Obama is not the Antichrist

Obama is NOT the Antichrist


I can honestly say that I am not a fan of Obama, nor was I a fan of Bush (just to give equal time). However, I want to address the notion that some Christians are thinking he is the Antichrist.


What are we to look for in the Antichrist? What will he do, what will he be like? The Bible is quite clear about him and for your edification I will enumerate below the qualities, characteristics and actions foretold of the Antichrist.


1. He will perform miracles:


(2 Thessalonians 2:9) Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,



2. The Antichrist will be of Roman origin or using the widest of interpretations European descent. And the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. The people were the Romans in 60 AD...therefore the prince to come ie the Antichrist has to be Roman or European.


(Daniel 9:26) And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.


3. He will cause the daily sacrifice (in the third temple in Jerusalem that hasn't been built yet) to stop.


(Daniel 8:11) Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down.


4. He will make a covenant with Israel for 7 years (1 week is 7 years). And will break it in the middle of the 7 years.


(Daniel 9:27) And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.


5. He will kill Christians and Jews for 3 ½ years:


(Daniel 7:25) And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.


6. He will change times and laws:


(Daniel 7:25) And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.


7. He will not regard the desire of women:


(Daniel 11:37) Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.


8. He makes everyone receive the mark of the beast:


(Revelation 13:16) And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:(Revelation 13:17) And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.


(Revelation 13:18) Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.



9. He is mortally wounded and resurrects:



(Revelation 13:12) And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.


10. He will claim to be God while sitting in the third temple:


(2 Thessalonians 2:4) Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.



Finally, the west is not even spoken of in end time passages. There are a few verses that elude to the west but it is not clear whether it is the west or not. Furthermore, since the Bible says that we are to have a one world government and since the people of the United States would oppose such a government it is my belief that the United States will either be decimated or greatly weakened. So cheer up Obama is not the Antichrist! Nope, things will get much worse, so enjoy the blessings you have for today, for who knows what tomorrow will bring.

Do you still think Obama is the Antichrist?

Thanks Brie, very good hub.

I have a short question - comment: The Antichrist will come from the Roman Empire territory which may cover also Iraq, Turkey... At this present only spirit of Antichrist is here. Am I right?


Brie Hoffman profile image

Brie Hoffman 6 years ago from Manhattan Author

True, but I do personally think that the antichrist is here, alive and waiting in the wings. I think we are very close to the end. There are a few things that still have to happen but they could happen very quickly. The 3rd temple has to be rebuilt, the invasion of Israel by Persia and Russia as foretold in Ezekial. These things could happen anytime but the Ezekial prophesy I think has to happen first because they are burning the weapons for 7 years...the Israelis can't be burning weapons at the end of the 3 1/2 years of the Tribulation because they will be hiding...so that gives us at least 10 and 1/2 years IF the invasion happened today. Do you follow me?

I agree ... the Anti-Christ will be far more deceptive ... I don't particularly enjoy the divisions in Christianity caused by the adamant stances on eschatology ... there's a reason this stuff is not spelled out clearly.

I appreciate not only your verses, but the tone of your hub.

I don't know when the Antichrist will begin to show signs and wonders or what they will be. His false prophet will build the statue and cause it to speak (will perform signs and wonders). I read a book called The Antichrist-Islam Connection that clarifies the revived ancient Roman empire, not the current Roman empire, which includes New Syria and other Muslim countries, so people who label the Catholic Church as the beast appear to be off the mark.

Items 5, 6 and 7 align with Islam. Item 8 is performed by the false prophet; item 9 may be his kingdom that is wounded, for it is one of the heads of the beast (rather than the horn). The Shiite Muslims expect their Mahdi (Messiah) and Isa (their Jesus) to reign for seven years and so much more. This Dictator, when he claims to be "god" may actually offend them.

I believe, based on what is shown in my hub "The Unholy Trinity" that the Antichrist will arise out of Islam, but that doesn't mean Obama IS the Antichrist...yet it doesn't mean he's NOT...time will tell, for sure. The NWO is in the works; and Obama is still a relatively young man.

I always enjoy your hubs, Brie ~ and this is only my take. God bless you, sister.


Brie Hoffman profile image

Brie Hoffman 6 years ago from Manhattan Author

I welcome all ideas as this is not a cut and dry dogmatic interpretation. However, since Obama was born in Kenya or if you want to go there...Hawaii, he doesn't qualify in either location. Not only that, he hasn't fulfilled any of the prophecies. Did you watch the video at the bottom? He has an interesting take on the whole thing and I agree with him.


