ISIS, Christians and What We Should Do

October 19, 2014

There are many ways to get things wrong. There are many ways those who are children of God can do the wrong thing. What is the right thing to do for our situation? And the most important thing to watch out for, what are the wrong actions to take for our situation in this nation? Let me tell you what God has told me.

I was reading in Isaiah 55 when God changed a word for me in what I was reading. In verse 7, he changed one word. What he said was, “Let the wicked forsake his war, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return to the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to pardon our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

What I saw in this verse was God saying to President Obama and those who support this war against ISIS to give up the war; stop fighting them. Why? The reason is they are there to be a thorn in our side as long as we are turned away from God in this country. This means, you can attack them with your missiles and planes, but in the end you will not win. They are a God-ordained adversary until we turn back to God. You can try all you want, but you will never win. Besides all that, I know the President’s heart is not in this to win anyway.

God goes on to say in the next verses, “My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” What this means is the way we would have things done are simply dumb compared to the way God plans to have things done. We look for quick relief for our situations, but God plans out things for ages to come. Where there are bad things happening, God will allow the evil to reign for a while so greater good will prevail in the end. That is how God does things. So the word to us is to trust God to lead us to the best solution; stop trying to do it our way and follow God’s plan. Therefore, we should stop trying to defeat ISIS and follow God’s lead on what to do.

Now, of course you will want to know what we should do. Let us read some more scripture to learn what that is we must do. First, let me mention what Christians are doing today. They are fasting and praying all around the country wanting things to change. However, they are missing the boat in one important area. They need to read the book of James to understand that, but we will turn to what Isaiah goes on to say first.

People who are fasting and praying ask God (starting in Isaiah 58: 3), “‘Why have we fasted and you do not see? Why have we afflicted our soul and you take no notice?’ (God answers them saying) Behold, in the day of your fast, you are doing it to please yourselves and it exacts a heavy toll. Behold, you fast for strife and debate and to smite with the fist of wickedness: you do not fast this day in a way to make your voice to be heard on high. Is this the kind of fast I have chosen? Is it a day to afflict one’s soul or to bow down like a reed bending in the wind and to make a show that you are in distress for that which you pray? Will you call this a fast and proclaim this is acceptable enough for God to hear?

“Is not this the fast that I have chosen: to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens of sin, to free the oppressed, and to break every yoke? Is it not to give bread to the hungry and to bring those who have no home to your house? Also, is it not to cover those who are naked and to help those who are related to you?”

What is the Christian doing wrong according to these verses? He is praying for things to change, but he thinks that is all he has to do. It does not work that way. James said, “Be doers of the word and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. For if any be a hearer and not a doer of the word, he is like a man who beholds his face in a mirror and then goes away and forgets how he looked…Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this: to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.” (James 1: 22-24, 27) James goes on to say, “What does it profit my brothers, though a man have faith and have not works? Can faith save him? If a brother or sister be naked and destitute of daily food and one of you say, ‘Go in peace and be warmed and filled:’ notwithstanding you do not give them those things the body needs; what does it profit? Even so faith if it has no works is dead being alone.” (James 2: 14-17)

Christians are praying for this country, but they stop there. They do not act with their feet what they pray with their mouths. They want new leaders, but they will not lift a finger of discomfort to step out and take this country back by storm. They should be out protesting, disrupting and doing anything else to say to our government, “We have had enough!” However, the Church is remaining silent. The courts are legalizing gay marriage throughout this nation with no significant peep from the Church. The government takes our freedoms away and exacts heavy tolls on those who speak out against anything that is not politically correct. They reach further and further every day, and each new day brings a new infringement on our rights and new efforts to strike God and his word out of our society. (Just look what is happening in Houston, today). Where is the Christian in all of this? There should not be just a few pastors complaining like we see in Houston today, but thousands and thousands of Christians in the streets saying, “Enough is enough!” However, there is no significant resistance out there to stop the ungodly from advancing their agenda in our society.

