Thank you for asking hard questions last night when I was sharing with you the Postmillennial vision and understanding of the Bible. Let me first say that in order to embrace a doctrine as a faithful Christian all the Bible verses must work together. Secondly, whatever system of eschatology one embraces as a faithful Christian (and there are faithful Christians in all the millennial camps) there are hard questions to be answered.
The difference between the political opinions of Nabal and his wife are poles apart. God himself demonstrated which opinion was right when Nabal was struck dead by God.
Thy Kingdom Come

(To the tune of For All the Saints)
O Glorious Son You asked the Father true
Give Me the nations in justice to subdue

What is the primary need for the nations of the world and for our own nation? Is it righteous political leaders?

Lack for mankind is not a problem with God, but a problem in man as I will discuss after the following Scripture passages. We should learn this judgment cycle and teach it to our children that we might prolong the blessing of God upon us and our descendants.
The Lord Will Judge His People!
A doctrine basic to the Christian faith is this - Jesus Christ is incarnate God! God, “the Word became flesh and dwelt among us.” Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever! Jesus does not change because God does not change and Jesus is God. His Word is truth, [...]
The writer of Ecclesiastes comes out of the struggle of opposing worldviews as a believer. In the final analysis there is nothing in Ecclesiastes that teaches contrary to the immortality of the soul, of eternity, of God’s goodness, and of certain accountability in a final judgment.

Blessing the righteous but the wicked are cursed
