The primary intent of this, and subsequent reports, is to alert folks of all faiths, to the reality of the imminent return of Jesus Christ the true Messiah. Secondarily, it is to lay out some facts, both from Scripture and from observable history, and then let the evidence lead where it will when addressing the question "Could Barrack Hussein Obama be the Biblical Antichrist". As outrageous a question as it may seem, and while many have been pigeon holed into the role over the years, there really is some compelling evidence in favor of the suggestion that the 44th President of the United States of America, Barrack Hussein Obama, may well be the prophesied Antichrist, or at least, is pretending to be. Now, because of the enormity of the task and the information involved, I'll have to split this report into several parts. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
These are certainly tumultuous times. World events show clear portents of something incredibly dark and ominous looming large on the world's horizon. The obvious apostasy of the professing Christian Church, the imminent global financial meltdown, the rise of a tyrannical Global Government, the incessant beating of war drums, and the [premeditated] Islamic invasion of Europe, has seen the world scrambling for answers, and theologians for explanations. Is this generation the "Time of the end" spoken of in Daniel 12:9?
Unbeknownst to many, sadly, is the reality that both Christians and Muslims alike, although worshipping a completely different God, are both expecting the return of their respective messiah's. For the Christian, that Messiah is Jesus Christ the Son of God. For the Muslim it is the Mahdi. Dr. John MacArthur in a sermon entitled "The Grim Reality of the Last Days" points to the truth, as unpalatable as it is to followers of Islam, that the expected Muslim messiah is in fact the Biblical Antichrist, as does Dr. Michael Youssef. Joel Richardson also contends that the coming Muslim "messiah" will indeed be the Antichrist. Throughout history, even amongst students of eschatology, the identity of the prophesied Antichrist has been a long and fiercely debated issue. In many ways, the understanding of biblical eschatology, or the study of the end times, can be somewhat of a trail of bread crumbs when it comes to determining unfolding events and characters pertaining to the very last days. Many have made lucrative businesses peddling all manner of doom and gloom, and many outrageous things are suggested in their scenarios, the most recent of which was the widely popular 4 Blood Moons debacle.
The reality is, Antichrist will arise in someone's generation. The question is, will it be ours? Here's what's been on my mind...
Antichrist - A Self Inflated Ego Manic
“He shall seduce with flattery those who violate the covenant, but the people who know their God shall stand firm and take action. And the wise among the people shall make many understand, though for some days they shall stumble by sword and flame, by captivity and plunder. When they stumble, they shall receive a little help. And many shall join themselves to them with flattery, and some of the wise shall stumble, so that they may be refined, purified, and made white, until the time of the end, for it still awaits the appointed time. And the king shall do as he wills. He shall exalt himself and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak astonishing things against the God of gods. He shall prosper till the indignation is accomplished; for what is decreed shall be done. He shall pay no attention to the gods of his fathers, or to the one beloved by women. He shall not pay attention to any other god, for he shall magnify himself above all. He shall honor the god of fortresses instead of these. A god whom his fathers did not know he shall honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and costly gifts”. Daniel 11:32-38
In the above passage we see that there will be both a seduction into deception and a great awakening at the time of the end. This great awakening will not be a "revival" within the Christian Church for apostasy is foretold for her (2 Thessalonians 2:3), but rather an awakening as to what is really going on in the world. Many will be turned to see the truth, and many will infiltrate the ranks of those enlightening others using seduction and flattery, and as a result, some of the truth tellers (the wise) will stumble. These "wise" ones will be Christians because in Vs 32 we are told these are they whoknow their God, stand firm and take action - and in Vs 35 they are "refined, purified, and made white". Verse 36 speaks of a king who does as he pleases and exalts himself above all others. Never before in United States history has the White House been occupied by such a flagrantly lawless President. Obama is guilty of multiple breaches of the U.S. Constitution and yet amazingly, he gets away with it time after time after time. He does as he pleases, as does the Antichrist of Daniel 11. This "king" (who will be / is Antichrist) is a narcissistic ego maniac, a sociopath (Vs 36). Sociopaths, though often charming people and full of airs and graces, are in reality, consummate deceivers. They are often spontaneous and intense, more so than others. They are incapable of feeling shame or guilt or even remorse. They invent outrageous lies about themselves and their achievements. Sociopaths seek to dominate others and "win" at all costs. Though they are highly intelligent (from a worldly perspective), and often speak eloquently, even poetically, they are incapable of empathy or love. They never apologize because in their own minds they are blameless. And sociopaths are delusional, literally believing that what they say becomes truth. Barack Hussein Obama is a classical sociopath. Here's a smattering of evidence to suggest such...
