I majored in directing, but very passionate about acting in Nollywood, popular actress, Thelma Nwosu – By AZUH AMATUS

Thelma Nwosu

Dazzling  and delectable Thelma Nwosu is among the few lucky actresses that started their careers in Nollywood from inception and has still not gone underground or crash out along the stormy road to stardom.

 

The mother of one sexpot who announced her presence in Nollywood movies on the set of “Frame Up” in 1994, revealed that her emergence was made possible by star actor, Bob Manuel Udokwu and a female colleague. “For me, it was a dream come true”, she gushes.

 

With over 30 hit movies to her credit, the University of Port Harcourt graduate of Theatre Arts, says her exploits in block-busters like “Rattle Snake, Glamour Girls and Black Powder” are still indelible on her mind. “These movies brought me into limelight…,” she says.

 

Still speaking further, Nwosu, from Abia State who was once married to a Yoruba man she met in Nollywood, during the early stage of her thriving career, told AZUH AMATUS, that she sometimes feel bad and sad about the over five years marriage, which packed up last year.

 

The self-confessed born again actress, who maintains she can still act deep romantic roles in movies despite her religious inclinations, aside Nollywood and showbiz, also bared her mind on many other burning issues.

 

Enjoy the interaction!

 

      You have been away for so long, where have you been?

 

I’ve been around doing my things quietly. Beautiful things have been happening to me and I wasn’t really away for too long. I went back to school in 1996 after I entered the movie industry in 1994. I finished and came back fully in 2003 and ever since I’ve been around and working. Mind you, my first movie titled “Frame up” was after my diploma in theater arts at Uniport. I got on the set of this movie during my one-year industrial training. It was an Igbo movie.

 

      How did you come in?

 

I did my I.T with a production company, but I think it was Bob Manuel Udokwu that introduced me to the owners of the production. After scaling through their audition, I was given the role of Obiageli in the movie.

 

 Since your inception in 94, till date, how has Nollywood impacted on your life?

 

The industry has impacted so much on me positively, but I would not say that it has really challenged me. The period of renaissance in the industry was when I would say things didn’t really work very well. It was the period of multiple debts from producers and executive producers coupled with the fact that the jobs were not forthcoming then. It was during this period that I decided to go back to the university and get a degree. Things were not happening then. But while I was away, it looked as if the industry has picked up again with a lot of people making so much money. As an undergraduate, I refused to shuttle between work and school, because I didn’t want anything to disturb my academics. I also told myself during this period that I was going to come out with a good grade and I did. After my youth service at LTV 8, here in Lagos I decided to face acting full time.

 

 Since your second coming, like how many movies have you featured in?

 

I have done quite a number of movies; since I came back I’ve done well over 20 movies.

 

Since you majored in film directing, how many movies have you directed?

 

(Laughs) Aside my project that I directed before leaving school, I have not directed any other movie. Agreed, I majored in film directing, but I don’t think I have the patience to veer into directing full time in Nollywood. It takes lots of patience and maturity to be a film director. Movie directing entails a lot, especially when you are directing a commercial movie. Besides, I’m very passionate about acting, so I want to remain in acting now then probably, when I’m 50, I will go into directing.

 

How old are you now?

 

I’m in my early 30’s.

 

 Then that you newly came into Nollywood, were your parents in support of your choice of career?

 

Well, as at the time I came into Nollywood, they had already known what I wanted to do. From age 13, I already knew I wanted to act and sing. I’m a good singer and love very much anything that is related with showbiz, I went to the University purposely to do theatre arts; I did not just stumble into it. I’m not like those that would say, I’m studying what JAMB gave me. I chose my course even before the admission came.

 

But what inspired your love for showbiz?

 

As a child, I love singing a lot, I remember writing some childish songs while in primary and secondary schools. My love for showbiz is in born. And I have always told myself; I won’t dabble into other areas except showbiz. And my parents knowing very well my kind of person, did not object, they know I’m strong willed. Once I’m convinced about a project and also know that God is leading me, I don’t allow anything to stop me. I always go for my dreams and make sure I get them achieved. I remember promising my parents I was going to make a huge success out of my career. I did lots of stage plays with Prof. Ola Rotimi, at the early stage, all these got to my parents and they felt I was doing the right thing. Even their reservations at the early stage, was very weak. Besides, my parents are liberal and educated. Mum was once a principal and dad, a foremost educationist. They only told me to make a success out of my career and should also not get into troubles.

