Unanswered? No. We have been living in the book of Revelation ever since the time of Christ’s birth and before. We just are where we are in the Book of Revelation and in the history of an ever-increasingly EVIL society. It is written, and it is time that certain things are to happen. Perhaps we may be almost in the 37th and 38th Chapters of Ezekiel as it coincides with Revelation.
True Christians have petitioned God in great numbers, seeing the evil of this communist, Obama, and before him, the socialist, debauched Clintons, and now the Lord has spoken. I think he has said ENOUGH! It is almost past time to repent and more near the time to “let him that is filthy be filthy still”. However, I also think that we must warn to repentance and turning from our sinful behaviors as watchmen on the wall.
All of this will be designed for one purpose and one purpose only: to control the masses and to motivate them to follow and worship the beast; Obamessiah, America's new overlord I mean president.
A time of spiritual testing is upon us all. May the true God and Father of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ have mercy upon us all and may His Holy Spirit help us to remain faithful to the true and living God, may we remain faithful to Christ as Salt and Light, courageous and strong in the midst of a wicked and perverse generation. I ask this in the name that is above every name; Jesus Christ our Lord, amen.
I need to fix the message (PRESERVE OUR CONSTITUTION). It is not relevant at this point.
Baloney! There is no God. That’s why he didn’t rescue us. Hitler rose. Stalin rose. Pol Pot, Mao, I could go on. This isn’t “our” fault; it’s the fault of the stupid and socialist-loving citizens of this doomed country who voted to give up what we had. To paraphrase the world’s most famous America-hater: for the first time in my life I am ashamed of my country. I can’t believe that there is another country with a population as stupid as ours.
Then those prayerful pleas for the more Godly man were ignored. Petition denied. God’s will and plan were executed despite the pleas of millions for something better.
It is highly presumptuous to declare outright that you know the intentions of the Almighty. Everything happens for a reason ... but we cannot know that reason this immediately. One could argue that McCain lost because of events beyond his control — and thus that he could not have won this election.
That bad things occur in our lives — politically or personally — does not necessarily mean God has withdrawn his providence. Perhaps Obama’s victory IS devine providence in the same way a tragic life-event can be a humbling and faith renewing event.
God does not work through agreeable events alone. When Carter was elected, it was a mere 4-years before dawn in America. I prefer to have faith that God has not abandoned this nation ... that God will not abandon this nation.
We should consider this another 9/11 attack, "from a faceless coward". This time, that coward is the electorate, the thieves, freeloaders, Marxists/Leninists. May it also, in the dark times ahead, lead us to lean on Him - not as a helpless onlooker, the "God is my co-pilot" idol of too many Christians, but as the One Who is Creator, Sustainer, Redeemer, and Judge of all men.
The question to all of us: Will we acknowledge God's sovereign hand in this? His hand, after all, cannot be stayed, and nothing comes to pass without His will.
I’m not Christian, so most of this gloss I skipped. But this may be the case, that G-d has turned his back to us. I mark it to the day none of the six branches of government (judicial, legislative, executive in both federal and state government) came to remedy and rescue the woman, Terri Schlinder, from the vile Judge’s evil decree that she be killed.
“Most of my life is history, but I’m certain I will live to see the end of the USA.”
Quit being silly.
Bill Keller’s from Tampa Bay. He was on 2 TV stations and both times, CAIR took him down. He was telling the truth about radical islam but the truth doesn’t seem to fly these days.
I guess you can’t stop it. So it was written and so it shall come to be.
EMBRYONIC STEM CELL RESEARCH
Amen, my thoughts exactly.
The beginning murder of innocent babies in 1973 set us on the path of destruction.
I see a new tagline in there somewhere...
Evil won this one.
Your use of the word "heretic" got me thinking.
My first thought was that Black Liberation Theology is anything but Christian. So Obama can't be a heretic, because he's never been a believing Christian in the first place.
In polite company, before saying what I just said, you're supposed to issue the proviso "only God knows what's in his heart."
But I think we know what's in the heart of a man who not only condones infanticide, but uses his position of power to stop those who try to stop it.
“After I heard that Obama had won, my first thought was one of surprising clarity; I knew that from this point on it would be about my and my family’s relationship with God, our dependence on Him, and nothing else.”
My thoughts exactly. It is all about Him and our relationship with Him. My hope is in the Lord!
The salvation of the righteous comes from the Lord; he is their stronghold in time of trouble. The Lord helps them and delivers them; he delivers them from the wicked and saves them, BECAUSE they take refuge in Him.
There seems to be much groaning and gnashing of teeth in this thread. Where is the trust in God?
New tag line.
I've often wondered how God perceives our attempt to meddle with his time-line.
The trend in vote percentages indicates that this is pretty much the peak. I give it ten years before reverse gear kicks in.
Pretty wholesale agree.
However . . .
[snowing just now with a cold wind . . . an ill-wind blowing]
Yes, there’s much to criticize about “purpose driven/emerging church”
WHEN they deviate from the priorities and truths of The Gospel and Scripture . . . which in some cases is quite sadly considerable.
The apostate traditional church has been off the track for decades.
I don’t know that the purpose driven/emerging church stuff has been wholesale off the track in all respects from the beginning. I think major chunks have wandered more and more off track. Some may be making some healthy adjustment. We shall see.
[thundering & lightening in a snow storm???? Wierd!]
Anyway—I mostly agree with your post.
And there it is in a nutshell, why this country is where it's at today. Pride.
The effect of Obama’s election is that it will empower those who oppose the work of God. Those who serve satan will be bolder and more aggressive than ever. They will be targeting like never before, true followers of Christ. Spiritual crack dealers like Oprah who peddle New Age garbage are ok. Those who promote cults like Mormonism, the JWs, Scientology, Kaballah, and others are ok. The false religions like Islam, Buddhists, and others are ok. Those in the Christian left with their social agenda are ok.
