Prophetic word for today

The inevitable fall

First posted: October 25, 2010

Word received by: Shamah-Elim Bible Studies


On October 5, 2010, barack obama was in Washington, D.C., speaking at Fortune Magazine's "Most Powerful Women Summit". As you may know, a "presidential seal" is always placed on lecterns where U.S. presidents speak. Therefore, the seal was placed on the lectern where obama was speaking that day. As he was deeply engaged in reading his ever-faithful companion, the teleprompter, the seal suddenly fell off the lectern, making a thunderous sound as it hit the ground. This is what obama was saying at that precise moment:

We cannot sustain --- oops --- was that my ......? Oh, goodness ...... Thatís all right ...... All of you know who I am.


A video of the incident is available on YouTube.


My, my, my

Fellow believer, one of the first things that immediately hit my spirit when I watched a video of the incident for the first time was the phrase "was that my ...". Why didn't obama simply say, "Was that the seal?"? The fact that the first thing that unconsciously came out of this behema's mouth was the word "my" reveals his absolute self-absorption. Instead of seeing the seal as a mere formality, he saw it as a glaring announcement to all of how important the "man" behind the lectern was. This absolute self-absorption is emphasised by what he said after that, "All of you know who I am". Instead of joking about the poor job government does at "installing" things, or joking about the "bad luck he has been having" (which would be typical of a more humble, self-deprecating individual), he found the need to redeem his own personal greatness upon seeing "my precious" (seal) go down so scandalously.


As we have shared before, the etymological root of the word "idiot" reveals that it applies to people who are stupefied by their own self-absorption. It is no coincidence, therefore, that the word "idiot" starts with an "I" and has an "I" in the middle. Thus, the seal incident once again reveals the fact that barack obama is an "idiot", not in the haphazard, pejorative sense of the word, but in the etymological and spiritual sense of it. An idiot is so self-absorbed that the world can be collapsing all about him as a result of his own idiotic decisions, but he can still see himself as a "winner", a "conqueror", and a "brilliant success". Even as the American economy is decaying and suffering a terrible damage that will take decades to undo, obama can look at his idiotic policies that have caused all the damage and consider himself a "great man" and an "unquestionable hero".


Without knowing it, by using the words "my" and "I" when referring to the seal, barack husseIn obama was prophesying his own fall, for, as he revealed his soul's attachment to the seal, the fall of the seal went from being an innocent "prop blunder" to a manifestation of his own demise. By attaching his sense of self-identity to the seal, he went down as the seal went down. He will be remembered in history as the worst president in American history, the most manipulative, the most deceitful, the most ideologically intransigent, and the most anti-American man to have ever sat in the Oval Office. He shall be seen as a foreigner, as foreign to America as any man born and raised in Africa, Saudi Arabia, or some other third-world region (this is why the question of whether he was literally born in Kenya or not is somewhat irrelevant, for at his heart, obama the behemoth is an alien, a foreigner to all the God-of-Israel principles that undergird the founding of America). obama will be the source of perennial shame for black Americans, who stupidly chose this man to be the so-called "first black President" in American history. Unlike Jackie Robinson, who broke baseball's colour barrier through talent, courage, and great character, barack obama has unfortunately broken the White House's "colour barrier" through manipulation, demagoguery, and deceit. As the years and decades go by, the God of Israel will bear out the fact that barack obama achieved the title of "president of the United States" through illegal means (both literally and figuratively). This is why even his swearing in during his "inauguration" was bungled, forcing a "do over" in which the Bible was notoriously absent. God does not recognise this narcissistic buffoon as president of the United States, just as He did not recognise Saul as king of Israel after the kingdom was stripped from him (1 Samuel 15:26-28). Black Americans in future will be able to use this spiritual fact to deny the embarrassing claim that barack obama was the "first black president", for in God's eyes, he is not the "president", full stop. I do not know if I will be alive to see it, but I pray that the time will come when a black (and an American) will truly be president of the United States.