Judah's Daughter profile image

Judah's Daughter 6 years ago from Roseville, CA

I just watched the video (I forget sometimes you place them below the comments) :-) The basic point of it is that Obama is just a "scape-goat" in the bigger picture (there are 'powers behind the throne'). The Antichrist is not the dragon, and it's the dragon who gives him his power. Rev 13:2 "And the dragon gave him his power and his throne and great authority."

Now, I could be an American born in China and that doesn't make me Chinese...of course. This has more to do with his blood-line and roots of Islam. I don't hate the man, but I observe world events as all who are watching and waiting for the Lord's return.

There certainly is a "interesting" observation out there I recently came across. I think I shared it with you on your Obama has Muslim leanings hub as to the Hebrew words for "lightning from the heights" = baraq o/u bamah. It will be a few years until the NWO is solidified. Israel has yet to rebuild the temple, and with a possible nuclear Iran coming, no doubt a peace treaty may be on the horizon in the near future.

Paul told us we are to be alert so that the Day of the Lord does not overtake us like a thief. I think people are doing just that. Because the Antichrist may even deceive the elect of God it's not going to be "obvious" who he is at first. He will be revealed, the Bible says, before the "Day of the Lord" comes.

Again, just my thoughts ~ I will not claim to be the "all knowing" lol. I enjoy reading and listening to different viewpoints and find them all interesting and fascinating.

I think your wrong about that MarvinE. However, I do believe in a pre-trib rapture, I just think that he will be on the scene b4 the rapture. Maybe he will be a bit behind the scenes at the time so that only those who know the scripture well will be able to point him out.

The bible speaks of someone who is "an antichrist" and the person who is "thee anti-christ" thus one can be an anti-christ and not be THEE anti-christ. I believe Obama to be at least AN ANTI-CHRIST. Small point I guess.

Speaking of Division in the church... one can go to the "christian book store" and look at over 50 different versions of the Bible with completely different verses from Bible to Bible. I believe many of the Bible publishers are all about money. The bible says the church will grow weak in the last days and I think 50+ different versions of the bible has a lot to do with it, though not all.

Most christian book stores peddle a bunch of what I call "Jesus Junk" anyway. That might sound anti-christian but its actually just the opposite.

Sorry Brie, I didn't mean to go off on a tangent here. Great hub I really enjoyed it. God Bless you.

Well, he is pushing the rfid chip and there is talk of him forcing a peace treaty in the Middle East. Maybe that's it. Also he is very charismatic.

your interpretation of the bible is not the interpretation...now i wouldn't get into the obama thing, but the roman thing...no where does it literally say that, though lexicons etc try to make it so...7 hills doesn't have to be rome....also I think you have to consider the church is now the true temple and Israel has been reborn..for 62 years..Daniel mentions 62 weeks of years...who knows....and its on a wing of the temple...its there..divided...the jews have a wall and partial temple....the christians have a third and muslims have a wing...it is on a wing that desolation comes...definitely think it takes more magnification than this...thats why some people practically make a living off studying it...

Joel Rieves 6 years ago

There are a couple of misconceptions or misinterpretations here.

1)You (and a lot of others) are confusing the word "antichrist" with the Beast from Revelation. "Antichrist" itself never appears in the book of Revelation and especially in the context it is popularly used. In the proper context, it meant, literally, "against Christ" and referred to the false teachers that all around the early Christian community.

2) The idea that the events in Revelation is a relatively new one that comes from a premillennial theology known as Dispensationalism, which dates to 1800's with John Nelson Darby. Until fairly recently (the 20th Century), almost all theologians believed that the events of Revelation had already happened. The book was written, not as literal prophecy, but as a message of hope to Christians who undergoing severe persecution by Rome (the Beast).


Brie Hoffman profile image

Brie Hoffman 6 years ago from Manhattan Author

The beast and the Antichrist are one and the same. I disagree with your interpretation and even if they did think it was Rome, they were wrong or maybe it applies to both.

gracenotes 6 years ago from North Texas

Can't disagree with you, Brie.

As far as I can tell from scripture, the Anti-Christ will cause people to believe a lie.

Even from the time he was running as a presidential candidate, Obama certainly didn't fool everyone. There were many people who were suspicious of his motives, and didn't see the charismatic quality that was constantly hyped in the media. His declining popularity has only reinforced this impression - at least in this country!

Good hub.

