Get Your Spiritual House In Order. Because The Beast Is Coming And You Don’t Want To Be With The Huge Majority That Takes His Mark.

I write this as I hear the report from Fox News that Ohio has just been called for Obama.

Amazingly, and I would suggest incredibly insanely, the American people have decided that the status quo – Barack Obama as president, a Senate that hasn’t bothered to pass a budget in over three years, and a House of Representatives that is even more firmly under Republican control – is the path to a great and glorious future.  Part of me wants to cry, but I dare say the larger part wants to start laughing my dang head off at the sheer idiocy of the American electorate.

As I contemplate a second Obama term, a couple of quotes come to mind:

A journalist named Stephen Laurant had been jailed circa 1935 for questioning Nazism:

I am writing this from cell 24. Outside a new Germany is being created. Many millions are rejoicing. Hitler is promising everyone precisely what they want. I think when they wake to their sobering senses, they will find they have been led by the nose and duped by lies.”

And then one from Jewish doctor Herta Knotwolf:

“So many worship him as their savior, their redeemer from unbearable poverty.  Many are filled with some have worry, but all are united in the words, ‘Now things will change.”

Ah, yes, hope and change.

I wonder how that worked out for old Herta.  Because things very certainly DID change.  I mean, she was certainly spot on about that part, right?

This isn’t about intelligence; it’s about moral intelligence.  In the 1930s when the German people were busy electing the Nazi Party and Adolf Hitler to power, they were the most educated, scientific and literate people on the face of the earth.  Versus the people of the United States, who frankly have never been more stupid in their nation’s entire history.

There simply comes a point in the life of every nation and even every civilization where there is an overwhelming desire to commit suicide and the people give in to that desire.  And those peoples may not have thought that was what they were doing when they made the fatal decisions that resulted in their destruction, but suicide is precisely what they ultimately chose.

And it’s what the United States of America just decided to do.

Our real national debt is now already trillions of dollars beyond the $222 trillion that it was reported as being about three months ago.

Is that $222 trillion number new to you?  Here’s an article for you:

Blink! U.S. Debt Just Grew by $11 Trillion
By Laurence Kotlikoff and Scott Burns Aug 8, 2012 3:30 PM PT

Republicans and Democrats spent last summer battling how best to save $2.1 trillion over the next decade. They are spending this summer battling how best to not save $2.1 trillion over the next decade.

In the course of that year, the U.S. government’s fiscal gap — the true measure of the nation’s indebtedness — rose by $11 trillion.

The fiscal gap is the present value difference between projected future spending and revenue. It captures all government liabilities, whether they are official obligations to service Treasury bonds or unofficial commitments, such as paying for food stamps or buying drones.

Some question whether “official” and “unofficial” spending commitments can be added together. But calling particular obligations “official” doesn’t make them economically more important. Indeed, the government would sooner renege on Chinese holding U.S. Treasuries than on Americans collecting Social Security, especially because the U.S. can print money and service its bonds with watered-down dollars.

For its part, economic theory sees through labels and views a country’s official debt for what it is — a linguistic construct devoid of real economic content. In contrast, the fiscal gap is theoretically well-defined and invariant to the choice of labels. Each labeling choice changes the mix of obligations between official and unofficial, but leaves the total unchanged.

Dangerous Growth

The U.S. fiscal gap, calculated (by us) using theCongressional Budget Office’s realistic long-term budget forecast — the Alternative Fiscal Scenario — is now $222 trillion. Last year, it was $211 trillion. The $11 trillion difference — this year’s true federal deficit — is 10 times larger than the official deficit and roughly as large as the entire stock of official debt in public hands.

This fantastic and dangerous growth in the fiscal gap is not new. In 2003 and 2004, the economists Alan Auerbach and William Gale extended the CBO’s short-term forecast and measured fiscal gaps of $60 trillion and $86 trillion, respectively. In 2007, the first year the CBO produced the Alternative Fiscal Scenario, the gap, by our reckoning, stood at $175 trillion. By 2009, when the CBO began reporting the AFS annually, the gap was $184 trillion. In 2010, it was $202 trillion, followed by $211 trillion in 2011 and $222 trillion in 2012.

So, based on that actual debt increasing by $11 trillion in one year and three full months passing since the announcement of said debt, that figure is now $222 trillion plus an additional $2.75 trillion.  So please don’t stare at the zeros as they whiz by or your eyeballs will pop out and it is no easy job trying to stick them back into your skull.

And with an Obama who has increased the “official” national debt by sixty percent in only four years, along with a Democrat Senate that hasn’t bothered to pass a budget in well over three years (it’s been 1,259 days since Harry Reid’s Senate passed a budget back on April 23 of 2009), and a Republican-controlled House that has already shown they will not abandon their agenda or their constituents, well, that’s your team who will take on looming disaster.

We just elected our own destruction.  Taxmaggedom is an example of this dilemma we just voted to perpetuate: they’ll probably be able to kick the can of economic calamity down the road for another few months, but that calamity will continue to hang over our heads like a shrapnel-loaded bomb waiting to blow up in our national face.

I know many of you love suspense, but what’s going to happen is “disaster” will be wearing Harlem Globetrotter uniforms and coming from every direction while Team Obama will be dressed in Washington Generals uniforms.  And by the end of the game, Disaster will have made America look incredibly stupid.

