Is George Bush The Antichrist?
A short working paper for your prayerful consideration
Is Bush the coming Antichrist or Man of Sin? I don't think so, but he surprisingly fills many of the parameters of the coming man of sin. Additionally his actions are perfectly timed to bring about the coming antichrist system in the regions of the world that so many ‘prophecy experts’ have long ignored.
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have [it] more abundantly. - (John 10:10)
Ye are of [your] father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. - (Joh 8:44)
It has been said that the Antichrists kingdom (or mammon) and society rest on three earthly pillars; Piety, Prosperity and Power. When the Devil Temped Jesus, these were among the things that Christ was tempted with.
And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.
Mat 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
Mat 4:5 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,
Mat 4:6 And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in [their] hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.
Mat 4:7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.
Mat 4:8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;
Mat 4:9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.
Mat 4:10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
Mat 4:11 Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.
It is these things that are pillars of the system of those who serve the Devil. The man of sin will not be an atheist he will be a religious person and will have the backing of the religious world, just like our current President does. Remember that the false prophet is the one who causes worship of the Man of Sin (Rev 13). He will wage war with the backing of the religious establishment. He will talk of prosperity, propose to bring it, Just like our current President. He will seek power through violence just like out current President. There are indeed many more parallels between the current President and the coming man of sin than many people like to believe. He has done a great deal to force Israel to divide her land up ,
(Joe 3:2) I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and [for] my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.
The land that the Living God has given to the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
He has been known as a heavy drinker and very proud and arrogant (Hab 2:5)
He usually has an angry scowl on his face (Dan 8:23)
He is bent on subjugating the middle East. Indeed has is requesting that the EU back him in getting MidEast leaders onto the Bandwagon (Hababkuk 1:5ff).
He is Preeminent among a system of Ten Kings (G-10) see Revelation 17:12
And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
and Daniel 7:24
(Dan 7:24) And the ten horns out of this kingdom [are] ten kings [that] shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.
The G10 are:
What? There are actually eleven nations listed. How can that be?
And the ten horns out of this kingdom [are] ten kings [that] shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. (Dan 7:24)
There were 10 nations originally when it was formed in 1946 and they were all members of the IMF. Later, in 1984, Switzerland (a neutral country) joined the group. Switzerland is by no means a super power or even great power militarily, indeed it is a very unique nation and has been for many years. It is where the Bank for International Settlements is located and it is also where many UN agencies have their headquarters. It is, by virtue of its neutrality a good place for international peace organizations as well as banks to do business. This is an interesting possibility but it as much as it appears to fulfill many of the parameters of the prophecy, the book of Revelation seems to throw some cold water on this as John says that they 'have no kingdom as yet'. How this phrase is viewed is key to understanding the nature of this beast and the identity of the ten kings. It is true that America, is at the head of (rides) this organization as the most powerful country and having the most influence (by far) when the G10 formulate its policies and America's currency is the reserve currency of the world. The vision of the G10 is the same as the that of the G7/G8; it is of a global government with western capitalism at the head. In other words the entire purpose of their existence is to bring about an international/global financial system, the key component of a world government. If America or New York ever gets destroyed, the UN would almost certainly move to Switzerland.
“These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.”
- From the article Who Is the Antichrist found at the Prophets Corner.
Watch this entity brothers and sisters...watch it closely it may or may not be the fulfillment of the prophecy, and the dead silence I hear in the prophetic world on this leads to think that this may very will be the prophetic Ten Kings.
He is Preeminent among a system of Seven Empires(G-7)
(Rev 17:9-11) And here [is] the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, [and] the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
Now before any of you get upset by this consider that this about the G7
One possibility of the seven mountain entity (Rev 17:9) is an entity that has enormous Global power. Interestingly and perhaps not coincidently, America is preeminent over this seven-nation entity. This is the G7. It has seven and now, very recently, gained an eighth member. This is the G-8, formerly the G-7. Russia being the eighth (who many believe is Gog of Ezekiel 38-39) and if this interpretation is correct, will go into perdition (17:11), because it will, according to many prophecy scholars, invade Israel. These nations are important nations and when they formed, five had been fallen (empires) at the inception of the G7 (Past fallen empires are Britain, Japan, France, Germany and Italy). One is still an empire (US) Canada was never an empire and Russia has now joined making it eight, just like the biblical entity.
