Frankly, I don't believe this until recently it began to dawn on me that it could happen. And many Malaysians like me tend to believe it as well. I am talking about the "RAHMAN" theory. The letter 'R' stands for the First Prime Minister, Tunku Abdul Rahman where it all began. Then Tun Abdul Razak, the second Prime Minister, third, Tun Hussein Onn, fourth, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohammed and the outgoing prime Minister today, Datuk Abdullah Badawi. I was wondering, did Tun Mahathir being influenced by the RAHMAN theory by choosing Pak Lah instead of his favourite, Datuk Najib just to make it happen?
Now, the 'N' word is almost coming to its fulfillment. Datuk Najib Razak could become our next Prime Minister, thus completing the theory started by perhaps a political writer by the name of Ikhwan Nasir. But could 'N' be referred to other than Najib? Could it be 'Nizar'? Or 'Nazrin'? Anyway, we shall see. In politics, anything can happen. Maybe the RAHMAN theory may not happen at all, short of the 'N'. We shall also see.
And what about after RAHMAN is completed? What then? Will it be a change of government? We shall see, see, see.
As Christians, we believe that leaders are raised up by God Himself to fulfill God's plan in the world. The RAHMAN theory may derive from man, and man may be sucked into fulfilling it BUT ultimately it is God who will steer the whole nation towards His glory. Malaysia belongs to God and one day as the Bible proclaims, all humans will have to bow before Jesus, the Lord of all lords and the King of all kings!
(Phil 2:10-11) ...that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
