The Bible can be a source of guidance while also being a source of humor and entertainment. If you pick up a Bible and combine this with current news happenings, some funny Bible verses can be found that describe Obama. A good way to get more out of the Bible is to underline what is found to be interesting and look back later to compare it to current events. The following verses just might apply to Obama and our nation today.
May Another Take His Office
During the 2012 election a billboard said to pray for Obama and displayed this Bible verse. Psalms 109:8 says ‘May his days be few; may another take his office!” in the English Standard version of the Bible.
The secret service investigated the billboard and controversy arose from it. No Bible haters were reported to demand it be removed because they were offended, so perhaps God’s word plus the word “pray” can be displayed in public after all. However, channel 5 in San Antonio stated the sign had to be taken down because some Bible lovers said it was misuse of Holy Scripture.
Obama will be known for his repeated statements of saying “If you like your heath care plan you can keep it.” When millions of Americans lost their health care coverage due to his signature Obamacare regulations, he was proven to have a major gift promised not being delivered.
Proverbs 25:14 in the Living Bible Paraphrased says “One who doesn’t give the gift he promised is like a cloud blowing over a desert without dropping any rain.” This funny Bible verse might give a bit of comfort to those who feel Obama put a cloud over our nation with his broken promise.
Hope And Change
In the 2008 election the slogan of the Obama campaign was “Hope and Change.” If you read Jeremiah 29:11 in the English Standard Version of the Bible it says “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
Many people have told me they think Obama is a welfare President, so this translation fits those thoughts about his hope promise. However, if you click here on Jeremiah 29:11 there are 43 English translations to read of this verse to ponder.
Open minded Bible readers know there are many translations that can change the meaning of a Bible verse to fit their desires or even to just find some humor. Perhaps we should remember that God makes promises in the Bible better than Obama or any human leader. With a combination of versatile Bible reading and prayer, only God can give real hope and change.
