So What if Obama Really is the Antichrist?
A Message from a Conservative Christian to Others of Like Mind
As far as the election is concerned. The worst thing that can happen is that nation will collaspse and we'll all lose everything. So what? Psalm 146:3 says: "Do not put your trust in princes, in mortal men, who cannot save."
I don't think that will happen. It's not what I want, but it could, since all that ever really lasts is Faith, Hope and Love. God already knew this, so it will be OK.
When the prophet Habakkuk saw that God was going to punish ancient Israel for their sins by sending an even more sinful nation to capture them, he was also shocked and terrified, and cried out to God about how unfair that was and how he didn't understand it, but then he said ... "I will stand on the wall and wait to see what the LORD tells me." Then God explained His plan. And how although it would be bad for a while, very bad, in the end, it would be better.
So then Habakkuk said, "Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior. The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to go on the heights. "
Since we know the media is biased, and we know the polsters are biased, I don't really think it's as bad as it seems, but even if it is ... even if Barack Obama becomes president, and the democrats destroy this nation ... which I don't think will happen, but even if it does ... Jesus is still King. God is still good, and I will rejoice in who God is. Even if Barack Obama really is the antichrist, I follow the real Christ. As a Bill Johnson says often, "Don't worry what hand you're dealt, God can win with a pair of twos."
If you are a Christian and the thought of Barack Obama becoming president of the United States frightens you, then you need to think about this... 2 Tim 1:7 says, "For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind."
Consdider this, are you really afraid of Obama? Is He more powerful than God? Don't fear any man. Don't fear any government. "Fear God and honor the king."
When you pray before you go to vote, don't ask God what sins of the nation need to be purged, ask Him what you need to do to be more like Jesus. Then trust Him. Don't worry and don't get angry. God's got it covered.
