Controversial pastor links Obama's gay marriage endorsement to...the future rise of the AntiChrist
The Blaze ^ | 1/10/2014 | Bily Hallowell

Posted on 01/11/2014 6:45:32 AM PST by NetAddicted

The Rev. Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas, will release a new book this month that is sure to spark theological and political debate, particularly because of its mention of President Barack Obama’s support of gay marriage — and the Christian belief in the coming of the Antichrist.

In his new book, “Perfect Ending,” Jeffress makes it clear that he doesn’t believe President Barack Obama is the Antichrist, a key figure in End Times theology, though he makes an important distinction about Obama’s endorsement of same-sex marriage, according to excerpts published by Religion News Service.

“For the first time in history a president of our country has openly proposed altering one of society’s (not to mention God’s) most fundamental laws: that marriage should be between a man and a woman,” the author writes in “Perfect Ending.”

I totally agree Obamer is not the antichrist but perhaps a forerunner. If one is not right with God, it may well be time to do so.

Jeffress makes it clear that he doesn’t believe President Barack Obama is the Antichrist

Not the antiChrist but an antiChrist?

He may not be the anti-christ, most likely a disciple.

Controversial pastor?

Guess that all depends on how you look at it.
I believe the Bible—all of it—and I have studied it for a good many years. People of faith in Christ who study the Bible know without a doubt that we are in the last days, and it is easy to see how the increasing acceptance of sin and perversion by more and more people and particularly by our leaders will make the time of the Anti-Christ easy to be ushered in.

The times are being fulfilled according to what the Jewish prophets, Christ/Messiah, and the NT apostles said, when they spoke and wrote God’s words to all people—which make it clear that Israel AND the nations will be judged when the Lord of lords and King of kings returns to Jerusalem to set up His kingdom. It is at that time that a remnant of Israel will be saved and all the nations who were opposed to the nation Israel will be judged.

Could have a point there. Obama certainly is Satanic in many ways.

Having gone on to read his entire message following Obama's reelection, it's not bad enough that Obama reflects these (pro-gay) views and as of yesterday, is forcing them into effect, against a public vote and affirmation, with no meaningful kick-back, that the public seem not only resigned to accept his lawlessness but to have affirmed it!

That and now two major moves in very dangerous direction: strong-arming gun control "laws" to every American and embarking on making drug use no longer a felony but encouraged by the people!

Pushing gays in the military, weakening physical standards to allow more women into combat, forcing states to accept gay marriage as normal and entitled to government benefits, disarming the people and lastly moves to encourage drug use by the out-of-work people living on government benefits (paid for by hard-working American taxpayers (and an even more dangerous to our American Constitution and way of life, amnesty for millions of people coming from Third World Countries!)

Our once lawful society is becoming more and more open to mass violence (witness the story of "youths rushing a store and manager, stealing everything of value," the so-called "knock out 'games,'" an Attorney General bent on protecting and encouraging "my people!")

When Holder protected the Black Panthers and endangered Philadelphians attempting to vote, was but the first "shot heard around the world" of acceptance of minority violence against white citizenry and has gone downhill at a record pace.

Yes, the climate is becoming more and more open to the anti-Christ, certainly when believers around the world are being shut down and shut up for espousing the bible.

Obama is focusing his laser on America, just as he has focused the laser on American Jobs.

God’s most fundamental laws: that marriage should be between a man and a woman,”

Obama is trying to overturn that Amendment in Utah. I wonder how all the Mormons feel about that?

1 John 2:18
Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour.

1 John 2:22
Who is the liar? It is whoever denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a person is the antichrist—denying the Father and the Son.

1 John 4:3
but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.

2 John 1:7
I say this because many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist.

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

From 1 John, we learn that the concept of antichrist is not just the person of Antichrist from the End Times, but it is any spirit or person that denies Jesus. So it’s not just homosexuality - it is ANYTHING that goes against what Jesus would have us do.

The closer the world gets to embracing a spirit of antichrist (and it certainly seems that it is), the closer we will likely get to the appearance of Antichrist.

As an OT believer, I’ve liked Jeffress for some time, and to this day can’t figure out what caused Tim Tebow to pull the plug on an address he was to have given at his Dallas church. I don’t subscribe to this anti-Christ business, but certainly don’t disrespect those who do.

Christians made the United States. But we are becoming less free seemingly by the moment. I pray that we can ALL put it back together someday.

Yet "Christians" who voted this man into office the first but more so the second time knew his stance on gay marriage and still supported him. These people should question THEIR faith more than Obama's. Color is no reason to bypass your belief. Is it really worth that MUCH?????

Don't get me started on abortion......

Forerunner. Perfect description for him. When the anti-Christ does make his appearance, it’s not difficult to imagine news reports saying, “Not since the campaign frenzy surrounding Barack Obama has so much excitement been generated for a politician until______________.” Not hard to imagine at all.

It’s estimated that between 20 and 33 percent of the members of the conservative church in a very conservative county voted for this clown. A person I know who teaches on Sunday voted for this clown. When asked why his answer was because.

If preachers would stand up more like this one things might be different.

Rev Jeffress nailed it, Obama's tyrannical regime is just a relatively very mild sample of what life will be like under AntiChrist's demonic 7-year rule over the entire earth. Non-believers will and do laugh at and ridicule bible believing Christians and call us ignorant troglodytes or worse, but they or their non-believing progeny will be here to experience the horrors that AntiChrist will unleash on everyone who still exists on Earth when he takes over, and we bible believing Christians won't.

And please don't accuse me of being secretly glad that unbelievers will suffer under AntiChrist's rule, no one could more earnestly desire the unbeliever's salvation and new life in Christ than I do.

In selecting men for office, let principle be your guide. Regard not the particular sect or denomination of the candidate, look to his character. The scriptures teach that "Rulers should be men who rule in the fear of God, able men, men of truth, hating covetousness. It is to the neglect of this rule that we must ascribe the multified frauds, breaches of trust, and embezzlement of public property which tarnish the character of our country and disgrace government. When a citizen gives his vote to a man of known immorality, he abuses his civic responsibility, he sacrifices not only his interest, but that of his neighbor; he betrays the interest of his country."

Noah Webster, 1823

“Controversial” eh?

And calling sodomy “good and normal” is just so mainstream, I take it?

child sacrifice is worldwide. That is the last straw, or the abomination that causes desolation. It will be in the best interests of the blind to listen to the lies. They will want to break every law of God and will be willing to do anything to do so, even rat out their Christian parents to die.

Elaborating!

Always good to provide additional scriptural reference to support the argument.

I also agree that Obama is not the anti-christ. He is however proof of how easy it will be for the anti-christ to deceive all the people.(not all the people but the majority of the people). There will be holdouts, much like there were in Nazi Germany. They never get mention because it would ruin some people’s agenda. He will come and he will be smooth as glass. Everything he says will sound good. We are within the general time period when it will happen. Abortion, gays in the military, gay marriage and other slippages in the moral code in such a short time should be indications. Think you that God will wait forever? He has given us warnings. I, for one, am listening. Tjink Sodom was just a story? Think again! Don’t buy that junk you see on the history channel that Sodom’s sin was that they were’t receptive of guests and that is why God destroyed them.