"Since 1975, the heads of state or government of the major industrial democracies have been meeting annually to deal with the major economic and political issues facing their domestic societies and the international community as a whole. The six countries at the first Summit, held at Rambouillet, France in November 1975, were France, the United States, Britain, Germany, Japan and Italy. They were joined by Canada at the San Juan, Puerto Rico Summit of 1976, and by the European Community at the London Summit of 1977. Since then membership in the G7 has been fixed, although 15 developing countries' leaders met with the G7 leaders on the eve of the 1989 Paris Summit, and the USSR and then Russia have had a post-Summit dialogue with the G7 since 1991. Starting with the 1994 Naples Summit, the G7 and Russia have met as the P8 ("Political 8"), following each G7 Summit. The Denver Summit of the Eight was a milestone, marking full Russian participation in all but financial and certain economic discussions; and the 1998 Birmingham Summit saw full Russian participation, giving birth to the G8 (although the G7 continues to function along side the formal summits)." - ( From the G8’s home page)
He has destroyed Afghanistan and Iraq Wonderfully
(Dan 8:24) And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.
Yes Bush and the coming man of sin will speak of peace yet destroy many
(Dan 8:24) And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.
He hides his secret religious and fraternal association (he is a member of the Skull and Bones) a secret almost certainly Satanic organization. Remember that Deceit is a hallmark of the end-times system. The antichrist must be revealed (2Thess 2:8) for who he is, it will not be readily apparent. Some think this means that he will rise from obscurity, this may be true, it could also be true that he will be well known but his true nature will not be apparent to anyone until he shows his true colors. Paul says the he rises with all deceivableness of unrighteousness (2 Thess 2:10).
The antichrist (man of sin/son of perdition) will grow in power and arrogance as time goes onwards and will only be destroyed by Christ’s coming.
Bush has deposed two governments already and scoffed at their rulers
(Hab 1:10) And they shall scoff at the kings, and the princes shall be a scorn unto them: they shall deride every strong hold; for they shall heap dust, and take it.
Remember the invasion of Iraq and the sandstorm that erupted here are the pictures.
Bush went in to posses a sovereign nation and occupy a nation that did not belong to him.
(Hab 1:6)For, lo, I raise up the Chaldeans1, [that] bitter and hasty nation, which shall march through the breadth of the land, to possess the dwellingplaces [that are] not theirs.
He claimed he did not need the world’s approval and decided to take it upon himself to Judge Iraq 'guilty'
(Hab 1:7) They [are] terrible and dreadful: their judgment and their dignity shall proceed of themselves.
Our attack was swift and we used as a key aircraft the F-15 Eagle and we came from the other side of the Globe
(Hab 1:8)Their horses also are swifter than the leopards, and are more fierce than the evening wolves: and their horsemen shall spread themselves, and their horsemen shall come from far; they shall fly as the eagle [that] hasteth to eat.
He goes in to spoil (plunder) the nations he invades as we are now stealing Iraq’s oil and many of her ancient treasures have been stolen.
(Hab 2:8) Because thou hast spoiled many nations, all the remnant of the people shall spoil thee; because of men's blood, and [for] the violence of the land, of the city, and of all that dwell therein.
Indeed this is most interesting because it shows the fate of this mad ruler, those who we attack will come and loot us and here we see three interesting things There is violence in the Land, and the CITY and her inhabitants. Remember that Habakkuk noted that it was the modern Chaldeans (Babylonians) that are the ones doing all of these things (Hab 1:6). Now the modern day Chaldeans is the nation that has Mystery Babylon in her midst.
