Day 10: The Illegal President

According to North Korea’s own laws, Kim Jong Un is an illegal leader.

According to the socio-political classification structure known as “songbun”, Kim Jong Un belongs at the bottom class. Of the three primary classes of CORE, WAVERING, and HOSTILE – Kim Jong Un belongs to the Hostile class. If Kim Jong Un had done unto him what he has done to others, he and his entire family would be put in a gulag and would never be allowed to leave.

For starters, Kim Jong Un’s mother was not the wife of Kim Jong Il – she was the mistress. Kim’s mother was a professional dancer in Pyongyang when she met with Kim Jong Il. In traditional Korean culture, a child of a mistress falls to the bottom of the social totem pole, but this is not the reason why Kim Jong Un fails the litmus test for Korean leadership. Kim Jong Un’s mother, Ko Yong-hui, is of Japanese heritage: Kim’s grandmother was born and raised in Japan and his grandfather worked in a factory in Japan in support of the imperial Japanese Army during the Japanese occupation of Korea. This family history would give Kim Jong Un the lowest imaginable status.

Furthermore, one of the primary reasons why Kim Jong Nam was not allowed to be president was because he tried to sneak into Japan to visit Disney Land. He only did this after Kim Jong Un’s mother took him to Disney Land on several different occasions. Kim Jong Un’s mother was able to use Brazilian passports and obtain visas in Vienna to take her son back to Japan, the land of her birth. Such a treasonous act would be met with almost certain death had it been anyone else. It gets worse.

Kim Jong Un’s primary caretaker while he was in boarding school in Switzerland was his mother’s sister Ko Yong Sook. Ko escaped from North Korea and defected to the USA! Ko Yong Sook’s defection to the United States was a huge blow to the royal family. Each one of these crimes is enough to put the current president in a gulag for the rest of his life.

But there is one more thing that puts the nail in the coffin. A counter-revolutionary is considered to infect the family gene pool and no other counter-revolutionary is worse than a Christian. A Christian is the bottom of the pile, next to the Japanese sympathizers and American traitors. Since Christians are the worst counter-revolutionaries, every leader of North Korea has been unqualified. Kim Jong Un, his father Kim Jong Il, and his grandfather Kim Il Sung are all decedents of Christian leaders. Kim Jong Un’s great grandfather and grandmother were leaders in the church.

Christian heritage, Japanese Imperial occupation support, vacations to Japan, and family defections to America makes Kim Jong Un completely unqualified to be president. If only Kim Jong Un could see that those that he tortures are not much different from him.

Prayer Points:

  • President Kim Jong Un kills and tortures people that are guilty for the same or less than he
  • President Kim Jong Un, according to North Korea’s own laws, belongs in prison with those that he has imprisoned
  • Equality does not exist in Communism and cannot exist without Christ
  • Pray that the Truth of Christ can show the nation of North Korea the real equality that they desperately seek.

Today’s Scripture Reading:

1 John 8:31
Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
