Ok, first things first… the information I’m sharing here is strictly speculative; and my intentions are to ask the question “Is Donald Trump the Antichrist?” Could we be seeing the rise of the charismatic figure spoken of through biblical scripture? I’m not saying that he is as Obama certainly makes a very strong case as well (as do others), but at the same time we simply cannot rule him out, brushoff and ignore the Donald’s speech and rhetoric. Please provide your take on this topic in the comment sections (blog and Facebook) below. (NOTE: If you cannot see the FB comments below then try a different browser.)
So before we dive into my perspective (opinion) on this topic, I want to take a moment and state that I first became aware Biblical Eschatology in 1987; and just to be clear… that doesn’t make me right, however; I am a long-time, studied student.
As a student of Eschatology, my position or perspective is that of the “Pre-Tribulation” or “Pre-Millennial” position of Eschatology (video explanation in suggested playlist in the concluding paragraph below). Also follow on Facebook Page “Pre-Trib Rapture Fan?”!
Regardless of your perspective, I would ask that you just take in the information and see if it resonates with you? If it rubs your spirit the wrong way or if there’s nothing to it, then it will fade out. But if it resonates… we’ll find out what happens together as the 2016 presidential campaign progresses… stay tuned!
(UPDATE AUG 18, 2016) My personal opinion is that there will not be an election… and Obama will stay in power. I believe the Rapture of the church is imminent!! The church is about to be judged! See My FB Post: https://www.facebook.com/kingdomengineers/posts/1213218972074180 And WATCH ALL 3 VIDEOS ASAP!!! Then scroll down the wall and view the video titled “The Capitol Secrets of Washing DC”. As a US Marine, Capitol Secrets pissed me off in that I’ve been duped about this country! Yes it is good, but it’s about to become VERY EVIL! And I even knew a little something about the Mason’s.
I also believe that the 7th Day Adventists do have one Beast correct in that it is the POPE. However, they are missing the boat on the Rapture! I believe that Trump is a distraction and that most everyone is missing the story in the stars RIGHT NOW!!! Jesus told us to LOOK UP… ARE YOU??? I will be posting a video that I’m working on soon. I believe that the Pope and Obama will be the two Beasts of Revelation. But keep reading below too just in case AFTER YOU WATCH THE VIDEOS ON MY FB PAGE! THIS IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN THINKING ABOUT DT RIGHT NOW! PLEASE LISTEN TO THIS WARNING!
What does the Bible say?
Fortunately, thank God… that the Bible does provide us a pretty descriptive picture of this man’s character and schemes! The essential location that we learn this from is the Book of Daniel, Chapter 8 in that people will already know him, like him, trust him, and therefore will follow him.
Now I strongly encourage you to first take 10 minutes and listen to the essential descriptive verses of an audio file displayed below, which in my opinion is one of the best descriptions/interpretations that we have of the “Antichrist” (AC) from the Bible, straight from Daniel 8:23-25 (taught by Paul Beck).
Keep in mind that Dan 8 is believed by some to be a “dual prophecy” in that it was partially fulfilled in the days of Antiochus Epiphanes, and yet still has a future fulfillment as well based of some of the clues in the text. I believe that it has been partially fulfilled!
So grab your Bible, and in some cases blow off the dust… (time is short) and lets get a quick nugget straight from the Book of Daniel, Ch 8:23-25, where the Bible totally introduces us to his character and his schemes.
Listen to the interpretation verse by verse via streaming audio now: Antichrist Profile – Daniel Chapter 8:23-25 – Think about Donald Trump as you listen! Also, this audio was not created with Donald Trump in mind. I spoke with Paul Beck, it’s creator, and he has never even considered The Donald until now. Paul leans towards an Islamic Antichrist.

Antichrist Profile – Donald Trump?
23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.
24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.
25 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.
Watch Later: Paul Beck’s full Profile of the Antichrist | Daniel 8 here!
So what did you think of that character profile description/interpretation in the audio file?
If you didn’t listen to it yet then you are doing yourself a huge disservice… Listen to it first!
If you did listen… Do you see what I see in how Dan 8:23-25 describes a person like Donald Trump, a current presidential candidate for the most powerful nation on earth?
Politicians have driven America and the global economy right into the ground and are completely setting the stage for someone to come in and save the day!
