Free gas and mortgage payments -- how to cash in on a $600 mil. campaign
By Michael Bresciani
November 6, 2008

The fat lady has sung and the votes have been tallied. Barack Obama is the 44th president of the United States. America has married the dem's most secular liberal and the honeymoon is now underway. Will it work?

On election night Fox News showed a clip of a young African American woman saying that she knew that if she needed a tank of gas or help with her mortgage payments Obama would help her. It was pitiful to watch but not altogether that far removed from the fantasy notions running through the heads of many naïve Obama supporters.

At the risk of being called a party pooper I won't mention that for $600 mil you could feed about 10 million hungry children for several years in some third world country, even Kenya. Now the little poll that's popping up on certain websites isn't about who is most likely to cheat, Obama or McCain, it is rather the question of whether we think Obama bought your vote. Even if you were an Obama supporter it would be hard to say no.

Needless to say not everyone is blithe with the election result. But in fact the election has no real result yet; that will show up over the next few years. The vote count is in the results will follow.

It is as if Obamerites have been solemnized and have entered into the initial consummation or honeymoon stage with all the accolades, promises, smiles and dreamy sighing. Now we can get on to the business of domestic routines and the next four to eight years of proving. This is where we see if the bad associations and the inexperience will remain suppressed and the lavish promises of better days will pan out. It is also a time to see if the old adage about marriage is true namely that "love is blind; but marriage is an eye opener."

In years of article writing I have never received more inquiries than now as to whether I think Obama is the antichrist. I'm sorry they didn't come in sooner even though I don't think he is. It's a little late to ask now. What I do believe is that as far as biblical prophecy is concerned that there has never been a more likely candidate on the scene in recent times for the 'false prophet' then Barack Obama. Who is the false prophet?

In the thirteenth chapter of Revelation a man is described who aids and supports the antichrist. He is from a different nation from the dreaded antichrist (EU) but they are not only in bed together but the false prophet is like the enforcer of his economic policies and his rule in general. No they are not robed and garbed religious leaders but political figures who are heralded as secular messiahs.

Secularists think they are too intelligent to be caught up in such fanfare but it isn't about intelligence, it is about human nature. To wit; only fifteen years after Hitler's death the nation of Germany stood applauding a young John F. Kennedy for four straight hours after his 'Ich Bin Ein Berliner' speech in June of 1963. Some of the people in that crowd had been crying Heil Hitler only a few short years earlier.

Messiahs have been doing well in the last century and while there are too many to mention here it makes the point. The bible only speaks of one final 'antichrist' and his compatriot the 'false prophet' but history's last one hundred years of dictators, megalomaniacs, despots and messiahs makes the bible seem conservative by comparison. Humanity it seems is creating its own self fulfilling prophecies even while denying the more reasonable forecast of the scriptures.

The world still wants a political military messiah not a meek and lowly messiah who dies for the sins of the world. The bible says...they'll get just what they want! The most educated generation in world history will accept the world's last messiah without as much as a whisper of doubt. Jesus said it this way, "I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive." John 5:43
