I can’t say that I’m excited or jumping for joy at the election of our president, Barack Hussein Obama. Neither can I say that I’m not worried about the direction of our country. But what I can say, is that despite how I ‘feel’ about the election, God is still God and his choices are sovereign and even though I may be disheartened by the results, I can still praise my God for his divine choices…
“He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise. And knowledge to those who have understanding.” Daniel 2:21
God has allowed Obama to be the leader of this nation and because of that I will commit to praying for him and this nation daily just as King David prayed and cared for King Saul. You see, throughout time God has appointed good leaders and bad leaders, many times for the purpose of bringing judgment on a nation. Take the Babylonia King, Nebakanezer, for example. God used him to bring judgment on the nation of Israel. God allowed him to conquer, defeat, and make slaves out of the Jewish people in order that they might repent from their sin and turn back to God. We are much like the nation of Israel because we too are turning our back on the Lord as a country. For example, they sacrificed children and today we practice abortion. They allowed all types of sexual sins into their culture and today we allow all types of sexual sin in our culture. I mean think about it. We have billboards with half-naked women on them, tv shows that we have become immune too, magazines with vanity and promiscuity all over them including homosexuality. Sadly our culture is inundated with it. Not only are we like Israel in that we allow sexual sins but we also allow false gods and idols to flourish. God was rightfully angry with His people and we are just like the Israelites when they fell away from the Lord. What breaks my heart is that it was God’s people who were giving into sin and worldly desires and today it’s once again God’s people who are doing likewise. Unfortunately, I believe, we too are going to go through a time of judgment by the Lord.
You see, minutes before our president was elected my husband had a vision of a black cloud coming over America. We knew at that moment that America would never be the same and sadly we also knew that we were headed for a time of judgment. If the truth be told, America is not a superpower in the end times and if we are really in the end times, as I believe, then America is bound to fall from power. It’s evident from Scripture.
I write all this not to scare you or put a damper on your day but to make you aware and let you know what God has been laying on my heart. For it is of utmost importance to me that you be ready for our Saviors return. Because I know we are getting closer and closer to that time and it is my heart’s desire that you come to know the Lord at a deeper level. He is coming back and he is coming back to save his bride. Oh what a glorious day!!
As Christians we need not fear because he is with us and will return for us when the rapture happens. So please be ready! Because now is the time to get right with God. Not later, but now! For the black cloud is already overhead.
Love you all!
**And please join me in committing to pray for our nation and our president, Obama.
