7 Important Bible Verses About The Antichrist

The Antichrist has long been a biblical character that people want to learn more about. Throughout the years, many people have tried to predict who it is going to be, or even who it is currently. From people guessing it’s President Obama, political figures, etc. it’s clear that many people have some false thoughts about the Antichrist. So, just who is this mysterious and evil Bible character? Here are 7 important bible verses about the antichrist.

 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 “Let no one deceive you by any means; for that day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshipped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.”

With these two verses, volumes are taught about the Antichrist. Most obviously, it is clear that he is not an admirable or trustworthy person. All of this is happening in a time of deception. He’s described as a man of sin (which, in case you didn’t realize, is bad!) who takes people away from worshipping the true God and makes them worship him instead (pretending to be God).

Daniel 7:25 “He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, shall persecute the saints of the Most High, and shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand for a time and times and half a time.”

Even if you don’t understand this verse fully, you still get the point; there’s bad stuff going on! You get the feeling that the antichrist is one that is pretty good with words and is able to persuade people to do whatever he wants. He’s persecuting those who believe in the true God and he’s trying to change laws for his own benefit.

Revelation 13:3 “And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast.”

At some point, it appears that the Antichrist suffers some type of deadly wound and appears to be raised from the dead. Perhaps it’s not an actual raising from the dead, but the point is he was severely hurt, to the brink of death, and was able to recover, which gains him widespread fame and a huge following.

 1 John 2:18 “Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour.”

Although the Antichrist will be utterly horrendous, this verse speaks of antichrists that have already been here; they are a foreshadowing, so to speak, of what is to come. Some people have given names like Hitler and Stalin as these mini-antichrists who foreshadow an even more evil man, the Antichrist.

1 John 2:22 “Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son.”

Here, it is clear that the antichrist will deny Jesus Christ and the Father and being legitimate. Instead, as we learned in other verses, he will make people worship him as God.

17 Quotes About The Love Of God

Revelation 13:5 “And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months.”

Once again, he will be a person who can speak quite eloquently. However, something here seems to suggest that he’s not the ultimate one in power. Consider that it says “he was given authority.” This, of course, implies that he was not acting alone and in his own power!

bible verses about the antichrist

Daniel 7:24 “The ten horns are ten kings who shall arise from this kingdom. And another shall rise after them; he shall be different from the first ones, and shall subdue three kings.”

Apparently, he is smart and powerful enough to subdue three different kingdoms. Also, consider the fact that the kings that were mentioned were not puny at all; they were actually quite powerful. But, the antichrist will be far more powerful!

Conclusion

Despite people really hoping (for some odd reason) that the antichrist is Obama, George Bush, or even the Pope, the biblical text never reveals the actual name of the person. The Scriptures paint a picture as to what he will be like and what the time in which he comes to power will be like. So, it’s important to get any knowledge of the antichrist straight from the source—The Word of God.

    The Antichrist was Adolf Hitler.

    • Well, some people certainly think so! However, he wouldn’t match the full description. He could, though, be a foreshadow of the antichrist to come–which will be far worse.

    • SJ

      Hitler was the one that made me realize people can harbour demonic spirits….I studied him on tv for several decades unable to put my finger on why he was so strange and evil and I wondered if he was a foreshadowing of the antichrist like Michael said above then I studied demonology and I realized he must fit one or possibly more than one demonic profile….You just need the right book with the demons categorized to help spot them.

      I recommend this book to anyone who’d like to learn more.

        now YOU… ARE… onto something… but please be careful, the arcane isn’t a playground… tread lightly and ask solitary questions to as not attract attention less you help them destroy even more.. some messed up people here, that’s for certain, but yes, indeed… something else was bothering him…

        • SJ

          You are right it is an area to tread lightly and I am tempted to tread out of it because I would rather have my joy and focus on Jesus’ radiance then know everthing.

          It’s just I am a people person and Hitler always caught my attention and until I had more pieces of the puzzle I couldn’t put my finger on it. But we have to be careful not to wander into high places. I think the word high places in the bible sometimes refers to politics. I decided a while back to steer clear of politics. There is too much corruption in high places.

            poli = many… tics = blood sucking creatures… Latin Definition, how fitting, eh? kings, queens, peasants the wretched evil… all die equal in death. not caring here… is the torment there for nobody else will either so be careful what you sow and never think you can control anything… but your own choices. the dark devours while offering punch and pie and cookies and milk… they do not care, as long as they get what they want. and trust me, they’re everywhere, if you LQQK closely you can see them, their motives, their trixxx… say one thing, do another, compete, compete, compete, lie, lie, lie, cheat some more and if not getting what they want… kill, kill, KILL… or cry racism, misogyny, whatever the word of the day is and it’s usually ‘legs’… trust is a hard thing to come by, trust in the Lord, however, what is occurring IS BEING ALLOWED TO OCCUR, for various reasons, factions, wants, desires… all for show… all fo’ sho’… they play both sides in every issue and do not care about right and wrong which everybody knows… they took the baits, now they want to pass the buck… whooops! little II L8 for that. 3 religions, 3 prophecies, 3 ways in, 3 ways through, 3 ways out… and a choice to be made. Of course though, nobody cares and ya can’t trust your media… but it easy to see Obama got lied to by his handlers and knows something he seriously does not like… like.. HE GOT PLAYED… HARD. Iran schmyran = nuke the idiots, same with the rest of the “humanity” that is responsible for not caring of even being alive. such is the way of things it seems… but most people WW are cool, just want to live, experience life and move on to the next… after all, this is creation, filled with temptation. make good choices. trust your gut. ignore your emotional responses and learn to learn and compress knowledge and use logic… “feelings” don’t pay your bills and are for the bedroom… and some seriously stupid ‘people’ WANT to destroy America, lol… nah, not while I AM HERE. ” ) I’m wandering around this land, checking things out, realizing that the media is responsible for A LOT of the hysteria, they have their monetarily driven profit and control agendas, etc. – don’t like the games they play though, esp. the gender ones. suggest they iron out their self created problems and step it up to human a notch, same with the other half. kids, lol… holy moly… don’t know nothing fir in times of war education is the first thing to go, so how long have we been in this? long enough. like I said, most people are cool, but there is something else here so Shhhh! Bwe vwery vwery qwuiet… I AM… hunting… got their structure fleeced and boring into their roots… because morons go after the branches. A/S/L = hit me up private, easier… to answer your questions. ” ) if you so choose, if not, oh well, anyhow, take the very best of care, control your being and ignore emo reactions… stand firm. ” ) it’s just life, and life… is full of if’s now isn’t it?

