Prophecy in today's headlines

Newsweek – Is Obama the Antichrist?

Newsweek Belief Watch examines the issue.

On Nov. 5, Todd Strandberg was at his desk, fielding E-mails from around the world. As the editor and founder of, 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.

3 responses to Newsweek – Is Obama the Antichrist?

  1. We’re proud to report that the respected world magazine Newsweek has picked up our concerns and written the article “Is Obama the Antichrist?” for their latest issue.

    They have already learned an important lesson: when accusing someone of being the instigator of the Apocalypse, use questions instead of statements. All you need do is put the thought in discerning people’s minds–they’re smart enough to begin worrying about it all on their own without the potentially litigious use of statements like “________ is the Antichrist.”

    Bravo to Newsweek for taking the difficult but correct stance of using their magazine to raise such important questions about our world leaders. We appreciate their supportive effort to our cause and we will continue on with our goal of exposing potential Antichrists right here, on

  2. obama isn’t the antichrist- he fits maybe only a few of the characteristics. he does, however, fit the description of the false prophet. the false prophet will rise first, before the antichrist. then at the abomination of desolation, the antichirst will revel itself. plese, please, please.. dont go spreading it around that obama is the antichrist because he’s obviously not.

    here’s the antichrist’s characteristics:

    1. He comes from among ten kings in the restored Roman Empire; his authority will have similarities to the ancient Babylonians, Persians, and Greeks [Daniel 7:24; Rev 13:2 / Daniel 7:7]

    2. He will subdue three kings [Daniel 7:8, 24]

    3. He is different from the other kings [Daniel 7:24]

    4. He will rise from obscurity…a “little horn” [Daniel 7:8]

    5. He will speak boastfully [Daniel 7:8; Rev 13:5]

    6. He will blaspheme God, [Daniel 7:25; 11:36; Rev 13:5] slandering His Name, dwelling place, and departed Christians and Old Testament saints [Rev 13:6]

    7. He will oppress the saints and be successful for 3 ½ years [Daniel 7:25; Rev 13:7]

    8. He will try to change the calendar, perhaps to define a new era, related to himself [Daniel 7:25]

    9. He will try to change the laws, perhaps to gain an advantage for his new kingdom and era
    [Dan 7:25]

    10. He will not be succeeded by another earthly ruler, but by Christ [Daniel 7:26-27]

    11. He will confirm a covenant with “many”, i.e. the Jewish people [Daniel 9:27]
    This covenant will likely involve the establishment of a Jewish Temple in Jerusalem
    [see Dan 9:27; Matt 24:15]

    12. He will put an end to Jewish sacrifice and offerings after 3 ½ years and will set up an abomination to God in the Temple [Daniel 9:27, Matthew 24:15]

    13. He will not answer to a higher earthly authority; “He will do as he pleases”[Daniel 11:36]

    14. He will show no regard for the religion of his ancestors [Daniel 11:37]

    15. He will not believe in any god at all [except for himself] [Daniel 11:37]

    16. He will have “no regard for the desire of women”: He will either be asexual or homosexual
    [Dan 11:37]

    17. He will claim to be greater than any god [Daniel 11:37; 2 Thess 2:4]

    18. He will claim to be God [2 Thessalonians 2:4]

    19. He will only honor a “god” of the military. His whole focus and attention will be on his military. He will conquer lands and distribute them [Daniel 11:39-44]

    20. His arrival on the world scene will be accompanied by miracles, signs and wonders [2 Thess 2:9]

    21. Either he, or his companion [The False Prophet], will claim to be Christ [Matt 24:21-28]

    22. He will claim that Jesus did not come in the flesh, or that Jesus did not rise bodily from the grave
    [2 John 7]. He will deny that Jesus is the Messiah [I John 2:22]

    23. He will be worshipped by many people [Rev. 13:8]

    24. He will hate a nation that initially will have some control over his kingdom, but he will destroy this nation [Rev 17:16-18]

    25. He will appear to survive a fatal injury [Rev. 13:3; 17:8]

    26. His name will be related to the number six hundred and sixty six—but not necessarily in an obvious fashion [Rev 13:17-18].

    27. He will be empowered by the devil himself [Rev. 13:2]

    the antichrist will be someone that no one will expect. so many people are focusing on the antichrist… but they are totally forgetting about the false prophet who MUST rise first.

  3. Daniel 11;37 is a reference to abortion. Pro abortion. Mr. Obama is
    Pro-abortion. He is also an apostate according to muslim law. He openly admitted being of muslim background. He also admitted having stepfathers which fulfills this verse: “..he will not honour the god of his fathers..”. The forementioned part of this verse states “..he will not have the desire of women..” Is the desire of women to have children? The Book of Revelation mentions “..beheaded for the testimony of Jesus..”. Which religion can we attribute beheading to?
