Does any of you think that because the United States has rejected G*D and elected Obama that he has withdrawn his hand of protection on this country and that is why the hits are coming thick and fast now?
My car didn’t start this morning.
Yes. Look up!
I think we elected Obama because He has withdrawn His support for us.
Obama or not, we’ve rejected God. Perhaps God gave us Obama because of our rejection.
I’m only in my mid-30’s but have never before witnessed the radical change that is happening in our country. Washington is so corrupt that it is beyond redemption.
America’s best days are behind her. We peaked in the 50’s.
Do you think the election of Obama and the rejection of God are one in the same? Do you think we'd have honored God by electing John McCain instead?
Unfortunately, they aren't the only ones that are going to suffer. But that isn't unusual in this world.
I do have hope that, if we pray and work, He may yet extend mercy to us and revive our nation.
Every time the Israelites rejected God and removed themselves from His presence; what happened?
Answer: Their enemies overtook them.
I would say that our current crop of ‘leaders’ are evidence God is letting us go our own way. Also in this defense look at the decay of our society and values. If you look at scripture theres always a slow decline into slavery and the US is well on its way. Is it inevitable we’ll wind up at the bottom? I think not. Scripture also says if we (the church) turn from our evil and call out to God he’ll heal our land. So, a crash and burn isn’t a forgone conclusion.
God doesn’t change. Read what he let happen to Isreal when they rejected him.
Also read what happens when people repent and turn back to him.
The US has not rejected God.
The US is under attack from within, and God is not going to stand for it.
This is God’s fight, and God always wins.
I have a fungus in my boxwoods
Is this a vanity?
Why do you believe God has removed His protective hand?
We’ve had three major terror attempts that have slipped right through our best security measures (sarcasm dripping), and for all practical purposes, should have succeeded and caused much damage.
Miraculously... they failed. Not prevented... just didn’t work.
God can work through idiots as well as saints.
America cried out for a king and they got one. God said in the passed you want a king you can have one, you will live with the consequences.
Hello Alex. I was asking about you the other day. Seems you took a break from FReeping. Welcome back.
BTTT. From your FReep page:
If My people, who are called by My name
...not the unsaved, not the non-church-goer, not the atheist, and not those who belong to other religions....
will humble themselves
...we Christians better start getting used to the idea that we’re part of the problem. Yes, we helped make this mess...
...if we’re not asking for His help, we might not get it...
and seek My face
...He’s not just our Savior, He’s supposed to be our Lord. We need to find out what He wants us to do. We don’t tell Him what we want to do...
and turn from their wicked ways
...again, we’ve been part of the problem all along. If we don’t admit it, and we don’t change what we’re doing, don’t expect the things around us to change either...
then will I hear from heaven
...notice it’s an if/then equation. If we don’t do all of the above, He makes no promise to hear us...
and will forgive their sin
...we need to recognize that our country’s problems are ultimately ethical problems. God [the Person you are praying to/seeking the face of] sets the rules....
and will heal their land.”
...note that this comes only at the end of everything above. If our priorities are out of whack, we’ll probably think that God needs to heal this land first.
We who are Christians need to repent. This is the only thing that will free this country again.
Many Americans have not rejected God and did not elect Obama.
If he wanted to punish Obama and the Left, there are plenty of ways he might do that without punishing his children.
The voters of the United States rejected our constitutionally guaranteed republican form of government, and the communists were able to capture all three branches of government.
With or without God, stupid voters get what they voted for.
Yes, Obama is the antichrist no doubt and the END times are here. America could’ve saved itself with McCain, atleast he was a real american. Now we are going to be destroyed by secular intellectuals and commie thugs unless we don’t revert course.
Election 2012 November, Apocalypse 2012 December coincidence??
“America couldve saved itself with McCain” can I have some of what you are smoking.
I think its worse than that. I think we elected God DESPITE the many blessings He gave us, despite the warnings HE gave us, despite His presence among us. We slapped God in the face (again) and God, like the just and wise Parent is stepping back for we the children to realize what s**t tastes like.
