The Truth about Barack Obama
Bible Prophecy fulfilled during the End Time?
Bible Prophecy of a Wicked Politician
"Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon." (Rev. 13:11)
In prophetic Scriptures the word "beast" is used figuratively of a corrupted and ungodly man (Ecc. 3:18; 2 Pet. 2:12; Jude 10). Hence, the apostle Paul wrote: "I have fought with beasts at Ephesus" (1 Cor. 15:32). The apostle John's prophecy describes a powerful man who will emerge in the world during the End Time. This man has " two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon." The lamb is a symbol of a weak Christian (Jn. 21:15). In biblical prophecy the horns represent the power of wicked kingdoms (Dan. 7:7-8; Rev. 13:1). The "dragon" point to the "Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him." (Rev. 12:9). The devil "does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it." (Jn. 8:44)
The Bible prophecy that states "he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon" can refer to a wicked politician who claims to be a Christian but tells lies in order to gain political power to rule a nation.
The revelation that John received evokes the image of a false Christian who has risen in power. He has a charming and engaging personality. He is an erudite and eloquent orator but also a great deceiver of the American public.
Barack Obama is not a true Christian and he definitely preaches a false and perverted gospel
The Lord Jesus Christ said: "Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven." (Mt. 7:21). One of the tests of a true Christian is to see whether or not the person keeps God's Commandments (Mt. 5:17-19).
Obama contends belief in Jesus Christ is not necessary for salvation
AP - 3/27/2008 8:00:00 AM
GREENSBORO, N.C. - Senator Barack Obama has told an audience that although he believes Christ died for his sins, those who reject that teaching can also be children of God.
During a campaign stop yesterday in Greensboro, North Carolina, Senator Obama told the audience that he believes he "can have everlasting life" because Jesus Christ died for his sins. But he then told a questioner that he believes Jews and Muslims who live moral lives are just as much "children of God" as he is. (listen to audio clip)
The Illinois Democrat added that his late mother didn't share his faith but was a kind and generous person, so he's "sure she's in heaven." (listen to audio clip)
Barack Obama is preaching a false gospel about the Lord Jesus Christ. If Jews and Muslims who do not believe the Lord Jesus Christ is God manifested in the flesh and do not accept Him as their Lord and Savior are also called "Children of God" then Jesus died on the Cross in vain. The Lord Jesus Christ warned: "Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins." (Jn. 8:24) The Holy Bible states: "But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name." (Jn. 1:12) "For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus." (Gal. 3:27) "By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep His commandments." (1 Jn. 5:2).
Jesus Christ said it very clearly and plainly: "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." (Jn. 14:6) No one can become the children of God without believing in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Barack Obama is lying about the faith of his own mother. He claimed that he was raised as a Christian, and now he says that his mother "didn't share his faith but was a kind and generous person, so he's "sure she's in heaven." This is a false gospel. The Bible states: "For by grace you have been saved through faith, and not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast." (Eph. 2:8)
No one can be saved by being "a kind and generous person" and go to heaven without believing in the Lord Jesus Christ and be washed in His precious blood (Rev. 7:9, 13-17).
Barack Obama is preaching a perverted gospel of Christ (Gal. 1:6-7). "But even we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed." (Gal. 1:8-9)
Barack Obama is not only a dangerous politician, he is also a very dangerous preacher who destroys souls and leads them to hell. Do not be deceived by this liar.
Barack Obama's Beliefs are against the Teachings of Christ
Partial birth abortion is the murder of babies when they are very close to being born. This is a mortal sin. The baby is killed by sucking out its brain while it is in the birth canal.Please go to this web page that describes Partial Birth Abortion. http://www.abortioninfo.net/facts/pba.shtml
Barack Obama voted against banning Partial Birth Abortion. (Oct 2007)
He voted NO on notifying parents of minors who get out-of-state abortions. (Jul 2006)
He voted YES on $100M to reduce teen pregnancy by education & contraceptives. (Mar 2005)
Barack Obama plainly supports abortion, even though it is the leading cause of death among African-Americans more than heart disease, more than AIDS, and more than violent crime. Abortion is a targeted measure by the devil to wipe out minorities in America. Barack Obama's stance on abortion alone should be enough to discourage any Christian from voting for him but let's look at his voting record concerning the marriage amendment, which would define and protect marriage as a union between one man and one woman.
Vote 163: On the Cloture Motion: A Senate cloture vote on the gay marriage amendment failed, effectively killing the amendment. Obama voted NO
Obama's comments came three days after he released a 770-word letter to the homosexual community, pledging to partner with them in passing favorable laws if he is elected.
"As your President, I will use the bully pulpit to urge states to treat same-sex couples with full equality in their family and adoption laws," he wrote. "I personally believe that civil unions represent the best way to secure that equal treatment. But I also believe that the federal government should not stand in the way of states that want to decide on their own how best to pursue equality for gay and lesbian couples -- whether that means a domestic partnership, a civil union, or a civil marriage.
