Brilliantly funny and…an honest testimony to the saving grace of Jesus Christ. President Obama hears the true gospel from a real Christ follower, maybe for the first time. This from Eric Metaxas, the keynote speaker at the National Prayer Breakfast Feb. 2, 2012.

Obama and Michelle appear uncomfortable as the beautiful gospel of Jesus Christ so lovingly wafts across the room. Eric was truly anointed in this moment. He confronts the issues of abortion and gay marriage without even saying the words.

The joy and love pouring out of Eric Metaxas’ soul are irresistible. It’s the Holy Spirit.

Obama’s speech following Eric’s is a sharp contrast in genuine verses artifice. Obama twists Scripture to fit his Marxist agenda using, “…to whom much is given, much is required” to infer that Jesus was a Marxist. If Jesus was a Marxist, why do communist countries kill Christians and forbid the Bible?    Marx preaches the abolition of private property.  The Bible encourages private property ownership and forbids “coveting”  of your neighbor’s house or wife.  The Bible does not tell the government to steal wages away from workers and distribute them to whomever it chooses. Obama is in big trouble with God.  It is forbidden to alter the Word of God.

I met Eric Metaxas in Los Angeles back when he was doing a tour for his book Amazing Grace. I thought he should host his own talk show so I got my agent to get us into a Jay Leno taping. I’m so honored that I got to cross paths with someone as courageous and faithful to Jesus as Eric.  He also crushes the nerdy, irrelevant, uneducated stereotype of a “born-again evangelical.”   Metaxas is cool.

Obama sang Al Green beautifully.  (He should be a singer not a president.)  Romney sang “America the Beautiful”.  Metaxas led his audience in “Amazing Grace.”

In this crucial moment of America’s history, I pray God will raise up many Bonhoeffers and Metaxas’s to lead us in humility, repentance and obedience to God.

Watch the most powerful speech of our time from Metaxas. (It starts at 35 min into the video)

    Like Jehovah’s Witnesses, Muslims don’t accept the wonderful Christian Gospel.

    Today Marks the Birth of Ronald Reagan. I miss the great communicator. We could certainly use him now. In 1984 Prayer Breakfast he stated: Without God, there is no virtue, because there’s no prompting of conscience. Without God, we’re mired in the material, that flat world that tells us only what senses percieve. Without God, there is a coarsening of the society. And without God, democracy will not and cannot long endure. If we ever forget that we’re one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under. Well, God Bless You President Reagan, we surely Miss You.

      Excellent Ltjg! Yes, President Reagan spoke those immortal words of Truth and Hope to the heart of the Nation…..and I speak them myself many times even now in our great crises as a country. It’s such stark contrast to this evil empire we have now and words from an evil ruler. Remember, “If we ever forget we are one nation under God,then we will be a nation gone under.”

  • Ltjg

    Yes Bree, I know I’ll never forget. The problem now is to Pick the Candidate that comes as close as possible to Reagan. It is difficult. Many people are torn. At this moment, I’ll have to lean towards Newt. God Help Us All.

    Obama keeps on saying he is a christian. To be a christian is it not necessary to have been baptized into a christian religion. As far as I know, every christian church in the U.S. issues a baptismal cerificate upon being baptized and I wonder where Obama’s certificate is? Whoops. I bet I opened a can of worms and Obama’s boys are in Hawaii right now forging one.

    Revelation 22:18-19
     18For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
     19And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

    Luke 10:18And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.
    In ancient Hebrew the word for lightning is barack, the word for heaven or the
    heights is bama and to connect the words either an “a” or an “o” is used.

    2 Thessalonians 2:3 (King James Version)
    3Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

    Political Correctness a term first seen in Mao’s Little Red Book, a communist engendered abomination that is instituting censorship little by little.

    “If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.”- George Washington

    Carl Marx, once wrote that, the goal of the Communists was to quote,. “enter into men’s minds and cast God down from his throne.”

    Matthew 12:31Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.