That nation is America. The City is New York. Do not let any unstudied, half studied 501©3 Babylonian minister tell you otherwise. This nation is under a curse and we will never come from under that curse. We will be destroyed by the living God for our perversions, sodomy, lies, deceits murders, plunderings, bribery, witchcraft and rebellion. If you want to know which nations will do it, write down every nation we have invaded and will invade in the coming months and years and you will have your answer. America has a soft underbelly in Mexico and the border is all but open. Anyone who has seen an Iraqi and seen a Mexican can see that it would take some effort to tell one from the other just by looking at him. It would not be difficult at all for Iraqi’s to infiltrate America to destroy if from within, especially with Bush’s lackadaisical attitude towards illegal immigration.
The burden of Babylon, which Isaiah the son of Amoz did see. Lift ye up a banner upon the high mountain, exalt the voice unto them, shake the hand, that they may go into the gates of the nobles. I have commanded my sanctified ones, I have also called my mighty ones for mine anger, [even] them that rejoice in my highness. The noise of a multitude in the mountains, like as of a great people; a tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations gathered together: the LORD of hosts mustereth the host of the battle. They come from a far country, from the end of heaven, [even] the LORD, and the weapons of his indignation, to destroy the whole land. Howl ye; for the day of the LORD [is] at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty. Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man's heart shall melt: And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces [shall be as] flames. Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine. And I will punish the world for [their] evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible. I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir. Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger. And it shall be as the chased roe, and as a sheep that no man taketh up: they shall every man turn to his own people, and flee every one into his own land. Every one that is found shall be thrust through; and every one that is joined [unto them] shall fall by the sword. Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished. Behold, I will stir up the Medes against them, which shall not regard silver; and [as for] gold, they shall not delight in it. [Their] bows also shall dash the young men to pieces; and they shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb; their eye shall not spare children. And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees' excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah. It shall never be inhabited, neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation: neither shall the Arabian pitch tent there; neither shall the shepherds make their fold there. But wild beasts of the desert shall lie there; and their houses shall be full of doleful creatures; and owls shall dwell there, and satyrs shall dance there. And the wild beasts of the islands shall cry in their desolate houses, and dragons in [their] pleasant palaces: and her time [is] near to come, and her days shall not be prolonged.
Here we can see how Babylon is destroyed and we can also see who assist in the destruction, God will raise up the Medes (modern day Iran) to destroy America. It follows that there is a strong possibility that America will Invade Iran as some point in the future. God will use fire (as he did in Sodom and Gomorrah) to destroy the Babylonian monstrosity. This is the New America that has now come into being. For those who still think that Iraq is this Babylon, I will not argue and you are partially correct. The king of that Babylon now legally George Bush.2 He became King of ancient Babylon the day he invaded and occupied Iraq. However, he is also king of Mystery Babylon, the great end time nation that will be destroyed by the almighty God for her sins. She “become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.” (Rev 18:2) America’s pattern is set. She will become more evil and evil as time passes until the harvest is ripe
And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe. And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast [it] into the great winepress of the wrath of God.
Here we see that one evil has grown up and is ready for a harvest. The fruit must grow to reaping stage first. God will reap these grapes of wrath and tread it down.
I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people [there was] none with me: for I will tread them in mine anger, and trample them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I will stain all my raiment. For the day of vengeance [is] in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come.
There is great anger at the world for its sin and at Babylon for perverting the earth with her fornications.
For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
Woe to him that coveteth an evil covetousness to his house, that he may set his nest on high, that he may be delivered from the power of evil!
This man is a coveter. He covets the wealth (oil) of others and he makes himself safe with his security measures by setting his nest on high (Air Force One).
One of the biggest problems with modern prophecy students is that whenever they look at end-time prophecy it is always close, but not yet; it is a nation not far off but never us; in other words it is never US and never NOW. These things are happening and how many of the televangelists, who rake in millions, have told you of these things? Now...how many have asked you for money?
Some are close, but never want to say who America is. They make excuses for our violence, or fornications, our drug addictions, our corruption, or secret policies to deststabilize nations that have never attacked or harmed us. Americans (Christians included) will lie themselves out of the obvious, and make millions of excuses to justify every crime and abomination that they commit against the poor, against the innocent and against the righteous. This is satan’s nation; lock, stock and barrel. It has forsaken the living God and told him to leave our schools, our courts, our government buildings and our nation as a whole. America has basically flipped God off and rolled out the flamming red carpet for satan. The evil one could never be happier. America was a prize for him as we are the most powerful and most wealthy nation on the globe. What and insult we have done to a God who has shown us such blessings and such wealth! What a slap in the face. It reminds me of some lines from Shakespeare.
Ingratitude, thou marble-hearted fiend, more hideous, when thou show'st thee in a child, than the sea-monster.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child! - Shakespere
God has been betrayed again by those to whom he blessed the most. But he will repay and woe, woe, woe unto the leaders and people of America!!
I say again Woe unto you who have forsaken the fountains of living waters.
But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things. Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge [and] increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain.
The Scriptures say the man of sin will honor a strange God and will divide that land for gain (Daniel 11:38-39)
Bush claims to be a Christian but his actions cast a long shadow of doubt over the reality and truthfulness of his declaration of faith. He belongs to a strange and secretive group called the Skull and Bones which have been linked by many researchers to Satanic rituals. And while we have not seen Bush divide the holy land, we have seen him continue to push Israel, as all past American Presidents have to give up land for ‘peace’. It is not a stretch to see that if such an agreement were reached Bush would see to it that his cronies (Halliburton) get in on the deal for money and contracts to Divide Israel in what may be called a two-state policy.
However, the prophesy also says that the man of sin will elevate himself above all Gods.
We have not seen him do this yet, though we may one day soon. When one looks what is happening in the Middle East and the recent death of Arafat, and the resumption of substantive negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians serious questions as to the lateness of the hour should be asked. Most prophecy students understand that Israel and Jerusalem are at the center of end time events. They also know that one of the reasons God becomes so angry in these times is the parting of the Holy Land.
I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and [for] my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.
God will plead with the Nations over Israel and the fact that the Land is and shall be parted. Is it not American Presidents for decades that have insisted that Israel should give up LAND for peace?
But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
Many expositors also believe that a peace treaty must be signed in Jerusalem and that the man of sin will 'confirm' this covenant3. Weather or not you subscribe to this interpretation of Daniels prophecy it nevertheless remains relevant to us who watch and pray. The simple fact remains that it is the Nations (Gentile's) that part the Holy Land and it is they with whom God destroys. The American President is and has been for decades the strongest proponent of this, along with Europe. This is why what is happening now between Israel and the Palestinians is so crucial to the end times. It behooves us not to get swept in the false euphoria that peace has broken out. No matter how much is seems like it, it is a false peace that will end in a horrendous and final global conflagration.
Is Bush the antichrist? I don't think so, but brothers and sisters I have to tell you, I sometimes wonder ! Our current President's entire tone and that of his administration is not of humility but of arrogance, not seeking wise council, but of surrounding himslf with yes men. What kind of man can sit at the pinnacle of power and authorize torture? What kind of man steals elections and talks constantly of bringing 'democracy' to the places he destroys? What Kind of man can lie us into war, repeatedly? Are these that actions of a Christian or an antichrist?
For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
Do you love and support those who make lies and kill? Well, now you know where you will end up.
