I had to turn off the television again as it broadcast (“live”), this National Prayer service at the National Cathedral, and this is why: the cross is entered into the sanctuary, Barack Obama raises up his chin again in an exceptionally vain contrariness, his withholding of respect ongoing – I noted exactly the same response by Obama yesterday during the Inauguration ceremony when prayer was begun by Rick Warren: at the mention by Warren — in prayer to God — of service “with humility,” Obama was seen raising up that chin of his in a contrary statement to what most of us define as an agreement with the words being prayed.
At the National Prayer service, a Baptist minister began to pray and prayed for “Barack Hussein Obama and wife, Michelle” and nary a mention of the United States of America was uttered. It’s a NATIONAL PRAYER ceremony, not a “Barack Hussein Obama” prayer ceremony but that’s yet another of the current reworking underway: it’s all about a (false) messiah and it’s shameful beyond description.
So we have the terror among us now, that which our Lord God (that’d be the Alpha-Omega, King of Kings, the Creator, Jehovah) has warned us would come to pass and I make no lightness about writing this: we see before us today, at this very hour, that which God has warned us would come to pass, and we must have faith: in God, not in the anti-Christ.
God tells us that many will be led astray by a false prophet, by the anti-Christ and his plans, by promises of “peace” and other delusions. So we have “hope” and “change” and the cult-of-personality actions that inspire those who follow such and who are led astray by these empty, pompous platitudes, now adulating to a point of rapture that which is contrary to the Divine.
We see before us today, at this very hour, that which God has warned us would come to pass, and we must have faith: in God, not in the anti-Christ.
As Americans, however, we must have faith in our country and ourselves, not in the anti-Christ, not in the vanity of personality and fame, not in any individual who assumes any place higher than our national ideals of a republic nor follow anyone who entices us to be so led astray.
“Two Catholic bishops (are) present…at the National Prayer Service…held at the Episcopal Church’s National Cathedral (today). Archbishop Donald Wuerl of Washington will deliver a prayer for the nation, and Auxiliary Bishop Francisco Gonzalez Valer of Washington will read from Scripture.”
Returning now to the television, I’m tuning into EWTN in hopes of finding respectful prayers for our nation and for mankind, for all of us, against sin and evil of all kind. I hope these two Catholic bishops (Donald Wuerl and Francisco Valer) in D.C. at this hour will be priests before God and not serve that which is contrary to holiness.
POPE BENEDICT’S LETTER TO BARACK OBAMA (he encourages Obama to succeed in representing the people of the United States of America).
HOWEVER, the sin again:
My summation from the news found at that link: the anti-abortion (honorable in premise and position) parishoners at a Catholic mass gave Joe Biden a “standing ovation” after Biden received communion.
The Church (that includes “parishoners“) must take a consistent stand against sin; giving Biden and others like him — who are abortion advocates — both communion and a “standing ovation” is not the way to go about accomplishing any point except to indulge and encourage ongoing sin. One must declare who one serves and there is no grey area between the two polarities: you either serve sin (and the spirit of the anti-Christ) and declare your love therein, or you love God and serve God. Picking-apart and reformatting “who God is” without referencing who God is — He’s right there in his Word, in His presence through the Holy Spirit, in Jesus Christ, His only son — is the effort of those who turn away from God and effort to create their own, same as what the old devil does.
Sin should never be applauded, either in figure or fact, either in representative or advocation. And it should never be applauded and supported when “it” is present in high places, as also never tolerated in the lowly. Sin leads us astray, captures us in webs of unholy celebration of sin, lies to us that it doesn’t really exist. Which is why it destroys those who fancy it, who deem themselves and sin fancier for doing so: vanity, or, (to) “be like God,” the human reinvention of what is worshipped when God’s rejected as the one and only. A man in the Presidency (or Vice-Presidency) is still a man, he nor the Office is to be worshipped, glorified or held any higher than human conditions. And yet, today, witness all of that wretched adulation and more.
