What is going on with President Obama and who is behind the scene?
Only One Man
I ran across an article around one month ago addressing President Obama and his lack of accomplishment. The woman that wrote it was presumably speaking up not only for herself but perhaps millions that have painstaking questions. She questioned Obama and his promises to the American people. Her concern was based on the rise in unemployment, the foreclosures, the health care reform, the thousand of troops troops going to Iraq and Afghanistan. lost wages, lack, education, food shortage, the deficit, global warming, taxes and more. She addressed that the banks were pulled to a safety net with the stimulus program but were again robbing from the poor for their own gain. I felt compassion for her. She was genuine in her concern for the American people.The article and her despair weighed on my heart. I found myself praying for her and all that have been affected by the economy. I know my picture does not look pretty by the 'worlds' standards. I have lost much, but have gained more. Most everyone has been touched in some manner by the economy. Not only the USA, but in each nation. She mentioned the dilemma had started with the Bush administration and was handed over to him, but his actions and promises were empty.
I wanted to sit and chat with this person but that not being likely I let it go, with prayer. Then I was led to write what I would share with her, to many that will read this 'hub.' I would not usually address a political article. It is not in my 'league of interest' to write about. Then it came to me that maybe one person could be inspired or encouraged and I needed to do this. Life is not about all me. I write not for my gain or my 'self righteousness' but for the Glory of God . He owns it all anyway. I am only made 'righteous' by the Blood of Jesus. My fingers started writing by the leading of the Holy Spirit.
Lucifer, the Enemy, Evil One, Satan, Adversary (many names) rules this earth. We live in a fallen world. Lucifer was thrown from heaven with his followers. He believed he should have the power God had. When he was thrown from heaven he made it his job to separate everyone and anything from God as possible. We are not talking about some 'wimp' here. He if large, strong, powerful. Lucifer/Satan was one of the smartest, strongest angels created in the universe. He is the real thing. It is in the Word written over 2,000 years ago.(Genesis) The enemy's first temptation was Adam and Eve. Satan tempted Eve, she then told Adam it was OK to eat from the tree of 'Life' They sinned against God. God still loved Adam and Eve. They were ashamed and put on clothing, they worked hard in the land. Eve had labor pains giving birth to her sons. One son killed the other. On and on, sin nature was on earth. The devil is here on earth today. He has not been thrown into the lake of fire, yet. God knew mankind would fall short of his "'Glory''
When we come to an age of accountability the feelings of a sin nature come alive. Everyone sins, we are born into sin. Have you ever noticed the first word from a baby's mouth is usually 'Da Da' (Father)The second word is usually 'mine' ( me, self, I) The Good news is because Christ went to the cross for us our sins are forgiven. ( John 3:16) When we choose to have a personal relationship with Jesus. That my friends is HUGE. Christianity is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. His Grace carries us because he wants no one lost, but the wages of sin is death.I t is but for the Grace of God, that I sit here sharing with you today.
The enemy knows his doomsday is coming. Believers will spend eternity in Heaven where there iare no sin, tears, sadness, guilt, remorse, suffering, illness, theft, or lack. God did not create 'hell' on earth. Many choose to do 'life' their own way. Many believe the lies from the enemy that Jesus is not the only way to salvation or freedom. Many have hardened hearts because of loss, pain, or suffering.This is not from God. The Devil is tricky,clever and smart. He does not want anyone to have a personal relationship with Jesus, the Savior. Sin lies, greed, deceit, jealousy, ego, anger, power, more, me, self and I and false profits are the root of the problem. The enemy wants us to burn our Bible's. He wants to take you down slippery slopes into the pits of death to hell.
We all make errors. 'Christ can turn all things for the good for those that love Him' (1 Corinthians.) We repent move forward with Jesus and we are made as clean as snow. There are over 3,000 promises in the word for God's children. The Bible is the only book that has stood the test of time and is true today. God is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. God does not change not lie. No scientist, atheist, church, cult, group, teacher, no one or nothing has proven the Bible to be false. Many have tried but to no avail, it can not, nor will it be proven.
