11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. 12 But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep. 13 The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep. 14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine. 15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep. 16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd. (John 10:11-16 KJV)
In the political void, the politician is the shepherd elected by the sheep to do their bidding and protect them from whatever may attempt to undo their tranquility. I watched the funeral of President George H.W. Bush and noticed what I have said in a blog a few times; the present President does not know or have anything to do with God. I saw this in his body language, non-singing, non-greetings and overall mannerisms. He is not the good shepherd but a hireling. As I have said many times, he is for himself and not for the sheep.
For a while, he is aware of many hammers coming down upon him. As the hammers are falling, he is running for his life and the sheep will be left to fight for themselves. The God-fearing people that are for him must save themselves and see things as they really are, seek God and repent. This is the season to celebrate the birth of Christ which make it a very good time to return, yes return, to Christ, God.
11 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. 12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. (Romans 13:11-12 KJV)
Although some of the lovers of our present President are rethinking their allegiance, it is not enough. They are not being a good neighbor, trying to help others, but running for the hills while they leave behind chaos. However, those that are left behind better awaken because this flagitious situation is quickly coming to an end. When the end arrives, everyone on the evil side will be caught up and cast into the fiery pit along with the person originally sought.
The hireling is attempting to outrun culpability for the things he has said and done. God knows what has been said and done and He knows what will be said and done. God will avenge for the leading His sheep astray. God will avenge the suffering of His sheep. In His own time, He will make His move and the hireling, with his underlings, are doomed, on earth as well as in Heaven.
12 What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good? 13 Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile. 14 Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it. 15 The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry. (Psalm 34:12-15 KJV)
If the hireling wants to experience many more good days of life he must depart from evil, seek peace as well as pursue it. From what I have seen, I don’t believe he can do it. The narcissism in him will not allow it. It has been with him for so long that it is imbedded forever in him. May God have mercy on his soul and the soul of his followers.
