God's judgment on the U.S.

The head of a Messianic Jewish ministry believes a victory for Obama in November would be a sign that the United States is under God's judgment.

Markell, Jan (Olive Tree Ministries)The Democratic Party sparked a public relations nightmare at its convention last week when it eliminated references to God and to Jerusalem as Israel's capital from its official platform. Even though convention leaders put both references back in, it was apparent by the voice votes taken three times that many, if not most, of the Democratic delegates wanted to keep God out of the equation.

Jan Markell, founder and director of Olive Tree Ministries, says the Democratic Party is "corrupt" and morally "bankrupt."

"I find it difficult to believe honestly that God would reward a political party that not only denies Him three times, but also just so seriously turns their back on Israel," she offers. "So, this party is a corrupt, bankrupt party."

With that in mind, Markell suggests an Obama victory means only one thing.

"If God rewards them with a victory, then I have to believe it's a further judgment on us, because I can't imagine God being on the side of this kind of darkness," she says. "I just can't!"

The Olive Tree Ministries founder adds that she trembles at the thought of God's judgment on the nation.
