"Obama, not the antichrist"

If you take God's Word as fact then Obama is not the antichrist. And I believe that after presenting you with the facts from scripture that you will come to the same conclusion I did---Obama is not the antichrist. Deception seems to me to be running rampant concerning this topic. Let me present the facts and you draw your own conclusion.
Staying within the Book of Revelation, what do we know about this first beast we have named the antichrist? We know that from Revelation 13 that---
1) He literally or figuratively rises up out of the sea.
2) He literally or figuratively has seven heads and ten horns and on these ten horns are ten crowns and on his heads a blasphemous name.
3) He literally or figuratively was like a leopard, had feet like a bear and a mouth like a lion.
4) One of his literal or figurative heads was mortally wounded and that deadly wound was healed.
5) The whole world at some point marveled at and followed this beast.
6) The dragon (Satan) gave authority (great powers) to the beast. (God's word says they are one and the same---"So they worshipped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast--)
7) He was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies and he was given authority to continue with these blasphemies for 42 months.
8) Then, after 42 months he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven.
9) It was granted to him to make war with the saints and overcome them.
10) Authority was given to him over every tribe, tongue, and nation. All who dwell on the earth will worship him except those whose names have been written in the Book of Life.
We know from Revelation 17 that----
11) Here this beast with seven heads and ten horns (same beast as in Rev.13) is portrayed literally or figuratively as a scarlet beast.
12) He is working in an evil concert with a global organization figurative portrayed as a woman (more on the woman later)
13) He this beast was (alive), and is not (he died), and will ascend out of the bottomless pit (to appear to be alive again) and go to perdition (ruin, damnation, hell) at the end of his rein. And as in chapter 13 all the world will marvel (be completely sucked in and deceived) except those whose names were written in the Book of Life when they see the beast that was (alive), and is not, (he died) and yet is. (alive again)
14) The seven heads of this beast represent seven kings.
15)Then we find out that this beast is one of the seven kings. God also gives us a riddle about these kings to further help us distinguish who this beast is.  When John the writer of Revelation saw this vision of the kings he said, "Five have fallen, (died) one is,(the king John was focused on) and the other is yet to come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time. The beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eight, and is of the seven, and is going to perdition.
16) Then we find out that the ten horns of this beast represent 10 kings who have no kingdom yet, but will receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast. They will be of "one mind" and will give their power and authority to the beast.
This is most of the description God has given us in Revelation about the first beast, the one we call the antichrist. Keep in mind that God doesn't lie, so Obama would have to fulfill all of these 16 descriptions above completely without error to be the antichrist. And whereas Obama could be a fit for many of the descriptions or attributes he is not a match for several of them which means he cannot possibly be the beast of whom we speak but quit possibly he is part of the deception. Besides, Obama is much too obvious a candidate so how could he deceive the majority of the planet as God has stated?
After much study and I believe Godly discernment there is someone I believe who perfectly fulfills the descriptions God has laid out concerning this coming beast who will marvel the world. And as God has warned us the deception will "suck in" everyone except those whose names are in the Book of Life. What or whom could pull off a deception that would fool the whole world? If you remember God stated twice (which means pay close attention) that the only ones that would pick up on this deception are the ones whose names are written in the Book of Life and the vast majority of those people will be gone in the rapture. Result---great deception easily carried out.
Now let me tell you a story of the near future as I see it that will fulfill the 16 descriptions above and more concerning this coming beast we call the antichrist and how he will pull off the greatest deception ever leveled on mankind.
Soon the rapture will happen and the Book of Life saints will be taken from the planet. I believe this event will be accompanied by a world wide earthquake and great volcanic activity that will prevent the sunlight from getting through (darken the sun) and make the moon appear red like blood. When the raptured saints leave this planet I believe our atmosphere or sky above will roll up like a scroll, maybe as we enter another dimension. 
