God rules and reigns over all. That knowledge makes all the turmoil we see around us seem rather trivial by comparison.
My reading of history is that when a people descends to the state of moral corruption in which they are willing to support what they openly admit is evil, based on the abject fear of some supposedly “greater” evil, God tends to give that people over to the power of their feared “greater” evil, and to the power of their assumed “lesser” evil as well. The 1932 German election is the classic example. It was considered to be a “lesser of three evils” election between the corrupt, weak, aged Field Marshall Hindenburg, Hitler, and a communist. They chose the “lesser evil,” Hindenburg. Within a month the weakling Hindenburg had handed power over the Hitler and the Nazi Party. They ruled the country with an iron fist for more than a decade, until millions were dead, and the nation, along with most of Europe, was laid waste. Then a large portion of the country was given over to the communists for a generation. This is what happens when a people abandons God, and moral principle, and fails to raise up and empower decent principled leaders. Tyranny can only rise when there is a moral vacuum of true leadership in politics.
