Hi friends! For Americans, the reality is impossible to ignore: our country is not the same one we grew up in. Every day we see evidence of that, and I suspect America is not the only place on earth experiencing national transformation. Gone are moral values and Biblical influence reflected in societies around the world.
It should come as no surprise, however, that this was the plan of a former President who told us exactly what he was going to do. Then he set the plan in motion. The influence of an American President is immense, and other world leaders tend to follow their lead. That transformation-minded President was Barrack Obama, and here are exact words from his pre-election speech of October 30, 2008:
“We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”~Quoted in the National Catholic Register, as well as other sites [Emphasis mine]
As you know, he went on to occupy the White House for 8 years and is thought by many to be the puppeteer controlling the current administration. Indeed, evil transformation is happening.
Here is an important question: If you love something or someone, do you want to transform it/them, or do you wish to enhance and refine their greatest attributes? Transformation implies totally changing something into something it’s not. If you supremely love your spouse, there may be little things you wish were different, but fundamentally transforming your spouse seems way over-the-top and not likely if you truly love one another.
Yet, that is what Obama and his minions set out to do in 2008. But, before we load cannons to fire at Democrats, we must be fair. Many Republicans (past and present) either share a similar ambition, or do absolutely nothing to contest the transformation of America we see today. This is not a Republican/Democrat issue, it is a standoff between good and evil. There is plenty of responsibility to go around and no party is innocent.
We are watching elitists and globalists of all political stripes pressing full-court to eliminate borders, eliminate the unwanted, and eliminate law and order. The transformation they desire is one world government, supported by one world religion, functioning on one world currency, all controlled by the elite. They crave power and it seems everything we see today aligns with those desires to transform the world.
These are signs of the last days, but while such plotting is evil, transformation, in and of itself, is not always a bad or evil thing. After all, here is the Apostle Paul’s “transformation message” to us as believers:
12 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.~Romans 12:1-2
Paul also reminded us that we are being transformed into the Lord’s image!
18 But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.~2 Corinthians 3:18
And one more jewel from Paul:
20 For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, 21 who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself.~Philippians 3:20-21
While the world’s elite focus on transforming the world into their image of what it should be, our Heavenly Father is quite content to transform us, through the work of His Son, as we renew our minds, prepared for our glorious transformation, and the transformation of our bodies into the likeness of His!
Friends, what kind of transformation are you experiencing?