     

    In ancient Babylon their economy was based on usury.
    “If you lend money to one of my people among you who is needy, do not be like a moneylender; charge him no interest. Exodus 22:25
    Hath given forth upon usury, and hath taken increase: shall he then live? he shall not live: he hath done all these abominations; he shall surely die; his blood shall be upon him. Ezekiel 18:13
    Usury is unlawful; expressly prohibited by GOD!
     Article 1 Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution clearly states that only the Congress can print and coin money! 

    The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 was slipped thru congress during the Christmas break with the majority of it’s members absent. 

    The Federal Reserve is self serving and privately owned in violation to the Constitution, charging interest on illegally printed money. Money printed from nothing!
    In America On June 4, 1963, a virtually unknown Presidential decree, Executive Order 11110, was signed with the authority to basically strip the Federal Reserve Bank of its power to loan money to the United States Federal Government at interest. With the stroke of a pen, President Kennedy declared that the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank would soon be out of business. Five months later A UNITED STATES PRESIDENT, PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY was MURDERED BY COMMUNIST!
    “If you lend money to one of my people among you who is needy, do not be like a moneylender; charge him no interest. Exodus 22:25
    Hath given forth upon usury, and hath taken increase: shall he then live? he shall not live: he hath done all these abominations; he shall surely die; his blood shall be upon him. Ezekiel 18:13
    Usury is unlawful; expressly prohibited by GOD!
     
     
    In ancient Babylon their priest sacrificed babies to their gods baal, and molech.  
    In America the communist under their socialist programs have sacrificed over 50 million American babies to their god satan!
    Leviticus 20:2-5
    2Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel , Whosoever he be of the children of Israel , or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel , that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones.
    3And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name.
    4And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the man, when he giveth of his seed unto Molech, and kill him not:
    5Then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit whoredom with Molech, from among their people.
     
    Luke 22:35-36 Then Jesus asked them, “When I sent you without purse, bag or sandals, did you lack anything?” “Nothing,” they answered. 36 He said to them, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.
     
     
    Jeremiah 50:16Cut off the sower from Babylon, and him that handleth the SICKLE in the time of harvest: for fear of the oppressing sword they shall turn every one to his people, and they shall flee every one to his own land.
    Jeremiah 50:23How is the HAMMER OF THE WHOLE EARTH CUT ASUNDER AND BROKEN! how is Babylon become a desolation among the nations!
    BABYLON = the HAMMER and SICKLE!
     
     
    Jeremiah 50:14 “ Put yourselves in array against Babylon all around, All you who bend the bow; Shoot at her, spare no arrows, For she has sinned against the LORD.

    All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD will I destroy them. Psalm 118:10

    “The thing that separates the American Christian from every other person on earth is the fact that he would rather die on his feet, than live on his knees!”. George Washington

      2 Timothy 2:15   Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 

    Jeremiah 48: 10Cursed be he that doeth the work of the LORD deceitfully, and cursed be he that keepeth back his sword from blood.

    Revelation 18:21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying , Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down , and shall be found no more at all.

    “NO KING BUT KING JESUS!”

  • Patrick Duffy

    Yes, Obama has made himself an “enemy of God” because he has befriended the world. He dispises the word of God which says, “YOU SHALT NOT STEAL”. This law applies to GOVERNMENT as well as men.

    • TOM STEWART

      Right-On Patrick Duffy Also Right Out Of His Own Book “Audacity Of Hope”: “I Will Stand With The Muslims Should The Political Winds Shift In An Ugly Direction”.Yikeess, It Is Getting Closer. God Bless America And Newt Gingrich POTUS.

  • Rachel

    Great and heartfelt speech. I hope it permeated the hearts of many sitting at that podium…but I doubt it.

  • W Smith

    Wow!
    Happy Birthday President Reagan. I know you enjoyed the voice of Jackie Evancho and the eloquence of Eric Metaxas’ as did I. If only you had been seated with the panel and spoken. If only.
