Did God Exalt Obama to the Presidency?
American Thinker, by James Arlandson

Original Article

Posted By:safesword, 1/27/2013 10:26:50 AM

If you´re a believer who takes the Bible seriously, you have asked yourself this question many times. I have. It has baffled me. Maybe a quick look at the Bible -- specifically, the Torah -- can clarify matters. Let me say right off -- America does not replace ancient Israel. And we certainly should not bring back old rituals and regulations. But we can look for general principles, just as our founders did.

Comments:
something to ponder...for me,this is exactly what is happening

The presidency of Obama might also be America´s penance for 55 million aborted children.

God puts individuals into leadership. He uses them to accomplish His desires. King Nebuchadnezzar was used to discipline the Israelites for their unrepentant sins. King Cyrus was used to punish King Nebuchadnezzar for the evil that he did against the Israelites.

God has a purpose in mind, but we do not know what that is. He has a history of using bad leaders to rebuke a nation.

I am not a fan of taking biblical passages out of context to prove your point. Torah is much more involved than this, and the passages are very interrelated.

I checked one of the statements, and his deuteronomy quote was about the jubilee, which freed all slaves every fifty years. Had nothing to do with what he is writing about.

Attacks on Obama and his policies can stand on their own merits, or general philosphical, moral or religious principles. Cherry picking individual lines from the Torah is not the way to go.

I am hoping that God´s plan was to leave him there to suffer some disgrace. You can only mock God for so long, or worse, trot God´s name out whenever you need His help to promote falsehoods. Had Obama not been reelected, he would still have made $50,000 a speech and been invited to the best parties, simply for having been the first black president.

People like Obama think they are better than they really are every time they win something. An intelligent man would have not been so snotty and in-your-face after the election, but in his mind, a 1.5% victory means that 100% of the people should get in line with your views.

Like the author, I´ve felt that God is using oh dark won TO GET OUR ATTENTION. We have turned away from Him and in His way; we are being told we had best awaken and make amends to begin anew on the right pathway. His signs are seen ever day if only you open your eyes to see.

The book of Isaiah has a prophecy that states during the end times we shall be lead by a manchild and ruled by women. That fits perfectly with Obama, Pelosi, Feinstein, etc. Did God exalt Obama? Don´t know. But I do know that God has a history of using people and events to shape His will.

Chuzzles, you left out Valerie the Omnipotent, the power behind the throne. Many of the Biblical women had much more influence than was needed when the men were so weak willed. However, Valerie wears the pants in that house, and I for one truly despise the Halfrican for what he is as well as for what he does.

"Praise be to the name of God forever and ever. Wisdom and power are his. He changes times and seasons. He raises up kings and deposes them. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. He knows what lies in darkness and light dwells with him."
Book of Daniel.

God is in control. The Bible is very clear on that. We can´t understand his ways as they are higher than ours. That doesn´t make it easier just acknowledges who directs the hearts and minds of men.

Is Mr. Arlandson a mind reader?
I´ve had to ask myself that very thing for the last four years and, especially now, since Obama was re-elected. However, Arlandson´s description of the Mulatto Kenyan as an "unusually ineffective president" is a cleaned up version of my thoughts.

The problem is, most of the Biblical "bad" leaders lasted for more than four or eight years. My worry is that somehow BHO will find a way around the 22nd Amendment.

Intellectually, I know 2/3´s of the states would have to ratify a new Amendment repealing the 22nd Amendment and allowing for more than two terms. Also I don´t think the next 47 months is enough time to get an Amendment passed and ratified. But let´s all remember that Obama has trampled on the Constitution so much already that anything is possible with him.

I´m not sure I buy the argument that Obama is a punishment for abortion. Molech has been on the earth from the first infant sacrifice.
We have consequences and I believe those are being played out in different ways (abuse, helicopter parents, rise of behavior disorders and mental illness), but I don´t think this is about God´s judgment.
If that were true, then why were we spared so much carnage on 911? Why are there still miracles of life? Why are there still beautiful weddings being planned and lives being changed? Why does God continue to shower His love on us?
We live in the age of grace...that most beautiful and terrifying kind of love. It involves free will.

Obama was chosen by the people in 2008.
There were not enough to oppose him in 2012.
Free will is in play here...but God is not silent or on the sidelines. He is deeply involved.
During this time of suffering, I´ve seen people become incredibly strong and resourceful. There will be those who give up and those who dig and keep going. It will continue until we are ready to put our house back in order.
There will be a reckoning and there will be justice.
And in the meantime, God will be the one look to for help.

There is a God who knows my name and He sent a Son to take my blame.

I know Jesus is coming back, and his name isn´t Barack Obama.

Please stop with the punishment fetish. God does not do collective punishment. Think about it, which nations have truly violated God´s commandments in modern history: Germany/Japan and China. The German people suffered what, about three years? After all they had done by bringing Hitler to power, standing by while twelve million people were slaughtered on in an industrial killing machine, by 47-48 they were back to the Bier Gartens and general debauchery. We paid to defeat them and then we paid to rebuild them and all it cost the average German was about 36 months of discomfort. Look at China it has an official, enforced abortion program and it is rapidly ascending to the top spot in the world and nary a locust plague or flood to be found. Yes America has its faults but do you really think God is going to punish us all? Was it Sodom or Gomorrah which God would have spared if one righteous person could be found? Are you trying to tell me there isn´t a single righteous person in America. Do you expect to go to Hell for the sins of your neighbor?
That is not to say all is well, and it may be worse than a directed punishment. It may simply be a withdraw of support but I doubt even that. We are being taught to recognize evil.

