I am posting the following article because I thought some of you would find it interesting and to give you a chance to sharpen your rebuttal swords. I do not agree with everything in the article.
My email lit up with the European Union's appointment of the first official EU president. It's as if the man given the job came on the scene with "666" stamped upon his forehead. One such email serves as a particularly interesting example of the declarations that Antichrist has arrived. Here are some excerpts:
...As you are more than likely aware, the Antichrist has arisen from a little-known position of Belgium Prime Minister (and from a position of almost total obscurity) to be appointed as the new president of the European Union. Herman Van Rompuy is the newly appointed EU president and will assume that role as from 01st of December 2010...
Van Rompuy is a Bilderberger and attended one of their meetings before his appointment, where he met and was instructed by Henry Kissinger. Don’t be fooled by his quirky looks, as it seems to have been Satan’s deliberate intention for his son/representative here on the earth to have the appearance of a harmless old man. But we all know what he is, and what he is going to be capable of. With all due respect, it would now seem that because the Antichrist has now been revealed and appointed, the possibility of the pre-tribulation theory of the rapture as being correct is looking more and more remote. There may be some hope for the pre-tribulation theory of the rapture... as being correct but I am extremely doubtful...[If the Antichrist has come forth] then after having received his crown he will start WW [III] by attacking the U.S.
The U.S. and her citizens should really begin to prepare now for a time not too far away when the missiles of the Antichrist begin to [rain] down over your cities. See Revelation Chapter 18 describing the destruction of the U.S. That may be the reason your personal liberties are being deliberately eroded, so from out of the chaos that is sure to [be] a result of this assault, some semblance of order may be maintained...
Wild-eyed supposition abounds, and I guess surrounding issues and events feed the anxieties. One such peripheral matter certainly infuses the mix of such preposterous postulation with fuel for the fires of fear. It seems that President Barack Obama has decided, after all, that he will travel to Copenhagen to attend the UN Global Warming Summit on December 9. He will, the word is, push negotiations for a comprehensive climate accord one day before he accepts his Nobel Peace Prize at Oslo, Norway. Fear of many among Bible prophecy watchers--and even secularist world watchers like Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and others--is that the upcoming Copenhagen meetings and others like them represent the global elitists' attempts to establish world government. The beast--Antichrist--and his false prophet will come out of a one-world order, according to the thirteenth chapter of Revelation. Development of the global warming crisis and the cry for global governance to make all nations of the world give up much of their sovereignty is front and center in current news headlines. So, it is not too far-fetched to see from whence the somewhat over-the-top declarations such as the one above comes.
Add to this the deceptive, conspiratorial nature of the globalists' contrived planetary warming rants, and it becomes more understandable that the warning systems of many are super sensitive when contemplating things to come. That much of what we've been told about the planet's heating up to dangerous levels, and the carnage that will spin off from such a catastrophe, is a hoax came to light this past week.
LONDON--A leading climate change scientist whose private e-mails are included in thousands of documents that were stolen by hackers and posted online said Sunday the leaks may have been aimed at undermining next month's global climate summit in Denmark... ("Scientists: Leak of Climate E-mails Appalling," AP, Newsmax.com, 11/23/09).
The emails of some of the leading scientist proponents of global warming were bared for all to see and study. Rather than put the spotlight of investigation on the conspirators, mainstream news media were corporately angry at the hacker who exposed the global warming hoax.
The ramifications of the revelations could yet be devastating to the attempts to tax all "guilty" nations in the supposed Co2 emissions footprint indictments. Such accusations and indictments are suspected as looming during the Copenhagen summit.
When you read some of those files–including 1079 emails and 72 documents–you realize just why the [buffoons] at CRU might have preferred to keep them confidential. As Andrew Bolt puts it, this scandal could well be “the greatest in modern science.
