**Good morning,  brothers and sisters;  it's always a delight to  see 
the pews  crowded on Sunday morning and so eager to get  into God's 
Word.  Turn with me in your Bibles, if you will, to the  47^th chapter 
of  Genesis, we'll begin our reading at verse 13 and  go through verse  
27.****Brother Ray,  would you stand and read that great passage for  
us?  ....(reading)....****Thank you for  that fine reading, Brother 
Ray... So we see  that economic hard  times fell upon Egypt and the 
people turned  to the government  of Pharaoh to deal with this for them. 
And  Pharaoh nationalized  the grain harvest and placed the grain in 
great  storehouses that he had  built. So the people brought their money 
to  Pharaoh, like a great tax  increase, and gave it all to him 
willingly in  return for grain. And this went on  until their money ran 
out and they were hungry  again.****So when they  went to Pharaoh after 
that, they brought  their livestock  -their cattle, their horses, their 
sheep, and their  donkey - to barter for  grain and verse 17 says that 
only took them  through the end of  that year..****But the famine  
wasn't over was it? So the next year the  people came before  Pharaoh 
and admitted they had nothing left  except their land and  their own 
lives. "There is nothing left in the  sight of my lord but  our bodies 
and our land. Why should we die  before your eyes,  both we and our 
land? Buy us and our land for  food and we with  our land will be 
servants to Pharaoh.." So  they surrendered  their homes, their land, 
and their real estate  to Pharaoh's  government and then sold themselves 
into  slavery to him, in  return for grain.****What can we  learn from 
this, brothers and  sisters?****That turning  to the government instead 
of to God to be our  provider in hard times  only leads to slavery? Yes. 
That the only  reason government  wants to be our provider is to also 
become our  master? Yes.****But look how  that passage ends, brothers 
and sisters! Thus  Israel settled in the  land of Egypt, in the land of 
Goshen.. And they  gained possessions in  it and were fruitful and 
multiplied greatly."  God provided for  His people, just as He always 
has! They didn't end  up giving all  their possessions to government, 
no, it says they  gained possessions!  But I also tell you a great truth 
today and an  ominous one. ****We see the  same thing happening today - 
the government  today wants to  "share the wealth" once again, to take 
it from us  and redistribute it back to us.  It wants to take control of 
healthcare, just as it  has taken control of  education, and ration it 
back to us, and when  government rations it,  then government decides 
who gets it, and how much,  and what kind. And  if we go along with it, 
and do it willingly, then  we will wind up no  differently than the 
people of Egypt did four  thousand years ago - as  slaves to the 
government and as slaves to our  leaders.****What Mr.  Obama's 
government is doing now is no different  from what Pharaoh's  government 
did then and it will end the same. And a  lot of people like to  call 
Mr. Obama a "Messiah," don't they? Is he a  Messiah?  A savior?  Didn't 
the Egyptians say, after Pharaoh made them  his slaves, "You have  saved 
our lives; may it please my lord, we will be  servants to 
Pharaoh"?****Well, I tell  you this - I know the  Messiah; the Messiah 
is a friend of  mine; and Mr. Obama  is no Messiah!  No, brothers and  
sisters, if Mr. Obama  is a character from the Bible, then he is  
Pharaoh.  Bow with me in  prayer, if you will...******Lord, You  alone 
are worthy to be served, and we rely on You,  and You alone. We confess 
that the government is  not our deliverer and never rightly will be. We 
read  in the eighth chapter of 1 Samuel, when Samuel  warned the people 
of what a  ruler would do, where it says "And in that day you  will cry 
out because of  your king, whom you have chosen for yourselves,  but the 
LORD will  not answer you in that day." ****And Lord, we  acknowledge 
that day has  come. We cry out to you because of the ruler that  we have 
chosen for  ourselves as a nation. Lord, we pray for this  nation. We 
pray for revival  and we pray for deliverance from those who would be  
our masters. Give us hearts to seek You and hands  to serve You and 
protect Your  people from the  atrocities of Pharaoh's  government.***

*****In God We  
**You may want  to consider sharing this with  others.***

Liberal ideology and political correctness, infused with
public policy, begets social insanity. - Michael Savage
