Former President Obama’s portrait was unveiled at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery on February 12, 2018. Obama chose Kehinde Wiley as the artist, a Yale University-trained painter famous for his depiction of African-Americans. (Source: cnn.com)
Obama’s portrait is unlike any previous presidential portrait, which seems fitting because in many ways he was unlike any previous president, including his foreign name, his African American heritage, his long history of homosexual relationships, his sealed historical records, and his fraudulent birth certificate. It seems fitting his portrait would also disregard the tradition of previous presidents, because during his two terms, he repeatedly disregarded and disrespected many of our nation’s traditions. For example, he issued an unprecedented number of executive orders designed to bypass our Constitutional process, he promoted and celebrated many violations of traditional family values, and he was the only president to claim, “America is no longer a Christian nation.”
In portraits of previous presidents, the backgrounds were almost always plain and dull, nothing interesting to see. (Source: AmericasPresidents.si.edu) If anything was recognizable, it was their office, their desk, or part of the White House, but Obama is shown in a completely different context, a leafy green garden, not at the White House. The unique background raises the question, is there a hidden message? If not, why not show him in the same traditional setting as previous presidents? Hiding messages in plain sight is a common practice used by followers of occult religions. Even the word occult means hidden.
Christian researcher Jonathan Kleck claims to have found a hidden message in Obama’s portrait (Source: YouTube.com). As shown in the image below showing cropped portions of the original portrait next to his highlighted version, he found the face of a serpent hidden in the leaves, including two dark round leaves perfectly positioned where the eyes would be, which he highlighted to help make them more visible. Above each eye, a flower is perfectly positioned, forming the appearance of the serpent’s eyelids or eyebrows. Between the eyes, the leaves form the bridge of the serpent’s nose. The leaves beneath each eye form the cheek bones. The outline of the serpent’s head is formed by a line of dark shadows in the gaps between the leaves.
The hidden serpent represents Satan, who hides himself in the unseen realm of the spirit where he operates under cover of darkness, so he can deceive the world into following him. He was formerly called Lucifer, the light bearing archangel who rebelled against God and lost his God given dominion in heaven. (Isaiah 14:9-17)
Replacing the imagery of the presidential office and the White House with the imagery of the hidden serpent in the garden makes Obama’s portrait background unlike any previous presidential portrait, showing his authority does not come from his office or from his position in the White House, but from Satan, fulfilling the Bible prophecy of the serpent, who is also called the dragon, who gives his power and his throne to the beast, the antichrist. (Revelation 13:2).
In the portrait, Obama and his wooden chair are positioned so close to the garden’s leaves, they engulf him and the chair. The seat of any ruler symbolizes his authority, his throne, so the position of Obama and his chair within the garden and directly under the head of the serpent shows the legal foundation of his authority comes from the serpent in the garden, referring to the place where Satan stole Adam and Eve’s dominion in the Garden of Eden through their own foolish choices. Like a crafty serpent, he hid his true motives, persuading them to eat the forbidden fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. (Genesis 3).
The leaves wrapping around Obama’s legs and the legs of his chair, even wrapping around the back of his chair, shows the serpent of the garden has his grip on both Obama and his throne. Obama is not free to go or to exercise his own authority. He is owned by the serpent, demon possessed.
Obama’s head is positioned directly where the serpent’s mouth should be because the antichrist functions as the mouth of the dragon, as shown in this passage.
5 There was given to him a mouth speaking arrogant words and blasphemies, and authority to act for forty-two months was given to him.
6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemies against God, to blaspheme His name and His tabernacle, that is, those who dwell in heaven. (Revelation 13:5-6)
Further highlighting his role as the serpent’s mouth, the light reflecting of the left side of Obama’s face forms the shape of a serpent’s fang, which is the source of the serpent’s poisonous venom that comes from his mouth and kills his victims, representing his power to not only kill their physical bodies, but to lead their souls to eternal doom through the many lies spoken by the words of the mouth of the man of sin.
Zooming in closer on Obama’s left forehead reveals a detailed sperm shape within the fang. The base of the sperm begins near Obama’s left temple at the edge of his hairline and continues up the left side of his forehead, as shown in this original, unedited image below.
Sperm is a symbol of fertility, which is a common theme among Satanists and occult religions because of Satan’s schemes to corrupt the seed of man by sowing his seed into the womb of a woman, bringing forth entities that are part human and part fallen angels, called Nephilim. Satan’s fallen angels violated the laws of God by coming to earth and mating with the daughters of men, as described in this scripture.
The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown. (Genesis 6:4)
The Nephilim were mighty men, meaning their strength and size surpassed normal human limitations. God destroyed them in the great flood, but Satan brought them back again afterwards. They occupied the Promised Land and fought against the Israelites through men like King Og of Bashan and Goliath of the Philistines.
By corrupting the human bloodline, Satan hoped to thwart God’s plan to send His Son into the earth to redeem the sins of men, shedding His blood and sacrificing His own life to pay the price for our sins as a substitute for our lives and our blood. However, the Messiah, Jesus Christ, could only redeem what God created, human beings, not corrupted beings that were only half human, Nephilim, because they are outside the boundaries of His creation.
Having failed to stop the Messiah from coming forth and accomplishing His mission, Satan continued his schemes by raising up an alternative messiah, a substitute for the true Messiah, which is the definition of antichrist. Just as God brought forth His Son, Satan is bringing forth his son, the man of sin, the antichrist, and giving him his power and authority in the earth, which explains why Obama’s head is marked with the sperm of Satan.
Throughout history, fertility has been a common theme in Satanic symbols, including the crescent moon with the star resting in the middle. The star represents the seed of Satan sown by his fallen ones into the womb of the human woman, represented by the crescent moon shape. These symbols appear throughout the world today in the flags of many nations, especially Muslim nations.
Positioning the sperm and fang on his left side is another Satanic reference. Although there is nothing inherently wrong with the left side or with being left handed, Satanists show their rebellion against God by featuring the left as one of the many ways they go against the grain, practicing the law of reversal, reversing God’s ways. Only about one out of every six people (15%) are left handed, including Barack Obama. (Source: Scientificamerican.com) Other examples of Satanic reversals include inverting the cross, inverting the pentagram, reciting the Lord’s prayer backwards, and hiding Satanic lyrics in songs which can only be heard when playing the song backwards.
Another reason why Satan identifies with the left side is he knows his followers, his trophies, will ultimately be put on the left side by God, according to the prophecy of the coming White Throne Judgment when the Lord will separate the sheep from the goats, putting the sheep on His right side and the goats on His left side. (Matthew 25:31-33)
While all occult practices are evil in the sight of God, occultists consider the left side as the dark side, associated with malicious black magic while the right side is associated with benevolent white magic, even though Satan is the source of both sides. (Source: Wikipedia.org) So, placing the fang on Obama’s left side represents the darkest form of Satanic power, which will be poured out on the whole world in the last days through the man of lawlessness, the beast.
The Bible warns us not to be ignorant of Satan’s schemes so we can stop him from taking advantage of us (2 Corinthians 2:11). He seeks billions of people to follow him into the lake of fire, but he knows no one would willingly go there, so he relies on his craftiness, his age-old tricks of deception, to lure them. Satan and his occult followers prides themselves on their ability to hide in plain sight, so they hate being exposed to the light, which is why I find great pleasure in raining on their parade by letting everyone see their evil schemes.
Skeptics might fail to see any hidden messages in Obama’s portrait, perhaps claiming these are all just coincidences, but I think there are too many coincidences to deny and they have even greater significance when viewed in the larger context of many other “coincidences” surrounding Barack Obama.
