OBAMA SEEKING THE POSITION OF UNITED NATIONS SECRETARY GENERAL

Before leaving the house for church yesterday (1/10/2016), I skimmed a brief article linked to Facebook indicating that the current president of the United States might be seeking the position of United Nations Secretary General.

Obama interested in becoming UN Secretary General

This is probably a hoax was my initial thought. I’ll have to research this after church. After church, my research indicated that Obama’s seeking the position of United Nations Secretary General had been reported in various media outlets, including, but not limited to, the Jerusalem Post and townhall.com, and the Washington Times. Yes, some of these outlets are conservative leaning, but the number of outlets carrying this story means that there must be some truth to it.

Like most of us, the first time I heard Barak Obama speak was at the 2004 Democrat National Convention. At the time he was an Illinois State Senator. Some of the things he said gave me an uneasy feeling. Furthermore, the democrats were slobbering all over themselves and all that was on the news the next day was Barak Obama, that state senator from Illinois. I was also disturbed by the way folks seemed almost in a state of worship toward him.

Contained his Obama’s acceptance speech for the Democrat party’s nomination for President in 2008 is the following: “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 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…” To me, this sounded a little “out there.” Had a Republican said something like this, the liberal media would have immediately declared him or her mentally imbalanced.

The way that democrats/liberals were worshipping this guy during the campaign was also scary. After being elected president, he was immediately awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for virtually doing nothing. The Norwegian committee indicated that he was accolated because it was anticipated that he would evolve into an outstanding world leader for the cause of peace. I’ve never heard of such…getting an award before actually doing anything to qualify for it. People all over the world seem to fall in lockstep with the new U.S. President, who was often depicted as Christ-like or Messianic.

In the Bible, Jesus said that he would come again. While no one except God, the Father, knows when that day will come, followers of Christ are given signs for which to watch that will signal his coming. The Bible also indicates that there will be many false Christs and false prophets that will come and go. It is also indicated in the Bible that there will be one false Christ that will arise and will be anointed ruler over the world before Christ’s second coming. This ruler will make war against Israel and those who are believers in Christ. This false Christ will be a liar and deceiver and cause many on earth to bow down and worship him.

How many people out there love Barak Obama, but couldn’t intelligently discuss his policies or his political philosophy?

Barak Obama is half black and how many blacks worship him, but couldn’t intelligently discuss any of his policies. I confronted one such Obama worshipper who is a black liberal. After the passage of Obamacare in 2010, she said that she loved Obamacare when it hadn’t even “kicked in” yet. I also confronted this person and told her that I hoped that she wasn’t worshipping Obama just because he’s half black (I have just as much in common ethnically with him as she does). She replied, “Oh no. I just love what he’s doing.” This was really scared me. For crying out loud, there were areas where I didn’t agree with Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, and George W. Bush. An intelligent, politically astute person, is not going to agree with his or her elected officials on everything. If you do, you’re a light weight.

While this president has indicated that he practices Christianity, he touts Islam much more than he touts Christianity.

He’s continually lectured the American people that we shouldn’t judge an entire religion/philosophy by the acts of a few people. He has also made no effort to rescue those Christians who are being persecuted in foreign nations.

On the tenth anniversary of 9/11, while Obama was reading from the Bible at Ground Zero, he seemed uncomfortable. Those of us who grew up going to church and reading scripture develop an ebb and flow in our reading. Obama did not have this ebb and flow. His reading was choppy, making a few of us observe that he was indeed out of place reading from the Bible. Yes, I know he sang the hymn, “Amazing Grace” at the funeral of the nine church members who were shot in Charleston. However, that doesn’t change the fact that he appeared very uncomfortable reading scripture on 9/11/2011.

The job of the president of the United States is undoubtedly the most difficult job in the world. No president in my lifetime has come out of it without having aged substantially. When finishes his or her term as president, why would you want to take on something else that is difficult and carries great responsibility? As a former president, you are expected to make speeches, write your memoirs, perform certain tasks that the current president might assign to you, etc. You’ve run the race, you deserve some solitude and respect.

So why would any president soon to leave office want to jump back into the fire?

Some Obama-zombies might say that he’s still young and energetic, perfectly capable of another responsible position. Most presidents are older than 55 when they leave office, so they’re already senior citizens or about to be senior citizens. Still, it’s very strange.

In my above statements, I’m not drawing any conclusions. While the Bible explains a lot of things, it also leaves a lot of things unexplained. There are things we don’t know and will not know until Jesus returns to earth and the believers in Christ are transformed.

