God has been dealing with dictators and other ungodly rulers all over the world. He removes them from power at His appointed time. They range from: Adolph Hitler of Germany, Idi Amin of Uganda, Macias Nguema of Equatorial Guinea, Emperor Bokassa of Central African Republic, to Mobutu Sese Seko of Congo DR. When the righteous is in power, the people rejoice: but when the wicked is ruling, the people mourn. Righteousness exalts a nation; sin is a reproach to any people.
Evil rulers have certain things in common. They very rarely die old. Rather, they die suddenly or through protracted sickness. Virtually all evil rulers are members of secret societies. They are instruments in the hands of devils, to wreck havoc in their respective countries. Some of them are cannibals. God Almighty uses persons and circumstances to deal with wicked rulers. Nicolae Ceausescu of Romania was overthrown, tried and executed. Christmas was celebrated in Romania for the first time, shortly after his demise; which he didn’t allow during his years of tyrannical rule.
Macias Nguema of Equatorial Guinea elevated himself to the status of a deity. In 1978, he changed Equatorial Guinea’s motto to read: “There is no other God than Macias Nguema.” He proscribed the Roman Catholic Church, jailed or killed priests. Before the proscription, he declared himself the National Miracle or Unique Miracle, and ordered that at the end of mass, the congregation should chant this, “Forward with Macias. Always with Macias. Never without Macias.”
Almost all the political leaders of the pre-independence era, were murdered by Nguema as he effected a rule dominated by his family members. Real and imagined opponents were killed. His repressive and bloody rule caused a third of the country’s nearly 400,000 population then to flee. He usurped all state power through decrees. He repealed the constitution and assumed all legislative, judicial and executive powers as President for-life. In 1979, even close associates of Nguema had realized that he was mad, and lost faith in him.
He overreached himself when he murdered a family member same year. Then, his nephew and main military adviser, Lt. Col. Teodoro Obiang Nguema successfully overthrew him in a coup. Macias was subsequently captured and tried along with 10 others foe mass murder, massive looting, and treason, by a military tribunal. He and six others were found guilty and sentenced to death. They were executed same day, at Blabich Prison by a firing squad composed of Moroccan troops. He grew up from occult family, like Idi Amin. Macias father was a famed sorcerer. The end of the wicked is destruction. God judged him for his wickedness and arrogance.
Idi Amin Dada was born in 1925 near Koboko, in the West Nile Province of what is now the Republic of Uganda. Deserted by his father at an early age, he was brought up by his mother, a herbalist and diviner. He was a member of the Kakwa ethnic group, a small Islamic tribe that was settled in the region. Idi Amin received little formal education: sources are unclear whether or not he attended the local missionary school. His upbringing by a sorcerer mother, and his very little education, combined to make him a brutal dictator in years ahead. However, in 1946 he joined the King’s African Rifles, KAR (Britain’s colonial African troops), and served in Burma, Somalia, Kenya (during the British suppression of the Mau Mau) and Uganda. Amin developed a reputation for cruelty – he was almost cashiered on several occasions for excessive brutality during interrogations.
He rose through the ranks, reaching sergeant-major before finally being made an effendi, the highest rank possible for a Black African serving in the British army. Amin was also an accomplished sportsman, holding Uganda’s light heavyweight boxing championship from 1951 to 1960. On 25 January 1971, whilst Obote attended a Commonwealth meeting in Singapore, Amin led a coup d’etat and took control of the country, declaring himself president. Popular history recalls Amin’s declared title to be: “His Excellency President for Life, Field Marshal Al Hadji Doctor Idi Amin, VC, DSO, MC, Lord of All the Beasts of the Earth and Fishes of the Sea, and Conqueror of the British Empire in Africa in General and Uganda in Particular.” He made himself almost equal to his creator_ God Almighty. He killed as many as half a million people during his eight-year Ugandan dictatorship. Is it possible to distinguish the man from the monster?
He grew up in the small Islamic tribe known as the Kakwa ethnic group and received no formal education. He was still considered to be a charming and gregarious leader and in 1975 he was voted in as the chair of the Organization of African Unity, with the active connivance of fellow dictators in African countries. This was condemned by the United Nations. Tanzanian troops joined exiled Ugandan nationalists to invade Uganda in 1978, and Amin was driven into exile in Saudi Arabia the following year. By this time, inflation had reached 1,000 per cent in Uganda and the international press became aware of his atrocities. Idi Amin died of multiple organ failure in 2003 and was buried in Saudi Arabia.By the time of his death, he had five wives, three of whom he divorced. Sources differ widely about how many children he had but it is between 30 and 45.
Mr. Amin had been hospitalized and on life support since mid-July. He died from multiple organ failure, Reuters reported. For much of the 1970’s, the beefy, sadistic and telegenic despot had reveled in the spotlight of world attention as he flaunted his tyrannical power, hurled outlandish insults at world leaders and staged pompous displays of majesty. By contrast, his later years were spent in enforced isolation as the Saudi Arabian authorities made sure he maintained a low profile. Mr. Amin, a convert to Islam, his four wives and more than 30 children fled Uganda just ahead of an invading force of Ugandan exiles and Tanzanian troops that overthrew his government. They went first to Libya, and eventually to Saudi Arabia. By the time he had escaped with his life, the devastation he had wreaked lay fully exposed in the scarred ruins of Uganda.
The number of people he caused to be killed has been tabulated by exiles and international human rights groups as close to 300,000 out of a total population of 12 million. Those murdered were mostly anonymous people: farmers, students, clerks and shopkeepers who were shot or forced to bludgeon one another to death by members of death squads, including the chillingly named Public Safety Unit and the State Research Bureau. Along with the military police, these forces numbering 18,000 men were recruited largely from Mr. Amin’s home region. They often chose their victims because they wanted their money, houses or women, or because the tribal groups the victims belonged to were marked for humiliation. But there were also many hundreds of prominent men and women among the dead.
Their killings were public affairs carried out in ways that were meant to attract attention, terrorize the living and convey the message that it was Mr. Amin who wanted them killed. They included cabinet ministers, Supreme Court judges, diplomats, university rectors, educators, prominent Catholic and Anglican churchmen, hospital directors, surgeons, bankers, tribal leaders and business executives. In addition to Ugandans, the dead also included some foreigners, among them Dora Bloch, a 73-year-old woman. She was dragged from a Kampala hospital and killed in 1976 after Israeli commandoes raided Entebbe Airport to rescue 100 other Israelis who along with her had been taken as hostages from a hijacked Air France plane. In other comments he offered to become king of Scotland and lead his Celtic subjects to independence from Britain. He forced white residents of Kampala to carry him on a throne and kneel before him as photographers captured the moment for the world to see. He also ejected Peace Corps volunteers and the United States marines who had guarded the American Embassy in Kampala.
Mr. Amin’s flagrant brutality, coupled with his seemingly erratic behavior and calculating insults, aroused disgust but also fascination far beyond Uganda’s borders. Some African nationalists cheered his insults of Europeans. Radical Arabs, led by Muammar el-Qaddafi of Libya, actively courted him as an ally, and for a time so did the Soviet Union. But there were others who questioned his sanity. Harold Wilson, the leader of the British Labor Party, called him ”mentally unbalanced.” Mr. Kaunda described him as ”a madman, a buffoon.” God Almighty used Tanzanian soldiers, to remove him from power because of his wickedness and pride. The remaining fetish and ill-educated military juntas in African countries, and world all over should know they have appointment with God. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
Bokassa was born not long afterwards, in 1921, at Bobangui in the south- west of the country. He belonged to the Mbaka ethnic group, which had the closest links to the French colonists and which since independence has provided most of the country’s ruling clique. That is a story of the vanity of tyrants. Modern Africa has known dictators more cruel and corrupt than Jean-Bedel Bokassa – Amin was one, Mobutu of Zaire is another – but it has never seen one more vain. He liked nothing more than the limelight, and would do almost anything to turn its glow upon himself.
It is as well in a sense that the country he ruled for 13 years is one of the poorest in the world, so that the lack of means set limits to his excesses. His most glorious moments of ‘folie de grandeur’, however, elevated him firmly on to the world stage. The French avoided offering education to native people, but they were prepared to take them as soldiers and that is what the young Bokassa became. Joining up in 1939, he is said to have taken part in Free French campaigns in Africa, in the Second World War, and he certainly fought in the Indochina War. By 1958 he was an officer, and as his country moved towards independence he became involved in the creation of the Central African Army.
