Obama Is The Antichrist?

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

Christians calling President Obama the antichrist are anti-Christ because of their love deficiency and lack of godly intercession, for those in authority. “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.” (1 Timothy 2:1-4)

I am astonished, appalled, and burdened with intercession at the spiritual ignorance, hard-heartedness, and lack of love in (us), the leaders in the body of Christ. These are just a few of the ministry quotes I’ve read recently, “Praying against Satan and referring to him as Obama,” prophesying or should I say prophe-lying “death, doom, and destruction to believers,” hinging your destiny or principles on whether Obama is president or not,” holding prayer visuals stating, “the destiny of America is in the hands of who is elected next,” “I felt something evil (perhaps their own deceptive heart), when they announced Obama was president,” just to name a few.

The office of the president is not a theocracy, even though some ignorantly treat it as such. In the event that Yahweh gives us discernment of some evil, disaster, or judgment, it is for us to repent and intercede for mercy to prevent it. However, due to the lack of love, we disqualify the individual(s), as if we have nothing in our lives that we need deliverance from. We leaders, who are destructively criticizing him, how many of you have brought this many nationalities, groups, races, and cultures together for One purpose, as did the president?

If we would place half as much energy in true apostolic intercession for him, reaching the lost, and lifting each other up, we would have no time for this buffoonery and carnal adolescent behavior. The truth is, this reveals where our hearts are, what our focus is on, and how deficient we are in demonstrating to the world, our love for Yahweh and each other. The condition of the world is because of the condition of the church, and the condition of the church is because of the condition of our hearts. We don’t need to come together for the sake of the presidency, we need to come together for the sake of (love) Christ.

We must come back to the basics. How can I say, “I Love The Lord,” whom I have never seen and regard hatred in my heart because of the pigmentation of your skin, or because you exhorted me with the truth in love, or because you voted for the opposite candidate, or simply have another opinion? It’s an oxymoron to me, when we (the church) come together to do wicked, foreign, or worldly things, but we can’t come together to worship the King of kings purely.

You can’t hate your neighbor and love God, at the same time. You can’t treat people with dishonor and worship God at the same time. You can’t call yourself a Christian leader and offer Christ to only select people or groups.

Bottom line: WORSHIP is how WE treat each OTHER, when WE DON’T AGREE. Fight to LOVE, don’t fight to be RIGHT. If all you want out of a relationship, ministry, marriage, or your occupation is to BE RIGHT, then your relationships will be short or self-righteously warped.

I’m so disgusted with the church on church crime. Let’s stop the killing and start the healing with loving and forgiving like Christ loves and forgives us. History has been made, but it’s according to who or what your God is that determines your future…signed dying to myself, to live without spiritual prejudice, for His Glory!

  1. Our government’s role does have a lot to do with the Bible, prophetically speaking, unfortunately. However, my feeling is that we, as Christians, should never be looking to a man for our salvation or answers…we should look to God. God put him there, I feel, to fulfill prophecy. We are commanded, whether we like someone or not, to pray for them…and we are commanded to pray for our leaders. God did not ask us to do this, He commanded it.

    Regarding the Antichrist, for one thing, whoever will be the Antichrist has not yet been revealed and it is completely absurd for anyone to project who it is at this point. Furthermore, the man who ‘will be’ the Antichrist does not become the Antichrist until after the head wound, when Satan enters into him. The igornance of so many Christians I have come across on the net as of late blows me away. There are too many people spreading false doctrine, believing theny know what they are talking about ,when you can’t find a shred of what they are saying in the Bible, or else they pervert the scriptures.

    I do make many posts relating to news which relates to prophecy. For those of us who are called to that ministry, we are to follow these things. God told us to be watchful and ready. My job is to preach repentance and make people aware of all that is going on that fulfills scriptures. Like I said, our government and its leaders have much to do with prophecy, particularly the book of Revelation. People called to prophecy and preaching repentance walk a very hard walk amongst the brethren. The most argumentative cold people, I have found, are those who are following false doctrine and pervert the truth, yet call themselves Christians.

    These days are very trying indeed. This is what the Lord spoke to me yesterday about the entire presidential stuff, if you’re interested. http://lynleahz.com/2012/11/08/when-david-trusted-in-the-power-of-man-instead-of-the-power-of-god/ AND PART TWO http://lynleahz.com/2012/11/08/when-david-trusted-in-the-power-of-man-instead-of-the-power-of-god/ I see you have read the first one, but I don’t think you saw the second one. God bless you for everything you do, sister. You’re a wonderful and amazing servant of our Lord!

    • Yes, we need to look to God not man. Prayer changes things especially us and our responses to our circumstances. We are called to rest in the finished work of the cross not in politics. The anger and hatred coming from many Christians does not reflect God nor his love and mercy. We are called to be salt and light. Our world would be much different, if we as Christians died to ourselves daily and surrendered completely to the hand of Yahweh. Love triumphs over judgment.

      • Amen, Admin. That is so very true! We are to “watch” the things happening in the world, including in our government..but our faith and our focus is to be the Lord. I distribute, on my blog, things to do with government that pertain to prophecy because when people see it happening, it can cause them to move to repentance, or move to salvation. It informs us as believers what is going on and what to pray for. However, to solely obsess over any man or woman of this world, or obsess over them is completely unbiblical and foolishness. As I wrote in my latest post on this issue, we are to praise God in ALL things..even if we don’t like it. We are trust Him in His purposes and bless others..not curse them. We don’t have to like things ‘about’ some people, but we are to love them in a Christ type of way…we are to pray for them and feel compassion toward them. The Bible says that we aren’t battling flesh and blood, but wicked spirits in high places. We are to always remember that in the spiritual realms, those who do not know the Lord and those who are living in the flesh are in bondage..they are tied up and persecuted…if they really knew the truth, they would want out of that bondage..but the enemy blinds them and torments them, keeping them in bondage to lies. We, as Christians, are supposed to try and rescue those people from the bondage..no matter how mean and wicked they are…we are to realize this is the enemy in their lives lying to them. We rescue them by telling them the truth, praying for them..waging war in the heavenlies. The ultimate decision will be theirs..but we must do as we are commanded as the body of Christ. We are never to slanderize people or speak hatred of them… we are not to murmur and complain as the Israelites did in the wilderness…we are to rejoice and have faith and bless others as we bless the Lord…in ALL things!

  2. I am not American, and I admit that I was hoping there would be a change of President, but I have also been amazed at the vitriol in some blogs against President Obama.

    Regardless of who we think should be in office, we MUST pray for our leaders. While we cannot ‘love’ someone who sanctions the murder of unborn children, we CAN love them with the love of Christ and pray for them.

    • Yes, God calls us to demonstrate love and mercy not to spill hatred on government leaders. We are told to honor the king (1 Peter 2:17). Love changes hearts from the inside, while hatred breeds death and destruction. God’s ways are much better than ours. Prayer for our leaders, changes our hearts and them. When we as a people humble ourselves and pray to God, he hears, forgives our sins and heals our land. (2 Chronicles 7:14)

  3. I read your comments, and agree with some. The thought that came to me, and so I ask: was Jesus out of love when He called the pharisees vipers or liers? When He saw evil, He called it as He saw it- a spirit opposed to the light and truth of His Kingdom. I personally have asked Yahweh to change my heart as needed, and He knows my heart. I can only pray for the President to fulfill the destiny for which he was created.

    • Yes, Jesus called the religious leaders of his day whitened tombs. They professed to know God and to lead the children of Israel to God but instead put many obstacles in the way for the people, to know the love and mercy of God. They had knowledge but lacked God’s heart and intimacy with him. They did not recognize Jesus as God’s Son and Messiah. Jesus did not speak this way of Pilate or the Emperor of Rome. We are told to fear God and honor the king in 1 Peter 2:17. President Obama is a civil authority not a religious leader. We are given great mercy and love and are called to extend it to others. What is being said by Christians, is exposing their hard hearts. Love covers and does not expose. Jesus gave his life so we sinners could live. Condemnation, name calling and hatred comes from the evil one and shows hardness of heart.

      It is time to cry to God in humility and repentance, turning from our sins to complete reliance on him.
      “If my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)

  4. I appreciate all the comments and replies. This is a strong discussion and a part of my relationship with Christ that I need to check everyday. The rambling and complaining goes on and on and can be easy to get caught in it.

  5. Jesus could call anyone whatever He wanted because He could see all the way down into our dirty little hearts. We are not God and we cannot see people’s hearts so no matter how we feel about the leaders in office we cannot see their hearts. God only knows what is in Obama’s heart. Thank you for your thoughtful post. I feel you had many words of wisdom. God bless!
