The Devil is Evil

“…Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thine heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, I am a God, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; yet thou art a man, and not God, though thou set thine heart as the heart of God” (Ez 28:2).

“Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast set thine heart as the heart of God; Behold, therefore I will bring strangers upon thee, the terrible of the nations: and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of thy wisdom, and they shall defile thy brightness. 

They shall bring thee down to the pit, and thou shalt die the deaths of them that are slain in the midst of the seas.  Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I am God?  But thou shalt be a man, and no God, in the hand of him that slayeth thee.  Thou shalt die the deaths of the uncircumcised by the hand of strangers: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD” (Ez 38:6-10).

“Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. 

Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. 

By the multitude of thy merchandise, they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore, I will cast thee as Profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. 

Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee” (Ez 28:14-17).

“Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffic; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee. 

All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more” (Ez 28:18-19).

“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! 

For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. 

They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms; That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?” (Is 14:12-17).

Why would the producers say that Obama doesn’t look like the actor? He does and you can’t argue with pictures.
The question to ask yourself: is it a coincidence, or is God trying to tell us something?

Daily Mail (UK): Why does the devil in ‘The Bible’ look exactly like President Obama?
Separated at birth: Satan and Obama

The resemblance between Moroccan actor Mehdi Ouazzani (left) and President Obama left some viewers of ‘The Bible’ taking to Twitter to express their amazement

Story here.
We are not troubled by the fact that an actor who plays Satan looks like Obama, but rather, by the fact that Obama resembles Satan. In more ways than one.

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Eph 6:12).

The producers of the US cable TV miniseries on the Bible say internet chatter that their Satan character resembles President Barack Obama is “utter nonsense.”

Mark Burnett and Roma Burnett say the Moroccan actor who played Satan in the History channel series, Mehdi Ouzaani, has played Satanic characters in other Biblical programs long before Obama was elected president.

The connection got widespread attention after talk show host Glenn Beck last week tweeted: “Does Satan look EXACTLY like Obama? Yes!”

History said in a statement that the network has “the highest respect” for Obama, and that “it’s unfortunate that anyone made this false connection.”

“Both Mark and I have nothing but respect and love our president, who is a fellow Christian,” said Downey, the Touched By an Angel actress who is married to Burnett.

“False statements such as these are just designed as a foolish distraction to try and discredit the beauty of the story of the Bible.”
