What is going on with President Obama and who is behind the scene?

Updated on June 13, 2012

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.+ + +

Get a Bible, Go to a Bible Based, Holy Spirit Filled Christian Church. It does not need to be a 'Religion' Church. If it is a 'religion' great, please make sure they share the Gospel( BIBLE) truth of Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, and God . You will know, the Holy Spirit will abound. You will be loved, welcomed and accepted. Your seat is reserved for you just as mine was waiting for me and the millions before me. I encourage all my 'friends' listen to the video below. I know it will Bless You.

Written In Love + + +

      amors potpourri My friend I am truly touched with your most gracious comment. It is about our Lord GOD and sharing the gospel truth I once lost was found Amen.

      Skye2day, you are truly God's messenger to people who are looking for guidance and answers. Many people think that God is not real or He has forsaken them, but your articles and your comments shows that God is real and He has not forsaken His creation/children. God uses people like you to bring clarity to complex issues - you become His mouthpiece and many people do not understand that a life that is fully yielded to God is used in this way for God to speak to His children. Keep up the good work!

      Oh OD You can not understand and I do not have all the answers. You do not see the Spiritual side. We are spiritual beings in a tent this 'ole' body will die off one day and the Spirit will go to one side or the other. The children that are not trained up in truth will be in Heaven with God. The parents do not teach because they choose not to believe and live as the world lives. It is sad many of the children grow up and survive not thrive. The do not know of a GOD. It is very sad. God is a just God and will love His children.

      The Light always puts out the dark so evil is not superior to dark. Sorry about that the LIGHT always kills the dark. I feel for you. You just do not see. It is OK I truly believe you are searching for truth but you are trying to devise your own God of your own understanding. That is allot of work. I do not have all the answers if you put as much time into reading the word as writing just maybe you would see that God is reel. May you see the truth in spirit. The enemy does not have to play with you much because he got you. I am so sad about that. He messes with the ones that love Christ so that they will pull from Christ. God defeated Satan on the cross at calvary. God so loved the world he sent his only son to take on all the sin of the world. IF you need evidence look at the stars, moon, miracles, the mountains, the seasons of the year. Look inside. Call on God and ask him. His email is Dear God. He will answer to most anything. He just wants you to know He loves you and wants you to love Him. Is it that hard?? If you have not tried why do you rebuttal Him or dispute His very being. May God Help you. In peace and love

      No God No Peace

      Know God Know Peace

      I am sending link to your email. Thank You

      If you had two inexperienced children that were never taught right or wrong and they committed what you thought was a major wrong. Even though the major wrong was heavily influenced by an evil outsider.

      Would you punish them?

      Would you throw them out of the house to fend for themselves, as they were only children?

      Would you make their children and children's children pay for the original wrong? Would you make them continue to pay even after billions and billions of children had been born from the original two?

      Would you feel responsible for not protecting the original two children against an evil outsider?

      Wouldn't you feel guilty for leaving these children alone and without supervision or training?

      That is what the Biblical God did.

      Opinion Duck I will exalt my GOD in the name of Jesus Christ. I can only pray for you OD. I am sorry you do not believe. I truly am. I am because I once was lost then found. I was dying inside. It is when I asked Jesus as Lord and Savior of my life the Holy Spirit manifested inside of me. We all have body mind and spirit. There is a spiritual realm out there. The enemy known as devil satan lucifer evil dark was thrown from the heavens to the earth. His spirit soars like a lion to devour and kill and destroy because God loves His creation. Yes Eve was tempted and she tempted Adam. They sinned. Sin came into the world. They ate of the tree of good and evil.

      Without the Holy Spirit it is impossible to understand Scripture. You see the Holy Spirit is our helper friend and guide. He does prompt and stir hearts and touch so others will come to Christ. God wants no one to perish. He did not devise sin. The foundation are the ten commandments. We all break those commands. We are born sinners. God sent His son to die a brutal horrid death on the cross so we could be saved or born again and made right with God by the blood of His Son, Jesus.

      Nonbelievers have no way to understand because by choice they have denied Jesus Christ. Knowledge and wisdom are fruits of the Spirit. Men of great courage have Faith. They believe in something greater then themselves. To name a few Solomon, Abraham, Joseph, Paul, John, Luke, Matthew, Moses, Aaron, King David. Believers know that after this difficult life there is a place in Heaven and their name is in the book of life. If you choose to not believe that is your free will. I am giving you a link to a couple of men and woman that died and came back to tell others. You can look if you dare.

