ANTICHRIST CANDIDATE: CHAPTER 1
**This series is only meant to allow for speculation about who might be the prophesied Antichrist, as spoken of in the Bible. No one knows who the Antichrist really is at this point, but because I find the subject to be particularly interesting, I would like to share my research with those who would like to read.**
Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666. (Revelation 13:18 NKJV)
"Oh Assyrian, the rod of my anger, and the staff in their hand is mine indignation."
He shall enter peaceably, even into the richest places of the province; and he shall do what his fathers have not done, nor his forefathers: he shall disperse among them the plunder, spoil, and riches; and he shall devise his plans against the strongholds, but only for a time.

In a 2017 interview with the Express, Macron said,
"I went alone to the church...This was the beginning of a mystical period, which lasted several years, after which, I distanced myself from the religion."
"Catholicism seems to have attained a kind of life after death..."
Sociologist Emmanuel Todd, 2017
Jesus was 12 years old when he was found preaching and teaching at the Temple.
41 His parents went to Jerusalem every year at the Feast of the Passover. 42 And when He was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem according to the custom of the feast. 43 When they had finished the days, as they returned, the Boy Jesus lingered behind in Jerusalem. And [l]Joseph and His mother did not know it; 44 but supposing Him to have been in the company, they went a day’s journey, and sought Him among their relatives and acquaintances. 45 So when they did not find Him, they returned to Jerusalem, seeking Him. 46 Now so it was that after three days they found Him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the teachers, both listening to them and asking them questions. 47 And all who heard Him were astonished at His understanding and answers. 48 So when they saw Him, they were amazed; and His mother said to Him, “Son, why have You done this to us? Look, Your father and I have sought You anxiously.”
49 And He said to them, “Why did you seek Me? Did you not know that I must be about My Father’s business?” 50 But they did not understand the statement which He spoke to them.
RISE TO POWER FROM OBSCURITY
"France's youngest ever President"
The Bible explains that the Antichrist will rise from obscurity:
But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times.
8 I was considering the horns, and there was another horn, a little one, coming up among them, before whom three of the first horns were plucked out by the roots. And there, in this horn, were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking pompous words.
9 And out of one of them came a little horn which grew exceedingly great toward the south, toward the east, and toward the Glorious Land.
Emmanuel Macron embodies a rise to power from obscurity.
Macron also won the French Presidential Election of 2017 with a 66.06% margin (3 out of every 4 votes) to become the youngest French President.
"Emmanuel Macron's Remarkable Rise from Obscurity" The Economist (4/29/2017)
"Macron has come from obscurity in less than 1 year to be one of the most recognizable faces..."
Times UK, (12/2017)
WHAT'S IN A NAME?...
The Bible says the number 666 will be related to the end-times Antichrist and is possible to be computed. (Revelation 13:18).
According to Dr. E.W. Bullinger, "when the name of the Antichrist is known its gematria will doubtless be found to be the number 666".
There are 36 (6 x 6) total characters in Macron's name (32 letters, 1 dash, 3 spaces). If you give each character a value of its position and calculate the sum, you get 666 (1+2+3+...+36 = 666).
Furthermore, Macron won the French presidency by 66.06% of the vote and assumed office on May 14, 2017 (Israel’s 69th anniversary as a reborn nation, what a coincidence!). (source)
"18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666."
Macron is married to Brigitte, his former high school French, Latin, and Literature teacher...
She is 24 years older than him.
At the time when the two met, Macron was 15 and Trogneux was a 39-year-old married mother of three children--one of her children was twice the age of Macron and another was Macron's classmate... (source)
The new First Lady of France confirmed to Paris Match magazine last year that a determinedly romantic Macron had vowed to marry her when he was just 17 years old, promising to come back and find her after he was sent to the capital.
“You cannot get rid of me. I will come back and marry you,” he is quoted as having said.
"Their relationship turned romantic when Mr. Macron, then in 11th grade, persuaded her to write a play with him. “Writing brought us together every Friday and it unleashed an incredible closeness,” she told Paris Match."
