History Will Show Barack Obama Sides With Evil Everytime

History Will Show Barack Obama Sides With Evil Everytime

Barack Obama has taken his fair share of parting shots at America, at decency, and sided with what is wrong as opposed to what is right.  After spitting in the eye of every Jew on the planet for the last 30 plus days, Obama has now commuted the sentences of nearly 1400 criminals.

The latest, Bradley Manning, the Army Specialist that divulged classified information to Wikileaks, and thus put people’s lives at risk, had his sentence commuted by none other than Barack Obama himself.  This is a man (Manning), who is mentally ill and was able to get us, the American taxpayers, to pay for his hormone therapy to turn himself into a woman.  Of course, he never can be one because you cannot alter DNA, but that is for another discussion (or maybe not because frankly, it’s a gross thing to think about).

What we witnessed today in commuting the sentence of a man who compromised US Intelligence, is just further proof of a pattern with this outgoing President. Barack Obama, since day one in office, has stood on the side of immorality.  He sides with terrorists by releasing them from prison only to see them return to the battlefield and hurt innocent people.  Obama pushed forward the homosexual agenda, by misusing his position of power to promote gay marriage.

This lame duck President decided to negotiate a nuclear agreement with Iran, and kept Israel in the dark for years while the negotiating went on behind their backs.  Again, a country who swore to “wipe Israel off the map” he decided to negotiate with!  Of course the pinnacle of his antisemitism was the snub in the UN last month.  This President for his entire two terms in office has thrown law enforcement under the bus, by meddling in local law enforcement’s work at protecting the public, by painting them as blood thirsty, racist animals.

Of course, we cannot forget that this President demonstrated zero leadership in the wake of the intelligence debacle that was Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.  Her level of violation of our national security laws was literally unprecedented in terms of her complete and utter stupidity in handling classified information.  Yet, not one time did this President use his office to bring down the full force of the law against her.  You would think that given her being a former rival, he could cut ties, but I guess the bond of Democrats supersedes all areas of decency and morality.

Therefore, it should come as no surprise that Bradley Manning is going to get out of jail in just a little over 3 months from now, after divulging 270,000 classified and unclassified documents to Wikileaks.  Take a look at the following quote from a news article regarding this travesty of justice.

In a statement posted on the White House’s website, the Administration states that “we must remember that clemency is an extraordinary remedy, granted only after the President has concluded that a particular individual has demonstrated a readiness to make use of his or her second chance.”

Let me get this straight.  So the President thinks that someone who put on our nation’s uniform, swore an oath to defend her, even unto the death, and then summarily turned his back on everything he promised, divulged our nation’s secrets, and most likely put other servicemen and servicewomen, along with various other intelligence assets around the world in mortal danger, should get a second chance?  Funny, because usually a traitor, which Manning absolutely is, does not get a second chance.  How he’s alive today is another testament that we as a nation have lost our backbone when it comes to dishing out punishment for violating the nation’s trust.

However, that is what this President does.  He is without honor.  He is without decency.  He is the most un-American President in US History, and no I’m not harking back to the birther argument by saying that.  Instead of standing up for the rule of law, instead of standing up for what is the natural and moral order of things in a civil society, instead of standing up and should to shoulder with our ally Israel, instead of backing our nation’s military by properly and rightfully letting traitors rot in prison for their full term, he chooses to side with the opposite.  In the simplest of explanations, he sides with evil, and bear in mind, America elected him twice.  What does that say about our nation?

In three days time, Barack Obama will vacate the White House, and a new President will take his place. From this blogger’s point of view, he cannot leave soon enough.  Every moment that he continues to stay in that honorable house at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, he soils the sanctity of the Office of President of the United States of America. Unfortunately, he has chosen to take up residence in Washington DC after he leaves office, so that he can continue his legacy of interference and general being a pain in the neck.  My greatest hope is that America will ignore this man once he is out of office, and focus on trying to piece back together this great nation.  I hope that this is a shared hope by all my fellow Americans.

Donald Trump is not a saint, and I resent members of the evangelical community that try to paint him as such.  However, I believe that Donald Trump loves America.  I believe that he respects the Oval Office, and I believe him when he says that this country is an absolute disaster.  I am hopeful that he will respect the rule of law, and work to make this country great again for all Americans.  Let’s pray for our incoming President-elect that he will listen to the voice of G-d and do what He wills.  That he will choose to side with what is right.

Shalom

Why We Should Pray For Israel

Why We Should Pray For Israel

As I am writing this blog article over Thanksgiving weekend here in America, that nation of Israel is literally on fire right now.  While the reports are still coming in, what we do know is that the fires that are raging in and around Haifa were in fact acts of arson.  Thousands have been evacuated and over 700 homes have been destroyed.  We really need to say some special prayers for Israel right now.

