Is Obama the Antichrist? Lisa Miller – NEWSWEEK

Is Obama the Antichrist?

The winning lottery number in Illinois was 666, which, as everyone knows, is the sign of the Beast.

Lisa Miller
NEWSWEEK
From the magazine issue dated Nov 24, 2008

On Nov. 5, Todd Strandberg was at his desk, fielding E-mails from around the world. As the editor and founder of RaptureReady.com, his job is to track current events and link them to biblical prophecy in hopes of maintaining his status as “the eBay of prophecy,” the best source online for predictions and calculations concerning the end of the world. Already Barack Obama had drawn the attention of apocalypse watchers after an anonymous e-mail circulated among conservative Christians in October implying that he was the Antichrist. Former “Saturday Night Live” ingénue Victoria Jackson fueled the fire when, according to news reports, she wrote on her Web site that Obama “bears traits that resemble the anti-Christ.” Now Strandberg was receiving up-to-the-minute news from his constituents in Illinois. One of the winning lottery numbers in the president-elect’s home state was 666— which, as everyone knows, is the sign of the Beast (also known as the Antichrist). “It is very eerie, and I take it for a sign as to who he really is,” wrote one of Strandberg’s correspondents.

Ever since Jesus Christ was crucified and, according to the Gospels, rose again in glory, his followers have been anticipating the end of history—the time when their Lord will return to earth and reign for a thousand years. The question has always been when. Most Christians don’t worry about the end too much; it’s an abstract concept, a theological puzzle for late-night pondering. A few, however, have always believed that it is coming—and soon. Millennialist movements, as they’re called, gain prominence especially when the world grows chaotic, during wars and at the turn of every century. According to a 2006 study by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life, a third of white evangelicals believe the world will end in their lifetimes. These mostly conservative Christians believe a great battle is imminent. After years of tribulation—natural disasters, other cataclysms (such as the collapse of financial markets)—God’s armies will vanquish armies led by the Antichrist himself. He will be a sweet-talking world leader who gathers governments and economies under his command to further his own evil agenda. In this world view, “the spread of secular progressive ideas is a prelude to the enslavement of mankind,” explains Richard Landes, former director of the Center for Millennial Studies at Boston University.

No wonder, then, that Obama triggers such fear in the hearts of America’s millennialist Christians. Mat Staver, dean of Liberty University’s law school, says he does not believe Obama is the Antichrist, but he can see how others might. Obama’s own use of religious rhetoric belies his liberal positions on abortion and traditional marriage, Staver says, positions that “religious conservatives believe will threaten their freedom.” The people who believe Obama is the Antichrist are perhaps jumping to conclusions, but they’re not nuts: “They are expressing a concern and a fear that is widely shared,” Staver says.

Before Christ comes again, those who are saved will ascend to heaven, according to this end-times theology, in a huge, upward whoosh called the Rapture. Strandberg is so certain that the Rapture is coming, he’s bought a number of Internet addresses in addition to RaptureReady: AntiAntichrist, Tribulationus and RaptureMe. In the event that RaptureReady crashes during the apocalypse, anyone who needs an update will, with a simple Google search, be able to get one. Strandberg says Obama probably isn’t the Antichrist, but he’s watching the president-elect carefully. On his Web site, he has something called the Rapture Index, a calculation based on signs and prophecy of the proximity of the end. According to Strandberg, any number over 160 means “fasten your seat belts.” Obama’s win pushed the index to 161.

    Will you stop posting on Dec 22nd?

    • Geeper

      No, on December 22 he will explain how the Mayan prophecy is actually off by exactly one month (for some spurious reason), and that the apocalypse (whatever it is) will definitely happen on Obama’s inauguration day of January 21 2013.

      I guarantee this 100%.

      • Dawn

        I’ve noticed he gets a lot of his ideas from our comments.I think I recall you asking him why he hadn’t jumped on the Mayan bandwagon and suddenly we’re being treated to a daily count down.
        I’m sure he hadn’t thought of Jan 21, but now that you’ve mentioned it, we can expect to start seeing him post this date any time now….he’s so unoriginal.

      • Geeper

        It’s probably good that I’ve taught him about psychological projection, which I notice he’s been mentioning since.

      • King of Shambhala

        yeah the mayans.
        Also i saw the russians are all over that story too.
        And there’s a demonstration organizing for the WH so it’s all taking off together.
        Good news.

      • Geeper

        You’re being really lazy on this (your 14th?) apocalypse prediction if you think that “world ends on December 21 2012″ and “demonstration outside White House on January 21 2013″ are somehow “taking off together”.

        You aren’t even underlining four random news stories as the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse! Don’t you care any more?

      • King of Shambhala

        try being more sepcific. I can’t really grasp vague and/or confused comments. I’m not getting the gist of this anymore.

      • Geeper

        I understand. Have you been drinking too much again?

      • King of Shambhala

        request being made for you to answer “Is Obama the Antichrist?”Answer urgently it’s not a difficult question.

      • Mr A Hole - PHD, BSE, HN51, ADHD hons. DVT HIV

        How true, don’t forget he’ll also claim an internal enlightenment that us no one can prove to him otherwise. I actually fear for some peoples minds after the 21st as their whole reason forbeing since they ‘awoke’ has to be prepared for an event of epic proportions. Human beings are such mentally weak creatures if a higher being decides to programme them. Remove a main goal or reason for living for delicate minds and the result could be tragic. Suicidal is not extreme to explain the feelings a person like this will be overcome with, religious or not. We are looking at an awful lot of lost people after the 21st if nothing visible occurs. Think the idea of home based nationals resorting to acts of violence and extreme behaviour and suddenly you have an excuse to lock these people up as a danger to themselves and others. 21st December will simply expose the free radicals to the control element, perhaps this was the plan all along. Fits perfectly into eugenics, agenda 21, mental programming and a national facist state, everywhere. Not to mention 1st the public ridicule that the writers of this kind of article will face. That would enough to break even the strongest mind. To be proved entirely wrong then destroyed in public. A perfect scenario for the PTB unfortunatley and people have fallen right into the trap. How very sad.

