Obama, ISIL, and the Bible Code
The U.S. President Barak Obama opened the “Pandora Box” of rousing to action of newly created ISIS, an offshoot of Muslim Brotherhood in the Middle East. However, who is the real Obama and what role Obama will play in the end-time prophecy? In this article, we will see how Obama was hidden in the prophecies in the books Ezekiel and Jeremiah.
And Yehovah made a covenant with Avram, saying,
I have given this land to your seed, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the River Euphrates, (Gen 15:18)
This Covenant of the Land was confirmed for Avraham’s offspring: Yitzhak and Ya’akov. Now, let us return to our days.
ISIS or ISIL and how it matters
President Barak Obama’s Middle East policy created the breeding ground in the Middle East and North Africa for ISIS and the Muslim Brotherhood in 2009 when he made his tour in the region and ignited multiple conflicts which we call today “the war against radical Islam.” But his initiative was nothing less than incitement of urging on and spurring on revolt of the radical Islamic forces against the moderate regimes in the Middle East and North Africa which even spread beyond the region. Thus, the U.S. President Obama opened the “Pandora Box” of rousing to action of newly created ISIS: an offshoot of the already existed extreme organization Muslim Brotherhood.
It was President Barak Obama who knew very well that the region and Syria in particular was a powder keg of the Middle East when he ignited the fuse of the Arab Spring. It was President Barak Obama, the only political figure in the world, who called the terrorist group ISIS by his own definition: ISIL. No other high ranking official has ever called the terrorist organization ISIL, but Barak Hussein Obama.
What is the difference between the acronyms ISIS and ISIL? The acronym ISIS stands for Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, while ISIL stands for Islamic State of Iraq and Levant.
A terrorist group which was initially a branch of al-Qaeda quickly developed into a formidable force (not without help from outside) and became ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria); name the terrorists took from the territory they conquered: Iraq and Syria.
ISIS quickly grew (along with other terrorists groups which the West calls “moderate”) to become like a terrifying swarm of locusts devastating large areas in Iraq and Syria. That invasion was spreading fear and terror in the region until President Putin intervened in the war in 2015 to save Russia’s last stronghold in the region and in the world: Syria.
As said, Barak Obama is the only one who calls this terrorist group Islamic State of Iraq and Levant. But what is Levant? Levant was a historical province in the Arab Caliphate spreading from Southern Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, and Israel. Comparing the territory of the historical Levant to the land YHVH promised to the descendants of Avraham, Yitzhak, and Ya’akov, we see that Levant is almost the same territory as the land described in its boundaries in the Deeds of the Land, as described in Gen 15:18: from the river of Egypt to the great river, the River Euphrates.
Thus having called the territory conquered by the Islamic terrorists “ISIL”, Islamic State of Iraq and Levant, President Barak Hussein Obama sees the Biblical land of Israel as a part of the Islamic State Caliphate and gave it a larger legitimacy than ISIS had not even asked for.
The anti-Israel bias in the U.S. foreign policy towards Israel is no secret for any one in the world during Barak Obama’s presidency, even his personal animosity towards Israel’s PM Benjamin Netanyahu. Recently, this anti-Israel bias resulted in the United Nations Security Counsel ill-famed Resolution 2334 which was passed just before the Jewish Festival of Chanukah. This should not be taken as a mere coincidence, but as a deliberate act of animosity of Barak Obama towards Israel.
Who is the real Obama?
But who is the real Obama and where did he come from?
Kristallnacht occurred on the 9th of November 1938 and almost exactly to the day seventy years later on the 4th of November 2008 a new president of America won the election in order to leave “the legacy” of the most anti-Semitic and anti-Israel US president ever.
However, in order to answer this question we need to realize that Barak Hussein Obama came as if from nowhere. Known to no one in America, he quickly became a junior U.S. Senator and only in two years he appeared on the political scene as a presidential candidate. In two more years: the U.S. President Barak Obama was ready to decide, as a leader of the world, the destiny of the countries he deemed for change; and soon the leader of the world wasted no time to step in action.
In January 2009, President Obama was inaugurated after he won a landslide victory in November 2008. One of his first calls to foreign leaders was to President Abbas of the Palestinian Authority, to whom he vowed to engage immediately in pursuit of a permanent Arab-Israeli settlement, understand “two-state” solution, which he did.
Five months later, in June 2009, President Barak Obama made his “A New Beginning” tour in the Middle East, which was seen as nothing less than a U-turn in the long-term U.S. foreign policy towards the friendly Muslim countries in the Middle East and North Africa. And Barak Obama did not have to await long for the first fruits of his agenda.
