“If the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch”–Matthew 15: 14
And are we falling right now. Just look at this time in our history. McCain got booed by his own supporters at a town hall meeting yesterday for not being tough enough on Obama. But McCain doesn’t realize that they are only crying out for true leadership in these dark times. They want a hero, someone who is brave, noble and courageous, who will save them from the fear of perilous times. It is “innate and written in divine letters” in the heart of people to look for a champion during hard times.
But our leaders are selfish and inept at best, or at worst, just plain evil. 10% of the public approve of Congress, the place where three of the candidates work (Gov. Palin is approved by 85% of Alaskans no matter what the media says about her). Heads of drug cartels have a higher approval rating than 10%! President Bush sits at 29%.
And so 50% of the voting populace are desperately looking to Barack Hussein Obama. The masses are so in need of a hero/leader that they are falling for the smooth operator/orator. They cannot see the obvious faults in his character, for they are blinded by the hunger for a trustworthy leader. They cannot see that his past associations with shady characters is the norm for him, not the exception.
Obama kicked off his political career in the domestic terrorist Bill Ayers living room, as well as serving on boards with him. Rev. Jeremiah Wright, his pastor and mentor for 20 years, hates America and is virulently racist ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWRs6avkm4s&feature=related ). Louis Farrakhan fully endorses him, calling him the “Messiah” ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ha5HEc-vOJs ). Then you have the Rezco connection, ACORN, et al.
Why doesn’t John McCain hammer Obama on all this? Because McCain’s hands are dirty, also. He carries the guilt that all of the world leaders share; they all are guilty of not seeking the living God for the people. Both are caught in lies, lies, lies.
Some are turning to God through prayer over the economic, political, and religious abyss we are being thrown in. Our leaders have failed us because they call not on God. But is God hearing us?
The prophet Isaiah saw this very day we are living in. He says that God wants to hear us, but He won’t because “your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear. For your…lips have spoken lies, your tongue has muttered perverseness. None calls for justice, nor any pleads for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies…” (59: 2-4). We have been told lies by our pastors who have said that we will never stop sinning, never stop telling lies, in other words. And so we go on each day with little hope of the true change of the heart. But that is a lie. Check out I John 3:9.
We are swimming in lies and falsehoods about everything–the political, the spiritual, the economic. And so “we wait for light, but behold obscurity; for brightness, but we walk in darkness. We grope for the wall like the blind, and we grope as if we had no eyes…we are in desolate places as dead men…Our sins testify against us…Yes, truth fails…” (Isa. 59: 9-10).
There is no hero, no righteous, noble, and courageous person to lead us. “And God saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor…” (v. 16). So the great Spirit Creator came down into mortal flesh and became the “arm that brought salvation” (v. 16). And His name is not Obama nor McCain.
We as a people are in the same spiritual state as our leaders. We are being railroaded into a socialistic one world government (It will come a bit faster with Obama, but come it will). It is destined scripturally to be. It has always taken jackboot heels on necks to get God’s people to cry out to Him.
When our hearts turn to Him, He will hear from heaven and come down this time wearing “the garments of vengeance for clothing” (59: 17). Christ will be kicking tail and taking names when He comes back. He will uproot and destroy the current world system, Mystery Babylon, and will set up His everlasting government.
The world is clamoring for their hero/leader. He will come as a counterfeit messiah. After his fall, Christ will return and be the true righteous Deliverer that the people of the earth are beginning to cry out for.
