The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse is a Biblical prophecy straight out of the pages of the Book of Revelation.
These horsemen may have relevance to today’s newspaper headlines.
Let’s look and see.
As each of the first four of the Seven Seals was opened, those infamous horsemen were revealed one by one.
The first horse was white and he that sat on him had a bow, somebody had to give him a crown, and he went forth conquering and to conquer.
Well, the 20th Century was the bloodiest in the history of the world, a lot of conquering and to conquer. Looks like the 21st may be a repeat, maybe more, according to the Revelation.
Let me relate just one of many close encounters between Obama and one whose religion justifies conquering and to conquer, if you will.
Louis Farrakhan and his Nation of Islam staged a Million Man March on Washington, DC in 1995.
Though 13 years ago, Obama admitted he "took time off’ from his first political campaign for the Illinois state senate to participate in that Black Muslim-organized event in which Farrakhan was positioned to be the star.
Still, Obama constantly distances himself from the religion of Farrakhan though, at the time of the "March," he was enthusiastic saying, "There was a profound sense (there) that African-American men were ready to make a commitment to bring about change in our communities and lives."
The fact remains, if that was the case, this Muslim-centered event was the primer getting them pumped up.
The next horse was red: "and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth and that they should kill one another: and there was given him a great sword."
Enter Saul Alinsky of Chicago.
In his 1971 book, Rules for Radicals, he wrote, "The Prince was written by Machiavelli for the Haves on how to hold power. "Rules for Radicals is written for the Have-Nots on how to take it away."
In Saul Alinsky we discover where and for what Obama uses (and over-uses) the "change" word which he wears out in his campaign jargon. Jerome Corsi, in his book The Obama Nation says Alinsky became famous for making "change" his credo.
(Although Saul Alinsky died in 1972, Obama attended and later taught at the Gamaliel Foundation and at the Industrial Areas Foundation, both of which are into "community organizing," primarily with religious groups as are found, for example, in South Chicago’s government housing district.
These two organization’s roots can be traced straight to Saul Alinsky.)
And the "change" Alinsky and Obama constantly make reference to is a taking-over of power from who they refer to as the Haves, not so much for the Have-Nots, but more for themselves.
This is easily seen, in that the so-called Have-Nots have not received much relief from those promising it for them since at least the 60’s and LBJ’s so-called War on Poverty.
But they’ve received the promises of change none-the-less, year after Democratic year.
Yes, these "Have-Nots" are constantly on the receiving end of eternal promises of "change," but the only change they ever seem to see is in a new extension to their status as slaves on the Washington plantation.
This has been and remains a source of great frustration in that community, sometimes leading to uprisings, riots, etc... in other words, an end to peace... and, by virtue of their votes, enabling a seizing of America’s great sword of power by unscrupulous people, power that could be used to eventually kill one another (or whoever might be seen by them as a threat).
Some may scoff at this idea, but the regimes of Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Mao (you name them) were begun with promises of "change."
The people being deceived had to but relinquish their power and give their vote, as it were, to the socialists, communists, fascists, etc., who were making the big promises, leaving the details of "change" up to them.
History has shown those details have ended (or are ending) in disaster.
Are we seeing the beginning of a repeat to history in this election year of 2008?
Next week, we will look at the remaining riders and their horde; a black horseman with the pair of balances in his hand and the pale horse ridden by death, with hell following. Read up on these horsemen and much more, in Revelation 5 and 6.
Go ahead and read the entire book.
May God bless.
