Barack Obama in Bible Prophecy
On Jan. 20, 2017, on his last day in the Oval Office, Barack Obama left a handwritten message for the incoming president. In it Mr. Obama told Donald Trump that America’s presidents are “guardians of those democratic institutions and traditions—like rule of law, separation of powers, equal protection and civil liberties—that our forebears fought and bled for. Regardless of the push and pull of daily politics, it’s up to us to leave those instruments of our democracy at least as strong as we found them.”
Mr. Obama’s note seems so noble and heartfelt. But it is one of the most diabolical and hypocritical messages ever written by a United States president. Barack Obama spent his tenure as president doing exactly what he warned Mr. Trump not to do. For eight years, he assaulted America’s “democratic institutions and traditions” in pursuit of his supreme goal to “fundamentally transform America.”
Why talk about this now, four years after Mr. Obama left office? Because this man continues to pursue his ambition to fundamentally transform America.
Barack Obama was at the epicenter of the election crisis and the radical left’s effort to prevent Donald Trump from being reelected!
The United States entered its greatest political crisis ever on Nov. 3, 2020, Election Day. To make Joe Biden president, the radical left flagrantly manipulated the nation’s voting system. Then for weeks, the mainstream media, at least half the public, most of the nation’s politicians (Democrats and Republicans), and much of the rest of the world believed Mr. Biden had been legitimately elected president.
But it was a giant lie. Mountains of evidence proved that this election was manipulated. At court hearings in multiple states, hundreds of witnesses gave firsthand accounts of all sorts of nefarious behavior. Thousands of witnesses signed affidavits alleging fraud. Prominent scientists and data analysts investigated the numbers and testified of the statistical impossibility of some vote counts. Electronic voting machines and software were audited and revealed dishonest activity. There was even video footage exposing obvious illicit behavior.
America’s entire electoral system is now in shambles. The nation will never have another secure, uncontested election. And it’s all because the radical left engaged in an unrestrained assault on America’s “democratic institutions and traditions,” including the Constitution and the rule of law. Hundreds, even thousands, of people and institutions were involved in this coup, directly or indirectly. Virtually all of America’s top media organizations and personalities were complicit, as well as the powerful tech companies and most of the nation’s top politicians.
But behind this vast network of lies, corruption and lawlessness, there stood one man: Barack Obama.
There is compelling evidence that Mr. Obama was not only aware of the plot to pervert this election, but was intimately connected with those pulling the strings. One thing is certain: This epic scandal was the result of Barack Obama’s leadership of the Democratic Party and the radical left.
Many have referred to this as a rolling coup, and they are right. This coup was initiated by Barack Obama before he left office in January 2017. Even as he was writing that “beautiful” message instructing Donald Trump to guard democracy and the rule of the law, this man was devising plans to overthrow Mr. Trump and return the radical left to the White House!
I want to show how the 2020 election crisis exposes Mr. Obama and his closest allies. Even more importantly, this crisis reveals the unseen but extremely potent force behind Mr. Obama and the radical Left. This crisis puts the spotlight on a crucial biblical prophecy, one I have been explaining since 2012 and that you must understand!
The Architect of Lawlessness
Since Election Day, the corruption and lawlessness in America’s politics and election system have been dramatically uncovered. This has exposed a massive lurch toward lawlessness in this nation. This has a cause we must understand.
There is a spiritual dimension to what the radical left is doing that we must also understand.
The Bible shows, in numerous passages, that there is an unseen evil spirit being influencing humanity. He is called “the Devil, and Satan,” and he is attacking all mankind, but especially those people who have a history with God. This evil spirit being has frightening power—power we can hardly imagine! This might sound like an extreme statement, but in these extreme and confusing times, doesn’t it at least warrant consideration? There is a lot at stake for America, and for you personally! Satan is most lawless being in the universe. God has blessed America like no other nation. And the devil wants to destroy America like no other nation! Satan is marshaling every tool and weapon he can to wreck this nation, and he is having alarming success!
Satan’s goal is to blot out the name of Israel “from under heaven”—from all over the Earth! That is his passion! And America is the superpower among the end-time nations of Israel. (Read The United States and Britain in Prophecy for proof.) So he has a special hatred for America and is working furiously to destroy it. Satan continually keeps grinding out his hatred! The devil is in a rage because he knows his time is short. He has nothing to lose, the way he views it.
