Today I had this strange dÃ©jÃ vu â€“you know the kind where you tell yourself â€œIâ€™ve heard or seen this before.â€ While riding the bus, and I overheard this conversion between a group of people seating at the back of the bus. They were talking about Barack Obama, and how he came from nothing to being one of the most highly respected men in the world.
Traits they believe are already prophesied in the bible â€“ where a Child will venture forth – for the first time – to bring the light unto the entire world.
Not taking any heed to the conversion which I just overheard, a few hours later I came across this article on the internet entitled: Barack Obama, the second coming of Christ.
Below is an excerpt from the article:
And it came to pass, in the eighth year of the reign of the evil Bush the Younger (The Ignorant), when the whole land from the Arabian Desert to the shores of the Great Lakes had been laid barren, that a Child appeared in the wilderness.
The Child was blessed in looks and intellect. Scion of a simple family, offspring of a miraculous union, grandson of a typical white person and an African peasant. And yea, as he grew, the Child walked in the path of righteousness, with only the occasional detour into the odd weed and a little blow.
When he was twelve years old, they found him in the temple in the City of Chicago, arguing the finer points of community organisation with the Prophet Jeremiah and the Elders. And the Elders were astonished at what they heard and said among themselves: â€œVerily, who is this Child that he opens our hearts and minds to the audacity of hope?â€
In the great Battles of Caucus and Primary he smote the conniving Hillary, wife of the deposed King Bill the Priapic and their barbarian hordes of Working Class Whites.
And so it was, in the fullness of time, before the harvest month of the appointed year, the Child ventured forth – for the first time – to bring the light unto the entire world.
For some strange reason I feel like the universe is trying to tell me something. 🙂 How ironic is that ah? In one day I was lucky enough to accidentally come across this same topic – or maybe it wasn’t an accident. You can call me crazy if you want â€“ but I do believe that Obama was sent by god to save mankind from himself. “Yes We Can.”
This nonsense was on the Web last week as parody.
It is extremely dangerous to mix politics with religion. Religion takes it upon itself to be unquestioned and unquestionable. Think!! Would you want your political leader to be above any questions, a law unto himself?
Besides that, how would you view it if some other nation had a person leading it who claimed to be god according to their religion?
I strongly doubt Obama is Second Coming of Christ. This pronounced glorification of the man, that seems to manifest itself really beats me- it started from the time he announced his desire to run for U.S. President and it has infiltrated sooo many countries…
I mean SERIOUSLY…call me bitter…but don’t blame me for living in a world where politicians continue to LIE and DISAPPOINT their people. From Chavez to Bush to Mugabe going back all the way to Hitler, Stalin, Napoleon- From Nicaragua to Cambodia to the Sudan. Haven’t politicians Historically done more Bad for their people than good? Few men…like Gandhi, Mandela and Simon Bolivar have made some milestones. But in my opinion, these changes were made more through social means than political means.
To me voting is just like rolling a dice…you can never tell what you’re going to get. If we looked for leaders instead of miracle workers we would be less vulnerable to shock and disappointment from politicians.
Yes, some politicians do learn from their mistakes. But often when its just a bit too late. And history has proven that these lessons come with age. Because true wisdom comes with age and experience. My point is that I think the world is expecting just a little bit too much from Barack Obama. We want him to solve the energy crisis, the economics problems, the global conflicts based on religious incompatibilities and blind hatred. So we idolize him…and we forget the lessons that history has taught us.
We’ve forgotten that History repeats itself. Why? Because the world is a cycle.
“When great changes occur in history, when great principles are involved, as a rule the majority are wrong. The minority are right.” Eugene V. Debs
“History is a vast early warning system.” Norman Cousins
“The study of history is the beginning of political wisdom.” – Jean Bodin –
I think we should start thinking together, as a global community for the solutions to our problems. Because its OUR world. NOT the politicians’ world. When we start making them feel like its THEIR world, we feed them power, power, power. Then when they become villains, we call them powerhungry warmongers, villains, dictators.
I have nothing against Barack Obama. I certainly feel he’s the better candidate when put against both Hilary Clinton and Mc Cain. But I refuse to expect any supernatural and divine work from a Man. He’s not going to end the the energy crisis, the economics problems, or the global conflicts based on religious incompatibilities and blind hatred.
And the sooner some of us start realizing that, the easier it will be for us to understand WHY he hasn’t done these things when he doesn’t. But perhaps we’ll just sit waiting for another Human Messiah-like politician to fool us AGAIN.
“History never looks like History when you are living through it.” – John W(illiam) Gardner
Chris I think this will be the topic for my next post.
I respect your opinion – when you say:
“I have nothing against Barack Obama. I certainly feel heâ€™s the better candidate when put against both Hilary Clinton and Mc Cain. But I refuse to expect any supernatural and divine work from a Man. Heâ€™s not going to end the the energy crisis, the economics problems, or the global conflicts based on religious incompatibilities and blind hatred.”
But let me ask you this just for discussion sake – didn’t the messiah (Jesus) returned as has ordinary man? And did he stop all the wars and hatred happening throughout the world? No!
As you rightfully mention in your comment: “Weâ€™ve forgotten that History repeats itself. Why? Because the world is a cycle”.
BTW Dani – do you believe in the return of the Messiah, and if you do – whats your perception of the messiah? 🙂
oh..and one more thing (actually dealing with the immediate issue at hand)…it’s highly unlikely that any Son of God would have a political agenda. He (or she) would automatically be a cause for division instead of a reason for unity.
and all the men who were ‘sent by God to save mankind from himself’ had spiritual , philosophical OR religious agendas- like Haile Selassie, MLK Jr., Malcolm X, Christ , Mohammed, Buddha, Confucius- the issue is whether or not you feel they all believed in the same ‘God’.
Moral of the story- Men who are ‘sent by God to save mankind from himself’ NEVER have political agendas, though they MAY use political means. 😉
Dani, you have written exactly what I would have. I am not a believer, but if I were, I would certainly not think that a messiah cared at all for politics or other worldly matters. I think that the bible depicts Jesus that way: “render unto Caesar…”.
Jesus gave us the keys to create Heaven on Earth:
The Bible tells us: The Kingdom of God is within you, Christ is in you and the Holy Spirit lives in you.
Christ’s Second Coming to establish Heaven on Earth is therefore being realized when we allow Him to appear through us. The Second Coming of Christ is taking place right now inside of people who purify their thoughts and emotions to allow Christ to enter their hearts and minds. Thus Christ is coming into our world.
Barack Obama is an instrument in the Second Coming of Christ and .
I am afraid you need to study the Bible a bit more, you have to compare a scripture with scripture; Jesus’ second coming is not to establish Heaven on Earth, because the Bible says that earth and everything in it shall be burned and Christian will live in new heavens and new earth ( But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells. 2 Peter 10 to 13)
As far as the key you mentioned, The Lord Jeus has the key and when we proclaim liberty of God’s salvation plan to man kind we use His key as children (by adoption) of God as it is said “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” John 12 and 13.
So it is God’s authority and we as his children practice this authority.
As far as Obama being the return of Christ or an instrument in His coming is crazy in its worst meaning possible. When Jesus came as a human, He took on a human form to bail out man kind from their sins, He had to be human to die for a human, He was born from a virgin because sin is inherited from the father as the Lord God mentioned it to Adam in the book of Genesis (Cursed is the ground because of you) so Jesus had to be born from a virgin so he would not be contaminated with sin, so He is a perfect human born to die for sinful human, that is why Jesus didn’t get married for he doesn’t have the lust of man kind, just like Adam who did not have union with Eve until after they sinned. but the bible says His second coming will be in glory with His angels. Jesus is God himself and not a man.
I come from a muslim background from Egypt to be specific, and I can tell you from my experience in debating with muslim people that Obama is a muslim man, the way he mocked the Bible ignorantly, and the sermon of the Mount, I heard these words before exactly as he said them word by word from muslim scholars, so he is a sounding trumpet to muslims undercover I assume.
Islam is an anti-Christ religion, read the Koran and Hadith and you will understand. The Bible mention very bad things about Islam and Mohamed in the Old and New testement, the Bible which is the word of God is not ignorant about islam which came hundreds of years after its completion, but that is a different story.
I hate to leave without leaving you at least one of many proofs: Jesus is speaking about the evil of the coming days of Islam.
Koran sura 9:29
Fight (kill) those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day (judjment day), nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Apostle (Mohamed) have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth (Islam), out of those who have been given the Book (the Bible), until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.
The Bible, John 1 to 4
1 â€œThese things I have spoken to you, that you should not be made to stumble. 2 They will put you out of the synagogues; yes, the time is coming that whoever kills you will think that he offers God service. 3 And these things they will do to you because they have not known the Father nor Me. 4 But these things I have told you, that when the time comes, you may remember that I told you of them.
This fits perfectly with islam who they are supposed to kill Christians because they think christians believe in three gods, while in fact Christians do believe in One God who manifest himself in the flesh, so they do not understand the Father, Son and Holy Spirit concept as One God.
Amen!! Thank you Daniel!!
The only instrument the Lord wants is a person that accepts Him and who will not depend on a mere man to save them. Your Bible and seeking His knowledge is His instrument, His Word is all you should depend on, and not the hope that lies with man. When The Lord comes back IN HIS GLORIFIED HOLY BODY with His sword in hand ready to take what is His. He will not come back involving Himself in the works of man, He will be coming back to rid the WHOLE world of everything perverse, wicked, self-worshipping, and unjust, that is the (evil within) of those who do those works by way of being influenced by the evil spirits that were casted down for judgement. He is coming back to take claim on what Adam and Eve lost in the Garden.

