God Told Bush To Invade Iraq

Bush said that God asked him to invade Iraq and Afghanistan. If he were to attack Iran, he would probably say the same thing? How do you feel about this?

JD Rich: It's good to be in agreement with God's word (the Bible: Gen. - Rev.). :)

Who do you believe the true God is? Who are God's people? Can any of us keep "all" of the commandments?
---Leon on 1/26/08

I would not touch that with a ten foot pole. "That is here say".
---catherine on 1/25/08

It's all well and fine for leaders to be fallible and imperfect.

But when they claim that their actions are not their own, but were commanded by an infallible God, then they must be beld to a higher standard. Remember how the old testament dealt with men who said "God said thus..." and it wasn't true. They were taken outside the camp and stoned to death for their presumption.
---StrongAxe on 1/25/08

Leon, the true God has a contract with His people, that being the covenant/ten commandments. God has said it is like a marriage covenant. Therefore, He can't and will NOT be anyone's God who refuses to keep all of the commandments. (John 14:5,21 and Rev. 12:17) God does NOT shack up! As for me, I have agreed to do what He said to do.
---Dr._Rich on 1/24/08

Bush belongs to Skull and Bones. They give the orders but behind that Freemasonry is someone. You need to do the research. Who is in control? There is a Someone in control. As a matter of fact he was elected last weekend. Do the research.
---frances on 1/24/08

Hmmmm, God told Isreal to kill every man, women, child, and animal that belonged to people other than themselves. They chose not to, maybe as spiritual Isareal christians need to take their job more seriously and do it right. (this is tongue in cheek)
---dan on 1/24/08

Excellent point Evangelistjerry.

JD Rich: Who is your god?
---Leon on 1/24/08

For starters he who is without sin, remember what Jesus said after that. Bush is not perfect, then neither are we, he makes mistakes just like the rest of us. As far as Iraq goes does any one here know what Bush done before he invaded Iraq, he called for a prayer committee to pray with him over going to Iraq, all of which were Christians. Several of these were from the southern baptist assoc. So yes, Bush has made mistakes but name me one person who hasn't, we just ain't in the spotlight like he is.
---evangelistjerry on 1/22/08

I would say that Bush's god is not the same as mine.
---Dr._Rich on 1/21/08

If God had told Bush to invade anyone, victory would have been quick and decisive and total. I cite the old testimant where God told men {such as David } to attack a foreign army. Every instance was miraculous,and total. Claims of "God told Bush" does not stand up to the biblical example before us to use for an example to use to shape the discretion of our beliefs. If the man is hearing supernatural voices, I fear they're not the voice of our God and the man may require therapy or exorcism.
---Alan on 1/21/08

What news source said this?
---Madison1101 on 1/21/08

I really do believe that God has been using president bush,I believe that bush is very confident about what God tells him to do.If we were to attack Iran it would be for weapons or missiles that are being aimed at us, so he would have to respond in the same fashion,I don't think bush would attack first, he is to smart for that,then again I still feel that those weapons are hiding in some desert iran, iraq or afaganastan, only god knows for sure karen

Bush may have reformed but he hasn't been Transfomed

Today, Iranian PM said that he would wipe off Israel and U.S. and God is behind it. (CNN TV News)

Now that Iranian has the greenlight from an Iranian God. Guess Bush is still waiting for his greenlight to invade another.

I heard Bush say that he doesn't drink anymore. He's stronger than I, cause if I had his job, I'd stay drunk. I believe Bush is a true man of God.
---Nellah on 5/20/06

Alan do you think it is O.K. to be making those comments about President Bush and drinking? He is a born-again Christian who used to be an alcoholic (from what I understand). His past life should be left in the past unless we see proof that he is not what we have been led to believe. What you say seems like hearsay rather than evidence.

There is some Biblical basis for believing God chooses leaders. Dan 2:21 says "..He changeth the times and the seasons; He removeth kings and setteth up kings.." but We know that God only allowed the Israelites to have a king in the first place because they insisted on it, not because it was His will. He anointed David, an unlikely candidate, as king . He used some kings to an punish his people. I believe He is still in control, but "His ways are past finding out".
---Donna2277 on 5/20/06

Alan-You musta been reading tabloids published on your side of the pond. Even most of Bush's detractors here don't believe he is a drunk. As a young man he was a drinker and partier..had more than one conviction for "driving under the influence". He sure wasn't a drunk when he was Gov. of Texas a few short years ago.
---Donna2277 on 5/19/06

2. God has lost none of His power, and it is highly dishonoring to Him to suppose that he is struggling along with the human race doing the best He can but unable to accomplish His purposes. His Sovereignty is coupled with infinite power, wisdom, holiness and love. To suppose that His plans fail, that He strives to no effect, is to reduce Him to the level of His creatures. No Ann, He is infinite and nothing can go against His purpose and will. So if it happens, it is only becuase He allowed it to happen.
---karen on 5/19/06

Ann, what is it that you do not understand about God that I put down? Is my statement false? Is there something that I misquoted? can you state what it is? Maybe you believe in a God that waits to see what is going to happen? Perhaps He does not know what we are going to do the next minute. Perhaps He learns as He goes, gaining knowledge through time. Not knowing who we are going to vote for. Isn't it He that raises up and casts down; that opens and hardens the heart?

