And By Peace He Shall Destroy Many Daniel 9:27
For the uninitiated, the Biblical Antichrist will be an individual spawned by Satan, who is the antithesis of Christ the Messiah, who came to establish an earthly kingdom which will not be fully realized until Jesus returns to earth. Even as His kingdom exists today in what is known as The Church (called-out ones), it will not be fully manifested until Christ's Return.
According to the Bible, the Apostle Paul describes the "Man Of Sin" Jesus counterpart - in 2 Thessalonians, as someone who shall be revealed, when a great falling away occurs in the Church. I dare say that in 2000 years of church history, we have never seen churches so plagued with sodomy, pedophilia, adultery, and heresy than today. Thessalonians tells us that this Antichrist will be accompanied with lying signs and wonders. Obama is not there, yet, unless you consider his mesmerizing over 50 million Democrats, academia, and the State Controlled Media. Also in 2 Thessalonians, "He (the Antichrist) opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remind you of anyone?
The Prophet Daniel mentions this Antichrist figure several times from the 7th through 12th chapter -and elsewhere - in his Book of Daniel. This entity will: "Speak against the Most High - Chapter 7; Set himself up to be as great as the Prince of the host, and he will become very strong, but not by his own power. He will cause astounding devastation and will succeed in whatever he does. He will destroy the mighty men and the holy people. He will cause deceit to prosper, and he will consider himself superior. When they feel at peace, he will destroy many and take his stand against the Prince of princes. - Chapter 8.
Daniel also predicts in Chapter 9, And on a wing of the temple [Jerusalem]he will set up an abomination that causes desolation. In Chapter 11 we see this, He will exalt and magnify himself above every god and will say unheard-of things against the God of gods. He will be successful until the time of wrath is completed. And He will also invade the Beautiful Land - Jerusalem.
Antiochos Epiphanies as mentioned by Josephus, and the Maccabees, as referenced by Jesus and Daniel exemplify the traits of an Antichrist as someone who totally dishonors the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Jesus through pagan, or what we would call popular, secular philosophies, today. One may see this in liberal Jewish temples, as well as, even more inexcusably, in the modern Christian mainline denominational churches.
The original Antiochus profaned the Jewish temple with idols and had naked Olympians prancing around the Holy Place. Christianity has no less defiled its profession with unimaginable desecrations. Jeremiah Wright and gay Episcopalian Bishop Gene Robinson are only two of many examples. Liberal Jewish temples are home to GLBT types.
Jesus refers to the future destructions of Jerusalem, which has had many, mentioned in Daniel and the "abomination which makes desolate." He said that people would not accept Him and his Plan of Salvation, but they would accept others (antichrists). However, unless they come as the lightning as from East to West, they are not Him!
There are many nuances and interpretations of end time events as understood by well meaning Christians. I have been studying this for over 25 years,and I must say like the Apostle Paul, "I have not apprehended it all," yet.
Most Bible scholars agree that the Antichrist will be "against" and "instead of," the Real Deal, Jesus Christ. THE Antichrist (and there are many mini Mes, or lesser antichrists),the Son of Satan, will have to be charismatic, popular, everything to everybody, except to those who do not fall for his false deity. He will make peace when the world is on edge. He will promise everything to everybody, but he will especially hate Jews (not the liberal flavor), Christians, and have a hatred for Jerusalem. Sound like anybody you know living today?
To be fair, I can remember when Bible "scholars" knew for a fact that Henry Kissinger was the Antichrist because they assembled the letters of his name in Greek or Hebrew and computed them to be the number 666. Same with Boutros Boutros Ghali, former Secretary General of the United Nations. Same with Ahmadinejad, President of Iran. Countless Popes have been contenders for THE Antichrist, as well as a multitude of Rabbis throughout history. Even Arnold Schwarzenegger.
The Bible does hint that the Antichrist will be a flamer and "Have no desire for women," Daniel Chapter 9. Even though President Obama lisps or stretches his "s" sounds in sort of a serpentine manner, I believe he still loves women - though quite a few less than Bill Clinton, so far. BTW Speech therapists refer to the lenghtening of the "s" in wordsssssss as the "snake sound."
I mean, everything looks as if it could be Go Time for THE END with the President entreating all of our enemies by consistently humiliating our own United States, at a time when all three of the major religions are looking for, what a coninkydink, a Messiah. Islam, Judaism and Christianity are looking for The One. Is Rush Limbaugh just joking, or is Obama The One?
