Obama: American Idol with Feet of Clay

 

“Thou, O King, sawest, and behold a great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible, this image’s head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass, his legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay. Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces” – (Dan.2:31-34).

 

   (Dan.2) is the bedrock of all end time prophecy and to understand end time prophecy correctly you must have a true understanding of (Dan.2). This chapter deals with the period of time known as “the times of the Gentiles.” This period began with the captivity of Judah by Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon 600 years before the birth of Christ, and will end with the second coming of Jesus Christ at the beginning of the Millennium kingdom of God on earth ruled by Emperor Jesus Christ. It begins with Emperor Nebuchadnezzar and runs through the reign of Antichrist, the last empire of iron and clay. Antichrist will be a Gentile emperor like the others.

 

   The prophet Daniel describes the five Gentile world empires scheduled to rule over the earth until Jesus returns. The empires were pictured as an image which King Nebuchadnezzar saw in a dream that Daniel interpreted through the Holy Spirit. It was a multi-metallic image. The head was of gold and represented Nebuchadnezzar’s Babylonian Empire. The breast and arms of silver symbolized the Media-Persia Empire that conquered Babylon. The belly and thighs of brass depicted the third world empire – Greece. The fourth world empire, the mightiest of them all, was pictured by legs of iron. This was the Roman Empire and its iron legs showed their awesome strength and the powerful spread of her conquests and lengthy span of rule for 1000 years. Iron for war machinery – strong as iron. God created Italy like a leg for exactly this reason.

 

   But the feet of iron and clay were partly strong and partly weak. This is Satan’s Super Empire and the greatest superpower with the greatest military in world history. This is the final empire of Antichrist and the revived Roman Empire of these end times. It will be crushed by Emperor Jesus, the smiting stone, at his second coming to set up His Empire that lasts forever. Satan’s Super Empire of Antichrist is the U.S. Empire and we will be helped by 10 European nations out of whom the U.S. was birthed. Our soon coming president will become the president of the world and in reality an emperor. He will be the Antichrist-Beast. The American idol is the final emperor of Nebuchadnezzar’s idol dream. Our idol president will be worshipped worldwide.

 

   Nebuchadnezzar’s ‘image’ of a man didn’t just show empires, but it also shows idolatry and emperor worship. When a man becomes emperor and rules the world, he becomes so proud that there is only one thing left, he becomes a God and is worshipped. The Egyptians believed their Pharaoh’s descended from the sun god. The Greek emperor, Alexander the Great, was worshipped as God. Babylon and Persia and Rome did the same. In the Roman Empire, worship of emperors grew in intensity and finally they were made gods and were worshipped. Open conflict between Christians and Rome was over this emperor worship. They would not sacrifice to Caesar, nor call him Lord, and many were murdered for their faith. Obama, the American Idol president, would fit perfectly into Nebuchadnezzar’s prophetic idol dream. He wrote two books about dreams.

 

   This emperor worship will come to a head again in finality with the worship of the Beast, the last emperor when Jesus returns who Jesus defeats at Armageddon – (Rev.19). The worship of the Beast and receiving his mark will show who belong to Christ and who belong to Antichrist. It is through idols that Satan receives worship. Image worship is devil worship. It is written – “What say I then that the idol is anything, or that which is offered to idols anything? But I say, that the things that the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils” – (I Cor.10:19,20). Since the day Christ saved me out of Roman Catholic idolatry, I’ve never worshipped idols again. Idolatry is condemned by God’s Word. Worship of the true God cannot be through idols and images. Only false gods with the devils behind them are worshipped through images. True faith “is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” – (Heb.11:1). “For we walk by faith, not by sight” – (2 Cor.5:7). Idolatry is an abomination to God.

 

   There is presently running for president of the U.S. a man named Barack Obama. He is being called ‘the American idol.’ The news media and Hollywood are fawning over him and are using their great power to make him an idol worldwide as his worldwide trip to Europe and the Mideast, the last weeks of July, 2008 have shown. He’s been called a political rock idol for two years now. The nation of ‘Media’ was an instrument of God to destroy old Babylon-Iraq and ‘media’ power today in the U.S. and around the world will ultimately destroy U.S. If Obama becomes president, he will rule over Old Babylon-Iraq because we recently conquered them as Media-Persia, Greece, and Rome also did. And this conquest of Old Babylon-Iraq proves U.S. to be the New Babylon of Revelation in the end times. The U.S. embassy in Iraq may very well be the President’s eastern White House. The Obamanation of desolation is coming soon, and then will come the abombination of desolation – (2 Pet.3:10).