In 2007 Morgan Freeman approached Obama at a fundraiser. Obama said “This guy was president before I was,” referring to Freeman’s role in Deep Impact. Then he [Obama] addressed Freeman’s role as God in Bruce Almighty: “This guy was God before I was.”
At the Al Smith dinner in October 2008 Obama said "Who is Barack Obama? Contrary to the rumors you have heard, I was not born in a manger. I was actually born on Krypton and sent here by my father Jor-El to save the Planet Earth. Many of you know that I got my name, Barack, from my father. What you may not know is Barack is actually Swahili for ‘That One.’ And I got my middle name from somebody who obviously didn't think I'd ever run for president. If I had to name my greatest strength, I guess it would be my humility. Greatest weakness, it's possible that I'm a little too awesome."
Once [jokingly?] claimed to be from Krypton. Now, whether Obama, or more to the point, his handlers, intended this correlation, or whether Obama's bloated ego compelled him to such narcissistic "humor", the fact remains that he evidently sees himself as the savior of the world. As does actor Jamie Fox.
"It’s very rare that I come to an event where I’m like the fifth- or sixth-most interesting person."
Obama is a pathological liar. Hardly anything exiting his mouth is the truth, or even close to it, that is just a fact. And the fact that multitudes take him at his word shows the great delusion enveloping this ever darkening world. But then lying to "the infidel" is permitted in Islam (Quran 3:28) (al-Taqiyya: deception; the Islamic word for concealing or disguising one’s beliefs, convictions, ideas, feelings, opinions, and/or strategies. Muslims lie when it is in their interest to do so and “Allah” will not hold them accountable for lying when it is beneficial to the cause of Islam. They can lie without any guilt or fear of accountability or retribution. A lie in the defense of Islam is approved even applauded in their “holy” books.
"Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them. - Matthew 7:15-20
"The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks." - Luke 6:45
Obama on Christianity and Islam
In prepared remarks in April 2012, Obama referred to Jesus as “a” Son of God rather than as “the” Son of God: “And for me, and I’m sure for some of you, it’s also a chance to remember the tremendous sacrifice that led up to that day, and all that Christ endured - not just as a Son of God, but as a human being.”
The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam”
“The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer”
“Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance.” (here's where delusion kicks in)
“These rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings.”
“Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism – it is an important part of promoting peace.”
“Throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality.”
“That experience guides my conviction that partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn’t. And I consider it part of my responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.” (From a man who claims to be a Christian... Man if you believe that I have a bridge...)
“Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation”
Even those who claim the Bible’s inerrancy make distinctions between Scriptural edicts, sensing that some passages – the Ten Commandments, say, or a belief in Christ’s divinity – are central to Christian faith, while others are more culturally specific and may be modified to accommodate modern life.”
"...I've got two daughters. 9 years old and 6 years old. I am going to teach them first of all about values and morals. But if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby." (Punished with a baby?)
Obama’s response when asked what his definition of sin is: “Being out of alignment with my values.” (exulting himself above all gods)
“This is something that I’m sure I’d have serious debates with my fellow Christians about. I think that the difficult thing about any religion, including Christianity, is that at some level there is a call to evangelize and prostelytize. There’s the belief, certainly in some quarters, that people haven’t embraced Jesus Christ as their personal savior that they’re going to hell.”
“I find it hard to believe that my God would consign four-fifths of the world to hell. I can’t imagine that my God would allow some little Hindu kid in India who never interacts with the Christian faith to somehow burn for all eternity. That’s just not part of my religious makeup.” (Still think he's a Christian?)
