Are You Prepared for the Antichrist

There are many Antichrist types in the world today, however, the last dreaded Antichrist sent by Satan and the powers of darkness has not yet been publicly revealed (I John 2:18). We will discuss some of the major characteristics of the Antichrist. More importantly, we will help God’s children to prepare for his coming. We will not encourage them to start pointing fingers at potential candidates. This is very important because if we all did this it would lead to hysteria and a global panic. I am confident that when the last Antichrist arrives on the scene God’s faithful remnant will know. It will not be a matter of public debate or open discourse. On the other hand, God’s faithful remnant will spend their time making last-minute preparations for themselves and their families. Before we begin our discussion let me be very clear about what the Bible says, “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” (II Thessalonians 2:3). There are two very important points: we will be here when the Antichrist arrives, if we are still alive, and secondly, there will be a great falling away from the true faith.

Many will claim the name of Christ on that day but only a few will be known by the risen Lord (Matthew 7:21-23). Many people will be led astray by the Antichrist believing that he is the true Christ or the anointed one. Most of the fallen world will blindly follow the Antichrist as the true savior of humanity. Unlike Jesus Christ who came specifically to the children of Israel, the Antichrist will set his sights on the entire world (Revelation 13:7-8). He will not be an isolationist, but a globalist seeking to control the hearts of all humanity. Although he may very well act like an isolationist to gain support from the country from which he arises, he will have plans to enlist all nations to a peace accord with the nation of Israel in his quest for world domination. The prime target for the Antichrist will be the seduction of Christianity and especially the nation of Israel convincing them that he is the true messiah or the anointed one. In essence, Christianity has been seduced for many years by leading them to trust in the works of mankind instead of trusting in God exclusively. This will allow the seduction of Christianity to be more compelling and effectual when the Antichrist makes his bold proclamations that often seem beyond the pale.

Satan from the beginning has always desired that humanity put their trust in him as opposed to trusting in God exclusively. His first words in the Garden of Eden, spoken through the serpent, were to proclaim that God was a liar by telling humanity that they would not die for their disobedience (Genesis 3:2-5). Well, we know how that worked out for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God allowing humanity to live an increasingly shorter life span on planet earth. Furthermore, Satan has been seducing humanity ever since bringing them to the point of serving his Antichrist as the savior of humanity. The characteristics of the Antichrist are not unlike Satan the father of lies. Perhaps one of his strongest attributes is lying to the masses of humanity by proclaiming his innocence for his many outrageous transgressions against the established laws of civil society. There is not even a hint of guilt or remorse. The population will be seduced into believing that others are falsely accusing him making them appear as the liars in the same way that Satan has attempted to turn the tables on God, accusing Him of being the liar. Truly the Antichrist is the man of lawlessness and the son of perdition or a man of eminent wickedness. His aim is the destruction of others for his own benefit.

The Antichrist’s eminent desire is to garner the worship of humanity. In his pride, he will never stop talking about himself but constantly telling everyone about how intelligent he is having the ability to bring peace to a wayward world. In his pride, he will slander others to elevate himself above all others. In his arrogance and pride, he will proclaim that he has the answers to fix all the world’s problems. This pride and seduction will lead many to praise him openly and unashamedly above all others. The Antichrist will not refuse the praise and adoration from others but will act as though he rightfully deserves it by heaping praises upon himself. Seduction and pride will work hand in hand to energize his public following, whipping them into a frenzy of support. They will even be led to strike back at his enemies, causing civil disobedience, veiled threats, and raising money for his personal needs. Many promises will be made by the Antichrist to garner humanity’s support and their undying allegiance to him as the next world leader after the Caesars of old. As the Antichrist slips through each of the legal charges against him, as his predecessor, Adolf Hitler, did before taking control in Germany, his public praise and adoration will increase phenomenally. People will fill the streets bashing those who refuse to publicly worship him as humanity’s new savior.

