I have studied The Bible most of my life and my approach to religion has been most closely represented by the Harrison Ford character in the film Mosquito Coast than virtually any other portrayal I could otherwise provide. With that in mind please watch every one of the videos at this site after reading the text, especially the last one as supplemental material to the below article. I am always looking for and asking questions, so I am not prone to believe everything written down for me that migrated out of the European Dark Ages. Rather I look to such material for the story behind the story—which is often richer than the superficial metaphors released through the censors of history. But with that said I love the History Channel’s Bible series immensely and think it has been a wonderful epic that I hope restores some sense of goodness and value upon our society. In that regard, I believe that Mark Burnett and his wife Roma purposely made up the Satan actor Mehdi Ouzaani to look like President Obama in the History Channel epic for a damn good reason which I will explain. But first listen to what Zo has to say about the Devil and the Obama resemblance on PJTV.
To understand the situation in Hollywood and why wonderful producers like Mark and Roma Burnett would give money to Obama and the Democrats yet turn around and make Obama the Devil in their fantastic rendition of The Bible is to understand the story of the Prophet Daniel. When Nebuchadnezzar attacked Jerusalem and took the Hebrews as slaves back to Babylonia to be fattened on its captured nations the pompous king held a fear over the slaves similar to how Obama commands respect. Nebuchadnezzar came to feel that he was superior to any monarch who ever lived and the Hebrew people were required to bow at his feet and worship as he mandated. For the most part the Hebrew people publicly did as they were told while their true religion was forced underground. Even the great Prophet Daniel played along with the fanatical Nebuchadnezzar so to preserve his life making himself available to Nebuchadnezzar so that he could best serve his people—the captured and enslaved Hebrews from Jerusalem. Earning the trust of Nebuchadnezzar Daniel after successfully interpreting the dreams of several of the King’s nighttime visions had earned the right to address him frankly.
“Do I see here the sacred gold and silver vessels that King Nebuchadnezzar brought from our holy Temple in Jerusalem?” Daniel said aloud. “O King, did you and your dancing-girls and your lords and their wives drink wine from those holy vessels? Did you toast the idols of your gods and gold, silver, iron, wood, and stone? Did you do that with the holy vessels, O King?” Daniel is of course speaking of the destruction of King Solomon’s Temple where the Holy of Holies was ransacked and destroyed.
The king’s eyes became cunning. “We meant no disrespect, Daniel. But tell me the meaning of those words and I will put a chain of gold around your neck, give you purple robes, and make you third in command of my kingdom. Unlock this secret to me, Daniel, and these honors shall be yours.”
Daniel worried whether he could dare tell the king that he would soon become insane and that Nebuchadnezzar stood to be condemned to death. He worried that telling the king this upcoming fact might bring the royal sword across his neck, so he began to speak slowly once an old woman who was the discarded former queen and wife of Nebuchadnezzar prompted him by forming a warning with her silent lips—“Give the king an answer. Give it quickly.” So Daniel spoke, “Let your gifts be for yourself. Give your rewards to another.” Upon that the king’s hand fell to the hilt of his dagger but Daniel now knew his course, knew that this king was a sinner, an idolater, a living violation of every law of God. His voice now took on an edge. “O King, the Most High God gave your father glory and majesty, and when Nebuchadnezzar hardened his heart, the Most High turned him into a beast until he knew that God ruled the kingdom of men. But you, his son have not humbled yourself. Instead, you have fought the Lord. You have brought the utensils from God’s Temple and defiled them with toasts of our own gods. The true God, who puts breathe into you, who gives you life itself, you have not honored. So He sent a living hand to write His judgment on you.”
Nebuchadnezzar did not like the prophetic warning which went on to explain that Darius the Mede would take over a divided kingdom between the Persians and the Medes. But Nebuchadnezzar soon fell ill to insanity and lost his capacity to rule, as Daniel had predicted. When Darius the Mede arrived unchallenged at the gates of the kingdom, the Hebrews fell to their knees to honor their new conqueror of which Daniel quickly befriended to earn the release of his people hopefully from this new tyrant.
Things got off to a rough start between Daniel and Darius especially when the new king became angry and locked Daniel into the lion’s den. But Darius came around once he had second thoughts and returned hopefully in time to save Daniel from consumption only to find the lions purring like kittens at Daniel’s feet. This started a chain reaction of events that ended up freeing the Hebrews from their captivity in Babylon.