The so-called Arab Spring began on 17 December 2010 first in Tunisia, and spread throughout the countries of the Middle East and North Africa. Accidently or not, after that tour the “moderate” regimes in Egypt, Libya, and Syria started falling down one after the other as dominos in order to become what is now known as “the Arab Spring”.
Major insurgencies in Syria, Libya, and Yemen took place along with civil uprisings in Egypt and Bahrain, large street demonstrations in Algeria, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Morocco, and Oman, and minor protests even in Saudi Arabia. The wave of initial revolutions and protests faded by mid-2012, as some moderate regimes in North Africa did not fall despite Barak Obama’s intent.
Obama and the Bible code
Having said that, let us return to Elohim’s prophecy and more particularly to a hidden message encoded in two verses in the Hebrew text of Ezekiel Chapter 1. This encoded message was discovered in 2008, before Barak Obama’s election, by Dr. Robert Wolf and Joel Gallis (Joel Gallis passed away in 2010) from Redemption5768 Ministry.
Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tuval, and prophesy against him. And you shall say, Thus says the Master Yehovah, See, I am against you, O Gog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tuval. (Eze 38:2-3)
This encoded message is concerning “Obama”.
Now, starting from the last letter alef of the ninth word in Hebrew, נשׂיא nasi, which means prince, ruler, or … president in Eze 38:2 and counting every seventh letter from right to left, we will find the word אובאמה in Hebrew, or obama.
In the Hebrew text of Eze 38:2-3, “Obama” appears like this:
(Eze 38:2) בן־אדם שׂים פניך אל־גוג ארץ המגוג נשׂיא ראשׁ משׁך ותבל והנבא עליו׃
(Eze 38:3) ואמרת כה אמר אדני יהוה הנני אליך גוג נשׂיא ראשׁ משׁך ותבל׃
Can we go even further into the prophecy and see more to it than that?
We should not miss to see some peculiarities in the Obama code.
Why the ninth word? We should recall that the largest ever terrorist act on American soil was in the ninth month of the secular calendar.
Why the seventh letter? The election year 2008 was the seventh anniversary of 9/11. Notice also that the number of the words between the first word that has א and the last word that has ה spelling אובאמה is eleven.
Why from right to left? Perhaps, because the political power in America in 2008 shifted from right to left of the political spectrum.
And this is how the name Obama is spelled in Hebrew from right to left: אובאמה or in Israel it is spelt like this: אובמה. The only difference between the two spellings of Obama is that in the modern Hebrew the second letter א alef is omitted, but this does not change the prophecy in Ezekiel, where the full spelling is given to us. אובמה is a short variant of אובאמה in modern Hebrew, as it is acceptable for a foreign name to be spelt in different ways.
Anyhow, as we learned, the name “Obama” is encoded in the Bible prophecy, as he came into power seven years after 9/11, and for whatever reason he came on the political stage, Obama is there to play a significant role in the end time world events. Notice again the context of the prophecy in Eze 38:2-3: I am against you, O Gog.
In the prophecy in Ezekiel 38 and 39, Gog is the mysterious ruler of the no less mysterious land of Magog. Gog of Magog, which is known in Judaism by the misnomer “Gog and Magog”, has been troubling the end-time prophecy commentators for a long time, until 2008. Without any exceptions, all commentators unanimously have concluded that the land of Magog is Russia, and therefore, the ruler of Russia must be Gog, Gog of Magog. Presently, the ruler of Russia is Vladimir Putin and all attention is being given to him. We should admit that Putin and Russia are strong contenders for being Gog and Magog, until 2008.
Now, we have the revelation of the Bible code “Obama”.
Is Obama “Gog of Magog” prophesied by Ezekiel? According to the prophecy he might be, or somehow he will be involved in the end time events.
According to this interpretation of the Bible Code found by Dr. Robert Wolf and Joel Gallis from Redemption5768 Ministry, Obama will be the one responsible for the final war of Gog of Magog, or World War III, when he seeks to divide the land of Israel, as he indeed seeks to divide the Promised Land by giving the so-called West Bank and YHVH’s city Jerusalem to the Palestinians.
We can again invoke the prophecy in Joel regarding the matter of the consequences of dividing the land:
then I shall gather all gentiles, and bring them down to the Valley of Yehoshaphat (Yehovah judges). And I shall enter into judgment with them there for My people, My inheritance Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and they have divided up My land. (Joe 3:2)
However, can we find a second witness, as required in the Torah, which will confirm the identity of the man who seeks to divide the land of Israel?
