Newsweek Now Says That Obama Is ‘The Second Coming’

Newsweek celebrated President Obama's upcoming inauguration with a "cover" that calls the event "the second coming," an apparent reference to the return of Jesus Christ...
By definition, a "messiah" thats not Jesus Christ would have to be the Antichrist. Just sayin'...

False christs and the end times

“For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.” Matthew 24:24

Although it is now digital, Newsweek celebrated President Obama’s upcoming inauguration with a “cover” that calls the event “the second coming,” an apparent reference to the return of Jesus Christ, The Blaze reported Friday.


By definition, a “messiah” that’s not Jesus Christ would have to be the Antichrist. Just sayin’…

A post at Twitchy called the cover “creepy,” while The Blaze described it as “controversial” and “questionable.”

The cover highlights an article by former editor Evan Thomas, who once compared Obama to God

“Well, we were the good guys in 1984, it felt that way. It hasn’t felt that way in recent years. So Obama’s had, really, a different task We’re seen too often as the bad guys. And he – he has a very different job from – Reagan was all about America, and you talked about it. Obama is ‘we are above that now.’ We’re not just parochial, we’re not just chauvinistic, we’re not just provincial. We stand for something – I mean in a way Obama’s standing above the country, above – above the world, he’s sort of God,” he told Chris Matthews in 2009.

This is not the first time Newsweek has used such a theme when portraying Obama.

A cover in 2010 called him “god of all things” and another cover used religious imagery when praising the president for his latest stand supporting gay marriage.

After Obama won re-election, Newsweek portrayed him as a conqueror dressed in an 18th century uniform. Twitchy noted that a number of conservatives on Twitter were repulsed by the cover.

“I don’t tend to get indignantly offended that easily, but this Newsweek cover is makes me ill,”tweeted Ben Howe.

“The Second Coming? Really? You’ve got to be kidding me,” another person wrote.

Another Twitter user said the publication went “full Jim Jones,” a reference to the cult leader who led his followers to their death by drinking poison. Twitchy reminded readers that Newsweek was not as nice to George W. Bush when he was inaugurated in 2005. source – Examiner

Excuse me, I have to print this and vomit so as to not mess the floor.

January 19, 2013 5:08 pm

Can we actually be surprised by anything this media says about him?! He’s a liar, as are most of his cabinet. This boob surrounds himself with “yes” people then expects the American public to trust what they say and do it with a “bow”. I will not be watching the “installment” of this liar, fake, corrupter and hope at the end of this term he doesn’t just install himself as the dictator he actually is.

January 19, 2013 5:15 pm

I find him disgusting and yes some are seeing him as God but I have said from the start he will either be the Anti Christ or paving the way for him..Do not be deceived!!!!!!

January 19, 2013 6:56 pm

I agree Lynda!!!!

January 20, 2013 1:34 am

LYNDA,you need to get closer to the lord,THE LORD WARNED in 2008,the anti-christ was going to take over america,and so he has, OBAMAS job for the devil is to destroy all christians, and kill as many children as he can and eleminate them from the face of the earth,THIS IS THE BAD GUY OF BIBLE PROPHECY,he kills children,he hates christians,he doesn’t love anything,he has a short time on earth(2300 days) then hes killed and LUCIFER HIMSELF takes over his body,then all hell breaks loose..


[…] SOURCE […]

This is making me ill. Have we ( They ) really sunk this low? He is with no doubt in my mind or soul NOT the second coming and as a Christian we need to call that at every mountain top. It’s our duty. He isn’t even a leader. He is at best a puppet who is controlled by others people pushing the global / caliphate buttons. They follow the Alinsky playbook and their greed has no limits. It’s time for the sheep to turn off their t.v.’s and put down their smart phones and pay attention. UNPLUG and set yourself free.

Reasons why Obama could be the Antichrist or definitely be a forerunner as he appears to fit the criteria.

1. He perposes to be a man of peace
2. He exalts himself above God and opposes himself against Him

3. His father is the father of lies and deception
5. He blasphemes the Almighty
6. Its says in an old translation of the bible that “one will arise of a dark and evil countenance,” this is not racist but maybe is actually literal.
7. He has openly declared himself a muslim, ie he has an antichrist spirit and does not believe in the Son of God, or the Trinity.
8. He worships satan, ie there is no god but allah ie the devil.
9. It says in scripture he will not worship the god of his fathers, the founding fathers of America were christians

10. He is a murderer as Jesus said like his father before him (anyone who condones abortion and legalises it is a participant in murder)

These a just a few reasons for believing that this man could be a/the son of perdition. Its not judgemental because the facts can be confirmed with biblical quotes and prophecy.

