Could Barack Hussein Obama eventually become the obvious fulfillment of at least "The False Prophet" spoken of in the Biblical New-Testament book of Revelation?
Every time some Obamanite "conservative" or "liberal," and especially some non-or-anti-Obama "conservative" or "liberal" (e.g. Michael Medved, Mike Gallagher, Hugh Hewitt, Sean Hannity, Jay Sekulow, one of the GOP 2016 presidential candidates, a U.S. Senator or Rep, etc.), prefaces the name "Obama" with the word "President," they are...by default (and perhaps non-admittedly)....anti-Constitutionally accrediting that anti-true-Christianity, anti-sexual-issues-morality, pro-cultic-islam, Kenyan-not-Hawaiian-born, dictator-of-sorts (or "this President" as they sometimes refer to him) with a designation that he neither deserves nor is worthy of being identified with.
The excuse they often and typically impose (and I remember one Anglican priest mouthing such) is similar to that concerning Adolf Hitler who, by contemptuous means, was given the quasi-deity name of "Fuehrer" by his supporters (though NOT by non-compliant against him)....which was: "you have the respect The Office, not necessarily the man, temporarily appointed by the majority to that Office."
Submitting to evil authority in the pseudo-sacred name of "respecting The Office" reminds me of several seemingly-conflicting/pseudo-contradictory concepts in some Biblical passages:
First Samuel 2:27 And there came a man of God to Eli, and said to him: "Thus the LORD has said: 'I revealed myself to the house of your father when they were in Egypt subject to the house of Pharaoh."
Proverbs 24:21 My son, fear the LORD and the king, and do not disobey either of them;
Proverbs 24:22 for disaster from them will rise suddenly, and who knows the ruin that will come from them both?
Ecclesiastes 8:2 Keep the king's command, and because of your sacred oath be not dismayed;
Ecclesiastes 8:3 go from his presence, do not delay when the matter is unpleasant, for he does whatever he pleases.
Ecclesiastes 8:4 For the word of the king is supreme, and who may say to him: "What are you doing?"
[NOTE: In the case of Nazi Germany, WHO actually was "the king" of the world, and not only of Germany? Was it really the european Adolf Hitler, or instead japanese Emperor Tito, or instead Franklin Delano Roosevelt?
The jew/Jew/whatever, Albert Einstein, saw the proverbial "handwriting on the wall" concerning anti-jew holocaust in the Fatherland, and humbly submitted himself as emigrant taking refuge within largely-Christian America, which was of benefit to generally-Christian Americans, in that the brilliant physicist/mathematician helped develop THE Bombs used at Hiroshima and Nagasaki against suicidal kamikaze-minded, saving tens and tens of thousands of American-GI lives].
Romans 13:1 Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those who exist have been instituted by God.
Hebrews 12:9 Besides this, we have had earthly fathers to discipline us and we respected them. Shall we not much more be subject to the Father of spirits and live?
Contrast those pro-obedience-to-whatever-government verses with:
Exodus 1:17 But the midwives feared God, and did not do as the king of Egypt commanded them, but let the male children live. [and did not abort them, contrary to the demands of Obamascare]
1:18 So the king of Egypt called the midwives, and said to them: "Why have you done this, and let the male children live?"
1:19 The midwives replied to Pharaoh: "Because the Hebrew women are not like the Egyptian women; for they are vigorous and are delivered before the midwife comes to them."
1:20 So God dealt well with the midwives; and the people multiplied and grew very strong.
1:21 And because the midwives feared God he gave them families.
1:22 Then Pharaoh commanded all his people: "Every son that is born to the Hebrews you shall throw into the Nile, but you shall let every daughter live." [and one wonders why there soon was female-harem polygamy of marriages consisting of one man and several women?]
[NOTE: Incidentally, how Christianity-oriented pilgrims, escaping the tyranny of King George in England, related to cultic-spirit half-naked and sometimes-savage american indians as the Puritan pioneers traveled westward in the new America is similar to how Hebrews escaping Pharaoh in Egypt related to the canaanites of the land they were entering:
Numbers 20:14 Moses sent messengers from Kadesh to the king of Edom: "Thus says your brother Israel: You know all the adversity that has befallen us
Numbers 20:17 Now let us pass through your land. We will not pass through field or vineyard, neither will we drink water from a well; we will go along the King's Highway, we will not turn aside to the right hand or to the left, until we have passed through your territory."
Numbers 21:1 When the Canaanite, the king of Arad, who lived in the Negeb, heard that Israel was coming by the way of Atharim, he fought against Israel, and kidnapped some of them.
