Pray, and Vote


Excerpt from Liveprayer.com's Daily Devotional---


Senator Obama or Senator McCain? For those who have been part of the
Liveprayer family, you know that I will never publicly endorse anyone for
elected office. Also, I have never told anyone who to or not to vote for.
My concern is not about politics, but about the spiritual issues that face
our nation, with many of those issues transcending into the political arena.
As I shared with you last week, we are called to be Godly citizens.
Christians have every right and responsibility to be involved in the
political system.

The Bible is full of examples of how God can use His children in the
political world. Men like Joseph, Daniel, David, and others were men of God
who had careers in politics. In this nation, one of the ways we make our
voice heard is through our vote. Christians should vote and vote for men
and women who will best uphold Biblical principles. If those in elected
office governed according to God's Word, this nation would be enjoying the
blessings of God instead of dealing with the consequences of our rebellion
to God and His Truth!

Last year, I told you that whoever was going to be our next President would
be no friend of God. That is clearly going to be the case. I pray that if
Christians learned one thing from the two terms of President Bush, it is
that no man who ascends to the office of President is going to put God's
agenda ahead of politics. Currently in our nation, we have a dominant
two-party system. To become the nominee of one of the two dominant parties,
to have the support of key power brokers the public never sees, to have the
ability to raise the hundreds of millions of dollars necessary, to have the
infrastructure required in all 50 states, forces the nominee to sell their
soul to the institution of politics.

Senator John McCain is going to be no friend of God. Senator McCain claims
to be a Christian but has never spoken of that moment when he gave his
heart and life to the Lord by faith. Actually, in the past, he has been
very critical of many Christian leaders, and has only embraced the Christian
community recently since he has no chance of winning without the Christian
vote. If elected, he is going to do nothing to take the Federal Government
out of the business of killing babies. He won't pursue a marriage amendment
to the U.S. Constitution. He has major support from the gambling lobby so
there is no way he will even try to curtail the proliferation of gambling in
this country. There is NOTHING to indicate Senator McCain will do anyhting
to deal with the pressing spiritual issues that face this nation.

Senator Barack Hussein Obama is going to be no friend of God. He claims to
be a Christian, a claim I dispute and have carefully detailed in a video on
the Liveprayer.com homepage that has been viewed by millions. I was the
first Christian leader to go into the secular media over a year ago and
question his claim to being a Christian. The fact is, Senator Obama was
nothing but a political hack for the Daley machine in Chicago, the same time
I started my ministry in that great city. He was a "community organizer" on
the south side, better known in Chicago as a political street thug, at the
same time I was on the south side preaching in many of the same black
churches he was involved with. I first mentioned Barack Hussein Obama in
2006 in conjunction with his church for 20 yrs., the liberal Trinity United
Church of Christ, and his pastor, the racist Dr. Jeremiah Wright who has
preached his perverted black liberation theology for 30 yrs.

Senator Obama has NEVER spoke of his salvation experience, only of his
church membership. The fact is, the only reason he even joined Trinity was
for political expediency. It was the church upwardly mobile blacks in
Chicago went to church. Much has been made of his alliances with
unrepentant domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, Rev. Wright, jailed slumlord Tony
Resko, and other far-left radicals in Chicago. What most have missed is
that Senator Obama embraces this far-left radical ideology. This is
important to understand from a faith perspective, since you can't believe
this type of radical political ideology and the Christian faith. The two
are mutually exclusive. As I have made the case, his claim of faith has
been for political expedience, and not a personal relationship with the
Lord.

How else can a man who claims to love Jesus, vote 100% of the time to
support the legalized slaughter of innocent babies? He makes the ridiculous
assertion that he wants to reduce the number of abortions, yet votes 100% of
the time to support this practice of legalized infanticide, even late-term
abortions where fully developed babies who are ready to be delivered have
their skulls crushed and lifeless bodies extracted from their mothers womb.
Senator Obama is also a hero in the homosexual community, fully supporting
their radical agenda his entire political career. Let me say this as clear
and concise as I possibly can. No person who claims to love the Lord could
EVER vote for a man who supports the legalized slaughter of babies and the
homosexual agenda. Let me go even further, if you have a pastor that
endorses a baby killer and an advocate of the homosexual agenda, you need to
run from that church.

It has made me sick to see high-profile Christians like TD Jakes, Paula
White, Rev. Kirbyjohn Caldwell who pastors the largest United Methodist
Church in the nation in Houston, Texas, and others, supporting Senator
Obama. It has made me sick to go on one talk show after another and
interact with callers who claim to be Christians, yet are supporting a man
for President who sees nothing wrong with killing innocent babies and
supporting the radical homosexual agenda. What a spiritually bankrupt
nation we live in when even those who claim to know Jesus, pastors who are
supposed to lead the flock, see nothing wrong with supporting a baby killer
and advocate of the agenda of sexual deviants! God help us!!!

During this campaign, Senator Obama has aggressively marketed his "Christian
faith" and gone after evangelical voters. He has sought to ignore his
support of killing babies and the gay agenda, and focus on social issues
like world hunger and AIDS in Africa, the mantra of the Christian left,
those who claim to be Christians yet compromise the Truth of the Bible.
Focusing on his social agenda, Senator Obama has tapped into Catholics and
Protestants, especially younger church goers who sadly attend churches
that have so watered down Biblical Truth, that they call themselves
Christians, yet deny the Truth of God's Word.

Of course, Senator Obama has also had the staunch support of those who hate
Christians and the Christian faith. The secular media, which loathes
Christians, has lost all journalistic integrity and is openly rooting for
and supporting Senator Obama's campaign. Even though he claims to be a
Christian, the media is not offended by Senator Obama's brand of
Christianity because he promotes this universalistic lie from hell that
everyone will go to Heaven (making faith in Jesus is meaningless), and
supports their liberal agenda like the legal killing babies and special
rights to homosexuals.

He has no real experience, no real accomplishments, a radical political
ideology, and major portions of his life are missing, yet the media doesn't
care because they have a Godless agenda that they see being fulfilled
through his winning the White House. The Judeo-Christian View (
www.thejudeo-christanview.com ) is an exciting new online publication that
deals with many details you will never hear about in the mainstream media
regarding Senator Obama and his radical socialist political ideology. These
are views that make him clearly an enemy of God.


Let me share with you what the Holy Spirit has shown me. As hard as it is
to understand, it is God who allows men to rise to power. God allowed the
Caesars to rise to power during the time of Jesus and the first church. God
allowed Stalin to rise to power in Russia. God allowed Hitler to rise to
power in Germany. We will never fully understand why or His total purpose,
but those are the times we must trust God. If God allows Barack Hussein
Obama to rise to the Presidency, I see it as God taking His hand off of this
nation.
He will give us over to that "reprobate mind" spoken of in Romans
1:28, "And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God
gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not
convenient."

We are already seeing the rumblings of God's judgment on this nation through
the economy. All of the economic and political systems in the world can't solve the problems since
the problems are not of this world, they are spiritual. This nation and
world lives in rebellion to God and His Truth and the only hope, the only
answer, is to repent and turn back to God!