So, how do we, as the faithful remnant, prepare for the Antichrist? Seduction will be your biggest worry. As his followers are seduced and led astray, they will bring great pressure upon the rest of the world to follow them in their seduction. From social media to the workplace you will be confronted with people who have been swept away by the power and majesty of the Antichrist. If you could only try to imagine what it was like to live in Germany during the rise of Hitler, it would give you a sense of what lies ahead. The faithful remnant will be much like the Jews who hunkered down, tried to escape, or openly denied their ancestry. I would hope that we as God’s faithful remnant will not deny who we are in Christ. I would hope and pray that we would stand firm and not be led astray by a false hope that all will be changed through his tutelage. The only real change is Jesus Christ making us individually into a new creation and changing us from one degree of glory to another (II Corinthians 5:17; 3:18). Also, we must hold tight to the original prophecy that God will not return to set up His Kingdom until after the dreaded Antichrist is publicly revealed and has led the entire world to worship him as the anointed one (II Thessalonians 2:3; Revelation 13:7-8). Furthermore, when Christ returns every eye will see Him descend from heaven in glory to rapture, or catch up, His beloved children (Matthew 24:30-31; I Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 1:7). We as God’s faithful remnant will reject any man who pridefully claims to bring about world peace and prosperity through his own initiative.

Although we may need to be careful with great discernment on who we share the eternal gospel with, we will struggle to ensure that our immediate family is part of the remnant even if we are exposed to those in power. This is something we should be working on now by first warning them of what the Bible says about the Antichrist, as outlined in this article, and secondly to ensure that they are being transformed into the image of Christ every day of their lives. I hope you can clearly see that I am not pointing fingers or naming any person in particular, but I am through the grace of God giving you enough information to beware of the one coming soon to seduce the entire world. There is no time like the present. We must prepare for the Antichrist who is much closer than you think. It is time to look in the mirror at our own Christian walk to determine if we are truly following the risen Christ or are we following the great men of our era proclaiming unbelievable things. Test your relationship today to determine if you are trusting in God exclusively for all of your problems or if you are trusting in psychology and the governmental programs of mankind.

It absolutely breaks my heart that so many people will be led astray. Deception is a slippery slope engineered by the devil. Step by step the powers of darkness will lead you to embrace cute little videos on social media designed to make you question your heritage in Christ where He promises to grow us from one degree of glory to another, giving us everything you need for life and godliness. These little videos also promise to give you wisdom for all of life leading you to put your trust in your own abilities to solve all of your problems. When this happens, then it’s only one small step to putting your trust in the Antichrist who also promises to give you, your family, and your country everything it needs.  We must come out from among them while we still have time. The longer we stay among them the stronger the deception will become causing you to strike out at your own family members who disagree. The great falling away is a reality that will cut into the fabric of every family and every household. God help us to stand firm against powers of darkness and the Antichrist. Finally, don’t just share this article but discuss it with your family and friends, pleading with them to seek the God of heaven who will validate all things.

What Causes the Global Chaos

We will take a deeper dive into what will cause the global chaos affecting every people group and nation in the world. What causes global chaos is a most difficult question that will open the darkest caverns of evil that have invaded the world as we know it. This unimaginable evil has affected humanity in a way that is not expected, nor is it realized. Many have come forward with their plausible explanations of what is causing the tragic events in the world that have horrifically afflicted humanity, but none has seen the real cause. They have not seen the underlying reason that’s causing humanity to experience one devastating tragedy after another. Only the Spirit of the living God can expose the truth of what is happening behind the scenes driving humanity to the edge of insanity and its unfathomable destruction. We have all seen and experienced what is happening all around us. We have experienced the pain and the suffering. We have agonized and even cried out to the Lord, but few understand the reality of what is happening. There is a cause and effect. The primary cause of the global chaos is turning away from God and the effect is reaping what humanity has sown. We will look closely at how this effect on humanity is causing a global chaos.

Recently, I have written a lot about what is falling upon the world from the horrific weather patterns blamed on global warming to the increase in earthquakes, wars, famines, forced migration, and even more deadly pandemics to come. Today, I will write about the effect it is having on humanity creating a very chaotic world on the verge of self-annihilation. We cannot just say that people will be sorely affected, we have to go much deeper and understand together how humanity will be affected. There is one main cause for the chaos that creates a multifaceted problem. In one word, it is migration. The migration of the masses within a nation-state and the migration of people fleeing from other countries. The migration from within and from without is causing a severe social/economic problem. Although these migrations seem dissembler, they are more similar than thought, for they both seek better economic and social conditions. They both seek freedom from unfair or unjust laws. They both seek security from unchecked lawlessness. They both seek a safer area from the increasing natural disasters and the pending pandemics. They both seek stability in the workforce and society unknowingly caused by the dumbing down of humanity. In 2022, 8.2 Million people migrated between states adding to the chaos.