 

   Babylon-Iraq is our giant military base in the MidEast to help the American Empire rule the world. It also gives U.S. the oil we need to run our military machine. We now have a full-fledged empire and soon comes our emperor. We will lose our Republic and our freedom and our right to vote like the Roman republic of old. And our ‘president of the world’ will be worshipped as God. If we make him an idol, soon we will worship the idol and be forced to wear his mark in the forehead or right hand. He will be the last Caesar worshipped on earth.

 

   All of our Hollywood and TV idols and sports idols and singing idols etc, has now become a president idol and celebrity-in-chief. And unlike the other idols that have no political power, our president has the power to force you to worship Him. One billion Catholics and other religions are worshipping idols. The pope is an idol and we are programmed to now worship a living president of the world – the Antichrist-Beast. Beware of Obama the American idol with his global rock star appeal – (he polls better around the world than he does in the U.S.). It’s an American Idol-ing of empire as he struts around the world, having photo-ops and his image flashed around the world as the American Political Idol in the cause of healing the ‘U.S. image’ abroad. And all of this made possible by global media empires. O, yes the idol-making ‘media’ will destroy U.S. with their cameras.

 

   Like the Republic of Rome, we are demanding an emperor to worship and to rule our empire; we are demanding our Caesar to worship because we have turned our backs on Christ and become exceedingly wicked. Because we are wicked God will give U.S. a wicked ruler. It makes absolutely no difference who we vote for because – “that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men” – (Dan.4:17). And then God turned King Nebuchadnezzar into a beast and so we await the Antichrist-Beast soon to come.

 

   Has there ever been a more telling example of our celebrity-driven, idol-making culture than watching Obama, engaged in national politics for less than one Senate term, on the threshold of winning the presidency? We have become so idolatrous of our walking, talking movie and t.v. and computer images; we have become so softened by our American Idol TV program, that Satan is about to give U.S. what he’s been programming us for – the president idol. But one day the curtain will be torn away and the satanic wizard will be shown to U.S. And Harry Potter, Satan’s wizard, is also preparing the way for him. We are worshipping the Devil in the occult and New Age, and soon we will worship the Devil-possessed beast. “Little children, keep yourselves from idols” – (I Jn.5:21).

 

   Obama is a very charismatic man who has attracted millions of followers, but he leads with delusive enticement, and like the Pied Piper, he will lead U.S. to destruction. He has been featured on ‘American Idol’ on TV, but like the American Idol winners, he’s an unknown quantity.

 

   But President Obama will not only have iron feet and a strong military to rule the world, he also will have clay feet. And this will be seen when Christ comes back with his Christian army and crushes the Beast at the Battle of Armageddon. Christ returns as the smiting stone – “And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war – (not like our unrighteous war of aggression in Iraq). And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with is he should smite the nations (there’s the smiting stone): and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet (pope) that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone” (Stoned by brimstone – amen) O yes, Christ the smiting stone – amen – (Rev.19:11,14-16,19,20).

 

   Are you ready for the rapture soon to come? Have you been saved and born again and baptized by the Holy Ghost into the body of Christ, the Church? Water baptism can never wash away your sins inwardly, only the baptism of the Holy Spirit can – “For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body…” – (I Cor.12:13). Only Christ can baptize you into His Church made without hands. The gospel of Christ is the living seed of eternal life, that is germinated in you by believing the gospel. “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever” – (I Pet.1:23). Your fleshly birth from the seed of your earthly father will soon die, but your spiritual birth from the heavenly father gives eternal life. Jesus said – “That which is born of the flesh is flesh: and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again” – (Jn.3:6,7).

 

   Be born again by the greatest Daddy in the universe – the Father of the body of Christ, the true Church. Repent of your sins and believe on Christ in your heart by faith and you will receive forgiveness of sins and become a new born creature in Christ. God has set before you eternal life and eternal death – the choice is yours – choose life. “And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son” – (I Jn.5:11). Watch and pray.

 

   The American idol is the final Gentile emperor of Nebuchadnezzar’s idol dream – the feet of iron and clay. Our celebrity-in-chief president will be worshipped worldwide. He is the first Beast. The second Beast (Rev.13:11) is the False Prophet, the pope, as he rules over one billion Catholic idolaters. He is the ‘idol’ shepherd – (Zech.11:17).
