Rush Limbaugh, the Optimist

February 22, 2010

Rush Limbaugh calls himself an optimist. He does want to look on the bright side of things. In his radio program, he will constantly talk about what good things will turn out in the end because the American people will wake up to what is happening and reject what the Democrats are doing. There is certainly a place for being optimistic, but optimism can be destructive, too.

In Jeremiah 28, we are introduced to a Rush Limbaugh of Jeremiah’s day. Hananiah was a prophet. He wanted to believe that the kingdom of Judah would survive the coming onslaught of the Chaldeans. Jerusalem and the temple had already been sacked once by the Chaldeans and Judah was placed under tribute. Jeremiah was prophesying to the Jews to repent or Judah would be destroyed. God had told Jeremiah to put a wooden yoke around his neck to represent the bondage the Jews and other nations would experience under the Chaldeans. Hananiah began prophesying saying, “God says, ‘I have broken the yoke of the king of Babylon. Within two full years, I will bring into this place all the vessels of the Lord’s house that Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon took away from this place and carried  to Babylon.’” Hananiah then took the yoke off of Jeremiah’s neck and broke it. God then spoke to Jeremiah soon thereafter and told him to say to Hananiah, “God says, ‘You have broken the yokes of wood; but you shall make for them yokes of iron. I have put a yoke of iron upon all these nations so that they will serve Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon.” Jeremiah then added, “God has not sent you, but you make this people trust in a lie. Therefore, God says, ‘I will cast you from off the face of the earth: this year you shall die, because you have taught rebellion against the Lord.’” Just as Jeremiah prophesied, Hananiah died two months later.

Hananiah was very optimistic. He said what the people wanted to hear; but it was a lie. God was saying, “I will destroy this kingdom because of its rebellion against me.” There was a precondition that had to be met for the kingdom of Judah to avoid total destruction. God’s people, the Jews, had to repent and turn back to God. That did not happen and Judah was destroyed a few years later.

Today, Rush Limbaugh is talking about the people of the U.S. rejecting Obama and the Democrats because Americans believe in the Constitution and freedom. Most people in this country do not even know what the Constitution says. I prophesied just after Obama took office, that the Democrats would lose control of the House and possibly the Senate. That does not mean things will get better. It especially does not mean Obama will be a one term president. God told me to write “Jeremiah’s Prophecies: The End of the United States.” In it God says to this country, “Do not let the prognosticators and false prophets tell you the spirit of Nebuchadnezzar will be broken in the next election. I will increase its stranglehold over you.” It is the spirit of Nebuchadnezzar that controls the White House, so this word from God says Obama will be reelected and his power over us will increase.

Why is this happening? It is happening because we as a country have rejected God and cast him out of our society. We cannot mention God in our schools or on public property; we cannot pray there: we cannot display the Ten Commandments or show nativity scenes on public property and so on. God has already begun to judge us and the optimists like Rush unfortunately are getting the American people to believe in a lie to our destruction. If we want to save this country, then this nation and especially God’s church in this nation must repent and turn this country back to God immediately or this nation will fall.
