Can you hear The Approaching Hoof-beats?

One doesn’t need be an Einstein to figure out that the world is in peril. The media outlets as well as the internet are bombarding us with over-information/disinformation. It’s nearly impossible to find what is truth.

There is one source that never fails in delivering the truth, The Bible. As Hal Lindsey used to say, “The Bible is more accurate than today’s headlines”. If you drink the drink of the mass media and big tech, you’ll certainly be in a state of despair, fear, and hopelessness. It’ll latch on to you as a blood sucking leech and drain you into oblivion.  I’m not saying, do not be informed as to what is going on. Just be apprehensive and investigatory and run everything you see through the lens of God’s Word. Believe nothing you hear, half of what you see, and ALL of God’s Word!!

Right now, I see God starting to send shots across the bow of humanity. Time is getting short, and Divine Judgment is coming. We are getting a subtle taste and warning of what is to come. God in His lovingkindness and longsuffering sends warnings, and warnings, and warnings…  Many perceive things are really-bad now, but they really aren’t, not yet at least.

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. (2 Peter 3:9)

Knowing this, it also warns us that one day the door of the ark will slam closed and all on the outside will perish in the Wrath of Almighty God.  But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie. (Revelation 22:15)

Have you ever had a sample at the grocery store? A small taste of what you get in the full package. Knowing that these current events are NOT the opening of the seals, they do indeed seem as if a small sampling of them and what is to come — In the distance can you hear the hoof-beats of the horsemen?

The First Sample (Antichrist)

Then I saw when the Lamb broke one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures saying as with a voice of thunder, “Come.” I looked, and behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer. (Revelation 6:1–2)

Antichrist. What do we know about antichrist? Is it a spirit? A man? A system? Look at the condition of humanity and you will hear his hoof-beats.

A spirit:

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world. You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them. We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error. (1 John 4:1–6)

Therefore, the spirit of the antichrist is ALREADY in the world. Sound familiar? The utter denial that Jesus as fully God and fully man who He says He is. It deludes us with false teachers, false theologies, and a distorted view of Jesus that we do not even recognize. John says to “Test all spirits” Indeed so, test all spirits, premonitions, teachings, and so-called prophets, new revelations, against the backdrop of God’s written Word. If it does not align with the written word, it is a false spirit of antichrist at play. To my point, if you are not reading The Bible, how in the world will you have discernment? How will you be prepared for what is coming? What weapon do you really have other than the Word of God? And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; (Ephesians 6:17) For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12) Get in HIS Word and sharpen your sword. Keep it sharp and be ready for battle.

One need only open their eyes a but a little to see this spirit at work in the world. A spirit of deception and lies that have even infiltrated the church. Take note, that the so-called church in the world is not the true body of Christ. There is and has only ever been a small remnant of true born-again believers in the church.  Most churches are built on shifting sand and not the SOLID rock of Jesus Christ. “But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.” (Matthew 7:26–27)

A Man?

Indeed so, the man of sin will come into the world as a leader that we call “the antichrist”. The one spoken of by scripture:

And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, (2 Thessalonians 2:8–9)

He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, Shall persecute the saints of the Most High, And shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand For a time and times and half a time. (Daniel 7:25)

As you see this rider is the opposite of Jesus in every way. The Real Christ is faithful and true, the false one is performing lying wonders.

He will be a false Christ an imitation of the real one. NOTE**This rider is not to be confused with the white horse in Revelation 19:11: Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. (Revelation 19:11) This Rider (rev 19:11) is Jesus Christ.

A System?

Biblically we call this system “The World” This system is also antichrist. Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. (James 4:4b)

 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)

We are told to not conform to this system: And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. (Romans 12:2)

We know this system HATES God and truth. “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. (John 15:18–19)

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! (Isaiah 5:20)

This system as an un-holy and un-just form of religion with sacraments such as abortion, practice sexual perversions, murder, strife, envy, and so on… Sound familiar? being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them. (Romans 1:29–32)

This White Horseman is to be set forth to conquer and dominate all aspects of human life, politically, spiritually, and economically. It’ll be like a high-tech Nazi Germany thousands of times worse and on a global scale.

