For the past several years, I have felt that the United States would get a Democrat as its president in the 2008 elections, who, I have suspected, will probably gain re-election in 2012. Those are basically some speculations on my part.
Wikipedia reports this about the Democratic candidate presidential Barack Obama:
Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. … is the junior United States Senator from Illinois and a candidate for the Democratic Party’s nomination in the 2008 U.S. presidential election. He married in 1992 and has two daughters. Obama has written two books: a memoir of his youth titled Dreams from My Father, and The Audacity of Hope, a personal commentary on U.S. politics.
Born to a Kenyan father and an American mother, he passed most of his childhood and adolescent years in Honolulu, Hawaii. At age six, he moved to Jakarta where he lived with his mother and Indonesian stepfather for four years.
Thus, one born of a Kenyan father who lived in Indonesia might become the president of the United States. Perhaps I should mention that I do not plan to discuss his politics, to any major degree, at this webpage.
However, as I do believe that without massive repentance, the United States is doomed for destruction sometime after 2012, I found the following report (which could have been made up) of interest:
February 13, 2008
Prophet Of Barack Obama Warns Of Catastrophic US Destruction
By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers
Reports from the United States today are trumpeting the primary election victories of US Senator Barack Obama…
However, not to Senator Obama should these American people be looking for their greatest insight into this man, and their future, but rather their attention should be placed upon last centuries great Kenyan Prophet, Johanwa Owalo, the founder of Kenya’s Nomiya Luo Church, and who among the Kenya people of the Luo religion is believed to be a prophet similar to Jesus Christ and Muhammad, and who in 1912 made this horrific prophecy about the United States:
“So far have they [the United States] strayed into wickedness in those [future] times that their destruction has been sealed by my [father]. Their great cities will burn, their crops and cattle will suffer disease and death, their children will perish from diseases never seen upon this Earth, and I reveal to you the greatest [mystery] of all as I have been allowed to see that their [the United States] destruction will come about through the vengeful hands of one of our very own sons.”

Now, I have searched the net and NOT been able to find the actual text (Visions of the Great Nyasaye) cited in the article above, hence it could all be made up. But if not, it is certainly an interesting possible prophecy about Obama.
(UPDATE 8/23/08: Today I went to the official Barack Obama website and clicked on the link that brought me to his “Fight the Smears” page. I had hoped that if this “prophecy” related to Barack Obama was an internet hoax, that by now the Obama campaign would have tried to deal with it. Since this item is not one of the many that the page attempts to dispel, I have concluded that either this “prophecy” was written many decades ago or it is simply not enough of an issue for the Obama campaign to involve itself with. I will be happy to place an update to this article if it is shown that there is not an old prophecy in Kenya regarding a “son of Kenya” being associated with the destruction of the United States.)
Of course, it is absolutely true that Barack Obama is the son of a Kenyan. Here is what the official Barack Obama website reported:
Barack Obama was born in Hawaii on August 4th, 1961. His father, Barack Obama Sr., was born and raised in a small village in Kenya, where he grew up herding goats with his own father, who was a domestic servant to the British…Barack’s father eventually returned to Kenya, and Barack grew up with his mother in Hawaii, and for a few years in Indonesia. Later, he moved to New York, where he graduated from Columbia University in 1983.)
The article by Sorcha Faal continued with:
To the greatest accuracy of the Kenyan Prophet Johanwa Owalo’s words we must note the striking coincidence that this nearly 100-year-old prophecy seemingly echoes into our troubled times, Senator Obama does appear to be the fulfillment of this prophecy as he is, indeed, a ‘son’ of the Kenyan Luo tribal religion (a mixture of Christianity and African tribal beliefs) as he was born on August 4, 1961 in Honolulu, Hawaii to Barack Obama, Sr. (born in Nyanza Province, Kenya, of Luo ethnicity) and Stanley Ann Dunham (who was given her fathers first name).
Even more interesting, perhaps, is that this son of the Kenyan Luo peoples, Barack Obama, is seeking to become the leader of the United States at the exact same time that the Nation of his father is in crisis due to the flawed, and as some say ‘stolen’, election which has plunged the Kenyan people into tribal warfare which has claimed over 1,000 lives, and which many of the of the Luo’s believe is ushering in the times predicted by their Prophet Johanwa Owalo…
But whether that specific “prophecy” is real or not, the truth is that I will speculate that if Barack Obama is President of the United States after 2012, that it is certainly possible that the destruction (including invasion by the rising European Beast power) will happen in the 2013-2017 time frame.
But again, I also feel the same if Hillary Clinton or John McCain are in office then. (Hillary Clinton, though, is in a special category–for information on that, please see Might Hillary Clinton Partially Fulfill Bible Prophecy?) (Update 8/30/08: as John McCain selected a woman to be his vice president, the following news item might be of interest Might Sarah Palin Fulfill Prophecy?)
(Additional update 8/30/08 is an article titled Barack Obama is Not the Antichrist.)
However, the so-called “Obama prophecy” was interesting to me–even though I still suspect that someone could have made it up.
Whether it is real or not, the following scripture, clearly is:
The alien who is among you shall rise higher and higher above you, and you shall come down lower and lower (Deuteronomy 28:43).
Although an American, as an African-American that lived in Indonesia, Barack Obama would certainly seem to biblically qualify as an alien (as of course, do all the illegal aliens in the United States–though Barack Obama’s legal status is not a question for me). If he becomes president of the United States then perhaps there are many “Obama prophecies” that he will fulfill as the above verse could possibly be discussing Barack Obama in prophecy. But I want to be clear that I do not believe that there is any Barack Obama antichrist prophecy as Barack Obama cannot be the final antichrist (for details, see Barack Obama is Not the Antichrist).
I believe we are certainly getting close to the time of Jacob’s trouble (Jeremiah 30:7)–and it is probable that Barack Obama and/or Hillary Clinton (they possibly could team up somehow–including with cabinet positions) will have a role in fulfilling biblical prophecies.

End of Mayan Calendar 2012–Might 2012 Mean Something? There is a Mayan calendar prediction for change in 2012. 2012 changes were also centuries ago predicted by the Hopi Native Americans and the Hindu Indians (who were not even on the same continent). Do these Mayan/Hindu/Hopi prophecies have any value? Why might Satan have inspired this date? Does the Dresden codex show destruction of the earth by flood? Can the great tribulation start before 2012?
