“For there is nothing hidden that will not be revealed” Mark 4:22
It’s often been said, that “many a truth is spoken in jest”. Which leads me to believe that the words by President Obama on April 30, 2012 at the White House Correspondents dinner regarding, a second term, may have been just that – truth spoken in jest.
With an easy smile and an arrogance that he wears like a suit, the President quipped,
“Now, if I do win a second term as President, let me just say something to all my
conspiracy-oriented friends on the right who think I’m planning to unleash
some secret agenda: You’re absolutely right. So allow me
to close with a quick preview of the secret agenda you can expect in a
second Obama administration. In my first term, we ended the war in Iraq; in my
second term, I will win the war on Christmas. In my first
term, we repealed the policy known as “don’t ask, don’t tell”- in my second
term, we will replace it with a policy known as, it’s raining
men. In my first term, we passed health care reform; in my second
term, I guess I’ll pass it again.”
As expected, these remarks were met with a great deal of laughter. A war on Christmas, “hilarious” …. Christmas 2012 headlines – ”Obama and Santa duke it out over red suit” … A seriously over-weight Santa retired from service ….. “too fat for the job” says, the health conscious Obama administration …. ROFL
More likely is that the President knowingly or unknowingly set the agenda for his second term. Not a war on Christmas, or Santa, but, a war on Christ himself! This is the spirit of Anti-Christ.
On Thursday morning as I was getting out of bed, the words Amos 36:8 were impressed on my mind. As I stumbled to the bathroom, eyes still blurry with sleep, I remember thinking, Amos is a short book, it must be Amos 3:6-8. And, so it was.
When a trumpet sounds in a city,
do not the people tremble?
When disaster comes to a city,
has not the Lord caused it?
Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing
without revealing his plan
to his servants the prophets.
The lion has roared—
who will not fear?
The Sovereign Lord has spoken—
who can but prophesy?
Yes, the Lord will bring to light that which is hidden. And, those paying attention will see and understand.