Fast forward to the Book of Revelations written by a shadowy “second John” figure in the time of Nero which is where the number of the beast 666 is derived from by adding up the consonants of his name. The essence of this portion of the bible is to properly articulate the influence of Satan upon the world, the same Satan who acted as “The Evil One” or the Devil in Christ’s three temptations. Satan was animated in The Bible by an unrelenting hatred against God and all goodness, Satan is engaged in a world-wide and age-long struggle against God, ever seeking to defeat the divine plans of grace toward God’s making and to seduce men to evil and their ruin. As “the deceiver of the whole world” (Rev. 12:9), his primary method is that of deception—about himself, his purpose, his activities, his coming defeat. Satan was the seducer of Adam and Eve (Gen. 3:1-7; II Cor. 11:3); he insinuated to God that Job serve Him only for what he got out of it (Job 1:9; he stood up against Israel (I Chron. 21:1) and God’s high priest (Zech. 3:1-2). Under divinely imposed limitations he may be instrumental in causing physical affliction or financial loss (Job 1:11-22; 2:4-7; Luke 13:16; II Cor. 12:7). He snatched away the Word of God sown in the hearts of the unsaved (Matt 13:19), sows his counterfeit Christians among the sons of the kingdom (Matt. 13:25, 38-39), blinds the minds of men to the Gospel (II Cor. 4:3-4), and induces them to accept his lie (II Thess. 2:9-10). Often he transforms himself into “an angel of light” by presenting his apostles of falsehood as messengers of truth (I Cor. 11:13-15. He clashes in fierce conflict with the saints (Eph. 6:11-18). Is ever alert to attempt to destroy them (I Pet. 5:8), and hinders the work of God’s servants (I Thess. 2:18). Certain members of the church who were expelled are said to have been delivered to Satan, but with the design to produce their reformation, not their destruction (I Cor. 5:5; I time. 1: 20). Now, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to compare the Presidency of Barack Obama to the Biblical Satan if all the references mention above are investigated and read in context to compare the work of Obama objectively to that of Satan. I would dare say that the two are nearly parallel to each other. Obama’s presidency is built entirely on deception, even down to simple statements about Benghazi, and Fast and Furious. I don’t even believe him when he discusses his Final Four Bracket picks. Based on Barack Obama’s actions, I believe he is a perpetual liar that is intentionally deceitful and has aims very comparable to the Biblical definition of Satan.
If I were Mark Burnett and his very nice wife Roma, who believes intently in The Holy Bible, and I looked around Hollywood and knew that I was surrounded by many who have been seduced by evil convinced Obama is an “angel of light,” I might be very cautious of my actions and work very hard not to earn the reprimand of my peers who are acting as agents of evil. Like Daniel the Prophet I might fear the axe across my neck for speaking the truth. But in honor of my spirituality and my very soul I would make Obama the Devil in my miniseries so that I was clean in the same way that Daniel spoke carefully in his wording to King Nebuchadnezzar about the downfall of his kingdom. I believe the Burnetts knew exactly what they were doing and their purpose was for the higher aims of God by naming an evil so evident on Earth with an artistic and acceptable plot device.
To name the evil in public for many people means doom, their careers will be ended, and their families hunted down and killed by skiing accidents and other tragedies. (Refer to Sonny Bono’s skiing accident several years ago.) Mark Burnett is not stupid. The best thing to do if you’re a powerful television producer working in Hollywood surrounded by the encroachment of evil, and are powerless to stop it, is to at least do as Daniel did and make yourself close to King Nebuchadnezzar and Darius the Mede. You give a little money to Satan to turn his gaze away from your underground worship and in California “faith” has certainly been pushed underground. If Burnett wants to keep his ability to produce shows like The Bible so that he can do great social good through his connections, he has to play the game like Daniel did because evil is in charge. The Burnetts did a bold thing with The Bible television series because they referenced the 800 million pound elephant that everyone has been thinking about when it comes to Barack Obama. Most everyone with a clean mind has been uttering for some time that they believe Obama is the Anti-Christ. They fear to say such things in public because of progressive ridicule, but around the water coolers, restaurants, and dining room engagements, Satan and Obama go together in conversation as meaning the same thing.
I do not believe it is a coincidence that Obama decided within a week of this controversy caused by Mark and Roma Burnett’s very controversial Satanic reference to suddenly make appeasement with Israel and fly to The Holy Land to visit Biblical relics and show support of Christian and Jewish faith. In the world of deception which falls from the Obama Administration like snowflakes in a snowstorm the actions speaks louder than the implication. For those who believe in Satan and either the historical context of The Bible, or even the metaphorical—did anyone ever believe that Satan or the epitome of evil would show up with a long red tail, horns and a pitchfork? Evil never appears as something disgusting in any culture on Earth, it always comes as a trickster and deceiver of human minds. It comes through enchantment and popularity—and can be seen best when a president who has had an adversarial relationship with Israel which seems to mimic the modern-day tensions between the Islamic and Jewish faith over the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, flies Air Force One days after he has been called Satan by one of the most popular television programs in history to prove that he is not what he’s being accused of. Alarm bells should be sounding.
The evidence is easy to see but difficult to admit, and I think the Burnett’s message is quite clear. They did a good thing—a risky thing, but it needed to be done. Barack Obama might as well be the Nebuchadnezzar of Hollywood. In the film business the same forces that put Obama in The White House control all the major trade publications, so appeasing them is paramount if one wants to stay in business. Obama like Nebuchadnezzar may not be the physical manifestation of Satan, but they are certainly agents of evil no matter what social perspective is analyzing history. Satan would never appear in a form on Earth where its appearance would be repulsive to the societies of mankind. Satan might appear behind the mask of a woman’s breasts in a pornographic endeavor, behind the bright lights of a casino, or behind a spread the wealth president shielded by civil rights sins of the past through guilt and complacency. Ultimately Satan appears behind a smiling face with bright white teeth to conceal an agenda of destruction as the intentional aim. Such a human mask would have access to the entire world as it transforms itself into “an angel of light” by presenting apostles of falsehood as messengers of truth. I stand with the Burnetts, their Bible series is timely and important, and never more needed in how it has forced society the world over to look hard at itself and question if the path we are all on is the correct one, and that the Mark of the Beast is metaphorically stamped upon the head of the current resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