We’re a hopelessly fractured nation under Obama.  And just to try to describe that in election night terms, Obama will be the first president in history to be reelected by a smaller electoral college majority than he was elected with when he first became president, and as I write this Obama is actually over two-hundred thousand votes behind in the popular vote.  Not that it will matter to Obama, who will view his victory as a mandate.

Click here if you would like to see what a “mandate” actually looks like.

And that division and bitterness and inability to solve any of our crises – which was worse than it has EVER been these last four years under Obama – will get worse.  I promise you.  And that is because we, like the locusts, have no leader; rather, we have a demagogue who masquerades as a leader.  He is capable only of blaming others while refusing to accept any responsibility for pretty much anything.  We’re going to be paying dearly for that.

I don’t know how to tell you this, America.  You deserve to suffer for your stupidity.  And you’re going to get what you deserve.  Because this is still God damn America, full speed ahead to hell.

By the time Barack Hussein Obama leaves office in 2016, America will be the proverbial headless chicken.  We might still be technically on our feet, but we’re going to be dead.  Unless you’re reaching into your pocket as we speak to pay that $224.75 trillion our country owes, that is.  Anyone?  Is that crickets I hear?

We are a nation that cannot even POSSIBLY begin to come together to solve our problems.  And the reelection of the most partisan and most divisive president to ever lead America is all you need to know to realize that the United States of America will NEVER be able to come together.  Until Antichrist comes along to sweep the same fools off their feet who were swept off their feet by Obama.

How does Antichrist come to power?  Revelation chapter six describes the scenario: a complete global economic collapse, wars on top of wars as nation and ethnic group fight nation and ethnic group to the death over resources and grudges, famine and mass death will characterize the world that Antichrist will ride to save on his white horse.

I look at that $224.75 trillion debt, I look at a European failed experiment in socialism that is teetering on the brink of collapse, and I feel in my gut that Revelation 6 isn’t very far away from the real world.

Antichrist will literally be worshiped by the entire world.  Why?  Because he will appear to have all the answers, and people will look at what the world had been like before the beast came along to save them, and behold the vision that the Antichrist shows them, and literally the entire world will belong to this coming tyrant.

The interesting thing is that absolutely everything we know about this coming Antichrist screams “big government.”  The Antichrist will be the ultimate big government socialist.  Period.   If you are a typical liberal who admires the United Nations, well, your future object of worship will literally BE the United Nations.  The entire planet will rally behind this man.  If you think that the government ought to have a stronger hand in the economy, worry no more: because the government of the Antichrist will have complete control over anything that has anything whatsoever to do with the economy.

Oh, Obama is going to fail something fierce, but you Democrats can already breathe a future sigh of relief right now: because the Antichrist you will soon be worshiping will fulfill your wildest dreams.

The Antichrist will also be the quintessential politician.

The Book of Daniel applies the term “wisdom” to both Daniel and the coming Antichrist.  Daniel was given wisdom to understand riddles and unravel them; Antichrist will have the wisdom to understand riddles and therefore tie the truth up in knots such that no human being will be able to penetrate his facade of lies and deceit.

He’s coming.  And he’s going to be here very soon.  And if you haven’t already made your decision for Jesus Christ, you will fall prey to the beast’s wisdom and you will worship him and you will take his mark.

Are you dismayed over the election last night?

Don’t be.  Read this:

An old missionary couple had been working in Africa for years and were  returning to New York to retire. They had no pension; their health was  broken; they were defeated, discouraged, and afraid. They discovered  they were booked on the same ship as President Teddy Roosevelt, who was  returning from one of his big-game hunting expeditions.

No one paid any attention to them. They watched the fanfare that  accompanied the President’s entourage, with passengers trying to catch a  glimpse of the great man. As the ship moved across the ocean, the old  missionary said to his wife, “Something is wrong.” “Why should we have  given our lives in faithful service for God in Africa all these many  years and have no one care a thing about us? Here this man comes back  from a hunting trip and everybody makes much over him, but nobody gives  two hoots about us.”

“Dear, you shouldn’t feel that way”, his wife said. He replied “I can’t  help it; it doesn’t seem right.”

When the ship docked in New York, a band was waiting to greet the  President. The mayor and other dignitaries were there. The papers were  full of the President’s arrival. No one noticed this missionary couple.  They slipped off the ship and found a cheap flat on the East Side,  hoping the next day to see what they could do to make a living in the  city.

That night the man’s spirit broke. He said to his wife, “I can’t take  this; God is not treating us fairly”. His wife replied, “Why don’t you  go in the bedroom and tell that to the Lord?”

A short time later he came out from the bedroom, but now his face was  completely different. His wife asked, “Dear, what happened?” “The Lord  settled it with me”, he said. “I told Him how bitter I was that the  President should receive this tremendous homecoming, when no one met us  as we returned home. And when I finished, it seemed as though the Lord  put His hand on my shoulder and simply said;

“But you’re not home yet.”

Author Unknown

America isn’t your home.

America has been hijacked by people who are determined to worship the beast and to force the country to worship the beast with them.

It’s sad, of course.  There’s no question it’s sad.  And you might feel sick, broken, defeated, discouraged and afraid.

But this isn’t your home.

And the same God who forewarned us about the world that would worship Antichrist also told us about a wonderful eternity that awaits all those who have placed their trust not in human government but in the Lamb of God.

If you still feel discouraged, go to your Bible and cheat: turn to the last page of Revelation to see who wins.

  1. Daniel Doyle Says:

    I appreciate your honor, and devotion to truth. You are spot on.