Really, Satan’s hatred of Israel is a prominent theme of the entire Bible. I have explained the prophecy in 2 Kings 14:23-29, for example, which describes a Satan-led movement in the end time to “blot out the name of Israel from under heaven.” (You can study this prophecy further in my free booklet Great Again.)
To understand events in America and Britain, we must consider them in this prophetic context.
All of these prophecies will be fulfilled if our people fail to heed God’s warning message!
There is a stunning end-time prophecy delivered by the Prophet Daniel that relates to this. The book of Daniel is only for this end time (Daniel 12:4, 9). He shows that Satan pursues his ambition to destroy Israel through human instruments.
The last part of Daniel 8:17 reads, “Understand, O son of man, that the vision is for the time of the end” (Revised Standard Version). In verse 26, God told Daniel to seal up the vision, “for it relates to the far future” (Moffatt). Many of the events described in this chapter were fulfilled in type in the centuries after Daniel recorded them in 550 b.c. However, even those events point to this prophecy’s primary fulfillment in the end time, just before the Messiah comes.
Beginning in verse 9 is a prophecy of a “little horn” that arose from one of the four divisions of the Grecian Empire. Virtually all commentaries agree this refers to Antiochus Epiphanes, a dictator who obtained rule in Palestine in 176 b.c. through deceit and flattery. What they overlook, though, is that this also has an end-time fulfillment.
Barack Obama is the end-time type of Antiochus who seeks to destroy physical Israel!
This is not a new prophecy. I have been warning about Mr. Obama and his anti-American ambitions since before he became president in 2008. Throughout his eight-year presidency, I explained that Mr. Obama was an Antiochus-type who sought America’s destruction. This is the main theme of my booklet America Under Attack, first published in 2012.
When Mr. Obama left the White House in January 2017, some said this was a failed prophecy. Mr. Obama was no longer president and it appeared he no longer had any influence on American politics. But the truth is, this Antiochus never left the political scene, and he never stopped trying to undermine America!
Daniel 8:11 says this man “magnified himself even to [against] the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice [the work of God] was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down.”
Verse 12 further describes this man’s character: “And an host [a demon army] was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth to the ground; and it practiced, and prospered.” Antiochus cast truth to the ground. He was a lawless man! Moreover, his campaign of lawlessness “practiced and prospered”—it was very successful.
Read Daniel’s entire prophecy to see what sort of man this Antiochus is. History also provides insight. Daniel 11:21 says this leader obtained rule through deceitful lies and flatteries. He was a smooth talker and had a compelling personality. Anciently, Antiochus Epiphanes gained control by pretending to be someone he wasn’t. The same is true of the end-time types of Antiochus: They are master deceivers.
Daniel describes Antiochus further in Daniel 8:23-24: “And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up. And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully [or mightily], and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.”
Consider the recent U.S. election. It’s fair to say we live at a time “when the transgressors are come to the full”! Lawlessness, corruption and sin are rife, even celebrated! And here is a leader who understands“dark sentences”and is able to destroy mightily,“not by his own power,”but by the devil.
“And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand” (verse 25). Notice: Antiochus has a policy of craft. He misleads people, appearing to come in peace before he destroys them!
Satan is deceitful and duplicitous, skilled at presenting himself as something he is not. He is the father of liars and was a murderer from the beginning. When he is involved, things lead to murder if we don’t wake up!
A Promised Land
Last November, around the time of the U.S. election, Barack Obama published his new book, A Promised Land. The book and its author received much critical acclaim both in America and around the world. The timing was no coincidence.
Mr. Obama is an exceptional public speaker and can sound and look very appealing. He appears sophisticated and enlightened, and seems full of love and concern for America and its people. And just as the nation was convulsing in political crisis, this book and the associated publicity thrust Barack Obama into the spotlight. He was on screens all over America sounding rational, wise and presidential.
In his book, Mr. Obama writes multiple times that America’s “need for fundamental change” was a big theme of his campaign and presidency. He has said repeatedly that America needs to change. During an election rally on Oct. 30, 2008, he famously declared, “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”
This is a towering theme of Barack Obama’s life! His books show he has had the goal to fundamentally change America since he was a boy. And that life goal didn’t go away when he left office.
As president, Mr. Obama pursued this ambition with passion. He had a lot of success reshaping America’s identity, both domestically and internationally.
