IS OBAMA THE ANTICHRIST?
By Rev. Ted Pike
17 Nov 09
The Bible prophesies that a Jewish world government--presided over
by Israel's false messiah, Antichrist--will be established in the
last days. Next to the first and second comings of Christ, eventual
antichrist world government and God's judgment on it, is probably
the Bible's most frequent prophetic theme.
I'm increasingly asked if I think Barak Obama could be the Antichrist.
In my new lecture/discussion series, Biblical
Answers: Reviving True Christianity, at www.truthtellers.org, I consider at length
why I do not believe he could.
Scripture makes it clear that the Antichrist is Jewish, the "wicked,
profane prince of Israel." (Ezekiel 21:25) Also called Gog, the
chief prince of Mesech and Tubal, he is a Russian. Second, Scripture
is emphatic that the Antichrist will seize control only after a period
of global peace and "tranquility" has been enforced upon
the world (Dan. 11:21). The world today is wracked with terrorism and
How could such global tranquility become reality? It's possible through
the eventual establishment of Jewish supremacy's political, economic,
financial, media, and military power over the nations - enforcing
Jewish anti-hate laws. These laws, ostensibly designed to end the hate that
creates war, are now being set up worldwide by the Anti-Defamation
League and its parent Jewish supremacist group, B'nai B'rith International.
Establishment of a globalist hate crimes gestapo is moving forward
rapidly in Europe. About five years ago, ADL/B'nai B'rith persuaded
56 European nations to join in the Organization for Security and Cooperation
in Europe, dedicated to fight all forms of bias, hate crimes, discrimination
and anti-Semitism. Last month in Warsaw, ADL issued a stern directive
to OSCE states to hasten total domination of hate laws over Europe
- in government, media, education and society ("ADL
Calls on OSCE States to Respond to Anti-Semitism and Hate," Oct.
5, 2009, www.adl.org). Every aspect of ADL's twisted hate crimes ideology
and rhetoric is being taught to these 56 member states (explained in
detail in OSCE's 77-page, 2008 report, Preventing
and Responding to Hate Crimes: A Resource Guide for NGOs in the OSCE
OSCE's report aims to facilitate ADL's dream of worldwide enforced "peace." ADL
and OSCE vow to outlaw a major root cause of strife--bias--and thus
prevent international armed conflict from ever erupting again.
Ezekiel Foresaw Coming Peace
In Ezekiel 38-9, the prophet sees Israel in the last days as a nation
of Jews regathered from the nations and living so securely no one can
oppose them. Yet this is not due to God's blessing; Israel is treacherous,
unclean, and so wicked He hides His face from her! (Ezekiel 39:23)
Israel lives "without bars or gates," without needing conventional
national defenses. Her complete safety can't possibly be maintained
by idealism or force of arms alone. Instead, mankind has been subdued
by overwhelming Jewish power, undoubtedly united with harshly punitive
international hate crimes laws, administered from Jerusalem. Such statutes
could make it a capital offense (as it was in Jewish Bolshevik Russia)
to criticize Jews - including the Jewish claim of six million Holocaust
The Talmud and Zohar, modern Judaism's highest religious authorities,
make it clear that when their Messiah (Antichrist) comes, all "idolaters" will
be destroyed--especially those who worship "the false prophet," Jesus.
This is the direction we are taken by OSCE and Obama's recently passed
hate law. The coming "son of perdition," because of his charisma,
power, and Jewish identity, will be accepted by Israel as her new spiritual
husband - in place of the true One she crucified more than 2,000 years
Thirty-five hundred years ago God (Jesus) chose Israel as His spiritual
bride among the nations. First to have spiritual relations with Him
through faith, she was first to prostitute that relationship. Many
religious systems have become spiritual harlots, but Israel is the "mother "of
that scarlet sorority. Especially after her crucifixion of Jesus, only
she is qualified to have her forehead branded "Mother of harlots
and abominations of the earth." (Rev. 17:5) Someday, having at
last found her long-sought Messiah, the Great Harlot makes a covenant
with the Antichrist and rules the world with him for three and a half
years from Jerusalem.
Antichrist Turns upon the Jews
The Antichrist, however, is assassinated, probably by jealous Jewish
leaders. He then rises from the dead in imitation of Jesus and turns
with terrible fury upon the Jews. Gathering his confederate nations,
the Antichrist, who is called "Gog," comes against Israel
and his armies cover the land (Ezekiel 38, 39). Fulfilling Daniel's
prophecy, "he will destroy many while they are at ease" (Daniel
8:25), he encircles and ravages Jerusalem, killing two-thirds of Jews
within the city. He then desecrates the Jewish temple (the Abomination
of Desolation) and sits in the temple declaring himself to be God.
Surviving Jews are once again exiled to the nations (Ezekiel 39:23,
28). This fulfills God's timeless, oft-repeated law that a nation of
rebellious, Christ-rejecting Jews cannot long endure in a land dedicated
to holiness. The entire world, insane with fury at what Israel did
to enslave mankind, attempts to destroy every last Jew from planet
Earth. For most of three and a half years, a Jewish remnant, pursued
to every corner of the earth, will face imminent extinction. Finally,
at a moment known only to God, Jesus Christ returns, like lightning
shining from one end of the heavens to the other. The remnant at last
believes upon Him whom their fathers crucified. Christ leads them back
to Palestine to occupy His holy land with Him for a thousand years
-- the only divinely approved national occupation of Palestine for
at least two millennia.
Obama does share a number of antichrist characteristics. Yet, Antichrist,
when he comes, will be like a great mountain filling the earth, crushing
all resistance and eliciting the worship of all mankind. The world
is not yet degenerate enough to worship Satan incarnate who will sit
in a rebuilt Jewish temple in Jerusalem, proclaiming himself God.
Where are we in this prophetic timeline?
We are in the foothills of Antichrist, while Obama, his prophet, prepares
the way before him.
Let the Anti-Defamation League teach you how they have saddled 45 states
with hate laws capable of persecuting Christians, and spearhead attempts to pass
the federal hate crimes bill: http://www.adl.org/99hatecrime/intro.asp.
