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
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
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
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.
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.

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
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
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 –

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).