Numbers 21:21 Then Israel sent messengers to Sihon king of the Amorites, asking:
Numbers 21:22 "Let me pass through your land; we will not turn aside into field or vineyard; we will not drink the water of a well; we will go by the King's Highway, until we have passed through your territory."
Numbers 21:23 But Sihon would not allow Israel to pass through his territory. He gathered all his men together, and went out against Israel to the wilderness, and came to Jahaz, and fought against Israel.
Numbers 21:24 And Israel [self-defensively] slew him with the edge of the sword, and took possession of his land from the Arnon to the Jabbok, as far as to the Ammonites; for Jazer was the boundary of the Ammonites.
Reminds me of what present-day Israelis did during The Six-Day War when provoked and besieged by anti-Zionist antisemitic arabs around them.
Numbers 21:33 Then they turned and went up by the way to Bashan; and Og the king of Bashan came out against them, he and all his people, to battle at Edrei.
Numbers 21:34 But the LORD said to Moses: [Get that? The LORD promised the Hebrews military assistance and HE ordered them to execute (and not genocidally "murder") adversarial aggressors who did not positively respond to reasonable land access, so the Hebrews were NOT "self-appointed" judge/jury/executioners!] Do not fear him; for I have given him into your hand, and all his people, and his land; and you shall do to him as you did to Sihon king of the Amorites, who lived at Heshbon."
Numbers 21:35 So they slew him, and his sons, and all his people, until there was not one survivor left to him; and they possessed his land.]
Continuing on with the antithesis of obeying and submitting to "government:"
Acts 5:29 But Peter and the apostles answered: "We must obey God rather than men."
But, referring back to Hitler and Obama, you see how the name of someone is so crucial, which brings us to ponder when (if ever) then how much (if so) the name "Jesus Christ" has been part of governments (and of course those persons comprising it, both those who govern and those who are governed) of the past in ancient, recent, and current times.
First, my prediction about the near and not-so-near future of inhabitants within the United States.
Several Scripture verses are pertinent as to my take on what will shortly and not-so-shortly happen in America:
Daniel 3:1 [paraphrased] Kenyan-not-Hawaiian-born non-Constitutionally-qualified-nor-accredited Luciferian-Alinsky-apprentice and former-Chicago-neighborhood agitator made a series of pro-abortion-choice, pro-homoqueer, and anti-Netanyahu-settlement Executive Orders in the province of Washington DC.
3:2 Then Obama sent to assemble the satraps, the prefects, and the governors, the counselors, the treasurers, the justices, the magistrates, and all the officials of the provinces to come to the dedication of the Executive Order which King Soetoro-Obama had demonically concocted.
3:3 Then the satraps, the prefects, and the governors, the counselors, the treasurers, the justices, the magistrates, and all the officials of the provinces, were assembled for the dedication of the pro-EPA-nutjob Executive Orders that King Obama had imposed; and they stood near the Oval Office that Obama had infested.
3:4 And the herald proclaimed aloud: "You are commanded, O peoples, nations, and languages,
3:5 that when you hear the sound of the horn, pipe, lyre, trigon, harp, bagpipe, and every kind of music, you are to fall down and obey the Executive Orders which His Highness and Black-Slaves-Reparationists-Worship has scribbled;
3:6 and whoever does not fall down and worship shall immediately be deprived of monthly Social Security and Medicare-Disability checks."
3:7 Therefore, as soon as all the peoples heard the sound of the horn, pipe, lyre, trigon, harp, bagpipe, and every kind of music, all the peoples, nations, and languages fell down and worshiped the Executive Orders which Dictator-by-Executive-Orders Barack Obama had set up.
3:8 Therefore at that time certain anti-religious-right demoncrat subversives came forward and maliciously accused the Jews.
3:9 They said to Obama: "O sovereign-and-essentially-non-stoppable patsy-ized-by-cowardly-wimps king, live forever!
3:10 You, O king, have made a decree, that every man who hears the sound of the horn, pipe, lyre, trigon, harp, bagpipe, and every kind of music, shall fall down and worship the Executive Orders;
3:11 and whoever does not fall down and worship shall be deprived of monthly Social Security and Medicare-Disability checks.
3:12 There are certain Jews whom you have appointed over the affairs of the province of Babylon: Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. These men, O king, pay no heed to you; they do not serve your gods or worship the partisan anti-GOP Executive Orders which you have so graciously screwed genuine Christians with."
3:13 Then Obama in furious rage commanded that Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego be brought. Then they brought these men before the king.
3:14 Obama's black-inferior-gender Attorney General said to them: "Is it true, O Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, that you do not serve Executive Orders which Obama has decreed?
