not born in a manger

        the planet Krypton

“Contrary to popular belief, I was not born in a manger, I was born on Krpyton and was sent by my father Jor-El to save planet earth”.  

 I was reminded today of these arrogant words spoken so blithely by our President some months ago at a press conference dinner at a time when he was basking in the limelight of favor and success by those who viewed him as the Messiah of hope and change.  But, that was then, this is now – today, according to a recent poll, the President has slipped to a record low of 42%.   For numbers to be this low, its obvious that the President has lost the support of not only the swing voters, who helped put him in office, but, within his own constituency.  From a Wall Street Journal article sent to me today by friend and researcher Sue Bradley of Inklings of Other Worlds  titled, “From Audacity to Animosity” –

Mr. Obama’s problem is not only with the left of his party. Democratic professionals, people who do the work of politics day by day, don’t see him as a bad man or a sellout, but they scratch their heads over him and privately grouse. They don’t understand a Democratic president who, in the midst of a great recession, in our modern welfare state, doesn’t know how to win support! The other night Pennsylvania’s Democratic governor, Ed Rendell, was on “Hardball” sounding reasonable on the subject of Mr. Obama, but I thought his eyes, his visage, his professionally pleasant face were screaming: Those crazy birthers are wrong, he’s not from another countryhe’s from another galaxy! He doesn’t do politics like any normal person!

He’s got that right!  Somehow this man is different.  Something about him has left everyone scratching their heads.  How could someone who had so much supposed promise, turn out to be such a dismal failure?   Yet, in spite of his abysmally low numbers at home, his world-wide popularity remains at a staggering 61% – a full twenty points ahead of any other world leader!  Incredible!

And, maybe that’s just the point.  Perhaps, success within American politics never was the goal.  With 2012 on the horizon, I have an idea that 2011 is going to be an interesting year.  I find it rather doubtful that a man with so much world wide appeal and so much ego will let anything like American politics stand in the way of his larger success. 

It is also interesting as we approach the end of the year that a lunar eclipse will take place  on the shortest day and the longest night of the year – the winter solstice – a full two years in advance of the widely hyped and greatly feared December 21 of 2012.  Winter solstice; ancient in origin and observed in one way or another by just about every pagan culture.  Will this heavenly sign (the lunar eclipse) be any indication of what we can expect in the year to come?

 In just a few short days, this year will be history.  What began with so much tumult (earthquakes, volcanos, and other disasters) is so far coming quietly to a close.  I have the distinct feeling that before the last few lyrics of Auld Lang Syne can be sung, we will know without a doubt that 2011 is going to be a very different kind of a year. 

There is a baby who was born in a manger and Barack Obama is right, it was not him.  Jesus Christ, King of Kings and Lord of Lords is that baby –  born in Bethlehem, born of a virgin and born to die. Jesus Christ who rose from the dead, conquered sin and death and is coming again!  May the good news the shepherds received that night fill your hearts and minds with the same joy that filled theirs and may the God of peace and hope comfort you with these words – Jesus is coming again!

And,  as always –  “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, they shall prosper who love thee”.  Psalm 122:6        Watching and waiting with YOU for the soon return of Jesus!  Cindy



  1. Thank you Cindy, for drawing our focus to Jesus, our Savior, as we near
    the end of 2011. He could have called 10,000 angels, yet He made the
    mental choice to stay and suffer so that we might have eternal life! What
    a difference between the choices He made for us and the choices our
    leader has been making. He is coming back with authority and every
    knee will bow and every tongue confess that He is Lord of Lords and King
    of Kings.

    I have seen several articles on how December 21, 2010 is actually
    December 21, 2012. An article on the Great Pyramid tells how this
    error in our calendar was made: (Part II) Great Pyramid

    I found the following article very interesting. It gives a
    “different” view as to what is transpiring in our galaxy that is
    causing great energy shifts here on earth. There appears to
    be a connection between the “sea of glass” mentioned in
    Revelation and a discovery that was made on the moon.

    I would like to tell your readers that it is so very important to
    give your entire life to Jesus, repent of your sins, and turn from
    all ungodliness and filth in your life. He came as a baby and
    died on the cross that we might have eternal life. We are at
    the brink of the closing of the Age of Grace – the age God
    ordained for the Gentiles. We are watching Revelation unfold
    in front of our eyes!

