Why Does God Let Corrupt People Get Away With Everything?

Angels of Death

Remember Covid? Everyone remembers Covid— people are so freaked out about death. Did you know the Bible mentions angels of death?

Angels of death get a bad rap. But you know what? If you study the Hebrew Bible, the Catholic Bible, the Christian Bible— the angels of death— are just the police men of ancient history.

Any time there is a wicked queen or a wicked king or wicked people in general… the angels of death appear. I’m talking the handcuffs, the shiny leather chaps, knee high boots, mirrored sunglasses— the whole 9 yards. They are there to protect the innocent people from getting butt-whipped by the wicked people.

Why Does God Let Corrupt People Get Away With Everything?

People always complain to me, “Why does God let corrupt people get away with everything?”

Okay, well, there was a time in biblical history where there was a clear police force in the angelic realm that would come down and wipe out — you— if you was WICKED.

Lemme tell you the story of Daniel.

Daniel and Nebuchadnezzar

First of all, the wicked king Nebuchadnezzar was super bad. He loved being a bad boy.

In the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim king of Judah, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came to Jerusalem and besieged it.

—Daniel 1:1

Who does that? Who goes to Jerusalem and besieges it?

Nebuchadnezzar is like, “Honey!!! I’m taking the chariot, okay? I’m gonna go to yoga and then on my way back I’m gonna go to Jerusalem and besiege it. Do you need anything from Trader Joe’s? So tell me now cuz they’re gonna be besieged and you can’t get that trail mix you like— you’re gonna have to order off Amazon.”

The angels of death are like “Tsk. Tsk. Tsk.”

In the second year of his reign, Nebuchadnezzar had dreams; his mind was troubled and he could not sleep.

—Daniel 2:1

Only the 2nd year of Nebuchadnezzar’s reign, he’s already having nightmares. He swears it’s the Adderall, but the angels of death of are like, “Really? Really? Really?”

King Belshazzar gave a great banquet for a thousand of his nobles and drank wine with them. While Belshazzar was drinking his wine, he gave orders to bring in the gold and silver goblets that Nebuchadnezzar his father had taken from the temple in Jerusalem, so that the king and his nobles, his wives and his concubines might drink from them.

—Daniel 5:1-2

So Nebuchadnezzar holds a lavish political rally with a ton of alcohol, invites all his friends. Everyone’s doing shots out of these exquisite gold and silver cups. They’re like, “Wow, Nebby— where did you get these?”

He’s like, “I got ‘em when I besieged Jerusalem.”

People are like gagging , spitting out their tequila.

Who does that? Who destroys a whole town and then drinks out of their murder victim’s wine glasses?

Suddenly the fingers of a human hand appeared and wrote on the plaster of the wall, near the lampstand in the royal palace. The king watched the hand as it wrote. His face turned pale and he was so frightened that his legs became weak and his knees were knocking.

—Daniel 5:5

The angels of death do not approve of this political rally. They magically make a dismembered human hand appear and start writing on the wall.

The bible says Nebuchadnezzar’s face turns pale and he is so frightened that his legs become weak and his knees are knocking.

That is the work of the angels of death. They like to… send a message.

Back in the Bible days, if you were a devoted servant of God— like you owned a cat sanctuary or you volunteered in a soup kitchen like Dora— you just write: Angel of Death: Send a message!
