Well, in the N.T. an older Apostle Paul told his younger son in the faith that in the last times things would go from bad to worse (2 Timothy 3:12-13) 12In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, 13while evil men and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.
Before our very eyes we are seeing our leader and our country go from bad to worse. Today, May 6 President Obama said that there will NOT be a White House observance for the National Day of Prayer to pray for our nation! What a shame!!!!!!!!! The President CLAIMS to be a Christian and yet cancels the White House observance that recognizes prayer for our nation????
PSALM 9:17 The wicked return to the grave, and all the nations that forget God.
Onenewsnow.com said, "White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs says President Barack Obama will pray privately as he does every day, but his only public acknowledgement will be to issue a White House proclamation." On the news this morning they said the President will issue a document and fax it to the reporters. WOOOO HOOOO!
As if this is not enough.... on April 16, 2009, according to the Los Angeles Times Blog they reported, as did numerous other news media, "President Barak Obama's White House asked Georgetown University to cover all religious symbols at the scene of the President's economic speech at the Roman Catholic Institution Wednesday. And the prestigious Jesuit University agreed."
The Washington Times reported more specifically that the White House asked to cover up a monogram symbolizing Jesus name. "The gold "IHS" monogram inscribed on a pediment in the hall was covered over by a piece of black-painted plywood, and remained covered over the next day, CNSNews.com reported."
I am reminded of Matthew 10:33, "But whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my Father in heaven."
On the same day the White House said no official observance would happen for National Day of Prayer, Onenewsnow.com said, "On the same day as Gibbs' remarks, the District of Columbia Council gave final approval to legislation that recognizes same-sex "marriages" performed in states where they are legal. Congress has final say over the city's laws and will get 30 days to review the bill. If Congress takes no action, the bill would become law automatically."
God Help Our Country!!!
I thought the Editor of Onenewsnow.com had a great thought to close the article he said in the Editor's Note: President George W. Bush had held a formal White House event for the past eight years marking the National Day of Prayer. There were no official observances during the Bill Clinton administration. The Bush White House also, for the past several years, recognized the Islam observance of Ramadan with a White House dinner. It remains to be seen if the Obama White House will continue that tradition.
It would be interesting to see if he will continue the tradition of recognizing the Islamic observance of Ramadan with a White House dinner.....seeing how our President Obama didn't bow to the Queen of England, covered up the name of Jesus.... but gave a deep bow and bended knee to the King of Saudi Arabia.
Proverbs 11:14, "For lack of guidance a nation falls." As the leader goes, so goes the nation.
God Help Us!
Just a Thot,
