Obama’s National Police

In 2008, Pres. Obama delivered a campaign speech in Colorado Springs, Colorado where he said, “We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.” These words set off a firestorm of criticism. Some accused Pres. Obama of saying America needs a national police force. Others called the idea that Pres. Obama wants a national police force a “lunatic theory.”

In 2009, the National Emergency Centers Act (HR 645) was introduced in Congress to authorize Homeland Security to build detention camps to hold Americans during emergencies and for “appropriate needs.” Good reasons were offered, but legalizing the detention of American citizens for unspecified “appropriate needs” troubled many people.

In 2010, the Dept. of Homeland Security awarded a $385 million contract to KBR, a former subsidiary of Halliburton, to build temporary detention centers on an “as needed” basis to be used in national emergency situations. One report said the plan called for every state to have from 3 to 15 detention centers.

That same year, Pres. Obama travelled to Mumbai, India where he said, “There is going to be a tug-of-war within the U.S. between those who see globalization (world government) as a threat and those who accept that we live in an open integrated (merged) world.” Put another way, Pres. Obama said he expects problems between those Americans who oppose a world government and those Americans who support a world government.

In 2011, Congress passed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2012 and it was signed into law by Pres. Obama on Jan. 2, 2012. According to what I read, Sections 1031, 1032 and 1036 allows the U.S. military to jail American citizens indefinitely (for the rest of their lives if they want to, and in other countries, if they want to) without charges or a trial.

In 2012, there was a court challenge and a federal judge ruled that jailing American citizens without a trial is unconstitutional. The judge temporarily blocked it, but Pres. Obama fought the ruling through several courts and he finally won the case.

People started asking, “Why does Pres. Obama think he needs a national police force? Why does he think this national police force needs to be just as powerful, just as strong and just as well-funded as the U.S. military? Why does Pres. Obama think he needs so many detention centers? We already have police and jails all over the U.S.” Pres. Obama must have a reason for wanting a national police force and detention centers.

In 2013, there was a shortage of bullets. The DHS admitted that it had purchased more than 148 million rounds in 2010, more than 108 million rounds in 2011 and more than 103 million rounds in 2012. These purchases of more than 350 million rounds of ammunition (many of which are outlawed on a battlefield) caused concern that Pres. Obama is up to something. Regardless of the reason, gun sales broke all records.

In 2014, it was reported that several U.S. police departments have started receiving surplus military equipment including armored vehicles, machine guns, planes and helicopters. Some questioned why local police departments need military equipment, including machine guns, but supporters called the militarization of America’s police “an efficient use of resources.”

This brings me to Pres. Obama’s reaction to the deaths of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and Eric Garner. Pres. Obama is bound to know the facts in these cases. He is bound to know that the problem is not untrained police or racism. He is bound to know that the problem relates back to sexual immorality, illegitimate children, unwed mothers, absentee fathers, illegal drugs, crime-ridden neighborhoods and things like that.

Perhaps it is just another lunatic theory, but I am wondering why is Pres. Obama ignoring the facts? Why is he blaming the police? Are we seeing an attempt to nationalize a police force armed with machine guns and military vehicles?

I don’t know, but if I was expecting a tug of war in America over a world government, I would want to control the police. If I was building detention camps to hold American citizens, I would want a police force that will arrest and detain American citizens. I would want to monitor our citizen’s e-mails, text messages, Internet searches, Facebook postings, phone calls, etc. Nationalizing the police would give me a strong well-funded force in every American town and city.

Confusion, and Barack Hussein Obama

“Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.

Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour. They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us. But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things.

I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and that no lie is of the truth. Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son. Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also.

Therefore let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father. And this is the promise that He has promised us—eternal life.

