Sting: Obama is ‘sent from God’
Pop singer: ‘We are here to evolve as 1 family, and we can’t be separate anymore’

British recording artist Sting says President Obama could be the answer to the world’s problems – the divine answer.

“In many ways, he’s sent from God, because the world’s a mess,” he said in a new interview with the Associated Press.

The comments from The Police’s lead singer, whose real name is Gordon Sumner, are just the latest in a long series of statements suggesting Obama’s connection to the supernatural.

WND previously reported when an artist who planned to unveil a portrait of Obama in a Christ-like pose with a crown of thornsupon his brow canceled the event due to “overwhelming public outrage.”

(Story continues below)

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan also was clear in a nearly religious adoration of Obama. As WND reported, Farrakhan declared last year that when Obama talks, “the Messiah is absolutely speaking.”

Farrakhan pointed out that the man Nation of Islam followers refer to as “the Saviour,” Fard Muhammad, had a black father and a white mother, just as Obama did.Addressing a large crowd behind a podium with a Nation of Islam Saviours’ Day 2008 sign, Farrakhan proclaimed, “You are the instruments that God is going to use to bring about universal change, and that is why Barack has captured the youth. And he has involved young people in a political process that they didn’t care anything about. That’s a sign. When the Messiah speaks, the youth will hear, and the Messiah is absolutely speaking.”

“A black man with a white mother became a saviour to us,” he said. “A black man with a white mother could turn out to be one who can lift America from her fall.”

WND also previously reported a website called “Is Barack Obama the Messiah?”capturing the wave of euphoria that followed the Democratic senator’s remarkable rise.

The site was topped by an Obama quote strategically ripped from a Jan. 7 speech at Dartmouth College just before the New Hampshire Primary in which he told students, “A light will shine through that window, a beam of light will come down upon you, you will experience an epiphany, and you will suddenly realize that you must go to the polls and vote” for Obama.

The site includes this:


Sting said in the AP interview he has spent time with Obama and described the president as “very genuine, very present, clearly supersmart, and exactly what we need in the world.

“I can’t think of anyone better qualified because of his background, his education, particularly in regard to Islam,” he told the news agency.

The 58-year-old said, “My hope is that we can start talking about real issues and not caring about whether God cares about your hemline or your color. We are here to evolve as one family, and we can’t be separate anymore.”

Just a note…

Filed under: Uncategorized — Debs @ 1:31 pm

I wanted to let everyone know I have taken out the “threaded comments”.  Yes Bernard, I do listen to you..  🙂  And also, the newest comments are at the bottom of the thread, oldest at top.  Hopefully this will make it easier to track.  Remember to write in who you are responding to, thanks! OK, on to respond to some of what has gone on today… love you guys!

Oops… one more note.  My last blog was something I am struggling with that I decided to share.  While I intend to respond to you guys, and work through this (yes, it really got to me) I will not allow it to become a people bashing session.  My blog got there once before, and under no circumstance will I allow it again.  I am the queen of feisty, I understand that, but, it is the goodness of God that brings people to repentance.  That will be lived out here.  Thanks!

Just throwing this out there…

Filed under: Uncategorized — Debs @ 8:23 am

Ya know, recently, I came across a situation that I’m really struggling with.  I’m ok with people who profess Christ, and have differences in theological understanding.  We’re suppose to reason together, and I am more than willing to listen, and dig.   I am great with Atheist/Agnostics that ask questions and throw stuff out there we have some great discussion… and they are real.

BUT, when someone misrepresents their position, especially in this forum, it bothers me.  It is hard to get to know people through a blog, most of the people I have met from here, are true to how they really are, a couple not so much.  It’s too easy to portray yourself as something else I suppose, the person you want to be?  Hopefully those who really know me will tell you that I am just as big a nut in person as I am online.  But fake bothers me.

Recently someone who I thought was a believer, for the last couple of years now, said they did not follow Christ.  I’m feeling a bit betrayed I guess because I was led to believe, by them, that they were.  They spoke often about how we should be with the Holy Spirit, and what the Bible says, and basically represented God.  They spoke with the authority that only can and should come from a believer who has a relationship and knows the Living God.  I’ve watched him even come down on some of my friends when they supposedly weren’t in line with the Holy Spirit or what the Word  says… grrrrrr

If you’re here… please be real.  I will try my best to do the same.  I’m not here to judge, and really the only way we can really help eachother in this journey, is if we are real about ourselves.  I don’t need to know all your junk, and I won’t share all of mine.  But please don’t pretend to be something you are not.  God is very faithful in exposing the phony, and it does hurt other people when that happens.  I can take anything but a lie.  *****Stepping off soap box*****

The best….

