‘The Bible': Does The Devil Look Too Much Like President Barack Obama?

The resemblance may be uncanny, but the History Channel & ‘Bible’ EPs insist it’s merely a coincidence!

The History Channel has found itself at the center of a controversy of biblical proportions — literally. The March 17 installment of its new miniseries The Bible revealed the face of Satan for the first time, and some viewers think he bears an uncanny resemblance to President Barack Obama!

“Anyone else think the Devil in #TheBible Sunday on HIstory Channel looks exactly like That Guy?” tweeted former FOX News personality Glenn Beck.

(I won’t get into how absurd it is that Glenn referred to Obama as “that guy,” unless of course, Glenn was just trying to avoid a lawsuit. But in this case, I’m inclined to think Glenn might actually have a point.)

Of course, this wouldn’t be the first time a cable series has been accused of unfortunate misrepresentation. HBO’s Game of Thrones was accused of “killing ” former president George W. Bush when the DVD commentary for the show’s first season pointed out that one of the staked heads looked an awful lot like the once-Commander in Chief.

History Channel & ‘Bible’ EPs Officially Reject Obama Comparison

“History channel has the highest respect for President Obama,” the network said in a statement March 18. “The series was produced with an international and diverse cast of respected actors. It’s unfortunate that anyone made this false connection. History’s ‘The Bible’ is meant to enlighten people on its rich stories and deep history.”

Executive producers Mark Burnett and Roma Downey echoed the network’s sentiments with their own statements.

“This is utter nonsense,” Mark said. “The actor who played Satan, Mehdi Ouzaani, is a highly acclaimed Moroccan actor. He has previously played parts in several Biblical epics — including Satanic characters long before Barack Obama was elected as our President.”

“Both Mark and I have nothing but respect and love our President, who is a fellow Christian,” Roma said. “False statements such as these are just designed as a foolish distraction to try and discredit the beauty of the story of The Bible.”

What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Does the Devil on The Bible look exactly like President Obama, or are people fishing for something that simply isn’t there? Cast your vote below, then drop a comment with more of your thoughts!

You know when I get to talk to the Lord about my sin I bet you he doesnt even being up my welfare issue, but he does say that he is the only judge and anyone else who thinks this is a sinner. So you enjoy your discussion with God someday. And by the way with that attitude I surprised the lord didnt take your tv out the nites that the BIBLE was being air because you must not have heard any of it.

Who said the deveil had to be black or brown for that matter; why not white? Like all the other characters, who if one wants to be factual should all be brown. Which blue eyed blonde comes from that part of the world?

I think that this might’ve been done intentionally. If anyone knew who Obama is and didn’t want to create some kind of incident, then they would have used makeup to make him look different, even if it was just a little bit different.

So its the belief that God is white & the Devil is black? Who said this is fact & where is the proof.?..This what makes this World & the people in it simply pathetic..I pray & serve God daily, yet I have never associated color with him..because I simply don’t care…Color should not matter.. And in the case of President Obama; for those that call him the Devil; if he is the Devil then so is ever single American President before him; they all lie; some are far worse than him; with their adulterous ways… I think it’s time to stop putting blame & accept some responsibility for our nation the time we spend casting blame should be time spent giving thanks for what we have & asking God to help us move forward in building a stronger economy…FYI I respect, & admire President Obama as a Man, A Father, A husband & as a President..I will continue to pray for him; to preserve especially amongst people that live with hate & judge him not for the Person or the work he does; but for the color of his skin…I sometimes wonder if such people believe in God..they may but fact is they are not Godly people!!

Obama is 44th president of the United States of America and the word “Beast” is mentioned in its singular form 44 times in the book of Revelations. We can now see where this is all coming from and leading to.

“Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six”. Revelation 13:16-18

A=1 B=2 C=3 D=4 E=5 F=6 G=7 H=8 I=9 J=10 K=11 L=12 M= 13 N=14 O=15 P=16 Q=17 R=18 S=19 T=20 U=21 V=22 W=23 X=24 Y=25 Z=26.

Barack: 2+1+18+1+3+11=36
Hussein: 8+21+19+19+5+9+14=95
Obama: 15+2+1+13+1=32
Add these: 36+95+32=163.
Multiply by the Beast: 163 x 666 = 108,558.
Split and Add: 108 + 558 = 666.