3:15 Now if you are ready when you hear the sound of the horn, pipe, lyre, trigon, harp, bagpipe, and every kind of music, to fall down and worship the Executive Orders which he has made, well and good; but if you do not worship, you shall immediately be deprived of monthly Social Security and Medicare-Disability checks; and who is the god that will deliver you out of my hands?"
3:16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego answered the king: "O Kenyan-not-Hawaiian-born Pakistani's-bin-Laden-influenced Indonesian-foreign-exchange-student with illegal-dual-Social-Security-numbers Obama, we have no need to answer you in this matter.
3:17 If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from being deprived of monthly Social Security and Medicare-Disability checks; and he will deliver us out of your hand, O king.
3:18 But if not, be it known to you, O king, that we will not succumb to your crazed islamic-radical-extremist muslims nor obey your Executive Orders.
3:19 Then Obama was full of fury, and the expression of his face was changed against Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. He ordered the IRS to promptly audit his political opponents in genuine-Christian churches and have local cops arrest each of them for "reckless driving" by not stopping completely at all intersection stop signs, doubled their premium payments for Part B of Medicare by lowering the qualifying poverty-condition cut-off so that they were now being able to apply for Medicaid to be paid back in full by survivors or inheritors of the deceased's estate, forced them all to fill out itemized Form 1040 IRS returns with no personal deduction and no errors against any puzzling and/or confusing thing which the massive IRS rules book stated, and called in Syrian-refugee head-chopping ISIS immigrants to stand by in sleeper-cell mosques throughout the country.
3:20 And he ordered certain mighty men of his down-sized american-militia army of nationwide black-booted SWAT-team-attired cops and marshals plus Black Panthers and their ilk to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, and to be deprived of monthly Social Security and Medicare-Disability checks.
3:21 Then these men were bound in their mantles, their tunics, their hats, and their other garments, and they were deprived of monthly Social Security and Medicare-Disability checks.
3:22 Because the king's order was strict and the Executive Order was very cruel, the commercial businesses associated with those deprived of monthly Social Security and Medicare-Disability checks were bankrupted along with a few belligerent feminist-sexist female-fuzz women pretending to be as tough as men who targeted Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.
3:23 And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, were inhumanely deprived of monthly Social Security and Medicare-Disability checks and quickly sued by homosexuals for "thought crimes."
3:24 Then King Nebuchadnezzar was astonished and rose up in a hurry. He said to his counselors: "Did we not throw three men bound into the fire?" They answered the king: "True, O king."
3:25 He answered, "But I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they are not hurt; and the appearance of the fourth is like a son of the gods."
3:26 Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the door of the burning fiery furnace and said: "Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, servants of the Most High God, come forth, and come here!" Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego came out from the fire.
3:27 And the satraps, the prefects, the governors, and the king's counselors gathered together and saw that the fire had not had any power over the bodies of those men; the hair of their heads was not singed, their mantles were not harmed, and no smell of fire had come upon them.
3:28 Nebuchadnezzar said, "Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who has sent his angel and delivered his servants, who trusted in him, and set at nought the king's command, and yielded up their bodies rather than serve and worship any god except their own God.
3:29 Therefore I make a decree: Any people, nation, or language that speaks anything against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego shall be torn limb from limb, and their houses laid in ruins; for there is no other god who is able to deliver in this way."
3:30 Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in the province of Babylon.
Daniel 6:1 [paraphrased It pleased Kenyan-not-Hawaiian-born pseudo-"President" Barack Hussein Obama to set over the kingdom a hundred and twenty satraps, to be throughout the whole kingdom;
6:2 and over them three presidents, of whom Daniel was one, to whom these satraps should give account, so that the king might suffer no loss.
6:3 Then this Daniel became distinguished above all the other presidents and satraps, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king planned to set him over the whole kingdom.
6:4 Then the presidents and the satraps sought to find a ground for complaint against Daniel with regard to the kingdom; but they could find no ground for complaint or any fault, because he was faithful, and no error or fault was found in him.
6:5 Then these men said: "We shall not find any ground for complaint against this Daniel unless we find it in connection with the law of his God."
6:6 Then these presidents and satraps came by agreement to the king and said to him: "O Anti-Syrian-Christian-Refugees-Dictator Obama, live forever and so on and so on!
6:7 All [and we mean ALL] the presidents of the kingdom, the prefects and the satraps, the counselors and the governors are agreed that the king should establish an ordinance and enforce an interdict, that whoever makes petition to any god or man for thirty days, except to you, O king, shall be thrown into the den of lions.
6:8 Now, O king, establish the interdict and sign the document, so that it cannot be changed, according to the law of Congressional Senators and Representatives, which cannot be revoked."
6:9 Therefore King Obama signed the document and interdict.
