Observations on this National Day of Prayer

A few historical examples of national days of public thanks-giving and prayer:

March 16, 1776

October 11, 1782

October 3, 1789

July 7, 1864

1952 – Congress established National Day of Prayer as an annual event by a joint resolution, signed into law by President Truman.

1988 – The law was amended and signed by President Reagan, designating the National Day of Prayer as the first Thursday in May.

There have been 134 national calls to prayer, humiliation, fasting and thanksgiving by the President of the United States (1789-2008).

There have been 56 Presidential Proclamations for a “National Day of Prayer” (1952-2008).

Now consider….

1997 – 

Illinois State Senate
90th General Assembly
Summary of SR0110

Senate Sponsors:
OBAMA.

Short description:
11/1/97-ISLAMIC COMMUNITY DAY

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
Declares November 1, 1997 to be South Shore Islamic Community Center Day.

2009Obama is distancing himself from the National Day of Prayer while at the same time the government will begin taking land from seven property owners so that the Flight 93 memorial can be built in the form of a giant Mecca-oriented crescent!

Yes, really.

Maybe Obama doesn’t want to pray publicly because if he did, people would see him on his knees, bowing toward Mecca.  Remember that no president before Obama ever bowed before a foreign leader, let alone an absolute monarch and guardian of Mecca.

We were forewarned, but not enough people connected the dots…

Jihad: From Jakarta To The Whitehouse

On this National Day of Prayer, let’s talk about salvation…

that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

Romans 10:9

Obama’s concept of salvation is certainly not based on confessing with his mouth the Lord Jesus and believing in his heart that God has raised Jesus from the dead.

What Obama confessed was:

As a starting point, it means I believe in — that Jesus Christ died for my sins, and that I am redeemed through him.

Obama did not confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. And while Obama said Jesus Christ died (everyone dies), Obama did not say that God raised Jesus Christ from the dead (a unique sign that Jesus Christ truly is the son of God).

If you think this is not a big deal, try getting Obama to confess with his mouth, even a single time, “Jesus Christ is Lord”. The Bible says (emphasis mine)

Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God calls Jesus accursed, and no one can say that Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit.

1 Corinthians 12:3

Obama didn’t say “Jesus is Lord”. Obama didn’t say that salvation depends on confessing with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believing in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead.

Quite to the contrary, Obama has said that individual salvation depends on something other than Jesus Christ. Obama has said that his individual salvation depends our collective salvation.

Please pray for our country. 

Please heed these words:

if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

2 Chronicles 7:14

    2009 …so that the Flight 93 memorial can be built in the form of a giant Mecca-oriented crescent!

    Yes, really.

    You do know that the design for this project was in 2005 don’t you?

    You do know that they altered the design 2 months later, so it is now in the shape of a circle rather than a crescent don’t you?

    You do know that the co-chairs of the National Memorial development are those Muslim lovers Tommy Franks and Tom Ridge don’t you?

    You do know that Obama has had nothing to-do with the design of this project, don’t you?

    I think you forgot to take your “red pill” as your paranoid delusions of conspiracies are back.

  2. Chill Pill,

    Practically everyone knows that when Muslims pray, it is very important to them to be oriented towards Mecca.

    Qiblah (Arabic: قبلة‎, also transliterated as Kiblah) is an Arabic word for the direction that should be faced when a Muslim prays during Salah. Most mosques contain a niche in a wall that indicates the qiblah.

    The qiblah has importance to more than just the salaat, and plays an important part in everyday ceremonies. The head of an animal that is slaughtered using Halal methods is aligned with the qiblah. After death, Muslims are buried with their faces in the direction of the qiblah. Thus, archeology can indicate a Muslim necropolis if no other signs are present.

    A mihrab (Arabic: محراب pl. محاريب‎) is a niche in the wall of a mosque that indicates the qibla, that is, the direction of the Kaaba in Mecca and hence the direction that Muslims should face when praying. The wall in which a mihrab appears is thus the “qibla wall.”

    On September 11, 2001, Muslim Jihadists killed thousands of Americans.

    Now, you think it’s paranoid that the 9/11 memorial in PA has been designed as a mihrab?

    You think it’s paranoid that the trees have been selected and arranged so that on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks the leaves on the trees will form a red crescent?

