Change Under Obama, et al.
As the last days of 2013 were passing to a close, the Associated Press released an article that characterized the failings of the Obama administration. “Fits and Starts” and grand notions of successful programs dashed as if waves could hope to hold together upon hitting a rocky shore.
The AP report notes:
“Yet Obama’s agenda of gun control, immigration reform, a grand budget bargain and more sits unfulfilled. Obama’s job approval and personal favorability ratings are near the lowest point of his presidency, with increasing numbers of Americans saying they no longer consider him to be honest or trustworthy. Abroad, too, positive views of Obama have slipped, with confidence in him doing the right thing in world affairs dropping.”

What is the true perspective on matters occurring under Obama’s care and direction? Some examples:
— Under Obama health care is being socialized one step at a time … and those who don’t support certain medical procedures or preventatives are pooled into lending dollars to their unsupportable causes.
— Under Obama the nation’s secrets are exposed.
— Under Obama ‘pot’ is now legal in many states and potentially the grass will be sprayed with opiates and other substances weakening the minds of a once great nation.
— Under Obama the country is idle in military prowess … Only to threaten action while watching another nation’s people flee to the north and east to escape a dictator’s gas attacks.
— Under Obama gives a blind eye and effectively legalizes behaviors … previously on the books as unlawful … in the name of a human right … instead of simply recognizing what is ( biblical or mere ) sin and what is in fact a lifestyle choice. There is a difference! Equal protection and loving all mankind (gay and straight) does not also have to mean compromising morality or biblical truths … but under Obama normality is shifting to something new. Rationalization is shifting correctness.
— Under Obama a nation cannot find reasonable means to stop the guns that shoot people in the workplace, children in schools, and disrupt the peace in peacetime.
— Under Obama unemployment remains high and the economy weak.
— Under Obama the apple of the Lord’s eye is low hanging fruit for enemies all around … and nations spin uranium in preparation of agenda left to their own devices.
But Wait Just A Minute!
What should worry us most is NOT Obama … what is worrisome is that citizens are idly watching. Is what appears to be ‘Obama flaws’ simply his doing? As the days of the end of this time pass by, the US as a whole is looking at all this … what is under Obama is actually on top of a multitude of people. And the world watches and takes note.
Beyond US Shores
And if you, elsewhere in the world, are not under Obama, then why do you sit idly watching all the nations toss about to and fro … there is no rest, no peace, and turmoil over all the earth. Is what you see in the West a mere reflection of troubles that challenge other world leaders? Easy as it is to point a finger at a President or the US, what about where you are? Are there jobless, the hungry, violence and unrest? Can any one leader control a global economy in disarray? How high is unemployment in your region? What is the state of moral concerns where you live? Is a subtle shift transforming the world … globally? For the better?
From the Window
There are no surprises from this window view … for all the current woes are already known and ‘it is written’ like the last days of this year as they pass to a close. Biblically, last days bring humanity in transition from an innocence and peace post World War II to a new world order that is not innocent, no longer placid but on edge, and where technology is taking over people. We are less human, less moral, and struggling with being materially secure. Is that what life is? Material? What does the soul inside of you say?
The world has a yardstick already in place that tells us of political, social, and moral changes yet to come. Biblical prophecy is often sensationalized to the point of being incomprehensible in terms of the present. But when the present state of human affairs reach forward to what the biblical projections have already put in anticipation of tomorrow—so tomorrow is now here—only the alert minds make the connections. Are you aware?
Ironically, Mr. Obama is trying to do what is correct and yet his best efforts are on history’s slippery slope where all humanity is sliding right into the known future. Yes, known, for it is written! We can sympathize with a President’s intention to do well, but also his ratings reveal that his nation’s peoples are aware it is not going well … but then, is it going all the better anywhere for human kind?
Look out your window. Think about it!
What does that quiet inner voice in you say?
What is that voice? What is life, really?
What will 2014 bring us?
