An Important Election Indeed: Heaven and Hell in the Balance
CommonsensicalCat ^ | 10/8/2008 | C C Matthews

Okay, I cannot take it any more. I have went off the deep end and have lost sanity. Or perhaps I am more sane than most. I consider myself a modestly intelligent man. What I am about to say will surely cause many of you to label me a "wacko." I don't care, I cannot take it any longer. Days after I warned that I may now be the crazy man standing on the corner, I am convinced that I am not crazy, rather, the rest of the world is. I believe that the United States is on the brink of electing the Anti-Christ in Barack Obama. I do not say this without reason, allow me to try and persuade you to see my side.

Let us look to the Bible. Let us look at Revelation 13 to be exact since it speaks in great detail of the coming of the Anti-Christ.

13:1 Reads - "And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy." - Rising up out of the sea to me means that the Anti-Christ will be from an island nation - or perhaps Hawaii. The seven heads seem to suggest possibly the seven continents, especially considering that they are later called seven hills in the sea. The 10 horns could be seen as countries where the Anti-Christ will derive power from, and which will become 10 kingdoms for an hour so says the Bible.

13:2 Reads - "And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority." - leopards are two colors, perhaps predicting he is biracial. The dragon that helped him win his seat (perhaps seat in Congress) and has great authority could be Obama's financial backer and head of the world-wide Unification Church Sun Myung Moon whose original name was Mun Yong Myong. Yong means "dragon" in Korean, but Moon changed his name to keep Christians from equating him with the dragon in Revelation, which is exactly what I am doing. Moon has suggested he is the second Christ and is a very dangerous man and a very big financial backer of Obama.

13:3 Reads - "And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast." I am not sure what is meant by this. Perhaps Obama will survive an assassination attempt. Or perhaps the 7 heads are the seven continents and since Obama has come to heal America, perhaps his stepping in while we are on the edge of financial ruin is what this refers to. I am not a Bible scholar, just a regular Joe doing my best to make sense of this.

13:4 Reads - "And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?" Surely we can say that people's obsession with Obama is a bit weird to say the least. Kids are marching to him and chanting Alpha and Omega like they would a God. Then you have other kids singing to him as if he were a God. Then you have other people fainting when Obama talks. Then you have people worshipping Obama financial supporter Reverend Moon (the dragon) as the second coming of Christ. And you have 200,000 people in GERMANY turning out to see Obama at an address in Berlin. Last time I checked, Obama wasn't running for anything there. I also think there is more to this. Many supposedly "Christian" churches in the US and abroad have become too accepting. I do not think God is pleased. I think we have allowed political correctness and tolerance to run amok.

13:5 Reads - "And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months." How long is a presidential cycle? By the time the President gets settled into office and gets his feet on the ground it surely cannot be much more than 42 months. In addition everyone can agree Obama is a great orator. He has a mouth for speaking great things, but he mocks the Bible. He also seems a bit full of himself as was displayed in John McCain's commercial "The One."

13:16 Reads - "And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads." Surely this can never happen right? Maybe it can and already is. Barack Obama has sponsored a bill - Senate Bill 2911 for "interoperability with electronic medical records." This would expedite medical information about people, but its a short jump to the implementation of micro-chips in humans like animals that would allow humans to purchase and sell things based on their implanted microchips. Read the articles, a bit chilling.

13:18 Reads - "Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six." I may have been reading this passage wrong my entire life. I have always assumed the number of the Beast was 666. But the passage actually states that if you have understanding you should COUNT THE NUMBER. Well since 666 is already put out there, perhaps counting means adding. 6+6+6=18. So 18 is the number of the Beast? Barack Hussein Obama has 18 letters. It may be a stretch, but when viewed in light of the totality of the situation, it seems a bit chilling to me.

Further in Revelation you find that a woman classified as "The Great Prostitute" will ride the Beast (Obama?). The Great Prostitute is also mentioned as "The Great City" and "Babylon." Could this be the United States of America?

Revelation 18:3 Reads - "For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies." Surely no where in the world has made merchants richer than the United States.

18:11 Reads - "And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more." Again, this seems eerily like a description of the United States and the world's need for us as its great consumer. It also seems to suggest that something terrible is going to happen to us and if we in America are truly the "Great Prostitute" we will be riding on "The Beast."

Maybe I am way off in my thinking. Maybe I am reading way too much into all this. Or maybe many of us are missing the boat and not seeing what is right in front of our eyes. We have an inexperienced candidate who came from no where and on whom nothing sticks. It does not matter that this candidate can be linked to ACORN, Ayers, Wright, Raines, and Johnson. It does not matter that this candidate has the most liberal voting record in Congress. It does not matter that this candidate has a name that is one letter removed from two of our most hated Muslim enemies. Indeed it seems sometimes as if we are being handed an UNELECTABLE candidate to show us how blind we are to what is going on. And the scary thing, we are likely going to elect him.

