The Best Measurement of the Impact of the Election?

Political and news websites have possibly over-looked the best source for determining the true impact of the Obama election.

According to the Click here: The Rapture Index Obama's election hasn't even merited an update!  On November 3, the index moved up one point, from 158 (the low for the year) to 159.  The high for the year is 170.

Not much of a mandate/landslide for Obama if the Rapture index isn't even updated.

My reflections on the election, for what it is worth:

I am happy to see a black elected as president, although I would disagree with him on most issues. (I hate racisim.)

I think that his policies will cost the tax payers a fortune. I noticed that a lot of the hispanic population voted for him. Although, I feel that his tax increases will severely hurt the small hispanic businesses.

It appears -- at least presently, that many citizens in the U.S. want socialism. Obama's economic policies are very close to European socialism.

I feel that our country is in much, much worse shape than the politicians are telling us.

Obama will be tested by the terrorist's, as they hope to inflict intimidation tactics as a means to jar confidence in the new administration. (Much to the chagrin of Obama, Pelosi and their cronies, which actually feel that you can sit down and reason with the terrorist's -- even though Israel has tried this for years.)

The truth of it all, is that God is in control, and he cares for his people, as evidenced by His providence. If you look around the world, there is indeed, only a small remnant of Christians left. I don't even think that Luther knew how correct he was, when he predicted that Christians would be severely persecuted at some point in time by the "Turks" (Muslims), outside of the church, and the papacy inside of it.

It's going to get interesting!

I told someone this morning that a good thing about this eletion will be the dispy's going nuts and making even bolder than ever predictions of the end that more and more Christians will notice. Then we can better expose their nonsense and get their theological views out the door that much quicker.

You just wait -- "A pinch of incense, purely ceremonial you understand, burned to the genius of The One."

lol. Where do you find this stuff?

I wonder if there's a margin of error...

This came from our pastor of missions at the Wesleyan church I unfortunately attend:

"How does the Church witness to Christ in the world? First and foremost by giving visibility to Jesus' love for the poor and the weak. In a world so hungry for healing, forgiveness, reconciliation, and most of all unconditional love, the Church must alleviate that hunger through its ministry. Wherever we feed the hungry, clothe the naked, visit the lonely, listen to those who are rejected, and bring unity and peace to those who are divided, we proclaim the living Christ, whether we speak about him or not."

"It is important that whatever we do and wherever we go, we remain in the Name of Jesus, who sent us. Outside his Name our ministry will lose its divine energy."

The last sentence in the first paragraph ("whether we speak about him or not") is very discouraging. It seems like that would be the first thing we would speak about.

Anyone's thoughts???

I wonder if readers of this blog think Obama will really make more of a mess of things than Bush did. I am a lifelong republican, and I am so tired of misguided wars, massive spending, and cynical invasions to personal freedoms. If Clinton had done these things we would had howled about this leftist administration. I am just praying for the health and longevity of the justices of the Supreme Court. Otherwise, we may have a chance for some good things with Obama. Maybe the Rapture Index people agree.

it is interesting on this side of the Big Ditch-the Pacific-to trawl the internet and see the reactions to Obama's win. AntiChrist is one category he is being placed in. I sit here and think,what are they complaining about,we have here in Australia a Labour Government ( equal to democrats),whose leader is supposedly a Christian.
I believe that although the Labour Prime minister stated his support for traditional marriage,that it could change,if he wins the federal election of 2010. However he did apologise for all the wrongs perpetuated upon Australian Indigenous people in relation to removing a generation of their children and placing them into foster care.A policy supported by Labour and Liberal/National party governments until the late twentieth century
The State Government of my homestate Victoria,is pernicious-it is Labour-bringing in Abortions up to 24 weeks: if doctors refuse to undertake an abortion then they are mandated to refer patients seeking terminations onto those who will. This has huge ramifications for catholic as well as Lutheran doctors.There is also Invitro fertilization access for Lesbians,that has already being enacted as well so we are already at what many conservatives in America fear.
.I do not hear the pounding of the hooves of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse,yet,but I am mindful of the words of Jefferson " i tremble for my country when I remember that God is Just"

The fact that the Rapture Index hasn't been updated since Nov 3 may mean that the Rapture has occurred since then and we're all left behind!!

I have heard several end times comment and think they are forgetting that God is in charge not the President Obama of the United States. They forget that many Jews well come to the saving grace of Christ before the end is to come. It seems that we forget to focus on our Bible {God's Word} and focus on the News. God was in charge before the election, God was in charge the day of the election and yes God, is still in charge and has a plan which we may not understand or see. That is why we are told to trust in the Lord with all thy Heart.

Maybe this is a wake up call for the Republican party and get them to figure something out, so we can get better candiates. I for one am tired of voting for the lesser of the too evil's when we vote for President's.