BE ASTUTE AND NOTICE THE SIGNS

In the Bible in the Book of Genesis (Chapter 12, verse 3), it is said: “I (God) will bless those who bless you (Israel) and will curse those who curse you (Israel).” It doesn’t get much plainer than that. According to ahphanews.com, the Bible warns that the destiny of the world is inseparable from Israel and Jerusalem. The Bible says God would one day re-gather the children of Israel back into their land from among many nations around the world. The Bible also warns that God would then make Jerusalem a world trouble spot and that all nations of the world will turn against Israel. Furthermore, the Bible warns that Gaza will be forsaken.

On May 14, 1948, British forces pulled out of Palestine. That afternoon Jewish leaders assembled at the Tel Aviv Museum to sign the Israeli declaration of Independence and announce the creation of the first modern Jewish state. If you were 15 at the time and remember this, you would be 82 now. Thus, I doubt many of my readers would remember this prophetic day. From what I’ve heard, though, there was not much hoop-la from clergy and Christian leaders.

In the middle of August, 2005, Israeli troops began the forced evacuation of thousands of Jewish settlers from the Gaza strip after a deadline for them to leave had expired. Israeli Prime Minister at the time, Ariel Sharon, implemented the evacuation.

Does anyone know what happened a week later? Can you say Hurricane Katrina? That’s right, Hurricane Katrina made landfall on the Mississippi Gulf coast. In New Orleans, levies were breached causing major flooding and destruction. American citizens were suffering beyond belief. In fact, the aftermath of Katrina was referred to as a disaster of Biblical proportions by many journalists.

The Gaza withdrawal was backed by the U.S. government. According to World Net Daily, some Middle East analysts and senior Israeli politicians entirely attributed the evacuation plan to pressure from the American establishment.

I was a current events follower in 2005 and remember pursing my lips when watching TV news coverage of the Gaza evacuation. I was particularly distraught with the uprooting of bodies from the area’s Jewish cemeteries. And then along comes Katrina.

World Net Daily documented a number of events that one might say drew parallels between the evacuation of the Gaza strip and Hurricane Katrina. One parallel indicated that President Bush was from Texas and Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, was from Alabama. Both were vocal supporters of the Gaza evacuation. Katrina hit the states between Texas and Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi. There was also damage done in Alabama, including a downed tree in my back yard.

Other parallels from World Net Daily include the following: Many residents of Jewish Gaza climbed to their rooftops to escape the threat of expulsion, while residents of the Gulf Coast climbed on their own rooftops to protect themselves from the rising waters. Jewish Gaza homes described as beautiful and charming were demolished this week by Israel’s military. Once beautiful homes in New Orleans now lie in ruins.

Some are going to say that this is coincidence. Others are going to say that I’m crazy and so is anybody who remotely thinks that Katrina wreaked havoc in the United States because the U.S. was pushing the Gaza evacuation.

The current administration is in negotiations with the Middle Eastern country of Iran regarding their nuclear enrichment program. Remember Iran has indicated that it wants to destroy Israel. The administration has also removed Iran plus Hezbollah and the Muslim Brotherhood from the United States’ terrorist watch list.

And if that’s not enough, the current administration used tax payer dollars to support Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s left wing opponent, Isaac Herzog, in the recent election. Now that PM Netanyahu soundly defeated Mr. Herzog, the current President is suggesting that he’s going to lift U.S. sanctions on Iran and put them on Israel.

According to Major Garrett of CBS, speaking to radio talk show host, Rush Limbaugh, President Obama has ordered his top advisors to seek alternatives to direct talks between Israelis and Palestinians. The leading option for the White House, and one that would amount to a significant reversal of American policy, would be to allow the United Nations Security Council to pass a resolution recognizing a Palestinian state. The White House has worked with Israel in the past to block such maneuvers, arguing it would unnecessarily inflame Israeli political passions and undermine a fragile peace process. Letting the United Nations Security Council proceed now appears to be a live option. Re-elected PM Netanyahu has said that the Palestinians would not get their state under current circumstances.

Are we turning our backs on Israel? Many other countries already have. The Bible says that all nations of the world will turn against Israel. The United States has definitely been Israel’s staunchest ally on the planet. Is that about to change? Are other Israeli allies going to follow the path of the United States?

I’m writing this as a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ and a believer that there are no coincidences where the Lord and his word are concerned. His word is immutable.

I’m not saying that the world is going to end tomorrow or anytime soon. Only God knows that day. But as Christians, we must be aware of the signs that are told to us in scripture, and the events of our days.
