Who Do You Serve?
Do you know of King Saul, the first king that ever lived? I kind of feel sorry for Obama because he’s more evil than Saul was (but that might be because of his innate ignorance), and of course, God was not happy with King Saul.
And Samuel said, When thou wast little in thine own sight, wast thou not made the head of the tribes of Israel, and the LORD anointed thee king over Israel? And the LORD sent thee on a journey, and said, Go and utterly destroy the sinners the Amalekites, and fight against them until they be consumed. Wherefore then didst thou not obey the voice of the LORD, but didst fly upon the spoil, and didst evil in the sight of the LORD?
And Saul said unto Samuel, Yea, I have obeyed the voice of the LORD, and have gone the way which the LORD sent me, and have brought Agag the king of Amalek, and have utterly destroyed the Amalekites.
But the people took of the spoil, sheep and oxen, the chief of the things which should have been utterly destroyed, to sacrifice unto the LORD thy God in Gilgal.
And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.
For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king (1 Sam 15:17-23).
Obama and his buddies, mainly the Muslims, are in for a world of hurt. God allows things to happen because He gives us freewill, but the time is coming and they will all pay for it dearly:
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 (Gal 6:7-8).
Also, don’t get confused and think just because you worship and maybe even preach the word of Jesus you are going to heaven, as the above scripture says, God will not be mocked. And Jesus Himself says:
Not everyone that saith unto me; Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven, but he that doeth the will of the Father which is in heaven.
Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? And in thy name have cast out devils? And in they name done many wonderful works?
And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity (Matt 7:21-23).
You can’t walk with God and the devil.
He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth (Lk 11:23).
Some people say they have been saved and it doesn’t matter what they do because they can’t lose their salvation. I don’t know where they got that idea, the Bible doesn’t say that, but quite the opposite, and not only that, once you lose your salvation you can’t redeem it.
For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened (saved), and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost,
And have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the world to come.
If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh and put him to an open shame (Heb 6:4-6).
For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries (Heb 10:26-27).
