In Daniel chapter five, an unknown
came to the throne of Babylon. The
Bible says that he was the son of
Nebuchadnezzar, but more likely
his grandson. He evidently had no
experience at ruling anything, but
was good at organizing community
parties. He was given Babylon
because of his loyalty to his ruling
dynasty. He never asked for advice
before making a decision; pride was
his guide. He thought he could do no
wrong and that the entire kingdom
was there for his pleasure.
He tempted God by using the
temple treasury to impress his
lustful guests. While his kingdom
languished, he drank wine and dined
in the palace with those that would
agree to anything to gain his favor.
He mocked God by praising the idols
of his ancestors. According to recent
finds, his actual father was Nabonidus. Like father, like son—so his favorite god would be the same god his father worshipped,who is shown on a relief praying to the moon god (www.livius.org). Belshazzar had witnessed Nebuchadnezzar’s failures and successes and had learned nothing from them, or he had simply ignored them. He never admitted fault, and his answer to inexperience and inability to rule was to ignore the problem or bribe someone
else to take care of it. He didn’t realize his destiny until he saw the handwriting on the wall and his dream of stardom suddenly became a nightmare.
Because of his intentional and continual disregard for the God of Heaven, God sent him a message in Daniel 5:5–6, “In the same hour came forth fingers of a man’s hand, and wrote over against the candlestick upon the plaister of the wall of the
king’s palace: and the king saw the part of the hand that wrote. Then the king’s countenance was changed, and his thoughts troubled him, so that the joints of his loins were loosed, and his knees smote one against another.” When he received the message from God, none of his buddies could help him. Only
Daniel, God’s man, could be honest enough to tell him the truth. This was one time he could not buy his way out of the problem.
Daniel refused his gift and delivered God’s message: “MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN”—“God hath numbered your kingdom, and finished it. You are weighed in the balances, and are found wanting.
Your kingdom is divided, and given tothe Medes and Persians.” That night,the king of the Chaldeans was killed and Darius the Median took over the kingdom.
There is nothing new under the sun, and suddenly this little messiah was a thing of the past.
Enter Barack Hussein Obama. We have today another ruler of the same shades as Belshazzer. He was thrust
onto the political scene out of obscurity with little or no notion of how to run a government. His only experience was organizing community meetings and
parties for his political cronies. His cronies always seemed to be Socialists such as William Ayers, a member of the “Weather Underground,” who was
a fugitive for ten years for bombing the Pentagon, the U.S. Capitol, and other government buildings. The FBI labeled his organization as a “domestic terrorist group.” Even Hillary Clinton during the campaign said that his association with Ayers should raise eyebrows. Because he was one of theirs, the Chicago union thugs helped him get into the White House. He represents the ruling dynasty of these Chicago minions and is paying back their support with
political appointments in the form of czars that don’t answer to Congress.
He is a narcissist, and it has never occurred to him that he could possibly be wrong. He wields the presidential wand with reckless abandonment. Like Belshazzar, his linage is dubious at best. He either can’t or won’t issue his birth certificate that
proves he was born in the United States. He is only eligible to be president if he was born here. To hide his real identity, the day after his inauguration, he issued a presidential directive that all of his personal records were to be sealed.
He is ruling over a nation that is foreign to him, and he treats the citizens like they are the foreigners. Our country—not his country—is in serious trouble. While this nation is languishing in financial and spiritual turmoil, he fiddles while Rome burns. He demands that we sacrifice our future and happiness to meet his goals of messiahship . . . just because he says so. While his subjects are in dire straits, doing without jobs, food, and medicine, he is spending the national treasure on wining and dining other low–class aristocrats to try and improve his stature among world leaders. During 2009 alone, he wasted over $10 million on his lavish White House parties,entertaining the likes of Stevie Wonder and Paul McCartney. Somehow I don’t believe our founding fathers would approve of such a poor use of our tax money while at the same time lowering our international prestige.