The dumbing down of humanity will have a profound effect on everyone causing sociological, economic, and psychological problems. When humanity begins to lose its ability to rationalize, think complex thoughts, to learn, and retain new material, it will lead to instability in the workplace and even in personal relationships. This dumbing down is caused in large part by technology, advanced algorithms, and artificial intelligence. When it is no longer required to maintain basic skills of penmanship, mathematics, and grammar along with other basic skills there is a dumbing down leading humanity to become ever more dependent upon the Antichrist system. Furthermore, when humanity can no longer function properly in the workplace it will lead to a run-on psychological medication that will put them under control of the world system that controls its distribution. It will also cause increased lawlessness in obtaining the medication. Moreover, when humanity can no longer function in the workplace it will severely limit the quality of the products and services that will have a detrimental effect on the society. This will create a larger migration from one job site to another which will inhibit their ability to become proficient in their task. This too will increase the number of workers seeking to withdraw into the caves of technology and become a part of the unemployed and homeless population. Every step of the way humanity’s unemployed workforce will be controlled by those in power.

That’s not the only migration. The other migration of people that’s been displaced by wars, famines, disease, poverty, and lack of work will increase tenfold from other countries. In the coming days there will be no way to stop this migration with a million people camped on your border. Walls and extra border guards will not stop the inevitable. Allowing a few to come in by placing them in confined areas and campsites will not work. In reality, it won’t be much different than the Great Depression in this country when thousands upon thousands fled to California in search of work and a new beginning from their worsening poverty. Most people will simply be looking for a better life. This has already created a lot of fear, especially when those in power tell us that they are lawless groups that bring in drugs and that some could be terrorists. Global migration will continue and get much worse, combined with the internal migration from a dumbed-down workforce, it will only create a more dangerous environment spawning lawlessness, homelessness, and an array of psychological problems. Migration is nothing new. In previous generations, migrants were assimilated into the host countries in which they migrated. Today this is not happening creating even greater chaos at the border.

Along with migration, the dumbing down of humanity, and the rejection of God it opened the door to the powers of darkness. Once the door is opened then evil and unwanted thoughts are cast upon the minds of humanity that increase exponentially as we grow closer to the end. Although some of these thoughts could be generated by movies, videos, and social media platforms, most will come directly from the powers of darkness. These evil thoughts will add to the chaos in the world driving people to do the unimaginable. These thoughts are so prevalent and powerful that they will drive many to the precipice of insanity. These thoughts are also responsible for the instability in the world’s workforce causing many to constantly migrate to another job, in a different state or country. All the world’s counselors and psychotropic drugs will not solve this problem. Depression, anxiety, and hallucinations pale in comparison to what individuals must endure to struggle against these unwanted thoughts of the enemy. People may even look and behave naturally but are completely controlled by their thoughts and emotions. All this only adds to the chaos facing a world that has completely turned its back on God.

Another kind of migration that is dumbing down and destroying humanity is filling their minds with non-essential thoughts. This happens every day from getting up to going to bed. These thoughts are considered to be of our own choosing, pretending that we have discernment, filtering out non-essential thoughts. Not only is the mind filled with an array of information from the world controlled by the powers of darkness, but they rob you of your precious time causing you tremendous problems going forward. We were never created to spend our time in the caves of technology that not only consume our time but throw our schedules and priorities out of sync. People have been known to get so involved with technology, such as searches on the internet, news media, social media, apps on the cellphone, YouTube, television, and the Metaverse that they have forgotten their priorities, their schedules, and their promises to others. They always complain that they don’t have enough time as they are pulled in one direction, and then another by the powers of darkness. Not only do these caves of technology consume our time and mess with our commitments but it has a profound effect on our psyche, which causes undue stress and explosive behavior issues.

In conclusion, I can remember a time when people would never move from their hometown. They stayed in one place built lasting relationships and retired from the same job they had from their high school or college graduation. Yes, it’s a different day. I can also remember a time before there was technology of any kind. These were beautiful days with ample time to study God’s word without any interruptions from our devices. I remember a time when we had ample time to meet with God privately for hours on end. I can also remember a time when we could study and interact with others to build our theology. I can remember a time when visiting church members as a pastor could take many Spirit-filled evenings of encouraging and being encouraged. Well, we live in a different day now where technology has robbed us of the things that make us human, like keeping our word, fulfilling our commitments, and strengthening our personal relationships. My prayer is that God will deliver His children from the bondage of the technology used in their proverbial caves to escape reality. There is no escaping the fact that humanity is reaping what it has sown. Be strong, be bold, and come out of your technological caves today to face the dying world with a message of hope. Let us lead humanity back to spending all of their recovered time worshipping and serving their Creator.