January 19, 2013 6:40 pm

Spot on, Juni! Now if he ends up over in Rome…………

January 19, 2013 10:07 pm

As far as the murders go, what about the “Assassination List” used to target people with drones?

January 19, 2013 8:15 pm


America may not be SPECIFICALLY mentioned in end-time prophecy, at least by any overt declaration, but I believe the U.S. may be THE major player in the Tribulation! It grieves me to say this, but I think a good, circumstantial case can be made that America, the only super-power left and the heir apparent of the Old Roman Empire’s legacy (Dan 2:41-44), could become the support base of the Antichrist. This obviously would tend to place a narrow focus on the present LEADERSHIP of our beloved country.

*Let me pause here and ask you to not doubt my patriotism. Just because I will be pointing out facts that are hard to accept concerning America, and its possible role in the end times, that does not mean I do not love my country! I am only one generation of a long line of military veterans in my family who have proudly served this nation. I have ancestors and relatives who fought or served during the French and Indian War, the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, WWI, WWII, Korean War, Vietnam War, and Desert Storm. In fact, I volunteered for the U.S. Marine Corps right out… Read more »

Thank you,Leonard, for taking the time to share that. It is definitely a worthy presentation in accordance to the Word. Of course it takes the Spirit of God to breath this Truth into our spirits. In these days it is a necessity to pay attention to the Holy Spirit as He will show us the way and all we need to know.
Again, thank you for sharing your perspective.

January 19, 2013 10:09 pm

Thank you very much, Weezie, for your kind words. I started working on this essay ever since “The-One” was elected in ’08, and I couldn’t believe my beloved country had done such a foolish thing…and now AGAIN in ’12!
BTW, I probably wouldn’t have posted such a long comment if I would have known the posts are not shortened with a “See More” button! Oh well. :)

January 20, 2013 12:06 am

Yes thanks Leonard. Obama is an American tragedy..twice over. Thank you for your service!!

January 20, 2013 1:49 am

GRACE,obamas a lot more then a tragedy,HE’S the anti-christ,HE CAN AND WILL DESTROY AMERICA,this country is going into captivity,by way of foreign military troops,and they are here,prepare your self,move inland “NOW”,leave the cities,they’ll be bombed, ask the lord where to go to be safe,he’ll tell you,your out of time hurry………and warn all your friends too,and if you wind up in a fema death camp,DO NOT TAKE THE MARK OF THE BEAST,even if they kill you,theres no forgiveness for taking the mark,warn all your friends NOW………….

January 20, 2013 2:08 am

Please do NOT listen to “Arizona if you are a born-again Christian! ALL Believers will be RAPTURED to Heaven before the revealing of the Antichrist and the start of the Tribulation!

January 20, 2013 5:12 am

Actually if you carefully observe the scripture in KJV format you will realize that the believers are spared from the judgement that Christ brings with Him when He comes, NOt the tribulation of antichrists. the book of Mark clearly states that after the great tribulation he will gather his elect from the four corners of the earth. Do not think for a minute that his elect are people that arent currently saved. People who teach Pretribulation Rapture are false teachers. Dont take a preachers word for it. Do the reading for yourself. Another example is in thessalonians when paul teaches about the resurrection it says Christ descend from the heavens with a shout and the voice of the arch angel. This is another witness to His coming in Revelations….Chapter 17 if i remember correctly. God Bless Everyone

Aaron speaks the truth, all believers will go through the tribulation, but not all will survive it,(only the elect, the 144,000). “The great multitude” of believers wich have the testimony of Yahushua, knowing that He is the son of Yahuwah, and sacrificed for our sins, wont all make it through the trib. They will be raptured first though after Yahushua returns and destroys the wicked. The elect are Yahuwah’s chosen and will not be able to be killed, “these are they that have the testimony of Yahushua, AND keep the commandments of the Father” and they will have a very important duty during the trib. I think this teaching of a pre-trib or even a mid-trib rapture will cause a big dissapointment, even a “falling away” of many professed christians. This is a very important time to read your bible yourself,pray and ask our Father for guidance, do not just show up for service and let someone fill your head with idealism without confirming it in the word. And not just any translation, you will find that many passages are different in the niv than the king james. Even the new king james doesnt always line up with the king… Read more »

Well said, David and Aaron. I currently read side by side the KJV. NKJV, NIV, Aramic Bible in plain english, international standard version, english standard version.

