Sinister is originally a Latin term for left or to the left (and by extension, left-handedness)… It is often used to mean evil.
I have written two posts previously that mentioned the symbolism of Barack Obama being left-handed. No offense is intended toward those readers who are themselves left-handed, or who have loved ones who are. If you are a frequent reader of this Blog, you will be aware that I focus much upon Parables; seeing significance in details and events. Yahweh speaks to His people through parables, and no detail is without significance. Yet we must be led of the Spirit to discern the meaning of the details, and they do not always represent the same thing for all people.
We often are given understanding of what specific details mean as we compare other facts associated with a person, action, event, or thing. There has been a wealth of sobering facts associated with the current President of the United States. It has been mentioned previously that the day the election returns came in and Barack Obama was announced as the next President of the United States, the winning numbers in the pick three lottery in his home state of Illinois came up as 6-6-6.
Following on the heels of Obama’s presidential victory was the announcement that the Secret Service had ordered a new, heavily armored, Cadillac for him to ride in. The Secret Service nicknamed this vehicle “The Beast.”
Obama Riding in The Beast
You may note the Factfile in the lower left hand corner reports that the length of this vehicle is 18 feet. That is 6+6+6 feet. (Even the name Barack Hussein Obama has 18 letters.) It is also noted on the above picture that bottles of the President’s blood are kept on board in case he needs an emergency transfusion. The Beast contains the blood of the President and it has night vision cameras so it can see clearly into the darkness. (These are symbolic details.)
The President’s promotion of abominations has led many to speak of America as becoming the Obama-Nation. I do not doubt that there is something signified in the sound of his name when it is attached to the word nation. The President wasted no time in making his support of homosexuality known, declaring June of 2009 as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month. The statement he released contained the following words:
LGBT Americans have made, and continue to make, great and lasting contributions that continue to strengthen the fabric of American society… I am proud to be the first President to appoint openly LGBT candidates to Senate-confirmed positions in the first 100 days of an Administration. These individuals embody the best qualities we seek in public servants… The LGBT rights movement has achieved great progress, but there is more work to be done. LGBT youth should feel safe to learn without the fear of harassment, and LGBT families and seniors should be allowed to live their lives with dignity and respect. My Administration has partnered with the LGBT community to advance a wide range of initiatives… NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim June 2009 as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month. I call upon the people of the United States to turn back discrimination and prejudice everywhere it exists.
Compare these words to that of the holy God of creation and the apostles of Christ.
You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.
If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltiness is upon them.
God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.
Just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities around them, since they in the same way as these indulged in gross immorality and went after strange flesh, are exhibited as an example, in undergoing the punishment of eternal fire. Yet in the same manner these men, also… defile the flesh…
Observing the manner in which Barack Obama has defied the judgment of God, calling an abomination a virtue, speaking of those who defile the flesh and indulge in gross immorality as manifesting “the best qualities we seek in public servants”; noting how he has declared that those who commit detestable acts have “strengthened the fabric of American society,” I am reminded of the words of the apostle Paul as he rebuked another man who sought to refute, overturn, and repudiate the words of the living God.
But Saul, who was also known as Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit, fixed his gaze upon him, and said, “You who are full of all deceit and fraud, you son of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, will you not cease to make crooked the straight ways of the Lord?”
Barack Obama has described the judgment of Yahweh as “prejudice and discrimination.” Truly he has set his throne above the throne of God. Do not all who disannul the judgment of Yahweh stand as usurpers and act in a sinister manner? It is appropriate that he used his left hand to sign this proclamation.
In the past couple days there have been a number of people who have forwarded to me an urgent letter that was sent out by Rick Joyner, the head of Morningstar Ministries. Mr. Joyner wrote to sound an alarm at the great evil he has perceived to be present in what is being touted as the “Health Care Reform Bill.” This bill was narrowly defeated this week, but it will not go away. It will remain in focus until it is passed. In reading what Rick Joyner had to say I was struck by the following comment he made.
THIS BILL IS THAT SINISTER.
This statement is the only one that is capitalized in the entire writing. It is a declaration of great force, and immediately I thought of the relation between the word “sinister” and left-handedness. I had just posted a blog a few days before titled The Left Hand of the Beast.
It contained the following:
The left hand signifies that which is sinister, evil, cunning, and diabolical…
The website Wikipedia relates the following information on societal associations to left-handedness.
