n 2004, John Kerry (D) wanted to take the job of George W. Bush (jnr) (R) and occupy the White House. George W. Bush (jnr) was the incumbent occupier.
Kerry had all the hopes any presidential candidate could have.
Why? One external affairs policy of the incumbent, Bush ran against him. His attack of Iraq in response to Sep. 11 2001 boomeranged, with American soldiers being brought home in bags while many others were maimed. Americans were frustrated and distraught. Yet Bush had his job retained.
Several surveys conducted after the election indicated that citizens voted for moral values. What is meant by that?
John Kerry (D) had sympathy for the gay (homosexual; people of same sex who want to live in unholy, perverse and irritating matrimony). The incumbent, Bush would have nothing of it. Citizens backed the view of Bush and voted for him.
Eight years later (2012), Barack Obama (D) took the same path, which led to the failure of John Kerry in 2004 to clinch the White house.
I became worried why he would not learn from a very recent history; worried, because I want him to retain the occupancy of the White house for the second term.
But I quickly added in places where I had the opportunity to speak concerning the then forth coming election, that Obama being a very smart and intelligent fellow must have done his studies carefully and observed the direction where the pendulum of the thoughts of Americans, was swinging. I concluded that if he won the American votes, then the Biblical prophecies are coming into fulfillment faster than imagined.
He won, in spite of all the campaigns launched against his position on gay rights by the religious bodies.
Religious bodies are not permitted by law to anoint a particular candidate on the pulpit. Not this time. Preachers were asked to sensitize their congregations in favour of Mitt Romney who was against the gay rights so as to take the job from Obama. Sunday Nov.4 preceding the Tue. Nov. 6 election date was dedicated for this purpose.
Even the most revered preacher of this generation worldwide, Rev. Dr. Billy Graham went on air to anoint Mitt Romney. He stated categorically that he had already cast his vote for Romney.
This is a kind of allowed, righteous disobedience to authority, as Apostle Peter put it "We ought to obey God rather than men" (Acts 5:29).
However, in spite of the opposition by the Church, Obama won and He was sworn in for the second term yesterday Monday Jan. 21.
My observation is that within a spate of only 8 years, America has drifted from the position, which has always formed their voting opinion. This drift must be pondered over by anyone who is spiritually inclined and ask the question what is happening. Where would this permissiveness lead us?
Is it that we forgot or could not care to learn from history that God had once destroyed a whole city of Sodom and Gomorrah for their perverse sexual behavior?
Gay behavior is called 'sodomy' named after the city 'Sodom' which engaged itself in perverse sexual acts and for which reason, God wiped it out with fire.
This is history, which cannot be denied. Yet the present world wants to go the same way, which led to a destruction in the past.
Can't we as a nation prevent a serious calamity coming?
Let us visit the line of action taken by President George W. Bush (jnr) at a time. Most people are of the opinion that his attack on Iraq was unwarranted in response to the event of Sep.11. That singular action, changed the course of events in the Middle-East. Events in Middle East will determine the close of this age.
If Al Gore, had been the President instead of George W. Bush, most probably Al Gore would not have attacked Iraq. If we call the action of Bush in Iraq as a blunder, it is just another action leading to same one thing; end of the age.
The rapid speed with which America has drifted from upholding moral value signifies that events that will lead to the end of the world can come in rapid succession and by the time we say 'Jack Robinson' it will be over.
Anyone who has a prophetic ministry knows that America has a big role to play in events that will lead to the end of the age. Everyone, every nation will be doing its own things without any inclination that they are just fulfilling what had been written but those who understand prophecies will be watching and be taking note.
When all these are happening, especially when perverse bahaviour like same sex marriage has become acceptable, let the wise take cover with the words of our Lord Jesus in Matt.24
"The day is coming when you will see what Daniel the prophet spoke about-the sacrilegious object that causes desecration standing in the Holy Place." (Reader, pay attention!) 16 "Then those in Judea must flee to the hills. 17 A person out on the deck of a roof must not go down into the house to pack. 18 A person out in the field must not return even to get a coat. 19 How terrible it will be for pregnant women and for nursing mothers in those days. 20 And pray that your flight will not be in winter or on the Sabbath.
See what I wrote four years ago immediately Barack Obama was given the mandate to lead America.