The Second Sample (War)

When He broke the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, “Come.” And another, a red horse, went out; and to him who sat on it, it was granted to take peace from the earth, and that men would slay one another; and a great sword was given to him. (Revelation 6:3–4)

This is the loss of peace and the conflagration of global war. Can you hear this hoof beat? Just look on the TV or internet at the foremost world event at this moment. War in the Ukraine. 

Currently the country (Russia) with the world’s largest nuclear arsenal of approximately 5500 warheads is mired down in the first major European war since WWII. What folks really do not fathom is how close we are to total nuclear war currently more so than in the 1962 Cuban missile crisis.

War is nothing new to mankind. It has been with us since Cain murdered his brother. However, this current war (birth pang) has connotations of total global conflict for the first time in the nuclear age. These advanced weapons of mass destruction are readily available to any nations (despotic or not) that desire them. They are many and more easily obtainable as each day passes.

The capability to kill with unprecedented efficiency has never been at the level it is now. It is also getting more lethal by the day. When this Horseman arrives on the scene, his warfare will be unlike anything humanity has seen yet.

Our news is permeated with war and conflict. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. (Matthew 24:6)

The Third Sample (Famine)

When He broke the third seal, I heard the third living creature saying, “Come.” I looked, and behold, a black horse; and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard something like a voice in the center of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not damage the oil and the wine.” (Revelation 6:5–6)

Look at the stores now as of this writing. Shelves are empty, shrink inflation is out of control, and disasters are happening to fertilizer facilities daily in the news. The war in Ukraine also will burden the global food supply.

We will have this sample upon us soon I believe. Food shortages are already becoming reality. The current shortages are a major inconvenience to world and will effect food supplies. Again, it’s another warning shot across the bow of what will come later. Later when the Rider does arrive, it’ll be horrific. It’ll be 1970’s Ethiopian famine times a thousand on a global scale. An entire day’s wages for a quart of wheat. That’s enough to feed yourself but not your family… As you can see the inflation spiking upward on a global scale. My friend John [1] observed: “Do you notice those empty spaces on some grocery shelves as well as hard to obtain, or even unobtainable products, with numerous businesses closing shop? Any prophetic implications here?

The Fourth Sample (Death)

When the Lamb broke the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come.” I looked, and behold, an ashen horse; and he who sat on it had the name Death; and Hades was following with him. Authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by the wild beasts of the earth. (Revelation 6:7–8)

Over the last few years, we have certainly seen a sampling of this. We had a global pandemic which albeit bad, it is nothing like others before. However, this current one sparked global fear and permitted leads and governments to start stripping away rights of the people in the name of safety. Nevertheless, many people have perished from it. When the real seal is broken, the world will be begging for the good old days of Covid again.  

What do we do?

My friend Pastor John concluded a similar article [2] with this:

ARE WE READY? WHAT ABOUT OUR FAMILIES AND FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS? In other words, WHAT ARE WE DOING ABOUT IT? DO WE REALLY CARE (about others as much as we do about ourselves)?”

Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. (2 Corinthians 5:20) …!

“Things are getting hotter and will literally come to pass shortly and suddenly

Knowing we are being warned by The Almighty, what course shall we take? How do we Prepare?

1. Now is a good time to get right with God if you are not. Is there oil in you lantern? “Later the other virgins also came, saying, ‘Lord, lord, open up for us.’“But he answered, ‘Truly I say to you, I do not know you.’“Be on the alert then, for you do not know the day nor the hour. (Matthew 25:11–13)

Are you saved?

2. Are you in God’s Word every day? If not, How can you be prepared to give a defense of what you believe? How can you discern truth from error? How will you know God’s will, and way? You are in a war! If you are not exercising your spiritual muscles you will be overwhelmed and unfit for what is coming. All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness;so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:16–17)

Make no mistake, the last few years have been a small sampling of what is to come. I believe we are experiencing the birth pangs Jesus spoke of at the Olivet discourse (Matt 24).

I don’t know about you. But, I certainly can hear HOOF-BEATS coming. Be Ready!

Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.” (Luke 21:28)

Shalom, Brian

[2] Five Major Events That Introduce The 7-Year Tribulation Period

2 Corinthians 3:14 – Their Minds Were Hardened

Gary W. Ritter

(Proverbs 19-20; 2 Corinthians 3)

The nation of Israel had everything going for it.  After all, when God has specially chosen you to be the focus and recipient of the purpose and destiny He has planned for mankind, surely He would pour out incredible mercy and goodness upon you.  That’s certainly the case, but Israel squandered it.

God gave Moses the Ten Commandments to teach the Israelites how to live a holy and righteous life.  But these rules were supposed to be just the beginning.  In reality, their instruction was to be a tutor and cause for the Jewish people to turn to Yahweh with willing minds and softened hearts.  There was a supernatural glory in the Ten Commandments; God’s giving of them to Moses caused such brilliance to come upon him that the people required him to wear a veil.  The reality is that he represented the sinlessness of God in that condition and they – in their sin – couldn’t stand to see such holiness.  As these things unfolded, what should have brought life to the Jews, actually brought condemnation and death.

This condition has continued for Israel to the present age.  Paul describes this in 2 Corinthians 3:14-16:

But their minds were hardened. For to this day, when they read the old covenant, that same veil remains unlifted, because only through Christ is it taken away. Yes, to this day whenever Moses is read a veil lies over their hearts. But when one turns to the Lord, the veil is removed.

Because the Jews as a whole have rejected Jesus as Messiah – as God – and continued believing that through the Old Covenant they will find salvation, God has kept a veil over their minds to keep them from understanding the truth.  Indeed, their minds are hardened such that some even persecute Christians for daring to appropriate their Scriptures and distort them.

This idea of a hardened mind is not limited to the Jews and their particular situation.  It appears to be something that can come upon, not only an individual, but also an entire class of people.  It can lead to misunderstanding or misinterpreting information -perhaps even a willful rejection of truth – and result in actual harm to others.

Finding a diversion of shows or movies to watch is difficult when your heart is toward the Lord.  The vast majority of such productions include gratuitous sex, language, and/or violence.  Even shows that start out well can devolve into celebrating these deviancies.  My wife and I have begun watching many a series from Netflix (in the past when we subscribed to that) and from Amazon Prime, that we’ve had to turn off and walk away from.

Recently we began watching the PBS-produced Victoria that began in 2016.  (https://www.amazon.com/gp/video/detail/B01N7IM7RE/) For anyone who enjoyed Downton Abbey, you would probably like Victoria as well.  It’s an intriguing fictional representation of Queen Victoria and her reign in the 1800s, which is exceptionally free from moral issues that cause disgust for many of us.  (There is one uh-oh storyline in Season 2, but it resolves well.)

In a Season 3 episode, a cholera epidemic hits a certain area in London.  No one knows why.  The medical establishment is clueless and expresses both their ignorance and biases in diagnosing the causes of the outbreak.  Only one doctor takes a true interest in determining the plague’s cause.  He researches, goes into the area where the infestation is rampant, and as scientifically as he can for that day, tracks down the reason so many succumb, particularly women and children.  It’s because he cares, and cares enough to act, that they end up finding the source and ending the epidemic.  His mind and heart were soft and willing to listen and to learn, unlike those of his colleagues with their hardened minds.

You may guess where I’m going with this.  The medical establishment of today is of one uniform, hardened mind as to the causes, prevention, and treatment of COVID and its related issues.  From all over the world, there are numerous videos and reports that chronicle the deadly approach doctors and hospitals have used to deal with this planned epidemic.  They have abandoned all sane medical practices by declaring that literally everyone has COVID that they see and must be treated accordingly.  Any suggestion that a patient may have some other illness – particularly when the specific symptoms indicate this – is disregarded.  Patients are dealt with as though by robots, uncaring and unaffected by reasoning from family or friends that counter their programming.  I’ve labeled these physicians and their ilk zombie doctors.

There is a dark spiritual aspect to all this.  I did a Prophecy Update on this subject called Puppet Master Conspiracy, that details the demonic manipulation going on: https://rumble.com/vl06lq-awaken-bible-prophecy-update-8-11-21-puppet-master-conspiracy.html.

