The Number of His Name- Barack Hussein Obama Deciphered & Revealed?


This will be, in large part, another “Gematria” article.  I do realize that for many this is not the favorite subject matter, but I must be obedient to the Lord, and furthermore I am convinced that He has much to show us about what is coming through numbers which, after all, He created. Having established this, I’ll let you in on the purpose of this article. As far as I know, no-one has yet revealed a compelling, straight-forward connection between the English Gematria of President Obama’s full name* and the Bible Gematria (Hebrew or Greek) of either any person in the Bible or the notorious number 666. Within this article, working through inspiration of the Holy Spirit I will establish a strong Biblical “type” connection based on a study of Obama’s English Gematria, and I believe that the results are thought-provoking, to say the least!

English Gematria is a powerful tool which we can use in modern days to gain insight into people of possible prophetic importance; it is based on the number of man, “6”, and as the most important language in the world today six-based English could be considered “man’s language”. Hebrew Gematria is, of course, based on God’s language, Hebrew. To identify the antichrist’s number of “666”, for example, if this is a Gematria designation then we would likely, though not necessarily, discover him by English Gematria.

I believe that the way in which we will decipher the hidden identity and ultimate Biblical purpose or function of President Obama is to consider his English Gematria and, armed with this unique number, look for a Biblical connection with Hebrew Gematria. Clearly it is not a coincidence that this strange man with an obscure background currently holds the most important office in the world.


As my readers know, I have on more than one occasion suggested that President Obama might well be an end times prophetic “type” of the final king of ancient Babylon, Belshazzar. This is covered quite thoroughly in the following article-

For the purpose of a quick review, Belshazzar is most famous for his actions on the final day of his life, generally considered to be late on the night of the 12th to 13th of October, 539 BC. What were these actions? During a great feast honoring a Babylonian goddess he partied with 1000 of his friends, nobles, wives, and concubines and drank wine from the sacred gold and silver vessels which had been taken from the Temple in Jerusalem. This is the night of the famous “writing on the wall” which the Prophet Daniel was able to interpret.  King Belshazzar was killed and his nation was overtaken by the Medes and Persians (see Daniel 5).


If President Obama is indeed America’s “Belshazzar” then he will be the final President; the last king of modern Babylon. I believe that the evidence is sufficient now to suggest that he likely is. The implications of this, of course, are sobering to the Christian and should be horrifying to the unsaved. Time is very short for each and every American citizen and I am hereby sounding the trumpet. If you are not convinced of the connections given within the linked article or so far within this one, please read on, as there is much more to come.


In recent weeks (since the election), and even after Mr. Obama was initially elected as President of the United States of America, many pundits have suggested that he may be a type of “Pharaoh” of America. The word “Pharaoh”, Biblically, simply refers to a king, specifically a king of Egypt, yet the root meaning is merely “king”. I find it quite fascinating that many excellent articles have been written about Obama as a “type” of Pharaoh. Some suggest that Obama is actually a “clone”. I do not believe this, rather I believe that he is a physical descendant in the line of Egyptian Pharaohs, and he is clearly a spiritual offspring. The following quotes, however, are quite instructive for the purposes of this article.

First, here is a intriguing quote courtesy of-

What is the significance of the mysterious pyramids, obelisks, and other Egyptian architecture and monuments rising across America? Will Barack Obama become America’s first “Pharaoh?” Could the intuitively intelligent Senator from Illinois be destined to become the second coming of Osiris, the Egyptian Sun God? It was Osiris, the ancients believed, whose spirit was reincarnated in the person of the Pharaoh. Honored as the Lord of the Underworld, the divine Osiris is the very same deity depicted on America’s one-dollar bill—as the All-Seeing-Eye in the capstone hovering over the Novus Ordo Seclorum pyramid.

Obama is “The One”

Commentators have noted the stunning messianic tone to Barack Obama’s presidential campaign. His followers reverently speak of Obama as ‘The One;’ they print impressive eye-catching posters of their candidate’s handsome face, glowing, surrounded by radiant sun rays. They boast of Obama’s extraordinary oratory skills and point to his uncanny ability to inspire the masses.

In all these things and more, the countenance and leadership qualities of Barack Obama seem to be amazingly reminiscent of those attributed to Egypt’s ages-old Sun god. Egypt, of course, is situated geographically in north Africa. Obama’s roots, meanwhile, can be traced to three continents. His birth to a white mother was in America; he was raised as a boy in Indonesia, in Asia; but his biological father, a black man, came from Kenya, in Africa.