 

 As a rising and ravishing actress then, did you encounter any form of sexual harassments from some producers and directors?

 

Agreed it was rampant then and I remember a certain producer coming to me with such crazy demand, this was in 95, ever since, I have never encountered it again. I gave him back his “conditional” script and took a walk and that got me really shocked. The harassment thing in Nollywood is about disposition and how you carry yourself. If you carry yourself properly and know that you are very good, nobody dare challenges or harasses you for sex… If you have your onions, there is a limit to what people can tell you, that is my stand. Again, if you know what you are doing and also not in a hurry to get to the top in Nollywood, nobody, be it director or producer, will take you for granted. It is only God that can get you to the top.

 

Does it weigh you down that despite your many years in Nollywood, you have not been able to join the A-list?

 

No! It does not weigh me down. I’m very happy for those who are there at the moment. I always say it to myself that God’s time is the best. My bible also made me to understand that it is not good to be faster than God when you are doing things. Remember all things work together for good to them that love God… God knows better than me, so I’ m waiting on Him. He does not want me to come and shine briefly for three years and go back to the back seats again. Mind you, for over a decade, I’ve been constant and consistent in Nollywood movies. I’m also happy that we started what is today known as Nollywood. If you are God’s child, He would want you to reign for eternity like Him. I don’t want to come and reign and go. I want to reign and remain. So, I’m counting my steps.

 

Currently, what are you doing?

 

I just came back from Enugu some couple of days ago. I was there for some movie projects. I’ve also featured in close to ten movies since this year. The Enugu experience was very wonderful and I really enjoyed my working experience on location. I always feel at home whenever I go to Enugu to shoot movies. It was a family movie that would soon be out.

 

As someone who has been around for a very long time, what would you say is the biggest problem facing Nollywood today?

 

Well, for me our biggest problem is marketing and distribution of our movies. Also, up and coming artistes should be given the opportunity to grow alongside the big names. They should be allowed to grow and not be restricted to the minor (wakapass), roles often reserved for them as if it their birthrights. We also need to explore the international markets and make more money for ourselves. Still on the issue of minor role actresses, it is funny to juxtapose someone who earns N400, 000 and the one that earns N1, 000 on the same set, the margin is very wide. For me, it is not proper I also want to commend Mr. Ejike Asiegbu, he is doing wonderfully well for the AGN. These for me are the basic problems facing Nollywood.

 

Financially, have you been reaping bountifully from Nollywood?

 

Well, I’ve been growing in Nollywood and God has also been helping me. I’m not complaining, I don’t complain or look hungry. Truth is that I’m doing very well for myself and getting better by the day.

 

Tell us what most people do not know about you

 

Okay, I’m Thelma Nwosu, the third child of her parents, from a polygamous family of six. I have two brothers and three sisters. I’m from Ovim in Isikwuato in Abia State. I was born and bred in Umuahia, Abia State. Like I told you earlier, my parents were both educationist.

 

What fond memories do you still remember about your childhood days?

 

Ehm! Alot. I enjoyed my days in primary and secondary schools a lot. I used to be naughty and stubborn, I went to a seminary school. As a chapel prefect, I was always avoiding the chapel. I also remember vividly the day our principal nearly caught us hiding in the school’s toilet because we didn’t want to go to the chapel. It was fun doing all these then. I sang a lot in my secondary school days too.

 

      Any plans of going into music full time just like most of your colleagues are currently doing?

 

Well, singing is now in vogue among most of my colleagues, but I haven’t really made up my mind to do that but I know I’m very passionate about singing. It is possible but I have not decided yet. Not now.

 

      What is your love life like?

 

What do you want to know about my love life?

 

Are you married or still single and searching?

 

I’m single right now but was once married.

 

      What brought you back to the singles club?

 

I stopped being married because I didn’t want to continue being married (General Laughter).

 

      So, you are single and searching right now?

