Obama “Tearing Back Curtains”—Time to Prep for Apocalypse?

A recent comment by former President Obama reveals the depth to which many are committed to a global, one-world government—as if we needed any more signs. However, more importantly, the imagery he used should be shocking to most Americans—casting a light on the demonic nature and character this government will manifest. Are we heading towards Armageddon? You may want to step-up your apocalypse prepping!

Obama made the comment during a two-hour virtual commencement for graduates of historically black colleges and universities. While criticizing the nation’s (i.e., Trump’s) response to the coronavirus, he stated:

“This pandemic has fully, finally torn back the curtain on the idea that so many of the folks in charge know what they’re doing.”

Clearly, he was drawing upon the imagery of God’s tearing of the great curtain in the Temple’s Holy of Holies at the moment of Christ’s atoning death on the Cross:

“And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom.” (Matthew 27:50-51).

If you’re a God-fearing individual, Obama’s flippant and blasphemous use of this imagery should make your blood boil.

Let’s break down what Obama was really getting at… and what it means for you.

“Tear Back the Curtain”—Obama Alludes to Our Need for One World Government

Obama made his comments in the context of what he views as failed political leadership—exposed by, in this case, the coronavirus pandemic. He was implying that our current system of government is not just inept but, at its very core, incapable of achieving the kind of progress required for the perfection of humanity.

His point was that folks should now see they need access to a “better” system—a global socialist government (of course with him in a leadership position).

In other words, limited government and conservative (biblical) values are the problem… what’s holding humanity back from achieving perfection… from connecting with our divine nature. And he’s the leader who is going to save us and deliver us to the promised land—the fake “I Am.”

After all, this is a role he has nurtured and embraced, with the help of the media:

Newsweek (2018) Touts Obama as the Second Coming of the Messiah

While Evan Thomas did make a negligible reference within his Newsweek article that he was making a comparison to Abraham Lincoln, a picture is worth a thousand words and Thomas has declared Obama as being a God-like figure before:

“In a way, Obama’s standing above the country — above the world. He’s sort of God. He’s going to bring all different sides together.” (2009 interview on MSNBC)

Obama’s commencement comment was made in the context of inequality and social injustice—one of the two pillars of Marxism and process philosophy (aka Satan’s counterfeit system).

He added, “If the world’s going to get better, it’s going to be up to you… And if you’re inactive, that will also speak volumes.”

In other words, a one world (Marxist) government is the solution, so get on board. And, if you’re not on board, then you are the problem… you are an enemy of humanity.

He makes it clear that if you aren’t on board with “hope and change” (the Marxist mantra), then you are an antiquated, regressive obstacle that will be target and removed.

Nothing has changed folks. Obama is biding his time. His role as President wasn’t the end of the story… it was just the beginning. It was the launching pad for the realization of his full ambitions—to transform America… and, ultimately, the world.

He is cleverly positioning himself for a high role in the coming world government—if not as the leader of it. And make no mistake about it, the people will call for him to lead them—they always have and always will chose a Barabbas over Christ (cf. Matthew 27:15-26; Mark 15:6-15; Luke 23:13-25; John 18:39-40). And when they call… he will answer… he’s counting down the days in anticipation.

Not sure? Remember the cult that embraced him before…

The Christian News Network noted that Maggie Mertens wrote an article in a university newspaper entitled “I Will Follow Him: Obama as My Personal Jesus.”

And an editorial in the Danish newspaper Politiken argued that “Obama is, of course, greater than Jesus.”

And then there was the painting by Michael D’Antuono marking Obama’s 100th day as president—you know, the one depicting him in the oval office wearing a crown of thorns and raising his arms as if on the cross.

But sadly, that’s not all. The painting also depicts the same “tearing of the curtain” imagery (which we will discuss further in the next section) and was entitled “The Truth”—once again depicting Satan’s counterfeit program, mirroring Christ being  the “Truth” and the fact that when you accept Truth (Christ) by faith, you are set free (from your bondage to sin and to eternal life).

“Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me'” (John 14:6).

“Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (John 8:32).

At the Democratic National Convention, they were selling posters that read:

“Barak is of Hebrew origin and its meaning is ‘flash of lightning.’ Barak is a valiant fighting man who cooperated with the prophetess Deborah to win victory in a battle against overwhelming odds. Hussein [means] good and handsome. So, you see, Barak was destined to be a good and handsome man that would rise like a flash of lightning to win victory in a battle against overwhelming odds.”

They also sold t-shirts with a picture of Obama that cited Psalm 110:1–“The Lord said unto my Lord, ‘Sit Thou at My right hand until I make Thine enemies Thy Footstool.”

Make no mistake about it, that spirit has not departed… it has only grown stronger given the current environment. People are clamoring for a “savior” even more.

Obama understands how he is viewed by many—as a messianic figure—and he relishes in it, encourages it, believes in it.

The Blasphemous Nature of Obama’s “Tearing the Curtain” Comment

However, it is more than just a one world government… it is about the nature of that state.

Obama is a very bright, well-studied man with the intellectual capacity to understand the deeper meaning behind what he said. He understood, at least at some level, that he was mocking God—and Christ’s death on the Cross.

In doing some research for this article, I came across a blog post by Ann Althouse, a former law professor at the University of Wisconsin Law School and current professor emerita. Her response demonstrates just how spiritually ignorant and biblically illiterate America has become.

