The Horse’s Mouth

Pres. Obama is beginning to receive more than a little well-deserved criticism for his constant fundraising. I am not saying fundraising is wrong. But I am saying that Pres. Obama doesn’t let anything interfere with an expensive trip on Air Force One at taxpayer expense to raise money for his political party; that Pres. Obama has taken approximately 400 trips; that it is not unusual for Pres. Obama to be gone for more than a day and to do something else while he is gone (such as play golf); that Pres. Obama is doing it so much that some are accusing him of neglecting his presidential duties and that there are even rumors that some of his donors are growing weary of being asked to give over and over again.

Pres. Obama is also beginning to receive more than a little well-deserved criticism for not telling the truth. It is obvious that his pledge to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States was not true; that those shovel-ready jobs did not exist; that his administration is not the most transparent administration in history; that many who liked their healthcare plan were not allowed to keep it; that our border with Mexico is not secure, and more. Pres. Obama’s dishonesty is blatant, outrageous and well-known.

Having said that, with war raging in Israel, Syria, Iraq and Libya; an unprecedented crisis on the U.S-Mexican border; a Malaysian airliner shot down over Ukraine (perhaps by Russia); and more; Pres. Obama recently embarked on a three-day, five-stop fundraising trip to the U.S. West Coast. And, on at least one of those five stops, he uttered the absolute truth and if I rightly understand what he said, everyone needs to sit up and take notice. He was talking about some of the problems in the world when he said, “part of people’s concern is just the sense that around the world the old order isn’t holding and we’re not quite yet to where we need to be in terms of a new order that’s based on a different set of principles, that’s based on a sense of common humanity, that’s based on economies that work for all people.”

First, Pres. Obama said, “the old order isn’t holding.” This is absolutely true because a strong Christian based U.S. headed up the old world order until Pres. Obama took office. But Pres. Obama reduced America’s nuclear weapons, reduced America’s military, damaged America’s economy, betrayed America’s allies, spread immorality and lied to the point that most of the world no longer respects or trusts Pres. Obama or the U.S. The decline of the U.S. has caused the decline of the old world order.

Second, Pres. Obama said, “we’re not quite yet to where we need to be in terms of a new order.” This is absolutely true because the Rapture hasn’t happened and the Antichrist can’t be revealed until the church is in heaven; all of the ten regions with their Ten Kings (ten leaders) are not fully developed; the negotiations to produce a Middle East peace treaty have collapsed and more. We’re almost there, but not quite.

Third, Pres. Obama said, the new order will be “based on a different set of principles.” This is absolutely true because the New World Order will be a satanic world order not a Christian world order. It will be “against the Christ” (antichrist), spy on, persecute and kill believers. The Golden Rule, Ten Commandments and all other Christian principles will be discarded.

Fourth, Pres. Obama said this different set of principles will be “based on a sense of common humanity.” People will be viewed as citizens of the world not as citizens of a nation and the values of individual religions (Christianity, Judaism, Islam, etc.) will be replaced by a common set of politically correct values, rules and laws that are being determined by the elite.

Fifth, Pres. Obama said this different set of principles will be “based on economies (plural) that work for all peoples.” I have long believed that the world will be divided into ten economic regions (ten trading blocks of nations) that will be transformed into ten political regions patterned after the EU and each one will have their own currency, leader or king, etc. I believe that this must happen before the Antichrist can rise to power and establish a one-world economic system. So the world will be merged in phases or stages: more than 190 nations (economies) will be merged into ten groups of nations (economies) and then the ten will be merged into a one-world government and economic system. Wealth redistribution will be a big issue.

In the 1800’s, someone coined the phrase “straight from the horse’s mouth.” Among other things it means “if you want to know the facts, ask someone that is involved.” What Pres. Obama said about the new order (New World Order or World government) came straight from the horse’s mouth.

America’s Future

A recent e-mail reads: “It drives me crazy that the Bible doesn’t say anything about America. I know that God is the Author of the Bible and He has His reasons for not mentioning America, but I want to know what is going to happen to America.”

