Pray for Barack Obama

The scripture commands us to "pray for kings and all those in authority" in 1st Timothy. I confess I have had a hard time working up any enthusiasm for following that precept while Barack Obama was riding high in the President's office. Now comes reports that he is suffering from severe depression.

I believe the reports. Even I can get depressed when I understand where this nation is heading, and I won't be the one held responsible for it. Perhaps at one time he thought that soaring rhetoric would be enough. That illusion has been shattered. It is often so that people who live by lies suffer depression when reality hits them. I feel that he is to be pitied. He's going down, in a spectacular way, and there is nothing he can do about it. He can only hang around two more years in an increasingly dysfunctional administration while things unravel.

Even though he has done wicked things, and one might say he is getting his just and inevitable desserts it is still proper to regret this outcome for him. It may be necessary for those who do wrong to suffer, but the righteous should not celebrate their destruction overmuch. This may be the time that God uses to really get ahold of him and change him into the man God wants him to be.

I still don't believe he is really the President, but he is still a human being made in the image of God. As to the harm he has done, he has mostly been a figurehead for larger dark forces. For the first time since he took office, I believe I can follow the scriptural command with passion, and I invite you to join me.

"...and I won't be the one held responsible for it."

You sure about that?

good point. The Christians may well be made the scapegoats for the looting of the ruling elites.

Barack Obama will make a comeback after the mid term disaster.

The template for his comeback will come from the same script as the 1994 democrat debacle.

On April 19, 1995, the federal Murrah Building was bombed. A weak president Clinton had his reputation revived in the aftermath of this disaster.


Look for another similar domestic "terrorist" attack coming soon to vault him back up in stature.

The 1995 Murrah building was blown up from the inside. The news clips from the news of that day report bomb squads going into the building and defusing two bombs which did not detonate (two duds I guess). You can easily find these clips online. I urge you to look them up.

The fertilizer bomb was a big bomb as well but it provided a distraction for the real bomb on the inside (which occured some 8 seconds after the fertilizer bomb).

Because the people of this country are generally good, they cannot concieve of a government which will destroy its own citizens in order to herd the sheep in a particular direction (such as the so-called "war on terror").

We need to become wise to false flag terrorist attacks because this is a major weakness of the citizenry in general.

"Nero fiddled while Rome burned" it is said.

Hitler bombed his own government building, the Reichstag.

The Gulf of Tonkin event which brought America into the Vietnam war was a fabrication (addmitted in 2003).

Why do governments do such things? So they can herd the sheep where they want them to go.



Lastly,

I must admit that I have a hard time praying for evil leaders. Psalm 94:20 says "Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?"

Framing mischief by law is exactly the template Obama (as well as all puppets presidents such as Bush, Clinton, etc.) follow. If God doesn't have fellowship with the throne of iniquity then why should we?

Good points. Could also explain the recent overreaction to rumors of a (trumped up?) terror plot.

Poor 'Bambi. Maybe he's suffering from an enflamed sliver of a conscience.

"Earlier on Monday, German Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière said that despite a U.S. travel alert issued this weekend, German police and intelligence services have no "concrete evidence" that a terror attack is imminent."
