Is President Obama the Antichrist?

I’ll never forget a student coming up to me with his cell phone and keying in Obama’s name on the number pad. O =6; b = 2; a = 2; m = 6; a = 2. Add the three twos together and you get 6. The total is 666. This student was absolutely full of energy when they told me that Obama was the Antichrist. This happened a few years ago when Obama was in his first year of office, and since then I have noticed that many within the Christian community think that President Barack Obama is the Antichrist.

Obama is powerful, has given the world hope, and is fighting tooth-and-nail against Biblical Christianity. He is a great speaker and everyone (almost) seems to love him. Since these are all traits that the Antichrist will have, then surely (many think) Obama is the Antichrist. To add to all of this, the Obama Administration is trying to pass into law a RFID chip that will be implanted into every person. This is clearly the Mark of the Beast according to many. Thus, Obama has to be the Antichrist.

There are many reasons why Obama is not the Antichrist. First off, we must understand just because someone has some of the characteristics of the Antichrist does not mean that particular person is the Antichrist. Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, and Hirohito (the emperor of Japan during World War II) had many of those same traits; as did many other rulers throughout history.

Second, when we study the Bible in context, it is clear that the Antichrist will come from the Middle East, not the United States (neither will he come from Europe). Daniel 2 and 7 (the two major passages) clearly teach that the Antichrist will come from an empire that conquers the ancient kingdoms of Babylon, Persia, and Greece. The most common interpretation is that Rome fulfills this prophecy, but Rome never conquered Persia and most of the Greek Empire. The only empire in history that accomplished this was the Islamic Empire (a Middle Eastern Kingdom).

Other chapters in the Bible also teach about the Middle Eastern origins of the Antichrist. Daniel 8 and 11 indicate that the Antichrist will come from the lands once ruled by the Seleucid Empire that ruled most of the Middle East. Ezekiel 38-39 teaches that the Antichrist will come from the land of Magog, and will be the ruler of Meshech and Tubal. All three of these nations are in the present-day country of Turkey, not America (or Europe). (Click here for a good overview of the arguments in favor of a Middle Eastern Antichrist.)

It seems that every generation thinks that the Antichrist has been found. Some people who didn’t like George W. Bush thought he was the Antichrist. There are even some people who think that Prince Harry is the coming dictator of the world (type both of these names into a search engine with “antichrist” and you will be amazed at what you will find). Christians must remember that the Bible teaches that there are many antichrists and false prophets (1 John 2:18-27; Matthew 24:11). The man who will be the Antichrist will fulfill all the prophecies that the Bible gives about the man who will be defeated by the coming of Jesus Christ.

  1. Joshua Laughlin says:

    America IS in the bible, revelation in fact.
    Revelation 18: Lament over Fallen Babylon

    ‘Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great!’
    She has become a dwelling for demons
    and a haunt for every impure spirit,
    a haunt for every unclean bird,
    a haunt for every unclean and detestable animal.
    For all the nations have drunk
    the maddening wine of her adulteries.
    The kings of the earth committed adultery with her,
    and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.’

    Taking this information, remember what this man has done. He openly mocked the bible for its old school teachings prior to election – blasphemy. But then went on to sign the topmost beam in the 1 world freedom tower:

    We Remember
    We Rebuild
    We Come Back Stronger

    666
    VVV
    WWW

    .and outside the tower of babylon 3 years later, did quote psalms 46 using the freemason/satanic King James Bible:

    ..Be still, and know that I am God;
    I will be exalted among the nations,
    I will be exalted in the earth.

    The LORD OF HOSTS (Satan) is with us;
    the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah

    ..in the New International Version that verse reads:

    The LORD ALMIGHTY (God) is with us;
    the God of Jacob is our fortress.

    ..the same people who interpreted the prophecy are now ready to make it come true, and they will put the signs right in front of you to watch you deny the truth.

    White Horse of the Apocalypse

    ..why would a senator from illinois who was born in ‘hawaii’ give his acceptance speech in DENVER, somewhat known for its bizarre apocalyptic imagery.

    Red Horse of the Apocalypse

    ..Watch the light intensify as it forms..strange

    THIS is where we are, the black horse comes next, making food expensive..but not the ‘oil’ and ‘wine’ – but I think this one may come simultaneously with the pale horse, which kills 1/4 of the Earth’s Population..explaining the price jump. So if you do believe, the time to be ready is NOW.

  2. Thank you for reading my article, and thanks for commenting. After reading through your post and thinking about it, I will say, with respect, that I disagree with your comments. I do not believe that Obama is the Antichrist. You mentioned that he is a blasphemer and that he signed a beam in the world freedom tower. I do not understand why this makes him the Antichrist. There have been many world leaders who have been blasphemers, but that doesn’t make them the Antichrist. I have written a 10-part series detailing from Scripture why I believe the Antichrist will come from the Middle East, not America. Before commenting further, I suggest that you read this series first.

    You mentioned that America is in the Bible and you quote Revelation 18. I personally disagree. I will be writing an article over Revelation 17 and 18 in the near future, so I can go in-depth then. But for now I will give you, in short, what I think Revelation 18 means. Revelation 17:18 says that the woman who rides the beast is the great city that rules over the kings of the earth. Verse 5 says that she is called Babylon, which chapter 18 goes into detail about the fall of Babylon. It is my belief that the woman who rides the beast, that is, Babylon the Great, symbolizes idolatry and paganism.

    Many think that the woman is the Roman Catholic Church, a false church, America, or even the city of Babylon. However, 17:9 says that the woman sits on the seven heads of the beast. The seven heads are seven different empires throughout history (I go over this in more depth in my article “An Islamic Antichrist? – Part 2”). The Roman Catholic Church, or any church, and even America did not exist during the period of these seven kingdoms (Assyria, Persia, Greece, etc.). This means that the Babylon in chapter 18 cannot be the United States of America.

    You also uploaded a video showing what seems to be a red horse coming off of the sun. I do not believe that this is a fulfillment of the Revelation 6:3-4 where John sees a rider on a red horse. You also attached a picture of Obama under a white horse. You seem to be convinced that the riders on the white and red horses have been fulfilled. I will have to disagree with you. The white horse is the Antichrist. But it has not been fulfilled yet. The Antichrist will bring peace with Israel (Daniel 9:27). Notice that Revelation 6:2 says that the rider on the white horse is given a bow but no arrows. This is a false peace (see Daniel 8:23-25), and the Antichrist will use this peace to wage a surprise attack against his enemies. This is what the red horse symbolizes: war! We go from a white horse (peace) to a red horse (war). This fits perfect from what we know about the Antichrist from other Bible passages (see my series on the Antichrist for more). The riders on the white and red horses are not fulfilled until the tribulation, not before or in the manner that you describe.

    Lastly, you mention that there will be signs in the sun, moon, and stars. This will take place during the tribulation, not before, where we are now.
    Thanks for your comments. Hope to hear from you again.

  3. First I will say that Obama is from the Middle East. He went to an Muslim school. So 90% of your argument is totally moot.

    Secondly, Baraq O’bamaw means, “Lightning from the Heavens” in Jesus’ tongue Aramaic. In Luke 10:18 this was Satan falling from heaven when he was cast out after Michael and the angels defeated him in heaven. Scholars never could have realized til now that “Lightning from the Heavens” was Satan’s name.

    His campaign slogan is “Yes we can…” which has a strong subliminal power over people. Backwards, this comes out as “Thank you Satan,” and this form of manipulation is prove in modern Psychology where the brain fills in the blanks. For example of how the brains pieces audio and visual cues together:
    Arocdnicg to rsceearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn’t mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer are in the rghit pcale. The rset can be a toatl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit pobelrm. Tihs is buseace the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe.
    Obama’s speech uses similar manipulation.

    90% of the world follows Obama desperately.
    Pope Frances is the false Prophet and Chrislam is the Apostasy. The mixing of Islam and Christianity has already been completed. There are bibles being distributed everywhere that deny God as the Father and Christ as the Son of God, stating that Allah is god and his prophet Muhommad is above Jesus. The 91 times where the New Testament proclaims Jesus as God have all been removed and replaced with Allah is god.
    Pope Frances was the prophesied 112th pope that is “the defector from the faith.” Pope Frances already made Chrislam and extended Olive Branch to the Muslims! TRAVESTY.

