Video: Hey, did the Bible give us the name of the Antichrist?

posted at 9:45 pm on July 29, 2009 by Allahpundit

As a good little atheist, I’m going to go out on a limb and guess no — but don’t let that detract from the comic enjoyment of what you’re about to see. Believe it or not, this turd’s number six and climbing on YouTube’s “News & Politics” chart, which I guess means Birtherism is destined for a short shelf life as the most sensational conspiracy theory in modern politics.

Exit question: Does this mean the Rapture’s near? Because I haven’t even bought a gun yet.

Obama wasn’t born, Barrak Obama, he was born Barry Sotero
Thune on July 30, 2009 at 9:18 AM

That’s not what the announcement in the Hawaiian newspaper says about ‘who’ he was born.

bridgetown on July 30, 2009 at 9:27 AM

Barack Obama can’t be the Anti-Christ; he doesn’t have enough experience. But I’m pretty sure the Whore of Babylon is Michelle.

Kralizec on July 29, 2009 at 10:06 PM

And here I am I always thought that the whole of Babylon was oil (petroleum).

Wow was I waaaayy off base!

Are you kidding? You call that an antichrist? Please OBVIOUSLY RONALD WILSON REAGAN is the antichrist – hello? He has 6 letters in his first, middle, and last names! 666! That’s proof right there!

I have more evidence.

Proud Rino on July 30, 2009 at 9:28 AM

Good news! Gerald Ford was NOT the anti-Christ!

It appears to stop there – although some people seem to think JFK recovered and HE is the anti-Christ.

Mr Purple on July 30, 2009 at 9:30 AM

For everyone who cannot view it for some reason the play by play is this:

Luke 10:18 And he said unto them I beheld Satan as lightning falling from the heavens.

Lightning = Baraq in Hebrew, Also, as a side note Barack is in the Koran as a blessing from Heaven. And, my memeory is fuzzy here but I think Muhammad rode lightning from heaven to Earth or something like that and the word used for lightning was Baraq.

O or U is a conjunction used in Hebrew, i.e. Osama or Usama.

Bam-maw means Heavens/heights.

So Luke in Hebrew would have said I beheld Satan as Baraq O Bam-Maw.

Of course, I wasn’t aware that Luke contained anything on the End Times/Rapture, but I have never studied much on the End Times. It is all guesswork if you ask me.

jeffn21 on July 30, 2009 at 9:32 AM

Thune, no. Obama was not born “Barry Sotero” The “Sotero” surname comes from his Indonesian stepfather, who his mother married when he was already gradeschool age.

His natural father (or, if you prefer, his alleged natural father) is Barack Obama Sr.

If you were to look very closely at Obama’s scalp, the worse you’d see is 665. Almost, but as Maxwell Smart used to say, “Missed it by this much.”

Barneys Bullet on July 30, 2009 at 9:32 AM

OK, OK. So it’s either JFK, Obama, Reagan, Carter, Bush Jr. or Clinton. One of those six.

SIX! OMG THE PROPHECIES WERE TRUE!

Proud Rino on July 30, 2009 at 9:33 AM

Proud Rino on July 30, 2009 at 9:28 AM

Pbbbbbbbb! Please!

It is obvious that James Brady was the anti-Christ in that administration. Head wound and all.

(geez….I really didn’t wanna go there for JFK – and I feel just as bad about doing it to Brady).

I think that means it is time for me to go.

Mr Purple on July 30, 2009 at 9:34 AM

Elaborating further, the interpretation that I was referencing is Nero was the Anti-Christ, the Great Persecution was the Tribulation, and when Constantine converted to Christianity and made it the official religion of Rome, well “The kingdom of this earth is become the kingdom or our Lord, and of his Christ”.

Your mileage may vary.

Mr Purple on July 30, 2009 at 3:52 AM

But if you tip the “Z” over a quarter turn, it looks like a “N”, giving you “Nero”. An as we heard earlier, Nero was/is the anti-Christ. That confirms it!!

