\\HELL IS AWAITING. Ha, Haaaa.AhhhhJesus.
---catherine on 11/22/10\\

This is another reason why we know you're a false prophet who speaks with demons face to face.

If your heart were right with God, you wouldn't laugh at the idea of people going to hell. Rather you would weep for them.

Thus saith the Lord: catherine, Hell will lick its lips when it sees you coming, unless you repent!
---Cluny on 11/22/10


I thought the Ps 109 reference was pretty clever. It made me laugh...but then I never did take it seriously. I'm surprised any of you do. If it had been directed toward Bush, you would have thought it was great! Don't deny it.

Actually, I don't think it's really our place to judge if Reagan, Bush or Obama are Christians. One can hardly help forming an opinion, but God alone sees what is in their hearts.
---Donna66 on 11/23/10


"All whom are praying against the President, or are praying against any soul, are not with me, and you all need to repent from this foolish sin. He that planted the ear, will he not hear? he that formed the eye, will he not see? Yes, my eyes run to and fro throughout the earth, and I see the works of every one. O you tongue of death and dissension, be silent now, look to yourself into the looking-glass, and here, see you, that you are not with me. Have I told you to mock any one? says the Lord, to use your tongue to dis and not to bless? No, but I say to you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them hating you, and pray over them that shame you and persecute you."

Obama is as arrogant as was King Herod. Perhaps he deserves the same fate.

Act 12:21-23 And upon a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his throne, and made an oration unto them. And the people gave a shout, saying, It is the voice of a god, and not of a man. And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the glory: and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost.
---jerry6593 on 11/23/10


We are supposed to pray for those in leadership positions.
Jesus stated he prayed not for the world.
I you can't find it in your heart to pray for a leader it is better to not pray at all than to pray against them.

I believe now christianity is being slandered by this new statement made by Glen Beck...right out of Hitlers play book, now blaming Jews for the economy. We're all going to hell in a hand basket!
---kathr4453 on 11/22/10

I don't listen/watch G Beck. Sounds like he has figured out what many blinded haven't after 2,000+ years. They are Anti-Christ. You know, the ones Christ mentioned. The ones you idolize. The ones with Christian best interest on their hard little hearts.
Probably just you and your followers in the handbasket. Lonely Women who attempt to teach an preach. Who fearlessly twist and stir and run from house to house for reaction.

Job 12:17 "He leadeth counsellors away spoiled, and maketh the judges fools." 23 "He increaseth the nations, and destroyeth them: he enlargeth the nations, and straiteneth them again." 24 "He taketh away the heart of the chief of the people of the earth, and causeth them to wander in a wilderness where there is no way." 25 "They grope in the dark without light, and he maketh them to stagger like a drunken man."

Isaiah 14:24 "The LORD of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass, and as I have purposed, so shall it stand."
---christan on 11/22/10


Cluny, I totally agree with your last statement. And francis too. GOD is not in the republican party or a republican or democrat.

I believe now christianity is being slandered by this new statement made by Glen Beck...right out of Hitlers play book, now blaming Jews for the economy.

Good grief! We're all going to hell in a hand basket!

Christians pray for the President to be driven or to seek HIS face because the president's confession of Christianity is confusing to many, but so is the confession of W and Palin.

We are all hypocrites.

---larry on 11/22/10

I confess that I thought Ronald Reagan was Christian, and that since He followed the stars, so did I. And I thought that all that was O.K. to do. John Lennon's WOMAN was my favorite song! Oh, the Stars!

Until I learned that I was being a HYPOCRITE. You can't be trusting GOD and the cult called Astrology.

I'd say that GOD sees us in the same way that he sees President Obama. The only difference is that Christians are "blameless" because of the Blood of Jesus Christ.
---Augie on 11/22/10


\\Some times the line between GOP and GOD are blurred
---francis on 11/22/10\\

You have a good point, francis, though I myself do not.

However, too many people have confused the Gospel of Jesus Christ with cultural conservatism and see the GOP as its champion.

Too many Christians are falling for one of the temptations rejected by Jesus: to use secular power to accomplish a religious end.

"Put not your trust in princes [or politicians], in sons of men, in whom is NO salvation."

And Jesus said, "My Kingdom is NOT of this world!"
---Cluny on 11/22/10




kathr4453-- If MarkV is a "friend" of mine, it is because I understand and mostly agree with him on doctrine. That unrepentant sinners go to hell, is something I thought you agreed with. My only point to catherine was that we can pray for people even if they are wrong.

Kath, the things you say are every bit as insulting (I think more) than what markV says. If he says sinners go to hell, he is right. BUT when you call people who disagree with you "STUPID", I think you are wrong.

