Jesus told the Pharisees, “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it” (John 8:44).
Some will criticize me for writing it this, but those who habitually lie are following Satan. It doesn’t matter if they graduated from Columbia College, attended Harvard Law School or whatever. Jesus (not me) said those who abide not in the truth (habitual liars) are children of the devil. He also said, “Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh” (Matthew 12:34b).
This is my point: There is something unbelievable in the White House. President Obama says the United States has Israel’s back, the United States will protect Israel, an Israeli peace deal with the PA could contain sufficient security guarantees for Israel and more, but can anyone believe him?
In his early years, he was exposed to a religion that allows him to lie for self-preservation or to advance his religious causes. On his way to the White House he used several Social Security numbers including one of a deceased man and a birth certificate that has been declared fraudulent. He took an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States, but has acted like it is a meaningless scrap of trash.
He promised to put America back to work on shovel-ready jobs and later admitted that those shovel-ready jobs weren’t so shovel-ready after all. He promised to go through America’s budget line by line and cut the deficit in half, but he has caused the deficit to soar. He promised to close Guantanamo in the first year of his presidency, but it is still open. He promised to be the most transparent government ever, but he immediately sealed many of his records and he has covered up more scandals than Richard Nixon or any other American President ever dreamed of.
He promised to put all bills on the White House website for five days before he signed them, but it hasn’t happened. He promised to unite America and begin a new era of bipartisan cooperation on all matters, but he made illegal recess appointments to the NLRB. America has never been more divided and he cooperates with no one in the opposing party. He promised that Obamacare would cause the cost of healthcare to go down, but the price has soared for most people unless they have a very high deductible. He promised if you like your health insurance, you can keep it, period, but records show he lied not once, but over and over again. PolitiFact dubbed this boldface lie: “Lie of the Year.”
President Obama lies with ease and has surrounded himself with people who have followed his unchristian example. James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence, testified before Congress that the NSA could not listen to the phone calls of American citizens, but in a matter of days we learned that they could. Lois Lerner, Director of the IRS Exempt Organizations Division, blamed the targeting of conservatives on low-level employees in Cincinnati, but those employees said they were directed to do it by their senior officials.
Hillary Clinton, former Secretary of State, blamed the murder of America’s Ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens, on an Internet video defaming Islam; President Obama repeated this lie before the UN and AmbassadorSusan Rice repeated this lie several times on TV. Eric Holder denied that the Justice Department was involved in a gun running operation in the Fast and Furious scandal that resulted in the death of a border patrol agent, but he was forced to retract is lie when some of the guns turned up in Mexico. He denied hearing about or having any involvement in the potential prosecution of Fox News Reporter James Rosen, but it turned out that he signed the warrant to do it.
Valerie Jarrett, President Obama’s Iranian born Senior Advisor, conducted secret negotiations with Iran that resulted in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Israel and others accusing the United States of lying and misleading them; and Iran accusing the Obama Administration of lying, misleading the American public and posting false information on the White House website. At first, John Kerry said Israel has been kept fully apprised of those negotiations with Iran, but then he said Israel has never seen the terms of the proposed deal with Iran and therefore should not question it. And the lying goes on and on.
According to the Bible, the Antichrist will cast truth to the ground (Daniel 8:12). He will confirm a covenant with Israel for seven years of peace and break it after three and one-half years (Daniel 9:27). He will proclaim peace and safety, but his lie will bring sudden destruction not peace (1 Thessalonians 5:3). He will come on the scene as a charismatic man of peace (Revelation 6:2) and exit the scene trying to destroy Israel (Zechariah 14:2; Revelation 19:11-21). Israel’s short term future is bleak because they will believe his lies, but Israel’s long term future is wonderful because the King whose Word is true is coming.