Yours, yours, all yours

Despite all of the above, it must be emphasised that, even though he is not "the President of the United States", he is "your president", America, because you voted for him. He is your responsibility, and you deserve the destruction that this man is doing to you because you asked for him the way Israel asked for Saul and the way the religious Jews asked for Barabbas. It is no spiritual coincidence that a whore named "Saul Alinsky" underpins everything that community-organiser barabbas obama believes in and stands for. America has, thus, given the spirit of Saul free rein to attack the remnant spirit of David during what has now turned into a rather protracted shark season. It is no coincidence either that the whore Alinsky's full name was "Saul David Alinsky", which speaks of relegating the spirit of David to a secondary plane and allowing the spirit of Saul to thrive. Because of you, America, the spirit of Saul was able to take advantage of the spiritual doors opened by David in order to forge its own malignant agenda. By ignoring David, America allowed korah to seize the moment and inflict great damage. You asked for it, America; the narcissist barack hussein obama is indeed your president, and you must live with the consequences of your misdeed.


Despite all the damage that obama has inflicted and continues to inflict, my spirit has yet to hear a significant cry of repentance from America, even amongst those who are supposedly waking up to the magnitude of the destruction. Most of these Americans simply want to return to "the way things were" before obama, which shows that they remain completely unaware of the spiritual flaws in America that enabled obama's rise in the first place. Many of these Americans, who worship at the altar of Reagan (the way liberals do at the altar of obama), are unaware of the very notorious incompleteness in the "conservative" paradigm. They can look to their hero Ronald Reagan's 8 years in office and see "nothing but unadulterated success". Even when some of them may be willing to admit that Reagan "was not perfect", they never specify where his "imperfections" lay, meaning that the phrase "he was not perfect" is nothing but an empty phrase, a convenient blanket for any indiscretion or mistake that Reagan may or may not have committed. These Reagan-worshippers, however, fail to see how Reagan degraded over the years into a man of many compromises, both politically and in his personal life (examples of which are his choice of "voodoo-economics critic" George H. W. Bush as vice-president and his willingness to let matriarchal Nancy have her fortune tellers over for tea in the White House). A man with such great oratory skills and depth of thinking as Reagan stood idly as he watched America become indifferent to both the national debt and the rising phenomenon of private debt. To most Reagan supporters in 1984, the fact that America's national debt had doubled from 1 trillion to 2 trillion dollars during Reagan's first term was just "numbers on a piece of paper". As long as the economy was "booming", they did not care, and Reagan made no tangible effort to make them care, as long as he had their support. Unintentionally, Reagan allowed conservatism to be interpreted as an "every man out for himself" philosophy, a philosophy with a focus on tangible personal benefit and a disregard for intangible collective consequences, all under the basic belief that, if you look out for yourself, the "collective good" will always take care of itself. This is why conservatism is an inherently incomplete philosophy that cannot truly forge level-2 righteousness; therefore, it leaves a spiritual vacuum that is always filled (eventually) by satan; and, after it is, conservatives always turn around and wonder, "Where did that come from?".


Reagan never challenged the liberal Congress publically on its runaway spending, at least in a meaningful way that would have forced Congress to face the wrath of a fiscally-conscious American people. During the 1960s and early 70s, Reagan gave powerful and inspirational speeches on the importance of limited government and fiscal discipline, but, as a sitting president, he never told America that their temporary prosperity should not prevent them seeing the trillion-dollar gorilla that was growing right before their eyes. Despite being a man of great compassion and appreciation for all human beings regardless of gender or race, Reagan never used his great oratory skills to make black America know that he cared about them and that they indeed had a future in America if they only changed their understanding. Despite being a Christian of strong personal moral convictions, he never dared to confront the moral unrighteousness inherent in black America, an unrighteousness that has caused many of her members to remain in perennial poverty and underdevelopment, which has allowed their paranoid resentment of "white America" to fester even more, to the point that 96% of blacks ended up voting for leftist demagoguecrat obama (over a "white guy") 20 years after Reagan had left office.


Even though the national debt was almost tripled during Reagan's 8 years, most "conservatives" in America did not care about that little detail then, and they still do not care now. In their view, any problem with the debt during the 1980s is simply the Democrat Congress's fault because they "held the purse strings", and America's festering social issues can simply be attributed to "ignorance that will somehow go away". To these Americans, Reagan was a "great man" because he made them feel good by allowing them to feed off of their own narcissistic patriotism. That is why America was awarded her own precious narcissist in the Oval Office 20 years after Reagan left it.


