Prophecies of Barack Obama?

by COGwriter

Is Barack Obama in prophecy? Are there Bible prophecies that Barack Obama may fulfill? What about Barack Obama and the predictions of Nostradamus? Are we close to the end of the world? Are there end time prophecies that Barack Obama seems to fit? Will Barack Obama cause the end of the world? Has Barack Obama fulfilled any prophecies or other predictions?

Many have seen how crowds used to react to his speaking and have wondered "Is Barack Obama Antichrist?"

Did you know that there are at least seventeen biblical reasons why Barack Obama may lead the United States to fulfill the predictions in the Apocalypse (also known as the Book of Revelation; watch also the YouTube Barack Obama and the State of the Apocalypse)? And that there are many older writings that indicate that Barack Hussein Obama may set the United States up for utter destruction?

This article will attempt to address external and biblical prophecies that may apply to Barack Hussein Obama (he and his Administration have already fulfilled at least a dozen I have had published).

Barack Obama: His Background, Birth, and Kenyan Prophecies

Barack Hussein Obama had a father who was a Luo Kenyan and a mother who was part Caucasian and part American Indian.

As few in the USA would be highly familiar with the Luo, here is some information on the Luo:

Luo… Throughout the nineteenth century AD , the Luo migrated into the area they now occupy in Kenya. They left lower savanna grasslands for higher and cooler regions with reliable rainfall…

LOCATION According to the last national population census conducted in 1989, the Luo number over 3 million people, or about 13 percent of Kenya’s total population…

For example, the Nomiya Luo Church, which started in 1912, was the first independent church in Kenya. The founder of this church, Johanwa Owalo, is believed to be a prophet similar to Jesus Christ and Muhammad. Owalo later teamed up with a Catholic priest and began teaching a new theology that rejected both the Pope and the doctrine of the trinity (Luo. Junior Worldmark Encyclopedia of World Cultures, 1999, article pages 1 & 3. http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_gx5217/is_1999/ai_n19133319/pg_1?tag=artBody;col1 viewed 11/04/08 )

Hence, there apparently is a Luo religion in Kenya, and there was one associated with it named Johanwa Owalo who made some prophecies.  And Barack Obama is considered to be a Luo. Interestingly, the Continuing Church of God has many members who are Luo Kenyan, who of course, are opposed to Barack Obama's positions on abortion, homosexuality, and certain other moral issues.

His first name, however, is Hebrew:

The meaning of the name Barak is Lightning, Spark

The origin of the name Barak is Hebrew (http://www.babynames.com/name/BARAK)

His middle name is Arabic:

The meaning of the name Hussein is Handsome One

The origin of the name Hussein is Arabic (http://www.babynames.com/name/HUSSEIN)

His last name seems to mean “slightly bent”:

The meaning of the name Obama is Slightly Bent

The origin of the name Obama is African

Notes: From a rare Luo (Kenyan) name, meaning a baby born with bent arm or leg or possibly a breech birth. (http://www.babynames.com/name/OBAMA)

While Obama is apparently a Luo Kenyan word, if it originally came from Hebrew, it most likely would have come from the word "Bama" (I have read, but not verified, that the Latin "O" is sometimes used in Hebrew as a conjunction such as meaning "and"):

The meaning of the name Bama is: Son of prophecy (http://www.babyhold.com/list/Hebrew_Baby_Names/Bama/details/ viewed 11/16/08).

So, combining the definitions above, the name Baraq Hussein Bama would essentially mean the Handsome Spark and Son of Prophecy.

Now, there is claimed to be a 1912 prophecy by Johanwa Owalo, the founder of Kenya’s Nomiya Luo Church, about the United States:

“So far have they [the United States] strayed into wickedness in those [future] times that their destruction has been sealed by my [father]. Their great cities will burn, their crops and cattle will suffer disease and death, their children will perish from diseases never seen upon this Earth, and I reveal to you the greatest [mystery] of all as I have been allowed to see that their [the United States] destruction will come about through the vengeful hands of one of our very own sons.” (for more details, please see Barack Obama, Prophecy, and the Destruction of the United States).

Since Barack Obama's father is ethnically a Luo of Kenya (see Kenya Rejoices as Obama Wins), Barack Obama seems to meet the criteria above as being "one of our our very sons." Some think this is contains specific Barack Obama predictions--but while the destruction of the USA is not yet, it does seem that Barack Obama has taken steps that will set the USA up for destruction.

Therefore, in a several senses, Barack Obama may be at least a "son of prophecy." Thus, even the name Barack Obama and prophecy seem to be linked to a degree (more on that is later in this article, see also Barack Obama in Islamic Prophecy?).

While I originally believed that Barack Obama was basically sincere and that he believes he is a well-meaning individual, I believe that since he may possibly be one the last USA presidents, he will somewhat fulfill certain end time prophecies (and I also felt that John McCain would help fulfill some if he had been elected USA president in the 2008 election, see the older news item US Election Tomorrow: Pray & Fast, as well as Mitt Romney in 2012).

Barack Obama, Isaiah, and Bible Prophecy

What about Barack Obama and biblical prophecy?

Well, by virtue of his timing, Barack Obama fulfilled many biblical prophecies, or at least implemented policies for many prophecies to be fulfilled.

Irrespective of possible Kenyan prophecies, the Bible itself warns that if the descendants of Israel sinned and did not repent, the following would happen:

43 The alien who is among you shall rise higher and higher above you, and you shall come down lower and lower (Deuteronomy 28:43).

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.” (Isaiah 3:12)

10 'The bricks have fallen down, But we will rebuild with hewn stones; The sycamores are cut down, But we will replace them with cedars." (Isaiah 9:10)

16 For the leaders of this people cause them to err, And those who are led by them are destroyed (Isaiah 9:16).

Since multiple millions of the physical descendants of reside in the United States (see Anglo - America in Prophecy & the Lost Tribes of Israel) and we are getting close to the end (Does God Have a 6,000 Year Plan? What Year Does the 6,000 Years End?), the above prophecies have been, fulfilled, to a degree, during Barack Obama's presidency. Many who place their trust in politicians will be disappointed. As far as Isaiah 9:10 goes, Barack Obama and other US politicians have seemingly defiantly claimed that the USA will rebuild, even as they have taken steps to turn the USA more away from biblical morality (more on Isaiah 9:10 is in the article Protestant and Church of God views of the United States in Bible Prophecy).

And while I do not doubt that Barack Obama is an American citizen (see Obama’s Citizenship?), because Barack Obama's father is Luo Kenyan, his mother is at least part Native American, AND because he was partially raised in Indonesia (a Muslim nation), in several ways he could be perceived as an alien. Hence, the biblical prophecy in Deuteronomy 28:43 MIGHT apply to Barack Obama (and it does also have multiple applications). But, because of his timing, I believe that the last two prophecies above will be partially fulfilled by him and as well as other end time leaders.

The end of the 6000 years God has granted humanity to rule itself will likely be over in the next decade or so (see Does God Have a 6,000 Year Plan? What Year Does the 6,000 Years End?). Thus, simply by the virtue of his timing, Barack Obama is destined to aid in the fulfillment of end time biblical prophecies.

As far as the prophecy for leaders causing people to err (Isaiah 9:16), in addition to his strong pro-abortion positions, Barack Obama's administration claims the following about him and homosexuality:

"The President has long believed that gay and lesbian couples deserve the same rights and legal protections as straight couples," White House spokesman Shin Inouye said. "That's why he has called for repeal of the so-called 'Defense of Marriage Act' and determined that his Administration would no longer defend the constitutionality of DOMA in the courts. (President Obama Says NY Gay Marriage Vote Is Process Working 'As It Should'. ABC News. http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/president-obama-ny-gay-marriage-vote-process-working/story?id=13930863)

In nod to gay rights, Obama backs repeal of DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act), which defines marriage as between one man and one woman and withholds federal benefits from gay married couples. (Richey W. Obama, in stand for gay rights, calls for repeal of DOMA. Christian Science Monitor, July 19, 2011. http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Politics/2011/0719/Obama-in-stand-for-gay-rights-calls-for-repeal-of-DOMA)

In his State of the Union address in 2014, Barack Obama said the following:

Across the country, we’re partnering with mayors, governors, and state legislatures on issues from homelessness to marriage equality…

'Marriage equality' is a code term meaning the promotion of same-sex/homosexual marriages. For more on the 2104 State of the Union and certain apocalyptic positions and actions of Barack Obama, watch also the YouTube Barack Obama and the State of the Apocalypse.

In his State of the Union address in 2013, Barack Obama said the following:

We will ensure equal treatment for all service members, and equal benefits for their families, gay and straight. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/02/12/transcript-obama-state-union-speech/#ixzz2KnGCU4Vj

He also made various statements promoting abortion in 2013:

President Barack Obama vowed Friday to fight with Planned Parenthood against what he said were efforts across the country to turn women’s health back to the 1950s… Mr. Obama asserted that “an assault on women’s rights” is underway across the country, with bills being introduced in nearly every state legislature to limit or ban abortion or restrict access to birth control… Mr. Obama says he fought for his health care law to ensure individuals have the right to make their own medical choices. He’s asking medical providers and abortion rights supporters to “get the word out” about the law’s benefits. He encouraged those gathered to continue fighting for abortion rights. “You’ve also got a president who is going to be right there with you, fighting every step of the way,” Mr. Obama said. http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-250_162-57581613/abortion-foes-want-to-turn-back-the-clock-obama-says/

President Barack Obama said Thursday he was comfortable with his administration's decision to allow over-the-counter purchases of a morning-after pill for anyone 15 and older. http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/obama-new-morning-after-pill-limit-article-1.1334023

Notice the following from the Bible:

22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man — and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.

