Barak Obama has won the Presidency of the United States; as you all probably already know.
My dad gave us some encouragement this morning from Isaiah chapter three, which is the one that I had posted awhile back.
I must say that, when I heard that he had become President, I was scared, but this chapter gave me comfort. Please read it.
God will help us to get through this, but that doesn't mean that we won't be untouched by it;
trials WILL come, and soon, I'm afraid; but Jesus Christ is on His throne up in Heaven, and He has everything under control. I believe that He is about to purge the church from all of the false Christians, and He IS going to shake the world...we must be prepared, physically and spiritually.
It will be interesting to see what God is going to do next. Barak Obama is a judgment on this nation, hard times are ahead of us, but we must NOT fear! The world is full of fear, and the church is going right along with it. But we as true Christains by God's grace must not fear, for He will watch over his Chosen People, and keep them under the shadow of His wing.
I forget who this quote is by, but it went like this:
"God will be the first to set foot on the battlefield, and He will be the last to step off of it.
He will leave no man behind; He might not bring you home alive, but He WILL bring you Home!"
Like I said, I forget who that is by, but I like it. :)
I am openly a Reformed Presbyterian and believe in John Calvin's works, sometimes known as Calvinism; the Armenians came up with five view points of their belief, and Calvin countered that with the Five Points of Calvinism:
T. Total Depravity.
U. Unconditional Election.
L. Limited Atonement.
I. Irresistable Grace.
P. PERSEVERENCE OF THE SAINTS.
P. Is what we need to carry out now. We need to persevere.
"Say to the righteous that it will go well with them, for they will eat the fruit of their actions.
Woe to the wicked! It will go badly with him, for what he deserves will be done to him.
O My people! Their oppressors are children and women rule over them.
O My people! Those who guide you lead you astray and confuse the direction of your paths."
Isaiah chapter three v. 10-12.
God help us.
P.S. A good book to read about Providence is the Westminster Confession of Faith.
