Even the Mahdi though, in my view, can only do this by invoking takiya; i.e., letting the Muslims know he, within seven years, will destroy the Jews, then turn their Temple into a beautiful mosque. Is such a conversion of a Jewish building possible? Yes; all over Europe churches and old synagogues are becoming mosques, and from the beginning of Islam, this has been the case. Witness the beautiful central church in Constantinople, the Hagia Sophia. It became the Muslim central mosque when Constantinople became Istanbul after the Muslim Ottomans conquered it.
Well, who would the Jews in Israel trust then? The answer may lie in another place, where most of the Jewish population not living in Israel lives: the United States. As usual, the Jewish vote in the U.S. is nearly all for the Democratic Party candidate, who this time is Barack Hussein Obama (BHO).
They really like him. He is a luke warm “Christian” by profession, which makes the Jews comfortable, as many, if not most, do not care for evangelical Christians. Moreover he is a social liberal, who closely tracks with the prevailing liberal views among most Israelis. But where is the Muslim connection, and how could he be the AC?
The Muslim connection is that both his father and step father were Muslim. It seems quite possible BHO was not born in Hawaii, as claimed, but in Kenya, with his father’s Muslim family. The BHO people have refused to turn over his original birth certificate, which is currently the object of a federal law suit. Why not? Why not just produce it and make the embarrassing law suit go away? Perhaps because the Hawaiian certificate would be clearly a forgery. Now, once he is President, then he will be able to put that issue to bed one way or the other, considering he will be the most powerful man in the world.
Consider also that his roommates in college were Muslim, and he followed them to that Islamist hot bed of Pakistan, for a “vacation.” (And with whose money, since he was supposed to be so poor?) Until he went on vacation, he was “Barry.” After he came back, he was “Barack.”
Barack in Arabic means “blessed.” Barack Obama was originally named “Baraka.” It is not an African name. It’s an Arabic word meaning “blessed” and comes directly from the Koran. (Hussein is the name of Mohammed’s grandchild, and means “handsome or lovely one”, and Obama in Swahili – an Arabic derivative name from the days of slave traders populating the area – means “bent or crooked one.”)
There is more. As a sitting senator, he campaigned vigorously for his second cousin, Odinga, in Kenya. Odinga is a radical Islamist, who has lead violent attacks against the Christian tribes in Kenya, after seizing power (he lost that election Obama participated in). Until this violent man of Obama’s clan came along, Kenya had been an island of tranquility in a sea of African violence. No more.
Obama’s money man and mentor in Chicago is a Muslim, and in his biography BHO said if things got ugly in America against Muslims, he would side with them. Again and again, we see that Obama is partial to Islam, though the media strains mightily to hide it. There is even contested evidence that he speaks Arabic.
Now then, could a Muslim be such a closet believer? Yes, such duplicity as this is a mainstream belief in Islam, so long as it is necessary and for Allah’s glory. Would not the chance of becoming the most powerful man in the world be a fine reason to hide his religion?
And so if you have a closet Muslim become President, what does he inherit vis-à-vis the Mideast? First, he inherits from President Bush a major troop presence in Iraq, and a stunningly massive “embassy” complex in Baghdad. The “embassy” tells me we have big, long range plans in this place, a place which any troop who has been there will tell you is an unappealing, sweltering h—hole. But as a base of Mideast power, for launching a “peacekeeping” corps into Palestine, and for controlling the Euphrates, the prophetic gate to Israel, it is excellent
But what about Israel? He would also inherit a very mature “peace process” and an Israel nearly desperate to finally stop the tension and warfare. This is especially true if the peace maker could prevail on those Muslim messiah-philes in Iran to be nice. The Israelis must worry constantly of Iranian nukes. Who, they ask, will teach the Muslims peace? How about a charismatic, liberal American President, who has the world at his feet, and for some unexplainable reason, had most all Muslim leaders acclaim him right after he had a closed-door meeting with them in Turkey?
Next there is the matter of the second Abomination which causes Desolation (AOD), which Jesus indicated would be the clear signal of who the AC will be. Recall in Revelation 2:13 that the provincial city of Pergamum is called the “seat, or throne, of Satan.” That phrase seems odd there, almost a non sequiter. But perhaps God was providing an acid test of the Anti Christ for us.
In the Greek, the phrase “where Satan’s seat is” literally means, “where a throne to Satan is.” Scholars identify this throne or ‘seat’ as the Great Altar of Zeus that existed in Pergamos at that time.