God pulled me from my self destruct and despair of sin and temptation to living a life of joy, promise, peace and prosperity. I am his sheep, I got lost, he pulled me back in. Willingly I made a choice to follow him. I did not like myself or what I had been doing. Oh I am having fun now, I thought. That was an utterly hopeless lie. I was in denial. The enemy did not have to mess with me much I was lost. When I was 'born again' Satan tried his attack over and over.
Purpose, Power and Life is with Jesus. It is beyond race, creed, culture. If a 'religion', Methodist, Baptist, Lutheran, Catholic or Timbuktu do not share the Good News of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit one may feel empty and leave. The devil wants this. They may be lukewarm they may be comfortable go to 'church' weekly and claim Christianity. There are many scenarios but Satan uses this tactic to draw one from the promises of Jesus. Just as in the 'old testament' there is hypocrisy in some church's. Many get turned off to 'Christianity.' I went to a 'Religion' church for a time. I felt empty, dry, lonely. There were many rules to take communion and so on. We followed a red book. I went to doctrine studies for 6 weeks before I could 'belong' to the church. I left the church after a few months. I was seeking and I did not know what for exactly, but in hindsight it was Jesus I wanted. I needed the Holy Spirit but did not know it. In time, in pain I was led to a church.I was 'born again' in a Christian, Bible teaching church , the 'word of God' church. My life changed on that day. Jesus Christ, anointed one, was alive in me. I was baptized in The Holy Spirit. Our 'friend teacher and guide'. Before Jesus arose into heaven he told his disciples and other followers, he did not leave us alone but with the Holy Spirit that in dwells in us. We can live on Earth in peace, joy, meekness, kindness, gentleness, self-control, hope and love. No one can buy or sell these gifts. There is plenty to give and plenty left over in us to give more. This is an abundant life. Christ knows our needs and will supply for us. We do not ride on angels wings on planet earth but we are promised he is for us, not against us. When we go to him in prayer, he hears us. He answers. He is our Father. He knows what is best for us.
The state of the 'world' could have you and your loved ones in a mess. The enemy is having a hay day. You could be mad at God, maybe you are mad at the President. Perhaps you are sad, you might not have any hope. This is deceit from the enemy. Maybe you tried church and felt 'let down'. Maybe you did not 'fit' in. The enemy does not want you in church. He deceives.He does not want you to know Jesus.Jesus is truth.The devil is evil.There are many in congress that do not believe, some do but they all need our prayers.Our President needs our prayers. We are told in the Word to pray for our leaders. Maybe their hearts have been lied too. Maybe they had false teaching. Maybe they will never come around to Jesus, maybe they will. Nothing is impossible with God. God says,"We will know them by their fruits."(Matthew 7:20) Man will fail us. Man is not perfect. I am far from perfect. I desire to to the will of God. His promises are for our benefit, not his. He knew we would face challenges but he promises to carry us. He does not lie. He Loves. He created you and I for a purpose. The devil will try to rob you, kill you and destroy you.
My dependence is not in the President. I voted for President Obama. Was I tricked? Is he clever? I believed he was a 'God' sent for the USA His election gave hope to a fallen world. Greed, Lies, deceit. He gave hope. Hope is a good thing. I do not know what is going on behind closed doors. I know 'his fruits' seem a bit overpowering to me. 'Children of God' our dependence is in the Creator of the Universe. Christ is going to come back to reign. Bible Prophecy is being fulfilled. No matter how the picture looks in your situation or the 'world' that is quite mixed up and perilous. Look to Jesus. Put your trust in him that created you and I for a purpose. Do not be afraid, Christ is for us not against us. Do you not think he is Larger then Obama? He is still a miracle working God. If he does not work a miracle in congress today, it does not mean he will not work one in your life. He will if you trust in him with your whole heart, soul and mind. It is a choice. Or you can trust in the 'system' get all riled up which is what the enemy wants.Use the name above every name "Jesus" the enemy will flee. With Christ we will overcome. Christ has overcome the world.
A believer knows where they are going when they leave this earth.They are going home.They are going to the light. They are going to heaven to be with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit If you do not know this do you think about Life after Death? Hell is a place you do not want to be after you die on earth. When our time is over, we go to eternity. There is no escape. Hell is dark, evil, fire, no water putting it lightly. Heaven is the Light, no sin, no tears, no sadness, no worries, no illness. It is Glorious. We can not comprehend the paradise that await Gods children.
