Barack H. Obama: what’s the H stand for?
Barack H. Obama has gone through two inaugurations as President of the United States. Each time the Chief Justice, intoning the oath of office, called him by his full name: Barack Hussein Obama. And that, presumably, is his name. Or is it? A recent video has surfaced that suggests the H might not really stand for Hussein, but for Herod.
A prayer to Barack H. Obama
That’s right: a prayer to, not for, Barack H. Obama. That’s what the below video shows.
The report comes from Robert Laurie at CainTV. The video appeared two days ago on YouTube, on a single-user channel. This is the only video on that channel. The channel owner says only:
The prayer that he wanted to say for our President is priceless.
Mr. Laurie gives this transcript, which CNAV has edited and supplemented from its own screening:
To President Barack Obama. Thank you for all the stuff that you helped us with. Thank you for taking the courage and all the responsibility for everything you have done for us. And God has gave you special powers and you are going to handle it just fine you are good, Barack Obama. You are great. And when you get older you will be able to do great things, Love, [name withheld]. Barack Obama!
This is wrong on many levels. CNAV could question “all the stuff [he has] helped us with.” Or ask why the American people should wait for a President (de jure or de facto) to help with anything but repelling a foreign invasion.
Instead, look at all the mystical things this boy says about Barack H. Obama. He actually says God has vested Barack H. Obama with special powers. This cannot refer to the powers and duties of the Presidency under the Constitution. Special powers mean superhuman. Notice also that the boy prays directly to Barack H. Obama. Not to God to “grant to thy servant the President of the United States wisdom and strength, et cetera, et cetera.” But directly to Barack H. Obama. As if he were some sort of demigod – half God and half man.
Worship God alone
Satan tested Jesus Christ three times during His forty days and forty nights in the desert. Luke the Physician writes this about one of those trials (Luke 4:5-8, NASB):
And he led Him up and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said to Him, “I will give You all this domain and its glory; for it has been handed over to me, and I give it to whomever I wish. Therefore if You worship before me, it shall all be Yours.” Jesus answered him, “It is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God and serve Him only.’”
Here devil literally means slanderer. So one may take his claim to have the kingdoms of this world as his domain, to dispose of as he likes, with a grain of sand. The important point here is: Jesus refused to worship or serve the devil.
But what about a “good” angel? John the Revelator offered worship to an angel. And the angel refused:
I, John, am the one who heard and saw these things. And when I heard and saw, I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel who showed me these things. But he said to me, “[Stop] that. I am a fellow servant of yours and of your brethren the prophets and of those who heed the words of this book. Worship God.”
(The Greek usually rendered “Do not do that” actually means “Stop doing that.”)
In contrast, the White House has had at least forty-eight hours to decline this offer of worship and has not done so. And by such neglect, Barack H. Obama might have set himself up for a fall.
The sad case of Herod Agrippa I
Herod Agrippa I was the grandson of the great Herod (Hordos) who was Mark Antony’s puppet, and later Caesar Augustus’ puppet, at the time of the birth of Christ. Herod Agrippa sought to re-create the kingdom of Herod the Great, which Rome split four ways. (Rome did this after Herod the Great died of a gastrointestinal ailment, the nature of which no modern gastroenterologist has ever discovered.)
In the early days of the Church, this happened to Herod Agrippa I:
On an appointed day Herod, having put on his royal apparel, took his seat on the rostrum and began delivering an address to them. The people kept crying out, “The voice of a god and not of a man!” And immediately an angel of the Lord struck him because he did not give God the glory, and he was eaten by worms and died.
The “eating by worms” was how his grandfather died. That’s the best description any physician has ever given of his death – for Luke the Physician (Acts 12:21-23) describes his death above.
So! Barack Herod Obama, take heed!ARVE Error: need id and provider

American conservatism as its best: obsession over a fifteen second video of an eight year old child.
Fifty-seven seconds, as you would know had you played it through or even read the time interval display. And had the object of worship been George W. Bush, I do not doubt for one second that you would have gone berserk.
No, Terry, I got upset when I saw *adults* arguing that George W Bush’s Presidency was ordained by God, that the Almighty had interfered during the 2000 election mess to ensure a Bush Presidency, etc.
That’s not the same as saying someone holding office as President is a demigod, a God-substitute, and everything else in the script that boy memorized and recited.
Terry, you are a grown man. It should be blindingly obvious to you that this video is evidence of exactly nothing, except perhaps that kids say dumb stuff.
” the White House has had at least forty-eight hours to decline this offer of worship and has not done so.”
It’s just possible that they think they have better things to do with their time.
[…] is not supposed to have the power to lay or collect taxes. But since when has Barack Hussein (Herod?) Obama cared about what power the Constitution says he has or doesn’t […]
Actually all Presidents are ordained by God. As Herod was ordained so are presidents and leaders of all countries allowed to be in the positions they hold by the grace and sovereignty of God almighty. I have often wondered what God’s plan was in allowing BO to be president. As best I can tell it is not a blessing by any means
Picking on a little kid who loves his country? low blow CNAV
The kid isn’t so much at fault, as his guardians who put him up to that recitation, or failed to correct his monumental misapprehension, and indeed celebrated it.
