Some of the final quotes from President Obama’s Cairo speech to the Muslim world include, “We have the power to make the world we seek…The people of the world can live together in peace. We know this is God’s vision.”
President Obama seems to think that a consensus of nations can plot their own future. He overlooks the fact that according to his Bible the final alignment of the nations has already been established by the sovereign God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. When men think that the alignment of nations is at its strongest, it will really be at its weakest. Man’s final attempt to align the nations into a one-world system was described by the prophet Daniel over 2,500 years ago. The history of the rise and fall of the nations was revealed in King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream interpreted by Daniel.
“You, O king, are a king of kings. For the God of heaven has given you a kingdom, power, strength, and glory…but after you shall arise another kingdom inferior to yours; then another, a third kingdom…which shall rule over all the earth. And the fourth kingdom shall be as strong as iron… whereas you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly if iron, the kingdom shall be …partly strong and partly fragile. As you saw iron mixed with ceramic clay…they will not adhere to one another, just as iron does not mix with clay. And in the days of these kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever…” Daniel 2:37-44
God’s sovereignty over the nations was confirmed shortly after Daniel interpreted the above dream when Nebuchadnezzar had a second dream.
“…this is the interpretation, O king, and this is the decree of the Most High…the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, and gives it to whomever He chooses.’” Daniel 4:24-25
In view of the above proclamation, President Obama had the audacity to say that man has “the power to make the world we seek.” The president then addressed the noble goal of the entire world living together in peace.
“And Jesus answered and said to them: ‘take heed that no one deceives you…you will hear of wars and rumors of wars…for nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom…these are the beginning of sorrows.’” Matthew 24: 4, 6-7
“But concerning the times and the seasons…the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, ‘Peace and safety!’ then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman…”
I Thessalonians 5:1-3
“Then I (Jeremiah) said, ‘Ah, Lord GOD! Behold, the prophets say to them, ‘you shall not see the sword…but I will give you assured peace in this place.’ And the LORD said to me, ‘The prophets prophesy lies in My name. I have not sent them, commanded them, nor spoken to them; they prophesy to you a false vision…and the deceit of their heart.’” Jeremiah 14:13-14
While peace is an admirable goal it will not come about as suggested by president Obama. Peace will only come after man has made many futile attempts to achieve it on their own. According to President Obama’s own Bible peace will only be realized after Christ returns to judge the kings of the earth and then He Himself will align and rule the nations.
“The Lord…shall execute kings in the day of His wrath. He shall judge among the nations, He shall fill the places with dead bodies, He shall execute the heads of many countries.” Psalm 110:5-6
“He shall rule them with a rod of iron; they shall be dashed to pieces like the potter’s vessels…” Revelation 2:27
Therefore, the president’s words, “the people of the world can live together in peace…we know this is God’s vision” are really just his own vision and his naïve assessment of reality.
Inasmuch as Mr. Obama is our president, we should give him the benefit of the doubt and trust that he really thinks that he is saying and doing the right things. However, he is really speaking in total contradiction to his own Bible. But his words have great appeal to the politically correct and the Islamic community. Islamic nations now know that we will not impede their progress with their imperialistic agenda. Not only will we not impede them but we are enabling them to pursue their goals. For Example Mr. Obama stated in his Cairo speech: “That is why I am committed to working with American Muslims to ensure that they can fulfill “Zakat.” Zakat is defined as obligatory charitable giving by Muslims which is one of the “Five Pillars of Islam.” Mr. Obama’s pledge to help in this area will most likely be found in revisions to our tax code.
This series has in no way intended to be anti Obama but rather to expose the inconsistencies of his Cairo speech where he claims that his vision and strategy is the same as “God’s vision” for the nations. There are absolutely no similarities in the two.
Perhaps when the “cash for clunkers” program expires America will be awakened to her real challenges. It is a sad truth that we are becoming more passive and tolerant of the enemy every day while each day they are becoming more determined to bring “real change” to America.
Stay alert and informed!
