How Obama is conditioning the world for the upcoming antichrist

Two days ago I wrote about how the ever-working Jesus has brought the economy, religion, and the moral heart of society so close to the point of being ready for the final fulfillments of the prophesied Tribulation period conditions. Like an iceberg, we don't see is the bulk of the structure, but we see only the tip. However, the tip has grown to and through the surface that even secular people are noticing that things are not only not quite right, but very, very wrong. Polls show that more people believe we are headed in the wrong direction. That our world governments are not up to the task of solving today's problems. The wealth gap is obscenely wide. And more.

All these things are evident to the discerning Christian's eye. Something else that was immediately evident is that there is something of the prophetic in Obama.

When he burst upon the scene in 2007, it was immediately apparent that Obama was unlike any other politician the modern world has seen, except maybe Hitler. He was so strange and his aura of charm and likability so strong that people openly asked if he was the antichrist. Many Christians' spiritually negative views of Obama were realized when he began operating in the White House. His policies, his statements, and attitude toward law, order, and right living confirmed that their initial spiritual uneasiness about him indeed had a basis. They are examples of what is yet to come. But they are also preparing the way for what is to come by conditioning people to give up their rights for the so-called greater good.

Though Obama probably is not the antichrist, I and many others believe that he is a kind of forerunner. A Pastor friend of mine stated it succinctly last night:

"Did you see Bill O'Reilly's brief interview with Robert Jeffress earlier this week? Pastor Jeffress concisely stated his belief regarding President Obama's influence on the future. While Jeffress' book was written to those who are curious about what is going to happen in the future, his comments [two paragraphs] about President Obama's unwitting role of preparing the mindset of Americans for a future world dictator has drawn a lot of attention."

The only remark I would make about my wise pastor friend's comment is that it's my opinion that Obama's role in the satanic set-up for coming Tribulation conditions is not unwitting.

He was referring to an interview on Fox, where Jeffress said,

"There’s going to be a future world dictator, before Christ returns, who’s going to usurp people’s personal …rights. …He’s going to wage war against God’s people, he’s gonna change God’s laws and he’s going to do it without any opposition. And my question was, how’s he going to be able to pull that off? And my thesis is, people will have been conditioned long before the Antichrist comes to accept governmental overreach. And that’s what you’re seeing with President Obama right now.

Here is a lengthier interview than the brief one on Fox News, excerpted from the Christian Post (CP):

"Robert Jeffress on Revelation, President Obama's Role in End Times Prophecy and Motivating Christians to Share the Gospel (Part I)"

"Pastor Robert Jeffress, senior pastor of the 11,000-member First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas, has released a new book, Perfect Ending: Why Your Eternal Future Matters Today, that cuts through the misconceptions about end times prophecy and God's judgment, and answers questions about heaven. It also answers why Christians should be actively sharing the Gospel with nonbelievers.

CP: In your book, you mention that President Barack Obama's policies and political agenda is paving the way for a future world dictator. Can you provide a couple examples of those policies?

Jeffress: Those are probably the two paragraphs in the book that have garnered the most national attention. I want to be very clear, I am not claiming that President Obama is the Antichrist. In fact, I'm absolutely certain he is not the Antichrist. The reason I can say that is the Bible indicates the Antichrist will have higher poll numbers. But I do believe that the president is paving the way for a future world dictator.

The Bible says the seven years of history before the coming of Christ will be characterized by this world dictator that we commonly call the Antichrist. He will usurp people's basic freedoms, such as speech, worship and commerce. He will launch an attack against God's people. And he will seek to change God's moral law, according to Daniel 7:25. And he will be able to accomplish all of these things with little to no opposition – at least at the beginning.

Jeffress then gave examples of several foundational policies Obama has instituted that directly pave the way for the future world dictator, and Jeffress concluded with this:

"This is what I'm saying: The president is both illustrative of, but he's also preparing the way for the coming world dictator. Now, let me be very clear and say that I do not believe that President Obama kneels before an altar of Satan in the Oval Office every day – I'm not saying that at all. But I am saying that what he is doing now is preparing the way for this future dictator."

Obama's success is not contained in this policy or that law. It is not the minutiae of Obamacare or even his lies misstatements. It is that he got a majority of the United States citizenry to capitulate their hearts and minds to an obviously evil government entity, and in so doing, set the example to the world on how to do it. He claimed the minds of people, and manipulated them far down the path that satan wants them to go.

Please read the interview linked above. Pastor Jeffress was equally adamant that we as Christians have the unique perspective of being able to see the future, and so should share the Gospel with verve and haste. Time is running out.

  1. I was always surprised how many Christians were fooled by this wolf in sheep's clothing. Even after all the damage he's done in office, many of these people still support Obama. I don't get it.

  2. Here we are in 2014 and still no rapture.

    Maybe we don't know it but we're just waiting for the antichrist to show up.

    1. Less than 20 years after the Lord ascended, the Thessalonians were wondering about the rapture too. They expected it in their lifetime and since some of their friends were dying, they asked Paul if their friends had missed it. Paul said no. (1 Thess 4:13)

      So it's 2014...this means the Lord's return is even CLOSER than in 51 AD when the Thessalonians asked!

      have no fear, He will return. Time is of no matter, a thousand years is as a day and a day is like 1000 years. (2 Peter 3:8). The Lord is not slack... 2 Peter 3:8

      The Day of the Lord Will Come

      3 This is now the second letter that I am writing to you, beloved. In both of them I am stirring up your sincere mind by way of reminder, 2 that you should remember the predictions of the holy prophets and the commandment of the Lord and Savior through your apostles, 3 knowing this first of all, that scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own sinful desires. 4 They will say, “Where is the promise of his coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all things are continuing as they were from the beginning of creation.” 5 For they deliberately overlook this fact, that the heavens existed long ago, and the earth was formed out of water and through water by the word of God, 6 and that by means of these the world that then existed was deluged with water and perished. 7 But by the same word the heavens and earth that now exist are stored up for fire, being kept until the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly.

