Jonathan Cahn: At the 2017 Presidential Inaugural Prayer Breakfast, I made the following speech
Has the United States passed the point of no return?
President Obama, with all respect that is due, as you approach the last hour of the presidency, you are shocked by the outcome of the election. And now it appears that your legacy will largely will be undone.
You came to the presidency claiming as a Christian you could not support the ending of marriage as it had been known, and then you did everything in your power to end that very thing. And then you sought to force believers to take part in that very thing you said a believer could not take part in. If one believes that God is real, how can one do such things?
You came to the presidency speaking of tolerance, and yet you showed no tolerance for the lives of the unborn. You zealously fought to defend the carrying out of their murder and expanded it around the world.And, you went further, you sought to force God's people to fund their killing.
President Obama, on the day when marriage as we know it — ordained by God — was with your help struck down in this land, you celebrated by lighting up the White House in the colors of the rainbow. Did you not know that the rainbow does not belong to man or to any movement? The rainbow belongs to God! It is the sacred sign of God's covenant, and the sacred colors of His throne. If you believe that God is real, how could you use the sign of God to celebrate the striking down of the Word of God? If you overturn the edicts of God, should you be surprised that your own edicts will be overturned? And, if you strike down the precepts of God, will not your own precepts be struck down?
You launched accusations against the leader of Israel in a way you have never done to any leader of any enemy nation. You took part in isolating and condemning Israel before the world and advancing a resolution proclaiming Israel had no right to Jerusalem.
If one has ever read the Bible, how can one foster such a thing? Did you miss what the Word of God says concerning Jerusalem? There is only One who has authority over Jerusalem, and it is not the United Nations. It is not the European Union. It is not you! There is only One and His name is the Lord God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the Holy One of Israel.
Long before there was a United Nations, or United States, or any of the nations that cast this vote,the Lord issued His own resolution concerning Jerusalem, and no law, no executive order, no UN vote will ever overturn it. And, concerning that UN resolution, the Almighty has issued His own response — He vetoes it!
Four thousand years ago God made a covenant with Abraham that states whatever you do to Israel shall be done to you. President Obama, you sought to intervene in an election held within the borders of a sovereign nation — Israel. Therefore, should you now be surprised if God intervenes in the election of your own nation? You sought through Israel's elections to nullify the stance and legacy of its leader, Benjamin Netanyahu. So, should you now be surprised if God intervenes now to nullify your own legacy?
Despite how you treated the name of God, the Word of God, and the ways of God, the hand of God; this is the inconvenient truth: God is real, His Word is true, His ways are eternal, His hand is mighty, His kingdom is without end, and the darkness shall not overcome it.
Mr. President, I am here to report to you good news — the God of Israel is alive and well, and His arm is strong to the rising up and casting down of kings and kingdoms, and governments and administrations. If you don't think He can, to paraphrase your own words, "Yes, He can!"
