Ecclesiastes 3:1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: Ecclesiastes 3:15 That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past. This is the Bible way of saying that history repeats itself and things happen in cycles. There is a very old superstition in the United States and it is based on fact. Every American president [except Ronald Reagan] that was elected on a 20 year period died before he left office, either by assasination or natural causes. And someone tried to kill Ronald Reagan but the bullet didn't kill him and he was saved in the hospital. You can trace this back to the time before Lincoln. [It refers to presidents elected, for example, in 1900, 1920, 1940, 1960, - that is what I mean by elected on a 20 year period. Note: The Bible calls astrology sinful to follow so don't follow after it. Nevertheless, the astology people say that the 20 year curse is caused by a certain planet being in a certain position at the founding of the country. President George Bush was elected on a 20 year period, 2000. The question is, "will history repeat itself, as in Ecclesiastes 3:15, and will president bush fall victim to the 20 year curse and die before he leaves office"? I suppose that there are many Muslim extremists that would love to kill themselves while killing president Bush. The religion Islam tells them that they will go to heaven if they die in a Jihad or holy war. The legendary Tecumseh curse-a curse originating from the Shawnees after General Harrison and his forces broke the power of the Native American military movement in 1811at the famous battle of Tippecanoe, is supposedly the reason that 7 (almost 8) US presidents elected in years ending in zero every 20 years have died or been killed in office, not the position of the stars and planets during this nation's founding. Though some astrologers claim to have found an astrological correlation between the position of the stars on the dates of the deaths of the pertinent presidents, I believe Chief Tecumseh's brother’s "curse" is a more likely cause. Tecumseh's brother was a tribal witch doctor and had a big ceremony when the curse was made. Essentially the curse foretold: " Harrison will not win this year to be the Great Chief, but he may win next year. If he does, he will not finish his term. He will die in his office... and after him, every Great Chief chosen every 20 years thereafter will die." William Henry Harrison, first president to fall victim to the curse. http://www.whitehouse.gov/history/presidents/wh9.html Sure, the Presidents elected in 1840 (W Harrison - natural causes), 1860 (Lincoln - shot), 1880 (Garfield - shot), 1900 (McKinley - shot), 1920 (Harding - natural causes), 1940 (F Roosevelt - natural causes) and 1960 (Kennedy - shot) all died in office. Don't make fun of such curses. The Bible has definite evidence that such a curse will come true, if the one causing the curse believes without a doubt that what he says in the curse will really happen. Joshua cursed the man that would rebuild Jericho, saying that his firstborn would die when he started to rebuild it, and his youngest son would die when he set up the gates. The Bible says that hundreds of years later this curse came true. Joshua 6:26 And Joshua adjured them at that time, saying, Cursed be the man before the LORD, that riseth up and buildeth this city Jericho: he shall lay the foundation thereof in his firstborn, and in his youngest son shall he set up the gates of it. 1 Kings 16:34 In his days did Hiel the Bethelite build Jericho: he laid the foundation thereof in Abiram his firstborn, and set up the gates thereof in his youngest son Segub, according to the word of the LORD, which he spake by Joshua the son of Nun. Also, Jotham the son of Jerubaal, (Gideon) cursed Abimelech, and the men of Shechem, and years later his curse came true. Judges 9:19 If ye then have dealt truly and sincerely with Jerubbaal and with his house this day, then rejoice ye in Abimelech, and let him also rejoice in you: Judges 9:20 But if not, let fire come out from Abimelech, and devour the men of Shechem, and the house of Millo; and let fire come out from the men of Shechem, and from the house of Millo, and devour Abimelech. Judges 9:23 Then God sent an evil spirit between Abimelech and the men of Shechem; and the men of Shechem dealt treacherously with Abimelech: From verse 9:24 onto verse 9:55 it tells of how Abimelech and the men of Shechem had war with each other and how Abimelech was killed. Judges 9:56 Thus God rendered the wickedness of Abimelech, which he did unto his father, in slaying his seventy brethren: Judges 9:57 And all the evil of the men of Shechem did God render upon their heads: and upon them came the curse of Jotham the son of Jerubbaal. The Bible clearly shows that such a curse will come true, if it is done with the belief that it will happen, without a doubt. Mark 11:23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. [Note the words, "whosoever" and "whatsoever". It seems that this ability is for anyone, not just Christians.] Old Tecumseh’s brother may have had unwavering belief when he made this curse. Nevertheless, Reagan is the only one yet that beat the curse and someone did try to kill him.) This is an example of sorcery, however. That heathen witch doctor, Tecumseh’s brother, was not a Christian. Sorcery does really cause things to happen, but it is evil and a sin.

Will the curse hit him and will he die before leaving office. Time will tell.
