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.

This Could Be Your Last Warning

You have read the Holy Scripture and heard the prophecies, which has cast most into denial or an elevated state of fear. Many of you have seen with your own eyes the increasing number of major earthquakes, catastrophic storms, seemingly endless heatwaves, and forest fires engulfing an entire continent. At times it seems like the world is coming apart with one disaster after another. Many of you have adopted your favorite prophecy, which attempts to give meaning to what’s currently happening in the world and what’s on the horizon. Some have believed that before things get too bad, they will be whisked away in a secret rapture, while others believe that they must endure the Great Tribulation to strengthen their faith and mold them into all godliness. Unfortunately, some believe that they can bring the Kingdom in by force through the political process and the institution of new laws. Their prophecy is summed up in bringing in the Christian Kingdom by force forcing everyone to obey. Contrary to what you believe, the truth is we are all going to die. Contrary to what you believe the heavens and the earth will pass away, perhaps sooner than you think. This could be your last warning. Continue reading This Could Be Your Last Warning

Seven Lies of the Devil – Part II

To miss what is going on in the world, we would need to be living in a bubble. Of course, as believers, we knew that this day would come when the whole world seems to be falling apart from horrific firestorms to unbelievably extreme temperatures and from unchecked lawlessness to the grossest of sexual perversions. Perhaps the worst for the true believer is to see so many fall away and embrace all the lies of the devil as if they were the gospel truth. It is enough to make you weep in great agony.

We Can Make Things Better

Perhaps the most dangerous lie is that we can make the world better through the political process. This has been a lie used many times throughout history raising up the Caesars, Napoleons, and Hitler’s promising to make things better, but in the end creating a cult-like mentality, which brought death and destruction to the world. This thinking of making things better through the political process is antithetical to the Way presented by Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Jesus Christ came to earth to show us a better way of truly making things better. The Christian way is through transformational change one person at a time. The heart and mind must be changed by putting off the old life and putting on the new life in Christ. The devil cares only about manipulating your heart and mind to believe his lies thus creating a cult-like mentality. He wants you to believe that forcing everyone through his new laws will cause them to align with his way, or your way of thinking, which will overcome the divisions, and establish a brave new world. This is a very dangerous and deceptive lie of the devil that will ingeniously target religious people who will be willing to follow him to hell and back. They will even proclaim him as some kind of saint or savior that will deliver the world from very evil and corrupt people. They may even proclaim that God has raised him to fix the world through the political process. Stop listening to the devil who can even disguise himself as an angel of light (II Corinthians 11:14). This will be the path that the dreaded Antichrist will take causing you to believe that he has your best interest at heart. This deception will be so strong that people will freely worship him as the savior of humanity believing that he alone will stop the wars, the outrageous lawlessness, and even the wrath of God as we had discussed earlier. Let’s stop listening to the devil’s lies and return to God’s way of real lasting change. Continue reading Seven Lies of the Devil – Part II

God’s Will is Beyond Logic

Logic has become a popular term in our day that goes by many different names. It has become the culmination of acquired knowledge, wisdom, and the result of many hours of research. It has also been referred to as a sixth sense, the receiving of a gut feeling, or the expression, “it makes sense.” Logic contrary to what we call it allows humanity to make their many choices in life, which is always a gamble that can cause tremendous suffering when wrong choices are made. Although we make hundreds of decisions every day, there are a few that could have profound consequences if the wrong decision is made. Unfortunately, those consequences are not always immediately observable as we see through a glass darkly, limited by time and space (I Corinthians 13:12). Most will do all their homework, run the numbers, and have even done their research, but for fallen humanity, it’s always a gamble. Granted, some of fallen humanity doesn’t even bother doing any kind of research but allows their felt needs to direct their choices in life, even if they know it’s wrong or costly. When humanity removes God from their decision-making or just pays Him lip service, then the consequences can be devastating. So, it’s essential to understand God’s will even if it’s beyond logic.

Pushing the Prophetic Timeline

I have written extensively about the Kings of the East coming against the West, Israel, and the United States in the last Great War or Armageddon. Most know the prophecy that the Antichrist will unite the West and Israel to stand against the Kings of the East in this final war (Revelation 16:13-16). Please see below, “An Open Letter to President Putin and President Zelenskyy,” I sincerely hoped through the giving up of some land for Russia’s land bridge, and the opportunity of NATO membership for Ukraine, then peace could be realized. However, I now see that both parties are not interested in peace, which will unfortunately push the prophetic timeline forward. The prophetic timeline is beginning to unfold when we see Russia trying to enlist other Eastern powers (or Kings) to support their undeclared war against Ukraine and the West. Mr. Putin has spoken to many foreign leaders along with those in his Bloc to win support for the undeclared war. The prophetic timeline is beginning to unfold when the West is wholeheartedly joining in the undeclared war against Russia by supplying advanced weapons, technology, and many crippling sanctions. The prophetic timeline is being aggressively pushed forward to fulfill the prophecy. Continue reading Pushing the Prophetic Timeline
