Although Obama isn’t the only key figure to watch, his presidency will set the stage for hundreds of events that will shake America. A shaking I generally predict will be the worst period in our entire history as a nation. He managed to skip over the eligibility question and has entered his administration with a dark cloud of doubt hanging over it and its constitutionality. At this moment not many people care about that.
My first prediction is that those who have questioned his eligibility as a natural born citizen will not stop trying to uncover the truth at any time during his presidency. My second forecast is that a growing number of people who once supported Barack Obama will join that investigation in time. When the honeymoon period is over the truth may then come out, that will be one of the most confusing days America will ever be asked to face.
For the first part of 2009 it will be like a circle of happy children dancing around the Maypole with everyone in blithe anticipation for the next move Obama makes. In 2010 the tables will shift and by the end of his first term he will lose over half of his original support.
I can safely say not as a prediction but as a prophetic surety that his administration will not end without the greatest economic downturn in our history as a nation. In the end it will make the stock market crash of 1929 look like a boom time.
Trusted financial institutions will fold like a house of cards and the Fed will be helpless to save them. Consumer goods will start to disappear and gasoline will be the least of our problems. These things will begin in late 2009 and will take a few years to unfold entirely.
Those who hold a Jeffersonian or Deistic view of God along with agnostics and atheists will always doubt that God exists or if he does that he bothers to intervene in the affairs of men. Here is America’s biggest mistake. God not only does guide every detail of history but he does not need a mighty nation to bring down a reprobate people. They are sufficiently busy bringing themselves down.
Why would God diminish the economy? The answer is almost too easy. Firstly it is because our securities are what we all hold dear. The economy is always the talk of the nation and morality, abortion, the gay agenda and all else are made to take a back seat to the revered matter of Americas fiscal well being. When all the warnings have been ignored; judgment strikes at the very heart of a nation. Sadly most Americans today are convinced that the economy is the heart of the nation. I can safely say it is not nor has it ever been.
Secondly it might serve well to grab a calculator and sit down for some quick math. The reason most often heard for an abortion in this nation is so the child will not be brought into a situation where the support may not exist. President Elect Obama is basing his promise to make abortion available to anyone at any time during their pregnancy as a first act in office on this flawed notion. If he does a double term of eight years another twelve million babies will be aborted during his administration.
Add to the twelve million the fifty million already aborted at the rate of 4,000 per day since 1973 and you have a grand total of 62,000,000 human lives snuffed out to save a buck for moms who don’t think they can find the dough. Now let’s get out the calculators. The average cost of raising a child for a single parent in the U.S. from birth to four years in a public college is $190,000. Multiply that times sixty two million and the amount totals over twelve trillion dollars.
We talk about the national debt but no one thinks we are indebted to God. In fact we are. Economic collapse; yes about twelve trillion dollars worth. That is exactly what I predict the interest notwithstanding.
Wishy washy Christianity will also rack up a few deficits. This church that finds nothing more to preach about than earthly prosperity is a ragged bunch of spiritually starving positive thinkers who have become the greatest negative example of discipleship in American history. Jesus is about to spit the lukewarm water out of his mouth. Rev 3:16
Christian ministries will not only suffer from their own apostasy but major house bills and social trends will squeeze the true church to the point of open persecution. Conservative Christian organizations like ADF one of America’s top defenders of our rights and the rights of Christians and Churches started a 2009 budget projection at $8,000,000, compare that to the ACLUs $220,000,000 projection and you’ll get the picture.
You will see dozens of multilateral decisions made by this administration that will erode the sovereignty of the United States. The solid base of support for Israel will also begin to suffer.
Not once in my entire life have I ever so much as even guessed at whom in our world could be the Antichrist or the False Prophet described by the prophets of old and the book of Revelation. During the meteoric rise of Barack Obama I first began to think he may be the False Prophet who aids the rise of the EU ruler we will all come to know as the Antichrist. I am still watching that and I am not ashamed to say that it looks like more of a possibility with each passing day.
It should be noted that regardless of exactly who the Antichrist or the False Prophet turns out to be the stage must be set first. Only the blind could not see that the stage is already set. Secular liberalism is a worldwide phenomenon that has reared its head with this age being inundated with demonic forces (Rev 16:13) most of them will be readily received by the leaders in the last days.
With abortion, euthanasia and the gay agenda leading the way the judgments will come long before those waiting with bated breath can see the first man wander outside of our own solar system in a man made craft.
Those leading the world in the last days are all believers. No; not believers in the gospel but believers in their own secular agenda. The blank committed stares and almost childlike impassioned rhetoric seen in Hitler, Stalin, Saddam Hussein and Osama Bin Laden are prime examples of believers. They are always convinced that what they are doing is right, they are always wrong. They become extremely dangerous when a majority of people start to believe them.
If that is so then it is only the bad news before the good news. I am sure that near the end of my life or shortly thereafter every promise of the second coming of Christ will be fulfilled and he will be standing in person in the city of Jerusalem only moments after the end of the battle of Armageddon. Every army in the world will be gathered in the plains of Esdraelon approximately 55 miles north of Jerusalem and will meet their doom in that valley.
My life is nearly over and while it may last just a little longer than you can hold your breath you may not want to start a 30 year retirement fund.
There is nothing new here for me I have been forecasting these things for over three decades the only difference now is that they are unfolding right before my eyes.
Many people think they should grab their things a huge supply of food and head for the mountains. They are merely looking for a door or a way out of it all. Is there a door and what is the way out?
I will let two passages spoken by Jesus Christ answer that question and my best advice is that you take them very seriously.
“I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.” (Jn 10:9)
“For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it.” (Mk 8:35)
Regardless of the details of prophetic events Christ is still the “door” by which you can change your eternal destiny and direction. This proclamation has seen its peak of public acceptance and is now waning in general acceptance but it is meant for only one individual at a time. It is my prayer at the beginning of 2009 that the person who heeds this warning will be you.