  2. Dog Walker Says:

    I am more than a little disgusted and probably shouldn’t be posting stuff to the internet. I hear these guys that I want as philosophical allies arguing that the Beast, uppercase “B”, is coming and that presentation seems so much like a capitulation or a surrender.

    I mean we can talk about damn Nazi Germany and what it was like when that generation of weasels sold their souls. But hell, maybe hundreds of thousand of them wrung their hands and said “oh, the Beast is coming. It was foretold.” Um, yeah, get right with God and die at the hand of the Beast. Hey, I bet that is what several million Jews did. Hell, if half of them woulda picked up guns and went down fighting, heck, they died anyway, they shoulda died fighting.

    That touching story about the missionary. “oh, we’re not home yet.”

    Hell, I am ok with dying and I am ok with dying in a civil war.

    But some of these arguments about recognizing the prophesy of the coming Beast seem too much like get ready for the Beast and submit because it is inevitable. But wait, it won’t really get too bad. Because when it gets really, really bad we’ll all be raptured on up.

    So no matter how bad it gets, don’t think about action. Just wait for rapture.

  3. FMC Says:

    Dog Walker,

    From your statement, I surmise that you don’t believe the Bible, that it is the true word of God. That’s fine and your choice and I won’t try changing your mind. However, if the BIble is true, it gives a detailed account of what is going to happen in the last days and this is what I believe. According to the book, it states that no man will be able to buy or sell unless he takes the mark. Basically, if you refuse to take the mark, you cannot participate in the economy. You will have to find some other way to provide for yourself and if you do receive the mark, you will be eternally damned. You can fight back, but what are you going to accomplish? You will be fighting against a government/political system and the vast majority of people who will follow it.

    I don’t understand your calling Jews weasels, if that’s what you meant. Sure, many of them could of resisted and died trying and I am sure there were many that did – that is noble and probably the route I would of taken, but that is my nature. But what would you have done if you were the father of a large family that included many women? Would you have rose up and gotten yourself killed? If so, they would have raped and killed every one in your family; they would have had absolutely no chance. It is pretty easy to talk about what you would have done, but I am sure it would change things a lot when the storm troopers were knocking on your door! Pretty damn easy to talk like a hero when you are not confronted with a diabolical government armed to the teeth and hell bent on genocide.

    You can fight all you want and that is fine, but the important thing is to get right and put your faith in God: that is what really counts. This life is just a flash, a mere vapor compared to eternity. They can take all that I have and then kill me, but they can never take away my eternal destiny.

  4. Kev74 Says:

    I too am not happy about the outcome of this election. Prophetically we know America must fall in order for the last world empire to arise. Obama’s re-election will only accelerate that process. If these are truly the end times as many believes then perhaps we are closer than we think.

    To Dog Walker, I am Christian and I believe in the rapture but I don’t believe in being passive or surrendering. I believe we should occupy until He comes and oppose evil wherever it is found. At the same time prophesy is written in stone. It doesn’t mean we should ever give up, but if it’s going to happen it going to happen and nothing we do will change that.

  5. Michael Eden Says:

    Daniel Doyle,

    Thanks, Daniel.

    Your phrase “devotion to truth” clearly means a great deal to both of us.

  6. Michael Eden Says:

    Dog Walker,

    I read your comment and read FMC’s response to your comment.

    I’ll say a couple of things first: the overwhelming majority of Jews – while they had the teachings of the book of Daniel – have – and had during WW2 – largely abandoned any sense of literal interpretation such that they would entertain “the last days” or “the beast” any more than YOU do. I say that to point out that if anyone’s doing what the Jews did regarding “the beast,” it’s actually you rather than we who accept the Bible and particularly the book of Revelation as recording in advance teaching about the last days and the last days dictator who would come. Because most of the Jews who went through the Holocaust would have been far more likely to agree on your take re: “the beast” than they would have mine.

    I also have to say that I fail to see the connection with presenting what the Bible has to say about the Beast as being in any way tantamount to either capitulation or surrender. You will have to explain far more in order for me to see the connection.

    Actually, it was my belief in the last days and the coming beast that motivated me to fight as hard as I have to warn the world about the danger posed by Obama. Because I didn’t WANT to see the beast and determined in my heart I would fight to oppose his coming. Which is to say that in my own case “the beast” actually movitvated me to fight rather than to capitulate or surrender.

    As for your arguing that the Christian view is, “Because when it gets really, really bad we’ll all be raptured on up,” I would also argue that that is certainly incorrect, at least in my own case. One of the things I will be presenting is my view that we will soon be experiencing a great economic collapse as described in Revelation chapter six. And as a result of that collapse we will see war, and famine and mass death – described by the Bible as the four horsemen of the Apocalypse.

    The Bible teaches that the whole world will ultimately worship the beast and accept his totalitarian economic system by which no man can either buy or sell anything without taking his mark upon their right hand or forehead. I ask, if the beast causes economic collapse, and war, and famine and mass death, why would the world worship such a leader? And here’s the point: the antichrist or the beast will ride in on his white horse to seemingly save the day as the world collapses. And people will worship him because of what he saved them from. He will appear to be a man with all the right answers – but the Bible has already exposed him: he will be the most wicked and evil man who ever lived.

    I suppose it may be just me, but I kind of appreciate the Bible’s heads-up on telling me who my enemies are so I’ll know them when I see them coming.

    You DO raise a very interesting question, without necessarily saying it: what should the Christian do when confronted by evil? And in particular, what should the Christian do when confronted by the evil of the beast?

    You’ll see if you read through (and it would be hell for me to do that) an exhange between myself and a fellow who called himself “eyptsteve” that I am not opposed to either “just war” or the use of force and violence when there is a righteous justification for it. In other words, there was a guy who thought the way you seem to think all Christians think, and I pretty much peed all over his non-violence parade.

    Finally, I have to agree with FMC that you are way too hard on the Jews: the Nazis had all the guns, for one thing, and kept the death camps secret so most Jews didn’t even see it coming, etc. But in addition to that, the modern Israelis whose fathers and mothers survived the death camps are the hardest and toughest fighters on the face of the earth, bar none. And their grim resolve of “never again” would put either your or my resolve to shame by way of comparsion. They suffered and endured what no other people in the history of the world EVER endured. And they survived. And AMERICA and THE AMERICAN PEOPLE are going to bow down to tyranny long before the Jews do now. And I think we’re already starting to see the proof of that particular pudding.

    Anyway, I’d say you’re just the kind of guy who should read the articles I post, because I think I can remove some misconceptions you have both about Bible prophecy and Christians.

  7. Michael Eden Says:

    Kev74,

    If somebody tries to break into my home to threaten my family, I will consider it my Christian duty to rid the world of that punk – and I mean that quite literally.

    So you won’t find me trying to tell anybody that violence at any time is a sin or anything like that (and if you’d like to see more how I reason re: violence you could also endure the unendurable and read through my exchange with the pacifist egyptsteve.

    In a nutshell, my two cents worth is that the statement, “Christians should always fight” (in the sense of employing violence) is as untrue as the statement that “Christians should never fight.” There is no question that Jesus turned the other cheek. And while I would argue that Jesus didn’t intend Christians to ALWAYS turn the other cheek in any and every circumstance (e.g., He also violently whipped the asses of the money changers in the Temple), there is no question that there is a time that true disciples of Jesus should be willing to not violently resist against evil/violence. And of course knowing when to do which is the essence of wisdom. And I pray that I will have it when I need it.

    In the sense of the last days and the Antichrist, I have a feeling that it will be taken out of the hands of the people pretty soon. Antichrist will take peoples’ guns away before he exposes himself as the evil son of perdition he truly is, and most people will surrender their guns. And then Antichrist will have the nice feeling of having all the guns while his opponents have nothing. You just don’t get the sense reading the Bible that the answer to beating this guy is through force – because “force” will be his signature product and he will cruch anyone and everyone who wants to play with him. As an example, read Daniel 11:36-39 to see the temperment of this coming beast.

    Ultimately, when Antichrist is destroyed, it will NOT be by human power (Daniel 8:23-25).

    I actually believe that Christians will be raptured and in heaven before the beast truly manifests himself. And it will be the rest of the world that are too weak and too cowardly to confront him, quite frankly.

  8. Dog Walker Says:

    Mr. Eden,

    I will always read your articles. I like them. I like the trouble you go to to make your point. I used to think myself a Christian. Not so much anymore. I never was able to resolve some of the weak links in faith and philosophy. I hope I am not too much of a detractor. I mean to be respectful but I suspect I get kind of out on the edge sometimes. One of my GOP buddies thinks that the religious right is a problem for the GOP. I don’t think that. I like Christians just fine. Especially the Christians that like me just fine. When I am driving I am going to listen to a cd that is a recitation of Revelation. I swore I was going to read it but that didn’t pan out.

  9. Michael Eden Says:

    Dog Walker,

    The only people I don’t want to bother with are atheists who flatly reject even the possibility of God. There’s no point talking to a fool (that’s the proper biblical term) who completely rejects a priori even the possibility of the existence of God.

    That is because the universe is awfully big and it turns out that we really don’t know jack squat about most of it. To say it is not possible that God could exist is just idiotic to the point of “go pee on someone else’s leg.”

    Pasqal came up with the idea of a “wager.” And the essence of his argument is that every man wagers whether there is a God by either believing and accepting God’s solution for sin that separates man from God and which sends people to hell or by refusing to believe. He essentially says, ‘Say the evidence for the existence of God is neutral; there is as much evidence for the existence of God as there is evidence against the existence of God. Should you accept God or reject Him? And Pascal says you should accept God. And the reason is that if there really IS a God and you don’t accept His salvation, you will die and burn in hell forever whether you like it or not. But if there is no God, then what really has the Christian sacrificed? Yes, good disciples of Jesus deny themselves certain activities, but in many ways they are happier people. Even, Pascal, if they turn out to be wrong and there really isn’t a God.

    It’s the most important question you can ask and answer for yourself: is there a God? If there is, what does He expect of me? Is there an afterlife? Where will I go when I die?

    I believe everyone should at least be an open seeker on those questions.

    And I encourage people to think about these questions and try to find answers to them.

    Ultimately, Dog Walker, I want truth. I want to know what the truth is, and I want to believe the truth, and I want to govern my life based on truth and reality. And in the same way, I want to be able to reject lies and that which is NOT reality. I want to live according to the truth and be able to NOT live according to lies. That’s my goal in life. And if the truth is that there isn’t a God, well then, dang it, I’d want to know that and change my life accordingly. But everything I have come across in my own examination of the questions and answers above is that there really IS a God. And so, as a truth-seeker, I want to live in light of what I truly believe to be “reality” and not just “believe” but then also live as if I really believed in that reality.

    On the question as to whether “the [Christian] religious right” is a problem for the GOP: Evangelical Christians make up the single largest bloc of the GOP, so of course it would be difficult to imagine the GOP faring better if evangelicals took their vote somewhere else. On the other hand, our opposition to things like gay marriage makes it easy to demonize us in a culture that has largely abandoned the concept of “morality.” But here’s the real problem for the GOP, in my view: the Democrat Party is able to keep offering more and more social support freebies to increasing segments of the population (especially non-whites!) if they vote for them. Democrats are able to offer single women free birth control if they vote for them. And unless the Republican Party is willing to pander the same way and match and then beat the Democrats in their socialism, well, we’re in trouble given this electorate, aren’t we?

    At this point, I believe the only thing that will change this stupid, weak, apathetic electorate is the complete economic failure of liberalism that is so in-your-face blatant that even the mainstream media can’t figure out how to blame Bush.

  10. The Dauntless Conservative Says:

    Dog Walker: re: “One of my GOP buddies thinks that the religious right is a problem for the GOP” There is also a religious left. If you live or travel any in the “bible belt”, there is a religious left as well. There is a considerble number of leftist/democrats who are Baptist, Methodist/Episcopalian/Lutheran and Catholics that I have encountered and worshiped with in my lifetime and I have a number of friends a family who worship under the same roof and they think W and “rich” Republicans are the devil. They are also pro-abortion, gay marriage rights. You will never see/hear that on MSNBC/CNN/ABC/CBS. They make us think the religious people are all on the right. Yet another lie and distortion. The real divisiveness is rooted in progressivism/marxism that has infiltrated the democrat party/educational establishment for the last 100 years or so.That is what the democrat party has become. The CPUSA supports obamarx. What more proof do we need?

  11. The Dauntless Conservative Says:

    MichaelE: Hey brother, I know how you feel. I was shocked to see the results. My first thoughts was this is FDR years all over again. The defense industry has announced massive layoffs was well as non-defense indurstries. How can the American people be so gullible is beyond me. I won’t bore you with a bunch of “why it happened” and I am sure there is more than one reason. Most that I heard from various pundits are/could be quite true. However, there one common denonominator that I saw on obamarx campaigning since he has been in office. He has hammered some big lies and it went like this: “We can’t go back to the policies of George Bush that got in this mess” and “Lets go back to the policies of Bill Clinton.” He hammered those two lies everywhere and everytime I see him on the boobtube. Romney and Ryan FAILED to articulate/counter those two lies away. I mentiioned this not long ago. Those 2 lies are so embedded, subliminally, in the minds of the electorate to the point it is accepted as truth and nothing you are I can say will change their minds. Same thing with the FDR generation. It has been hammered in the minds by the media and educational establishment to generations that it is accepted as truth. Yet nothing could be further from the truth as that. That is how, in my opinion, obamarx and foot-in-mouth lunch box joe won. Now, where have we seen this before?

  12. Dog Walker Says:

    “Generation of weasels” er, um, I meant the Germans of the Nazi era. I can’t believe my communication skills are so bad that you gys idn’t get that.

  13. Michael Eden Says:

    Dauntless,

    I know you’re responding to Dog Walker, but here’s a good place for me to state this from a post-election analysis:

    Another dividing line in the electorate, as in 2008, was religion. Three out of five voters who told exit poll interviewers they attended religious services weekly or more often preferred Romney, while 40 percent backed Obama. This represented about a five point improvement among such voters for Romney over McCain’s performance four years ago.

    Among those who said they never attend religious services (a much smaller portion of the electorate) Obama won more than three of five.

    Religious people came out in droves to vote for Romney. It was the IRRELIGIOUS people who overwhelmingly voted for Obama.

    It actually makes as much (if not more) sense to blame “white people.” Because you could say the same thing: white people supported Romney overwhelmingly, but there just aren’t enough of them to offset the race-baiting non-white people.

  14. Michael Eden Says:

    Dauntless,

    To your 3:30 comment.

    I saw very early that Obama was making the 2012 election all about “George W. Bush” and “Republicans want to follow the same failed policies that led to the recession.” I also saw Romney refusing to answer those charges.

    I tried to write my responses to the Obama lie machine. I tried to say 1) things were actually BETTER under Bush than they have EVER been under you and 2) why must Republican policies lead to Bush? Remember Reagan? Why can’t Republican policies lead to Reagan other than the fact that Obama and his thugs are a bunch of lying demagogues?

    I stated my biggest fear about Romney: that he was John McCain the better hair and teeth, and he would leave most of the points he could have fought with on the table rather than actually USING them.

    That might be what happened. But what I see in turnouts that were even greater for single women, blacks, Hispanics, etc. is the fact that they want government dependency rather than a decent economy. And if that is true America is over. Period. Write the obituary.

  15. The Dauntless Conservative Says:

    MichaelE: re: religious people.
    Yes, I know and I don’t disagree, generally, with your analysis. My main point was that there is a religious left and religious people are not always on the right. I have family members who are are Baptist love God, etc and support obamarx. How could that be so? I can understand Mr sunday school teacher peanut Carter, but obamarx? I wrote them off as just naive and clueless and they think the same about Clinton as I previously described. White guilt, I guess. I tried once to show them facts and and they blow up and walk away…just cannot accept facts. Sometimes you have to let pigs continue to play in their slop. I was democrat in my younger days, and one day I woke up and saw, historically and institutionally what the democrat party was and is…the crap FDR and W. Wilson did, who the KKK really was and is, etc. which we have discussed before. They just cannot accept historical facts because they are too busy clinging on to their lies. It is called pride.

    MichaelE; re: 330 comment. To be more precise in your analysis, I would argue/focus that it was the latino vote couple with the black vote. Culturally, the mexicans come from a poor country. They believe wealth comes from “de gubmint”. So, that is how they will vote. As long as illegals flood our borders, this USA is gone and I am afraid that it already is rolling down that cliff. Take a step back and look at the election and the state level and Congressional level. The Tea Party shored up the House, I think the net loss was a few and the Senate, Republicans lost a 2 or 3(???) but the governorships gained in Republicans(???). So, that is the bright side. Conservatism can win in the next midterms and presidential. We need a conservative presidential candidate that can wipe out the lies about W and Clinton that I mentioned because that is so engrained into the psyche of the electorate just like the FDR lie. I would argue that is what keeps the demoncrat party alive. Lies.

    Btw, MichaelE, I hope you had a great Veteran’s Day. From one vet to another, thank you for your service. No father and son time at the range today…rain.

  18. FMC Says:

    I think I have heard all the reasons why someone did or did not vote for either candidate. However, this is the way I look at it: If you voted for Obama, you are a complete idiot, moron, and fool. I hope those people in New York who were savaged by super-storm Sandy realize that you cannot count on government and must take responsibility for one’s self.

    The American population is being conditioned to become dependent on government. This will make it very easy for the beast to assume power and take complete control. The majority of the population is just down right stupid and will gladly take the mark and jump right into hell. Anymore, I am starting to have no sympathy for these idiots and can’t wait for the judgement to begin. These people disregard the truth and believe total lies. They will get everything they deserve. Bring on the four horsemen…

    “Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD. “

  19. Michael Eden Says:

    Dauntless,

    Hey, thanks a lot for that wish. And I hope you had a happy day honoring Veterans on the Day that WWI ended (Armistice Day). It always means a lot, but it particularly means a lot in time of war and threats facing the nation.

    You know, I had a “Happy Veterans Day” wish that really caught me off guard Monday that your words move me to share with you.

    I joined a gym and made friends with one of the trainers who frequently runs the counter. In a lot of ways, he reminds me of a young me. And as another detail, he is also Hispanic and proud of his culture. Which I like. And there is no question he is truly American – which he proved in this story. He had noticed soon after I joined that I have a tatoo of the unit I served with and he’d heard of it. And he said, “Thanks for your service.” It was really nice to have that little bit of recognition. Particularly from a young man in his early 20s.

    Well, as I was leaving the gym this young Hispanic guy says, “Happy Veteran’s Day” and again recognizing my service three months later. I said to him, “Thank you. That really means a lot.” Because it did.

    Well, I’ve had quite a few short chats with him. He’s mentioned his family several times, and we’ve even talked about politics. You can tell he’s a good kid and his parents are good people. In a lot of ways, this young guy has conservative values. In many others, he has conservative tendencies but isn’t aware of it yet. But his parents and many members of his family believed all kinds of crap about Obama that had been poisoned in to the heads of anybody who watched Spanish television. They believed that Mitt Romney had said that he would throw all 12-25 million illegal Hispanics out of America if he was elected (lie). Romney had already stated that he would honor Obama’s unconstitutional executive orders and allow what Obama was allowing. They believed that Mitt Romney had said he would abolish the minimum wage (lie). Romney actually said that the minimum wage should rise with inflation, which is a far distant thing from abolishing the minimum wage. Anyway, when he said these things, I explained to him that neither was true and his family was trusting pure demagogic propaganda instead of facts. And as I explained the facts it seemed to me he accepted them as facts.

    A lot of Hispanic people are mostly conservative in their social/moral values. They’ve been trained/indoctrinated/propagandized to abandon their values to benefit their fellow people. But they’re being lied to massively by truly dishonest media manipulators who heard them to conclusions the way slaughterhouses herd cattle to their slaughterers. And one day you get the sense from young men like this one that one day they’re going to know that they’ve been lied to. Which means hope never dies.

    All that said, it really is nice to be honored as a veteran.

    I see a lot of old guys wearing caps or jackets with lots of pin badges denoting their service and units and campaigns. And you start to realize when you see these guys is that service in the American military is a truly good and noble thing to do. And these men believed that it was a transcendent cause, something that was above themselves and therefore worth fighting for and even dying for. And I realized looking at those old guys who wear their military colors that there really aren’t that many things that, ten years, twenty, fifty, heck, even a hundred, people can still rightly remember with pride and honor. I’m proud that I’m a Christian who serves, and I’m proud of my military service. Other than that, there aren’t that many things that I’ve done that I believe truly deserve honor from society. If I live to be a hundred, I can still feel great pride that I served America as a soldier eighty years ago. The people who didn’t serve just don’t have that, do they?

  20. Michael Eden Says:

    FMC,

    I totally agree with you. And I urge you to try to make the same journey I’m about to go on regarding your attitude.

