Paul's Revolution -- Day 5
Yesterday I was asked to review some of the many YouTube videos revealing a startling, if not disturbing, “reality” that President Obama is in fact the Antichrist. I have to say that the videos were interesting. Their ability to connect the dots was impressive and alarming. But I couldn’t help but think back to the Star Trek Voyager episode where 7 of 9 was afflicted with some illness that made her paranoid and she began to randomly connect details of the ships crew which formulated into a conflict between Chacote and Captain Janeway. Almost destroyed the ship. Fortunately they were able to resolve everything within 60 minutes.
So, what does this mean for President Obama, is he the Antichrist? Whenever suffering occurs or someone promotes and agenda that is against the general principles of scripture there are those who cry that the end is near. The first century Christians did it with Nero (who was probably more like the Anti Christ than any of the others), Pope John Paul, JKF, the Clintons (Hillary still scares me), and now President Obama. The Apostle John makes these statements.
“For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is the deceiver and the antichrist…Just as you heard that antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have appeared.”
There will be THE Antichrist but we don’t know who he will be or when he will arrive on the scene. But there are many antichrists in our midst, those who deny Jesus coming in the flesh, those who fight against Christian beliefs, and those who would like to see the name of Christ obliterated. Every generation has these antichrists. One of these days Satan will raise one of them up as a puppet to wreak havoc on the world. The Apostle John writes about the antichrist so that the believers will not be deceived. He wants them to stand in the truth and their faith in their savior, Jesus. So it is important for us as well to stand on the truth that Jesus has come in the flesh and through faith in his death and resurrection we can have eternal life. There are many antichrists in our midst. They are our neighbors, our coworkers, politicians, and, sadly, our family members. Any of these can lead us from the truth if we are not careful. We need to stand on the promises and precepts of the scripture.
I will say, from what I have read and heard, that President Obama is an antichrist. His policies, behaviors, and statements do not conform to the gospel of truth, but rather are designed to promote false beliefs and diminish the gospel. There is a snake in our midst. The dots that have been connected to ‘prove’ that he is THE antichrist are interesting and antidotal, but are based, not on the scriptures, but man’s ability to manipulate data. Yet……