Faith without works is dead. Prayer to God without subsequent actions by us to change things in this country will not change the direction this nation is headed. We have to get our feet moving. We have to rise up like our Forefathers did against the British to change things or nothing will get better, it will only get worse. God demands we move in faith. God demands we get up on our feet, get out of our comfort zone and take this nation back by force. We need to organize, protest and most of all repent that we have not said, “No!” to all that has been happening in this nation. We are running out of time. It is now or never to act. God is not going to give us much more time before it is too late. Wake up Christians in America. Praying without action means you are not doing what is required for God to move on your behalf.

The Spirit Behind Obama

October 3, 2014

If you have visited my site before, you may have seen me talk about the Nebuchadnezzar spirit influencing President Obama. This spirit was the same spirit that was upon the Chaldean king Nebuchadnezzar 2500 years ago and is back influencing the President to a large degree. A better description would be is that there is very little difference between the behaviors of Nebuchadnezzar and President Obama. That spirit had a great deal of control over Nebuchadnezzar, and his personality reflected and in the case of Obama is reflecting that spirit’s agenda. Let us examine Nebuchadnezzar’s personality from the Bible and see how the President is similar.

Before we start, let me state that my book was written back in 2009 before people could see these attributes of Obama. I recognized the spirit from the beginning and in my book it tells us this spirit is behind everything Obama does. So, we will start with Daniel 2. In that chapter Nebuchadnezzar had a dream that he wanted interpreted by the magicians, astrologers and sorcerers, but no one could do it. Starting with verse 3, “And the king said to them, I have dreamed a dream, and my spirit was troubled to know the dream. Then the Chaldeans spoke to king…(saying), ‘O king live forever: tell your servants the dream, and we will show the interpretation.’ The king answered…’The thing is gone from me. If you will not make known to me the dream with its interpretation, you shall be cut in pieces and your houses be made a dunghill. But if you show the dream and its interpretation, you shall receive from me gifts and rewards and great honor: therefore, show me the dream and its interpretation!’ They answered him again and said, ‘Let the king tell us the dream, and we will show the interpretation of it.’ The king answered and said, I know for a certainty you would buy the time, because you can see the thing is gone from me. But, if you will not make known to me the dream, there is but one decree for you: for you have prepared lying and corrupt words to speak before me till the time has passed: therefore, tell me the dream, and I shall know that you can interpret it.’ The Chaldeans answered the king, ‘There is not a man upon the earth that can show what the king demands: therefore, there is no king, lord, nor ruler that has ever asked any such things of a magician, astrologer, or Chaldean. And it is a rare thing that the king requires, and there is no one that can reveal this to the king except the gods whose dwelling is not with flesh.’ For this cause the king was angry and very furious, and commanded to destroy all the wise men in Babylon.”

What can you notice from this passage? You can notice that Nebuchadnezzar would not negotiate. What is Obama known for, today? He will not negotiate with Republicans. When he meets with Republican leaders, he expects the Republicans to cave in every area. When they do not, then the negotiations are halted. What else can we notice from this passage? He made outrageous accusations against them. He said in the present tense, “You have prepared lying and corrupt words to speak before me till the time has passed.” They had only just then been summoned by the king and told what he wanted. They had not had time to do what he accuses them of doing. He assumes they will lie to him. How is Obama the same? For one thing, Obama does make outrageous claims about the Republicans all the time. In that, he is no different than most Democrats in Washington. Another thing is Obama is well known for passing the buck. He is never responsible for not knowing things or for doing things: he passes the blame onto someone else. Nebuchadnezzar could not see himself in the wrong in this situation. If he is not wrong, then his aides are wrong, so he started casting accusations at them. Does this sound like President Obama?