JESUS CHRIST IS LORD not a mere man. He was (never) a mere man, even though some would like to make one think He was just like us, that’s a laugh, HE IS GOD IN THE FLESH we are His creation, the creation WILL NEVER EQUAL ITS CREATOR. There is nothing new under the sun because everything is His creation. People have pride in the things they do. Can a man make the matter that forms the dirt?
Maybe you should read the Holy Bible and look at Daniel and The Book of Revelation. The WHOLE WORLD will see the coming of the Lord and it won’t be something you will need your Digital T.V. to see, whenever you do see a person claiming to be Jesus or Jesus like on t.v. you will be looking at the anti-christ and his false miracles. The Lord is the one who made ALL things and He is far greater than any thought or deed of a man. After all The Lord made the matter that made the chair you sit in while you are on your computer, the air you breathe everyday, He made the Sun and the Moon and the Stars, the food you eat, and brain in your head. Please for you own sake seek some REAL knowledge before its too late. The Lord will come back so fast that you will blink and then realize that you are in one place (Good) or the other (Bad) on judgement day and when He judges accordingly you should want to end up in His Good place and not in the lake of fire, which by the way, the place is as real as the eyes that you read this with. I feel for those that choose to take this as a joke, why take a chance, you should want to learn The Lord, if you don’t seek Him and His knowledge now you will definitely end up in eternal misery, forever.
The Lord said that many will be fooled by the anti-christ.

28) Jesus said, “I took my place in the midst of the world, and
I appeared to them in the flesh. I found all of them intoxicated;
I found none of them thirsty. And My soul became afflicted for
the sons of men, because they are blind in their hearts and do
not have sight; for empty they came into the world, and empty too
they seek to leave the world. But for the moment they are
intoxicated. When they shake off their wine, then they will
39) Jesus said, “The Pharisees and the scribes have taken the
keys of Knowledge and hidden them. They themselves have not
entered, nor have they allowed to enter those who wish to. You,
however, be as wise as serpents and as innocent as doves.”
77) Jesus said, “It is I who am the light which is above them
all. It is I who am the All. From Me did the All come forth, and
unto Me did the All extend. Split a piece of wood, and I am
there. Lift up the stone, and you will find Me there.”
78) Jesus said, “Why have you come out into the desert? To see a
reed shaken by the wind? And to see a man clothed in fine
garments like your kings and your great men? Upon them are the
fine [garments], and they are unable to discern the truth.”
If I were you, I would not quote from these so called sacred texts. These are not from God; Thomas gospel, Mary Magdalene gospel, Barnabas gospel. . . . . . etc. all of these writings are dangerous, they mix lies to poison the truths for their source is not the Holy Spirit.
The real word of God did warn about them.
2 Corinthians 11:4
For if he who comes preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or if you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not acceptedâ€”you may well put up with it!
God knows His book, when it was completed, He gathered them and put them in one book as we have it today in the Holy Bible. The word Bible comes from the greek word Biblos or books.
Search from the book of the LORD, and read:
Not one of these shall fail;
Not one shall lack her mate.
For My mouth has commanded it, and His Spirit has gathered them.
There are so many errors in these so called gospels, but I will mention one major error. These gospels will give you hints that Jesus had a relation with Mary Magdalen which of course was imposible, for the fact that Jesus did not have the sex attraction between man and woman like a regular man,
this is a byproduct of sin when Adam sinned, for Adam did not know it until his fall and later he knew his wife. The fact that Jesus was born from a virgin even confirms this, because God told Adam in the book of Genesis “cursed is the ground because of you” which means that we inherit sin from the father not the mother, so Jesus had to be born from a virgin with no man involved to have no sin in Him, another words a human with no knowledge of sin to die for a sinful human. If we say Jesus married Mary Magdalene, then he had sexual attraction which is the byproduct of sin, in turn Jesus had sin in Him, in turn there would be no reason for the virgin birth in the first place and the salvation plan is flawed.
Other errors like Jesus showed partialities and fabrications to die are also unacceptable of course.
Barack Obama IS God’s son that was sent to help us. They may call us crazy now, but they’ll see.
My latest book Politics Remixed! The Gospel of Action is about this very topic.
Keep talking my brother.
Like everybody else I say no He can’t be the second coming,but when I experience the way he comunicates with us and the world I get overwhelmed with a God like presence,a feeling of salvation.So hey,what is wrong with a little bit of hope in a time like this?
You have got to be kidding me, the second coming? Are you serious? These must be the same people that believe in global warming. Whoever thinks he is the second coming of christ is F****d in the head. If anything he is the ANTICHRIST, thats right.
