OK, O God, time to put up or shut up! Insist or get out of the way. Political leaders like to curry your favor, but status-seeking and violence are out of sync with the insistence of peace and justice in the name of God. Perhaps. That insistence is where the true power and majesty reside. Insistence in the name of God (perhaps) is like the roll of thunder across the heavens. It is that insistence, the calling that draws Israel to worship and gives the people power and strength. Blessed be the name of God!