I post what I believe, whether or not they agree with anybody else. You have made your disagreement with MarkV something personal, and are bent on forcing him to recant. Please leave me out of your personal conflicts.

There are T-shirts being sold which read " PRAY FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA PSALMS 109."

here is part of psalms 106:

Psalms 109:8 Let his days be few, and let another take his office.
9 Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.
10 Let his children be continually vagabonds, and beg: let them seek [their bread] also out of their desolate places.
11 Let the extortioner catch all that he hath, and let the strangers spoil his labour.
12 Let there be none to extend mercy unto him: neither let there be any to favour his fatherless children.
13 Let his posterity be cut off, [and] in the generation following let their name be blotted out.

Can you honestly call these people christian?
---francis on 11/22/10


Sag, I believe many already understand who God is, but nevertheless they insist on putting their own spin on the Word of God because their theology is so corrupt and they don't want to give it up, and so make comments that go against who God is, completely forgetting they are speaking against His deity.
I heard Kathr mention that "God cannot save anyone from the holy of holies" Now, I was shocked when she said that. She come's out with some beauties. I cannot keep up.
---Mark_V. on 11/22/10


Good Question SusieQ and Francis is probably right that many confuse the GOP and GOD.

I would tend to think those who pray against the president are probably not Christians but religious conservatives.

Christians pray for the President to be driven or to seek HIS face because the president's confession of Christianity is confusing to many, but so is the confession of W and Palin.



W telling CBN he doesn't take the bible literally and Palin claiming to be spirit-filled and then using Fox News to label people bastards.

We are all hypocrites.

I pray for President Obama, W and Palin and all other leaders each morning time certain 7:15.
---larry on 11/22/10


Kathr, the only people that rebuke me are those who think like you and believe what you say. That does not bother me. For God is permitting them to do what they do. God does not make them, He only allows them. He is allowing you to go deeper in the hole and will not stop you until your repent.
There is nothing more simple in Scripture then to know God is in control of all things. That nothing happens that God doesn't already know will happen. All results are in, Scripture has closed, and it will be as He has said it will be. All you do is argue to no avail. I say I believe in Catherine when she is right, when she is wrong I will say so. Like I do not believe in today's prophets. What can they say that hasn't already been said by the Lord?
---Mark_V. on 11/22/10


Well, in any case you are wrong. God laughs at His enemies, because, He knows that their time is coming. HELL IS AWAITING. Ha, Haaaa.AhhhhJesus.

Many Christians pray AGAINST Obama.

Some times the line between GOP and GOD are blurred
---francis on 11/22/10


When God allowed Israel to be overthrown by Gentiles, OL NEB for one, it was because of Israel's disobedience. Jeremiah WARNED AND WARNED but Israel failed to listen.

God was going to destroy Nineveh, but that nation repented and God spared that nation from His wrath and destruction. IF Abraham had found only 5 righteous people in Sodom, God would have spared them.

Yes, in the end we know GOD will have the final VICTORY and a New heaven and earth will be. But it's like your telling a woman being raped to just go along and take it, because it's God's will. That's what happens when we are told we are puppets and have no will of our own! PRAY people!
---kathr4453 on 11/22/10


catherine, God said he did not delight in the death etc of the wicked. God also says, he will show mercy to those who show mercy.

He gives more grace to the Humble.

Donna66, catherine is only repeating what MarkV says here all the time. I'm confused by your wishy washy ness that you fail to scold MarkV's awful comments that the wicked/unelect DESERVE HELL, but call catherine on it.

Many here have rebuked MarkV for saying these same things, and YOU DEFEND HIM...Can you explain why you do that? It's hard to take anyone seriously who contradict themselves based on friendship rather than truth, not rebuking even friends who are wrong.

---kathr4453 on 11/22/10


What I believe people do not get is that God permitted Obama and every single leader to be in power.
---Mark_V. on 11/22/10

Thanks for understanding. I've been asked to leave prayer meetings over that. Many People/Christians "think" like Catherine. There IS a reason behind what GOD "permits" in this world.

All of us, even myself, don't understand everything or the reasons behind it all. Isaiah 55:8-9 explains it:

For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,
declares the LORD.

As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.