Attributes of the Final “World Ruler” – “World Leader” – “Great Chief”
- Be an organizational genius without a conscience, ruthless with no compassion
- Most ingenious ways of solving problems of opposition (great negotiator)
- Every victory he encounters he increases in strength! (each personal attack vs subsequent poll #s)
- Deceitful, Treason, all will prosper in his hands (form of wisdom); (under his Presidency)
- Fantastic Politician, (he’ll get there)
- A Master Negotiator – He also wrote the Best Seller “The Art of the Deal”
- Arrogant, Prideful,
- By peace will destroy many!
Also, Daniel tells us in 11:36:
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.
And again in Daniel 11:37, next verse:
37 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.
So What Got Me Thinking – Is Donald Trump the Antichrist?
Shortly after his candidate announcement speech in June 2015, I was listening to Donald Trump (DT) in an interview with Anderson Cooper and he said he was “going to take the oil” to stop ISIS.
That was an interesting statement in which it reminded me of a teaching several years ago while listening to Perry Stone talk about Daniel 11:24; where the King of the North, presumably the Antichrist, will come in peaceably and seek to take over the “fattest places of the province”… In other words, he would “take the oil” in the region. Keep in mind that Dan 11 can also be a dual fulfillment prophecy as mentioned above.
24 He shall enter peaceably even upon the fattest places of the province; and he shall do that which his fathers have not done, nor his fathers' fathers; he shall scatter among them the prey, and spoil, and riches: yea, and he shall forecast his devices against the strong holds, even for a time.
The word “fattest places” is Strong’s H49424 meaning “fatness, fat piece, fertile spot or place, richly prepared food” where “fertile spot or place” is where the oil is located in the area (Middle East) or it could be America herself, as we are the richest county in the world and have just about as much oil reserves, if not more than the middle east. Now whether that is a correct interpretation of verse 24 or not I’m not sure… Time will tell! (Sorry for the commercial before the video.)
Therefore, when Trump made that statement with forceful authority, that was the first red flag that reminded me of the Antichrist in scripture.
About a two-three weeks later, 1st of August 2015, the next nugget on this path is the building of a “wall” as mentioned in the Illegal Immigration issue. Not only a wall… but a big massive wall with “gates”. You ask, where is that in scripture?
To illustrate this point, here is an interview with Trump on O’Reilly describing the wall again as well as his position on the 14th Amendment and the term “anchor babies”…
Video Length 7:23
‘We’ll call it the Great Wall of Trump!’: The Donald proclaims he’ll name US-Mexico border barrier after himself: Check out this article in your spare time! It’s not too far fetched to think that “Illegal” Immigration could spearhead the need to implement the infamous “Mark of the Beast”?
He’s certainly determined to “Make America Great Again” by starting with a wall… perhaps a wall that is described in Jer 50-51? What do you think? Keep reading…
Now Jer 50-51 is believed by many theologians to be the “Mystery Babylon” of Rev 17-18. Jer 50-51 confirms what will possibly happen to the harlot in Rev 17-18 (Bible Hermeneutics ~ the study of Biblical Interpretation). The following four verses are the only mention of any walls surrounding “Mystery Babylon” throughout all four chapters.
Jer 51:58 specifically mentions walls and gates together being destroyed. Walls plural… If Trump turns out to be the AC… Do you think Trump would stop at just one wall?
But you can’t just take my word for it… Read those four chapters again (Jer 50-51 and Rev 17-18) with Donald Trump in mind knowing his character and policy plans that you’ve heard in his campaign so far. Ask the Holy Spirit for discernment as you read. Then you may want to check out Donald Trump’s Immigration Plan that was recently published. Again, I’m not claiming that he is the AC… I’m still just trying to see if these puzzle pieces are going to all fit together?
Another point that I want to make, And I’ll have to find the video, Is where he talks about making America so rich and having many victories that you will actually get tired of it. To me that falls in line with America morphing into Mystery Babylon and how the whole world trades with her in Revelation 17 and 18. What do you think?
Now this is certainly interesting…
A 1990 Heavy Metal Magazine predicts Donald Trump as President in this comic named “The Wall”!
So Who Is Donald Trump?
Seems like a silly question giving his celebrity, but lets dive in. For a plethora of info on Donald simply read his Wikipedia profile Donald Trump.
As for this post, I’m going to display some highlights that I find interesting.
So I then performed a name search on the name “Donald”, and can you believe this?
I realize that names can mean different things, etc… but what are the odds here? Seriously?