6:10 When Daniel knew that the document had been signed, he went to his house where he had windows in his upper chamber open toward Jerusalem; and he got down upon his knees three times a day and prayed and gave thanks before his God, as he had done previously.
6:11 Then these men came by agreement and found Daniel making petition and supplication before his God.
6:12 Then they came near and said before the king, concerning the interdict: "O king, live forever and all that hypocritically-meaningless hype. Did you not sign an interdict, that any man who makes petition to any god or man within thirty days except to you, O king, shall be cast into the den of lions?" The king answered: "The thing stands fast, according to Congress and the Supreme Court, which cannot be revoked."
6:13 Then they answered before the king: "That Daniel, who is one of the exiles from a typical American city or town, pays no heed to you, O king, or the interdict you have signed, but makes his petition three times a day."
6:14 Then Darius the king, when he heard these words, was much distressed, and set his mind to deliver Daniel; and he labored till the sun went down to rescue him.
6:15 Then these men came by agreement to the king, and said to the king: "Know, O king, that it is a law of the Medes and Persians that no interdict or ordinance which the king establishes can be changed."
6:16 Then the king commanded, and Daniel was brought and tossed into the den of lions. The king said to Daniel: "May your God, whom you serve continually, deliver you!"
6:17 And a stone was brought and laid upon the mouth of the den, and the king sealed it with his own signet and with the signet of his lords, that nothing might be changed concerning Daniel.
18 Then the king went to his palace, and spent the night fasting; no diversions were brought to him, and sleep fled from him.
6:19 Then, at break of day, the king arose and went in a hurry to the den of lions.
6:20 When he came near to the den where Daniel was, he cried out in anguish and said to Daniel: "O Daniel, servant of the living God, has your God, whom you serve continually, been able to deliver you from the lions?"
6:21 Then Daniel said to the king: "O king, live forever - and I really mean it.
6:22 My God sent his angel and shut the lions' mouths, and they have not hurt me, because I was found blameless before him; and also before you, O king, I have done no wrong."
6:23 Then the king was exceedingly glad, and commanded that Daniel be taken up out of the den. So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no kind of hurt was found upon him, because he had trusted in his God.
6:24 And the king commanded, and those men who had accused Daniel were brought and heaved into the den of lions--they, their children, and their wives; and before they reached the bottom of the den the lions overpowered them and broke all their bones in pieces.
6:25 Then King Darius wrote to all the peoples, nations, and languages that reside on all the Earth: "Peace be multiplied to you.
6:26 I make a decree, that in all my royal dominion men tremble and fear before the God of Daniel, for He is the living God, enduring forever; His kingdom shall never be destroyed, and His dominion shall be to the end.
6:27 He delivers and rescues, He works signs and wonders in heaven and on Earth, He who has saved Daniel from the power of the lions."
6:28 So this Daniel prospered during the reign of Darius and the reign of Cyrus the Persian.
Daniel 11:35 ...and some of those who are wise shall fall, to refine and to cleanse them and to make them white, until the time of the end, for it is yet for the time appointed.
Daniel 12:10 Many shall purify themselves, and make themselves white, and be refined; but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand; but those who are wise shall understand.
Matthew 7:13 Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is easy, that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many.
7:14 For the gate is narrow and the way is hard, that leads to life, and those who find it are few.
7:15 Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.
7:16 You will know them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thorns, or figs from thistles?
7:17 So, every sound tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears evil fruit.
7:18 A sound tree cannot bear evil fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.
7:19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.
7:20 Thus you will know them by their fruits.
7:21 [paraphrase] "Not every one who says to me: 'Lord, Lord,' [we who do NOT want to obey all the Law but instead want to disobey all or some of the Law some of the time, yet claim that we are saved by grace through faith apart from doing good works of the Law so that none shall boast of a gift one does not deserve] shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.
7:22 [paraphrase] On that day many will say to me: 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and exorcise demons in your name, do many mighty works in your name' while NOT wanting to obey all the Law but instead wanting to disobey all or some of the Law some of the time, claiming that we were saved by grace through faith apart from doing good works of the Law so that we could boast of a gift we did not deserve]?
7:23 And then will I declare to them: 'I never knew you; get outa here, you evildoers.'
Luke 13:23 And some one said to Him: "Lord, will those who are saved be few?" And He said to them:
13:24 "Strive to enter by the narrow door; for many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able.
13:25 When once the householder has risen up and shut the door, you will begin to stand outside and to knock at the door, saying: 'Lord, open to us.' He will answer you: 'I do not know where you come from.'
13:26 Then you will begin to say: 'We ate and drank in your presence, and you taught in our streets.'