 

I’m single, focused and can’t say if I’m searching. I will remarry in the future but it is not on my agenda right now?

 

How soon will that be?

 

Hah! I don’t know, I’m not God, so I can’t tell. One thing that is certain is that I’m not in a haste to remarry; I’ m taking my time.

 

But you still have not told us why your marriage collapsed?

 

So, so sorry, I don’t think I would like to share that with you on the pages of newspapers. It is very personal.

 

For how many years were you married?

 

Still a very personal question. There is a four year-old boy to show for the union. Let’s leave my martial and personal life alone in this interview.

 

As a single, pretty and popular actress, how have you been coping with overtures from Nigerian men?

 

Thanks for the encomium. But it is a natural thing for men to disturb women; they come my way every now and then. I also don’t believe you have to be snobbish when men come your way; there is a way to go about the whole thing. Even being rude is not called for. It is a good thing for the opposite sex to appreciate you. Some come around basically because they want to be your friend without having to sleep with you.

 

So, in essence you are saying that you don’t have an intimate male friend right now?

 

Yes! I don’t have. I only have platonic male pals.

 

And by the time you are finally set to fall in love again and probably remarry, what kind of man would appeal to you?

 

Oh dear God, he has to be a born again Christian. I don’t believe in this stuff of being God fearing.

 

      So, your first husband was not born again?

 

As at the time we were married he was not born again, but right now, he is. The new man in my life when the time comes must be born again and filled with the Holy Spirit. He must also be very truthful and extremely transparent.

 

The fact that your marriage collapsed, does it weigh you down or sometimes makes you feel bad and bad?

 

Yeah! Sometimes, not always, it happens because of the kind of society we find ourselves in. It makes one feel bad sometimes. But you have to move on in life. In fact, I was married in 97 and we broke up last year.

 

Do you still believe strongly in the marriage institution?

 

Of course yes! God ordained it and God does not make mistakes.

 

      Do you also believe in love?

 

Of course yes! But most people don’t know the meaning of love. I believe in it because I know what it means, but to some people, sex is love, which is a very wrong notion. Remember the bible says that love does not count any wrong. Love pardons and forgives all. Love is also truthful. Most people here in Nigeria don’t know what it means to love. You love somebody and you cheat on the person, don’t respect the person, and don’t value the person and all those dirty stuffs. You love somebody and yet the person does not mean the world to you. I don’t understand such love and would not want to be a part of that kind of love.

 

      In your next world, do you still want to come back as an actress?

 

Ten times over and over again. I’m so, so passionate about my job.

 

What stands you out and makes you unique among your colleagues?

 

I’m not in a position to judge, but I know that being a child of God makes me different and having the Holy Ghost inside of me also separates me form the rest.

 

So, as a child of God can you act deep romantic roles in movies?

 

Yes I can act them very well. It is my job. I can kiss and smooch in movies it is my job and there are no emotional attachments, I‘m just being professional.

 

Can you marry an actor?

 

Yes, if he is a born again Christian and has the Holy Spirit inside him. Yes again, if he has been able to build a wall between his career and his person and very truthful and transparent.

 

In life today, what would you say is your most prized possession?

 

My God and the miracle of being born again. I feel happy loving God and also knowing that he loves me too. I also love my son with all my life; he means the world to me.

 

      How would you describe yourself?

 

A:  I’m a very simple lady who tries to be as transparent as possible. I love being good to people and can’t stand cheats and dishonest people. I’m also very romantic and can cry a bucket full for love.

  1. I have noticed that clever real estate agents everywhere you go are warming up to FSBO Advertising. They are seeing that it’s not just placing a sign in the front yard. It’s really with regards to building connections with these suppliers who at some point will become purchasers. So, after you give your time and efforts to helping these retailers go it alone : the “Law associated with Reciprocity” kicks in. Interesting blog post.

  2. I want to share a message that has been spreading all over the internet that concerns the times we are living in. Whether you believe in God or not, this is a must read message!

    We can see throughout time how we have been slowly conditioned to come to this point where we are on the verge of a cashless society. Would it surprise you to know that the Bible foretold of this event? Don’t believe me? This may be the most imporant message you will read in these times…please do not ignore this!

