About one in four Americans suspect that President Barack Obama might be the antichrist, more than a third believe that global warming is a hoax and more than half suspect that a secretive global elite is trying to set up a New World Order, according to a poll released on Tuesday.
The survey, which was conducted by Public Policy Polling, asked a sample of American voters about a number of conspiracy theories, phrasing the questions in eye-catching language that will have the country’s educators banging their heads on their desks.
The study revealed that 13% of respondents thought Obama was “the antichrist”, while another 13% were “not sure” – and so were at least appeared to be open to the possibility that he might be. Some 73% of people were able to say outright that they did not think Obama was “the antichrist”.
The survey also showed that 37% of Americans thought that global warming was a hoax, while 12% were not sure and a slim majority – 51% – agreed with the overwhelming majority view of the scientific establishment and thought that it was not.
The survey also revealed that 28% of people believed in a sinister global New World Order conspiracy, aimed at ruling the whole world through authoritarian government. Another 25% were “not sure” and only a minority of American voters – 46% – thought such a conspiracy theory was not true. source – Guardian UK
Obama as the Antichrist?
“And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done. “ Daniel 11:36

The god of this world
“In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” 2 Corinthians 4:4
Yet again, President Obama’s Thanksgiving message eschewed any direct reference to thanking God, making this the fourth straight year in which the President of the United States has ignored the central message of the holiday in favor of political grandstanding.
This year, Obama’s central message was that now that he’s been re-elected, Americans should agree with all of his policies. His unity routine sounds strangely empty after a campaign in which he focused on dividing Americans:
But most of all, it’s a time to give thanks for each other, and for the incredible bounty we enjoy.
That’s especially important this year. As a nation, we’ve just emerged from a campaign season that was passionate, noisy, and vital to our democracy. But it also required us to make choices – and sometimes those choices led us to focus on what sets us apart instead of what ties us together; on what candidate we support instead of what country we belong to ….
We’re also grateful that this country has always been home to Americans who see these blessings not simply as gifts to enjoy, but as opportunities to give back. Americans who believe we have a responsibility to look out for those less fortunate – to pull each other up and move forward together.
How are we supposed to move forward together, you ask? Why, with greater government spending, of course!
As for God, here was the only mention – as a throwaway line in a hackneyed aphorism, used constantly by this president for communitarian sloganeering:
“As Americans, we are a bold, generous, big-hearted people. When our brothers and sisters are in need, we roll up our sleeves and get to work – not for the recognition or the reward, but because it’s the right thing to do. Because there but for the grace of God go I. And because here in America, we rise or fall together, as one nation and one people.”
No mention of thanking God. None.
But, of course, we’re used to this. In 2011, there was no mention of God at all. In 2010, Obama was closer, but still missed the mark (“we’ll spend some time taking stock of what we’re thankful for: the God-given bounty of America, and the blessings of one another”). In 2009, Obama didn’t thank God, either.
Compare that to Obama’s Thanksgiving Day proclamations, which he does not read or speak. Those are filled with God – at least for the last three years. In his first year, filled with the vim and vigor of his original election, Obama preferred to eschew any direct thanking of God even in his proclamation.
2012: “On Thanksgiving Day, individuals from all walks of life come together to celebrate this most American tradition, grateful for the blessings of family, community, and country. Let us spend this day by lifting up those we love, mindful of the grace bestowed upon us by God and by all who have made our lives richer with their presence.”
2011: “As we gather in our communities and in our homes, around the table or near the hearth, we give thanks to each other and to God for the many kindnesses and comforts that grace our lives. Let us pause to recount the simple gifts that sustain us, and resolve to pay them forward in the year to come.”
2010: “As Americans gather for the time-honored Thanksgiving Day meal, let us rejoice in the abundance that graces our tables, in the simple gifts that mark our days, in the loved ones who enrich our lives, and in the gifts of a gracious God.”
Of course, nobody sees these proclamations, so Obama doesn’t have to be embarrassed about them.
It’s no wonder that this President’s Democratic National Committee platform tried to remove God.
He’s not a big fan of the Big Guy. Even on Thanksgiving. After all, what need do you have for God when you’ve got the state? source – Breitbart

All hope for America is lost
It has been well said that with the electing of Muslim Barack Hussein Obama, we put into power the first post-American president, and so we have. Now it seems that after 4 brutal years of his reign, his tearing down of everything good that this country ever stood for, the American people in their rebellion and hatred of God have returned this man to office to finish the evil work which he began in 2008.
America, you are finished. Our days of being any kind of a world power are now officially at an end. We have re-elected a leader which hates Israel, hates freedom, and is against everything that God stands for.
We have been judged for our national sins and been given a ruler, a dark king over us which is the just recompense of our sins.
