America Needs More Prophets than Pundits

The re-election of President Barack Obama shows we need the prophetic voice more than the shrill of the prognosticators.

Dick Morris, Newt Gingrich, and even Charles Krauthammer, the high priest of conservative punditry, along with many others, foretold that Mitt Romney would win by collecting anywhere from 303 to 330 electoral votes.

Following the election, the Romney-leaning forecasters were tap dancing around their failed predictions like a weather reporter who told everybody to go to the beach and failed to see an approaching winter storm.

Balaam's donkey did better.

There's only one thing to say to the mis-prognosticators and the folk who prayed earnestly and fervently for Obama's defeat: Barack Obama is the President of the United States, and he is the chosen of God for that high office in this period of our history.

Obama is not chosen like the Apostles, but chosen like Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon, whose insane capriciousness enlarged the voice of godly prophet Daniel in the midst of a godless culture. Obama is chosen like Cyrus the Persian, a power-worshipper who had no idea he would be the instrument of God to issue a decree that would lead to the restoration of Jerusalem and the Temple.
