Hey y’all, I’m with you. All day today I have been reflecting on how we are eternal spiritual beings leading temporary human lives.

So, when the wrath of God is poured out, which the USA is willfully actively arranging sooner not later, those of us who truly have our names written in the Lamb’s Book of Life, will simply be that much closer to leaving this realm and going Home, to our REAL home.

... so know Him well !!!

[People get ready, Jesus is coming, soon we’ll be going home, people get ready, Jesus is coming, to take from the world His own. There will be a day when we will be divided right and left for those who know Him and those who do not know, those who know Him well will meet Him in the air — hallelujah — God is with us; those who do not know, they will hear, depart, I knew you not; for my friends, you see, there will be a day when we’ll be counted, so know Him well, know Him well.]

He will never leave nor forsake his people but He can turn his back against nations. Read Ezekiel 14.

I do not believe God has removed Himself or His hand from America. I believe He loves America, and those whom He loves, He chastises. He may withhold blessings from us, but He has not withdrawn His Spirit and turned us over to ourselves...yet. I believe there is a remnant of faithful left in this country, and because of that remnant, He hasn’t turned His back on us. We MUST pray for Barack Obama and the others in our government. It may not be easy for us to do; heck, it may be downright painful, but it is obligation as Christians. If we can’t be obedient in praying for our enemies, in this case our president elect, and having Christ’s love (not our fleshly love, but the love of Jesus in that we seek Him to draw them to Him) in our heart for them, then we cannot complain if God does leave us for good.

I believe a great chastening is coming to America and this nation is going to be literally torn apart at the seams to acheive it. I pray for Obama’s salvation and for the evil apostates who are in our government which may happen as our nation will shatter in front of their eyes

In all honesty, we deserve more than a chastening, but God is merciful and His mercies are renewed daily. The choice is ours. We accept that He is not pleased, and we turn back to Him in repentance, and seek His face, and His healing touch can come to America, or we continue in the same manner that has brought us to this moment in time, and He withdraws Himself completely from us. We may have to go through a wilderness for a bit, but there is deliverance. Let us learn from the Israelites and not be murmurers or complainers, but be thankful for the chastising and draw close to Him, and see a revival sweep this land. Really, the choice is ours.

Go back to what worked and learn from what has not. The Founders warned us of a nation void of religious principles. Even the most fringe of them as far as his religious belief Thomas Jefferson understood that without such this nation would fall. The book The Light and The Glory shows the early surceses and failures of our nation from the days of Columbus - post George Washington.

We have allowed so called preachers of the Gospel in our churches and to become spokesmen for Christanity. Such have often gone unchallanged. Among the biggest enemy of a free GOD fearing United States is groups like Americans for Separation of Church and State which often have ministers which operate from within these church seeking credibility as Christian spokesmen.

Certain laws are absolutes and even apply to our Creator. The most revealing one is opposing forces. There is GOD who is pure and good. There is Satan the evil one who destroys. the two can not coexist in the same place Although GOD has domain over Satan he can not be with him as Satan is sin.

A second law is Nature abhors voids and fills them quickly. If GOD is not present because He will not be where he is not asked to be then that leaves what then to fill the void?

I remember prayer in school although I was about 6 when the USSC ruled with Murray. Our local district ignored it as such till I was in high school. I was high school class of 76. School was safe. Growing up several of our school principals were either preachers or Ordained Deacons in their church. They didn't leave their Christanity at the school door step either.

The fight for our nation isn't a political one it's a moral and spiritual one. The last President who really understood it was Reagan. Despite the mans faults he was the last POTUS who truly focused on our real national illness. He sought the council on those who worked in the trenches trying to undo the moral decay of The Great Society. He didn't say Go Away or you'll cost me votes.

We became a nation of settling for degree's of evils. In doing so Evil got it's foot in the door and is now working fast to destroy all that the Founders hoped for us to have. By destroying the moral fiber of our nation evil will bring on our downfall. Everyones attention has been purposely diverted. Many fear the Islamic Boogiemen 5000 miles away while letting prince of darkness abide unchecked even in their homes but especially in national leadership.