Actually, if I recall correctly, the “Anti-Christ”, aka “The Beast” (because the Bible speaks of many anti-christs), is supposed to bring what appears to be “peace to Israel”, helps them restore their Temple so they can worship God as in the Old Testament times, but then turns on them declaring himself to be God. Somehow I don’t see Obama as being able to do that. Though I can see him offering Arab and Israeli a beer in the white house.

AverageJoe on July 30, 2009 at 9:44 AM

I have to say, this is the stupidest video of the summer. I mean geez, lets stretch the Hebrew language to our point of view.

I would imagine the true Antichrist will be leagues more intelligent than the bumbler in DC.

mankai on July 30, 2009 at 8:23 AM

Well I would imagine the AC would be a deceiver. If he portrayed himself as intelligent then wouldn’t he in truth be dumb?

jmarcure on July 30, 2009 at 9:51 AM

Not that I give any credence to any of that, but juxtapose that “baraq u bammah” anti-Christ stuff with the katuns of Mayan priest Chalam Balam and the Mayan calendar….and the whole shooting match is gonna end around 21 December 2012.

Just after the 2012 general election and just before the Inauguration in 2013…

So, the anti-Christ gets re-elected…things go to hell, literally, around here; the good folk get to do that rapture thing (think Logan’s Run…Renew! Renew!!) and the rest of us get to fight it out amongst ourselves till the end times are upon us….say about a month after the Rapture.

As Father Guido Sarduci would ask, “Coincidente??”

I really really should have given that cute Christian girl, Amanda, a second look back in the day. Now I got to hang around and deal with the rabble after the Rapture. Bummer.

Such is the fate of a reprobate youth who misspent it all on sex, drugs and rock and roll.

ProudPalinFan on July 30, 2009 at 11:19 AM

So why doesn’t this guy use the Aramaic?…because it doesn’t fit the Aramaic, only the Hebrew.

Actually this guy jumps around:
In Luke 10:18, you have two words that are important.
Lightning and Heaven, those two words are Strong’s Hebrew, G796 and GS3772, which ironically is prounouced.
G796—-Astrape (astrapa)
GS3772—–ouranos (pronounced as uranus) which is half right

1399 refers to a flash or an arrowhead, where 796 refers to a gleam, like a spot light. That is the correct usage.

The guy is mixing old testament Hebrew, with new testament Greek.

He knows enough to be able to confuse.

Use this as your source, and enjoy, this will tell you in the best way how the words are used, in what context, and in historical correct language.
Here
Use the Strong’s search and type in the number, you can see that 1300 is not used in the NT.
Don’t bother with the other, what he did was like taking two different speeches, hundreds of years apart, and combined to words, one from Italian, and one from German to make his point.
God, how I despise some Christians…Talk about the Lord’s word in vain…

So the year 2000 or somewhere around there marks the beginning of the 7th day.

iceman1960 on July 29, 2009 at 10:59 PM
Saw Pastor John Hagee of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio laying that out with HUGE placards behind him. Interesting idea.

Daniel 9:26 has something to say about the anti-Christ’s nationality (emphasis mine):

…and the people of the prince who is to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary And its end will come with a flood; even to the end there will be war; desolations are determined.
It was the Romans who destroyed the Temple in 70 A.D. They are the “people” of the prince to come. Many believe the “prince” referenced here is the anti-Christ. That’s why many people think the anti-Christ will be Roman, Italian or European.

I don’t know my history well enough to know the extent of the Roman Empire back in the day. Looking at it that way, couldn’t he be almost any race or nationality?

Ordinary1 on July 29, 2009 at 11:22 PM

I am trying not to laugh and it isn’t working

Does this mean we can use the word ‘turd’ with impunity on Hotair? Hotair is a forgiving site, unless you speak in detail of Michigan’s Cool Cities program which has tended to get my comments removed

Perhaps AP did not mean to write ‘turd’. Perhaps he meant to say ‘tamale’ and hit the wrong keys.

