Rick Joyner on Obama

This seems to line up with the idea that we are under judgement in the USA. Division. Obama. Rick Joyner of Morningstar has written this on the issue.

An Ultimate Judgment

Consider this. In Scripture, one of the ways that a nation was judged by the Lord was to give them immature leadership. Obama is the most inexperienced Presidential candidate in history. He has proven so indecisive that while a state senator he voted “Present” over 140 times instead of taking a position on a bill. He has never authored even one piece of significant legislation, and yet, as has been pointed out, he had time to author two autobiographies. He has never been the chief executive of anything. The White House is not the place for on-the-job training in leadership. It is truly remarkable that Obama was nominated, and I am personally very encouraged that our nation would vote for an African American man to be our President. However, if we vote such inexperience into office during such a crisis, we are under judgment as a nation.

Does that mean that I would give up on America? Never. As I have also shared in previous Bulletins, even the judgment of God is an indication that He has not given up on us, but He disciplines His own. Several kinds of judgment are in Scripture, and only one of them is condemnation. All of the others are discipline from the Lord, and He disciplines those whom He loves.

Neither would I give up on Obama, but as I said, I will be earnestly praying for him and do all I can to support and honor our President. I will be earnestly praying for the Lord to give him wisdom. However, I will be preparing for what I believe will have signaled a much worse economic crisis than we are now in. I also will see this as a clear turn down the path toward great times of trouble, and therefore will be devoted to preparing for them.

Even though as a nation we may be in real jeopardy, these are the times of the harvest, and we know that the kingdom will come and the Lord’s will is going to ultimately be done right here on earth as it is in heaven. That is what I will be devoted to preparing for. This could be an even greater opportunity to see the glory of the Lord appear on His people—so let us seek to turn people to the Lord with even greater zeal.

If we are able to recover from the present situation, our economy is still going to change. There have been anointed, prophetic warnings coming to the church for decades encouraging God’s people to get out of debt and live within our means. Those who have obeyed these warnings will be in a position to prosper, regardless of what happens in the world. We have a kingdom, and a kingdom economy, which cannot be shaken. Let us resolve, regardless of who is elected President, or who controls the Congress, to only build on the foundation of the kingdom of God. Even if we do recover from the present troubles, ultimately we know that everything that can be shaken will be shaken, and the time will come that everything that has not been built on the Rock will be destroyed by the storms. At the same time, the mountain of the house of the Lord will be ascending. That is a clear, biblical promise.

The fact that the Lord has left your nation with a choice between Obama and McCain is not a blessing. Having to choose between these two is a really sad position to be in. I know that you hope that McCain will die and Palin will take over, but that is just wishful thinking. She is not the solution, because she is already out of her depth and already being manipulated and controlled by the Republican machine. Using a Christian to do their dirty work is a cunning strategy.

The question you need to ask is “When did the season change”. I suspect that you will find that it changed some time ago. This season does not begin with Obama or McCain. I realise that you cannot receive this, but George Bush and his father were part of this pattern too, as was Bill Clinton.

Oh my! Following is a Word from my Spiritual Dad - I pray that the CHURCH may HEAR the Word of the Lord. Ohh Lord! Give your people HEARING EARS! Apply the eye slave, open the eyes of our hearts Lord. Break up the fallow ground... Abba, drop the gift of repentence into our hearts that we have been fixated on THINGS and gaining THINGS instead of gaining the KINGDOM. Abba!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Nancy

I believe that the events of the day that are happening right now, although they are, in part, the result of greed and avarice, are not just material events that have been precipitated by the actions of a few very powerful men in the world’s eye. The crises that are unfolding right now have been caused by man’s greed, but they are also God’s gracious ( yes gracious) correction because His plans for the USA have gotten so off track that mid course correction is now necessary. Indeed if He did not correct this, then the world monetary markets would self destruct and chaos would reign. That time is not just yet although it will happen at some point in order to facilitate the anti-Christ’s rise to power and his manifestation as a false minion of peace.

Until the Lord sees the correction bring forth His desired results, I think that even the world’s leaders will not be able to facilitate an effective plan to curb, stem or stop the present downward flow that is prevalent world wide. The world’s answer is credit and more credit because the world system revolves on credit! This correction is happening because His people the Christians have cried out about injustice. It has always been this way and He is now positioning the world for the Christian to rise up and be what he or she has been ordained to be from the foundation of the world. It is not judgment on America as you will and have heard, and it is not the end of time just yet although we are closer than ever. It is the correction of the world system prior to coming for a bride without spot or wrinkle. I believe that if the Christian will stand in this hour and pray, and seek His face we will see the greatest revival that this World has ever experienced. Heretofore there have been limited revivals in contained areas, but it is time for Christians all over the world to come together in one mind and one accord in a spirit of prayer and restoration. Lay down the differences that separate us and join hands to stand in this hour.
