On Tuesday at 12pm American time, 19hrs Zambian time, America will have its first ever Black President.
Has he made done us proud or what?!
Its a dream that men and women in America thought would remain a dream. Those black Americans who suffered at the hand of all who hated their skin colour, all those who sacrificed died in the fight for equality, would be moved to tears to see what the whole world will see tomorrow.
Every television set and radio will be turned on, all to make it possible for people to exprience that momentus occassion live. Every channel, every station whether radio or tv, will tune in, all programming will be halted, as Obama becomes the first ever black president of America. I for one will be glued to the tv tomorrow evening!
Who wouldn't want to be Obama? Who wouldn't want to be Obama's mother or father? I mean, everyone loves him. You can't help but be proud of him. He has won the hearts of all blacks and all races for that matter! He is going to be the most powerful and beloved man in this world tomorrow.
Obama's name will go down in history, people will be singing his praises long after he is gone. I ask again, who wouldn't want to be Obama? Every kid from now on will say,"I want to grow up to be like Barack Obama!"
I, for one, wouldn't want to be Obama.
Like so many great men of history, like so many super stars and soccer legends, musicians, actors, nobel prize winners etc, Obama does not know God. I want to tell you right now that nothing...Nothing...NOTHING comes close to greatness of knowing God! Look at this song written by Mac Powell:
I've heard all the storiesI've seen all the signsWitnessed all the gloriesTasted all that's fine
Nothing Compares to the greatness of knowing you Lord. Oh no,Nothing compares to the greatness of Knowing you Lord, oh
I see all the peopleWasting all their timeBuilding up their richesFor a life that's fine
But Nothing Compares to the greatness of knowing you Lord. Oh
no,Nothing compares to the greatness of Knowing you Lord, oh
And i find myself just living for todayCuz i don't know what tomorrow's gonna bringSo no matter if i rise or fall,i'll never be alone Oh no...
Nothing Compares to the greatness of knowing you Lord. Oh
All the riches, honour, pomp, wealth, popularity, fame and fortune, can never surpass the greatness of knowing God!
Keep your money, keep your fame, I'm staying with my God and father in heaven thankyou very much!
Obama should be pitied, despite his achievements, despite his success, his end is going to be dreadful. I don't hate him, if anything...he has made me, like so many others, proud to be black. He has inspired so many young black men and women that they can be anything they want to be, he has destroyed whatever was left of the notion that blacks are good for nothing. He has certainly done alot of good but I pity him none the less.
I'd rather be here, in a little third world country in Southern Africa where poverty is all around, where one has to do mathermatics to walk from point A to point B just because the roads are all wet and muddy, I'd rather go through all that and much more if it means knowing my Lord. Not because I get a free ticket to heaven for knowing him, not because he has blessed me so much but because he has given me fulfilment, peace and joy and above all because he has chosen to forgive and love me despite me.
Don't envy Obama if it is not for his spiritual success. All the movie stars who enjoy fame and fortune, the Christiano Ronaldos, Dannys, Obamas and Beyonces and all those, wouldn't know fulfilment if it slapped them in the face because they don't know what it means to know God.
Ofcourse, God calls all men and women to himself in repentance and faith-even Obama. All hope is not lost but until then,
On Tuesday, don't see, President Obama, see Poor Obama.
(I could be in trouble with the Secret Service or FBI or CIA or LAPD for this so incase this is the last time you hear from me, thanks for visiting my blog!)
