    I realize that this report of prophesy and how it was delivered to McCain and Palin will generate tons of negative scrutiny, but, what do I have to lose! I received this from a source that is extremely credible, and though I was unable to verify it on Snopes, I felt it was important enough to get our the word to true believers, and ask them to ramp up their prayers for McCain and Palin. This word from God to the candidates [if it is true] is as exciting and fresh, and gives all of us something to pray extra hard for.

    I don't want to step on any toes with this, but, I find it incredible how God used this pastor and people in the crowd to get him to the candidates. Should this turn out to be verified through Snopes [or other sites], than the miracle of its origin and the Hand of God on it will be forever remembered.

    Shalom,

    From~ Pastor Mark Arnold ( Ohio )

    Dear Friend::1_grouphug:

    This past Tuesday, the McCain / Palin Bus came through a little town called, Lebanon , Ohio . The LORD allowed me to go to the Rally giving them a message that He wanted me to personally deliver.

    Sunday Night - a burden hit me that would only shake me to my knees - I prayed and wept for our Nation. Never has my heart been so broken before God. I literally interceded for these wonderful people who do not deserve all the hate against them. . . .

    Monday and into Monday Night - the burden of prayer was so heavy that I was literally shaking and could not stop weeping. ( I didn't know that they were coming to Ohio .) I prayed and walked and wept and walked. . . . on and on.

    Tuesday at 2:00 A.M. - God spoke these words to me - 'Go turn the Radio on!' Immediately the Reporter's Words were - 'McCain & Palin Bus to be in Lebanon later this morning for a 10:00 A.M. Rally!'

    Immediately on hearing that news, I heard God again...

    God said, 'You are to go. You will meet them and give them a message for Me!'

    . . . . .I didn't stop praying until I drove over to the town and parked the car. The News would later report they were expecting 5,000 people and the actual head-count of those who had been scanned was more than 10,000 people.

    I simply obeyed...and God actually told me where to stand, who to talk to...and when to be on the move. . . . . and even those standing beside you may just be an Angel.

    I struck up a conversation with an agent on the ground - he simply said, 'I can't allow you to stand here!' Here is where the bus was going to actual pull up . They had to make a much larger perimeter so the entire area was now being moved back several blocks. . . . He told me to go through the metal detector zone and just watch from the back. So, that's what I did.

    Looking over the shoulders and backs and heads of all those people...I knew it would take a miracle for what GOD told me to do.

    As I was standing there, two Boy Scouts came running up my back...literally, they almost knocked me to the ground because they were running so fast behind me.... . Their Scout Leader and several smaller boys were behind them...but as the first two were trying to push through the crowd, saying they were late...the smaller scouts were left in their dust. The Scout Leader who was with a McCain Rep from the State grabbed me and told me to bring the other Scouts up front as they continued to push through.

    As the Rep was shouting back at me......the people parted just like God parted the Red Sea.! When I got there I was fifteen feet from the podium. GOD said, 'Stand here, and don't move from this spot.'

    Within five minutes...the bus pulled up and around the other side McCain, Sarah Palin and her husband Todd stepped up and the speeches took off. I was where God placed me...and even Sarah Palin and Todd were standing on my side of the stage. I made eye contact, I gave them thumbs up gestures...and I knew they were just happy to see me standing there. Ha Ha

    . . . . .A little lady who stood by me, reached up and told the Rep that they had promised a picture with her because she was the one who had lost a son in Iraq , recently. The Rep confirmed she would get a picture with them and they would talk to her. When McCain came to hug her... he immediately shook my hand and following his moment with her, I shook his hand . . . . I said, 'God wants you to know that I'm praying for you, Sir!' He thanked me and kept smiling. I repeated that phrase to him five times! He grabbed my hands and looked right into my eyes and said, 'I won't make it without prayer. Sir, Thank You for praying for me, and don't let one day go by that you don't pray for me. I need all the prayers that I can get. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!'

    As he moved to my right, Sarah Palin, came over to my left side...standing over the crowd and then looking at the little lady who had lost the son. . . . Sarah came and got on her hands and knees on that side of the stage and hugged that little Mom, telling her, '...it was not in vain.. . . . . .

    It was at this moment Sarah Palin, reached out for me to help her up and as I was assisting her to stand I was now face to face with her and GOD said,'Open up your Mouth and I will fill it.'

    Here is what came out...

    'God wants you to know that you are a present day Esther!'

    [She immediately began to cry]!