Fall of the American Empire

I believe it was a tremendous blessing being born in the West and specifically in America. I have great childhood memories of growing up in America and later serving in the armed forces in England. Jog your memory and look beyond memories of the latest movie or post on social media to a time when the whole family sat around the same dinner table sharing stories from the day. Look deep into your memory to a time when television and technology didn’t control your day but allowed you to experience the most beautiful face-to-face relationships. Yes, if we try really hard, we can remember those nights sitting on the front porch in the safety of our neighborhoods. Well, things are different now. Lawlessness, gangs, alarms, and monitoring systems have changed everything pushing us behind closed doors and homes without porches. Yes, America has been on a downward spiral since the last Great War. There has been a lot of news and propaganda that everything will change for the better if we only elect the right person to lead America. I wish it would be that simple, contrary to who they elect, the American Empire will fall. So great will be the fall that every country in the world will be sorely affected. Although there are many reasons for this eventual fall, I believe that there is one underlying reason that has put America and the West on its current trajectory.

To understand this one thing we need to take a trip back to the creation when man was formed in God’s image. At the time of creation, God encoded unique behaviors into the brain of every human being on planet Earth. This encoding is so invasive that it has spawned numerous religions and other cultic practices to reach a higher power or something or someone outside themselves. This has been happening since the cradle of civilization. Although the many different religions were separated by great geographical differences with little or no contact in the beginning, it is amazing that they all had the same premise to seek their god through some ritual to garner his (or her) favor. In time as the civilizations grew closer together it spawned numerous religious wars to safeguard their unique traditions and beliefs in their respective deities. This DNA code did not evolve but was implanted at the moment of creation by the God of all creation. This was done with the foreknowledge that God’s divine truth would be delivered through a chosen people and then eventually through His anointed Son, Jesus Christ. This truth from God was destined to overcome all the barriers erected by self-righteous mankind showing them the true path to God through faith and humility. It would explain the inexplicable desire to be connected with their Creator.

The other code to be implanted in every human being was the knowledge that there are only two biological sexes, one male and the other female, for the distinct purpose of propagating the race. This was also done since the moment of creation. There was a natural drawing together of the two different biological sexes to become one. This was the nature of things since the beginning. The biological distinctiveness is also observed in the other species on the planet. The separation of their biological sexes is often portrayed with distinct differences in their coloring, habits, markings, and even their physical size. It is noteworthy that they have not questioned their biological distinctiveness but carried on that way since the dawn of creation. On the other hand, advanced humanity has questioned their biological distinctiveness caused in large part by their seemingly uncontrollable emotions, their vain imaginations, and the satanic lies from his legion of followers. For many thousands of years questioning one’s biological distinctiveness was only on rare occurrence, typically found among the rich and powerful that could hide or flaunt their perversions. Since the last great war, there has been a growing number of perversions taking place behind closed doors or in the proverbial closet. Recently these closet doors have been slung wide open, opening Pandora’s box.

This perversion is not only fully accepted in America but also throughout the entire Western world. This perversion has changed laws, charged people who stood against them, and entered the public school system to indoctrinate young children. They are teaching young children to exercise their new emotions, to vainly imagine the possibilities of changing their sex, and to ignore the teachings of their religious parents. Essentially, they have thrown God out of the American Empire, or the new Babylon. This perversion has entered every area of society including the government. Well like I said, this has only opened Pandora’s box. Once God is removed, then every new perversion takes root. Everything becomes permissible. As laws are changed, new policies are created, attitudes are changed, and it becomes like a run-away train driving the population further and further away from God and His ethical teachings for all of humanity. Evil is not only whitewashed to make it more appealing to society but also to people with a religious upbringing causing them to accept the sin more readily. The whitewashing of evil in a society can make them feel more righteous and better than the rest of the world, often negatively looking down on other nations. Of course, the whitewashing of evil takes a lot of work changing the curriculum in public education, books in libraries, and acceptance of it in movies, colleges, and even in churches.

