They think you are exactly like them

Yesterday I published a blog with the title “You thought I was exactly like you,” a quote from psalm 50. Last night terrorists, breaking away from a rally called by President Donald Trump, who spoke at the rally, said he would lead them to the Capitol building, and praised them afterwards, broke into the Capitol building and ransacked a number of rooms including the Speaker’s office. Where were the police? Police officers let them in and fist bumped them on the way in.

I found the Jesus saves banner, which stood out being black on yellow amid all the red white and blue, to be a significant statement, these terrorists think God is exactly like them.

Just as Asaph prophesied against the people of about 1000 BC for going against the law of God, I repeat that prophest against the terrorists who think they were doing the will pf God in Washington DC last night.

16 But to the wicked person, God says:

‘What right have you to recite my laws
    or take my covenant on your lips?
17 You hate my instruction
    and cast my words behind you.
18 When you see a thief, you join with him;
    you throw in your lot with adulterers.
19 You use your mouth for evil
    and harness your tongue to deceit.
20 You sit and testify against your brother
    and slander your own mother’s son.
21 When you did these things and I kept silent,
    you thought I was exactly like you.
But I now arraign you
    and set my accusations before you.

Psalm 50 16-21, NIV UK

The good news is the news this morning is that Joe Biden has been confirmed by Congress, following the constitution of the USA as the next President. Not so good news is that up to the inauguration of Biden on 20th January this year, Trump, who four years swore to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, remains in office.

  1. Although v21 relates to people thinking they are like God, I am aware that some of the most dangerous aspects of this are people allowing abuse of power and twisting of the truth to go unchallenged. Some Republicans are now coming out and acknowledging the truth.

    1. Thanks John,

      This morning’s news is that Trump has backtracked and condemned the insurrection that he incited, and has admitted he lost the election. But who knows what tomorrow will bring? He is showing an increasing tendency towards instability. As for the Republicans, they have met to consider invoking the 25th (I think) amendment which would remove Trump from office.

      Pray for America. Trump has not only exposed an aspect of American culture which was always there, but also empowered it.
