Once Israel became a nation again in May, 1948, genuine Bible-believing Christians the world over began to expect that Antichrist would be the next major event on the world scene. After all, in Matthew 24, Jesus presented the most important prophetic dissertation in the entire Bible as to how the End of the Age would unfold for the Jews specifically and for the world insofar as the world shares this planet with Israel. In other words, some of the prophecies in Matthew 24 are meant for the Jews of the Tribulation Period only.
In Matthew 24, Jesus is asked by His disciples what was THE one single event which would foretell His second coming. Jesus gave them many more than just ONE single prophetic event. Let us pick examine this passage:
Matthew 24 -- Synopsis -- Jesus' disciples had just pointed out to Him the beauty and magnificence of the wonderful Temple Herod was re-building, when Jesus turned around and uttered a most horrible prophecy: "See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down."
Jesus' disciples panicked, because they equated the destruction of the Temple with the destruction of the nation, Israel, and further equated both destructions with the End of the Age. [They were not wrong, as events would quickly demonstrate, as both the Temple and Israel were destroyed in A.D. 70.] As soon as the group reached the Mount of Olives, where they could talk to Jesus privately, they asked Him, "Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?" Notice they asked Jesus for THE sign, one sign, but He was going to give them much more than they asked [Isn't that just like Jesus?]
When we properly understand the import of the signs by which we can know the End of the Age is approaching, we will be much better prepared when the events begin to break over our heads. However, before we review these signs, we need to understand the context into which Jesus placed these signs. This context is found in verse 8: "All these are the beginning of sorrows." This word, "sorrows" has a special meaning in the original Greek. This word is Strong's Number, 'G5604', which really means the "pangs of childbirth". The Amplified Bible Commentary renders the verse correctly and with proper emphasis: "All this is but the beginning [the early pains] of the birth pangs [of the intolerable anguish]."
So, the beginning of these multiple signs heralds the beginning of a birth process; someone or some thing is to be born on to the world scene; he is to appear! But, whom? We get this answer in verse 15, when Jesus is suddenly speaking of the prophecy in Daniel 9:27, 11:31, and 12:11. This prophecy states that the Antichrist will walk into Holy of Holies in the Temple at the mid-point of the 7-year Tribulation Period for the express purpose of desolating it, and causing extreme offense to God. Daniel calls this act the "abomination that makes desolate"; scholars have called it "The Abomination of Desolation".
Therefore, the "baby" to be "born" is the Antichrist. But, wait, there is another "baby" born in these verses! When Jesus suddenly starts talking of the Antichrist committing the Abomination of Desolation in the Holy of Holies in the Temple, all sorts of red lights should begin flashing, but thanks to the terrible teaching of traditional Bible teachers, these red lights are nowhere to be found. In Matthew 24:1-2, Jesus foretells the destruction of the Temple Herod was rebuilding; in verse 3, the disciples correctly understand that the destruction of the Temple heralds the destruction of the nation, Israel. Indeed, both destructions were carried out in 70 A.D.
Yet, Jesus is suddenly speaking of Antichrist desecrating the Holy of Holies! Therefore, the nation, Israel, must have been reborn by this time, and the Third Temple rebuilt; otherwise, Antichrist would not be able to offend God by desecrating the Holy of Holies inside the Temple! We have another "baby" being born here -- Israel! And, sometime before Antichrist goes into the Holy of Holies at Day 1,260 of the Tribulation Period, the Temple has to have been rebuilt.
THEREFORE: the signs, the "birth pangs" Jesus listed in Matthew 24 will give birth to two babies: the nation of Israel and Antichrist. Let us examine these birth pangs, and then we shall see how the baby of Israel was born exactly in accordance with these signs, these birth pangs.
Jesus listed the following birth pangs as the multiple signs by which believers would know the End of the Age is close.
Unparalleled Spiritual Deception [vs 4]; this spiritual deception is so pervasive, and of such great concern that Jesus reiterated the warning twice more in this chapter, verses 11 and 24. Certainly, we are faced with just such spiritual deception today, as ministries thought to be Fundamental and right on target, are suddenly seen shifting to support Liberal or even New World Order causes. In this day, Christians must have their eyes on Scripture -- acting as the Noble Bereans -- and not just on a man or his organization. We must diligently compare everything said and done against Scripture, remembering that organizations and men have suddenly turned bad after years of seeming to be right on target. As Jesus warned, "He who endures to the end shall be saved". [Matthew 10:22]
False Messiah Figures [vs 5]; the 20th Century has seen the appearance of so many Messiah-type figures as to stagger the imagination.
