Following weeks of speculation as to what role the former first lady would play in the Obama administration, the President-Elect Obama has nominated his former rival, Hillary Clinton, to be the next Secretary of State. At a news conference in Chicago, Mr. Obama also announced the nominees for other key national security positions which included the present Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates, to stay in the Obama administration and retired general James Jones as the National Security Advisor.
Mr. Obama said that the time has come for a new dawn of American leadership to overcome the challenges of the 21st century.
Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
The hand picked leaders of the next US administration led by President-Elect Obama, will make decisions that will set the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
The body politic of America, in the last national election, selected Barack Obama to lead the United States into the future at least for the next four years. The President-Elect has selected many of the members of his administration that will help him lead America as the superpower in our world today.
There are some new faces in the next administration but you will notice a number of familiar faces as well. The key positions of Secretary of State to be filled by Hillary Clinton and Secretary of Defense with Robert Gates being held over from the Bush administration, will assist the president in making decisions that will set the world stage for the scenario that can be found in Bible prophecy.
Remember, God set in motion human government (Genesis 9:6). Romans 13:1 says that those who are in leadership in human government are placed there by God. Revelation 17:17 also reveals to us the principle that God uses world leaders to set the stage on this Earth today so that His will might be done. God's word does reveal a prophetic scenario for the end times that will come to pass on this Earth seemingly in the very near future.
The new Obama administration will indeed be used by the Lord to bring about the fulfillment of Bible prophecy.
