Jesus warned His followers about the nature of the last days:
“Teacher,” they asked, “when will these things happen? And what will be the sign that they are about to take place?” He replied: “Watch out that you are not deceived. For many will come in My name, claiming, ‘I am he,’ and, ‘The time is near.’ Do not follow them. When you hear of wars and uprisings, do not be frightened. These things must happen first, but the end will not come right away.” — Luke 21:7-9
“Change will not come if we wait for some other person or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. (Cheers, applause.) We are the change that we seek. We are the hope of those boys who have so little, who’ve been told that they cannot have what they dream, that they cannot be what they imagine. Yes, they can.”
Barack Obama made HIMSELF the living embodiment of the dreams and the hopes of godless mankind. It was a perverse borrowing of Jesus’ teaching concerning Himself:
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in Me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from Me you can do nothing.” — John 15:5
Obama’s blatant messianic grandeur was amazing, surpassing even Adolf Hitler’s claims of himself and his magnificence (all delivered in an incredibly cynical pretense of “humility” that is stunning in its self-refutation):
“The journey will be difficult. The road will be long. I face this challenge with profound humility, and knowledge of my own limitations. But I also face it with limitless faith in the capacity of the American people. Because if we are willing to work for it, and fight for it, and believe in it, then I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on Earth. This was the moment – this was the time – when we came together to remake this great nation so that it may always reflect our very best selves, and our highest ideals. Thank you, God Bless you, and may God Bless the United States of America.”
Barack Obama’s message was and remains simple: “The God of the Bible is intolerant and hateful. Put your trust in ME. Put your faith in MY GOVERNMENT and MY POWER to fundamentally transform the United States of America according to MY ANTICHRIST AGENDA. Make ME your savior; make ME your deliverer. Vote AGAINST the God of the Bible and vote for ME.”
If you listen to a Republican’s message – and particularly a conservative Republican’s – you will hear a promise that the candidate will get the government off our backs, will cut taxes, will cut regulations, will allow businesses to grow rather than punishing them, and therefore you will have the opportunity to get a job, improve your life, work toward a better future. When you listen to a Democrat’s message – and especially Obama’s – you hear someone representing themselves as the living embodiment of a colossal government that will take care of you, provide for you, take other people’s stuff so your Big Brother can dole it out to you. And that is precisely why the Democrat Party is pathologically fascist and why the Antichrist will come as a liberal, as a socialist, as a man who embodies the promise that human government is the Ultimate Master.
Obama’s message has prevailed in America. And it prevailed because he is a slanderer and a liar who came with a false message. As the greatest example of this, Obama falsely came to America “as a Christian” who claimed, “I believe that marriage is the union between a man and a woman” and “as a Christian” that “it is also a sacred union.” But he was a liar and a deceiver. When asked if he would actually seek to be honest and trustworthy in what he said about marriage, Obama refused. He said he was against a constitutional amendment that would make his view of marriage the law. On what grounds? Obama falsely said: “Because historically — because historically, we have not defined marriage in our constitution. It’s been a matter of state law. That has been our tradition. I mean, let’s break it down.” And Obama further mocked faith itself when he said, “I think my faith is strong enough and my marriage is strong enough that I can afford those civil rights to others, even if I have a different perspective or different view.”
We now see how warped and false and dishonest and deceitful and depraved EVERYTHING Obama claimed to stand for was. Because not only did he fundamentally lie about his view of homosexual marriage – and yes, this according to the man who ran his dishonest campaign for him – but he fundamentally lied about what he said about the states having any right to decide or define marriage and about people of any opposing view to actually have any right to any conscience or “different perspective or different view.” Because Obama came out and CELEBRATED the Supreme Court’s decision that STATE LAW DOES NOT DEFINE MARRIAGE. Obama is a liar from hell. And NO, people should NOT have a right to any different perspective or different view. YOU WILL BELIEVE AS THE STATE COMPELS YOU TO BELIEVE, PERIOD.
If you are a Democrat today, you believe in lies and you believe in an Antichrist agenda. Further, you yourself are an antichrist.
Today we see in so many ways the blatant hostility to the truth. Jesus prophesied the rabid hostility that would always characterize those who took their stand in the Word of God:
“If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated Me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed My teaching, they will obey yours also. — John 15:18-20
But the wicked, unbelieving world that follows the devil and follows Obama certainly doesn’t follow the teachings of Christians any longer, does it? Rather, what we are seeing today is cynical, depraved LIARS like Barack Hussein Obama, while falsely claiming to be “Christians,” are deceiving the masses and imposing THE EXACT OPPOSITE of what Christ and His Word taught. We live in the age of Isaiah 5:20:
“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness, who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.”
