Jesus answered: "Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, 'I am the Christ,' and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains.”
~ Matt 24:3-8 NIV

Certainly, all the upheaval, wars, and natural calamities which are happening all around us; we cannot deny that something big is happening. The recent “Frankenstorm” hurricane Sandy brought a huge wake-up call to many, not only those living in the East-cost states. We cannot blame it on Global warming as some politicians try to make us think.
“When you think everything is some else’s fault, you will suffer a lot.”
~ Dalai Lama
In times of crises people show their best and their worst behavior. We have seen this over and over through the many disasters like 9-11 and hurricane Katrina, the earthquake in Haiti, and the tsunami in Japan. Suddenly people ask, where has God been in all this?
By the natural laws, God can only interfere in our lives if we ask for it.
"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”
~ Matthew 7:7
Now is the time where we need to restore God-centered leadership back into this country. It is time we stop the blaming game and truly take responsibility for our action. Or as President Harry Truman proclaimed: “the Buck Stops Here.”
As one Christian pastor encourages us, it is our moral obligation to speak biblical truth. At the same time we have to remind ourselves that Christ saved people with love not only with words.
“When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice. But when a wicked man rules, the people groan.”
~ Proverbs 29:2
I read a beautiful account of an aide to Governor Romney who at one public appearance had the deep realization that HE WILL THE NEXT PRESIDENT. God has been preparing him for the last 60 something years to be the 45th president.
Have you ever wondered why some people rise to the top so quickly, without opposition, persecution or vilification? Four years ago the country elected a president who pretty much came from the community level of Chicago to be the leader of free world. He was even given, right away the Nobel Peace Prize. For what, I have no clue?! Usually, we are given prizes for accomplishments not for promises.
I have to say with all the work and sacrifice Rev. Sun Myung Moon, who just recently passed away at 93, did world-wide regarding world peace, only a few recognized his outstanding contribution. Was it because he was a God-loving man who like Jesus spoke the truth and proclaimed a vision of the “Kingdom of Heaven?”
Great leaders always went through a long period of tribulations and rejections first, thinking of Abraham Lincoln, Winston Churchill, and especially religious leaders like Jesus, Martin Luther and Rev. Moon.
I still don’t know what motivated the American people to vote for Barak Obama. He had some good promises, but now after four years, very few of them came true. On top of it he lied about the Libya attack and still blames it on a stupid video. He accomplished killing Bin Laden, but there are so many small bin landen’s still trained by Al Qaeda that it was foolish to think, that Al Qaeda is dead.
Throughout the presidential campaign the left has pictured Mr. Romney as a bad man and rich man who is ignorant of the average person’s problems. They have bombarded us with negative ads and false accusations, while President Obama has no real agenda, no new message and certainly not much to show for the past four years. The only thing coming to my mind is that people who are hurting want to hurt others. He has concealed his personal records, so we may never know what he experienced in his younger years. We just have no room here in America for a man who wants to revenge his father’s anger on the American people by allowing socialism and leftist ideas to infiltrate this country.
People who are bitter, revengeful and blame others for their own or others actions will never attract God’s Blessing.
During the 3 debates and other appearances the American people have gotten to know the real Mitt Romney who has a long record of service for this country and can even prove that his dad (George Romney) was a freedom fighter.
It is my sincere hope and prayer that this country will vote for the right person this coming Tuesday, November 6th and that Mr. Romney will win with a landslide.
