What The Bible Says
Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice
The Philistines declared a great victory over Israel when they killed 30,000 of their footmen and took the ark of God to Ashdod and brought it into the house of Dagon their god. The Philistine victory was shortly after the death of Sampson and just as Samuel was stepping in as God's judge and priest.
Israel supposed that bringing the ark of the covenant of God to the battle ground would guarantee their victory, instead the evil priests bringing the ark, Hophni and Phinehas, were both slain, and the Philistines took what was holy into their camp.
The Democratic Party, pitted against Israel, despising the sanctity of life in the womb, mocking the sanctity of marriage, rejecting “male and female created he them,” and promoting sodomy as gay, is, in those positions, as much an enemy of God as were the Philistines. They shamelessly boast that Delaware voted in McBride, the highest ranking transgender official in the US, that Vermont and Kansas now have their first transgender legislators, and that the NY-15th district has the first Afro-Latino “gay” member of the US Congress. They boast braggadociously of those as “gains” in their “progressive cause.”
That Philistine false god fell on its face before the ark of God, and then lost his head and hands the next day. Leaders of Ashdod ended with emerods in their secret parts. Curse #14 of 30 in Leviticus 28 states “the LORD will smite thee with the botch of Egypt, and with emerods, and with the scab, and with the itch, whereof thou canst not be healed” (Lev 28:27, cf 15 & 45). They sent the ark of God to Gath, and Gath had emerods and mice, then to Ekron where they were smitten with these horrid emerods and plagued with mice. In 1Samuel chapter 6 the five lords of the Philistines sent what was holy, the ark of God, back to Israel where it belonged.
One could name five power mongering Democrat leaders in DC, lords of Philistines, mishandling what is holy, and over due for mice and emerods. One could name five power mongering, church closing, Democrat governors, responsible for 40% of COVID deaths by misguiding nursing homes. They seem overdue for plagues of mice and emerods. Christians need not cower in defeat in these days of Philistinian victories; we are on the winning side, and we have a God who can and does bring judgment on the ungodly.
We are not to call down fire from God to consume enemies, remember Jesus' rebuke to James and John in Luke 9:54-56, but I wouldn't stand to close to any of these in a thunderstorm, and I don't think a face mask protects from emerods in one's secret parts. Let's be about the Father's business; he commissioned us to preach the gospel to every creature. Don't let mere Philistines deter you.
