(Over 120 died in Western Kenya in February of 2009 when, after a large gasoline fuel truck overturned, a crowd of poor people siphoned the fuel, as was the accepted habit in the countryís rural regions, until the gas unexpectedly exploded with a fireball of heat, also killing a number of policemen present who could not divert the crowd from danger.)
ďI am your servant, Truesword, and I stand before you, oh King, to beg your forgiveness and mercy.As a prince in your royal court I have slept with your oldest daughter and made her pregnant.We have vowed to wed but I want to kill myself to hide my shame.Your daughter says if I do, she will too, so I havenít, because I love her and our child.I am the biggest fool in the kingdom.What decide you, oh my King?Ē
ďI am your servant, Doublecut, and I am told to stand before you, oh King, to beg forgiveness and mercy.As a prince in your court I have been accused of sleeping with your youngest daughter who is now with child, said to be from my loins.She, your daughter, has asked me to wed her, but I fear my Kingís wrath.I have been told I am the biggest fool in the Kingdom.Please forgive me if I have done anything wrong.But have mercy, as the Kingdom knows your birth date is but a few months after your royal parentís wedding.What decide you, oh my King?Ē
ďI, King of the realm, have heard enough from these two.The last one here, this Doublecut:Take him to the dungeon and kindly remove his head that confusion no more bother it.The first one, Truesword, take him to my familyís quarters and kindly remove his coat that he might wear our familyís crest.Let the royal Queen make wedding plans with our daughter.Tonight we feast, for my Kingdom has a new son!
ďYe gods!I am in a merry mood now!Belay that order on young Doublecut.Let his head stay upon his shoulders and we shall call him up from the dungeon at every monthís end, just to check and see what a fool believes.If he continues thinking like a fool, well enough!We shall ask his opinion on Kingdom matters, and by his reply will know the foolish way to avoid!Ha!Eh?If, on the other hand, he ever becomes wise, then we shall have cause for some future celebration.Ē
WHY do the Theo-economic TV priests rage, and their viewers imagine a vain thing?(For generations they have believed the economy, and their success in it, as God!)
2The prosperity kings of the earth set themselves apart (living in a creepy, vapid and thoroughly deluded self-congratulatory world), and the Christian broadcast programmers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his true anointed, saying,
3Let us break their bands (of prophetic and holy warnings) asunder, by never allowing a video camera to show true rebuke or chastisement on air, and cast away their cords of correction from us.
5He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh:The Lord shall have them in derision.
6Thou shalt break them with rod of great modern depression; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a profligate in bankruptcy, like a tax cheat in audit, like a give-to-get preacher caught in one form of adultery or the other (as they adulterate the word, so themselves).
7Be wise now, therefore, O ye kings of avoiding chastisement: be instructed that thou hast been utterly uncorrectable; ye judges of what shall be broadcast in My Name.
8Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice not that thou hast served thyself by eating sheepís meat and drinking sheepís blood until thou art gorged unto point of bursting open and loosing alien demons within; even as thou has broadcast thine own demon spirits worldwide in a manner so brazen that would even make Jezebel herself blush in shame.
9Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way of gold rings, bejeweled watches, big hair, envy-pandering, extravagant stage sets, executive jets, multiple mansions, overseas bank accounts and shiny, brazen egos from the pit of hell itself.
10Blessed are all they that see what thou do, and do the opposite in fear and trembling.
