Calling indecision cowardice may seem a bit harsh, but in honestly assessing the state of the nation today, anyone worth his salt would have to concur that indecision in today’s social climate is an act of pure foolishness.
The price for such foolishness will not just be that the wrong candidate got into the White House; but this time, in 2012, the price will be the very future of this nation.
We have a president who has announced that same sex marriage seems perfectly normal to him. Here is a case of one man leading the most morally upright nation in world history, who tells the people of this nation that what God calls an abomination (Lev 18: 22) is perfectly normal and acceptable.
Indecision and silence about statements like this is, without doubt, both cowardice and sin. To allow such conclusions without serious resistance means we have become mere respecters of persons. (Acts 10: 34) To accept the moral perversion of same sex marriage is the single strongest sign that we have become reprobate and are rapidly declining.
Visions of a nation busily sweeping out the Bible and all her constitutional and founding principles along with every tradition that was ever respected is more like a nightmare, where just outside this house once revered by the world, we see a heaping mass of everything we once held dear, with a rainbow flag mounted on the top and fluttering in the breeze.
Shortly after Obama’s ridiculous announcement that his view of marriage had changed, we were offered NBC’s lineup of fall TV shows with their all new show “The New Normal.” It is a series about a gay married couple. This may be the “New Normal” for secular liberal minions of moral decline, but it is not America. It is a force of LGBT, of decline, of satanic intrusion itself. It is a marker and a warning that after this, there is only judgment.
Mr. Obama has the right to pronounce anything he likes regarding his own sense of morality, but the proclamation should never be adopted as the model for the entire country. There is another proclamation made by the prophet Isaiah that makes this abundantly clear:
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! (Is 5: 20)
My advice is also clear; if given a choice between a biblical prophet and a president on matters of God and morality – always choose the prophet. Look around and listen carefully to those who are supporting Barack Obama’s “re-election at any cost” campaign. All the energy, the rhetoric, and the effort is based on one thing and one person: Barack Obama.
Conversely, listen to the Romney-Ryan supporters and the conservative principles that are being voiced around them. You will hear a call to save America and restore her to excellence and exceptionalism along with a much needed economic recovery. The attention is focused on America, not simply the candidates.
Take a hint from America’s only Prophet President, Abraham Lincoln, who declared that our government was to be “Of the people, by the people, for the people.” This is not cotton candy nostalgia, but rather it is a rare bird (perhaps like our symbolic eagle that needs to be protected as an endangered species.)
Mr. Obama has never listened closely to what America is saying, from the blocked pipeline to the unwanted healthcare bill. He has ignored our right to have secure borders and scoffed at the idea of defending the Defense of Marriage Act.
We have had great presidents who have earned the title of ‘Father of the Country’; who could have foreseen that one president would qualify as a mean-spirited, aloof, un-supportive, and very first ‘stepfather’ of the nation?
This preacher of the gospel must muster every bit of understanding of the scriptures and all the grace God is willing to afford to me by his Holy Spirit to make these most serious admonishments.
If we choose to allow Mr. Obama any more time at the helm of this nation, it will cease to resemble anything it ever was, and may cease to exist altogether. It will probably be absorbed into worldwide governance, and every bit of our sovereignty will be dissolved. The only freedoms left will be the freedom to sin, but privacy, open discourse, freedom of speech, and the very freedoms our sons and daughters died to procure will be a thing of the past.
What makes a spokesperson, preacher, or prophet of the Lord special has nothing to do with any personal charisma or knowledge they possess. What makes the difference between them and all other voices, whether they are connected to religion, politics, or any known discipline, is the single element known as obedience. They will not say anything that was not directly received or that in any way conflicts with the revealed word of God. Rather than being stodgy, implacable, or bull- headed, they are sign posts, standard bearers, and appointed trumpets for the good of the people. I adjure anyone of the several thousands of people who read my materials across this nation to take heed. This is not an ordinary election period, but it is the most serious crossroads we will ever come to in modern times.
What is my message? Change course now, or the road will shortly dead-end in confusion and shame.
Jehoshaphat, one of Israel’s greatest leaders, said it this way, “Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the Lord your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.” (2 Chronicles 20: 20)
Don’t worry; I am not exclusive, but many far more familiar voices are now sounding the warnings. Those with whom I share this calling are becoming more unified and vociferous than ever before. Could it be that this is the time to listen carefully – while there is still time?
Check your clock, America!
