No We Can't - The Cult of B. Hussein Obama
(2 Peter 2:1, Lamentations 2:14, Jeremiah 14:14, Matthew 24:24)
LAST FEBRUARY, LONG BEFORE ANYONE WAS WARNING YOU ABOUT SENATOR BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA, I WROTE THIS POWERFUL DEVOTIONAL. LET IT BE A REMINDER OF WHO THIS MAN REALLY IS!!! ALSO, HERE IS THE VERY POPULAR YOUTUBE VIDEO I PREPARED THAT CALLS INTO QUESTION WHETHER THIS MAN IS REALLY A CHRISTIAN AS HE CLAIMS TO BE. PLEASE FORWARD THIS TO EVERYONE THAT YOU KNOW. http://liveprayer.com/b4.cfm
NO WE CAN'T! The cult of B. Hussein Obama. Remember I told you there would be a revival in this nation this year. Well, before we see a true spiritual revival that will bring millions to faith in Christ and help lead this nation back to God and Biblical values, there is going to be a "faux revival" led by the latest preacher of false hope, B. Hussein Obama. Obama is running for the Democratic Party's nomination to try and become the next President of the United States. He is preaching a gospel of change and hope. Thousands are flocking to his campaign rallies and becoming emotionally charged as this "political evangelist" preaches about hope and change. The problem is he is a false prophet and no true follower of Christ can follow or support this "false messiah of hope and change!"
Very troubling to me has been watching the "revival-like" atmosphere surrounding B. Hussein Obama's campaign for the Presidency. Like all false prophets, it is a false gospel with lots of smoke and mirrors. I think people would be troubled to know that the flowery rhetoric flowing from Obama isn't coming from his heart, but from a 26-year-old white man named Jon Favreau. Favreau is the author of those flowery and dynamic hope and change messages you hear, not B. Hussein Obama. Obama has even had some input from legendary JFK speechwriter Ted Sorensen who is now 79.
Want another interesting fact about B. Hussein Obama. As someone who has done live TV every night for 5 yrs, if you watch Obama, he only gives those stirring hope and change speeches when he has a teleprompter so he can READ HIS LINES! This man is a complete fraud! When he is without a teleprompter, he resorts back to his typical stump speech on the issues. This "false messiah" of hope so many are clinging to, isn't even the author of his message of false hope and is incapable of delivering those passionate speeches without a teleprompter!
Before I get any further into this Devotional today, sadly I have to stop and address something I have already been accused of just by announcing I would be dealing with Obama today. Anyone who has ready my Devotionals knows that I am not in any way shape or form a racist. You need to go to my Devotional archives on the Liveprayer.com website and search for the Devotionals I have written on racism. The fact is, half of the Board of my Ministry are African-American men. Of the 2.4 million subscribers to the Daily Devotional, there are Whites, Blacks, Asians, Hispanics, people of every race in all parts of the world.
In the first 3 years of my ministry when I preached in over 500 churches around the country, I mainly started out preaching in black churches in Chicago where I was based, through doors opened by the men on my Board. One of my dearest friends is the legendary civil rights leader Dr. Clay Evans of Fellowship Baptist Church in Chicago. Dr. Evans has always referred to me as his "white son." He honored me by letting me preach his broadcast service from the "Ship" as it is known on several occasions, one of the only white preachers to have done so.
What I am sharing about Obama today has NOTHING to do with the color of his skin. It has everything to do with his stand on the spiritual issues of our day and the fact he takes stands in complete opposition to the Bible and God! That is why a true follower of Christ can't support B. Hussein Obama. You don't need to look any further than his stand on abortion. Forget his weasel rhetoric. The FACT is, B. Hussein Obama supports a woman's right to kill her baby. Obama supports the legalized slaughter of babies. There is really nothing more a true follower of Christ needs to know about this man. But that is not all. B. Hussein Obama also supports redefining God's Holy Institution of Marriage to include people who choose to engage in deviant sexual acts with others of the same sex. How can a true follower of Christ support a man who wants to change God's definition of this most holy union of marriage?
What is most troubling to me is that B. Hussein Obama claims to be a Christian. Only God knows his heart, but Jesus said, "If you love me, you will obey me," not live in rebellion to me. If B. Hussein Obama is truly a follower of Christ, how can he vote to support the legalized slaughter of babies and the redefining of God's Holy Institution of Marriage? Let me dispel an Internet rumor. Obama is NOT a Muslim. However, he did grow up in Muslim culture. Your life experiences shape who you are, so while not being a Muslim, he is no doubt sympathetic to the issues Muslims face.
Let me be blunt. Islam is a false religion of hate and death, a 1400 year old lie dreamed up by a murdering pedophile named Mohammed. They have a very real goal of destroying this nation and all who live here who refuse to convert to their false religion. While those who seek to make Islam more acceptable and mainstream talk about peace, the fact is, ALL Muslims are guided by the same book of fantasies Mohammed inspired, the Qu'ran. Their book clearly calls for the DEATH of all infidels, and that means all Christians and anyone else who won't convert. They routinely execute Christians in other parts of the world, and would do so here in a heartbeat if they could get away with it. While B. Hussein Obama is NOT a Muslim, due to his life experiences, he is clearly sympathetic to Muslims, the ones who want to see this nation destroyed and all who live here who won't convert to their false religion dead!