“I don’t presume to have knowledge of what happens after I die. But I feel very strongly that whether the reward is in the here and now or in the hereafter, the aligning myself to my faith and my values is a good thing.” (Not aligning himself to Christ and His righteousness, no, aligning himself to his faith (Islam) and his values.
“I’ve said this before, and I know this raises questions in the minds of some evangelicals. I do not believe that my mother, who never formally embraced Christianity as far as I know … I do not believe she went to hell.” Obama's mother, apart from being a porn star, was also a communist. She was unsaved and is indeed in Hell.
“Those opposed to abortion cannot simply invoke God’s will–they have to explain why abortion violates some principle that is accessible to people of all faiths.” Um, how about "Thou Shalt Not Murder? Exodus 20:13
“In our household, the Bible, the Koran and the Bhagavad Gita sat on the shelf alongside books of Greek and Norse and African mythology”
“We have Jews, Muslims, Hindus, atheists, agnostics, Buddhists, and their own path to grace is one that we have to revere and respect as much as our own”
“I believe that there are many paths to the same place, and that is a belief that there is a higher power, a belief that we are connected as a people.”
Obama and Satan's Seat
“And to the angel of the church in Pergamum write, ‘These things says He who has the sharp two-edged sword: “I know your works, and where you dwell, where SATAN'S THRONE is." - Revelation 2:12-13
The ruins of the ancient city of Pergamum are located in modern day Turkey. Turkey, a NATO ally, has recently been linked with aiding and abetting the terrorist group ISIS in their U.N. quest to overthrow Syria with a view to an Islamic Caliphate for the entire middle east, including Israel. The image in the side bar to your right shows the actual seat the Lord was referring to - the altar of Zeus which was in Pergamum at the time John received the revelation. Below it is a picture of a stage Obama had purpose built for a speech he delivered in Denver in 2008 when he was named the Democratic National Candidate for President of the United States. Why did Obama have a replica of Satan's seat constructed?
The God of Fortresses
"He shall honor the god of fortresses instead of these. A god whom his fathers did not know he shall honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and costly gifts”. Daniel 11:38
Who or what is the god of fortresses mentioned in Daniel 11:38? The word translated "fortresses" is "Mauzzim". Henry Wallace comments on this word...
"moz'-em, mots'-em (ma`uzzim, "places of strength," "fortress"): Many conjectures as to the meaning of this word and its context (Daniel 11:38; compare Daniel 11:19,39) have been made. The Septuagint (uncertainly), Theodotion, and the Geneva Version render it as a proper name. Theodoret adopted Theodotion's reading and explained it as "Antichrist"! Grotius thought it a corruption of "Azizos, the Phoenician war-god, while Calvin saw in it the "god of wealth"! Perhaps the buzz of conjectures about the phrase is owing to the fact that in the first passage the word cited is preceded by 'Eloah, meaning God. The context of the passage seems clearly to make the words refer to Antiochus Epiphanes, and on this account some have thought that the god Mars--whose figure appears on a coin of Antiochus--is here referred to. All this is, however, little better than guesswork, and the Revised Version (British and American) translation, by setting the mind upon the general idea that the monarch referred to would trust in mere force, gives us, at any rate, the general sense, though it does not exclude the possibility of a reference to a particular deity. In Daniel 11:19 and 39, the word "Mauzzim" is simply translated "fortresses," and the idea conveyed is that the mental obsession of fortresses is equivalent to deifying them. A conjecture of Layard's (Nineveh, II, 456, note), is, at any rate, worth referring to".