Robin T. Lakoff, Ph.D., a linguistics professor and psychotherapist at Berkeley, known as “Robin of Berkeley,” has this to say about Obama: “Obama will not change. He will not learn from his mistakes. He will not grow and mature from on–the–job experience. In fact, over time, Obama will likely become a more ferocious version of who he is today. Why? Because this is a damaged person. Obama’s fate was sealed years ago growing up in his strange and poisonous family. Later on, his empty vessel was filled with the hateful bile of men like Rev. Wright and Bill Ayers. Obama will not evolve; he will not rise to the occasion; and he will not become the man he was meant to be. This is for one reason and one reason alone: He is not capable.”
However, the straw that broke the camel’s back was not the feasting and drinking in Babylon, but the blasphemous use of God’s treasures and the worship of strange gods. Nabonidus, Belshazzar’s father, worshipped several gods, one of which was Sin, the moon god. It was symbolized by a crescent moon.
Most certainly, the god of Belshazzar’s father would have been his god. And like Belshazzar, Barack Hussein Obama has a thing for those who worship the moon god. That would be those like unto his father, a known Muslim. Obama even said in his book, The Audacity of Hope, that if the winds shifted against the Muslims, he would side with the Muslims. Since most Muslim organizations such as Hamas have been declared terrorists and enemies of the United States, he is guilty of treason—aiding and abetting the enemy. In 2009 alone, his administration pledged
$900 million to the West Bank and Gaza, much of which surely ended up in the hands of Hamas.
In September 2009, Obama pledged $400,000 to Qaddafi’s Libyan charity run by the Qaddafi family—$200,000 would be given to his son’s charity and $200,000 would be given to his daughter’s charity. Libya is a sworn enemy of the United States.
Obama has consistently stated that he is not a Muslim, but a Christian. After all, he attended Rev. Wright’s church for over 20 years. That alone should prove that he is a Christian, right! However, in Muslim countries he is consistently referred to as a Muslim and at times has admitted the same. According to one source (www.vicmord.com), Victor Mordecai reported: “My wife Rachel, who monitors Arab language broadcasts for Israel Radio, picked up a revealing statement on the ‘Round Table Show’ on Egypt’s Nile TV. Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Abul Gheit said he had a one–on–one meeting with Obama, who told him that he was a Muslim, the son of a Muslim father and stepson of a Muslim stepfather, that his half–brothers in Kenya were Muslim, and that he was sympathetic to the Muslim agenda. He asked the Arabs to show patience. Obama promised that once he overcame some domestic American issues (like health care reform), he would show the Muslim world how he would deal with Israel.”
Qaddafi stated in a recent speech more than 10 times that Obama is a Muslim brother. The Muslim world believes that he is a Muslim, and I am inclined to believe them. While he refuses to observe “National Prayer Day,” he honors his Muslim friends by inviting them into the White House to celebrate Ramadan with a great feast with wine served in goblets paid for by American taxpayers, predominately Christians. This sacrilege included his own princes and concubines. The guest list also included a large number of Muslim leaders from around the world (http://latimesblogs.latimes.com).
While he refused to host a group of Christian pastors and leaders, he desecrated the house that Christians built. With these words he added insult to injury to the American Christian community: “Indeed, the contribution of Muslims to the United States are too long to catalog because Muslims are so interwoven into the fabric of our communities and our country. . . . So on this occasion, we celebrate the Holy Month of Ramadan, and we also celebrate how much Muslims have enriched America and its culture—in ways both large and small. And with us here tonight, we see just a small sample of those contributions.” While Obama continuously courts the sodomites, perhaps the most damaging thing that Obama is doing is his continuous bad treatment of Israel. He sides with the enemies of Israel while revoking our aid to our only friend and democracy in the Middle East. His recent treatment of Mr. Netanyahu is deplorable and will not go unnoticed by God. Obama is not presidential material and has shown his true colors in meetings with both Muslim and Israeli leaders as he boastfully shows contempt for God’s people and land.
Barack Hussein Obama has shown all of the shades of
Belshazzar. He has feasted and drank wine while the enemies approach the walls. He has replaced the God of Heaven with his loyalty pledged to others. Surely, the hand of God will soon reveal to Mr. Obama his future. God has been writing on the wall for some time now . . . and Obama has been found wanting.
That message might read as follows: “Barack Hussein Obama, you have been weighed in the balances and been found wanting. Your total disregard of Me and your complete disdain for My people have sealed your fate. Henceforth, your dreams of anarchy are finished.”
Who will he turn to? Is there a Daniel among us?