I encourage you to do your own research, but don't discount it as a possibility. My daughter asked me why it would happen in our generation - WHY NOT? If we as Christians truly believe what we say we do, does this not seem a bit too eerie to look past without at least doing a bit of research and taking a bit of time to make sure we share with our loved ones? After all this may be the most important election in the history of mankind...Heaven and Hell may be watching.

Obama is not bright enough to be the anti-Christ. There is no need to worry. McCain is only down a couple points nationwide even after the bailout. Against Hillary he would be over 20 down now. Obama is very beatable. McCain sucks as a candidate, but Obama sucks even more so I really doubt Obama will win this absent major voting fraud.

The AC has to come from a small country (a "little horn") that comes from the old Greek and Roman empires (see Dan. 7 and 8). While one could make the case that the US comes from the Greek and Roman empires culturally and politically, you can't that we're small, nor that Kenya--which is relatively small--came from Greece or Rome.

Obama may be an antichrist, he's not the Beast.

Obama may not be “THE” anti-Christ, but he is AN anti-Christ. Of course, there are many of those.

It just seems to me that the Anti-Christ has GOT to be a lot slicker and cooler than Obambi. He's as fake as a $3 bill. Yes, there are many who buy into him, but, it seems like there should be even more who can't see through it.

The Uh...uh...uh...uh... that just doesn't seem like Anti-Christ material.

Definitely anti-christ with a lower-case "a", but I don't know if he's the One.

0bama is a useful idiot for whoever is pulling his strings.

His campaign money, from what I see, is coming from some seriously evil people and places in the world.

Dear Cat,

I know from experience that getting too deep into Revelation can drive a person up the wall trying to figure it out. It is so full of figurative things, a lot of which have already happened according to Biblical scholars who are a lot more learned in Bible prophecy and scholarship than the average person. (Halley’s Bible Commentary is a pretty good one, I think. Only thing was that Halley was very intently prejudiced about the Catholic Church and thought the Pope was the Anti-Christ. I don’t know about that at this juncture. We all tend to try to figure out the Bible based on what we know at the present time, and we can read a lot into it.) I personally at this time tend to think that Mohammedanism (Islam) may well be the harlot referred to in Revelation, but that’s just my take on it as things stand now. - You may be on to something about Obama, but our best hope is to pray for what we want in this election and not lose hope and not worry overmuch about Obama. I personally think the whole Democrat Party is promoting antichrist principles. Only the Lord can deliver us from that evil.

I do know that in prophecy when “waters” are referred to as in someone rising out of the “waters”, that usually is referring to the multitudes of peoples. All the heads, and horns and things like that, I have to leave to the scholars of Bible prophecy to interpret sensibly. We should read it, but not get into a depression trying to understand it.

The main thing is this, though. Christ said, “Fear not.” Scripture tells us to “Cast ALL your cares on the Lord, for He careth for YOU.” I’m simply praying for the McCain/Palin ticket; however, I am simply telling the Lord, “Thy will be done.” He knows the end of things and the beginning of things, and His kingdom is our true government, for “the Government shall be upon His shoulders”. Man’s government is imperfect and is coming to an end one of these days sooner or later, so “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding, In all thy WAYS acknowledge Him and He shall direct THY paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes (not thinking we’re so smart). Fear the Lord (not some antichrist), and depart from evil. It shall be health unto thy navel and marrow unto thy bones.”

I’m sure there are a lot of good Bible commentaries out there that explain a lot about Revelation. In reading that book in the Bible, remember that a lot of it has already happened, and we do not have to be afraid of what is to come if we trust in the Lord.

I have thought and thought about this... Wondering why so many people could be blinded by such a man. He has so much power behind him. It is pretty scary. But then I also think maybe God is just getting us Christians (eyes wide open) to be ready and see the truth because I believe if Obama is not the anti christ we are definitely experiencing birthing pains for the real one. Btw: when I mention these things to others they look at me like I am wackoo too. I just think God opens the eyes of his people and others are just blinded.......

Thank you so much for your words of encouragement, they do not fall on deaf ears. I am the least among us, and that is why I feel a great weight upon me from what I believe this information to be. I had dreams that caused the research, now the research gives way to more vivid dreams. I am a mixture of excitement, nervousness, and anxiety and your words are great comfort to me. Thanks.

Regarding 13:18 your math is off. The number of the beast is not 666 but 616.
A fragment from the oldest surviving copy of the New Testament, dating to the Third century, gives the more mundane 616 as the mark of the Antichrist.
See: When I learned the sign of the beast 666 is really 616… and Beast’s real mark devalued to ‘616′

Anybody remember Jeanne Dixon’s prophecy about one with “satanic widsom” whom the youth would idolize and flock after and who as a child was “living in another part of the Arab world” -?- really scary.

Very thoughtful stuff. I had exactly the same thinking about the first 2 points, and have been looking into the rest of Rev. 13 during the past few days. Thank you for sharing. It is very fascinating and thought-provoking to watch the election in the midst of the world financial meltdown while entertain the possibility that perhaps Rev. 13 is being fulfilled right here in America. The worst this election can offer is predicted in the book of Revelation and no vote will hold it back (Rev. 13:7) as pointed out in the following link:
