And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God. (Revelation 20:4a – emphasis mine)
How long has it been since human beings were beheaded — during the late 18th century’s bloody and infamous French Revolution? Or was it the early 20th century’s grisly genocide of Armenian Christians, committed by the Ottoman Turks? John the Apostle foretold a day when beheadings would become commonplace – a day just prior to the Lord’s return:
When He (the Lamb or Jesus Christ) opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held. And they cried with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” Then a white robe was given to each of them; and it was said to them that they should rest a little while longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their brethren, who would be killed as they were, was completed. (Revelation 6:9-11)
Journalists have pointed to US involvement with ISIS, and Obama himself has admitted to training ISIS in Iraq. Have other confessions been made by any credible US insiders?
US support for ISIS has been admitted by officials at the highest levels of power. In an interview hosted by Mehdi Hasan of Al Jazeera, the former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency in the US, Michael T. Flynn, reveals that the Obama administration was warned about the potential for extreme groups to gain influence in the region. However, instead of halting support for the Syrian opposition, the administration took the “willful decision” to support the rebels anyway:
Here is an excerpt from the transcript (see section: SHOW MORE):
Hasan (Interviewer): You are basically saying that even in government at the time, you knew those groups were around, you saw this analysis, and you were arguing against it, but who wasn’t listening?”
Flynn: “I think the administration.”
Hasan (Interviewer): “So the administration turned a blind eye to your analysis?”
Flynn: “I don’t know if they turned a blind eye. I think it was a decision, a willful decision.”
Hasan (Interviewer): “A willful decision to support an insurgency that had Salafists, Al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood?”
Flynn: “A wilful decision to do what they’re doing… You have to really ask the President what is it that he actually is doing with the policy that is in place, because it is very, very confusing.”
US ‘hawk’ mouthpieces site justifications like the following for their treacherous ISIS support, and the support of its predecessor, Al Qaeda:
- Support for Al Qaeda helped the US defeat the Soviet Union in Afghanistan.
- Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has killed thousands of his own people.
- Support of Sunni Muslim ISIS fighters is desirable in order to thwart Shia Muslim groups, Hezbollah as an example. Hezbollah is an enemy to US allies such as Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Israel.
Jesus warned his followers:
Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thorn bushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them. (Matthew 7:15-20)
If we apply the words of Jesus to the CIA, how would they fare? What would Barack Obama’s “tree” produce? Should we really believe the rhetoric that former UK-trained Ophthalmologist Bashar al-Assad is the Big Bad Dictator in Syria, and the CIA-backed, Barack Hussein Obama is the peace-loving moral Superior?
Evidence suggests the so-called “Free Syrian Army” supported by the Obama administration is in fact Al Qaeda. Author, researcher and political commentator Roger Stone writes concerning Bashar Al-Assad’s purported use of chemical weapons:
The chemical attacks on Syrian citizens on 21 August 2013 was meant to justify lobbing cruise missiles into Syria. Obama was ready, but Americans were not. And when the ploy was debunked by a 50-page dossier the Russians provided to the UN, they [the Obama Administration] resorted to “Plan B”, which was the creation of ISIS by the DIA.
The chemical weapons are widely believed to have been provided to the “rebels” by Prince Bandar of Saudi Arabia, to whom the Bush family refers as “Bandar Bush”. But recent releases of Hillary’s emails suggest that she was directing the transfer of weapons from Libya to Syria and chemical weapons may have been among them.
Who are we to believe? Whose “fruit” will remain?
These six things the Lord hates,
Yes, seven are an abomination to Him:
A proud look,
A lying tongue,
Hands that shed innocent blood,
A heart that devises wicked plans,
Feet that are swift in running to evil,
A false witness who speaks lies,
And one who sows discord among brethren. (Proverbs 6:16-19)
Barack Obama once joked about killing the Jonas Brothers, when he gleefully declared to a laughing audience, “I have two words for you, ‘predator drones.’ You will never see it coming.” and “you think I am joking”. Perhaps we should take Obama jokes seriously. The Washington Times wrote an article report which claims: “Obama-led drone strikes kill innocents 90% of the time” (emphasis mine).
The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. (John 10:10a)
A book published in 2014 by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, Double Down: Game Change 2012, claims President Obama has boasted to his White House aids: “I am really good at killing people“, and that our Nobel Peace Laureate is “proud” of killing people.
Apparently killing innocent men, women and children are easy for the President, however, killing ISIS and her accomplices are a little more difficult to swallow for the Peace Laureate. US Department of Defense admits to sending “warning” leaflets to truckers carrying ISIS-controlled oil:
In Al-Bukamal, we destroyed 116 tanker trucks, which we believe will reduce ISIL’s ability to transport its stolen oil products.
This is our first strike against tanker trucks, and to minimize risks to civilians, we conducted a leaflet drop prior to the strike. We did a show of force, by — we had aircraft essentially buzz the trucks at low altitude….
As you can see, it’s a fairly simple leaflet, it says, “Get out of your trucks now, and run away from them.” A very simple message. And then, also, “Warning: airstrikes are coming. Oil trucks will be destroyed. Get away from your oil trucks immediately. Do not risk your life.”
And so, these are the leaflets that we dropped — about 45 minutes before the airstrikes actually began. Again, we combine these leaflet drops with very low altitude passes of some of our attack aviation, which sends a very powerful message.
Much more can be written about US involvement inside the phenomenon we know as “Arab Spring”. Could it be safe to say that Barack Obama had a strong hand in the various Islamic countries falling to CIA-style regime changes, and many with a particularly Islamic transformation?
Why does this matter? How does this relate to Gog or the Antichrist? We can see that indeed one can be simultaneously, “a conqueror bent on conquest” as well as project an image of peace, “and by peace“, the conqueror “shall destroy many“.
Let us delve further into the attributes of Gog, whom some believe is the Old Testament version of the New Testament: Antichrist.
Walid Shoebat, former Muslim and Palestinian Terrorist, left Islam in 1994 after studying the Holy Bible with the expressed intention of disproving its text. Shoebat’s background in his own words can be found here: www.shoebat.com.
Shoebat wrote a very thorough expose, God’s War On Terror in which he reveals how “Gog” and the “Antichrist” in the Bible are one and the same person. Additionally, Shoebat posits that the Gog-Antichrist character has the very same attributes as the Islamic “Mahdi” – Islam’s awaited “Messiah” figure. To be fair, Shoebat does not suggest that Barack Obama is the Mahdi, nor by extension – the Gog-Antichrist. God’s War On Terror covers only the Antichrist system or kingdom, which Shoebat suggests is his former religion: Islam.
THE ANTICHRIST AND WOMEN
He shall regard neither the God of his fathers nor the desire of women, nor regard any god; for he shall exalt himself above them all. But in their place he shall honor a god of fortresses; and a god which his fathers did not know he shall honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and pleasant things. (Daniel 11:38)
There are two clues in this verse about the Old Testament character “Gog”. First, He shall not regard the desire of women. And second, he shall regard neither the God of his fathers, nor any god; he will replace them with the “god of fortresses”. Let us explore these prophetic descriptions separately.
He shall regard neither…the desire of women. (Daniel 11:38a)
About disregarding women’s desires, Walid Shoebat writes:
The Antichrist will have no regard for women’s rights. Women will have no voice in his empire….We have already seen Muslim countries in which women struggle to gain their desired rights. In Saudi Arabia, women struggle to acquire rights to drive a car. In Afghanistan, women struggle to gain a desired education. In Turkey, women struggle with laws attempting to gradually re-institute the Hijab….
Everywhere in the Muslim world, women struggle to gain rights to be equal to their male counterpart. Women’s rights in Islam are literally a fraction of what their male counterparts possess. According to Islamic law, a woman only inherits half of what a male inherits. In court, it takes the testimony of two women to equal the testimony of one man because Mohammed declared that women have half the mental capacity of a man. 4
Shoebat’s interpretation resonates with the intended meaning of the verse, but I also believe as some other Western scholars have suggested, but something Shoebat does not believe. Namely, the Antichrist will be homosexual.
Shoebat’s interpretation focuses on the “woman’s desire” itself. Indeed, the Antichrist will not honor or regard the woman’s desire (“desire” as the object of “woman”: a possessive noun). But additionally, when used as an expression (ie: ‘the state of desiring women’), the text can also read, “He shall not regard: “the desire of women” or “living straight” using modern vernacular. In this way, the Bible may contain a double-meaning for the verse: He shall regard neither…the desire of women.
Is Barack Obama a homosexual? How is it that the President twice refers to his wife as Michael?
Many scandals have plagued the President; they seem to follow him from Hawaii to Chicago. But perhaps none are as revealing as his alleged relationship with Larry Sinclair.
Lawrence W. Sinclair authored the book, Barack Obama & Larry Sinclair: Cocaine, Sex, Lies & Murder? Sinclair claims to have had sexual encounters with then Illinois Senator, Barack Obama during which they took cocaine. Sinclair decided to confront the campaigning Senator when he heard Obama claim drug abstinence since his “university days”. After leaving a message for the Barack Obama Democratic Campaign team, Sinclair allegedly received phone calls in return, specifically from a man named, “Mr. Young”. It was during one of these phone calls that Mr. Young indicated his relationship with Barack Obama was sexual in nature.
