Biblical political foreknowledge

As is the case with Biblical scientific foreknowledge, the Bible shows a comprehension of knowledge of political events far ahead of its time. The 31 Proverbs and 150 Psalms are particularly rich in political foreknowledge. Examples include:

Liberal censorship, and its futility

In Proverbs 1:22, the Bible predicts that "scoffers" (self-described as "skeptics" today) will shun and even hate knowledge, and thereby engage in liberal censorship:[1]

How long, O simple ones, will you love being simple?

How long will scoffers delight in their scoffing
and fools hate knowledge?

Vice Presidential Debate

In Proverbs 29:9, the tenor of liberal Joe Biden's hysteria in the 2012 vice presidential debate is predicted: "When a wise man debates a fool, the fool rages and laughs, and there is no peace and quiet."[2]

Erasure of Memory of Liberals

In Psalms 34:16, the manner in which liberals like the atheist Stalin are quickly forgotten, and their statues even torn down, is predicted: "The face of the LORD is against those who do evil, to cut off the memory of them from the earth."[3]

Prophet Not Welcome in His Hometown

The Jacksonsville Jaquars are one of the worst teams in the NFL, racking up horrific records of 2-14, 4-12, and 3-13, in 2012, 2013, and 2014, respectively. Yet they have been adamant in not giving hometown hero Tim Tebow a chance to quarterback the club, despite how Tebow has been given opportunities by better teams and despite how he led the Denver Broncos to playoff success.

Boston was often non-supportive of its own baseball great Ted Williams, and a meager crowd of only 10,454 showed for his last at-bats in 1960. Though much has been written about his home run in his last at-bat, and the cheering crowd, in fact the stadium was two-thirds empty.[4] The Ted Williams Museum was created not in Boston, but in Florida despite his never playing baseball there.[5]

The Bible predicts this odd phenomenon in Matthew 13:57, Mark 6:4, and Luke 4:24. For example, Mark 6:4 quotes Jesus as stating:[6]

A prophet is not without honor, except in his hometown and among his relatives and in his own household.
