Christ: The Transformational Man – Not Obama
“For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel: for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works” – (2 Cor.11:13-15).
Colin Powell proclaimed Barrack Obama a ‘transformational figure’ and said he would vote for Obama, a Democrat, even though he has been a Republican. Another one said “I don’t know whether he’s a transformational figure, but I’m certain this is a transformational time in our country. Obama has been pushed to the edge of victory by an amazing transformation in the political life of this nation. He is the beneficiary of a shift across racial and generational lines.”
The basic definition of ‘transform’ means ‘to change.’ And Obama has been running on a slogan of ‘Change we can believe in,’ and so there is no doubt that he is a ‘transformational man.’ But transformation can be for good or evil. Satan, through his ministers, has been transforming our godly Christian heritage into evil, especially during the last 50 years. Christ has been transforming people from evil to good, and from sinners to saints, for 200 years through the miracle of the new birth.
But as my text verses show, Satan is very active in the transformational business. He is a very deceitful, cunning and wicked fallen angel, who was once an angel of light, but now is an angel of darkness. He is very adept in deceiving human begins by transforming himself into someone that is good and will not show his true evil character until it suits him. And his ministers are very adept at this same kind of transformation as they pretend to be ministers of good and light, when in fact they are unsaved ministers of evil and darkness.
Satan’s ministers can be either political ministers or religious ministers as Satan works in both spheres and power. His ministers can be the Prime Minister of a nation or the Catholic Pope. His ministers will be the Antichrist and the False Prophet who will be marvelous actors, pretending to be good, when in fact they are evil.
Judas was an excellent example of a false apostle who was transformed into an apostle of Christ. He was one of the twelve apostles and was the church treasurer and he was a thief and stole the church money. He also betrayed the Lord Jesus for a handful of silver to be crucified and then committed suicide. He was possessed by Satan himself, the master of evil transformation. “And after the sup Satan entered into him …” – (Jn.13:27).
Very soon now, in these end times, will come two transformational ministers of Satan -The Antichrist-Beast and the False Prophet-Beast. They will be the most deceitful of all the false Christs and false prophets that went before them. These wicked men will transform themselves into good men and deceive everybody in the world who aren’t saved and have not the Spirit of truth. Not doubt Antichrist will be possessed by Satan, the master transformational artist himself, as he did with Judas. They will be the U.S. President and the Pope: the two superpowers of politics and religion.
It is easy for people to be deceived by
these two because they have been deceived and prepared by Satan for
generations. What once was evil is now good –
“Woe unto them that call evil good and good evil; that put darkness for light,
and light for darkness; that put
bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter” - (Is.5:20). God’s Bible standards
of right and wrong have been transformed and changed. Today, even God’s
Obama, the transformation man, probably will transform our country, but it may very well be a transformation of good into more evil. As God’s watchman I warn you to watch him very closely in the coming years.
God wants to transform and change you into a new creature in Christ. It’s called being born again and it describes what happens to you when you’re truly saved from your sins. “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold all things are become new” – (2 Cor.5:17). You become a new man – “Created in Christ Jesus” – (Eph.2:10). For 2000 years millions of people have testified to changed and transformed lives after being truly saved and born again through Christ. There is a deep and radical change that takes place. You have a new heart and a new Holy Spirit and your understanding and mind is radically changed. You have new godly friends and see the world with new enlightened eyes. You change from evil to good, a godly change. This is truly the change we can believe in. Your black heart will be washed white in the blood of Christ. This is God’s transformational change for blacks and whites. Be born again and transformed today. Repent of your sins and believe in Christ in your heart by faith and you will be baptized by the Holy Spirit into the true church not made with hands.
Christ is the transformational man – not Antichrist.