Now, as we start to learn a little bit about Donald Trump here, make note just how wide his reach is across the world already with the Trump Empire! I like to use the expression that he has his tentacles all throughout the world.
My point being, sorry Donald… but what better person would Satan use than someone of his experience, power, presence, arrogance, ego, worldly relationships (both business and personal) and extreme knowledge of how the world works via trade and negotiations. A person who knows the system better than anybody? And claims it! Here is a snippet from his Wikipedia profile:
Trump Branding and Licensing
Beyond his traditional ventures in the real estate, hospitality, and entertainment industries, Trump has established the Trump name and brand in other industries and products.
Trump has succeeded in marketing the Trump name on a large number of products, including Trump Financial (a mortgage firm), Trump Sales and Leasing (residential sales), Trump Restaurants (located in Trump Tower and consisting of Trump Buffet, Trump Catering, Trump Ice Cream Parlor, and Trump Bar), GoTrump (an online travel website), Donald J. Trump Signature Collection (a line of menswear, men's accessories, and watches), Donald Trump The Fragrance (2004), Trump magazine, Trump Golf, Trump Chocolate, Trump home (home furnishings), Trump Productions (a television production company), Trump Institute, Trump The Game (1989 board game), Donald Trump's Real Estate Tycoon (a business simulation game), Trump Books, Trump Model Management, Trump Shuttle, Trump Ice, Trump Mortgage, Trump Vodka, and Trump Steaks. In addition, Trump reportedly receives $1.5 million for each one-hour presentation he does for The Learning Annex. ~ From Wikipedia
Now with all of that said… You’re going to love this… a documentary about Trump in the 1980s and 90s appeared online on August 5, 2015, called What’s the Deal? Initially you can see the trailer, then watch the entire documentary. A great insight into his character! It’s an hour long so you may want to come back to it?
Donald Trump’s Parents… and Family Lineage
I still need to do some more research on the origins of the Antichrist, yet to date, I’ve seen some really good theories on where the Antichrist comes from, and whether he will be Assyrian, Jewish or Muslim? Some say he’ll come out of the European Union, while others believe he’ll rise up in the Islamic world. Keep your eye on President Erdogan of Turkey too!
The Bible states at least on three different occasions that he may be Assyrian:
Isa 10:24: Therefore thus saith the Lord God of hosts, O my people that dwellest in Zion, be not afraid of the Assyrian: he shall smite thee with a rod, and shall lift up his staff against thee, after the manner of Egypt
Isa 30:31:For through the voice of the Lord shall the Assyrian be beaten down, which smote with a rod.
Mic 5:5: And this man shall be the peace, when the Assyrian shall come into our land: and when he shall tread in our palaces, then shall we raise against him seven shepherds, and eight principal men.
Whether he is Assyrian or not, I believe he’ll rise up to appeal to Christians and Jews first, then he’ll embrace Islam once the “abomination that causes desolation” occurs (Dan 12:11, Matt 24:15) at “Mid-Trib”. Which by the way, looks like it will be next year!
UPDATE – AUG 19, 2016: Did you know that the Rev 12 sign is next fall? September 23, 2017? (I have a theory about how the next 12 months will play out as they will/may be the first half of the Tribulation). Stay tuned for my video soon.
Donald Trump’s mother is from Scotland and his father is from Germany. Interesting that both Germany and Scotland are both apart of the European Union!
Donald's father, Fred Trump, who had married in 1936 to Trump's mother who was a Scottish immigrant, born on the Isle of Lewis, off the west coast of Scotland. Trump's paternal grandparents were German immigrants; Trump's grandfather, Friedrich Drumpf, was a successful Klondike Gold Rush restaurateur who anglicized the family name. In his 1987 book, The Art of the Deal, Donald Trump incorrectly claimed that Friedrich Drumpf was of Swedish origin, an assertion previously made by Fred Trump for many years. ~ Source - Wikipedia
In my experience however, the closest depiction of where the AC comes from is taught by Joe VanKoevering (referenced below in Other AC Predictions) and unfortunately his interpretation doesn’t include Germany or Scottland. But NO-ONE has a handle on the absolute truth on this topic… So keep coming back to this page for updates as I continue to research it.
Donald Trump’s Plan For America
Did you even know he now has a revised edition of his 2011 book called “Time To Get Tough” that details his plans to “Make America Great Again”? He completely reveals all of his solutions, not only for America, but for the world as a master negotiator of deals.
UPDATE: Revised book is called “Crippled America: How To Make America Great Again”.
Don’t be deceived by his presentation, Donald knows the economy, politics, and issues of the world… and knows them all very well! He also seems to have a solution to most of them in his media interviews. He just doesn’t articulate them well! Sticks his foot in his mouth!
As he keeps getting pressed for his solutions he’ll keep revealing what is in his book.
I have both the audio book and hard copy. Although it was written in 2011 for his first presidential run, the info is still relevant today. You can get your copy on Amazon here.
If you haven’t seen this speech in Iowa yet, then I encourage you to sit back and listen. Listen to his words, listen how he leads, listen to how he is proud of getting attention. His Mobile, AL speech was a bit telling as well.
Other Antichrist Predictions…
I also find it interesting that we see other “Antichrist” types in history’s dictators such as Hitler and Stalin coming thru Germany; and yet Trump’s family tree also runs thru Germany on his father’s side, and Scotland via his mother’s family.
Here is a pretty convincing theory and post on my site from 2008 titled “The Coming Biblical Antichrist” = Islam’s Madhi – Messaiah, where Joe VanKoevering describes in his book, through the process of elimination that the AC may come out of the Southern region instead of the Western region of Alexander The Great’s territory that was divided among his 4 generals as depicted in the Book of Daniel.
If you’re interested on other outside information on the “Man of Sin” here is a post I made back in 2011 that sells an ebook that also describes his character and schemes. I of course recommend that you learn what you can regarding Who Is The Antichrist and allow the Holy Spirit to discern truth for you. This ebook plays into Obama being the AC but it’s interesting nevertheless.
Also, Mr. Paul Beck just recommended to me this site which also provides an interesting theory on an Islamic Antichrist.
Another theory and book called “The Antichrist and a Cup of Tea” is pretty convincing that Prince Charles could be the AC mainly because of his Coat of Arms and Royalty status among many groups in the world. But this is a hard book to read.
One of the most compelling arguments for who it will be is by the 7th Day Adventists. But they are completely missing the Rapture boat in my opinion! Nonetheless, there has to be something to the middle ages as Walter Veith describes here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uKcXTYWh2F0
So as you can see there are various opinions about who this person will be and there are countless others that I haven’t mentioned.
When is the Antichrist supposed to be revealed?
Now some people say that the Biblical “Antichrist’ will not be revealed until after the “Rapture”; and I believe that to be true as in what 2nd Thes 2:1-4 describes for us…
2 Thessalonians 2:1-4 King James Version (KJV)
1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
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 worshiped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
Interesting Comments and Headlines to Note…
Now just for a moment lets revisit the second half of the verse in Daniel 11:24 once again…
"he shall scatter among them the prey, and spoil, and riches"...
Another interesting nugget is where Donald specifies his plan for veterans like this in his book: (paraphrasing… I will repay families of fallen soldiers, be very generous and send their children to college, compensating the spouses of fallen vets with $5Mil to the families who have lost a loved one in war, wounded vets would be looked after as well such as $2Mil for each wounded vet plus medical costs paid for).
Can you imagine how people will be lining up to join the military. Listen to his words… the crowd’s response to him… how is this momentum going to fade?
Video Length :56 sec (You’ll have to watch this on YouTube for now)
He goes on right after that by saying in his book that he lives by the Old Warriors/Assassins Creed, “to the victor go the spoils”. Have you heard how great of a military we’ll have if he becomes president? “Nobody’s gonna play games with us.”
You know… the Jewish people are supposed to accept the Antichrist initially before he turns on them at Mid-Trib. Here is an interesting article titled “Trump has strongest Jewish ties of all GOP Candidates”. Here is a snippet…
“I have a Jewish daughter. This wasn’t in the plan, but I’m very glad it happened,” Trump said at the event, held in Manhattan. On Israel, he said, “We love Israel. We will fight for Israel 100 percent, 1,000 percent. It will be there forever.”
I'm simply pointing out above the fact that Donald Trump will not hesitate to execute people. I believe that his outlook on Edward Snowden is about the same as Bergdahls. Also, did you see in a couple of his recent rallies where he suggests to take protesters' coats before throwing them outside in the cold?
In the clip below I’m not promoting the following of CNN’s NewDay on Twitter… I’m simply pointing out Antichrist characteristics in what Peter Beinart says, “Trump has authoritarian tendencies himself”.… just play the video.

The discussion is about comparing Trump to a Putin, Authoritarian style of leadership!
