Here we see the Iraqis dancing in the Streets of Baghdad over the death of Soleimani. And rightly they should. The evil man is dead and they are more safe. And even America is safer. He should have been killed long ago. He is responsible for the death of Millions of good people.
I read in my Saint Paul paper today how for Iran he was a great commander and “a cultural icon who represented national pride and resilience while facing US sanctions.” Well, maybe for some he was. But I think for the good people of Iran he was EVIL. And they are glad to be rid of him. Let all the world REJOICE!
I praise God and thank President Trump for the the just action he took in killing him. And just government has the authority of God to bring this action against evil doers. In Romans 13:4 we read, ”
For he [the governing authority] is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.
So the governing authority from God is given God’s authority to execute God’s wrath on evil persons. And we must take it that that is what has happen to Soleimani. He was so evil.
In the Old Testament when evil was defeated the people rejoiced. Here are two examples:
1 Samuel 18:6
And it came to pass as they came, when David was returned from the slaughter of the Philistine, that the women came out of all cities of Israel, singing and dancing,
When Pharaoh’s horses, chariots and horsemen went into the sea, the Lord brought the waters of the sea back over them, but the Israelites walked through the sea on dry ground. 20 Then Miriam the prophetess, Aaron’s sister, took a tambourine in her hand, and all the women followed her, with tambourines and dancing. 21 Miriam sang to them:
“Sing to the Lord,
for he is highly exalted.
The horse and its rider
he has hurled into the sea.”
Let us rejoice also and stop worrying about what may happen next. Trust God. It is His will to rejoice over evil when it is defeated. And let us pray that we will continue to beat down evil wherever we see it. It is God’s will for His authority figures to execute God’s wrath on evil. And we must support them and pray for them. Let us not be afraid!
