For me, I'm very selective to whom I share these thing with, because most people are just freaked out and can't handle it. And they are not necessarily non-Christians; there are some Christians I know who just want to hear happy-go-lucky stuff and none of the pending horrors of prophecy. Needless to say, it surprises me.
I'm with diversteach on this one. He's got all the charisma and following you'd expect. If nothing else, can we agree he's a type and shadow of the AC to come?
On a side note, most people I know (especially my family) think I'm waaaay too interested in current events and the end times stuff. Does anyone else get that from people they know? How do you handle it?
Ditto for me!
But also, here in Australia if you talk about the US most people just don't understand the interest... I guess I spend so much time in here that I even dream about Obama! Ahhhh well. Some people just aren't that tuned into prophecy and when I come to explain, there is just too much to explain.... the subject is too complex and there are so many prophecies, you just can't have a 5 minute discussion.... you need to spend time and delve deeper.
Personally, I don't think Obama is the ac but I don't think he will be good for the US.
Australians can be the worst when it comes to showing interest in prophecy, I typically get this attitude "but its all overseas, who cares?. Erm...Over here or over there, it's still all happening on this little place we call earth.
First they came for the Jews, they killed and maimed and we stopped them not.
Then they came for the Christians, they killed and maimed but we stopped them not.
Then they came for all who saught goodness, so men begun to dispise goodness so that they would not be killed.
Who then will stand against them? The workers of the devil, they are those who do the evil deeds, who will stand against them?!
They are at the door of the Jews, seeking there destruction, but the Jews have not the true tools of war to overcome them, they do not yet stand in the power of Christ. Christains, and all seekers of goodness, shall we stand by and watch as the Jews are first taken, how long until the workers of evil are at our doorstep demanding our life too?
I do not agree with this physical war, physical weapons are tools of the enemy and are not for us to use, there can come not peace from physical supremacy. But the reasons for war, that Israel is justifed in going to war, a spiritual war, these reasons I perceive are fair and just, Israel has a right to refute the claims of anyone who seeks to demand they are given any less then what was given to them rightfully by the Word of God established in the Bible.
This war against the Jews, is a war against Christains, it's a war against all humanity who seeks goodness and righteousness, it is a war against God and any who hold him as their Lord.
Will Obama fight in this war? Will he use his position to speak the truth, to testify to Israels right to own their own lands, all of them. Or will he demand from Gods people what is rightfully theirs, will he do the work of the enemy.
