For time and memorial, well at least since the Book of Revelation was first penned, people have pointed an accusatory finger at various luminaries, and crowned them “The Antichrist”. For whatever reason, some more apparent than others, this dubious title has been bestowed upon the following: Adolf Hitler, Napoleon Bonaparte, Barack Obama, John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan, Mikhail Gorbachev, and Henry Kissinger. This is only but seven of hundreds of people who have been accused of being “The False Prophet”.
So, is the Antichrist in the White House? Well, It appears, for the most part, that when you don the title of Pope, President, or any other World Leader label, you are automatically suspected of such. That being said, the newest contender for this role is not a world leader, at least not yet anyway, but he does have the President’s ear, as well as his daughter. Enter world stage right…Jared Kushner, husband of Ivanka Trump and Senior White House Advisor to the President.
Truth be told, it really doesn’t take much to become The Antichrist, in the eyes of some. Take Ronald Reagan for instance, his accusation was based on his full name, Ronald Wilson Reagan, being code for the number of the beast. Each of his three names consisted of six letters…666. Speaking of the number of the beast, John F. Kennedy’s accusation was the result of his receiving Democratic approval with 666 votes.
I could go on, but I’ll leave you to follow up on the others if you wish, and we’ll now focus on the reasoning behind the accusations leveled at Kushener.
The Number of the Beast
Revelations 13:18 “Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is 666.”
Kushner Companies, of which Jared is the CEO, paid $1.8 billion for an office block in New York, whose address is 666 Fifth Avenue. He then invested another $6.6 billion to have it renovated. As most of this money was borrowed, it begs the question, Why was it so important that Kushner purchase this address?
The Mark of the Beast
Revelations 13:16 “Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name.”
Housed within 666 Fifth Avenue, is Lucent Technologies who are conducting research into Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) Chips. These chips carry personal information, and can be implanted into the body. RFID chips are commonly used as tracking devices, and can be found in industries such as the Automotive, Livestock, Sports and Security. There are those who believe that it wont be too long before implanted chips carrying all our data will be commonly used. In fact, implanting pets and children, should they become lost, is a thriving industry.
A translation of Daniel 9:27 states that the antichrist will confirm a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians, and this agreement will mark the beginning of the final seven years to Armageddon.
President Trump has assigned Kushner to attend the Middle East talks and broker a Middle peace deal. But why is this any different from any other time someone has been sent to broker a peace deal in the Middle East. Well, unlike his predecessors who no doubt spent years studying the middle eastern conflict before attempting a peace agreement, Jared became “well informed on the Middle East” while waiting ten minutes for a ski-lift to arrive on a slope in Aspen, Colorado. President Trump has since went on record saying that he wants to reach an agreement before the end of his term in 2021.
I must admit, out of the host of reasons that I’ve read for calling others “The Antichrist”, the case for Kushner has me on the fence, but leaning greatly towards the “I don’t think so” side. The reason for my doubt, is that I have this niggling feeling that if Kushner was really him, then why would he be so blatant about it. Surely, he would go about his business in a subtler manner. And surely, he is aware of the Book of Revelation if not the million and one other books and movies out there giving us the heads-up on what to look out for!
However, is The Antichrist not also known as the Master of Deception. Perhaps being so obvious about it is the best deception of all.
What say you?
