Barack Barry Soetoro Hussein Obama, the anointed one, continues to make strides in consolidating a state religion, weeks prior to the official start of his second term. Louie Giglio has been eliminated as the one to bring the benediction to the inaugeral because he believes the biblical view of sodomy. He was forced to withdraw because the LGBT does not think he is PC. …..and we all know that Obama places PC far above God and the biblical/true view of marriage! As you may recall, Franklin Graham was likewise not allowed to lead at the National Day of Prayer because after 9/11 he had the nerve and audacity to call Islam an evil religion. I have never seen a former superpower and global world leader falling faster than our nation is. That is, in regards to our Judeo Christian ethic and morals upon which we were built, our nations’ economy, our military superiority, and our global fear and respect we use to receive. The business Hobby Lobby, founded by born again Christians, starting January 1, 2013, has to pay huge fines daily if they refuse to sell contraceptives. These fines cannot be paid and the intent is for them to compromise their faith or to close down. Likewise last year private Christian hospitals were told that they had to go against the doctrine of their faith and provide birth control. Hey! This is not Pakistan or Sudan. I believe that we are at the threshold of radical directives that will never cease while the enlightened one is in office. If you are following the news as of late, you realize that his executive/presidential orders will supercede the second amendment if he has his way. Obama has no desire to work with congress, compromise, etc. He is full of hubris and will take our nation away from our founding principles and into his own world view for us. I have never seen this mindset in any of our previous presidents. Many Bible scholars have noted that there are parallels between Obama’s mindset and that of the Antichrist. Note the two following passages, they speak for themselves: Daniel 7:25 “He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, shall persecute the saints of the Most High, and shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand….” Here is yet another passage referring to the Beast (Antichrist), yet similarities can be seen in the mindset of our president: Revelation 13:17 “and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or name of the beast, or the number of his name.” This scripture may have seemed farfetched to you in years gone by. How about now? Is this not what Adolf Hitler did to the Jews in the 1930’s in Nazi Germany? They were marginalized from the society, ostracized, persecuted and finally six million were killed in the Final Solution. Barack Obama is at the threshold of instituting a one size fits all state religion. Anyone who would see sodomy, abortion, fornication, and the mandatory use and sale of contraceptives as sinful, will not fit in. Christians will not be able to transact, buy, sell or negotiate without going against their consciences. In this atmosphere, persecution is a given. The only church that will escape this persecution will be the false, apostate, emerging church with their lies and watered down doctrine. The true church, like pastor/theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer in Nazi Germany, will suffer persecution. Please note that many (most?) Christian leaders are fearful of standing for righteousness, and prefer to go with the flow in order not to ruffle feathers, rock the boat and risk being persecuted. Many believe that if the Lord tarries, the true church could once again be driven underground to home church, etc. If this would happen, my prayer is that I would meet you there!
