While we have either have watched or have known about the Presidential Debates between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, it is very apparent to me that God is putting up another signpost that says “America: Bridge Out” I wrote about the first one in August of 2009 and the second one in November 2009 concerning “Obamacare” – a term Mr. Obama (once again I can not call him President since he has not passed the vetting process set forth in Article II of our Constitution) has stated he has become fond of. You can read about the other “signposts” here and here.
We again I believe are seeing the third – and perhaps our final signpost of our nation. However, what exactly is a signpost? It is a place where a sign is erected so that when it is read, it gives you information to make a better decision on where you need to go. If you have listened to the debate – putting aside your political bias, you can tell that there is a stark contrast between Obama and Romney. If you have not you can listen to the debate below.
October 7, 2012 Pastors from around the country will participating in “Pulpit Freedom Day”. A day set aside that Pastors will preach on politics from their respective pulpits defying the unconstitutional “Johnson Amendment” set forth in the IRS tax code that prohibits Pastors from publicly endorsing a political candidate. While the IRS has no legal standing to enforcing this code , has never won a case concerning this statute, it has been their stance of a “Paper Tiger” that Pastors are most fearful. Then again, this time they have a reason to be fearful. With the installment of Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan (which I wrote about here), as Justices on the Supreme Court bench, Pastors for the first time may go to jail for their faith – or so it would seem. The reality of the situation is the due to lack of spiritual courage as well as their political fear, Pastors will now have to face the “giant” that could have been easily defeated when the giant was a little boy.
Those who read this blog consistently realize that the spiritual reality is bigger and more powerful than the political or natural realities. Elijah the Prophet said I Kings 18:21:
“And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the Lord be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word”.
Notice the people’s response – “And the people answered him not a word”. On November 6, 2012, the Christian in America will have two opinions placed before them. Will the obey the Word of the Lord and choose to preserve the rights and freedoms that we have, or will we go the way of Baal and continue to sacrificing our rights, our freedoms, our children and the ability to steward them all on his altar?
Sometimes God’s Words does come back.