24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.  (Romans 1:22-32)

Does not Barack Obama endorse biblically prohibited behavior that God indicates is deserving of punishment?

And that is not all. He has issued various executive orders, etc. related encouraging abortions. and also supports homosexual marriage (see also Obama Administration pleads that the Supreme Court should overturn DOMA and California’s anti-homosexual marriage law and Obama, Supreme Court, and homosexual ‘marriage’).

Notice something from the Old Testament:

19 For the Lord brought Judah low because of Ahaz king of Israel, for he had encouraged moral decline in Judah and had been continually unfaithful to the Lord. (2 Chronicles 28:19)

Might leaders like Barack Obama who seem to be encouraging biblically-moral declines cause the USA to be brought low?

One of the better known things that Barack Obama did as USA president early into his presidency, was signing into to a law a bill that greatly increased the debt of the USA. He has also indicated that he would need to pursue policies that will increase that debt during at least his first administration--and this has happened. I actually started to warn in 2008, prior to him taking office, that Barack Obama would increase debt (and also put that in a book that was published in 2009), and he has.

Notice also the following:

Debt Up $6.666 Trillion Under Obama...

When President Obama was first inaugurated on Jan. 20, 2009, the debt of the U.S. government was $10,626,877,048,913.08, according to the Treasury Department’s Bureau of the Public Debt. As of Jan. 31, 2014, the latest day reported, the debt was $17,293,019,654,983.61—an increase of $6,666,142,606,070.53 since Obama’s first inauguration.

The total debt of the United States did not exceed $6.666 trillion until July 2003. In the little more than five years of the Obama presidency, the U.S. has accumulated as much new debt as it did in it’s first 227 years.

http://cnsnews.com/news/article/ali-meyer/debt-6666-trillion-under-obama#nationaldebt

The Bible warns about a nation that will increase its debt in the end time:

3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry...
6 "Will not all these take up a proverb against him, And a taunting riddle against him, and say, 'Woe to him who increases
What is not his--how long? And to him who loads himself with many pledges'? 7 Will not your creditors rise up suddenly? Will they not awaken who oppress you? And you will become their booty. 8 Because you have plundered many nations, All the remnant of the people shall plunder you (Habakkuk 2:3,6-8).

Hence, Barack Obama seems to currently be fulfilling the part of that prophecy of increasing pledges/debt. And, of course, it is possible that the rest of the above prophecy will be fulfilled while he is USA president (to learn what is prophesied to happen to the USA, please see Anglo - America in Prophecy).

Furthermore, the Bible predicts the rise at the appointed time of the end of a King of the North and a King of the South. Years ago, I warned that various statements that Barack Obama has made suggest that he will implement policies that will likely help lead to their formations (see also Barack Obama in Islamic Prophecy?)--and he has done so.

Perhaps it should be mentioned that while many American evangelicals believe that they will be part of a pre-tribulation rapture (and presumably miss the punishments that this world will experience in the end), this is not what the Bible teaches (Is There A Secret Rapture for the Church? When and Where is the Church Protected?).

There are many Bible prophecies that show what appears to be the destruction of the United States and its Anglo-allies (see Anglo - America in Prophecy). And as the USA increases debt and strains its military, the destructive end time prophecies are getting closer to final fulfillment.

While Philadelphia Christians are promised protection from the hour of trial," that protection is on the earth (please see There is a Place of Safety for the Philadelphians. Why it May Be Petra). Thus, Barack Obama's likely impact on apocalyptic matters is likely to affect everyone living at the end. More on that is covered in the book Barack Obama, Prophecy, and the Destruction of the United States-Second Edition for Second Obama Term.

Barack Obama and the Prophecies of Nostradamus

Might Nostradamus have referred to Barack Obama?

And while many Catholics distance themselves from his writing, Nostradamus was a Catholic. One Catholic writer wrote:

Nostradamus...A member of the third order of St. Francis, he enjoyed the friendship of Pope Pius IV. He was a devout Catholic all his life...Nostradamus was an authentic seer (Dupont, Yves. Catholic Prophecy: The Coming Chastisement. TAN Books, Rockford (IL), 1973, p. 93).

However, with the advent of the internet, some so-called predictions of Nostradamus that have popped-up this year may be later inventions.

There are three prophecies attributed to Nostradamus in this section, the latter two are truly from Nostradamus, but the first one may be a modern invention.

There is a satirical source called the Daily Squib (a "squib" is a brief satirical or witty piece of writing or speech, like a lampoon, though the following article seems to have been accepted as true by some) that posted the following, which seems to be a hoax:

WASHINGTON DC - USA - Scholars for the Smithsonian Institute have uncovered new interpretations that may relate to Barack Obama, the Illinois senator vying to become the next US president.

Professor Eugene Randell, Deputy Director of the Smithsonian Institution Archives has released information pertaining to the up and coming US elections. The Institute which holds some very rare Nostradamus manuscripts, believes that some of the quatrains written by the 16th century soothsayer are very close to describing the fight for the White House that is happening now.

"We have the only existing fourth edition of Nostradamus' book Les Propheties (The Prophecies). There were thought to be only three editions published in 1558, this new edition is from 1559 and includes 20 more quatrains which have never been revealed before -- that is, until now," Professor Randell said from the archive office on Tuesday.

Nostradamus has been credited with predicting numerous events in world history, from the Great Fire of London, the rise of Napoleon I of France, the French Revolution and Adolf Hitler, to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center.

The professor told the Daily Squib that it is well known that some of the quatrains are open to interpretation however what he has translated from the previously unreleased manuscript will certainly "ruffle a few feathers".

243 The great empire will be torn from limb, The all-powerful one for more than four hundred years: Great power given to the dark one from slaves come, The Aryana will not be satisfied thereby.

(Nostradamus Obama Prophecies Revealed April 10th, 2008 by Andrew Olsen)

I need to add that I have many reasons to doubt that this account is true. My attempts to verify that there is such a professor named Eugene Randell at the Smithsonian have been fruitless. One source I found on the web states that the above is a hoax, while another claims that the Smithsonian denied it to him in writing. Furthermore, if a previously unknown 20 quatrains were actually released by the Smithsonian, then I believe that other news sources would have picked it up (certainly by now!) as Nostradamus predictions are often covered by even the normal media. Additionally, although the Daily Squib is on the internet, the only references to '"Andrew Olsen" Squib' on a Google search as of 11/29/08 is the above article--hence even Andrew Olsen seems to be possibly invented--plus that is the only article within the Daily Squib website that comes up with the name Andrew Olsen. I also contacted the Daily Squib twice to see if they would stand behind their story and they have thus far failed to respond to my inquiries.

And while "Quatrain 243" may be an invented fraud, the following (which is known as Quatrain 50) truly is from Nostradamus, with the Comment from a Catholic writer:

Under the sign of Libra, America shall reign, Shall hold power in the sky and on land, Shall never perish under Asian forces, Until seven Pontificates have passed. (Yves Dupont, p.94)

Comment: As a great world power, the U.S.A. began its "reign" during the first World War--but it was not the greatest world power; in 1918, that was France. In 1945, however, the U.S.A. was, by and large, the greatest world power. I think it is from the reign of Pius XII that the seven Pontificates must be counted, and this brings us to the last Pope according to St. Malachy's list--when the world will end. (comment is from the Catholic writer Y. Dupont personally in 1973, p.94)

It appears that the above private Catholic prophecies suggests that the end of the USA will thus be in the 21st century. And as far as Asian forces go, this could be interpreted to include terrorists from places like Afghanistan, Pakistan, and others parts of Asia. Barack Obama has repeatedly pledged to increase US military action in Afghanistan. Notice one item from the Associated Press:

Obama wants to step up the U.S. fight against terrorism in Afghanistan.

The United States has some 32,000 soldiers in Afghanistan. Obama has said he plans to add about 7,000 or 8,000 troops to the NATO mission there next year. (French FM airs doubt about Obama's Afghan plan (November 23, 2008. http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5h6NmUjjd3zKDic6BNo5qmmr4TlKwD94KT7AO2).

Getting back to Y. Dupont's comments, it needs to be mentioned that pope number 112 on the Malachy list is Pope Francis (see The Malachy Prophecies and "Peter the Roman"). Some Catholics suspect that this could be an antipope (for specific Catholic private prophecies which could be about him please see The Malachy Prophecies and "Peter the Roman"), who could be the Antichrist. Now although I am fairly sure that Y. Dupont was French and translated this for his book, there is another translation of Quatrain 50 that perhaps should be shown as it implies something a little bit different:

Libra will see the western lands (America) to govern,
Holding the rule over the skies and the earth
No one will see the forces of Asia destroyed
Until seven hold the hierarchy in succession.

Comment by Indian writer who then cites Quatrain 74: The "seven" are the seven millennia in Nostradamus' calculations which end in A.D. 2000, which also links this quatrain to the quatrain below:

The year the great seventh number is accomplished
Appearing at the time of the games of slaughter,
Not far from the age of the great millennium (2000)
When the dead will come out of their graves.

(Rajesh Chopra, editor in chief.  Nostradamus Prophecies with Famous Examples. http://www.liveindia.com/nostradamus/famous.html viewed 11/29/08)

Now the above suggests that the forces of Asia will not be destroyed until the "seven hold the hierarchy in succession." This would essentially suggest that during the time of the seventh (who did take over the pontificate while Barack Obama is in office) and potentially last pope that Asian forces will be destroyed. And while the United States would be destroyed before massive Asian forces are destroyed, the Bible does warn that the "kings of the east" will come together at Armageddon (Revelation 16:12-16) and that a 200,000,000 man army will be destroyed (Revelation 9:13-20; 16:16)--this is also discussed in the article Asia in Prophecy.

