My friend Ben just wrote an article referring to Sunday’s Health Care “reform” vote. It is posted at ACHStudyGroups.com. Go read it, and then check out the seminars and online course that he offers.
Here is a sample:
One of the things that make tomorrow (Sunday March 21st, 2010) one of those â€œmomentsâ€ will never show in the media. I believe there is more focused prayer being sent Heavenward from Americans, than at any time in my 80 years. Those who know Jewish history are familiar with the times when things reached a point that enough members of a society prayed for divine help â€“ and it was granted.
At issue tomorrow, is godliness vs. ungodliness. Liberty is as evangelical as it is political. Are we to be a nation (society) governed by laws that reflect and protect our liberty? â€“ or â€“ Are we to be a nation (society) governed by force and manipulation?
I believe that as long as American Christians do not recognize the serious threat that Statism presents to Freedom, America will continue to elect people to office who have very dangerous worldviews. This current fiasco could have been foreseen. Barack Obama is only doing what he told us he would do. Americans still elected him. The Democratic Party is only doing the kind of thing they have promised to do. Americans still elected them.
The problem is with the American people for ever having elected the current government.
One way or the other God will triumph, and freedom will triumph; but ever time we allow such massive expansions of the federal government we are putting our posterity’s future in jeopardy. The question isn’t so much “will God and freedom triumph in the end” but “how much suffering will we inflict on ourselves before we allow God’s plans for Liberty to triumph?
I am asking God to help me – to help me spend some time hearing His heart and approaching Him in prayer for our nation that this disaster would be avoided. Then, whether it is avoided or not, I will be praying that God illuminates the hearts of America so that we throw out the people who are trying to push this travesty on us, and then never again elect such a majority of people who are foolish enough to ignore the dangers of a Messianic State.