Wars and Rumors of Wars [vs 6]; Nation Rising Against Nation, and Kingdom against Kingdom -- this is an idiomatic phrase which defines a conflict started between two local combatants but quickly joined on both sides by allies, thus making the war much larger [vs 7]; after the attacks of 9/11, governments throughout the world have continuously threatened war against nations in the world, most specifically Iran and North Korea. Nations like Afghanistan and Iraq have been militarily invaded. "Wars and Rumors of Wars" is the order of the day.
Famines and earthquakes occurring all over the globe -- once again, this is an idiomatic phrase meaning that famines and earthquakes will occur simultaneously in different parts of the globe [vs 7]. Note that this prophecy does NOT state that earthquakes will be increasing, but only that they will be occurring at different spots on the globe, sometimes simultaneously.
Re-Birth of Nation of Israel In 1948 Fulfilled These Birth Pangs Exactly
When one examines the process of the birth of Israel from the first Zionist Congress in 1897 to its birth in 1948, you can easily see how this birth fulfilled the Birth Pangs prophecy, above. Let us take a cursory examination of the historic record.
Let us begin by discussing the unprecedented historical miracle of Israel's rebirth. God began to throw the Jews out of their nation with the invasion of King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon in 602 B.C. The Jews never really governed themselves as an independent state from that time forward, even though the Greeks and the Romans allowed Israel limited self-government. However, Rome's patience for the Jews was put to the test continually by their repeated rebellion. Roman patience was finally exhausted in A.D. 66, when the Jews rose in unprecedented revolt. At first, the Jewish army took over part of Palestine, including Jerusalem. Rome's military response was also unprecedented, as it sent an immense force against Jerusalem. Their siege lasted for over three years. In A.D. 70, the Roman Army finally conquered Jerusalem. Roman leadership was determined to finally rid themselves of the perennially rebellious Jewish nation. Therefore, they slaughtered untold numbers of people and began to systematically force the Jews out of Israel and into the nations which surrounded her. In doing so, they fulfilled God's many warnings that He would punish Israel in just this way if they continued to sin against His commandments.
Historical fact records that Israel was out of her land for the next 1,900 years. Her Biblical land was controlled by a succession of Gentile powers during that long period of time. At this point, Israel should never have been expected to gain her land back, because no people who had ever been out their land for several hundred years had ever regained it. But, Bible scholars who read the Bible literally consistently insisted, on the authority of God's Word, that Israel would be restored back to her land. In fact, there were scholars who maintained that the countdown to the End of the Age could not actually begin until National Israel was reestablished.
And, against all historic odds, Israel was reborn in one day in May, 1948. Since then, she has fought several wars for her survival, against incredible odds. The rebirth of Israel in 1948 was truly an historically unprecedented miracle of God, accomplished against all historic odds.
But, we should not have been surprised, because God foretold in many places in both the Old and New Testaments that He would tear Israel out her land if she refused to obey His commandments. But, then God would repeatedly turn around and promise national restoration.
Now let us quickly examine how the historic way in which Israel was restored to her land fulfills this prophecy of Matthew 24 precisely.
When the first Zionist Conference was held in 1897, in Basel, Switzerland, for the express purpose of beginning an organized and concerted effort to return significant Jews back to Israel, the prospects seemed bleak, indeed. The entire region was tightly controlled by the Turkish Ottoman Empire, whose rulers would most definitely not look with kindness on the return of Jews to their homeland, and to the restoration of the nation of Israel. Nevertheless, the Jewish delegates to this conference felt a unique heavy hand upon them, propelling them forward. This conference ended with a commitment of influential and wealthy Jews to begin funding a return of individual Jews back to their Promised Land. And return they did, in the hundreds at first and then by the thousands, and then by the tens of thousands.
UNPARALLELED SPIRITUAL DECEPTION -- Matthew 24:4
From the beginning, the quiet, invisible spiritual direction leading Israel back to her land was NOT traditional Judaism, and it certainly was not Christian; rather, the spiritual leadership was Illuminist! The Rothschild family took early leadership in this crucial struggle, and provided the immense funding necessary for Jewish immigrants to buy land back from the Arabs once they settled in Israel. No Jewish settler ever understand this fact; they were totally deceived.
WAR AND RUMORS OF WAR
In the first decade of the 1900's, storm clouds were forming on the European horizon, as ethnic groups all throughout Europe and Eastern Europe begin to make demands that would soon culminate in World War I. The causes of World War I were several: the continuing instability of the Balkan Peninsular region (Austrian annexation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, 1908); Balkan Wars (1912-13); and the gradual collapse of the Ottoman Empire. As much promise as the collapse of the Ottoman Empire created throughout Europe and the Middle East, it also weakened the Turkish control over the region, allowing the planned Jewish influx to continue and to flourish.