Satan and his powers of darkness have become experts in whitewashing evil because he has been doing it since the Garden of Eden. For example, we have seen this in the legalization of drugs, hiding or glossing over the horrendous side effects of prescription medication, and the acceptance of psychology to explain away the evil as simply mental illness. Well, the list can go on, but you get the picture that many in Western civilization believe that they are righteous and will fight the person who says otherwise. We haven’t even touched on alcohol, tobacco, recreational drugs, and a permissively sexual society with no limits. It is the turning away from God and His ethical teachings that continues the downward spiral of the American Empire driving humanity to experiment with all forms of lawlessness and new perversions. Once a nation turns its back on God trusting in its scientific discoveries, technology, and professionals of mental health, they are destined to fall. To trust in another is clearly turning your back on God. And great will be the fall. When God pulls back His protective hand from a nation or empire, then it will experience the full brunt of excessive weather patterns, wars, natural disasters, lawlessness, insanity, and the unhinged chaos among its population. This we have seen increasing year after year.

The Alpha and the Omega has known from the beginning that the new Babylon would turn away from Him, causing a most devastating fall affecting all of humanity and even planet Earth. As I stated in my last article the Lamb of God started the process two thousand years ago with His resurrection. The seven seals, the seven trumpets, and the seven bowls of God’s wrath have been increasing exponentially for the past two thousand years coming now to its consummation to bring the new Babylon to its knees. Remember that the Antichrist will make great promises to fix everything broken. He promises to bring peace out of chaos. He promises to fix the economy and naturalize relationships with all the Muslim nations. He promises to subdue the Muslim hordes who refuse to participate in the new order. He will promise to make America and its Western allies greater than before. He promises to bring unity out of diversity. He promises to build a brave new world. Unfortunately, these are all empty lies that can never be fulfilled. God’s prophecy will not be broken. The Muslim hordes are already on our doorstep, and kingdoms from the North are already promising to continue their march of death and destruction toward the West, along with the horrific weather and natural disasters increasing exponentially we will fall. In conclusion let me strongly encourage you to carefully read Revelation 18:1-24, then re-read my last article, “Silence in Heaven” which gives direction to the faithful remnant.

Bringing Peace Out of Chaos

The coming one known by many different names will bring peace out of chaos. Humanity has witnessed the horror of religious wars for thousands of years. The Muslim hordes have faithfully followed the second woe in the book of Revelation by bringing death and destruction to millions since its founding in the sixth century. Even today it is relentlessly striking at the heels of other religions to convert or destroy. Its primary objective is the annihilation of the state of Israel, to occupy their Holy Mount and all the land of Palestine from the river to the sea. We have witnessed the protests against the Catholic Church spawning numerous Protestant denominations, but this pales in comparison to the chaos caused by the Muslim hordes now occupying or residing in nearly every country in the world seen by their latest bloody protests. This is truly a woe and a blight against humanity. Antisemitism has run rampant in the world adding to the chaos. Well, one is coming soon that will end this chaos bringing forth a new kind of peace. The Muslims call him Al-Masih ad-Dajjal and Christians call him the Antichrist or the Beast in the Book of Revelation. Continue reading Bringing Peace Out of Chaos

Evil Will Unleash an Unimaginable Chaos

We wrote previously about how the image of the beast would bring forth the unity of thought and opinions to lead all of humanity to worship the beast or the Antichrist. Before that happens Satan and the powers of darkness will unleash unimaginable chaos on planet Earth (John 10:10, Revelation 12:12,17). We have written a lot about the increase in global warming, natural disasters, wars, and famines. We have written a lot about the increase in mental illnesses, lawlessness, pandemics, and the great falling away. It is the coming together of all these tragedies that will create unimaginable chaos beyond anything the world has ever witnessed. For years we have only seen bits and pieces of this total chaos by reporting only the latest news stories selected by the gatekeepers to not overwhelm the people. Much was kept secret to prevent pandemonium. At this point, we have not experienced all of it at the same time, which would bring forth total chaos driving many to complete lawlessness, insanity, or suicide. However, this is all quickly changing for the world is now being overwhelmed by every news story concerning weather events, natural disasters, wars, and predicting the next pandemic. Add to this all the false prophets predicting things that are not biblical and you have a recipe for disaster. Continue reading Evil Will Unleash an Unimaginable Chaos