In more technical contexts, ‘sinistral’ may be used in place of ‘left-handed’ and ‘sinistrality’ in place of ‘left-handedness’. Both of these technical terms derive from sinestra, a Latin word meaning ‘left’. Left hand shakes are a sign of disrespect. In Hebrew, as well as in other ancient Semitic and Mesopotamian languages, the term “hand” was a symbol of power or custody. The left hand symbolized the power to shame society, and was used as a metaphor for misfortune, natural evil, or punishment from the gods… Meanwhile, the English word sinister comes from the Latin word sinestra, which originally meant “left” but took on meanings of “evil” or “unlucky” by the Classical Latin era… The contemporary Italian word sinistra has both meanings of sinister and left. The Spanish siniestra has both, too, although the ‘left’ meaning is less common and is usually expressed by izquierda, a Basque word that made its way into Portuguese too. In Portuguese, the most common word for left-handed person, canhoto, was once used to identify the devil…
I will share a portion of that which Rick Joyner has written.
SPECIAL BULLETIN NATIONAL HEALTH SCARE
By Rick Joyner
When I read the brief on what was contained in the National Health Care bill that is now being presented before Congress, I could not believe I was reading something that was actually being considered in the United States of America. This is not about money or government mismanagement—this is about something far more diabolical than that. As incomprehensible as it may seem, this is about euthanasia, the power to determine who lives or dies in America. Hitler and Stalin would have loved to have had a means such as this for dispatching the millions they killed—it would have made their job much easier, and probably given them the ability to kill many more than they did. THIS BILL IS THAT SINISTER. This is not a joke—this is actually the nature of what is being proposed in the National Health Care legislation, and it is the obvious reason why the Obama Administration wants to ram it through Congress before anyone gets a chance to read it…
This bill is obviously designed to put the authority to determine who lives and dies in America into the hands of government bureaucrats. As outrageous as that seems, it is true—you can read it yourself. It even gives the government access to all of your accounts, and the authority to make withdrawals. I know this is hard to believe, but you can read it yourself…
It is beyond anything I thought I would ever see in my lifetime that such a bill could ever be seriously considered in the U.S. Congress. This bill has the potential for totalitarian control to be imposed on America to a degree that Hitler and Stalin could not have even imagined. With the technology available now, totalitarian control can very quickly be imposed to a degree far beyond what was attained by either the Nazis or the Communists, and this bill has provisions in it for just that. It mandates the sharing of all of your personal information, from just about every conceivable source, with the new health care bureaucracy being set up to implement this national health care system. The penalties for trying to escape this web are serious. This would actually make America into a national concentration camp, and we can be sure that ultimately it will be a national death camp. You do not have to take my word for it—read it for yourself. Below I will include a brief on this bill so that you can look it up, chapter and verse.
I am a pastor and a watchman, and I therefore have a mandate to watch out for the people, and to sound the alarm when I see a threat. I have never seen one like this before. Even so, I have prayed for restraint and calm as I address this, and do not want to exaggerate anything… However, with all due respect (and I mean this), what is coming out of the Obama Administration is evil, more evil than anything I thought I would ever see in America. It is time to call it what it is.
In the early 1990s, myself and a few other prophetic friends were all shown separately, but at the same general time, that the same evil that gained access to Germany in the 1930s was going to seek access to America. I have shared this often since then, and have made many trips to Germany to seek to understand what happened there. Col. Eugene Bird became one of my dearest friends, and I spent many days with him listening to what he had learned about this, which was considerable. Col. Bird was the U.S. Commandant of the Spandau Prison that held the Nazi war criminals, and ultimately became the one many considered to be the foremost authority on Nazi Germany. Bird’s insight into how evil can gain entry into the human soul and into governments was remarkable, but I always had trouble seeing a connection that would allow what happened there to actually happen in America. Bird often chastised me for this, warning that it could easily happen in America (Col. Bird lived most of his life in Germany, where he became loved and esteemed by that nation, but he remained a patriotic American to the end). Bird often explained how the evil spirit of death that took over Germany gained entry through its health care system. Now it is easy to see what he was talking about in what is being proposed by the Obama Administration.