At 11pm on New Year’s Eve, 1965, troops loyal to Bokassa and to another Indochina veteran, Alexandre Banza, sealed off the centre of Bangui and took charge in a classic African coup. The head of the gendarmerie, who presented the principal threat to the plotters, was arrested and never seen again. It began well, and there is some evidence that, initially, Bokassa intended to put the country’s affairs in order and then step aside. His early actions, which included steps to improve meat supplies in Bangui and the introduction of bus services, were popular, but before long he succumbed to the paranoia and greed that seizes almost all dictators.
In 1969 Banza was arrested on suspicion of plotting a coup, then tortured and executed. Bokassa, unwilling to trust his own troops, persuaded the French to send troops to support him. Meanwhile the economic rape of Central Africa had begun, as the president learned to “privatise” public enterprises, usually monopolies, by simply transferring them to his personal ownership. And he learnt to spend. A country with total government revenues roughly equivalent to those of a large Western department store suddenly found itself trying to pay for a private hunting estate for the head of state, a runway to serve it and a presidential airliner to land on it. There were coup attempts, real as well as imagined. In February 1976 Bokassa narrowly escaped an attack at Bangui airport for which his own son-in-law was summarily executed.
Months later his son Georges was accused of plotting and fled to France. Then in December 1976 Bokassa announced that the country was to be an empire, he was to be emperor and his favourite son (by his favourite wife) was his heir. The affair was pure pantomime, boycotted by foreign governments but generously attended by the world’s press. Quite how much was spent on it, on banquets, Belgian steeds and triumphal arches, will never be known, but it was now clear that the man was mad. Fittingly, it was personal greed which provoked the denouement.
On 18 January, street protests began in Bangui when he decreed that all schoolchildren and all students at Jean-Bedel Bokassa University must wear uniforms – only one supplier of uniforms existed, and it was owned by the Empress Catherine, Bokassa’s wife. Troops fired on the crowds and dozens, perhaps hundreds, were killed, but the unrest, mostly in the form of school strikes, continued until April, when Bokassa, now in a state of fury, ordered a round-up of the troublemakers. Mostly boys aged between 12 and 16, they were hauled off to Ngaragba Prison on the edge of Bangui. There followed a night of appalling violence in which Bokassa personally played a leading part.
Children were beaten to death, tortured, stoned and suffocated in overcrowded cells. The final death toll was about 100, and a few of the victims were as young as eight years old. The massacre was revealed by Amnesty International and the details were quickly confirmed by an international commission of inquiry which the French forced Bokassa to accept. Giscard d’Estaing ordered a coup and David Dacko, whom Bokassa had toppled 13 years earlier, returned to power. The rest of Bokassa’s life, spent in the Ivory Coast, France and finally in his native country, was devoted to the pursuit of publicity, which he used mainly in attempts to embarrass France. In 1986 he surprised everyone by returning to Bangui, where he was tried for his crimes.
Few fallen African dictators have been so fortunate in their treatment by the people they oppressed. The case was conducted in public and with dignity, restraint and thoroughness, and a limited number of specific crimes – half a dozen specific murders in the years 1966-78 and the Ngaragba massacre – were examined and proven. (The most famous charge against Bokassa, that he was a cannibal, was dropped for lack of evidence. There are grounds for believing that the whole story of human meat kept in a freezer, which circulated first in the days after he was toppled, is a myth.) Bokassa was condemned to death, but the sentence was commuted to 20 years’ imprisonment and he was eventually released three years ago.
The experience did not reform or humble him: his first act on being freed was to apply, in the name of Bokassa the First, to stand for president. The truth about Bokassa, for all his antics, is not amusing but squalid. He was a military dictator of low intelligence, but some cunning who took a poor country and over 13 years, exploited its few assets relentlessly for his own grotesque advantage, ultimately leaving it in a state of anarchy and ruin.