To the Reagan-worshipping conservatives, America was "perfect" the way its founding fathers framed her, but they fail to realise that these founding fathers, outstanding as they may have been, left many gaping holes in the constitutional and political system they forged. Like Reagan, these founding fathers were willing to compromise on various issues (such as slavery), leaving these issues unresolved for a future generation to handle, and they left many structural problems that hinder America's political and social development to this day (problems such as the hierarchical Congressional system and the current political-party paradigm). Therefore, simply "returning to the founding fathers" would mean that America has learnt nothing from its 200-year experiment and from the mistakes made by men who were humanly unable to foresee all the consequences of the wonderful (but incomplete) framework they were establishing. The belief that the framework left by the founding fathers was fundamentally "complete" is further evidence of the narcissistic view that American conservatives have of America. Only a narcissist can believe that he was born perfect. Even Yeshua, the Son of the Living God, understood that He was born "imperfect" and that He required a process to reach the perfect standard that the Father was calling Him to reach (Hebrews 5:7-9). Therefore, we can say that the conservative Americans who are now reacting to obama are exhibiting some of the same narcissism that they see in him. Even though they may regret the election of obama, their repentance is incomplete, and it is completely unsatisfactory to God, for it fails to address the foundational problems in America's social and political structures that are preventing America fulfilling its calling. It is not inherently wrong for something to be incomplete, but when you settle for incompleteness (true and errorless as it may be), the parts that you should have already completed begin to be filled up with falsehood, turning the "incomplete but acceptable (for now)" into "completely unacceptable (now and always)" (Luke 11:24-26).


America's repentance remains incomplete, not only in the natural political realm but in the spiritual realm, for many of those who abhor korah obama and his policies continue to support the undead korah leaders that control the American Church and who continue to hinder God's latter-rain purposes in America.


The royalty syndrome

The spirit of ministerial elitism that is prevalent in the American Church system has, over the decades, spilled over into its political system, creating an oligarchy of arrogant men and women who feel entitled to special privileges and power not available to the "mere American mortal". Unfortunately, the office of the Presidency, which was established in repudiation of monarchical despotism, has also been contaminated by this spirit of elitism, and it has slowly degenerated into a "quasi-kingship" due to the undue homage that Americans pay to each sitting president. Something happens to the human psyche when you have an entourage of secret service agents surrounding you everywhere you go; something happens to the human psyche when men in dark glasses go around clearing up entire rooms so that you may walk in unimpeded. Something happens to the human psyche when people swoon whenever you walk by them and shake their hand, acting as if they just saw a god descending from Mount Olympus. Some psyches are affected more than others, but psyches such as obama's, which already have a predisposition for self-glorification, are enthralled by the royal treatment that surrounds the U.S. presidency and begin to believe that they are indeed "kings". This is why obama is constantly golfing, hosting parties in the White House, and why his wife goes out on lavish holidays at taxpayers' expense. In this corrupted context, the presidential seal becomes one more element "certifying" the president's royal status. Under the elitist mindset, a lectern becomes more than a "lectern" when the "president of the United States" stands behind it and speaks from it. It is as if, for a brief moment in time, the lectern is given the privilege to "touch eternity", and the presidential seal is proof of it.


Once again, America is responsible for turning the presidency into a quasi-kingship. Just as Israel did with Saul, America sometimes feels the need to have a king (i.e.- a "despot") "like all the other nations" (1 Samuel 8:5), as if the exaltation of a country's leaders somehow reflects on the greatness of the country per se. When a country's people exalt their leaders to a "higher level of being", they are unconsciously trying to have bragging rights over other nations, as when a housewife brags with other housewives in the neighbourhood over the big promotion that her husband just got at work, which is a subconscious way of saying, "I am better than you because my husband is better than yours" (Isaiah 4:1). It is easier to exalt yourself by artificially exalting your masters than by dealing with your cold, hard reality and leaving it up to the God of Truth to exalt you.