You aren´t a sinner saved by grace, you are the righteousness of God. You are a new creature in Christ Jesus in spite of who you are not because of who you are but because of who Jesus is and what he did for you.

What A Bunch Of BS! God hasn´t intervened with mankind in over 20000 years; and before that we have only allegory mixed with some questionable history of God´s play with mankind since the time of creation. God merely watches and permits mankind´s shenanigans. IT´S FREE-WILL BABY THAT´S GONNA TAKE US OUT OF THIS MESS IN USA; IF EVER WE GET RIGHT WITH GOD AGAIN.

We get what we deserve in this life, and yes we have the freedom to choose hell, but it is not God´s will and that is why the Savior came. He said he is coming again. It is your choice so don´t blame God. It was our country´s choice to vote for Obama, I don´t think it was God´s choice, but he gave us freedom,remember?

Maybe, from moment to moment, this guy just … doesn’t realize what’s coming out of his mouth. Hard to believe he could forget saying on the Senate floor that all ObamaCare horror stories — all of them — are a GOP/Koch brothers fairy tale designed to besmirch the stellar reputation of the Affordable Care Act.

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

U.S. President Barack Obama and Pope Francis met Thursday for the first time at Vatican City, offering a chance for a reset of sorts between the administration and Catholic leadership following years of strained relations. The two world leaders greeted each other with a smile and a handshake, and posed for pictures before sitting down across a table from each other. The goal of the meeting: Focus on areas where two of the world´s most influential men agree and gently tread ground where they differ. The President and the Pontiff will, as the White House said in a statement, focus on "shared commitment

All 17 Democrats on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee have called on Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) to end the “partisan” investigation into the Benghazi attack “and begin focusing instead on conducting responsible oversight to implement constructive reforms.” The Dems, led by ranking member Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), charged that the probe “has been characterized by wild and unsubstantiated political accusations that turn out to be completely inaccurate.” They proceeded to outline those instances in the five-page letter. “Continuing this reckless pattern of launching wholly unfounded accusations on national television — and racking up more and more Pinocchios in the process —

When Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis a little more than a year ago, the first thing that struck those who knew him well was his unexpected, beatific smile. “In Argentina, he didn’t smile like that,” Sergio Rubin, the pope’s biographer, said this week at a conference sponsored by the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “That was the big surprise.” Since then, the pope has mostly kept on smiling — in homilies, in audiences, in meetings with the homeless and the poor. If you look at the pictures from Francis’ meeting with President Obama on Thursday, though, the smile is there only some of the time.

More than six million Americans have now signed up for private insurance under the Affordable Care Act, according to the White House, with just four days to go until the end of its first open enrollment period. While traveling in Italy on Thursday, President Obama shared the news in a conference call with thousands of health-care navigators and volunteers helping enroll people on state and federal marketplaces. As the volume of consumers seeking health plans has surged -- there were over 1.5 million visits to HealthCare.gov Wednesday and more than 430,000 calls to the marketplaces´ call centers -- Obama urged those on

Their target is the GOP, but they are not angry liberals bent on destroying it. They are reform-minded Republican leaders intent on strengthening it. These Republicans are applying conservative principles to 21st-century challenges, focused on middle-class concerns like lowering costs and improving access to college, modernizing health care and reforming the tax code. They aim to broaden prosperity´s reach through markets and merit, not government and corporate cronyism. They´re also concentrating on helping the poor by changing Washington´s dizzying assortment of antipoverty programs to emphasize work and make the safety net more effective and sustainable.

One is a world leader who has been praised for his humility and outlook on the world. The other is an American president, once the international superstar of the political stage. So it is no surprise that President Barack Obama has travelled to the Vatican in Rome possibly to get some tips from the popular Pope Francis who now even has own weekly glossy magazine dedicated to him. As he sat down with the Pontiff at the Vatican this morning, Obama called himself a ´great admirer´ of the pope. Their historic first meeting comes as Obama´s administration and the church

London - England’s public health agency says two people have caught tuberculosis from a pet cat, the first time the bacterial disease has been documented to spread from cat to human. In a report published Thursday, Public Health England said it concluded TB samples taken from the cat and from two people in contact with the animal were “indistinguishable” and that the cat was considered to be “the likely source of infection.” Between December 2012 and last April, veterinarians identified TB in nine pet cats in Berkshire and Hampshire, west of London. Public Health England said the two people who caught TB were recovering and said the risk

Joe Newby at The Washington Examiner has found a real doozy of a “comedian.” Her name is Laura Levites – with obviously no connection to the priests of the Old Testament. (She´s an atheist with a fondness for Ricky Gervais.) "I would personally like to castrate every Male Conservative Christian so that they have NO reproductive rights," she wrote on Twitter, using the hashtag "#HobbyLobby." She certainly knows how to draw attention to herself. Newby said that’s not all. She also expressed her hatred of Christians in a tweet calling conservative Christians "******bags," claiming they are "really trying" her patience.
