RADIANT STORY: Why politics mostly turn bloody

Published

on

Therefore rejoice ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! For the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

 

Re 12:12 Right from the time Satan was sent down to the earth, he has always been bewitching the men and women with insatiable lust for power- the same of offence that made God sent him and his followers packing from heaven. So in the course of power game, devil would do whatever within his power in influencing men and women to spare no evil in so as get upper hand over another person. From the Bible days there had always been the fear among king makers.

 

Take for example Prophet Samuel had to express fear for his life when God asked him to anoint David to replace King Saul. And because God had always understands the wickedness of the heart of men, he allowed the no erstwhile nonsense prophet to apply some diplomacy in the mission of anointing David when David was still on throne. And Samuel said, how can I go? if Saul hear it, he will kill me.

 

And the LORD said, Take an heifer with thee, and say, I am come to sacrifice to the LORD. 1Sam 16:2 And when Saul came to know that David was God’s anointed, he used the entire life to fight tooth and nail to retain the kingdom for even his unborn generation. Just imagine: King Saul who the Bible recorded that he had trait of unparallel of meekness when Prophet Samuel first revealed him as anointed him as God’s chosen first King of Israel (1 Samuel 10&11). But hardly had the man got to the throne, that he started seeking the life David- God’s anointed. Can you now standerstand why it is possible for someone who was not initially interested in politics to be later power drunk? To be continued.