    Btw, I wasn’t familiar with the passage you cited (Jeremiah 17:5), and felt the wording of these versions was insightul:

    This is what the LORD says: “Cursed is the one who trusts in man, who depends on flesh for his strength and whose heart turns away from the LORD.” (NIV)

    This is what the LORD says: “Cursed are those who put their trust in mere humans, who rely on human strength and turn their hearts away from the LORD.” (New LIving Translation)

    Yes, people who abandon fundamental values such as basic respect for human life and basic respect for marriage between one man and one woman as God ordained it vote Democrat. And, yes, since Karl Marx stated that from the leftist view “religion is … the opiate of the masses,” leftists (Democrats) have been fundamentally anti-God, anti-Bible, anti-Christian, anti-Judeo-Christian moral values, you name it. And like leftist Karl Marx, leftist Democrats are trying to remove God from consideration and then replace Him with the State.

    I think all that’s true and more.

    And I was realizing that in all that political blogging, I regarded Democrats as what they clearly were – my enemies. And I wanted victory over my enemies, which is what one tends to hope for when they’re fighting their enemies.

    But now the fight is over. And we lost the political battle big time because of changes in the electorate – such as a majority of amoral people over moral people – such that we may have just entered the last race of America toward extinction almost as if we are looking forward to the economic collapse we just guaranteed would happen. The only way the Republican Party can win at this point is if Obama and his pack of Democrat wolves so destroy America that people turn against them (which of course was what happened in 2010 before the media conditioned people to remember anything else instead). But this time – let’s suppose it happens in 2014 just like it happened in 2010 – I think it will be truly too late. Because, as an example, by 2014 ObamaCare will be the irrefutable law of the land no matter how much of a nation-killing disaster it will turn out to be.

    The course of this nation is set the way the course of a kamakazi pilot was set when the ship he had chosen to fly himself into was set. It’s going to go bye-bye.

    The more you have government dependency, the more you can create constituencies that depend on you to get reelected. Until the country economically implodes as its unpayable debt crushes it to death. That is the path to hell. America turned away from the competing statement: the more you have a free market republic, the more you can create a strong and vital America that will preserve and build the nation. And of course we made the foolish choice.

    Well, we’ve got two choices here: we can either spend our time denouncing them and being angry at them – as I was and did – or we can begin to recognize that “the United States of America” isn’t in the Bible and America is merely one nation – weakened and reduced by liberal socialism as it will be – among many who will fall victim to the same deception on a vastly higher order of magnitude. The Antichrist will be to the world what Obama will be to America. The world will follow him to its exctinction.

    We need to put this election past us, FMC. Not as “political warriors” but as “warriors for Christ.” Rather than fight over why Rome is burning in the middle of the fire wHILE Rome is burning all around us, I think we should be pursuing what will not fail us the the American electorate failed us – and realize that these people aren’t merely “un-American traitors who are imploding our country”, but that they are sinners who desperately need Jesus hopefully before the beast comes.

    I spent the last five years trying to fight what just happened on Nov 6. I wrote a lot of articles and I contributed a bunch of money to candidates who all lost (or at least are all-but lost like Allen West who is demanding a recount but is currently “the loser”). And it was all wasted by the most vile campaign of smear and slander and lie that I have ever seen. I watched overwhelming majorities of people who will probably become the dominant voting bloc in America comletely abandon American history, biblical morality, fiscal sanity, etc. And I’m not going to put my fight on that front any more.

    I’m going to fight this as a spiritual battle against satan in the last days rather than a political fight to the death over what increasingly little is left of America as the cancer of liberalism devours our economy.

    It’s a much brighter outlook. America is going to lose – there’s a damn good reason America isn’t in the Bible – and that is because we are on the verge of complete implosion like I kept trying to warn people about. If you read your Bible you find that there is a much more important battle going on that God wins and we win by trusting in the name of Jesus the King of kings and Lord of lords. I see the Bible being fulfilled like it has not been since one very special baby was born in a manger in a little town called Bethlehem. And I understand that the world is going to go through the worst enema in all of history as it places its trust in the big government Antichrist the way Americans put their trust in big government Obama. And it makes me want to stop bitching at Democrats and start trying to reach out to souls that can be saved.

    You can argue that the two attitudes are not mutally exclusive (i.e., you can harbor the one and then harbor the other without being random), but I would still say that I’d rather spend my time being “servant of Christ” than being “bitcher at Democrats.” I’m really going to try to shift my attitude to reflect that very different focus. I’m going to put my fight into the battle that the last page of the Bible says God wins.

  21. Michael Eden Says:

    Dauntless,

    I can’t argue with the fact that people like your Baptist family members support Obama. I mean, they’re right in front of your face and it would be silly to say they don’t exist.

    That said, surveys show very clearly that they are very much in the minority when it comes to “religious people.” Surveys show that the more one attends or is involved with his or her church, the more likely one is to vote conservative and Republican. And at the opposite end of the spectrum, the less religious or God-centric someone is, the more likely he or she is to vote Democrat.

    And, of course, the more America becomes a post-Christian nation, and the more its people turn away from God, the more they’re going to vote Democrat.

    Until the beast comes, which will be soon. Then they’ll vote for the beast and say, “Who is like him?”

  22. FMC Says:

    Michael,

    You are absolutely right. The Bible plainly states what is going to happen and there is nothing that is going to stop it – it is prophecy.

    Before the election, I was speaking with a friend who is a Christian and a hard-core conservative. I told him that I feared that Obama was going to win, because I thought we were getting too far into the last days and that, for some reason, only Obama could lead us in that direction. Obviously, he is the perfect fit. Besides, God is sovereign and only He knows the time table we are on. There is nothing that I can do about this. Besides, who am I!