And woe to YOU if you follow these lying perverts of truth.
As for gay marriage, just a few years ago Elena Kagan ruled, “There is no federal constitutional right to same-sex marriage.” Because she and all her kind stand for nothing but hypocrisy. It didn’t help her wicked master Obama when he was trying to carry out his grand deception. For the record, the Constitution has not changed one iota since this depraved and wicked INjustice was stuck on the Supreme Court by the most wicked president in the history of the world’s oldest republic. There is STILL no federal constitutional right to same-sex marriage. The only thing that has changed is we are more wicked now and more willing to believe lies as a result of our wickedness.
When I was going to seminary years ago, I actually received a powerful sense that one day I would end up in prison for my belief in the Word of God concerning marriage, concerning homosexuality, concerning what Jesus taught about marriage in Matthew 19, when He declared:
And He answered and said, “Have you not read that He who created them from the beginning MADE THEM MALE AND FEMALE, and said, ‘FOR THIS REASON A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER AND BE JOINED TO HIS WIFE, AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH ‘? So they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate.” — Matthew 19:4-6
– concerning what the Old Testament that Jesus declared He was going to fulfill to the very letter declared was “an abomination” and “a detestable act” (Leviticus 20:13); and concerning what the New Testament repeatedly specifically condemns in 1 Corinthians 6:9, in Jude 1:7, 1 Timothy 1:10, Revelation 21:27 and most especially Romans 1:18-31 which is as crystal clear as it gets that approval of homosexuality is the rock-bottom lowest and most ungodly level any culture can degenerate to.
Today I am in a very senior level of leadership in my church. There is now little question that it is merely a matter of time before two homosexuals demand to be “married” in my church and I and my church will lose in a perverted, wicked court of “law.” Habakkuk wailed the same wail that I wail today:
The law has become paralyzed and there is no justice in the courts. The wicked far outnumber the righteous, so that justice has become perverted. — Habakkuk 1:4
But God promised that He would bring His WRATH against such a wicked nation that would so defile their commitment to Him and to His ways. God said He would send the most vicious people on earth to destroy and enslave such a nation; He promised He would send terrible droughts to the places that desperately needed water for crops and torrential flooding to the places that didn’t need water.
Democrats call it “economic inequality” and “climate change” and God calls it His divine judgment because of the wickedness of Democrats. And every single time the abject godless wickedness of Democrats brings about God’s wrath, twisted, vile, perverted, demonic Democrats cite the very wrath that they brought on America as their reason to pursue even MORE wickedness. It is who they are. It is what they do. And they will not stop until they are screaming in agony in the fire of hell forever and ever.
You look at what’s happening in Greece right now. And realize that’s coming to America. And the same secular humanist progressive liberal socialist – in other words, the same Democrat – policies that guaranteed that Greece would catastrophically go bankrupt is similarly ensuring that America will plunge into bankruptcy and chaos. And the incredible thing is that in Greece, just as in America, liberals/socialists decry and blame NOT THE INSANE SPENDING THAT LED THEM TO BANKRUPTCY BUT THE AUSTERITY THAT IS THE ONLY SOLUTION TO INSANE SPENDING as the cause of the crisis. For liberals, the logic is very simple: I keep insanely spending money and I WILL NOT stop, so you take my credit card away – and so it’s YOUR fault that I can’t keep insanely spending and so it’s therefore YOUR fault for whatever tragedy befalls me. Because these people are profoundly wicked and dishonest and deceived and they WILL NOT be awakened by reality no matter how massively it comes crashing down upon them.
So the liberal/socialist Greek leaders who are the equivalent of Democrats in America say they’ll meet in July to deal with the crisis when the crisis is going to destroy the nation IN JUNE. These people are insane; they are morally insane.
As are we. And anybody who believed anything other than what is happening in Greece would happen when the country voted for liberals/socialists is beyond insane. There is simply no hope for these people; they are completely blind to reality. They will not believe the truth no matter what.
We see that right now today in the liberal Democrat bastion that is Puerto Rico. They are as bankrupt as Greece for the same reason that Greece is bankrupt. And Puerto Rico is “only” $72 billion in debt – versus California being now well over $500 billion in debt but papering over their insane union pension debt as fast as the bills come in. While the most accurate measure of our debt that shows our TRUE liabilities has us way, WAY over $250 TRILLION in debt if we actually measure reality.
That is the spirit of Obama. That is the spirit of the Democrat Party today.