If there is anything that I want the readers of this to come away with after reading this, it is this; The end-time system is one of deception. It rises in deception and sustains itself in the same manner. Jesus Christ said that the end times deception and the false prophets and teachers of the end times would almost fool the very elect, God's most precious and treasured people, very few of us fall into that category only those who have walked with him a long time and suffered for his namesake. If the very elect can almost be fooled, how about the rest?Bush is supported by the large 'broad way4' christians and the apostate religious establishment in America. This should really give those who really know our God pause to consider, because false religion and the false prophet are key to the man of sin's powerbase. So get this into your minds, the ten kings, and seven heads are not going to announce “we are the ten kings and seven heads of revelation and we are here to take you to hell”. The false prophets of Babylon are not going to correctly identify them either, even if they know who they are, they will certainly not tell you. The devil is going to do his level best to fool you when they come onto the scene and the devil should never ever be underestimated, HE IS A MASTER DECEIVER. I tell you that most of you are going to be tricked because you will be told (by popular ministries, web sites, prophets, even by most of the not so popular ones etc.) to look 'in the west' when Bible prophecy is being fulfilled in the east or right in front of your (slumbering and deceived) eyes. So jettison your preconceived notions and the teachings of the many in Babylon's conundrum of biblical confusion and study the word diligently for yourself.
Conclusion: Do not write me with your defense and praises of this man. I frankly do not want to hear it. Go to the false Shepard's of Babylon, the prophets that prophecy for money or the high priests of mammon and the rest of this man's supporters who lavish praise and money on him, if you want to hear kind words spoken of those who are deceiving Christ's sheep. I am not among them and you will not find such people counted among my friends or acquaintances. I give you solemn warning in the name of the LORD, he will hold you accountable for how you vote; it is an act of your will and an act of approval, it is an act that holds consequences for you and much of the world, especially the innocent blood shed in Christ's name. It is because of people like our President and the apostate Church that supports him that God's name is blasphemed the world over. If you think God is not going to hold you very much accountable you are sadly mistaken. Think twice before you enter that ballot box, vote as though the fate of our planet and your own soul depended on your single solitary vote. Do not let your vote be a negative act; that is voting, not for someone but against someone. This is the trick of the Devil and always gives you the lesser of two evils, and the lesser of two evils is still and always evil.
Take heed and remember every work will be brought into judgment, every single solitary work.
Even so come Lord Jesus! Amen.
This article was written last year (2003) but never posted. It is just a reworked 'working paper' and not an article per se and so I know there are some grammatical and spelling errors. I know there is much that is not covered in here so before you rant and rave as so many of you do in your e-mails, a somewhat longer article on this can be found on this site in an article called Who Is The Antichrist.
Finally. I am not interested if you agree with me or not. Frankly your 'agreement' and 'approval' is of no importance to me. The only thing I ask is that you read these pages prayerfully, in faith, honestly and clearheadedly. Also, you should look into these matters with your Bibles OPEN.
The heads thereof judge for reward, and the priests thereof teach for hire, and the prophets thereof divine for money: yet will they lean upon the LORD, and say, [Is] not the LORD among us? none evil can come upon us.
Take heed you men of God who sell your prophesies and take care those of you who listen to them. I say again, take heed!
Your servant in Christ,
1Chaldeans is another world for Babylon
2That thou shalt take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and say, How hath the oppressor ceased! the golden city ceased! The LORD hath broken the staff of the wicked, [and] the sceptre of the rulers. He who smote the people in wrath with a continual stroke, he that ruled the nations in anger, is persecuted, [and] none hindereth. The whole earth is at rest, [and] is quiet: they break forth into singing. Yea, the fir trees rejoice at thee, [and] the cedars of Lebanon, [saying], Since thou art laid down, no feller is come up against us. Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet [thee] at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, [even] all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations. All they shall speak and say unto thee, Art thou also become weak as we? art thou become like unto us? Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, [and] the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee. How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! [how] art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, [and] consider thee, [saying, Is] this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms; [That] made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; [that] opened not the house of his prisoners?
A nation that chastises others nations, that has prisoners that it will not release (and tortures) sit as the pre-eminent nation among nations is pompous and arrogant... now who does that sound like? Iceland? Norway? Malaysia? Chad? Well...you figure it out if your spiritual eyes have not been blinded.
3I am highly skeptical of this interpretation nevertheless I know many do and believe that while a treaty is quite possible, it is probably not referred to in Danie's, 70 week prophecy.
4Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide [is] the gate, and broad [is] the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
