have dug (Psalm 7:15).)
Another example: Outgoing Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta has defied the Defense of Marriage Act and unilaterally issued a directive stating that the U.S. military will now extend certain benefits to unmarried domestic partners that were formerly reserved for married couples—but will only do so if the domestic partners certify in writing to the Department of Defense that they are of the same sex. Absurd!
The question is, who has been responsible for encouraging the onslaught of attacks against America's Christian heritage and constitutional republic? You need not look any further than Obama and his vile minions for the answer.
Scripture comes to my aid: "The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted" (Psalm 12:8).
Barack Hussein Obama has been labeled the "Architect of a New America" by Time magazine, and Newsweek featured him as the "First Gay President." Obama is also known as America's most biblically hostile president. He has placed himself above We the People time and time again, as if to say we derive our rights from Obama instead of God.
Day by day, Obama's tyrannical measures are beginning to take shape. And what should America expect from one who is at war with God?
It is clear to see the narcissism of this president, but just as obvious is the hypocrisy and lack of duty from the professed church and the modern government (leaven of the Pharisees and of Herod, Mark 8:15). After all, leaders will only do what the people let them get away with.
Theologian John Calvin said, "And ye, O peoples, to whom God gave the liberty to choose your own magistrates, see to it that ye do not forfeit this favor by electing to the positions of highest honor, rascals and enemies of God."
Study the Past
At the entrance of the National Archives in Washington, D.C., you will see a monument stating, "Study the Past."
Why study the past? Our forefathers suggested this so we might learn from history, so it does not repeat itself.
History has shown time and time again that when a nation departs from God, there will be a tyrant in the midst attempting to move into His position. Then follows devastation and massive loss of life. This is what God warned would happen to nations that refuse keep His commandments (Leviticus 26:21).
God commands us to go back to the old paths "where is the good way" (Jeremiah 6:16), not to dare His justice by taking on the new paths.
Here are ten lessons men have learned from history:
Indeed, America is emulating those who have not learned from history. If you do not learn from the lessons history has to teach, then history will repeat itself.
History also teaches a lesson to tyrants who are at war with God and attempt to usurp His law (Isaiah 14:13-15). What man forgets, God will not.
What did Bonaparte say? Those who oppose God and His Word will be conquered – and that is exactly what history teaches us.
Let me show you the little-known history of those who dared to crucify Christ, kill His apostles and behead John the Baptist. Let me also show you what happened to tyrant Mussolini, French Queen Marie Antoinette, godless Voltaire and the vain Senate of Rome:
