Is Donald Trump the Antichrist?

Trump

U.S. President Donald Trump is always in the news. He’s an unusual figure in American Politics because he comes conducts himself in a way that many in politics are not used to.

Trump is also polarizing figure. People either love him or hate him. Trump is so polarizing that I’ve received many comments and questions from people who wonder whether he is the Antichrist.

In this article, I will address whether Donald Trump is the Antichrist.

Observations About Trump & the Antichrist

First, I want to make it clear that I will try my best to analyze Trump as neutrally as I can. I may have some positive or some negative things to say about Trump. Please understand that I do this as an analyst rather than someone who is a Trump opponent or is a Trump supporter.

I will proceed by stating some observations about Trump and compare these observations with many people’s expectation of the Antichrist.

Pride & Ego

Trump is a very prideful man, to say the least. He likes to boast about himself and rarely admits when he’s made a mistake publicly.

Meanwhile, Daniel 11:36 and Daniel 8:25 suggest that the Antichrist will have an immense ego:

“And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.” (Daniel 11:36)

“And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.” (Daniel 8:25)

Mideast Peace Negotiator

Trump often boasts about the foreign policy deals he’s made. He’s said on occasion that he wants to try to broker the hardest deal of them all: a Mideast peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians.

Meanwhile, many expect Antichrist to help confirm a Mideast peace deal-the “covenant with many” in Daniel 9:27:

“And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.” (Daniel 9:27)

Charismatic Leader

Trump is a skilled speaker. He is adept at speaking publicly with or without relying on a teleprompter.

Some skeptics question the substance of what Trump says. But, Trump is able to endear himself to a large number of Americans with what he says and the style that he says it.

Meanwhile, many people expect Antichrist to be a demagogue who uses his charisma to attract people to his side as he accumulates power.

Do I Think Trump the Antichrist?

Based on these statements, you might conclude that I think Donald Trump is the Antichrist. However, I strongly believe that Donald Trump is not the Antichrist. Here are several reasons why:

Super Popular vs Super Unpopular

Revelation 6:1-2 depicts Antichrist as a rider on a white horse. This imagery suggests that Antichrist may become so popular that the world will view him as a messianic figure:

“(1) And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. (2) And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.” (Revelation 6:1-2)

Trump is the farthest thing from being viewed as a messianic figure by the world.

  • Many people dislike Trump and will go to great lengths to protest against him and to resist him.
  • Some of Trump’s opponents do not view him as the world’s savior but as one of the world’s biggest threats.

Trump will never command the admiration of the world like the Antichrist will.

The Desire of Women

Daniel 11 indicates that the Antichrist will not be someone who will desire women in his life:

“Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.” (Daniel 11:37)

Trump has been married multiple times and is currently married to his wife Melania (with whom they have a son named Barron).

The Peak of Arrogance

The Antichrist will sit in a temple in Jerusalem someday and demand that the world worship him like God.

“(3) Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; (4) Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.” (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4)

Trump is a very prideful man. But, does anyone seriously think that he is so arrogant that he would demand the world to worship him and order the deaths of anyone who refuses to worship him?

Trump sometimes will ridicule a vocal critic of his. However, he hasn’t used his presidential powers to order the execution of his critics.

  • If you watch Trump’s rallies since he’s become president, you will notice that he will sometimes call for the ejection of vocal opponents. Most of the time, Trump will tell the officials ejecting his opponents to not harm them.

It takes a different level of megalomania to demand the deaths of your critics.

A Different Level of Charisma

Trump is a skilled speaker, but he is not close to being as charismatic as the Antichrist will be. As I’ve stated previously, Antichrist will be even more charismatic than Adolf Hitler, a man who hypnotized an entire nation with his demonic charisma.

I’ve watched footage of Hitler speak and I’ve watched Trump speak many times. The comparison is not even close. Trump does not have the charisma that Hitler had and the charisma that Antichrist will have.

The Ultimate Globalist

Antichrist will seek to dominate the world in the fields of economics, politics, and religion. In this sense, the Antichrist will be the ultimate globalist.

Trump, on the other hand, opposes globalism. In fact, Trump said in a key foreign policy speech::

“No country has ever prospered that failed to put its own interests first. Both our friends and our enemies put their countries above ours and we, while being fair to them, must start doing the same.

We will no longer surrender this country, or its people, to the false song of globalism.

