Newsweek cover calls Obama's inauguration 'The second coming'
Examiner.com ^ | 1/18/13 | Joe Newby

Posted on 01/19/2013 10:12:51 AM PST by 444Flyer

Although it is now digital, Newsweek celebrated President Obama's upcoming inauguration with a "cover" that calls the event "the second coming," an apparent reference to the return of Jesus Christ, The Blaze reported Friday.

A post at Twitchy called the cover "creepy," while The Blaze described it as "controversial" and “questionable.”

The cover highlights an article by former editor Evan Thomas, who once compared Obama to God.

“Well, we were the good guys in 1984, it felt that way. It hasn't felt that way in recent years. So Obama’s had, really, a different task We're seen too often as the bad guys. And he – he has a very different job from – Reagan was all about America, and you talked about it. Obama is ‘we are above that now.’ We're not just parochial, we're not just chauvinistic, we're not just provincial. We stand for something – I mean in a way Obama’s standing above the country, above – above the world, he’s sort of God," he told Chris Matthews in 2009.

This is not the first time Newsweek has used such a theme when portraying Obama.

Blasphemous cowards. Why don't they just compare him to someone he admires like MohaMad.

Isn’t the Second Coming the climax of the Apocalypse? To have the End of the World twice within as many months is unusual.

Blasphemous cowards.

0bama and his convention denied G-d three times, and they did not follow Him in the first place.

Of course, I don't know what St. Peter will do, but I wouldn't want to be in their shoes when they leave this mortal coil.

THE SECOND COMING

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.

Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight: a waste of desert sand;
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Wind shadows of the indignant desert birds.

The darkness drops again but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

One of the dreams of the left is to eliminate Christianity and replace it with totalitarian control. 0bama is the embodiment of their dreams.

One more thought. When I was a young kid, Seals and Crofts came out with a song called “King of Nothing.” (1974) In reality, that is Bronco Bama.

2 Thessalonians 2:3-4

King James Version (KJV)

3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

2 Thessalonians 2:8-11

King James Version (KJV)

8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

Newsweek on-line doesn't have a chance - their bread and butter readers enjoy predigested liberal propaganda. People smart enough to use a computer expect more. I suspect they'll fail...

Freaky, because he keeps accepting his followers comparing him to Jesus Christ and God. The Dems love to do it, even as they booed God and Jerusalem as Israel’s capital at the Dem convention.

Look what happened to Herod, after he teamed up with Roman governor Pilate and they became ‘friends’ since they both wanted to crucify Jesus Christ:

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Acts+12:21-23&version=KJV

Acts 12:21-23

King James Version (KJV)

21 And upon a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his throne, and made an oration unto them.

22 And the people gave a shout, saying, It is the voice of a god, and not of a man.

23 And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the glory: and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost.
