The Anti-Christ?

Who is he? Hint: it isn't Obama. :)

You don’t have to be a theologian to know that we’re on the threshold of a period in humanity called, “The Apocalypse”. In common language, we know it as the Endtimes.
The diabolical figure of the Apocalypse is a man descriptively known as Antichrist. In all likelihood, he won’t be called “Antichrist” when he assumes office, for that is a title which is descriptive of his hatred for God, not the actual name of the man.
Amidst the blizzard of different opinions about Antichrist, including his religion, nationality, race, etc., why not just go to the prophecies of the Bible and end all the confusion? Here are the major one that offer his identity, race, and origin.

#1 He comes from the linage of Japheth, specifically Magog, Japheth’s second son.
Magog would be Noah’s grandson (just in case you’re wondering). No, antichrist is not that old, but he come out of the lineage of Magog. The often overlooked reference to this comes from the prophecy of Ezekiel dating back to 593 B.C. In the prophecy it says:

"And you, son of man, prophesy against Gog [antichrist], and say, Thus says the Lord GOD: Behold, I am against you, O Gog [antichrist], chief prince of Meshech and Tubal [western and central Russia]; 2 and I will turn you about and drive you forward, and bring you up from the uttermost parts of the north, and lead you against the mountains of Israel; 3 then I will strike your bow from your left hand, and will make your arrows drop out of your right hand.4 You shall fall upon the mountains of Israel, you and all your hordes and the peoples that are with you [at the battle of Armageddon]; I will give you to birds of prey of every sort and to the wild beasts to be devoured. Ezek 39:1-4(RSV)

For a bit of clarity, when the lineages of Noah’s three sons dispersed across the earth, SHEM’s people traveled into the eastern region and later became the Semitic people. HAM’s people traveled into the southern regions of Africa and India and became known as the darker skinned people. JAPHETH’s people traveled across the Caucasus Mountains into Europe and became known as the Caucasians. From Japheth’s linage comes Gog, the chief prince of the Magogic people.
Since the last three chapter of Ezekiel are dedicated the very near future pertaining to this generation, we can conclude with all certainty that Gog, is the Old Testament name of antichrist in the New Testament. (The name “antichrist” was not known until 96 A.D. when the Apostle John received the vision of Revelation on the island of Patmos. Paul refers to antichrist as “the Lawless One in 2 Thessalonians 2:8 when he wrote to the Thessalonians in 52 A.D.)
Antichrist will come from the Magogic lineage which means he will be a white man. Hence, Obama cannot be the antichrist. Obama’s lineage is Hametic from his father, and Japhetic from his mother. The lineage in the Old Testament follows the father’s line, not the mother’s.

#2 Antichrist is a man; he is not satan incarnate.
They worshiped the dragon [satan] because he gave his authority to the beast [antichrist]; and they worshiped the beast [antichrist], saying, "Who is like the beast, and who is able to wage war with him?" Rev 13:4(NAU)
Here we find two separate personages, satan and antichrist who is also called “the beast”.

#3 & #4 Antichrist previously existed as a leader of one of the seven beast empires and comes up from the Abyss.
The next three subtopics should be combined into one but I have separated them for the ease of comprehension.
Here is where it gets a bit difficult for many people to accept. One must remember that the Endtimes is a period where the 4th dimension (spiritual world) and the 3rd dimension (the tangible world) interface. The entire 7-year period of Revelation is about the supernatural interplay of the 4th dimension on the 3rd dimension. As such, we should expect the strange and the unusual.
The seven beast empires of history are: Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, Rome, and Hitler’s 3rd Reich. The 8th Beast Empire is the future world empire of antichrist which is soon to begin within our generation which likely will arise on the aftermath of a world economic chaos.
But remember, antichrist comes from the Magogic lineage. On that requirement according to Ezekiel, which of the seven beast empires are Magogic in lineage?
(1) Egypt is from the lineage of HAM (Gen 10:6).
(2) Assyria is from the lineage of SHEM (Gen 10:22).
(3) Babylon is from the lineage of HAM.
(4) Greece is from the lineage of JAPHETH (Magog).
(5) Medo-Persia is from the lineage of JEPHETH (Magog)
(6) Rome is from the lineage of JAPHETH (Magog).
(7) Hitler’s 3rd Reich is from the lineage of JAPHETH (Magog).
According Scripture, from one of these seven beast empires comes antichrist. The fact is, the leaders of each empire are now dead. For this reason, antichrist will come up from the Abyss as a resurrected man. The Abyss is not hell, but a location in the earth where the spirits of the damned reside. It seems to be a place where such spirits come and go but with certain limitations. Bible prophecy out of Revelation written in 96 A.D. says:

"The beast that you saw was [one of the seven leaders of the beast empires], and is not [because he was slain with a fatal head wound], and is about to come up out of the Abyss [Bottomless Pit] and goes to destruction [when he is killed at the Battle of Armageddon]. And those who dwell on the earth, whose name has not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, will wonder [be amazed] when they see the beast [antichrist], that he was [one of the leaders of the beast empires] and is not [because he was slain with a fatal head wound] and will come [again as the leader of the 8th beast empire]. 9 Here is the mind which has wisdom. The seven heads [seven beast empires] are seven mountains [of world dominion] on which the woman [the Harlot] sits, 10 and they are seven kings; five have fallen [Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Medo-Persia, and Greece], one is [the Roman at the time John was shown the Revelation], the other [Hitler’s 3rd Reich] has not yet come; and when he comes, he must remain a little while. 11 "The beast which was [a leader of one of the previous seven] and is not [for he is yet to come], is himself also [the leader of] an eighth [antichrist’s 10-Nation Confederation] and is {one} of the seven, and he goes to destruction [at the Battle of Armageddon]. Rev 17:9-11

#5 When antichrist was a leader of one of the seven previous beast empires, he died of a head wound.
Realizing this man is nothing but a man but supernatural from the powers of satan and an ambassador of satan himself, the world will stand in awe when he is revealed as a man who has back to life. Remember, he is the counterfeit of the Jesus. One of the proofs of Christ as the Messiah is His resurrection from the dead. In the same way, antichrist will stun the world and offer his resurrection as a convincing display to bolster his claim of being God.

And those who dwell on the earth, whose name has not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, will wonder [be amazed] when they see the beast [antichrist], that he was [one of the leaders of the beast empires] and is not [because he was slain with a fatal head wound and died] and will come [again as the leader of the 8th beast empire]. Revelation 17:8

#6. Based on the above Bible prophecies about antichrist and who is he? Remember:
(1) He comes up from the Abyss. (Rev 17:9)
(2) He is Magogic in lineage. (Ezekiel 39:1-4)
(3) He was the leader of a previous beast empire. (Rev 17:10)
(4) He died of a head wound during his beast-empire leadership. (Rev 17:8)

We can eliminate the beast empires of Egypt, Assyria, and Babylon since none of them are Magogic in lineage. This leaves four to choose from which are all Magogic in lineage: Medo-Persia, Greece, Rome, and Hitler’s 3rd Reich.
Of the final four, which of the leaders died of a head wound?
(1) Darius of Medo-Persia died in battle from a sword wound. Nothing in history mentions a head wound.
(2) Alexander the Great of Greece died of malaria.
(3) Nero of Rome died is a self-inflicted knife wound to the throat.
(4) Hitler died of a gunshot to the head. His body was found in his bunker next to his wife who drank cyanide. Hitler’s body was then burned and thrown down a well according to the best reports. However, his corpse has never been found.
Only Hitler fits all the requirements of scripture that tells of antichrist. He was obsessed with the occult and as no other beast empire leader, had a strong affection for satan. Forty-two assassination attempts were made to kill Hitler but all of them failed. Why? Because Bible prophecy is without error. It is not an approximation such as Nostrdomas’ record indicates where he hits and misses. Accordingly, Bible foretold exactly how Hitler would die—a fatal wound to the head—not by bombs, poison or any other means.
Personally, I don’t believe he can be recognized until he signs the 7-year peace pact with Israel to ensure her safety. This particular event takes place exactly 1,260 days after he signs the peace pact. If you miss that event, then his identity will be unmistakable when he assume his throne in the temple at Jerusalem and declares himself to be God, exactly 1,260 days from the signing.
At the signing of the peace pact, he will be the leader of a 3-nation coalition backed by seven other nations in which he will have a quad of power composed of military, economic, religious and political backing. (Daniel 7:8)
History records that the 6th beast empire, Rome, killed 5,000,000 Christians and Jews over a 214 year period. Hitler killed 6,000,000 Christians and Jews in but a few years during WWII. Truly he is the most diabolical man that ever lived on plant earth. However his blood thirst as the leader of the 7th beast empire is but a drop as compared to his slaughter during his 8th beast empire. In less than 1,331 days, he kills over 1,750,000,000 people (one billion seven hundred fifty million). This is a population number equal to ¼ of mankind by the year 2011—a number equal to all the people of North America, Europe, and Africa. While the largest number will be Christians and Jews, anyone who refuses to worship him as God will be killed. Finally, Jesus kills him at the Battle of Armageddon exactly 2,550 days after antichrist signs the peace pact.

For more information on him, the false prophet, and the exact order of events as they unfold, you can read my book, The Chronological Order or Revelation which can be purchased on Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, or any major book seller.

I thought you were a couple-a-chicks. That book was written by a dude. Hitler -- that's a bit weird. Kinda gave away the ending, didn't you?

That "dude" is my dad and has been studying the book of Revelation (point in case- giving away the ending) for years. So, he knows his stuff.

Makes sense though...