We will now enter into a prolonged period of wars, famine, of disease, of unrequited misery.
The $16,000,000,000,000.00 debt we carry will only grow until it bursts us at the seams.
Obama now will finish his work of crippling our financial system, adding millions more to welfare and food stamps, and decimating our military.
We will continue slaughtering babies by the millions through abortion, and glorifying the abomination of homosexuality.
A president that allows us to be attacked, repeatedly, and does nothing about it. Soon Sharia Law will be forced on us, and America will be given oven to Islam.
This is why he ran for office, to submit America to Islam.
At home in Chicago, the president claimed victory. “This happened because of you. Thank you” he tweeted to supporters.
Whatever befalls us from this point is our own fault. We chose to spit in God’s face, and in return He has given us the leader we deserve. As God gave Egypt pharaoh to judge them for their sins, so we have been given Barack Hussein Obama, the Muslim King.
Make no mistake, judgement has arrived. And we shall not escape. Israel now will attack Iran’s nuclear facilities. They must attack, they have no choice. Netanyahu knows he has no friend in America, and the window for waiting has now officially closed.
The time in the bible known as the ‘time of Jacob’s trouble’ will soon be upon the whole world. We also know this time as the Great Tribulation. But before that Day happens, there is a way out for those of us who trust in Jesus Christ. It’s called the Rapture, the day where Jesus comes back for all those who trust in Him and look for His return.
“Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ” Titus 2:13
This is our only way out, our only chance of escape. We pray you put your trust and faith in Jesus of Nazareth, and be accounted worthy to escape the Tribulation that is to come upon the whole earth.
Till we meet again…
Selling Obama As Messiah
“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 Corinthians 11:13-15
Street vendors across downtown Charlotte are selling posters and artwork depicting President Obama as Jesus Christ and the Democratic National Convention is expected to feature a stained-glass window backdrop during their meeting.
One poster features an image of the president in prayer with the headline, “Prophecy Fulfilled.”
“Barak is of Hebrew origin and its meaning is ‘flash of lightning,” the poster notes, referencing a passage in in the Old Testament book of Judges.
Hussein, they allege, is a Biblical word meaning “good and handsome.” “So you see, Barak was destined to be a good and handsome man that would rise like a flash of lightning to win victory in a battle against overwhelming odds,” the poster read.
The posters were being sold outside security zones at the Democratic National Convention. The posters are not sanctioned by the DNC.
An Obama calendar, obtained by Fox News, features two religious images of the Commander-in-Chief. The month of August includes a photograph of Obama’s birth certificate with the words “Heaven sent.” The president was born on Aug. 4th.
The entry also includes a photograph of Obama along with a passage of Scripture from the New Testament.
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life,” the entry read — referencing John 3:16.
The month of November includes an image of individuals with their hands on Obama’s back — with the words “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.”
Fox News also obtained a photograph of a DNC stage design. It resembled a giant stained glass window. It’s unclear what the imagery will be used for.
The comparisons to Jesus Christ have brought strong condemnation from some evangelicals — including Robert Jeffress, pastor of the First Baptist Church in Dallas, TX.
“If Barack Obama is the promised Messiah, I think there are going to be many Christians who are profoundly disappointed,” Jeffress told Fox News. “One only has to look at Obama’s record to understand that he is absolutely, positively not the promised One.” source – Fox News
Conspiracy theory becoming conspiracy fact
The truly amazing thing about this article from Scientic American is how very bold and open the powers that be have become in decalring their want of a One World Government. In the old days, a writer on ‘conspiracy theory’ would have to dig and dig and dig and barely come up with enough fact to show that there is indeed a conspiracy to create the world governmental system described in the book of Revelation. But now, it seems just about every where you turn there are top-level politicians, sceintists and public speakers openly stating that the problems of the world will only be solved by creating a One World Government. The article below goes even further and fantasizes about a “malevolent dictator”, known to bible students as the Antichrist, who might seek to take control of said world governemt. Which leads me to ask…have they been reading the bible lately? Sure sounds like it!
“And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.” Revelation 13:1
From Scientific American: A policy article authored by several dozen scientists appeared online March 15 in Science to acknowledge this point: “Human societies must now change course and steer away from critical tipping points in the Earth system that might lead to rapid and irreversible change. This requires fundamental reorientation and restructuring of national and international institutions toward more effective Earth system governance and planetary stewardship.”
The report summarized 10 years of research evaluating the capability of international institutions to deal with climate and other environmental issues, an assessment that found existing capabilities to effect change sorely lacking. The authors called for a “constitutional moment” at the upcoming 2012 U.N. Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio in June to reform world politics and government. Among the proposals: a call to replace the largely ineffective U.N. Commission on Sustainable Development with a council that reports to the U.N. General Assembly, at attempt to better handle emerging issues related to water, climate, energy and food security. The report advocates a similar revamping of other international environmental institutions.
