Matt.4:6 Wars and rumors of Wars: see that you be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass." The LORD told Prophet Samuel to explain in detail, the consequences of "rejecting the LORD". Selfish, greedy[covetous] Dictators results.
Covetousness is extreme greed, and like death, is always, unsatisfied. Dictators are willing to fight for land, natural resources, and control over currency. These Guys are ungrateful, and totally ignore the WORD. They take on the likeness of their Leader-to control, or destroy.
The season that we are now in, the Paper Eagle, is running out of paper. When Dictators look at the American Government, they see 17,000000000000 in debt, and a death spiral for the worthless currency. America is seen as the largest hypocrite on the face of the earth: the govt. has murdered over 50,000,000 babies since 1973, but attempts to admonish the world on human rights, and equality.
Surprise, Surprise when targets were attacked on Sept. 11, 2001. The targets, and intended targets were specific: Centralized Gov. presents an easy target, and are viewed as Idols. There are many Scriptures concerning unequal-yokes, covering the sins of the wicked, and taking pleasure in the sins of others.
Why War? James 4:1-3 sums it up. We must stay grounded on the ROCK. The weather, earthquakes, and out of control wild fires are here. There will be loud .... as the earth and nature requires, the return of CHRIST. Matt.24:6 "The end is not yet."
