White House Middle East Policy--Spirit of antichrist arises
There was so much wrong-mindedness in the speech on Middle East policy delivered by the man who occupies the Oval Office that it is difficult to know where to begin. I urge every American to read it. The president of the United States for the fist time in history has embarked on a policy that will help reestablish an Islamic Caliphate in the name of self determination; will divide and reduce Israel's sovereign land to the advantage of proven terrorists; and redirects American policy in the Middle East toward violence and upheaval--all in the name of peace and human rights. His words are ear tickling, yet dangerous as in Jeremiah 6:14 saying, "Peace, peace; when there is no peace."
He said that "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." This only means that the United States is going to support revolution by terrorists and radicals through the Muslim Brotherhood to democratically establish Sharia law--under which the human rights of no man, woman or child are guaranteed. He is committing billions of dollars of your money to do it. The immoral use of this money is scandalous, its ethics are profoundly devoid during a time when most Americans face financial hardships.
He said, "In Tahrir Square, we heard Egyptians from all walks of life chant, "Muslims, Christians, we are one." America will work to see that this spirit prevails." This spirit is one of the antichrist. Islam and Christianity are the polar opposites of one another. 2 John 7 says, "For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist." We are not one. I am offended that a president of the United States who claims to be a follower of Christ would remotely imply that Islam and Christianity are of the same spirit. And of the Jews, who are not mentioned as one, he has a special plan for Israel, who all the Islamist "peace partners" say should be destroyed.
He said that Israel must revert back to its 1967 borders, stop its occupation of the West Bank and pull its security forces out of Palestinian areas. In return, the Palestinians must denounce terror and recognize Israel's right to exist. This, against a backdrop where Fatah--the moderate terrorist group America has paid billions to over the years--and Hamas, a known terrorist group that as late as last week issued a prayer call for the demise of Israel--have united to form a Palestinian government. Where the Palestinians have self rule in Gaza, they have constantly attacked Israel. This American president is traveling a dangerous path toward empowering Islam at the expense of humankind. He represents the spirit of antichrist and Christians need to have understanding that they are not deceived.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