    This messsage reveals what the Mark of the Beast is, and the meaning behind counting a number people have been pondering for centuries, 666. This message also shares why Barack Obama is the Antichrist. This is truly a message from God!

    In the Revelation of Jesus Christ given to the apostle John, we read:

    “He (the false prophet who deceives many by his miracles) causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666” (Revelation 13:16-18 NKJV).

    Referring to the last generation, this could only be speaking of a cashless society. Why? Revelation 13:17 tells us that we cannot buy or sell unless we receive the mark of the beast. If physical money was still in use, we could buy or sell with one another without receiving the mark. This would contradict scripture that says we must have the mark to buy or sell. So, it deduces itself to this conclusion.

    These verses could not be referring to something spiritual as scripture references two physical locations (our right-hand or forehead) stating the mark will be on one “OR” the other. It once again deduces itself to this conclusion.

    Also, how could you determine who truly has a spiritual mark so that they may buy or sell? And, as you will read further in this article, to have the mark of the beast is the same to have the name of the beast, or the number of its name. You will begin to see even more clearly why this mark cannot be something purely spiritual.

    Here is where it really starts to come together. It is shocking how accurate the Bible is concerning the RFID microchip. These are notes from a man named Carl Sanders who worked with a team of engineers to help develop this microchip in the late 1960’s.

    “Carl Sanders sat in seventeen New World Order meetings with heads-of-state officials such as Henry Kissinger and Bob Gates of the C.I.A. to discuss plans on how to bring about a one-world system. The government commissioned Carl Sanders to design a microchip for identifying and controlling the peoples of the world—a microchip that could be inserted under the skin with a hypodermic needle (a quick, convenient method that would be gradually accepted by society).

    Carl Sanders, with a team of engineers behind him, with U.S. grant monies supplied by tax dollars, took on this project and designed a microchip that is powered by a lithium battery, rechargeable through the temperature changes in our skin. Without the knowledge of the Bible (Brother Sanders was not a Christian at the time), these engineers spent one-and-a-half-million dollars doing research on the best and most convenient place to have the microchip inserted.

    Guess what? These researchers found that the forehead and the back of the hand (the two places Revelation says the mark will go) are not just the most convenient places, but are also the only viable places for rapid, consistent temperature changes in the skin to recharge the lithium battery. The microchip is approximately seven millimeters in length, .75 millimeters in diameter, about the size of a grain of rice. It is capable of storing pages upon pages of information about you. All your general history, work history, crime record, health history, and financial data can be stored on this chip.

    Brother Sanders believes that this microchip, which he regretfully helped design, is the “mark” spoken about in Revelation 13:16-18. The original Greek word for “mark” is “charagma,” which means a “scratch or etching.” It is also interesting to note that the number 666 is actually a word in the original Greek. The word is “chi xi stigma,” with the last part, “stigma,” also meaning “to stick or prick.” Carl believes this refers to a hypodermic needle (see photo).

    Mr. Sanders asked a Boston Medical Center doctor what would happen if the lithium contained within the RFID microchip leaked into the body. The doctor responded that if the microchip broke inside a human body, the lithium would cause a severe and painful wound filled with pus. This is what the book of Revelation says:

    “And the first (angel) went, and poured out his vial on the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore on the men which had the mark of the beast, and on them which worshipped his image” (Revelation 16:2).

    THE HIDDEN MEANING BEHIND THE NUMBER 666 REVEALED!

    What I first want to mention, before I share what the Holy Spirit has revealed to me concerning the number of the beast, is that God confirms in threes. We can see this throughout scripture:

    “For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one” (1 John 5:7 NKJV).

    “and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:4 NKJV).

    “…Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!” (Revelation 4:8 NKJV).

    There are many more examples, but I thought I would just share three of them to make the point.

    Examining Revelation 13:16,17,18, the first group of three I would like to point out is that the mark of the beast is described in three separate verses, 16, 17 and 18.

    The next three I see is in verse 16, “He causes all…” is followed by three contrasting categories of people,

    1 – “both small and great,
    2 – rich and poor,
    3 – free and slave…”.

