Who Is The Antichrist?

By David J. Stewart

       Who is the Antichrist? This is probably the most controversial question in the world today?

We know that the number of the Beast (the Antichrist) will be 666 (Revelation 13:18). Please notice that 666 is the number of the NAME of the Beast (the Antichrist). I think it is abundantly clear from Revelation 13:16-18 that the number and name of the beast will be incorporated into the mark placed upon people's head and hand, which is 666. It has been known for decades that every store barcode has 666 in it

Who will the Antichrist be or where will he come from?

The Roman Empire?

In the centuries before and after Christ's death, burial and resurrection, the Roman Empire was greatly feared. We learn in the Bible how insane and ruthless Herod was. He ordered his soldiers to slaughter thousands of Jewish boys under age 2 in an attempt to kill Jesus. Herod married his own sister, murdered his own brother, the guy was crazy. In the centuries following Christ's crucifixion, the Roman Empire fed thousands of saints to the lions. Some Christians were killed and turned into human candles. Foxes Book Of Martyrs documents many unspeakable atrocious acts of brutal torture and killing of Christians.

Consequently, early Christians thought that the Antichrist would arise from the brutal Roman Empire. It is not difficult to understand why so many fearful people thought the Antichrist would arise from the Roman Empire, but he didn't. If Paul was speaking of Caesar then he means that Nero was central to last days prophecy. This does not make sense from a Scriptural point of view, for nowhere does the Bible suggest this theory.

The Pope?

The second theory is that the Catholic pope is the Antichrist! It is not difficult to understand why in view of all the brutal persecutions against God's saints throughout the dark ages up until the Reformation period. It is established history that during the INQUISITION tens-of-millions of Christians were murdered. The Roman Catholic Church would continue the brutal persecution against God's saints throughout the dark ages up until the Reformation.

There are those in history who believed that the person spoken of is the Roman Emperor (Caesar) and that the “man of sin” would be revealed in the form of the Papacy (the pope) under the Holy Roman Empire.

President Barack Obama?

President Barack Obama (real name: Barry Sottero) is not the Antichrist, but he is certainly a antichrist. Mr. Obama has broken every campaign promise that he made. The change he said we could count on has become fascist tyranny and overthrow of our republic. The signing of NDAA into law by President Obama on December 31, 2011 was nothing less than 100% treason and betrayal of his oath of office to uphold the U.S. Constitution. Our Bill Of Rights doesn't exist anymore. It used to exist only if you could afford an expensive lawyer to enforce your rights, but NDAA strips away your right to legal representation or trial.

Obama is not the Antichrist, but his abnormal election evidenced the frightening power which one man can have over the public. People wept, shaved his name on their heads, posted billboards with Obama nailed to a cross (as if he were a savior), and literally worshipped him for months before and after the election in 2008. It was scary to see entire classrooms of children singing “Obama Be Thy Name!” The election of Barack Obama proved the media's solid control over the masses. People are easily swayed and influenced, highly impressionable.

A wicked society is biased toward a wicked leader. As the television networks incrementally desensitize the country to sin, they are able to get away with worse and bigger crimes. People don't care anymore because they've lost their faith in God. When you stop trusting God, then you turn to the government for everything. This is what has happened in America today. We have become a Communist nation!

A Jew?

The Antichrist's Father Will Be Jewish...

I think the Antichrist will be a Jew. The Bible teaches that the Antichrist will not honor the God of his fathers. Clearly, this plainly evidences that the Antichrist will then have to be Jewish!

Daniel 11:37-38, “Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all. But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.” If the Antichrist's fathers were Jewish fathers, then obviously he must be Jewish as well.

As you have read in Daniel 8:37-38, the Antichrist's father is Jewish.

The Bible teaches that the most wicked city on earth is Jerusalem. Revelation 11:8, “And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.” Wow, God calls Jerusalem (the city where our Lord was crucified), Egypt and Sodom!!! Pastor Texe Marrs believes that the Antichrist will be a Jew...

Empty Seat Number 666!