I have been told that Bush was drunk as a newt when he rode his bicycle into a reporter.

Moderator ... the word here is that Bush is still a drunk.

Moderator - I hope not. I have read he doesn't drink at all since he was around 40.

I think I know who you are talking about.
You reminded me of a concern I have, the push to create a National ID card for U.S. citizens. On the surface it sounds harmless, maybe beneficial. We would know who we all were. But I know of other countries that have created a national identification system. "Stars" and "papers" checks also occurred in those countries. I am afraid our civil liberties will be jeapordized. And in this country, freedom of religion is a civil liberty.

My words may be torn to shreds soon, but I wonder about the statements refering to anyone in office being there by permission of God. I wonder if this verges on truth. God permits them to remain in power, yes. Perhaps, however, God 'permits' them to remain because he has given us freewill. He is deeply wounded and wishes we would not follow the leader and would even stop him. But out of his gift to us, free will, he does not depose the leader. He hopes that we will see the light before it is too late.
---Ann on 5/19/06

The president of Iran is the one to be concerned about. All non muslums in that country have to wear a badge(who does that remind you of). He threatens Israel now and then.
---Ulrika on 5/19/06

Please, review works written by noted political scientists and historians, including Christian authors, concerning Hitler and other leaders. They almost all claim to be doing God's work at some time. We, we know this cannot be true. And yet this is the scary thing, because at the time of their rule, normally God worshiping people followed Hitler and leaders like him. Hitler could not have been doing God's work, not the work of the Jesus and God I know. We must be aware.
---Ann on 5/19/06

Karen,you may have helped to make my point. I wrote in response to this quote from Darlene"I would say to anyone who demeans Political Leaders to remember God establishes the thrones and therefore the ones who rule from them." God gave us free will, and as such, we often end up with less than Godly leaders. He knows all that we do and is often pained by it. I only ment,that to believe that God establishes who sits on thrones,as Darelene seems to say, makes it appear as if God then chose Hitler.

Moderator, Didn't Bush get saved later than his college years. He learned about salvation from Billy Graham, is what I understand from what said at an interview of Billy Graham that I saw on TV.

Moderator - He got saved around 40. Before then he was a drunk. I read his autobiography. The problem that I have is that he has never renounced the Skull and Bones Illuminati One World Order organization that he joined while at Yale.

CORRECTION: On 5/17 I mentioned in a post that G.W. Bush is a Mason. You will be relieved to know that he is not. I had read it, but couldn't remember where. Checking on the internet, I found that even the wildest conspiracy theorists who tried their best to associate him with the Masonic Lodge (He took his oath on a Masonic Bible,mentions the "new world order" in his speeches) did not state that. When I checked freemasonry sites, several stated that neither he nor his father were Masons.
---Donna2277 on 5/17/06

3. anyway, as we already know, Heaven and earth and all that is in them are the instruments through which He works His ends. By virtue of the fact that God has crerated every thing which exists, He is the absolute Owner and final Disposer of all that He has made. Praise be to God
---Lupe2618 on 5/17/06

2. I believe there is so much more that the people don't know about that is behind the lines. How all this is connected is not told to any of us. We can cut each president down if we want, but the fact still remains that as Karen has stated, anyone in office is by permission of God. If God does not want someone in office, that person, would not be there. He permits things for only He knows what it all amounts to. We can guess but we sure will not know all of it.

Hello sister Ulrika, I myself saw a film where Clinton was talking about the secret society of the Skull and bone he belonged to. He only admitted to it, but that was it. Then they showed a small clip on Bush and he also admitted it, but did not say anything more about it even when questioned. They mentioned on the show many other presidents that belonged to this societies. Not to long ago there was a blog here on this site about it. Someone here might have more information on it then me.
---Lupe2618 on 5/17/06

V1. No Ann, you have a wrong concept of who God Almighty is. Not men, nor the devil can defeat God's purposes and will. If one of those evil men is in power, it is only by permission. If the devil does something, he is still govern by God as to what he is allowed to do. No more, no less then is permitted. It might seem to us as if God cannot stop evil men, but God will do away with sin, when He so desires and no one knows when that time will be. Until that time men is held accountable for what he does.
---karen on 5/17/06

Where did you people learn the Bush is part of the Freemasons and Skull Crossbones Club. Unless I heard him say it himself, I would take it as hear say.

Moderator - He was a member of the Skulls at Yale during college which is a fact. I have never heard of him being a Freemason.
---Ulrika on 5/17/06

V. it is the Lord that has done it (Amos 3:5,6; Lamentations 3:33-38; Is. 47:7; Eccl. 7:14; Is. 54:16). Cannot the Almighty, the Omnipotent Ruler of the universe, change the characters of the creatures He has made? He changed the water into wine at Cana, and converted Saul on the road to Damascus. The leper said, "Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean," and at a word his leprosy was cleansed. God is able to cleanse the soul as well as the body when and if He wanted.