I’ve been writing over and over the same message:
I’ve been pointing out the point that words mean NOTHING and facts mean NOTHING today to Democrats. They are so pathologically dishonest and so self-deceived that they simply twist the truth and twist reality to whatever their perverted minds want “truth” and “reality” to be. Such that being “black” doesn’t mean being “black” any more; no, it means being a rabid liberal. Such that Clarence Thomas does not qualify as a black man because he doesn’t meet the twisted, warped, depraved mockery of truth and reality that Democrats have redefined “black” to mean. And in the same way, what do words like “male” and “female” mean any more? Don’t bother to ask a Democrat, because Democrats are warped and perverted beyond belief. Bruce Jenner is a woman to them but Sarah Palin fails to qualify – because these people are warped and depraved and dishonest and deceived beyond any reach of reality or truth. What does it mean to be a rapist? Don’t ask a Democrat, because these people have raped reality and raped truth to the point where it is dead to them. They are perverts with a perverted view of everything under heaven.
Which is why God in His wisdom knew that hell was the only possible place for them.
So with all of that by way of instruction I give you another article which simply goes to underscore the abject mockery of truth or reality or plain, common sense that the left has utterly abandoned in its foolishness and contempt for God and His ways:
A terrible precedent
By David B. Rivkin Jr., Elizabeth Price Foley
June 29, 2015, 5:00 AM
In King vs. Burwell, the Supreme Court ruled that the Affordable Care Act permits individuals who purchase insurance on the federal exchange to receive taxpayer subsidies. Though the King decision pleases the ACA’s ardent supporters, it undermines the rule of law, particularly the Constitution’s separation of powers.
Under Section 1401 of the ACA, tax credits are provided to individuals who purchase qualifying health insurance in an “[e]xchange established by the State under Section 1311.” Section 1311 defines an exchange as a “governmental agency or nonprofit entity that is established by a State.”
As Justice Antonin Scalia’s dissent notes, one “would think the answer would be obvious” that pursuant to this clear language, subsidies are available only through state-established exchanges.
Yet the King majority ignored what the ACA actually says, in favor of what the Obama administration believes it ought to have said, effectively rewriting the language to read “exchange established by the State or federal government.”
Scalia observes that “Words no longer have meaning if an Exchange that is not established by a State is ‘established by the State.’” Like Humpty Dumpty in Lewis Carroll’s “Through the Looking Glass,” the majority claims that when the court is asked to interpret a word, “it means just what [the court chooses] it to mean — neither more nor less.”
To reach the desired meaning, the King majority declared that “an exchange established by the State” was somehow ambiguous, enabling it to ignore the text and advance instead its vision of the ACA’s overarching purpose. But the precedent upon which the King majority relied for this contextual interpretation, FDA vs. Brown and Williamson Tobacco Corp. (2000), involved a fundamentally different situation.
In that case, a group of tobacco manufacturers challenged the Food and Drug Administration’s authority to regulate tobacco products as “medical devices” or “drugs.” The court concluded that the words “device” and “drug” did not directly address tobacco and were consequently ambiguous.
The court looked beyond the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, or FFDCA, for contextual clues, discovering that Congress had subsequently passed several statutes allowing the continued sale of tobacco products, while regulating their labeling and advertising. This suggested to the justices that Congress did not intend tobacco to be regulated under the FFDCA as a drug or device.
In King, by contrast, there were no subsequent statutes providing contextual clues about congressional intent. The only reliable evidence was contained in the act’s language itself. This extra-textual approach is deeply problematic for the rule of law, since discerning a statute’s meaning from its context is always a dicey proposition, necessitating judicial inquiry into inchoate matters such as the law’s “purpose.”
Ascertaining a law’s purpose from evidence outside its text is virtually impossible, given that Congress consists of 535 members, each of whom is motivated by different purposes. This is why, at least until King, the court has not resorted to contextual interpretation when the text is plain.
In the words of Palmer vs. Massachusetts (1939), contextual interpretation is a “subtle business, calling for great wariness lest what professes to be … attempted interpretation of legislation becomes legislation itself.” Yet this is exactly what happened in King: Attempted interpretation became legislation itself. By ignoring what the ACA actually says, in favor of what the King majority believes the statute ought to have said or what it thinks Congress meant to say, the court upset the entire constitutional balance.
The King majority acknowledged that the ACA is full of “inartful drafting” and was written “behind closed doors, rather than through the traditional legislative process.” It also conceded that it was passed using unusual parliamentary procedures, and “[a]s a result, the Act does not reflect the type of care and deliberation that one might expect of such significant legislation.”
Despite all these flaws, the majority felt compelled to save Congress, and the ACA, from its own foibles. Specifically, the King majority believed that applying the ACA’s plain meaning “would destabilize the individual insurance market in any State with a Federal Exchange, and likely create the very ‘death spirals’ that Congress designed the Act to avoid.”
