An opinionated view on the aftermath of the 2008 presidential campaign

Let me share this with you, but you will need your bibles to fully fathom the gist of this essay. I imagine our ancestors are doing a jig watching what has unfolded in this past presidential election. They rejoice knowing that the day had finally come where there’s a chance for change. I volunteered my services and campaigned for a man that stood head and shoulders above his opponents. Remarkably, he defied racism and didn’t allow race to color his canvas. I watched all of the debates, looked on with chagrin hearing people voice sentiments of not voting for him because of his color, or looking on in dismay as they attacked his religious affiliation, and even watching with a heavy heart as they found any conceivable way to besmirch his character.

I feel that God had a lot to say about the state of affairs that made up this remarkable happening. I hasten to say that it had already been ordained Biblically, and the spirituality of it should not be ignored. The Divine order depicting that "the last shall be first and the first shall be last" in my opinion is relative to us finally being favored to improve our lot, and Barack is the standard bearer and icon for it. Of course, we the people are not exempt from doing our part, and take advantage of the significance of what we have achieved. Obama will need help, and what a magnificent time to step up to the plate. Moreover, I will paraphrase a bit of that Biblical content thereof to illustrate my point in two scriptures God identifies and implicates His visionary.

Go if you will to the book of Hebrews 11:32-34 as it depict (Barak) a man of faith: "Barak, who through faith conquered kingdoms, administered justice, and gained what was promised; who shut the mouths of lions, quenched the fury of the flames, and escaped the edge of the sword; whose weakness was turned to strength, and who became powerful in battle routing foreign nations".

But wait! Now go to Judges 4:6 - God through Deborah commands Barak "Go and lead the way..." This is AWESOME! There's no way in the world that can't convince me that this man wont be successful. His disposition and penchant for orderliness amid the earmarks of a born leader is evident. If you think like I do you’d know that this is our time, and a chance to purpose in your heart what need to be done individually and collectively. The threshold has been crossed. We must do our part to ensure that this is a total effort where all of us band together as one - both nations Black and white to fulfill what God has already revealed. It's a done deal!

It is a great thing that Obama has won for sure, but Biblical prophecy has nothing to do with it. It never ceases to amaze me how people always find someting in the Bible to justify this or that. The Bible was written by people - not God and it is highly unlikely that there is any such thing as God any more than King Neptune lives in the ocean.