    'God wants to tell you that you are Chosen for such a time as this!' 'You are called, and chosen to be a leader.' 'Don't lose heart and don't fear man.' 'The news and nay-sayers and criticizers are going to be very hateful toward you... and in the days ahead they are going to turn up the heat...but do not fear.'

    'You are a present day Esther.' You are an Esther. You are an Esther! 'Keep your eyes on GOD and know that He has chosen you to Reign!' 'Stay strong...be strong...don't tire. Don't be weary in well-doing. Be strong.'

    Her husband Todd came over and I told him what I told her. He began to cry. I emphasized the fact that he was to guard her at this time...and know that '...she is GOD-CALLED and GOD-ANOINTED.' ...this is a GOD-THING and your wife is a Present day Esther...she is for God to use at this time...She is an Esther...she is an Esther...she is an Esther.' You will be hated...but stand strong...GOD has called both of you to stand!' 'We are praying and I am praying for you...!'

    At this moment, McCain came right to where I was finishing talking to Todd and I told Mr. McCain exactly what I told to Sarah and Todd Palin.

    'Mr. McCain, .they are called of God and she is an Esther.' 'Don't lose hope and don't lose heart.' We are praying for all of you!'

    He shook my hand and with a deep look of understanding what I had just said, he said, 'Thank you for your prayers and support...I really do mean that!' And he turned and shook more hands...and I watched them as they went through the crowd.

    When I got to my car I sat there for quite a long time...knowing the GOD of the Universe had just used me to deliver a message confirming to Sarah and Todd to realize they are truly chosen vessels of God.

    I wept. I have not stopped praying and crying. My heart is full knowing they had to have all the staging and all the hype and all the crowd...but the GOD of Heaven and Earth...wanted to give them a Divine-God-Appointment!


    To God be all the GLORY and HONOR. Do you want to know if I believe God can speak. Yes...Absolutely!

    Burdened for all of our Leaders!

    Pastor Mark Arnold ( Ohio )

    I wish we'd look at political candidates as just that and not someone out of the Bible. My faith is independent of whether Obama or McCain win an election in the United States. Is yours?

    What king is she approaching to plead for her people? George Bush? It's a little late for that.

    You don't think God uses people today to accomplish His purposes in this earth?

    True. However, I wouldn't be surprised if some conservatives would happily throw out the U.S. constitution if Sarah Palin could be made queen of the United States for life.

    Actually, that's a lie, Ken. Just like my super bowl comment. Mine may have more truth in it, but it's basically hyperbole, just like yours.

    I didn't include you among those conservatives, Bro. Curtis. You have more sense than most conservatives, way more sense. :thumbs:

    Something about this smells fishy. He's supposed to be the pastor of this church...
    http://www.covenantchristianchurch.us/

    ...yet he isn't.

    edited...a blog states this is his church, yet the blog Ladyeagle gave lists a different church. I'm utterly confused...

    This is a rather disturbing thread.
    The fact that the Book of the Bible cited is the one that makes no mention of God is not without a sense of irony.........

    Maybe he is no longer at that church and the blogs haven't caught up yet. I don't think it smells fishy.

    I think the VP's are now secondary

    I think the VP stakes and importance is now over, it is all about John McCain.

    It is all about the next debate and whether John McCain can win it , everything else Sarah Palin does will be diminished if John McCain does not step up and win this debate.

    I can talk about Sarah and her wacky religious upbringing, her feminist leanings, her secessionist husband , etc,etc, it does not matter anymore because McCain has to win this, and Sarah is tightly controlled by McCain(talk about sexist). She made it into the club at her debate with the George W. Bush style of low expectations.

    When Sarah goes after Obama , he is doing the correct thing ,he goes after McCain and leaves her out of it.

    so if people want to have a good feeling about Sarah , go for it, I think the Sarah fans on this board wish and hope she will make a run in 2012 and even now they
    wish she was at the top of the ticket.

    but Obama supporters should follow the Obama lead and scrutinize McCain for the next 30 days.(my advice)

    but Tina Fey and SNL is oh so fun!:laugh:

    Oops! I just realized the polls reflecting the VP debate come out tomorrow, hope I did not speak too soon.:BangHead:

    Prayers to Joe Biden and His Wife Jill for their loss of Jills mother, Joe has such a wonderful family.

    I'm glad he appears to have had a spiritual experience from God. Even if she doesn't become VP, she can be an Esther in Alaska. Whatever role in government she plays, I hope she does it under the guidance of God and his scriptures.

    I believe she will. The whole reason that the liberal rags have attacked her is because she believes in the Bible and prays.

    It appears that spiritual adulation of a candidate is acceptable as long as it is for a conservative?
