“Jesus replied, ‘Don’t let anyone mislead you, for many will come in My name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah.’ They will deceive many. And you will hear of wars and threats of wars, but don’t panic. Yes, these things must take place, but the end won’t follow immediately. Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in many parts of the world, as well as famines. But this is only the first of the birth pains, with more to come. “When these things begin to happen, watch out! You will be handed over to the local councils and beaten in the synagogues. You will stand trial before governors and kings because you are My followers. But this will be your opportunity to tell them about Me.'” — Mark 13:5-9
In this statement, Jesus predicted several things: He said 1) “Don’t let anyone mislead you, for many will come in My name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah.’ They will deceive many.” 2) You will hear of wars and rumors of wars…” 3) Nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom. 4) There will be natural disasters and famines like we’ve never seen. 5) And Christians will be handed over for official persecution by governments and by caliphates.
Jesus promised us that in the last days, many would come claiming to be Messiah. How many of these would be elected president of the United States???
Quoting David Axelrod, Senior Advisor to Obama, the man who marketed Obama to the world, David Axelrod: “He is the living, breathing apotheosis of the American melting pot,” enthused David Axelrod, who privately coined a nickname for his boss: “Black Jesus.”
Axelrod, as we know, isn’t alone. According to Klein, Micah Tillman, lecturer in philosophy at the Catholic University of America, called Obama “the Platonic philosopher king we’ve been looking for the past 2,400 years.” And no less an authority than Oprah has called him “The One.”
“It means that this is a whole new world. I think…I’ve been saying this before. You can divide history. BB Before Barack. AB After Barack.” — Spike Lee
“You are the instruments that God is going to use to bring about universal change, and that is why Barack has captured the youth. And he has involved young people in a political process that they didn’t care anything about. That’s a sign. When the Messiah speaks, the youth will hear, and the Messiah is absolutely speaking.”
“Brothers and sisters,” Farrakhan said, “Barack Obama to me, is a herald of the Messiah. Barack Obama is like the trumpet that alerts you something new, something better is on the way.”
Farrakhan points out that the man Nation of Islam followers refer to as “the Saviour,” Fard Muhammad, had a black father and a white mother, just as Obama did.
“A black man with a white mother became a saviour to us,” he said. “A black man with a white mother could turn out to be one who can lift America from her fall.” — Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, speaking on ‘Nation of Islam Saviours’ Day’, February 24, 2008
“Dismiss it all you like, but I’ve heard from far too many enormously smart, wise, spiritually attuned people who’ve been intuitively blown away by Obama’s presence – not speeches, not policies, but sheer presence – to say it’s just a clever marketing ploy, a slick gambit carefully orchestrated by hotshot campaign organizers who, once Obama gets into office, will suddenly turn from perky optimists to vile soul-sucking lobbyist whores, with Obama as their suddenly evil, cackling overlord.
Here’s where it gets gooey. Many spiritually advanced people I know (not coweringly religious, mind you, but deeply spiritual) identify Obama as a Lightworker, that rare kind of attuned being who has the ability to lead us not merely to new foreign policies or health care plans or whatnot, but who can actually help usher in a new way of being on the planet, of relating and connecting and engaging with this bizarre earthly experiment. These kinds of people actually help us evolve. They are philosophers and peacemakers of a very high order, and they speak not just to reason or emotion, but to the soul.
The unusual thing is, true Lightworkers almost never appear on such a brutal, spiritually demeaning stage as national politics. This is why Obama is so rare. And this why he is so often compared to Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr., to those leaders in our culture whose stirring vibrations still resonate throughout our short history.” — Mark Morford, SF Gate columnist, June 6, 2008
Newsweek editor Evan Thomas brought adulation over President Obama’s Cairo speech to a whole new level on Friday, declaring on MSNBC: “I mean in a way Obama’s standing above the country, above – above the world, he’s sort of God.”
Thomas, appearing on Hardball with Chris Matthews, was reacting to a preceding monologue in which Matthews praised Obama’s speech: “I think the President’s speech yesterday was the reason we Americans elected him. It was grand. It was positive. Hopeful…But what I liked about the President’s speech in Cairo was that it showed a complete humility…The question now is whether the President we elected and spoke for us so grandly yesterday can carry out the great vision he gave us and to the world.”