A few brave medical professionals have spoken out against the wickedness that is being perpetrated by their colleagues.  They are horrified at what they see their beloved profession doing to people they are supposed to be helping.  The stand these individuals have taken has been at great cost for many of them.  They have been ridiculed and lost their positions at the hospitals they served.  They’ve been canceled and deplatformed for daring to speak truth to expose the evil lies perpetrated by Big Pharma, the government, and the lapdog media.  Their ability to get out a counter narrative has been stymied and limited to primarily alternative media sources.  If they’d been allowed to speak freely, the staggering foolishness associated with the whole COVID fiasco, from treating patients only after they were deathly ill, to the extreme vaccine injuries with the massive number of deaths associated with the shots, could have been reduced probably by greater than 75%.  This has led many of us to conclude that all this is the result of a planned genocide.  Only extremely hardened hearts could be subject to such manipulation.

Is there an answer?  Paul states it in 2 Corinthians 3:17:

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

Only by the grace of Christ can this be comprehended and stopped.  Some of the medical rebels know the Lord well, others only in passing, and still more are secular.  Regardless, I have no doubt that in one way or another the Lord has worked in the hearts of all these individuals to speak boldly against the travesty they are seeing.  It is Christ who causes these people to act in the interest of others at the expense of their own reputations and careers.

Those of us with a pre-Tribulation Rapture worldview know all that is happening in this regard is preparing the way for the Tribulation.  Nothing of what is done in those horrible seven years originates without preparation.  There is a progression of events that occurs, from devising the technical aspects necessary to institute the worldwide system for controlling buying and selling, to the conditioning of people to obey and eventually worship the son of perdition.  All this and more paves the way for Antichrist’s Beast System.

It all begins with minds that are hardened.  The only solution is Jesus.  The world as we know it isn’t going to get any better.  The demonic realm and their human minions are operating at warp speed.  They will not relent as they see NOW as their time to strike.  God is allowing this so as to define His true church.  When the conditions are right, He will remove us to allow all these wicked actors to have their way, even as He pours out His wrath upon the world.

While we wait for our blessed hope, let’s continue to stand boldly for Jesus.  Perhaps even some of these with hardened minds will see the light.

ISRAEL: The Man Who Will Come and Say He Is Your Messiah Is NOT!

wolf3

My heart breaks when I see headlines in Israeli news sources which speak of the coming Messiah.  This article is a warning to my people of Israel. I love you and I must tell you TRUTH.

You may not believe this at first, but please print this out and keep it. When this man comes – and he WILL come – take this article out and compare the things that he has done to that which I am telling you. Israel – this man is NOT your Messiah. Yeshua is your Messiah but you missed his visitation. G-d planned it that way so that the Gentiles would have a chance to come into G-d’s Kingdom.

Why do you think that we (Yes, I’m a Jew too) have been persecuted and expelled from countries, and slaughtered the way we have?   Satan HATES the Jewish people. Do you know why? Because Yeshua came from our lineage – from the house of David!  The Savior of the whole world came from us!  We are G-d’s chosen – we were chosen to bring Yeshua into the world.

“And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed” (Genesis 28:14).

Did you see that? ALL the families of the earth shall be blessed!  For a time, Israel, G-d has partially blinded us to the truth of Messiah Yeshua. But it’s only for a time. There will come a day when Israel will recognize their true Messiah. That will be after the last Gentile enters the Kingdom of God.

Back to the man who is coming,  who will claim that he is your Messiah:

  1. He will tell you that he wants to help you build the Temple
  2. He will enforce a 7 year peace agreement for the so-called “security” of Israel
  3. In the middle of the 7 year period, this man will sit in the Temple and claim that he is G-d!  This is when your eyes will be opened to the truth. You will realize that this man has been lying and deceiving you the whole time.
  4. He will slaughter many in Israel when he realizes that you no longer believe in him.  Many of you will flee to the mountains to escape him.
  5. Your eyes will finally be opened to the truth. You will realize that Yeshua is indeed the Messiah of Israel and of the whole world.

So, who is this man you may ask?  He is Satan indwelling a man. He tried to usurp our G-d  in heaven when he was Lucifer. Perhaps you remember the story?

