Obama’s State of the Union address confirms him to be another Rehoboam. If you read your Bible you know that Rehoboam was the foolish son of King Soloman. In 1 King 12:1 we read that when Soloman died, “Rehoboam went to Shechem: for all Israel were come to Shechem to make him king.” He got into office with overwhelming support, as did Obama.
However, he inherited a problem, as did Obama. Rehoboam’s predecessor, Soloman, who had begun his reign as the wisest man ever, had let power go to his head, and had abused his people. We read in 1 Kings 11:1-8:
1 But king Solomon loved many strange women, together with the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites;
2 Of the nations concerning which the LORD said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall not go in to them, neither shall they come in unto you: for surely they will turn away your heart after their gods: Solomon clave unto these in love.
3 And he had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines: and his wives turned away his heart.
4 For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with the LORD his God, as was the heart of David his father.
5 For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites.
6 And Solomon did evil in the sight of the LORD, and went not fully after the LORD, as did David his father.
7 Then did Solomon build an high place for Chemosh, the abomination of Moab, in the hill that is before Jerusalem, and for Molech, the abomination of the children of Ammon.
8 And likewise did he for all his strange wives, which burnt incense and sacrificed unto their gods.
9 And the LORD was angry with Solomon, because his heart was turned from the LORD God of Israel, which had appeared unto him twice,
10 And had commanded him concerning this thing, that he should not go after other gods: but he kept not that which the LORD commanded.
The building done for all the false gods of Soloman’s wives was done with labor provided by the people of Israel, and was paid for by taxes taken from their income. This had been a grievous burden to them, and they needed relief, as do the American people now. So,
… all the congregation of Israel came, and spake unto Rehoboam, saying,
Thy father made our yoke grievous: now therefore make thou the grievous service of thy father, and his heavy yoke which he put upon us, lighter, and we will serve thee. (1 Kings 12:3-4)
At this Rehoboam should have immediately answered, “Thank you so much for your confidence. I will do my best to serve you.” The wise path was so obvious that he should not even have needed to pray about it. Had he been reading his Bible he would have automatically made the right choice. But instead, he wanted three days to think about it. He was so full of himself (as is Obama) that he wanted time to consider how his decision would affect him, instead of how it would affect his people.
First he asked advice from the old wise men of long experience,
7 And they spake unto him, saying, If thou wilt be a servant unto this people this day, and wilt serve them, and answer them, and speak good words to them, then they will be thy servants for ever.
What? The King, The Messiah, The One, The God-Man be a servant? No way! Rehoboam would have nothing to do with being a servant. He would not serve, but be served.
8 But he forsook the counsel of the old men, which they had given him, and consulted with the young men that were grown up with him, and which stood before him:
9 And he said unto them, What counsel give ye that we may answer this people, who have spoken to me, saying, Make the yoke which thy father did put upon us lighter?
10 And the young men that were grown up with him spake unto him, saying, Thus shalt thou speak unto this people that spake unto thee, saying, Thy father made our yoke heavy, but make thou it lighter unto us; thus shalt thou say unto them, My little finger shall be thicker than my father’s loins.
11 And now whereas my father did lade you with a heavy yoke, I will add to your yoke: my father hath chastised you with whips, but I will chastise you with scorpions.
12 So Jeroboam and all the people came to Rehoboam the third day, as the king had appointed, saying, Come to me again the third day.
13 And the king answered the people roughly, and forsook the old men’s counsel that they gave him;
14 And spake to them after the counsel of the young men, saying, My father made your yoke heavy, and I will add to your yoke: my father also chastised you with whips, but I will chastise you with scorpions.
Instead of listening to the old, wise men, Rehoboam listened to the young foolish men, as does Obama. Rehoboam listened to the Rahm Emanuel type advisors, as does Obama. In case you don’t know who Rahm Emanuel is, he is Obama’s potty-mouthed, bully, chief of staff. “Get in their face!” Beat up the old people at town hall meetings. Tell people to send in the e-mail addresses of people that dare disagree with us. Rebuke the Supreme Court justices before the whole world in your State of the Union address. Say, “I won’t quit.”
He won’t quit what? Trying to cram socialism and communism down our throats even after a defeat like the one his party suffered in the recent Massachusetts Senate race? Just like Rehoboam, Obama doesn’t listen to the people.
15 Wherefore the king hearkened not unto the people; for the cause was from the LORD, that he might perform his saying, which the LORD spake by Ahijah the Shilonite unto Jeroboam the son of Nebat.
16 So when all Israel saw that the king hearkened not unto them, the people answered the king, saying, What portion have we in David? neither have we inheritance in the son of Jesse: to your tents, O Israel: now see to thine own house, David. So Israel departed unto their tents.
17 But as for the children of Israel which dwelt in the cities of Judah, Rehoboam reigned over them.
Rehoboam divided Israel, just like Obama has divided the USA. In all our history we have never had such a divisive leader. He is now no one’s president except for the radical, God-hating, pro-sodomite socialists and communists that helped him lie his way into office. The polls show that his support is dropping like a rock, but he still thinks he has a mandate from the people, to continue to push his wicked agenda.
Jonah Goldberg wrote an excellent critique of Obama’s speech for the New York Post. He ends the critique like this:
Obama insists that Americans need to muster the courage to agree with him, to sign on to his agenda. Just as at Omaha Beach and Bull Run, Americans need to show their mettle. “Again, we are tested. And again, we must answer history’s call.” That “call” is the call of Obama.
“I never suggested that change would be easy, or that I can do it alone.” So come on, you slackers, fall into line.
He decried the politicians who are in “permanent campaign” mode — the same week he brought into the White House his campaign manager.
Other politicians are vain, cowardly and insubstantial. They need the courage to change. Meanwhile, Obama is great the way he is.