      OP are you at peace? If you open the blinds you see the evil. God is not bringing it down sin is bringing the world down. The good news is there is everlasting life with no tears, no sickness, no death because Christ took our place on the cross at calvary. Children of God will be OK because God will keep us covered. We are His. Does a father not love his children. Would you rather be the child of the devil or the child of God?

      If you ask Jesus into your heart, repent of your sin then you will see. If you are sincere and want a change of heart to life in the Light. If you deny Jesus then God the Father will deny you. That is how it is. I did not write the living word. If you deny you be judged for your works. You dont just go to a hole in the ground when you die. Your Spirit goes to where it came from teh Father. You will be on one side of the gulf or the other. This is not sci fi. This is truth and there is no way you can understand unless you can see. You cant see because you do not know Jesus. I am sorry. You can not understand.

      You see I am a sinner but forgiven by the blood of Jesus so when I stand before God I will be righteous.

      God loves you yes you OD. Nothing you have done surprises him. He knows. He calls you to call on Him. Just knock on the door. There is no mistake you landed on this hub and wrote your opinion. The knowledge you desire comes by faith. You will understand scripture. I could write volumes and you would not get it. Christianity is not a religion but a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. You have nothing to loose but misery and all to gain everlasting life and hope for a future in the light. I am praying for you. No hard feelings. You are loved by God. He created you. He weeps because of those that do not believe but his grace is wearing thin. Sin is more ramped and Jesus is returning to reign the earth for a million years. Alleluia. So with that being said you probably understand less then when you asked.

      May GOD open your eyes to the truth. In love and peace.

      You need to read and comment on my hub God, Creator and/or other forces.

      If there is a biblical God, then he alone is the reason that the world is so bad today.

      There is no free will, unless you mean like the biblical story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. Where was there free will?

      Evil is superior to good, no one has to be taught to be evil, but most have to be taught to be good.

      Evil is dominant today as it has been since the beginning of recorded history. Cain kill Abel, and apparently the biblical God couldn't prevent evil from infesting the tree of knowledge.

      Do you have his email address?

      opinion duck. I will pray for your salvation. Jesus came to save the sinners. I am saved from damnation and eternal separation from God. We are given free will to choose. lucifer was thrown from heaven he was the strongest, smartest, handsome angelic being of all Gods creation. God has seen him, so there. He and His followers were thrown from Heaven because He wanted Gods throne. It is written in the Word of God the Bible. Have you read the Bible? I thought so or you would know.

      Look out the window it is obvious that satan roams the earth to devour like a lion. He hates that God loves his creation. He steals, kills, lies, deceives, destroys any to pull them from God. I pray the chains fall off and you see the light. In His Name Jesus Christ. Don't say no one told you so.

      You can not see faith it comes by hearing the Word. In humility I will pray for you. I was once lost then found. Praise to God.

      I am sorry you voted for Obama. I always ask this question: is he doing the work that is pleasing to God? Being the most pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage president in history, the answer is a definite no. Moral issues are more important than social or economic issues and he may make bad decisions in those areas, but no matter wha, the moral areas are of utmost importance. All we can do is pray for Obama himself to change. If not for the country, but for his very soul.

      Great write skye2day. "Lucifer, the Enemy, Evil One, Satan, Adversary rules this earth. We live in a fallen world." We sure do. I was very glad to see Obama elected even though I didn't vote for him. It's the turn of a person of another color. I will not vote for a republican or democrat. The republicans are the party of the rich. I believe, wholeheartedly that after a democrat is elected, that democrat becomes a republican. This country didn't get in a mess from from political party.

      Here is the REAL DEAL. The poor of our nation are "warrior breeders" for the rich. Mark my words here- there will be endless wars with the people at the top who are there. They have no intention of seeking peace. They will decrease the population. They, the businessmen of America and the world really, will find a resource they want and killing will take place. I can EVERYBODY a history lesson but look behind us.

      Obama will bend to BIG BUSINESS. He has no choice. The republican lawyers, democratic lawyers will shut Obama down or anyone else that makes real change.

      Americans think our country will be changed at the voting booths. It will not. Not with these powers in power. This country and the world are in the hands of Satan and Satan is wearing a suit.

      Let's get history right. This country has not, not in 200 years, run a judicial system with honesty or honor. And today, The United States of America is the most imprisoned nation on planet Earth, surpassing China, the most populated country on the planet.

      A savior IS NOT coming from Harvard or Yale. You could say I'm trying to prophesy. Nope. It is mathematics. Lawyers will not run a court-room or police themselves. The media has reported recently about the failures (recently) in our courts.

      But seriously - Americans think it's okay to have to pay crazy money for a lawyer who has no scruples to "help"? Oh please!

      And health-care is a no-brainer. If this nation is under God - then we will heal our brothers and sisters regardless of what an HMO says.