The nation-state remains the true foundation for happiness and harmony. I am skeptical of international unions that tie us up and bring America down, and will never enter-and under my administration-we will never enter America into any agreement that reduces our ability to control our own affairs.”1

Trump believes in a self-described “American First” foreign policy. As a result, he’s unlikely to support the efforts to create a one-world government at the expense of the U.S.’s sovereignty.

In contrast, Antichrist is someone who would embrace the efforts to unite the world in fields like politics and economics.

The Ability to Defeat His Strongest Opponents

Daniel 11 indicates that the Antichrist will attack the strongest opponents and win:

“(38) But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things. (39) Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain.” (Daniel 11:38-39)

Although the context of Daniel 11:38-39 is the Antichrist’s ability to defeat his foes militarily, the passage indicates that the Antichrist will defeat the strongest of opponents.

In contrast, Trump is not an unstoppable force at the time of this writing. Trump is struggling to get his legislative agenda passed in the U.S. Congress. How is Trump going to rule the world when he cannot even get Congress to agree to give him the money to pay for the wall he’s promised?

Trump Recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s Capital

Trump startled many across the world when he moved the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem and recognized the city as Israel’s capital. Please realize that the move is not the confirmation of the “covenant with many” of Daniel 9:27. It’s not the event that will trigger the tribulation.

Trump’s move is really the farthest thing from the confirmation of the covenant with many. Many criticized the move as unnecessary, unilateral, and even harmful to the peace process. The covenant with many will have many sides agree to a deal. Trump’s move lacked the support of many of the countries involved in the future covenant with many.

It will be tough for Trump to broker a Mideast peace deal in the geopolitical environment he’s created. I believe Trump’s move greatly increases the likelihood that a non-U.S. president brokers a Mideast peace deal in the future (and thereby increases the likelihood that the Antichrist will be a non-U.S. president).

Conclusion

In sum, I strongly disagree with the idea that Donald Trump is the Antichrist of the end times. Whether or not you like Trump, please understand that Antichrist is on a completely different level.

Having just attended a two day prophecy conference where I heard the information given by Gary Kah, a man who worked in the government as a foreign trade specialist and left it to start a ministry to expose all that he had learned behind the scenes, it makes no sense that anyone can say that Donald Trump is the antichrist. The powers that oppose him are trying desperately to get rid of him because he stands in the way of their global NWO agenda to bring in the antichrist government. He is a nationalist. He is improving the economy. He… Read more »

It is a strange deception that pits the man against the entire agenda that would bring in the very situation that is needed to make him the antichrist. Obama and that lot are the New World Order. They are trying to take Trump down because he is anti-New World Order by being a nationalist and a capitalist. Neither of those things fit with the plans to bring in the antichrist. They are desperately trying to destroy this country economically and turn us into a socialist state for the antichrist. So exactly why is there a shadow government that undermines him… Read more »

Donald Trump is a man of his word. He’s making the USA economically stronger day by day, and nationally safer. Getting the wall built will be a majorly victory for the USA!!!!!!!!!!!!! The USA had suffered a long, long, time through the disastrous Clinton, Bush Jr. and worst of all Obama administration, that took America into a whirling vortex of desent. President Trump is the first president in my lifetime who is fulfilling his campaign promises. All of the damn, irrational, opposition from the left is disgraceful and clearly demonstrates the lack of decorm that mires politics, the media, and… Read more »

Hello The Last Jedi. The four horsemen of the Apocalypse are described in Revelation chapter 6, verses 1-8. The four horsemen are symbolic descriptions of different events which will take place in the end times. The first horseman, which is in question here, of the Apocalypse is mentioned in Revelation 6:2: “I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a bow, and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest.” This first horseman likely refers to the Antichrist, who will be given authority over the world and will… Read more »

Donald J. Trump = Anti-Christ. He is the false Christ that Evilgelicals such as yourself blindly support and equivocate for 24-7. He has admitted to sexually assaulting women yet nowhere do you mention this.

Melania Trump = Whore of Babylon. Consider her former “occupations.” Do the math, you little mathematician.

David committed adultry with Bathsheba and had her husband killed. David was loved and used by the MOST HIGH. The whore of Babylon is the Vatican, if you knew the scriptures coupled with history you would know these things.

