Here at the IFB it has been our sincere desire that President Obama and the oppressing secular elites and ruling class of this world would see the ETERNAL big picture and their desperate need for Almighty God’s saving grace, which is found ONLY in the Savior of the world (the Lord Jesus Christ), Who ALONE is KING of kings and LORD of lords of time and ETERNITY (John 3:16-17, Rom. 10:2-4, 1 Tim. 2:1-7).

It is a sound and true reality that President Obama is lawless, at war with our constitution, our Founding Fathers, the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God, despises all that the Bible clearly teaches and all that conservative Bible believing Christian Americans hold dear and sacred.

Truly though, in light of President Obama acting out his fallen godless humanity (Rom. 1:18-32, 3, Jude 1:10), how many believers (who are forgiven transgressors and debtors to the GRACE and MERCY of Almighty God) actually pray for President Obama’s salvation on a daily basis?

It is safe to say not many. We are too consumed in pointing out all his godless acts as watchmen of this nation and ofthe Gospel of Jesus Christ, warning all of that which is being accomplished at his hand; for that is what we as watchmen do but, our Heavenly Father commands us also to pray for those outside of Christ’s saving grace; especially our leaders (Matt. 5:44, Rom. 12:14).

In light of ETERNITY we truly DO NOT wish the RIGHTEOUS Judgment of Almighty God and His ETERNAL prison called the “Lake of Fire” on no man and that ALL (conservative, liberal and progressives) would turn to Almighty God in genuine repentance and call on the Name of the Lord and be saved (Matt. 25:41, Mark 9:48, Luke 3:17, John 3:16-17, Acts 4:12, 16:28-30, Gal.1:4, Rev. 20:11-15)!

Indeed a Great Day of ETERNAL JUDGMENT is coming in which all people, great and small will stand before the Son of God to give a FULL account for ALL of their deeds in the flesh; their rejection and rebellion against the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUSNESS of Almighty God (Matt. 12:36-37, John 3:36, Rom. 10:2-4, Phil. 2:10-11, Gal. 2:16, Rev. 20:11-15). While there is yet time and breath left in President Obama’s nostrils, may he and all human beings (conservative to progressive) who KNOW NOT the Savior of the world) cry out to Him in genuine repentance and with a contrite heart to be delivered from that DAY (Acts 16:28-31, Rom. 2:4, James 5:5, Rev. 19:15-21. 20:11-15)! A few moments of human glory, fame and position in this fallen damned world are not worth ETERNITY’S damnation (Matt. 16:26, Luke 9:23-25, 1 John 2:15-17, Rev. 20:11-15). That is not Almighty God’s will for you as a fallen son of Adam (Rom. 5:12-21).

Almighty God is NOT willing that ANY should perish, but that ALL would come to a saving knowledge of the Savior of the world (John 3:16-17, Rom. 2:42, 1 Tim 2:1-7), and so also do we. Here at the IFB the GLORIOUS GOSPEL (1 Cor. 15:1-4) is at the very heart of every one of our posts; for progressives as well as conservatives who know not the Savior in Spirit and TRUTH(John 4:24, Rom. 10:2-4, 1 Cor. 15:1-4). Our political and spiritual perspective and position is taken from an objective biblical point of view from ETERNAL reality and the PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS demanded by Almighty God for each individual of Adam’s fallen race (Rom. 5:12-21, 10:2-4, James 2:10).

There was a time when we here at the IFB ( as individuals) once walked the course of the world and were dead in our trespasses and sins against the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS ABSOLUTES of Almighty God (1 Cor. 6:9-11, Eph. 1:7, 2:1-12, Titus 3:3-5, Rev. 1:5) It was in Almighty God’s GREAT GRACE and MERCY, in much long-suffering towards us that in the fullness of time we turned to His ETERNAL grace and He saved us from ETERNAL ruin and became children of the King of ETERNITY (Rom. 2:4, 2 Cor. 2:10, Eph. 2:1-12). Oh my dear friends, we at the IFB KNOW forgiveness and we are now debtors to Almighty God’s ETERNAL LOVE to share with ALL, even Presidents, Radio Talk Show hosts and elected officials that Jesus truly saves and is coming again in RIGHTEOUSNESS (Mal 3:1-3, Matt. 25:31-45, 2 Cor. 5:17-21, Rev. 19:11-21)!

It is again are sincere desire that President Obama turn (180 degrees) and come to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ in Spirit and Truth. The Bible’s message of SALVATION is very, very clear to all and one that we need not be offended by. We are just to BELIEVE it, RECEIVE it, REJOICE in it, ENJOY it, and THANK Almighty God for it! It is just that simple my dear friend(Acts 16:28-30, Rom. 10:17, Rev. 22:17)! But… unfortunately the heart and pride of fallen man usually always gets in the way (Prov. 8:13-14, 16:18, 18:12, Matt. 23:37-38, John 5:40, Rev. 9:20-21).

The Bible Teaches:
Romans 5:8 - “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
Sin separates us from God. God’s Peace and Eternal Life are lost because of our sins.
Romans 5:12 - “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned;”
Romans 3:23 - “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”
God has provided the gift of ETERNAL Life. This Life is found in His Son, Jesus Christ.
Romans 6:23 - “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
You can have this Life! This Life is made possible through Jesus Christ.
Romans 5:1 - “Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:”
Romans 1:16 - “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
Romans 5:21 - “That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Romans 10:9 - “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”
Romans 10:13 - “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
Romans 10:10 - “For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”


Dear God, I know that I am a transgressor against Your PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS and need your complete forgiveness to enter SAFELY and PERFECTLY into ETERNITY and into Thy HOLY PRESENCE. I believe with ALL my heart that Jesus Christ died for ALL my TRANSGRESSIONS against You as Your Word cleary states. I now REPENT and PLACE my complete trust in Him as MY Savior and will follow Him as the Lord of my Life.

May it be so!

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

    You of course are correct about praying for Obama’s salvation. Jesus also told us to love our enemies and pray for those who persecute us. So, when the President is our enemy, we still must pray for him. But at the end of the day, despite praying for him and loving him, we still must fight him, if we don’t want him to win. So don’t assume that those who have been outraged at his abuse of power haven’t also prayed for him.

    We also need to be praying for all who are caught up in the many schemes of Satan. God still works in mighty ways. Have you seen the videos on about all the Muslim clerics who have been saved? That tells me the Holy Spirit is busy at work in people’s hearts everywhere. We should always be in prayer for those trapped in false religions. And we should not forget to pray for those in America, who because of their success or affluence don’t think they need God. Over 7 billion people need our prayers. That’s plenty to keep all believers occupied. Let’s do it!