Irrespective of which of the translations of Quatrain 50 is more accurate (it is difficult for even modern translators of French to properly translate Nostradamus' writings into English because of the older form of French he tended to use as I discovered when I contacted one about this a year or two ago), the fact is that if Y. Dupont is correct about the seven being popes until the last one on the Malachy prophecy list, then it is possible that Barack Obama may be the last leader of the America to govern before the end. And if the Indian writer is correct that the seven times refers to the end coming in this millennium, while this does not point towards Barack Obama as directly, it does not preclude it including him.

If Barack Obama survives in office, then he would remain US president until January 19, 2017. (Could he be followed by Hillary Clinton? An article of related interest may be Hillary Clinton in Prophecy.)

And IF the current pope is the antipope (please see One More Pope?), the final Antichrist, then the following one of Nostradamus' writings may apply to Barack Obama (perhaps the "Reb" below), shown in the original French followed by an English translation:

C10:Q66

Le chef de Londres par regne l'Americh,
L'Isle d'Escosse tempiera par gelee:
Roy Reb auront vn si faux Antechrist,
Que les mettra trestous dans la meslee.

The chief of London through the realm of America,
The Isle of Scotland will be tried by frost:
King and "Reb" will face an Antichrist so false,
That he will place them in the conflict all together.

(Nostradamus. Les Propheties. 1840 Bareste edition.  http://yowusa.com/nostradamus/c10/61.shtml visited 10/22/07 & 11/29/08).

The above Quatrain 66 suggests that the leader of the United Kingdom (chief of London and involving Scotland), probably called the "King", will be influenced by the realm of America, with the leader called "Reb" (America rebelled against England in 1776) and will encounter an Antichrist that will ultimately place them into conflict. So there appear to be at least two quatrains from Nostradamus that seem to point to Barack Obama (while the one most commonly looked at on the web is apparently a hoax).

And while we should not rely on non-biblical prophecies, it is possible that Satan or his agents influenced some of them (as even the demons know about prophecy, Matthew 4:5-9; 8:29), as the Bible indicates that probably sometime next decade the Anglo-American powers will be destroyed and that Antichrist will rise up.

Perhaps I should add here that various private Catholic prophecies point to the destruction of the English peoples (which apparently includes Americans) at the time of the end by one they often referred to as "the Great Monarch:

Saint Cataldus of Tarentino (c. 500): "The Great Monarch will be in war till he is forty years of age....he will assemble great armies and expel tyrants from his empire. He will conquer England and other island empires" (Connor, Edward. Prophecy for Today. Imprimatur + A.J. Willinger, Bishop of Monterey-Fresno; Reprint: Tan Books and Publishers, Rockford (IL), 1984, p.30).

Saint Edward (d. 1066) “The extreme corruption and wickedness of the English nation has provoked the just anger of God.  When malice shall have reached the fullness of its measure, God will, in His wrath, send to the English people wicked spirits, who will punish and afflict them with great severity…” (Culleton, R. Gerald.  The Prophets and Our Times. Nihil Obstat: L. Arvin.  Imprimatur: Philip G. Scher, Bishop of Monterey-Fresno, November 15, 1941.  Reprint 1974, TAN Books, Rockford (IL), p. 137).

It has been foretold in 597, by ST. Columbkille..."... The English shall dwindle into disreputable people and shall forever be derived of power" (Culligan, E. The Last World War and the End of Time. The book was blessed by Pope Paul VI, 1966. TAN Books, Rockford (IL), pp. 118-119).

Mother Shipton (d. 1551) “... York shall be London and the Kingdom governed by three Lords appointed by a Royal Great monarch…who will set England right and drive out heresy (Culleton, p. 163).

Werdin d' Otrante (13th century): "The Great Monarch and the Great Pope will precede Antichrist...All the sects will vanish. The capital of the world will fall..." (Connor, p. 33)

It should be noted that there was no nation called England when most of the above were written, hence, it is likely that they were referring to the Anglo-derived peoples (from hence came the name England), and thus may be referring to the United States as "England" and the UK, Australia, and New Zealand as the "other island empires".

Now, if one presumes, that at least in a sense, that Washington, D.C. is the capital of the world, then these prophesies could be fulfilled with Barack Obama as president (more on the identity of the USA in prophecy, as well as additional Catholic private prophecies that may refer to it, are in the article Anglo - America in Prophecy). More on that can be found in the book Barack Obama, Prophecy, and the Destruction of the United States-Second Edition for Second Obama Term.

Is Barack Obama the Antichrist?

No, Barack Obama is not the final prophesied Antichrist.  The Bible shows that the final Antichrist is a religious leader as opposed to a primarily political one (2 John 7, 1 John 2:18, 1 John 2:22, and 1 John 4:3). This would indicate that Barack Obama is not, and could not be, the final Antichrist.

However, many on the Internet have given a variety of reasons why they believe that he is actually the Antichrist.

Here are seven claims that supposedly indicate that Barack Obama is the Antichrist, along with brief explanations as to why each of them is in error. 

CLAIM 1. The Beast is 666.  6+6+6=18, the number of letters in Barack Hussein Obama, whose Chicago power base includes the 60606 zip code.  On November 5 —the day after the election —in Obama's home state of Illinois—the evening “Pick 3” lottery number was 6-6-6.

The Bible says that the number is six hundred, and sixty-six (Revelation 13:18), rather than three sixes.  Thus, nothing in  that claim ties Barack Obama to 666.

CLAIM 2. False Prophets Will Precede.  Antichrist will be heralded by false prophets.  Jeremiah Wright and Father Pfleger, who claim to be in the prophetic tradition, compared Barack to Jesus.  Louis Farrakhan called Barack "the Messiah.

Actually, the Bible teaches that one called the false prophet will do miracles and cause people to worship the image of the Beast (Revelation 16:13-14; 13:12-15).  Neither Jeremiah Wright nor the other two mentioned above have thus far qualified according to the Bible.

CLAIM 3. Satanic Palindrome.  Sasha is only the nickname of Obama's oldest daughter.  Her legal name is NATASHA—the reverse of AH SATAN.
Natasha is the Russian version of the name Natalie.  It is a female given name: from a Latin word meaning “birthday.” 

Those who claim that putting his daughter's name backwards has something to do with him being Antichrist is a low blow. She has enough concerns as a president’s daughter.  She does not need to be picked on because of her name.  His daughter’s name is simply not relevant.

CLAIM 4. Antichrist is a Charismatic Speaker Worshipped By The Masses.  The Book of Daniel says the Beast will arise in a country made up of "diverse" people from "all kingdoms" [which could describe the USA] … The charismatic Barack is conceited and is worshipped throughout the world, including in the European Union—the successor to the Roman Empire.  

The Beast is not the final Antichrist (see www.ccog.org). The Beast will be the King of the North and  a European. The United States is not the heir to the ancient Roman Empire—Europe is (Revelation 13).

CLAIM 5. New Nostradamus Quatrains  Scholars for the Smithsonian Institute have uncovered new interpretations that may relate to Barack Obama … Professor Eugene Randell, Deputy Director of the Smithsonian Institution Archives has released information pertaining to the up and coming US elections. The Institute which holds some very rare Nostradamus manuscripts, believes that some of the quatrains written by the 16th century soothsayer are very close to describing the fight for the White House that is happening now...
243 The great empire will be torn from limb, The all-powerful one for more than four hundred years: Great power given to the dark one from slaves come, The Aryana will not be satisfied thereby.

The above story (though still popular on the Internet) is apparently a satirical hoax.  There does not appear to have ever been a Professor Eugene Randell who was Deputy Director of the Smithsonian Institution Archives; nor is this new Quatrain 243 legitimate.  The publisher of the above (The Daily Squib) also would not verify, nor respond at all, concerning its story, even after two requests were made to it by me years ago.

CLAIM 6. Mayan 2012 Calendar.  The Beast/Antichrist will rule for 42 months of relative peace and prosperity…in the middle of the fourth year of his reign…{is the} the Battle of Armageddon.  The fourth year of Barack's presidency will be 2012, the year the Mayan calendar comes to an end, the year of a rare planetary alignment...

While Barack Obama’s first term as president included the year 2012, the end did not come then as some believed that the Mayan 2012 prophecies indicated (for more details, please see my book 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect). 

As the seven-year deal in Daniel 9:27 has not happened yet, as I wrote years ago, it was not possible that the so-called “Battle of Armageddon” could begin in Barack Obama’s first term (Armageddon is the place where troops are staged per Revelation 16:12-16 for a later battle).  And at this stage it is impossible for this battle to occur in the second Obama term.

The next claim was based upon someone’s “personal vision”:
CLAIM 7. Fulfilled Daniel 9:27. Very early in the morning, on Thanksgiving Day, I could not get back to sleep...I was very, very confident that the Lord was giving me a BRAND NEW REVELATION, further confirmation that on OCT. 29, 2008, OBAMA CONFIRMED THE COVENANT OF DANIEL 9:27, thrusting the world into the Final Seven Years...The Lord had called me to be a watchman many years ago...We have in circulation almost 10,000,000 tracts...2520 days (360 days X 7 Jewish years), after the 30 MINUTES OF SILENCE IN HEAVEN on Oct. 29, 2008, is Feast of Atonement. This is by divine design, not happenstance, or coincidence...There may be a peace treaty with Israel and the Antichrist in the near future, but it will NOT be 7 years in length and it will NOT be the fulfillment of Daniel 9:27. THE FULFILLMENT OF DANIEL 9:27 HAS ALREADY HAPPENED ON OCT. 29, 2008, WITH THE CONFIRMING OF THE COVENANT. TRY CONVINCING ALL OF THAT AWESTRUCK AUDIENCE IN HEAVEN, WHO WERE COMPLETELY SILENT FOR EXACTLY 30 MINUTES AS OBAMA GAVE HIS HISTORIC SPEECH that this was not the confirming of the covenant of Daniel 9:27…

Contrary to claims and visions, the deal in Daniel 9:27 has not been made (Barack Obama was not even elected president in October 2008).  The deal will be confirmed by a European as even many Protestant commentators recognize.  This deal still needs to be made.  It should also be noted that the Day of Atonement in 2015 will be on September 23rd, and therefore not 2520 days after October 29 as the above “personal vision“ claimed.  Hence, I cannot accept his vision as coming from God.

