America Cries, "Give Us a King!"
There is a story in II
Samuel 8 where we see Israel demanding a king. God was not sufficient
for them, so they asked for a "real king." They got an evil one
America has been in a similar mood. We want a "king" to solve our
many problems starting with the economy. So Israel said to Samuel,
"Now appoint a king to lead us such as all the other nations have"
(II Samuel 8:5). But all the other nations had pagan kings.
God lamented to Samuel and said, "Now listen to them; but warn
them solemnly and let them know what the king who will reign over them
Two years ago came a charismatic man named Barack Obama who was engulfed
in a cult-like atmosphere. Some actually called him "the
messiah." Shrines were built to him. A Web site said, "Obama is god."
There has been a messianic fervor, adoration and a worship-like
atmosphere surrounding him. At some rallies people fainted at
the sight of him. Young children recorded on YouTube sang songs to him
stating he would change the world.
The intrigue with this man is global. Newsweek
magazine had a headline recently titled, "The World Hopes
for its First President." Imagine, a world president!
Newsweek states, "In country after country, polls show a
record-high fascination with the outcome of the U.S. elections."
Newsweek basically said "The international audience really
cared less about John McCain, Sarah Palin, or Joe Biden. Somewhere along
the road to the White House, Obama became the world's candidate."
Even for those with proper eschatology this sounds alarming. But
on the positive side, a barometer as to how late the hour is has been
revealed. Newsweek continues, "Obama is a 21st
century man with whom the whole world can identify."
In Obama's speech in Berlin, Obama said that we are all
citizens of the world!
America longs for a king to take care of us. We
demanded change and change we will get! There are YouTube clips of
people jumping for joy that Obama will take care of them. As one says,
"Obama will pay my mortgage and buy my gas." The entitlement
mentality reigns and it is cross-cultural.
Socialism now is very appealing and being implemented in
America. The government is buying up many industries, banks, mortgages,
etc. and turning them over to a new Socialist president!
None of the candidates who ran in "Campaign 2008" can save us!
Thus, I believe He has allowed "strong delusion" to filter across the
nation and around the world. It says in Isaiah 66:4, "I will choose
their delusions." Thus, all has happened for a reason. God
removes kings and establishes kings for His own purposes. (Daniel 2:21)
Here's what we do know for sure. In spite of troubling and even perilous
times, the Bible tells us that Jesus [and YEHOVAH God Himself] will still return to the holy
city of Jerusalem to establish a perfect government: A Theocracy for
"For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the
government will be upon his shoulder. And his name will be called
the Wonder of the Counselor, the JUDGE of the Mighty Everlasting Father
-- the Prince of
Peace. Of the increase of His [YEHOVAH's] government and peace there will be
no end...."(Isaiah 9:6-7).
