“Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall – Humpty Dumpty had a great fall! All the kings horses and all the kings men could not put Humpty Dumpty together again!” I believe it can be successfully argued there is a developing leadership vacuum in our nation and world. One group argues passionately that the Dems have the person with the answers to our dilemma… The Republicans argue for their candidates… And the independents run the entire gambit of solutions and prospects. Progressives and liberals curse and castigate the conservatives – conservatives sound almost apocalyptic about progressives and liberals. Who can bring the solutions we need to the mess we are in… both nationally and internationally?
And the tragedy of it all? The Bible predicts the situation will only get worse until at the end of time there will be someone who steps into the leadership vacuum and gets almost universal acclaim, acceptance and approval… The Bible calls him “the man of sin” or the “antichrist” (lower case letters are deliberate – a personal comment of mine upon that persons character!).
But today during my Bible reading during “Coffee with the Lord” I read of another person – A Divine Person – who will step into history at the end of time…
God speaks and says, “Behold my Servant, whom I uphold, my Chosen, in whom my soul delights; I have put my Spirit upon Him! He will bring forth justice to the nations! He will not cry aloud or lift up His voice, or make it heard in the street! A bruised reed He will not break, and a faintly burning wick he will not quench! He will faithfully bring forth justice. He will not grow faint or be discouraged till he has established justice in the earth!” (From Isaiah 42:1-4)
That’s the Supreme leader I’m waiting for! That’s the One Who has the solutions our world ultimately needs! Every other leader until then needs our prayers! Every other human leader will stand before Him one day in accountability and judgment! Then, as the book of Revelation in the Bible predicts, “The kingdoms of the world will become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!” (Revelation 11:15) That’s the leader I’ve set my hope upon – He’s the One I’m looking to for the future of our planet… And He’s the One in Whose Kingdom I’m living right now, and the Kingdom whose values I embrace in the present leadership crisis that our world is experiencing right now!