The mainstream media, Associated Press, Reuters, etc., REPEATEDLY and BRAZENLY deliberately continued this fabrication, depicting Obama with halo after halo after halo. Have other candidates for president played this messianic trick? Of course. BUT NEVER LIKE THIS. NEVER TO THIS DEGREE.
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.
I still remember the temple that the Democrat Party built to welcome its god. I still remember the Grecian columns in which this god walked among mortal man, I still recall the sick feeling as I watched the worshiping crowds adore him, praise him:
I could actually go on. But I believe I’ve made my case. Jesus was right. The Obama campaign played Obama as “the One,” as “the messiah,” as “Black Jesus,” as “sort of God, standing above the country, above the world.”
Now, even liberals are acknowledging that Barack Obama was the same, lying, dishonest political weasel that we’ve seen all to often. But that’s another story.
If you’re a Democrat, you already stand revealed as a proven Antichrist worshiper and it is only a matter of time when you fall in love with a new political god and worship him and take his mark on your right hand or on your forehead according to the prophetic description of how our political system will end in Revelation 13:16. I simply challenge you and defy you, Democrat, to show me anything even CLOSE to this coming from the Republican Party or any of it’s candidates. You show me this crap coming from Bush or McCain or Romney. You show me this or this or this.
You Democrats are literally TEN TIMES MORE MURDEROUS than Adolf Hitler or the Nazis. They murdered six million Jews in their death camps; YOU HAVE MURDERED SIXTY MILLION INNOCENT HUMAN BEINGS IN YOURS. And the day is coming when you will pay for your wickedness when God’s wrath washes over you as no tsunami wave as ever washed over anyone and carries you screaming into the hell you so richly deserve for your murder and your spirit of depraved perversion and your fanatic and criminal abuse of genuine justice.
Ben Carson compared America today to the rise of the Nazis in the 1930s. He’s been excoriated by the leftist media for that: they demand he retract his words so they can attack him for taking back what he said as much as they had attacked him for saying it in the first place. Despite the obvious fact that truer words have never been spoken.
Jesus was right as He described the last days and how they would come about as false messiahs demagogued their way to power and paved the way for the ultimate Antichrist who would lead the world to literal hell on earth during a seven-year period in which God gave a wicked people over to the demonic leader they truly deserved.
And we have seen The Rise, as Democrats proclaimed, “There is no God but Government, and Obama is Its Prophet!”
St. Paul described “the descent of man” into depravity as they first replaced God with godless evolution, professed themselves as wise when they were in reality becoming utter fools, and ultimately would become so toxic and so vile that they would do something that no culture on earth had ever done and exalt the perversion of homosexual sodomy as “marriage”:
Unbelief and Its Consequences
18For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. 20For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. 21For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures.
24Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. 25For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
26For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.
28And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, 29being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, 30slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; 32and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.
Jesus said that 2) we would hear more and more and more about wars and rumors of wars.
I was reading the Los Angeles Times this morning (Thursday, May 7, 2015) and here were the titles of the articles I saw as I looked through the main page:
Page A1: “Exercises signal NATO resolve against Russia”
Page A3: “Drug violence escalates: As elections approach, an army helicopter is shot down and a new cartel emerges”
Page A4: “4 to hang in Afghan mob killing: Eight are sentenced to prison in the beating and burning death of a woman”
Page A6: “Syrian president is ‘not worried’ despite setbacks” with the opening paragraph reading: “Syrian president Bashar Assad said Wednesday that he was “not worried” about the battlefield setbacks and exhorted supporters to avoid succumbing to “frustration” as the Syrian conflict rages on without an end in sight.”
Page A6: “Saudi-led airstrikes kill scores in Yemen”
Page A8 “NATO not taking threats lightly”
Page A9: “Saber-rattling signals NATO resolve.”
Page A9 Germany: “4 arrested in raids seeking extremists”
Page A9 Nigeria” Niger expels 3,000 refugees” with the first paragraph reading, “More than 3,000 fishermen and other refugees fleeing Boko Haram militants were expelled from neighboring Niger…”
Page A11: “Shooter likely more of a lone wolf” (in spite of the claim by Islamic State) regarding the terrorist attack on a free-speech event in Texas.
