What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet


I usually get boring spam comments on wordpress but there are some end times comments that i get that always leave me laughing. They remind me of the emails I receive from scammers telling me about their god asking them to right to me and leave me their inheritance. I hope to one day cash on this inheritance but for now, let’s deal with what’s in a name.

[….]. There are many testimonies from people online who believe this man will be Barack Obama who is to be the biblical Antichrist based off dreams they have received. I myself have had strange dreams about him like no other person. So much so that I decided to share this information.

I had a dream too, that I had the keys to heaven and the first person i allowed in was Obama. And when I awoke, there was still no heaven and no Jesus. What a life we live.

He came on stage claiming to be a Christian with no affiliation to the Muslim faith…

“In our lives, Michelle and I have been strengthened by our Christian faith. But there have been times where my faith has been questioned — by people who don’t know me — or they’ve said that I adhere to a different religion, as if that were somehow a bad thing,” – Barack Obama

…but was later revealed by his own family members that he indeed is a devout Muslim.

What does it matter whether Obama is a devout Muslim, Christian atheist? Can people be really this stupid?

So what’s in the name? The meaning of someones name can say a lot about a person. God throughout history has given names to people that have a specific meaning tied to their lives. How about the name Barack Obama? Let us take a look at what may be hiding beneath the surface…

Whatever could be the meaning behind a person’s name, we can agree generally agree they don’t usually choose their names.

In the Hebrew language we can uncover the meaning behind the name Barack Obama.

This is where they lost me. Why Hebrew meaning? None of the parents as far as I know was or is Hebrew. But I guess making sense is not these people’s strong point.

Barack, also transliterated as Baraq, in Hebrew is: lightning

baraq – Biblical definition:

From Strongs H1299; lightning; by analogy a gleam; concretely a flashing sword: – bright, glitter (-ing, sword), lightning. (Strongs Hebrew word H1300 baraq baw-rawk’)

Barak ‘O’bamah, The use of bamah is used to refer to the “heights” of Heaven.

(Obama is such a jaluo name that to start to look for Hebrew meanings is beyond ludicrous)

bamah – Biblical definition:From an unused root (meaning to be high); an elevation: – height, high place, wave. (Strongs Hebrew word H1116 bamah baw-maw’)

The day following the election of Barack Obama (11/04/08), the winning pick 3 lotto numbers in Illinois (Obama’s home state) for 11/5/08 were 666.

In the book of general ignorance I learnt recently that the number of the beast is 616. Those who think it is 666 have got the whole math wrong and i have been laughing myself silly since I found out.

Obama was a U.S. senator for Illinois, and his zip code was 60606.

This is what we call pushing it.

Seek Jesus while He may be found…repent, confess and forsake your sins and trust in the savior! Jesus says we must be born again by His Holy Spirit to enter the kingdom of God…God bless!

And here we have the final pitch.

Have an antichrist free day won’t you!

    I’ve seen similar arguments about our political leaders here. After all, since 1999, we’ve had an atheist or agnostic leader for all but for six months (when the leader was a Roman Catholic). And of course Jacinda Ardern’s response to the Christchurch terror attack, including covering her head when in Muslim settings is all the “proof” they need.

    And then there’s their argument that earthquakes are the result of human sin. Because this country is such a sinful place we get lots of earthquakes (the country gets around 20,000 per year). What they ignore is that the country has been inhabited for less than a thousand years, yet there’s evidence that the same rate of earthquakes have been going on for hundreds of thousands, probably millions of years.

    WordPress also contributes to the Spam. In the WP reader, in “more on WordPress” under your article, there are links to several fundamentalist Christian blogs, including to a post titled “The Antichrist, A Chameleon―Barack Obama In Focus” which also offers “compelling evidence” that Obama is the antiChrist.

      That someone with access to the Internet and the information that can be found therein can believe that earthquakes are caused by sin tells you that even though human beings think themselves the rational animal this is a mistake.

      On my iPhone, the damn Trump ads keep showing up at the top of my YouTube surfing. Talking about the “Antichrist”?

      More generally, what is it with these Authoritarian Submissives and their OBSESSIONS with “leaders” for good and bad. I never WORSHIPPED Barrack Obama like these failed humans worship Trump. It is DISGUSTING for a free people to act and think this way.

    I always wonder how people come up with these conspiracy theories and what they aim to achieve. I also get a lot of spam emails about inheritance. They always fascinate me.

    I have read that the scammers deliberately TRY to be ridiculous, because only the most ignorant, gullible, or foolish will respond positively. And THEY can be scammed.
