Who is the Antichrist?
The case for Barack Hussein Obama
Who is the Antichrist?
While having done nothing to bring about world peace and not even having been in office for yet two weeks, Barack Obama had been awarded the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize, causing reporters to gasp in amazement.
He thanked the Norwegians for the honor by snubbing the Nobel committee, the Norwegian people, and their King. Despite having received the award, he would continue to prosecute the war in the Near East without a second thought.
Speaking of Barack Obama, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan stated,
Others have made comparisons between him and the long prophesied Antichrist. These comparisons range from the thoughtful to the downright silly. In one version, the author states:
This is ludicrous for a number of reasons. To begin, there is no biblical book called “The Book of Revelations.” There is indeed a biblical book called “Revelation,” but it makes no case for a 40 year old Antichrist (the term “Antichrist” appears nowhere in the book of Revelation) nor does it describe anyone of the Muslim faith, the prophecies of the Apocalypse being written nearly 500 years before the advent of Islam.
Although given the rancorous tone of the 2008 election, a bit of hyperbole is to be expected, there are indications that Barack Obama has a political agenda that is much less than Christian. Such an anti-Christian political bent surely does not represent enough evidence to lead a reasonable individual to conclude that Obama is the one Christians call the Antichrist. Despite the foregoing, there are a number of mysterious circumstances surrounding Obama’s emergence on the national political scene.
The first irregularity encompasses the issue of whether or not Obama has a legal right to assume the Presidency. Anyone who should question his legitimate right to rule America due to this issue is smeared and labeled a “Birther.” To date, the issue as to whether Obama is a legitimate candidate for the office of the president of the United States has not been settled to the satisfaction of the American people. There is an image of a document which is alleged to be Obama’s actual birth certificate showing that he was born in Kenya. The question of Obama's legitimacy to hold the highest office in America refuses to go away and his simple denials without documentable refutation have done nothing to quell the concerns of the people.
A number of peculiarities surround the issue. Some images purported to be either original or forgeries of the document have been scrubbed from the internet. There is evidence that the President himself has made anomalous statements regarding the place of his birth. The issue is so confusing that even the President can’t seem to get his facts straight.
The state of Hawaii has even gone so far as to propose a law preventing people from even inquiring about Obama's birth records.
It’s not only Obama’s birth records which have been sealed but other records relating to his past. It seems as though Obama has much to hide. There are other irregularities surrounding Barack Obama including reports that his election campaign was financed surreptitiously.
Some suggest that Obama and his wife Michelle are similar in appearance to Pharaoh Akhenaten and his mother, Queen Tiye. These uncanny resemblance’s aside, is there any Biblical or historical information by which one might make a case for Obama being the one Christians have traditionally called, “the Antichrist?”
Clues to The identity of the Antichrist
We do have some information upon which to base tentative assumptions about this coming leader.
Revelation 13:1 Describes the rise of what some believe to be the final world leader, often called “Antichrist.”
We are told in Revelation 19:20 that he does not die, nor does his accomplice, but both are cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
In 2nd Thessalonians chapter 2, Paul addressed the fears of some in the church, who upon hearing rumors containing false teaching, became concerned as to whether they might have missed the return of our Savior and their gathering together to Him. In that address, Paul also wrote about the coming world leader, to whom we now refer generally as the “Antichrist”, calling him the “Man of sin” and “ son of perdition”.
In prayer, Christ himself used this phrase “son of perdition”, to describe Judas Iscariot, who upon receiving the spirit of Satan, betrayed Christ for a reward. (John 17:12) It would appear as though Satan, in yet another copycat episode, would enter into this Antichrist, just as he had entered into Judas, only this time, Judas would not be the follower, but would be the leader.
In Revelation 13:3, we are given a picture this leader having global dominance and we see what would appear to be an assassination attempt upon this “Antichrist.”
The question raised here is: Could Barack Obama be the beast which receives the deadly wound, only to be healed miraculously?
