Then all the elders of Israel gathered themselves together, and came to Samuel unto Ramah, And said unto him, Behold, thou art old, and thy sons walk not in thy ways: now make us a king to judge us like all the nations. But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the LORD. And the LORD said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them. According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt even unto this day, wherewith they have forsaken me, and served other gods, so do they also unto thee. (I Samuel 8:4-8 KJV)
Today’s message title may seem unrealistic sermon, but it is important for us to hear why our nation becomes so much of My Needs Generation than Giving Glory to God. Just like the people of Israel, our nation is looking for someone who would lead us to peace. I understand our nation needs government leaders, but we first need God to lead our nation. Without God’s direction, our nation would become deeply in trouble.
If we look on the history of Presidents, we would see many of their failures to be in leadership under God and lead the nation. For example, our former President Bush (Jr.) explained that he is the part of Satanic culture by inviting Ozzy Osbourne into White House Ball on Saturday, May 4, 2002. Currently, President Obama is trying to push for the Health Reform legislation, even though Americans reject his idea of leading this universal health coverage. If you read his plan, you will find out that the health coverage is controlled by government, which it would lead us into One World Government. Last year, former Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger, proclaimed that he pointed President Obama to be the world dictator, which he can lead us to Antichrist. Wow! This is why President Obama received the Nobel Prize, even though he just began his presidency.
Our nation has astray from God for years, because we trust on our political leaders only. This is why the Church must involve in political process. We do not need to belong to the one particular political party, except Christendom.
Let God to be our President, King, and Lord. The Bible said that His government will last forever. We will reign with Him for eternity.
