Anythings possible but i think its fairly arrogant for us to think a person as obscure yet important would come from the US at all, let alone our government. Afterall the anti-christ will be someone who at first is wildly popular and beloved by all the WORLD as he (or she) seems to effectively deal with the worlds problems. I really do not see any of our US politicians becoming wildly popular or accepted world wide by anyone. They arent even widely popular HERE.
No, the 666 antichrist number was understood as a reference to Nero who ruled from 54 - 68 with the book of Revelations being written about 95. - " Testament manuscripts, the number is rendered as 666, but the variant 616 is found in critical editions of the Greek text, such as the Novum Testamentum Graece. In the 19th century James Austin Bastow identified the number as having symbolic correlation to the Emperor Nero, whose Greek name transliterated into Hebrew has the numeric value of 666, whereas his Latin name written into Hebrew is 616." http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Number_of_the_beast - The Oxyrhynchus Papyrus is the oldest known copy of the Book of Revelation.Close examination of this fragment indicates the mark of the beast is 616, not 666.With all the theories out there about who the Antichrist is, I wonder how this affects those theories. http://heavenawaits.wordpress.com/616-not-666/
Not currently. Revaluations 5:8. All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast?all whose names have not been written in the book of life belonging to the Lamb that was slain from the creation of the world.? This indicates that everyone will worship the antichrist. Everyone will find him worthy to follow as a "new world order". One world government. If you are suggesting our current president is the antichrist, while I believe his motives are CERTAINLY self serving and unAmerican there are entirely too many people who see that and recognize him for the fraud he is. He is a long way from able to convince enough people to follow him in a one world order. Nor do I see anyone else on the horizon who would meet that criteria. Nope... Things have got to get much worse. End times prophesy is terrifying if you are not a follower of Christ.