As the storm clouds grew, so did the pressure upon the Jews living in Europe, and thousands began to flee persecution, seemingly being driven to the Promised Land. Even though many Arabs living there complained and even carried out some physical reprisals, the fact is that when the Jews arrived, they came with enough money from wealthy Jews in Britain, America and Europe, so they could began to buy back the Holy Land, parcel by parcel.
NATION RISING UP AGAINST NATION AND KINGDOM AGAINST KINGDOM
Remember our discussion, above, of this idiomatic phrase the Lord used? This phrase literally describes a war in which the fighting is begun by two smaller nations, but where each side is quickly reinforced by allies, thus resulting in a far wider, and more devastating war. This is exactly how World War I began! The spark that touched off WW I was the assassination of Austrian Archduke Ferdinand by a Serbian nationalist in 1914. The war quickly spread to many different fronts and eventually involved all the major Western powers. Quickly, the war formalized between the Allies (France, Britain, Russia, Italy, US) and the Central Powers (Germany, Austro-Hungarian Empire, Ottoman Empire). The war was concluded in November 11, 1918, at 11:00 a.m. [note the occult practice of grouping together important numbers, in this case the most important number, '11', three times? World War I ended on the 11th month of the year, the 11th day of the month, and the 11th hour of the day. This historic fact firmly places the occult stamp of the Illuminati on this war]. Albert Pike would have been pleased, for the First World War had occurred just as his demonic vision of 1870 had foreseen [Read NEWS1056 for full details].
The aftermath of this war was huge. Over 30 million people died during the fighting, and millions more died from famine and various illnesses both during the fighting and afterward. Much of Europe was in ruins, the Czarist Government of Russia fell in 1917, and was replaced from the Illuminist Government from Hell, Communism.
But, most importantly, Britain felt that it was uniquely aided by a Jewish British citizen, the brilliant chemist and Zionist leader, Chaim Weizmann, for his help in the war effort when he developed a process to synthesize acetone, an ingredient necessary for producing the explosives that were in extremely short supply. Further, Britain wanted to establish a Jewish nation in the Middle East, as a method of keeping the Ottoman Empire at arms length; plus, she felt that a declaration of support for the Zionist cause would bring America into World War I.
Therefore, the British cabinet issued the famous Balfour Declaration. Arthur James Balfour, Foreign Secretary in the British government, communicated the following memo to Lord Rothschild, head of the Zionist Federation in Great Britain, on November 2, 1917:
"I have the pleasure in conveying to you, on behalf of His Majesty's Government, the following declaration of sympathy with the Jewish Zionist aspirations which have been submitted to, and approved by, the Cabinet. His Majesty's Government views with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use our best endeavors to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country."
I find it highly interesting that Rothschild received this memorandum, because his family has been the greatest supporter of the coming New World Order of Antichrist since 1793! Further, you can easily see how clearly Illuminist the funding of the Zionist effort was, beginning in 1897. The Illuminati was literally buying Israel back from the Arabs, parcel by parcel. Worldwide Jewry funding for this project was enormous.
The Balfour Declaration, and was the first major step toward establishing Israel as a nation. For the first time in the past 2,000 years, a major nation committed itself to the re-birth of Israel.
SECOND WORLD WAR
World War II was the ultimate war that produced the nation of Israel. An Illuminist leader, Adolf Hitler, arose in Germany, promising to end the humiliation suffered at the hands of the Allies, and to restore German might and influence. Hitler also published a book entitled, Mein Kampf, "My Struggle", in which he promised to annihilate all Jews throughout the world, and to engulf all Europe in the war needed to establish the Greater Germany he felt he needed to establish the perfect Aryan race.
From the beginning of his government, Hitler set out to draw up precise plans to eradicate the Jews. We call this effort the Holocaust. From 1933-1938, Hitler began to issue various degrees and laws that systematically set the Jew up for persecution, even stripping them of their German citizenship in 1935. But, the Holocaust officially began on November 9-10, 1938, during a night called Kristallnacht, during which virtually all synagogues in Germany were destroyed. Soon after, the Nazis began confiscating property owned by Jews and imprisoning Jews in concentration camps. After the outbreak of World War II on September 1, 1939, Hitler began the official extermination program, an effort that ended only in May, 1945, when the Allies liberated the last of the death camps. I have often found it interesting that Hitler's Holocaust lasted almost 7 years [2,376 days] 11/9/38 to 5/6/45; the true Antichrist will deal with Israel for exactly 7 Jewish years [2,530 days].
Jewish immigration to their Promised Land increased heavily during World War II, as Jews sought to flee Hitler. However, both American and British governments set up such formidable roadblocks to immigration that they kept the numbers lower than they would have been. After the war ended, the influx of Jews into Israel became a flood.
