Only a month and a half after I promised to post the third in the series of political dreams, but in that time, this blog has had two–TWO–visitors, and then not to either of the dreams posts. So, if I’m tardy in posting something new, I’m sure you won’t mind, since you aren’t there. This truly is The Empty Church. Perhaps I should change the name of this blog, just as its purpose has changed.
But enough boohooing about my abysmal web statistics. The fact is that I’m not doing this so I can become the next big Christian blogmeister. I thought you should know that if you are reading this, you are a member of an exquisitely minuscule minority–fewer people than have walked on the moon.
This third dream came to me very shortly after the election of Barack Obama in 2008. It was nighttime (or at least very dark outside). I stood next to the Presidential limousine on the driver’s side, where rear door was open. An unknown man sat in the driver’s seat, and Barack Obama sat in the front passenger seat. An older man who was, or strongly resembled former senator Joseph Lieberman, sat in the back seat on the driver side. (Why Joe Lieberman should feature in this at all is beyond me). However, in the dream, Lieberman (for lack of a better label) is a brooding, dark personality that exudes extreme danger.
You have to understand that I have a law enforcement background, and at the time I was very unhappy about Obama’s election. I think part of the dream is me trying to reconcile myself with this unhappy state of affairs. Through the open back door where “Lieberman” is sitting, I try to persuade Obama and his bodyguards that this person is dangerous and the President should be moved away from him. During my rather desperate pleas to be heard, Obama sat unmoved. He sat upright in his seat and stared straight forward; his behavior made me think (in the dream) that he was acting like a mafia boss; this dangerous man did not worry him because this dangerous man was under his control.
I moved around to the front of the limousine (I don’t remember why) and at that time, “Lieberman” exited the vehicle and began attacking. His appearance hadn’t changed, but he had become an almost unkillable machine spewing flames in all directions. As I watched this through the windshield of the limo, I saw Obama sitting there still unmoved. He was utterly unconcerned as this man killed and destroyed. I understood that while “Lieberman” could be stopped, he was almost like the Terminator in that it would take an extraordinary, coordinated effort to destroy him. And here it ended.
Certainly Obama has unleashed chaos and violence on this nation. He is the Divider-in-Chief, sowing wherever he can division and discord, empowering criminals and hobbling law enforcement. There have been riots, terror, and violence under his rule. The federal government has morphed into a hated instrument of persecution and injustice. It is as if we do indeed have a crime lord in the White House, for criminals fill the halls of government, and the Executive branch is a cesspool of graft, corruption, mendacity, and overt anti-Christian, anti-Israeli, and pro-Islam bias. While I doubt Obama is the Antichrist, he is certainly an antichrist, and preparing the way for the Antichrist. Perhaps he is best described as an anti-John the Baptist. Truly, the devil has come down to Washington DC (but in all fairness, he’s probably had a standing accommodation at the Watergate Hotel for years).
I find it impossible to pray for this person, in spite of the biblical admonition to do so. The most I can do is pray for his speedy removal, because I believe Barack Obama is punishment sent on America for its idolatry, sorcery, necromancy, murders, greed, and violence. God forbid that another like him should follow. God forbid that America should continue on the immoral course that brought this judgment upon us, yet I see little sign of change.
I think I understand this dream, but I feel there are still elements about it that I haven’t understood. This much is certain; America is at the critical point in its history. How we proceed may determine whether we stand or fall.