That leads me to the point of this blog article, which is, why should we as believers pray for Israel?  Is this something that we are biblically commanded to do?  Also, why does it even matter?  The reason why I am writing about this is that I am seeing an alarming trend among believers of having an indifferent to an “I don’t care” attitude towards the Jewish state.  If you are a believer reading this article, I strongly encourage you at this very moment to pray to G-d for understanding about this subject, and not react with emotions, but with the spirit and wisdom of our L-rd Yeshua.

First, is praying for Israel something we are biblically commanded to do?  The simple answer is a resounding “yes”!  The bible says in the book of Pslam 122:6:  “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.  May those who love you be secure.”  This is a clear example that not only should we actually pray for Israel, but that by doing so, we ourselves will be safe and that G-d will be pleased with us.  Jerusalem is the city where G-d Himself chose to establish His physical presence here on Earth in regards to the Holy Temple.

Staying on that subject for a moment, there will be a new Jerusalem that will come down from heaven as we read in the book of Revelation 21:1-2.  Therefore, we must understand that Jerusalem now, and the Jerusalem to come, is the holy dwelling place of G-d Almighty and His Son Yeshua.  The very name of the city means “peace” (from root word shalom) and since He is the Prince of Peace, why would we not pray for the nation of Israel as a whole and the city of Jerusalem?

Another reason to pray for Israel, is that by blessing Israel, we in turn will be blessed.  In Genesis 12, G-d tells Avraham, “I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you.  And in you all the families of the Earth will be blessed.”  That’s pretty clear cut.  When we pray for Israel, be it for peace, for protection, for prosperity, we are in fact blessing Israel.  G-d says Himself that when we do we will be blessed as well.  Who does not want to be blessed?

To answer “Why does it matter?” I believe it has already been answered.  However, lets address this from another perspective of those who choose not to bless the nation of Israel.  Clearly the alternative is that if we are not blessing Israel through our prayers, our speech, and our conduct, then by default, we are cursing the nation of Israel.  In this modern era, the most noticeable way that I am seeing in terms of not blessing Israel is an apathy or indifference towards the Jewish state.

That indifference comes about with attitudes like some of the following things I have heard people say.

“I look at it this way.  I’ve got no business over there.”

“Well, there will be a new Jerusalem.”

Probably the most shocking is, utter silence from believers on the topic of Israel.  I have asked for people that I know, who are believers, to join with me in praying for the peace of Israel, or maybe bring up the topic of Israel and literally will hear nothing but silence.  What is clear from such behavior is that they do not care.  They do not see the need because honestly, many believers in Yeshua think that it was the Jews that killed Him, and thus, while they will not admit it outright, there is an undercurrent of resentment to downright hatred of the Jews.  That type of resentment or hatred has a name: antisemitism.

These are bold statements to make, and I have had some people tell me, “anti-Semite” is a strong word.  Comments such as these are typically a way for someone to shame the person who said it, because the person hearing it thinks it’s offensive to say.  What they do not realize or recognize is that anti-Semitic behavior or rhetoric is itself offensive.  Therefore, if someone is acting in an anti-Semitic way, what else is one to call such a person?

Back to the subject at hand, according to G-d’s own Word, if a believer has an indifferent or apathetic attitude towards Israel, then it is a sin pure and simple.  We need to search our own hearts and ask G-d to deliver us from the deceptiveness of antisemitism, which masks itself in replacement theology.  Such theology we see today is the complete absence of mentioning that our Messiah is Jewish.  One person I heard recently state that Yeshua is not human anymore.  If that is the case, when He ascended into heaven as a resurrected human, He stated that He would “return in a like manner.”  One has to ask, if He is not human, then what form is he coming back in exactly?

This is a way that different denominations over the centuries have divorced G-d’s people from their Hebrew roots of their faith, and as such, makes it easier to essentially cast Israel aside as a lost cause.  Many believers today are under the impression that they are the chosen people of G-d alone, because “the Jews had their chance, but killed Jesus.”  Nothing could be further from the truth.  Many Jews today are starting to embrace Yeshua as the Mashiach (Messiah).  In fact, in Israel today, it is the only country in the Middle East where Christianity is growing.  One wishes we could say that about America, the so-called “One Nation Under G-d.”

Finally, believers need to understand that, according to scripture, they are Jewish themselves.  Romans Chapter 2 is very clear on the subject.  Also, there are verses about believers being grafted into the olive branch, but that we are not the root, so we should not boast.  Boasting is not just about walking around saying how great we are in the general sense of bragging, but that also includes thinking that we have somehow supplanted the Jews as G-d’s chosen people.  There is nothing in scripture that remotely suggests that G-d has ever broken covenant with the Jews.  While the Jews in their storied history have rebelled many times against G-d, G-d Himself never broke His promises with His people.  So when believers choose not to bless Israel, in essence, they are being anti-Semitic, which is to be anti-Christ, and the latter of course, is the most egregious.

