Obama & Jacob

I've changed my mind a couple of times over Obama too. Observing what he does on ceremonial occasions (starting with returning that Churchill statue when taking office) I've since been kept informed that ceremonial anomalies (like the date 'mistake' in Westminster Cathedral) are worth considering. Depending on your point of view and openness to interpretation they have  significance. Anybody who rejects that completely hasn't looked into the very architecture and plan of Washington D.C. 

So I sought out his 9/11 speech and aside from being a part of the Bible that reaches out to Muslims and Christians (both a Hebrew and Islamic prophet) it also relies strongly on earth changes for metaphors. My question is what if those aren't metaphors? Earth changes are the biggest story of 2011 and maybe much further back.

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. 
Therefore, we will not fear, even though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea. 
Though its waters roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with its swelling, there’s a river whose streams shall make glad 
the City of God; the holy place of the Tabernacle of the Most High. 
God is in the midst of her. 
She shall not be moved. 
God shall help her just at the break of dawn. 
The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved. 
He uttered his voice. 
The earth melted. 
The Lord of Hosts is with us. 
The God of Jacob is our refuge. 
Come behold the works of the Lord, has made desolations in the Earth. 
He makes wars cease to the ends of the Earth. 
He breaks the bough and cuts the spear in two. 
He burns the chariot in fire. 
Be still and know that I am God. 
I will be exalted among the nations. 
I will be exalted in the Earth. 
The Lord of Hosts is with us. 
The God of Jacob is our refuge.
