Muslim or Christian?
During his years in the White House President Clinton was nicknamed with admiration as "America's first black president" by some black people. Applying the same standard of distinct politics and pandering to the special interest groups that earned Mr. Clinton that distinction, Barack Hussein Obama would have to be considered America's first Muslim president. That is the way it would seem by all the speeches and catering that he is doing to the Muslim world. This is not to say, necessarily, that Mr. Obama actually is a Muslim any more than Mr. Clinton actually is black. After his five months in office, and most especially after his just-concluded visit to Saudi Arabia and Egypt, however, a stunning conclusion seems increasingly reasonable by many people: Barrack Hussein Obama is now happy to have his Islamic-rooted middle name given a major position in his title (This was something that was not allowed during his campaign) and he has engaged in the most significant say one thing and do another since Adolf Hitler fooled Neville Chamberlain at Munich, Just before World War Two. As Christians our eyes should be ever more open to the possibility that we have a man that could be someone other than what he wants us to believe he is. Things are not as they always seem to be. We have a president that said one thing during the election and after he was elected is showing signs of being someone else. This is very scary. He presented his self, during the election, as a angel of light and hope. Most Christians saw him as a deceiver.
What little we know about Obama's youth certainly suggests that he not only had a Kenyan father who was Muslim, but spent his early, formative and decisive years as one in Indonesia. We still do not even know where he was born. He is yet to produce a certified birth certificate. As the president likes to say, "much has been made" in this case by him and his campaign handlers, of the fact that he became a Christian as an adult in Chicago, under the now-notorious Pastor Jeremiah A. Wright. That is a big enough scare. All the vile speeches that was spewed out of this preacher's mouth does not come from a true believer in Jesus Christ. The Christian religion is based on loving Christ and your neighbor, not one of hate. The Muslim religion from what I see is one of hate. Does this say anything about the Rev. Right? When Mr. Obama's unbelievably advertised and publicized very loudly and firmly in his address in Cairo to what he calls "the Muslim world" and his Muslim upbringing, there is mounting evidence that the president not only identifies with Muslims, but actually may still be one himself. Consider the following indicators: The proof as, some would say, is in the pudding. He has been to two Muslim countries since he took office and has yet to set foot in Israel! That says something in itself to all Christian people and Jews alike. Mr. Obama referred four times in his speech to "the Holy Koran." Non-Muslims, even the pandering ones -- generally don't use that Islamic expression unless they want something. Now like never before is the time to be in prayer for Israel and our country as well. Obama established his first hand knowledge of Islam (without mentioning his reported upbringing in the faith) with the statement, "I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed." The word "revealed" is a illustration and a demonstration Muslims use to reflect their conviction that the Koran is the word of God, as dictated to Muhammad. He gives the Koran thumbs up, where ever he goes, and yet he made the statement when he was campaigning, before the election, that the Bible was out of date and also some parables' are outdated. He needs to be corrected. The Bible says that: " Forever Oh lord thy word is settled in heaven", "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever", "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words will not pass away" and there are many more verses that will tell you there is nothing out dated in the Bible. Now as a Christian (as he claims) what part of that does our president not understand? There is nothing outdated in God's Word!