      8 But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9 The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you,[a] not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. 10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies[b] will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.[c]

      11 Since all these things are thus to be dissolved, what sort of people ought you to be in lives of holiness and godliness, 12 waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be set on fire and dissolved, and the heavenly bodies will melt as they burn! 13 But according to his promise we are waiting for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.

    2. I believe we may very well see the Rapture in 2014. The anti-Christ and false prophet are in place. There are 4 blood moons coming with a full solar eclipse right in between. The blood moons are significant. The first falls on April 15th, about the same time Obama has given Israel to get a peace treaty together or else. It also falls on passover. The next falls on pentecost. All 4 blood moons fall on Jewish holy days. We cannot know the DAY nor the HOUR but Jesus tells we will know when it's near, even at the door. I hear his hand on the doorknob. Can you hear it?

  3. I could not agree more with both you and the pastors. The arrogance of BHO prevents him from ever considering himself a pawn in "anyones" hands - be they d-evil or man-iac. But like Dr. J said,; swallow and follow will be the name of the game for the masses in years to come - share we must, but it is hard to explain a sunset to a blind man.

  4. We need to remember that God is in control,

    "Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?" (Genesis 18:25)

    "...God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another..." (Psalm 75:7)

    "By me kings reign, and princes decree justice. By me princes
    rule,and nobles, even all the judges of the earth." (Proverbs 8:15-16)

    "...he removeth kings, and setteth up kings..." (Daniel 2:21)

    "...the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men." (Dan. 4:17)

    God "...worketh all things after the counsel of his own will." (Ephesians 1:11)

    It is not so much "How Obama is conditioning the world for the upcoming antichrist" but rather, how God is conditioning the world for the return of His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ.

  6. I just cannot understand how the Bible can give so many clues to WHO the anti-CHRIST will be and yet, no one seems to connect the dots. Let me remind you of some of the characteristics that God says he will have - he will be a WILLFUL KING, he will be a great liar, deceiver, he will be charismatic, a great speaker. The anti-Christ will be in love with himself. He will exhalt himself, he will prosper while in office, he will blaspheme God and the Saints, he will change God's laws, he will come from obscurity ... out of the shadows. He loves power, force, he will be narsistic and do his own will. No one can stop him. He has no regard for women. And the kicker ... HE WILL DIVIDE THE LAND AND GIVE IT TO ISRAEL'S ENEMIES. WHO DOES THIS SOUND LIKE?
    It is my opinion, that he is too egotistic, too in love with himself to ever give anyone the position which he now has. Give up his power? NO WAY!!!
    Obama is not going anywhere. If he were, he would have already done so. Nixon was impeached for just bugging the democratic headquarters. Clinton was impeached for lying one time under oath. Petty compared to what Obama has done and is doing. How about his 'civilian army' he wants and is now building? Why does he need that? 3.5 billion rounds of bullets purchased? Spying, corruption, deceit, arrogance. He is paving the path for NO ONE, because he is already there. Why would God give us so many clues if he did not want us to recognize the man of perdition once he came onto the scene. My opinion, if I were Lucifer, I would want my son to rule the most powerful country in the world and then destroy it. Why? Because America would have been the only country that could have made war with the beast. Kissinger among others, have already admitted they are priming Obama to lead the new world order. And if you think the anti-Christ comes out of the EU, yes, you'd be correct, in fact Obama already has a seat in the UN, the EU. So, open your eyes to what God's description of the anti-Christ will be and then ask yourself, does Obama fit the role? I would have to say, ABSOLUTELY.

    1. Hi Anonymous,

      While Obama fills some or all of the details of the characteristics of the antichrist, so have many other world leaders past and present. Hitler did, Nebchadnezzar did. Alexander the Great did. Gaddafi did. Anyway, 2 Thess 2:8 says he is not going to be revealed until the abomination of desolation, so it's no use speculating and it's certainly not an absolute that Obama is the antichrist.

    2. You're absolutely correct. There has been other anti-Christ before Obama, however, Israel was not a nation during Hitler or Alexander the Great. Nor Stalin, Mao, or any other dictator. Also, we know their history. We know where they come from but we know nothing about Obama. He has paid millions to keep it secret. And Hitler did not try to divide Jerusalem as the Bible says the end times anti-Christ will do but Obama is. In fact, he told Netenyahu either have a peace treaty done by December 31st [this past year] or "I will force you into one." See, the difference between Obama and all the anti-Christ before is Obama has ALL the characteristics. Geeezz, his favorite book is Sal Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals" and he is following it to a tee. But did you know this book is dedicated to LUCIFER. Yep, his favorite book is one dedicated to the devil. No other anti-Christ could have been the END TIMES ONE but Obama can and most likely is.
      God bless

    3. Oh and one more thing, please read again the characteristics of the anti-Christ and then match how Hitler, etc. had. Hitler loved women, therefore not a characteristic. Hitler was not charismatic. People feared him. They never called him a Messiah as many call Obama today. Yes, they sang songs about him and some worshipped him but Hitler never changed God's laws. Read some of the 33 characteristics. Again, Obama has ALL ALL ALL of them. And since we are in the end times, and Israel is once again a nation, well, there you go.

  7. Wow, this was great! It's amazing how quickly things are moving. Just 15-20 years ago it was still hard to understand how the antichrist could pull off what he will accomplish, and now it is easy to see. It is beyond exciting to see the LORD fulfilling His Word before our very eyes, knowing that the Day must be drawing near!