Filed under: Uncategorized — Debs @ 6:15 pm

…statement I have heard so far in the “if abortion is not ok, then why is the death penalty” debate…

“The first is slaying the innocent, the second is the consequence of being guilty.”  Well said…

Dan pointed out that my statement above probably is not a valid question, which I couldn’t figure out where he got the statement, until I read my own blog… 🙄   nice huh?   That should have read something like “if abortion is ok, then why isn’t the Death Penalty” debate … meaning, the same people who are up in arms over the Death Penalty, seem to have no problem with abortion.  People are way more worried about a possible mistake of one innocent life, than the 3700 that were killed today through abortion, both of which I believe are unacceptable.  Make sense?  AND I’m going to leave my mistake for all the world to see because I never claimed to be perfect, and now ya’ll have the proof…

Ephesians 3 – Blogged Bible Study

Filed under: Uncategorized — Debs @ 6:36 pm

Ephesians 3:8-9 “Although I am less than the least of all the Lord’s people, this grace was given to me: to preach to the Gentiles the boundless riches of Christ and to make plain to everyone the administration of this mystery, which for ages past was kept hidden in God, who created all things.”

It seems to be a continuing trend nowadays that knowledge is power.  For us as believers, knowledge means obligation.  We know as believers something that not everyone knows.  We are not some kind of club that has a mystery to hide, nor are we to use it in some kind of advantage over other people, Paul had the compulsion to share good news.

The word preach doesn’t mean to harangue and brow-beat.  It means to “announce good news.”   The other word that paul uses is “photizo” or to “make plain” to everyone….

I don’t read anywhere where when Paul preached it became some kind of teeth grinding process… it was a privilege and by God’s grace.   God had given something to Paul, now he was to give it to others.  What he gave was inexpressible, indescribable, and in exhaustible.  Our motive should be to enrich others, by presenting God’s Word to them, not impoverish them.

Paul described it perfectly in Ephesians 1:13 “When you believed, you were marked in Him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance, until the redemption of those who are God’s possession – to the praise of His glory.” It is accepting, once God has drawn, and the Holy Spirit has regenerated our spirit by His, this gift of eternity with Him.  It’s not about our subjective decision, but realizing that God has acted.

So, not feeling very adequate for such a job?  Wonderful!!!!   That’s the first qualification.  It is often that our greatest weakness becomes God’s greatest strength through us.  There wasn’t one trace of false humility when Paul said that he was the least of all of God’s people, because he was “once a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent man”  (1 Timothy 1:13, and 1 Corinthians 15:9)  Every one of us need to realize that our sin, doubt and weakness disqualify us, but by God’s grace, given to us, we become more than qualified.

Too far Gone….

Filed under: Uncategorized — Debs @ 5:50 pm

When there is a situation that can’t seemed to be turned around, that’s usually what you hear.  They’re too far gone.  I say, maybe on human terms, but with my God, all things are possible.  In fact I will go so far to say, that is how God usually prefers things, situations that seem impossible, people who are too far gone.  Hopeless people, the ones that are beyond human reasoning, seemingly unable to make a change, then God steps in and does His best work.  Look at Moses.

There were pretty much three different periods in his life, each that lasted about 40 years.  The first he was born and educated in Egypt, raised a leader, one of society’s elite.  Well off, very  eligible bachelor and life was good.  Didn’t seem like there was anything that could derail him and his progress upward in life.  Then, it all changed, one thing, one event changed it all.  He committed murder and was exiled from Egypt, the beginning of his next 40 years.

Great, wandering the desert with strange people, who were not his own, and herding sheep.  Animal hair was worn, not fabric, the sun burnt him, and he was in charge of sheep.  His education seemed to be pointless, and his leadership was wasted on the sheep… for… fourty…. years.  He was too far gone… thirty two years into herding sheep and Mo must have considered that he was in a dead-end situation in a go-nowhere job.  Nothing on earth could change his situation… this was it for him.

Until he had a chat with a burning bush…. probably thought the sun had burned a whole in his brain, but through this bush God asked something great of him, to lead the kids out of Egypt.  Mo didn’t want to.  I don’t think it was because he was being disobedient, but because he thought his situation was too far gone.  All he knew now was how to lead some sheep, he was too far gone for God to use him, or so he thought.  Perfect timing and circumstance for God.  He wasn’t asking Mo to be some kind of political agent, and He knew exactly what He was doing.  God had just spent 40 years undoing what Mo had become in Egypt.  It wasn’t Mo’s sheep herding that needed undone, it was his arrogance and pride.

That’s what God has done and is doing in me recently.  He is undoing me so that HE can work through me in the future.  He is breaking me into being all that He has created me to be.  Do you know someone who seems hopeless?  In their life, their walk, their belief system?  Let God do the work, if it’s you, still, let God do the work.  Then, be ready to be used by God once you’ve been undone.  It really is a good place to be.

Luke 18:27 “Jesus replied, ‘what is impossible with men, is possible with God.”  It really is His show.