"... I believe that we can achieve the goal of full equality for the millions of LGBT people in this country," he said further, referring to the acronym for lesbian, gays, bisexual and transgendered. "To do that, we need leadership that can appeal to the best parts of the human spirit. Join with me, and I will provide that leadership. Together, we will achieve real equality for all Americans, gay and straight alike."
Barack Obama supports the union of same sex marriages. While Christians should not persecute people based on their sexual orientation but they should not support homosexuality by endorsing gay and lesbian marriages. It would bring the judgment upon this nation (Rom. 1:24-32)
Barack Obama made conflicting statements
A sermon from his pastor Jeremiah Wright shortly after the September 11, 2001, terrorism attacks is also under scrutiny. In it he said America had brought on the attacks with its own practice of terrorism.
"We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye," he said. "We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans, and now we are indignant. Because the stuff we have done overseas has now brought right back into our own front yards. America's chickens are coming home to roost."
In his statement Friday, Obama said he had not personally heard the controversial sermons.
"When these statements first came to my attention, it was at the beginning of my presidential campaign. I made it clear at the time that I strongly condemned his comments," Obama wrote. "But because Rev. Wright was on the verge of retirement, and because of my strong links to the Trinity faith community, where I married my wife and where my daughters were baptized, I did not think it appropriate to leave the church."
And in a 2003 sermon, Wright said of America's treatment of African-Americans: "The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing 'God Bless America.' No, no, no, God damn America, that's in the Bible for killing innocent people."God damn America for treating our citizens as less than human. God damn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is supreme."
Barack Obama said: "The statements that Rev. Wright made that are the cause of this controversy were not statements I personally heard him preach while I sat in the pews of Trinity or heard him utter in private conversation."
Obama is trying to extricate himself from the crisis prompted by the surfacing of racially inflammatory sermons preached by his spiritual mentor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, the senior pastor at Trinity United Chuch of Christ on Chicago's South Side.
Obama admitted in his speech that he personally heard some of Wright's fiery rhetoric. "Did I know him to be an occasionally fierce critic of American domestic and foreign policy? Of course. Did I ever hear him make remarks that could be considered controversial while I sat in the church? Yes."
On Friday, Obama, in an interview with the Chicago Sun-Times, Obama said something different. "I'll be honest with you. I wasn't in church when any of those sermons were issued."
Obama probably made that admission in his speech knowing that reporters were trying to determine if he was in church for one of Wright's divisive missives. He contradicted himself over and over again.
It is completely irrelevant whether Barack Obama had heard his pastor's inflammatory sermons while sitting on the pews during a church service, or heard it from somebody, somewhere else at another time. The fact is that Barack Obama has been a prominent member of that church for twenty years, and he has done nothing to either correct his pastor's distorted views on race and this country, raises doubts about his character, sense of judgment, trustworthiness and leadership to be the president of the United States of America.
Obama’s Muslim Roots
There is a lot of information concerning Barack Obama's connection with Islam that his campaign does not want the rivals and the American public to know. We should be objective and fair in our assessment of him and try to separate fact from fiction. Here is the truth that can be verified.
Barack Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii. His father is an African Muslim named Barack Hussein Obama Sr. who is from Nyangoma-Kogelo, Siaya District, Kenya. His mother is a White atheist named Ann Dunham of Wichita, Kansas.
Obama's father, stepfather, brother and grandfather were all Muslims. He explained his own first name, Barack, in "Dreams": "It means ‘Blessed' in Arabic. My grandfather was a Muslim."
Obama's middle name Hussein is also a Muslim name. It was given to him by his father Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. Obama and his campaign do not like anyone to use the name "Hussein" because it is a Muslim name and it also has bad association with the former dictator of Iraq - Saddam Hussein.
In his second memoir, "The Audacity of Hope," Obama added: "Although my father had been raised a Muslim, by the time he met my mother he was a confirmed atheist." This claim is highly questionable because Muslims would kill any apostate that renounced Islam. Barack Obama lied about his father.
Still, when his father, a black Kenyan Muslim named Barack Obama Sr., died in 1982, "the family wanted a Muslim burial," Obama quoted his brother, Roy, as saying in "Dreams."
When Obama was two years old his parents divorced and his father returned to Kenya. His mother married Lolo Soetoro, an Indonesian Muslim as well. His mother seemed to have an inexplicable attraction for non-American and non-white Muslim men whom she was married to two of them.
Barack Obama claims he was raised by his mother as a Christian. This claim is doubtful and questionable. Why would a committed Christian woman be married to two Muslim men, one after the other? Why is there no record of Obama's mother being a practicing Christian in the Church? If Barack Obama was raised as a Christian from childhood why would he have to wait until adulthood to join a Christian church? Many claims of Barack Obama do not make sense and are hard to believe.
In 1967, the Soetoro family moved to Jakarta, Indonesia where Obama was known as Barry Soetoro, and he remained there from age 6 to 10.
Obama attended first grade at a Catholic elementary school near his home, St. Francis of Assisi Foundation School, which accepted students of any religion.
His first-grade teacher Israella Dharmawan told the Los Angeles Times: "At that time, Barry was also praying in a Catholic way, but Barry was Muslim. He was registered as a Muslim because his father was Muslim."
