In Spectre, the 25th James Bond film currently in theaters, Oscar-winning actor and villain Christopher Waltz snidely tells Agent 007 these words. While a bit of an overstatement, the point is well taken.
As the years unfold, I am persuaded that countless millions will identify words like these with the Obama presidency. Whether our next president can help dismantle some of what Barack Obama has done remains to be seen. Barring a spiritual awakening in America and the resulting returning to our conservative values led by a uniquely gifted commander-in-chief; the repercussions of Barack Obama’s “transformation of America” will be catastrophic.
It’s why seven years ago Rush Limbaugh said his desire for the Obama presidency was simple: “I hope he fails.”
Scripture tells us, “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice, but when a wicked man beareth rule, the people sigh” (Prv 29:2 ASV). Plainly stated, people have cause to either rejoice or mourn dependent on whether their governing authorities are God-fearing or unrighteous.
When competent and godly leaders rule, they set a tone for the society as they conduct affairs according to God’s standards. The result will not be utopia but rather a general happiness, prosperity and stability in the land. President Obama does not fit this category and that is a primary reason why there is so much mourning throughout our land.
I step back knowing I prayed for this man every single day of his terms in office yet must respectfully but forthrightly assess his “fruit” as disastrous. What he has done has been unbelievably detrimental to the Judeo-Christian principles upon which our nation was founded. Are you aware of how far we’ve fallen under his leadership and lack thereof?