13:27 But he will say: 'I tell you, I do not know where you come from; depart from me, all you workers of iniquity!'
13:28 There you will weep and gnash your teeth [but no one will hear you as you sob and grind your teeth while forever suspended in the airless Outer Darkness without anything to stand or sit or lie down on nor push against nor pull while your flesh is being forever consumed within the tormenting invisible flames of the Lake of Fire], when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God and you yourselves thrust out.
13:29 And humans will come from east and west, and from north and south, and sit at table in the kingdom of God.
13:31 At that very hour some Pharisees came, and said to Him: "Get away from here, for [Herod's police] want to kill you."
13:32 And He said to them: "Go and tell that fox: 'Hey, I throw out demons and perform and not commit cures today and tomorrow, and the third day I finish my course.
13:33 Nevertheless I must go on my way today and tomorrow and the day following; for it cannot be that a prophet should perish away from Jerusalem.'
13:34 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, killing the prophets and stoning those who are sent to you! How often would I have gathered your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you would not!
13:35 Hey, your house is rejected. And I tell you, you will not see me until you say: 'Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!'"
Philippians 3:18 For many, of whom I have often told you and now tell you even with tears, live as enemies against the cross of Christ.
Second Timothy 3:12 Indeed all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted,
3:13 while evil persons and impostors will go on from bad to worse, deceivers and deceived.
3:14 But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it 3:15 and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings which are able to instruct you for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.
3:16 All scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,
3:17 that the person of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
Titus 1:15 To the pure all things are pure, but to the corrupt and disbelieving nothing is pure; their very minds and consciences are corrupted.
Titus 1:16 They profess to know God, but they deny Him by their deeds; they are detestable, disobedient, unfit for any good work.
Revelation 22:11 Let the evildoer still do evil, and the filthy still be filthy, and the righteous still do right, and the holy still be holy.
22:12 "Hey, I am coming soon, bringing my recompense, to requite every one for what he has done.
22:13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end."
22:14 Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates.
22:15 Outside are the dogs and sorcerers and fornicators and murderers and idolaters, and every one who loves and practices falsehood.
As I see it, polarization by faster and more extensive means of newsprint, radio, TV, and internet media will happen among both the good-guy growing-and-yet-minority genuine Christians who will improve in morality-embracing attitudes and actions....and simultaneously the bad-guy growing-in-numbers-and-yet-still-majority fake "christians" and law-despising/law-breaking non-Christians will get worse, more activist, more bold, and more severe (consider the pro-abortion-choice and pro-homogay rulings of Barack Hussein Obama, Ginsburg and Kagan and Sotomayor and Stevens on the High Court overriding the ineffective objections of Scalia and his ilk, and the significant slight-minority of pro-Obama democrats in both the U.S. Senate and House, and much more).
Authentic Christians - politically - have been and still are in the "wrong" place and the "wrong" time doing the "wrong" things to acquire needed governmental authority and power...while Satan's demonic majority have been and still are - politically - in the "right" place at the "right" time doing the "right" thing to maintain superior government authority.
Such will inevitably (and sooner than some think) result in even total world population entering into the 42-month "Great Tribulation" described in chapters 13 through 19 of the New-Testament book of Revelation.
And "God" "the" Creator allows it (and the quotation marks associated with the names for Deity in this sentence are explained below).
Jesus Christ (which is THE name I will frequently and hereafter refer to Divinity with) has allowed it ever since the tiny two-person government of Eve and Adam pathetically and tragically decided to alienate themselves from Jesus Christ (who, admittedly, had not yet been human-born and so obviously was understandably not yet in human vocabulary).
Thereafter, "God" was vaguely identified as "Creator" (and soon after as "YHWH" or "Yahweh" or "The LORD") in terms of the environmental entities He brought into being.
Hebrews or Jacobian-Israelite Jews (not simply of "Judah" as contrasted with "Israel" of the then-into-the-future Divided Kingdom) mouthed the mantra: "Hear O Israel, THE LORD our God is One" -- without really understanding or separating the Triune Godhead into distinct personalities of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
That is not to say that "the Spirit of the Lord" or "the Spirit of God" phrases were not sporadically here and there throughout the pre-virgin-Mary Old Testament, nor that the Son (of God, as an appearing-in-human-form theophany) was not mentioned:
Genesis 32:24 And Jacob was left alone; and a Man wrestled with him until the breaking of the day.
32:25 When the Man saw that He did not prevail against Jacob, He touched the hollow of his thigh; and Jacob's thigh was put out of joint as he wrestled with Him.
32:26 Then He said: "Let me go, for the day is breaking." But Jacob replied: "I will not let you go, unless you bless me."
