It is with deception that the AntiMessiah comes…

This is my argument that Trump is the AntiMessiah…

ONE: Who the Antichrist is not…

The Prophecy teachers of the seventies worked off of some very false assumptions and in a vacuum of information. They could not have even imagined the world we live in today. Unfortunately, most Christians today have taken those teachings to heart, as if they were Scripture.

These people were firm believers in a Rapture that would remove all American Christians from the scene before the first hint of suffering could occur… They were, to a man, committed believers in a PreTrib Rapture. They were wrong.

While they might have been reticent to state it plainly, they all believed that the United States was the Kingdom of God on earth and that America would continue to represent the God of Heaven until the day of the PreTrib Rapture.

They believed that all of the descriptions of end times bad guys were speaking of one man whom they called Antichrist. The fact that one of these men came from Assyria and the other from Rome did not matter at all… they just ground them all up like hamburger, stuffed them in a mold and baked up an Antichrist. From this comes all of the silly arguments about how this verse says he is an Assyrian and this verse says that he is from Rome and my verse is right and your verse is wrong nonsense…

The Antichrist they baked up was a very bad man… He attacked and conquered Israel. He was so evil that no one who ever went to Sunday School could be deceived… He came on the scene as evil incarnate. But the Bible says that the Jews will accept him as Messiah and that the deception will be so good that without celestial intervention, even the Elect would be deceived… (How the Elect who were raptured and in Heaven might be deceived, I have no idea.)

TWO: The AntiMessiah is a Messiah.

John 5:43 “I have come in My Father’s name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, you will receive him…”

2 Thessalonians 2: 3 … the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God. /// 9 that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders, 10 and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. 11 For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false…

Ezekiel, Obadiah, and other prophets are in agreement that when the nations, and their evil leaders, attack Israel, God himself will destroy them. Obadiah tells us that “Esau will be left with no descendants. Edom will be destroyed… It is also very clear that the one who defeats Edom (generic for the enemies of Israel) will be from the Ten Tribes and not from Judah… The Jewish site,, says “”The House of Jacob will be a fire and the House of Joseph a flame, and the House of Esau for stubble.” (Obadiah 1:18): “the progeny of Esau shall be delivered only into the hands of the progeny of Joseph.” (Ten Tribes) This would mean that a Jew from the house of Josef destroys Edom…

According to 2 Thessalonians, the Man of Sin (Apollo) will sit in the Temple and call himself God. This forces us to understand that the Temple is built and the Antichrist has access to it. I believe that this is at the three and a half year mark. Up to this point, the Jews have accepted him as Messiah… Now, they realize that he is evil, they run to the wilderness where they are hidden by God and the AntiMessiah starts his war against the Saints…

THREE: Two Messiahs

If we understand that the AntiMessiah is to be Israel’s Messiah, it is helpful to understand who the Jews are looking for. When Jesus came, they rejected him because their Rabbis had long taught that Messiah would ride into Jerusalem on a horse, raise an army, defeat all of Israel’s enemies and rule the world from David’s throne… They are still looking for that guy, only they have split him into two Messiahs. You might understand their concept better if I called the first Messiah an Anti-John the Baptist, and the second Messiah the King of Israel and the Son of David…

This is from and tells us of Mashiach Ben Yosef… Whom they have openly identified as Donald Trump.

The principal and final function ascribed to Mashiach ben Yossef is of political and military nature. He shall wage war against the forces of evil that oppress Israel. More specifically, he will do battle against Edom, the descendants of Esau.5 Edom is the comprehensive designation of the enemies of Israel,6 and it will be crushed through the progeny of Joseph. Thus it was prophesied of old, “The House of Jacob will be a fire and the House of Joseph a flame, and the House of Esau for stubble..” (Obadiah 1:18): “the progeny of Esau shall be delivered only into the hands of the progeny of Joseph.”