In short, it is America's fault that she is now ruled by an elitist quasi-royalty that goes to Washington to work for a royal "title" (à la barbara boxer) instead of earnestly working like servants under a heavy sense of accountability to the people. America has asked for a naked emperor to rule over her from Washington, and her wish has indeed been granted.


The timing

The fact that obama's seal fell on 5 October 2010 is no spiritual coincidence. As we have shared before, the first full day of obama as "elected president of the United States" was 5 November, 2008, the day when the winning number in Illinois lottery's evening Pick3 was "666". This means that the seal fell exactly 23 calendar months after obama had officially become the "elected president". As we have said before, the number "23" is a "pastoral" number; "months", on the other hand, point to the rotation of the moon around the Earth, and, as we have said before, the moon points to the "female" soul (as opposed to the sun, which points to the "male" spirit). Therefore, the 23 calendar months points to how barack obama's presidency is an abhorrent manifestation of the soul trying to maintain its hegemony over the spirit on Earth, but the Lord God of Israel is declaring that the soul's hegemony cannot be sustained, hard as obama and others may try to maintain it. As we have said before, Chicago, Illinois is the chief stronghold (the "spiritual capital", shall we say) of the pastoral matriarchy in America. Therefore, as the seal fell, God was declaring to Chicagoan barack hussein obama that the soul's matriarchal stronghold shall not stand, fiercely as she (i.e.- obama's soul) may try to preserve it. Even though this American generation has chosen not to tear it down, the matriarchal stronghold shall surely not stand much longer. Too much foundational damage has been done to its structure for it to remain in erect arrogance much longer. Like the walls of Jericho, it shall come tumbling down, for God's remnant trumpets have already caused too much irreparable damage within her structures.


The date 5 October 2010 was obama's day #624 in office as "president of the United States" (with 20 January 2009 being day #1). The number 624 equals 6 times 104. "Coincidentally", the number 104 points to something the Lord had us say some 3-and-a-half years ago, when He had us talk about 6 judgement periods that went from June 9, 2004 to May 10, 2009. The 6th and final period was 104 weeks long, and, as we shared then, the number "104" pointed to America's Jericho walls tumbling down. Therefore, the fact that obama's seal fell on his day #624 (=6 * 104) in office is God's way of pointing back to the 6th judgement period that He put America through between 2007 and 2009. The Lord is thus reminding America that what He spoke then was "no joke", and that He is in the midst of toppling her Jericho stronghold. No matter how hard obama and the Chicago-spirit pastoral matriarchy may try to hold their "Jericho" fortress, it shall be toppled, and all those who have upheld the soul matriarchy in America (either through indifference or through active opposition) shall continue to be judged harshly until the entire matriarchal system has collapsed.


[As a parenthesis, the 6th transit-of-Venus judgement period mentioned above went from May 14, 2007 to May 10, 2009. That period's starting date is less than 3 weeks before the end of the 2nd quarter of 2007, and its end date is less than 3 weeks before the end of the 2nd quarter of 2009. If you look at the Bureau of Economic Analysis's official statistics, you will see that the U.S. gross domestic product (GDP) ended the 2nd quarter of 2007 at US$14.0082 trillion, and at US$14.0345 trillion in the 2nd quarter of 2009. This means that, after 8 quarters, the U.S. GDP basically ended up where it had started, with nothing but a pathetic nominal growth of 0.19%. Even as the GDP soared upwards during the first half of that period, the Lord made sure to rein it back to its original position, as when a rebellious dog dashes forward, only to reach the end of its leash and be pulled back by its master to the place where it started from. Even as the American Church continues to believe that she is "moving forward", all she is doing is going around in circles, and with each full circle, she is only spiralling down towards eternal oblivion.


Even though some may find solace in the fact that the U.S. economy did "grow" during the 6th judgement period, the little nominal growth turns into a 2.9% decline if you account for inflation, and the decline is even worse if you consider the growth in the job population during that time. What makes the reality even grimmer is that, during that period, government expenditures and "investment" rose by 9.9%, whilst gross private domestic investment decreased by 34.3%. The consequence of this is that government expenditures went from being slightly higher than private investment at the start of the period to being almost double the value of private investment by the end of the period!]