There are vast temptations out there. God did not create greed, lust, porn, cutting, abortion, lies, deceit, cults, witchcraft, tarot cards, x-rated movies, prostitution, gangs, political cover ups, theft, abuse, rape, sex trade, debt, guns, robbery, starving children, abortion, cults, cancer, polio, diabetes, obesity, anorexia, alcoholism, addiction, drugs, lost jobs, self seeking, terrorism, socialism on and on. The commandments came off the wall in public schools in 1963. The Bible came out of the schools.The Lords Prayer, and now the name of 'Jesus' can not be 'used in the public school or events. This is ludicrous. Merry CHRISTMAS is not seen in malls, government buildings, schools, public arenas, lest 'someone' get offended. It is not heard by the clerks in the banks, or department stores. It was 'Happy Holidays' I do not think believers had a vote on that one. The Birth of Jesus, our Savior is the greatest gift ever given. Jesus is coming back for his 'church' (believers) soon. We get closer each day. Sin is the problem in our World. Yes, we all have sin but the more you get to know Jesus the more you love him and want to live for him. God knew all would fall short. He helps us pick up and move forward. He wants to be involved into our lives. He loves to Bless his children. He is the Father, we are his children.
Many will remain deceived. Many will not get into heaven. I did not write this. It is written in the Bible. God created Hell for Satan and his followers. The 'Light' or The 'Dark' is a choice. Many will turn to Christ. Many have no clue who the Savior is. They have not been told.They will be told before Jesus returns.They will know, many will accept him and have a changed life and heart. They will be led by the Spirit of God. Many are into the ways of the 'world' wealth, power, greed. They will have until their last breath to claim Jesus. Jesus is no respecter of persons,Jew or Gentile. Trust Jesus for all your needs. It is obvious 401 k, stock, Cd's, banks, employers, wall street, retirement, government, Presidents will let you down. Obama could use divine intervention. I believe if he had one 'children of God would know it' He has a full plate to deal with. I do not think he is on the side for 'Jesus' as he mentioned in his campaign. This is not a judgment call, rather an observation. Pray for our enemies Christ says. Pray for the lost. He came for sinners. He came to redeem to restore. He is the way, truth and life. The congress needs our prayer. Our Nation needs prayer We all need Prayer. Prayer is answered. Faith can move mountains. Know Jesus, Know truth. No Jesus, No truth.
No thing or good works will get you a ticket to eternal life with God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. By inviting Jesus into the heart we get to heaven.(John 3:16) Deny Jesus, you deny God the Father, he will deny you into Heaven. He is the Sheppard we are the sheep. Sheep follow the good Sheppard. He does not drive them, like cattle. He uses his staff to pull in the lost. He uses his staff to keep the wolf from the sheep. His sheep know his voice. Some will be tempted to stray, he goes after them. Christ does not will that anyone perish. Sin is ramped. We grow in Christ or go to Christ through mistakes and errors. 'His' love endures forever. God is Love. Christ is forever. He comforts, He gives favor to his children. Believers live in the 'world' but are not of the 'world.' Christ will not give us more then we can handle. Our Lord Blesses us with gifts and surprises. He dries the tears. His 'church' will be lifted out of here when he returns. Alleluia.
If you have not invited Jesus into your heart you can say this simple prayer. It is found in Romans CHAPTER 10 VS. 9 & 10. ' I repent of my sins, I believe IN MY HEART Jesus died on the cross for my sins. He is Lord and Savior of my life. He rose from the dead and lives in me. I invite Jesus into my heart.'
If you have said that prayer in sincerity then congratulations you are 'born again' You have salvation, a free ticket to Heaven. you are forgiven. Just think Christ carried the Cross for you, for me. The angels rejoice and sing in Heaven when one that is lost is found. You made the best choice you will ever make in your life. Jesus is so happy for you and loves you so much. Get ready for the adventure of a lifetime. There is no 'dulls-ville' in being a believer In Christ Jesus.+ + +
