When Daniel was commanded to bow to the golden image of Nebuchadnezzar’s he declined knowing full well it meant his life hung in the balance. The image was a symbol others created in their minds of great power and brought to creation by playing on the ego of Nebuchadnezzar’s. There were no doubt many statues of other Gods that could have been used to trap Daniel and destroy him and his religion but it wasn’t just about other Gods, it was also about raising Nebuchadnezzar to a God like status in the eyes and minds of the Babylonian empire and making Nebuchadnezzar’s image the one Daniel rejected.
This week a group of democratic satraps of Obama was in the news because they were found basically doing the same thing. They had created an image wanting the nation to recognize the glory of Obama by placing his image on the US flag. The flag was flying underneath an American flag outside the Lake County Democratic Party headquarters. Instead of stars, the blue field featured an image of President Obama’s face.
This is a revealing passage into the minds of those that would see Obama as some form of deity. It’s a short leap from here to hoisting Obama onto a throne and they are preparing the minds of this nation into accepting him as our emperor.
It takes a lot of gall and nerve defacing our nations symbol in such away but it has it purpose and it flew for two months unopposed. What does that say about our nation’s values when this image was blaring the people of Lake County in the face everyday for two months and there wasn’t one Daniel in the city.
Will there be a Daniel in the coming days ahead, will there be a Daniel when it means there is even more on the line, like ones life. If history is a tutor of things to come; then, we haven’t seen the last of this type of display by the supporters and followers of this administration.
Even God declined to have any kind of image of himself made because he knew man would bow to the image instead of him. But Obama and his followers deem Obama better than God because he has desecrated the highest symbol this nation has with his image, it’s only a matter of time before we will be commanded to bow before it.