FIRSTLY YOU NEED THE HELP OF THE HOLY SPIRIT TO INTERPRET THE SCRIPTURE. FIRSTLY THE RAPTURE WILL NOT TAKE PLACE UNTIL THE ANTICHRIST COME LET US EXAMINE THE SCRIPTURE IN 2ND THESSALONIANS CHAPTER 2 IT SAYS CONCERNING THE COMING OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST AND OUR BEING GATHERED TO HIM WE ASK YOU BROTHERS NOT TO BECOME EASILY UNSETTLED OR ALARMED BY SOME PROPHECY REPORT OR LETTER SUPPOSED TO HAVE COME FROM US SAYING THAT THE DAY OF THE LORD HAS ALREADY COME. DON`T LET ANYONE DECIEVE YOU IN ANY WAY, FOR THAT DAY WILL NOT COME UNTIL THE REBELLION OCCURS AND THE MAN OF LAWLESSNESS REVEALED(ANTICHRIST) THE MAN DOOMED TO DESTRUCTION. SO IN ANOTHER WORD THE RAPTURE MIGHT NOT TAKE PLACE UNTIL THE ANTICHRIST IS REVEALED. THE ANICHRIST WILL CLAIM TO PEOPLE THAT IS GOD BY USING MIRACLES TO DECIVE THEM LET EXAMINE THE SCRIPTURES 2ND THESSALONIANS VS 9 THE COMING OF THE LAWLESS ONE WILL BE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE WORK OF SATAN DISPLAYING IN ALL KINDS OF COUNTERFIT MIRACLES SIGN AND WONDERS AND IN EVERY SORT OF EVIL THAT DECIEVE THOSE PERISHING. SO THE ANTICHRIST WILL PERFORM MIRACES AND ALSO THE FALSE PROPHET WILL PERFORM MIRACLES TO SUPPORT THE ANTI CHRIST IN HIS SATANIC MISSION.

Well, there are many who disagree so I would hardly say that it is a settled matter.


dan 6 years ago

We are to look at the signs and with the help of the Holy Spirit, perhaps we can ascertain who the Anti-Christ is. We should be very careful about trying to tag specific world events as fulfilling a particular prophecy and further, predict the end of the world based off that interpreted prophecy fulfillment. Hal Lindsay found that out the hard way. A lot of interpretation and assumption is needed to tag a current world event as prophecy fulfillment, especially with the rather obscure prophecies. When we start getting into that 360 day year vs. 365 day year…..and 120 Jubilee years X 50 is 6000 and coming up with a calculation that produces a date…….we raise the chances of being wrong on our conclusions. If we are not careful, we could wind up building a multi-level theory that draws conclusions with a limited chance for accuracy.

Obama could be the Anti-Christ and the Real Christ could return in 2017. If something is signed in the way of a decree within the next 4 months having to do with the status of Jerusalem. That could possibly be the decree that fulfills scripture and sets the ground work for further prophesy fulfillment regarding the Anti-Christ. It could be the event that starts the clock on the last 7 year period predicted in Daniel ending with the return of our Savior. But we need to be very careful here.

Every president of the US has had a foreign policy regarding Israel, it is very hard to get elected for a 2nd term unless you show some progress in the Middle East, or at least perceived progress. Obama will be no exception. But even if he fosters a perceived peace between the Arabs and Israel within the next 4 months, that doesn’t mean that he is the Anti-Christ. BUT….if he does this, and in 2013 after he is re-elected for a 2nd term, he abolishes the daily sacrifices in the Temple, then he sits on the throne and claims to be God, I’d say we’ve located the Anti-Christ. Hopefully, We are the Restrainer and the rapture is pre-trib so the Church won’t have to be physically present for the fulfillment of these prophecies.

DO YOU THINK THE WEAPONS OF WAR COULD BE NUCLEAR. I UNDERSTAND THAT THE USE OF THESE POWER PLANTS FOR ALTERNATIVE FUEL IS HOW ENRICHED URANIUM IS PRODUCED. IF OBAMA IS THE ANTICHRIST HE HAS ALREADY BEEN SEEN STANDING AT HOLY PLACE IN JULY 2008, THEREFORE IS IT POSSIBLE THE TRIBULATION HAS ALREADY STARTED.iS IT ALSO POSSIBLE THAT A PEACE DEAL WAS CONFIRMED BY OBAMA WITHOUT THE PUBLIC REALISING IT. IT IS DIFFUCLT TO UNDERSTAND HOW GOD COULD RETURN LIKE A THIEF IN THE NIGHT IN HIS FINAL COMING WHEN THE 7 YEAR TIMELINE FROM THE PEACE DEAL CONFIRMATION IS WIDELY KNOWN. I AM NOT SAYING THE PRESIDENT IS THE ANTICHRIST, JUST WATCHING AND WONDERING.

