An Important Election Indeed: Heaven and Hell in the Balance

Okay, I cannot take it any more. I have went off the deep end and have lost sanity. Or perhaps I am more sane than most. I consider myself a modestly intelligent man. What I am about to say will surely cause many of you to label me a "wacko." I don't care, I cannot take it any longer. Days after I warned that I may now be the crazy man standing on the corner, I am convinced that I am not crazy, rather, the rest of the world is. I believe that the United States is on the brink of electing the Anti-Christ in Barack Obama. I do not say this without reason, allow me to try and persuade you to see my side.

Let us look to the Bible. Let us look at Revelation 13 to be exact since it speaks in great detail of the coming of the Anti-Christ.

13:1 Reads - "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." - Rising up out of the sea to me means that the Anti-Christ will be from an island nation - or perhaps Hawaii. The seven heads are the G-7 financial powers and one of the heads will be seriously injured and revived and the whole world will be amazed. That one head will be the United States economy. The 10 horns could be seen as countries where the Anti-Christ will derive power from, and which will become 10 kingdoms for an hour so says the Bible.

13:2 Reads - "And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority." - leopards are two colors, perhaps predicting he is biracial. The dragon that helped him win his seat (perhaps seat in Congress) and has great authority could be Obama's financial backer and head of the world-wide Unification Church Sun Myung Moon whose original name was Mun Yong Myong. Yong means "dragon" in Korean, but Moon changed his name to keep Christians from equating him with the dragon in Revelation, which is exactly what I am doing. Moon has suggested he is the second Christ and is a very dangerous man and a very big financial backer of Obama.

13:3 Reads - "And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast." I am not sure what is meant by this. The seven heads are the G-7 global financial powers and the head that is CURRENTLY INJURED is the American economy which Obama will revive and win great favor around the world. I would bet my farm the economy turns around under Obama as a result of this prophecy, and I am a financial advisor. I am not a Bible scholar, just a regular Joe doing my best to make sense of this.

13:4 Reads - "And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?" Surely we can say that people's obsession with Obama is a bit weird to say the least. Kids are marching to him and chanting Alpha and Omega like they would a God. Then you have other kids singing to him as if he were a God. Then you have other people fainting when Obama talks. Then you have people worshipping Obama financial supporter Reverend Moon (the dragon) as the second coming of Christ. And you have 200,000 people in GERMANY turning out to see Obama at an address in Berlin. Last time I checked, Obama wasn't running for anything there. I also think there is more to this. Many supposedly "Christian" churches in the US and abroad have become too accepting. I do not think God is pleased. I think we have allowed political correctness and tolerance to run amok.

13:5 Reads - "And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months." How long is a presidential cycle? By the time the President gets settled into office and gets his feet on the ground it surely cannot be much more than 42 months. In addition everyone can agree Obama is a great orator. He has a mouth for speaking great things, but he mocks the Bible. He also seems a bit full of himself as was displayed in John McCain's commercial "The One."

13:16 Reads - "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." Surely this can never happen right? Maybe it can and already is. Barack Obama has sponsored a bill - Senate Bill 2911 for "interoperability with electronic medical records." This would expedite medical information about people, but its a short jump to the implementation of micro-chips in humans like animals that would allow humans to purchase and sell things based on their implanted microchips. Read the articles, a bit chilling.

13:18 Reads - "Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six." I may have been reading this passage wrong my entire life. I have always assumed the number of the Beast was 666. But the passage actually states that if you have understanding you should COUNT THE NUMBER. Well since 666 is already put out there, perhaps counting means adding. 6+6+6=18. So 18 is the number of the Beast? Barack Hussein Obama has 18 letters. It may be a stretch, but when viewed in light of the totality of the situation, it seems a bit chilling to me.

Further in Revelation you find that a woman classified as "The Great Prostitute" will ride the Beast (Obama?). The Great Prostitute is also mentioned as "The Great City" and "Babylon." Could this be the United States of America?

Revelation 18:3 Reads - "For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies." Surely no where in the world has made merchants richer than the United States.

18:11 Reads - "And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more." Again, this seems eerily like a description of the United States and the world's need for us as its great consumer. It also seems to suggest that something terrible is going to happen to us and if we in America are truly the "Great Prostitute" we will be riding on "The Beast."

Maybe I am way off in my thinking. Maybe I am reading way too much into all this. Or maybe many of us are missing the boat and not seeing what is right in front of our eyes. We have an inexperienced candidate who came from no where and on whom nothing sticks. It does not matter that this candidate can be linked to ACORN, Ayers, Wright, Raines, and Johnson. It does not matter that this candidate has the most liberal voting record in Congress. It does not matter that this candidate has a name that is one letter removed from two of our most hated Muslim enemies. Indeed it seems sometimes as if we are being handed an UNELECTABLE candidate to show us how blind we are to what is going on. And the scary thing, we are likely going to elect him.

I encourage you to do your own research, but don't discount it as a possibility. My daughter asked me why it would happen in our generation - WHY NOT? If we as Christians truly believe what we say we do, does this not seem a bit too eerie to look past without at least doing a bit of research and taking a bit of time to make sure we share with our loved ones? After all this may be the most important election in the history of mankind...Heaven and Hell may be watching.