These things I have written to you concerning those who try to deceive you. But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him. And now, little children, abide in Him, that when He appears, we may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His coming. If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone who practices righteousness is born of Him.” 1 John 2:15-29

What are the foundational, fundamental beliefs which drive the decisions and ambitions of Barack Hussein Obama? I must admit that, for most of the 6+ years of his presidency I have considered him to be a Muslim. However, I have recently begun to reassess this thought. While he has personally claimed to be a Christian, his words, actions, and in fact the very evidence of his very life are contradictory to that claim. His one-time membership in the church pastored by Jeremiah Wright and his personal relationship with that pastor are well documented, as is the black liberation theology he teaches. It has been, and still is, my assertion that Jeremiah Wright is a false prophet and false teacher whose theology espouses hatred, which is completely antithetical to the teachings of Jesus Christ. If Jeremiah Wright or Barack Obama either were at one time in their life drawn to the Truth of the Gospel and the True Church, I submit that; “They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us.” (1 John 2:19)

It is therefore my contention that Barack Obama is not a Christian, and I am confident in saying so because his life has borne no evidence of any fruits of the Spirit. In fact, what evidence there is would point to him being anti-Christian. His stand for abortion, for homosexual marriage, and to force faith-based organizations to pay for contraceptives through Obamacare are examples, as is his Department of Justice and Department of Defense’s persecution of those who express their faith in Christ. The very fact that he ignored for months (while he was busy on the golf course) the plight of Christians in Iraq who are being persecuted by the ISIS, is evidence enough for most that he is anti-Christian. His negligence of the Christians in Iraq is documented in an article written by Kirsten Powers entitled; Obama’s inattention to Iraqi Christians, and published on August 13, 2014 in USA Today.

But, does this mean he is a Muslim? Of a certainty there is more evidence to make that claim than any other. We might begin with the very fact that he received a good portion of his early education in a Muslim madrassa (school) in Indonesia. Or we might point to the fact that all of his relatives in Kenya are Muslim. And in fact, his brother Malik Obama is the executive secretary of the Islamic Da’wa Organization (IDO) and is reported to oversee the Muslim Brotherhood’s international investments. Malik Obama is also known to associate with members of Hamas as well as the Muslim Brotherhood. The Obama brothers are said to be very close, Malik was the best man at Barack’s wedding to Michelle, and Malik has visited Barack in the White House on numerous occasions. Then there is this, Barack Obama has written that one of the most beautiful sounds he has ever heard is the Muslim call to prayers, and in an address to the United Nations General Assembly in September 2012 said; “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”

In two recent articles it has been documented that no less than seven individuals who have ties with the Muslim Brotherhood serve or have served in appointed positions in the Obama administration. The first article titled; Sharia Advisors – Barack Obama’s Muslim Appointees In High-Security Positions, was written by Leon Puissegur and published April 29, 2014 on freedomoutpost.com and the second article titled; Barack Obama Has a Preference for Muslim Brotherhood Advisers, was written by Sara Noble and published May 4, 2014 on independentsentinel.com

Those named in the articles were;

• Arif Alikhan — Assistant Secretary for Policy Development for DHS
• Mohamed Elibiary — Homeland Security Adviser
• Rashad Hussain Marayati — Special Envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference
• Salam al-Marayati — Adviser, Founder and Executive Director, Muslim Public Affairs Council
• Imam Mohamed Magid — Obama’s Sharia Czar — Islamic Society of North America
• Eboo Patel — Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships
• Kareem Shora, – a native of Damascus, Syria, Homeland Security Advisory Council

Also of note is Huma Abedin, who was the Assistant to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and who has extensive family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

In writing about President Obama’s obvious ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, Graham J. Noble noted in a recent editorial; “One should consider that family connections to terrorist organizations would not only render any private American citizen ineligible to serve in the US Armed Forces, or be hired for any number of government jobs, but would also make them subject to surveillance and, quite possibly, investigation. The fact that such well-documented ties can be traced to no less a person than the president of the United States makes one wonder how Barack Hussein Obama was obviously able to completely evade any vetting process. Whilst, in a free society, there should be few barriers to running for public office, the position of Commander-in-Chief is far too sensitive and important to expose to someone with such dubious links as our current leader.”

