Boring. Same ole’ same ole’. People falling asleep.
So this was a first for me. The Halls of Congress for once kept me waiting for his next words.
Rather sad isn’t it? It took a foreign leader to get my attention.
Yet, this man is no ordinary leader. I believe he is called by God for such a time as this.
He possesses the qualities of a leader; firm, fearless, factual. His charismatic personality roared through the air like a lion. (Katy Perry) His stance was nothing short of a man sure of his position and beliefs. His words carried an olive branch with a sword attached.
Ignoring the political rhetoric here was a behind the scenes methodology of God.
Kim Clement prophesied in 2010 that Benjamin Netanyahu would one day stand before the Joint sessions of Congress and speak to the world.
The Jewish Festival of Purim landed at this time he was speaking. He referred to it in his speech. Queen Esther put her life on the line to save the Jewish people from the evil, conniving Haman. Ancient Persia where this occurred is today modern Iran. History repeating itself?
But what of the outcome?
Mordecai, Esther’s cousin and leader of the Jews angered Haman by refusing to bow to him. Hhhhhhmmmmmmm……..
Do you see what I see? Do you hear what I hear?
Mordecai spoke to Congress Tuesday. He did not and has not bowed down to the evil confronting his homeland nor has he bowed to our government. In fact, he determined that if we would not listen, Israel would go it alone.
Esther broke protocol. She was not allowed into the King’s court without his invitation. But she approached him anyway putting herself in danger for the mission. He accepted her request I think because he was so curious.
Speaker Boehner asked the Prime Minister to come and speak; not the President. He broke protocol for the mission. And by the crowd I would say it was the right thing to do.
My conclusion of this historical, Biblical meeting is the same outcome as it was for the Jews during Esther’s time.
God will preserve his people.
God will (is) expose(ing) those who do not support his people.
God will bring the truth to the forefront punishing those who do not support his people.
And like Esther and Mordecai’s belief in God stood and faced the devil, God received the glory.
History all over again.
And one more little note where God tied in a treat to the Prime Minister’s speech.
What happened 84 years ago from March 3?