Pergamum was famous for its Temple to Zeus. Christian scholars of Greek mythology believe Zeus is an “analog”, or another name, for Satan. This temple was the foremost temple to Zeus in the former Greek empire, and built by the local king, Eumenes II. Eumenes was a mentor to none other than Antiochus IV Epiphanes; yes, the very Seleucid king who committed the first AOD by erecting a statue of Zeus in the Temple and slaying a pig on the alter in honor of . . . Zeus.
Antiochus was the son of the Seleucid king defeated by the Romans as their empire spread to the Mideast. He was a Parthian (Iranian), and ambitious. After his father’s defeat, being an opportunist, Antiochus went to Rome, seeking permission to take his father’s throne. The area he wanted to rule included Jerusalem. Yet the Roman Senate did not trust him, and said no.
But Antiochus Epiphanes IV was not so easily deterred, and went to Pergamum to bide his time. There he met Eumenes, who was building his soon-to-be famous Temple to Zeus. Eumenes became Antiochus’ sponsor, as Antiochus built his influence and power, until the Roman Senate relented and made him Seleucid king of the Syrian area. While in Pergamum Antiochus no doubt worshipped often at the Zeus temple. He was known for his zealous evangelism for Zeus worship, and who knows what spiritual infestation occurred there?
He was not only a worshiper of the Zeus cult, but a brutal man, who so enraged the Jews, that they rebelled. He defeated them temporarily, and during that time, committed the AOD.
Fast forward about 2000 years. The German archeologists are in Pergamum. They approach the Muslim Ottoman rulers with a proposal to buy this old pagan temple to Zeus, and move it to Berlin. As we know, Muslims are not fans of any culture but Islam, and quickly assented. Thus the German spirited (sorry) the entire temple to Berlin, where they built a massive museum in the 1880’s, restored the Temple and rebuilt it right in the museum. It became quite famous and an icon of Greek architecture, recognized by educated people around the world.
Fast forward again about 50 years. A young Austrian art aficionado named Adolph Hitler must have been especially enamored of it. Or at least his first propaganda minister (when Hitler gained power), Albert Speer, was. Because he and Hitler determined to put on the most grandiose political theater in history, and the Temple played a central role. What followed were the infamous Nuremburg speeches, which were immortalized in the propaganda film “Triumph of the Will.”
Hitler gave a series of mesmerizing speeches to the assembled masses. It was a coming out party of a sort, where the world realized this was no ordinary politician. He seemed imbued with an almost hypnotic ability to say nothing in particular, but in a way which enraptured the youth. And he did it while speaking from a replica of Berlin’s most famous ancient museum piece: The Temple of Pergamum, aka The Temple of Zeus, aka The Throne of Satan.
Startlingly, Hitler was both a fanatical hater of Jews, and an ardent admirer of Islam. He felt Islam had a wonderful martial air to it, and rued the day that Charles Martel and General Sobieski, about 1000 years apart, twice stopped the Muslims from over running Europe. He felt the Arabs were clearly inferior to the Germanic peoples, and that, if the Germanic/Aryan people could have been marinated in Islam, they would have been much stronger, and so Islam would have been stronger.
By the way, Hitler’s special guest in Berlin throughout WWII was the Mufti of Jerusalem, who shared Hitler’s loathing of the Jews, and later nurtured a young Palestinian who came to call himself Yasser Arafat.
Fast forward about another 75 years. Another fascinating and charismatic young politician, who mesmerizes huge German crowds with rousing speeches, is in Berlin. His name is Barack Hussein Obama. Obama does something no American Presidential candidate has ever done, which is give major foreign policy speeches abroad. His largest, most triumphant speech is in Berlin where adoring youthful crowds, representing much of Europe, listen raptly as he says, well, nothing. But he does it so well.
So did BHO visit the Museum of the Temple of Pergamum in Berlin while he was there? Presumably he did. As his hosts showed off their city, surly they must have taken him to their famous museum. Did he see it? If so, did he receive any spiritual signals, or any power, or any anointing from the Throne of Satan, like perhaps Hitler and Antiochus before him? We do not know.
What we do know was that BHO, came back to nail down the Democratic nomination for President in Denver, Colorado. There he made a bold, or some said arrogant, decision to accept his party’s nomination in a massive football stadium, hoping to fill it with up with 100,000 fans. The numbers were unprecedented for an American political speech, except for him. This young rock star politician seemed able to conjure up crowds that size at will.
However, even his staunch supporters felt uneasy that the stage he demanded to speak from was rather un-American and pretentious. He wanted to give a speech from a replica of a Greek building! Jokes about him wearing a toga ensued, but he pressed on.
