President – Shavkat Mirziyoyev[α]
Join Bethlehem, for you are little among the nations. Yet, through you, Shaykat, I will birth the savior. He shall come to you in a dream saying, “this is the Way, walk in it.” You will turn completely and follow him. Thus, you will avoid ruin and lead many to salvation. This will be known to many, some will seek your life, but be of good cheer, for it is written: “To live is Christ, to die is gain.” Do not fear what man can do to you, fear The lord, and live.
Prime Minister – Abdulla Aripov
Do not pretend that you know what you know well you don’t know. Pretending is over for you. Now is the time to stand up as a man and contend with me, says God. What will you give for your soul? What do you have that I need, and what leverage do you think you have with the living God. It is written, “it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of a living God.” Be of good cheer, however, for it is also written that the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. When you were a child, you were weaned from your mother’s breast, and now it is time to be a man. “I no longer drink from my mother,” you exclaim. Ah, but you have not been weaned from the teat of sycophants, largess at the expense of others, and the preening and self-serving that surround you. Behold, I open your eyes. Now, open your heart that you may receive truth in the inward man. Do not shrink from hardship and duty, embrace them and live. The softness of your “duties” have done nothing for you. Isn’t it time to do something different? As it is written, today is the day of salvation. Therefore, turn to life and live.
