Will the Antichrist be a US president?
It’s EXTREMELY doubtful. Dr. Thomas Ice recently did a study on whether or not the United States is referred to in Scripture, and there is perhaps one or two references to America, such as Ezek. 38:13
Thus saith the Lord GOD; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought: 11 And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates, 12 To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that aregathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land. 13 Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?
Ezek 38:10-13 (KJV)
This reference to “merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof” is the best reference – but I doubt it, personally, as Tarshish is identified with Spain. The Young Lions would be the rulers of nations established by Spain, and at best, would refer to Spain and Portugal… Whether the United States is included in that, is very doubtful.
As there is no outright references to the United States, it is likely that the Antichrist comes from Europe, possibly even Rome.
I Read the Antichrist is supposed to be Syrian/Jewish/Roman. Is this true?
Nobody will know until after the Rapture the nationality of the Antichrist. The Syrian theory is based upon Antiochus Epiphanes being a type of the Antichrist, and he was Syrian. But as Thomas Ice pointed out, Adolph Hitler was also a type of the Antichrist, and Alexander the Great was as well. The Jewish identification of the Antichrist is from people guessing that Jews will not follow a man who is not Jewish. I personally believe the Antichrist will be Roman.
I’ve seen enough in the last 20 years to convince me anyone will follow the Antichrist, unless they are awakened to his evil. So is the Antichrist Jewish? I don’t know. Probably not. You tell me.
