In October of 2007, Obama declared at a Apostolic Church in Greenville, South Carolina that he would create a millennial kingdom of God on earth. The church is Redemption World Outreach Center. Some Pentecostals believe that the kingdom will be a real physical kingdom, a theocracy ruled by men, and this appears to be such a sect. The doctrine that the millennial kingdom will be a man-made physical kingdom on earth created by political or military means is called Dominion Theology.
The doctrine of Obama’s own former church, based on Black Liberation Theology, has a similar concept that the millennial kingdom will be a physical kingdom, created by men with the advent of a black messiah, who will be a real, flesh-and-bones man. Black Liberation Theology holds that destruction of America, white society and the traditional Christian church will bring on the millennial kingdom. Below is a clip of Obama prophesying his creation of a millennial kingdom, only a few months before his nomination for the presidency.

Black Liberation Theology of Obama’s pseudo-Christian church was inspired by black nationalist doctrine, as even its name indicates, designed to be the state religion of the black “nation.” Obama is a kind of black nationalist, who comes from an ethnic Muslim background and has many indirect contacts to radical groups in the Middle East via Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farrakhan, his family and others. Black Nationalists have an accretionary belief system that blends religious beliefs together and some have traditionally seen Islam as the natural, original religion of blacks, even when they do not themselves explicitly practice an orthodox Islam.
The Black Liberation Theology of Obama’s church is, in fact, largely derived from the hateful theology of Farrakhan’s black nationalist sect, the Nation of Islam, and grafted onto a pseudo-Christian facade that has little to do with traditional Christianity. In fact, the doctrine condemns traditional Christianity as being an apostate white religion, designed with its promise of a reward in paradise in the afterlife to keep blacks oppressed in this world. Black nationalist religions promise a reward in a physical millennial Utopia brought on by the destruction of the white “oppressors” and his tools of oppression, American democracy and the so-called white church.
Redemption World Outreach Center
The “minister” of Redemption World Outreach Center is Ron Carpenter. Carpenter motivates his followers by promising them wealth that the “enemy” is taken from them or is preventing them from receiving. This is a term that Obama has himself used to describe his political opponents, who oppose his messianic wealth-redistribution schemes. It is generally used by black nationalists to indicate the “white devil.” Carpenter appears to be using it in a slightly broader sense, though, to mean the existing system or those with financial means. This is the kind of church that Obama favors, one with a social theology based on exploitation of the jealousy of the have-nots and polarization of society into hostile, opposing camps in order to maximize your own power. Below is a clip of one of Carpenter’s “services,” in which he whips the crowd into a frenzied mass hysteria reminiscent of medieval times, urging them to “get mad at the enemy.”
Redemption World Outreach Center has a annual conference called “Kingdom Momentum.” A featured speaker at the Kingdom momentum conference has been Myles Monroe. This is a clip of him being interviewed by Benny Hinn of World Healing Center Church. He explains a little in the clip what the vision of the Kingdom is. That it is a real kingdom and the opposite of democracy. He also explains that the “king” is king by birth and cannot be voted out or removed.
Benny Hinn, the interviewer, is a Pentecostal television evangelist and a faith healer.