    The Antichrist will bring the world into a time of peace and then destroy. Nearly all the time Obama has been out of America he was peace talking to all of Israel’s enemies, which will force Israel to talk peace. He is then prophesied to sign a peace treaty for 7 years adn destroy Israel almost immediately after signing the treaty. This is a typical Muslim tactic: Besiege the enemy. Do all it takes to conquer them. Make peace, then attack when their guards are down!

    WW3 is due before 2014, most likely even before Christmas 2013. Russia, China, North Korea and Iran have all nuclear capabilities and have declared war on us. Russia, who is playing things a little smarter, stated bluntly that unless the U.S. gives the Missle Defense Technology to everyone, that Russia will nuclear bomb us.

    Obama’s entire campaign is about PEACE and Socialism. He is intentionally causing the U.S. budget to fall and force us to join the One-World Order he is already fashioning.

    And by the way, the Mark of the Beast chip has been invented. It has cyanide release capabilities and bonds to human flesh. Scientists merged human DNA with microchips, allowing for the first ever true CYBORG technology. With this chip, brain waves and thought patterns can be monitored and manipulated. This is wild but it’s real. For 20 years+ we’ve have brain controlled computers, so I suppose this is not too far of a leap ahead.

    The end is here. In a few months, all people with Disability, welfare and Foodstamp benefits will be required to take the RFID chip in their hands regardless of whether Obama is the antichrist.

    Check out this video of Worldwide Catastrophes. It is very scary. People do not realize that the world is falling apart just like in Bible prophecy.

    God bless.

  4. Thanks for commenting. Sorry for taking a couple of days getting back to you, I’ve been busy. Let me get right into it. You mention that Obama is from the Middle East since he went to a Muslim school. Obama’s ancestry (on his father’s side) is Kenyan. Obama went to a Muslim school in Indonesia, which is in Southeast Asia. Your point that my argument is moot makes no sense because someone does not have to be from the Middle East just because they went to a Muslim school.

    Many of your comments (Pope Francis, the mark of the beast, Obama’s slogan, Obama wanting peace, world catastrophes, etc.) have nothing to do with proving that Obama is the Antichrist. Also, Obama is not the only man who has tried to bring peace between Israel and the Arabs. Clinton, Bush, and others have tried as well. That didn’t make them the Antichrist.

    Now let me move on to your comment on the meaning of Obama’s name. All of that sounds interesting, but I can’t help but compare it to those who have tried to identify the name of the Antichrist by using the number 666. They do this by trying to use gematria, which is the practice of using numbers to represent words and names. Some think that 666 was the numerical equation of the emperor Nero, Hitler, and others. In fact, mixing gematria and the number 666 can yield many different results. The same can be said for your use of Obama’s name. Click here (see link below) for an excellent explanation for why your equation of Jesus’ words and Obama’s name is false (please note that by linking to that particular web page does not mean that I agree with everything that the site teaches; I just like the explanation it gives for the current topic).

    For some reason the link that I gave you does not want to work. Here it is. http://www.therefinersfire.org/obama_antichrist.htm