    Then unto verse 17, it opens with, “and that no one may buy or sell except one who has…”, followed by three explanations of what one must have to buy or sell,

    1 – “…the mark
    2 – or the name of the beast,
    3 – or the number of his name”.

    Now unto verse 18, we read “Let him who has understanding calculate…”, which is followed by,

    1 – “the number of the beast,
    2 – for it is the number of a man:
    3 – His number is 666”.

    The last three I see is the number “6” being used three times in a row. The reason I’m making this point about God confirming in three is because it is the key to unlocking how to calculate the number 666.

    Throughout the centuries there have been people trying to calculate numbers based on titles and names that come up to the number 666 to identify one person, the Antichrist; but from Revelation 13:18, I do not see where God is telling us to count up to 666, but rather to count the number of the beast. This number is identified as 666. So the verse is telling us to count the number 666.

    What does it mean to count? It means to add up. So how could we add up 666? Remember my previous point about God confirming in threes is key to unlocking the number 666. So logically, what would be the best way to count the number 666? To count it equally by using the rule of three based off the number.

    We cannot count it equally as 600+60+6, this would also bring us back to the start.

    We cannot count it as 600+600+600, or 60+60+60 because there are no zeroes in between or at the end of 666.

    The only logical option is 6+6+6=18.

    What is interesting is that the verse that reveals for us to count the number itself is verse 18 (there a total of 18 verses in Revelation Chapter 13), being the third verse out of the three verses that describe the mark of the beast in Revelation 13:16,17,18. What is 18 divided by 3? 6. So 3×6=18, or 6+6+6=18.

    Another interesting point is the only two other combinations (making a total of three possible combinations) for placing a “+” symbol in between 666 are:

    66+6=72 and 6+66=72.

    Add both 72’s together and you get 144.

    Why the number 144 is worth our attention is because the verse following Revelation 13:18 is the first time in the Bible where the 144,000 are being described in detail:

    “Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads…” (Revelation 14:1).

    Now if you add up all three numbers from counting 666 by moving the “+” symbol around, it would be 72+72+18=162. What is compelling about the number 162, is, if you divide 144,000 by 162, you get 888. The name of Jesus in Greek gematria adds up to 888. The New Testament was originally written in the Greek language. Revelation 14:1 not only mentions the 144,000, but also the Lamb who is Jesus.

    Now what is interesting about the number for Jesus, 888, is that if you apply the same formula that was used to count 666, you get 8+8+8=24. Why the number 24? Revelation chapter 4 tells us there are 24 elders seated around the throne of God. This is the same throne where Jesus sits.

    Now if you take:

    8+8+8=24

    8+88=96

    88+8=96

    you get 24+96+96=216.

    Take 144,000 divided by 216 and you get 666.

    Remember that this was the same exact formula we used to count the number 666 that ultimately brought forth the number 888.

    Here is a quick recap to demonstrate how this formula confirms itself as being the true way to count 666:

    1: 6+6+6=18 > 66+6=72 > 6+66=72 > 18+72+72=162

    2: 144,000 divided by 162=888

    3: 8+8+8=24 > 88+8=96 > 8+88=96 > 24+96+96=216

    4: 144,000 divided by 216=666

    1: 6+6+6=18 > 66+6=72…

    As you can see, it is perpetual. And remember that we consistently used a formula that worked in threes being the number that God uses for confirmation.

    So what could this mean? Well we know in this world we are identified by numbers in various forms. From our birth certificate to social security, as well as our drivers license; being identified based on a system of ruler ship. So it is possible that this RFID microchip will contain a new identification that has a total of 18 characters (6+6+6).

    “here the wisdom is, the one having the mind let him calculate the number of the wild beast, number for “of human” it is, and the number of it 666″ (Revelation 13:1, Greek Translation).

    The Greek word “anthrōpos” being used in verse 18 where it says “of human” is the Greek strongs concordance G444. The first two definitions of the word are “a human being, whether male or female”, and, “generically, to include all human individuals”. Could the number of the beast apply to all mankind?

