Apparently, someone has come with another “proof” that US President Obama is the final Antichrist:
Did Jesus actually reveal name of the ‘antichrist’?
An American Christian has produced a brief film for YouTube that connects one statement by Jesus in the Gospel of Luke to President Barack Obama.
His 4-minute video focuses on the direct quote: “I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.” (Luke 10:18)“When I started doing a little research, I found the Greek word for ‘lightning’ is ‘astrape’, and the Hebrew equivalent is ‘Baraq‘He then recalled Isaiah 14:14, where Lucifer, another name for Satan, is quoted as saying, “I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.”“I wondered what the word ‘heights’ is,” said ppsimmons, “and I looked it up in the dictionary, and it’s ‘Bamah.’”Thus, on the video, the announcer notes, “If spoken by a Jewish rabbi today, influenced by the poetry of Isaiah, He (Jesus) would say these words in Hebrew … ‘I saw Satan as Baraq Ubamah.’”“I want to emphasize I’m not ashamed of what I put there,” he told WND. “I’m not proclaiming he is the antichrist, or that I’m some kind of a Hebrew expert, but the word associations are indisputable.Full text at: http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=105527
Now, while I do suspect that Barack Obama will help enable the rise of the King of the North and the final Antichrist, he is not the Antichrist.
The fact that Jesus used the term Satan falling as lightning should not be interpreted to mean “the final Antichrist’s name is Barack”. This combination of Hebrew and Greek (which is what Luke used) simply does not support “ppsimmons” assessment–which as he admits is not really based upon an expert knowledge of Hebrew (or likely Greek).
The final Antichrist is primarily a religious, not political, leader.