No way that we are in the Tribulation yet!


Johnny 6 years ago

BRIE WHAT COULD BE A EXPLAINATION OF THE THIEF IN THE NIGHT COMING? I KNOW THERE IS PLENTY OF POSSIBILITIES OUT THERE ON ALL THE FINAL EVENTS. SEVENTH DAY CHURCH SEEMS TO THINK MOST OF REVELATION HAS HAPPENED ALREADY AND THERE IS NO PRE-TRIB RAPTURE. THEY ALSO THINK THE SABITH IS SATURDAY. I DONT KNOW ABOUT ALL THEIR BELIEFS BUT THE SATURDAY SABITH SEEMS CORRECT. THE MORE POPULAR PRE-TRIB RAPTURE HAS SOME PROBLEMS TOO. THE BIBLE TELLS US THAT WE WILL KNOW WHEN IT IS NEAR,EVEN AT THE DOOR, AND TO WATCH, SO IT WILL NOT COME ON US LIKE A THIEF IN THE NIGHT. I DONT KNOW HOW EVERYTHING WILL PLAY OUT, OR IF ANYONE IS CORRECT ON EVERYTHING BUT TALKING AND WATCHING DOES BUILD FAITH. YOUR HUB IS INSPIRATIONAL.


Brie Hoffman profile image

Brie Hoffman 6 years ago from Manhattan Author

Johnny, the confusion is that people get the rapture mixed up with the the second coming. So ..it will come as a thief in the night is the rapture (no time constraints could happen at any time) but the second coming we are told actually to the day in the last chapter of Daniel. Regarding the Sabbath, I consider everyday a day unto the Lord. We are not under the law so I wouldn't worry about it.

Thanks for commenting

Perry Ousia 6 years ago

HI. God bless you. I would like to offer these facts for your consideration. The current pres. has admitted openly that he would not want his daughter "punished with a baby" if she were to make a "mistake". He was supported in his election by planned parenthood international. His HHS secretary is also pro-abortion even to late term, which is MURDER. His science "czar" also openly promotes abortion.

The current pres. also openly admitted his "muslim faith" on national television even though he claims to be a christian. His stepfathers and family in Kenya are muslims. There are videos on UTube that verify this. This means he is an apostate muslim. Sometimes, it seems as though he may be atheistic.

Daniel 11;37 describes the "king of the north" in this manner; "Neither will he honour the god of his fathers, nor the desire of women(is this not childbirth?), nor any god; for he shall exalt himself above them all".

The current administration has increased the use of unmanned aerial vehicles, or "drones" in difficult areas of Pakistan and Afghanistan eliminating enemy positions that are difficult to reach and extraordinarily hazarous to American pilots. These pilots can target enemies in real time aided by cameras on the U.A.V.s while watching from thousands of miles away via PC monitor. Footage obtained from these attacks can also be found on UTube and can only be described as insidious and obliterating. Revelation 13;13 desribes perhaps a similar situation concerning the coming of the "man of sin"; "And he shall show great wonders, even causing fire to come down from heaven to earth in the sight of men".

There are other verses pointing in the same manner in the book of Daniel.

How many people have been in an airplane,(didn't exist 2,000 years ago) or have been in a hospital and had surgery(couldn't do that 2,000 years ago) how many people fly back and forth to Israel everyday to participate in an ancient sacrificial ritual. "They fell from the sky in puffs of clouds and called themselves the sons of God." Can you say parachutes.

If you want to understand this better watch the movies Star Trek the movie, The Wrath of Khan, The Search for Spock, The original Star Wars Trilogy(compare the emperor to Obama) and Countdown to Looking Glass(the beast with 7 heads and 10 thunders/ a submarine launches a Polaris missile, 7 independent warheads each with a yield of 10 megatons, this movie came out in 1984 and takes place in the Mideast. Also watch Apocalypse Now and see fire come down from God in Heaven, and see Stargate to see The God Ra. You should really check out "da-vids" get enlightened. The 7 thunders are the 7 dirty words you can't say on tv, the 7 spirits of God are 7 days, and the four and twenty elders are 24 hours.
