Honesty in Politics

Honesty in Politics

THEY TOLD ME NOT TO BE LOUD. THEY spoke in secret language of pictures, it was an allegory, but I did not know why and today I do not understand exactly why people need allegory. Who understands it? Are that secret societies? They have their languages and no one knows them. Is that some law, which forbids telling exactly and loud what you think? Probably there are the laws that partially determine what you must not tell to one another. What you can tell today? What is that you had not to tell in past, in the history of the world? You must not hurt the other person. Jesus was hurt in the various ways. One of them was mockery when people told Him He is the king with a crown.
Luke, 22:63-65
The men who were guarding Jesus began mocking and beating him. 64 They blindfolded him and demanded, “Prophesy! Who hit you? They said many other insulting things to him.
I could not find the prophet who predicted that mockery. It happened, I believe, only to Jesus and after He walked on the Earth. The people of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob do not have anything alike. Therefore, maybe something opposite
Daniel 6:10-12
Now when Daniel learned that the decree has been publish he went home to his upstairs room where the windows opened toward Jerusalem. Three times a day he got down on his knees and prayed, giving thanks to his God, just as he had done before. 11 Then these men went as a group and found Daniel praying and asking God for help. They went to the king and spoke to him about his royal decree: “Did you not publish a decree that during the next thirty days anyone who prays to any god or human being except to you Your Majesty would be thrown into the lions’ den?”
It is not the same but alike. It is an expressing your will with words and actions. The law was clear and Daniel broke it because he was deeply honest and frankly, he has done and was telling the prayer against the law. Somebody maybe call it braveness. In this act of Daniel was for real the faith. I do not know is that a bravely or not. I do not know are the people scared to tell something aloud and frankly. You never know whom can you hurt when you say something in anger, but you for sure may say whom do you respect in faith. In politics is funny to be brave because you never know when some politician thinks something really or in allegory, never.
People were cruel to Jesus because they did not want to confess their opinion and faith therefore they acted extremely to show everybody that they agree with the law or the public opinion. Maybe they were just scared. There is one more thing. Jesus was the Truth and He is. People cannot manage that. These two examples, so to say, mockery and Daniel’s acts, are extreme.
My conclusion is that in faith God gives you the strength and that your weakness is your strength. In politics you better mind your own business if you can…or use the allegory.
Daniel 3:21
These men, wearing their robes, trousers, turbans and other clothes, were bound and thrown into the blazing furnace

Daniel 3:24-27
Then King Nebuchadnezzar leaped to his feet in amazement and asked his advisers “Weren’t there three men that we tied up and threw into the fire?”
They replied, “Certainly, Majesty.”
25 He said, “Look! I see four men walking around in the fire, unbound and unharmed, and the fourth looks like a son of the gods.”
Nebuchadnezzar then approached the opening of the blazing furnace and shouted, “Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, servants of the “Most High God, come out! Come here!”
Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego came out of the fire, 27 and the satraps, prefects, governors and royal advisers crowded around them. They saw that the fire had not harmed their bodies, nor was a hair of their heads singed, fire had not scorched their robes and there was no smell of fire on them