And, from-

Obama went to Egypt for spiritual reasons and came away with a spiritual title. It was all a part of the heart-hardening process. In Exodus 10:27 we read as follows: “But the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart, and he would not let them go.” Pharaoh is the one who would not grant freedom to the people of the Lord but enslaved them in the world’s first society of socialism long ago. Those same demons of ancient times are still here with new human hosts in high places!

. . . thus, Obama was declared the new King Tut and Pharaoh of the world. When has such a thing ever happened to a head of state? Our President is now a Pharaoh, the son of the sun-god Ra. 

If Obama is a type of Pharaoh, the first word that should come to the minds of American citizens who are true Christians or Jews is “captivity“. This possibility should be considered carefully, for if it is accurate then life is soon going to change in America, quite dramatically and for the worse.

Gematria Evidence:

Now, why would I suggest that Obama might be Biblically a type of both Pharaoh and Belshazzar? Certainly, if Obama is the final President of the U.S.A., modern Babylon, then he compares as a prophetic type of Belshazzar of ancient Babylon. Furthermore, if his policies include bringing God’s people (and by this I mean the True Church and the Jews) into captivity, he is a type of Pharaoh as well. From a merely spiritual standpoint it could certainly be argued that he embraces the gods and goddesses which were worshipped by the people of ancient Egypt in the time of the Pharaohs, and his ancestry from northern Africa likewise has weighty prophetic implications.

It was under Pharaoh that God’s chosen people were in captivity before leaving for the Promised Land. Who are God’s chosen people now? The true Christians who follow the Lamb, as well as the Jews. And where is our Promised Land? We will set our faces to Zion, and seek the New Jerusalem. I find it prophetically feasible and even necessary that a Pharaoh type would lead Babylon America just before the nation’s demise. We can also expect to see a Prophet in the order of Moses stand up in America to led the true Christians to Zion. What I expect to happen in America, beginning in earnest as early as 2013, is persecution of the True Church which will instigate a shift into captivity. This is why the Lord calls to us through His Word, in several places within both the Old and New Testaments regarding Babylon “come out of her, my people“. The True Church is actually defined by those who have come out of America Babylon spiritually, and as He instructs we eventually must leave physically as well. America, as Babylon the Great, will be made desolate.  If we leave physically, when called, perhaps we can avoid the captivity and the destruction.  I am expecting that the captivity will be at first an attempt at spiritual enslavement (this has already begun), to be followed by eventual physical captivity.  Of course, if we truly and fully belong to Jesus Christ then we can never be spiritually held captive!

So far the connection between President Obama, Belshazzar, and Pharaoh has been admittedly speculative, although I find the links compelling. But here’s the clincher. There is a numerical (Gematria) relationship between President Obama, Belshazzar, and Pharaoh as well. Speaking of English Gematria, here are the results for “Barack Hussein Obama”, courtesy of-

barack hussein obama in English Gematria Equals: 978

B  A  R    A  C  K     H    U    S     S    E    I   N     O   B  A M  A

12 6 108 6 18 66    48   126 114 114 30 54 84    90 12 6 78 6

[This includes 216 for “Barack”, 570 for “Hussein”, and 192 for “Obama”. Incidentally, 216 = 6x6x6. In addition, President Obama was born on day 216 of 1961; that is, 4 August]

The name “Belshazzar” is found 8 times in the King James Version of the Holy Bible, and the word “Pharaoh” precisely 200 times. Of course, “Pharaoh” refers to several different individuals as it simply means “king”, yet in this context it principally evinces the particular Pharaoh with whom Moses dealt prior to the Exodus.

Here is the Strong’s H1113 definition of “Belshazzar”, including Gematria-


בלשאצר Belsha’tstsar (Aramaic) {bale-shats-tsar’} corresponding to 01112;; n pr m AV – Belshazzar 7; 7 Belshazzar = “Bel (Baal) protect the king” 1) king of Babylon at the time of its fall; he to whom Daniel interpreted the writing on the wall


Gematria: 623

The Gematria of “Belshazzar” is 623.

Now, here is the Strong’s definition of “Pharaoh”, including Gematria-


פרעה Par`oh {par-o’} of Egyptian derivation; TWOT – 1825; n m AV – Pharaoh 268; 268 Pharaoh = “great house” 1) the common title of the king of Egypt


Gematria: 355

The Gematria of “Pharaoh” is 355.

355 + 623 = 978

Pharaoh (King) + Belshazzar = Barack Hussein Obama

This seems to suggest that President Barack Hussein Obama is, Biblically, an end times prophetic type of “King Belshazzar”.