As photos of its construction were spread around the Internet, a Christian author and blogger named Joel Richardson gained some instant notoriety across the Internet by demonstrating that this building was a dead ringer for the Temple at Pergamum. The BHO people made some weak excuses that it represented the U.S. capitol and White House West Wing combined. But expert scholars agreed with Richardson; it was a replica of the Temple of Pergamum.
So, curiously, Obama chose to deliver his rousing political coming-out speech to the assembled, mostly youthful, masses from a replica of the Throne of Satan, just like Hitler had done many decades ago. Of course the oblivious U.S. media had no idea, and wrote Richardson off as a nut, as their hero – a man certain people across the United States were openly calling a messiah – hurtled toward his date with destiny.
- Government representatives make an oath before taking public office, and witnesses in a court of law take an oath to “swear to tell the truth” before offering testimony.
- These principles are deeply rooted in the Judeo-Christian faith as well as most other religions. Though there is no way of knowing what the Presidential Oath of Office deeply means to Obama or whether the blunder and redo of the swearing in ceremony was anything more than an accident, the unprecedented gaffe was suspicious to some as possibly representing important hidden meaning. Misgivings over it were additionally compounded when reflected against other curious activities and declarations by Barack Obama, which most of the media missed, downplayed, or simply refused to report on, that strongly connected his emergence with occult mythology identified in the Bible as both prophetic and demonic.An extraordinary example of this was when Obama gave his speech in Berlin, Germany, on July 24th, 2008, titled “The World that Stands as One.” More than a few students of occult history took notice of the symbolism and location of the event, even causing some who until then had rejected any “antichrist” labels hurled at Obama to reconsider their position. This included respected Catholic writer Michael O’Brien, best known for his apocalyptic novel Father Elijah. O’Brien had received numerous letters and emails from subscribers and visitors to his website wondering if Obama was the Antichrist.At first O’Brien wrote that this was not possible. Then a friend that had seen Obama’s speech in Berlin called him, talking about how mesmerizing the speech was and that an announcer over German radio had said: “We have just heard the next President of the United States… and the future President of the World.” By now Obama was conveying an unusual likeness to the Antichrist character of his novel. After watching the Berlin speech several times for himself, O’Brien sent out a newsletter in which he admitted that, while he still doubted Obama was the prophesied ruler of the end times, he had come to believe he was “a carrier of a deadly moral virus, indeed a kind of anti-apostle spreading concepts and agendas that are not only anti-Christ but anti-human as well.” O’Brien finally conceded Obama could be instrumental in ushering in the dreaded Great Tribulation period, and worse, that he was “of the spirit of Antichrist.” After Obama’s term of office was underway, O’Brien pointed out the numerous foreign and domestic problems Obama was facing, including wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the possibility of a new war with Iran, and issues related to the crumbling financial systems, saying these obstacles could overshadow Obama and lead to his defeat in the next presidential election. O’Brien then added in what was a clear reference to the coming of Antichrist, “Alternatively, he could become the ‘Great Facilitator,’ negotiator, peacemaker, working marvels throughout the world as he moves from one seemingly unsolvable problem to another.”
Because it is true that any significant public political event requires both forethought and symbolic meaning, the location where Obama gave his Berlin speech in front of Berlin’s Victory Column contributed to O’Brien’s conclusions. The site was offensive to educated Germans as well as to Christians and Jews because of its ties to Adolf Hitler and the Nazis. It was nevertheless oddly appropriate, for it was upon this exact location that Hitler had planned to enthrone himself in the Welthauptstadt Germania—the new “World Capital” upon winning World War II.
During the 1930s, Hitler commissioned Albert Speer “the first architect of the Third Reich” to design the new capital. As part of the plans, the “Siegessäule” or Berlin Victory Column—a 226-foot monument topped by a golden winged figure representing Borussia, the female personification of Prussia, and Victoria, the cult goddess of military victory—was removed from its location in front of the Reichstag building in 1939 and relocated to its current location in the Tiergarten, a 495 acre park in the middle of Berlin where Obama gave his speech in front of the Nazi symbol.
Rainer Brüderle, deputy leader of the liberal political party Free Democrats in Germany complained to the newspaper Bild am Sonntag: “The Siegessäule in Berlin was moved to where it is now by Adolf Hitler. He saw it as a symbol of German superiority and of the victorious wars against Denmark, Austria and France.” This represented a serious question In Brüderle’s mind as to “whether Barack Obama was advised correctly in his choice of the Siegessäule as the site to hold a speech on his vision for a more cooperative world.”  Another German politician named Andreas Schockenhoff was equally disturbed, saying, “It is a problematic symbol.”