ISRAEL REBORN IN ONE SINGLE DAY
The horror in Western countries over the Holocaust set in motion a chain of events in which the United States, now under the leadership of President Truman, firmly backed the re-birth of Israel. This re-birthing took place under the auspices of the United Nations, thus demonstrating once again the Illuminist backing for this national restoration. On May 14, 1948, Israel became a nation once again; after 1,900 years of not having a state, she came back to life again in a "single day", as prophesied [Zechariah 3:9].
The Second World War resulted in widespread destruction and suffering at the cost of many millions of lives. In addition, millions of others (notably Jews and Poles) died in Nazi death camps. Famines and illnesses swept the world as a result of this war; while not as many people died of these causes as in World War I, the death toll was still staggering. Earthquakes also began a steady rise in both numbers and intensity, in each decade, from the 1920-1940's.
Thus, you can see that the first baby to be born, the nation of Israel, was born with exactly these type of birth pangs -- spiritual deception, wars, rumors of wars, famines, earthquakes. God is true to His Word! Not only was Israel born again as a nation, but she was brought back in unbelief, just as God foretold in Ezekiel 37:8d, "there was not spirit or breath ...". God prophesied Israel would come back in unbelief, in either Him or His Son, Jesus. One of the major goals of the Tribulation Period is to produce a nation that believes in Jesus by the time He returns at the Slaughter of Armageddon. A major part of producing this Christian nation is to allow Antichrist to kill two-thirds of the Jews [all unbelieving, Zechariah 13:8], while God protects the one-third believing remnant [Revelation 12:13-17]. This conversion of one-third of the Jewish population will not begin until after the Rapture of the Christian Church, the work of the 144,00 Jewish evangelists [Revelation 7:2-8], and the testimony of the two Witnesses who will be standing in front of the Temple Mount for the first 1,260 days of the Tribulation Period, faithfully proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
But, when Jesus returns, he finds an Israel in which the only people still living are the protected Christian remnant. Thus, the Apostle Paul could confidently say, "And so all Israel shall be saved .." [Romans 11:26] Jesus will find, as He returns, fulfillment of the prophecy in Zechariah 12:10b, "They shall look earnestly upon Me Whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him ..." [Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary].
Now, we get to the subject of this day, i.e, the appearance of Antichrist. Notice that his appearance is presented as a uniquely Jewish event.
The Birth of the Antichrist "Baby"
Now, let us examine the birth of the next "baby" of Matthew 24, the Antichrist. Jesus suddenly begins speaking, in verse 15, of the Antichrist going into the Temple -- obviously the rebuilt Third Temple -- and desecrating it so thoroughly that he creates the "Abomination That Makes Desolate". God is so angry after this blasphemous act, and speech within the Holy of Holies that He begins to pour out His wrath anew and with greater intensity. This abomination will occur at the half-way point of the 7-year Tribulation Period, Day number 1,260.
For some reason, Jesus Christ skips over the appearance of Antichrist in Matthew 24. However, He tells us about the appearance of this Man of Sin in Revelation 6:1-2. "And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer."
This is the moment of the "birth" of the Antichrist baby in Matthew 24. Therefore, his "birth", his appearance will be preceded by an intensification of the Birth Pangs in Matthew 24:6-7. In the time period immediately preceding his appearance, the world is going to experience all these foretold birth pangs in its strongest possible intensity! Therefore, we should expect:
Wars and rumors of wars -- to the highest degree possible.
Nation Arising Against Nation, Kingdom Against Kingdom -- once again, this idiomatic phrase indicates a war beginning between two local powers, in which other powers jump in, supporting the original two combatants, so that a much larger conflict instantly breaks forth! In this case, we see the New World Order Plan to start a war between Israel and the Palestinians [House of Esau, Obadiah 15-18], in which both sides will receive allies, resulting in World War III. The Illuminati has been planning a World War III since 1870 [Read NEWS1056 and NEWS1057 for full details]. Literally, out of the smoke, destruction, and death caused by this Third World War, Antichrist will come striding, displaying enormously effective "lying signs and wonders".
Since 9/11, Illuminist nations have been invading other nations with regularity and threaten many others with regularity.
Famines will occur as the result of this war, probably in Third World countries. Much of the famine may be the result of this coming Third World War.
Earthquakes can now be created by HAARP and Scalar electromagnetic technology [Read NEWS1196, NEWS1197, NEWS1198, NEWS1199, NEWS1201, NEWS1206, and NEWS1207 for full details on the current capabilities of Weather Warfare. Both America and Russia have these capabilities].
Is Senator Barack Obama the "Messiah" - or at least a Messiah figure?