I find this to be strong corroborating evidence that indeed Obama may be the final President of the United States of America. Obviously, if this is assuredly the true connection then the implications are quite stunning for the people of America and of the world.

Potential Confirmation:

One final connection. I’ll now analyze the number 978, Barack Hussein Obama’s English Gematria, independently. When analyzing the key Biblical meaning of a number, it is instructive to scrutinize the very first example of that number in Scripture, as per protocol of the esteemed Dr. E.W. Bullinger. In the case of the number 978, here is the meaning of the common Hebrew word “laqach”; Strong’s H3947-

לקח laqach {law-kakh’} a primitive root; TWOT – 1124; v AV – take 747, receive 61, take away 51, fetch 31, bring 25, get 6, take out 6, carry away 5, married 4, buy 3, misc 26; 965 1) to take, get, fetch, lay hold of, seize, receive, acquire, buy, bring, marry, take a wife, snatch, take away 1a) (Qal) 1a1) to take, take in the hand 1a2) to take and carry along 1a3) to take from, take out of, take, carry away, take away 1a4) to take to or for a person, procure, get, take possession of, select, choose, take in marriage, receive, accept 1a5) to take up or upon, put upon 1a6) to fetch 1a7) to take, lead, conduct 1a8) to take, capture, seize 1a9) to take, carry off 1a10) to take (vengeance) 1b) (Niphal) 1b1) to be captured 1b2) to be taken away, be removed 1b3) to be taken, brought unto 1c) (Pual) 1c1) to be taken from or out of 1c2) to be stolen from 1c3) to be taken captive 1c4) to be taken away, be removed 1d) (Hophal) 1d1) to be taken unto, be brought unto 1d2) to be taken out of 1d3) to be taken away 1e) (Hithpael) 1e1) to take hold of oneself 1e2) to flash about (of lightning)**

Gematria: 138

Gematria: 978 in original text מתלקחת, the very first verse in the Bible with a word having 978 Gematria is Exodus 9:24-

So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, very grievous, such as there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation.

This dramatic verse references the seventh of ten devastating plagues which befell the people of Egypt and their Pharaoh! In addition, it appears to mirror what will become of America, Babylon the Great, when the first trumpet sounds as we read in Revelation 8:7-

The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.

The following verse records the great mountain burning with fire (America) cast into the sea at the second trumpet; Revelation 8:8-

And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;

I cover the first four trumpets in some detail within the following article-

Egypt experienced ten plagues; America’s destruction is referenced by the first four trumpets, the initial of which references the seventh plague and the fourth, therefore, which speaks to the tenth and final plague. Although the particular type of plagues do not “line up” neatly, the mathematical precision certainly does and there is no doubt that there is a relationship between the plagues which befell Egypt and those which will befall America Babylon.

Backing up a bit now, in Exodus 9:24 we see this interesting note about “laqach” in the Bible Wheel summary of this verse. Despite all of the possible meanings of this word shown in Strong’s this is the notation

(untranslated)   H3947    laqach   מתלקחת   978

Stunningly, this word “laqach” with the Gematria of 978 is untranslated in this verse! I would then speculate that perhaps the meaning in the original text was the final one in the Strong’s definition; that is “to flash about: as lightning“. Why? The answer is forthcoming in the second footnote!

Sobering Conclusions:

As far as I’m concerned, this working hypothesis is quite strong and the above represents further confirmation. The hypothesis being, of course, that Barack Hussein Obama is a type of Pharaoh and also a type of Belshazzar. This means that President Obama will be America’s final President, if the hypothesis holds. The 978 Gematria connection confirmed with Exodus 9:24 and its connection to Revelation 8:7 is likewise stunning.

What does this mean for the True Church in America, and for the nation’s Jewish population? It is time, first, to come out of America spiritually and to set our eyes to Zion. This spiritual coming out must happen immediately. It also appears that after a horrendous event or events on American soil which will be perpetrated by the “fanners” (Jeremiah 51:2) it will be time for a Second Exodus, this time from the former “land of the free” now known as Babylon the Great. Stay tuned, the year 2013 will likely be the bona fide start of persecution of the saints in America. My next article will deal with America and the year 2013.

Repent now, for our Messiah’s return is close at hand,



*Much good work has been performed by various authors at Five Doves . . .

. . . but for the most part these potential connections are quite elaborate and not simplistic enough nor definitive . . .

