Good Morning, Socialism…
“Now is the winter of our discontent
Made glorious summer by this son of York;
And all the clouds that low’r’d upon our house
In the deep bosom of the ocean buried.
–Shakespeare’s Richard the Third, Act 1.
I found the above quote to be very appropriate, as it seems to capture the media’s feelings regarding our most recent elections. Congratulations are in order for the young man from Illinois becoming the 44th President of the United States of America. Now that the gladhanding is over, nature behooves us to take a gander back at eight years of somewhat undeserved infamy, and look ahead to what may be coming next. That being said, I should also remark that this post is in no way intended to detract from anything Barack Obama has done, or even who he is.
Fascism isn’t dead, merely unpopular…
While I admire America for electing it’s first African American President… I must inquire as to what cost we payed to accomplish this task. Are we truly willing to sell another 50 million unborn to the fires of convenience and the altars of science, let alone our very souls, so that we can have a humanistic “feel good” moment of “overcoming racism”? Have we sold ourselves a bill of goods and saddled an inexperienced leader with the burden of one of the largest nations on earth? Are we really going to spend the next four, yea, eight years pulling our own teeth out because it is more popular in the International scene to be “nonconfrontational”? For the sake of “change”, are we seriously going to settle for political theory that was tried by Russia, China, Italy, and Germany, only to be seriously set back within a few years?
The answer for all of these questions remain to be seen in the coming days. Those of you who believe in Capitalism, Democratic Republics, and traditional morals, consider that we have a mere two months under our current President before the changing of the guard. While I may seem to be striking a downcast tome in this post, I promise I have a point.
A bloody mess does a body divided make…
As I’m reading the coverage from the over-ecstatic liberals in the media, I’m noticing several striking facts. Firstly, Obama’s people seem to be most hyped about the fact that they got a black man elected rather than what platform they voted for. Secondly, the Obama supporters that aren’t throwing parties to the advancement of racial equality are throwing parties to the fact that George Bush didn’t get elected… even if he wasn’t running. Thirdly, I’m noticing a deeply divided schism amongst those who believe in God. This third point is the one that attracts my attention the most.
For those of us here in Kansas City (and I’m sure for 90% of those that have taken the Life Pledge as well), we were voting for McCain and praying that God would end abortion in America through him. Comparatively, I’m reading a Yahoo news story that features several individuals thanking God for getting Obama elected. To tinge this further, all of those blaming thanking God for Obama getting elected, all of them seem to revolve around Obama’s race and left over wounds from the Civil Rights era. This is gravely disturbing to me. Admittedly, this is one issue that I cannot empathize with or even comprehend because (A) I wasn’t alive during the civil rights era, (B) I think racism and racial pride are highly stupid, and (C) forty years is a very long time to carry a burden of this type. That being said, I need to repent for praying that God would enforce my political agenda during this campagin rather than praying that God would fix our morals.
Barack Obama is NOT the disease… he is a symptom.
So where does this leave us now? If you are concerned about the morals of our nation, we need to pray all the more. Colorado and South Dakota both failed to pass their pro-life legistration on voter initiatives. California’s constitutional ammendment to ban gay marriage is still too close to call. Barack Obama has vowed to pass legislation that would remove all restrictions on abortions of any kind. God has strategically removed the obvious and political “brute-force” option, leaving us with only Him and His goodness to hope for. Politicians will not be the cure for America’s ills. Barack Obama is, unfortunately, a very accurate barometer (NPI) for the moral state of the nation. America is not going to hell in a handbasket because Obama was elected yesterday… America is going to hell in a handbasket because we do not have widespread revelation of the Knowledge of God.
To those in the church who may be offended, disheartened, or suddenly without direction, I tell you this: Now is the time to pray. As hard fought as this campaign was, we need to redouble our prayer efforts. Do not resist this outcome, for it is of God. Alleluia, the Lord God Omnipotent reigns… and His zeal for righteousness far surpasses our own.
To Barack Obama and his various supporters, I say this… Be wise, you kings of the earth and understand, you judges. Submit to the Son of Righteousness lest He be angry and you perish in the way. God’s zeal for righteousness and life far surpass anything anyone in the Pro-Life movement, anti-homosexuality movement, or conservative Christian group currently have.
This is the Beat Down, signing off of the Presidential Election. Good night, and good luck…
PS: I wanted to tack this on the end, because it is bringing me a touch of comfort right now… especially relevent since America has voted with its wallet.
Hag 2:6 “For thus says the LORD of hosts: ‘Once more (it is a little while) I will shake heaven and earth, the sea and dry land;
7 ‘and I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations, and I will fill this temple with glory,’ says the LORD of hosts.
8 ‘The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,’ says the LORD of hosts.
