Yesterday I had the History Channel on while I was working and they had a segment on the Antichrist which was first aired several years ago now. Then they interviewed Hal Lindsey, author of the popular book "Late Great Planet Earth." Everything he said about the Antichrist seemed to me to be equally attributable to President Obama.
Later mom called me up after seeing Lindsey's weekly telecast and said that in the coming weeks he would get more in to discussing claims of Obama perhaps being the Antichrist as several people had asked him about that. So it's not just me wondering.
I'm not sure how he will answer but remember that there is a political leader, the Antichrist, and a religous leader, the false prophet. The false prophet is the beast of the earth while the Antichrist is the beast of the sea. It dawns on me that America is actually "a sea" away from the Middle East. And it is probably just coincidental but you know the current Pope is the 1st German Pope and Obama if half German and the 1st President born to a Muslim? No, I'm not claiming this Pope actually is the false prophet but still it is interesting. Even more interesting when you consider that it may easily be argued that Germany's Hitler was an archetype of the Antichrist.
And many have indeed speculated that the false prophet refers to Roma, perhaps a Pope who is a defector from the true faith. And it's easy to understand such speculation.Rev 13:11 Then I saw another beast, coming out of the earth. He had two horns like a lamb, but he spoke like a dragon. 12 He exercised all the authority of the first beast on his behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed. 13 And he performed great and miraculous signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to earth in full view of men. 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 honour 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.
13:18 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.http://www.apocalipsis.org/rev-eath.htm
As I have said before I am making no claims other than consideration of the similarities and the fact that thus far I can find no disqualifying basis that our 1st post Christian era President could be the Antichrist. Just to add to the controversy consider that while we all know the saga of Obama's former church and pastor I don't believe he has actually chosen a new official church home yet.
Here is another interesting tidbit. I don't know how true any of this is, and I heard it long ago. It is thought by some that the first man may actually have been black. At some point, arguably after the tower of Bable, as man migrated across the globe the pigmentation changed over time as an adaption to the local environment, perhaps also influenced by local food sources, but that all the colors of man are derived from the black pigmentation.
Consider that if this is all generally true it would indeed be ironic if the Antichrist turned out to be a black man, sort of the devil's attempt to start over under his dominion as it were.
