America You Will Have What You Ask
A Crossroad in the Balance
America, you will have what you ask. The 2008 Election is a crossroad in the balance. The cross-road is simply, the path of JESUS CHRIST or the path of anti-christ. The balance is life everlasting or a life of corruption.
Job 8:13: So are the paths of all that forget God; and the hypocrite’s hope shall perish: 14: Whose hope shall be cut off, and whose trust shall be a spider’s web. 15: He shall lean upon his house, but it shall not stand: he shall hold it fast, but it shall not endure.
At the present time it appears that, America is saying in so many ways “make us a king to judge us like all the nations” (1Samuel 8:5-8). Yet the leaders (kings) in America have turned aside after lucre, and took bribes, and perverted judgment and have rejected GOD that HE should not reign over them.
“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” “For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.” Galatians 6:7-8
The fore-leaders of this great Nation understood the potential of a godless nation, so they established one of the most profound documents ever given to man; after the Bible.
“We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.” Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution states that; “The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and…against domestic violence.” The Constitution guarantees to every state in this union a republican form of government by “we the people of the United States” not the would be leader-kings of this Nation.
Lest we forget, the Bible is clear about nations and people who desire leader-kings and who have rejected GOD. I believe that people need to get serious and understand the Word of GOD, historically and spiritually before it is too late for America.
1Samuel 8:1: And it came to pass, when Samuel was old, that he made his sons judges over Israel. 3: And his sons walked not in his ways, but turned aside after lucre, and took bribes, and perverted judgment. 4: Then all the elders of Israel gathered themselves together, and came to Samuel unto Ramah, 5: 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. 6: But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the LORD. 7: 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. 8: 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. 9: Now therefore hearken unto their voice: howbeit yet protest solemnly unto them, and shew them the manner of the king that shall reign over them. 10: And Samuel told all the words of the LORD unto the people that asked of him a king. 11: And he said, This will be the manner of the king that shall reign over you: He will take your sons, and appoint them for himself, for his chariots, and to be his horsemen; and some shall run before his chariots. 12: And he will appoint him captains over thousands, and captains over fifties; and will set them to ear his ground, and to reap his harvest, and to make his instruments of war, and instruments of his chariots. 13: And he will take your daughters to be confectionaries, and to be cooks, and to be bakers. 14: And he will take your fields, and your vineyards, and your oliveyards, even the best of them, and give them to his servants. 15: And he will take the tenth of your seed, and of your vineyards, and give to his officers, and to his servants. 16: And he will take your menservants, and your maidservants, and your goodliest young men, and your asses, and put them to his work. 17: He will take the tenth of your sheep: and ye shall be his servants. 18: And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you; and the LORD will not hear you in that day.
1Samuel 9:1: Now there was a man of Benjamin, whose name was Kish, the son of Abiel, the son of Zeror, the son of Bechorath, the son of Aphiah, a Benjamite, a mighty man of power. 2: And he had a son, whose name was Saul, a choice young man, and a goodly: and there was not among the children of Israel a goodlier person than he: from his shoulders and upward he was higher than any of the people.
1Samuel 10:17: And Samuel called the people together unto the LORD to Mizpeh; 18: And said unto the children of Israel, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, I brought up Israel out of Egypt, and delivered you out of the hand of the Egyptians, and out of the hand of all kingdoms, and of them that oppressed you: 19: And ye have this day rejected your God, who himself saved you out of all your adversities and your tribulations; and ye have said unto him, Nay, but set a king over us. Now therefore present yourselves before the LORD by your tribes, and by your thousands. 21: When he had caused the tribe of Benjamin to come near by their families, the family of Matri was taken, and Saul the son of Kish was taken: and when they sought him, he could not be found. 23: And they ran and fetched him thence: and when he stood among the people, he was higher than any of the people from his shoulders and upward. 24: And Samuel said to all the people, See ye him whom the LORD hath chosen, that there is none like him among all the people? And all the people shouted, and said, God save the king. 25: Then Samuel told the people the manner of the kingdom, and wrote it in a book, and laid it up before the LORD. And Samuel sent all the people away, every man to his house.

America, GOD will give you what you ask for in your leader-king. He will give you a liar and deceiver as you ask. So be careful of what you desire. Do not complain when you get what you deserve. For it is GOD who changes the times and the seasons and it is he that removes leader-kings, and setteth up leader-kings.

The Bottomline is, have you made the LORD your trust? If not, please do so.
