GRAHAM: GOD MIGHT SMITE OBAMA WITH LIGHTNING
Prez 'arrogantly flaunting sinful behavior in the face of Almighty God'
One of the highest-profile Christian leaders in America, Franklin Graham of Samaritan's Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, is hinting that Barack Obama is deliberately setting himself up in opposition to God.
On his Facebook page Tuesday, Graham, who has kept up a steady stream of comments on the "gay-rights" agenda, brought up the subject again.
He noted Obama's decision to promote homosexuality with colored lights at the White House after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled June 26 the Constitution grants same-sex couples a right to marriage.
"He had the gall to disgrace the White House by lighting it up with the gay pride rainbow colors," Graham wrote. "This is arrogantly flaunting sinful behavior in the face of Almighty God. My advice? He might want to have some extra lightning rods installed on the roof of the White House."
His complete statement: "A lot has changed in three short years! Just three years ago, the president was on record as holding to the biblical definition of marriage. Now he can't say enough about his support for the LGBT agenda and right after the Supreme Court's decision to legalize same-sex marriage, he had the gall to disgrace the White House by lighting it up with the gay pride rainbow colors to celebrate. This is arrogantly flaunting sinful behavior in the face of Almighty God. My advice? He might want to have some extra lightning rods installed on the roof of the White House."
In fact, in one translation of the Bible, Hosea 6:5 cites God saying, â€œThis is why I have used the prophets to cut them down; I have killed them with the words of My mouth. My judgment strikes like lightning.â€
Commenter Laura Hicks-Montgomery said simply, Amen!
But another, Ken Barnett, said Obama "will need more than lightning rods."
Last week, WND reported Graham warned, regarding government endorsements and mandates of homosexuality, that the nation "will not like what's at the end of this rainbow."
Pride goeth before a fall. Supreme Court Justice [Antonin] Scalia used Proverbs 16:18 in his comments regarding the court's disappointing and dangerous ruling about same-sex marriage. Graham wrote at the time, "He rightly called the decision a threat to the American democracy. This is so true. Arrogantly disregarding God's authority always has serious consequences."
Graham has millions following his social media comments and routinely gets hundreds of thousands of likes and tens of thousands of shares for his postings.
Graham previously addressed Obama's precedent-setting advocacy for alternative sexual lifestyles.
The president had the White House lit up in rainbow colors to celebrate the Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage. This is outrageous - a real slap in the face to the millions of Americans who do not support same-sex marriage and whose voice is being ignored."God is the one who gave the rainbow, and it was associated with His judgment. God sent a flood to wipe out the entire world because mankind had become so wicked and violent," he wrote.
One man, Noah, was found righteous and escaped God's judgment with his family. The rainbow was a sign to Noah that God would not use the flood again to judge the world. But one day God is going to judge sin - all sin. Only those who are found righteous will be able to escape His judgement. The righteousness comes through faith, believing on the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ who took our sins and shed His blood on the cross for each and every one.
So, when we see the gay pride rainbow splashed on business advertisements and many people's Facebook pages, may it remind all of us of God's judgment to come. Are you ready? Are your sins forgiven?
When the Supreme Court decision was announced, he wrote, â€œThe court has no authority to change or override God's laws which define marriage as between one man and one woman.â€
He said: With all due respect to the court, it did not define marriage, and therefore is not entitled to re-define it. Long before our government came into existence, marriage was created by the One who created man and woman Almighty God and His decisions are not subject to review or revisions by any manmade court. God is clear about the definition of marriage in His Holy Word: Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh (Genesis 2:24).
I pray God will spare America from His judgment, though, by our actions as a nation, we give Him less and less reason to do so.