“How you are fallen from heaven, O Day Star, son of Dawn! How you are cut down to the ground, you who laid the nations low! You said in your heart, ‘I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of G-d;  I will sit on the mount of assembly on the heights of Zaphon; I will ascend to the tops of the clouds, I will make myself like the Most High’” (Isaiah 14:12-14).  (Emphasis mine)

Since Lucifer was cast down to the earth by G-d, he has not ceased to destroy and lie and confuse. He knows G-d’s Word. His plans for Israel are “plan B” to take the Throne of God.  He will fail again.

My heart breaks for you, and that is what prompted me to write this to you. I want  you to know the truth.  Yeshua revealed Himself to me in 1983.  Perhaps one of the reasons He did this was so I would be able to warn many in Israel about what is soon to happen.  And trust me, it IS soon.

Everything is lining up according to the Word of G-d.  All of the nations are standing against Israel – even my own nation, which saddens me to the core of my being. I never thought I would live to see the day that an American president would turn his back on Israel and put them in harms way. He is an evil man, but G-d put him where he is to fulfill His prophetic Word.

I pray that many in Israel will read these words and that G-d will open their eyes to the truth of Yeshua.  My previous article was on Isaiah 53, and how it has been hidden from most Jews throughout the centuries. Please return to that piece and read that passage of Scripture. REALLY READ IT.

Then ask yourself “Who does this describe?”

Shalom Yerushalayim!

COULD BARACK OBAMA ACTUALLY BE THE ANTICHRIST?

AC and FP

“And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?” (Revelation 13:1-4).

In 2008, my husband and I attended a church in Columbia, MD. I have written about this church in a couple of articles on raptureready.com. The church was more than half black and we loved it there. The head pastor was a black man. He was a great teacher of the Word. The worship was amazing, and Wednesday’s prayer group was always packed with people. We felt blessed to be in that church.

The campaign for the upcoming election was in full swing. In my naiveté, I was convinced that the black people in this church would surely not vote for Obama. I thought that they would be well aware of his Socialism, close ties with Planned Parenthood and would know about his radical friends, i.e. Bill Ayers and many others. They saw the news and they had to have seen Reverend Jeremiah Wright spewing his hate- filled Black Liberation Theology sermons. Obama sat under that teaching for twenty years.

One evening, I felt compelled to search the internet about my head pastor, to see if I could find anything regarding his opinion of Obama. The pastor was quite famous for many books he had written, so I felt that perhaps I could find statements he made on the upcoming election.

I did find a website with exactly the information which I was seeking. They were interviewing my pastor and another black lady, who was the head of Black Conservatives of America. My pastor was an Obama man, and I felt literally sick in my stomach.

I called him at his office the next day and told him what I had found. We talked for hours about Obama. I asked him if he was aware of the alarming facts about this man – he was well aware. But he shocked me with a question:

“Are you one of those white people who think that Obama is the Antichrist?”

I was speechless and angry that he would ask that. I almost didn’t answer, but then said that I did not believe that. We finally ended our conversation. I continued to send him information about BHO via email. This pastor finally blocked my email account, and also told his secretary not to take my calls. It goes without saying that my husband and I left that church.

For many years I have dismissed the possibility that Obama could be the Antichrist. I think that it was due mostly to my studying of End Times prophecy, and always looking for the Antichrist to be from either Italy, Greece or a country in close proximity to these countries. I suppose you might say that I had tunnel vision.

I knew that this man was evil to his core. But there have been many evil men down through history. But there was something different about Obama. Even from the start, when he would speak to the crowds while campaigning, there was something about his voice. I couldn’t listen to it and neither could my husband. It was offensive to me in a way that is hard to explain. I had to shut him off. I believe now that it was the Holy Spirit giving me wisdom about this man.

He had such a hold over his followers. It was hard to watch. Then came the “Messiah” jokes. People were worshiping him.

Today, I saw an article from CNN which astounded me. I don’t watch or read CNN as a rule, but this piece gripped me. It was as though God Himself was opening my eyes and giving me a glimpse of reality.

The article is called The Obamification of Pope Francis. It is obviously written to poke fun at the so-called conspiracy theorists.

Here is the link:
http://www.cnn.com/2015/09/13/us/pope-obama-critics/index.html

(CNN) Some pontiffs have been beatified or canonized, but Pope Francis is receiving a far more dubious honor.

He’s being “Obamified.”