Let us consider another hidden message, this time in Jer_46:26-28 which undoubtedly reveals the identity of the “Nebukadrestsar” of Babylon (this code appears to reveal a second layer of the prophecy concerning the king of Babylon). We read in Hebrew thus:
(Jer 46:27) ואתה אל־תירא עבדי יעקב ואל־תחת ישׂראל כי הנני מושׁעך מרחוק ואת־זרעך מארץ שׁבים ושׁב יעקוב ושׁקט ושׁאנן ואין מחריד׃
(Jer 46:28) אתה אל־תירא עבדי יעקב נאם־יהוה כי אתך אני כי אעשׂה כלה בכל־הגוים אשׁר הדחתיך שׁמה ואתך לא־אעשׂה כלה ויסרתיך למשׁפט ונקה לא אנקך׃
Using again the seven letter skip-backward pattern from right to left starting at the Hebrew word for “from the land” in verse 27, we find the same code, the same name of the person called אובאמה who in Eze 38 and 39 is called Gog of the land of Magog, but here he is called the king of Babylon, which is another attribute to that person: “Obama” is a king of “Babylon”. For more insight in the Bible prophecy, refer to Chapter “Jeremiah 50 and 51. Will Elohim Use Russia to Judge America?” from the present author’s book The Reckoning of Time.
We read verses 26 and 27, the verses which deal with Elohim’s promise to bring Israel back from the foreign land thus:
And I shall give them into the hand of those who seek their lives, into the hand of Nebukadrestsar king of Bavel and into the hand of his servants. And afterward it shall be inhabited as in the days of old, declares Yehovah. But as for you, do not fear, O My servant Ya’akov and do not be discouraged, O Israel. For look, I am saving you from afar, and your descendants from the land of their captivity. And Ya’akov shall return, and shall have rest and be at ease, with no one disturbing. Do not fear, O Ya’akov My servant,” declares Yehovah, for I am with you. Though I make a complete end of all the nations to which I have driven you, yet I do not make a complete end of you. But I shall reprove you in judgment, and by no means leave you unpunished.
On the second layer of this prophecy we find what the Rabbis call the Final Redemption of Israel. The code name “Obama” appears again, with the same spelling in Hebrew as in Ezekiel. The mathematical probability that even one of these codes, let alone two, would occur randomly in the Hebrew Scripture and in perfect agreement with the context of the text on the surface is astronomical and simply cannot be ignored.
Therefore, we verified that the code name “Obama” appears [at least] twice in the entire Hebrew Scripture (in Eze_38:2-3 and in Jer_46:27-28), which we may consider it to be very significant.
There is no doubt that as the prophecies in Ezekiel and Jeremiah are written by the Omniscient One, so are the codes in them, since humanly it is impossible to be created, or to occur randomly.
Thus, we have two witnesses, as required by the Torah, which testify to the person behind the mysterious end-time Gog. Without any doubt, as witnessed in the prophecies in Ezekiel and Jeremiah, and probably elsewhere, Obama is that person Gog of the land of Magog.
The prophecy are not predictions, but warnings. The prophets of the Bible are not fortunetellers, but watchmen on the wall to forewarn the people of the coming danger. Their missions were to bring the children of Israel back to the Covenant of Elohim and when they disobeyed the words of the prophets, then they were told the grim future.
By the same token the Bible codes are not predictions either. Very often we realize that they have existed only when they are fulfilled. The Bible codes may or may not be realized into actions. And this is why: because even the darkest prophecy can be diverted or annulled at a certain condition; and this condition is called repentance.
Repentance is required. Repentance can change everything. If America repents and turns away from the path of destruction, the Obama codes and prophecies may not realize, but will America repent?
Writing about whether Biblical prophecy is more of a prediction or a warning, Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, former Chief Rabbi of the United Kingdom said,
Precisely because Judaism believes in free will, the human future can never be unfailingly predicted. People are capable of change. God forgives. As we say in our prayers on the High Holy Days: ‘Prayer, penitence and charity avert the evil decree.’ There is no decree that cannot be revoked. A prophet does not foretell. He warns. A prophet does not speak to predict future catastrophe but rather to avert it. If a prediction comes true it has succeeded. If a prophecy comes true it has failed.
May we merit seeing the coming of our Mashiach speedily in our days.
