The Spirit of Antichrist – By Daymond Duck – http://www.raptureready.com/featured/duck/dd113.html
A few years ago I wrote an article about this, but the blatant arrogance, lying and lawlessness of President Obama has prompted me to update and add to it with more recent examples.
I personally do not believe President Obama is the Antichrist for four reasons:
1) Because the Antichrist must rise to power after the 10 kings and they are not here (Dan.7:24).
2) Because the Antichrist must rise to power in Europe not the U.S. (Dan. 9:26).
3) Because the Antichrist can’t appear while the church is here.
4) Because President Obama is a very poor, indecisive, foolish leader; but he definitely has the spirit of Antichrist and he could be a type or forewarning of the Antichrist (1 Cor. 10:11).
The Antichrist will have a mouth speaking great things (Dan.7:8). Pres. Obama has been hailed as a great speaker.
The Antichrist will rise to power as a little horn, wax exceedingly great, and take over the world (Dan.7:8; 8:9; Rev.13:7-8). Two years before he ran for President of the United States, Mr. Obama was virtually unknown (a little horn). Today, he has great power and some want him to head up the New World Order (rule the world).
The Antichrist will seek to change laws (Dan.7:25). Pres. Obama has arbitrarily (some say illegally) changed laws. He has changed Obamacare more than 25 times; changed drug, immigration, and minimum wage laws without congressional approval, etc.
The Antichrist will wear out the saints (Dan.7:25). President Obama supported Mr. Morsi in Egypt and the rebels in Syria even though they were persecuting and killing Christians. He has tried to force Christians to pay for abortions, accept homosexuality, etc.
The Antichrist will magnify himself (Dan.8:11). President Obama was overheard telling French President Francois Hollande, “That’s the good thing about being president; I can do anything I want.” He thinks his words and actions are above question.
The Antichrist will cast down the truth (Dan.8:12). President Obama is a chronic liar whose promise: If you like your health care plan, you can keep it” was selected by PolitiFact as the 2013 “Lie of the Year.”
The Antichrist will destroy wonderfully (Dan.8:24). President Obama is destroying America’s military, healthcare system, Constitution, economy, etc. and he is not through.
The Antichrist will rise to power as a man of peace (Dan. 8:25). President Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize for doing nothing. He crafted a peace plan for the Middle East and said, “America will never give up.”
The Antichrist will break his covenant (Dan.9:27). President Obama has broken many agreements (Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Israel, etc.). At this point, he has not kept America’s treaty to protect Ukraine’s borders.
The Antichrist will do according to his will (Dan.11:36). President Obama said, “We’re not just going to be waiting for legislation . . . . I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone.” He was saying he will do according to his will.
The Antichrist will not regard the god of his father (Dan.11:37). President Obama’s father is a Muslim whose god is Allah, and President Obama denies that his god is Allah.
The Antichrist will exalt himself (Dan.11:36-37; 2 Thess.2:4). Someone said, “Pres. Obama loves the man in the mirror.” He trashes everyone who disagrees with him; calls them extremists, domestic terrorists, racists, un-American, has the IRS investigate them, etc.
The Antichrist will divide the land of Israel for gain (Dan.11:39). Pres. Obama supports the two-state solution. He wants the Jews to stop construction on the West Bank, divide the land, and give the West Bank to the Palestinians.
The Antichrist will be given power (Rev. 13:2, 4-5). Pres. Obama rose from Community Organizer to Pres. of the United States without being vetted or doing anything to earn (or qualify him for) the position. His power was more or less given to him.
The Antichrist will track what people buy and sell (Rev.13:16-18). Pres. Obama has transformed the domestic spy program started by President Bush into a global spy program. Also, Obamacare requires all Americans to carry a National ID Card with personal identity descriptions (face scans, etc.) to track people by May 2017.
The Antichrist will be a false messiah that is worshipped by many (Rev.13:8). Many have called Pres. Obama the Messiah, the one, etc. Some have rewritten Christian songs to praise him. One photo of him has the Shekinah Glory around his face.
The Antichrist will establish a world government (Dan.7:23; Rev. 13:7; 17:12-13). Candidate Obama expressed support for a “globalized world.”