32:27 And He said to him: "What is your name?" And Jacob replied: "Jacob."
32:28 Then He said: "Your name shall no more be called Jacob, but Israel, for you have striven with God and with men, and have prevailed."
32:29 Then Jacob asked Him: "Tell me, I pray, your name." But He replied: "Why is it that you ask my name?" And there He blessed [Jacob].
32:30 So Jacob called the name of the place Peniel, saying: "For I have seen God face to face, and yet my life is preserved."
32:31 The sun rose upon him as he passed Penuel, limping because of his thigh.
Joshua 5:13 When Joshua was by Jericho, he lifted up his eyes and looked, and hey, a Man stood before him with His drawn sword in His hand; and Joshua went to Him and said to Him: "Are you for us, or for our adversaries?"
Joshua 5:14 And He replied: "No; but as Commander of the army of the LORD I have now come." And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and worshiped, and said to Him: "What does my lord bid His servant?"
Joshua 5:15 And the Commander of the LORD's army said to Joshua: "Put off your shoes from your feet; for the place where you stand is holy." And Joshua did so.
Psalm 110:1 A Psalm of David. The LORD says to my Lord: "Sit at my right hand, till I make your enemies your footstool."
Proverbs 30:4 Who has ascended to heaven and come down? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has wrapped up the waters in a garment? Who has established all the ends of the Earth? What is His name, and what is His Son's name? Surely you know!
Daniel 3:25 [Nebuchadnezzar] answered: "But I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they are not hurt; and the appearance of the fourth is like a son of the gods."
Matthew 22:44 'The Lord said to my Lord: Sit at my right hand, till I put your enemies under your feet'?
Matthew 22:45 If David thus calls Him Lord, how is He his Son?"
Matthew 22:46 And no one was able to answer Him a word, nor from that day did any one dare to ask Him any more questions.
Mark 12:35 And as Jesus taught in the temple, He said: "How can the scribes say that the Christ is the son of David?
Mark 12:36 David himself, inspired by the Holy Spirit, declared: 'The Lord said to my Lord: Sit at my right hand, till I put your enemies under your feet.'
Mark 12:37 David himself calls Him Lord; so how is He his Son?" And the great throng heard him gladly.
Luke 20:41 But he said to them: "How can they say that the Christ is David's son?
20:42 For David himself says in the Book of Psalms: 'The Lord said to my Lord: Sit at my right hand,
20:43 till I make thy enemies a stool for thy feet.'
20:44 David thus calls Him Lord; so how is He his son?"
Acts 2:34 For David did not ascend into the heavens; but he himself says: 'The Lord said to my Lord: Sit at my right hand,
2:35 until I make thy enemies a stool for your feet.'
2:36 Let all the house of Israel therefore know assuredly that God has made Him both Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom you crucified."
2:37 Now when they heard this they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the other apostles: "Brethren, what shall we do?"
2:38 And Peter said to them: "Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
2:39 For the promise is to you and to your children and to all that are far off, every one whom the Lord our God calls to him."
2:40 And he testified with many other words admonishing them, saying: "Save yourselves from this crooked generation."
2:41 So those who received his word were baptized, and there were added that day about three thousand [non-aborted grown-fetus] souls.
2:42 And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.
2:43 And fear came upon every soul; and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles.
However, this familial distinction (but not separation) of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit is merged and unified into One in accord with the Hebrew motto and slogan: "Hear O Israel, the Lord, our Lord, is One" according to the following verses:
Isaiah 9:6 For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder, and His name will be called "Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, EVERLASTING FATHER, Prince of Peace."
John 8:23 [Jesus] said to them: "You are from below, I am from above; you are of this world, I am not of this world.
John 8:58 Jesus said to them: "Truthfully, I say to you: before Abraham was, I AM." [the Trinitarian YHWH name given to Moses at The Burning Bush which was not consumed]
John 10:30 I and the Father are One."
Hebrews 2:11 [RSV] For He who sanctifies and those who are sanctified have all one origin. That is why He is not ashamed to call them brethren...
Hebrews 2:11 [KJV] For both He who sanctifies and they who are sanctified are all of One, for which cause He is not ashamed to call them brothers....
First John 5:7 [KJV-type translations] For there are three who bear witness in Heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are One.
There has never been a government on planet Earth which has publicly declared, whether in print or audibly, that "God" or "the Lord" or "the Creator," was identified with the exact words: "Jesus Christ."
The ancient Hebrew Jews did not have that, even though they started out assembled as and within a divided-and-complaining-among-themselves theocratic government with Moses being the president or prime minister or whatever.