1. The pronoun here should be WHO, not WHOM.

2. Regardless of the pronoun, remember this in the future next time you criticize any of the Christians here by calling them "dissers" or saying they "have no light" just because they disagree with you.
---Cluny on 11/22/10


Sag, that was a great answer. What I believe people do not get is that God permitted Obama and every single leader to be in power. They are there for the purpose of God. They might be working their evil ways, but God is working those ways for good. He either allowes it or permittes it. For whatever reason He did, it is in God's hands. If someone is leading a nation without God permitting it or allowing it, then that leader has more power then God, and as we know, no one has more power then God. He raises kingdoms and nations and brings them down. Sin is but a tool He uses to bring about His plan. When He so desires to do away we sin, it will only be because He has no more use for it.

pls read daniel & the story of nebuchenezzar. he wants us to turn from our wicked ways. that is why we see many wicked people living longer lives that those who do good.

look at the story of saul in acts.
---mike on 11/22/10


Catherine:

Several other bloggers seem to disagree with your postings, and/or, with the sources.

I believe that the GOD of the Bible wants us ALL to remember that:

EACH and EVERYONE of us human beings is: Evil, Wicked, Fallen, etc. because of the SIN that GOD permits on the Earth. SIN is one of the tools that GOD is using to bring about HIS plan for the human race.

We may not always LIKE the effects of SIN. Or, the people that GOD permits to lead the world's countries. Such as: President Barack Obama of the USA.

Still, we need to humble ourselves before GOD, realize that only HE is GOD, and control of the world's events is in HIS hands. Amen?

I hope that we can ALL agree on that.

For kings, and for all that are in authority, For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour
For kings, and for all that are in authority,

Second, prayer is not used "against" people, but "for" people, and all whom think God will honor anyone's prayers that are prayed "against" someone, much less "against the righteous" is wholly deluded: for not only will the Omniscient God not honor such foolishness, he may turn that wicked prayer's prayings back upon their own head in order to show them the error of their sin. God is not mocked, he has the last word and not any clay that he has created, and Omnipresent God will repay every sinner whom tries to mock his children.

"Here's the words which God spoke to me. "Pray for your leaders, only if they are GOOD"...." (Catheroine)

According to Scriptures, the word of God, we ought to love and pray even for our enemies (Matthew 5:44) and Saint Paul tell us to pray for our leaders (1 Timothy 2:1-2). This is just another example that the spirit talking to you is NOT God, but a demon or Satan himself.

I've had many Christians bitterly criticize me for saying that. Hmmm. Time to stop and THINK about who they are really criticizing.

They are criticizing GOD and that's wrong! Why? Satan has them under control.

Same goes for criticizing, and/or praying against, President Obama.

\\both are perfectly biblical and Christian and Obama deserves the latter as he sides with Muslims against Christians.

Ecclesiastes 10:20
Curse not the king, no not in thy thought,

Romans 12:14
Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.

Who is right, Blogger9211? You or the Bible?

mike -- Thank the Lord we have the freedom to criticize any president. Critcizing him is not a bad "Christian" testimony, but a testimony to the freedom of expression we have in this country. Some people, of course, would like to close down Fox and will probably try because they hear some things that "upset" them.

There are Prayers that are blessings and there are prayers that are curses. both are perfectly biblical and Christian and Obama deserves the latter as he sides with Muslims against Christians.

These people are quite possibly non-christians. They are ignorant to the Word of God, selfish and hard-hearted. Come from among them. We are to always pray for our leaders including government and other officials.

I pray for Obama, but not that he gets everything he wants, because I believe that some of what he's trying to do is against the good of the country. (He doesn't think so...he sincerely believes in the changes he's trying to make.)

But He's very inexperienced and it shows. The whole world sees it. I pray that God will prevent him from making errors that make us less safe or lead to a worse economy.

Cluny, I don't consider President Obama a King. Although I get your point, he is in a position of authority. So yes, this will do . Thank you.

See, Cluny, I'm teachable.

\\Where in scripture does it say to pray for our government leaders?\\

Will this do, Donna?

1 Tim 2:

1I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men,

2For kings, and for all that are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

3For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour,
---Cluny on 11/17/10


Suzi maybe this will help it can be found in second Timothy 1-2-3

" 1-I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men,

2-For kings, and FOR ALL THAT ARE IN AUIHORITY, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

3-For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour,"

wow
is this how christians testify their faith?

this is a BAD testimony of christians.

there are many leaders that are much WORST than obama. dictators who put their citizens in prison, torture, murder bec. they criticized the dictator

has obama done that? fox news channel continues to criticize obama. if this was in communist china, fox news channel & co. are censored & the newscasters detained

americans are inconvienced, they have I want it NOW mentality.

The word says pray for kings and those in a position of authority.
Kings are a person in authority and a governing person of a kingdom.
---Frank on 11/17/10


I dont see a reason for that, certainly not in the Bible. If we feel his policies are in error, we can and should pray for him to be shown what to do, but that all falls within what we are anyway told to do: pray for kings and all those in authority

No, I see no reason to make such a prayer
