Is Antichrist a Jew or a Gentile?

 

 A widely held belief throughout the history of the church has been the notion that Antichrist will be of Jewish origin and this view is still held by some today. But the Bible teaches that Antichrist will be a Gentile.

 

   The major argument for Antichrist being a Jew is that the Jews would only accept a Jew as their Messiah. That the Antichrist is just that, “anti-Christ” and that his career must be a counterfeit of Jesus’ first coming. But while he will in some ways counterfeit Christ, in other ways he will be the exact opposite, especially in his character. Antichrist will be a liar and the greatest murderer in world history. He will blaspheme God and the saints of God. He will be a political leader, an emperor. It takes two men to complete Christ – two beasts. Both are Antichrist – the Beast and his False Prophet – the political ruler and the religious ruler.

 

   Just because the Jews in Israel make a covenant with the Arab nations, brokered by Antichrist, does not mean that they accept him as their Messiah. They only accept him as a Gentile Peacemaker.

 

   The nature of the “times of the Gentiles” – (Lk.21:24) supports a Gentile Antichrist. We premillenialists believe that the period known as the time of the Gentiles does not end until the second coming of Christ and that the Antichrist is the final ruler of the times of the Gentiles. In (Dan.2) the last world emperor before Christ returns is the Antichrist, typified as the feet of iron and clay. All these emperors are Gentile emperors. Antichrist will be a Gentile emperor and arise from within the revived Roman empire, the leg of Nebuchadnezzar’s emperor image dream. In the midst of the Tribulation period, he will take his seat in Israel’s rebuilt temple and claim to be God.

 

   The only true empire today is the U.S. Empire – the Pax Americana. We have 730 military bases in 151 countries and the mightiest military in world history. And we conquered Babylon-Iraq as Media-Persia, Greece and Rome did and our president rules over it. We are the New Babylon of the end days. The U.S. President is king of both Babylons. We killed King Hussein and we elected a president whose middle name is Hussein.

 

   Obama has been called Antichrist by many and on Nov.5th he appointed a Jew named Rahm Israel Emanuel to be his number two man, his chief of staff. Emanuel was born, raised and lives in Chicago where Obama lives. The Chief of Staff is sometimes called “Co-President” and the second most powerful man in the world. Emanuel is a very religious Jew who served as an Israeli soldier as a volunteer. He was also a senior advisor to President Clinton from 1993-98. He directed the details of the Rose Garden ceremony at the White House in 1993 and the signing of the Peace accord between Israel and the PLO with Clinton putting his arms around Rabin and Arafat. Emanuel is well prepared for directing president Obama and helping him broker the comprehensive peace “covenant” between Israel and the Arab nations and fulfilling the prophecy of the President-Antichrist in (Dan.9:27).

 

   Obama’s Muslim name and Jewish chief of staff would help Obama much in achieving this peace with the Mideast covenant. Also Obama’s wife’s cousin is Rabbi Capers Funnye, a prominent black rabbi of a black Hebrew congregation in southwest Chicago. Many black churches have images of a black Christ. Also Obama, if he wanted, could easily have a genealogist trace his roots back to being a Jew. The deluded would easily believe it.

 

   So it is very easy right now to have a black president-Antichrist who is a Gentile member of a so-called church, and suddenly find out he is a Jew. (Although I don’t believe this will happen). I believe we are about to lose our republic and become an empire openly and have our first emperor. We will have an imperial dictatorship. So Obama, with a Muslim name and a member of a Christian church and a Jewish chief of staff and Jewish Rabbi as an in-law has all three faiths covered.

 

   Are you saved and born again in Christ? Born again describes what happens to you when you’re truly saved. You become a new creature in Christ – (2 Cor.5:17). You have a new heart and a new Spirit and your feet walk in new holy paths. Your old man is dead with Christ on the cross and a new man is born. Repent of your sins and believe on Christ in your heart by faith and be baptized by Christ’s Holy Spirit into the true church – (I Cor.12:13). You will conquer death, the first death and the second death in the lake of fire - (Rev.20:15). “The wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” – (Rom.6:23).
