IS OBAMA ANTICHRIST?

OBAMA HAS CERTAINLY CAPTIVATED THE world so that many look upon him as the savior of the world, even viewing him as a godlike figure as Newsweek editor Evan Thomas describes:

"In a way Obama is standing above the country, above
the world.  He's sort of GOD.  He's going to bring all
different sides together."

Is Obama the Antichrist?

The answer is...he has to fulfill certain criteria if he is.

Jesus explained to the Jews:  "I come in my fathers name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive." (John 5:43)

When Antichrist comes he will make a seven year agreement with Israel, which he will break half way through, and then he will take over the temple as his own and proclaim himself to be God on earth. (1) When he comes he will come in his own name and claim that he is God. This person does not need to be Jewish. In the case of the Antichrist, he is of the lineage of Abraham, through Ishmael, being a Syrian from the old Grecian empire.

Daniel 8:21-24 and 11 reveals that when Alexander the Great's kingdom was divided into four kingdoms among his four generals, that Antichrist would come out of the Northern Kingdom of the divided Greek Empire.  This kingdom was ruled by General Seleucus who ruled over the areas of Syria, Mesopotamia, and Persia.  The Antichrist will rise out of one of these areas and most likely will come out of Syria when linked to the following Scriptures from Isaiah and Micah:

Isaiah 10:12-13 speaks of a "stout heart of the king of Assyria," referring to the Antichrist.
Micah 5:5-6 identifies the Antichrist as "the Assyrian."

Does Obama fill this criteria? He certainly comes in his own name and has come with an air of divinity surrounding him. He certainly has a "stout" heart. However, It doesn't appear he fulfills the criteria of being of Syrian heritage...but again, his birth does seem to be clouded. Then there is the matter of his being of mixed race...that also seems to disqualify him as "the Syrian." It is interesting that he is the only president, and perhaps the only world leader, who has no clear public record of where he was born or even who his father really was. Is this hiding a Syrian lineage? And then there is the matter of his being of mixed race...that also seems to disqualify him as "the Syrian." It does not appear that Obama is the Antichrist.

IF HE IS NOT ANTICHRIST, WHAT IS HIS SIGNIFICANACE?

For America it appears that Obama is a type of Antichrist; for the rest of the world, he will be used to move the United States further into the global government agenda.  As America's Antichrist, it appears he will continue to...

1.  Come against America's Christian heritage until Christianity is the enemy of society.

2.  Set in motion the policies necessary to collapse our economy so that we will join in a global economy.

3.  Seek government control over all main aspects of life; once government has control, the nation will eventually consist of kings and serfs.

4.  Surrender our sovereignty to the anti-Christian, Antichrist world government system.

5.  Withdraw America's longstanding support of Israel.

6.  Strengthen the Islamic world to pave the way for them to invade Israel.  It appears Obama will be a key player in setting the stage for the Ezekiel 38/39 battle.

Final Thoughts
Truly these are dark days we are living in. The darkness will become so great that the Gospel will be banned and Christians killed; these days will soon be here..it won't be long. It is crucial that we share the good news that Jesus shared in Mark 1:15: "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel."

In our twenty-first century sin and darkness is great and embraces all aspects of our culture. It is imperative that the light that remains shines wherever it is. You are that light and as you shine doing your good works, remember that no one will ever know the one you’re working for if you don’t tell them…how will they hear if there is not someone to tell them? (Romans 10:14)

The Bible is clear that most people—inside and outside the denominations—do not fear God. You do not have to be part of the most people. You can put your trust in Him today and then go and tell everyone you know about the God who created the world, died for their sins, rose from the dead, and gave a marvelous hope to all who will receive it. Time is short. Most people need to hear the message that Jesus taught. Do your part to help them to hear. Go and help return America to God.

Until next time…
Be so much the more, as ye see the day approaching