      America and the world are going to HAVE TO take up God's law over all laws. The Golden Rule is not just a good idea. It's the law.

      America CANNOT stand by as hundreds of thousands of East Timorese are killed by M16s made in America, wielded by Indonesians trained in the UNITED STATES of America by Blackwater, now named Xe Services because the name Blackwater is identified with Satan.

      The evil in this world is too much for Christians. And if Christians are not to struggle against evil then why have a national guard or any military? Christians need to fight for Earth - but with other religions because Christians are still deceived. People need to see that lawyers will not save America and Christians should stop voting for them. The people in charge DO NOT believe in God.

      WE are to uphold that Golden Rule. We are supposed to pray, "Our Father, Who is in heaven, hallowed be your name, YOUR will be done, YOUR kingdom come ..." that's on planet Earth. Regardless of Armageddon coming, regardless of the end of the world looming, we are to make Earth resemble heaven. And we will not accomplish this with 1% of the world owning the world and all decisions about it. God's people must unite.

      These lawyers, regardless of color, religion, education - they will not lead America to God. Thank you for allowing my post. God bless you!

      I agree, as the bible plainly states, you are with christ or against him, Obamma is for nothing but himself. He has not fullfilled even one promise or lie and he has certaintly done more to destroy and embarres this country, Christ and our God in one year then all the presidents put together since good ole Geaorge. Like in the days of Moses God has put blinders on the eyes and caused many to believe and to follow a false anti-christian, pro muslim, evil greedy leader to fullfil his will which seems to include the destruction of the USA and all Americian Christians. Good work President Obama, we are half way to the gullitine. Just a few more lies and your brother Satan can have his way.

      America's political system is very corrupt. It is more based on a desire for power and control rather than, one nation under God! President Obama could truly desire to do great things, but he is President, not Dictator. God always has the last say and my prayer is that God's Will, will be done in earth as it is in Heaven!

      I enjoyed your excellent exposition here about what the real problem is behind the apparent problems, which are real too, but merely symptoms. Not to say symptoms don't need attention--they do. But the underlying disease does need to have light thrown upon it and you have done so with gusto. Thank you. Well done.

      Hi Sweetie Pie, Thank you for coming over. I am grateful. You are being true to yourself and stepping up sharing how you feel. I sincerely hope and pray you are right. Truly sweetie pie, I do understand where she comes from. She has much concern for the suffering, as do I. We all suffer some longer and/or harder then others. Life is like this. As you said 'Eb and flow' Do I blame Obama? No. There is an adversary. He is for real. Greed Lies Deciept.

      Is Obama helping to fix us up? I wonder. This hub was written 4 months ago and much has gone on. Big expensive stuff. I am curious? Is he keeping it to Senate and Congress? Attention is focused on Health Reform, then another expensive issue comes up. None have changed. The only thing is figuring out where to tax. Congress and Senate are throwing rocks all over and at each other. The Presdent seems to be hanging around the other side of the world more then his turf. Why is that?

      He is the President, McCain is NOT, so no matter who got Bushes mess, is Obamae adding to it? I know nothing of politics except it keeps everyone running around in a circle. The citizens are screaming help. If he is working on something else where? That is what I see out of my window. There is no change.

      The GOOD news is The King of Kings will take care of all 'His' children. Christ is my leader and boss. I FOLLOW 'him'. We have a Savior his name is Jesus. My prayer is all would know him. Blessings sweetie pie. Be in touch. Hugs.

      I have to be entirely honest, but I feel someone writing a letter like that has an agenda. Some did not want Obama elected, and from the moment he was they looked for reasons to discredit him. He is working hard to put this country on the right track after the mess Bush lead us into, but economies eb and flow, and we will eventually get back on track. I commend Obama, and he was the best choice for president. McCain would not have been a good president, but I would not have written a letter questioning him either. For some reason letters like those are just annoying, and do not tackle the problems. I just have to speak out on this.

As children of the almighty we will rise above in these 'worldly troubled times' Praise God I pray MANY get Jesus. I think at this time many will as they see their way is not working nor the Government. God is still the miracle working God. He is so good. Hope you are doing OK today. You are in my thoughts.

      Dear Friend, "I believed he was a 'God' sent for the USA His election gave hope to a fallen world." Please remember there is only one God. Our Father in Heaven. It is true President Obama sounded good when he was campaigning for President, but he has strayed from the path. He stands for many things that ARE not Christian beliefs and that IS the bottom line. He may be a "good man" trying to do "good things", BUT if these things are NOT in line with the WORD OF GOD, then they are wrong. He IS by his OWN MOUTH, for abortion, stem cell research, same sex marriage, gays in the military and NO Christianity in our schools. What else should we need to know to see who he really is? Yes, we are told to pray for our leaders, and I do pray for his salvation and guidance from the LORD. As a Christian it is our responsibility to know, see and spread the TRUTH. There are no lies here. I can not tell you all of what else he believes, I know for 100% about these and they are against the WORD OF GOD. If you are not for God you are against him.

