OBAMAnation - 11.5.08

Well, it seems as if this once-great country of ours is drifting ever more quickly towards socialism and who knows what else. But I checked it out this morning, and these verses are still in the Bible:

Daniel 4:17 This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men.

Romans 13:1-7 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake. For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God's ministers, attending continually upon this very thing. Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.

1 Timothy 2:1-2 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

1 Peter 2:13-17 Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme; Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well. For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God. Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king.

Christian, you are a citizen of an heavenly country (1 Peter 2:11) under the dominion of the blessed and only Potentate (1 Timothy 6:15). You are His ambassador in this world (2 Corinthians 5:20), and you have been given a very important mission. What happened last night -- sad as it may be -- changes none of that.

So stay true to God's word (even the portions above) and preach the gospel. Amen.


  1. Amen brother...very well put.
    We enjoyed our time at your March for Jesus last weekend. As always, the love and kindness shown to us was amazing. Can't wait to see you all again soon, Lord willing! Lynn Jones and family

  2. Exactly Right!! What a comfort the Word of God is, ALL the time...

  3. Amen, brother. God knows what needs to be done to accomplish his will. God has a plan and is sticking to it, even if some do not like the way things are turning out.