In the third grade, Obama transferred to a public school, where he was also registered as a Muslim.
Muslim students at the school attended weekly religion lessons about Islam, taught by a Muslim.
In his autobiography, "Dreams From My Father," Obama mentions studying the Quran and describes the public school as "a Muslim school."
Boyhood friend Adi said Obama occasionally went to Friday prayers at a local mosque.
"We prayed but not really seriously, just following actions done by older people in the mosque," he told the Los Angeles Times.
Barack Obama's official statement that he had never been a Muslim in all his life is a big lie.
Obama's Muslim Connection
By Jon Christian Ryter * January 16, 2008 * NewsWithViews.com
When Obama's early history and his Islamic upbringing was first reported, Obama's website posted a statement dated Nov. 12, 2007 with the headline: "Barack Obama is Not and Has Never Been a Muslim." The statement reiterated that Obama was not a Muslim, was not raised as a Muslim, and is a committed Christian.
On Dec. 22 at the Smoky Row Coffee Shop in Oskaloosa, Iowa, the locals asked Obama about his Muslim roots. He said: "My father was from Kenya. A lot of people in his village were Muslim. He didn't practice Islam. Truth is, he wasn't very religious." That was a lie. Obama's father and stepfather were devout Islamics. Both faithfully practiced their religion. His stepfather, who had a much greater impact on Obama's upbringing, was a radical Wahabbi Muslim. "My mother was a Christian from Kansas." That was also a lie. Obama's mother, his maternal grandmother and grandfather were all atheists. "They married and then divorced. I was raised by my mother. So, I've always been a Christian. The only connection I've had to Islam is that my grandfather on my father's side came from that country. But I've never practiced Islam...For a while I lived in Indonesia because my mother was teaching there. And that's a Muslim country. And I went to school-but I didn't practice Islam." Another lie. Obama's mother married Lolo Soetoro, a Wahabbi extremist who lived in Indonesia. When Obama's mother moved to Indonesia-before she married her second Muslim husband-she enrolled her son in Francis Assisis Catholic School. He was enrolled as a Muslim because he was a Muslim. The enrollment form required each student to choose one of five state-sanctioned religions when enrolling: Buddhist, Catholic, Hindu, Muslim, or Protestant. Had he been a lifelong Christian, or even a recent convert, he-or his mother-would have circled Protestant.
When confronted with this information, Obama said he couldn't understand how such an error could have happened. Los Angeles Times reporter Paul Watson, who dug into Obama's allegation of error, said "...his former Roman Catholic and Muslim teachers, along with two people who were identified by Obama's grade school teacher as childhood friends, says Obama was registered by his family as a Muslim at both schools he attended. The registration meant that during the third and fourth grades, Obama learned about Islam for two hours each week in religion classes. The childhood friends say Obama sometimes went to Friday prayers at the local mosque." (Something else Obama claims he never did.) "...Obama's younger sister, Maya Soetoro, said in a statement released by the campaign that the family attended the mosque only 'for big communal events' not every Friday." Obama, who belongs to a church that teaches that the Muslims of the world were wronged by both Israel and the United States, cannot afford to be labeled as a "Muslim" by voters who expect the United States to win the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan where their sons and daughters are being killed by Muslims.
Barack Obama is very well supported by Islamic Americans
In December 2007, the Trinity United Church of Christ (TUCC) the church that Barack Obama has been a member for twenty years, bestowed its highest social achievement award upon Louis Farrakhan, the head of the Nation of Islam. This was facilitated through the church's publication Trumpet Magazine and presented at their end of the year awards gala. The award dubbed the Lifetime Achievement "Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr. Trumpet" Award is named after the head pastor that married Barack and Michele Obama nee Robinson.
Farrakhan praised Obama before a large Nation of Islam gathering, even comparing him to the religion's founder, Wallace D. Fard Muhammad, who Farrakhan claims also had a white mother and black father.
"A black man with a white mother became a savior to us," Farrakhan said Sunday. "A black man with a white mother could turn out to be one who can lift America from her fall."
The Obama campaign has been quick to distance itself from Farrakhan."Senator Obama has been clear in his objections to Minister Farrakhan's past pronouncements and has not solicited the minister's support." A Obama spokesperson said, but Islamic Americans support Barack Obama's presidential candidacy.
There are about 3.5 million Arab Americans. According to a 2007 Zogby poll 62 percent of Arab Americans vote Democratic and 25 percent vote Republican. A few days before Super Tuesday, the Arabs took an electronic straw poll, sponsored by Al Jazeera an Arabic satellite channel. The viewers - who are for the most part Arabs or interested in Arab affairs - were asked to vote electronically for their choice for U.S. president. A majority of Arabs, 61 percent, voted for Obama as their number 1 choice. One of the main reasons for the Arab's choice for Barack Obama as the U.S. president is his Islamic heritage. Another reason is his stance on the war in Iraq and also the quick withdrawal of U.S. troops.
Barack Obama's strong opposition to the war in Iraq could be due to his Islamic roots and also not wanting America to fight against the people of his heritage.