    There is no group more attuned to symbolism and the “meaning” of structures than architects. It is their business to take drawings and, ultimately, wood, glass, and stone, and create meaning out of it. That this design is in some way accidental or coincidental is preposterous.

    yes

  4. Commonsensus says:

    Wow…..I need to know several things. The first is where you got that book you use to make certain recognition of who is Christian and who is not. Is it part of the McCarthy journals or something?

    Who gave you the right to make that judgment? I thought God was the judge, and Jesus said “judge not, lest ye be judged.” Whether you want to believe it or not, you are being judgmental and effectively taking power from the rightful judge. Are you a God? Remember, “thou shalt have no other God before me.” By setting yourself up as the judge you are in effect also setting yourself up as a God. Should we worship you now oh wise one?

    To the point, I would not have even answered those questions, as religion, like sex, is a deeply personal thing, and between me and God alone. It is not for the likes of you to know, and even more improper for you to ask. Get it? The freedom of religion you speak of guarantees me the right to worship as I please, when I please, how I please, and to whom I please. This right also guarantees that you can not usurp my intentions in my religion, with my religion, and for my religion. You can not tell me anything about religion at all if I choose not to listen. It is all of you “christian” extremists who have it wrong. When you talk about someone not being christian you are practicing “religious persecution”. Think of religion like this when considering what your rights are in respect to it, “don’t ask, dont tell”

  5. The book is the Bible.

    Don’t Be A Judge, But Do Be A Fruit Inspector.

    If someone says, “I am a Christian”, I have every right to look at the fruit of their words and actions, and compare that to what the Bible says. That doesn’t mean I’m setting myself up as a God or seeking your worship. To suggest I am is patently absurd.

    I completely agree with the following:

    The freedom of religion you speak of guarantees me the right to worship as I please, when I please, how I please, and to whom I please.

    You go on to say

    This right also guarantees that you can not usurp my intentions in my religion, with my religion, and for my religion.

    That is correct, too, but while I am not trying to usurp your intentions in your religion, you are trying to usurp mine.

    You go on to say

    When you talk about someone not being christian you are practicing “religious persecution”.

    I have pointed out that Obama has publicly said, “I am a Christian”, but he has not publicly said what Romans 10:9 says is required for Christian salvation. I am not “persecuting” Obama.

    But I understand why you are so fixated on “religious persecution”. In one of your other comments, you said that you are a Mormon. While I am not “persecuting” Mormons, I understand that Mormons have faced persecution before, and some Mormons (certainly not all) are hyper-sensitive about this topic. Just as many Obama supporters believe any criticism of Obama is based on racism, many Romney supporters believe any criticism of Romney is based on persecution of Mormons.

    Never mind that Romney broke a promise less than 48 hours after making it, and did everything in his power to completely “sell out” to John McCain just so that the evangelical Mike Huckabee wouldn’t have a chance to win the Republican nomination. Romney promised on the evening of February 5th, 2008 that he would fight all the way to the convention. The next day he met behind closed doors with secretive “prominent Republicans”. The next day he broke his word, dropped out saying that staying in would be “aiding a surrender to terror”. A week later he did something that can only be described as a complete sell-out to John McCain… Romney “released” his delegates to McCain. Why? The only reasonable explanation is that Romney was trying to put additional pressure on Huckabee to quit the race, in order to hand the victory to John McCain on a silver platter.

    Romney vs. Huckabee

    “Despicable Religious Prejudice”?

    During the 2008 Republican primary, I witnessed more examples of hatred from Mormons towards evangelicals than vice versa. I really don’t want to get into a heated discussion with you now. I love you, as Jesus taught me to, and you are free to worship however you choose. I am not persecuting you or anyone else.

  6. When it comes to the Founders and the Constitution, David Barton knows orders of magnitude more than Jon Stewart.

    Jon Stewart threw every straw man (that his staff gave him on note cards) that he could at David Barton, and Barton knocked every single one of those straw men down. Barton has spent decades studying thousands of primary source documents. Stewart has spent minutes, possibly hours, studying the note cards his staff gave him. It was no contest. Every time Stewart threw a false accusation at Barton, Barton countered with the truth. And every time, Stewart would interrupt Barton’s answer. Stewart could only crack a joke or change the subject; he couldn’t have a straight-up discussion of the truth.

    I would love to see a similar discussion between David Barton and “Constitutional Law” lecturer Barack Obama.

    When it comes to the Founders and the Constitution, David Barton knows orders of magnitude more than Barack Obama.
