Is Barack Obama the Antichrist?

Who is the Antichrist?

God is keeping certain things secret, and almost everything very obscure so Satan cannot foil God’s plan. Things are revealed over time, and they have been getting revealed at lightning speed these past few months.

In the end times, there is going to be at least one prominent figure — a king of the world — literally:  The antichrist (aternatively called the man of sin, or the beast)
A one-world currency will be implemented. Then in order to buy or sell anything, people will have to take a mark in their hand or forehead. You have to swear allegience to (worship) the “beast” to get this mark, and it is a one-way ticket to hell. There will be no forgiveness for anybody who takes the mark. The mark is the number of a man. Most manuscripts think it is the famous 666. But the original text is actually unclear. It may also be 616 or 555. In either case, if you have to get a microchip or something implanted to buy or sell… Better plan on letting God provide for your needs!
It’s a pretty sure bet that the EEU and the Euro is the jumping-off place for this one-world government and currency. The stage is already being set, and Obama is taking us in that direction very rapidly.

Clearly, judging by the way the mainstream media and so many public figures and private individuals are fawning over Barack Hussein Obama, the American mentality is ripe to worship a charismatic leader; but it is still too early for the appearance of any of the major players of Revelation.

The Beasts: Firstly, a beast in prophecy represents some sort of power: a kingdom, alliance of Kingdoms, or government(s). Horns on beasts represent the kingdom’s ruler(s). For instance, Daniel’s vision of the Greek Empire was represented by a goat (Daniel 8:5-8) The prominent horn of the goat represents Alexander the Great.

There are actually three “Beasts” in Revelation.

The First Beast: The beast that rises out of the sea in Revelation 13 has seven heads and ten horns. One of the heads survives a fatal wound, and the dragon gives it power. Prophecy scholars are pretty much unanimous that this beast represents the European Economic Union (EEU). Unless he somehow manages to get empowered in the EEU, Barack Hussein Obama does not fit this description.

The Second Beast: This beast rises out of the dry land. He does great wonders and causes people to worship the first Beast.

The Image of the first Beast: The second beast makes an image of the first beast, then brings the image to life. The image of the first beast commands people to take the 666 mark in order to buy or sell.

The Third beast: A scarlet colored beast also with seven heads and ten horns upon which a woman rode who was drunk with the blood of the saints. The seven heads are seven hills. (Rome is the city of seven hills)

The scarlet beast that was alive and then died is the eighth king. He is like the other seven, and he, too, will go to his doom. His ten horns are ten kings who have not yet risen to power; they will be appointed to their kingdoms for one brief moment to reign with the beast. They will all agree to give their power and authority to him. Together they will wage war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will defeat them because he is Lord over all lords and King over all kings, and his people are the called and chosen and faithful ones.” (Revelation 17: 11-14)

The False Prophet: The false prophet that wrought miracles before the Beast. Not much is said about the false prophet, except that he is thrown alive in the lake of fire, so whatever he does, must be very evil. Unless Obama has something up his sleeve, I doubt he is the false prophet.

The Antichrist: So, bottom line, who is “the” Antichrist? This is probably the Scarlet Beast. He and “Man of lawlessness” from 2 Thessalonians are probably describing the same person:

Don’t be fooled by what they say. For that day will not come until there is a great rebellion against God and the man of lawlessness is revealed–the one who brings destruction. He will exalt himself and defy every god there is and tear down every object of adoration and worship. He will position himself in the temple of God, claiming that he himself is God… And you know what is holding him back, for he can be revealed only when his time comes.
For this lawlessness is already at work secretly, and it will remain secret until the one who is holding it back steps out of the way. Then the man of lawlessness will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will consume with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming.
This evil man will come to do the work of Satan with counterfeit power and signs and miracles. He will use every kind of wicked deception to fool those who are on their way to destruction because they refuse to believe the truth that would save them. So God will send great deception upon them, and they will believe all these lies. Then they will be condemned for not believing the truth and for enjoying the evil they do.
(2 Thessalonians 2:3-12 NLT)

In summary, probably not. Obama does not seem to fit the picture. At worst, it appears he may be be a forerunner — maybe like a “John the Baptist” for the antichrist. But I see no evidence at present that he is the man of lawlessness.

