During a radio interview last week, Minnesota Republican Michele Bachmann said the end is near – and it’s all because of President Obama.
In the interview with "End Times" host Jan Markell, Bachmann warned of an impending rapture and pointed the finger of blame on Obama’s policies.
“We need to realize how close this clock is to getting towards the midnight hour,” she said. “We in our lifetimes potentially could see Jesus Christ returning to earth and the rapture of the church. We see the destruction, but this was a destruction that was foretold.”
Specifically, Bachmann cited Obama’s nuclear negotiations with Iran as a reason for the apocalypse.
“We are literally watching, month by month, the speed move up to a level we’ve never seen before with these events,” she said.
“Barack Obama is intent," she added. "It is his number one goal to ensure that Iran has a nuclear weapon.”
She later added that the President’s overall foreign policy was a key factor in what she felt were the end of days.
“If you look at the president’s rhetoric, and if you look at his actions," she said, "everything he has done has been to cut the legs out of Israel and lift up the agenda of radical Islam.”
In addition to Obama’s leadership on foreign issues, Bachmann also warned that marriage equality and abortion were two issues weighing heavily on the timing of the rapture.
“Any nation that accepts God and his principles is blessed, and those who push away are cursed. That’s what we’re seeing happen to the United States. We will suffer the consequences as a result,” she said, adding that God was punishing the United States for “embracing a pagan view.”
