God Will Determine The Next U.S. President

The Bible teaches God is in control of all things.  He will urge some of us to vote one way and discourage others not to vote a certain way.  But God is selecting the direction He wants America to go.

We all know God’s ways are not our ways.  As we study the Bible we know God is continually teaching us what in the future will be best for us.  It seems like those who really love Him and He intends to really bless them, they must endure tremendous hardships before He rewards them.

God had allowed America to become very prosperous prior to 9/11/01.  America became very materialistic and believed that their prosperity was of their own making.  In the Old Testament when the nation of Israel became abundantly wealthy they turned from God.  The result would be God withdrawing His goodness and disaster would follow.

Those who have never studied the Bible will disagree with my following assessment.  I believe President Obama was selected as our current president for one of three reasons:

I believe the decisions he and his administration have made have caused much of the pain that so many have suffered financially.  God decided that it was time for Americans to get back to worshipping God and depending on Him rather than on the government.  I have counseled a number of families who have had extreme financial difficulties and some having lost their jobs and were unable to find another.  God believed it was time for some tough love for many Americans.

It is possible that God allowed President Obama to become president in order to show how easy it will be for the Antichrist to take over and form a one-world government.  Look at what we never knew about the president’s background.  We chose him not knowing positively where he was born.  We are not sure whether he is a Christian or a Muslim.  We have no financial record  of how he got his education or how well he did.  He had little experience as a leader or knowing how to work with bringing the two parties together.   He was chosen on hope and change and what we were hoping he would do.

According to the Bible, there will be a day when the world is in financial chaos and we will look for a world leader to solve our problems.  He will come from the United Nations or the president of the European Union. (My interpretation of Scripture.) He will convince most that he can save the world.  He will have supernatural powers and the world will accept him based on his ability to deceive the population.  He will be accepted with little background information similar to what happened in the election of President Obama.  He will be one of the most charismatic leaders of all time.

The third reason could be that we our getting close to the end times and God knew that it was time for the U.S. to take a different direction and relinquish its superpower status.  President Obama is doing exacting what he was supposed to do.  The Antichrist cannot take over with a powerful America standing in his way.  (Show me where America is mentioned in Revelation as saving the world.)

If I am correct in my assessment then this is what we might expect.  If President Obama is re-elected we are getting closer to the end time.  If Mr. Romney is elected, God was giving America some tough love.  So here is what we might expect in the next few days.  Things will happen that will cause many to become super excited in helping one or the other get elected.  Some will be on fire and will get out the vote.  Or something will happen that will discourage many from voting a certain way.  But God will select the one He wants to lead America and for the purpose He has in mind.

Whoever is elected, it is our responsibility as a Christian to support that person as God’s chosen president.  We do not have to agree with who they are or what they do.  Our responsibility is to spread God’s Word to the world and hope we can fulfill our commission to help people plan for their eternal destiny.

Psalms 103:19 – “The Lord has established his throne in heaven, and his kingdom rules over all.

Romans 8:28 – “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”

Ezekiel 14:13 & 14 – “Son of man, if a country sins against me by being unfaithful and I stretch out my hand against it to cut off its food supply and send famine upon it and kill its people and their animals, even if these three men—Noah, Daniel and Job—were in it, they could save only themselves by their righteousness, declares the Sovereign Lord.”
