Is Donald Trump the ‘third Antichrist’ or not the final Antichrist at all?

Portrait of Nostradamus by his son Cesar


There have been several scattered reports that Donald Trump is supposedly the “third antichrist” that the French seer Nostradamus prophesied. Here is one such report:

Nostradamus Prophecy: The Third Antichrist

Another prophecy by Nostradamus stated that the third Antichrist could rise in 2016. This rise could actually result in the beginning of World War 3 – a nuclear war or biological warfare that really sustain for 27 years. 11/10/16

Nostradamus Predictions 2016: Donald Trump to Cause Apocalypse Through Disastrous Wars?

It is further theorized that Donald Trump is the “third antichrist” predicted by Nostradamus after Napoleon and Hitler. On the writings, it was stated that the third antichrist will cause the apocalypse.

The publication of the Nostradamus prediction 2016 stirred concerns in different social media. Many are getting terrified of the impending war that everyone is dreading may come.

Here is the actual prophecy by Nostradamus, related to the alleged “third antichrist,” followed by what most others claim is the normal translation of it:


L’antechrist trois bien tost annichilez,
Vingt & sept ans sang durera sa guerre,
Les heretiques morts, captifs exilez,
Son corps humain eau rougie gresler terre.

The antichrist very soon annihilates the three,
twenty-seven years his war will last.
The unbelievers are dead, captive, exiled;
with blood, human bodies, water and red hail covering the earth.

Some disagree with that translation and claim that Nostradamus predicted three “antichrists.” Here is one such alternative translation:

The third Antichrist, the third to come, gets annihilated,
His war shall last for twenty seven years,
The heretics are all dead; all of the prisoners are now exiled,
His body (the Antichrist) has reddened the waters, and the earth has been scorched.

Irrespective of what Nostradamus may have intended, the reality is that Donald Trump is NOT going to be waging wars for 27 years, nor will the final Antichrist wage war for 27 years.

Furthermore, contrary to the views of some, World War III is not going to start prior to 2021 (see also World War III: Steps in Progress).

Now there are some interesting writings from Nostradamus that some believe are related to Donald Trump. Notice one:

Century 1:40

The false trumpet concealing madness will cause Byzantium to change its laws. From Egypt there will go forth a man who wants the edict withdrawn, changing money and standards. (Michel de Nostredame. The Complete Prophecies of Nostradamus., 2015. pp. 38-39)

Notice how some have interpreted the above:

Theorists believe that the “False trumpet concealing madness” is Trump and that the reference to Byzantium – an Ancient Greek colony – could be linked to the influx of refugees coming through Greece. (Maloney A. ‘THE GREAT SHAMELESS, AUDACIOUS BAWLER’ Donald Trump’s victory was predicted by Nostradamus who said it would bring about the end of the world, say conspiracy theorists. The Sun, November 11, 2016)

But perhaps a better interpretation, if relating this to Donald Trump, would be that Donald Trump intends to change international arrangements and trade deals and will withdraw from the Paris climate change agreement.

That being said, no, Donald Trump, though antichrist in various ways, will NOT be the final Antichrist.

How can I be so certain?

Because of what the Bible teaches.

Let’s examine the only four verses in the Bible that specifically mention “antichrist,” starting with 2 John 7:

7 For many deceivers have gone out into the world who do not confess Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist (2 John 7).

This scripture says that antichrists are deceivers “who do not confess Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh.” Does this verse allude to a leader that is simply not acknowledging that there was a person named Jesus?

This seems highly unlikely, as even most atheists acknowledge there was one referred to as Jesus Christ who lived in the flesh. This doctrine of Antichrist might have something to do with not actually believing a member of the Godhead actually emptied Himself of His divinity to become human (even though that is what happened according to Philippians 2:6–7) and/or not humbling oneself to truly accept Christ to live His life in their flesh. This is a doctrine that certain faiths officially adopted because of the Council of Constantinople in 381 A.D.

John also wrote the following related to Antichrist:

1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. 3 And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world (1 John 4:1–3).

This scripture similarly states that the “spirit of Antichrist” is not confessing that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh. It also shows that some of Antichrist’s teachings began when John was still alive.

These verses specifically tie in the idea that false prophets have the spirit of Antichrist. Thus, it would seem consistent with these passages to conclude that the final Antichrist would or could be a false prophet (which is a term that John uses later in the Book of Revelation 16:3).

In addition, John also wrote:

18 Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour. 19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us. 20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things. 21 I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and that no lie is of the truth. 22 Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son (1 John 2:18–22).

These scriptures show that while there will be a final Antichrist, even since John’s time, there have been pretended/false believers–these are religious people, not secular leaders.  These passages also state that if people were true believers, they would have continued with John’s practices.

All the verses in the Bible that use the term antichrist or antichrists are referring to religious leaders or people in a religious context.  The final Antichrist will not be a USA political leader like Donald Trump.

That being said, inadvertently, I do expect that Donald Trump will take actions and/or make statements that will help enable the rise of the final Antichrist.

That final Antichrist is likely to rise up some time in the next decade.
