Recently interviewed by Piers Morgan, Barbara Walters said, “We thought he [Barak Obama] was going to be—I shouldn't say this at Christmastime—but the next messiah.” She went on to say she still hopes he will at least be “messiah-like” in his next 3 years.
Given the plethora of murky international crises that await the world in 2014, there is sure to be great desire for “a man with a plan”—someone ‘messiah-like.’ Earthlings have always coveted ‘messiah-like’ qualities in their leaders. Napoleon Bonaparte, Abraham Lincoln, Winston Churchill, even Adolf Hitler and Mao Tse-tung were messiah-like—each one “a man with plan.” Even today, the world's religions—Jews, Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus—await their messiah to save the world.
Why is this important to us? Because before Christ returns, there will be a false messiah (the Antichrist). And before that, the rapture. Therefore, one of the signs to watch for is the rising of an international leader who will be ‘messiah-like’—“a man with a plan.”
