Spirit of Antichrist Rising

Timothy Birdnow

Brian forwards this piece from Newsmax as yet more evidence that Obama is a top candidate for the position of AntiChrist.

According to the article:


"African bishops attending a Vatican meeting are speaking about the election of Barack Obama in divine terms -- putting them very much at odds with many of their U.S. counterparts.


Archbishop Gabriel Charles Palmer-Buckle of Accra, Ghana said Wednesday that there was "a divine plan behind" Obama's election.


"It's like the biblical story repeating itself," he told reporters, citing the Old Testament figure Joseph, who after being sold into slavery in Egypt ends up becoming a top official.


"We believe God has his own plans. God directs history," he said of the U.S. election. "We pray that it (Obama's presidency) brings blessings for Africa and the whole world."


He acknowledged that Obama has earned the wrath of many conservative American bishops because of his support for abortion rights. Earlier this year, dozens of U.S. bishops denounced the leading U.S. Catholic university, Notre Dame, for giving Obama an honorary degree.


[...]

And the archbishop of Kinshasa, Congo, Monsignor Laurent Monsengwo Pasinya, told the formal synod itself that it would be wise to not ignore what he called a "primordial event" in recent times.


"If the election of a black as head of the United States of America was a divine sign and a sign from the Holy Spirit for the reconciliation of races and ethnic groups for peaceful relations ... this synod and the universal church would gain from not ignoring this primordial event of contemporary history which is far from being a banal game of political alliances," he said in his speech."

End excerpts.

A few thoughts on the matter:

1John/2-18 "Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour."

Matthew 24:24 "For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect."

1 Timothy 4:1 "But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons,"

Daniel 11:38 "But instead he will honor a god of fortresses, a god whom his fathers did not know; he will honor him with gold, silver, costly stones and treasures."


Daniel 11:39 "And he shall deal with the strongest fortresses by the help of a foreign god: whosoever acknowledgeth him he will increase with glory; and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for a price."


1 John 4:1 "Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world."

Too many in our world are looking for a strong king, a ruler to whom they can willingly subject themselves, one in whom to BELIEVE and not just follow rationally. This transcends rationality; it is about worship. Man has rejected God in favor of a Man-centered religiousity, and that necessitates the elevation of a man to divinity, because Man as an abstract does not satisfy (worship of a man does not either, but it gives a symbol to rally around).  What we are seeing with Obama, who believes absolutely in the power of Man and his church - the State, is the coalescing of this false religion. There is an idolatry that is sweeping the world - even inside of the Church - and while Obama may not be THE antichrist, he is certainly a forshadowing, a John the Baptist of the Beast, if you will. 

It horrifies me to read such things; the glory due God is being given to a man, freely and joyously. And this man comes representing dark and sinister forces; the Chicago political and organized crime machine, the extreme Left, domestic terrorists, etc. He seeks to change times and laws:

Daniiel 7-25'He will speak out against the Most High and wear down the saints of the Highest One, and he will intend to make alterations in times and in law; and they will be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time."

Isn't that precisely what this Administration is doing? Obama consecrates America to Islam, calling us a Muslim nation. He explodes in a hurricane of activity, desperately trying to change our laws and times. He hopes to exhaust his political enemies.

And yet people throughout the world offer praise and honor to him as though he were divinely ordained, or just plain old divine.

The spirit of antichrist is rising.
