"If that were possible"
Those are comforting words for today as I listen to Christians talking about being offended when Jesus' name is spoken in prayer at the inauguration ("Separation of church and state" and "It would offend nonChristians")
Those are reassuring words when I hear Christians talk about the "rights" of homosexuals to marry, the "rights" of women to choose when they will give birth (and therefore should have access to abortion).
According to the Lord Jesus the elect will not be deceived about who their Lord is, and from where salvation comes. But, Jesus did warn that His "little ones" CAN be led astray, Matthew 18:6But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.
It seems there will be some answering to do for those who convinced many of God's "little ones" that Barack Obama would be the agent of godly change.
Here is a recent post from a brother in Christ who has been watching closely:
"For those say they are Christian, the test has now come regarding how you view your God. Is your God a passive bearded grandpa who has no involvement in the affairs of men? Or is your God one Who, as He is invited, will actively bless a nation, and set that nation apart from others? And will the same God, when He is actively dis-invited, let that nation descend into self obliteration?
"Is being 'Christian' supposed to be the key to national prosperity because of our active relationship being submitted to the God of the Bible? Or is being "Christian" just an opinion of life morality, and life philosophy?"
God continues to be Who He has always been: the righteous judge of nations. Time and again, God has allowed the sin of a nation to "reach its fullness," and then sent another nation to as a "scourge" and a judgement.
What sins has God deemed so "depraved," so "unclean" that they "profane the Name of Your God"? What sins has God called "abomination" and "perversion"?
What sins has God become so passionate about as to say this?
In just three days our new president has set into motion
1) The rapid unraveling of what little is left in terms of societal fabric in African nations (what a betrayal, considering Obama’s heritage) by giving Planned Parenthood the support Bush denied them
Soon enough American believers will get what they have been praying for – believers full of the Spirit, living by faith, and many who will now finally come to personally know the Lord Jesus Christ and be known by Him. We will have the revival we longed for. Because the only conditions that foster revival are a broken spirit and a contrite heart. Now we will truly be brothers with our Chinese brethren.