Barack Obama Born 4 August 1961 the 216th day of the year. 216= 6x6x6.

Take note of the SEVERE occult numerology preprogrammed by Illuminati satanists into Barack Obama’s forthcoming Jerusalem visit. Just like the recent Papal Conclave it centers around the occult number “13”.

Barack Obama will be present in Jerusalem on Friday 22 March 2013 = 3.22/13 (US Format) = 3.22/2013 = 3+2+2+2+0+1+3 = 13. 3.22/13 “Skull & Bones” + 13. “Skull & Bones” = 666 13 = Death.

3.22/13 is exactly 33 years from the day since the official inauguration of the Georgia Guidestones often referred to as the Devils 10 Commandment’s or bench mark for the “New World Order” They are inscribed in 8 languages including English, Spanish, Swahili, Hindi, Hebrew, Arabic, Chinese, and Russian. Swahili is Obama’s home town Kenyan Language.. 1st Commandment “Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature”.

Jesus was also crucified at 33 years. Could we see possibly see a mimic in Jerusalem on the Death and resurrection of Christ?

“And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast”. Revelation 13.3

The date set for the Papal conclave also centered entirely around the occult number “13”. 3.13/13 = 03/13/2013 = 0+3+1+3+2+0+1+3 = 13. The exact time was 7:06 pm (local Roman time), which is 7+6 =13 and adds up to another 13. The new pope was chosen exactly 13 days after Benedict resigned

Obama REPRESENTS THE DEVIL…so what is the problem. Obama lies (the Devil is the liar from the beginning), Obama condones cold blooded murder (the Devil is the murderer from the beginning (inspired Cain to murder his brother Able), Obama represents the evils and riches of the world (Jesus told the World rulers of His day, “Your father is the Devil’ ) and Obama is the promoter and practitioner of sodomy (Adoni Elohim stated sodomy was a vile filthy act i.e. “fecal sex”) and that marriage was God ordained as a Holy Sacrament of a physical union between ONLY a man and a woman. This program shows the history of the One God by those who both prayed and knew the scriptural history of the Bible using documentation. Historically ANY nation who DEVIATED from the Laws of the God of Israel suffered the promised judgments of God including ISRAEL who rejected their Law Giver and murdered Him too. Just look at their history!
Obama in word and deed represents the Devil and, America is damned!

Ohhhh he who has not sinned cast the first stone. Please we are all liars at one time or another. I do not agree with Obama and I am a strong Christian who would love to see someone else in office but to call him the devil is a little extreme. America is not damned. The vast majority of Americans are still Christians since this country consistasts of mainly catholics and Christian faiths from non denominational to Bible Baptists. Again I have NEVER supported Obama I think he STINKS as president, but do I think he is the devil…..for sure NOT!

You forgot the part where Satan was an angel who was kicked out of heaven because he thought human beings were kinda stupid. Which we are, Also, God murdered thousands of people throughout the bible, flooded the entire planet when things didn’t go his way, and even told a women to kill a man with a tent peg. A+ god skills right there. What a splendid guy.

In the Bible, black and darkness are EVIL AND IGNORANT. e.g. “PROVERBS 4: 19 The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble”.

Based on your comment, I wonder which God, you serve…& how much do you know about the bible, the scriptures & God..”Love thy neighbor”, in that God did not & its not written; love thy neighbor based on who they are; there sexual practices; etc, etc..I have friends that are homosexuals; bisexual & I love them..as God expects of me…I leave what people do; who they are to the judgement of God..If you call President Obama the devil based on those things; then the more than half of the World is the devil..I do believe you are out way of line; you are speaking of someone’s father & husband as promoter & practitioner of Sodomy; a man who the World knows as a good Father & loyal Husband..You speak of Jews as well; but you are a coward to just say “Jews” instead you say people of Israel.. I love Jews..I work with many & they are good people. ..God put you on this earth; to live with love & every1 for who they are; not to Judge; Judgement is left to God.. Its quite clear you are a person filled with hate; discrimination., & it can only make you a ungodly person..May God have mercy on you

IF you listen to Glenn Beck you will see he is using the words: ‘that guy’ as a gag to see how long they could avoid mentioning his name otherwise there is a fine-kidding around. This is most probably just coincidence. If it were a George Bush lookalike no one would be offended. Obama is not exactly God who should not be blasphemed!