Recall the Obama administration’s support of the popular Islamist uprising against Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. Recall the way they ignored the popular uprising in Iran—then negotiated a grotesque nuclear deal with Iranian leaders that flushed them with cash and provided cover for ongoing nuclear activity. Think of the way they handled Benghazi, when a jihadist mob attacked America’s embassy on the anniversary of 9/11. Obama officials shamefully told our soldiers to stand down while terrorists killed an ambassador and three other Americans. Recall Obama’s restoration of diplomatic ties with Communist Cuba. Recall Mr. Obama’s treatment of Britain (for example, the threat to send the United Kingdom to the bottom of the list if it voted to leave the European Union). Recall his open hostility toward the Jewish state. Recall his keen support of international organizations like the corrupt World Health Organization, or the anti-Israel, anti-American United Nations. Recall his eager participation in the Paris Climate Agreement, which hurt America’s industry and economy.
Domestically, the Obama administration accomplished equally major “fundamental changes.” Recall the Affordable Care Act, a destructive piece of legislation that increases national debt and makes America more of a socialist state. Recall the Obama administration’s politicization of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Central Intelligence Agency and other intelligence agencies, and its use of federal institutions to spy on Americans. Recall the Fast and Furious scandal, the Internal Revenue Service scandal. Recall Mr. Obama saying that white Americans have racism in their dna. Recall the manner in which he undermined America’s law enforcement.
These are the actions of a man and administration working to “fundamentally transform the United States of America.” Put in biblical terms, these are actions aimed at blotting out the name of Israel! This is how Antiochus behaves!
Finally, recall the manner in which the Obama administration handled its departure from the White House and the transfer of power to Donald Trump. Study this history, and you will find that this is when the coup began!
On Jan. 5, 2017, Barack Obama met with his top intelligence officials in the Oval Office. The purpose of this meeting was to brief President Obama on the report he had commissioned investigating the allegation of Russian interference in the 2016 election. Obama’s request for the investigation was based largely on the Steele dossier, a fraudulent report initiated by the Clinton campaign alleging collusion between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign.
At this January 5 meeting, the president was briefed by James Comey, Michael Rogers, John Brennan and James Clapper, directors, respectively, of the fbi, National Security Agency, cia and the Office of National Intelligence. Vice President Joe Biden, National Security Adviser Susan Rice and acting Attorney General Sally Yates were also present. Virtually all the key powers of government were present for this meeting about Donald Trump, who was about to move into the White House.
After this meeting, Obama met with Yates and Comey, both of whom would remain in office when Mr. Trump became president. With them Mr. Obama continued the discussion on the Russia investigation, the ongoing investigation of Donald Trump, the fbi’s investigation into retired U.S. Gen. Michael Flynn—a man Obama detested—and the briefing fbi Director Comey would give the incoming president the next day, January 6.
During this second meeting, President Obama instructed Director Comey to be selective when he briefed President-elect Trump. He was not to tell Trump that he was being investigated. “Obama officials claimed to adhere to a book that forbade consultations between political leaders and investigators. But here they were consulting,” wrote Andrew McCarthy in the National Review (Feb. 15, 2018; emphasis mine throughout). And what were they consulting about?
These January 5 meetings were about keeping the investigation of Donald Trump going even after he became president!
About these January 2017 events, journalist Mollie Hemingway wrote, “Not only was information on Russia not fully shared with the incoming Trump team, as Obama directed, the leaks and ambushes made the transition chaotic, scared quality individuals away from working in the administration, made effective governance almost impossible, and materially damaged national security” (New York Post, May 10, 2020).
Two weeks later, on Jan. 20, 2017, Susan Rice wrote an e-mail to herself documenting what happened in the January 5 meeting. This e-mail was odd. As McCarthy wrote, this wasn’t really “an e-mail-to-self. It is quite consciously an e-mail for the record” (op cit). In it Rice wrote that everything in the January 5 meeting was entirely above board. The president, she wrote, did everything “by the book.” The truth is, as McCarthy wrote, Rice’s e-mail was “not written to memorialize what was decided. It is written to revise the memory of what was decided in order to rationalize what was then done.”
Rice knew that what they had discussed was illegal. She wanted to preempt any investigation by putting on record that everything was “by the book”!
If you have access to the Internet, I encourage you to read “What Did Comey Tell President Trump About the Steele Dossier?”, by Andrew McCarthy in National Review, as well as “Obama Meeting Could Be Behind Corrupt Michael Flynn Probe,” by Mollie Hemingway at the New York Post.