Barack Obama, contrary to various posts and emails floating around on the Internet, is not the Antichrist. 

However, because of his timing and his stated policies years ago (in 2009) I wrote, "it is likely that he will (most likely inadvertently) support the rise of the prophesied King of the North, the King of the South, and (most likely indirectly) the final Antichrist" and at least for the first two he has.

Also, part of his charismatic style may very well be copied by the future final Beast leader of Revelation 13, who is the final King of the North of Daniel 11.  And Barack Obama may help enable the rise of him as well as the future King of the South. And he has already taken steps to do so (for some details, please get the book Barack Obama, Prophecy, and the Destruction of the United States-Second Edition for Second Obama Term and it is also available electronically Barack Obama, Prophecy, and the Destruction of the United States-Second Term-Amazon Kindle edition).

One Claimed that Barack Obama Supposedly Was to Be Converted in the Spring of 2010

One named Kim Clement allegedly prophesied the following in Memphis, Tennessee on October 26, 2009:

"For there has been a scheme and a plan against the President of this nation, to suffocate him." God says, "The enemy has planned in 2010 to bring shame to the first African President. So that they will say, 'Never again shall an African American be the President of the United States.' This will not happen," says the Lord. "This will not happen. This will not happen.

"There shall come a change in the early part of 2010 and many will say, 'Look, things are not quite as bad as what it seemed,' and those who have murmured and those who have spoken evil, those who have spread words out to bring shame to this race will not be satisfied."...

God says, "Your President shall have a great conversion in 2010 which will bring about changes to this nation and because I have spoken.

"Your prayers and your praise shall bring about a change in the atmosphere; your praise and your shouts bring about a change, for you don't understand the significance of these sounds. I'm not listening to the journalists or the prognosticators. I'm not listening to CBS or NBC or ABC or FOX." God says, "I'm not listening!...

God says, "I will honor the prayer in the Easter of 2010. I will break the cycle.

"For they have predicted another one shall die in office. It shall not be so. For this President shall leave this office bringing honor to the African American people."  Source: http://www.elijahlist.com/words/display_word/8184

I absolutely did not accept the aforementioned "prophecy" as true when I first denounced this in November 2009 as I did not believe that the one who made this claim was God's prophet (see also How To Determine If Someone is a True Prophet of God and Why Be Concerned About False and Heretical Leaders?).

Perhaps I should also mention that Barack Obama already claims to be a "Christian" of the Greco-Roman sort and that he already was "converted." Though I have never believed that he was a real Christian.

Barack Obama and the Shiite Prediction of a Black Leader Leading to the Rise of the Mahdi

There is an amazing old Shiite prophecy that seems to fit Barack Hussein Obama personally. Notice what Forbes' writer Amir Taheri reported:

Is Barack Obama the “promised warrior” coming to help the Hidden Imam of Shiite Muslims conquer the world?

…a pro-government Web site published a Hadith (or tradition) from a Shiite text of the 17th century. The tradition comes from Bahar al-Anvar (meaning Oceans of Light) by Mullah Majlisi, a magnum opus in 132 volumes and the basis of modern Shiite Islam.

According to the tradition, Imam Ali Ibn Abi-Talib (the prophet’s cousin and son-in-law) prophesied that at the End of Times and just before the return of the Mahdi, the Ultimate Saviour, a “tall black man will assume the reins of government in the West.” Commanding “the strongest army on earth,” the new ruler in the West will carry “a clear sign” from the third imam, whose name was Hussein Ibn Ali. The tradition concludes: “Shiites should have no doubt that he is with us.”

In a curious coincidence Obama’s first and second names–Barack Hussein–mean “the blessing of Hussein” in Arabic and Persian. His family name, Obama, written in the Persian alphabet, reads O Ba Ma, which means “he is with us,” the magic formula in Majlisi’s tradition (for more details, please see Barack Obama in Islamic Prophecy?).

Since we are near the end of times and Barack Hussein Obama is considered to be black and he now the new "ruler in the West" and he now leads the" strongest army on earth," it makes sense that a lot of Shiite Muslims apparently believe that he may fit that Islamic prophecy.

Information on this prophecy was also in another article in Arabic that was translated into English:

According to the text that is the foundation of modern Shiite Islam, a prophecy that a tall black man would rule the West portends the coming of the Islamic redeemer.

Ali Ibn Abi-Talib—the prophet's cousin and son-in-law and the most revered figure in Shiite Islam—prophesied that before the return of the Mahdi, the ultimate redeemer in Islam, a tall black man will rule the West and will carry a "clear sign" from the Third Imam,Hussein Ibn Ali, according to the report by Iranian-born, London-based journalist Amir Taheri...

The Mahdi (Arabic for "the guided one"), is supposed to return before Judgment Day to eliminate injustice and tyranny. The appearance of the Mahdi is not mentioned in the Quran or the Sunnah (Prophet's teachings), and many Sunni scholars view it as a Shiite invention...in the 132-volume work by Shiite scholar Mullah Majlisi (Nayouf, Hayyan. Translated from Arabic by Sonia Farid. Shiite scholar denies Obama link to Muslim savior. Dubai. November 4, 2008. http://www.alarabiya.net/articles/2008/11/04/59490.html viewed 05/19/09).

Regardless of where it came from, is that a specific Barack Obama prophecy?

That is difficult to know for certain, other than to say that some Shiites seem to believe that their writings have Barack Hussein Obama in prophecy (others have challenged the integrity of Amir Taheri's writings).

And the fact that his name also seems to closely fit that prophecy suggests that he may. And while in I do not believe that Barack Hussein Obama himself believes that "he is with us" (as "o bama" apparently means in Persian) refers to him in that prophecy, the fact is that no other USA president has ever been as close to Muslims as President Obama.

Some suspected this Mahdi could appear in late 2012 (the Islamic even-numbered year begins November 15, 2012 and ends November 2013):

As the Koran states the Mahdi will not return in an odd-numbered year, as world chaos is to precipitate his reappearance, as Ahmadinejad claims the Mahdi’s return will occur before his presidency ends in 2013, as a dying Khamenei claims the return will happen before his death, and as Iran stands on the brink of arming itself with nuclear weapons, Khamenei and Ahmadinejad view the planets as all falling into alignment for them.

From the vantage point of these two fanatics, 2012 may be shaping up as the year of the Mahdi’s return.

(Zumwalt J.  Iran’s Dynamic Duo Dedicated to Global Destruction.  August 13, 2010. http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=38528)

Now, it needs to be made clear that the Bible predicts the rise in the end time of a Future King of the South--and this person may be the one that some Muslims will consider to be their prophesied "Mahdi" (see also The Arab and Islamic World In the Bible, History, and Prophecy). But obviously that did not happen in 2012.

And while I have not read the actual Shiite prophecy (and do not read Persian nor Arabic), and hence do not know if it is possible (or even likely) that Barack Obama will meet all the criteria of that prophecy (or if reports on it are entirely accurate), I have long believed that Barack Hussein Obama's administration will help (most likely inadvertently) lead to the rise of the Future King of the South mentioned in end time prophecy.

Additionally, notice what I wrote in my 2009 book 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect:

...the Bible predicts that at the appointed time, a King of the North and a King of the South with rise. Various statements that Barack Obama has made suggest that he will implement policies that will likely help lead to the multi-national formations that will ultimately have these kings.

With the American support of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, Syria, and Libya, plus the endorsement of Ennahda in Tunisia in 2011, Barack Obama has already done that for the King of the South (his Administration has also taken many steps to report the rise of the power that will be led by the King of the North). Many predictions about Barack Obama in my book 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect have come to pass and more will as well.

There is also another Islamic prophecy that perhaps suggests involvement from US President Barack Obama:

Traditions have been reported mentioning the signs for the time of the appearance of the Imam…black standards will advance from Khurasan; al-Yamani will come out in revolt; al-Maghribi will appear in Egypt and take possession of it from Syria; the Turk will occupy the region of al-Jazira; the Byzantines will occupy Ramla; the star will appear in the east giving light just like the moon gives light; then (the new moon) will bend until its two tips almost meet; a colour will appear in the sky and spread to its horizons; a fire will appear for a long time in the east remaining in the air for three or seven days; the Arabs will throw off the reins and take possession of their land, throwing out the foreign authority; the people of Egypt will kill their ruler and destroy Syria; and three standards will dispute over it (Syria)…

The Abbasids will dispute; a voice will call from the sky; one of the villages of Syria called al-Jabiyya will be swallowed up; the Turks will occupy the region of al-Jazira; the Byzantines will attack al-Ramla; at that time there will be much conflict throughout the land until Syria is destroyed.

(Kitab al Irshad Chapter: The Twelfth Imam (Peace be on him) Page (s): 541 – 548 Published by Tehrike Tersile Qura’n.  Contributed by Br. Ali Abbas, abbas@seas.gwu.edu  http://www.al-islam.org/masoom/bios/12thimam.html viewed 7/22/12)

Why might this involve Barack Obama?

On August 2, 2012, I reported that a secret agreement that Barack Obama allegedly signed showed that he was backing the rebels in Syria (see Reuters: Obama Signed Secret Order to Back Rebels to Overthrow Syria’s Assad). It seems that the USA is committed to changing the government in Syria through military, and not simply economic, means.