She actually writes that when she attempted to Google the phrase to learn more about its origin, she was surprised to discover that she “couldn’t get to an answer because the page filled up with discussion of Matthew 27—the death of Jesus.”

Go figure, who would of thought? I really suggest people study the Bible a little bit more!

Upon discovering this, she asserted that “I’m pretty sure Obama and his speechwriters had no intention of evoking that image.”

So, she’s “pretty” sure that Obama and his top speechwriters had no idea of the image evoked by this phrase??? Despite all the spiritual imagery that surrounds the man—both from others and intentionally leveraged by him and his groomers???

Why would you be sure that image (the most commonly associated one) was not what he—a self-appointed savior of the people and frequent exploiter of spiritual imagery—intended?

You’re telling me he didn’t understand the imagery depicted in his 100-day portrait?

(And she was a law professor???)

You simply can’t make this stuff up.

So, what is that imagery?

The curtain hung in the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem, separating the Holy Place from the Holy of Holies (or Most Holy Place). It was a massive and dense tapestry—one that served as a veil or wall of separation between man and God.

“Make a curtain of blue, purple and scarlet yarn and finely twisted linen, with cherubim woven into it by a skilled worker. Hang it with gold hooks on four posts of acacia wood overlaid with gold and standing on four silver bases. Hang the curtain from the clasps and place the ark of the covenant law behind the curtain. The curtain will separate the Holy Place from the Most Holy Place.” (Exodus 26:31-33)

Jewish texts indicate that this curtain of densely woven fibers and had the thickness of a handbreadth (roughly three and a half inches)—only God was going to tear it from top to bottom in a split second as if tearing a piece of newspaper.

No one was allowed to enter this Most Holy Place except for the High Priest, and even he would only enter once a year on Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement—the holiest day of the year for the Jewish people) to offer the blood of sacrifice and incense—to intercede for the people before God Himself.

In fact, the other priests would even tie a rope around his waist so they could pull his body out if he died while in the Holy of Holies—that’s how deadly serious it was to be the very presence of God Almighty!

When Christ died on the Cross as the perfect and permanent sacrifice for man’s sin, God tore the veil from top to bottom. It was a divine act that symbolized the bridging of that spiritual gap between man and God.

No longer did a believer need a priest to intercede on their behalf—they could now directly approach God, covered by the atoning blood of Christ Jesus.

Obama was not only mocking God, but he was planting yet another seed in the minds of his followers—that it is He himself that is figuratively tearing the curtain that has been separating humanity from the perfection it so desires. He was implying that he is godlike—asserting that he is in a sense the great “I Am” (though he is obviously not—he is a satanic fake).

Please note, he did not say “pulling” back the curtains—which would prompt entirely different imagery (e.g., exposing the little man behind the curtain in The Wizard of Oz).

No, he specifically—and very intentionally—used the word “tearing.” He knew exactly what that was a reference to—the unique act of God at the most pivotal moments in all of human history.

It wasn’t by mistake folks—he knew exactly what he was saying… and meant it.

It is a foreshadowing of what the antichrist (whether it is Obama or someone else) will do at the mid-point of the Tribulation period in the actual Holy of Holies in the rebuilt Third Temple—namely, declare to the world that they are god… they are “I Am.”


This should be concerning for everyone… but also encouraging for believers.

It should be concerning because it demonstrates just how close we are to the Tribulation and the pouring out of God’s wrath on mankind. The spirit of the antichrist is building. The demonic influence over the world is reaching a fevered pitch—just look around at the chaos in our nation and how people are acting today. You have to admit that many act as though they are possessed or under the influence of demons (and I would contend that many are… and many more will be).

The signs are literally everywhere… and they aren’t little signs anymore either—they are BIG ones. We are at the very threshold of the apocalypse.

However, it should also be encouraging for believers because it means the return of our Lord and Savior to rescue (rapture) us from the wrath to come is also close at hand. Very soon, we will meet Christ in the clouds—never to depart from Him again! We have that blessed hope to strengthen and encourage us as the world deteriorates around us.

If you don’t have that blessed hope today, the time is now my friend to acquire it through faith in Christ.

I’m just a simple watchman on the walls (Ezekiel 3:17-19; Ezekiel 33), here to do my best to sound the alarm about signs of the times—for all folks, but especially for my fellow preppers.

I can sound the alarm to warn you, but you have to make your own decision about the risk and how you will choose to respond.

In addition to the external threats we face, as a watchman for Christ, I must also warn you about an internal risk. Unless you repent (turn your heart and mind to God from a spirit of rebellion), acknowledge your sin, and accept forgiveness from Christ alone, by faith alone, and through grace alone, you will die in your sins.

And I really don’t want that to happen to you! I hope to meet you one glorious day in the kingdom!

It’s not complicated or fancy—you just have to talk to Him. If you call Him, He is faithful to listen—He wants nothing more than for you to do so!

God, through the atoning death of Christ on the Cross, has forever torn that veil that separated us from Him. Trust in Christ right now and enjoy the opportunity you now have to walk in fellowship with Him!

I encourage you to get right with God and start stepping up your prepping—we are living in the very last days and great tribulation is coming quickly. You can hear the hoofbeats of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse approaching.

Whatever you do, don’t procrastinate. There is little time left to preparespiritually or physically.