B. Hussein Obama is part of this new movement I have warned you about, the Religious Left. In case you have been sleeping, there is a new group of people in our nation who call themselves the "religious left." This is a relatively new term so you may not be familiar with it. That is why I felt it was so critical to take the time today to insure you not only understood what it means, but who actually makes up this new group of people. Forty years ago, this group didn't even exist. They have actually evolved and grown tremendously over the past decade.
The "religious left" is made up of people who identify themselves as Christians and hold strong religious beliefs as well as sharing left-wing ideals. Obviously, this group has risen up in opposition to those who have been tagged the "religious right" or the "Christian right." The "Christian right" is that group of Bible-believing Christians who are politically active and seek to elect to office those candidates who hold to Biblical values on the key spiritual issues of our day that are also political issues.
These would be issues like abortion and life related matters, gay marriage, family issues, the proliferation of the pornography industry, and the drive to remove God from the public square. Those in the "religious left" actually take an anti-Biblical position on these issues and are also heavily involved in the ecumenical movement, environmental issues, opposing war for any reason, world hunger, and social issues like healthcare, welfare, and education.
Interesting that B. Hussein Obama's first bill as a United States Senator was a world hunger relief bill that they are trying to ramrod through as we speak. This would force the United States to pay apx. $900 billion MORE than we already spend on world hunger. While we have to do our best to feed the hungry, I guess Obama never read where Jesus said, "The poor you will have with you always."
There is nothing wrong with pursuing these noble social issues, Believers should be more involved on those fronts. The problem with this group is their anti-Biblical position on the key spiritual issues of our day and their involvement in these ecumenical movements that require you to set aside the Absolute Truths of the Bible. However, they support the legalized slaughter of babies, redefining marriage to include men with men and women with women, perverting the family by brining children into homes with homosexual parents, and embrace ecumenical fellowships with all of the cults and false religions of the world. They deny the inspiration and inerrancy of the Bible, have rejected God's Word for the Absolute Truth it represents, and have bought into the lie of the world that there are "many roads that lead to God." These are the people who make up the "religious left!"
B. Hussein Obama's church was the liberal Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, pastored by the racist Dr. Jeremiah Wright. Wright preaches a message of black separatism and is a racist in every sense of the word. The UCC is one of the most liberal denominations there is. They ordain practicing homosexuals, support slaughtering babies, and preach the social Gospel of the religious left, having abandoned the inspiration of the Word and preaching the true Gospel of Jesus Christ. The queen of the New Age witches, Oprah, also called Trinity UCC her church.
A modern day foe of God, Barry Lynn of Americans United for Separation of Church and State is ordained thru this liberal and ungodly denomination. Lynn has made it his life's work to try and silence and destroy true works of God, and last year came after Liveprayer for my stand on satanic cult member Mitt Romney, by trying to get the IRS to take away our tax-exempt status. His efforts failed because we did nothing wrong. The fact is, Lynn has tried to get the IRS to revoke the tax-exempt status of over 70 churches and ministries over the years, and has failed to be successful even once!
I love you and care about you so much. Revival is currently sweeping the land, however, it is not the spiritual revival that will be coming very soon. This current revival is a political one that has transcended into an emotional charged movement of false hope and promises. The leader of this cult-like movement is B. Hussein Obama. He is no more the next savior of this nation than I am the next great heart surgeon, and I hate blood! I am not even going to talk about his inexperience and the great peril all Americans will be in with this "child" at the helm in today's complex and dangerous world of terror and global economics. I'm not even going to talk about the fact he is the most liberal of the 50 United States Senators and what his Presidency would do to this nation. I am most concerned with people who know the Lord getting caught up in and becoming part of this movement of hype and false hope.
My friend, the only true hope is Jesus. The only true answers are found in the Word of God. God gave us in black and white in the Bible, specifically how to deal with all of the issues in our lives and in this world. More troubling than anything is that Obama won't even speak in specifics, only flowery platitudes. Once you tear away the hype, the smoke and mirrors, all you are left with is empty rhetoric that inspires people and makes them feel good, but leads them nowhere. However, it is empty since it doesn't give them any real direction. Hope is the greatest gift one person can give to another, however, if that hope is in anything else but the Lord and His Word it is false hope.
What we do know about B. Hussein Obama is that he supports the slaughtering of innocent babies and trying to redefine God's Holy Institution of Marriage to include those who choose to engage in deviant forms of sex. Both positions clearly in rebellion to the Lord and to the Bible. Obama, like each follower of Christ has to heed the words of Jesus and decide which master he is going to serve. You can only serve one. I am challenging you today to decide who YOU are going to follow, B. Hussein Obama, the most recent false messiah, or Jesus Christ, the true Messiah!!!
In His love and service, Your friend and brother in Christ, Bill Keller
