Sam Gipp sends out a regular newsletter from “Friend To Churches Ministries”. His December 2012 issue was titled, We LOST, Deal With It!. While all of it was interesting, one paragraph caught my eye. It is something that I had heard before and thought about, but his explanation was concise:
…Obama may well be God’s man! God called Nebuchadnessar, the King of Babylon, who dashed Jewish babies to death in the streets “my servant” (Jer. 25:9 and 43:10). He was God’s “anointed” instrument to carry out His judgement on a people who had become “worse than the heathen.” We are an arrogant, unrepentant people. Barak Obama may well be the man God has chosen to punish this nation. If he is, then there is no fighting against him.
Is Obama really sent by God to punish America for her arrogance, the slaughter of innocents, the acceptance and glorification of homosexuality, the slash-and-burn attacks on any public display of Christianity? I certainly don’t have the answer to that one, but from a Biblical view, I can see nothing that says he is not. God says of His chosen people, “And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee” (Genesis 12:3). America has not only turned her back on Israel and promoted her enemies, America has elected and re-elected a man who at the very least is highly sympathetic to Islam – the sworn enemy of the Hebrew People.
While it would clearly be a matter of conjecture, I see nothing to indicate that Obama is NOT sent to punish America and preside over her downfall. What does that mean to those of us who identify more closely with our Southern heritage than with what American society is today? Again, I have no real answer; however, a good start would be to make sure that our families are shielded from the wickedness that surrounds us and instill in them an appreciation for classical Southern culture.