      Hi jisblessed Right on. Thank you so much for your comment. I am honored you came over to read my hub. You have summed up it up in a nutshell. This was a risk for me to write. I learned much from you comment. I was trying to get the point without passing judgment. Your comment would make for a great closing statement. Writer in practice, that is me. May God Bless you richly for sharing the Good News in him. I am going over to read a couple of your hubs.

      Good writing. I was thinking on the word of God that says,"Apart from me, ye can do nothing." If the President and every citizen and all others don't get their beliefs and instructions from God, we're subject to failures. And we know there is a devil and his followers that only wants destruction of mankind. It's good vs evil and we're left with a choice, life or death. Our real future and destiny is not in man. God said heaven and earth shall pass away. We can't preserve it but we can preserve ourselves to go to a better place. what are we going to do about it's passing away and our passing away. That's message I hear from your article.

      The Lord is the strength of our lives. Stay strong in the Lord and in the power of His might! God Bless you

      Sorry all, but had to come in and say alittle more. The new administration in DC inherited these mega problems from the 8 to 16 years of previous regime that was doing a number on our country. I don't even care to mention any names! But as Jesus put it just before dying on the cross at Calvary,

      " Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do." Eloi, Eloi Sabachthini, something like that, Yaweh,Yaweh Why have thou forsaken thee?

      Think about it, the war restarted right after 9/11, the economy has benn spiralling downward for 10 or more years. Hatred of America by other countries has been going on for a really long time off and on, the computer age and NAFTA have taken all the jobs away. The big picture is the New World Order conspiracy working behind the scene. just how I see it, all speculation. Let him who have eyes to see and ears to hear, see and hear! Thanks again Skye2Day for posting this awesome piece. Peace be with you sister...

      50 Caliber, Greetings, Thank You for taking the time to read my hub. I pray our President comes to know Christ. I pray many will. Scripture says many hearts will be hardened. God wants no one to perish and sin is the'cause'for the mess the 'world' is in. I am so grateful because his 'kids' will rise above and prosper in times such as these. Our Joy is in the Lord. Not mankind. No Thing comes with us. We will all be made new. What a beautiful promise. I know it is wise to stay close to the 'word' as earthquekes, famine, illness grow in numbers.

      Praise the Lord. I am very grateful to have a new hub friend and a friend in Jesus. I will stop by for a read and very soon. Hugs + + +

      A good heartfelt hub, Thank you. You give many points of God's Grace. You are one I have run up on that admits to being a voter of Obama. I did not and I don't know your points of agreement with his policies or his agendas I do know that while we may differ in those opinions, we can agree that what matters here today as any other day is our Faith in Jesus Christ. In the end that is what matters as no man will accomplish any deed or agenda not allowed by God. If the deed seems to be hate or despair there is a reason for it. There is an end meaning to the message being sent. As with Judas Iscariot he was known ahead of time, he was born to fulfill prophesy. I see his job as a necessity to the deliverance of Christ to become raised as payment for the sins of all. I wonder, had Judas taken his freewill and dropped to his knees and prayed for his forgiveness instead of killing himself how it would have effected the scriptures. In the promises he would have been forgiven and he could have been an enduring tool of Christ and a beacon shining bright of the forgiveness promised to one and all. I see backsliding amongst the 12 and those who stuck it out and presented the testaments of the new Faith and Grace as apposed to the curse of the law will surely be blessed. It crosses my mind that these guys were slow learners, having to be reminded "do you still not know who I am" by Jesus in a time where they first hand witnessed many works of miracles. In present day we have the New Testament so how much stronger is one who lives by Faith with just mere teachings versus actual eye witness to the actual teachings and accounts.

      Thanks for a good morning read over coffee.

