(March 2010) Noah W. Hutchings (born 1922) is the president of Southwest Radio Church Ministries, a Christian broadcasting company based in Oklahoma City. He is the host of their nationally syndicated radio show Watchman On The Wall, which is broadcast daily on stations across the USA. Watchman on The Wall's main focus is biblical prophecy and exposition of end times theories as well as conservative Christian apologetics. Hutchings also contributes to the ministry's two monthly publications, Bible in the News magazine and Prophetic Observer newsletter.

After thirteen weeks of training, including physical and 155mm Howitzer, he went overseas. Hutchings had experience in the South Pacific while working as a radar technician. Hutchings completed his service during World War II and returned to Oklahoma. Anti-Catholism Hutchings' anti-Catholic beliefs were made apparent when he wrote an article entitled "The Vatican Connection" for the magazine Gospel Truth in April, 1984. In this article he explained why he thought Pope John Paul II might be the Antichrist spoken of in the Bible: "In Pope John Paul we see a man who is rising in international stature, a man who will be increasing called upon to bring peace to a troubled world. His recovery from a deadly wound directed world attention and admiration to his personage, and he, like those before him, would seemingly like to establish authority over the Holy Hill of Zion." Predictions In 1974, the Southwest Radio Church's David Webber and Noah Hutchings co-authored the book Prophecy in Stone (Harvest Press) in which they suggested that the "rapture" would take place "possibly in 1987 or 1988." In 1978, Southwest Radio Church published a pamphlet entitled God's Timetable for the 1980s in which were listed prophecies for each year of the 1980s, culminating with Christ's return and the establishment of his millennial kingdom on earth in 1989. In a 1979 book, Is This the Last Century? (Thomas Nelson) Webber and Hutchings again explicitly suggested "that the Tribulation will begin in 1981, that Christ will return in 1988" and that the "seven years from 1981 to 1988 will be the Tribulation period." Y2K fears In 1998 Hutchings stirred up fears among his listeners and readers with dire predictions surrounding the Y2K computer problem. His two books on the subject were Y2K=666? (with Larry Spargimino) and Does Y2K Equal 666?, both published by Hearthstone Publishing in Oklahoma City. "We are living in the most perilous times since the flood in Noah's Day. Informed sources worldwide are now becoming alarmed. Some are predicting world famine, economic disasters, world rioting, and chaos with millions dying." Hutchings' book was noted by the San Francisco Chronicle in a story published on October 3, 1998, "2000 Computer Bug Has Apocalyptic Overtones." Chronicle religion writer Don Lattin wrote, "The alarmist response to Y2K in evangelical circles reminds many fundamentalist Christians of Bible prophecies about the Great Tribulation, a future period of violent social chaos, and the rise of the Antichrist -- two events that many fundamentalist Christians believe must precede the second coming of Jesus Christ." "Radio evangelist Noah Hutchings has been preaching that message over the airwaves for 48 years. His Southwest Radio Church out of Oklahoma City is heard on 100 radio stations across the country, including KCBC in Northern California." "That number, 666," Lattin noted, "is a powerful Christian symbol of the 'mark of the beast,' the Antichrist described in the apocalyptic visions in the Book of Revelation. In recent years, some fundamentalist Christians have identified the Antichrist with the megacomputer at the World Bank, seeing an evil plot in the rise of global electronic banking, bar codes on nearly every product and computerized mailing lists for nearly every address." Lattin then quotes from Hutchings: "Whether you like it or not, you have a mark and a number in the government's computer data bank." Another article in the Wall Street Journal quoted Hutchings speculation that "computers, with their ability to know 'all about us . . . whether we've been good or bad,' might be a tool of the Antichrist to bring down civilization." Hutchings had co-authored an earlier book with David Webber entitled Computers and the Beast of Revelation (Huntington House, 1986). Academic credentials challenged Noah Hutchings has been criticized by a fellow evangelical Christian, William Alnor, as claiming doctorate and graduate degrees which he does not legitimately possess. In an August, 2004 article for The Christian Sentinel, Alnor wrote "The 'Dr.' title is bestowed on him repeatedly throughout the ministry's website, and even graces the covers of some of his published books under the by-line 'Dr. Noah Hutchings.'" Alnor reports that he contacted Hutchings, who conceded that his only earned degree is a Batchelor's in accounting. Hutchings has no seminary training, and no formal education in theology or biblical studies. Hutchings is now simply referred to as "Rev." on the Southwest Radio Church Ministries website. His bio there mentions that he is the recipient of two honorary doctorates, one from St. Charles University—a diploma mill in California—and one from American Bible College and Seminary in Oklahoma City (now defunct). Neither of those institutions have been regionally accredited. Hutchings is also accused, by Rick Miesel, of promoting the doctrine of the "Gospel in the Stars", the idea that the astrological signs really refer to the Bible.
