Walid Shoebat - Prophecy 101
Walid Shoebat here in his right element, presenting his conclusions concerning the hidden and quite disturbing apocalyptic patterns within Christian and Islamic scripture. His conclusions are convincing thousands of Christians, thus alerting them to the brutal aspirations inherent to Islam. And his direction of thought is being reasserted by other interpreters seeking to affirm a connection between the book of revelations and the ottoman empire, the Anti-Christ and the twelfth and final Imam, Muhammad al-Mahdi.
They are both believed to be hidden but currently alive. But whereas the Antichrist will be bringing a reign of terror to the world, the Muhammad al-Mahdi is supposed to emerge with Jesus and bring peace and justice upon us. Now, keeping in mind the teachings of the Quran, these events might be the very same, simply seen from opposite religious perspectives. Maybe the Muhammad al-Mahdi is really the Anti-christ, and the promised terror reign a new Ottoman empire?
...And where does Obama stand in all this?
Sidenote: How ever one might feel about prophecy it is evident that if billiions of people urge for particular events to happen, it increases their probability.

(الإمام محمد بن الحسن المهدى) also known as Hujjat ibn al-Hasan (15th Sha‘bān 255 AH - unknown date ; approximately July 29, 869 - unknown date) is the individual believed by Twelver Shī‘a Muslims to be the the Māhdī, the ultimate savior of humankind and the final Imām of the Twelve Imams. Twelver Shī‘a believe that al-Māhdī was born in 869 and did not die but rather was hidden by God (this is referred to as the Occultation) and will later emerge with Jesus in order to fulfill their mission of bringing peace and justice to the world. Sunnīs and other Shī‘ah schools, do not consider ibn-al-Hasan to be the Māhdī.
The words antichrist and antichrists appear in the First and Second Epistle of John. The word is not capitalized in most translations of the Bible, including the original King James Version.
1 John chapter 2 refers to many antichrists present at the time while warning of one Antichrist that is coming.The "many antichrists" belong to the same spirit as that of the one Antichrist. John wrote that such antichrists deny "that Jesus is the Christ", "the Father and the Son", and would "not confess Jesus came in the flesh." Likewise, the one Antichrist denies the Father and the Son.
Theologian William Barclay comments in the Daily Study Bible that "antichrist is not so much a person as a principle, the principle which is actively opposed to God and which may well be thought of as incarnating itself in those in every generation who have seemed to be blatant opponents of God."
This one Antichrist is spoken of in more detail by Paul in 2 Thessalonians chapter 2. Paul uses the term man of sin to describe what John identifies as the Antichrist. Paul writes that this Man of Sin (sometimes translated son of perdition) will possess a number of characteristics. These include "sitting in the temple", opposing himself against anything that is worshiped, claiming divine authority, working all kinds of counterfeit miracles and signs, and doing all kinds of evil. Paul notes that "the mystery of lawlessness"(though not the Man of Sin himself) was working in secret already during his day and will continue to function until being destroyed on the Last Day. His identity is to be revealed after that which is restraining him is removed.
The term is also often applied to prophecies regarding a "Little horn" power in Daniel 7. Daniel 9:27 mentions an "abomination that causes desolations" setting itself up in a "wing" or a "pinnacle" of the temple. Some scholars interpret this as referring to the Antichrist. Some commentators also view the verses prior to this as referring to the Antichrist. Jesus refers to the references about abomination from Daniel 9:27, 11:31, and 12:11 in Matthew 24:15 and Mark 13:14when he warns about the destruction of Jerusalem. Daniel 11:36-37 speaks of a self exalting king, considered by some to be the Antichrist.
Antiochus Epiphanes attempted to replace worship of Yahweh with veneration of himself, and was referred to in the Daniel 8:32-25 prophecy. His command to worship false gods and desecration of the temple was seen by Jerome as prefiguring the Antichrist.
Some identify him as being in league with (or the same as) several figures in the Book of Revelation including the Dragon, the Beast, the False Prophet, and the Whore of Babylon.