But once again I ask, is this enough evidence to say that Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim? Or, is he an Islamist? What is the difference you ask? An Islamist is one who adheres to an ideology of Islamism which uses the religion of Islam to promote totalitarianism with respect to politics, economics, militarism, and technology. As such Islamism is no different from socialism, Marxist-Leninist communism, or fascism in the way it desires to control the state and society. Islamism is anti-capitalist and as such most decidedly anti-American. Islam as a religion is personal, therefore a Muslim’s response to Islamic law is his choice. The Islamist on the other hand desires to force his form of totalitarian ideology and religion on everyone.

Since we have mentioned communism, and because Barack Obama has also been accused of being a socialist, perhaps we should explore briefly this subject as well. Unless you have been living under a rock, or are simply willfully ignorant, you are aware of Barack Obama’s relationship with Bill Ayres and Bernadine Dohrn, formerly of the Weather Underground, classic Marxist-Leninist communists, who launched his political career in their living room. You should also be aware of Barack Obama’s adherence to the organizational teachings of Saul Alinsky, also a communist, and perhaps even of his relationship with the communist Frank Marshall Davis who mentored the young Barack Obama in Hawaii in the 1970s.

Frank Marshall Davis worked with Robert Taylor in the American Peace Mobilization group which was a communist front organization, and through Taylor, Davis met a Chicago writer named Vernon Jarrett. Davis and Vernon Jarrett were part of the publicity team for the Packinghouse Workers Union which was communist controlled. Now then, here is an interesting little tidbit of information, President Barack Hussein Obama’s most trusted advisor in the White House is Valerie Jarrett. Valerie Jarrett holds the title of Senior Advisor to the president. Her grandfather was Robert Taylor and her father-in-law, Vernon Jarrett, and she was introduced to Barack Obama by Bill Ayres. So then, legitimately, the question might be asked, is Barack Hussein Obama a socialistic communist?

Islamist, communist notwithstanding, there is one “IST” that describes Barack Obama that I am willing to be dogmatic about; he is a Narcissist. The concise Encyclopedia defines narcissism as a mental disorder characterized by extreme self-absorption, an exaggerated sense of self-importance, and a need for attention and admiration from others. Narcissists are also described as being haughty, aloof, and unusually cool and composed unless their confidence is shaken and they feel threatened, which manifests itself in hypersensitivity to insults whether real or imagined. Narcissists have difficulty with empathy and sustaining satisfying relationships, and use other people without considering their feelings or counting the cost for having done so. Narcissists have unreasonable expectations of favorable treatment because they are convinced they are special and are thus entitled. Any failure to comply with their desires is considered an attack on their superiority. Typically, they are braggarts who exaggerate their achievements and claim an above average intelligence, and expertise in many areas. Narcissists have an inability to view the world from other people’s perspectives, detest those who do not admire them, have no sense of guilt or remorse, and yet are vulnerable to shame.

I believe this very aptly describes Barack Obama. From the very beginning of his presidency he has abused the American people with the excesses of his lifestyle as president. From the unmatched opulence of his vacations and those of his family, to the incessant pandering of and to his liberal Hollywood cronies, to his limitless addiction to the game of golf, he has shown no regard for the financial burden he has placed on the American taxpayer or the dereliction of his duty as president during times of international crisis. Because of his own personal ideology he has alienated our allies and emboldened our enemies. He has destroyed our healthcare system, crippled our economy, and marginalized our military. His administration has displayed abject corruption in its Department of Justice, IRS, Department of Homeland Security, and Bureau of land management, Bureau of alcohol, tobacco, and firearms, and Department of State. Barack Obama does not like the United States of America, but Barack Obama likes his position, Barack Obama likes his pleasures, and Barack Obama likes his power. Barack Obama loves worldly things!

“Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world.” (1 John 2:15-16)

I believe Barack Obama is an Islamist, and a socialist/communist, and I believe because of their incompatibility, and because ultimately he is a narcissist; that he is presently one of the most confused individuals who has ever walked the earth. I believe he came into the presidency with the socialistic goal of the destruction of the United States power and influence in the world. I believe his Islamist ideology is in opposition to the socialist/communist goals of his handlers who placed him in the presidency, yet he has a desire to see it succeed. I believe his narcissistic and hedonistic desires and affectations have caused him to turn away from any semblance of responsibility, without remorse. I do not believe that he is incompetent, I do not believe that he does not care, I do believe that absolutely everything he has done or not done has been planned.

“Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour.” (1 John 2:18)

Barack Hussein Obama is not a Christian. He is an anti-Christian, not the Antichrist but an antichrist, and we are living in the last hour. As I have often stated before, nowhere in End Times prophetic Scripture is the United States of America found. Therefore, though I believe Barack Obama serves “the prince of the power of the air” (Ephesians 2:2) and the “rulers of the darkness of this age” (Ephesians 6:12), ultimately, whether he is aware of it or not, even in his sinfulness he is accomplishing the will of God.

“And now, little children, abide in Him, that when He appears, we may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His coming.” (1 John 2:28)

EvenSoCome Lord Jesus!

American Revival; National or Spiritual, is either possible?

This may well be the most personal post I ever put up on this blog. As a Preacher, Teacher, Pastor, and Ministry Director I dedicate much of my life to the study of God’s Word. I love all Scripture, but I have a particular interest in Eschatology, the study of End Times Prophecy. In light of this, I truly believe it is a fact that we are living in the Last Days, and in fact the very end of days.

As I prepare the “Signs of the Times” update to share each Sunday morning with our church, and on Tuesday here on the blog, I look at the condition the world is in politically, morally and spiritually. I see the conflicts which rage on every continent as man’s inhumanity to man demonstrates itself in all types of violence, consuming lives because of; political differences, ethnic differences, moral differences, religious differences, or just plain old greed. In the Middle East, God’s chosen people, the Jewish Nation of Israel, is surrounded by people’s who clamor for her to be wiped from the face of the earth, and finds herself increasingly abandoned by the United States.

Here in the United States of America we find ourselves internally in the same conflicts found in the rest of the world. As a result of the policies of this present administration, there is an increasing intolerance towards Christians, emerging class warfare because of an ever-growing economic divide, and escalating racial tensions on a scale not seen since the 1960’s. The moral decay in this country rivals that of Rome under the emperors Nero and Caligula. Abortion on demand, same-sex marriage, the legalization of mind altering marijuana, and an entertainment industry in which pornography has become its largest moneymaker. We have a failing educational system which has embraced compromise and tolerance rather than exceptionalism and competition. Our schools teach our children that there are no absolute truths, no wrong answers, and that they are not personally responsible for their own actions.

The corruption within our national government has grown to epidemic proportions. We have a President who is ruling by executive order circumventing Congress at every opportunity, who routinely lies to the American people without repercussion or consequence, and an Attorney General who not only breaks the laws of this country but refuses to enforce them as well. We have an EPA rife with internal corruption yet by executive order have been given unprecedented power, an NSA, again by executive order, which is spying on the American people, and an IRS which is being wielded like a bludgeon against conservatives by the President and Democrats in Congress. Under this administration the US military has been weakened while the DHS, the IRS, the BLM, the TSA, and other government agencies have been militarized as domestic security forces.

Early in his first term as President, Barack Obama stated that we were no longer Christian nation. Personally, I don’t believe we ever were. I do believe that this nation was founded on Christian ideals and principles and that the 10 Commandments are the foundation of our legal system. I believe that at one point in time the majority of the citizens of this country at least worshiped as Christians whether or not they actually had a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. But, as far as I’m concerned, I believe the Bible clearly teaches that the only “Christian nation,” are those people who have accepted the free gift of Salvation provided through the shed blood of Jesus Christ at Calvary, and who are described in Scripture as the body of Christ, whose Citizenship is in Heaven, and not anywhere in this world. That having been said, I find great sorrow in the fact that few “churches” in America today are preaching and teaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Instead, they have become social institutions, or proponents of a word of faith prosperity gospel, or a humanistic self-help gospel, or are embracing the idea of the united inclusiveness of all religions, or some other form of theological error. Regardless, Ichabod, “the glory has departed” has been written above the door frames of the majority of these “churches.”

