As Mr. Conservative previously reported, a youtube user recently created a video after discovering something very coincidental. After a bit of research, he was able to ascertain that the name of the antichrist could have actually been hidden within the Bible – “Baraq Bamah”.
It was earlier explained:
[F]or those unaware, the antichrist is said to be a man, operating as the hand of Satan during the end days. Following the rapture (where God takes those who believe up into heaven) there is said to be seven more years until the end of the earth in which the antichrist will unite the world.
As the world falls under his leadership, many will proclaim him to be God himself and this is his true purpose according to the scripture. In an attempt to ensure as little amount of souls make it to heaven as possible, the man, with Satan’s spirit embedded within him, prepares for a war during a later time by deceiving as many as he can into following him into hell.
The word “antichrist” is only used in the Bible four times – one of which in plural form:
Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. (1 John 2:18)
Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. (1 John 2:22)
And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. (1 John 4:3)
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. (2 John 1:7)
The folks over at WND decided to do a bit more digging and after being able to get in contact with the video’s creator, he was able to clarify a few things. Only going by the name ppsimmons, he relayed, “I want to emphasize I’m not ashamed of what I put there. I’m not proclaiming he is the antichrist, or that I’m some kind of a Hebrew expert, but the word associations are indisputable. The Hebrew word for lightning is ‘Baraq’ and the word for heights or high places is ‘Bamah.’”
He eventually went on to say that although there is a “striking” coincidence between Barack Obama’s name, and the Hebrew found within the un-translated words of the Bible, he wanted to get across that he wasn’t saying with any certainty that the President of the United States was the antichrist.
After being asked if viewers should take the video with a grain of salt, he replied, “I take the middle road. I don’t take it with a grain of salt, but I don’t use the Bible like a Ouija board either. It’s not like a magical crystal ball. Clear prophecy is one thing. Making word associations is another. Just look at it. I wouldn’t take it super serious and say that’s the proof we need. It’s a little weird.”
Feelings on the matter – as was also seen in the comments section of Mr. Conservative – seem to be mixed on the matter with some expressing shock and awe, while others noting their disbelief. Showing the diversity of how the video was being perceived, just a few comments on the video clearly outline the mixed feelings:
Anyone who knows multiple languages, which I do, and attempts to translate from one to the other knows that some meaning and inflection is lost in the translation. Here, we’re translating three times: from Aramaic to Greek, and Greek to English, and English to Hebrew. A lot to be lost.
If I went through thousands and thousands of pieces of text about the devil (the whole bible!), I could find things to say [Fox News anchor] Glenn Beck is the antichrist.
It was Michael Jackson. No wait. It was George Bush. No wait. It was Paris Hilton! What the [expletive] is wrong with you people? Grow up. I bet you don’t worship the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy, too. Do you?
Now that you’re a bit more informed, take a peek at the video again and let us know – eerie coincidence or too far of a stretch?