In Germany, the National Socialists (Nazis) gradually desensitized the nation to death beginning with abortion. Then they quietly, seemingly with the most noble intentions, rounded up the retarded and insane, claiming that the state could take much better care of them, but no one ever saw or heard from them again. Then they did the same with the elderly. As word slipped out that they were being euthanized, it was explained that war made it necessary to eliminate all of the “useless eaters” so that the troops could be fed, as well as those who worked for the war machine. By that time, the grip of control was too strong for anyone to protest or they would also be sent to the camps. Life became cheaper and cheaper, people became more and more depraved, and millions were slaughtered in the death camps.
America is following a parallel course. If Hitler had a tool such as the health care bill that is being proposed by Congress, along with the technology of control now available, it would have made his task much easier and more effective, and probably resulted in many millions more having been easily murdered…
I realize that by writing with this tenor, I risk being considered an extremist, and maybe risk many relationships, but I cannot be concerned about that. With such an extreme evil threatening our country, I would have a difficult time standing before the Lord on that great judgment day if I did not speak up as boldly, as clearly, and as loudly as I can…
Last night on Fox News, a former Clinton Administration council to the President stated courageously that this bill was not just about money, it was about euthanasia. The money part does not make any sense at all, but now that the real evil that is driving this can be clearly seen, we can understand that the Administration really does not care about saving money or providing health care for everyone; rather it is about control. There is already talk about this being about saving money by being able to euthanize the baby boomers so they will not have to be paid social security, or weigh down the health care system with their needs. I’m not ready to go that far, but that is obviously why the Florida congressman declared that this bill was a death sentence for the elderly. That is true.
The only commandment with a promise that it will go well with us, and that we may live long, is the commandment to honor our fathers and mothers. This commandment is found in both the Old and New Testaments (see Ephesians 6:2-3). Killing them when they can no longer be productive, as Hitler and Stalin resolved to do, is the most dishonorable thing we could ever do, and we can be sure will bring the opposite to the blessing promised. As you read the bill, and see how excessively long they stay on the point of being able to determine what and if any care is given to the elderly, you will see it really is chilling. It is obvious this is a primary purpose of those who wrote this bill. I know this sounds far-fetched, and I would not have believed it myself a few days ago, but just read it for yourself.
Although I differ with Rick Joyner greatly on many things, including his advice to lean upon the arm of the flesh to turn back this evil legislation, I find agreement with his characterization of what is set forth here as being sinister and diabolical.
It is not coincidence that the government has hyped the flu pandemic so widely since Obama has been in office. It is not coincidence that his major work thus far has been to enlarge the role of government in the health sector. There is a diabolical cunning of great intelligence being observed here. In the name of health care and the national good, an entire nation of people will be reduced to slavery. They will soon look back and wonder how this occurred, and too late they will understand that they placed the power over their lives into the hands of leaders that did not care for them.
You may ask why I disagree with the advice to seek a political means of overturning this legislation. It is because the Spirit is testifying that judgment has been determined for America. It will not relent. The nation, and particularly the church in it, have been called to repent and they have not wanted to repent. The judgment will not now be turned back. Yahweh has testified that this is so, even when Miss USA fell the past two years in a row at the Miss Universe Pageant.
In 2007 and 2008 Miss USA fell on the world stage. The repetition of this sign serves the same purpose as Pharaoh’s dreams that were repeated.
Now as for the repeating of the dream to Pharaoh twice, it means that the matter is determined by God, and God will quickly bring it about.
The matter is determined, and it will quickly come to pass. America will fall. She has been given into the hands of evil men who are skilled in destruction, even men that her citizens elected to rule over them.
And I shall pour out My indignation on you; I shall blow on you with the fire of My wrath, and I shall give you into the hand of brutal men, skilled in destruction.
The matter has already been determined by God. Yahweh has spoken by signs, dreams and through many prophets. These things are coming swiftly. The nation that has known great liberty will be enslaved. Her freedoms will be taken away and the legislation to accomplish the captivity of the people has already been written.
I have shared in recent months that Yahweh has been directing many people to make preparations to flee, and to endure a wilderness experience. Just yesterday I was invited by an elderly Christian brother in his 80s to go with him to look at a small motorhome that was for sale. He ended up purchasing it, and I have no doubt that it was the Spirit of the Lord that inspired him to do so.
The hour is late and all the people of God need to be seeking to know the mind of the Father. They need to hear and obey. Through all that is coming Yahweh will raise up a people who will stand to the praise of His glory. Many will be purged, purified and refined. The days will be fiery and full of trials, but they will accomplish the desire of the Father.
May you be blessed with peace and understanding in these days.
