Over the years, I have meditated about the anti-Christ, and his possible identity. Among those I have considered is Osama Bin Laden.
Let us remember something though about this coming man, the anti-Christ. He must be slain, and resurrected, according to the Bible.
This person, and his death, must be profoundly public, on a world wide basis, for the entire Earth will wonder...HOW?...and evidently most will then believe his claim that he is god almighty.
Let us look at one of the strangest prophecies in the Bible; the advent of the anti-Christ; The Beast.
1. And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
2. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
3. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
4. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
5. And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
6. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
7. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
8. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
Believe it or not, Bin Laden is a possibility...of course, unlikely. I believe though, that the anti-Christ will be an Islamic general type, and be killed publicly, and then appears alive and well.
Watch the current boiling over in the Arab and Islamic nations. I think that a Caliphate is forming...a United States of Islam...and when this happens, and if Pakistan falls...Nuclear Warheads will be in their possession....and counting all of Islam in their possible war draft [soldiers]...they could draw from a billion and a half. 200 million would be possible easily.
Someone will lead it, and be that beastly man, and this one must be killed, and rise again. This one, and his armies will murder anyone, from infant to aged in the name of their god, Allah, if the knee is not bowed.
The infidels must die, or worship the devil god of murder, Allah.
It is going to come to pass..Jesus prophesied it, as did Paul...
3. "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4. Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God."