That is the attitude that has gotten the president in so much trouble. And last night’s State of the Union speech showed us that change really isn’t easy, particularly for the president. (Obama’s answer for America: more of me)
Rehoboam was a big taxer, as is Obama. Obama recently experienced Boston Tea Party II, but obviously has not yet learned his lesson, as he still wants to push through his phony ObamaCare, which the America’s don’t want when it is so clear that he does not care. He wants to encourage our elderly parent’s to kill themselves, and he wants us to think he cares?! Also, after putting every family in America over $100,000.00 dollars in debt, he wants us to agree to a plan that will cost us a trillion dollars more! He really, really thinks we are stupid. He had better really be careful, or his Boston Tea Party III will be like the one experienced by Rehoboam.
18 Then king Rehoboam sent Adoram, who was over the tribute; and all Israel stoned him with stones, that he died. Therefore king Rehoboam made speed to get him up to his chariot, to flee to Jerusalem.
19 So Israel rebelled against the house of David unto this day.
Obama is also like Rehoboam in another important way: he is pro-sodomite. In 1 Kings 14:21-24 we read the following chilling words:
21 And Rehoboam the son of Solomon reigned in Judah. Rehoboam was forty and one years old when he began to reign, and he reigned seventeen years in Jerusalem, the city which the LORD did choose out of all the tribes of Israel, to put his name there. And his mother’s name was Naamah an Ammonitess.
22 And Judah did evil in the sight of the LORD, and they provoked him to jealousy with their sins which they had committed, above all that their fathers had done.
23 For they also built them high places, and images, and groves, on every high hill, and under every green tree.
24 And there were also sodomites in the land: and they did according to all the abominations of the nations which the LORD cast out before the children of Israel.
Like Rehoboam, Obama is at war against God and God’s moral code. In Obama’s State of the Union address, Obama said,
My Administration has a Civil Rights Division that is once again prosecuting civil rights violations and employment discrimination. We finally strengthened our laws to protect against crimes driven by hate. This year, I will work with Congress and our military to finally repeal the law that denies gay Americans the right to serve the country they love because of who they are.
This is pure wickedness and hypocrisy. Most readers who read this article probably do not realize that the so-called “Hate Crimes” laws Obama is bragging about passing, violate the free speech of anyone who says that sodomy is wrong. To declare sodomy to be wrong is a “hate crime” the Democrats say. I am, therefore, breaking Obama’s new anti-God law this very minute by quoting the following verses from the Bible:
Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. (Lev. 18:22)
If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. (Lev. 20:13)
Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: and likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient. (Romans 1:25-28)
Obama and his evil party have legalized a sin God describes as an “abomination” — a vile sin comprised of abnormal sex acts which cause men to get feces on their private parts and in their mouths, thus spreading incurable, fatal diseases. Not only that, but he has already chosen a sodomite (Kevin Jennings) who long headed an organization of pedophiles (sodomites who prey on young boys) to be his “Safe Schools Czar,” thus making public schools the most unsafe place a child could possibly be. You can learn more about this wickedness here: Mitt Romney — king of Sodomites. What they are trying to seduce your children into will make you want to puke. Promoting sodomy as though it doesn’t have exceedingly dangerous consequences is the real hate-crime.
Now, Obama wants to sodomize our military. He wants to make it possible for sodomites to openly commit their crimes against God without punishment. If allowed to succeed at this, he will demoralize and destroy our military — there will be scandal after scandal. All good men will leave the military, and we will be left defenseless. No country has ever survived tolerating sodomy. Sodomites are NOT born that way; they are seduced into being that way. Sodomy is a sin — just like rape, murder, robbery, and kidnapping are sins. It is hate — not love — to not warn people that such sins will destroy their lives, and send them to Hell.
Obama closed his State of the Union address by saying, “God Bless You. And God Bless the United States of America.” Too bad the god he was referring to was himself.
In closing, it needs to be pointed out that the problem George W. Bush left for Obama was caused by:
- Compromising with liberal, humanist, God-hating Democrats, trying to get them off him back, therefore betraying and alienating the good people that voted him into office. As he has since admitted, he violated his free market principles is agreeing to the Democrat’s incredibly stupid bailout plan. But he compromised with them on many other issues also, trying unsuccessfully to appease them.
- Having more compassion for the people of enemy nations than for his own troops. Had he used nuclear weapons immediately after 9/11, not one American soldier would have died, and the war against terror would have been won instantly, and Osama bin Laden would have been sent to the hot place where he belongs. But instead, Bush’s misplaced compassion has cost thousands of Ameican lives, and there is no end to the war in sight. And the USA is now faced with extreme and unnecessary dangers on every side. By his compromising with evil, and his misplaced compassion, he paved the way for Obama to rise to power. His convictions were very weak, and that made him a weak leader. He lost the respect of both conservatives and liberals.
We need a much stronger man for our next president — a man of true convictions, who will not buckle under to the threats and attacks from the wicked atheist, humanist, communist, liberal, anti-family, anti-American crowd. We need a proven man we have known for awhile; not some new guy or gal no one knows hardly anything about. We need a person who has actually successfully governed for a long period of time — not a “community organizer” who has never governed even a tiny country village. We need a selfless man who truly loves the USA, and who is right now working with all his might to get God-fearing conservatives elected all across the country; not a selfish man who is only concerned about power for himself. And we need to get behind that man now, while there is some hope of saving our freedom and country, not wait until the presidential primaries begin to start looking. By then it will be too late. There is only one man who meets all those qualifications, and his name is Mike Huckabee. Is he perfect? No, only God is perfect. And, thank God, Huckabee doesn’t claim to be God, like you-know-who does. But he is the best presidential candidate America has had in this generation — even Better than Ronald Reagan.