"The Almighty Maker of all that is, is represented equally as the irresistible Ruler of all that He has made; Jehovah sits as King for ever (Psalms 29:10).

11. or for that matter that the devil, through Hitler, accomplished something without God's knowledge and defeated God's purpose and will, is to make Satan Sovereign. I don't think you truely understand the God we have. The one you stated is not the Jesus or God that I know either. He did know, and could have stopped Hitler if He so desired. By permitting or allowing it to happen does not place the fault on God, because it is sin in men that is doing it, not God. Why do you think we are held accountable?
---karen on 5/17/06

Ann, you seem to be questioning the Sovereignty of God. The way you stated your point in your statement was, "I suppose some could argue that he (hitler) was placed on his leardership throne by God as a needed thing to complete God's plan for our eternal salvation." I would say you have turned what sister Darlene said around. God did not place Hitler in his leardership throne, men did. Yet God allowed it to happen. To even think that God did not know

Madison, from what I learned about Masons, men don't know it isn't our God until they get to the highest degrees of the Masons. They well could be Christians and not know what they've gotten into since I've heard it presents itself as Christian. Just a thought.

Madison1101--I didn't say Bush is a Christian. Not my place to judge. The occult in Masonry is very subtle and is not found equally in all orders. They can easily fool an immature Christian with only a sketchy knowledge of doctrine who joins primarily for social reasons.(more info on other blogs)
I doubt Bush actually said that GOD asked him to invade Afganistan and/or Iraq. Probably said something that got interpreted that way, though. I think the writer of this question is assuming a lot.
---Donna2277 on 5/17/06

There is absolutely no quote of Bush saying God told him to invade iraq.Absolutely nothing.As christians we shud learn not to judge or make pronouncements where we dont have all the facts.I know Bush has made mistakes. He claims he is a believer.and so do we here.who are we to say he is a fake or not?let God judge him.
---pkay on 5/17/06

Donna: Then Bush is not a man of God if he is a Mason. No man can serve two masters. The Masons are a part of the occult. Either you honor the devil, or Christ. He is two-faced if he is part of the Masons and yet says he is born again.
---Madison1101 on 5/17/06

One more before I close. These blogs, supportive and critisizing, are wonderful. We are currently free to voice such opinions, a freedom threatened in the name of national security. It is easy to complacently believe that our leadership is looking out for our best interests. Ask your ancestors how they felt about carrying "papers" or being watched by officials. Review our Constitution and its amendments, written to protect the people from what governments have done to their people in the past.

Reading the blogs again... Remember, Hitler was a political leader. In his early political career people voluntarily followed him because they thought he could help their country. I suppose some could argue that he was placed on his leadership throne by God as a needed thing to complete God's plan for our eternal salvation, a time of our trial and tribulation. But this would not be the Jesus or the God I know.
---Ann on 5/17/06

Newsweek said in 2003 that Bush gets up before dawn on most days to read his Bible and pray. "A CHARGE TO KEEP" ch. 10 describes how he gave his life to Christ. Romans 14:10-13
"But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God... Let us not therefore judge one another any more..."

Whether or not Bush said in words that God told him to invade Iraq, the reality is he does claim to be a Godly man and he believes what he is doing is right. As far as God establishing thrones for selected leaders, he probably does, just be careful in accepting this thought, because even those not 'selected' by God very often claim to be. History has given us plenty of examples.
---ann on 5/17/06

Madison1101--no president will denounce the Masons or Skull and Crossbones Club. Bush himself is Mason. The general public sees the Masonic orders as a benificent organization of older men with funny red fezes. Very few people have even heard of The Skull and Crossbones, let alone know anything about it. Any president would be a fool for publically denouncing groups that have never ostensively harmed anyone. Even the occult is not considered a "threat" in this "multi-cultural" society.

I watch news all the time and I never heard a story on Bush saying God told him to invade Iraq or anywhere else. This is known as propaganda,whoever started this was trying to demean Bush. I would say to anyone who demeans Political Leaders to remember God establishes the thrones and therefore the ones who rule from them. There are events which must come to pass in order for the Lord to come again. Proverbs16:4 the Lord hath made all things for Himself;yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.

Be ever watchful... Leaders throughout history have claimed a feeling that God is calling them to lead in a particular fasion. According to historian Richard Steigmann-Gall, much is known about Hitler's religious views. Hitler writes:

With Bush's connections to the Freemasons and the Skull and Crossbones Club, I am suspicious of his supposed testimony. Why has he not come out and denounced those groups? He claims to be a man of God but allows himself to be associated with two occult groups that are well known.

Since Bush is a freemason I would be asking myself which "god" Bush is listening to. Many are under the asumption that he serves Jesus Christ. This is not the case with freemasons.