AP is put on the defensive a lot and has graciously taken many a drubbing in the past, so I forgive him. I believe it is a cry for help

Advice. One does not need a gun for the rapture. I do not have full faith in the ‘rapture’ as staked out by those who retain that belief, and am not convinced by the scriptures used to prove it, although I have full faith in the revelations and prophecies of anti Christ, tribulation and apocalypse because I see the battle forces shaping every day of my life

Or, to rephrase, something has given me to see my world this way along with readng the prophets and the apostles, and a faith I cannot deny

I just don’t see the specifics in the scriptures used to define rapture, although I beg God forgiveness in advance should I be wrong.

You might need a gun for the tribulations. I see a gun as necessity, being the type of Christian that I be

entagor on July 30, 2009 at 11:43 AM

But ya gotta admit, there is a strange entertainment value to watching these things play out….and in watching folks open their wallets and send them money, because “god” said they had to.
I’m not going to disagree with you…

…but let me just say I’m a little too “close” to the subject at hand to find any real entertainment here.

Of course, my wife has also banned me from watching any “religious” shows on the History Channel or Discovery. I spend too much time yelling at the TV about their bad theology or bad scholarship.

Damian P. on July 30, 2009 at 12:09 PM

I remember watching a program on the end times and they threw out then current ideas for the anti-Christ: Koffi Anan,George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, etc. The fact that they suggested Bush made me laugh, because the bible and other supporting texts describe him/it as a charismatic leader loved by the people who will bring sweeping change and work towards a one world government. At one point, I would have suggested Obama as a possible candidate for the anti-christ but his poll numbers are tanking. If he is, the devil’s probably mad as hell right now.

Of course,I’m not expecting the end-times in my lifetime. I’m hoping for a Zombie invasion, though. I need an excuse to get a 12-gauge. :-)

Maybe if the prophecies had stated that the anti-christ was sick, sick, sick, then Obama would fit.

Here’s a good article on what his name really means: http://dancingfromgenesis.wordpress.com/2008/10/17/what-does-name-barack-barak-mean-swahili-or-arabic-etymology-obama-jokes-at-alfred-e-smith-memorial-foundation-dinner-that-barack-is-swahili-word-for-name-meaning-that-one-what-is-the-original-mean/

I’m going to have to call “BS coincidence” on this one. Given Jesus’ proclivity to speak in metaphor, I’m inclined to believe the original translation of “lightning from the heavens” over Jesus naming B. Hussein Obama personally.

Also, the passage in Luke uses the word “as” instead of “named” If you look at other passages where Jesus is directly quoted, he very rarely ever says any specific name. He refers to God as “The Father” and does not name even him. Why would he name the anti-christ so specifically?

Also, if you read other descriptions of the Anti-Christ, they all refer to the antichrist as rising from the sea looking like a hydra sea monster, or out of the dirt looking like manlambpig or something similar, with extreme supernatural powers.

There is also a description of the antichrist as a “political” figure, but again, with supernatural powers to make golden calves that walk and other crazy stuff.

There are far better reasons to oppose Obama and his policies than this. I’ll pass.

djfelix on July 30, 2009 at 2:14 PM

I John 2:18 NIV
“Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour.”

2 John 1:7
“… For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ
is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. … ”

I think we can use the Bible as a tool to argue this foolishness. Obama is easy enough to oppose without being stupid.

ProudPalinFan on July 30, 2009 at 2:33 PM

This whole video is based on a misunderstanding of Hebrew. When used as a prefix, the letter vav (“waw” in the video) means “and.” Thus, baraq o-bama translates as “lightning and a high place,” not “lightning from a high place.” The latter would use the prefix mem, a contraction of the word “min,” which means “from,” making the Hebrew for “lightning from a height” baraq mi-bama. Also, bamos (plural of bama) were high places used for idol worship; the word for heaven (also sky) is shamayim. So a Hebrew-speaker translating that Greek phrase would most likely say, “baraq mi-shamayim.”