Unfortunately, far more is needed. To be effective, a new set of institutions would have to be imbued with heavy-handed, transnational enforcement powers. There would have to be consideration of some way of embracing head-in-the-cloud answers to social problems that are usually dismissed by policymakers as academic naivete. In principle, species-wide alteration in basic human behaviors would be a sine qua non, but that kind of pronouncement also profoundly strains credibility in the chaos of the political sphere. Some of the things that would need to be contemplated: How do we overcome our hard-wired tendency to “discount” the future: valuing what we have today more than what we might receive tomorrow? Would any institution be capable of instilling a permanent crisis mentality lasting decades, if not centuries? How do we create new institutions with enforcement powers way beyond the current mandate of the U.N.? Could we ensure against a malevolent dictator who might abuse the power of such organizations?
Behavioral economics and other forward-looking disciplines in the social sciences try to grapple with weighty questions. But they have never taken on a challenge of this scale, recruiting all seven billion of us to act in unison. The ability to sustain change globally across the entire human population over periods far beyond anything ever attempted would appear to push the relevant objectives well beyond the realm of the attainable. If we are ever to cope with climate change in any fundamental way, radical solutions on the social side are where we must focus, though. The relative efficiency of the next generation of solar cells is trivial by comparison. source – Scientific America
The Vatican and the New World Order
Related Story: Walking Away From Rome
“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” (Revelation 13:16-17)
On October 24, 2011, the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, issued a 41-page text entitled, “Toward Reforming the International Financial and Monetary Systems in the Context of Global Public Authority.”
It is the Vatican’s call for a gradual creation of a “world political authority” with broad powers to regulate financial markets and rein in the “inequalities and distortions of capitalist development.” The document referenced the teachings of popes over the last four decades on the need for a universal public authority that would go beyond national interests. The document cites the current growing inequality of the rich and the poor of this world as the main factor underlying the need for creating such authority. Considering the current European debt crisis and the birth of the Occupy Wall Street movement, the Vatican has moved a step closer to fulfilling biblical prophecy of a New One World System.
The Vatican’s document mentioned that one major step should be to reform the international monetary system. It actually envisions the creation of a “central world bank” that would regulate the flow of monetary exchanges, further saying that the International Monetary Fund had lost the ability to control the amount of credit risk taken on by the system.
Further proposals in this document included:
- Some taxation measures of financial transactions where a “world reserve fund” will be created from revenues.
- Recapitalization of public banks that lead to conditional supports based on “rewarding virtuous behavior” aimed at developing the real economy.
- Looking into a more effective management of financial shadow markets that are largely uncontrolled today.
“The document calls for a new global economic authority that could impose penalties on member states as “way of ensuring that they possess efficient markets,” said Roman Catholic Bishop Mario Toso at a press conference.
While the Vatican document focused on financial issues, it envisioned a much wider potential role for the global political authority. The agenda also includes peace and security, disarmament and arms control, protection of human rights, and management of migration flows and food security. (James Thavis, “Vatican Issues Major Document on Global Financial Reform,” Catholic News Service, October 24, 2011)
“‘In a world on its way to rapid globalization, the reference to a world authority becomes the only horizon compatible with the new realities of our time and the needs of humankind,’ it said. ‘Helping to usher in this new society is a duty for everyone, especially for Christians’” (ibid).
Somehow, the Vatican’s push for a “global public political authority” and a “central world bank” is all too similar to a familiar scene in Bible prophecies of such a system.
The Bible mentions in Revelation 13 two beasts that will rise into power. The first beast was described to be a political leader and system that was given power over all kindreds, tongues and nations, and all that dwell upon the earth was amazed and followed after this beast (Revelation 13:1-8). But the Bible also describes a religious leader or system known as the “false prophet” in Revelation 19, which is actually also the second beast in Revelation 13.
He is one who performs great signs in the presence of men and he deceives those who dwell on the earth because of the signs he was given to perform. This false prophet is the one who will eventually lead the nations into worshiping the first beast, the political leader. The false prophet causes all to be given a mark on the right hand or forehead that will allow people to buy or sell. Without this mark, no one will be able to access this new world economic system! (Revelation 13:11-17)
The Bible describes this religious leader as seemingly “Christian” but in reality is of the devil, for he is described as one with two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. (Revelation 13:11)
Now isn’t this a stark resemblance of the Vatican’s push for a new global economic authority that could “reward virtuous behavior” as well as “impose penalties” on member states! Talk about paving the way to the New World Order.
