Two heads better than one in no.10 and Laura Bush

text size A A A

Mr David Cameron, 43, becomes the youngest premier since Lord Liverpool almost 200 years ago, and the first Conservative in No 10 since John Major departed 13 years ago. This achievement comes only after agreeing a deal with the Liberal Democrats to lead Britain's first coalition government since the Second World War. Mr Cameron's administration will be quite far from the one he had planned. He promised there would be "hard and difficult work" ahead and said his administration would focus on "rebuilding family, rebuilding community, above all, rebuilding responsibility in our country". The Government will be the first coalition since Winston Churchill's wartime administration 70 years ago. After falling 20 seats short of a majority, Mr Cameron, we understand, was forced to accept a deal to lead a coalition government with the Liberal Democrats.

Alliances have been contrived out of sympathy like in Joshua chapter 9 when the Gibeonites deceived Israel into a treaty which guaranteed their protection. Other coalitions were for survival, progress of trade, protection and/or gain resulting almost always in "spiritual prostitution" which birthed moves of syncretism. Many eventually become like the Samaritans in 2 Kings 17 [41] So these nations feared the LORD, and served their graven images, both their children, and their children's children: as did their fathers, so do they unto this day.

Strange forced marriage between incompatible positions aimed only at outmaneuvering an opposition or consolidating an edge is not uncommon in scriptures. God established clear prohibitory measures in His codes to preserve purity and the setting apart of His chosen ones referred as His peculiar people. In I Kings 15:18-22, we see three competing Kingdoms of Israel, Judah and Assyria. King Asa of Judah empties the treasures of the house of the Lord and sends to Benhadad of Assyria to break the League between Assyrians and Israel so as to weaken Israel and establish King Asa's rule. Without this alliance, Baasha, King of Israel would have leveraged the treaty with Assyria to crush King Asa.

I Kings 15[18] Then Asa took all the silver and the gold that were left in the treasures of the house of the LORD, and the treasures of the king's house, and delivered them into the hand of his servants: and king Asa sent them to Benhadad, the son of Tabrimon, the son of Hezion, king of Syria, that dwelt at Damascus, saying, [19] There is a league between me and thee, and between my father and thy father: behold, I have sent unto thee a present of silver and gold; come and break thy league with Baasha king of Israel, that he may depart from me. [20] So Benhadad hearkened unto king Asa, and sent the captains of the hosts which he had against the cities of Israel, and smote Ijon, and Dan, and Abelbethmaachah, and all Cinneroth, with all the land of Naphtali. [21] And it came to pass, when Baasha heard thereof , that he left off building of Ramah, and dwelt in Tirzah.

We do not of course see all the interchanges and agreements that produce the coalition in the UK...apart from the positions and choice influence points that have been bartered in the interest of the smooth take-off of the marriage...what happens, someone asks, after the honeymoon?

Now what has all this got to do with Laura Bush? (see video)

Too many divine treasures have been stripped and delivered into the hands of aliens to the covenant for influence and financial gain. Mrs Laura Bush, to promote her bestseller in her recent interview with Larry King, may not have shocked many recently when she exposed spiritual strategic undertones at play in the Bush years...The sanctity of marriage and human life is indeed part of the choicest treasures of God.

For Asa, two brilliant Kings certainly appear better than trusting in the only one God. Back to the United Kingdom ...what happens next? I have no clue but can report what happened to King Asa. In 2 Chronicles Chapter 16 we read that Asa succeeded mightily and built great cities. His lack of faith in God was criticised by Hanani the Prophet who was put in prison by the enraged Asa. Years later he was attacked by and died of a strange "exceeding great" disease of the foot which no alliance or physician could cure.

I pray that all the treasures of God that have been secretly sacrificed to make possible a "rebuilding" anywhere will someday be returned noting that in Psalm 127:1 Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.

I pray God's prophets will be on the watch as events unfold...and most of all I do pray for God's mercy and abundant grace in Christ Jesus. May you always stand perfect and complete in all the will of God. Amen
