Shame on Me – 11/22/2012

“The wise shall inherit glory: but shame shall be the promotion of fools.” Proverbs 3:35. Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. America is a nation wallowing in shame. The nation that elected Barack Obama the first time was a nation enamored by the color of a man’s skin and his ability to articulate what a dummied down American populous could understand. The same nation, after witnessing the horrible direction in which he took this country, placed him in office again. Shame certainly is the promotion of fools.
For the last four years in blogs all around the web all I read was we’ve had a belly full of this very inept individual, we must vote him out of office. The cry went out “Anyone but Obama.” Yet there he sits in the Oval Office ready to deliver another four years of the same, or worse, shenanigans to an unsuspecting electorate. Billions of dollars were spent on the two opposing (Democrat/Republican) campaigns over the last year or so yet no change was made in leadership. Is it just me or does something seem amiss?
“And the LORD said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them.” 1 Samuel 8:7. I know this verse speaks of Israel and the fact that they did not want God, but a man, to be their King. The citizenry in the US has made the same decision as Israel. By and large, this nation turned its back on God many years ago. Through their promotion of shamelessness worldwide, Americans have made it plain to God He has no place in their hearts, nor in their land.
America wants a man to lord over her. So as a nation we’ve replaced our Creator God with an idol, a man who considers himself above the law, the constitution, and mankind in general. The people in the United States of America are looking to a mere man to fix the problems that face this nation. That “fixing” isn’t going to happen the way the masses envision. Barack Obama has an agenda, and it doesn’t include America remaining a superpower, or a benevolent nation to the rest of the world for that matter. And keep your eye on Israel. Obama will do everything he can to force Israel to capitulate to her enemies.
If we take the word of God seriously and diligently seek the truth from within the pages of our Bibles we will quickly come to some conclusive yet disturbing realities regarding what and who make up earthly governments. But I must warn you, when you come upon these verses and begin to understand that they are speaking of the supernatural, fear can become overwhelming. But understanding that fear is of the enemy and not of God gives the believer a peace that only God can be responsible for. “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7.