Mobutu Sese Seko, Zaire’s longtime dictator and the last of a generation of Cold War rulers, who grew fabulously rich by providing a bulwark against communism, died in exile Sunday in Rabat, Morocco, after a long battle with prostate cancer. He was 66. Having held Zaire together for 31 years, Mobutu was chased from power in May after a seven-month rebellion led by a lifelong opponent, Laurent Desire Kabila.
Throughout his rule, Mobutu swore that he would never be known as a former president, but only as the late president. In another characteristic boast, he often said that before him there was no Zaire, and that his country would not survive him either. If Kabila’s army of foot soldiers put a lie to Mobutu’s first claim, history ironically proved the second boast true. Hours after Mobutu’s own mutinous army fired on the cargo plane that he had used to flee the country from his opulent palace in his native village, Gbadolite, the victorious rebel leader proclaimed himself president. In his first official act, Kabila renamed the country the Congo, restoring the name used by Belgian colonists and changed by Mobutu in 1971.
Mobutu’s panicked flight into exile was merely the beginning of a humiliating end for a man whose almost constant presence at the front and center of the African political stage had turned him into one of the world’s most vainglorious leaders. France, Mobutu’s close ally until the bitter end refused to give him asylum. Similarly, Togo, a West African state ruled by another longtime dictator, Gnassingbe Eyadema, asked Mobutu and his large entourage of family and aides to leave the country just days after the exiled leader landed there. During his long public life, Mobutu rose from being a lowly colonial police informer, journalist and army sergeant to become chief of staff of his country’s armed forces, military dictator and ultimately president.
He changed his name from Joseph Desire Mobutu to Mobutu Sese Seko Kuku Ngbendu waza Banga, which, according to most translations means “the all-powerful warrior who, because of his endurance and inflexible will to win, will go from conquest to conquest leaving fire in his wake. According to an alternate translation, the name meant: the rooster that watches over all the hens. Likewise, the name Congo was changed to Zaire, an old Portuguese corruption of a local name for the country’s greatest river. Similarly, as all European-derived place names were replaced with African names, the capital, Leopoldville, was renamed Kinshasa.
Mobutu, then called Joseph Mobutu, seized power in a coup in 1965, deposing the government of Patrice Lumumba, the country’s first prime minister after independence. Mobutu changed the country’s name to Zaire in 1971. Known for his trademark leopard-skin hat, he plundered and looted his way to an estimated $5bn (£3.1bn), with homes in Switzerland and France. The leopard skin served as talisman to allegedly protect him from bullet shots, and other dangers. The so-called leopard skin, couldn’t protect him from the protracted cancer illness, that held him down for years; which eventually killed him. They that trust in idols and charms shall be disappointed and ashamed.
The Zairian dictator was the most extreme, amassing one of the world’s largest private fortunes, a process that continued even after his country’s economy had begun a prolonged nose dive. Mobutu, who collected luxurious mansions around the world, enjoyed traveling on extended vacations and going on lavish shopping trips to destinations like Disneyworld or Paris with large numbers of relatives and courtiers in specially chartered Boeing 747 and Concorde jets. At home, he converted his northern village of Gbadolite into a gaudy, white marble retreat that was often called the “Versailles of the Jungle,” but in fact was modeled after the Belgian monarchy’s Laeken Palace. Over time, this extravagance earned the country’s self-styled “redeemer” unflattering comparisons with King Leopold II of Belgium, whose wanton exploitation of the Congo — not as a colony, but as his own private royal property — became a subject of Joseph Conrad’s 1902 novel, “The Heart of Darkness.”
At independence in 1960, Mobutu was called on by the new Prime Minister, Patrice Lumumba, to serve as his army chief of staff. To avoid arrest or assassination, Lumumba sought refuge at the U.N. mission in Leopoldville, which for over two months was surrounded by Mobutu’s soldiers. Lumumba escaped from the capital on Nov. 27, 1960, in a bid to reach his loyalists in the northeastern city of Stanleyville, now Kisangani, but was quickly captured. The deposed prime minister was tortured by Mobutu’s agents before being flown to Katanga to be handed over to secessionist leader, Moise Tshombe, Lumumba’s sworn enemy. Lumumba was killed in mysterious circumstances, and his body was never found.