    In the Greek (the New Testament was originally written in the Greek language), and other translations, you will notice the beast is described as an “it”, instead of “him”. The reason I’m making this point is because when a translation says “His number is 666”, this would imply a singular person, the Antichrist. But by saying “the number of it 666”, implies that it is of the beast system as a whole.

    We can know the number of the beast cannot be to identify products (like a new barcode) to buy or sell because scripture says we cannot buy or sell without the number of the beast. What am I getting at? There will be instances where you could buy something someone made themselves and it wouldn’t have a store branded identification on it. But for this number to be in our chips, that is where it must be to conclude ultimately that we cannot buy or sell without having the number of the beast. As previously mentioned in Revelation 13:18, the number of the beast (6+6+6=18) is a “human number”, definition “generically, to include all human individuals”.

    “Why did the Biden campaign choose 30330? 2020 divided by 666 = 3.0330 Who believes this to be a coincidence? October 2020 Isaiah 53:6 Someone said we are being whipsawed in 2020. Truly a great division is taking place between good and evil—both symbolically and literally (riots, unrest, politics). If you take the current year 2020 and divide it by the number 666 (known for its satanic implications) you will get the number 30330 (repeated). This number 30330 happens to be the number used to vote for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Freaky? Supernatural? Odd for sure. Whatever this means, it doesn’t seem good to me. First, why would anyone knowingly choose those particular numbers for their campaign? If they weren’t knowingly chosen, then it appears to be a supernatural act by the evil one himself and I would want to change those numbers ASAP. And if the numbers were chosen knowing their significance, are you satanic? Is this campaign satanic? Either way I do not believe this is a coincidence. And one thing is certain, 2020 is truly being divided by Satan. He is the master deceiver and spreader of chaos. Jesus calls him the father of lies.”

    So I looked up this number 30330 concerning Joe Biden, and I found this information:

    If you send a text to that number (at that time), you would get a response asking to support Joe’s campaign to take down Donald Trump, with one part in caps saying “CHIP IN >>” pointing to a link to go and donate.

    “CHIP IN”? Obama has used this phrase in the past on his twitter and people believe it is a subliminal message to receive the mark of the beast, that is to say the implantable RFID microCHIP that will go IN our body.

    Go to: http://revolutionbible.org to see all the proof!

    Is your name written in the Lamb’s book of life? Jesus says that we must be born again to enter the kingdom of God in the Gospel of John chapter 3.

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    BARACK OBAMA IS THE ANTICHRIST:

    In the Islamic religion they have man called the Mahdi who is known as their messiah of whom they are waiting to take the stage. There are many testimonies from people online who believe this man will be Barack Obama who is to be the biblical Antichrist based off dreams they have received. I myself have had strange dreams about him like no other person. So much so that I decided to share this information.

    He came on stage claiming to be a Christian with no affiliation to the Muslim faith…

    “In our lives, Michelle and I have been strengthened by our Christian faith. But there have been times where my faith has been questioned — by people who don’t know me — or they’ve said that I adhere to a different religion, as if that were somehow a bad thing,” – Barack Obama

    …but was later revealed by his own family members that he indeed is a devout Muslim.

    So what’s in the name? The meaning of someones name can say a lot about a person. God throughout history has given names to people that have a specific meaning tied to their lives. How about the name Barack Obama? Let us take a look at what may be hiding beneath the surface…

    “And He (Jesus) said to them (His disciples), ‘I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven'” (Luke 10:18).

    In the Hebrew language we can uncover the meaning behind the name Barack Obama.

    Barack, also transliterated as Baraq, in Hebrew is: lightning

    baraq – Biblical definition:

    From Strongs H1299; lightning; by analogy a gleam; concretely a flashing sword: – bright, glitter (-ing, sword), lightning. (Strongs Hebrew word H1300 baraq baw-rawk’)

    Barak ‘O’bamah, The use of bamah is used to refer to the “heights” of Heaven.

    bamah – Biblical definition:

    From an unused root (meaning to be high); an elevation: – height, high place, wave. (Strongs Hebrew word H1116 bamah baw-maw’)

    The day following the election of Barack Obama (11/04/08), the winning pick 3 lotto numbers in Illinois (Obama’s home state) for 11/5/08 were 666.

    Obama was a U.S. senator for Illinois, and his zip code was 60606.

