The End Times According to the Bible
It is written that in the end times, there will be wars and rumors of wars, famines and plagues, and the rise of the Antichrist. The Bible tells us that these things must come to pass, but it does not give us a specific timeline. Many people believe that we are living in the end times now, and point to events such as the rise of ISIS, natural disasters, and the election of Barack Obama as evidence. Let’s take a closer look at some of these events to see if they really could be signs of the end times.
What is the Rapture?
The Rapture is an event that is spoken about in the Bible in which Jesus Christ will descended from Heaven and gather all of His followers who have died and gone to be with Him. He will also take all of His living followers with Him so that they may be with Him forever. This event is spoken of in the Book of Revelation, and it is unclear when it will happen. Some people believe that the Rapture will happen before the Tribulation, while others believe that it will happen during or after the Tribulation.
What is the Tribulation?
The Tribulation is a time of great distress and suffering that is prophesied to occur before the end times. The Tribulation is described in the book of Revelation, which says that it will be a time of great tribulation such as has not been seen before. The Tribulation will last for seven years, and during this time the Antichrist will rule over the world. The Antichrist willpersecute those who follow Jesus Christ, and many people will be killed.
What is the Millennium?
The Millennium is a future time when Jesus Christ will reign on earth for 1,000 years (Revelation 20:1–6). It will be a time of great peace and prosperity, without the presence of Satan. Jesus’ rule will be just and righteous (Ezekiel 45:9; Psalm 72:1–4, 7–8).
During the Millennium, the earth and its inhabitants will be restored to their perfect state (Isaiah 11:6–9; 35:1–2, 5–6; 65:17–25). The blind will see, the deaf will hear, and the lame will walk (Isaiah 29:18; 35:5). There will be no more sorrow or death (Isaiah 25:8).
Christ’s 1,000-year reign on earth is sometimes called the “kingdom age.” It follows a period of judgment called the great tribulation and precedes eternity in heaven. Only those who have trusted in Christ as Savior will enter the Millennium. unbelievers will be consigned to hell.
The End Times According to Obama
In a recent interview, Obama was asked about his thoughts on the end times. He said that he believes that the end times are not now, but that they will happen eventually. He went on to say that we need to be prepared for them.
What did Obama say about the Rapture?
Speaking at a town hall event in Nevada, Obama was asked about his Christian faith and what he believes happens to Christians when they die.
“I believe in the Rapture,” Obama said. “I don’t know if it’s going to be literal or not, but I believe that Jesus Christ coming down from heaven is one of the most important events that will ever happen.”
Obama went on to say that he believes Christians will be “raptured” up to heaven, and those who are left behind will have to endure a time of tribulation on earth. But he stressed that this is just his personal belief and not something that he expects everyone to believe.
What did Obama say about the Tribulation?
In an interview with Mike Myer of the Huffington Post, President Obama was asked about his thoughts on the Tribulation. Obama responded by saying, “The Bible does talk about the end times, and there are a lot of Christians who believe that we are in the Tribulation. I don’t know if that’s true or not, but I think it’s important for us to be prepared for whatever comes our way.”When asked what he would do differently if he knew the Tribulation was coming, Obama said, “I would try to spend more time with my family and loved ones, and make sure that they were prepared spiritually and emotionally for whatever might happen.”
What did Obama say about the Millennium?
At a town hall meeting in Elkhart, Indiana, on February 9, 2016, then-President Obama was asked about the “end times” and what his thoughts were on when they might occur. Obama said that he didn’t have any special insight into the matter, but he did offer a general comment about how people should approach the topic.
“I think it’s always useful to remind ourselves that we don’t know exactly what’s going to happen,” Obama said. “And so, we shouldn’t be too quick to assume that we know all the answers.”
He went on to say that while there are many different interpretations of the end times within Christianity, it’s important to remember that “God is in control.” Obama said that ultimately, it’s not up to us to worry about when the end times will come, but instead to focus on living our lives in a way that is pleasing to God.
What the Bible Says About Obama and the End Times
Barack Obama has been called many things, but is he the Antichrist? Are we living in the end times? Let’s take a look at what the Bible says about Obama and the end times.
Who is the Antichrist?
There is much speculation about who the Antichrist is and many people believe that Obama may be the Antichrist. However, there is no concrete evidence to support this claim and it is purely speculative. There are a number of Bible verses that mention the Antichrist but they do not specifically identify who he is. The following are some of the most relevant verses:
2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 – “Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God.”
Revelation 13:1-10 – “And I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads, and on his horns were ten diadems, and on his heads were blasphemous names. And the beast which I saw was like a leopard, and his feet were like those of a bear, and his mouth was like the mouth of a lion. And the dragon gave him his power and his throne and great authority. I saw one of his heads as if it had been slain, and his fatal wound was healed. And the whole earth marveled after the beast. They worshiped the dragon because he gave his authority to the beast, and they worshiped the beast, saying,’Who is like the beast? Who can make war against him?’ There was given to him a mouth speaking arrogant words and blasphemies,
and authority to act for forty-two months was given to him. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name and His tabernacle , those who dwell in heaven . It was also given to him
to make war with
the saints ,
and to overcome them ,
and authority over every tribe
was given to him , peoples , tongues , nations .”
What does the Bible say about the False Prophet?
The False Prophet is not specifically named in the Bible, but there are definitely some characteristics given that make it possible to identify him. The False Prophet will be beast-like, coming up out of the earth (Revelation 13:11), and he will have two horns like a lamb, but he will speak with the dragon’s voice (Revelation 13:12). He will have the power to perform miracles and deceive many people into worshipping the Antichrist (Revelation 13:13-14).
The False Prophet will also be involved in setting up the image of the Antichrist that people are supposed to worship (Revelation 13:15). Anyone who does not worship this image will be killed (Revelation 13:15). The False Prophet will also be involved in an economic system where people need to receive a mark on their right hand or forehead in order to buy or sell anything (Revelation 13:16-17).
The False Prophet is ultimately destroyed by Jesus Christ when He returns (Revelation 19:20).
What does the Bible say about the Beast?
Revelation 13:1-10 speaks of a beast that rises from the sea with seven heads and ten horns. The dragon, who is Satan, gives the beast his power and his throne. The beast is a world ruler who is worshipped by the people of the earth. He blasphemes God and makes war against the saints. The saints overcome him by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony.
There are a number of interpretations of this passage, but some believe that it refers to Obama. They point to the fact that he has seven letters in his name, which could represent the seven heads of the beast. Additionally, they believe that his policies are contributing to the end times by paving the way for a one-world government and one-world religion.