  6. Hey .. hope you don’t mind me butting in … kyle, you are correct he is the antichrist but, imho, your argument is incomplete, let me add some things for you to consider.
    first off,, there is NO 7 year peace treaty with Israel. It clearly says “a covenant with many”
    The Final 70 years were confirmed to have started in 1947 at the order to restore Jerusalem (not 1948 as many count from, it clearly says “when the order is given”). By the exact number of years, 62, it was confirmed that the Covenant with Many would be signed in 2009. 1947 + 62 = 2009. By the exact number of days, 1260, the Covenant with Many was confirmed as the Nobel Peace Prize given to Barack Obama.
    October 9, 2009 to March 22, 2013 is exactly 1260 days, 3.5 years, Midweek on the final 7 years. this is when the Abomination took place when obama entered Jerusalem on his Party’s “Donkey”, via the same entrance side as Christ’s triumphant entry, he then visited Bethlehem which IS Christ’s birth place, he defiled the place where Christ’s Temple was born by standing at the Manger site which IS the correct spot.
    The Abomination of Desolation was fulfilled on March 22, 2013, the Antichrist has been revealed, and the Sealed Book of Daniel has been Opened.
    It’s really NOT that difficult to work out – the EXACT dates line up. there is no mystery, the confusion is born out of mistranslations rife in the christian community (as intended).
    He is able to fulfill the prophecy openly whilst hiding it from the many – this is part of his character.
    The transference of power took place when he visited Berlin in his pre-election campaign and spoke to the masses which was beamed live throughout the world – screens were erected in many countries and thousands gathered to hear him speak, facing West with his back to the East (Russia) at the foot of the Victoria statue where Hitler spoke from and the forces of darkness gathered. He then transferred the power from “satan’s throne” which was dismantled brick by brick by the Germans in turkey and rebuilt in the Berlin museum – Obama built an exact replica at the Bronco Stadium in Denver for his acceptance speech and so transferred the power to the US
    Once the Bride has left with the Groom to be hidden in the wedding chamber of the Father’s House, which will happen during the comet ISON visit (I SON COMETh) which is the Sign of the Son of Man (same as the sign at his birht – a light in the heavens) .. this may happen on 29th Nov when it reaches perihelion or on 3rd November during the rare Hybrid eclipse (3rd since Christ) as they both appear on the same day .. this leads up to the rare blood moon Tetrad in 2014 which spells trouble for Israel – the Tribulation will begin as soon as the comforter and the Bride are gathered. It has been revelaed to many people that ISON is the sign of the Son of Man … be ready!
    The 2nd Coming of Jesus Christ has been shown by the exact number of days, 1290 days from March 22, 2013 to October 3, 2016, the first day of Rosh Hoshanna, the Feast of Trumpets.
    “No man knows the day or the hour” – true but this is a direct reference to the Feast of Trumpets during rosh Hashsannah when the ‘Last Trump’ the Tekiah is blown only when the new moon is sighted over Jerusalem which can be on either of 1-3 days – it is the 100th blast and is known as ‘the last trump’ and is what Paul is referring to (he knew nothing about the trumpets of revelation)
    Obamacare IS the mark of the Beast ,, the number is in his name and many other things that he’s involved in -
    ob6m6c6are aaa = 666 (turn them over/reverse) … I have 100 other details but Im rushing so Ive prob missed out lots of things. The Sign of Jonah was fulfilled on 16-19th Oct 2013 when the moon(Jonah) was in Pisces (the fish) for 3 days before entering the ram Aries this was exactly 40 days before ISON reaches perihelion on the 28th Nov (which is also Hanukkah – the world was thereby given 40 days warning.
    all the signs are in the heavens RIGHT NOW but people are missing them. this is deliberate. truth is hidden. chemtrails are not about chemicals (that’s just a distraction and a bonus for them – they get to poiso us whilst hiding the skies) … a blanket is being put over the world so that it misses the star in the sky I the Son >> the Sign of the Son of Man.
    It is the torch/lamp lit procession of the groom who comes for his bride through the night (as is how it happens in Jewish weddings – the groom comes for the Bride through the night with a torch/lamp so she can see him coming for her from her her home – he then takes her to the Wedding Ceremony at his father’s house where the guests are waiting – sound familiar ?????) it all fits in!

    Hope this helps! Be ready! only 50% of the virgins leave with him!

  7. Tim C says:

    It’s important for believers to understand that Antichrist “takes his seat in the temple of God”
    As such, he was, is and will be amidst the people of God.
    He stands in place of Christ, speaks as though he spoke for God, usurps God’s sovereignty ; to the world he looks like Christ.
    He is a Pseudo Christ.
    IN keeping with the scripture “satan comes as an angel of light”

    And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.

    Antichrist appears for all intents and purposes as “ministers of righteousness – seated in the temple of God”

    One might ask then, where is the temple that we might see this usurper?

    Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body. 1 Cor 6:19