    The names of both of Obama’s daughters are Malia and Natasha. If we were to write those names backwards we would get “ailam ahsatan”. Now if we remove the letters that spell “Alah” (Allah being the God of Islam), we get “I am Satan”. Coincidence? I don’t think so.

    These are just a few of many evidences why Barack Obama is the Antichrist. You can see many more in my article on the website above, as well as read about the dreams I’ve had concerning this man. I’m more than convinced that God has shown me that he is without a doubt the Antichrist, and we will see him rise to power in the not so dinstant future.

    Jesus stands alone among the other religions who say to rightly weigh the scales of good and evil, and to make sure you have done more good than bad in this life. Is this how we conduct ourselves justly in a court of law? Bearing the image of God, is this how we project this image into our reality?

    Our good works cannot save us. If we step before a judge, being guilty of a crime, the judge will not judge us by the good that we have done, but rather the crimes we have committed. If we as fallen humanity, created in God’s image, pose this type of justice, how much more a perfect, righteous, and Holy God?

    God has brought down His moral law’s through the 10 commandments given to Moses at Mt. Sinai. These laws were not given so we may be justified, rather that we may see the need for a savior. They are the mirror of God’s character of what He has put in each and every one of us, with our conscious bearing witness that we know that it is wrong to steal, lie, dishonor our parents, and so forth.

    We can try and follow the moral laws of the 10 commandments, but we will never catch up to them to be justified before a Holy God. That same word of the law given to Moses became flesh over 2000 years ago in the body of Jesus Christ. He came to be our justification by fulfilling the law, living a sinless perfect life that only God could fulfill; even bringing the law to it’s truest light by stating, “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart” (Matthew 5:27-28).

    The gap between us and the law can never be reconciled by our own merit, but the arm of Jesus is stretched out by the grace and mercy of God. And if we are to grab on, through faith in Him, He will pull us up being the one to justify us. As in the court of law, if someone steps in and pays our fine, even though we are guilty, the judge can do what is legal and just and let us go free. That is what Jesus did almost 2000 years ago on the cross. It was a legal transaction being fulfilled in the spiritual realm by the shedding of His blood.

    Because God is Holy and just, the wrath that we deserve could not go unnoticed. Through the perfect righteousness and justice of God’s character, it must be dealt with, it must be quenched, it must be satisfied.

    For God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked (Ezekiel 18:23). This is why in Isaiah chapter 53, where it speaks of the coming Messiah and His soul being a sacrifice for our sins, why it says it pleased God to crush His only begotten Son.

    This is because the wrath that we deserve was justified by being poured out upon His Son. If that wrath was poured out on us, we would all die and go to hell. God created a way of escape by pouring it out on His Son whose soul could not be left in Hades, but was raised to life on the third day and seated at the right hand of God in power.

    So now when we put on the Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 13:14), God no longer sees the person who deserves His wrath, but rather the glorious image of His perfect Son dwelling in us, justifying us as if we received the wrath we deserve, making a way of escape from the curse of death.

    Now what we must do is repent and put our trust and faith in the savior, confessing and forsaking our sins. This is not just a head knowledge of believing in Jesus, but rather receiving His words, taking them to heart, so that we may truly be transformed into the image of God. Where we no longer live to practice sin, but rather turn from our sins and practice righteousness through faith in Him.

    Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again'” (John 3:5-7).

    Come before the Lord with a contrite spirit, humble yourself, ask Him for His forgiveness, to receive the free gift of His salvation, to receive His Holy Spirit, so that you may be transformed into a new creature, into a child of the living God.

    There is a reason why the words of Jesus have been translated in to over 2000 languages, and nothing comes remotely close (the Quran just over 100), because there is a God in heaven who desires to have a relationship with you, to know Him through His word, as that is how we personally get to know anybody. There is a reason why it is the year 2021, because Jesus came to earth just over 2000 years ago fulfilling major prophecy causing a divide in our timeline.

    Jesus loves you! Seek Him while He may be found! We must repent and turn from practicing sin…for if we are not following Jesus, we are following the devil. There is no neatural ground. We are either living in the lie, or the truth. God bless you!