I prefer top 2 in order KJV and NIV. I enjoy reading the different versions to see if something is being seriously twisted.

But my recommendations of bibles in order is 1st the KJV, then the NIV If you had to chose that is what I would recommend to people and in that order.

January 26, 2013 6:29 am

I didn’t read all of your post, yet.
America is most definitely in the bible. Genesis 49
Jerusalem and the Jews are NEVER referred to in the bible as Israel. Israel was the 10 tribes that after captivity went over the Caucasus mountains, then into Europe,Ireland, America’s, Canada etc.
The Jews are Judah and kenites. (learn the parable of the fig tree for more understanding) Look in your concordance the name kenite. (it’s the sons of Cain) then read John 8:42-44. Then Rev.2:9 and 3:9 those churches taught about ‘those who say their Jews but are the synagogue of satan”. Jerusalem is Jerusalem.
Genesis 48 – Jacob (also named Israel) was giving Gods blessings to Josephs sons.
His sons were Ephraim and Manasseh. To cut this short, we are Manasseh.
Genesis 49 is where God gives his blessings to the 12 tribes. Check out Joseph. So yes, we are in the bible.
The beast is the 1 world system.
Babylon is the religious and commerce part of that system.
Once you realize satan is a supernatural angel and the ones coming with him (booted out of heaven by Michael), then some of your theories might start to make sense.… Read more »

I should of found the Biblical Script where it says that the man of perdition would be known to have or be the Assyrian. we still don’t know that much about the occupier but if ‘he’ has that descent (Syrian) we could be assured! If the occupier does not have this relationship we know Bark-O could be the runner up! Do you all remember the movie “the bad seed”? This little girl fits the mindset of the evil that has encroached this land (& globe) and has to be the Lord judging this nation!
Lets say ‘he’ is not the AC but the one that was picked to bring us (last straw) down, does Obby understand that the looms will have to throw him (&her) away? The global’s plans are to round citizens up, reeducate and allow us freedoms as we progress through their program! This order to bundle all of N America into a global zone where anyone who may believe that Jesus is the only way are not allowed. This is an insult and a world w/out (my opinion) Jesus would only be Hell! They Ill-looms know Scripture and ‘they’ know the Biblical season, they also know (our… Read more »

Stay strong friend. We have God with us.

January 19, 2013 5:45 pm

“Look up, for your redemption draweth nigh” The slow process of corrupting our people has left them numb to what is right and godly anymore. This is exactly why the Bible told us to “be sober, be vigilant”, and that we “wrestle not against flesh and blood”…but “rulers of darkness”. He and whomever else is behind all of this may full some – many, really, but I know others like myself are not ignorant. It is SO easy to sniff out every lie that comes out of that TV screen, out of every news/magazine page, and out of the mouths of these political blasphemers. This stuff is sick and sometimes scary, but it also excites me to know that “redemption” – true redemption from the true Messiah draws nigh, and will overthrow these enemies. Then, all of these corrupted leaders will look over at the “man of peace” in hell and say, “Is this the man who shook the nations?” Behold your leader America.

January 19, 2013 6:29 pm

Wow, if this isn’t blatant wolf in sheeps clothing, or more like in goats clothing(satan’s minion). It seems pretty apparent, for this anti-christ to be in our oval office, that our great nation is under God’s judgement for all the its sins, millions of abortions, fornication(more people shacking up than married), out of wedlock births, corporate greed, war mongering against other nations and all the dead beat non working welfare slaves expecting freebies(2 thess 3:10, if a man doesn’t work he’s not fit to eat) that the stench of our sins has reached Heaven so strongly the God can’t stand the smell it any longer. So now judgement is here, they want our guns so they(NWO) can enslave us into their FEMA camps and issue the mark of the beast bio chip to track your every move, for the bogus monetary system is finally crashing and burning rapidly and all hell is fixing to break loose in our society. It is time to repent my fellow Americas, for if God is judging us, that’s our only hope. May I encourage all that haven’t already, to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, for He is the way, the truth… Read more »

The saddest part of this whole thing it that apparently he believes it himself and therefore will act accordingly in his decision making. His biigest donor George Soros is an apostate Jew who sold out his fellow Jews to the Nazis.Talk about history repeating itself.