Everyday I look in my mirror and claim, 'Something very good is going to happen to me today, I am a child of an amazing Father' I then Thank God. Daddy's like to surprise their kids with goodies. I know you are going to be more then OK. You Bless and you get Blessed. You are a bundle of Blessings to me and to MANY. I can laugh at the enemy. I only write about what is going on because many do not know. the enemy is real. His doom is coming. The Holy Spirit led me to write the hub. I give God all THE GLORY. We as believers need to STAY cautious in the WORD because he is tricky.God does not want his children scared. Our Lord has us covered. We have our Godly clothes to put on each day. God has huge arms. ALLELUIA SISTER. We have a sword the 'name' above every name JESUS. When we stumble and we will because we are not perfect who comes to get his sheep? The Good Sheppard. He knows us so well, just keep loving him. I was in a space for a 'time' and I would get 'scared' Today I thank God I am not scared because I KNOW HE WILL NEVER LEAVE NOR FORSAKE US. WHAT A glorious day we get to meet our friends, we will be caught up out of here Tracy. (2 Thessalonians)

      Thank you for your inspiration. You are a light and shining star. Now do not forget that Tracy 711. Sending big hugs back I love ya sister. AMEN In Joy love and Peace + + +

      Hello sky my dear friend..once again you have written an amazing heart wrenching hub. It hurts me so to know that God is no longer accepted in so many places by so many people and I feel for them and at the same time I am so angry at them. I hope that they find their way before it's too late. I can't imagine what this world would be like if no on believed. Look how bad it is now and they want to make it worse. I do not speak of the evil one much for I don't like to give him any kind of publicity but unfortunately you are so right he lies,kills steals and mekes every day in the world harder to get through. But since I have found God the economy is where it is and sometimes I wonder how am I gonna make it this month and then I remember oh God he will carry me again and he always does. I give him everything not just the glory but my everything..Because he is everything everywhere all the time..I am just so greatful that he knows each and every one of us and what is in our heart and soul..My prayers go to the president I see he has aged in the short time he has been in office. I think he is a good man and I can't imagine trying to be good with all the evil that surrounds him. But we all live through that every day and I think if his heart and soul belong to God he will find ways to make some things better. But in the end as it is written so it shall be. God bless you love hugs and and abundance of blessings to you my dear friend..

      Good hub Skye2d. I believe that all politicians who can even qualify to be President of this once great nation at this point in time and choose to take on the challenge are either brilliant or insane. Do not know which of the two. Mr. Obama has been in Washa ton DC for a good while now and you can believe he and the others who are with him have an agenda to work on.More conspiracies! All these people serve mammon, not God Almighty. They will all stand in front of you and say I believe in God, but I believe in my country too. Acorn, the ACLU and the likes are stronger than ever and gaining ground all the time. Change is occurring, the question is will it be for the better and for the majority, the generations of Americans that have sweat blood, fought for liberty and actually died horrible deaths for thier brothers and sisters. Sometimes freedom can be a disastorous thing if not handled with virtue!

      I say one thing to all Americans out there. Thy will be done, not Uncle Sams but Gods. Bless America as she changes, grows and bless those whom are TRUE citizens of this great nation under GOD, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all whom dwell here! At least we still have a Constitution and freedom to speak. Some places on earth don't have these inalienable rights, never have known.

      We are all sinners. Evrey one. But thrugh the SAVING GRACE


      JESUS IS MY KING. MY LORD. MY SAVIOR. If not for Him, I do not know sometimes what I personally would have done, for it is true....Once your "house" (your heart and soul} are clean, you have been born again, understand the life you have been missing in a personal relationship with HIM Jesus-the son of perdition Lucifer, Satan, the unholy one who roams this world TO KILL STEAL AND DESTROY will attack you over and over again to see if he is able to pull you away.

      Our purpose on this earth is nothing but to follow the Ten Commandments of Our Lord. TO PRAISE AND THANK HIM FOR ALL HIS GOODNESS.....And to sleep at night with the loving arms of HIS PEACE wrapped around us.

      One word "EXCELLENT!!" You certainly are filled to the brim, and overflowing with the Holy Spirit and it shines through in this truly heartfelt Hub! Your words cry out from a place deep within your soul for our country, our leaders, our people, our world.....and it is the cry of an apostle of Christ. One who knows Her Lord, and one who seeks His wisdom and Truth in all things, especially the ways of the world. The book of Ephesians has always been one of my favorite books, and toughest books of the Bible to follow ((morally)), but as I was reading your post, this Scripture came to mind;

      "Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. Be not ye therefore partakers with them. For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of Light: for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth.)" Eph.5:6-9

      You are shining His Light through the Word. Amen!

That is why they can take bonuses by the millions and billions. The very fact that Mr Obama went so angry about it; impressed me.

      Thanks for a nice, heart felt hub, but president Obama said he would do certain things in Office, but it does take time and he can't do it alone,everyone has to vote on what ever he's trying to fix. It's sad but there's no way he can fix everything that all the other presidents messed up before him. He's not our Saviour, only the good Lord can fix the mess we're in. thanks for sharing. Godspeed. creativeone59
