The History Channel Does Another Hit Piece On Christianity (Is Obama The Anti-Christ?)
http://www.history.com/shows.do?episodeId=203461&action=detail ^ | 11/15/2008 | History.com

How would you recognize the most evil person on Earth? According to many historical texts, you should look for a brilliant, enigmatic public figure who transforms the world for good--for a while. Basically, the last person you'd tap as Satan's human emissary. While many believe the Antichrist has come and gone, just as many believe he will soon arrive, if he's not already in our midst. Join us for harrowing two-hour look at an evil so obscure that he answers only to Satan. Real? Our group of prophecy believers and historical experts help sort it out. We follow the emergence of the Antichrist from pre-Judaic texts, through the Book of Daniel and Revelation, into Christian writings of the Middle Ages, and other religious traditions as well. Aided by interviewees both religious and secular, comprised of eminent clergy, scholars, historians, psychologists, and culture makers, we'll examine the evil enigma from every conceivable angle

Basically they make fun of anyone who believes that the end times are near and that every generation throughout history has their own Anti-Christ, including Hitler. Total brain/man worship at it's best. Completely moronic definition of "The Beast". Paradox is that the New World Order is in complete simpatico with Bible prophecy.

I think I’ve seen this one before. Unless they made a new one.

This is part of the war on Christianity. The Gays are part of that war that is being waged on Christianity now

From what I understand reading the Revelation of John is that the Anti-Christ will come from what is now the mid-east area. When the Bible spoke of the world it was the Roman world since they didn’t know there was the North and South American continents ... anyway being Jewish I look for the anti-Christ to come out of the mid-east area ....

--------make fun of anyone who believes that the end times are near ----

People have believed that for a very long time, what's wrong with making fun of them?

Obama is not THE anti-Christ. The real one is yet to come, though I believe the stage is being set. We should not concern ourselves with this anyway, but live each day in the best possible manner.

There's a difference of opinion between Protestants and Catholics regarding what "anti christ" even means.

It isn't necessary to come up with a "conspiracy" to figure out that you will find divergent opinions on the matter.

That's why I've lately been referring to Obama as "an acolyte of the antichrist". I'd earlier relegated Hillary Clinton to the character identified as "the beast" ~ hence "Hildabeast".

Again, there are different readings. Some argue that "the beast" and the "anti christ" are the same, some argue that they're different, and may, in fact, occupy totally different periods of time.

You can step off the planet arguing about the various female figures in Revelation.

Tothe degree Revelation differs from Daniel, I dismiss it.

Please yourself, but pardon me if I laugh. Provide a projection of an event on a certain date or I’d say in a 30 day period, so we can wait with you and then move on.

Historically many people have had unfounded views on the natural sciences. So I guess all of natural science is bunk, right?

No wait, arguments that profoundly stupid are only valid when used by naturalists against theology.

True but was it revealed to John??
He spoke of Gog and Magog as the forces that would come against Israel ... now, America is the only country that up to now protects Israel ... if Obama chooses not to come to their aid then ... I feel that if the Yom Kippur war(the Arab’s called the Ramadan War) of 1972 happened during Carter there would be no Israel now ...

He can’t be the anti-Christ because the anti-Christ is the big guy ... in the Revelation of John he speaks of the little horn and the big horn. The little horn points to the anti-Christ - so maybe Obama is the little horn who would point to the big horn who comes out of the middle east ...

Gee, that was my point!

Do you know how many generations have done what you're doing. You can hunker down and wait for the end, but I'll not join you in your interpretation of what's going on.

My God made me capable of thinking.

Amen. As christians, our duty never changes, day in or day out, despite what party is in office, what conditions the economy is, or anything else. We prepare for the rapture - and gather as many souls for christ that we can.

Well it has happened several time since - the last was the Romans who leveled Jerusalem ... then they renamed Israel after their worst enemy the Philistines ... Palestine existed until 1948 when Israel was reborn ...

Thanx. I was looking for a church location today for a client. Ran into the fire near Yorba Linda.

Now I'm 65 miles from the nearest one.

Trust me...I used to teach history. I am VERY aware of Obama’s agenda and I can quickly and clearly see how many of his ideas are simply recycled from others in the past. However, according to the Scriptures, he is not the anti-Christ.

How do you know he isn’t? He sure fits the description and the fact that the world “worships” him practically seems to me a dead giveaway.

Not all the world worships him and He has not made himself any *god* yet.....and don’t believe he will. Other world conditions are not critical enough yet either.

Your focus should be on the mid east for that as well.

However, our concentration should much more importantly be on simply following the Lord each day and responding to His grace for personal holiness.

This is very true. However, true believers will not be fooled. People who ascribe to religious and moral relativism will more and more separate themselves from true believers and form their own *religion* calling it good, progressive, inclusive, etc., etc...

We are on the road to this, but it has not all taken place yet.

I keep wondering about the Ezekiel prophecy and why no country or people like the US is mentioned coming to their aid. With the last election, I'm beginning to see how that could happen. Welcome to life during interesting times.

Rather than focusing on fanatics, they should consider such predictions as reveal Israel to be a major end time player in history, and the fact that (to my knowldge) no nation was ever without it’s homeland for over 2k years, and yet retained a distinct ID, and regained it’s basic homeland, to be a major player in history.

(Zec 12:3) “And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.”

This, and the unique hatred for Israel, and which is a mark of the anti-Christ, provides soe excuse for those who supposed Hitler was him.

Meanwhile, the kind of deception we see today, with half or more of the west affirming homosexuality, and running after Obama like he was the Messiah, makes a certain part the Book of Rev. seem esp. all the more plausible.

(Rev 13:3) “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.”

You can’t more interesting than that! Perhaps every age and generation feels this way, but to me the pace of change feels accelerated and not in a good way, like we are moving towards something. I hope what you read is true; I’m ready now.
