Todd did a great job laying out one of the current delusions covering the world. God warned that in the last days He would pour out strong delusions on the unbelievers so that they would be mislead. We are ripe for the picking, this world we live in, and I feel the harvest is very close.
Maranatha, Lord come quickly!

I had already concluded that America had made one of the greatest political mistakes by reelecting Barack Obama. Last Monday, I had to shield my eyes and ears from watching that error being played out. The good news–if you call it that–is that we are at the halfway point of his administration.
It is rather spooky to see how the liberal media has applied labels to Obama that offend the core biblical values of most Christians. Newsweek’s May 21, 2012, issue caused a stir when it declared Obama the country’s “first gay president.” The president lived up to this title when, while speaking about civil liberty accomplishments, he gave the first ever shout-out to a gay bar in an inaugural address.
The far worse classification being used by people are ones that directly compare Obama to God. They are becoming so numerous, he could just as well be called our first deity president. Here are some examples:
A Florida A&M professor named Barbara Thompson published a book titled, The Gospel According to Apostle Barack. In this book, Thompson likens Obama to Jesus Christ.
Street vendors and souvenir stores across Washington D.C. are selling posters depicting President Obama as Jesus Christ.
Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx recently called Barack Obama “our lord and savior.”
“This president has brought us out of the dark and into the light.”–Michelle Obama, at a campaign rally on April 17, 2012.
In a cover story for the inauguration, Newsweek had a side image of Obama with the title “The Second Coming.”
Newsweek had previously depicted President Obama as a Hindu deity Lord Shiva with the caption, “God of all things.”
Minister Louis Farrakhan, the controversial leader of the Nation of Islam, has declared Barack Obama to be the Messiah. Farrakhan said, “You are the instruments that God is gonna use to bring about universal change, and that is why Barack has captured the youth. And he has involved young people in a political process that they didn’t care anything about. That’s a sign. When the Messiah speaks, the youth will hear, and the Messiah is absolutely speaking.”
Then there is the classic quote by MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, “This is bigger than Kennedy. . . . This is the New Testament.” “I felt this thrill going up my leg. I mean, I don’t have that too often. No, seriously. It’s a dramatic event.”
I guess it should be no wonder why Barack Obama used two Bibles for swearing in. One Bible wouldn’t be enough for man of such glory. I would ask for his hands to be checked for blisters, but he was wearing gloves for protection. Since a fly repeatedly landed on his face during a recent press conference, the only lordship title that Obama deserves is Lord of the Flies (Beelzebub).
The most troubling thing about all these divine remarks about Obama is that there have been no rejections of these statements by the man himself. I know the president lives in a bubble, but he has to be aware that people are making blasphemous comments about him. Judging by his narcissistic personality, he at least views them as a benign form of flattery. Knowing the corrupting nature of power, I fear he may actually agree with his admirers.
I see this unnatural affection for President Obama as one huge demonic delusion. He is in fact one of the worst presidents in our nation’s history. Under his watch, debt and welfare rolls have exploded to unsustainable levels. There has also been a huge increase in hard-core drug use.
Our nation is rapidly headed for disaster, and the blind devotions being paid to Obama are preventing the America people from seeing the source of our problems. Just ask yourself: When is the last time you heard the president being criticized in the media? I remember a time when networks had reporters whose only jobs were to pester the president at every public event. Obama rarely takes questions from reporters, and still they worship him.
I fear that Obama’s god complex is going to be cured the hard way. By the time his second term ends in 2016, our nation’s problems will be so profound and numerous, the folks who deified Obama will greatly regret their remarks.
“The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; The God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour…” 2 Samuel 22:2b-3a.

In Romans 10 Paul lays out how salvation is open to all, Jew and Gentile. He writes:
“For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.” – Romans 10:4-5
What he is saying is now it is not about works or how closely to a “T” you follow the law. But that it is through God’s gift of grace through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. It is really that simple, and yet a hard step for some of us.
“That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” – Romans 10:9
Christ is the narrow gate (Matthew 7:13-14), through faith in Him you will be saved. It is the only “works” that God requires for eternal salvation.