. . . as this was about to “go to press” I stumbled upon the following related article by “Kermit” of Five Doves dated today (17 December)-

Here’s an excerpt-


666 + DEVIL = 978


**The final definition is quite shocking, and reminiscent of the description of Satan (eventually to indwell Obama?) in Luke 10:18-

And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

I say this as it brings my attention back to the following verse which describes the final King of Babylon/President of America); Isaiah 14:12-

How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

Now, to further cement the thesis we have this little gem; “Baraq” (root word of “Barack”) means lightning.  Strong’s H1300-

ברק baraq {baw-rawk’} from 01299; TWOT – 287a;
n m AV – lightning 14, glittering 4, bright 1, glitter 1, glittering sword 1; 21
1) lightning 1a) lightnings, lightning flashes 1b) of flashing arrow-head (fig.)

[C.M.N. Note- compare “lightning flashes” to the 978 Gematria of H3947 “to flash about:  as lightning“!!!]

  1. Alison says:

    Hi dear brother,
    thanks for doing all this research. And what incredible numbers you have come up with here. Have to say, I am not surprised. The weight of evidence is getting very heavy. Now, may I share what the Lord said to me after reading your article?

    Tuesday 18th December 2012 (yes tuesday for me here in Aust)

    Remember that he is a Tuesday man. An enacter of works that reveal the man behind his actions. This man is about to repeal the gun laws. Not because it will suit the people. But because it will suit his purposes. He has waited for this opportunity.He knows that the outcry it will cause from those who are armed, will resound across the nation. Captivity, the number of a man, and the works of man.

    I am not making any comment here about what I think of gun laws in America. I am not suggesting any dates, or what could happen. But the Lord wanted to draw my attention to the President, and Tuesdays. And it appears that the Lord is also wanting to draw attention to the words ‘captivity’, the ‘number of a man’ and the ‘ works of man’.

    God bless

    • Thanks, dear sister, for the comment.

      Yes, the evidence is stacking up, alright. There is something very “different” about this man, and even many secular people sense this. Somehow, though, he was re-elected, shame on the blind Americans who voted for him.

      Amazing word from the Lord you have received. Yes, a crackdown on firearms is forthcoming in America and there may be a major “false flag” operation or another incident (such as “fanners”) to give the Feds further “ammunication” (in addition to the 1.4 billion rounds they’ve recently purchased with our tax dollars) against the rights of the citizens granted by our Constitution. Disarming the populace means controlling the people; they know that and so does the NWO.

      I’ll keep a close lookout on Tuesdays from here on out, that’s for sure. Remember also, it was on a Tuesday that the fall of the Presidential Seal happened and the first connection to Belshazzar became evident.

      Thanks again for the comment and word from the Lord, Alison!

      Abundant Blessings,


  2. Great job Carlos! I’m one of those people who have difficulty with the subject of biblical Gematria but, you have made it very easy to follow. Wow! A lot to chew on there and I agree, 2013 is going to be something different; a year unlike any we’ve known before. Love and blessings in Y’shua and thanks again for your faithfulness in writing and study Cindy

    • Hi Cindy;

      Thanks for the compliment. I truly hope that I was able to present the Gematria in a rather straight foward way; I believe there is more to “uncover” about 978 although this “Pharaoh Belshazzar” might be the main Biblical clue.

      Yes, the Holy Spirit has shared much more about 2013 and I’ll be posting that article by the 31st of December, God willing! The article has been difficult to write as I just see so many timelines coming together and it bodes poorly for America, certainly.

      Thanks again, dear sister, and may the Lord bless your work and your walk daily,


  3. JD says:

    Carlos, thank you for another great (sad) article. The uneasiness, the questions, the lingering doubts about this man certainly are pointing to your conclusions.

    • Thanks for your comment, Jane. You are correct, so many have lingering doubts but only those with spiritual eyes open realize the stark reality of the situation which the people of the USA now find themselves in.

      Perhaps the Lord is showing us some other, less tragic, connection besides the one I’ve uncovered here? I don’t believe so, but time will tell. Rather, I’m greatly concerned and, yes, it is so sad.

      There is a part of me that wants to keep these things to myself, but I am obliged to speak. God willing, I’ll be speaking more soon through the 2013 article. Please keep me in your prayers for it is another difficult writeup but must be published.

      Thanks again, dear sister.

      Abundant Blessings,


  4. Johnny says:


    I agree with your discernment when you stated, “I find it prophetically feasible and even necessary that a Pharaoh type would lead Babylon America just before the nation’s demise. We can also expect to see a Prophet in the order of Moses stand up in America to led the true Christians to Zion.”