The date 5 October 2010 was also obama's day #700 as "elected president" (with 5 November 2008 being day #1). This is no spiritual coincidence, for it points to how America chose to remain stuck at "7", halfway between "6" and "8", and it is out of that stagnant indifference that a beast arose to ravage America from the inside out. As we have shared before, this obamanable stagnation was manifested by the other winning numbers in Illinois' state lottery on obama's first day as "president-elect" ("779" and "7779").


Women at the summit, only for a season

The fact that the presidential seal fell as obama was speaking at the "Most Powerful Women Summit" has spiritual significance. Humanly speaking, it makes little sense that the people who organised this event would want obama to speak at an event exalting "powerful women", especially if you consider the tactics he used to defeat Hillary Clinton and win the 2008 Democrat party nomination. Hillary Clinton would be a "much better fit" for such an event, yet the organisers subconsciously chose obama because he represents the female soul's last-ditch effort to remain in control over America's spiritual atmosphere. obama's election was a great success in the spiritual "underworld". It was celebrated by satan and by millions of demons as a victory over God and His remnant. This is why satan inspired the people of Fortune Magazine to invite korah obama to speak at this event; it was satan's way of celebrating the sad fact that the "female" soul remains in control over America and the world. Yet, satan's victory is only for a season. Just like the seal, obama's (and satan's) reign shall crumble. The crumbling of the matriarchal reign will not come in this generation because of this generation's stupidity, but it shall come nonetheless.


We know who you are

When obama's ego felt injured by the seal's scandalous fall, it was quick to reply, "But you know who I am", as if to say, "No matter what the signs all around may insinuate about me, I am still great and mighty, and I am still 'the One'... and don't you forget it!!". The remnant-of-God's counter-reply is,

"We indeed know who you are. You are a cheap politician, a third-world demagogue, a liar, and a manipulator, a wolf in sheep's clothing who is so intoxicated with its own hubris that it can dare to shed its sheep covering and still expect everyone not to see him for what he is. You are a cheap con artist who disguises himself as a great statesman, a resentful destroyer who disguises himself as a selfless builder, a divider who disguises himself as a unifier. We indeed know who you are, babi obama, we indeed know who you are. And, to your dismay, the God of Israel knows who you definitely are not."


The nail that cannot sustain

Shortly after I learnt that obama's precious little seal had fallen off its lectern nail, the Lord placed this passage in my heart, and He made me understand that the seal incident was a manifestation in the literal of this prophetic word of the Spirit:


"15 Thus saith the Lord GOD of hosts, Go, get thee unto this treasurer, even unto Shebna, which is over the house, and say, 16 What hast thou here? and whom hast thou here, that thou hast hewed thee out a sepulchre here, as he that heweth him out a sepulchre on high, and that graveth an habitation for himself in a rock? 17 Behold, the LORD will carry thee away with a mighty captivity, and will surely cover thee. 18 He will surely violently turn and toss thee like a ball into a large country: there shalt thou die, and there the chariots of thy glory shall be the shame of thy lordís house. 19 And I will drive thee from thy station, and from thy state shall he pull thee down. 20 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will call my servant Eliakim the son of Hilkiah: 21 And I will clothe him with thy robe, and strengthen him with thy girdle, and I will commit thy government into his hand: and he shall be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and to the house of Judah. 22 And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open. 23 And I will fasten him as a nail in a sure place; and he shall be for a glorious throne to his fatherís house. 24 And they shall hang upon him all the glory of his fatherís house, the offspring and the issue, all vessels of small quantity, from the vessels of cups, even to all the vessels of flagons. 25 In that day, saith the LORD of hosts, shall the nail that is fastened in the sure place be removed, and be cut down, and fall; and the burden that was upon it shall be cut off: for the LORD hath spoken it." (Isaiah 22:15-25)


The nail on which you have hung your soul-hat cannot sustain your crown's dead weight for long, for it is not hammered with the hammer of truth, and it is not made with the steel of integrity. That is why God threw down your soul's seal as you uttered the words "We cannot sustain".
