I am sick to death of reading the pious comments or hearing them from so-called Christians that say "God commands us to follow our leaders." This is not completely true. They take a passage of scripture from the Bible and use it out of context to suit their purpose. Doing such things violates the warning given to us in Revelation 22 about taking away or adding to God's Word. Most Christians today only want to hear the "feel good, fluffy duffy stuff" and nothing about prophecy, God's will for their lives (to the contrary many are being taught that THEY find THEIR purpose for THEIR lives - according to false prophet Rick Warren), but I digress.
I wrote the following today in answer to these useful idiots who are theologically illiterate. You may or may not agree with this. Whichever your opinion, that is your choice. I have not distorted nor taken out of context any of the Word of God in this written "observation."
“And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it,” Luke 4:5, 6. In these verses, Satan claimed that authority over the earth’s kingdoms was delivered to him, and Jesus didn’t challenge that statement
Here’s a guarantee, Satan will never give even a portion of that power to anyone who won’t worship him. Jesus would never worship Satan, but ungodly men who are hungry for power will sell their souls for a chance to gain that power, and they have.
Satan is the ruler of this world and the prince of the power of the air and has been so, by popular election of mankind, since the days of Adam. “Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:” Ephesians 2:2.
Planet earth is a property currently governed by Satan’s supernatural minions of evil and they hate mankind. Most of mankind has been blinded to this truth since the first rebellion against God.
Since Satan possesses the glory of the kingdoms of this world, and can give it to whomsoever he wills, it should not surprise us to see the ungodly in positions of power in every nation. Is there any wonder that Americans have elected a man completely opposed to God to represent them? Most people follow Satan, not God, and that’s a sad fact.
Should we then be shocked and surprised when ungodly men are thrust into the public eye, men without any governing experience to speak of, and then to be elected by a majority vote to hold the highest office of our land?
Can there be any doubt as to the supernatural force behind such a phenomena? Take a trip around the globe and try and find men of godly stature upholding God’s truths while running their countries. How many did you find? Are you surprised yet?
Believers, we are in a daily battle with Satan and his minions of evil. Before we became a new creation in Christ there was no battle, no stumbling blocks, Satan owned us and that was that. After becoming born again this life became much tougher. What really makes this life difficult for believers to deal with is that we aren’t blind to God’s truth anymore. It has now become our responsibility to pass on this truth – the truth of the Gospel – to those who are still wearing blinders. But the opposition is fierce.
In our previous existence as unbelievers we couldn’t see Satan’s handiwork. Now that we are believers we see his evil in everything from the men and women running our federal government to even the small city government officials. Those who are deceived can’t see what’s happening in this country and the majority in this country are themselves satanically deceived. True believers, those who actually live a life devoted to Christ, have no doubt about what’s going on. Satan is ruler of this age, and has been for the last six thousand years, although, time’s running out and Satan knows it.
Satan’s lie remains unchanged, although presented differently in today’s vernacular. There really is no difference in what Eve heard from the serpent in the Garden of Eden, “Did God really say” and “Thou shalt not surely die” or the lie that is heard today all over the world. “Is there really a God, and if there is, would a loving God really send good people to Hell just because they aren’t Christians?”
Satan never changes his tired old lies; it’s just that he always has a new parade of people traveling through this world that he can corrupt with those lies, always working at expanding his base of followers.
Patriotism and loyalty to one’s country is all well and good, even necessary, but for the believer it is essential to be completely devoted to Jesus Christ. Many of our fellow citizens have put their lives on the line for their country and many have died for that cause so their families as well as their countrymen can live in peace and safety. Freedom is costly, and anytime a patriot loses his or her life for the cause of freedom we who remain should do all we can to keep their memory alive while preserving what they died for.
Do not attack me for the following, for it must be said. But preserving our freedom today is quickly becoming an exercise in futility. Freedom is easily distorted and can be
eliminated through the apathy of any countries citizenry, and removed by those who would trade freedom for servitude. The most important factor or cause or devotion we can possibly be involved with, is our declaration of love for our savior Jesus Christ, and the promotion of His Gospel. The fact that we have freedom in Christ is the only true freedom we will ever have while we’re occupying these bodies and this land.
Speaking of followers, only through supernatural power is a man able to achieve what Obama has achieved in so short a span of time. For the most part this man was unheard of a short while ago and now reigns as quasi-king of the world. That’s scary folks.
Some people may see me as a racist and a bigot because I’m not following Obama. They can call me what they will, it won’t change the fact of who Obama is and who’s behind him. Nor will it change my mind about how the majority of folks in this country, as well as other nations around the world, are so completely deceived that the truth has become a lie, right has become wrong, good has become bad, up has become down, and light has become dark. Evil is evil folks, no matter how we dress it up.
Some reading this might respond with: “Well Bush was just as bad” or “McCain would have been worse”. Those folks, having been motivated by satanic deceptions, now see a need to deflect any perception of evil from Obama and lay it at the doorstep of someone else. Have you ever noticed that nothing that is perceived to be evil ever sticks to this man?
Obama, through his proclamation of change has done what the devil is so good at doing; he’s tempted the masses with something better, a better life, and a more prosperous future. His idea of change is to do a makeover on the face of America. The jury is still out on what face he’s trying to put on America, but it’s beginning to look a lot like a Muslim face.
Here’s a quote from that dressed up occupier of the office of President of the United States. “The Islamic faith has done so much over the centuries to make my country better.” That is a quote from your president America. Are you surprised yet?
Politicians come and go, and at this point in time in this country we are strapped with some of the most ungodly politicians ever to walk the halls of congress or sit in the office of the President. Personally, I’m not surprised.
