Longing for home

I've been watching more than my share of political videos. The people of America are looking for a Savior. A messiah. They are weary of broken promises. They are weary of failing economies. Of war. Of hunger. Of emptiness.

It all seems to be hitting so hard and so fast. They're looking for answers.

For many, it seems that they have chosen their savior. Their messiah. I've watched several videos wherein celebrity after celebrity pledge their troth and place their hope in Obama. Yes we can. They herald him as the one who was to come. He has become that which their souls is longing for. Messiah.

There was a man who walked the earth two thousand years ago. When he looked around at the hungry and lost, he had compassion for them because they were like sheep without a shepherd. He fed them. And he met their physical needs. Not long after that, he sacrificed his own life in order to meet their spiritual needs.

Jesus is the Messiah. He is the Savior of the world. No politician, no earthly ruler, NO MORTAL MAN CAN EVER TAKE THAT ROLE. He clothed the naked, He fed the hungry, and He commissioned His Church to do the same. We are not to depend on a politician to meet our needs. They will fail. Any person who claims to believe in Christ that believes Obama or any other elected man can save this country needs to fall down on their face and repent before God-because they have surely left their first love. Jesus died ONCE and for all. Things will be rocky until He returns, but be sure, He IS coming back. And HE will establish His kingdom. HE and HE alone can bring about peace. Any other person who promises peace, and appears to be bringing it, be sure to look behind the curtain at the wizard of Oz with his lights and special effects. Behind the scenes, there will be loss of freedoms, loss of morality, and loss of lives.

Herod was a mortal man. He took all the praise that was to be placed on God. He kept that praise for himself. As a young child was bold enough to remind us, Obama would do well to reject the praise and glory that is being heaped upon him. Because antichrist or mere political starlet, he will meet the same end as Herod.

Immediately, because Herod did not give praise to God, an angel of the Lord struck him down, and he was eaten by worms and died. Acts 12:23

America does need a Savior. Jesus is that Savior.
