What is it with Obama and flying insects?
During the 2008 campaign, an LA Times reporter assigned to follow Obama described the following creepy scene on a campaign stop one hot summer afternoon in Iowa:
“Obama was flipping burgers at a backyard barbecue, in what the campaign hoped would be an exquisite photo opportunity. A fly began circling his head. Then more flies. Pretty soon flies were swarming him, the burgers — everything. It was awful to watch. But in rhythmic fashion he began waving them off with his hand.”
Then on June 16, 2009, while Obama was being interviewed in the White House, a fly kept buzzing around his head. Without a moment’s hesitation, Obama killed the fly with his hand.
Obama, the Lord of the Flies.
Did you know that “Lord of the Flies” is the literal meaning of the Greek word (βεελζεβούβ) for Beelzebub?
So who is Beelzebub? Beelzebub — derived from Ba‘al Zebûb, a Semitic deity worshipped in the Philistine city of Ekron — is the name of one of the seven princes of Hell. Beelzebub was used by the later Christians as a term for Satan.
“And the Amorites, which dwelt in that mountain, came out against you, and chased you, as bees do, and destroyed you in Seir, even unto Hormah.” -Deuteronomy 1:44
The Book of Deuteronomy is the last of the five books that make up the Pentateuch, believed to be the recording of the words of God given to Moses. Deuteronomy consists of 34 chapters and is in the form of a series of sermons delivered by Moses to the Israelites in the plains of Moab before their entry into the Promised Land.
How should Deuteronomy 1:44 be understood? Well, let’s look at the context of that passage. Here’s the passage that precedes 1:44, of Moses chastising the rebellious Israelites:
“So I spake unto you; and ye would not hear, but rebelled against the commandment of the LORD, and went presumptuously up into the hill.” -Deuteronomy 1:43
Here’s the passage that folows 1:44:
“And ye returned and wept before the LORD; but the LORD would not hearken to your voice, nor give ear unto you.” – Deuteronomy 1:45
Here’s Matthew Henry’s Commentary on Deu 1:44:
“An unbelieving heart was at the bottom of all this. All disobedience to God’s laws, and distrust of his power and goodness, flow from disbelief of his word….”
The signs cannot be more clear. May God have mercy on America.