This ultimate confrontation between Joseph and Esau is alluded already in the very birth of Joseph when his mother Rachel exclaimed, “G‑d has taken away my disgrace” (Genesis 30:23): with prophetic vision she foresaw that an “anointed savior” will descend from Joseph and that he will remove the disgrace of Israel. In this context she called his name “Yossef, saying ‘yossef Hashem – may G‑d add to me ben acher (lit., another son), i.e., ben acharono shel olam – one who will be at the end of the world’s time,’ from which it follows that ‘meshu’ach milchamah – one anointed for battle’ will descend from Joseph.”

The immediate results of this war will be disastrous: Mashiach ben Yossef will be killed. This is described in the prophecy of Zechariah, who says of this tragedy that “they shall mourn him as one mourns for an only child.” (Zechariah 12:10). His death will be followed by a period of great calamities. These new tribulations shall be the final test for Israel, and shortly thereafter Mashiach ben David shall come, avenge his death, resurrect him, and inaugurate the Messianic era of everlasting peace and bliss.[i]

This is who they are looking for, and this is who they will get. They have been firm and repetitive in their belief that Donald Trump is Mashiach Ben Yosef. I believe that they are right…

FOUR: Donald as Messiah

THE DONALD: Let us start with the very name. Names are usually appropriate to the person identified with the moniker. That was especially true in the Bible. It is truer in some cultures than others, but even today, we should examine the names of the powerful.

Donald – Scottish, Gaelic: World Ruler.

When he is called “The Donald” That becomes much more specific… THE WORLD RULER.

Donald calls himself Messiah…

Donald looked up at Heaven, pointed and said, “I am the Chosen One!”[ii]

A few days later, he tweeted, “Thank you to Wayne Allyn Root for the very nice words. “President Trump is the greatest President for Jews and for Israel in the history of the world, not just America, he is the best President for Israel in the history of the world…and the Jewish people in Israel love him like he’s the King of Israel. They love him like he is the second coming of God…”[iii]

This is accepting and reveling in titles that belong only to Jesus Christ. Donald Trump is claiming to be the Messiah. But why did Wayne Allyn Root say those things? Because they are true… The Jews in Israel are openly calling him Messiah and assigning titles like “King of Israel” and “Second Coming of God”. To the man, they are convinced that he is the one they have been waiting for…

The deception is strong… We have an arrogant, blasphemous man, who calls himself the Chosen One and revels in the titles Second Coming of God and King of Israel, who is being accepted as Messiah by the conservative Rabbis in Israel. This man commands the most powerful military in the world, he is pro-Israel, he recognized Jerusalem and the Golan, he moved the embassy, (Miracles on a par with Moses, according to the Rabbis) he kissed the wailing wall and he is known to support the building of the Third Temple. Add to that, he is offering the Peace Treaty of the Century to bring “Peace and Safety” to Israel. With all that, Christians, still buried in the nonsense taught by their highly acclaimed prophecy teachers, continue to follow him and to assert boldly that “he cannot be the Antichrist because my Bible teacher said…”

It is with deception that the AntiMessiah comes… Perhaps it is time for you to throw out those old prophecy books and see how Donald Trump actually does fit the Biblical description of the AntiMessiah… He is neither the Assyrian nor the Roman but he is the Man of Sin and the AntiMessiah…

  1. While reading your outstanding piece, I came across your reference to 2 Thessalonians on the Man of Sin (Apollo) and was really floored. Just prior to coming here, I was skimming a rather long article called “Eretz Israel & the Last Trump” (can’t vouch for it because I haven’t finished it yet). In the part “The Last Trump” here’s the caption:

    Donald Trump’s 66th floor penthouse displays his idol, the ‘Sun God’ Apollo, Riding Across the Sky in a Horse-Drawn Chariot. Then it shows the actual mural.

    Apparently Trump has statues and paintings of Apollyon all over his apartment–an apartment featured in the 1997 movie “The Devil’s Advocate,” which has as one of its main characters a man obviously based on Trump.

    Wow, Preacher, I’ve got to say you’ve really been nailing it recently! God bless!
