Monday June 22nd, 2009. Are you one of the fools calling Barak Obama “messiah”, even jokingly?
After today’s thought I would hope you would have enough sense not to.
Beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance, that ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour, knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts. 2 Peter 3:1-3
Is there even one of you out there that, for even one micro second, doubts that we are in the last days? If you doubt we are in the last days, email me and I will send you ample proof, scripturally, that we are in the last days for five dollars. Do any of you doubt that there are those who are willingly ignorant, refusing to come to the Lord Jesus just so that they can continue in their worldly lust?
Just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: 15 That whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on Him (Jesus) should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved. He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed on the name of the only begotten Son of God.
And this is the condemnation, that Light (Jesus) is come into the world, and men loved darkness (satan) rather than Light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the Light, neither cometh to the Light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the Light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. John 3:14-21
Two things I want you to ponder here. First, when you refer to Obama as Messiah, even jokingly, you are stoking his ego and when your comments are read and the humor in your tone is not perceived, you are doing nothing more than convincing him and his supporters and worshipers that he is indeed the Messiah.
Second, you are also saying that he, Obama, is the Christ, for the word Messiah is the Hebrew for the Greek word Christos. The Lord God of Creation’s name is Jesus, His title is Messiah. That title, Messiah or Christ is sacred, and when you, even jokingly refer to any other than Jesus as Messiah or Christ, you are blaspheming the Lord.
And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in My name, saying, ‘I am Christ’; and shall deceive many.
... And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
... Then if any man shall say unto you, ‘Lo, here is Christ’, or ‘there’; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, ‘Behold, he is in the desert’; go not forth: ‘behold, he is in the secret chambers’; believe it not. Matthew 24:4,5,11, and 23-26
When you refer to Obama as “Messiah”, even jokingly or sarcastically, you may very well be leading another astray, for if you are known to be a student of the Bible, then those who hear you and do not realize you are either joking or being sarcastic, may very well think you are saying, “Obama is the Messiah”, and may God help you if that is the case. For look here: But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in Me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. Matthew 18:6 You start misleading a non Christian or a shaky new Christian about Jesus, and you are in deep trouble. God have mercy on you if you take one who is unsaved and lead him or her to believe in a false Christ.
Let me close with a warning to Barak Obama.
I have come to see a dire warning in the Bible that may, and I believe does, affect you.
In acts chapter twelve, starting in verse 20 and continuing thru verse 23.
And Herod was highly displeased with them of Tyre and Sidon: but they came with one accord to him, and, having made Blastus the king's chamberlain their friend, desired peace; because their country was nourished by the king's country. And upon a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his throne, and made an oration unto them(them of Tyre and Sidon). And the people gave a shout, saying, “It is the voice of a god, and not of a man.” And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the glory: and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost. Acts 12:20-23
When you speak there are those who refer to you as Messiah, which is the same as saying Christ. And, to the best of my knowledge you are not giving the glory to the one and only Living God, but instead, like Herod, are keeping it to and for yourself. I believe these passages are a clear warning to all kings, even illegitimate ones such as yourself.
Barak, do not think that living in the White House will protect you from the wrath and/or vengeance of God, it will not. Do not think that the US military, the Secret Service and all of the combined might of the world can protect you from the vengeance and or wrath of God. You tread on very dangerous ground when you take the glory of God for yourself.
For God Himself has said: Thou shalt have none other gods before Me. ... Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me. Deuteronomy 5:7&9
Do not curse your children Barak, do not curse your children, any of your children, those known to you, those unknown to you, those who are natural, adopted, step, or even simply claimed by you, for God does not joke in His book, what He has said, He has said, and what He has said, He means. I shudder to think what kind of pain must be involved when one is infested with worms that cannot be killed with radiation, chemotherapy, or any other poison. I shudder to think how painful it must be to be infested with worms that cannot be removed with operation after operation. But most I shudder to think of what it must be like to have a father who hates and despises his own children so much that he would expose his children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and even great, great grandchildren to so serious a curse from God.
