There has been speculation swirling for several years, though more so lately, that Hillary Clinton might run for the presidency in 2016. Armstrongism has been particularly perturbed that women rule over nations because they take certain scripture literally and see it as prophecy in action.
The non-ordained self appointed false prophet Robert Thiel is in a dither today claiming that if she is elected then we will see the Isaiah 3:12 “prophecy" fulfilled. We will also see our damnation and the immediate decline of the country.
Has Hillary announced she is running? No. She signed a contract for a public speaking circuit. The non-ordained false prophet feels this is a precursor to her running for the presidency. These public speaking circuits draw huge crowds and are quit popular. Pasadena has these speakers come to the Pasadena Civic Auditorium several times a year and sells out each event. Most of the speakers are politicians who have served in various areas of the government. None of them have ever move don to seek the presidency.
Whether Hillary runs or not, today’s story about her signing the contract is NOT a prophetic event and does NOT mean she will run, as the false prophet Thiel is hyperventilating about.
The non-ordained false prophet quotes this:
February 18, 2013
Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton looks set to enter the lucrative speaking circuit as early as this spring, in the first phase of her public life after four years in the Obama administration.
The popular Democrat has signed on with the Harry Walker agency, which also handles speaking engagements for her husband, former president Bill. She is expected to draw fees in the high six-figures for some talks. The news was first reported by Politico, the Washington-based politics site.The former secretary’s next moves are being closely watched for signs that she is running – or not – for the presidency in 2016…A survey this month by Quinnipiac University, a major pollster, found that Clinton is the most popular political figure in the United States, with a 61-34 split in her favorability rating. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/feb/18/hillary-clinton-enters-speaking-circuit
Then the non-ordained prophet says:
By accepting the speaking route, Hillary Clinton can have control of her workload, make money, keep her name in the news, and meet with various supporters should she choose to run for the presidency of the USA.
Ever since Margaret Thatcher was prime minister of the United Kingdom, I have felt that it is likely that the USA would end up with a female president or at least a highly influential woman in a top level federal government job. And Hillary Clinton has been fulfilling the latter for four years (as also have various female Supreme Court justices, etc.).
A female presidency can partially fulfill a prophecy in Isaiah 3:12:
As for My people, children are their oppressors, And women rule over them. O My people! Those who lead you cause you to err, And destroy the way of your paths…
Of course, women are influential in the English-speaking nations and it is not absolutely required that the USA itself have a woman president, but I do feel that if we do get one, that this would be a partial, but significant, fulfillment of that prophecy.
When Barack Obama was re-elected I posted that I did not believe that the Great Tribulation would begin until after his second term ended (see Obama Re-Elected, So What is Ahead?). However, presuming she actually gets elected to become US President, the Great Tribulation could be during a Hillary Clinton term.
