Many who follow Bible Prophecy have questioned if US President Obama is the Antichrist. There is a general feeling among some Evangelical Christians and Conservatives that he is the Antichrist. Obama is not the Antichrist because Bible Prophecy specifically states that the Beast. i.e. the government, which launches the Antichrist, rises from the Mediterranean sea which is modern Europe. Daniel 9:26 specifies that the people of the prince that shall come and destroy the second Jewish Temple will be the same people that the Antichrist will rise to power from. We know this to be the Romans because it was the Romans who destroyed the Temple in a.d.70.
If the Antichrist is going to rise from the EU and US President Obama is not the Antichrist, the question is does Obama have a role in Bible Prophecy, and if he does what is his role? Yes, he does have a role, US President Obama is paving the way for the Antichrist. How is he preparing the way? The EU is going to become the greatest world empire the world has ever known. More powerful than the US or any of the ancient world empires, from the Babylonian to the Greek and Romans. I state in my book that it is a matter of deduction that if the EU is going to rise to this great empire status that the US will loose its place in the lead in the global pecking order. The other observation by Bible Prophecy watchers who are familiar with prophecy in the Bible is that they do not see the United States in Bible Prophecy, i.e. the final lineup of empires Bible Prophecy forecasts.
There is a new multipolar world emerging. Former Beligan Prime Minister and EU Parliamentarian Guy Verhofstadt calls this new world “the age of empires” and stated that America’s power will crumble, thereby shifting the balance of power. The weight of other nations and blocks (China, India, Russia, Brazil and of course the EU will increase.
While the US deficit and other problems within the US started long before President Obama, and each president made their contribution, Obama’s role is that he will be the president to tip the scales, i.e bring about the final demise of the United States. When this crash occurs it will have such an effect around the globe, that the climate will be ripe for a world leader with the solutions to the global catastrophe created by the US. Since Obama is helping hasten the US’s demise by his policies, he is preparing the way for the Antichrist. From his stimulus package, to his health care plan, to his foreign policy, he is a loose cannon throwing fuel on America’s problems, especially the deficit.
The EU is committed to strengthening itself as both a political power and an economic block to face global, financial and economic challenges. When the US dollar quake hits and causes the economic tsunami around the world, the EU will be better positioned to remedy the problem. From this point we will see the EU take up the torch from the US as the leading empire and further aligning with Bible Prophecy.
