Thiel: Obama is NOT the Final Antichrist, Tribulation Will Begin After He Leaves Office


Bob Thiel, the Official online face and public spokesman for Living Church of God beliefs and polices, wants you to know that Obama is not going to be the antichrist that will send all Americans to be love slaves in Europe.  That will start after he leaves office.  The President will just be laying the ground works.

The voters of the USA decided, overall, to go down a similar path, which means more debt, more moral decline, more regulation, and more governmental gridlock.  And those who pay the disproportionate share of the taxes in the United States will be expected to pay more taxes, and probably in several weeks.
That being said, let me state that Barack Obama is not the final Antichrist like some on the internet have claimed.

Yes, I do believe that he is “apocalyptic,” meaning that he has and will take steps that will lead to the destruction of the United States–although I do not believe that the great tribulation will begin until AFTER his next term ends.

Habakkuk 2 makes clear that at the appointed time of the end, a great borrowing people will be destroyed (Habakkuk 2:3-8).  Something similar is in Deuteronomy 28:42-51.  No nation in the history of humankind has ever accumulated as much debt as the United States of America (because the U.K. may have close to the highest amount of per capita debt,[xvi] its fate would seem to be similar).  Yet, the relationship between debt accumulation and prophesied destruction remains unapparent to many.

And although President Obama inherited a debt-laden nation, his policies, according to his own public pronouncements, have lead and will continue to lead to greatly increased U.S.A. debt.  These increases of debt are likely to continue past the point of no return and become one of the final factors that will cause creditors to rise up and destroy the U.S.A.

It seems clear that during his presidency, Barack Obama has been an apocalyptic enabler in the sense that his policies are helping lead to the rise of the prophesied final Kings of the North and South that Daniel 11 discusses, while weakening the U.S.A. militarily, morally, economically, and agriculturally.  Nothing from his administration thus far suggests that he will call for meaningful massive repentance and turning back to God.

Therefore, President Obama (who is now U.S.A. President and perhaps will be until 2017) is apocalyptic.

Why does Thiel feel as if he has to offer this "insight" as to the significance of yesterday's election? Are there actually people in the ACOGs who believe that Obama is the final Antichrist?

Once again, Thiel is simply indulging in a guessing game, based on failed Herbal prophetic models for non-second comings past. The prophets of old did not equivocate about their source and validity. They boldly stated, "Thus saith the Lord".

Armstrongist rantings have proven to be inaccurate, and unreliable for the purpose of patterning one's life. But, send your tithes and generous offerings to........, where Mr. .............. is doing a great and powerful end time work!

Since Robert Thiel has been so wrong in the past about his predictions (Baron Karl zu Guttenburg, for example), might we assume that Obama WILL be the final Antichrist??!!?!!!

The latest election results should encourage Bob Theil, since they afford many more romantic and scenic settings where he can marry The Baron.

This makes me laugh. Anti-Christ indeed. Tribulation still coming soon. Ha, ha, ha, chortle.

As I told a lady who handed me a cheap tract while I was taking Lions donations at Safeway, they'll still be waiting for the Jesus no show two thousand years from now, if the human race lucks out enough to survive that long.

He might be the most incompetent president we ever had. How did he ever get elected the first time? Even more perplexing is how he ever got re-elected? The only explanation I can think of is that he is skillful in the art mind control. Do I think he is the anti-christ? Rediculous!! He reminds me more of HWA on steroids.

Assuming of course the Baron is willing! And he might be!

the most incompetent president we ever had

Does that include Jimmy Carter and Millard Fillmore?

History will have 4 more years of data.

Maybe the campaigning can stop now and the President can start doing his job.

Certainly he's not the most incompetent president we've ever had. Bush 43 was much less competent. He might be the furthest to the left president we've ever had, but that's different.

Boob is right about the great tribulation not happening during the next four years. He's wrong about it happening after that though. There isn't going to be any such thing as an "apocalypse." Yes, mankind will continue to fight, and we'll probably have more world wars, and we might even wipe ourselves off the face of the earth. But none of that will be what the biblethumpers believe.

Mind control? "Most incompetent president ever"?

Regardless of what your political leaning is, I don't reasonable people would agree. It's OK, the sun will come up tomorrow like it always does. In four years you will get another chance and people like Thiel will be speculating on the next guy.
