The Islamic Messiah, Revisited

You'll remember some time back, I posted an article comparing the expected Islamic "Messiah" with our Biblical Antichrist. To save you time in reading that whole article, here is a link that'll take you directly to the comparison of the Antichrist and the true Messiah, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

In light of that post, I'd like to point you to this article I just ran into. Let me tease you with the following excerpt from the article:

"A video has been newly posted on YouTube in which the radical Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan says of Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama: "The Messiah is absolutely speaking.""

Hummm. I wonder if that makes this "gaffe" make more sense now?

I seem to remember something in God's Word about things like this from Mark 13:

20 “Unless the Lord had shortened those days, no 1life would have been saved; but for the sake of the elect, whom He chose, He shortened the days.
21 “And then if anyone says to you, ‘Behold, here is 1the Christ’; or, ‘Behold, He is there’; do not believe him;
22 for false Christs and afalse prophets will arise, and will show signs and bwonders, in order to lead astray, if possible, the elect.
23 “But take heed; behold, I have told you everything in advance."

Now, I'm not one to go around making sloppy guesses, but here we have one of the biggies in Islam making reference to Obama as "the Messiah". Islam is looking for the soon return of the Antichrist (a.k.a. their 'messiah') who is a tool of the devil. Obama is slick. Obama is very charismatic. Obama is the self-proclaimed "Citizen of the World" that doesn't travel abroad as an American. No flag on his plane...which might offend some overseas. No. Plastering campaign posters at the western wall as if campaigning for world leader (and yes, I believe he was and still is). And Oh! "We are the ones We've been waiting for...". Not only that, there is a big push for globalism in finance, government and even religion. And if that isn't enough, Israel is preparing to rebuild the Temple, which will be present at the time of Antichrist. They're just waiting for control of the mount so they can build it. They have all the accessories made, such as the candleabra and the tools for the Priest. All they're waiting for is the temple!

Louis Farrakhan is a Muslim. To refer to Obama as "Messiah" without meaning the Islamic Messiah would make him guilty of blasphemy under Islamic law. For those who just insist on believing that Barack Obama has to be a Christian just because he claims he's one, please wake up! The game is over! The cat is out of the bag!

Sure. Tell me that Louis Farrakhan believes Obama is a Christian. Make - me - laugh!
