There’s a passage in the New Testament, 2 Thessalonians 2:7, that describes “the mystery of lawlessness” and how it will increase in the final days as the Antichrist appears and the restraining presence of the Church is taken out of the way.
We’re seeing it in the world right now.
And the mystery of lawlessness is what makes decent people ask, “How can this be happening? Why isn’t anyone doing anything to stop it?”
Of course, Barack Obama isn’t a decent person and so he’s not asking such questions.
We are watching a cancer take root and grow and spread across the Middle East like nothing we’ve ever seen before:
CBS/AP/February 10, 2015, 5:47 PM
20,000 foreign fighters flock to Syria, Iraq to join terrorists
WASHINGTON – Foreign fighters are streaming into Syria and Iraq in unprecedented numbers to join the Islamic State or Iraq and Syria (ISIS) or other extremist groups, including at least 3,400 from Western nations among 20,000 from around the world, U.S. intelligence officials say in an updated estimate of a top terrorism concern. […]
It’s that word “unprecedented” that ought to bother you. We’ve never seen anything like this in the entire history of terrorism. Islamic State is a cancer that is exploding while we have a dithering liar who refuses to do anything about a problem he says isn’t really even much of a problem. Just like it was a problem on September 10, 2001.
Obama’s own handpicked officials have proclaimed this for MONTHS:
Islamic State threat ‘beyond anything we’ve seen': Pentagon
By Missy Ryan
WASHINGTON Thu Aug 21, 2014 5:47pm EDT
(Reuters) – The sophistication, wealth and military might of Islamic State militants represent a major threat to the United States that may surpass that once posed by al Qaeda, U.S. military leaders said on Thursday.
“They are an imminent threat to every interest we have, whether it’s in Iraq or anywhere else,” Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel told reporters at the Pentagon.
Hagel’s assessment of Islamic State, which gained strength during Syria’s civil war and swept into northern Iraq earlier this summer, sounded a note of alarm several days after the group posted a video on social media showing one of its fighters beheading an American hostage kidnapped in Syria.
Asked if the hardline Sunni Muslim organization posed a threat to the United States comparable to that of the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, Hagel said it was “as sophisticated and well-funded as any group we have seen.”
“They are beyond just a terrorist group. They marry ideology, a sophistication of … military prowess. They are tremendously well-funded. This is beyond anything we’ve seen.”
Reality doesn’t matter to Barack Obama and the demons that scream inside his rodent soul. He is immune from facts because he has whatever “truth” Lucifer is giving him, instead; he is immune from advice from his experts because he is an arrogant malignant narcissist who believes he knows better than his experts. Even according to his own liberal allies.
It doesn’t matter whether your top official is Robert Gates or Leon Panetta – who blames Obama for everything we’re currently seeing melting down in Iraq and Syria; if you have a clue, you know Obama has failed America in an incredibly dangerous way.
As we speak, Obama is vowing that Islamic State will lose – while doing virtually NOTHING to actually fight them. And anybody who says we’re hurting Islamic State is just a fool spouting gibberish that ignores reality. Because as I have already documented, they are growing exponentially in an “unprecedented” way never before seen in the history of man.
During the Gulf War, the allies averaged 11,ooo sorties a day. Under Obama with Islamic State, we’re averaging SEVEN sorties a day. Obama – who MOCKED “the coalition of the willing” that Bush assembled to destroy the regime of Saddam Hussein – has virtually ZERO allies in an operation euphemistically titled “Inherent Resolve” that in reality has nothing of the kind.
Now, that last article that described Jordan’s role has since been modified by the hideous burning alive of one of their captured pilots by Islamic State. But again, Jordan is vowing to fight these beasts to the very gates of hell and executing their captured terrorist prisoners, and what is Obama doing? FREEING terrorist prisoners while trying to shut down the very facility of Guantanamo Bay that was created to imprison them in the first place.
What a disgrace. There’s a saying, “Evil triumphs when good men do nothing.” And that’s certainly true. The ONLY way that doesn’t apply to Barack Obama is that he is nothing even close to approaching “a good man.” But he is certainly doing nothing and evil is certainly triumphing.
Obama wants to claim that he’s like a big city mayor fighting crime, and that terrorism is nothing worse than criminals being criminals. The damn fool doesn’t realize that criminals don’t try to murder as many people as they can as horribly as they can just to watch them scream and die in the hopes that their cult of death will become transcendent in the world.
Obama – who of course claimed the world was going to hell just a few years ago when George W. Bush was president – now claims that he believes the world has become better and better and that his messiahship has “fundamentally transformed” the world into a beatific Utopia. Which is another way of pointing out the fact that Barack Obama is either the most cynical man who ever lived, or he has a messianic complex that makes Hitler’s look meager in comparison. Either alternative is truly terrifying for a world in crisis.
But this country has always been built both through an individual initiative, but also a sense of some common purpose. And if there’s one message I want to deliver to young people like a Tumblr audience is, don’t get cynical. Guard against cynicism. I mean, the truth of the matter is that for all the challenges we face, all the problems that we have, if you had to be — if you had to choose any moment to be born in human history, not knowing what your position was going to be, who you were going to be, you’d choose this time. The world is less violent than it has ever been. It is healthier than it has ever been. It is more tolerant than it has ever been. It is better fed then it’s ever been. It is more educated than it’s ever been.