Then the president made a statement no believing Christian (certainly not one that reads their Bible regularly) would ever make. In the context of what he called the "situation between Israelis, Palestinians and Arabs as offensive ," Mr. Obama said he looked forward to the day when Jerusalem is a secure and lasting home for Jews and Christians and Muslims, and a place for all of the children of Abraham to mingle peacefully together as in the story, when Moses, Jesus and Muhammad (peace be upon them) joined in prayer. (Where did Obama get that. I cannot find that in my KJV Bible!) Now, the term "peace be upon them" is relied on by Muslims as a way of blessing deceased holy men. According to Islam, Muslims believe all three were dead prophets. Of course, for Christians, Jesus is the living and immortal Son of God. He is the great "I AM" He was and is, and evermore will be the Son of The Living God. So how can Obama consider Jesus as a dead prophet. Now how is Obama looking with his Christian faith? What is his score? He sound like a Muslim more all the time. In the final breakdown, for a lot of people that are not Christian it may be beside the point whether Mr. Obama actually is really a Muslim. In the Speech and elsewhere, he has associated and united himself with supporters or followers to what Islam calls Shariah (Islamic law based on the Koran) especially, the dangerous worldwide movement known as the Muslim Brotherhood, to a degree that makes Mr. Clinton's captivated likeness for blacks look really small by comparison. The way things are lining up all Christians need to really pray for this country, Israel, and even the entire world. We really do not know fully who this man is that is in control of our country. For example, Mr. Obama has, from his, well worded, inaugural address onward exaggerated the existing and historical importance of Muslim-Americans in the United States. In the Speech, he used the Brotherhood's estimates of "nearly 7 million Muslims" in this country, at least twice the estimates from other, more reputable sources. (Who knows? By the time Mr. Obama's friends in the radical Association of Community Organizers for Reform better known as (ACORN) carry out their trademark books (cooking the books) as deputy 2010 census takers, the allowed count may well claim by far a lot more than an 7 million Muslims are living here. Not once does he say anything about the founding fathers and their Christian beliefs. He claims to be one thing but is fast proving his self as something else. Now that the campaign glitter has gone we are seeing him as he is and it does not look good for the United States and the Christian who live here.
Even more troubling were the commitments that Obama made in Cairo to promote Islam in America for not once have I heard him promote Jesus. For instance, he declared: "I consider it part of my responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear." How about the same with Christians in Muslim countries that are being murdered and persecuted everyday for their faith? Will that soon become the standard for America? He promised to make sure that women can cover their heads, including, in all probability, when having their photographs taken for passports, driver's licenses or other identification purposes. He also pledged to permit Muslims to engage in zakat, (the Muslim faith's requirement for tithing), even though four of the eight types of charity called for by Shariah can be and are connected with terrorism. Not surprisingly, a number of Islamic "charities" in this country have been convicted of providing material support for terrorism. Yet he has proposed to stop the tax credit Americans get for tithing and giving to their local church. There is another bell ringer. Above all what is really troubling is the repositioning and change Obama has announced in The United States policy and guidelines toward Israel. While he pays lip service to the "unbreakable" bond between America and the Jewish state, the president has clearly and distinctly signaled that he intends to require the Israelis to make defensive and other tactical concessions to Palestinians to accomplish the two-state solution. In doing so, he ignores the problematic fact that both Hamas and Fatah are still determined to achieve a one-state solution, whereby the Jews will be no more. Were the Jews will be exterminated. That is a well stated fact that has been said over and over again by them and their brother in arms. (Iran) and many other Muslim countries. Obama knows this. It does not take a rocket scientist to figure that out. Who is the man that is our president. Have the people who voted for him been duped? Whether Mr. Obama actually is a Muslim or simply plays one in the presidency may, in the end is neither here nor there. What is alarming is that in aligning himself and his policies with those of Shariah followers such as the Muslim Brotherhood, the president will greatly step up the already enormous pressure on peaceful American citizens to give in to such forces and increase the outlook, abroad, that America is caving in to the Muslim demands. We must be in much prayer to the Lord or our grand children will be wearing Burkhas!
So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him. ( Isa 59:19) Our struggles with the powers of darkness and the same with Israel with her struggle against the Muslim world will not end in defeat. The Lord will fight this battle.
Some people say that Obama is the anti Christ, some say he is the messiah, so say he was planted in this country, From his youth, to do exactly what he is doing, (TEARING THIS COUNTRY APART) and others see him for what he really is, a person who talks out both sides of his mouth, a person who says one thing and does another. Most Christians see him as a person that claims to be a Christian but his actions prove otherwise. He acts like, talks like, and in every way shows himself as a deceiver. As Christians we can see by his first 100 days in office that things do not look good. We never hear about his Christian up bringing from him. It is always about his Muslim upbringing. He has already did major damage to our country and more is to come. That is the bad news. The good news is that we serve a living God who fights our battles for us. In closing this article let us unite in prayer for the safety of our country and that of Israel. Let us pray for the soon return of our Lord (Our soon coming King). People with spiritual eyes can see that the battle is shaping up and it is now more than ever that we need to put on the full amour of God, so that we can stand in these last days.
