Although the German philosopher Frederick Nietzsche has written extensively both in favor of the Superman and against Christianity in his book called The Antichrist – I am actually referring to the dual nature of President Barack Obama: how he would love the public to see him, and how (just maybe) we should really view him.
As described in my last book:
“In October 2012 (always in jest, of course) Obama told us ‘Contrary to the rumors you have heard, I was not born in a manger, I was actually born on Krypton and sent here by my father Jor-El to save the planet Earth.’ Has any other president, joking or otherwise, ever claimed to be a savior for the planet? And should we overlook the symbolism?”
What symbolism, you ask?
There are two things to consider here. One is that I think Obama is the most likely contender for the eventual role of the Antichrist – I think he may be revealed as the Antichrist in 2016. But the evidence for this idea is covered at great length in my book, so for this article we will ignore most of the reasons I suspect he is the one and focus only on the reference to his father Jor-El. For I think there is good reason to see Jor-El as Satanic in nature. Hear me out and decide if you think anyone claiming to be Jor-El’s son might be claiming to be the Antichrist.
At the start of the original Superman movie from 1978, Jor-El is the judge presiding over a trinity led by Zod. Jor-El wears a black robe with a pentagram symbol with a serpent inside it – his family crest. The ‘El’ part of the name Jor-El is an ancient name for God, still recognizable in names like Beth-El (House of God.) The actor (Marlon Brando) was “The God-Father.” The first syllable, “Jor” – suggests considering the meaning of “Jordan” – the main river of Israel. The word means “the descender” (http://www.biblestudytools.com/dictionary/jordan/) because the river flows down to a very low elevation and does it quickly over a short distance. Other sites commenting on the name share a similar view; the consensus is that it means one who descends, falls down, or flows down. In Latin, the same sound (as jor) can be found with the more common spelling jur, as in “juris” – which means “of the law” in Latin, or as found in “jury” or “juror” – which is “one who serves by law on a jury” to judge a lawbreaker. “Jor-El” isn’t just a cool-sounding name someone made up. Its roots add up to mean “the Descender, the judger of God.” I would argue that the Superman movie’s judgment scene on Krypton (which, by the way, means “the hidden one” and is the Greek root of words like encryption) is a scene from Satan’s point of view – and how he would have liked to overthrow and cast judgment on God and Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.
Of course the Superman movie portrays Zod as the bad guy, but history is written by the victors and if Satan had been able to win the war in heaven he would undoubtedly portray God as an evil megalomaniac and portray himself as the benevolent light-bringer. With that perspective in mind, consider the beginning of the original Superman movie. Zod gives a speech to Jor-El during his sentencing which sounds a lot like what an angry God might have said: “It is therefore now become your decision. You alone can condemn us if you wish. And you alone will be held responsible by me… [long pause] You will bow down before me Jor-El! I swear it! No matter that it takes an eternity!”
It sounds outrageous, right? Am I really claiming the director INTENTIONALLY aimed to portray Jor-El from a Satanic perspective?
Consider that the director, Richard Donner, was chosen to make the Superman movie on the basis of his perspective on this. After all, he had just finished directing a little movie about the Antichrist – (the script’s original title was “The Antichrist”) – perhaps you’ve heard of THE OMEN, in which Donner introduced the character Damien to us in 1976. I argue that the director of the Superman movie knew exactly what he was doing with Jor-El. In one interview about his career, Donner comments on the Omen: “I did everything so it could have been circumstantial.” He is referring to all the fatalities that occurred near Damien. Did Damien kill them? Or were there just a lot of accidents? You don’t know for certain. I think the same could apply to the Satanic portrayal of Jor-El. Was it intentional? The evidence is circumstantial.
But in the end, we still have a godlike man in black with a serpent and pentagram symbol whose name is deeply symbolic, sending his son to Earth like a surrogate savior… And we have a president joking that he was sent here by his father Jor-El.
Obama has made other jokes too. Back in 2007, as Morgan Freeman approached Obama at a fundraiser, Obama said “This guy was president before I was,” (referring to Freeman’s role in Deep Impact – and a presidency he hadn’t even been elected into yet.) Then he made a reference to Freeman’s role as God in Bruce Almighty: “This guy was God before I was.”
Wow. No blasphemous boasting there.
And as recently as 2014: “Michele Bachmann actually predicted I would bring about the biblical end of days,” Obama said. “Now that’s a legacy — that’s big. I mean, Lincoln, Washington — they didn’t do that.” To me – and many others – Obama sounds a little too proud of the possibility when he should be embarrassed and ashamed.
Does this conclusively mean that Obama is the Antichrist? Of course not. There is no way we will get enough clear evidence to know for certain – until the restrainer is allowed to fully reveal the identity of the Antichrist to the entire world. But I believe that day is coming soon – and if you like my analysis in this article, consider reading: Antichrist 2016-2019: Mystery Babylon, Barack Obama & the Islamic Caliphate
