When Barack Obama was elected president, I congratulated him by posting a picture of a nuclear bomb explosion on my personal blog before I started this separate political avenue. Several people were unhappy with that analogy. I was metaphorically speaking. Who would have guessed I was predicting things to come?
As the days drag on, it may prove to be the most accurate depiction of that historical moment. A sign of the times...on numerous fronts.
Barack Obama is proving to be a disastrous presidency. His foreign policy initiatives are beyond flawed and have made us more vulnerable than at any time in our nations history (can you believe the number of foiled terrorists plot within the past several months? Chicago, Dallas, North Carolina, Denver, NYC, etc.). The despots that have ruled in far away lands are using the Obama Administration as a doormat when it comes to the national scene. We are now an international joke. We have caved to the very essence of an evil ideology. It is no surprised that these were the same despots that were pulling for "The One" to capture the election. Did you vote for Barack? You were in great company :\ These world leaders knew Obama had no spine and lacked the political capital to engage in any meaningful negotiations or dialog. He is inept beyond explanation on many of today's pressing issues.
Under Barack Obama's watch, we are literally months (maybe even weeks or days) from witnessing a global catastrophe in the Middle East. Obama has allowed Iran to, almost over night, grow into a potential Armageddon accelerator. He has distance the United States from our only true ally in the East (probably even the world) and has proven why the United States is not mentioned in Revelations. When the U.S. stops blessing Israel, God stops blessing the United States. Not to get too Biblical in this post, but the prophecy of Christ's return is unfolding before our very eyes. The table has been set and there is almost nothing that we, as a human race, can do (I'll elaborate on eschatology another time). It is truly amazing to be witnessing these worldly events.
The following is from Joel Rosenberg and his take on the Apocalyptic storm brewing in the Middle East:
Events are moving so quickly in the epicenter it can be difficult to keep track of, much less understand the big picture. So here it is in a sentence: An apocalpytic storm is forming over the Middle East.
Consider the data points:
Iran has just been caught secretly building a 2nd uranium enrichment facilityon a military base in the religious capital of Iran, a city known as Qom;
A growing number of Western military analysts say the design of this new facility — and its secrecy, and location — clearly indicates it was being built by Iran for the purpose of creating nuclear weapons;
Iran has thus been caught in its third lie since 2002 with regards to building secret nuclear development facilities in Natanz, Arak, and now Qom;
Ahmadinejad refused four times during his NBC News interview last week to rule out the building of nuclear weapons;
A.Q. Khan — the father of Pakistan’s nuclear weapons development program – has just admitted selling advanced nuclear weapons blueprints years ago to Iran for millions of dollars;
The latest IAEA report indicates Iran has enough low-enriched uranium (LEU) to produce enough high-enriched uranium (HEU) by 2010 to produce two nuclear weapons;
Iran has just spent the weekend testing “its most advanced missiles” capable of reaching Israel;
Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad began his speech to the U.N. by praying for Allah to hasten the coming of the Islamic Messiah, which according to his theology requires the destruction of Judeo-Christian civilization as we know it.
Ahmadinejad spoke more openly about his End of the World theology during his U.N. speech than ever before;
Ahmadinejad was asked for the first time by an American reporter to describe his relationship with the “Twelfth Imam” and admitted on camera that he is communicating with this mystical Shia messiah;
Humanly speaking, war is coming. The West does not seem determined enough to stop Iran from getting the Bomb. So unless the Lord intervenes, Israel might soon feel compelled to launch a preemptive strike against Iran. It won’t be easy, and the entire region could go up in flames.
The stakes couldn’t be higher. So on this day of Yom Kippur, let us commit ourselves to prayer and fasting for the peace of Jerusalem and the physical and spiritual salvation of all of Israel and all of Iran.
A question of reality: How many Americans are going to die because of the foreign policy and national security incompetence of the Obama administration?
Joel is right. We must pray for the salvation of this world. Lord knows, Obama can't lead us to the Promised Land, in fact, he's driving us in the opposite direction.