Speaking from personal experience, when I started making Israel a party of my daily prayers, there was a change.  I am a happier person, and most certainly I have been blessed many times over which lines right up with scripture in Genesis 12.  Moreover, getting in touch with the Hebrew roots of my faith in Yeshua, which will inevitably lead back to the land of Israel, has enriched my study of the Bible, in that, I am understanding more deeply what G-d’s Word has to say.  Blessing Israel is a commandment and as such if we are to call ourselves believers in Yeshua, then we must comply when Yeshua said Himself:

“If you love Me, you will keep My Commandments.”

Let us all know continue to pray for Israel and to bless the land and the Holy City of Yerushalayim.  If you have never included Israel and our Jewish brothers and sisters in your prayers, I encourage you to start today.

2016 Year In Review

2016 Year In Review

 

 

The date of this article is December 31, 2016, and once again, we are closing in on one year, and about to start another.  This past year has been, in my opinion, one of the most roller coaster years that I can ever remember.  To be perfectly honest, 2016 cannot end soon enough and for a myriad of reasons.

Of course, the biggest event of this past year was the Presidential Election.  Back in February when the Iowa Caucuses were underway, Donald Trump seemed like a long shot for the Presidency.  In fact, Ted Cruz won the Iowa Caucus and handily so.  However, from that moment on, the “Trump Train” was running at full speed and steamrolled all the way to securing the GOP nomination.  From that moment on, Trump would become the scorn of the Democrats, establishment Republicans, and even people like myself who thought that Trump was just not really the best choice.

The November elections came and went, and Trump by all accounts, won in a landslide in terms of electoral votes.  In just a little over two weeks from now, Donald Trump, a man that I grew up reading and watching in the news, and only knew as a flashy, rich businessman, is going to be President of the United States of America.  Although I did not vote for the man, looking back on the current administration’s year and their actions, I have nothing but sheer hope for 2017 in the changing of power in Washington D.C.

This past year was also one filled with profound violence, and especially towards our law enforcement officials.  Right here in the Lone Star State of Texas, it hit home especially hard when 5 police officers were gunned down during a protest in Dallas, TX.  I can still remember the profound sadness that gripped the entire nation to see such lack of regard for human life.  However, I remember the amazing response from this nation as we saw legions of police officers from all over the country attend the funerals of the fallen officers.

They came from large cities and they came from little towns where the police force may only consist of a few officers.  Nevertheless, they came to pay respects to a brother in arms, men they had never personally met, but knew them because they shared a common occupation, and the hazards that go with it.  I then watched as ordinary citizens put signs of support on their vehicles, businesses also put signs in front of their establishments showing their solidarity with police, and I read countless stories where police agencies had businesses and private citizens bringing to the station food just to say “thank you” and to let them know that “we got your back.”  In retrospect, it was one of the saddest, yet finest moments of 2016 in this writer’s opinion.

Being that this is a blog that focuses on end time events, we must give attention to the profound evil that swept across this land in terms of moral breakdown.  That breakdown that we all witnessed was the pressure from the homosexual community to accept those that identify as “transgendered.”  This movement, and that is really what it is, is predicated on the notion that an individual can simply one day wake up and declare that they are the opposite sex in the face of biological evidence to the contrary.  As part of that declaration, the gay community demands that everyone accept that decision up to and including allowing such individuals to use dressing rooms and bathrooms of the gender that they identify with at that particular moment.  We have seen that culminate in parents, if you can call them that, allowing children as young as 2 years old, telling them that they are the opposite sex, when in fact they are not, and they just simply allow the child to, “express themselves.”

A few decades ago, they would have been locked up for child abuse.

Finally, 2016 ended with the coup de gras, with President Obama’s hostile, and downright anti-Semitic policies towards Israel.  Specifically, an abstention vote in the UN regarding a resolution that would divorce the Jewish people from their ancestral homeland sent the message that this President, and his drones, absolutely and without a doubt, hate the Jews.  What is sad is that there are many in his administration that are Jewish themselves, but sadly, in name only.  Relations with Israel are now at an all time low, and that is sad considering that it was the USA that first recognized Israel as a viable state.

As stated earlier, 2017 will start with the changing power during the Presidential Inauguration in mid January.  Many people are placing their hopes and dreams on the shoulder of President-elect Trump and the GOP controlled Congress, and many of those are born again believers.  However, we as believers need to be cautious in 2017 and not place our faith in men.  As men and women of G-d we need to commit ourselves to deep and faithful study of the Word of G-d; studying to show ourselves approved unto Him.  Only through prayer, supplication, worship, fasting and bible study can we overcomes the struggles that lie ahead in the coming new year, as well as being prepared for the good times that will come our way.

My greatest hope and prayer for my readers this year is that you draw closer to Him, and seek His face in all things.  May Yeshua Hamashiach bless you and keep you throughout 2017.

 

Shalom
