During this past week of the implementation of Obamacare and the government shutdown I have been asking myself how we, as a free people, got here. I’ve thought about it, prayed about it and talked about it, but then I came across a Scripture verse which answered my question.
In Romans, the first chapter, we see many similarities between Paul’s writing and today’s news and in verse 18 it is written; “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness” (NKJV). But you ask is this the wrath of God? It’s a good question and one I am about to answer.
Yes, it is the wrath of God not upon His people but the world who has stuck their finger in His eye one too many times. Obamacare is an unjust law, passed, promoted and imposed upon we the people who did not and still do not want socialized medicine. With many losing their health insurance and premiums rising do we not think many have beseeched our God to intervene in this earthly crisis?
I know I have gone to the Throne of Grace more than once about the injustice not only of this law but because of the many other things this administration has done by not following the laws of the land. Through executive orders, going around Congress, persecuting their opponents by the heavy hand of the IRS, despising those who loyally served them in Benghazi and on our southern border in Fast and Furious as well as the many other scandals and then dismissing our allies, especially God’s chosen people of Israel, the Obama administration has not only lied and deceived we the people but aligned itself and our nation with those who want to destroy this land of the free.
Years ago, Tennessee Ernie Ford made a recording of the song “This is my country” and that it is and yours as well, so it is up to we the people to stand for what we know as the Truth, not only in our founding documents but in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We all know the Scripture verse in 2 Chronicles 7:14 about healing our land but we must also believe the Lord will do it. Let not your heart be troubled as Jesus told us because regardless of what it looks like today our God has neither abandoned us nor will He forsake us. Be strong and of a good courage as the Lord told Joshua and see the victory of God. We’ve won but we just haven’t seen it yet. Keep the faith because it’s far from over; we will win and soon I might add.