Joel Richardson in his book The Mid East Beast - The Scriptural Case for an Islamic Antichrist writes: “He [Antichrist] will show no regard for the god of his fathers or for the desire of women, nor will he show regard for any other god; for he will magnify himself above them all. But instead he will honor a god of fortresses, a god whom his fathers did not know; he will honor him with gold, silver, costly stones and treasures” (Daniel 11:37–38 NKJV). Contained here are some very important statements concerning the religious views of the Antichrist. This passage has led some Christians to make dogmatic declarations concerning the Antichrist’s beliefs, based on an isolated portion of this passage, while ignoring other portions. For instance, I have heard it quoted, “He will show no regard for any other god” to support the claim that the Antichrist will be an atheist. Others have quoted, “He will show no regard for … the desire of women” as proof that he will be homosexual. Still others have quoted, “He will show no regard for the god of his fathers” as proof that he will be a Jew who converted to another religion or simply rejects Judaism. But to understand the full picture painted here requires a holistic analysis of the passage. I personally believe these verses contain a fourfold statement of the Antichrist’s faith. The first three elements are negative, defining that which the Antichrist rejects and denies. The fourth component reveals that which the Antichrist affirms: The Antichrist rejects “the God of his fathers.” The Antichrist rejects “the desire of women.” The Antichrist rejects “every other god.” The Antichrist affirms and honors “a god of forces.” - Richardson, Joel (2012-06-08). Mideast Beast: The Scriptural Case for an Islamic Antichrist (pp. 125-126). Joel Richardson.
"... in Daniel 11:38, we come to that which the Antichrist affirms: “He shall honor the god of fortresses instead of these. A god whom his fathers did not know he shall honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and costly gifts.” The King James Version translates it as “the God of forces.” But what does this mean? John Walvoord wrote, “The sole confidence of the final world ruler is in military power, personified as a ‘god of war.’” Scholars’ and commentators’ opinions have been quite conflicting here. Some see a specific god here and have attempted to identify him with certain gods of history. Hebrew scholar Wilhelm Gesenius, for instance, sees here a reference to Jupiter Capitolinus. Others have seen a reference to Mars, the god of war. Still others have attempted to cast this “god” as no god at all, but rather, a reference to the Antichrist’s commitment to military conquest. Lahaye and Hindson, for instance stated, “This king is a pagan who reveres only military might.” Commenting on this passage, Walvoord also said the Antichrist “is a complete materialist.” But seeing the Antichrist as an atheistic materialist solely bent on conquest is simply not the natural reading of the passage. This essential point must not be missed. If the Antichrist is to be an atheist, dedicated to conquest, believing in no other power than himself, then the addition of the word “god” here only serves to confuse the actual meaning of the passage. So also does the fact that the Antichrist offers gifts of “gold, silver, costly stones and treasures” as traditional worshippers do. This god is also specifically designated as “a foreign god” further pointing to a specific god worshipped by an unnamed “foreign” people. He does not worship the God of the Jews. After considering all of the evidence, the most natural reading of the text is to see the Antichrist as a worshipper of a specific god of war. The history of the Middle East, of course, is filled with the worship of astral-and-war deities. Thus, we see that the Antichrist, while rejecting God the Father, God the Son, and all of the other various gods" - Richardson, Joel (2012-06-08). Mideast Beast: The Scriptural Case for an Islamic Antichrist (pp. 130-131). Joel Richardson.
Deception in the Church suggests, based on the work of Reverend Alexander Hislop, author of The Two Babylons, that the god of fortresses here refers to the ancient pagan goddess Astarte who, among many other names, refers to the pagan Egyptian deity: ISIS... which I thought was rather interesting considering the Islamic scourge of the same name trampling down the earth... or so we are told. Ralph Woodrow of The Christian Research Institute, once an avid supporter and promoter of Hislop's 1807–1862 work, now argues against much of it. You can read Woodrow's critique HERE.
So as you can see there is much speculation, diversity of thought and even vigorous disagreement among those studying eschatology as to the identity of Antichrist. The question we are posing here is "Is Barrack Hussein Obama a candidate for the position?" And the answer is, quite possibly yes. And, aside from what has already been mentioned, here is (one) reason why:
I see a progression here do you? A [false] man of peace, concurrently a man of lawlessness, a Muslim, a liar, a murderer, a worshipper of power, a deceiver, a seducer of the brethren seeking to rule the world...
Join us for part two... Coming soon, the Lord willing.
