By now, you would have noticed I am an avid fan of the end time study. It is extraordinarily amazing to see the similiarity of events happening as compared to what was written thousands of years ago.
The swearing in of the Obama presidency yesterday kept me wondering of how close this is to paving the way for another who is to come when Obama's popularity diminishes. It never happened before in history that so much attention and anticipation the world over had on Obama, a mere man. He has not even done anything yet. I believe strongly that the world looks at his personality, his way with words, charisma, poise, aura, all gushing out from him more than the world's issues at hand.
I don't want to sound pessimistic as I am also atttracted to him simply by his eloquence of words. He has inspired millions across the globe. I believe he will begin well and when the problems get bigger, the world will start looking for another to come.
And that person could be the Anti Christ that the Bible talks about. If Obama can get this kind of attention world wide, then AntiChrist would be even more famous.
Let us look at some verses in the Bible concerning this guy who is soon to come...
(2 Th 2:3-4) Don't let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God's temple, proclaiming himself to be God. (NIV)
(Rev 13:7-8) He was given power to make war against the saints and to conquer them. And he was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast--all whose names have not been written in the book of life belonging to the Lamb that was slain from the creation of the world. (NIV)
(Dan 7:25) And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. (KJV)
(Dan 11:36) And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done. (KJV)
Notice that AntiChrist will speak eloquently and he will be very very convincing!
Therefore, be alert and be sober. Jesus always reminds his disciples to keep watch! Do not go googoogaagaa over the hoohoohaahaa in Barack Obama presidency.
