‘I Feel the Presence of The Lord’  

"I Feel The Presence of The Lord" is a personal collection of devotions intended to encourage the reader to seek and see the Lord in every aspect of their life.
The enemy of our souls would have us subscribe to the mentality of being endlessly busy, and therefore it being excusable to relegate God to a Sunday morning church service, if that. Thus, many in our churches today are powerless Christians and/or Christians in whom faith and fellowship with God is sorely wanting.
I Feel The Presence of The Lord is not just a book to be read as part of our daily devotions. It is a collection of thoughts and instructions to inspire the reader to meditate upon the Lord and His Word.

The Obama's Are Not Deity

February 11, 2012

The Obama’s are not deity, even though it is becoming apparent that many Christian people have forgotten that simple, indisputable fact.

And even though the Obama’s may act and behave with said exalted demeanor – I know something those professing Christ need to remember and it’s something that the Obama’s darn sure need to be put in mind of.

In the Old Testament Book of 1 Kings 16:1-4, God made a statement that we ought remember, and it’s something which the Obama’s might at least feign being aware. First, for the believers – in verses 2 and 3, God references himself in a way that leaves no question and no doubt who is in control…He is. He makes that emphatically clear as He punctuates that “He had exalted and He would take away.”

I point this out because, I am tired of hearing people (especially believers in Christ) telling me that that if Obama wins another term, he will destroy the country. The bottom line is we don’t know what will happen if Obama gets re-elected neither do we know what will happen if he doesn’t. What we should know is that Obama is not above God or God‘s plans.

I am emphatic when I say this – as much as I want him and his wife out of our building, I’m not quaking in fear nor am I losing sleep, if as I suspect, he is gets another term. I believe that God is charge and nothing, not even a bird falling from the sky does so without Him. I embrace Primitive Theology that dictates God is above all and over all – and said being the case I accept that He is in charge and that even when things appear to be spiraling downhill and out of control – pursuant to His eschatological plan, things are working their way in concert with same. I’m not being fatalistic as such, I am simply confident that nothing that happens will be out of God‘s control.

Did you read what I just said? I’ll repeat it, I said: “I’m not being fatalistic as such, I am simply confident that nothing that happens will be out of God‘s control.” If God protected Daniel in the lion’s den, the Hebrew children in the fiery furnace, David from Saul, and provided for His people through the treachery perpetrated against Joseph by his siblings – He can take care of things here. And if I were to be eaten by the lions so to speak, I know where I’m spending eternity.

I don’t fear Obama, I fear God, which bring me to my other point. Obama and his wife would do well to read the passages of scripture I referenced above. God said in verse 2: “Forasmuch as I exalted thee out of the dust, and made thee prince over my people” and in verse 3, “behold I will take away the posterity of Baasha,” and in verse 4, God said, “him that dieth of Baasha in the city shall the dogs eat…” (New Scofield Reference Bible, King James Version)

Specific to my point is this. The Obama’s are high and mighty now, but she could choke to death on a pea, and he could fall head first down the steps of Air Force One, suffer a massive stroke, or have a heart attack in the middle of a screed. And let me hasten to add this: I may engage in sardonic jocularity at their expense, and even though I make no pretense of holding them in the lowest of contempt, I’m in no way wishing them evil. However, I am saying, that while he is claiming it’s his Christian responsibility to rape, loot, plunder, and fundamentally transform the country into a communist state – he would do well to remember that he and his wife are not above God.

And from my vantage point, it’s better for them to keep that thought in mind, that it is necessary for me to quake and tremble about that which God has in His control, i.e., the future.

But, hey, what the heck, that’s just the way I see things.