Even if a loss of subsidies would have exacerbated the death spiral, courts are emphatically not in the law-writing business. Article I, Section 1 of the Constitution grants “all” lawmaking power to Congress,” not merely “some.” The job of the judiciary is to implement laws, warts and all.
When judges take it upon themselves to “fix” a law — or to bless an executive “fix” — they diminish political accountability by encouraging Congress to be sloppy. And they bypass the political process established by the Constitution’s separation of powers, arrogating to itself — and the executive — the power to amend legislation.
This leads to bad laws, bad policy outcomes and fosters the cynical belief that “law is politics.”
David B. Rivkin Jr. is a constitutional litigator at BakerHostetler who served in the Justice Department and the White House Counsel’s Office in the Reagan and George H.W. Bush administrations. Elizabeth Price Foley is Of Counsel at BakerHostetler and a professor of constitutional law at Florida International University College of Law.
We are dealing with a group of wicked, deceived people who cannot be dealt with. Words mean NOTHING to them; reality means NOTHING to them; truth means NOTHING to them. It is their desire and their very nature to be completely deceived by liars and their lies.
We live in an age of LAWLESSNESS against God’s Laws. And the Bible described this time:
“Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction.” — 2 Thessalonians 2:3
2 Thessalonians 2:7 describes “the mystery of lawlessness” that will get worse and worse and worse and culminate just as the Antichrist, the beast, comes.
We live in the ultimate final days of REBELLION against God and His Word. And our day is characterized by a spirit of lawlessness by which even our judges and most especially our president are lawless thugs and tyrants who impose wickedness on the land and literally defy God to bring His wrath upon their people and their nation.
“The mystery of lawlessness.” I think that’s such a powerful phrase. I now understand it as I watch pure EVIL becoming transcendent in the world and no one is doing anything to stop it or prevent it. To the extent that we have human government, it is either doing NOTHING to stop the rise of evil – such as the cases of Islamic State and other Islamists creating vicious caliphates across increasingly broad land masses, such as the case of Russia gobbling up helpless nations while the world does nothing meaningful to punish them and restore what was seized; such as Iran feverishly working toward nuclear weapons while a US administration actively helps them do so and in so doing facilitates the proliferation of nuclear weapons across the Middle East as Sunni Muslim nations read the writing on the wall understanding the sheer moral idiocy of Obama’s so-called “deal” with Iran and begin to work toward their own bomb to try to respond to the Shiite Iranian nuclear threat – or government is itself becoming the SOURCE of evil as secular humanist liberal government murders sixty million innocent babies in America alone by abortion, as government imposes rabid homosexuality on Christians and forces them to bow down before the sodomy of what used to be “Christendom”, as secular humanist liberal government becomes the engine of abandoning Israel and leaving the Apple of God’s eye dependent on the coming Antichrist in direct fulfillment of Daniel 9:27. And if you are a Democrat don’t think for one second that you won’t one day be held accountable by a wrathful God for the government that you voted for and that your support enabled. “The mystery of evil” is that God’s people are watching evil rise and we cannot do anything to prevent it. And we are left shocked and dismayed that the godless and the wicked are so transcendent and so powerful and so unstoppable as we enter the last days before the full wrath of God is revealed against this godless, wicked world in the form of the Tribulation.
We are a nation of laws. We have a constitution. Yet Obama is running so roughshod over both that even Jonathon Turley – the SECOND most cited legal expert in America as well as an ardent liberal – is warning constantly that Barack Obama is a clear and present threat to the very Constitution and to the heart of American law. Turley argues passionately that Obama has become the very danger that the Constitution was written to avoid.
Obama has simply abrogated the law wherever he has wished. On health care, where he abrogated the clear meaning and intent of even his OWN law. On homosexual marriage, where Obama simply declared himself exalted above the Defense of Marriage Act that was approved by both the House and the Senate and signed into law by President Bill Clinton. And now repeatedly on the issue of immigration, where Obama literally imposed measures that failed to win approval in BOTH branches of Congress (the DREAM Act).
Like Obama, the Antichrist will be a profoundly lawless man. There will be laws aplenty. Antichrist will simply ignore them and make up “the law” to benefit himself, his ideology and his politics as he goes along.
And in the Democrat Party we have a massive political organization who cheers that and wants more and more wrath brought upon this land that they so hate because this was once “One nation under God” and they hate God and His Christ more than they love their own lives.