Let us examine Chapter 3 in Daniel. In this case, three Jews named Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego had been elevated to positions of honor. However, when Nebuchadnezzar made an image of gold and told all to fall down before and worship the image, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego disobeyed. They would not worship anything except worship God. When it was reported to the king, he sent for them and said in verse 14, “’Is it true, O Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego that you do not serve my gods, nor worship the golden image which I have set up? Now, if you will be ready at what time you hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery and singing, and all kinds of music; and fall down and worship the image which I have made; then all is well: but if you will not worship, you shall in the same hour be cast into a burning fiery furnace; and who is that God that shall deliver you out of my hands?’ Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego answered and said to the king, ‘O Nebuchadnezzar, we would like to be able to come up with the words, but if it is to be, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace: and he will deliver us out of your hand, O king! But it he does not, let it be known…we will not serve your gods nor worship the golden image which you have set up.’ Then was Nebuchadnezzar full of fury, and the form of his visage was changed against Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego: therefore he…commanded that they should heat the furnace seven times more than it was normally heated. And he commanded the mightiest men that were in his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego and cast them into the burning fiery furnace.”

What do we notice about Nebuchadnezzar in this passage? Here we see and in the previous passage we could see that Nebuchadnezzar does not compromise. We even see how vicious he is to those who stand up to him. What do we see in President Obama? We see someone who does not compromise. How often has anyone seen Obama compromise over anything? It does not happen very much, for sure. He absolutely will not compromise his idealistic views on any bill in Congress and will insist to Harry Reid and the other Democrats, it is better to shut the government down than let the Republicans gain any concession from him. He of course with the Democrats will then accuse the Republicans of shutting down the government.

We also see in this passage how vicious Nebuchadnezzar was to Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. When they would not give in completely to his wishes, he acted in a rage to have them killed in a worse way than was normal. These were people he was fond of before this incident. What did Obama do during the last government shutdown? He had the World War II memorial shutdown, barricading it and having our veterans removed from the site. This is only one thing he has done among many that could be called vicious. If you do not give him what he wants, he will find a way that involves causing pain to people so those opposed to him will cave and give him what he wants. That truly is a Nebuchadnezzar spirit manifesting itself in him.

Now, let us go back to 2008 and 2009. Remember how Obama was idolized. He frequently would say “I will…” do this: or “I will…” do that. There was adulation galore over him. Many were calling him a messiah. He certainly believed that the world would become safer with him as president. With him, the world would be greener with the oceans lowering. (I never knew they actually rose in the first place. Supposedly, Miami should already be under water according to some environmental predictions of 20 years ago). All of this conceit about his presence reflects what Nebuchadnezzar thought about himself. In Daniel 4, we read, “He (Nebuchadnezzar) walked in the palace of the kingdom of Babylon. The king spoke and said, ‘Is not this great Babylon that I have built for the house of the kingdom by the might of my power, and for the honor of my majesty?” (Daniel 4: 29-30) Nebuchadnezzar thought of himself as a deity. He changed things and made them great and glorious. The world truly was blessed by his presence is the way he thought.  Can you see the similarities between them? Obama and Nebuchadnezzar are close to indistinguishable from all that has been covered. The one difference could be the degree required to humble them.

Consider all that I have said and know there is a Nebuchadnezzar spirit driving Obama. It is the same spirit that controlled King Nebuchadnezzar long ago to a large degree. This spirit has an agenda, and it involves destroying this country as we know it. Freedom is anathema to it, because that means there is a presence of God in the country. Freedom springs from God because he did create all men equal in his eyes. Equal means he loves us all the same. We all have different talents and abilities, but God looks on the heart, and when we are forgiven of the sin in our life, he only sees Jesus when looking at us. Satan must remove Jesus from our society, so freedom must go and eradication of Christianity must be achieved. Just look today; it is the Christian ideals that are under attack in this country. Our leaders will not even begin to tell the truth about Islam, therefore they will not attack it, but Christianity is fair game. We need to turn back to God before it is too late. We have less than a year to stop what is coming. This spirit cannot be stopped any other way than to turn this country back to God. Nebuchadnezzar was never stopped. He was God’s tool to judge the kingdom of Judah. Today, he is God’s tool to judge the United States. So, watch out America! Your time is almost up.
