For anyone who has studied the events of the end times, it will be quite obvious that we are living in the very last days before the return of the Savior. Just as He lived, He will return to reign and rule. One of the signs of the times is that of false Christs walking among us. The scriptures tell us:
Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. - Matthew 24:23, 24, 26, 27
And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not: For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect. - Mark 13:21-22
And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them. - Luke 21:8
The scriptures are very specific about the details of the times and events surrounding the Lord's return, including the fact that there would be false Christs and false prophets. Some of the false Christs are more obvious and their presence more open than others. One such false Christ that is currently walking among us at the present time is "Maitreya". From the website devoted to Maitreya we read, "In all cultures and religions of the world we can find the belief that one person will bring the unification of religions and fulfill the prophecies. This One is known to the Buddhists as the Compassionate (Maitreya) Buddha or Bodhisattva, to Hindus as the Kalki Avatar, to the Jews and Christians as the Messiah, to the Moslems as Mahdi (Mohammed), to the Baha'is as the One Whom God Shall Make Manifest, etc."
Maitreya - A False Christ
But how do we know that Maitreya or any of the other people running around the world today pretending to be the Messiah constitute the false christs or antichrist prophesied in the scriptures? How do we know that this is the time and these are the days where these events are supposed to be taking place? Let's consider these questions in light of the following statements:
And do not think that these usurpations, intimidations, and impositions are being done to us through inadvertence or mistake; The whole course is deliberately planned and carried out; its purpose is to destroy the Constitution and our constitutional government; then to bring chaos, out of which the new Statism with its slavery is to arise, with a cruel, relentless, selfish, ambitious crew in the saddle, riding hard with whip and spur, a red-shrouded band of night riders for despotism. - J. Reuben Clark, jr., Church News, September 25, 1949
Satan has control now. No matter where you look, he is in control, even in our own land. He is guiding the governments as far as the Lord will permit him. That is why there is so much strife, turmoil, confusion all over the earth. One master mind is governing the nations. It is not the President of the United States... it is not the king or government of England or any other land; it is Satan himself. - Joseph Fielding Smith, Doctrines of Salvation, Vol. 3, pp. 314-315 (published on or before 1954)
Concerning the United States, the Lord revealed to his prophets that its greatest threat would be a vast, worldwide "secret combination" which would not only threaten the United States but also seek to "overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations..." (Ether 8:25) - Ezra Taft Benson, Conference, October 1961
Here we have just a small sampling of the modern voices of warning concerning the fact that Satan was and is controlling the world affairs that will soon overthrow the freedom of all lands and nations of the world. We most assuredly are living in the times and days spoken of here and prophesied by the ancients concerning the antichrist.
Satan's final push has been going on for quite some time and is accelerating every day. When I look at the dates of the quotes above, I think back to the times of the relatively innocent social and moral values of the 1940's and 50's. By way of example, one of the most popular TV shows of the times was "I Love Lucy," which ran from 1951-1957 (before many of us on the planet were even born). In those days, the moral fiber of our society was so strong that even married couples getting ready for bed were shown in full pajamas (with only head, feet, and hands uncovered) and sleeping in separate beds. Even when Lucy became pregnant, they did not use the word "pregnant" on the show.
Now, compare that to our modern light porn public television programming that becomes more immoral with each new season. Then apply that same comparison of then-to-now to visualize how much more control Satan must have over the affairs of the world today, especially the world leaders compared to back when we actually had an honorable, moral, God fearing society!
In the past, as I contemplated these scriptures, I envisioned these false Christs to come upon the scene much like Maitreya. He even dresses like what you might expect a returning Christ to look like, complete with robes and sandals. Clearly, he is a false Christ, but very limited in the reach of his message and the sphere of his influence. There are others at the present time that are much more charismatic and hypnotic to their followers than I believe Maitreya to be. However, in saying that it is important to note that there are many globalist, both past and present who refer to the returning messiah as "Maitreya." However, the name may be more symbolic than literal.
There are many lesser false Christs who claim some form or fashion of deity. They can be seen in various aspects of our culture, particularly in the entertainment industry. A couple of the most recognizable false Christs are the singers Jay Z and Beyonce. Jay Z's stage name is "HOVA", short for "JEhova." Beyonce makes similar claims, but I won't spend a lot of time on them, because as I said, they are the "lesser of the evils."
Perhaps the biggest and most recognizable false Christ is Barack Obama. In the following video clip, Hollywood entertainer Jamie Foxx introduces Barack Obama as "our God, our Lord and Savior". Notice the reaction of the crowd when he blasphemes against the true Lord and Savior. True to ancient prophecy, the crowd not only doesn't object to such blasphemy, they clap, cheer, and dance as the false Christ is introduced.
Jamie Foxx says, "Obama is Our God, Our Lord and Savior"
In the following video clip, Oprah Winfrey introduces then Senator Obama to voters in Des Moines. This introduction is identical to introductions given at other political rallies by Winfrey. She begins by relating a story from "The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman," a 1974 film based on Ernest Gaines' 1971 novel. As she explains to the waiting crowd, an old woman who had survived slavery and the Civil war would ask every newborn child, "Are you the one? Are you the one?"
According to one academic discussion of the book by Christopher Mulvey, a professor at University of Winchester in the United Kingdom, the passage continues to ask whether the child is the one who will "carry part of our cross," a "messianic figure."
Winfrey goes on to tell the audience, "In '08 I have found the answer to Miss Pittman's question. I have found the answer... it is the same question that our nation is asking, "Are you the one? Are you the one?" I'm here to tell you Iowa, he's the one! He is the one!" Again, notice the reaction of the crowd to the blasphemy spewed out of Oprah Winfrey's mouth!

Watch in the following clip at about the 26 second mark and through 38 seconds. You will hear Obama reassure the audience that contrary to the rumors, he was not born in a manager. He goes on to say that he was sent to save the planet earth. These comments along with those of the next video clip will be useful later in this analysis.
Obama denies Christ as the Savior, claims he is
Watch the following video clip at about the 10 second mark and through 15 seconds. You will see Obama state that he (and his team) are the one's we've been waiting for. These comments along with those of the previous clip will be useful later in this analysis.
Obama says he's the one we've been waiting for
In the following video clip, Louis Farrakhan, head of the "Nation of Islam," declares the he is God and Obama is the Messiah. Notice the reaction of the crowd and the various images of Obama portrayed as the Messiah.
Louis Farrakhan declares he is God, Obama is Messiah
In the following clip, Louis Farrakhan, head of the "Nation of Islam," declares that Obama is the Messiah.
Louis Farrakhan declares Obama is Messiah
It is also important to understand how the Arab and Muslim world sees Obama. As is evidenced by the videos above, Obama is seen and revered as a Messiah. After Obama's speech in 2009 in which he apologized for America's existence, the Arab world began to see him as the promised warrior, a "Mahdi" who will lead Islam to victory over the infidels (everyone who is not Muslim) in the last days (people all over the world recognize that these are the last days).
The Egyptian press heralded him as "Obama the Awaited" in a giant front page headline, drawing parallels to the Mahdi, who in Muslim estacheology is believed to appear before the end of days as a Savior, as the second coming of Christ.
Iranian Shiite prophecies also are being grafted onto Obama as a Messiah to the Muslim world. According to a Shiite Hadith (tradition) that describes a "Promised Warrior" a tall black man will assume power in the West and herald the fall of the West and the victory of Islam to conquer the world.
The tradition comes from Bahar al-Anvar (meaning Oceans of Light) by Mullah Majlisi, a magnum opus in 132 volumes and the basis of modern Shiite Islam. According to the tradition, Imam Ali Ibn-Talib (the prophet's cousin and son-in-law) prophesied that at the End of Times and just before the return of the Mahdi, the Ultimate Savior, a "tall black man will assume the reins of government in the West." Commanding "the strongest army on earth," the new ruler in the West will carry "a clear sign" from the third imam, whose name was Hussein Ibn Ali. The tradition concludes: "Shiites should have no doubt that he is with us."
In a curious coincidence, Obama's first and second names - Barack Hussein - mean "the blessing of Hussein" in Arabic and Persian. His last name, Obama, written in the Persian alphabet, reads "O Ba Ma," which means "he is with us," the magic formula in Majlisi's tradition. Obama's rise is seen as another sign of the West's decline and the triumph of Islam.
If I connect those dots, I get "the blessing of Hussein - the Ultimate Savior - he is with us." Isaiah said that the Son of God, the true Savior of the world would be called Immanuel (Isaiah 7:14), meaning "God is with us." If I connect those dots, I get "the Son of God - the True Savior - God is with us." It is hard to miss the unmistakable anti-christ innuendoes and outright blasphemous claims of Obama and his minions to his claim of deity.
On June 4, 2009 Obama gave an unprecedented speech to the Muslim world from Cairo, Egypt declaring that he is launching a new era between the United States and the Muslim world. For the first time, Obama was forthright about his Muslim heritage and stated that the United States- which he is on record as saying is "no longer a Christian nation" is now "one of the largest Muslim countries int he world." Newsweek editior Evan Thomas followed the president's speech with a declaration reflected in the opinion of many, that "Obama is standing above the country, above the world, he is a sort of God."
Interestingly enough, Obama was not born with the name he currently uses. His birth name (at least that's the name he used as a child, on school records, etc.) was Barry Soetoro. This is evident from the following video from Fox News. Notice the denial of being Muslim at the end of the video.
Barry Soetoro (AKA Obama) the Muslim
In the following video the grown up Barry (AKA Barack) refers to his "Muslim Faith" and the news interviewer has to prompt him that he's spinning himself to be of Christian faith. These are the kinds of truths that are revealed when he does not have his teleprompter. I add this video and the one above to add more dots that can be connected to show the deception and lies. Also, there will surely be people who come to this page and will have believed the propaganda that's been spun of him being a good Christian, so it's best to face the facts all at once.
Obama slip up - admits Muslim faith
Why would Barry Soetoro need to change his name? The name he changed it to, Barak Hussein Obama, is three distinctively Muslim names. As evidenced by the significance of his new name in relation to islamic prophecy, it seems to make perfect sense.
But why would he need to cover up his Muslim faith? Well duh! Most Christian Americans and good old boy redneck Americans don't want someone running our country who might be in any way related to the "middle east Arab terrorists!" You can't have a Muslim in the White House! Actually you can and we do! You just have to dupe the naive sheeple into believing otherwise. Actually, the Quran (Muslim Bible) teaches that it is desirable to lie as necessary to infiltrate the infidels in order to establish Islam... believe it or don't!
Sadly, most of what Obama and his handlers portray him to be is a complete fabrication. There has never been another person on the planet that has been surrounded by more allegations of lies and deceit about who they really are. The list includes; (1) his real birth place, (2) his real parents, (3) his real name, (4) his real nationality, (5) his real religious beliefs, (6) his real birth certificate, (7) his real social security number, (8) his real school records, just to name the most publicized items.
His handlers have packaged him for the public, groomed him, and prepared the world stage for his ascent to power. No other person in the history of the world has claimed or been proclaimed to be the Messiah, been so universally accepted by the people of the world, or ascended to such a position of world influence and power, not just politically, but religiously as well. The ultimate pinnacle of that influence and power has yet to be seen, but simply by being president of the United States, Obama assumes the position of the most powerful man on the planet!
Dozens of churches and faith groups including mainline Protestants organized activities to mark Obama's inauguration as a 'spiritual' event. Randall Balmer, professor of religion in American history at Columbia University admitted he had never seen anything like it before.
CNN went so far as to compare Obama's inauguration to Hajj- the journey by Muslims to the holy city of Mecca, an obligatory pilgrimage that demonstrates their dedication to Allah.
In Des Moines, Iowa, an inaugural parade for Obama included a simulation of the triumphant entry of Christ in which a facsimile of Obama rode upon a donkey. As the reproduction made it's way down the streets, palm branches were handed out to onlookers so that they could wave them like Christ's adorers did in the 21st chapter of Matthew.
Consider the unprecedented messianic rhetoric that reporters, politicians, celebrities, and even preachers used in celebrating the 'spiritual nature' of Obama's meteoric rise from near obscurity to US President. San Francisco Chronicle columnist Mark Morford characterized it as "a sort of powerful luminosity." In Morford's opinion, this was because Obama is a "a Lightworker, that rare kind of attuned being who has the ability to... help usher in a new way of being on the planet..."
The dean of the Martin Luther King Jr. International chapel, Lawrence Carter, when further, comparing Obama to the coming of Jesus Christ: "It is powerful and significant on a spiritual level that there is the emergence of Barack Obama... No one saw him coming, and Christians believe God comes at us from strange angles and places we don't expect, like Jesus being born in a manger." Dinesh Sharma, a marketing science consultant with a PhD in Psychology from Harvard appraised Obama likewise: "Many... see in Obama a messiah-like figure, a great soul, and some affectionately call him Mahatma Obama."
Here are some other comments about the deity of Obama from various news sources:
"Barack's appeal is actually messianic... he... communicates God-like energy... What if God decided to incarnate as men preaching 'hope and change.' And what if we... let them slip away, not availing ourselves... to be led by God!" - Steve Davis, Journal Gazette
"This is bigger than Kennedy... This is the New Testament! I felt this thrill going up my leg. I mean, I don't have that too often. No, seriously. It's a dramatic event." - Chris Matthews, MSNBC
"Does it not feel as if some special hand is guiding Obama on his journey, I mean, as he has said, the utter improbability of it all?" - Daily Kos
"Obama, to me, must be not an ordinary human being but indeed an Advanced Soul, come to lead America out of this mess." - Lynn Sweet, Chicago Sun Times
"He is not operating on the same plane as ordinary politicians.. the agent of transformation in an age of revolution, as a figure uniquely qualified to open the door to the 21st century." - Former US Senator Gary Hart, Huffington Post
"He is not the Word made flesh [Jesus], but the triumph of word over flesh [better than Jesus]... Obama is, at his best, able to call us back to our highest selves." - Ezra Klein, Prospect
"Obama has the capacity to summon heroic forces from the spiritual depths of ordinary citizens and to unleash therefrom a symphonic chorus of unique creative acts whose common purpose is to tame the soul and alleviate the great challenges facing mankind." - Gerald Campbell, First Things First
"Obama was... blessed and highly favored... I think that... his election... was divinely ordered... I'm a preacher and a pastor; I know that that was God's plan... I think he is being used for some purpose." - Janny Scott, New York Times
"He won't just heal our city-states and souls. He won't just brink the Heavenly Kingdom- dreamt of in both Platonism and Christianity- to earth. He will heal the earth itself." - Micah Tillman, The Free Liberal
"The event itself is so extraordinary that another chapter could be added to the Bible to chronicle its significance." - Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., Politico
Several ministries including the Christian Devense Coalition and Faith and Action came together to perform what was heralded as a first for US presidential inaugurations- applying anointing oil to the doorposts of the arched doorway that Obama passed through as he moved to the platform on the West Front of the Capital to be sworn in. Congressman Paul Broun (Georgia) was part of the ritual and joined Reverend Rob Schenck, who said, "Anointing with oil is a rich tradition in the Bible and... symbolizes consecration or setting something apart for God's use."
Not content with just using sacred anointing oil to consecrate Obama for God's use, approximately two thousand New Agers, Wiccans and Shamans gathered at Dupont Circle (chosen because it's considered the gay center of Washington DC) to participate in a cleansing ceremony to purge the White House of evil spirits. A shaman officiated the event, lighting bundles of sage, which smoldered and gave off thick blue aromatic smoke.
Let's take a look at some photographs- further evidence that depicts Obama as God, the Messiah, or similar form of deity:
It's important to note here that not only does Obama and his handlers want you to believe that he is a deity, but the masses around the world believe it also. Many of the pictures above are the result of people who are deceived into believing in his artificial godliness, wherein they actually worship him, as is evidence by the pictures and artwork above.
In the next video clip, you will see globalist Henry Kissinger telling news reporters that the most important thing for Obama is the great opportunity he has to heal the world and unite the country into creating a new world order.
Henry Kissinger says Obama will create New World Order
Clearly, Obama is embraced as the God, Savior, and Messiah (literally and/or figuratively) for a large number of people, cultures, and religions around the world. His popularity reaches across social, geopolitical, and religious boundaries, well beyond just the Muslims and blacks. His disciples in the U.S. championed him into a second term as President. He is the globalist's pick for the man to lead the New World Order / one world government. He is clearly a false Christ, but, does all this make Obama the antichrist?
When we think of the antichrist, most people visualize the traditional Christian concept of a very evil man with supernatural powers who rules the earth during the years immediately preceding the second coming. He is seen as stern, but very charismatic and has great speaking abilities. Initially, he will be seen as wonderful and benevolent, solving many of the world's problems. Eventually he will become the embodiment of pure evil.
Obama fits this description quite well. But then again, so do many of the world political leaders and other prominent figures in the world today. How can we identify the antichrist? Is there only one antichrist from amongst all the evil people in the world?
According to "Mormon Doctrine" by Bruce R. McConkie:
An antichrist is an opponent of Christ; he is one who is in opposition to the true gospel, the true Church, and the true plan of salvation. (1 John 2:19; 4:4-6.) He is one who offers salvation to men on some other terms than those laid down by Christ. Sherem (Jac. 7:1-23), Nehor (Alma 1:2-16), and Korihor (Alma 30:6-60) were antichrists who spread their delusions among the Nephites.
Many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist." (2 John 7.) "Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ?" John asked. "He is an antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son." (1 John 2:22.) Though many modern day religionists profess to believe in Christ, the fact is they do not accept him as the literal Son of God and have not turned to him with the full knowledge and devotion necessary to gain salvation. "Whosoever receiveth my word receiveth me," he said, "and whosoever receiveth me, receiveth those, the First Presidency, whom I have sent, whom I have made counselors for my name's sake unto you." (D. & C. 112:20.)
The saints in the meridian of time, knowing there would be a great apostasy between their day and the Second Coming of our Lord, referred to the great apostate church as the anti-christ. "Little children, it is the last time," John said, "and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time." (1 John 2:18.) "And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world." (1 John 4:3.) This great antichrist which is to stand as the antagonist of Christ in the last days, and which is to be overthrown when he comes to cleanse the earth and usher in millennial righteousness, is the church of the devil (Rev. 13; 17), with the man of sin at its head. (2 Thess. 2:1-12.)
Let's consider the two clips above where Obama specifically states that; (1) he wasn't born in a manger, (2) he was sent to save the planet earth, and (3) he is the one we've been waiting for. What he is really saying is that the one who was born in a manager (Jesus) didn't save the planet earth and the earth is no longer waiting for him (Christ), because Jesus is not "the one" In other words, Obama is denying Jesus as the Christ and proclaiming himself to be the awaited Messiah, just as his disciples (i.e. Foxx, Winfrey, Farrakhan, etc.) have proclaimed!
Continuing on, we see that the prophesied "great antichrist" will actually be the church of the devil, rather than a single mortal man. However, McConkie points out that the church of the devil will be led by the man of sin.
McConkie also provides an explanation for who the Man of Sin is:
Lucifer is the man of sin, spoken of by Paul who was to be revealed in the last days before the Second Coming of our Lord. (2 Thess. 2:1-12.) He is the one of whom men shall say: "Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms; That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?" (Isa. 14:12-20.)
Joseph Smith, by revelation, inserted into Paul's account about the man of sin, these words: "He it is who now worketh, and Christ suffereth him to work, until the time is fulfilled that he shall be taken out of the way." (Inspired Version, 2 Thess. 2:7.) That is, Satan was then committing havoc among men, and he would continue to do so until the ushering in of the millennial era when he would be bound.
Paul's promise that the man of sin must be revealed before our Lord could return for the millennial era has been abundantly fulfilled. Lucifer's wicked plans, purposes, and works have been revealed or manifest from time to time, from the day of Paul to the present. At a conference of the Church held June 3, 1831, "the man of sin was revealed," in that some of the brethren were overcome by devils whom the Prophet rebuked and cast out. (History of the Church, vol. 1, p. 175.)
As far as mortal men are concerned, all those who become the agents and tools of the devil, who are used by him to further his interests and purposes on earth are, also men of sin.
Clearly, Obama is an antichrist by definition. He also fits the requirements very well for being a man of sin as defined here. But, is he the one man of sin who will lead the church of the devil in the very last days which will be overthrown when Christ returns? While we can't say with 100% certainty right now, Obama certainly has all the credentials, characteristics, and mannerisms necessary to be "The One!" And if he's not "the one," it's highly likely that he's the forerunner to the man of sin.
Make sure to check back often, because if turns out there is someone more evil and powerful who is accepted worldwide more than Obama and it turns out Obama's not the one, I will identify which of the world leaders is the most likely candidate is to assume the role as the man of sin.
