"RE:  Sonchild--your post, "To Debbie and all-maybe we do not know who Obama is""

Hello, John and Doves,
Sonchild, that certainly is the flipside of judgment.  However, Jesus' blood will ultimately only save those whom the Father has given to the Son.
    [Jesus speaking] " 'No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day.' "  John 6:44
Nevertheless, we are to preach the Good News to "every creature," knowing that it will be either a testimony for them or against them.
Did OBL ever hear the gospel?  Probably.  Did he ever respond appropriately?  Only God knows.
In HaShem,
Mike C.

"To Debbie and all-maybe we do not know who Obama is"

Thanks for your post, Debbie. True, we may not even know who
Obama really is. We know for certain that God has every hair of
his head numbered, knows his name and birthplace, and knows his
heart. We know also that God is not willing that any should perish, and we also know that Jesus shed his blood for Obama the very same as He did for all of us.
I agree that serious and regular prayer is needed for him and for all
in authority so that we can live peaceable lives [II Timothy ch 2]. This
is the will of God concerning every Christian. We are called to
prayer. It's one of our callings. Obedience is better than any sacrifice.
