What is Obama’s Part in Prophecy?
Is Obama the Antichrist? This is an idea, which I have wondered about and tossed back and forth for sometime. Certainly, if he isn’t I knew that he held the spirit of the Antichrist in his bones.
But if Obama isn’t the Antichrist, then what is God’s purpose with him? I believe tonight I have found that purpose. Please let me expound.
In Jeremiah 16:15 (But, The Lord liveth, that brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north, and from all the lands whither he had driven them: and I will bring them again into their land that I gave unto their fathers.) God promises to bring back all the Jews to Israel, from all the countries, which they were dispersed, and in verse 16 (Behold, I will send for many fishers, saith the Lord, and they shall fish them; and after will I send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain, and from every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks.) He vows to do it by sending out fishers and then hunters. What does that mean?
Well, the fishers are people who will bait them back, but since most Jews (especially those who have it so good in America) won’t leave their nice amenities to go back to the Holy Land, and so for that reason has God set forth hunters, who will stalk them with persecution until they volunteer to go back to Israel, where they must be when all things are restored and Christ returns – just as God rounded up the Jews before the Temple was restored and Christ arrived the first time. God works in patterns so we can know this, as Ecclesiastes 1:9 tells us, “The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
What has that to do with Obama you ask? I ran across an article today, which I will add as a source at the end, and which is the basis for this document, that is quite interesting. But first, let me give a little background on the Jews and their history, for those who may not be acquainted with such.
Tisha B’Av or the ninth of Av is an actual day on the Hebrew calendar. It is a day, which the Jews consider to be cursed, and they fast for mercy from God on that day. The reason, which it is considered to be cursed, is that this is the day, in 1312 BC, in which Moses sent twelve scouts out to Israel, from the wilderness, and they (save Joshua and Caleb) returned with evil reports of giants. Thus, they refused the land, which God had promised them because of lack of faith. Since then, terrible things have always happened on that day to render it cursed.
· In 421 BC Nebuchadnezar destroyed the first Temple and 100,000 Jews were killed in the process. The rest were carried away in exile.
· In 70 AD Titus destroyed the second Temple. Over 2,500,000 Jews died at this event due to starvation, disease and war. Another 1,000,000 were carried off in exile and Romans sold 100,000 as slaves. Jews were tortured and killed in Pagan games and celebrations.
· In 132 AD Betra was destroyed and 10,000 Jews were killed.
· In 133 AD Turnus Rufus the Temple site was plundered and Romans built the city of Aelia Capitolina in Jerusalem.
· In 4588 AD Pope Urban II declared the first crusade, in which 10,000 Jews were killed in the first month alone.
· In 1290 AD Jews were expelled from England.
· In 1492 AD Jews were expelled from Spain and Portugal.
· In 1914 AD World War I began. Seventy-five percent of the Jewish population lived in the war zone, and there were 120,000 Jewish casualties as a result.
· In 1942 AD the first Jews were transported to the concentration camp in Treblinka.
· In 1994 AD, AIMA, a Jewish community in Buenos Aires was bombed, killing 86 people and injuring 300 others.
So what does all this have to do with Obama, you ask. Listen up, and I can tell you why this date has significance with Obama.
On July 27, 2004, Obama gave his first speech in Boston, Massachusetts at the Democratic National Convention. Until then, he had largely been a nobody – just a common community organizer, yet when he spoke that seventeen-minute speech, the crowd loved him, and four months later he had won the US Senate seat hands down. It so happens that July 27, 2004 fell on Tisha B’Av that year, so the day, in which Obama gained such popularity, was the day, which the Jews find so cursed.
The article, which I am feeding my information from goes on to tell about the popularity of Hitler and compares the time in which they both grew to be so popular. Obama’s popularity grew in half the time. If anyone has seen another list of similarities circulating about Hitler and Obama, the list is uncanny down to their names being changed, their mothers dying and birth certificates being questioned.
The point is – according to the author of this article; the Jews are in for a ride in America. The similarities between Hitler and Obama are just too coincidental not to be of importance. And the fact that Hitler began his persecution on Tisha B’Av and Obama started his career on Tisha B’Av – that speaks volumes to me.
I sincerely believe with all my heart that Obama is not the Antichrist, though he does have that spirit about him, but that he is one of the hunters, which God has placed in this world to drive the Jews back to their homeland through persecution and tribulation. And the church had better watch out as well, because where the Jews are persecuted, so are the Christians! The Department of Homeland Security has already named Christians as a threat to America! Obama has it out for both, no matter what type of Christian he claims to be. A Christian does not advocate abortion, especially partial birth abortion, nor does he or she support gay marriage, which is against the Law of God.
Beware of this man and those, whom he has working under him.
