The Elections and Prophecy.
Posted by lamarzulli on November 3, 2008
Our Country is about to vote again for a new president. I think it may turn out to be the most important election of our lifetime. I look at this event, as I do everything, through the lens of Biblical prophecy. How will the changing political landscape correlate to prophecies, written thousands of years ago? Are we in a time, that the Bible speaks of, where we will see the fulfillment of prophecy regarding the nation of Israel. How will the next president deal with the ongoing tensions in the Middle East. As of this writing, Syria has now completely surrounded Lebanon with tanks and thousands of commando’s. What is Israel going to do?
News agencies last week ran stories, that the ‘earthquake’ in Iran, may in fact, have been secret underground testing, of a nuclear bomb.
Joe Biden, announced that the new president would be tested, much like J.F.K. was tested in the Cuban missile crises. I agree with him, the new president will be tested. With the global financial crises, still in what some experts are calling a free fall, whoever is elected, will have much to deal with.
Our country is split along moral and ethical lines. There are those who are traditionalist. They believe that abortion is murder, marriage is between a man and a woman, a welfare state, with cradle to grave entitlements is wrong, and that there is a God. Then, there are those who are what some – like Bill O’Reilly – label as, secular progressives. They believe in abortion on demand, gay marriage, cradle to grave entitlements and keep God out of the public dialogue, at all costs, or worse, that God is dead. This is the great divide. We are in a culture war and that war is getting nasty… period.
Obama supported partial birth abortion, a procedure that might be one of the most horrific procedures ever devised and carried out by doctors who take an oath, to preserve life not destroy it. The Nazi’s would have loved it. On just this one issue alone, I cannot give my support to anyone who would condone such a vile act. I’m aware of the arguments, that seek to justify it, but in my opinion, they fall of their own weight.
We, as a nation, either embrace the sanctity of life, or cheapen it with abortion. We’ve totaled over 40 million abortions, in our country and from my perspective, this is nothing short of a holocaust, of the unborn.
There are many who I beieve have lost their bearings and replaced what was, at one time considered good, with what is evil. Don’t believe me? Ask your grandmother, what she thinks of abortion.
Some of you who are reading this, will castigate me for taking a stand like this. You’re entitled to, that’s your right, as a citizen, in this wonderful country that we live in. I will, however, point out that the acceptance of partial birth abortion, by many in this country, has brought us to, what I would consider is the nadir, of our civilization.
If God is dead, and there are no absolutes, than there is nothing to worry about. If on the other hand, his handiwork surrounds us, as I think is illustrated by the picture above, how long will His patience last with a nation that condones and practices the slaughter of the innocents?
I will vote for the candidate whose world view is closest to mine. I will cast my one vote, to the man that I believe has a similar moral compass, as I do. With that being said, I will vote for John McCain, and even though his chances might be slim, he has my support…