Their target will be zeroed in on those who believe, preach, and teach the Bible is God’s inspired, inerrant Word, representing Absolute Truth and our final authority in all matters. They will be out to destroy true followers of Jesus Christ. This will come in many forms, such as laws to call the Bible hate speech as other countries have already done. For the first time, real and tangible persecution is going to be felt by those who refuse to compromise the Truth of the Bible and preach the Gospel.
You are right...we’ve been in Revelation long before Jesus birth. It’s not a literal 7 year period...it’s much longer than that....7 years was only a symbolic number...
He already did, some time back. This was our last chance, as a nation, to have His favor return to us. Christians in general have only themselves to blame, settling for treading water all these years in the Republican party, which is moving more and more to the left, even - though more slowly - away from pro-life causes, where support from the RNC has been little more than lip-service for years.
They’ve abandoned their base, and are putting forth very mediocre candidates like McCain, who have more support with some Democrats than true conservative Christians. And we’ve let them do it. Because we were more interested in merely putting in “anybody” who could at least mouth pro-life sentiments, just to avoid allowing pro-death Dems to simply walk in unopposed. We should have been more active within our own ranks maintaining - and increasing - an overall Christian worldview in this country, which would reap its own political rewards. This has never been done. A naive trust in the RNC was left to substitute, and it has yielded a very poor harvest.
I’ve been saying this for years, and have been called everything you can think of and more because of it. But I am no traitor! The Republicans have abandoned me and my own Christ-centered values; I have not abandoned them. On a national level, I will never even consider voting Republican again. I will work to help foster a viable new party that will maintain and (at least eventually) increase its voter support in as short a timspan as possible. I might still vote for some Republicans at more local levels, but, nationally, they cannot get it done. Fostering a new party cannot do any worse.
We are headed into Night. And, again, we Christians, of all types, have brought this on ourselves.
I have wondered for well over a decade if Revelation 18 was speaking of the US. I wonder no more.
When we stripped His name from our public buildings, made it illegal to pray to Him in schools, legalized the killing of his little ones and started calling sodomy "marriage", we sent Him a message.
God is jealous but He's not one to force Himself on people. If you don't want God in your life, then that's what you'll get. Of course, the consequences may not immediately manifest themselves but eventually, they won't be pretty.
This isn't the beginning. It started several decades ago but recent events (9/11, the financial mess, Obama) indicate that the slope on which we're sliding is now a little steeper and we're probably approaching the end game.
Garbage. Any god that would take his protection away from the greatest country to ever exist because we elected a Marxist isn’t worth spitting on. If that’s the god you believe in you’re welcome to him.
Description; Barabbas means son of shame
Is Barry short for Barabbas?
You are absolutely right. I was just telling my whole family this morning; The Lord is sick of this. We will drop to our knees or else. This country has stood idly by while the kids are being indoctrinated in the schools. We have stood by (some not all) watching American Idol and Dancing with the Stars while Rome burns. Well here we are.
We need to regroup, turn back to God and bring back conservatism or this country will fall.
It is hard to understand God’s plan. In the 1930’s, he saw fit to allow the Fascists in Italy, the Nazis in Germany, the Commies in the USSR and the Japanese War party to come to power all at the same time. Millions died. Who knows what He’s got up His sleeve for us now?
We American Christians have lived in an artificial world for the past 200 years. The ancient Roman Christians who were thrown to lions and the persecuted true Christians of the middle ages who were burned at the stake for "heresy" of believing that the bible means what it says were the typical Christians that Jesus Christ talked about when He was here on earth. We were not called to be happy, wealthy, carefree Christians living in a world that loves God and His Son, we are called to be a hated minority living in a world that hates Jesus Christ, and we WILL be persecuted if we live as God has commanded us to live. I believe that the generation of Godless young Americans who elected Obama will be the generation that goes through the Great Tribulation, and the Christians of today will not be here on earth when that reign of terror begins.
The experiences of those Christians in America who went before us for the past 2 centuries was not typical of the Christian experience in most of the world for the past 2000 tears. But what is in store for us in the next few days, months, or years before God calls his true Church out of this dying, doomed, Jesus-hating world will be typical. I expect to see real, official, severe persecution of biblical Christians here in the US, beginning in the next four years and only growing more severe as the reign of AntiChrist approaches. But I take solace in the promise of our beloved Lord and Savior Jesus Christ whose word can not be broken,
Luke 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
FRiend, your fight is not with me, it's with God, but if I can help you in any way, let me know. But please, for your own soul's sake, don't blaspheme God Almighty. FReegards - OB1
Just on this thread alone, I think there are at least 10 believers still in America.:')
So many of us have been praying. God says he hears our prayers. The answer isn't always yes though. Sometimes it's no or not yet. Last night I had a lot of "why Lord?" questions too.
Is this the beginning of the end? I don't know. If it is, He will remove His believers from harm before things get too bad.
I'm wondering though....could the answer have been yes last night, after all? Maybe America is too spoilt and times will unfortunately have to get tougher before our nation really turns back toward him. JAT.
Ping to read later
Give me a break. My idea of Jesus isn’t of someone who plays games, is fickle or malicious. From the posts from other Christians on this thread half of them don’t see their God that way either.
You're partly right IMHO. As terrible as the Terri Schindler outrage was, it was the natural progression of the immoral state of America's rapidly declining culture that first gave us Roe v Wade and 50 million murdered babies. Don't be surprised when at some future point in time the courts rule that anyone who is adjudged to be a burden on society or his/her family will be legally euthanized.
Continue to pray for this nation....
Thank you and the same to you.
