In a soundbite B. O. (Barack Obama) reacted to suggestions that he be the Vice Presidential candidate on the ticket with Hillary Clinton occupying the #1 slot -- you have heard of the "Dream Team" idea, have you not? B. O. emphatically stressed that he is the leader, blah, blah, (add as many blahs as you wish) in the delegate matter and voting numbers! Translated another way B. O. is stating, "I'm the MAN!"
If the human ego could be transformed into a mountain, B. O.'s would make Mt. Everest appear as a miniature mole hill by comparison! Here is a guy who came out of nowhere, having spent a bit of time in the Illinois legislature, managed to get elected as a senator to the U. S. Congress, and was a keynote speaker at the Democratic Convention 4 years ago! He is truly a meteor in the political sky over the republic of the United States. More about that at the end of this exercise which has for its purpose taking a good hard look at this one who wants more than anything else in the world to rule and reign in a place known as the Oval Office in Washington DC.
There is a very real possibility that B. O. could be the next president of the United States, starting on January 20, 2009. If that should become a reality or a nightmare of unprecedented proportions (take your pick on this), this person will lead us down the road to sure and certain disaster!
It's not simply an issue of age or experience, since very few persons have ever been able to handle power and wealth responsibly, but it is primarily a spiritual and moral issue! On the power thing, presidents have in the last few decades abused something called "Executive Orders" -- this is akin to being a dictator without being really identified as such. This is an area where our freedoms are slowly taken away just as a cancer eats away at the body until death comes! But it is usally done under the pretense of providing more "security" for our nation. What they fail to realize is that when we are at odds with our Creator by reason of mass rebellion and defiance, there is no security! When Almighty God gives indication that He is against a nation, then a mighty military machine is as effective in providing security as a mouse would be in defending itself when tossed into a room filled with 3 dozen hungry tomcats!
But B. O.'s most tragic blunder will be when he continues to give sanction to the ongoing slaughter of the innocents -- the rate of destruction of unborn innocent children continues to be about 100,000 per month in a republic which has prided itself throughout history on the fact that every person should have the "right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness!" We actually are demonstrating hypocrisy of the first magnitude if we believe that statement is still taken seriously by elected officials church leaders and the citizens at large!
B. O. has a rather bloody track record in the Illinois legislature, opposing all efforts which were made to somehow try to protect at least a few unborn children in the later stages of their mothers' pregnancy!
So when and if B. O. sits in the Oval Office in DC you can expect he will block any and all attempts to protect the unborn -- that is, until the Creator says the carnage has gone on long enough and be aware, that day will definitely come! If any of us are living at that moment, and if B. O. does hold that position (or someone else) it will be interesting to see what he (or she) says in a nationally televised speech.
You figure it out -- what does a president say as it finally dawns on most everyone when it is now too late, that we made the biggest mistake ever made in United States' history when 9 black-robed people said it is ok to destroy an unborn child at any time for whatever reason -- a child known, identified and for whom the Creator of this mighty universe had a high and holy purpose!
Even B. O. with all his rhetoric won't be able to get us off the hook on that one!
Have you checked the numbers lately -- no, then slip over to A Quick Look at the United States' Massacre Tally!
Have you spoken to anybody about this crisis? Have you been praying about it? Have you contacted any elected officials about it?
If B. O. is the "MAN" who moves in to the Oval Office on January 20, 2009 (or somebody else) then I will be sending letters to him just as I have been sending to Bush on a regular basis and as I sent to Clinton when he was there.
Oh yes, about that meteor mentioned earlier -- have you noticed? Each time you see one there is a brilliant flash for a moment and then it burns out -- all that is left is dust and ashes -- nothing of real substance!
Manasseh was twelve years old when he became king, and he reigned fifty-five years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Hephzibah. And he did evil in the sight of the LORD, according to the abominations of the nations whom the LORD had cast out before the children of Israel.... Also he made his son pass through the fire, practiced soothsaying, used witchcraft, and consulted spiritists and mediums. He did much evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke Him to anger.... But they paid no attention, and Manasseh seduced them to do more evil than the nations whom the LORD had destroyed before the children of Israel. And the LORD spoke by His servants the prophets, saying, "Because Manasseh king of Judah has done these abominations (he has acted more wickedly than all the Amorites who were before him, and has also made Judah sin with his idols), therefore thus says the LORD God of Israel: 'Behold, I am bringing such calamity upon Jerusalem and Judah, that whoever hears of it, both his ears will tingle...'" --- 2 Kings 21:1, 2, 6, 9-12
Oh yes, a PS on this -- I am a non-affiliated registered voter in Cambria County PA -- just in case you conclude that I must be a (insert name of party here) from the nature of remarks on the political mess in which our republic finds itself! At the present time neither major political party has anything of real substance that will bring the reformation, restoration and healing which the country needs!