  2. As usual, another great article Cindy.

    You mentioned the Solar Eclipse and Solstice 21 Dec 2010.

    This is a rare occurrence. In fact, the next total lunar eclipse on December 21 (winter solstice) will be in 2094. And, the last time there was a total lunar eclipse on the day of the winter solstice was Dec 22, 1703… over 300 years ago.

    This date in History…

    490th Anniversary of the Reformation

    390 Years in the Bible…

    For I have laid upon thee the years of their iniquity, according to the number of the days, three hundred and ninety days: so shalt thou bear the iniquity of the house of Israel. Ezekiel 4:5

    Kingdom Divided – 3020 + 390 years =Jerusalem Falls – 3410
    Of course this applied only to Israel…

    Then there is another eclipse on Jan-4th 2011 combined with the third conjunction of Jupiter.

    Interesting times…

    • I thought I would add this…

      A pattern of eclipses..
      Some interesting, yet useless information.

      1619 Dec 21 (14th Tevet) Lunar Eclipse
      1620 Jan 04 (28th Tevet) Solar Eclipse
      1620 Jun 15 (14th Sivan) Lunar Eclipse
      1620 Dec 09 (14th Kislev) Lunar Eclipse

      390 years later…
      2010 Dec 21 (14th Tevet) Lunar Eclipse
      2011 Jan 04 (28th Tevet) Solar Eclipse
      2011 Jun 15 (14th Sivan) Lunar Eclipse
      2011 Dec 10 (14th Kislev) Lunar Eclipse

      • Word is it has been 456 years since this last happened:

      • Hi Jay, Very interesting! Thanks for taking the time to share that link. I had not originally planned to write on this subject but, God convinced me other wise this morning. Look for a post on this subject, hopefully, before the weekend is over. Cindy

      • FYI, NASA eclipse site…

        1619 Dec 21

        1620 Jan 04

        I do not think the solstice was on December 21st in 1619, if you look back 2000 years the solstice was near Dec-25th and it slowly precessed to Dec-21st on todays calendar.

        I also found this interesting…
        2 BC Dec 26th Magi Solar Eclipse (Solstice at that time)
        2019 Dec 26th Hanukkah + Christmas Solar Eclipse


  3. In early March, 2009, I wrote of the president:

    “What very few allow themselves to consider (because it just sounds too crazy, and because its full implications are almost too horrible to contemplate) is that Obama’s frame of reference for what constitutes ‘good’ and ‘progress’ and ‘change’ may be anathema to everything, and I mean EVERYTHING – right, left and center — that this country has stood for since its founding.”

    The evil one comes only to kill, steal and destroy. The longer he can masquerade as having motivations other than that — i.e., the longer he can fool people into thinking he is merely incompetent or has had a string of bad luck, or that perhaps he will ‘come around’ or learn on the job — the more he (the evil one) can accomplish his goal. (Hitler was really quite inept when you think about it in these terms.)

    The fact that the world (largely un- if not anti-Christian) is still is so enamored of him provides an important clue to the spirit that animates him.

    BECAUSE we as a nation have not remained focused on Jesus Christ, as you have noted well in this post, Cindy — and thank you! — we as a nation have effectively ‘earned’ him. Comparisons to alien beings are apt. We know that such beings are really demons. Whatever or whomever he is, we let him in and God allowed it. We have chosen to drink the cup of our own Obamanations down to its dregs.

    • Johnathan Edwards once wrote “God doesn’t have to push a man down, man walks away from God’s protection and his foot will slip in due season”.

      America is overdue waiting on gravity.

      The faithfull have a bright hope.

      Blessings Brother.

      • Great quote Michael, thanks for sharing it!

    • Excellent comment Art!

  4. How interesting that with all the UFO phenomena going now, that back when he made that joke he chose to joke about being an alien. Many believe he may indeed be an alien, as in foreigner by birth, but who knows what else may come especially in the days ahead.

    Also, interesting to see Solana is back in the news and involved in the mid-east peace nonsense:
    That didn’t take long.
