Savior or Anti-Christ? :: By Jeff Patty

Recently, actor Jamie Foxx stated during the Soul Train awards, “First of all, give an honor to God and our lord and savior Barack Obama.” Wow. Besides being incredibly blasphemous, it’s just plain scary. He isn’t the first, and he won’t be the last, to refer to Obama as the Messiah and see a golden halo above his head. And the way that people adore Obama and seem to have no problem accepting his supposed holiness, show just how ready and willing the world is to be deceived and accept the anti-Christ. “And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you: For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.” Mark 13:5-6 (KJV)

Until this November, when Obama stole…I mean, won the election, I had said many times to close family and friends that I didn’t believe Obama could actually be the anti-Christ simply because, he really isn’t that smart. Oh, if you believe the State-run media, then yes, he makes Einstein look like Forest Gump. But the simple fact is, he’s not the sharpest tool in the shed. And for this reason, I wrote him off as far as the possibility of being the anti-Christ. But since his re-election, I’m beginning to have my doubts. He does fit the profile and have the characteristics.

Before I go any further, I want to state, this is just my opinion and I’m just thinking out loud. Prophecy is not my area of expertise, so I don’t claim to be a Hal Lindsey or any other prophecy teacher with decades of focus in this area under his or her belt. But, from my own studies and observances, I don’t think it’s out of the realm of possibility that Obama could be the future and last world leader.

First of all, the media and many “average Joe’s” have alluded to the “fact” that Obama is either the Messiah or has a god-like aura and presence. (I personally think he has the aura and presence of a wet, cold, blanket) And something that even a lot of Christians may not have noticed, Obama has never condemned this kind of talk or comparison. Quite the opposite actually, he seems to eat it up. He basks in the glow of it.

Secondly, and I know a lot of people disagree, but he is in reality a practicing Muslim. It takes very little research and digging to find a lot of solid proof of this. It’s just that most people don’t want to know and don’t care to know. A person is labeled an “extremist” or a “nut-job” for even dare mentioning the possibility that he might be a Muslim. And I personally believe that the anti-Christ will be a Muslim, which I also know runs counter to what’s been taught for decades concerning prophecy, but I agree with some of the recent teaching and evidence. And the fact that beheading people, as a form of execution is the most popular method for the Muslim extremists and the fact that it will be the primary form of execution during the Tribulation, makes a lot of sense to me.

Third, he seems to have a closet full of homosexual skeletons. Again, many people will dispute this but, it’s yet another case of spending a little time doing some research and finding overwhelming evidence of this in his past.

There are many more similarities; this is just some brief thoughts that I’ve had lately. I’m sure there are many people that have thought about this more than I have and may have a list a mile long. But this to me is enough to give one pause and to think about the possibility that Obama may love the Messiah worship for more than just feeding his narcissism.

Many people believe that the Rapture will take place before the anti-Christ is revealed because of 2 Thess 2:3, “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;” And this may be true but, I tend to believe that this scripture is referring to the apostasy in the Church, which we are seeing on a daily basis at an extremely rapid pace. The Emergent leaders are working fast and furious to see to that. And then you have Rick Warren, the “Top Dog” of the Emergents, whose interfaith project says that we Christians worship the same God as the Muslims. Uh, no we don’t. Maybe he does, but I don’t.

I pray the Rapture is soon, and I believe we need to lift our eyes and look to Heaven every day for our redemption. But things are happening so fast now, and regardless of how much we think we know and understand concerning prophecy and the Last Days, we need to be prepared to possibly witness and be subjected to more than we would like or hope.
