Obama Wins - What now??

Hebrews 10:30-31 For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

Many Christians are scratching their heads this morning wondering why or how God could allow Obama to be re-elected. I for one was hoping that Mitt Romney would be given the chance to turn America around, get people back to work and to slow down the progression of evil across the country. Some may be wondering what God has in store for America or if the US has already crossed the line and that God's judgment has already begun. Is the re-election of President Obama a clear picture of the moral state of the Christian chrurch in America? Do the majority of Christians not stand for the truth of the Bible any longer? The Bible clearly condemns homosexuality and abortion which are two areas in which President Obama opposes the Bible.
Is it possible that God is giving President Obama a second chance for very good reasons? As Christians we know that our heavenly Father is the God of second chances. We see this played out in the Bible in the story of Jonah, the disciple Peter and many others. When we have seriously messed up, many times God will give us another chance in order to repent and so avoid the judgment that otherwise would be our lot. So also it appears that God has given President Obama another chance to repent of his evil ways and to repent and undo the evil that he has put in place. If President Obama will do right in his second term, perhaps the country could still be spared. Perhaps Obama will come to see the evil of homosexual living and begin to work against gay marriage. Perhaps Obama will come to see that abortion is the murder of the innocent and in repentance he will have the chance to bring hope and protect the life of the innocent unborn. If President Obama continues on the path of promoting moral decay and decline across the country, it will be very painful to watch. Hold on to the Lord Jesus and trust Him with all that the future brings.
What to do? -  Choose to live for Christ in your own personal life regardless of what is popular in the country. And the other one thing that is very important is to pray, pray pray!!!
1 Timothy 2:1-3  I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;  For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.  For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;


  1. Hi!
    We have had similar thoughts.

    We pray for USA and President Obama & his family.
    Nothing is impossible to our God.

    Have a lovely and blessed weekend!

    1. @Varpunen - Hello, Thanks for the comments. I appreciate it very much.
      You are exactly right. Prayer for the President and others in authority is really needed.
      We're in for a huge snowstorm here this weekend. I hope everyone stays safe.
      God bless you, my friend
