As all are now aware, Barack Hussein Obama has won the Democratic nomination to run for US President, and is well on his way to winning the Presidential election on November 4th. Indeed, the media is now saying that there has not been such mass popularity for anyone running for President since JFK. Barack has a major cult following, and women have been seen fainting and weeping openly at his political rallies. It’s almost as if Obama were a rock star rather than a politician, and that he may be destined to win the upcoming election based more on his cult status than on his readiness for the task.
Now, though this in itself might not make any born-again Christian suspect a dark supernatural element to Barack Obama’s campaign touting “Change You Can Believe In,” they should have taken major notice when internationally acclaimed talk-show hostess Oprah Winfrey endorsed Obama’s bid for the presidency, and even went to one of his campaign rallies to appear on stage with him and his wife. At that time, Oprah cryptically said “He’s the One” before leaving the stage. Now, this leads me to ask; “Why - pray tell - is Obama ‘The One?’ Furthermore, just what in particular is he the one for?”
Why this should raise some questions should be crystal clear to anyone who has been paying attention to Oprah’s talk show and magazine - those perennially popular venues that unashamedly tout Oprah’s personal world view and spiritual beliefs as the “IN” way to think. You see, Oprah is not just an imminently likeable talk show hostess. She’s a spiritual icon for the New Age movement, has been called the African Mother Goddess of America, and has inspired articles such as CBN’s “The Gospel According to Oprah” and Christianity Today’s “The Church of O.”
Don’t believe me? Check out Wikipedia HERE, where it also says: “Oprah’s most significant role has become that of spiritual leader. To her audience of more than 22 million mostly female viewers, she has become a postmodern priestess -- an icon of church-free spirituality.” To this, I would add that not only is Oprah’s spirituality Church-free, it’s also Christ-free. In other words, Oprah is preaching a different Gospel than the one in the Bible - one that is totally devoid of any reference to a loving, caring Creator God, or a need for His Son as our Savior.
If the fact that a New Age priestess
is backing Obama’s campaign doesn’t make Christians stand up and take notice,
Barack’s most enduring Church affiliation should. Until very recently, Obama
and his family attended the Trinity United Church of Christ, and were close
friends with its long time pastor Jeremiah Wright, whose radical teachings
Not only that, but Obama has shown that he is not a true friend of Christianity. In fact, Obama is fully pro-abortion (as opposed to pro-choice or pro-life) and pro-ecumenical in that Obama not only supports all faiths, but he is radically opposed to allowing Christians slightly more freedom to express their faith than people of other faiths, and vehemently critical of any reference to America as a “Christian” nation.
Though this may seem like a constitutional stance, and it sounds democratic and fair on the surface, Obama’s views may cause him to be easily swayed by special interest groups who favor imposing unfair restrictions on Christians in regard to their constitutional right to freedom of speech and peaceful assembly. Indeed, there is no doubt in my mind that Oprah and her cronies would not only welcome but would encourage Obama to do so. The now all too frequent protests against Christians praying using Jesus’ name in public, or displaying manger scenes or Christmas trees are a telling case in point.
There are also many questions
about Obama’s background and beliefs that have not been answered adequately
in my mind, such as his associations with known radicals and whether or not
he feels any patriotism or love for
In addition to these problems,
Barack Hussein Obama seems unsure of whom or what to support on an
international level, as was displayed during his recent trip to
As a Messianic Christian who is
quite familiar with Bible prophecy, I believe that any nation or group of
people that attempts to divide, attack, or destroy
For those reading this who are strangers to Bible prophecy, let me tell you who Obama and Oprah remind me of in regard to the End Times. They unquestionably resemble the infamous Antichrist and the False Prophet, two secretly evil characters who will appear to be good, and will deceive many unsuspecting souls who don’t read the Bible or have a personal relationship with God and His Son. So, if that sounds like you and you’re voting for Obama, I’d think twice if I were you.
