Obama Will Change


One can easily search the Internet and find people prophesying that Obama will turn to God and change his present course. He will set this nation back onto a path it should be going. Are such prophecies accurate? Let us go to the Scripture and see if this is what God is saying.

Before I begin the subject, I want to comment that it is no surprise to me the leaders of this nation at this point in time have decided not to attack Syria. Satan would love to destabilize Syria even more, but God has other plans and is countering Satan’s agenda for Syria. Now, back on topic; in your Bible if you have one, go to 2 Chronicles 33. In this chapter we are told about the kingship of Manasseh, who was the son of Hezekiah. Manasseh had one of the longest reigns of all kings in the history of the kingdoms of Judah and Israel. His reign lasted 55 years. He was a pivotal king in Judah’s history. It was what he did during his reign that put the nail in the coffin for Judah’s destruction. Jeremiah 15: 4 says, “And I will cause them (the Jews) to be removed into all kingdoms of the earth, because of Manasseh…for that which he did in Jerusalem.”

Manasseh reared up altars for Baal, and put altars for false gods in the Temple. He made his son pass through the fire of an altar and practiced witchcraft and the occult. He led the Jews to commit all kinds of depravity abhorrent to the Lord. God said, “It is enough!” after he died. His judgment on Judah could not be stopped although he sent Jeremiah to try and get them to repent. Manasseh’s long and evil reign caused the nation as a whole to reach a point of depravity from which it would never recover. Destruction was now on the horizon.

This is where we are today in this nation. God is sending out Jeremiahs to warn this country to repent or be destroyed. That is why he told me to write my book. And yet, there are prophets out there saying Obama will be touched by God in the White House and change. He will lead this country back to a right-standing with God. Is that possible? Keep reading 2 Chronicles 33 and discover a secret.

Starting in verse 11 it says, “The Lord brought upon them the host of the king of Assyria, which took Manasseh among the thorns, and bound him with fetters and carried him to Babylon. And when he was in affliction, he besought the Lord his God and humbled himself greatly before the God of his fathers, and prayed to him…and (God) heard his supplication and brought him again to Jerusalem into his kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that the Lord was God.” After this incident, Manasseh began undoing all the evil things he had done. He was a changed man like prophets are saying Obama will be, and he began setting his country back onto a path of following God. However, as we saw in Jeremiah 15: 4, God had not changed his opinion on destroying the kingdom of Judah. Manasseh’s reversal did not stop God’s judgment. Why?

The reason is simple. The people as a whole were still corrupt. Manasseh may have changed, but the people throughout their society were still far away from God spiritually. They were doing their usual things which did not include God in their lives and certainly not obeying his commandments. They were spiritually separated from God and that meant their destruction. God was going to reward them according to their works. They got what they deserved. They reaped all the things they had sown. That is why changing Obama is not going to save this country. We have sown the seeds of destruction and those seeds will reach maturity. When they do, chaos will fill our society. There is only one way out that God gives us and that is to repent, now.

Look again; do you think we are blessed? Psalms 107: 38 says, “He blesses them also, so that they are multiplied greatly; and allows not their cattle to decrease.” When God blesses a country, it is because they are in a right relationship with him. And from this verse we see he promises us that our cattle will not decrease. God does not lie. He always keeps his promises. When he says he will do something, he will enforce his word. So, if we are no longer under God’s blessings, then is our cattle population declining?  The answer is yes. Our cattle population is at its lowest level since 1952. There has been a substantial decline the last several years. Experts are beginning to worry about this problem. There is no doubt; if you want a way to know if God is blessing a nation, you can look at the cattle population to see if it is on the rise or not. Is it declining? If it is, you as a nation are in trouble. You are spiritually separated from God.

To sum all of this up: Obama cannot save this nation by turning to God. He is not the key to saving this nation; we are. We have to repent and turn back to God to save the United States. There is no other way. Praying for Obama to change is not going to change our hearts which is what God is using to judge whether we should be destroyed or not. We truly are in need of God’s help. We need his mercy, but we cannot have that until we call on God and want to change. That is what salvation means. Salvation is not only for individuals; it is for countries. Both have to use the same procedure to obtain God’s mercy.