    This prophet like Moses is spoken of in Jeremiah 50:44 – ” “Behold, he shall come up like a lion from the floodplain of the Jordan Against the dwelling place of the strong; But I will make them suddenly run away from her. And who is a chosen man that I may appoint over her? For who is like Me? Who will arraign Me? And who is that shepherd Who will withstand Me?” ”

    The LORD asks, “And who is a chosen man that I may appoint over her?”. I believe the “chosen man” refers to the prophet to end-time Babylon who is America (“her”).

    The LORD asks, “For who is like Me?”. Where have you heard something similar? Exodus 7:1 – “Then the LORD said to Moses, “See, I have made you like God to Pharaoh, and your brother Aaron will be your prophet.” Will this prophet have someone else with him just as Aaron was with Moses?

    The LORD asks, “Who wil arraign Me?”. Sounds like the prophet is going to be arrested, charged, and taken before the authorities. This is similar to what the apostle Paul experienced!

    The LORD asks, “And who is that shepherd Who will withstand Me?”. Will this prophet say “Let My people go!” before a modern-day Pharaoh and then shepherd His people out of Babylon?

    Time will tell! SOON!

    God Bless! Let us keep the faith and be strong and of good courage!


    • Hi Johnny;

      Thanks, yes it is clear that this “forerunner” prophet will be revealed quite soon. As I mentioned in my last comment, a comparison with Isaiah is mandatory for putting together the big picture about the Elijah- or Moses-type to come.

      It will be interesting indeed to see how the authorities refer to this man- perhaps as a nut? As a self-proclaimed prophet only? As a dangerous religious extremist? Of course, Jeremiah himself faced not only kings but the false prophets of the kings’ court!

      Nice to see you are “visiting” other articles, brother!



      • Johnny says:


        It is safe to assume that the prophet will know what is prophesied in the Word in both OT and NT concerning the judgment on end-time Babylon and its destruction by fire in one hour of one day. While the LORD can use something supernatural, natural, or man-made to bring about the judgment, it is clear in the Word that it will be man-made, and we both know what can destroy a nation by fire in one hour of one day. The video by Dumitru Duduman says it all!

        The prophet may even know when it will happen if it is revealed to him by the LORD. If He does, I believe that Jeremiah 51:46 establishes a timeline of 3 years based on the prophet’s rumor/report. Jeremiah 51:46 – “And lest your heart faint, And you fear for the rumor that will be heard in the land (A rumor will come one year, And after that, in another year A rumor will come, And violence in the land, Ruler against ruler)”. If something is only a rumor, that means it does not happen, at least not immediately. Looking at the verse again, it will be a rumor for the first and second year then something happens in the third year.

        As a prophet, he must prophesy to the people and leaders and king of the nation using whatever communications media he can with the most likely form being the internet. Because our communications are monitored by certain federal agencies, there is a possibility that the prophet will say certain words that will make them think he is a terrorist threat. Of course, you and I know he will not be. As a messenger, he will be merely relaying the justice and judgment of the LORD, but he himself will not execute it.

        Thanks for listening and God Bless!


      • Hi Johnny;

        You are indeed correct that the “rumors” are a key as to the timing. As I’ve mentioned before (somewhere) the rumors MAY be the Obama birth issue (an alleged birth certificate appeared in 2011) and the Mayan end-of-the-world in 2012. Methinks, though, that we should be looking at not only our Gregorian calendar but also the Hebrew. Now, about “violence in the land, ruler against ruler” would anyone be surprised to see this occur in America in 2013? I would not.

        This prophet does have a strong idea of the timing indeed, and it is soon. You mentioned that he may know the day? This is possible, I agree. Indeed, he will be The Messenger but will of course not execute the judgment; rather, he will warn of it and will be ridiculed and hated for speaking the truth- what else is new, eh? Jeremiah wasn’t exactly a popular man either with the government or the people.

        Johnny, you make an excellent point, and very soon bloggers like myself who make connections to Obama and Belshazzar/Pharaoh/Antichrist will be targeted by the government as revolutionaries. Especially those of us to whom God speaks to and reveals coming events. Under this new Marxist/Fascist police state federal government we’re under with the foreign king, we will be considered a threat.

        I am also contemplating the possibility that the first “rumor” may be that America’s destruction will occur in 5774, but God might relent (not due to repentance of the American people, though, which will not happen) and then there would be be another rumor involving 5775 with America’s demise actually occurring in 5776.

        Thanks, Johnny, and may your new year (Gregorian) be blessed!
