Obama is the Anti-Christ?

My good friend Verle, who is little bit of a Bible nut, sent the text below to me, with comments in (parenthesis). My own comments are in [brackets]. While Obama may yet prove to be evil, I just don't see this chapter in John as applying to him. Still, it's interesting to think about.


John sees fierce-looking beasts which represent degenerate earthly kingdoms controlled by Satan-The devil works miracles and deceives men.

1 I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

(Obama was Born in Hawaii)
[Obama doesn't have seven heads or ten horns. What is the name of blasphemy?]

2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.

[That would make we the people of the US of A the dragon. I don't think so. I'm still more apt to believe the beast is a reference to the UN or the European Union or some similar agency...even OPEC would make more sense to me.]

3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.

(Possible assassination attempt?)

4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

(the sickening display of the "Obama Worshippers" who say he is the great gift to the country)
[I haven't heard any rhetoric that would lead me to believe Obama's foreign policy will be strong enough to prevent anyone from making war against us...in fact, quite the opposite.]

5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.

(Very influential speaker - Obama?)
[One of those 3 1/2 year periods that John was so fond of writing about]

6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.

7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

(the sickening display of the "Obama Worshippers" who say he is the great gift to the country)
[Just doesn't make sense to me]

8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.

10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

(Military Rule)
[Who would this second beast be? I'm not saying this is what I believe, but it makes more sense that the second beast would be Obama. But probably another consortium of countries of some sort]

13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

(Nuclear WAR?)
[I've always wondered if that's the way the Middle East would end up going]

14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

(Need for food Storage)
[or gold/other commodities usable for barter]

18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

[What would this have to do with Obama?]
