The bible shows us many men who were precursors to the antichrist prophesied to arrive at the end of days. These men of past history were a run-up to the real thing. They all share some qualities in common. They made promises to the Jews...and broke them. They were arrogant, rebellious toward God, believed in idols, and tried to cut off the Jews from being a people or Israel from being a nation. Their feelings toward the Jews ranged from oppressively hostile to genocidal. And many of them were megalomaniac tyrants, living richly off the backs of the people they were supposed to protect and defend.
I am speaking of Antiochus IV as one antichrist-type. He sacked Jerusalem and in the space of three days, killed 40,000, and sent another 40,000 into slavery. Herod was another one, as a half-Jew, posing as devout to inculcate the friendliness of the nation, but then thinking nothing in his megalomania of trying to cut off Israel from being a nation by massacring all the boys under the age of two. His lying and duplicity toward the noble Magi was another indicator of his lawlessness.
Nero and Hitler were also antichrist-types. Nero was a run-up to the antichrist in one regard asking people to bow down to him adding himself to their worship, killing Christians who refused. Pharaoh was an antichrist-type. He was king of Egypt, which at that time was similar to being king of the world, as the Antichrist will be. Pharaoh persecuted the Jews mercilessly and had no pity on them in their hard bondage. Pharaoh defied God,saying, "Pharaoh said, "Who is the LORD, that I should obey him and let Israel go? I do not know the LORD and I will not let Israel go." (Ez 5:2)
And now we have Obama. Obama is not the antichrist but he is an antichrist type, closely mirroring Pharaoh. Obama harbors hatred for the Jews, and is oppressing them through silence in the face of persecution, silence in Iran's aggression, and silence at the UN. He lives luxuriously as a Monarch, despite piteous cries from the hungry. He defiantly rebels against the Lord, while pretending devoutness as Herod did. Obama has even been called a Pharaoh three times in his short tenure as President. "Expectations raised by Obama’s brief visit to Cairo are almost messianic. Souvenir shops are selling pendants with the caption “Obama – new Tutankhamen of the world.” (Left, An Egyptian vendor displays a handmade copper plaque reading "Obama, New Tutankhamun of the World" at his shop in the Khan el-Khalili market area in Cairo on Monday.

Obama didn't call himself Messiah, but the name was attributed to him many times, as here "A messiah won’t be landing at the Heliopolis airport Thursday. Nonetheless, the expectations raised by Obama’s brief visit to Cairo are almost messianic."
In another strange case of the Obama-Pharaoh attribution, Obama this time noted the similarity to a Pharaoh hieroglyph himself. While visiting the tomb of Qar in Egypt, Obama saw a hieroglyph on the wall that looked exactly like him. Despite there being present so many other hieroglyphs, Obama noticed this one and pointed to it, saying, "Hey that looks just like me! Look at those ears!" The tour guide leading the group said later that he thinks Obama looks more like King Tut, the famous boy-Pharaoh.
This week, Obama and his wife flew to India for a ten day tour. His jaunt is costing the American taxpayers 200/million a day and he is also taking 34 warships (including 2 aircraft carriers), a fleet of 40 armored limos (20 of them decoys) and taking over the entire luxury hotel in which he decided to stay. The UK Daily Mail noted, "Probably not since the days of the Pharaohs or the more ludicrous Roman Emperors [like Nero??] has a head of state travelled in such pomp and expensive grandeur as the President of the United States of America. While lesser mortals – the Pope, Queen Elizabeth and so on – are usually happy to let their hosts handle most of the security and transport arrangements when they venture beyond their home shores, the United States creates a mini-America on the move to ensure that nothing is left to chance."
Pharaoh. Antichrist-type. We got what we deserved.
