Prophecy Clock Ticks Forward--US throws in with enemies of God
The US president's 2009 speech in Cairo signaled a significant departure from traditional American diplomacy and subsequent White House actions have moved the prophecy clock forward. The speech was held at the Muslim Brotherhood controlled Al Azhar University and members of the banned Muslim Brotherhood were especially invited in an "in your face" diplomatic slap on US ally Hosni Mubarak. Since then, there was what appeared to be a landmark shift in foreign policy as the United States participated in the overthrow of the Egyptian government in favor of the Muslim Brotherhood--the fomenter of modern terrorist groups such as al Qaeda, Hamas, Jamma Islamiya and is allies with Hezbollah.
This signaled change now has become US policy. The president declared in his May 19 Middle East policy speech "it will be the policy of the United States to promote reform across the region, and to support transitions to democracy...In the months ahead, America must use all our influence to encourage reform in the region." Reform means revolution. Reform means that the US is going to actively support the overthrow of governments throughout the Middle East with the imperialist goal of establishing democracy. Islam will eagerly embrace democracy because it means that Sharia Law and its institutional oppression of human rights will be legitimized by the vote of Muslims--see Afghanistan, Iraq, Gaza, interim Egypt.
Billions of American taxpayer dollars and most likely the blood of our sons and daughters will be spent instigating socialist-style revolution and helping establish Islamic rule throughout the Middle East. There is no where in the US Constitution that allows a president authority to place the full forbearance of American policy behind overthrowing governments and establishing democracy around the world. This stated policy is immoral and unethical because the US will be supporting enemies of God and further draining our national wealth and treasure at a time of deep economic hardship. This alone should be an impeachable offense if only there were statesmen to force the issue by doing what is right.
Notwithstanding, the prophecy clock ticks forward with this inane policy. Many have wondered where America stands in the end times. Every single nation that is mentioned in scriptures as coming against Israel in the end is currently an Islamic nation or one with deep Islamic ties. America has traditionally stood in the breech preventing such boldness from occurring. It is now, at least under the misguided and illegal actions of this president, opening the physical door to the antichrist and his plan. While we know these events will happen as prophecy unfolds, it is better for us to overcome evil with good rather than experience the wrath of God as in Zechariah 12:9, "I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem."
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