Donald Trump’s Religious Views
(A Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing? OR a Complete Distraction?)
Either DT is a newborn believer or a wolf in sheep’s clothing? In my experience in being “Born Again” at the age of 18 I believe the latter.
Mat 7:18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
Mat 7:19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Mat 7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
Here are the characteristics of a new man in Christ according to scripture:
12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; 13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
Now I don’t know about you, but I believe that Trump is the epitome of being pugnacious! Have you heard him talk about his religious views? Here is Trump on God and Forgiveness, he’s not pulling the wool over our eyes:
Video Length: 3:46 sec
Video of “his favorite verse in the bible”…
Now I understand that some people may be “private” in their religious views; however, in my “Christian” experience the Holy Spirit never holds back and always rejoices in glorifying anything that God does in one’s life and who He is. The fruit of the Spirit never changes!
Scripture clearly tells us in Luke 6:43-45 that:
A Tree Is Known by Its Fruit (NKJV)
43 “For a good tree does not bear bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. 44 For every tree is known by its own fruit. For men do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they gather grapes from a bramble bush. 45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart[g] brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.
In this video, I’m not surprised by the likes of Kenneth Copeland, Jan Crouch, and Paula White; however, I am surprised to see the shocking support by Robert Jeffress who in most cases wonderfully and accurately teaches on Eschatology in my opinion.
Be like “Daniel” as in the Book of Daniel… never compromise your Christian values! This is an excellent article by Matt Walsh for any Christian who is considering voting for DT… even if he doesn’t turn out to be the AC. It is titled “Dear Christians, If You Vote For A Godless Man, You Are Asking For Tyranny”. I don’t know about you, but I never hear DT speak intelligently about the Constitution either… do you? So far I’ve only heard him talk about the 2nd amendment (gun rights) and 14th amendment (regarding anchor babies). Can you identify Donald’s moral compass? To me it seems to be his Ego (Edging God Out)!
Stay tuned for more info here….
I believe that most “prophecy” teachers in America’s pulpits today are looking for the AC to rise up out of the European Union (EU) or the “Revived Roman Empire”? (NOTE both Germany and Scottland are apart of the EU). I also believe that America could be a form of the “Revived Roman Empire” as we are modeled after Rome! Just look at all of the buildings and art sculptures, etc., in Washington, DC.
I believe it can be said that America is the 7th Kingdom that reigned for a little while as John describes in The Revelation – Ch 17:10-11, and that Trump very well could be the “Little Horn” who is rising up onto the world stage? (Side note: A Trump is a little-horn!) Time will soon tell… keep watching:
10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.
11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
The seven are believed to be all governments, and the 8th is to be one man. I also believe there may not be an election in 2016… in that Dan 11:21 describes how he “comes in peaceably, and seize the kingdom by intrigue”.
21 And in his estate shall stand up a vile person, to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries.
The word “flattery” also means to Beguile, to influence by trickery, flattery, etc.; mislead; delude. Donald seems to have all of the answers, is extremely boastful and proud, and is a Master Negotiator!!
No matter what happens in this election cycle or who becomes our next president, Our father, Lord and Savior gave us these words of warning and the hope in an ‘escape’ or “Rapture” in Luke 21:34-36:
34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.
35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.
36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
One final nugget to chew on… do you find it interesting that we, as Christians are awaiting the trumpet blast, voice of God to initiate the Rapture of the Church; all the while we have a man rising up who’s name is “TRUMP”! Go Figure!
So what are your thoughts? I’d love to hear your feedback and your perspective on anything you find in the media or online that may help to answer the question, Is Donald Trump The Antichrist?
Stay In His Mighty Grip and Keep Looking Up!
Now PLEASE GO watch these videos NOW! Time is SHORTER THAN YOU KNOW!

P.S. I’m simply reaching out to those who may be thinking the same thing, or who wants a better understanding or interpretation as to What Is Happening In The World Today! If the subject of “Eschatology” – the study of Biblical prophecy (27% of the Bible) intrigues you, then I highly recommend that you bring your Bible to the table with a pen and a highlighter, and get started with THIS PLAYLIST NOW!! (produced by D. Paul Beck)
In all of my years of study, I haven’t come across too many “teachers” who have been able to explain the Bible in a simplistic, and easy to learn manner where you can feel confident that he uses the Bible to interpret itself. A pretty amazing teaching style… you’ll see! I encourage you to bookmark this page and keep coming back for page updates.