“little by little, he vanquished my resistance,” she said.
Ms. Trogneux eventually divorced her husband and took a teaching job in Paris. “I told myself: I’m going to miss out on my life if I don’t do this.” (source)
"In September 1993, Emmanuel was in premiere. He will be 16 years old. The previous year, he joined high school, a theater workshop led by a blonde and lively French teacher. Brigitte Auziere is different. She is approaching forty, three children, a husband who is a banker in an old establishment in Amiens, a family that we talk about with respect between Henriville and Le Touquet: she was born Trogneux, downtown chocolate makers, macaroon makers, masters at playing of the local bourgeoisie. Jean-Claude, Brigitte's brother, organizes a bicycle rally every year between Le Touquet and Amiens, symbol of the twinning of elegant classes. Brigitte goes beyond her origins. It vibrates and thrills for literature. From her home, rue Saint-Simon, to the Macron's house, rue Gaulthier-de-Rumilly, there are about 200 meters. Emmanuel crosses them that year. He takes command of those around him and of his life." (source)
MACRON'S SEXUALITY QUESTIONED
In 2017, Vanity Fair published a news article entitled, "The childhood secrets of Emmanuel Macron and Najat Vallaud-Belkacem" addressing rumors concerning the authenticity of Macron's marriage and sexuality.
"The rumor arrived in Amiens: eminent socialists were sneering in Paris, whispering that their son was a shameful homosexual . “ This is the game,” I told him. Emmanuel threatens them; they want to weaken it, irritate it. You cannot imagine the mediocrity of this world.""
"The one requirement is that a politician’s love life should be sincere, especially if it’s part of his public persona. Mr. Macron went on TV in November to deny a persistent rumor that he’s secretly gay and living a “double life.” At issue isn’t his sexuality; it’s his authenticity. The implication is that if his love story isn’t real, his plans for the country lack substance, too.
For the future of France, let’s hope it is."
An article in the Daily Mail reports “The current favourite to become the next president of France has been forced to deny rumours that he is enjoying an extra-marital gay affair with a high-profile media chief.”
The Daily Mail continues “The Russian state news agency Sputnik has made allegations that Mr Macron is backed by a homosexual lobby.”
“They quoted French MP Nicolas Dhuicq, of the conservative Republican Party, saying: ‘Concerning his private life, it is becoming known….He is supported by a rich, gay lobby.’”
SYMBOLISM SURROUNDING MACRON
Macron was born December 21, 1977.
After the children of Israel left Egyptian bondage they had 21 major rebellious events as their traveled and wandered the wilderness.
"Soon after his appointment, a mysterious movement appeared called ‘Les Jeunes avec Macron’ (‘Young people for Macron’). This was launched as a ‘spontaneous’ internet site, but quickly grew into a well-organised group numbering several thousand activists whose average age was said to be 33."
"He also addressed his supporters and the media with his head aligned with the top of the pyramid, which was lit, and with his arms repeatedly raised in a V shape, a clear nod to the square, compass and all-seeing eye of the Masonic tradition. Just to show us, little people, who has always been in charge of choosing the French President."
HE CAUSETH ALL...
"It forges a connection to the world for having always met with approval. Note: the approval and recognition of older people. Let us add: to appreciate, basically, only this validation, coming from human beings who have lived more than him. " Emmanuel has always been an adult, " say his parents. He will choose, for a long time, only elders, from whom he will be able to enrich himself. His grandmother. His teachers. Brigitte soon. Later, in Paris, the philosopher Paul Ricoeur, of whom he was to be the assistant. The businessman Henry Hermand , who has just died, in his nineties, in November 2016: his wedding witness. It starts early. Young man - I bet without risk - his contemporaries did not fascinate him. Did they feel it? "Emmanuel knows how to give you the impression that you are important, ”says Jean-Michel. “ Emmanuel is an actor,” specifies Marc Defernand. He also played with us. When he was giving a brilliant presentation, he was playing it!""