    It will take me a little time to get on the path that you are on. I am still mad, still mad because every day I hear the idiocy of the left from those around me. However, I must realize that this goes beyond politics and the root lies in the battle between good and evil and God and satan. More than likely, those that voted for Obama are lost and their true problem is a spiritual one and should be addressed as such.

    As someone who is in tune to the financial markets, I know what is coming. I know that the average American is not ready for this. It just saddens me that this once great nation is going to go down that path. Back in 2007, I used to tell my Mother and Stepfather that they needed to get out of the stock market because it and everything else was in serious trouble. She would laugh at me and started to call me the prophet of doom. Of course my warnings proved accurate. Now, I am warning her again and there is alot more at stake and I am getting the same response. She is the proverbial frog boiling in the pot. In addition, she does not know the Lord. Her mother, my Grandmother, who is nearly 88, does not either. This is a sad state of affairs with my family. I also tell those around me what is coming, but no one listens. This is hard, because I am stuck between trying to do something about this and just letting prophecy come to pass.

    Going back to the Bible, it reminds me of this, because this is all that you can do:

    And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.

  23. Michael Eden Says:

    FMC,

    I’m listening to Obama’s rhetoric – you know, all the extremist rhetoric that he is using on issues that will define how quickly this country implodes. He said he’d compromise with Republicans to get reelected. Now we will find out that Obama never meant a damn word of it as he insists on getting his way or going off the fiscal cliff so he can spend the NEXT four years blaming Republicans.

    I know what you’re talking about: we’re watching riots across Europe today because Europe is facing the consequences for the same socialism that Obama has plunged America into. America voted to face the same crisis of impending implosion that Europe is facing; and they don’t know it yet but they’re also voting to riot just like all the Europeans are rioting the moment sheer reality forces any cuts in welfare spending whatsoever.

    America is going down hard and in 2008 we voted to stick the loaded gun to our own temples and now we just voted to pull the trigger. It is such a pathetic way for the greatest nation in the history of the world to implode that it is unreal.

    Believe me, it’s not like I don’t understand the anger. But you just can’t let it consume you. I think that’s obvious to both of us. Doesn’t necessarily make it any easier to stop being angry.

    Between massive reports of fraud, between uncounted ballots starting to turn up that were hidden away until it was known they couldn’t affect the outcome of the election, between how incredibly well Obama did in building a constiuency of permanent need and dependency on government, and between Obama’s already increasingly strident tone, it’s going to be a sucky next few years to be politically aware of actual reality. And the beast is coming, btw.

    I’ve spent the last five years trying to fight in the political arena. That battle is over for me; I think by the time we get Republicans back in office even in 2014, it will be far too late to stop Obama’s “fundamental transformation” of America.

    I think it’s time to start fighting for souls rather than trying to fight Obama. The nation chose its fate, and they’re welcome to the hell that they voted for. But I’m going to “lift up my eyes, and see the harvest,” because the time is short.

    Obviously, I agree with Jesus about shaking the dust of those who don’t receive the Gospel from your feet. But remember, “those who shall not receive you” doesn’t describe those who voted for Obama, but rather those who refuse the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

    Angry or not, I am trying to focus on a different mission than trying to convince somebody not to do what they’ve already damn well done. Obama got reelected. Now I’m going to focus on a different mission, and frankly one that is far more important particuarly now that Barry Hussein gets another four years to implode America.

  24. please read VIP Says:

    must watch and hear video on youtube titled, “Christ testimony of the churches around the world.” there are two identical Jesus Christ revelation 17:8. most of revelation is happening in the spirit world. that’s why Jesus said it would be like the days of Noah and Lot. the abomination of desolation is happening in the spirit realm inside all these man made buildings set up for worship. the Christians and catholics, etc are not aware of what’s happening to them and around them in these places, (churches -any four wall building representing God to gather believers of Christ). these churches around the world are all connected to “The Great City” Revelation 11, which is spiritually called Sodom and Egypt and Mystery of iniquity. this email is not a joke. Church leaders around the world are searching of the earthly signs. this will not happen until the very last day and hour. God will not allow man to destroy the earth with nuclear bombs. read matthew 3:12 and Revelation 20:9. God sends his son to the earth with the fire behind him consuming all his enemies which are left from the resurrection of the dead and those that are alive. the body of Christ is gathered as the son of man appears at last sound of shofar, he is coming while the wheat are gathered and the tares are left as the chaff and earth is consumed by the fire of God.

  25. Michael Eden Says:

    please read VIP,

    I don’t mean to diss the spirit world (the spiritual realm is as real as the physical). But I would argue that the days of Lot and the days of Noah actually happened in the physical world.

    The flood, for example, wasn’t “spiritual.” Actual water fell on earth. And the ark that Noah built wasn’t “spiritual,” but rather it was a real boat made out of real materials.

    I would also argue that if everything from the Book of Revelation was taking place in “the spiritual world,” then God would have written the Book of Revelation for the angels who can see it rather than for the humans who cannot.

    Bottom line: I very much believe that the Book of Revelation describes what the physical world that humans live in (and the ONLY world that humans can understand or see) will be like in the last days. Of course, there ARE things that we are told about that we are clearly TOLD happen in the spiritual world. We’re told about scenes in heaven and we’re told about what the angels are doing. But the beast is a human leader on an all-too-real and physical earth.
