George W. Bush an Instrument in the Hand of God
Can I be so bold as to say, irrespective of the political opposition and the media opposition and those (we've already addressed it) who hate our president, can I be so bold to say that the political opposition he faces, which is primarily due to his decision to go into Iraq, that he was an instrument in the hand of God to do what he did. [applause] Whether you voted for him or not, whether you are part of his approval rating high or low right now is irrespective, even the decsions he is currently making, which all of us have difficulties with--his land for peace--I believe that that sole decision which will be the deciding determinating [sic] factor on his legacy in the future years, I am convinced that because he was a man, I believe a true Christian man, a man who's prayed every day, I see the Lord in him going to that nation. All of us are pained by what we see in our news and about the civil war that exists, but this is something that had to happen.So I guess the bad news coming out of Iraq every day is all part of God's plan. If you listen to the whole session preceding Van Koevering's revelation, you see the irrefutable logic. All the speakers, who included Chuck Missler, Tim LaHaye and Perry Stone, predicted that ancient Babylon (about 55 miles south of contemporary Baghdad) would be rebuilt and emerge, to quote Missler, "as a major power center on the earth." That has to happen, you see, because the events described in Isaiah 13 & 14, Jeremiah 50 & 51 and Revelation 17 & 18 relating to Babylon being judged and destroyed have not yet happened. Babylon was never destroyed; it simply fell into ruin in the third century B.C.E. and has to rise again so God can judge and destroy it. (I guess crumbling into dust doesn't count as destruction.)
That will be a judgment richly deserved, because, according to Missler, the United Nations will move to the New Bablyon (too much crime and too few parking places in New York--seriously). Revived Bablyon will become "a new Switzerland" and serve as "the new headquarters of the Antichrist."
So, you see, President Bush had to lay waste to Iraq so that, in the process of rebuiding that devasted country, Iraqis could create the New Babylon. Never mind that Saddam Hussein had well-publicized plans to rebuild Babylon. Apparently he would never had gotten around to it, or he wouldn't have done it right. Maybe he would never have let the United Nations in, what with all those sanctions and stuff.
Jesus can't come back until Babylon is destroyed, so Babylon has to be rebuilt in order to be destroyed, and Babylon can't be rebuilt and then detroyed without George W. Bush's war in Iraq. Q.E.D.
Remember that when you vote on November 7.