There are plenty other examples in the Old Testament, of the various tribes rejecting God.
My salvation is a personal decision not a national one. I have not rejected God, and won't. As for ME and MY HOUSE we will serve the Lord.
I think the reason we HAVE Obama is because we rejected God.
Why don't you list the "hits"???
And...can you prove the "hist" are coming any thicker and faster than they did during the time of James Monroe, Abraham Lincoln, or clintoon???
Yep. We're heading for a tribulation - the worst this country has ever seen.
Woe to those who call good evil, and evil good.
The 10 Commandments have been removed from the public square. The Doctrine of Demons (Political Correctness - the antitheses of the 10 commandments) has moved in to take their place.
"Blessed are those who read aloud or hear the words of this prophecy and observe the things written in it, for the appointed time is near. Comfort one another with these words." -- Revelation
Do you think John McCain would have abandoned Israel? In a lot of ways, I don't think there would have been much difference. But as the days roll on, I don't think McCain would have drug us down the same gutter...sadly, he would have taken us into a slightly less socialist gutter...
I think if God had removed his hand you wouldn’t be asking people if they thought so.
Some bombs fail, and do not detonate.
Only a little over half the voters supported this guy and for a wide variety of reasons.
Look at what has become of this beautiful country. This is a country made up of people from all races, nations and cultures. It is a model for an ideal world. The heat for the "melting pot" was provided by love and respect and high ideals. But we live in a fallen world made up of fallen men and so our ideals are at risk of corruption. At present, it certainly seems that corruption is ascendant.
Has our nation turned away from God? Politicians conspire with wealthy and powerful to raid our treasury and tax the people. The culture is saturated with pornography. Homosexuality has more influence than Christianity once did. How did this happen?
I think the many scandals of past years opened the door for this to happen. Jim and Tammy, Jimmy Swaggert, pedophile priests etc. And don't forget our so called conservative republican leaders who got flushed because of scandal. That includes Newt Gingrich, Livingston and more.
How can God bless a nation that rejects high moral standards? Adultery and premarital sex are considered normal and in many cases celebrated. Where are the leaders calling for an end to this?
Frankly, I think 2012 is going to be a referendum of sorts, not just about Obama but about the moral direction of our country. I'm pretty sure that the leader who stands up for family values and moral standards will be the winner. I'm also certain that there will be phonies who will talk grandly about this but the genuine person will win the support of God and the people.
There is bright star that rises in the east.
Have a good day and a better tomorrow.
I believe that God’s hand of protection is still over the United States and Israel. When our President acts stupidly He pulls his had back a little and some evil comes our way. Arafat’s visits brought us a Hurricane and Nrothridge earthquake. There is a book out with 50 examples pulling his hand back. With the way our setting resident is acting we need to be prepared for more.
I think that this country was founded for one purpose and that is to enable the world to be prepared for the re-founding of the State of Isreal. And when we turn our back on and poke at the “Apple of G*D’s Eye” WATCH OUT....!!!
That's pretty much the way I see it, neighbor.
"The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness" (2 Thess. 2:9-12).
2 Chronicles 7:14
key word = IF
Then in the nations where they have been carried captive, those who escape will remember mehow I have been grieved by their adulterous hearts, which have turned away from me, and by their eyes, which have lusted after their idols. They will loathe themselves for the evil they have done and for all their detestable practices.
This is not the only reference in the Bible about Nations falling away. The Jews are the example and how many times have they failed?
I've said since November 2008 that I can't decide if Obama will bring GOD's wrath on our nation for turning its back on HIM, or whether Obama IS God's wrath for this nation turning its back on HIM. Ponder that.
Wish he would get back into the fight and soon.
Pray for America.
that hand of protection was gone long before Obama - abortions alone would have prompted that
God helps those who helps themselves. We have a great opportunity to do just that coming up in November.
I don’t think it started with the election of Obama. I do think God removed his hand of protection from the US, yes.
