Some will say that this is beating a dead horse.
Quite the contrary.
Since the first term of the Obama administration, we have seen and heard some things that identified where he would take the nation. Or more accurately, things that president Obama has said was where the nation was already. The nation was already in a spiritual decline.
The nation’s decline was more of an decline in the people that claim to know God.
There are three positions that professed believers are in bed with president Obama.
The positions of anti Semitism, abortion, and homosexuality.
I must remind you that America, as a nation is not the people of God. It is rather God’s people within the nation of America.
Just like the children of Israel, the Lord warned Israel that when they enter the promised land, they were not to allow the former inhabitants to dwell there. They must be expelled from the land lest they cause you to serve other gods.
Exodus 23:30-33 “Little by little I will drive them out from before you, until you have increased, and you inherit the land. And I will set your bounds from the Red Sea to the sea, Philistia, and from the desert to the River. For I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hand, and you shall drive them out before you. You shall make no covenant with them, nor with their gods. They shall not dwell in your land, lest they make you sin against Me. For if you serve their gods, it will surely be a snare to you.”
For years, homosexuals in our churches have played church music, sung, and written many of the songs we sing in church today. All done in the house of worship.
The infiltration took place years ago so from the start, we were already corrupted with the world. Over time, our hearts became callous and desensitized to the Lord. We refused to change our wicked ways. At the right moment, a man (Obama) would rise to proclaim that those that practice homosexuality are our “brothers and sisters.”
And without a fight, and without question, under their breath, folk would disagree with the president, but they would not abandon him to become the first “black” president.
Sadly, people do not believe that when you disagree with a position they agree with, yet agree with that person, that there is no difference.
It’s just like a person saying, “I disagree with righteousness but I agree with God.”
How stupid is this?
Just as the children of Israel failed to remove these nations and their gods out of the land, we refused to remove homosexuality from the house of the Lord. Our refusal to remove these gods from our lives is what started this mess to begin with. It is important to note that these gods of adultery, fornication, porn, masturbation, were already operating in the house of the Lord. These things opened the door to homosexuality in the house of worship to be widely accepted.
Particularly in the church where black people worship, we have become sympathetic to those involved with homosexuality and have taken on the attitude “who are we to judge?”
This vile attitude should have been a warning to us that we were about to agree with a position that is expressly against the known will of God.
Now we must understand that as long as nothing has happened just yet, the Lord is giving us space to repent as a believer, as a church, and as a nation.
Repentance level number one. Disagree with sin and disconnect from sin.
Repentance level number two. Disagree with sin and disconnect from people that insist on sin.
To disconnect is difficult for some because of the emotional attachment to the act and to the people that commit such acts. However, God is gracious but His grace is given to the humble, not to the proud.
The support that president Obama is enjoying from the black community comes from the church.
Again, the statistics do not lie.
In 2008, 95% of the African American vote went to the president. In 2012, 93% of the African American vote went to the president. African Americans make up 13% of the US population. According to the Barna Group, 43% of African Americans profess attending church. So it is conclusive that Obama enjoys support from African Americans, and that from professed church goers; despite the fact that two of Obama’s policies violate the Word of God.
I will add that there is a difference between going to church and being a child of God.
Therefore, it is a very clear indication that the majority of professed believers did not care about what the Lord said in His holy Word.
When you disagree with a supporter of Obama, you are on the wrong side of their version of history.
Quite the contrary.
Black people that continue to support the anti Biblical policies of the president are on the wrong side of HIS (GOD’S) STORY.
Throughout president Obama’s term in office, he has been challenged but he really hasn’t been tested. Sadly, he was protected from Benghazi, the IRS scandal, Obamacare, and other incidences that would have seemed insurmountable challenges to a presidency that warranted a serious approach to visit upon him impeachment and possible removal from office by the Senate.
Unless we repent as a people of God, we will be part of the greatest challenge the president will face.
President Bush was challenged with the first recession, but we never took note. 9/11 came and that was a big test, the stock market lost almost 7 percent. Bush got Ariel Sharon to agree to move the Israelis out of Gaza. Katrina followed. 6 months later, Ariel Sharon went into a coma and eight years later, he would pass away. On the day of his burial, an earthquake rocked the area. Then in 2008, the nation was hit with another Wall Street decline.
Guess what percentage was lost?
Seven years later, another 7 percent.
Between October 22, 2012 and October 31, 2012, super hurricane Sandy damaged NY, NJ just after NY and NJ approved SSM.
Presidency after presidency, the policies to force a two state solution on Israel has resulted in catastrophic events against the US. In speech after speech with Obama, he still speaks about a two state solution in violation of Genesis 12:1-7. On top of that, people in his administration cursed the Prime Minister of Israel.
Should we abandon Obama because he insists and persists on a two state solution?
Many will argue that this is not anti-Semitism.
When you negotiate a policy that demands Israel to give up land for peace, it is anti-God. God gave that land to Israel to share it with no one, including the Palestinians.
The Bible commands us to pray for all that is in authority according to 1 Timothy 2:1-4.
But the Bible also declares in Genesis 12 that God will bless those that bless (Abram) Israel and curse those that curse (Abram) Israel.
God still has the power to turn his heart. But we should also pray that God would turn our hearts as we repent for not seeing the handwriting on the wall. Should the president continue to insist and persist on this ill fated policy, we must ask the Lord to spare the land. No one, including the Lord, wants judgment to fall. If anyone advocates and is giddy about judgment is on the wrong side of the Bible.
Notice what Amos 5:18-20 says
“Woe to you who desire the day of the Lord!
For what good is the day of the Lord to you?
It will be darkness, and not light.
It will be as though a man fled from a lion,
And a bear met him!
Or as though he went into the house,
Leaned his hand on the wall,
And a serpent bit him!
Is not the day of the Lord darkness, and not light?
Is it not very dark, with no brightness in it.”
Judgment can be averted when we repent and turn from our wicked ways.
We must also be mindful that judgment and chastisement are necessary because the Lord is using these things to turn the hearts of men back to Him.
Also, to put dates and times on certain items on God’s timeline (such as the rapture and a second event called the Second Coming of the Lord) is foolish and dangerous. For in doing so, the faith of some believers will be overthrown.
Jesus told us to do four things.
WATCH, PRAY, BE READY, OCCUPY.
As far as Obama is concerned, should he harden his heart like Pharaoh, and should African Americans harden their hearts to support his policies, it is inevitable that what is about to hit this nation will shake this nation to its core. Perhaps it will even be unrecoverable and the end times will proceed.
Some will argue, “Why Pray!” Because we do not know everything. We do not have the entire picture. God could add years to this nation and God can shorten the time of this nation.
It is all dependent on what we do as a people.
But time is running out.