That is why this man is coming and why they will believe him and worship him and take his mark on their right hands or on their foreheads:
“And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up. His power will be mighty, but not by his own power, And he will destroy to an extraordinary degree And prosper and perform his will; He will destroy mighty men and the holy people. And through his shrewdness He will cause deceit to succeed by his influence; And he will magnify himself in his heart, And he will destroy many while they are at ease….” — Daniel 8:23-25
Again, I’ve said this before and can simply quote myself because I’ve been consistently saying the same thing over and over again as the world prepares to be deceived by the coming beast:
The coming Antichrist will be a man of cunning words. The NIV in verse 23 describes the Antichrist as “a master of intrigue.” His soul will swim in deceit and deception and he will understand the “dark sentences” of deceiving lies that capture fallen humanity. And he will leverage his lies powerfully to destroy his enemies (i.e., the people of God who believe the Bible that liberals so rabidly despise). Interestingly the prophet Daniel is given wisdom to untangle mysteries such that men can know the truth; Antichrist has the opposite gift, the “shrewdness” (the Hebrew word is also translated WISDOM) to so tie the truth into so many knots that no man will be able to know the truth apart from God’s revealing. And of course since the coming Antichrist is to be ultimately revealed only after the Rapture of Jesus Christ’s Church on earth, there won’t be a lot of “God’s revealing” as Antichrist emerges to seize power. Which is to say the chronology appears to be this: 1) the Rapture in which every single human being on earth with the Holy Spirit who CAN know the truth is removed; 2) the Antichrist is revealed and seizes power with his lies to a godless, stupid world. (There WILL be believers during the Tribulation, but they will BECOME believers and of course there will be FAR too few to oppose Antichrist at the early point when he takes over the world).
And that sounds familiar, doesn’t it??? Because OBAMA is a man of deceit and lies and arrogant boasting like no man I have ever seen.
We are beginning to see now what this coming liar will look like and how he will make dishonesty and lies such an effective part of his political strategy. Because it’s easy to document that that is how Obama has seized so much power. Obama has CONSTANTLY lied to gain political advantage. As another example there is the Barack Obama who ran as the non-partisan candidate for president versus the most rabidly partisan president in all of American history. He lied. He simply lied about what the New York Times said was “the core of Senator Barack Obama’s presidential campaign.” I submit that you can readily recognize as demon-possessed any one who is morally insane enough to believe that Obama fulfilled that promise. And as yet another example, when he imposed the DREAM Act that failed to pass in the Senate and never passed in the House in open defiance of the Constitution, Obama declared that the DREAM Act “would be the right thing to do for our security.” Just an outright lie. But it worked. And now he’s lying again as hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrant children flood into America to take advantage of Obama’s lawlessness by blaming the fiasco on everything and everyone but himself.
Antichrist will be a man of deceit and lies and arrogant boasting. That’s what Daniel 8:25 (and other passages) teach. He will be a constant twister of words. And there will be no Fox News to try to remind you of what the man really said before he said whatever he decided to say next.
I’ve documented the malignant narcissist and incredibly arrogant man that Barack Obama is. But even the extremely liberal New York Times has acknowledged the stunning personal arrogance that is Barack Obama.
Antichrist will be so incredibly arrogant that he will actually believe he is God. Which may make him more humble than Barack Obama, who seems to believe he’s ABOVE God.
If you want to learn about the beast, about what kind of man he will be and how he will act, just watch Obama. And learn the essence of political evil from him.
We’re seeing in Barack Hussein Obama the death in America. But we’re also seeing the prime textbook example of how the coming Antichrist will deceive, slander and manipulate his way to total power.
One other thing: I used to believe that the Antichrist would be an incredibly capable leader; I now realize that is not true: Antichrist won’t be a great leader, but a great deceiver. Like Obama, Antichrist will be a LOUSY leader and his policies will fall apart and fail one after the other. But as a skilled liar and slanderer he will always redirect blame to some other party and the world will keep believing his lies and thinking if they just give Antichrist more power he’ll be able to overcome the resistance of the bad people (e.g. the Christians who come to faith after the Rapture during the Tribulation). So Antichrist will be able to seize more and more power and then be more and more and more incompetent with that power as he drives the world into collapse and finally into Armageddon
I know whom I have believed, and take my stand with Him and with His Word against all the forces and unholy power of a dark and wicked government that will only culminate in the ultimate spirit of godlessness otherwise known as the greatest act of government-imposed socialism otherwise known as the mark of the beast.
Right now, and until the nation collapses and the beast comes, every vestige of liberal Democrat power is a giant, vast reciprocating engine whose ever downward stroke makes America more and more wicked and more worthy of divine judgment and wrath.
I end with the words of The Word:
The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness. — 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12