Is Barack Obama THE Biblical Antichrist? He certainly has run a Messianic type campaign, with numerous people noting a certain unexplainable charisma emanating from the Illinois Senator, a spiritual type of feeling which they cannot explain, even though they are dramatically drawn to it.
That question is popping up with a lot more regularity these days, and seems to tie in with the occult theme which Cutting Edge has already noted.
NEWS BRIEF: "Is Barack Obama The Messiah?", by Ben Shapiro, Town Hall, January 31, 2007
"Apparently, Senator Barack Hussein Obama, D-Illinois, is the Messiah ... Jesus didn't get this kind of Sunday media coverage on Easter Sunday. It is no wonder Slate.com has a running Obama 'Messiah Watch' dedicated to 'considering evidence that Obama is the Son of God'."
Now, this is the kind of rhetoric which should cause Bible-believing Christians to sit up and take notice, at this End of the Age. Jesus firmly warned us to expect "false Christs" (false political leaders) and "false prophets" (false religious leaders) at the End of the Age. Listen:
"Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many." (Matt 24:4-5)
"For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect." (Matt 24:24)
Barack Obama is causing many people to want to follow him, simply because he is exuding some sort of mysterious power which draws them to the man!
On the website, "Is Barack Obama the Messiah?", we read some startling statements:
1) "... a light will shine through that window, a beam of light will come down upon you, you will experience an epiphany ... and you will suddenly realize that you must go to the polls and vote for Obama" - Barack Obama Lebanon, New Hampshire. (January 7, 2008)
This statement is most definitely couched in religious terms. And, it is most definitely effective!
2) "A quantum leap in American consciousness" (Deepak Chopra)
Deepak Chopra is a major New Age author and lecturer! It is highly significant that Obama is suddenly the darling of a person like this. New Age adherents have been looking for a Messiah figure for a very long time. The fact that he would be so enthusiastic about Obama is very telling as to the kind of eclectic power which he is exuding.
Also, note his quote about a "quantum leap in American consciousness". New Agers believe that, just before the New Age Christ appears, mankind will have passed through a "quantum leap of consciousness"! In fact, the Christ cannot appear until the population of the world passes through this 'quantum leap of consciousness"! Therefore, this statement is within the New Age context of waiting for their Messiah.
3) "We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek." (Obama, Super Tuesday)
The major themes from Obama are deceptively short and very useful as mass propaganda -- 1) "Keep it simple, stupid" and 2) Repeat the same short message as a mantra - are two very effective techniques in deception of the masses. Obama repeats just a few mantras over and over again, and does so as some kind of occult power emanates from his voice and his body.
4) "Some readers understood right away what I meant last week when I said that John McCain has the misfortune to be running against Luke Skywalker ... Obama's myth is a tried-and-true one. The late folklorist Joseph Campbell called it "the hero's journey," and it's found in every culture, from Moses, David and Odysseus to Luke Skywalker, Frodo and Harry Potter."
5) "I'll do whatever he says to do. I'll collect paper cups off the ground to make his pathway clear." (Halle Berry)
6) "Barack Obama is our collective representation of our purest hopes, our highest visions and our deepest knowings . . . He's our product out of the all-knowing quantum field of intelligence." (Eve Konstantine)
7) "This is bigger than Kennedy. . . . This is the New Testament." | "I felt this thrill going up my leg. I mean, I don't have that too often. No, seriously. It's a dramatic event." (Chris Matthews)
Chris Matthews clearly felt a Messianic aura around Obama!
8) "Obama's finest speeches do not excite. They do not inform. They don't even really inspire. They elevate. . . . He is not the Word made flesh, but the triumph of word over flesh . . . Obama is, at his best, able to call us back to our highest selves." (Ezra Klein)
9) "Obama has the capacity to summon heroic forces from the spiritual depths of ordinary citizens and to unleash there from a symphonic chorus of unique creative acts whose common purpose is to tame the soul and alleviate the great challenges facing mankind." (Gerald Campbell)
Clearly, this kind of language is the jargon of a religious messiah.
10) "We're here to evolve to a higher plane . . . he is an evolved leader . . . [he] has an ear for eloquence and a Tongue dipped in the Unvarnished Truth." (Oprah Winfrey)
11) “I would characterize the Senate race as being a race where Obama was, let’s say, blessed and highly favored. That’s not routine. There’s something else going on. I think that Obama, his election to the Senate, was divinely ordered. . . . I know that that was God’s plan." (Bill Rush)
Obviously, these quotes make Obama sound like a man imbued with supernatural power, the kind of Messianic figure the world so desperately wants.
Now, listen to some quotes from this website.
"The Obama campaign uses a religious calling as its central rhetorical trope: "I'm asking you to believe," reads the banner across the top of barackobama.com. His appeal to voters is an archetype of religious conversion: instead of being asked for support, Americans are exhorted to 'join the movement'. In Georgia, he directly equated his supporters with God's people."
NEWS BRIEF: 'We Are The Chosen Ones': A new hymn to Barack Obama - The Telegraph (London), March 6, 2008
"The similarities between Obamian hope and biblical hope are extraordinary."
We could go on and on, listing more instances of Messianic type or Biblical type language. If you want to continue this search, we encourage you to read this material on this "Is Barack Obama the Messiah?" website.
Now, let us return to our Town Hall resource, which we quoted, above, for the final statement which shall lead us into our next news story.
"What is more, Obama knows they are empty promises. In the war between traditionalism and radicalism, Obama stands solidly with radicalism. Though he has a gift for obscuring his positions, Obama is an advocate of gay rights, a strong believer in the concept of private property as social property, an abortion-on-demand fanatic. His pledge to move beyond the politics of the 1960s is a pledge to achieve unity in the fully triumphant program of the 1960s. If Obama is a Messiah, he is a secular Messiah, preaching the word of Tom Hayden."
Did you notice the kinds of positions Obama supports which are anathema to Conservatives and/or Christians?
* Advocate of gay rights
* Strong believer in the concept of private property as social property -- Hillary believes this strongly and the Illuminati Plan envisions the end of private property rights!
* Abortion-on-demand fanatic - How strange for a person who claimed last week that he is a Christian who prays to Jesus daily!
And, now the black charismatic leader, Louis Farrakhan, has endorsed Senator Obama as a messiah!
NEWS BRIEF: "Louis farrakhan Calls OBAMA the messiah! Helter Skelter", You Tube
We encourage you to listen carefully to this extremely revealing video, for it reveals how many people, including many blacks, have already boarded Obama's messianic bus. World Net Daily picked up the exact wording of this video.
NEWS BRIEF: "Farrakhan on Obama: 'The Messiah is absolutely speaking' ", World Net Daily, October 09, 2008
"Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, another powerful Chicago-based political figure associated with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright and other long-time associates of Democratic Party presidential candidate Barack Obama, is leaving no doubt about what he thinks of the leader in the campaign for the White House. He says when Obama talks 'the Messiah is absolutely speaking'."
To Farrakhan, Senator Obama is the "messiah", which literally means the one who appears with great power and charisma to lead his people out of bondage and into the light of freedom and prosperity. But that is not enough for genuine Bible-believing Christians, is it? The Messiah whom we are expecting is the Biblical Messiah, which we Christians know to be Jesus Christ returned the second time.
BUT -- and here is the biggest 'but' of the last 2,000 years -- the first man stepping on to the world stage after Israel became a nation again will be the prophesied False Messiah, also known as the Antichrist. If Obama is anything, he is the coming Antichrist! We shall come back to this segment at the end of this article. For now, let us return to the World Net Daily article. You will see that Farrakhan is speaking of a non-biblical messiah figure.
"Addressing a large crowd behind a podium Feb. 24 with a Nation of Islam Saviour's Day 2008 sign, Farrakhan proclaims, 'You are the instruments that God is going to use to bring about universal change, and that is why Barack has captured the youth. And he has involved young people in a political process that they didn't care anything about. That's a sign. When the Messiah speaks, the youth will hear, and the Messiah is absolutely speaking'."
The words 'universal change' are common in New Age literature speaking of the coming Antichrist. In fact, these words are used so much that they should rightly be considered "buzz words". Whenever Farrakhan used these words to describe Obama, he was casting the New Age specter of the coming Antichrist upon his listeners. Now notice that Louis is promising better things to come, another New Age messianic concept.
" 'Brothers and sisters', Farrakhan said, 'Barack Obama to me, is a herald of the Messiah. Barack Obama is like the trumpet that alerts you something new, something better is on the way'."
This next segment is news to me. I did not know that the Islamic 'Savior' had a black father and white mother. This racial fact could be the reason the Illuminati deliberately chose Barack Obama to be the Democrat candidate for President and, perhaps, the 44th President of the United States.
"Farrakhan points out that the man Nation of Islam followers refer to as 'the Savior', Fard Muhammad, had a black father and a white mother, just as Obama did.' A black man with a white mother became a savior to us', he said. 'A black man with a white mother could turn out to be one who can lift America from her fall. Would God allow Barack to be president of a country that has been so racist, so evil in its treatment of Hispanics, native Americans, blacks?' he asked. 'Would God do something like that? Yeah. Of course he would. That's to show you that the stone that the builders rejected has become the headstone of the corner. This is a sign to you. It's the time of our rise. It's the time that we should take our place. The future is all about you'."
