Why give thanks to God after this corrupted 2008 US election?

Everyday is a time to thank God for His goodness and blessings. Even though, our God blessed land has fallen upon evil and misguided leaders and blind media; the (true) Triune God still deserves our praise and thanks for His provision.

For some of you who read or happen upon this blog; you may have been more discouraged this Thanksgiving Day than ever before. What concerned you most has now taken place; Barack Hussein Obama managed to capture a 2nd term (illegally)  posing as legitimate US president.

For those of us who cherish our US Constitution as much as our guns and our Bibles, you may be almost to the point of despair.

However, friends: Take heart. Cherish those particular Scriptures which promise that those who live a lifestyle of lying and evil will ultimately be exposed. Take heart, because the God of the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures does not lie. Obama (baring true repentance and demonstrable faith) will be as the grass today which is gone tomorrow. In the end, he will be held responsible and accountable before a holy God. He will receive his just reward. He will eternally perish with all the wicked.

Following, is a Thanksgiving piece I authored this morning, on my The Christian Message website. Enjoy the story and links:

Following The Great Flood God promised that “seedtime and harvest” would continue. That is primarily interrupted by sinful human selfishness; wars and continued terrorism, being prime examples.

Thanksgiving with a farm family and the barnyard pigs – Via TheChristian Message.org

Here, in the United States, we celebrate Thanksgiving. It is a day designated by government to be honored. Our nation was founded upon the Judeo / Christian religions; and so it makes sense and is fitting to recognize our common Creator for all of His gracious goodness. Thanksgiving, presupposes that thanks be given to someone. Christ’s disciples, naturally give thanks to their Creator, Sustainer and Redeemer, Jesus Christ.

Thanksgiving story:

This morning upon awakening, I remembered a story my father would tell at Thanksgiving. It was about a university professor, whose car had broken down on a countryside road, Thanksgiving Day. He walked to the nearest farm house to ask if he could use their phone. Once graciously welcomed inside, he saw the farmer’s family and wife all gathered at the table, waiting to dig into the Thanksgiving dinner. He was invited to have dinner with the family, to which he immediately and eagerly accepted.

After the prayer of thanks to God for the luscious feast (and dinner had begun), the university professor asked the farmer:

“I see that you and your family still believe in that old time religion. How can you pray and give thanks to a god that you haven’t seen?” Don’t you know by now that you’ve evolved from the animal kingdom? Haven’t you ever heard of evolution?”

The wise farmer didn’t care to be drawn into a testy discussion during the Thanksgiving feast with all gathered around; so, he graciously responded:

“After dinner; come out with me and watch me feed my pigs. Then, I will give you an answer to your questions.”

Soon after dinner the farmer and the university professor left the empty plates of the farm house kitchen and visited the barnyard. There, the farmer fed the pigs. It was the corn and grain feed which was grown on his own farm. Then the farmer related to the “learned” university professor, that he always counted on the good Lord’s promise, following Noah’s Flood; that the Lord would always provide for the earth the suitable environment for “seedtime and harvest.”  – Genesis 8:22

The farmer continued by saying: 

“These pigs get fed because of the good Lord’s promised provision; but, these pigs are not like us humans. These pigs wait for either members of my family or me to feed them; and, once they are thrown their food, they don’t hesitate one second to thank us or the good Lord for all their life sustaining provision. That primarily is what distinguishes us from the pigs. If you Mr. University Professor wish to live your life like these pigs; that is your choice. But, for me and my family; we will praise and serve our Creator Lord!”


Romans 1:16-25:

16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. 17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.

24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. – Christian New Testament – Romans 1:16-25 – Please also note the remainder of the chapter: Romans 1:26-32

    What is the matter with you Nathan? We THANK GOD for both our Blessings and miseries.. because we created them both. What do you want GOD to do come down here and fix the elections? We are in this situation because the conservatives DON”T know how to play this dirty game called politics. The DEMS have been stealing elections since Andy Jackson’s days. We have allow the leftist modern libs take over the candy store while we sat on our butts for 45 years. Now, they are entrench in our political system like a home infested with termites. Time to get out there and be pro-active and flip this leftist insanity around. We are going to have to do exactly what they did since the 60s.