Terrible things happen around the world every single day, but the trend lines of progress are unmistakable. And the reason is, is because each successive generation tries to learn from previous mistakes and pushes the course of history in a better direction. And the only thing that stops that is if people start thinking that they don’t make a difference and they can’t make changes. And that’s fed in our culture all the time.
I can only imagine Obama shared that magic helicopter ride with discredited NBC anchor Brian Williams.
And nine months later, after that JV team has ravaged and burned and murdered across the Middle East, Obama’s messianic faith in himself has not dimmed:
Obama also contended the “trajectory of this planet overall is one toward less violence, more tolerance, less strife, less poverty.”
How can this fool think this way? How could this fool have been elected not once but twice? “The mystery of lawlessness” that we were told would begin to grow large and powerful in the very last days, is how.
An amazing thing about Barack Obama is how even when he appears to be saying the right thing, he is actually leading the way to pure, demonic evil.
In his statement about the murder of yet another American Citizen at the hands of our JV Team extraordinaire, Obama ends by claiming:
ISIL is a hateful and abhorrent terrorist group whose actions stand in stark contrast to the spirit of people like Kayla. On this day, we take comfort in the fact that the future belongs not to those who destroy, but rather to the irrepressible force of human goodness that Kayla Mueller shall forever represent.
“… the irrepressible force of human goodness…?”
Let me point out the fact that no genuine Christian in the entire history of the world has ever said that, because the Bible presents a very, very different message about “human goodness”:
- Surely I was sinful at birth,
sinful from the time my mother conceived me. — Psalm 51:5
- for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God – Romans 3:23
- Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned— Romans 5:12
- But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. — Romans 5:8
- All of us have become like one who is unclean,
and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags;
we all shrivel up like a leaf,
and like the wind our sins sweep us away. — Isaiah 64:6
- Indeed, there is no one on earth who is righteous,
no one who does what is right and never sins. — Ecclesiastes 7:20
- The fool says in his heart,
“There is no God.”
They are corrupt, and their ways are vile;
there is no one who does good.
God looks down from heaven
on all mankind
to see if there are any who understand,
any who seek God.
Everyone has turned away, all have become corrupt;
there is no one who does good,
not even one. — Psalm 53:1-3
The Bible and the Judeo-Christian worldview teach the precise OPPOSITE of what Barack Obama – who had to be corrected as to which religion he was an adherent of and had faith in - believes.
Obama doesn’t believe in the reality of human sin and the fact that mankind is doomed apart from the grace of a redeeming God. Christ died for nothing, on Obama’s profoundly NON-Christian view.
Frankly, Obama believes as the most radical Muslims believe; he believes in the intrinsic goodness of the government that forces people to live a “godly” life.
Do you know what I call “the irrepressible force of human goodness”? I call it a fist raised in defiance at God with the proclamation of, “We don’t need you! Our goodness and our perfection is IRREPRESSIBLE!!!”
Barack Obama is a liar and the truth is not in him. And that is why he is such a fool who has bought the empty philosophies and the high-sounding nonsense – see Colossians 2:8 – of his own blathering rhetoric.
After all, “Children just aren’t going to know what snow is.” I mean, right?
Boston Buried by Snow Again as ‘Absurd’ Winter Drags On
By Erin McClam and M. Alex Johnson
Boston is buried again.
The city was hammered Monday by its third winter storm in two weeks, and records fell with the snow.
Counting the 20 inches of snow that had fallen at Logan International Airport since late Saturday, there was 37 inches on the ground, beating a 1996 record for the greatest snow depth in Boston.
Over the past 30 days, Boston has recorded more than 69 inches of snow, easily topping the previous record of 58.8 inches from Jan. 9 to Feb. 7, 1978. And with a month and a half of winter still to go, this season is already one of the city’s 10 snowiest winters on record, at 73.9 inches and counting, the National Weather Service said. City officials said crews have used up almost 58,000 tons of salt already this season.
The National Weather Service forecast as much as 3 feet of snow across the state by Tuesday night, when the storm is expected to clear.
“We’ve never seen the likes of this here in Boston,” Mayor Marty Walsh said. “We’ve gotten whacked pretty good over the last, literally, 13 days.”
The snow was causing another problem: the danger of structural collapse. […]
Either Obama and all of his pseudo-science-spouting fool friends don’t know their heads from their anuses, or else climate change is destroying the world as it crucifies children, rapes women, beheads Westerners and savagely buries and burns its victims alive.
The Bible teaches that in the very last days, the world’s climates WILL go haywire. And just as in the Old Testament, we have the same murderous terrorists who were once known as the Assyrians come back to murder in the same vicious ways in the very same part of the world.
They’re back, folks. Because the wrath of God is about to be revealed in the form of a big-government leader known as the Antichrist or the beast. This man will do what liberals have dreamed about for decades: he will take over the entire economy of the world and impose a mark such that no one can buy or sell without his government’s consent. Because you want your socialism and you’re going to GET your socialism right before you burn in hell forever and ever:
He required everyone–small and great, rich and poor, free and slave–to be given a mark on the right hand or on the forehead. And no one could buy or sell anything without that mark, which was either the name of the beast or the number representing his name. — Revelation 13:16-17
Meanwhile, the mystery of lawlessness is picking up skids as Obama greases the skids of evil.