Back in control, Mobutu abolished party politics and for the next several years worked gradually at establishing his own uncontested authority. Mobutu ran unopposed in the presidential election, in which a green ballot paper symbolizing “progress” was to be used by voters supporting the incumbent. A red ballot paper, symbolizing “chaos” was, in theory, intended for those who did not wish to see Mobutu elected. After the voting, the government announced that only 157 voters had opposed the president. With his carefully engineered election, Mobutu had reached the height of his powers and now virtually ruled as an absolute monarch. Under the latest version of a constitution that he had repeatedly tinkered with, the president was declared “the embodiment of the nation,” and his decisions were placed “outside the scope of the various articles of the constitution that limit, to a certain degree, the powers of the president.” After appearing willing to bow to the decisions of the national conference, however, Mobutu did everything he could to frustrate the body, including printing huge amounts of money to buy off the votes of its participants, and ordering attacks by army hit squads on his opponents.
Himself died of protracted illness of cancer, leaving behind billion of dollars of his ill-gotten wealth. God said, “As the partridge sits on eggs, and hatches them not; so he that gets riches, and not by right, shall leave them in the midst of his days, and at his end shall be a fool”—Jeremiah 17: 11. Dictators are human agents of Satan. Satan uses them to fulfill his three cardinal objectives: to steal, kill and destroy. Dictators and other wicked rulers seem to forget that they will one face the judgement of God. “Then shall he say to those at the left handside, depart from me you cursed into the everlasting fire prepared for Satan and his angels”—Matthew 25:41.
“The Lord is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked. The Lord has His way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of His feet. He rebukes the sea and makes it dry, and dries up all the rivers. Bashan languishes and Carmel; and the flowers of Lebanon languish. The mountains quake at Him, and the hills melt, and the earth is burned at His presence, yea the world, and all that dwell therein. Who can stand before His indignation? And who can abide in the fierceness of His anger? His fury is poured out like fire; and the rocks are thrown down by Him. The Lord is good; a stronghold in the day of trouble, and He knows them that trust in Him“ –Nahum 1:3-7.
Sometime ago, God dealt with the land of Egypt and made a nonsense of their idols and deities. He turned the Egyptian rivers into blood; and commanded frogs, and lice, to fill the land at different stage of His afflictions on the land. The LORD plagued their cattle, and killed many of the people; including first born of every family and animals. Swarms of locust were brought by Him to evade the land. God brought darkness upon the land of Egypt for three days. Finally, He executed the last punishment on Egyptians. He said, “I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the first born in the land of Egypt , both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgement: I am the LORD—Exodus 12:12. At a stage the magicians and other sorcerers ran away.
Though, the event occurred longtime ago, the historic facts are there. It cannot be controverted by anybody. Before God dealt with them, there was this issue of killing of every male Hebrew child born in Egypt. It went on for decades among other atrocities. It looked as if God had forsaken the earth; that he couldn’t do anything about it. At the appointed time judgement came. Multitude of Egyptian chariots and soldiers were drowned in the red sea. God Almighty judged Pharaoh of Egypt and land. Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance. Behold he takes up the isles as a very little thing. All nations before him are as nothing; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and vanity. And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and he does according to his will in the army of heaven; and among the inhabitants of the earth. And none can stay his hand, or say unto him, what are you doing? He removes whoever he wanted removed from whatever position.
There was a time the LORD destroyed the world with flood, because of the evils inhabitants of the earth. It rained consistently for forty days and forty nights. Only several persons were saved in the prepared; Noah and his family. Later, the LORD made a pledge not to destroy lives again through flood. Appearance of rainbow is a token of that pledge. God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah. He rained fire and brimstone on the inhabitants due to their evil ways. Among them were gays. God Almighty spoke the universe and the elements in it into existence: the sun, stars, earth, living creatures, galaxies, etc.
We are told by scientists that there are over 500 million stars in the sky; each of them bigger than the earth. The least of the stars is bout thirteen times bigger than the earth. The solar system, which the earth comprises of, is under the milky-way galaxy. There are billions of galaxies. The earth is a very tiny part of the universe. The earth is to the universe, what a grain of sand is to a heap of sand. Then, the LORD that created the eyes, shall He not see? He who created the ears, shall He not hear. God looks at the people of the earth, to behold their deeds, and to pay everyone according to his deeds. The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom and knowledge. By the fear of God, men depart from evil.
