God is still in control!
Jesus is Lord of America!
President Obama is not Lord over America, he simply fills the office of the President. The insanity we have seen in the Media and politics is not to be our basis of faith as Christians!
How I wish I could get a Hillary/Trump blocking app! So much rhetoric, so little Bible! Simply vote the platform, vote the Bible, and then leave the rest to God.
In Romans 13:1-5 Amplified Bible (AMP)
13 Let every person be loyally subject to the governing (civil) authorities. For there is no authority except from God [by His permission, His sanction], and those that exist do so by God’s appointment.
2 Therefore he who resists and sets himself up against the authorities resists what God has appointed and arranged [in divine order]. And those who resist will bring down judgment upon themselves [receiving the penalty due them].
3 For civil authorities are not a terror to [people of] good conduct, but to [those of] bad behavior. Would you have no dread of him who is in authority? Then do what is right and you will receive his approval and commendation.
4 For he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, [you should dread him and] be afraid, for he does not bear and wear the sword for nothing. He is God’s servant to execute His wrath (punishment, vengeance) on the wrongdoer.
5 Therefore one must be subject, not only to avoid God’s wrath and escape punishment, but also as a matter of principle and for the sake of conscience.
We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against devils, spiritual forces of wickedness, that truly seek to rule this great nation through deception, wickedness, and treachery…
Yet, they and the people that serve them, are liars, void of truth and power…
All power and authority still belong to Jesus, and we are COMMANDED to pray for those in authority:
1 Timothy 2 Amplified Bible (AMP)
2 First of all, then, I admonish and urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be offered on behalf of all men,
2 For kings and all who are in positions of authority or high responsibility, that [outwardly] we may pass a quiet and undisturbed life [and inwardly] a peaceable one in all godlinessand reverence and seriousness in every way.
3 For such [praying] is good and right, and [it is] pleasing and acceptable to God our Savior,
4 Who wishes all men to be saved and [increasingly] to perceive and recognize anddiscern and know precisely and correctly the [divine] Truth.
5 For there [is only] one God, and [only] one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus,
This morning as I did my reading in One Year Bible, I feel to pray this verse for President Obama, and EVERY OTHER LEADER IN AMERICA. If you have any responsibility in business, military, education or government, I am praying this for you!
Pr 25: 3 No one can comprehend the height of heaven, the depth of the earth,
or all that goes on in the king’s mind!
4 Remove the impurities from silver,
and the sterling will be ready for the silversmith.
5 Remove the wicked from the king’s court,
and his reign will be made secure by justice.
I am praying that God remove you from ungodly, wicked counselors. People who would influence you towards evil!
Some have said: America is too far gone, our leaders are too corrupt.
While they are in place, I still believe:
The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, as arethe watercourses; He turns it whichever way He wills
When we pray, and only when, God turns leaders hearts to do right. People are honorable, and America is full of men and women of great honor – people who care about keeping their word, doing honestly, caring for those less fortunate, helping the widow, the orphan, strong at work and at home, to love, overcome evil with good, and strengthen and help our neighbors.
Yes, leaders have compromised. Yes, there are a people doing whatever they feel like doing, but boys become men, and girls become women of excellence, when God touches their heart, and they see others of us setting an example of courage under fire, being honest, trustworthy, loving, forgiving, and honorable, gently calling those we love to honor, to be all they can be, to believe in God, themselves, and this great country.
When we make these courageous decisions, we find that God Himself promotes us, and we become one of those godly counselors, bringing the Word of God to leaders who are in the valley of decision, looking for direction to impossible problems…
He who loves purity and the pure in heart and who is gracious in speech—because of the grace of his lips will he have the king for his friend.
God, Creator of heaven and earth, is the only one to make the impossible, possible…
Lift up your eyes warrior, our best days are still ahead…
‘Father, I pray for every leader in America. Give us strength, courage, boldness to leave compromising people and situations, to live fully for you Jesus, with no shrinking back. Bring godly, pure counselors and friends into our lives, who will not back down from honesty, truth, and the love of God. I pray for this government, that You would turn us away from abortion, same sex marriage, Islam, and those that oppose Israel. Deliver us from treachery, lies, and compromise, and by Your great power, love, and mercy, forgive us and raise us up again, to be the beacon of light, love, and freedom, with liberty and justice for all…Amen’