“And the LORD said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them.” 1 Samuel 8:7. Something we would all do well to remember is how much Israel wanted a King. Even after Samuel told them all the evil things a king would demand of them they refused to listen. “Nevertheless the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel; and they said, Nay; but we will have a king over us; 1 Samuel 8:19.
Israel demanded from God a king and because God wouldn’t violate the national will of the people He gave them what they wanted. They were attracted to Saul because of his outside appearance. But inside, Saul was not near as attractive, not so godly a man. Israel made a huge mistake in seeking Saul as king. God wanted to be their King but He was out voted.
A few thousand years later history repeats itself. America was once a nation where God was King, but He has now been voted out. America is now looking to a man and his outside appearance and listening to his articulate speech for their deliverance. America has voted into office a new king who is as poor of a king as Israel’s Saul ever was. If we can’t learn from history we are doomed to repeat it, so the old adage goes. So, now that America has made her choice, God will not violate her national will. We are now strapped with a man for at least the next two years who will be the vehicle in which America rides out her final assent into oblivion. Surprised yet?
It’s painfully obvious that godly leaders aren’t going to surface any time soon. All we can do to fight the scourge on the land is to be in continual prayer and remember who wins in the end. At any rate, this world shouldn’t be all that attractive to us. The word of God sufficed for Jesus to fend off Satan in the wilderness, and that same word of God is completely sufficient for us as well.
“For my love they are my adversaries: but I give myself unto prayer. And they have rewarded me evil for good, and hatred for my love. Set thou a wicked man over him: and let Satan stand at his right hand. When he shall be judged, let him be condemned: and let his prayer become sin. Let his days be few; and let another take his office,” Psalm 109:4-8
King David had enemies, and David’s enemies were also enemies of God. Psalm 109 is David’s prayer against an un-named enemy and it could have been Saul, Absalom, or a nation. In the same way, Christians have an enemy and our enemy is God’s enemy. Our government is filled with people who follow Satan and just like their leader they too are bent on destroying those who are called by God’s name, and believers need to humbly pray for God’s intervention.
Here is a prayer for intervention:
“Father in Heaven, our present leadership in this country is bent on destroying all vestiges of freedom. The man who occupies the Oval Office is undoubtedly being led by Satan. Let his days in office be few, and let another, a godly man take the reins of leadership. We make amends O Lord, we repent of our past sins and though they are many it is with earnest and heavy hearts that we ask You, O Lord, to act upon our prayers today.
We pray for the healing of our land and for Your intervention in all our lives and in our human system of governance. We ask You, Father, to bless our land with change, but with Your change, Lord, not man’s notion of how life should be. We pray that our hearts and minds would be devoted to You, O God. We pray for a godly leadership in this country. Please Father allow a godly man to assume the office of President of the United States of America, a man who would lead us in accordance to Your will, a man who would pray with us “Thy will be done”. We pray, Father, that You would place a man over us who will make it his goal to stand up for our Lord Jesus Christ in all circumstances. Father this is our heartfelt appeal to you, and as always it’s through the precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ we pray. Amen.”
How appropriate it is to build a prayer around that verse ( Psa 109:4-8) asking God for the restoration of our country and for the presidency with that verse”. Many of you share my concerns for this country and I know you’re praying that same prayer or at least one very similar. Believers must focus on prayer especially since we are surrounded by overwhelming proof we are in the last days here on earth.
We must be serious in our convictions so that God will hear our prayers and send relief from the evil that currently holds sway over us. If we mindlessly mouth prayers without a fully convicted heart then God may well respond in kind. I say shame on us if we water down our prayers. In the end we’ll get what we deserve. We may already be receiving our due.
Analysts will claim the worldwide recession is over and everything is getting better, then they turn around and the very next day it’s that same old tired doom and gloom hitting us smack between the eyes. We may not be able to trust analysts anymore than we can trust the wind to cease blowing from the south.
But we can trust the word of God, and we can discern the signs of the times. How many warnings are we given throughout God’s word that present us with a nice clear picture of what to expect in the very near future? If God’s children would actually believe His written word and study it diligently we wouldn’t be in the mess we’re in today.
Every believer should be keenly aware of the evil facing us on a daily basis. Instead of our continuing decent down that slippery slope we might just be seeing a more positive perspective confronting us. Sadly we are not only on a slippery slope, but we’re rapidly picking up speed.
We’ve all made mistakes in the past and we will no doubt make new ones in the future, but one thing we can resolve to do right now is to refuse to make the same mistakes twice. Electing evil people over and over again to run our government can only be classified as a huge mistake. Accountability in government is the responsibility of all Americans.
Godly change is what’s needed in America . You and I can, if we all ask God for help, initiate that change confidently. Across this land there is a satanic deception that many just don’t see. Many people who are eligible to vote don’t, or won’t. Christians would hold the majority vote in America if we would all vote. Those who never vote have no voice in the process. We can effect change if we so desire to do so. But it must be paramount on our minds and we must be resigned to help in forging changes in our government leadership or it will never happen, and the evil that currently permeates our land will continue unabated.
“Let his days be few; and let another take his office.” Psalm 109:8. This prayer of David’s is perfectly pointed at all who would try their hand at destroying our great nation. God stands on the side of the righteous He will not stand with our enemies.
We are a nation of believing, caring, giving individuals who know the difference between right and wrong. We currently have the wrong leaders in place; let’s determine, once and for all, to only elect godly men and women to manage our government. Yes, we are commanded to elect Godly leaders. If we do not, we face the consequences - as we are now.
