Immediately after Obama got elected,all africans were swept away by the euphoria of his presidency,and even here in Nairobi,as an african, i saw jubilation fill the streets. I do not believe that Obama is the Antichrist,coz the jews will have to really compromise to accept a non-jew as the messiah.(well,it could happen...we'll have to wait and see...).However,as recently as 2005,some jews believed that the messiah will be the one who rebuilds the temple. But Obama proved to the world,especially to christians, that you can be elected to office purely because of your charisma and your oratory.( i have had my heart in my mouth ever since the world started clamouring after Obama.) The bible says in the book of revelation that men"will wonder in astonishment after the beast",and will exclaim"who is like the beast? who can war against him?" Obama makes an entry into office in the midst of two wars,one in Iraq,the other in Afghanistan. I will not be surprised if some "Illustrious warring figure" comes into prominence by seeming to help the Obama Administration end these wars.Such a leader would astound the world as a "military genius" just like the beast. Let us keep watching. War seems to be the identifying mark of this beast,"...and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest...."The other beast is a religious figure wooing the world with miracles..."even causing fire to come down in full view of men." Is Obama an Antichrist stage?