The Romans during the time of Jesus on Earth had "Caesar" as near-equivalent to Creator along with imaginary Greek and Roman gods [e.g. Thor, Zeus, Apollo, and so on of dubious or presumed formerly-human origin] regulating various aspects of natural phenomena.
Even in early America, the founding fathers who signed the Declaration of Independence and formulated The Bill of Rights and Constitution did NOT specify "Jesus Christ" as their name for "Creator" or "God."
Perhaps some non-Jew "jews" [read Romans 2:28-29 plus Revelation 2:9 and 3:9] among them at that time would have objected, which harassive-and-repressive-against-Christianity objectors have, throughout history, by and because of their disobedient disbelief, brought holocaust after holocaust upon them and then-affected collaterally-damaged people in addition.
That is not to presume that aforementioned founding fathers of early America did not have Jesus Christ and His Sacred-66-books Judeo-Christian (i.e. Old-and-New-Testaments) Holy Bible in mind [rather than the already-also-existing-500-years-after-the-birth-of-Christ Qur'an/Koran or other governments-related documents] when they merely mentioned "God" and "the Creator" and "religion" (as in the Non-Establishment-against-Religion/Non-Prohibition-for-Religion Clauses of the First Amendment of their Constitution, intending to disallow government-forced sectarian denominalizationisms.
But - yet - they did NOT specify who "God" or "the Creator" was on paper, clearly and obviously omitting the name: "Jesus Christ" and thus insuring eventual demise of the United States by those increasingly-apostate church-services-and-Bible-avoiding city and suburban residents to infest America along with imported cultic foreigners and immigrants who certainly did not regard Jesus Christ as "God" nor "Lord" but instead attributed the title of Divinity to "the Great Spirit" or Buddha or Allah or whoever/whatever.
As a side note, for the past several years, within the Constitution Party Preamble, the exact words: "Jesus Christ" have been (and hopefully yet are) stated, and we can legitimately consider that minority political party a small though not "legally" dominant part of United States government. My feeling is that "a little leaven leavens the whole lump" and only God knows the immediate and far-reaching favorable ramifications and extensive consequences of them courageously and faithfully honoring the Jesus Christ (by mentioning his precise name) who is King of kings and Lord of lords.
Some of the remarkable effects which they (and I myself by voting for their top candidates in 1992, 1996, and 2008) had, because of that simple and brave mention of Jesus Christ in their quasi-governmental political charter, was to prepare the entire nation of both Democrats and Republicans, and the High Court [during the Clinton years] for morally-superior George W. Bush to slightly edge out Al Gore in the 2000 Election, AND be re-elected instead of John Kerry in the 2004 Election, PLUS express righteous indignation and disdain against "women-for-equality" chauvinists and homogays in the GOP causing understandable-loser and inferior-gender Sarah Palin to become defeated wimpish-to-feminists John McCain's VP running mate in 2008....
....while also being (although non-admittedly by most) influential in causing males Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan to come close to a 50% tie against arrogantly-self-confident professional-sounding-rhetoricist Barack Obama [born in Mombasa Kenya and not anywhere in Hawaii] and such tyrannous cohorts as constipated-against-sensible-moral-progress Harry Reid, pro-choice-for-abortion, pseudo-"catholic," feminist-demon Nancy Pelosi, and many other rulers-and-ruled Obamanites of nefarious notoriety, in the 2012 Election.
So, IS it now possible, or allowable, or advisable, for any politician running for any office at any level of city or county or state or federal government to specifically state publicly (in print and/or in writing) that "God" to them is ONLY and ALWAYS identified with the words: "Jesus Christ?"
WILL they be accused of then being "discriminatory" FOR Jesus Christ while at the same time being "discriminatory" AGAINST all other names for Divinity, and will such then be deemed "unlawful" or "illegal" and something eventually being brought to the U.S. Supreme Court?
Certainly such naysayers and critics as the ACLU [attorneys for criminal liberties union], AUSCS [antagonists united for separation of church and synagogue and mosque and state], Right Wing Watch/people-against-the-american-way [PAW], SPLC [southern poverty lunacy center], FFRF [freedom from religion foundation], american atheists, HRC [homo rites cohorts], and more would be adamantly eager to so accuse and initiate lawsuits against those who want to pray ONLY in the name of Jesus Christ exclusively, and not in the name of allah nor buddha nor Mohammed nor Confucius or Obama or whoever else.
And what would a needed-slight-or-more majority on the High Court decide? WOULD the Jesus-name-only politician be legally condemned and outlawed?
It depends on who and what individuals comprised the High Court, and what their feeling and decision about that was.
And also what the decision of the Chief Executive in the White House, and a majority of both houses of Congress, decided.