Evidently it was not problematic for Obama, who stood in front of it and saluted the German audience in a way eerily similar to what Adolf Hitler used to do, followed by thousands returning the salute, which is against German law. When Obama ended his speech in front of the war goddess, he said, “With an eye toward the future, with resolve in our hearts, let us remember this history, and answer our destiny, and remake the world once again.” This is exactly what Hitler had promised to do and exactly where he had planned to memorialize it.
Of greater significance and not far from where Obama delivered his rousing speech, is the Great Altar of Zeus in the Pergamon Museum. According to several reports, Obama visited the Great Altar while in Berlin, which is especially important given what he did on returning to the United States. Before we examine Obama’s revealing actions, consider carefully what the Bible says about the Altar of Zeus in the letter to the church in Pergamos (Pergamum, Pergamon).
“And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges; I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and has not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth” (Rev. 2:12-13).
In the Greek, the phrase “where Satan’s seat is” literally means, “where a throne to Satan is.” Scholars identify this throne or ‘seat’ as the Great Altar of Zeus that existed in Pergamos at that time. So important was the worship of Zeus in ancient Pergamos that perpetual sacrifices were offered to him upon the towering and famous 40-foot high altar. Antipas, the first leader and martyr of the early Christian church is believed to have been slain on this altar, slowly roasting to death inside the statue of a bull, the symbol and companion of Zeus. The phrase in Revelation 2:13 “wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth” is considered a citation of this event.
Approximately two-thousand years after Revelation 2:13 was written, German archeologists removed the massive altar of Zeus from the ruins of Pergamos and took it to Berlin, where it was restored as the centerpiece of the Pergamon Museum. It is here that Hitler first adored it, later building an outdoor replica of it from which he gave a series of speeches that mesmerized many Germans.
“Fast forward about another 75 years,” says blogger El Gallo. “Another charismatic young politician mesmerizes huge German crowds with a rousing speech in Berlin. Barack Hussein Obama…. [and] did Barack Obama visit… the Great Altar of Zeus…? Presumably he did.”
Whether Obama received inspiration from the throne of Satan while in Berlin or not, what he did next was astonishing. Upon returning to the United States, he immediately commissioned the construction of a Greek-columned stage from which hemade his acceptance speech for his party’s nomination. Because Greek temples such as those built to honor Zeus were thought to house the patron deity, the GOP ridiculed Obama, mocking him as playing Zeus of “Mount Olympus” and accusing his supporters of “kneeling” before the “Temple of Obama.” The New York Post ran an enlightening Convention Special supplement on August 28th, 2008 with the telling headline: ‘O’ MY GOD: DEMS ERECT OBAMA TEMPLE blazoned across the front cover. But it was not until blogger Joel Richardson pointed out how the design of Obama’s stage was a dead ringer for the Great Altar of Zeus  that Obama’s campaign managers tried to explain away the design as being a conglomeration representing the portico of the White House with the U.S. capital building. “But experts agreed with Richardson,” Gallo wrote, “it was a replica of the Great Altar of Pergamum.”
Thus, incredibly, like Hitler, Obama had honored the goddess Victoria with his presence before ordering a replica of the biblical throne of Satan built, upon which he accepted his date with destiny.
A final troubling disclosure at the conclusion of this entry may cast light on why Obama seemed fascinated with such anti-Christian symbolism in the lead-up to his election victory. A Hadith (tradition) sacred to Shiite Islam from the 17th century contains a prophecy from Ali ibn Abi-Talib, which predicts that just before the return of the Mahdi (the end-times redeemer of Islam), a “tall black man will assume the reins of government in the West.” This leader will command “the strongest army on earth” and will bear “a clear sign” from the third imam, Hussein. The prophecy concludes that: “Shiites should have no doubt that he is with us.”
Does this Islamic prophecy identify Obama as the “promised warrior” who comes to help the savior of Shiite Muslims conquer the world? Amir Taheri asked this very question for Forbes Magazine in October, 2008, pointing out how “Obama’s first and second names—Barack Hussein—mean ‘the blessing of Hussein’ in Arabic and Persian” while 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.”

Leap forward to 2009, and Barack Hussein Obama on June 4 gave an unprecedented speech to the Muslim world from Cairo, Egypt declaring that he is launching a new era between the United States and the Muslim world. For the first time, Obama was forthright about his Muslim heritage and stated that the United States—which he is on record as saying is “no longer a Christian nation”—is now “one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.” Newsweek editor Evan Thomas followed the president’s speech with a declaration reflected in the opinion of many, that “Obama is standing above the country, above the world, he is a sort of God.”