      • King of Shambhala

        The Apocalypse will be over before people can realize what happened.
        So they’ll all be surprised. it’ll be over so fast.

    • Geeper

      He’s already urging people to protest at the White House in January 2013. *facepalm*

      http://beforeitsnews.com/prophecy/2012/12/massive-anti-obama-rally-20-days-till-apocalypse-2443436.html

      • Dawn

        So the world will end on the 21st, but we’re supposed to protest in Jan??? So full of contradictions, isn’t he? :lol: :roll:

      • King of Shambhala

        The organisation of the demonstation will be in the midst of the apocalypse.
        It’ll be the backdrop.
        Use your mind for once.

      • Geeper

        Oh, I see, you are playing CLEVER MIND GAMES when you say “We can’t defeat Obama outright because he’s too good at deceit [but] we can defeat him outright by displaying the proof he’s the Antichrist by displaying the proof on our placards.” to your readers. You – WINK WINK – know that Obama will actually be killed (or kill everyone?) in December 2012, but if you talk as if you really want to defeat him in January and have a solid plan for that defeat, he will be wrong-footed when… wait, no, this is fading, pass the bottle.

      • King of Shambhala

        clever mind games.
        Answer the question fast.
        Is Obama the Antichrist or what?

      • Geeper

        So when you appear to be massively ignorant, it is a CLEVER MIND GAME. I see. It is almost as if you are… trolling?

      • King of Shambhala

        This place is history.

        19 days left.

        Hurry fast and spread the good news of the revelation.

      • Geeper

        It’s like trolling, but less intelligent.

      • Dawn

        “The Apocalypse will be over before people can realize what happened.
        So they’ll all be surprised. it’ll be over so fast.”

        “The organisation of the demonstation will be in the midst of the apocalypse”

        So the Apocalypse is going to last a month? Thats hardly what I would call, being over before people can realize what happened.

      • King of Shambhala

        read the Bible.
        the Apocalypse lasts seven years.
        Dumbo don’t even read ur own Bible.

      • Dawn

        “The Apocalypse will be over before people can realize what happened.
        So they’ll all be surprised. it’ll be over so fast.”

        Maybe you should read the Bible, and not just Wikipedia…you’re the one that said it would happen so fast people wouldn’t realize what was happening.
        You play so many mind games, Geir…I don’t mind though, I get a laugh out of you every time.

  • Awakenow2

    Geir, if you are who you say, reveal this mystery from revelation to us, I mean tell us what it means. If you can do this, I will reconsider your claim.
    Revelation 16:12-14
    King James Version (KJV)

    12 And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.

    13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

    14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

  • Mayhem

    @ No one in any way.

    Best thing about being a Meth Head? Only 3 more sleeps till the end of the world. :lol:

    • King of Shambhala

      The question is this.
      Seeing we have only 19 days tiill Apocalypse.
      Is Obama the Antichrist?

      • Dawn

        Lets see, considering you have made countless failed Apocalypse predictions, I’d say it safe to assume you’re wrong about Obama….no he isn’t.

    • King of Shambhala

      Middle: “is Obama the Antichrist?” It’s not a difficult question. Even backwards retards like you can answer it.

      • Sonny Jim

        Since you have been stealing insults, I think we should help you out with some freebies.
        how about..donut bumper, butt pirate, peter puffer.. instead of “your a gay”
        Or..dumb as a bag of hammers, couple short of a six pack..instead of”your stupid”
        And you got beat with an ugly stick, a face only a mother could love, etc.. instead of “your ugly”

        Remember simple words=Simple minds
        like yours!

      • Mayhem

        Boo!

      • King of Shambhala

        sounds like you guys are gays like your god Obama.
        He loves that butt.
        Like you seem to love it.

  • Mayhem

    Middle-aged-Mayhem would like to draw Mr Smiths attention to Awakenow2′s post asking for enlightenment regarding Revelation 16:12-14.

    Middle-aged-Mayhem noticed the verb frog and recalled that Mr Smith is French.

    Oh my goodness!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :shock:

    • King of Shambhala

      I reveal the Antichrist.

      Break the Apocalypse.

      And reveal the Revelation, that’s all, end of case.

      • Geeper

        Yep, your apocalypse is definitely broken, sir.

      • King of Shambhala

        - 18 Days Left Till The End

        Repent and get ready. There’s one way alone, to gain heaven and that’s to join the Messengers of the Apocalypse. Their job is to throw all sinners into hell. (Bible) Also, they reveal the Apocalypse, which is the truth that Obama is the Antichrist. The Messengers who will gain heaven, are those who are relentless in spreading that good news worldwide, even to the Far East, China and the Pacific Rim.

  • wwwchronos

      • King of Shambhala

        We’ll bust Obama before time.
        The Apocalypse is awsome.
        Hits without warning.

      • Dawn

        Such a foolish old man. You actually believe you can “bust” Obama with your antichrist nonsense…maybe if we we’re living in 1612 and people feared such stuff because they didn’t know any better.

  • Blackie the faithful border collie

    Love that f’king shambles la, pure hellfire, there will and you cant, even, let alone try to get it, scintilla head.

    • King of Shambhala