    Could the dragon be China? Their symbol is a dragon for a lot of their culture. And, right now, they’re bankrolling the rest of the world it seems..

    The “666” number, some view, as an 18 digit ID number. Each person that I’ve talked to has their own theory about it, and no one actually has the corner on the real skinny on it.

    The dragon gives power to the beast to perform wonders. It is Satan. I’ve never seen the dragon represent anything else in prophecy.
    The 666 is actually uncertain, because none of the original ancient manuscripts are legible. It could also be 555 (NIV Study Bible by Zondervan notes) William Barclay says some ancient manuscripst have it down as 616.
    Whatever the number, don’t take it! 🙂

    There is a book that was written by a Jewish believer, Tim Cohen. It’s been out for awhile. He figured it out. It’s called The Antichrist and a Cup of Tea. It can be order through www cuttingedge.org or through Cohen’s site, http://www.prophecyhouse.com. He has really done his homework and I am very sure that the Lord gave him the answers. It’s a long book but well worth the read. Remember, Daniel tells us the man of since is an earthly prince. Logic tells us he will rise from Europe and have to convince the Israelis that he is a Jew or they will not accept him as their (false) messiah. There is only one place and one man who has the global power and illuminati blood lines to fulfill the requirements for the son of perdition. Check the book out; I read it ten years ago and was duly convinced. The Book of Rev plainly states that we can calculate who this guy is…..with wisdom.

    Sorry for the typos, meant ‘man of sin’….typing not my strong point. http://www.cuttingedge.org has some incredible books in their bookstore including the aforementioned incredible work by Tim Cohen. See y’all at the Marriage Supper, I am so READY!

  • By A.L. Howard, July 22, 2009 @ 9:54 pm

    I will look into that book. The statement that he will have to appear to be Jewish has very strong merit.
    I am so ready, myself. Thanks, Gwyneth.

    The beast (man without God) Has risen. Man without God is nothing more then a beast. The antichrist is in power. Men and women who deny the deity of Jesus Christ rule the world. Wake up. The antichrist have taken control of all governments and do not allow God in them. The beast are the masses of lost sinners. Does anyone deny that the antichrist are in control of all of the governing affairs of the world. Keep waiting to see satan and you will. Await and be prepared for the return of the real Christ.

    I find it interesting that the good book says that the mark will be on the hand or on the forehead.
    to me
    hand represents what you do
    Forehead represents what you think
    Is not that what it is all about? what you do, or what you think?

  • By steve creech, August 22, 2009 @ 11:50 pm

    The unpardonable sin has been referred to as to die while still in denial of the Christ. Which would be the ultimate of blaspheme of the Holy Spirit of God. To believe is to follow. If one does not follow the teachings of Lord in their ways or thoughts, are they “marked”? Or if one does not follow the teachings of the Christ by their actions are they “marked” with the number of man and not the mark of God? Is it worth the risk? To know the truth and have no fruit in your life? Therefore be doers of the word!

  • By A.L. Howard, August 23, 2009 @ 7:56 am

    Steve, those are some excellent points. Good food for thought.
    Even the idea that the beast is the unsaved masses is intriguing. However, it is pretty clear by the fact that he is to be thrown into the lake of fire alive, leads me to believe this is a special person or group who is especially wicked.
    (Revelation 19:20)
    I also believe the mark of the beast is most likely to be taken literally – God seals His saints in Revelation – and I do not get the impression that God’s seal is a physical mark. But the fact that people who take the 666 mark will develop horrible sores makes it a pretty sure bet that the mark of the beast is a physical mark. (Revelation 16:2)
