It was a dynamic church. The preaching was sound and so grounded in the Word. The church was large; over 2000 people. It was predominantly black and we loved it there.
Wednesday night (prayer night) was amazing. Well over 100 people showed up each week. We wept and prayed together. We made such close friends there. This was in 2008.
The campaign for the presidency was in full swing. I admit – I was very naive. In my mind I thought that these Jesus loving – Bible believing Christians would not vote for Barack Obama, even though he would be the first black president of the U.S. I kept telling myself this. But something was wrong in my spirit. You know that feeling, I’m sure.
Searching the Internet
One evening I decided to surf the web for anything about our pastor. He was quite well known. He had written many books. One of those books was called “Gracism.” His name is Dr. David Anderson.
I finally found his name on a website. He had been interviewed by a black website about the upcoming elections. This website also brought on another black woman, who was the head of Black Conservatives of America. My heart sank when I saw that Pastor David was promoting Barack Obama and berating John McCain.
I called the church office the next morning and asked to speak with Pastor David. We talked for hours. I told him what I had found online, and that Tim and I were so concerned. I asked him if he knew about Obama’s affiliation with Planned Parenthood. I asked if he knew Obama’s voting record, and how he had voted against the “Born Alive” act. He said he knew it all.
Then I asked the big question: “How can you vote for this man who is against everything in which we believe?” Then he asked me a question that still haunts me to this day.
He asked if I was one of those white people who believed that Barack Obama was the Antichrist. I knew that this was his way of belittling me. It was his way of ending this conversation. He was basically calling me a whacko.
I told him that he was avoiding the very important issues. I also told him that one day he would stand before Jesus and give an account as to why he took this stand. He became enraged with me and instructed his secretary to take no more of my calls.
Could he be?
Back then, I really was not even thinking that this man could be the Antichrist. I just knew that he was someone who was so dangerous for our country. I realized that many blacks would vote for him because of his skin color. The whole thing sickened me.
After the election, I was stunned, as I know so many other Christians were. Just stunned and filled with disbelief. I could hardly talk to anyone. I was numb, sad and grieving for our country.
Needless to say, Tim and I left that church after that first talk with Pastor David. After Obama’s victory, Pastor David wrote a letter to the church on the website. In the second paragraph he spoke about me. He didn’t call me by name, but it was obviously about me.
He told the church that there was a white woman who just could not bring herself to be joyful with the rest of the church over Obama’s election. He said that history had been made. He said that he believed that this women actually believed that Obama was the Antichrist from Scripture. I’m sure that many had a good laugh that day.
But now, almost 8 years later, I am beginning to wonder about that conversation with Pastor David. It seems that Obama has his sites set on the United Nations. In particular, he is eyeing the highest seat in that assembly – the Secretary General of the U.N.
Israel hating from the beginning
I won’t go into all of the things BHO has done against Israel – there are just too many. Let’s say that he has not hidden his disdain for PM Netanyahu and the State of Israel. His nuclear deal with Iran was a slap in Israel’s face. He knew that this would put the Jewish state in peril like nothing else.
His friendship and ties with the Muslim Brotherhood was another slap in the face of the Jewish people. It could not be more clear that Barack Obama detested Israel and wanted to see her blown off the face of the earth.
My mind is racing now. Could he be the Antichrist or is he a foreshadow of him?
Netanyahu would never sign that peace treaty
I have said to my husband numerous times that Bibi would not sign a peace agreement with the Antichrist. Today I read that his numbers are falling rapidly in polls, and that it will be a miracle if he can hold onto his position.
It will be a liberal who signs the peace treaty.
This is almost too much to think about. I have to take this to our Lord. He is in control and He knows what will happen. He alone knows if Obama is the “Wicked” spoken of in Scripture.
We are so close
As I’ve heard it said lately – things are not falling apart – they are falling into place. I truly believe this. All of God’s prophetic Word will be fulfilled. Is it unnerving at times? Of course! We are in these mortal and frail bodies. But the only way we stay strong is to press in closely to our Father. There is safety in His arms.
Keep looking up, brethren. His Word is true – He cannot lie. The twinkling of an eye is an amazingly quick event. We will be here, and then we will be with our Lord in heaven- in the twinkling of an eye!
“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Wherefore comfort one another with these words” (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18).
Think about that when you are troubled.
