As the US elections are so close, I thought this might be appropriate. I saw it on one of my favourite forums. Thanks Marlene.
An old German woman’s perspective on Obama.
In Germany, when Hitler came to power, it was a time of terrible financial depression. Money was worth nothing. In Germany people lost homes and jobs, just like in the American Depression in the 1930s, which we have
read about in Thoene’s Shiloh books.
In those days, in my homeland, Adolph Hitler was elected to
power by promising “Change” He blamed the “Zionists” around the world for all
our problems. He told everyone it was greedy Zionist Bankers who had caused
every problem we had. He promised when he was leader, the greedy Zionist bankers would be punished. The Zionists, he promised, would be wiped off the face of the earth. So Hitler was elected to power by only 1/3 the popular vote. A coalition of other political parties in parliament made him supreme leader. Then, when he was leader, he disgraced and expelled everyone in parliament who did not go along with him. Yes. Change came to my homeland as the new leader promised it would.
The teachers in German schools began to teach the children to sing songs
in praise of Hitler. This was the beginning of the Hitler Youth movement. It
began with praise of the Fuhrer’s programs on the lips of innocent children.
Hymns in praise of Hitler and his programs were being sung in the school rooms
and in the play yard. Little girls and boys joined hands and sang these songs as
they walked home from school. My brother came home and told Papa what was
happening at school. The political hymns of children proclaimed Change was
coming to our homeland and the Fuhrer was a leader we could trust. I will never
forget my father’s face. Grief and fear. He knew that the best propaganda of the
Nazis was song on the lips of little children. That evening before he said
grace at the dinner table, he placed his hands upon the heads of my brothers and
me and prayed the Living Word upon us from Jeremiah 1:4-5.
‘Now the Word of the Lord came to me, saying,
“Before I formed you in the
womb I knew you,
and before you were born
I consecrated you;
I appointed you a prophet to
Soon the children’s songs praising the Fuhrer were heard
everywhere on the streets and over the radio. “With our Fuhrer to lead us, we
can do it! We can change the world!” Soon after that, Papa, a pastor, was turned
away from visiting elderly parishioners in hospitals. The people he had come to
bring comfort of God’s Word, were “no longer there.” Where had they vanished to
while under nationalized health care? It became an open secret. The elderly and
sick began to disappear from hospitals feet first as “mercy killing” became the
policy. Children with disabilities and those who had Down syndrome were
euthanized. People whispered, “Maybe it is better for them now. Put them out of
misery. They are no longer suffering. And, of course, their death is better for
the treasury of our nation. Our taxes no longer must be spent to care for such a
burden.” And so murder was called mercy.
The government took over private business. Industry and
health care were “nationalized.” (NA-ZI means National Socialist Party) The
businesses of all Jews were seized. (Perhaps you remember our story in Berlin on
Krystalnacht in the book Munich Signature)
The world and God’s word were turned upside down. Hitler
promised the people economic Change? Not change. It was, rather, Lucifer’s very
ancient Delusion leading to Destruction. What began with the propaganda of
children singing a catchy tune ended in the deaths of millions of children. The
reality of what came upon us is so horrible that you in this present generation
cannot imagine it. Our suffering is too great to ever tell in a book or show in
a black and white news reel.
When I spoke to Bodie about some of these things,
she wept and said she could not bear to write them. Perhaps one day she will,
but I asked her, “who could bear to read our suffering?” Yet with my last
breaths I warn every Christian and Jew now in the name of the Lord, Unless your
course of the church in America is spiritually changed now, returning to the
Lord, there are new horrors yet to come.
I trembled last night when I heard the voices of American
children raised in song, praising the name of Obama, the charismatic fellow who
claims he is the American Messiah. Yet I have heard what this man Obama says
about abortion and the “mercy killing” of tiny babies who are not wanted.
There are so few of us left to warn you. I have heard that
there are 69 million Catholics in America and 70 million Evangelical Christians.
Where are your voices? Where is your outrage? Where is passion and your vote?
Do you vote based on an abortionist’s empty promises and economics? Or do you
vote according to the Bible? Thus says the Lord about every living child still
in the womb.
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you
were born I consecrated you.”
I have experienced the signs of the politics of Death in my
youth. I see them again now. Christians! Unless you stand up now, you will lose
your freedom of religion. In America priests and preachers have already lost
their freedom to speak openly from their pulpits of moral danger in political
candidates. They cannot legally instruct you of which candidate holds fast to
the precepts of scripture! American law forbids this freedom of speech to
conservative pastors or they will lose their “tax exempt” status. And yet I
have heard the words of Obama’s pastor Damning America! I have heard the words of Obama damning and mocking all of you in small towns because you “Cling to your religion.” But I am a woman whose name is unknown. My life is recorded as a work of fiction. I have no fear of reprisal when I speak truth to you from the pages of a book. (Though the Zion Covenant books are mocked and condemned by the Left in America.) I am an old woman and will soon go to be with my Lord. I have no fear for myself, but for all of you and for your children, I tremble. I tremble at the hymns to a political leader which your children will sing at school. (Though even now a hymn or a prayer to God and our Lord Jesus is against the law in public school!)
Your vote must put a stop to what will come upon America if Barrack Obama is elected. I pray you will personally heed this warning for the sake of your children and your grandchildren. Do not be deceived. The Lord in Jeremiah 1:7-8 commands every believer to speak up!
“Do not say, ‘I am only a youth,’ for to all whom I send
you, you shall go, and whatever I command you, you shall speak. Do not be afraid of them for I am with you, declares the Lord!”
I am in Prayer for you, and for the Church!
Spoken to you in the authority of Jesus the Christ,
the Name Above All Names.
Update: Mon 24/11/08
I’m quite surprised at how many comments this post has generated. Unfortuately I haven’t had a chance to do any blogging recently, though I do keep an eye on comments via RSS. The main bone of contention I’ve seen in here is some people don’t like seeing their new ‘god’ being compared to Hitler. Nobody has said Obama is Hitler, just that there are some very unsettling similarities in the methods used by Obama. One can certainly expect Lori Kalner to be very unsettled by what she sees happening, as any one would who lived through the terrible Nazi years.
As for whether Lori is a real person, I’ve done research on the net and concluded she’s quite real, and no I don’t intend to enumerate everything. Most of my readers are intelligent people who are quite capable of using search engines and research tools, coming to their own conclusions if they’re undecided about it, while those who’ve already made up their minds will not bother. I know Snopes says some of her stuff is supposedly a hoax, but I’m not putting too much faith in that since they started leaning strongly to the left.
I could go into a lot more about this but don’t have the time right now. I just thought I should post at least something so it wouldn’t appear I’m totally ignoring this.