The Bible itself teaches that Damascus will be destroyed (Isaiah 17:1).  Might the USA directly or indirectly assist in the destruction of Damascus?  Could the “black standard” have anything to do with a black USA president?  It may. If so, this may be another Islamic prophecy involving Barack Obama.

What religion is Barack Obama?

Barack Obama seems to be a supporter of a Constantinian religion (comes out of the Greco-Roman tradition, not the genuine Church of God) which claims Christ. Yet, he does not seem to be highly involved with it. For example, in the first few weeks after the election, he did not attend any church service according to an AP story (Obama skips church, heads to gym. November 23, 2008). He ended up not joining any church, but makes public church appearances on occasion (a couple times a year).  Whether he makes the public appearances to give the impression he is Christian or this is what he believes is not clear to me.

However, because his religion is of the Constantinian variety, Barack Obama will likely not understand end-time prophecies and this will lead him to be more accommodating to the rise of the Beast than one who understands end-time prophecy would likely be.

Here is a listing of a dozen reasons that thinking, biblically-oriented Catholics and Protestants, may conclude Barack Obama is not a real Christian:

  1. He stopped regularly attending outside church services after becoming elected President of the United States (except for some public events; cf. Matthew 23:6-7)–so his sincerity is doubted.

  2. He has pushed the homosexual agenda. “Though President Obama opposed gay marriage during the 2008 election” (http://www.theatlanticwire.com/national/2012/02/five-best-tuesday-columns/48958/) he now supports and advocates it (see also Obama Announces He Wants to Repeal Defense of Marriage Act and Increase Debt).

  3. One of his first acts after taking office was to increase international funding for abortions.  He makes various public statements supporting abortion (notice, for example, last month Obama’s Latest Defense of Abortion).

  4. On an international trip, he referred to the Muslim book as “the Holy Quran.”  Real Christians do not consider the Quran as holy.

  5. While in office, he attended the first “feeding” for Ramadan at least one year. Christians are not supposed to observe holy days of other religions.

  6. He has been found to carry a Hindu monkey god (see Barack Obama Carries Hindu Monkey God).  No Christian intentionally carries around pagan idols.

  7. His US Supreme Court appointees are believed to be supporters of on-demand abortion.

  8. He seems to support “freedom of worship” as opposed to “freedom of religion” (Obama Administration Changing Freedom of Religion?).  This has carried forward in his stance on forcing the paying for various forms of contraception, including abortive pills, as he seems to feel that his form of morality should trump those who have religious beliefs to the contrary.  And even though the beliefs of the Philadelphia remnant of the Church of God on family planning are closer to those held by the Eastern Orthodox, than Roman, Catholics, I believe that the President has crossed a line that should concern all who profess Christ.

  9. He seems to claim that political forms of covetousness are consistent with his “Christian Faith” values (see Obama Claims His Economic Policies are Linked to His ‘Christian Faith’).

  10. He seems to advocate class warfare (see Obama: ‘You Can Call this Class Warfare).

  11. He has increased the regulatory burden on some Americans excessively (cf. Jesus’ warnings Matthew 23:4-5).

I have always had questions about Barack Obama's real faith and beliefs. And do not believe that he should truly be considered to be a real Christian.

Is Barack Obama Muslim?

Many have wondered, "Is Barack Obama Muslim?"

No, not if one needs to proclaim Islam to be one. Barack Obama's personal religion is not Islam. He does not pray five times per day at the prescribed times or do many of the things that Muslims actually do.

Notice what his old "Fight the Smears" website claimed:

The Truth About Barack’s Faith

Barack Obama is a committed Christian. He was sworn into the Senate on his family Bible. He has regularly attended church with his wife and daughters for years.

But shameful, shadowy attackers have been lying about Barack’s religion, claiming he is a Muslim instead of a committed Christian.(http://fightthesmears.com/articles/3/baracksfaith viewed 11/29/08)

While I do not believe that he is committed to true Christianity, Barack Obama does not seem to be a secret Muslim (a real Muslim prays five times per day in a manner that Barack Obama is not known for doing). Hence, in that sense I do not believe he will fit prophecies that indicate that a committed Muslim will do anything. Yet, however, some have argued that since his father was considered as a Muslim, that Barack Obama is considered to be one too by birth, even if he never embraced Islam. Thus, in that sense he may be considered as some as a Muslim.

Furthermore, notice the following report:

Barack Obama joined Muslim prayers at school, teacher says

 

The Australian - Nov 8, 2010

 

AS a schoolboy in Jakarta, Barack Obama attended Muslim prayer sessions with his classmates against the wishes of his mother.

The US President's former grade three teacher said that Mr Obama - who was known as "Barry" when he attended the Menteng One school in Jakarta - studied the Koran and went to classes on Islam, despite the objections of Ann Dunham, a Catholic. (The Times.

http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/world/barack-obama-joined-muslim-prayers-at-school-teacher-says/story-e6frg6so-1225949239614)

Whether he attended prayer sessions to learn about Islam or to fit in, apparently Barack Obama was more involved in Islam that his mother wanted him to be.

Is Barack Obama a Muslim sympathizer?

The answer to that question is yes he seems to be. Since he did grow up in Muslim Indonesia and had more early Muslim contacts than anyone else ever elected as President of the United States, he would probably have more reasons than most U.S. presidents to have sympathy for Muslim perspectives. Here is some of what Barack Obama's "Fight the Smears" website quotes about this:

Newsweek...Obama’s only personal contact with Islam came as a boy when he moved to Jakarta, Indonesia, with a stepfather who mixed his Islam with Hindu and Animist traditions...

Boston Globe...His Kenyan paternal grandfather and Indonesian stepfather were Muslim...

Thus, while the selected quotes seem to have been intended by the Obama campaign to minimize his ties to Islam, Barack Obama had more early ties to Islam than any ever elected to becoming President of the United States. He also repeated his full name, Barack Hussein Obama, the 2 times I heard him on his inauguration as USA president (seemingly emphasizing the common Islamic name "Hussein").

President Obama's support of the Muslim Brotherhood (see Obama Administration supporting objectives of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt) is a major concern as the goal of that group is to have an Islamic caliphate from Spain to Indonesia.  This is not something a real Christian would think should be supported. I am not saying that he is a Muslim, but his approach towards them differs than all past USA presidents.

And of course, Barack Obama has made public gestures supportive of Islam (like participating in Ramadan-related activities) and the Hindu faith (he carries and monkey-god charm and in November 2010 danced at a Diwali celebration). This suggests that he is neither Muslim or Christian as one true to either of those faiths would not carry a pagan deity as a good-luck charm (see also Barack Obama Carries Hindu Monkey God).

But irrespective of what faith he may actually hold, it seems that his policies may lead to greater cooperation between the Arabic and non-Arabic Muslim nations which at some point in time must end up with a leader (which the Shiites call a Mahdi) that the Bible shows will be the Future King of the South.

Notice the following reports which confirm his international involvement with Islam:

Obama plans major address in Islamic capital

AFP - Dec 10, 2008 WASHINGTON, (AFP) –

President-elect Barack Obama plans to give "a major address" in an Islamic capital soon after taking office as he seeks to mend America's image in the Muslim world, a Chicago Tribune interview said.

"I think we've got a unique opportunity to reboot America's image around the world and also in the Muslim world in particular," Obama said in the interview published late Tuesday on the Tribune's website.

Obama promised an "unrelenting" desire to "create a relationship of mutual respect and partnership in countries and with peoples of good will who want their citizens and ours to prosper together."

The world "is ready for that message." ...

Obama also said he would be sworn on January 20 using his full name, Barack Hussein Obama. http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20081210/pl_afp/uspoliticsobamadiplomacyislam_081210083044

'Building bridges': Obama courts Muslims

In Indonesia, president says that he can't 'completely eliminate some of the ... mistrust'

JAKARTA, Indonesia — President Barack Obama said on Tuesday that Washington's effort to reach out to the Muslim world was earnest...

Obama arrived in Indonesia  — his home for four years of his youth...using the most populous Muslim nation to reach out to the Islamic world.

Obama called his administration's efforts to repair relations with Muslims "earnest, sustained."...

Obama's stepfather was Muslim, and during his time in Indonesia Obama occasionally studied the Quran and visited a local mosque. Although Obama is Christian, that background helped foster enduring rumors in the U.S. about the president's religion.  http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/40082730/ns/politics-white_house/

So from early on, Barack Obama has often signaled that he is taking a somewhat more inclusive approach with Islamic peoples than any prior US president. And he has continued to do so throughout his presidency.

And this has continued:

Obama: Muslims Built 'The Very Fabric of Our Nation'
 
July 28, 2014
 
On Sunday, President Obama and First Lady Michelle released a statement thanking Muslim Americans for their many “achievements and contributions… to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy.”

The comments were made to mark the celebration of Eid-al-Fitr, a time of spiritual renewal for Muslims which comes at the end of the month-long fast of Ramadan. The Obamas said in their statement that Eid “celebrates the common values that unite us in our humanity” and “welcomed their commitment to giving back to their communities.” The International Business Times reports that during Eid, Muslims join in Islamic prayer, while saying "Allahu Akbar," or "God is Great," and feasting.

The statement further reads that the administration “wishes Muslims in the United States and around the world a blessed and joyous celebration.” The letter ended with salutation of “Eid Mubarak,” which roughly means “blessed celebration.”http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/07/28/Obama-Celebrates-Muslim-Contributions-to-the-USA

This is different than any previous USA president.

Much more on his affiliation with Islam is found in the book Barack Obama, Prophecy, and the Destruction of the United States-Second Edition for Second Obama Term.

Is Barack Obama an Imperial President?