As president, was Barack Obama the guardian of America’s “democratic institutions and traditions—like the rule of law”? Did he leave the “instruments of our democracy at least as strong as [he] found them”?
Evidence shows that Barack Obama spent his final days in office working with deep state operatives figuring out how he could continue to undermine, and even spy on, the incoming president!
In this way, Barack Obama was kicking off the rolling coup that culminated in the 2020 election!
This is the term Freddy Gray, editor of Spectator usa, used to describe a possible Joe Biden presidency. “Obama sounds a bit of a World King these days, but you can’t blame him for feeling chipper. He has his third book of memoirs out … he’s making millions through publishing and Netflix deals, his great nemesis Donald Trump appears finally to have been vanquished —and his gang is taking charge of Washington again” (Nov. 28, 2020).
Barack Obama was pleased when Biden began announcing his selections for various positions in his administration. In a November 23 interview with Politico, he said, “You’re seeing a team develop that I have great confidence in.” Of course he has great confidence in them—they’re his people!
“In fact, the incoming Biden administration is arguably more Obamaish than the original Obama administration was,” Gray wrote. One Biden campaign staff member even told Politico, “the Obama staffers are now cutting out the people who got Biden elected.”
Barack Obama’s presence in Joe Biden’s election campaign never received the scrutiny it deserved. To most people, especially the mainstream media, which adores Obama, it wasn’t a concern. But prophetically, it is a huge concern! Antiochus was active, and he was pursuing his great goal to change America!
In the Epoch Times, Lee Smith wrote, “Obama wants it understood that Biden is an avatar for a third Obama term. Now he can complete the work of ‘fundamentally transforming America,’ as he put it days before the 2008 election” (Nov. 17, 2020).
Barack Obama was the first president in more than a century to take up residence in Washington after leaving office. Most presidents leave the capital, partly out of respect for their successor. Why did Obama remain? In March 2017, the Daily Mail wrote that Obama’s home in Washington, D.C., which is less than two miles from the White House, had become the “nerve center of the mounting insurgency against his successor, President Donald J. Trump.”
Can you imagine? Headquartered in D.C., this man has been coaching the radical left the entire time. Mr. Obama has been personally involved in seeking to overthrow President Trump. In March, he personally guided the selection of Joe Biden as the Democratic nominee for president. For example, Obama personally called Pete Buttigieg after he pulled out of the race and asked him to endorse Biden. He had aides make similar calls to Amy Klobuchar and Elizabeth Warren.
Between March and November, Barack Obama and his team campaigned hard for Joe Biden. Not only that, they encouraged voters to vote early, and to vote via mail-in ballots. We now know that a lot of the fraud was committed with these mail-in votes. By November 3, the radical left was ready to manipulate an election.
Then on November 7, Joe Biden—Barack Obama’s right-hand man for eight years—was declared America’s next president. Biden’s vice president, Kamala Harris, was also hand-selected by Mr. Obama. When Biden and Harris announced candidates for positions in the new administration, many of these people were either close to Obama or had been part of the Obama administration.
By mid-December, what amounted to a third Obama administration had been created and was ready to move back into the White House!
The most remarkable part was, most of America had no problem with this! Antiochus was ready to take back control, and America didn’t care!
If this plan had not been interrupted, I believe Barack Obama would have ended up back in the White House—at the very least as the grand puppet-master directing Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. This might sound far-fetched to some. But is it, really?
Consider what Obama himself said in an interview with Stephen Colbert in November. “People would ask me, knowing what you know now, do you wish you had a third term? And I used to say, if I could make an arrangement where I had a stand-in, a front-man or front-woman, and they had an earpiece in and I was in my basement with my sweats looking through the stuff and I could deliver the lines, but somebody else was doing all the talking and ceremony, I would be fine with that because I found the work fascinating.” Mr. Obama has made other similar statements indicating he wants to be president again!
Consider what Rudy Giuliani, Donald Trump’s attorney, said during a Fox News interview on December 6. “This was a pattern that was set by somebody in Washington, because everybody else carried out exactly in the same way and they did it in the crooked cities. … I don’t know who was in charge of it. All I can tell you is it looks like a very well-planned, very well-executed situation.”
Mr. Giuliani has access to all sorts of facts and intelligence, and he says someone in Washington, D.C., orchestrated this coup. He didn’t say who he believes it was. But it is logical to conclude that it was Antiochus!
In the coming weeks and months, expect even more evidence to emerge proving Barack Obama was behind the radical left’s attack on the Trump administration and the U.S. electoral system!
