Something to think about.

I just found this to be interesting and thought others should look at it.

Is Iran laying a trap for Israel?

Everyday the rhetoric in the not so cold war between Iran and Israel grows. Why does Iran almost seem to be egging for a fight? Is Iran building nuclear weapons? I think the more important question is, why is Iran trying to start a war? Iran may or may not be building it's nuclear arsenal but I think it's a distinct possibility that Iran is laying a trap for Israel. Here is the scenario that I think is coming.

Iran keeps saying and doing things that will make Israel feel as if it must strike first. This is what Iran wants, believe it or not. Then Iran will prove that they have no nuclear weapons (or try really hard to prove this) and build a force to hit back against Israel. They will lead with the argument that Israel attacked them with no valid reason. They will say surely Israel knew it didn't have these weapons and attacked anyway. This may convince other Arab nations in the region that they need to work to eliminate Israel in all out war. This would fulfill what they are saying now that "Israel will be destroyed in the next war." I think they could be trying to create a self-fulfilling prophecy.

This may not be the exact scenario or it may not be the case at all, but you have to wonder why Iran keeps making outrageous statements about Israel. I think Hitler made the same type of statements and no one believed he would do anything to support his views. We need to be careful we don't allow Ahmadinejad to do the same thing. But we also need to be careful not to rush in because Iran today is not Germany in the 1930's. Iran's president does not run the country but Ayatollah Khomeini has final say on everything. I really hope the United States and Israel has the intelligence to discern what Iran is really planning. Either way this is a very dangerous game that Iran is engaged in and I don’t think that it will just go away.

Is obama the Antichrist?

Is Obama the Antichrist? Barrack Obama who has a cult like following to his cult of personality has many people wandering, either laughingly or seriously if he is the Antichrist and some people wandering if he is the messiah (

If you do a search on the topic you will find people somewhat jokingly referring to obama as the Antichrist or people defending him and saying that those who say such things are right wing nuts. It's a question worth considering for a moment. While I don't believe Obama is THE Antichrist, he may be one in a way. Besides the Antichrist who will come there are many smaller forms and Jesus said the spirit of Antichrist was already at work.

The thing that should scare you is how quickly this media creation came to prominence and suddenly so many are following his good sounding but empty message of hope. Many are looking for some kind of change and what I really think is that they are looking for peace both internationally and personally. Barack Obama can not bring peace on either of these fronts but the Antichrist will be one who comes promising peace.

Mostly Obama is a media creation who touts the same liberal ideas as other democrats, if not more so. But the difference is, he's good looking, a good speaker and he avoids talking about his actual opinions on issues. I hate to say it but because he is black that plays a part into why people follow him too. While there are just as many good looking nice sounding black men as there are white men, for reasons that I won't go into here, they are not as often portrayed in the media as much and definitely not in politics. So Obama fits the role of what the democrats wanted and now he's a superstar.

Is it now so hard to imagine a charismatic leader who speaks out of both sides of his mouth, promising everything to everyone, coming to power nationally or internationally? I think the time is ripe for the Antichrist to come to power and when he does people will scoff at the idea of that person being the Antichrist, just as they scoff at the idea of Mr. Obama being the Antichrist. Barack Obama may not be the Antichrist but his campaign for president should be a wake up call of the Antichrist who is to come.
