LETTER: Administration is a judgment on America

-A A +A

Mr. Obama was elected with the promise of “hope and change.”  I don’t know about the “hope” but he sure has dished up “change,” especially in the area of foreign policy. He has apparently shunned America’s traditional allies and embraced our enemies. It seems obvious that Mr. Obama favors the establishment of Moslem hegemony across the Middle-East. Evidently he believes that a much diminished U.S. influence there with a corresponding growing influence of a unified Ummah would bring about a proper balance of regional powers. Mr. Obama concurs with the broad Moslem consensus that the primary problem in the Middle East is the existence of the nation of Israel. His most pressing foreign policy initiative has been to establish a Palestinian state in the heart of the Land of Israel.
Sometimes I hear people speaking of God “moving in mysterious ways, his wonders to perform.” What God has done in the 20th and now the 21st centuries is no mystery. The most frequent prophetic promise recorded in the Bible is that God would bring, once again, the people of Israel to the land of Israel - the ingathering of the Jewish people.  Our generation has been a witness to this miracle. This is, without question, the greatest miracle of our age. Most Bible-believing Christians recognize this miracle.
Governments are under the influence of the principalities and powers spoken of by the Apostle Paul (Ephesians 6:12) what he called the “world forces of this darkness.” It is, therefore, not so surprising to see most governments across the globe line up in opposition to Israel. During the modern era, the lone exception to this has been the United States of America. The Obama administration represents a radical shift in this direction.  
Judgment has come to America. The Obama administration is the instrument of that judgment. Mr. Obama’s deliberate weakening of the U.S. is preparing us to join other nations, in particular, the Islamic nation in opposing Israel. Soon, all nations including the United States will join forces to come against Israel just as predicted by the ancient Hebrew prophets (Ezekiel 38-39, Zechariah 12:2-3, Joel 3:2). God’s will severely judge those nations that come against Israel.
If Christians ever believed to pray for the well-being of America, this is the time. Even though the present political leadership is anti-Israel (hence, anti-Christ), the vast majority of honest, peace-loving Americans are God-fearing and support Israel. We should pray for a radical change in leadership in the nation which reflects the heart and soul of grassroots America.