I was born a citizen of the United States of America. I have loved this Country, I have served this Country, and I have helped to build this Country. I grew up in a small town, played baseball and was a linebacker on my High School football team. We recited the Pledge of Allegiance everyday in school, had prayer before ballgames, and sang the National Anthem. The doors on our homes were always unlocked, and our rifles and shotguns hung in gun racks in the back windows of our pickup trucks because, we just might be going hunting after school. I was a cowboy, tended cattle, hauled hay, and competed in rodeo. We had picnics on the Fourth of July and watched fireworks, celebrating the freedom we enjoyed living in this great nation, while all the time understanding that freedom isn’t free, and had been dearly paid for by the men and women of our military.

I was proud to be an American, proud that I lived in a country where I could vote my conscience, vote for and have respect for those who would govern and lead our country, speak of and worship openly my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and instill in my family these same ideals. But as an American, I have watched this Country’s heart and soul destroyed from within. Liberalism and socialism took root in our institutions of higher learning, and has now usurped power in our government. This has resulted in the fact that we have been forced, in the name of compromise and tolerance, to exchange liberty for security and freedom for socialism. As a nation we have turned our back on God, demonstrating the same sinfulness and wickedness found in the world in the days of Noah and Lot. Repentance is no longer preached from our pulpits, Salvation has been replaced with self-help, and teaching of the Second Coming of Christ has been supplanted by Preterism. The majority of people in this nation no longer worship the God of the Bible, but instead worship at the altars of self, sport, entertainment, or money.

In light of all of these things the question must be asked, is there any hope? Can America be saved?

As a Christian, as a blood bought born-again child of God, as a believer in and a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ, I will tell you there is always hope. Hope that true followers of Christ, men and women with a biblical worldview, would speak up, be elected to office, and in other ways stem the tide of spiritual, moral, and political decay. However, as a student of Bible Prophecy, because I do not find the United States in End Times prophetic Scripture, I must admit I truly believe America’s time has passed. But, although I do not see a patriotic national revival, I still hold out hope for and am fervently praying for, a Spiritual revival in America.

Once upon a time in America, we were a nation who at least honored God. Today that is not so, for we have allowed the enemies of God to gain a place of prominence in this nation. The enemies who trouble America are neither imported nor homegrown. We find that enemy identified in Ephesians 6:11 & 12. “Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” We as followers of Jesus Christ must recognize that even though America may be lost, her people do not have to be. Our enemy is Satan, yet Christ Jesus has promised us the victory.

It is our responsibility, to share with the people of this nation and in fact the world, the truth of the Gospel. We must tell them that Jesus paid their sin debt, and ours, at Calvary, and by their confession and repentance, making Him the Lord of their lives, He offers them eternal life. And we must tell them of His imminent return for His Church, the body of Christ. We must do this because the Word of God tells us that this world is not going to get any better. In 2 Timothy 3:1-5 Paul warns Timothy; “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!  Certainly this is a description of mankind today.

Once again I will tell you we are living in the Last Days. In Ephesians 5:16&17 Paul tells us we should be “redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.” What is the Lord’s will? It is His will that all men would accept His gift of Salvation. 2 Peter 3:9 says; “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.” We must be sharing the Gospel message of  our Lord Jesus because;

Jesus is Coming Soon!

Until He comes to rapture His Church we need to keep praying for a spiritual revival that will not only sweep this nation but the world because;

Jesus is Coming Soon!

Long ago I adopted Ezekiel 22:30 as my life’s verse; “And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.”(KJV) And, it is my prayer even now that God will make me that man, and continually work a spiritual revival in my heart and mind, so that I may continue to be the preacher, teacher, and leader servant that He wants me to be. I will also be praying for Him to revive the spirit of every Christian who has remained true to Jesus Christ, so that we might see many souls redeemed in these Last Days. Will you join me in this prayer?

Jesus is Coming Soon!