Extreme chaos and great fear will be the order of the day and the whole left behind world will be looking for answers. Scripture says that our world leaders will be hiding in caves petrified by fear of what is happening on the planet. Out of this chaos will step the antichrist and he will have all the answers as to what just happened. Because this man and the dragon, Satan, are one and the same, he will be able to perform great signs, wonders and miracles to deceive the planet and convince them to follow his every command. ("So they worshipped the dragon, who gave authority to the beast, and they worshiped the beast") But the most amazing aspect of all is that this man is someone the whole planet already knows who has apparently just come back from the dead. ("And the whole world marveled"--- "He was, and is not, and yet is".)  He was one of seven kings from a kingdom that was established in 1929. He was the sixth king. The present king, the seventh king has now gone missing so he (being back) will be king again, the eighth.
This king (beast) rose up out of the sea---The Holy See. He was mortally wounded when he was king, he was shot but recovered. (remember king is synonymous with head so he doesn't have to be shot in the head, just mortally wounded)  He is the head of a world wide organization that encompasses peoples, multitudes, nations and tongues which is portrayed as a woman. And this organization can be identified by it's colors, implements and characteristics. It's primary colors are scarlet and purple. It's implements are golden cups (chalices), gold and silver, precious stones and pearls, fine linen and purple, silk and scarlet, every kind of citron wood, every kind of object of ivory, every kind of object of precious wood, iron and marble, cinnamon and incense, fragrant oil and frankincense, wine and oil, fine flour and wheat, cattle and sheep, horses and chariots, and bodies and souls of men. It has been characterized over the centuries as being shrouded in mystery. It's system has been known as Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots, and the abominations of the earth. And for murdering millions of true Christians. ("drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus")
This organization has a ruling branch or division that already has the planet split up into ten parts. This branch has had no prior world power but will now be given power by the beast and these ten commanders (horns) will control the planet for a period of time.  Their world headquarters will be Rome, Italy. ("And the woman you saw is also a great city which reigns over the earth". "A city built on seven mountains which the woman sits".)
This beast will be a great orator and blasphemer on the world stage and will do so for 42 months. Then, he will open his mouth and blaspheme against God, blaspheme God's name, God's tabernacle, and those that dwell in heaven. My interpretation of this is, that the beast at this point after 42 months will declare himself to be God, tell lies and falsehoods about the true God, about heaven, and about those who dwell in heaven. Now that he has declared himself God he will disallow any religious services on earth to any God but himself. All on earth will be forced to worship him and take his mark or face death. And at this point he will declare war on the earthly believers who believe in the true God and will overcome them.
At some point he and his ten kings will make war with the Lamb (Jesus) and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is the Lord of lords and the King of kings.
Now there is only one person who can fulfill all the descriptions laid out in God's Word that were detailed above and that is Pope John Paul II. He will orchestrate the biggest con job in history when he or his likeness returns from the dead, is indwelled by Satan, uses the Roman Catholic Church to form a one world religion and a one world government, uses the Catholic Jesuits who are aligned with the Masons who have already split the world in ten parts to control the planet under the direction of the beast / antichrist / pope / John Paul II / dragon / satan.
The Word says that on his (beast) head will be a blasphemous name. Remember head means king and in this case also means Pope. So does the Pope have a blasphemous name? The Pope is called the Vicar of Christ on earth, pretty much meaning that he is God on earth. He is not, and I would consider that about as blasphemous as you can get.
If you remember from world history the Vatican was not its own country until 1929 and the kings of that country are the popes. And if you solve God's riddle about these seven kings and the eight king (the one who was mortally wounded) and establish that the woman who rides this beast is the Roman Catholic Church from the many many pointed damming descriptions of said organization. Then it would be more than prudent to also acknowledge and adhere to God's warning concerning this church in Revelation 18 where He says----"Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. For her sins have reached to heaven and God has remembered her iniquities."
So please don't keep saying Obama is the antichrist----his foot doesn't fit in the slipper