The January 27, 2014 edition of Christian Science Monitor Weekly reports the following about the presidency of Barack Obama:

Is Barack Obama an imperial president?…

Obama, a former constitutional law professor, was once skeptical of the aggressive use of presidential power. During the 2008 campaign, he accused President George W. Bush of regularly circumventing Congress. Yet as president, Obama has grown increasingly bold in his own use of executive action, at times to controversial effect.

The president (or his administration) has unilaterally changed elements of the Affordable Care Act (ACA); declared an anti-gay-rights law unconstitutional; lifted the threat of deportation for an entire class of undocumented immigrants; bypassed Senate confirmation of controversial nominees; waived compliance requirements in education law; and altered the work requirements under welfare reform. This month, the Obama administration took the highly unusual step of announcing that it will recognize gay marriages performed in Utah – even though Utah itself says it will not recognize them while the issue is pending in court.

Early in his presidency, Obama also expanded presidential warmaking powers, surveillance of the American public, and extrajudicial drone strikes on alleged terrorists outside the United States, including Americans – going beyond Mr. Bush’s own global war on terror following 9/11. But more recently, he has flexed his executive muscle more on domestic policy.

In the process, Obama’s claims of executive authority have infuriated opponents, while emboldening supporters to demand more on a range of issues, from immigration and gay rights to the minimum wage and Guantánamo Bay prison camp.

To critics, Obama is the ultimate “imperial president,” willfully violating the Constitution to further his goals, having failed to convince Congress of the merits of his arguments.  http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Politics/2014/0126/Is-Barack-Obama-an-imperial-president

The above article is actually fairly long, and there are more examples in it.

Let me simply state that, overall, US Presidents have tended to take more power to themselves and rarely are they stopped by Congress or the Supreme Court (both of which could intervene according to the Constitution of the USA).  In my view, the presidents have, though they take an oath to protect and defend the US Constitution, tend to look for ways around it to suit their agendas.

While the USA is supposed to have a lot of checks and balances, and brags to the world about them, in reality many no longer seem to work as the framers of the US Constitution seemingly intended.  And this is another reason why the USA comes across as a hypocritical nation.  That will be deadly to the USA in the future:

5 O Assyrian, the rod of mine anger, and the staff in their hand is mine indignation.

6 I will send him against an hypocritical nation, and against the people of my wrath will I give him a charge, to take the spoil, and to take the prey, and to tread them down like the mire of the streets.  (Isaiah 10:5-6, KJV)

The Bible shows that a European/Assyrian power will rise up and be used to punish the USA and its Anglo-Saxon allies.

The Bible itself also warns against pushing the homosexual agenda (Romans 1:18-32) and as the article Christian Science Monitor Weekly indicates, Barack Obama has dones this in new and not particularly constitutional ways.

Eight Reasons Why Barack Obama is Apocalyptic

Apparently because of his stance on abortion and cultural issues, in November 2008, a Catholic Cardinal claimed that Barack Obama was "aggressive, disruptive and apocalyptic" (see Cardinal: Obama Apocalyptic).

How may Barack Obama be “apocalyptic”?  Here are 8 possible ways, eight reasons why:

  1. The timing of his election.  It may be that there are only two presidential terms left before the Great Tribulation (Does God Have a 6,000 Year Plan? What Year Does the 6,000 Years End?) and the fulfillment of related prophecies in the Book of Revelation (called the Apocalypse by most Catholics).  Barack Obama’s very presence (as well as his planned and unplanned actions) should be enough to enable the fulfillment of various end-time prophecies.

  2. As one with a Luo Kenyan father, Barack Obama (see also Kenya Rejoices as Obama Wins) may be part of the fulfillment of Deuteronomy 28:43.

  3. Since the Roe vs. Wade pro-abortion decision, the USA has became the greatest debtor nation in the history of humankind.  Since the USA owes alien nations trillions of dollars, it appears that the curse in Deuteronomy 28:44 of having to borrow from aliens is happening to it now. President Barack Obama has put forth economic policies that greatly increased that debt (see President Obama Forgot the Bible).  Yet, the Bible specifically warns that increasing national debt like this will lead to destruction at the appointed time of the end in Habakkuk 2:3,6-8 (see also Anglo - America in Prophecy).

  4. One of the first actual changes that Barack Obama implemented was reversing one or more executive orders that will likely lead to more abortions (see Obama’s Abortion Changes).  Yet, abortion is wrong (see Abortion, the Bible, and a Woman’s Right to Choose) and a terrible national sin. And on March 9, 2009 lifted a ban on embryonic stem cell research (see Stem Cells) another morally wrong sin. He stopped defending the "Defense of Marriage Act" and took other steps to increase the homosexual agenda in the US military and elsewhere. Leaders who contribute to moral decline risk getting their nation being brought low (1 Chronicles 28:19)

  5. To a great degree, women put him in power (see Women Chose Barack Obama).  The Bible specifically warns about women ruling over a nation (Isaiah 3:12).  The highest cabinet post in Barack Obama’s administration went to Hillary Clinton.  Two of his top economic advisors are also women (see Obama Picks Two More Women). Barack Obama also often needed to heed the advice of Nancy Pelosi, former Speaker of the US House of Representatives (who has been criticized for her pro-abortion stance, see Vatican Official Says No to Biden and Pelosi, But Not to Palin). The only person in the Bible named "Barak" relied to heavily upon women (cf. Judges 4:4-9).

  6. In a policy shift from past administrations, Barack Obama has pledged increased cooperation with the Europeans, including strengthening their defense (see Obama Proving Apocalyptic).  This cooperation is likely to lead to the rise of the prophesied King of the North, who is to be the final leader of the Beast of Revelation.

  7. Barack Obama has called for increased dialogue with those considered as enemies of the USA.  Even some Shiite Muslims believe that his presidency may lead to the rise of their Mahdi (see Barack Obama in Islamic Prophecy?), who seems to be the same person that the Bible calls the King of the South. His Administration has given support to the Muslim Brotherhood, a group working for a multi-national Islamic empire called a caliphate (see also The Arab and Islamic World In the Bible, History, and Prophecy)

  8. An increase of military action in Afghanistan, which candidate Barack Obama continually called for, and President Obama implemented, helps stretch USA military commitments--despite winding that down, Afghanistan will likely end up with much Taliban influence--and this what money was spent to try to eliminate.  In 2009 I wrote, "Because of domestic economic concerns and international pressures, Barack Obama is likely to shift priorities away from defense spending and encourage the Europeans to increase their military might"--and this has already began to happen.  This trend will help lead to the destruction of the United States, when the Europeans are ready and the USA is not.

The truth is that Barack Obama often seems well meaning and he is trying to encourage the Americans to back him as he works on his economic agenda.  Americans are so concerned about the economy and how they perceive their personal needs that most do not care that the policies that Barack Obama implemented within his first weeks of office resulted in more abortions, and other policies have encouraged other sins in this nation.

Although Barack Obama personally will not cause the end of the world, he has taken steps that will help lead to the end of the world as we know it--he is taking steps that will help lead to the Great Tribulation. And that will not be good for the United States.

In my book Barack Obama, Prophecy, and the Destruction of the United States-Second Edition for Second Obama Term I have more than doubled the reasons (17 are specifically shown) that Barack Obama is apocalyptic (as compared to my 2009 book on 2012) as his actions and statements have provided additional proofs as to why he is apocalyptic. In his second term he will fulfill various predictions in Barack Obama, Prophecy, and the Destruction of the United States-Second Edition for Second Obama Term , and he has already (since his re-election) made statements that align with predictions in that book.

Furthermore, the Bible specifically warns of problems for those who support violating biblical morality and endorsing homosexuality even if they do not participate in such acts themselves (Romans 1:18-32)--Barack Obama has been doing this. Despite its military power, the destruction of the USA is prophesied (Daniel 11:39; Habakkuk 2:6-8).

The debt situation that Barack Obama was partially encouraged for the USA is putting it at risk of being unable to recover should it be hit by weather problems, terrorist acts, war, riots, solar flares, severe earthquakes, civil unrest, devastation of their genetically-modified food supplies, food shortages, and/or various pestilences–an intensity of “sorrows” such as Jesus discussed in Matthew 24:4-8 leading up to the time of the Great Tribulation.   Disasters such as pestilences, especially if there is an ElectroMagnetic Pulse (emp) attack or a severe solar flare storm, could be part of a so-called “perfect storm” of events that could set the USA for destruction.

Notice the following prophecy which shows that destruction comes after pestilence:

4 What the chewing locust left, the swarming locust has eaten;
What the swarming locust left, the crawling locust has eaten;
And what the crawling locust left, the consuming locust has eaten.

5 Awake, you drunkards, and weep;
And wail, all you drinkers of wine,
Because of the new wine,
For it has been cut off from your mouth.
6 For a nation has come up against My land,
Strong, and without number;
His teeth are the teeth of a lion,
And he has the fangs of a fierce lion. (Joel 1:4-6)

Many sorrows that the U.S.A. will face, like severe weather problems, diseases and earthquakes, will happen irrespective of who is in the White House (Amos 4:7-10; Luke 21:11).  Bible prophecy shows that no matter who is the next U.S.A. president (or possible successors), the King of the North and King of the South will rise up and the U.S.A. will be ultimately destroyed unless national repentance happens.  Barack Obama, and some others however, may hasten the day of destruction.

Barack Obama's Administration is Leading to World War III

Believe it or not, since Barack Obama has become USA president, the USA has taken numerous steps to push the Germans and other Europeans to be able to start WIII.