Lawsuits would be expensive, and the outcome dicey, but the satanically livid would not stop, rest, nor cease until they had pursued their virulent objections to the death.
At times, it has resulted and yet can escalate into mortal combat:
Leviticus 24:10 Now an Israelite woman's son, whose father was an Egyptian, went out among the people of Israel; and the Israelite woman's son and a man of Israel quarreled in the camp,
24:11 and the Israelite woman's son blasphemed the Name, and cursed. And they brought him to Moses. His mother's name was Shelomith, the daughter of Dibri, of the tribe of Dan.
24:12 And they put him in custody, till the will of the LORD should be declared to them.
24:13 And the LORD said to Moses:
24:14 "Bring out of the camp him who cursed; and let all who heard him lay their hands upon his head, and let all the congregation stone him.
24:15 And say to the people of Israel: 'Whoever curses his God shall bear his sin.
24:16 He who blasphemes the name of the LORD shall be put to death; all the congregation shall stone him; the traveler as well as the native, when he blasphemes the Name, shall be put to death.'"
24:23 So Moses spoke to the people of Israel; and they brought him who had cursed out of the camp, and stoned him with stones. Thus the people of Israel did as the LORD commanded Moses.
Deuteronomy 13:6 "If your brother, the son of your mother, or your son, or your daughter, or the wife of your bosom, or your friend who is as your own soul, entices you secretly, saying, 'Let us go and serve other gods,' which neither you nor your fathers have known,
13:7 some of the gods of the peoples that are round about you, whether near you or far off from you, from the one end of Earth to the other,
13:8 you shall not yield to him or listen to him, nor shall your eye pity him, nor shall you spare him, nor shall you conceal him;
13:9 but you shall execute him; your hand shall be first against him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people.
13:10 You shall stone him to death with stones, because he sought to draw you away from the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
13:11 And all Israel shall hear, and fear, and never again do any such wickedness as this among you.
And some presume that merely islamic sharia is strict in demanding religious respect for what is thought sacred! But if push comes to shove, it is Judeo-Christian religion which both should and must exceed allegiance to muslim or any other replacement religion. "Heads must roll" for the right cause and reason, if need be.
It behooves the actual and real Christian politician and government official to be true to his (not "her") supernatural beliefs which supercede allegiance to mere human government, and "let the chips fall where they will" in terms of acerbic reactions emanating from deviant bastards and bitches who clearly are anti-patriotic satanic adversaries and subversives exhibiting destructive defiance against obedient adherence to Divine mandates of loyalty to Jesus Christ....all of which noble defense is to be done kindly but firmly without cowardly obfuscation:
First Peter 3:15 ...but in your hearts reverence Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to make a defense to any one who calls you to account for the hope that is in you, yet do it with gentleness and reverence...
Mark 8:38 For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the Son of Man also be ashamed, when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels."
Luke 9:26 For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words, of him will the Son of Man be ashamed when He comes in His glory and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.
Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel: it is the power of God for salvation to every one who has faith, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
Second Timothy 1:12 ...and therefore I suffer as I do. But I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed, and I am sure that He is able to guard until that Day what has been entrusted to me.
Hebrews 11:16 But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, because He he has prepared for them a City.
Certainly such non-restricted expression of asserting equivalence of the word "God" or "Creator" with the name "Jesus Christ" is well within acceptable parameters of First-Amendment-guaranteed free speech and freedom of religion, obviously impossible to realistically and rationally misconsider an insane or dangerous concoction of detrimental imagination or aberration misconstrued as harmful public nuisance somehow threatening the well-being and safety of surrounding disbelievers:
First John 2:22 Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is an antichrist, he who denies the Father and the Son.
First John 5:4 For whoever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that overcomes the world: our faith.
First John 5:5 Who are they who overcome the world but they who believe that Jesus is the Son of God?
It is expected that at the same time of worsening apostasy and heresy there will be revival among the righteous in America becoming more and more educated and acceptant regarding the Biblical doctrines and imperatives of properly-translated Scripture, resulting in more and more converts being positively influenced and converted to Christianity, and interdependent and interpersonal influences of Christians will even have some effect in temporarily suppressing wickedness of the demonically accursed....while the satanic will double down, "dig in their heels," and react even more negatively and violently with increased fervor and vigor, significantly neutralizing positive effects of the righteous in society.
Eventually, according to the New-Testament book of Revelation, there someday WILL come a global government with a actually-returned-to-Earth non-UFO-alien-being Jesus Christ in His glorified body, establishing and strictly maintaining millennial mandatory righteousness of authentically-Christian worldwide-government rule on planet Earth with that proverbial "rod of iron" of His impeccable holy dictates with literal-Torah-applied-punishment-described enforcement thereof.
