NOT the AntiChrist

This video, as well as the "messiah" one, has stirred a lot of controversy:

It's getting to be a really popular thing to call Obama the AntiChrist. Is he? It's doubtful for many reasons that he is actually the Antichrist. Just because Farrakhan called Obama the "Messiah" doesn't mean that THE Antichrist has come. Too many Christians just love to give each other chills talking about how 'he's HEEEEeerrrre" like a Poltergeist of some sort, because it brings attention to them and extremists always get followers because they speak as though they are so sure of what they are saying.

While many are certain that he is the Antichrist, there are several sites where one can go and find qualifications, based on REVELATION, to determine if this is true of Obama, and the result is that though he matches most of them, he does not match ALL of them (i.e. Dan 11:37 - "he does not regard the desire of women" - Obama is married to a woman). Let us remember that Jesus Christ fulfilled every single prophecy made in the Old Testament regarding His coming.

One statement I recently saw, made by a Christian and regarding Obama, said "already the spirit of the false one is here." Sounds ominous, right? But this statement is quite ignorant when considering that the "false one" has been here since the beginning of creation.

Now let us look at 1 John.
1:18 - As you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come.
5:19 - we are from God, and the whole world lies in the power of the evil one

Obama's arrival is not the arrival of evil into the world. Obama may be AN antichrist (lowercase a), but is most likely not THE Antichrist, as he does not fit every qualification.

Remember, Christians have been for centuries pointing at people and screaming "Antichrist" (consider Nero, Hitler, Mussolini, Saddam Hussein, among many others) and have always been wrong.

Hey, how come the blog owner won't approve my comments? This is censorship! I demand my rights to blog. The owner of this blog is a communist. He's a facist bullyboy.

Jeannine - yes this hype seems to be coming to an end though

Matt - I would say thanks for reading my blog, but then I wonder if you actually read it or if you just come to heckle me. Either way, your comments, heckling or not, are welcome here - it just takes a couple of days to moderate them.

Why does Daniel 11:37 bar THE Antichrist from being married? It doesn't talk about marriage, but rather that he doesn't regard the 'desire of women.' It could just as easily be talking about his stance on abortion, since it is the desire of all God honoring women to want children.

First of all, you didn't look at the evidence.

Secondly, your opinion is just that: opinion.

Thridly, clearly Obama is the antichrist, whether you want to admit it or not.

Fourthly, you obviously don't understand close we are to the end of the world.

And finally, he's gotta be the antichrist if for no other reason than that he chose a white guy to be Vice President! If that doesn't convince you, your blind.

JB says hey.