The charismatic Pope, who arrives in the United States on September 22, has gained fans in and out of the Catholic Church for denouncing unfettered capitalism, warning about climate change and urging mercy toward divorced couples and women who have had abortions.

He’s also sparked a strange trend. The same political slurs and conspiracy theories that critics have used against President Barack Obama are now being deployed against Pope Francis. One critic even says the two leaders have morphed into one sinister figure he calls “Popama.”

The Obamification of Pope Francis includes charges from conservative critics that he’s either a socialist, the Antichrist, an illegitimately elected leader who wants to create a “New World Order” — or all of the above. Their anxiety was captured by the headline of one online column: “Pope Francis is the Catholic Church’s Obama — God help us.” [1]

The CNN piece goes on to make fun of how the Obamification of the pope is happening:

No. 1: He’s a stealth socialist
No 2: He’s the Antichrist
No. 3: He’s on an ‘Apology Tour’
Of course, CNN is reporting all of this with tongue in cheek, as they portray anyone who holds these beliefs or at least is wondering if these things could be true — as right wing nuts.

More from the article:

“Meanwhile, Francis has warmed up to Islam like no other Pope before him. In a historic first, Francis opened the door to Muslim prayers and Quran readings at the Vatican last year. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli President Shimon Peres joined the pontiff in the Vatican gardens for a prayer meeting.”
Still, the Pope and the President are different in at least one crucial way, says Earle Scarlett, a retired U.S. diplomat who writes about religion.
While arguing that Obama and Francis share a yearning for economic justice, Scarlett says Francis is freer than Obama to pursue his vision because the same checks and balances that stymie the power of the presidency don’t exist in the Vatican.

Oh, really? Checks and balances keep Obama in line? That is ludicrous and even CNN knows it. This president has been able to push legislation down the throats of the American people as if it’s a magic act! Think of Obamacare. And he has signed more executive orders than any other president in history, when Congress is not in session.

And even when he does things which are glaringly unconstitutional, he gets a pass. I’ve watched as he is “transforming” America and I simply shake my head at this point. I’m numb, and I know that many of you know that feeling.

POPE FRANCIS

I have written in prior articles, that I do believe that Pope Francis is the False Prophet. There are so many compelling reasons why he meets the criteria for being the False Prophet. To avoid redundancy, please refer to my other articles on Pope Francis.

After he meets with Obama, he will travel to NYC to be the keynote speaker for the Sustainable Development Goals summit at the United Nations. His main topic: Climate Change.

I want to qualify this article and my views about Pope Francis and Barack Obama, with saying that no man or woman knows with certainty who the False Prophet and Antichrist will be. I am offering the readers food for thought, if you will. Things are happening so quickly, really at breakneck speed.

These things are important to know about and talk about. We are close to the end (I believe) and these alarming events happening in the world could very well be used as a way to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the lost.

OBAMA AND THE IRANIAN NUKES DEAL

I have always said to my husband that everything BHO does is calculated. Through the years, we have watched him cozy up to our enemies, especially in the Middle East. We have watched as he has turned his back on our one true friend in the ME – Israel. He loathes PM Netanyahu and all of Israel.

Netanyahu felt it necessary to come earlier this year, to address our Congress about the “bad deal” and pleaded with Congress to do what they could to stop this deal. He wanted the sanctions against Iran to stay in place, and for negotiations to cease.

Obama would not even meet with PM Netanyahu. The hatred that our president has for Bibi and for Israel is alarming.

Many times I sit and wonder why Obama is so adamant about the Iranian deal. It struck me that perhaps he is setting up the U.S. for an attack from which we will not recover. I’m sorry if that is a scary thought, brethren, but this is a scary world right now.

I believe that there is a very good chance that BHO will eventually be the head of the U.N. I believe that there is also a very good chance that he IS the Antichrist of which the Bible speaks.  Praise God that we will not be here.

Another thing that struck me was realizing that for Satan to use the body of a black man is brilliant in a diabolical way. Remember how no one could say anything negative about Obama, without being called a racist? Now think about the entire world when Obama presides over the United Nations.

As I said, I am not saying these things with absolute certainty. But there is something happening in my spirit which compels me to write this piece.

Pray about this as you think about it.

Time is short.

MARANATHA!
