Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez calls the US President George Bush "the devil".

"The Devil came here" said Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez referring to US President George Bush as the South American leader addressed the United Nations General Assembly during its annual meeting. Chavez also said that he could still smell the sulfur around the podium. Chavez accused President Bush of having spoken as if he owned the world referring to Mr. Bush as a spokesman for imperialism trying to preserve his current pattern of domination and exploitation.

The Venezuelan President also blasted the United Nations calling the General Assembly merely a deliberative organ that meets once a year and has no power to make any impact on the terrible situation in the present world.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The Venezuelan President's accusation that US President George Bush is the devil has an interesting prophetic connection according to Bible prophecy.

Hugo Chavez, the outspoken president of Venezuela, surprised many world leaders when he called President Bush "the devil". A number of his counterparts, national leaders in attendance at the annual gathering of the UN General Assembly, have commented that President Chavez was totally out of place to make such an accusation and that it was unbecoming for a world leader to make that statement especially at the United Nations General Assembly.

However, the thought that there could be a connection between the devil and a world leader does have a Biblical basis. The ancient Jewish prophet Daniel wrote in chapter 10 of his prophecy that the devil does dispatch demons to empower and even possess world leaders with a Satanic agenda (Daniel 10: 7-20). Paul the apostle wrote to the Ephesians (Ephesians 6:12) that we today wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, powers of darkness, and evil in the heavenlies. In other words, world leaders are demonically controlled for the devil's endtime agenda.

President Bush, as a born again Christian, could not be demon possessed but other world leaders will according to Bible prophecy that will be fulfilled.
