A Christian radio host who is dedicated to covering the Second Coming of Jesus Christ says that "God guided" the History Channel to create a Satan character that resembled President Barack Obama.

TruNews host Rick Wiles on Wednesday explained that it was not a coincidence that people like radio host Glenn Beck thought that "Satan" in the History Channel's The Bible series looked similar to the president.

"As Mr. Obama prepares to enter Jerusalem this week, days before Passover, another massive swarm of locusts have entered southern Israel," Wiles reported. "Mr. Obama is not only facing a biblical plague of locust in the Middle East he is also being compared to Satan in the popular The Bible series on the History Channel."

But Wiles admitted that he believed the network and producer Mark Burnett when they said that it was "utter nonsense" that any resemblance was deliberate.

"I don’t believe they intentionally portrayed the Lucifer character to look like Mr. Obama," the Christian radio host noted. "I think God guided the hand of the makeup artist and blinded the eyes of everybody on the movie set while it was being recorded, and the spiritual blinders were removed Sunday night when the program was broadcast nationally on the History Channel."

"How many clues do we need from Heaven to understand that the man in the White House is a devil from Hell?"