As it would turn out, Mr. Young was one of two men connected to Obama who were murdered just before the Obama campaign stepped into full swing. According to this post, three gay men attended Jeremiah Wright’s Trinity United Church of Christ, the same church attended by Barack Obama in Chicago. Each of the three man died in rapid succession, just before Obama’s 2008 Democratic National Campaign:
Larry Bland was murdered execution-style on November 17, 2007;
Donald Young was murdered execution-style on December 24, 2007;
Nate Spencer reportedly died of septicemia, pneumonia, and HIV on December 26, 2007.
Donald Young had been the Choir Director of Trinity United Church of Christ. The same post continues to tell the story of his mother:
Norma Jean Young revealed to The Globe that her son Donald, who was openly gay, was a “close friend” of Obama. Mrs. Young also believes the Chicago Police Department has not placed a high priority on finding the killers of her son….[She] told The Globe that, “There is more to the story,” adding, “I do believe they are shielding somebody or protecting someone.”
So there is credible evidence Barack Obama himself may be gay, and for the first time in American history, the US now strong-arms nations around the world to accept and even champion gay rights, using US foreign aid as his tool of choice. Barack Obama murders innocent people around the world with predator drones, and he has been instrumental in lighting the Middle East on fire with support for ISIS, arguably the most heinous and barbaric force since the middle ages.
But you may ask, isn’t Barack Obama a professed Christian? Remember Jesus’ words about knowing a person by their fruit; everything Obama does – his works – or the “fruits of his tree” benefits, promotes and glorifies Islam. And his words are not far behind:
THE GOD OF HIS FATHERS
He shall regard neither the God of his fathers…nor regard any god; for he shall exalt himself above them all. But in their place he shall honor a god of fortresses; and a god which his fathers did not know he shall honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and pleasant things.
Thus he shall act against the strongest fortresses with a foreign god, which he shall acknowledge, and advance its glory; and he shall cause them to rule over many, and divide the land for gain. (Daniel 11:38-39)
Gog will not “regard any god”. You may rightly ask, how then can he be Islamic? Shoebat explains:
Many Westerners believe that the Antichrist is an atheist…How could the Antichrist be an atheist if the next verse says, “he shall honor the God of fortresses?” (Daniel 11: 38) How does Antichrist honor a god of fortresses, or a god of war?…The Antichrist will show no regard for any other god (v. 37) except this foreign god whom his ancestors did not know, but which he will “advance his glory” [v. 39] by war. The text logically speaks for itself….What do Westerners think when they see the most important creed of Islam carried through their Jihad that says there is no god but Allah?
The Antichrist cannot be an atheist. This is also confirmed by the prophet Habakkuk. There the Antichrist breaks the peace treaty and proclaims war in the name of his god: “Then his mind changes and he transgresses; He commits offense, ascribing this power to his god” (Habakkuk 1: 11). He claims strength from his false god who promotes violence. The vision is “for the End-Times” (Habakkuk 2: 3)….
They want to put down all other gods and religions throughout the globe and advance their god through war. The text is clearly portraying what we see in Islam today; even when we read that he declares war “against the strongest fortresses.” What could that mean except what it plainly says— to declare war against the most powerful nations on earth? Jihadists already declared war on Europe and the U.S. However, the West seems oblivious to this fact. Who else could be as maniacal as Muslim fundamentalists to declare war on the powerful West? And it is all for the purpose of advancing their god, Allah. This is exactly what we see. How did the Bible predict all of this? Either the prophets guessed it perfectly, or indeed, there is an omniscient God. There is no third choice. 5
Indeed. Prior to Islam, the religions in the modern Islamic Middle Eastern countries ranged from polytheistic, to Coptic Christian in some areas of Egypt, Tengrism a type of Shamanism, and then Christianity in Turkey to Zoroastrianism in Iran. Interestingly, Kenya is considered a Christian country. Kenya is 90% Christian, and 10% Islamic. Assuming that Barack Obama’s father is Kenyan, he truly regards not the “God of his fathers“. Islam, the god of war took root, and it will indeed propel the Antichrist whose god “his fathers did not know”.
Does the Bible give any indication of the name of the Antichrist, either in word or code? Is Obama worshiped as a “Messiah” or religious figure? We will explore the answers to these questions and more in the final installment of Obama, Gog & the Antichrist.