Where in Revelation 6 does the Bible elude to anything about the rider on the white horse being the antichrist or that he is a negative figure. White has never represented bad in the Bible. It’s doesn’t say he had two horns like a lamb but speaks as a dragon as it does when describing the Anti-Christ in latter chapters. It’s is simply a white horse with a rider whom is actually released by Christ. In latter chapters that anti-christ is empowered by the dragon or Satan. It doesn’t give any such description in this chapter. Some believe it to… Read more »

Perhaps calling The Donald the antichrist is going a step too far, or maybe just half a step. I don’t believe that the antichrist would show himself all at once as Revelation suggests, but rather a step by step program that seduces the weak minded and easily lead first, as Trump has done, while courting the conspiracy theorists and the educated fundamental Christians who teeter on the brink of the presidential abyss. But if not the antichrist then certainly a precursor. The antichrist would need to blend in a bit while making his presence known by his charisma, charm and… Read more »

So… Where to begin? Ok, first don’t take anything I say in this post at face value. Please take some time and research for yourselves. Pray on it if you’re inclined to do so. Recent prophecies come to fruition: the red heifer was born. The snake came out of the Western wall. Jerusalem was named Israel’s capitol. 70th anniversary of the Jews going home. The Euphrates river dried up. The sacrifices on the alter of the 3rd Temple. All verifiable facts and all biblical prophecy.. Commonalities between pres. Trump and the Antichrist. Lineage: scripture says the Antichrist is Assyrian, but… Read more »

A small grammatical correction. my phone auto corrected on me. Mortal wound, not more would, lol. As for the transfer bet thing, I only used it as an example of what might be considered a “biblical blasphemy”. Also, he once publicly stated that he doesn’t see repentance as “necessary”…. Just more food for thought

Hello Wayne, my name is John Dixon, I live north of Indy. This position you’ve taken, and demonstrated is so very true, well explained and in my perspective removes him from all the criteria to be an antichrist. He loves American, and has seen the world over, was a Playboy like I was before salvation, and merely wants to pour his time into restoring this nation. Is he rough around the edges, yes, but so are most, they just hide it well. He is gracious, caring, yet will pull out the baseball bat on anybody who’s abusive where ever. Thank… Read more »

Trump at the very least is the little horn and I can all but prove it. He is also the King of Babylon, which New York. New York use to be our capital. I have also made a ridiculous amount of connections to Egypt with him being some kind of Osiris/Horus/Set character in the vein of Ramses II. Things that when looked at together, are beyond explanation. He is either the direct precursor to the Antichrist, here to create chaos so the real Antichrist can create order, or he is THE guy His mother’s name was Mary, his father’s middle… Read more »

“He will make war with the saints”… the Spirit of the AntiChrist is rising (today ppl were killed at a synagogue in Pitt. and few days ppl where killed after shooter couldn’t get in a church in KY at a Kroger…. The Antichrist spirit is in Donald Trump – Trump doesn’t have the spirit of Christ. You will know those who are of Christ by the fruit that they bear..Galatians 5:22-23 (NIV) But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Trump is a… Read more »

Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.” (Dan 11:37) I think you are misinterpreting this wrong. I have swyers syndrome and as such i have a unique outlook on things. The desire of women does not have to mean sex in fact the desire of most women is not sex but respect and equality. The ability to not have to be forced into doing things. Trump does not regard God in fact he uses Christians and has said so on a couple… Read more »

Join the discussion…Daniel 11:37 isn’t about the sexual desires of the antichrist it’s about all the different gods the antichrist doesn’t regard. If you read Daniel 11:36 through Daniel 11:38 it helps you understand. The god desired by women of iniquity in the time era Daniel was writing about is Tammuz (Ezekiel 8:14). In all actuality, Daniel 11 describes Donald Trump to a “T”,(pun intended). Trump is the antichrist without any doubt. The first seal is already opened and the second seal will be opened soon. Once a quick WWIII is over, Trump will confirm the covenant with many which… Read more »

As much as I support Trump in being the president I will never bow and worship him. IMHO Hussain Obama fit the picture of the antichrist better than what Trump does. Arrogant, charismatic and globalist and will do everything (and still do) to shove his agenda down people’s throats.

Arrogant and Charismatic is not the only markers of the antichrist spirit. the antichrist spirit is the opposite of the fruit of Spirit of God. Also, you don’t bow down…no. but you follow – and support him,,,, isn’t this the same. many who attend the rallies worship him by following him blindly and defending him and excusing him. yet he has never ask God for forgiveness. This is a core principle of faith when following Christ. Open you eyes and look for the fruit of the spirit! Trump bears no good fruit or perhaps you should ask yourself Does Trump… Read more »
