In spite of the anger, frustration, disbelief, and possible feelings of haplessness; induced by the ridiculing of a people genuinely fighting for democratic changes in the country; mocked by a leader they looked up to issue a concerned address at their plight, I still believe God's plan of using the people to liberate the country is still on track.
God's chosen people, the Israelites, were in an almost similar, but worse situation than ours. Though they suffered under Egyptian slavery for a whooping 400, or so years, in spite of centuries of crying for help from their God, the end result was a joyous occasion. The tyrant was defeated. He finally met his deserved justice from a God who hears the cries of the oppressed. Our situation, albeit, at a smaller magnitude, will realize the same justice from a living God - don't lose hope. I trust the Living God with all my heart. He hates injustices. He abhors the shedding of innocent blood. He hates pride..
The sins of Pharoah were numerous. He worshipped many gods and idols. His rule was defined by spiting the people of a Holy God.God gave him a long rope to hang himself.He hardened Pharoah's heart for His divine reasons.Pharoah never showed signs of repenting, trusted in his own might.The similarities are there with our own Pharoah. He is persistently showing signs of arrogance. He is mocking the people - God's people. The "smoking dagga" utterances are insolent. It is the people who pay for his and families' lavish upkeep. That were not responsible utterances from a leader whom people treated as a god. It's not nice, decent or ethical.
God, albeit unseen, sees, and hears each word we utter. He is aware of every hidden, secrets in our thoughts. Nothing escapes His roving eye.
Blood - sacred blood - has been spilt. The people responsible are mocking the grieving of the people.I swear it won't go down well with the leaders, and those responsible.Their sins will sooner or later, reach the brim of God's tolerance.He has given him the chance to repent.He continues to be arrogant.
- In conclusion, go down memory lane, and scrutinize the fate of dictators, even those who lived in ancient times. It did not go down well with them.. This one will fall - make no mistake about it. Too much innocent and sacred blood is crying out for revenge. The tears are many. God is a merciful, but vengeful God, especially where innocent blood has been recklessly spilt. I don't know how He will act. But.. ACT HE WILL..