    We conservatives allowed that white trash Clinton to be president and the Dems have now lowered the bar so low that anyone can be President and Obama is proof. They don’t care who is in the WH because the left are dogs with the morals and class of a mutt. We are all afraid of attack this fraud for fear of being called a racist from mad dogs who are no more then fascist.

    Time to get out there and take back what is ours and we do it for all those that paid the ultimate price. The modern libs don’t give to craps about our honored dead or our vets. So we do THANK GOD for both our Blessing which are many and our miseries which are a few but nothing we can’t handle.

      Thank you for visiting http://www.moralmatters.org and for your excellent comment! Please do continue to visit this site and give us your thoughts again!

    2. Jack –

      Thank you for your heart-felt comment and for taking the time to visit http://www.moralmatters.org !

      I share your angst, although I cannot possibly step in your particular shoes. I agree with you about (many) of those who voted for Obama, in that they have shown themselves traitors to this dear country of ours. They had 4 years to witness what he has already done to it; yet, they chose to go ahead again and vote him another 4 years! Personally, I agree with many that the 2008 voter fraud pushed Obama over the top to win. But, that is for another blog posting, of which I intend to cover.

    1. Sally –

      Thank you for reblogging this http://www.moralmatters.org posting!

  2. Gov. Romney conceded in two hours. Not even a whimper of complaint about the massive voter and voting machine fraud. One PA precinct had 9 registered voters but listed 900 Obama votes!!! He spent a billion dollars on the campaign and threw all away without so much as a frown.

    This does not pass the smell test, Nathan. Dems concentrated their fraud crimes in four states and that tipped the election. Its just that simple.

    The national election was a Crime Scene as my poster indicated.

      Thank you for visiting http://www.moralmatters.org and for your straight-forward, so true comment! Your comment strongly suggests that Mitt Romney and the Republican Party did not really desire to win the presidency; else they would have contested the fraud. And, I don’t think it was lack of money or ready and willing lawyers on their part.

      Furthermore, I would even go so far to say that the Republican leaders such as the RNC chair, Karl Rove, etc. are either so inept; or, they are putting on a good show with the full (behind the scenes intent) to have their hand-picked GOP candidate take a fall, just as a prize boxers have been known to do so, in the ring.

      The more I think of the wimpy Republican Party and their absence of fighting for a fair election – and, not contesting this one; the more I am persuaded not to vote for the next GOP presidential nominee. I’m for an emerging strong 3rd party on the national scale. Start out at the top and then filter down to the state and county levels; and damn the usual status quo GOP country club criticism torpedoes!

    Thanks for re-blogging my article http://pepperhawkfarm.wordpress.com/2012/11/23/recount-the-vote/ on your site. I hope the more people see it the more will sign up for the recount.

    Although I was extremely upset with the election and how things turned out, I’m not going to be negative on here. After I collapsed into total exhaustion and my doc told me to go home and stay in bed, sleep, rest, and don’t watch the news since I’m a political junkie.

    I decided it was time for my husband and I to give thanks for what little we have and try to start living our lives everyday for having one another, our two dogs, one cat and a beautiful place to live where we can see the Appalachians and we live on a huge farm (to us) it’s 210 acres where we have the permission of the owner ( a friend of mine) to roam all over it and enjoy all the beauty God created.

    We are avoiding the news as much as we can. We are finding ourselves being much happier and we actually are laughing again.

    There is really nothing we can do now about our beloved country but hope that God will help us in some way to get our Republic back.

      Thank you for your wonderful comment. What you say is so true. This whole election and its disappointing results have been much too exhausting! I almost envy you, having such a nice rural environment with which to live!

        Hi Nathan,

        Well, I’m not giving up politics altogether. Mainly I don’t have Fox on all day and that helps to NOT hear the voice of the Messiah. How about coming over to my place. I have several petitions to sign.



        I sign all petitions like this because I feel as if everybody said I’m not bothering to sign them, we won’t ever get anywhere. Now it might turn out not enough People will sign. That is a true disappointment. The People need to speak up.

        Right now, we feel so thankful to have this farm to live on far away from cities where the anarchy is going to start once food becomes hard to get. And we so enjoy living here. It’s a great community of about 3000 people. We don’t have traffic jams either. Our dogs love to run here.

        Thank you for your nice comment. I already go to the site you linked.

          Thank you for the follow-up reply and for the invitation to visit and sign the petitions. I’ll figure on it a little later as I’m sharing my latest moralmatters.org article:
