Obama isn't the Antichrist. The Bible says the Antichrist will come boasting that there is no God and that all Religion is wrong. Several times Obama has claimed to be Christian. Even though some retarded people say he is Muslim. The antichrist, as I said, will come boasting that there is no God. It all fits perfectly together because he will gain the approval of the Jewish people. In which case he will in turn say he is the Messiah. The Bible says that some Jewish people will turn and run because of the two witnesses that will warn the world. The antichrist will have them killed and they will lay in the streets of Jerusalem for three days. Its all in the Bible man. Read Daniel and Revelation. Of course all this happens after the rapture.
If you want a picture of the Anti-Christ, look at Adolf Hitler. I don't mean greasy hair or stupid mustache. Look at his actions and philosophy. Who is acting and thinking like this now? (I'll give you a hint, it's not the Pope.)
To those who don't have the "Seal of God", are the "anti-christ" and they are in the world, right now. Satan, is their leader who goes against or (pseudo) against the "Word of God." Wherefore, "Anti-Christ" is not a "human being" - anti-christ is "Satan" himself, ruling all the unsaved people in the world. Satan, is now at work and he has transformed himself as an angel of light, they are deceitful workers. And, Christ has warned us about this, 2000 years ago. And, he is already at work, since the beginning of the Gospel.
"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. Behold, I have told you before...Matthew 24:24-25."
"For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works...2 Corinthians 11:14."
"And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, (We see this today, they "blaspheme his name" and his "Law") and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. "If any man have an ear, let him hear." Revelation 13:6-9."
They are now being marked on their "forehead" and on their "hands", "Spritually" and only God who knows, who they are. These people are the emesaries of Satan and they are deceitful workers. The 666, signified 1/3 (saved) and 2/3 are the (unsaved) people in the world. But, out of that 1/3 only remant or truly the child of God will be saved. We read this truth in the book of Revelation 13:16-18.
"And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads. And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six."

From what I understand about what the anti christ to be, it's someone who can manipulate people and bring them to his side. The pope is an isolating figure, especially to atheists and non religious, who you would think be the ones who would fall for the lies of the anti-christ. Besides, the old guy can't even do his job, much less be a devil incarnate trying to take over the world.
You know who would be the best anti-christ? Morgan fucking Freeman. Just the sound of the man's voice will draw you to his side. And even if you knew he was the anti-christ, would you care? I mean, if Morgan Freeman approves, maybe there's something to it. If he were the anti-christ, I would denounce my atheism and become Christian, just so I could denounce tat and follow Morgan Freeman as he conquered the world in the name of Satan!!
See 1 John 2:18-22, 4:3, 2 John 1:7. "Antichrist" is not a singular person in scripture. The idea of THE Antichrist is an apocalyptic tradition arrived at by conflating John's antichrists, those who deny Christ in the flesh and who therefore carry "the spirit of antichrist", with Paul's "man of sin, the son of perdition" in 2 Thess. 2.
It's a mistake to read Revelation purely as prophecy. It surely was not intended as such, but as consolation for Christians undergoing extreme persecution and to assure them of Christ's ultimate triumph. References to the future may be understood in terms of typology [link] not literally.
Revelation actually was, and remains, a controversial book. The Eastern churches did not want it as part of the canon, not least because it was so prone to being misunderstood. To this day the Orthodox do not read it in church.
#1) I remember back in the earlier part of the 2000s, people were considering George W Bush to be the anti-Christ. Now that Obama is president, people are saying he's the anti-Christ. And I'll bet you $20, whoever gets elected in the 2016 election is going to be labeled the anti-Christ.
#2) Neil DeGrasse Tyson is the REAL anti-Christ. He's going to take over the world and rule with an iron fist!
I'm only going to wager a nickel on that one though.
The Anti-Christ is any such charismatic person who is the agent and embodiment of ultimate evil. Not even the direct puppetmaster of Obama would be an Anti-Christ in my opinion. The next pope might be an Anti-Christ, and don't think it's got anything to do with violence and hate. Good is defined by one's life offered to God, abiding His rules, working in His name, seeking His wisdom etc. (of course, this is a Christian approach, and in reality these sacrifices can be way more diverse and have a much more transparent reason behind them depending on a religion's ontology).
My guess is it's either going to be a Jew claiming to be the Messiah, and supporting Jewish supremacy, or if not that a demon-possessed supercomputer that says humanity is obsolete and we should all become cyborgs or sentient robots. Obviously most people wouldn't know it's demon possessed, and just think it's a really advanced computer.