Of that last story, the truth is as amazing as it is terrifying. The New York Times reports the following:
The onslaught of recruitment propaganda has multiplied the number of online enthusiasts for the Islamic State in the United States, giving counterterrorism investigators the difficult task of deciding which are simply fantasizing in public and which might be planning violence.
“The ISIS guys are talking to these wannabes on Twitter all day long,” a senior law enforcement official said. “It’s like the devil is sitting on their shoulder saying, ‘Come on, they’re insulting the prophet, what are you going to do about it?’ ”
The official, who would speak about the continuing investigation only on condition of anonymity, said that although Mr. Simpson had long been under F.B.I. scrutiny, he had not appeared to be preparing for violence. “There are so many like him that you have to prioritize your investigations,” the official said.
The brief statement from the Islamic State did not claim that it had ordered the Texas attack, though it called the gunmen, Mr. Simpson, 30, and Nadir Hamid Soofi, 34, “two soldiers from the soldiers of the caliphate.”
The statement expressed hope that the men, who had been living in Phoenix, would be granted “the highest rank of paradise” and threatened that future action against the perceived enemies of Islam would be “worse and more bitter,” according to a translation by the Site Intelligence Group, which tracks extremist statements.
Those words, “There are so many like him” ought to chill your blood. Because of Obama’s monumental failure to do anything other than be a lying, slandering, deceiving demagogue rather than an actual leader, our system to deal with violence and terrorism and war is fundamentally and profoundly breaking down. The New York Times describes “Mr. Simpson, a convert to Islam with a long history of extremism.” The man had been tracked by authorities for years. But our liberal-dominated courts have made the system powerless to stop the avalanche of these murderers. The FBI is overwhelmed.
“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.” – Barack Hussein Obama
Militant Islam is rising. It is inevitable. And it is inevitable because the world and its leaders today are dominated by the abject moral cowardice of Barack Hussein Obama to confront reality when false narratives sound so much better to our itching years. Obama has proven utterly irrelevant to the world as Islamic State was born and grew powerful and rose to burn people alive right in front of our faces all because of his abject failed policies and his non-stop blathering uselessness.
It took Obama months beyond laughable to even so much as ACKNOWLEDGE that Christians were victims of these monsters as he enables them day after day, week after week, month after month.
Unmentioned are many other recent stories like this one about China creating artificial island after artificial island as they grab territory that has never been theirs (you know, just like Russia is defiantly doing). The US military is watching helplessly while it goes from “late” to “too late” to stop or deal with:
These missions have taken on new urgency as the U.S. military keeps a closer eye on China’s increasingly assertive territorial claims, including an unprecedented island-building campaign in the nearby South China Sea.
On any given day, U.S. aircraft bristling with cameras, sensors and advanced electronics crisscross the region, hunting submarines, surface ships and aircraft — and charting progress on massive landfills that have suddenly appeared from submerged reefs and shoals.
The fear is that these islands will provide bases for China to restrict air traffic or threaten vital shipping lanes.
The Navy’s patrol fleet has grown from 12 to 16 aircraft in the last three years and includes state-of-the-art P-8 Poseidons, militarized versions of Boeing 737s that are being deployed first to the Pacific.
“We go out, we watch, we look and we listen, to all things going on. And we do it routinely,” says Navy Capt. Mike Parker, who commands the patrol fleet. Parker said U.S. aircraft remain in international airspace throughout their missions.
He spoke to a USA TODAY reporter invited on a training mission aboard Pelican One.
U.S. officials have watched with alarm since China began its landfill operations in the South China Sea last year, creating artificial islands with astonishing speed.
Commercial satellite images show extensive landfill and construction on at least seven previously submerged reefs or atolls in the Spratly Islands group, located west of the Philippines.
Some of the new islands include runways that can accommodate China’s biggest military aircraft, along with port facilities and dozens of multistory buildings, according to the Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative, a research project sponsored by the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a Washington think tank.
“China is creating a ‘Great Wall of Sand’ with dredges and bulldozers,” Adm. Harry Harris, commander of the U.S. Pacific Fleet, warned in a speech in Australia on April 1. Harris said that raises “serious questions about Chinese intentions.”