How to Be Saved
Imagine how destructive it would be to America if Barack Obama led the nation, either directly as president or via a proxy like Joe Biden or Kamala Harris, for the next four years. Since he left office, the radical left has become much more powerful. Think about the suffocating power of the tech companies, the uncontested supremacy of the radicalized mainstream media, and the rise of hardcore Marxists in the Democratic Party. All of these powerful entities are led by an anti-God Antiochus whose goal is to blot out the name of Israel—or God’s master plan for mankind! With the support of these people, Obama could easily finish the job of “fundamentally transforming” America!
Barack Obama and his surrogates would have the power to make sure a leader like Donald Trump would never be in power again! America as we know it—a nation underpinned by Judeo-Christian values and governed by the rule of law, a nation that respects its forefathers, a nation unique for its God-given power and prosperity—would be destroyed!
I have explained the prophecies in Amos 7 and 2 Kings 14, both of which reveal that God is not going to allow Mr. Obama and the radical left to blot out the name of Israel. These prophecies are dual, which means the events described in these chapters occurred anciently in Israel, but will also occur in America and Britain (the descendants of biblical Israel) in the end time.
In 2 Kings 14:26, Israel is in severe affliction. “For the Everliving pitied the immeasurable miseries of Israel both without and within, when there was no ease for Israel” (Ferrar Fenton translation). Notice, much of the suffering is inflicted from within the nation. The nation is being destroyed from the inside by Antiochus and his supporters!
And remember that the book of Kings is one of the former prophets, which contains prophecy mainly for the latter days—our time today.
But notice verse 27: “And the Lord said not that he would blot out the name of Israel from under heaven: but he saved them by the hand of Jeroboam the son of Joash.” The name of Israel is about to be blotted out. God Himself intervenes and saves Israel temporarily. How? By the hand of an end-time Jeroboam!
Today, Donald Trump plays the role of an end-time Jeroboam.
Most Americans will consider this good news, and it is—but not for the reason many think.
These prophecies do not end with America remaining perpetually prosperous and peaceful. Anciently, the kingdom of Israel was destroyed by Assyria after the reign of King Jeroboam ended (2 Kings 18). Prophecies in Isaiah 10 and Habakkuk 1 tell us this will happen to Israel in the end time too: America and Britain will be destroyed by the Holy Roman Empire, which is led by Germany—the descendants of ancient Assyria.
In Amos 7:8, God reveals why He saves America through Jeroboam. He says, “… I will set a plumbline in the midst of my people Israel: I will not again pass by them any more.” A plumbline is usually used in measuring a building or construction. But God uses it differently here: This is about measuring the destruction that is to come upon the nations of Israel. This destruction is not random; God is measuring it carefully and precisely. And it will bring about the most wonderful results imaginable.
When God saves America from Barack Obama and the radical left, He is giving the nation one final opportunity to repent of sin and turn to Him!
Speaking of this time, God says in Ezekiel 33:11, “I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?”
God is deeply emotional about this! When He saves Israel, it is only temporary. But He yearns to save Israel permanently! He derives no pleasure in seeing people suffer. This is why He pleads with these people year after year, crying out through this Watch Jerusalem, the Key of David television program and theTrumpet.com, beseeching them to repent of their sins.
God is full of mercy and love, and quick to forgive and protect. But to receive God’s forgiveness and protection, the people of America and Britain—and any person of any race or nation—must repent. We must stop sinning, stop rebelling against God’s law and stop resisting God!
As world conditions deteriorate, remember this message. God will protect us physically and spiritually. Even in a blistering message like Amos’s, there is good news! When this world disintegrates before our eyes, we know that a new world is almost here! Yes, there are difficult prophecies ahead, but they all lead to the coming of the Messiah.
This world does not know God! They are about to get to know Him and have their chance to be saved. Spiritually, most of them will get to know God for the first time in a resurrection from the dead.
“Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt. And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them. And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the Lord thy God” (Amos 9:13-15). This is the wonderful conclusion Amos gives us.
The bad news in what is coming is only temporary. Soon, everyone will be educated and they will be blessed for their obedience.
But their time of understanding lies in the future. To those prepared to repent and obey God, today is our day. We have the unparalleled opportunity to give to God, to give to this world, and to fulfill our responsibility to faithfully support the very work of God. God is preparing His people to help the Messiah rule for all eternity!
