National Anthem - The Star Spangled Banner   
Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

President Obama holds the highest office of any world leader. The entire world looks to the USA for guidance and direction.

Proverbs 14:34 - Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.

I am a Canadian living in Canada. It is troubling to see how much the USA is changing under President Obama. Also troubling to watch are the disasters that are bombarding the country - storms, heat, fires and financial woes to name a few. I believe God is warning all of us, no matter what country we live in, to turn to Him in repentance and faith as the days are getting ever closer to the return of the Lord Jesus.

Though I am a Canadian, I follow US politics, news, and a few blogs by some American preachers who have special insights into the world today in relation to Bible prophecy being fulfilled these very day. We are witnessing Bible prophecy come to pass before our eyes.  I find the writings of Joel Rosenberg and John McTernan worth reading. Below you will find a few paragraphs from both of their blogs and a link to each of their blogs.

First from John McTernan's Defend and Proclaim the Faith blog - Here is what John McTernan writes on July 2, 2012 -   http://www.defendproclaimthefaith.org/blog/

The effects of the massive storm that now is being called an inland hurricane is still being felt. I can never really remember a storm like this. This is the type of disasters that I have been warning about that are on the way to America. They will hit with a greater frequency and intensity. The destruction will match the exact level of rebellion against the LORD. The destruction will continue until America is broken. The LORD is holy and He cannot allow America to continue in this rebellion.
Once again I want to bring to your attention that the fate of America is in the hands of the church. Without repentance and crying out to the Lord for an outpouring of His Holy Spirit, America is going to be destroyed, God has sent all the warning signs of the impending doom, but the church still sleeps on. Please come to my Friday night blog talk church service, as during the service we do cry out to the LORD for mercy and an out pouring of His Spirit.
People have been contacting me about what supplies to store. I tend not to give details because everyone is in a different situation. You need a food supply, but store more than you need so you can help others. You need a water filter system so that if there is no water, you can always purify some. I recommend a small generator with some stored gas. I also highly recommend a weapon for self defense.
I am also requesting that any pastors who might be reading this to warn your church of what is coming and use the church to help with supplies. There are many people who cannot afford supplies and are helpless. The churches are to now move in the fear of God just like Noah did when he built the ark for safety. The Lord warned him of what was coming and Noah moved by fear took action. There are rnow millions without power from Indiana to Washington, DC. If the heat continues, this could get very serious for those without water and supplies.

Next from Joel Rosenberg's blog - http://flashtrafficblog.wordpress.com/
I encourage you to read the entire post on his blog.

July 2, 2012 Joel Rosenberg writes: Is America facing a ‘Jonah’ moment, or a ‘Nahum’ moment?”
Sure enough, the Lord heard the earnest prayers of the people — and their king — as they repented, and He relented. “When God saw their deeds, that they turned from their wicked way, then God relented concerning the calamity which He had declared He would bring upon them. And He did not do it.” The promised judgment did not come. The people and their city were spared from God’s wrath. What an extraordinary moment. The pagan people heard the word of the Lord and it burned in their hearts. They believed God’s word, pleaded for mercy, and the Lord gave them mercy, even though He had never indicated that He would do so.
But this was not the only time the word of the Lord came to the people of Ninevah.
About 100 years or so later, the next generation of Ninevites had abandoned the Lord and fallen back into tremendous evil, violence, bloodshed, lies, sorcery and other wickedness. In the Old Testament book of Nahum, we read that the Lord again spoke to the people of Ninevah, this time through a different Hebrew prophet, this one named Nahum. Yet this time the people of Ninevah did not repent. They did not listen to God’s word. They did not plead for mercy. They did not turn from their wicked ways and start praying, fasting and begging God for mercy. And thus, mercy did not come. Instead, the judgment of God came upon the people, and in 612 B.C. the city of Ninevah was utterly destroyed.
Today we as Americans — especially those here in the capital, but all of us really — must confront this question: Is America in a “Jonah” moment, or a “Nahum” moment? That is, will we hear the word of the Lord that we have strayed far from the teachings of the Bible and allowed our land to become polluted with abortions and pornography and violence and wickedness of all kinds? Will we admit how far we are from God’s plan and purpose for our lives? Will we confess that our hearts are far from Jesus Christ and plead with the Lord for His mercy and grace and forgiveness? Will we fast and pray and earnestly seek God’s face, and implore Christ to give us a Third Great Awakening? Or will we ignore the word of the Lord and continue in our sins and watch our nation continue to decline, or even implode?  http://flashtrafficblog.wordpress.com/

I believe both of these authors are warning all of us regardless of which country we live in - The warings from the Lord are evident - warnings to repent and turn to God for forgiveness before it is too late and  the judgement of God falls on our countries.

May God Bless the USA as well as Canada to the north!
