OBAMA WATCH

Could Barack Obama be Antichrist?

In a sense, any powerful and charismatic person could be Antichrist. For that reason, people have suggested that most American Presidents in our generation might be that ruler of the predicted final one-world government.

We can not know who Antichrist will be until the Holy Spirit, the One who holds back sin, has been taken away, presumably by the Rapture. People may have suspicions about one person or another, but they can not know for sure who he will be until that time.

1 Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you, brothers, 2 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. 3 Don't let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. 4 He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God's temple, proclaiming himself to be God.

5 Don't you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things? 6 And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. 7 For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. 8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming. 9 The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders,
- 2 Thessalonians 2:1-8

There has already been a great deal of talk, even among non-Christians, that Obama is a messiah figure. Only time will tell what will come of all this speculation. It is not wrong to wonder about the possibility of any great person somehow becoming the predicted False Christ. But it is wrong to make unprovable accusations.

One day Jesus Christ's will return to take His church away before the coming "Tribulation." After the true Christian believers have been removed the identity of the one-world ruler will be confirmed and people will be forced to receive "The Mark of the Beast" in order to be permitted to buy or sell.

14 Because of the signs he was given power to do on behalf of the first beast, he deceived the inhabitants of the earth. He ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. 15 He was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that it could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. 16 He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, 17 so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name.

18 This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man's number. His number is 666.
- Rev 13:14-18

President-for-Life, King of the World paving the way for Messiahship

Nov. 28, 2012 - This post-election article from the Canada Free Press is an example of the fear and frustration of many afterPresident Obama won re-election this month. It points to some extreme examples of misplaced devotion to the president.
At Sunday’s Soul Train awards, Obama was nominated as “Our Lord and Savior” by Oscar-winning actor/comedian Jamie Foxx, who was answered by a wildly cheering throng.
Another example is a painting by artist Michael D’Antuono currently on display at Boston’s Bunker Hill Community College Art Gallery.It depicts Obama as Jesus Christ being crucified with a crown of thorns around his head and his arms outstreched.

Obama For World President?

Dec. 8 - Veteran Obama-watcher David Gutmann thinks that the President is "already getting restless in his present job, and that he seeks a promotion to an even greater status."

Congressmen are fearful that Obama will stubbornly press ahead with his unpopular plans for Health Reform, and that they will be voted out of office in 2010. Gutmann says he thinks the president is not even concerned about his own re-election, and that...

...he will enact as many of his programs in health reform, energy conservation, arms reduction and income redistribution as he can before his current term expires, and then try for higher goals.
The rest of the article gives support to this idea.

Obamamania Cools to Luke Warm

Nov. 2, 2009 - President Obama was wildly popular at his election and even more so in January with a 70 percent approval rating. Six months later Waschington DC vendors were disappointed that their Obama memorabilia were not selling well.

The President and his Congress quickly implemented controversial programs to rescue the economy: bailing out sinking US auto manufacturers and unleashing a 787-billion-dollar stimulus plan.

In late April, at the end of the first 100 days in office, Obama still enjoyed more positive reviews than his predecessors in the previous 20 years.
But since that time Americans have begun to doubt the president's ability to pull the US economy out of a nosedive. His popularity has continued to decline since that time.
July - Dipped below that of George W. Bush at the same point in his presidency.
October - Dropped to just above 50 percent according to Frank Newport, editor in chief of the Gallup Poll. Newport called this "slightly below average for all US presidents since World War II."
November - Even though the US has technically emerged from the recession, a Rasmussen poll reported that 29 percent strongly approve of Obama's performance, compared to 39 percent who strongly disapprove.

Obama Is Not the Anti-Christ
Dr. John Mark Reynolds
The Torrey Honors Institute

Aug. 13, 2009 - Dr. Reynolds alerts us to a disturbing You Tube video that claims that Barack Obama might be Antichrist. He says that traditional Christians should reject this video because it is "hateful, wrong, and illogical."
The Antichrist is a literary symbol for all that is bad about humanity and many traditional Christians think that eventually there will be one tyrant who incarnates all those evils.
Reynolds adds that calling or suggesting that someone is the Antichrist is worse than calling the person “Hitler.”

As 'New World Order' Shapes Up, Fear Is That An Anti-Christ Spirit Will Control It

Nov. 21, 2008 - Global problems, such as financial collapse, terrorism, and environmental issues are prompting a move toward global governance. Last week, the UK's Prime Minister Gordon Brown urged Barack Obama to become a "globalized" leader. He said, "We can seize the moment and in doing so build a truly global society."

Amazingly, executives from companies like Google have proposed a globalized "religion."

One can be excused for concern here too -- in that Google, Microsoft, and many other "tech" companies are less than warm toward traditional Christianity.
While some people are trying in vain to identify the PERSON who could become Antichrist, it is becoming increasingly obvious that there is a strong movement toward a global government, and that the SPIRIT of Antichrist will control it.
