Does the Bible prophesy about
 President Bush?

by Jen Shroder

In the Old Testament, Isaiah 53 clearly prophesied about Jesus, Isaiah 54 is about expanding to the Gentiles (all non-Jews). In Isaiah 55, when speaking of David, Isaiah prophesied to Israel:

"Behold, I have given him for a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the people. Behold, you shall call a nation that you know not, and nations that knew you not shall run to you because of the LORD your God, and for the Holy One of Israel; for He has glorified you." (Isaiah 55:4-5)

What nation did Israel call that was unknown to Isaiah in his time? The United States. Which nations that did not know Israel but ran to her because of the Lord our God? The U.S. , England and others.

The Hebrew word nation in that verse means Gentile nation. The Hebrew word leader means civil, military or religious leader and is only used two other times in the whole Bible. To know how God was using that word, I looked up who He called "leader" in the other verses. It is also used to describe Jehoiada (1 Chron 12:27) who is very similar to President Bush, using "spear and shield" along with the leaders with him. (1Chron 13:1) Of them it is written:

"All these men of war, that could keep rank, came with a perfect heart to Hebron, to make David king over all Israel: and all the rest also of Israel were of one heart to make David king." (1 Ch 12:38)

There is a parallel there. An illustration. David, Jehoiada and the leaders fought for their nation under the hand of God. Is it possible that Isaiah, who began talking about the past but shifted toward the future, is prophesying about President Bush, who is also a leader doing everything he can for Hebron under the hand of God as Isaiah described? America is the Gentile nation that Israel has called and was not known by Israel at the time of Isaiah, and we have run to her aid just as prophesied in Isaiah 55:5.

These verses have long been claimed to point to Jesus as the "witness" and "leader," but Jesus is the Christ which all the witnesses and prophets point to. (see verses below). Christ is more than a leader, He is our King. The description doesnít quite match the glory of Him.

This comparison has been hotly disputed. Some accuse President Bush of working against Israel with negotiations of the Gaza strip. Yet Palestinians are furious with Bush as events fall into place favoring Israel, agreed to by Bush.

If this verse is a prophesy about President Bush, it would not mean that Bush is perfect or a guarantee of success. King David made some major mistakes. John the Baptist was a witness of Christ and ended up beheaded. In fact all of the disciples were witnesses of Christ and suffered violent deaths.

What the verse DOES say is that God has given us a witness and leader. Bush has boldly spoken of Jesus Christ and has led, therefore the prophesy is already fulfilled. The question is, will our nation follow him or will we choose a man who stands for abortion, the butchering of babies; for homosexuality; giving lip service to whatever he thinks the people want rather than what God commands?

Our nation will be judged and the election will be a large part of it. Based on the current polls, I would be surprised if Bush lost. Based on the Bible, I would be surprised if Bush won. Whether with Kerry in 2004 or Hillary in 2008, the Bible describes very dark times ahead with increasingly radical weather patterns coming in waves like a woman in labor. Should Kerry or Hillary win, I imagine the backlash against Christians and real values will be intense. Liberals will be deluding themselves with cheers of "peace and safety" which is exactly when the Bible says destruction will come.

The next verses in Isaiah are a message from God to us today,

"Seek you the LORD while He may be found, call you upon Him while He is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon."

President Bush is a man of God, but if America does not turn around and repent, God will turn His back on us. Moses was a leader from God, but the people did what they wanted, and the cost was huge.

God said,

"If My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." (2 Ch 7:14)

This election is not about Bush winning or losing, itís about us. God supplied the leader but He will not force us to follow, and He will not force us to become united with those that would slaughter innocent children or make them bow to other gods in public schools. The division of this country is not a mistake. The blind are becoming blinder (John 12:40), as the angels bind together the weeds to be burned (Mat 13:30).

If you havenít received the Savior, now is a good time to seek while He may still be found. Call while He is near. Donít wait for the match to strike. Come.