Forget about Farrakhan's misuse of this Biblical passage; he is referring here to a strictly American phenomenon, a political messianic figure which will lead American blacks and people of nonwhite color into the promised land!
This World Net Daily article then reports other times when Senator Obama has been campaigning as a messiah figure.
"WND previously reported a website called "Is Barack Obama the Messiah?" captured the wave of euphoria that followed the Democratic senator's remarkable rise.
The site is topped by an Obama quote strategically ripped from a Jan. 7 speech at Dartmouth College just before the New Hampshire Primary in which he told students, '… a light will shine through that window, a beam of light will come down upon you, you will experience an epiphany, and you will suddenly realize that you must go to the polls and vote' for Obama."
While this statement sounds like mind control at work, it does contain several key messianic elements to which we must pay attention:
1) "light will shine through that window"
2) "a beam of light will come down upon you"
3) "you will experience an epiphany"
Now, here is the Mind Control clincher:
" 'you will suddenly realize that you must go to the polls and vote' for Obama."
Some important people have felt a strange, unexplainable power emanating from this Senator.
"MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews is among the many members of the media enraptured by Obama, admitting he felt a "thrill going up my leg" listening to an Obama speech."
"Columnist Mark Morford of the San Francisco Chronicle writes that Obama has a charisma that goes beyond "his youthful vigor, or handsomeness, or even inspiring rhetoric."
"Bill Clinton, with all his effortless, winking charm, didn't have what Obama has, which is a sort of powerful luminosity, a unique high-vibration integrity," Gladnick says. "Dismiss it all you like, but I've heard from far too many enormously smart, wise, spiritually attuned people who've been intuitively blown away by Obama's presence - not speeches, not policies, but sheer presence - to say it's just a clever marketing ploy, a slick gambit carefully orchestrated by hotshot campaign organizers who, once Obama gets into office, will suddenly turn from perky optimists to vile soul-sucking lobbyist whores, with Obama as their suddenly evil, cackling overlord."
WND also reported when talk radio host Rush Limbaugh criticized Democrats who were comparing Obama to Jesus and Gov. Sarah Palin to Pontius Pilate.
" 'I know Jesus Christ. I pray to Jesus Christ all the time', said Limbaugh. 'I study what Jesus Christ did and said all the time, and let me tell you something, Barack Obama, you are no Jesus Christ'."
"He (Limbaugh) also attacked Obama's stances for abortion and sex education for children in kindergarten, saying, 'I can't find any such references to Jesus promoting infanticide nor do I find any references to Jesus Christ suggesting sex education be taught to 4- and 5-year-olds, but I'm still looking in the New Testament and I'll let you all know if I come up with anything."
In fact, Obama's campaign strategists are using Biblical references all the time.
"Democrats, including party strategist Donna Brazile and Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., made nearly identical biblical comparisons of the characters in this presidential election, which Limbaugh traced back to a Sept. 4 posting on a Washington blog. 'Barack Obama was a community organizer like Jesus', Cohen said during a one-minute speech on the floor of the U.S. House yesterday."
There is no doubt whatsoever that the Democrat Party chieftains have chosen Barack Obama to run a messianic campaign for President. There is also no doubt whatsoever that many Mass Media commentators have adopted this mantra, and there is really no doubt that increasing numbers of American citizens are viewing him in this light.
However, can he even be Antichrist? The Bible is very explicit as to the requirements for Antichrist.
1) Antichrist's original emphasis will be Jewish - Antichrist must deceive the Jewish people into accepting his claims to be the Jewish Messiah.
Therefore, he must be able to prove his lineage back to King David. Listen to the prophecy:
"Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this." (Isaiah 9:7)
God foretold that the true Jewish Messiah would be able to produce a genealogy which runs clearly back to King David. For this reason, Matthew 1 exists in our Bibles, for it proves Jesus' genealogy back to King David. Jews will insist that this newly-arisen Masonic Christ produce a lineage which proves his genealogy back to King David. How is a Masonic Christ, arising out of a 'Revived Roman Empire' (Europe and Great Britain) going to produce his lineage back to King David? That is where the lie inherent in the 'Da Vinci Code' becomes so very important. Antichrist cannot arise until significant numbers of people throughout the world believe the 'Merovingian Bloodline Lie', now so powerfully presented by Hollywood. (Read full details of the "Merovingian Bloodline Lie" and how it relates to Antichrist in our Archived Headline News Article, NEWS2133).
I do grant you that Senator Obama has a bloodline which dates back to the British monarch, King Edward I (NEWS2307). Therefore, he could plug into the Merovingian Bloodline deception, because once Antichrist convinces people that his lineage dates back to Jesus through the Merovingian Kings, then he is "home free" instantly to King David!
However, there are more problematic reasons that Obama is probably not the Biblical Antichrist.