The Bible’s Book of Revelation says that the Antichrist - who is a powerful political leader - and the False Prophet - who is a powerful religious leader - will arise to power just before the Great Tribulation, which is a seven year period when God’s wrath will be poured out on sinful humanity. This time period will culminate with the Battle of Armageddon - aka World War III - and climax with the Second Coming of Christ to set up His Millennial Kingdom on Earth. Considering what a mess we sinners have made of the world lately (and at nearly every point in history), I’m really looking forward to His reign.
Now, you may wonder, do I think Barack Hussein Obama IS the Antichrist? Well, before I answer that question, I need to explain that there is going to be not one but at least two Antichrists on the world scene in its final years, and maybe one or two more. But I also believe that the FINAL Antichrist who will seize control of the world after the Rapture is a prominent leader in the European Union and the world, and that he is a bona-fide prince, just as the Bible says he is. See this article posted at my POEM web site for more on whom I think this final Antichrist is:
The Prince Who Is To Come:
In addition to him, though, there is the little antichrist - the one that Muslims call the Mahdi - and he could be anyone, as long as he thinks like a Neo-Fascist/Radical Muslim. With his Muslim father and stepfather, radical anarchist Church-going friends, associates in the Nation of Islam, his leftist political leanings, and his part-Arabic name, Barack Hussein Obama has many of the earmarks of being that prophetically little-known individual called the Mahdi. In fact, his father and stepfather were Muslims and the young Obama was schooled in a Muslim community where some unfortunate children are regularly taught that the democratic ideas of western civilizations are antagonistic to Islam and must be suppressed.
Sadly, a small
minority of children in the
Despite the dire warnings that his Christianity may be - at best - superficial, Barack Obama is very good at pretending to be Christ-like. Couple that with his wild popularity, heavy ecumenical slant, politically correct immorality, slick communication savvy, youthful attractiveness, nearly universal appeal, and heavy funding from Muslims and other special interest groups, and you’ve got many signs proclaiming that Obama could be the Mahdi, or a forerunner to him.
Even if Barack doesn’t win a ticket to the White House this time around, he no doubt will save some of the enormous sums he raised this year for his campaign to run for President again in 2012 - the year that the ancient Mayans predicted would see the end of the world as we know it. Time will certainly tell. And, even if Obama isn’t “The One” - because he all too closely resembles that really, really bad guy of the Bible called the son of perdition or his twin in evil called the Mahdi, he certainly won’t be getting my vote on Election Day.
By the way, contrary to popular belief, the United States is mentioned quite frequently in Bible Prophecy. You just need to know the Language of God to figure it out, and - as far as I can feasibly tell - I’m one of the few Bible prophecy teachers in the world today that truly seems to understand it.
2014 Postscript: Now in his
second term of office after being re-elected in 2012 under suspicions of
radically stacking the vote in his favor, Barack Hussein Obama is poised to
be the President that will lead
In August of 2013, I still did not believe that Obama was the Antichrist. But now in 2014, after having had time to do additional research, I have a more complete view of the Two Beasts of Revelation, and I believe that they depict more than one final End Time Antichrist. As such, I believe that Barack Obama is certainly one of them - partly because he is so radically opposed to godly morality. I also think that he is a forerunner to the final Antichrist that will seize control of the world after the Pre-Wrath Rapture of the True Church.
In fact, Barack Hussein Obama is
likely one of the horns of the Beast
out of the Earth, which I now believe signifies the United
States and the
United Kingdom as the economic and political leaders of the incorrectly
so-called “Free World”. This is clear because Obama is in rebellion against
the God of the Bible, and his hatred of the truth (revealed in that he has
constantly lied to the American people) has indeed worked to radically change
Nonetheless, since Obama supports sexual sins that God reviles as fornication, and he also supports abortion and Socialism, and has treated the nation of Israel unfairly, Obama is inadvertently doing God’s will by helping to firmly divide the sheep and wheat (or true followers of Yahshua) from the tares or the goats (or followers of Obama and other immoral leaders such as Muslim radicals and Communists) in America and the world - all in preparation for the return of Yahshua as the King of kings.
It is Yahshua who will come again soon from Heaven to destroy all the kingdoms of the world, and He will judge the world righteously, and will rule with a rod of iron. I look forward to that day! Maranatha!
