Things seem to be rocking along pretty good in this country with only hints of problems on the horizon. But to the discerning with a biblical world view, these hints of problems speak volumes. Every day there is a new revelation of someone given power in our government that has radical Leftist views and wants to change life as we have known it in this country. I am convinced that they will eventually get their wish and it will not be pretty.
The latest news of a governmental Leftist we are learning about is President Barack Obama's first judicial nominee, Judge David Hamilton. Hamilton has served as a fundraiser for ACORN, and he also once gave the order to stop prayers at the Indiana State House in the name of Jesus, but later stated that praying in the name of Allah was okay. Hamilton thinks it is OK to worship the god of jihad but not the Prince of Peace. This is clearly the spirit of the Antichrist and I'm sure such revelations are just a tip of the iceberg.
We have to stop and ask ourselves why God is allowing people like Judge Hamilton to be empowered over us. This is the fruit of electing a president who is more interested in bringing the United States under the will of the world community of nations than furthering the liberties and opportunities that we have enjoyed for so long. After all, what should we expect from a president who spent 20 years under a pastor who neglected the good news of Christ to preach hatred of the United States for not giving Black Americans enough opportunities.
Ultimately, we are getting the government we deserve. When people turn away from God, there will be consequences. Romans 1:28 says, "and even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting" (NKJ). More and more people in this country are being given over to a debased mind. We can see the impact of this in the ideologues that are being installed in our government. This is a warning to us that if we don't start turning back to God as a nation, our ungodly governors will oppress us beyond what we ever thought possible in this country.
We know that governmental oppression is coming on a worldwide scale but that does not have to occur until after the Rapture of the Church. Up until that point, this country can be an exception. More than any other country in the world, the United States has the potential for turning back to the Christ. So it will behove us to get on board with what God is doing around us and help our associates wake up to the spiritual aspects of what is going on in this country and the world.
While it is true that professing followers of Christ will abandon their faith in droves prior to Christ's return, we don't need need to suffer the consequence of that because the pouring out of God's wrath "will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition" (2 Thessalonians 2:3, NKJ). It is comforting to remember that as we see those with debased minds being put in power over us.