2) Antichrist must come out of the "Revived Roman Empire" -- Great Britain and Europe. (Daniel 9:26b) Listen to this strange wording:
"... And the people of the other prince who will come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. Its end shall come with a flood; and even to the end there shall be war, and desolations are decreed." (Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)
Evangelical Bible scholars have been united in their opinion that the "other prince" is a reference to the ruling prince of the kingdom which put the true Messiah to death in the first part of Daniel 9:26. That kingdom, of course, was the Old Roman Empire. Thus, Antichrist is foretold to be the "other prince" of this passage, thus requiring that the Old Roman Empire be revived at the End of the Age. And, of course, right on schedule, Western Europe arose from the ashes of history, comprised of almost exactly the same territory as the original empire possessed -- even Great Britain!
Does Barack Obama come from Western Europe! No, he does not, and it is a real stretch to state that, since America came from England, it could be considered part of the Revived Roman Empire. Ancient Rome controlled Great Britain, but never stepped foot on North America. No, Obama does not come from any country which was originally part of the Old Roman Empire.
3) Antichrist will not be married -- Daniel 11:37
"Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all." (Dan 11:37)
Antichrist will not desire women; Evangelical Bible scholars have long held that this prophecy means that the coming "Man of Perdition" will not be married, and may be gay. Obviously, since Barack Obama is married with two children, he is disqualified from being the Biblical Antichrist.
4) Antichrist will not regard any god, but will worship the 'god of forces' - Daniel 11:38
"But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour." (Daniel 11:38)
Which god does Senator Obama honor? He has professed to be a Christian, and he has said that he prays to Jesus daily. This means that with his lips, he honors Jesus Christ. The Senator also committed a slip of the tongue when he made reference to "my Muslim faith". Thus, it is evident that he honors Allah, the god of Islam. As the famous Islamic saying goes, "Allah is god, and Mohammed is his prophet".
Therefore, Obama cannot be Antichrist.
5) Antichrist must carry the title, "Prince"! Let us return back to Daniel 9:26, as we quoted above, to pick up one critically important prophetic fact.
"... And the people of the other prince who will come ..."
Antichrist must carry the title, "Prince" prior to his arising on the world scene! Only the monarchies of Great Britain and Europe (the Revived Roman Empire) carry the titles "Prince", "King" and "Queen". This fact takes us back to the Revived Roman Empire, does it not? Since Barack Obama does not carry the title, "Prince", he is disqualified to be Antichrist.
For these reasons, Senator Barack Obama cannot be THE Biblical Antichrist.
However, he can be and undoubtedly is, "an antichrist".
"Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists..." (1 John 2:18)
In fact, if Obama ascends to the Oval Office, he will be the President at the very time the North American Union NAFTA) is finalized. By the lofty nature of his office, a President Obama will be the de facto head or ruler of NAFTA. Thus, the 10-nation reorganization foretold in prophecy and planned by the Illuminati will have come into reality. (Read NEWS1002, "NAFTA: The Shocking 'Rest of the Story' ")
This means that he will be part of the welcoming committee when Antichrist does arise. Listen to the prophecy of Daniel 7:7-8, where Daniel sees four Gentile Kingdoms that gave way to a reorganization of 10 Horns (symbolizing 10 kings).
"After this I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast [the Roman empire]--terrible, powerful and dreadful, and exceedingly strong. And it had great iron teeth; it devoured and crushed and trampled what was left with its feet. And it was different from all the beasts that came before it, and it had ten horns [symbolizing ten kings]." (Daniel 7:7; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)
In other words, God is prophesying here that the entire world will be reorganized into 10 super nations, each one with a ruler. Interestingly, the Illuminati Plan foresaw a global reorganization into precisely 10 super nations! As we reveal in NEWS1002, above, NAFTA is Nation #1 is the Illuminati 10-Nation reorganization.
Therefore, a President Obama will be one of the 10 Rulers of this Illuminati Kingdom! And, that means he is AN antichrist, sharing the same characteristics as THE Biblical Antichrist. Listen again to the prophecy:
"I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn..." Dan 7:8
The "little horn" which came up from among the 10 horns is most definitely Antichrist. The wording of this passage clearly indicates that Antichrist is of the same spiritual bent as the 10 kings who preceded him! This means that a President Obama will be of the same occult spiritual inclination as Antichrist. Therefore, people will consider Obama a likely candidate to be the Biblical Antichrist, but this simply cannot be.
What Obama will be is a replica of the Biblical Antichrist. But, not the real "Man of Sin".
These events are propelling the world into the final days of the End of the Age, and it does look like the 44th American President will be on hand to welcome the Biblical Antichrist. Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.
If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.
We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their daily news.
Finally, we would love to hear from you.