Back in the Summer of 2009, I had a book published that warned:

Barack Obama has pledged increased cooperation with the Europeans.  And while cooperation is normally a good thing, this particular cooperation is likely to lead to the rise of the prophesied King of the North, who is to be the final leader of the Beast of Revelation (Revelation 13:1).  Unlike previous U.S. administrations, President Obama’s administration has declared that it will encourage and support increases in Europe’s own military, far beyond what Presidents Bush or Clinton were willing to consider. (Thiel B. 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect. Nazarene Books, 2009, pp. 131-132, 147)

Has that been happening?

Here is a list of ten steps that the Obama Administration has taken that is leading to the rise of the Beast of the sea, the final King of the North of Bible prophecy:

  1. Encouraged the Final Approval of the Lisbon Treaty. On October 15, 2009 it was reported that Czech President Vaclav Klaus was the lone EU leader still opposed to the Lisbon Treaty (Waterfield B. Czech President Vaclav Klaus ‘to continue’ lone resistance to Lisbon Treaty.  Telegraph, October 15, 2009.  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/czechrepublic/6329690/Czech-President-Vaclav-Klaus-to-continue-lone-resistance-to-Lisbon-Treaty.html).

    The Obama administration worked to get the Lisbon Treaty approved as President Obama “wants a strong and united Europe” (Source: Baldwin T, Reid T., Coates S. Obama Administration worried about Cameron effect in Europe.  The Times, October 21, 2009. http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/politics/article6883075.ece#cid=OTC-RSS&attr=797093).

    On October 23, 2009, the USA sent Vice President Joseph Biden to the Czech Republic in order to apply provide secutiry assurances as well as to apply pressure to the Czech government to sign the agreement for a European empire to form (U.S. foreign policy aware of threats – Havel after meeting Biden.  CTK, October 23, 2009. http://www.ceskenoviny.cz/news/zpravy/u-s-foreign-policy-aware-of-threats-havel-after-meeting-biden/404375).  This could have had some limited influence on some of the Czech leadership.

    Once its then President Klaus signed it, he announced with disappointment that he had just signed away the sovereignty of the Czech Republic. The Czech Republic was the only hold-out for the agreement and if the Czech Republic had not then signed it, the agreement would have expired. Instead the USA applied pressure to form a more complete European government that will ultimately change and become the Beast power of Revelation 13:1-10 and will take over the USA as prophesied in Daniel 11:39.

    On November 3, 2009, Agence France Presse (AFP) reported that USA President Barack Obama publicly expressed his support for the Czech President’s signing of the Lisbon Treaty and for now having a  ’strengthened’ EU (Obama welcomes ‘strengthened’ EU. AFP, November 3, 2009.  http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5hJ8OzJSh0xfKow8z47RGCYQu1nsg).

    The European nations became part of the new empire called for the European Union on December 1, 2009 with Herman Von Rompuy as its “first permanent president” (EU Constitution Comes into Force.  Voice of America,  December 1, 2009. http://www1.voanews.com/english/news/europe/EU-Constitution-78224062-01DEC09-.html).  

  2. Encouraged German Funding of Greece. When the new agreement was a risk of falling apart because of problems with Greece. The New York Times reported that on May 10, 2010, President Obama called German Chancellor Merkel and told her that Europe needed an overwhelming financial rescue for the sake of its unity, and she apparently heeded that suggestion. (Erlanger S, Benhold K, Sanger D. Debt Aid Package for Europe Took Nudge From Washington. The New York Times, May 10, 2010.   (http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/11/business/global/11reconstruct.html). This kept the union of Europeans, dominated by Germany, together.

    On November 10, 2010, EU President Herman van Rompuy declared that in Europe the "time of the homogeneous nation state is over" (Johnson D. The end of Britain as a nation state? Not on your life, Mr Van Rompuy.  Daily Mail, November 11, 2010. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-1328579/Herman-Van-Rompuy-The-end-Britain-nation-state.html).  Full political union is expected in the next decade by many leaders (Willis A.  Germany predicts EU 'political union' in 10 years.  EU Observer, December 13, 2010.  http://euobserver.com/9/31485) and some want it much  sooner (Czuczka T. Parker B.  Merkel Risks EU Clash Over Political Union Push.  Blommberg, November 14, 2011.  http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-11-14/merkel-risks-eu-clash-over-political-union-push-to-end-europe-debt-crisis.html).  It has been reported that the “EU is an empire” (Baudet T.  The EU is an empire, and empires mean war. NRC Handelsblad, Press Europ, July 9, 2012.  http://www.presseurop.eu/en/content/article/2300601-eu-empire-and-empires-mean-war).

    This is an empire the Barack Obama has been supporting.

    In December 2010, it was announced USA made “an extra commitment of money” to support the EU and it was also reported that the “United States, has committed 250 billion euros to the EFSF” (European Financial Stability Facility) to support the euro and economic structure of the European Union (US Ready to Back Bigger EU Stability Fund: Official.  Reuters, December 1, 2010.  http://www.reuters.com/article/2010/12/01/eu-us-efsf-idUSLDE6B023Z20101201).  "US believes it’s time Germany stepped up and started acting like a regional and even a global leader" and Barack Obama publicly stated, "The world today does not fear a strong Germany"  (DJW.  Media roundup: Barack gives Angie a push.  The Local, June 8, 2011 http://www.thelocal.de/opinion/20110608-35537.html).

  3. To Rely on Europe's GPS for Defense. Back in 2009, I warned that the USA was having problems with its GPS system and may decide it needed to rely on Europe's upcoming Galileo system for its own military defense:

    "the Europeans are planning on having their own global positioning system (GPS), called Galileo, available for military applications. This will allow the Europeans to track the world and attack others without relying on the U.S.A.’s GPS. This will be the first time in the 21st century that Europeans will be able to have that type of independent military capability. Furthermore, according to a 2009 report from the U.S. government, the U.S. Air Force may have to start relying on the European Galileo system (at least to a degree) beginning in 2013, as the U.S. GPS capabilities are expected to deteriorate by then (other problems are also appearing in the newer U.S. satellites). Because the Europeans will be able to control Galileo, they will also likely be capable of derailing certain sophisticated U.S. military applications.  This will give the Europeans a unique defensive (as well as offensive) capability that no others on the planet will have.  (Thiel B. 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect. Nazarene Books, 2009, p. 85)

    Because of concerns about China, Reuters reported on February 4, 2010, “The U.S. Defense Department is linking its Global Positioning System with Europe’s Galileo, another space-based global navigation satellite system. GPS will feature a new military signal called M-code to boost anti-jamming, facilitate secure access and increase the local signal strength.” (Wolf J. US, wary of China, mulls satellite substitutes.  Reuters, February 4, 2010. http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSN0411054720100205).

    This linking will essentially guarantee that the USA will have a portion of their military response ability controlled by the Europeans.  Galileo initially had critics as there were “early objections from the Americans who thought a rival system to GPS might be used to attack its armed forces” (Amos J. EU awards Galileo satellite-navigation contracts.  BBC, Jan 7, 2010. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi /science/nature/8442090.stm). 

    The “brain” of the Galileo satellite system was shipped to Rome on April 26, 2010 (First EU Navigation Satellite Payload Shipped.  Red Orbit, 26 April 2010. http://www.redorbit.com/news/space/1855166/first_eu_ navigation_satellite_payload_shipped/ /science/nature/8442090.stm).  On July 31, 2010, it was announced that the USA would, indeed, do this (see USA GPS and EU Galileo linking was expected ). This is all the more astounding because the USA was initially opposed to Europe developing Galileo because it felt this could be used against the USA. Now, the USA is partially-dependent upon it, and in the event of war with Europe, the USA will not be able to effectively communicate or counter-strike because of this.

  4. Pivoting Away from Defending Europe. The 'pivot' that the USA and its ally Canada have been doing towards defending Asia as it has been called since at least 2012 (see Canadian and USA Shifting Military Power to Asia), has resulted in a pivot away from Europe. The Germans and others in Europe are realizing that the USA is not intending to defend them as before, hence the USA is pushing them to arm themselves.

  5. Pushing the Europeans to Develop Their Military. In 2012, US Defense Secretary Panetta made public calls for the Europeans to increase their military strength and spending (Carmichael L. Europe Needs To Invest In Defense, Too: U.S..  Defense News, February 4, 2012. http://www.defensenews.com/article/20120204/DEFREG02/302040001/Europe-Needs-Invest-Defense-Too-U-S-?odyssey=mod|newswell|text|FRONTPAGE|p).  In the Spring of 2014, the Obama Administration again called for Europe (meaning to a great degree Germany) to increase their military spending (see Obama tries to provide assurances to Europe while pushing for increased European military spending). Increasing military spending will turn out to be the destructive to the USA (cf. Daniel 11:39). This is very dangerous.

  6. Removal of Tanks from Germany. In 2013, the USA removed the last of its tanks from Germany (see There are no longer USA tanks in Germany: Do Americans understand this is a serious risk?). By having no tanks on the ground, this means that the USA will not have the ground-force power to fight against Germany in the event of a war against the USA, should some elements of the US Army attempt to do that.

  7. Agreement to Share Espionage and Techniques. Because of the Snowden leaks in 2013, US President Barack Obama promised to turn over to Germany all of its espionage techiques etc., as well as to reduce espionage against Germany (see Germany most upset by USA espionage). This will give the Germans a major advantage over the USA. If you know how your enemy spies and what it spies on, you can take steps to protect secrets.

  8. Cessation of Chancellor Merkel's Cellular Telephone Conversations. Barack Obama agreed to no longer allow listening in on the cell phone of German Chancellor Angela Merkel after she complained (Merkel angered by USA allegedly listening in on her cell phone and EU summit to discuss USA spying), and presumably will not do this for her replacement (s). This will reduce the ability of the USA to understand what is going on when Germany is coordinating an attack in the future. While this may not seem to be important, it could prove disastrous.