Common sense should teach us that there must be someone responsible for the orderliness of the whole creation: the solar system, sunrise and sunset, oceans, different kinds of living creatures, and so on. Our God is omnipotent, omniscience and omnipresent. The time Jehovah will display His awesome power and wrath in the world is fast approaching. He has appointed a day in which to judge the people of the earth. During the time of tribulations a lot awesome events will occur. THE GREATEST BATTLE The ‘mother’ of all battles will take place during tribulation period.
“I will also gather all nations and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they scattered among the nations, and parted my land” –Joel 3-2. The greatest battle, (battle of Armageddon), will be between: the beast, kings of the earth, and their armies on one side; and Jesus with the army of heaven on the other side. The beast will lead the earthly armies: while Jesus Christ will lead the heavenly armies. Jesus and his selected army will utterly destroy the enemy forces. Firstly, unclean spirits like frogs will come out of the mouths of the dragon, false prophet and beast.
“For they are the spirits of the devils working miracles which go forth unto the kings of the earth, and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty “– Rev 16:14. God will not allow the nations to conquer Jerusalem in battle. Initially, the enemy forces will begin to attack the city: house rifled, women ravished, and half the city shall go into captivity. And the rest of the people shall not be cut off from the city. Then, Jesus will lead the army of heaven to defend Jerusalem. They shall descend from heaven riding on white horses.
Christ shall be clothed with a vesture dipped in blood, while the rest of his armies will be clothed in fine lines, white and clean Out of his mouth will go forth a sharp sword to smite nations in war. He shall rule them with a rod of iron, and tread on the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God –Rev 19: 14-15. His eyes will be like flaming fire! “Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. And his feet shall stand in that day upon the Mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east.
And the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south” –Zech. 14:3-4. In that day, the least in the Lord’s army shall be as strong as king David, the man of war. And the house of David shall be as angel of the Lord before them. “And this shall be the plague where with the Lord will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem. Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongues shall consume away in their mouth.
And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult from the Lord shall be among them: and they shall lay hold everyone on the hand of his neighbour, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbour“– Zech. 14:12-13. The Lord shall confuse the enemies to kill each other. “And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, said the Lord God: everyman’s sword shall be against his brother. And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood: and I will rain upon him, and upon his hands, and upon the many people that are with him, an everflowing rain; and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone—Ezekiel. 38:21-22. Their carcasses shall litter the ground.
And they that dwell in the cities, shall use their weapons in place of firewood. Their shields, bucklers, bows, arrows, and spears; shall be used as firewood for seven years. So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut down any out of the forests: for they shall burn the weapons, with fire and, they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them, said the Lord God (Ezekiel 39: 9-10). And it shall come to pass in that day; that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon him whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one that is in bitterness for his first born.
In that day, shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon (Josiah) in the valley of Megiddon– Zech. 12:9-11. An angel shall stand in the sun, and will cry with a loud voice saying; to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, beast of the field, come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God. So that you may eat the flesh of kings, captains, mighty men, horses and men, both free and bond, small and great –Rev 19:17-20. It will take seven months, to bury the remaining carcasses and cleanse the land. By this, God will punish the ungodly nations, for scattering the Jews, and parting their land. As well, He will use the battle to display His awesome power! God Almighty, the Creator of the whole universe, has absolute power and control over His creation. Of course, He has control over natural disasters like: earth quakes, landslides, hurricane, excessive flood, etc. He reigns in the kingdoms of men.
The LORD is Alpha and Omega: He has no beginning or ending. Eyes of the LORD, go to and fro the earth to show himself strong to those whose hearts are perfect toward him. Righteousness exalts a nation; sin is a reproach to any people. The LORD God lifts up nations that obey Him; and brings down the ones that rebel against Him. Ungodly and idolatrous countries are more prone to natural disasters like: earthquakes, landslide, hurricane, excessive flooding, etc. God cuts them short for forsaking him. The founding fathers of America like, President George Washington, and Abraham Lincoln, respected God. And He blessed the country. This is the time for you to reconcile with Almighty God, your creator.
