    Overall, very good update on what has been a momentous first two weeks of 2017 in terms of Biblical prophecy. I must say, however, JD’s lack of clarity regarding his comments about how Obama supposedly will become (future tense, after he leaves office I inferred) the chair of the UN Security Council created quite a bit of confusion for me. Maybe someone else has some insight and better understanding to help clarify.

    In doing some quick research online, I found a reference to Obama previously having stepped in to head the Security Council while he was President once back in 2009 and again in 2014. However, I am totally lost on what JD is talking about as far as Obama having a future position as the Chair of the UN Security Council. He gave very little support or clarification for the basis of that claim. Maybe the problem is with me and I am just not understanding what JD is saying. I cannot find anything online that references an upcoming, future role for Obama as the UN Security Council Chair.

    Can anybody help me out here?

    John 14:1-3 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also."

    OK. I could be wrong here. Certainly would not be the first time. However, I just checked the UN Security 2017 Presidency schedule on what I believe to be the UN website. It shows, as one would expect it to, a monthly rotational schedule for this coming year. The US gets its turn in April.

    Month Presidency
    January Sweden
    February Ukraine
    March United Kingdom
    April United States
    May Uruguay
    June Bolivia
    July China
    August Egypt
    September Ethiopia
    October France
    November Italy
    December Japan

    That being the case, how would it even be possible for one man to head the UN Security Council for more than a month at a time? It appears to me, it would not. I also found and listened to the relevant part of the message that JD referred to as his source on this. (Ken Ortize/Calvary Spokane 1/11/17: Here is the link if you are interested, with the relevant stuff starting around the 59-minute mark. http://www.calvaryspokane.com/teaching/whats-the-world-coming-to-part-2-pre-tribulation-events/?v=e2ae933451f4)

    It made as little sense to me hearing it from Ken as it did when I heard JD say it. Again, I could be wrong, but I think this is one where JD either did not do his homework and just repeated something from someone else who did not do his homework, or perhaps this is an older message that just shows a more recent publication date of 1/11/17, thereby possibly creating some confusion around the timing of the content. I remain open to correction, but as best I can tell, there are no plans for Obama to hold the position of the UN Security Council Presidency IF he leaves office next week.

    Just my thoughts. Sorry, but when I hear something that sounds like a note that is out of key, the Lord has wired me to investigate. :unsure:

    John 14:1-3 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also."

    I respect Pastor JD but it seems he is buying into the Obama is the antichrist rhetoric.

    You are right, the UN Security Council presidency is a MONTHLY rotating position. Secondly, if he meant President of the UN General Assembly that job belongs to Peter Thomson until September 2017. Even then it is against the UN Charter for anyone from a country that holds a permanent position on the UN Security Council (US is one) to be president.

    Perhaps that’s what he was talking about – but – the elections for September 2017 haven’t been held and the term is only one year.

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/President_of_the_United_Nations_General_Assembly

    The UN Attorney General is Guterres and he just got elected and that is a 5 year term.

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secretary-General_of_the_United_Nations

    Like I said, I respect JD but it sounds like he is buying into some theories based on the “Obama is the Antichrist” crowd.

    I mean, what is the proof? The lottery came up 666 (in Chicago) when he was elected? That’s it? That’s how Lord would communicate to the world that this man is the antichrist?

    The antichrist won’t be revealed until we are gone. Trying to fit bible prophecy around the misfit in the White House is a terrible way to approach it. :rose:

    This was the worst update I’ve heard yet. He was talking about O chairing the UNSC, which happened back in 2014. That’s easy enough to find on the internet.

    People need to get it through their heads that O is leaving office. He’s not staying. There won’t be martial law. He’s not going to stop the inauguration so he can stay in for a 3rd term.

    Honestly, this is just getting so ridiculous. :wacko: Yes, he is making things harder for Trump regarding Israel. This shouldn’t come as a shocker. The AC isn’t going to be someone who hates Israel, at least not at first. The AC is going to be someone who works with and for Israel and elevates them to a high position among the nations… which will all come crashing down at the midpoint.

    Argh.

    Romans1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. 17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

    Man is MAN.
    God is GOD.
    Man is fallible.
    God is infallible.
    (Man makes mistakes.)
    (God does not make mistakes.)
    We do not follow man.
    We follow GOD.

    Whew! Just needed to get that off my chest!!