  9. Allowing the Loss of Crimea. While Barack Obama did make stronger statements than some European leaders related to Crimea (e.g. Russia controls Crimea; Obama talks to Putin–Putin defiant; Obama dissed by many), the reality is that they did not stop Russia. Although Barack Obama and Germany's Angela Merkel called the annexation "unacceptable" (Merkel, Obama call Crimea grab 'unacceptable' Agence France-Presse, March 18, 2014. http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news/afp/140318/merkel-obama-call-crimea-grab-unacceptable) it is clear to the Germans that the USA has accepted it (Germany still wants Crimea back). Europe and the Germans are concluding that they will need their own military deterrents to Russia to stop further incursions into territories that they want to be part of the European Union. The Europeans are moving ahead with military technology (see European Technology and the Beast of Revelation ), and this will give them further motivation.

  10. Giving Europeans Control Over More of the USA Military. As far as control of the military, the first non-American, French General  Stéphane Abrial became the “Commander of the Allied Command Transformation” of NATO in Europe in September, 2009 (French General Takes Over Key NATO Command In U.S.  RTT News, September 10, 2009.http://www.rttnews.com/ArticleView. aspx?Id=1062869; http://www.nato.int/cps/
    en/natolive/topics_50114.htm
    ). He was replaced by another French General, Jean-Paul Paloméros. So, this is another part of the military no longer under USA control.In the Summer of 2014, the Obama Administration placed a German general over the entire US Army in Europe (see German general now commands the US Army in Europe).

    In August 2014, the Obama Administration placed a German general, Brig. Gen. Markus Laubenthal (formerly commander of the 12th Armored Brigade in Amberg and chief of staff for the international security assistance force regional command north in Afghanistan), the chief of staff for U.S. Army Europe. This means that the Europeans will have much more control over the military over the USA than most have imagined.

And the above are steps that are publicly known. These steps will help Europe when it finally decides to start WWIII; watch also the video 10 Steps Obama Has Taken Leading to the Rise of the Beast. There may also be other steps that have not been publicly revealed. This will not end well for the USA. See also World War III: Steps in Progress.

Does Barack Obama have the Most Open or Hypocritical Administration?

When originally campaigning to become US president, Barack Obama pledged to have a different, more open, adminstration. After becoming US President, Barack Obama wrote:

My Administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government.  We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation, and collaboration. Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and effectiveness in Government. (Obama B. Transparency and Open Government. Federal Register. As shown at http://www.whitehouse.gov/the_press_office/TransparencyandOpenGovernment on July 6, 2013)

Yet, with all the scandals and coverups since 2009, this seems quite inaccurate and hypocritical.

The Bible actually warns that God will send a European-based power against a hypocritical nation:

5 O Assyrian, the rod of mine anger, and the staff in their hand is mine indignation. 6 I will send him against an hypocritical nation, and against the people of my wrath will I give him a charge, to take the spoil, and to take the prey, and to tread them down like the mire of the streets. 7 Howbeit he meaneth not so, neither doth his heart think so; but it is in his heart to destroy and cut off nations not a few. 8 For he saith, Are not my princes altogether kings? 9 Is not Calno as Carchemish? is not Hamath as Arpad? is not Samaria as Damascus? 10 As my hand hath found the kingdoms of the idols, and whose graven images did excel them of Jerusalem and of Samaria; 11 Shall I not, as I have done unto Samaria and her idols, so do to Jerusalem and her idols? (Isaiah 10:5-11)

Notice that the above says that while the Assyrian (European) power does not think it wants to be warlike, that it really is internally, and will act that way (a video of related interest may be Can You Prove that the Beast to Come is European?).

With the revelations of USA spying on the Europeans and others, many are noticing this aspect of hypocrisy by the Obama Administration (see the news post Germany most upset by USA espionage and also the video Will USA Spying Help the Beast Power?). This does not bode well for the USA.

Face the Nation

On July 14, 2013, on the CBS television program Face the Nation, the host, Bob Schieffer, raised various issues.

Bob Schieffer “fears the messes made by Washington are damaging our brand worldwide.” He also “reflects that “America has always led best when we led by example,” but it’s struggling to do that now.”

That is true and the Obama Administration has played a major role in this since 2009.

Between the IRS scandals (see Scandals in the US government), espionage scandals (see It’s not paranoia: The USA government is engaged in massive surveillance on its citizens and others; Germany applauds Snowden.), Benghazi (see Scandals in the US government), debt crisis (see USA ‘budget deal’ problems and ramifications), being repeatedly involved in military conflicts around the world, promoting violence in sports and entertainment (see Is American Football Evil?), exporting pornography (see Celebrity Porn: AOL Please Stop Featuring It and Entertainment has a growing pornography problem and British and American Moral Decay), trying to promote and fund abortion internationally (Obama’s First 100 Days), trying promoting homosexuality internationally (USA government promoting homosexual pride parades internationally and Corruption reportedly up worldwide; Obama’s immoral views denounced in Kenya), etc., the USA is not setting the right example.

Yet, historically, the big names at CBS have supported the Obama Administration. Apparently some are having doubts and noticing hypocrisy.

Many outside the USA also consider that the USA is hypocritical because of some of these and other matters. This does not bode well for the USA (see. Isaiah 10:5-11).

Barack Obama himself has a serious credibility problem. Notice:

July 13, 2014

Mr Obama shares one problem that could cripple what remains of his presidency – most people no longer trust him. The sentiment spans foreign allies as well as domestic critics. When trust goes, respect is seldom far behind.

The most surprising example is Germany. It was in Berlin in 2008 that then Senator Obama unveiled his global promise – an America that could once again be trusted. Germans no longer believe it. In the wake of the “friendly spying” ring allegations, less than 40 per cent of Germans consider the US a trustworthy partner, according to one survey. ...

Senior German figures cannot agree whether Mr Obama was unaware of Washington’s double agents, or dissembling. Either way, when Mr Obama spoke to Angela Merkel the day before the initial revelations he did not raise it. It was enough to make you want to cry, said Wolfgang Schäuble, the finance minister. Never before has a close US ally expelled a CIA station chief.,,,

Mr Obama promises something will happen – say a tightening of data surveillance safeguards, or a drive to overhaul US immigration policy – people are no longer inclined to take him at his word. They may believe he means what he says. But they do not trust his ability to deliver. ...

Most Americans say they no longer personally trust Mr Obama. And fewer than 30 per cent express trust in the office of the presidency. ...

According to Mark Knoller, who chronicles the habits of US presidents, Mr Obama has now played golf 179 times – considerably more than George W Bush, his golf-loving predecessor. Mr Obama dislikes spending time with fellow politicians. But he seems happy to attend endless fundraisers. He has now clocked up 393 fundraising events since becoming president, almost double that of Mr Bush.

If you seek an explanation for why Mr Obama riles so many voters, the perception of double standards is at the root of the problem.

http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/f0776136-08ee-11e4-9d3c-00144feab7de.html

Barack Obama's apparent hypocrisy is a problem. This is and the espionage are serious problems. This will not simply be forgotten by the Germans after Barack Obama is no longer the USA president (see also Germany in Biblical and Catholic Prophecy) ultimately it will help lead to World War III (see also World War III: Steps in Progress).

Ecumenical Barack Obama?

Barack Obama supports an ecumenical agenda. As mentioned before, he admits to carrying a Hindu monkey god in his pocket (see (see Barack Obama Carries Hindu Monkey God).

He also has made ecumenical public statements (e.g. Barack Obama makes an ecumenical appeal). He also visited the Pope as he and Pope Francis share certain economic and ecumenical objectives (see Barack Obama meets Pope Francis at Vatican: mutual interest in a new world economic order).

Such ecumenical plans are dangerous for everyone (watch the YouTube video video Should you be concerned about the ecumenical movement?), including Protestants (read Beware: Protestants Going Towards Ecumenical Destruction! and/or watch the video Charismatic Kenneth Copeland and Anglican Tony Palmer: Protestants Beware!) and Catholics (read Why Should American Catholics Fear Unity with the Orthodox?).

While Barack Obama seems ecumenical, his popularly has dropped in the USA:

July 2, 2014

A third of voters think Barack Obama is the worst president since World War II, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday. George W. Bush came in second, with 28 percent naming him as the worst recent president, followed by Richard Nixon with 13 percent. (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/07/02/obama-rating-presidents_n_5551102.html?&icid=maing-grid7%7Chtmlws-main-bb%7Cdl1%7Csec1_lnk3%26pLid%3D496694)

The USA media tends to support Barack Obama, yet many there have doubts and concerns that they seldom broadcast/publish.

Predictions About Barack Obama are Coming to Pass

Chapter 8 of my other book 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect is titled Barack Obama, Islam, and the End of America. Since my book came out in 2009, at least 12 predictions related to the Barack Obama Administration have already some to pass (you can watch the following YouTube for more details on some of them 2012 - Ten Fulfilled Barack Obama Prophecies).

President Obama needs our prayers.  The Apostle Paul wrote:

1 Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. 3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth (1 Timothy 2:1-4).

Without national repentance, the United States is doomed for destruction--and it may now be too late for that.  The focus needs to be on turning to the God of the Bible and not simply on the hope that President Obama (or his replacement) will somehow stave off economic disaster for any number of years while ignoring the nation’s sins.

But irrespective of what he does or does not do, because of the timing of his presidency, it appeared to me years ago that (probably inadvertently) Barack Obama would help set the stage for the ecumenical King of the North, the Muslim King of the South, and even (though more indirectly) the final ecumenical one known as Antichrist. And for those first two, and in other ways, he has definitely done that.

In many ways, Barack Obama is prophetic.

You obviously already have concerns about the USA, if you can handle the truth about what is coming, please get Barack Obama, Prophecy, and the Destruction of the United States-Second Edition for Second Obama Term.