I want to begin by saying that I believe America is in Bible prophecy. But this is just my opinion and not something the Bible says. I believe the United States will merge with Canada and Mexico to create the North American Union (NAU). And I believe the leaders of these nations will appoint a president of the NAU and he will be one of the Ten Kings.

Having said this, I am well aware that some believe “the people scattered and peeled” (Isa. 18), the “eagle’s wings” (Dan. 7), “the young lions” (Ezek. 38), the “great eagle” (Rev. 12) and “Babylon” (Rev. 18) refer to America. I understand that, but it is still my opinion that the United States will be a member of the NAU and we will be represented by one of the Ten Kings.

Now, before I started taking this position, I was among those who said, “I don’t know, but America may have been left out of Bible prophecy because America will experience a moral decline, a military decline, a sneak attack, or an economic collapse that will take her out of the picture.” It was just speculation, but many prophecy teachers realized that America had to be weakened so the world could be taken over by the evil Antichrist and his wicked world government.

Concerning a moral decline, America has kicked God and prayer out of our schools and government. Now, we have the highest STD infection rate, highest teen pregnancy rate, highest divorce rate, highest drug use rate and one of the highest abortion rates in the world. We produce more than 85% of the world’s pornography and some of our universities are actually teaching courses in it. Several states have legalized gambling, gay marriage and marijuana smoking. There is corruption in Washington, a lukewarm spirit in the church, no father in many homes and multitudes of children are born out-of-wedlock. I could go on, but just about anyone can tell that America has descended into the sewer and it is waxing worse and worse every day.

Concerning a military decline, early this year (2014) America’s Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel, recommended major cuts to America’s military. That was followed by an announcement that two of our badly needed advanced cruise missiles (the Tomahawk and the Hellfire) will be totally eliminated by 2018; our army has already been cut by 30,000 troops in the last 18 months, it will be cut by 30,000 more by the end of next year, and another 40-70,000 by the end of this decade; our navy has already been cut to the point that it is now smaller than it has been since WW I; our air force is going to lose 500 planes by the end of this decade; our deployed nuclear missiles have been cut to 1550, Pres. Obama wants to cut that to 1,000 and he would like to eventually get down to 300. There is no way to honestly deny that America’s military is in serious free fall.

Concerning a sneak attack, North Korea, Iran, and several Islamic terrorist groups have long threatened to attack America. For many years, our nation was so strong talk like that was considered to be the chatter of foolish people. But that has changed for at least two reasons: 1) North Korea and Iran have both made major strides in their development of missiles and nuclear weapons, and 2) there is the danger that some of those weapons could fall into the hands of (or turned over to) terrorists. America’s military leaders now believe the threats should be taken seriously. But instead of strengthening our military, we are cutting it back.

Concerning an economic collapse, for more than a hundred years, America’s economy led the world and it was the envy of almost everyone. Now, some are saying that China will surge ahead of America before the end of this year. For years, foreign nations coveted the dollar, but now many would rather use their own currency. For years, foreign nations invested in U.S. Treasury Bonds, but now they don’t want them. Millions of Americans are on food stamps, millions can’t find a job, millions have stopped looking, millions have lost their homes and we are closing businesses faster than we are opening new ones. Many experts believe America is on the brink of an economic collapse.

Concerning America at the end of the age, the decades old speculations of many of America’s top prophecy teachers (moral decline, military decline, sneak attack or economic collapse) are now an embarrassing reality. God once blessed America, but now that we have kicked Him and prayer out we are disappearing from the global stage and fading from the prophetic picture.

*Editor’s Note*

While I understand Daymond’s explanation for “America” being in Bible Prophecy, and the fact that all regions of the world will be involved in the Tribulation and End Time events, I believe that the United States of America, as we know it, will cease to exist as a Moral, Political, Economic and Military power on the world stage. The scripture verses referenced above cannot be ascribed with any certainty to the US, and to do so, I believe, is to error in interpretation. These verses, in fact, have better representations. Very simply, the US must decline (and is) as End Time Prophecy is fulfilled, while “America” may become a part of the NAU.
