Nearing Midnight: Is Obama the Antichrist?

I did a search on “Is Obama the Antichrist?” and found very little current information on this subject. One search pointed right back to Rapture Ready. So, I guess I need to provide my own answer the question.

There was once a time when you couldn’t be called a world leader unless there was some group identifying you as the Antichrist. Lately, pin the tail on the AC has become a dying art. Back in the nineties, every prophecy conference that I would visit had someone labeling a political leader as the AC. I remember attending an afternoon session at a God‘s News Behind the News conference where four speakers in a row tagged Bill Clinton as the Beast.

Today, we’ve gone in the opposite direction. I was recently at a prophecy conference where Barack Obama’s name never came up once. He seems to be mysteriously coated with Teflon when it comes to any speculation of him having an end-times role. When you have someone who would have to hold a news conference while wearing horns and the number “666” tattooed on his forehead to get the attention of Bible scholars, that is the guy you need to keep an eye on.

Robert Jeffress, senior pastor at First Baptist Church in Dallas, deserves credit for daring to state the obvious fact on this subject. He said if Obama wins the election, his victory would lead to the reign of the Antichrist:

“I want you to hear me tonight,” he said. “I am not saying that President Obama is the Antichrist, I am not saying that at all… But what I am saying is this: the course he is choosing to lead our nation is paving the way for the future reign of the Antichrist.”

The statement by Jeffress became yet another example of how Obama is being shielded from any criticism. Here we have a leading pastor comparing Obama to Satan‘s evil spawn, and the press turned the story into a debate on why Jeffress recommended people voting for Romney, a member of the Mormon cult. Jeffress argued back that when you have a choice between two evils, you go for the lesser one.

As Christians, we are responsible for understanding the signs of the times. One of the best ways to know how close we are to the Tribulation hour is to track how ready the world is for the rise of the Antichrist. Here is a quick overview of what the Bible says about the Antichrist:

Daniel 11:36-43: He will magnify himself above God.

Daniel 8:23-25: He will be a problem solver.

Revelation 6:2: Everyone will think he wants peace.

Revelation 13:2: Satan is behind the Antichrist’s power.

Revelation 13:5: He will have great political power.

Daniel 9:24-27: He will make a seven-year pact with Israel.

Revelation 13:7: He will wage war against the saints.

Revelation 13:8: He will be worshiped by all.

Revelation 13:16-17: He will require all to receive a mark.

Revelation 17:11-17: The Antichrist will betray the apostate church.

Revelation 19:19: The Antichrist will fight against Christ.

The devil has no way of knowing who will be the Antichrist until we reach the point that it is obvious that we are in the Tribulation. Until we reach the point of clarity, Satan will always have someone who has his unholy blessing. Right now, Obama would seem to be the front runner. When or if that mantle passes from him, time will only tell.

I’ve been surprised by how many end-times bloggers used the Obama election victory as an excuse to shutter their operations. I think this was an incredibly foolish move on the part of these people. The Bible warns that people like Obama will prosper in the last days. When you are running a race and people are dropping out or falling back, it is a perfect sign that the finish line is drawing near.

“Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way. For that day will not come unless the apostasy comes first and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction. He opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he sits in God’s sanctuary, publicizing that he himself is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 HCSB).

NOTE FROM LYN LEAHZ: Personally, I don’t believe Obama is the Antichrist.  I do believe he is paving the way, however.  Here’s who I’m looking at:   CLICK HERE  and HERE.

  2. I think he is who will weaken this nation to bring us to the place where we will be desperate and need salvation from a man..and that man will be the one to be the antichrist. I’m watching that new coptic pope in Egypt. I have two articles posted in the list on the side here. I think he’s going to be ‘something.’