The damage has been progressing since the mid 1960's but is now growing rampant as the love of many grows cold. Each generation since the start of The Great Society is becoming more and more detached in conscience. Everyone was looking for the big war US vs Communism/Marxism to happen. It simply waited till we became complacent and walked right in the front door instead of falling from the sky in the form of a bomb or military invasion.They took over from within and began laying their foundation in the United States between WW1 and WW2. By imediate post WW2 they controlled our universities where our next generation of leadership would be taught. They came here from Germany as they had been booted out there between the world wars. They were Marxist.

First hold on to what is yours meaning your family. Men need to be men again in their homes and women need to let them. It is a sacred responsibility not to be taken lightly. It is not a free ticket to abuse or provoke your family to justified anger either.

To the best of your ability protect and preserve it not just from obvious run of the mill thugs but the one who seeks to destroy the soul as well. Limit your business dealings as much as possible to those in your community who share that common bond. Work to save your communities if nothing else in just living by example.

GOD waits with open arms for the nation to ask Him to heal and restore it. But repentance is a must do first step before it can ever happen. This does not mean He has abandoned His chosen either. For He will allow them to grow together amongst the thorns.

Our leaders can be one of two things and the choice is ours. They can be a blessing for a nation putting GOD first or a curse to a nation as a whole that demands GOD get out of it's life. Hold on to your core beiefs and principles make them non negotiable and you'll earn much more respect from leadership from the local governemt to national.

The nation can change but we need skilled leaders to help set it in motion and begin changing peoples hearts again. It happened before beginning in 1979 with about 4-5 men from several different walks in life and different political parties who changed the course of the nation and it can happen again. They launced a social Conservative grassroots movement unseen in Americans modern history. A wise man running for office made their agenda a considerable portion of his. He too changed the face of the nation and even the world much of it for the better.

Rom 13:1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.

Pro 21 :20 The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will.

God is still on the throne !

He is still on the throne where He mets out both blessing and punishment. Obama is someone whose thinking tries to go above that throne and he will sign the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) as soon as he is inaugurated and guess where his presidency will go?

Also this:

5Thus says the Lord:
Cursed are those who trust in mere mortals
and make mere flesh their strength,
whose hearts turn away from the Lord.
6They shall be like a shrub in the desert,
and shall not see when relief comes.
They shall live in the parched places of the wilderness,
in an uninhabited salt land.

7Blessed are those who trust in the Lord,
whose trust is the Lord.
8They shall be like a tree planted by water,
sending out its roots by the stream.
It shall not fear when heat comes,
and its leaves shall stay green;
in the year of drought it is not anxious,
and it does not cease to bear fruit.

9The heart is devious above all else;
it is perverse—
who can understand it?
10I the Lord test the mind
and search the heart,
to give to all according to their ways,
according to the fruit of their doings.

11Like the partridge hatching what it did not lay,
so are all who amass wealth unjustly;
in mid-life it will leave them,
and at their end they will prove to be fools.

12O glorious throne, exalted from the beginning,
shrine of our sanctuary!
13O hope of Israel! O Lord!
All who forsake you shall be put to shame;
those who turn away from you* shall be recorded in the underworld,*
for they have forsaken the fountain of living water, the Lord.

God already knows what Obama will do, God holds the Kings heart in His hand and turns it where He will.

It does not matter what Obama thinks of himself.. his presidency will go exactly where God ordains it to ... we need to hold our nation in prayer. God does not give us a spirit of fear..

You are right he has a spirit of anti-Christ. Read Jeremiah 17:5-13 which really characterizes this election.

It’s not just because of Obama, it’s because we as a nation have turned our backs on Him and He will let us go our own way for a season. And then His judgement will come, not to punish us but to draw us back because He knows that’s the only thing that will do it. It’s out of love, not hate.
