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.
