Barak Obama Launches An Historic Campaign

By Jimmy DeYoung

The Democratic National Convention witnessed an historic event as America's first Black man to receive the nomination to run for President of the US, Barak Obama, launched his historic campaign in front of some 75,000 people at Mile High Stadium in Denver, Colorado.

The spectacular event of Obama's acceptance speech played out in a stadium usually reserved for the National Football League, concluded a week of partisan politics at the Democratic National Convention and set the stage for the Republican National Convention to take place next week. Both candidates for President of the US believe that they are the one to lead America into the next four years, four years that look to be a rough ride with the world scene as it is today and seemingly becoming more dangerous moment by moment.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The election of a US President will indeed impact the world and help set the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

As the two major candidates for President of the US square off in the days leading up to the November election date, citizens of the US will hear from both candidates high sounding rhetoric plus accusations that the other candidate has no clue as to how to move this nation into the next four years. By the time election day rolls around, most US voters will be bored with all the campaign slogans and the continual stream of TV spots explaining why their candidate is the best for President.

This scenario is actually how politics works and it's part of a process for selecting the person to become a world leader and the US President, the outgrowth of God's establishment of human government found in Genesis 9:6. Romans 13 reveals that the one selected to lead America in the future will be the one the Lord has put in place, Romans 13:1. In Revelation 17:17, the student of Bible prophecy comes to an understanding that God uses world leaders to accomplish His will, which is evidenced in Bible history and predicted for Bible prophecy.

The world stage is set today and the actors for the last drama to be played out are quickly moving into place, the curtain is about to go up on the last act before the Lord's return.
