What I’m sharing is something I absolutely did not want to write, but after much prayer, resistance on my part, and tears, I feel led to release this word from the Lord. Please take what you read before Him in prayer for confirmation.
First, I’d like to acknowledge the debate going on over TV and the internet about Obama being the supposed Antichrist. To date, I’ve stayed out of the conversation because I hadn’t received anything from the Lord about this. Knowing it was prophesied there would be many who would come in the spirit of antichrist, I felt Obama was absolutely of that spirit. But THE antichrist? I wasn’t sure.
Recently, a servant of the Lord recommended that one should go before the Lord and just ask Him! So about a week ago I began asking, “Lord, is Obama the antichrist?” I’ve asked this question every day since, and now believe I’ve received the answer.
On May 4th, 2016, while getting ready for work, I was listening to a radio broadcast about Rafael Cruz, the father of Senator Ted Cruz, being in a photograph taken from a 1963 video where he’s standing next to Lee Harvey Oswald passing out pro-Castro pamphlets. The photo was taken a few months before Kennedy’s assassination. I had just heard a few minutes earlier that Ted Cruz had suspended his campaign. Please know, I have nothing against Ted Cruz and I only mention this because this was the catalyst that triggered the train of thoughts that followed.
A feeling of intense sadness came over me as I realized how little we really know about our politicians, or the behind-the-curtain activities going on in the governments of this world. I began thinking about all the deception, how so many wars have been fought throughout history; nations toppled, leaders replaced, often with fabricated reasons given to the common folk as to why. Usually, our government has claimed their actions were to “liberate the people.” Thoughts of recent wars raced through my mind as I left the room and began walking towards the kitchen.
By the time I sat down at the bar, the “Arab Spring” was playing like a video in my head. One by one, I saw as the leaders of various nations being removed from power and others put in their place.
Suddenly, I saw a vision. It was like a rewind button was pushed and I saw the face of Saddam Hussein of Iraq in front of me. Next, the face of George W. Bush grinning from ear to ear appeared before me. It was the scene from when he’d landed aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln, giving his triumphant war speech, with a banner displayed behind him which read, “Mission Accomplished.”
Just as I saw the “Mission Accomplished” banner, the Lord said, “This was their plan from the beginning!”
I said, “Lord, what was whose plan from the beginning?”
I saw Saddam Hussein hanging from a noose in front of me. Then the scene changed to the profile of a man walking away from me towards an airplane. Just before he got to the plane, he turned around to look back. It was Barack Obama. He briefly looked about, as one does when they’re moving to another home, that last goodbye glance. He had a hint of a smile, which then turned into a sneer as he turned around and headed up the steps to the plane.
As I was taking in what I saw, the Lord said, “They will receive him with open arms, as he will be known as the one who took down the Great Satan.” End of Vision.
It was immediately relayed to me in the spirit that as soon as Obama’s mission in the United States is complete, he will leave the United States, and take up residency in Iraq. All the plans are already in place.
As the Lord said, “This was their plan from the beginning.” He will be received with open arms and celebrated as “the one who took down the Great Satan.” If you’ve followed the rhetoric from the Islamic nations, you already know this to be the term they use for the United States.
Feeling quite shaken by this time, I asked the Lord, “Why Iraq?” I was then led to look up the history of Iraq. Please know, I’m not a history scholar and claim no expertise in any of this. As I began to read through articles on the internet, I could hardly contain myself. The following are bits and pieces of what I’ve found in the last few days of searching as time allowed:
Iraq is centered in what was called Lower Mesopotamia, part of the Fertile Crescent, and is considered the cradle of civilization. The early kingdoms of the earth ruled over the area: Babylon, Assyria, Persia, and Greece are some of the empires that ruled until the end of the 3rd century, when it was once again under Persian control. Fast forward to the 7th century, when the Islamic religion was started and Islamic conquests brought in the Rashidun Caliphate.
Baghdad became the center of the “Islamic Golden Age” under the Abbasid Caliphate in the 9th century. Iraq then went in and out from under the rule of various kingdoms until it was absorbed into the Ottoman Empire in the 16th century. World War I ended the Ottoman rule, as Iraq came under the administration of the British Empire. Eventually, a republic was established in 1958 following a coup d’etat.
Saddam Hussein controlled Iraq from 1979 until 2003, when he was deposed by the U.S-led invasion. He believed Iraq was the modern day Babylon, and was totally obsessed with restoring and rebuilding Babylon. He also believed he was the Son of King Nebuchadnezzar and wanted the kingdom restored to its former glory. Having distaste for the Word of God, he wanted to prove to Christians that Babylon had not been destroyed – and would in fact rise again.
Based on what the Lord showed me, it appears Saddam Hussein wasn’t the only one with aspirations of rebuilding Babylon.
For lack of space, I won’t go into all the elaborate structures the U.S. has built, and is planning to build, in Iraq. From what I’ve found in just a couple of days, about half of the budget for military bases outside the United States is currently being poured into Iraq. That’s pretty big when you consider we have bases all over the world. In July 2015, it was reported that several more U.S. bases are planned. The United States has withdrawn troops down to a skeleton crew, so why the vast build up? What’s behind the curtain here? I encourage everyone to check into this after much prayer.
Why, Lord, Why?
I’d only asked the Lord a simple question: Is Obama the antichrist? But our God is true to His Word and able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think (Eph 3:30). I was stunned by this vision and not sure why the Lord had given it to me – one who has no background or expertise in history or prophecy. After asking Him, “Why me Lord? I feel so inadequate to write about these things,” I believe He’s shown me it’s because most have preconceived notions and doctrines they will not let go of, so would not be able to receive.
Many believe the antichrist will eventually move to the future temple in Jerusalem, while others believe something altogether different. I wasn’t shown that far ahead, only his next move.
The Lord doesn’t want His Church – the very Body of Christ to be blindsided. I pray we let go of our notions, doctrines, and traditions of men. Let’s get into the Word of God ourselves, praying fervently for the guidance and inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
Jesus promised us that the Holy Spirit would remind us of His Word, lead us into all truth, and show us things to come (John 14:23; 16:12-15). I believe the Lord is showing us what’s coming very soon. Satan has it hidden behind the curtain, but there is nothing hidden that will not be revealed. And the Word tells us the antichrist would be revealed at the proper time (2 Thessalonians 2:6).
Saints, the Lord wants to reveal all things to us so we’ll not be caught unaware. All we have to do is ask!

Diana Pulliam has been a Christian since the age of 22, but it wasn’t until 2008, while going through an especially trying time, that she asked God what He intended for her life. She told Him she wanted her life to give Him glory, but didn’t see how it was making any difference at all for His kingdom. She asked Him to not hold anything back, she wanted everything He intended for her, and was willing to do whatever He told her to do.
Two weeks later, during her quiet time with the Lord, she heard the Holy Spirit say, “Clean your house and write.” The last few years, He has given her dreams and visions about the times in which we live. In 2011, she started the blog The Mighty Hand of God as a place to write whatever the Lord inspires.
