Is Barack Hussein Obama the Antichrist of the End Time ?
There are Four Important Characteristics of the Antichrist
The only place in the Holy Bible where the word"Antichrist" appears is in the epistles of John the Apostle.
"Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour. They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us." (1 Jn. 2:18-19)
"For many deceivers have gone out into the world who do not confess Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an Antichrist." (2 Jn. 7)
Here are the four important characteristics of the Antichrist that we can learn from the above verses.
A. There are "many antichrists" and not just one as some modern-day eschatologists believe and teach.
B. The"antichrists" have already existed in the First Century.
C. The "antichrists" have left the Christian Church. They were never saved.
D. The "antichrist" is a great "deceiver".
"Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son.Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also." (1 Jn. 2:22-23)
Historical Antichrists through the Ages
Roman Emperor Caesar Flavius Constantine (c. 285-337) He was an avid sun-worshiper, and when he converted to Christianity and joined the Catholic Church he brought in paganism at the same time. This is illustrated by the first law he enacted. "First Sunday Law enacted by Emperor Constantine in March, 321 A.D. Constantine convened the Nicene Council in 325 A.D. in which the theology of the Trinity was formulated.
Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821 AD) Napoleon was the conqueror of Europe. By 1802 Napoleon was the most popular dictator France had ever known, and he was given the position of first consul for life with the right to name his successor. The establishment of the Empire on May 18, 1804 thus changed little except the name of the government. The Constitution of the Year VIII was altered only to provide for an imperial government; its spirit was not changed. The Emperor of the French created a new nobility, set up a court, and changed the titles of government officials; but the average Frenchman noticed little difference.
In 1804, Napoleon was made emperor, a title that was traditionally conferred by the Pope. But during the ceremony, Napoleon took the crown from the pope's hands and crowned himself emperor and his wife, Josephine, empress. This sent the cold and clear message that he, unlike Holy Roman Emperors of the past, would not share his power with the pope.
Adolf Hitler (April 20 1889 - April 30 1945) Hitler was raised by Roman Catholic parents, but after he left home, he never attended Mass or received the sacraments. He had anti-Christian sentiments and these are some of them:
- Christianity is a religion that defends the weak and the low
- It is purely Jewish and oriental in origin
- It forces people to bend their backs to the sound of church bells and crawl to the cross of a foreign god
- It began 2000 years ago among sick, exhausted, and despairing men who had lost their belief in life
- The Christian tenets of forgiveness of sin, resurrection, and salvation are plain nonsense
- The Christian of mercy is a dangerous, un-German idea
- Christian love is a silly concept because love paralyses men
- The Christian idea of equality protects the racially inferior, the ill, the weak, and the crippled
Bible Prophecy of a Very Powerful and Deceptive Antichrist in the End Time
Bible Prophecy of a Wicked Politician
"Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon." (Rev. 13:11)
In prophetic Scriptures the word "beast" is used figuratively of a corrupted and ungodly man (Ecc. 3:18; 2 Pet. 2:12; Jude 10). Hence, the apostle Paul wrote: "I have fought with beasts at Ephesus" (1 Cor. 15:32).
The apostle John's prophecy describes a powerful man who will emerge in the world during the End Time. This man has " two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon." The lamb is a symbol of a weak Christian (Jn. 21:15). In biblical prophecy the horns represent the power of wicked kingdoms (Dan. 7:7-8; Rev. 13:1).
The "dragon" point to the "Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him." (Rev. 12:9). The devil "does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it." (Jn. 8:44)
The Bible prophecy that states "he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon" can refer to a wicked politician who claims to be a Christian but tells lies in order to gain political power to rule a nation.
The revelation that John received evokes the image of a false Christian who has risen in power. He has a charming and engaging personality. He is an erudite and eloquent orator but also a great deceiver of the American public.
Barack Obama is not a true Christian and he definitely preaches a false and perverted gospel
Obama contends belief in Jesus Christ is not necessary for salvation
AP - 3/27/2008 8:00:00 AM
GREENSBORO, N.C. - Senator Barack Obama has told an audience that although he believes Christ died for his sins, those who reject that teaching can also be children of God.
During a campaign stop yesterday in Greensboro, North Carolina, Senator Obama told the audience that he believes he "can have everlasting life" because Jesus Christ died for his sins. But he then told a questioner that he believes Jews and Muslims who live moral lives are just as much "children of God" as he is. (listen to audio clip)
The Illinois Democrat added that his late mother didn't share his faith but was a kind and generous person, so he's "sure she's in heaven." (listen to audio clip)
Barack Obama is preaching a false gospel about the Lord Jesus Christ. If Jews and Muslims who do not believe the Lord Jesus Christ is God manifested in the flesh and do not accept Him as their Lord and Savior are also called "Children of God" then Jesus died on the Cross in vain. The Lord Jesus Christ warned: "Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins." (Jn. 8:24) The Holy Bible states: "But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name." (Jn. 1:12) "For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus." (Gal. 3:27) "By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep His commandments." (1 Jn. 5:2).
Jesus Christ said it very clearly and plainly: "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." (Jn. 14:6) No one can become the children of God without believing in the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Antichrist is a Powerful Leader who has authority over the Three Aspects of the World Government
The apostle John had warned about the coming of the Antichrist in his letters to the Christians of his time (1 John 2:18, 22; 4:3; 2 John 7). In the Book of Revelation John describes the Antichrist as a powerful World Leader who has authority over the three aspects of a global government.
1. Politics "And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed." (Rev. 13:12)
2. Religion "He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed." (Rev. 13:15)
3. Economics "And he causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name." (Rev. 13:16)
President Elect Barack Obama is accepted as a World Political Leader
On the night of November 4, 2008 Senator Barack Obama was declared the winner of the Presidential Election by a 2:1 landslide victory over Senator John McCain. Obama had 364 electoral votes to McCain's 162.
Britain's Economist conducted a Global Electoral College from its 52,000 readers from around the world. More than 44,000 voted for Obama while only about 8,000 for McCain - a ratio of 5:1 victory for Obama which is a much greater landslide than that of the U.S. Elections. Obama won the backing of an overwhelming share of voters in 56 countries - including the likes of Canada, Britain, Germany, France, Italy, Indonesia and South Korea - claiming the support of 90% (or more) of those who voted. Barack Obama will not only be the President of the United States, but he will also be the President of the World if such an election were to take place.
Leaders of various nations in the world congratulated Barack Obama on his historic win in the U.S. Presidential Elections
President-elect Obama accepted congratulations from nine presidents and prime ministers Thursday, returning calls from world leaders who reached out after his presidential victory. Obama spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter said the president-elect spoke to Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Japanese Prime Minister Taro Aso, Mexican President Felipe Calderon, South Korean President Lee Myung-bak and British Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
Even Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad congratulated Barack Obama on his election win - the first time an Iranian leader has offered such wishes to a U.S. president-elect since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
The United States of America has been and still is the most powerful nation on earth. The President of the United States will be the most powerful man on earth.
Whilst this must surely be celebration and jubilation by Obama supporters all over the world, there is cause for concern by Christian eschatologists who are keeping a watchful eye on who would be the Antichrist of our Time. Such a person would be Satan's Most Powerful Representative on Earth. Is President Elect Barack Obama the One that the apostle John had prophesied in the Book of Revelation? We shall further study the other aspects of the Antichrist.
