The re-election of Barack Obama, though not unexpected, still hit like a body blow. Both parties basically spent 6 billion dollars to get what we already had--a dysfunctional government that can't seem to get the job done. Most people get fired when they fail at their job. How is it we rehired the whole sorry bunch?
Did you know the President has a 'doomsday plane'? Yup. A jumbo jet worth an estimated $223 million, capable of withstanding a nuclear blast while staying airborne for days without refueling. Wow. And get this--the Federal Government has a top-secret underground complex...just in case. No kidding. It's located 64 miles from Washington D.C. in Virginia and it's buried 300 feet underground. We're not talkin' little bomb shelter, people. This place is humongous! It's 20 stories high and features water reservoirs, a sewage treatment plant, hospital, crematorium, and a TV studio (presumably to allow the Commander-in-Chief to address the nation). Yikes!
Our government seems prepared for just about everything except the stuff most likely to happen.Greg Hunter from USA Watchdog believes it will be an economic crisis. "The U.S. faces a financial storm of biblical proportions; I am talking Noah's Ark tsunami. The real fiscal cliff isn't what is coming at the end of the year. It is the debasement of the U.S. dollar at the hands of the Federal Reserve that is printing $85 billion every month in 'open-ended' currency creation"(QE3). You'd think the government would get ready for this, but have they? Nope.
According to Debka file's military and intelligence sources, a grimmer scenario is being discussed by Israeli leaders behind closed doors: "They fear that the second Obama term will usher in a nuclear-armed Shiite Iran which will quickly reach out to the Sunni Muslim Brothers, starting with Egypt, for a joint bid to terminate the life of the Jewish state."
H-m-m-m. Think they'd see that one coming--but again--no cigar.
Let's face it gang, the United States is staring down the barrel of a multitude of existential threats. From the global debt bomb to WW III. And while it would certainly be a bummer to find out we'd rehired a crew that wasn't up to the job, there is something much, much worse...and that, my friends, is to discover we have called God's judgment down on our own heads.
Ridiculous? Consider this: Starting in the early 60's, our nation began to openly reject God.
- We kicked prayer out of public schools
- Legalized abortions
- Celebrated alternative lifestyles
- Legitimized illegitimate behavior
- Made God politically-incorrect
Read 1 Samuel 8. The people did not want to follow God anymore. Instead, they demanded a king like all the other nations, in spite of the fact that God had given the people His word, the prophets and the judges to guide them. In the end, God allowed the Israelites to have what they wanted. He gave them a king like those of the other nations. The point is, God will give us leaders we want because the leaders we choose reflect the will (and the spiritual condition) of the people. Not convinced?
- Barack Obama is not only pro-choice, he is pro-partial birth abortion.
- He not only approves of homosexuality, he believes it's okay for them to enter into God's covenant of Holy matrimony.
- He not only has distanced the U.S. from our God-given responsibility to protect Israel, he has actively put them in danger.
These 3 points are God's litmus test. Barack Obama fails on each point and yet we not only elected him, we re-elected him. That means we have failed the test (as the church). Because, the fact of the matter is, statistically, there are more than enough Christians in this country to elect any one we want. 1 Peter 4:17 says, "For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?" The footnote in our Bible reads" "Judgment does not always imply condemnation in Scripture. When used in relation to Christians, it consistently refers to the evaluation of a believer's works for the purpose of reward." We don't think there will be many rewards given out for this. Especially when you consider this stunning fact: 6.4 million self-described evangelical Christians voted to re-elect President Obama. Roughly 15.5 million failed to vote at all. Obama won by only about 3 million votes (source: Washington Post).
Our government is ready for doomsday. Are we?
"If My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then I will hear them from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land" (2 Chronicles 7:17).
"And the Lord said to Samuel, 'Heed the voice of the people in all that they say to you; for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me...'"(1 Samuel 8:7).