We can watch Obama’s epic fail as a leader in slow, agonizing motion as Obama allows Iran to seize U.S.-flagged ships in what is clearly an act of war, as Iran violates the citizenship of Americans and arrests them one after another on trumped-up charges, as Iran spreads terror all over the world, as Iran having nearly achieved complete hegemony in the Middle East is now expanding to Latin America. as Iran calls for death to America. While Obama says, “We trust you! We are willing to compromise and cooperate and negotiate with every dictator and murderer and thug and anyone who isn’t a Republican! I will GIVE you nuclear weapons! Only PLEASE wait until I’m out of office!”
All Iran needs is time to build or buy ballistic missile technology to launch their nuclear warheads that even according to Obama they are 2-3 months away from and could clearly easily have at any moment they want them. Obama knew that truth for YEARS but lied and lied and lied to the American people as he rabidly pursued a deal with THE most untrustworthy regime on planet earth.
It has been a known, documented fact for at least a YEAR that Iran has been pursuing the ballistic missile technology necessary and ONLY necessary to launch their soon-to-be nuclear warheads. But what they hey?
The Word of God assured us more than 2,600 years ago that one day, in the last days, Russian and Iran would lead a confederacy of nations that are coincidentally today ALL Islamic nutjob states in a war of extermination against the state of Israel. And that the world would sit idly by and act just like Obama is doing now and do NOTHING but blather useless words according to Ezekiel 38:13.
The world will one day soon be bathed in blood as we see wars ignite the likes the human race has never seen. And it is all gathering right now.
At a point in time when population experts pegged the total world population at 183 million, St. John in the Book of Revelation prophesied the very region that could pull off such an army – “the kings of the east” – sending a demonic army of 200 million men across what has throughout history been the historically impassable Euphrates River toward their destiny of Armageddon.
Jesus said 3) “Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.”
Well, I just wrote about that. The word Jesus uses translated as “nation” is “ethnos.” “Nation will rise against nation” is more accurately, “Ethnic group will rise against ethnic group.” Or Race will rise against race.
And we’re seeing hot, flaming race rising against race all over America. And the polls document the fact that Americans overwhelmingly – to the tune of 96 percent – believe it will get worse and that it will happen in their own cities and towns.
Jesus declared 4) “There will be earthquakes in many parts of the world, as well as famines. But this is only the first of the birth pains, with more to come.”
Natural disasters, anyone? We have them in abundance like we have never before seen. We have a crippling historic drought in my state of California that is growing more and more terrible while we have floods elsewhere to fulfill what God declared would happen to a nation that abandoned Him: “I kept the rain from falling when your crops needed it the most. I sent rain on one town but withheld it from another. Rain fell on one field, while another field withered away” (Amos 4:7). Earthquakes? The world is watching Nepal reel from the recent aftermath of one as we speak, with thousands dead.
I know how godless man reasons, because the Bible tells me: “They will say, “Where is this ‘coming’ he promised? Ever since our ancestors died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation” (2 Peter 3:4). But I’ve been pointing out that these same godless people ignorantly declare the truth of God’s Word everyday as they exploit every phenomena as “global warming” or “climate change” when it is just one more part of what our LORD told us would happen as we reached the end of days before divine judgment plunged the world into living hell.
And Jesus promised believers 5) “watch out! You will be handed over to the local councils and beaten in the synagogues. You will stand trial before governors and kings because you are My followers.” And we are watching it happen all over the world as Islamic State leads planet earth in the slaughter of Christians, as more Christians have been martyred these last few years than in all of history combined, as the Obama system of “justice” persecutes and punishes and terrorizes Christians for taking a stand against the sodomy of marriage and says that as Christian bakers they won’t bake cakes for gay weddings and as Christian wedding photographers they won’t depict the perversion of God-ordained marriage and as Christian pizza restaurateurs they won’t allow their property be used to celebrate homosexual perversion of marriage that has always throughout all of history been the union of one man and one woman.
The beast is coming. War like we have never even had nightmares of before is coming. And we’re watching it metastasize right now under Obama.
“The mystery of lawlessness” is that as all of these horrors engulf us there will be nothing the righteous can do about it to stop it. We stand dismayed but the Bible said these “perilous times” were coming. We were foretold that “Many will be purified, cleansed, and refined by these trials. But the wicked will continue in their wickedness, and none of them will understand. Only those who are wise will know what it means” (Daniel 12:10).