  • Linda Stadstad

    Daniel 7:7 states that the fourth beast will be diverse from those before it. Sounds like Obama to me!

    • Kerry Wallace

      Oh yes, a pick and choose evangelist. How convenient that you forget that the Bible also says God is no respecter of people. Your comment wreaks of racism. The antichrist will first and foremost fool the elect of God and seems Trump has hoodwinked about 70% of them. Did you know what the address for Kushner’s building is that he fought so hard to get? 666 5th Ave New York. He wanted specifically that number. I have seen people try to equate many presidents and pope to the antichrist over the years, but for the first time in my lifetime, DJT fits the description in every way. Thank God his reign will only be 42 months! That is 6 months shy of reelection!

      • Sadly, you err greatly for seems this place on earth called the usa has had it’s way with you…….

  • Pam Simms

    The Antichrist is indeed Obama and a careful reading of Revelation 17-18 where Babylon, America, is discussed, the Antichrist does seem to rise over it. He hates her and seeks to destroy her. So many Christians have been told it cannot be Obama so often they will be caught totally unaware when he does come to power over the whole earth. And, I might add, the Pope is the False Prophet. We should be warning anyone who will listen instead of looking around for someone else that might fit the description when they are right in front of us every day doing their evil deeds just waiting to completely rise to power.

    • Panamon Brown

      If you think about the Antichrist is the leader of the Illuminati. He’ll have a shadow over one of his eyes, which is commonly seen with certain celebrities, it’s known as the Antichrist’s symbol.

      • Christopher C

        it’s because he looked through a ‘glory hole’ once… or maybe it was Boy George, who knows?

    • Facebook User

      On what basis do you assert that the Pope is the False Prophet? Is there a tiny verse somewhere in the Bible which tells us this?

      • Pansy Blackwell

        The False Prophet will be a phony televangelist. They egged Donald Trump. I have an idea of who would me a good candidate for Trump

    • Pansy Blackwell

      Daniel 11:37 clearly disputes your claim about Obama. it points toward Donald Trump.

  • SJ

    I’m not a futurist on prophecy….I am a preterist. The Book of Revelation says these things are soon to pass so they have been happening all along and what we have to do is lay history alongside the Book of Revelation to see it.

    The little horn rising from the big horn is the Catholic Church rising up in the midst of the demise of the Roman Empire.

    We’re suppose to be trusting that God is in control of all our circumstances yet alot of people are alarming people with futuristic speculations like women scared of delivering a baby.

    But Jesus is our deliverer so we really have nothing to be scared about. All End Time prophecy ever did to me was make me evangelize harder to get all the lambs in before Jesus’ Second Coming.

    • JC

      Thank you it’s about the history of antichrists (atheists) and it’s natural rise and fall in culture.

      • SJ

        I still believe in the preterist view because I had the Book of Revelation explained to me chapter by chapter with the historical comparison made by somebody who really knows church history.

        But I reopened to the futrist view recently when I encountered this video by Wahlid Shoebat.

        I have recently started to think both can happen.

        Shoebat on The Beast ( long but I think worth the watch )
        http://therightscoop.com/walid-shoebat-on-biblical-eschatology-and-why-islam-is-the-beast/

        God could explain things down through history and still be warning us about the future.

        Warning 8 Signs in the Heaven is also a very thought provoking video:
        https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=HXUqfNQ3J0o

        I think you’re right the antichrist spirit can be spotted throughout history. If someone matches 1 John 3’s description then he could be displaying an antichrist spirit but the West for the past few hundred years has been in denial of evil spirits. Though if you read up on them you start to recognize people exhibiting them. I realized
        recently that a lot of the people that accuse Christians of lacking the ability to think critically have the critical spirit which they think is critical thinking because we didn’t reason to the same conclusion that they did. But we can have a higher sense of perception that the bible calls spiritual discernment and sometimes the gift of discerning of spirits. None of the spiritual gifts passed away….they are still all available to Christians.

    Only two of the quotations you present mention the anti-christ by name and they are both in chapter 2 of John. The others you claim relate to the anti-christ but there is absolutely no evidence to suggest that this is the case. If you have evidence to the contrary please present it.
    Certainly the Beast with seven heads is undeniably the League of Arab States formed in 1945 of 7 Arab countries. The “head” which was wounded was actually “cut off” in 1979 when one of the states, namely Egypt, was expelled for signing a treaty with Israel. The “mortal wound” was healed when Egypt was re-elected in 1990 and “the whole world wondered after the beast”
    A league of 7 nations cannot be the antichrist!

    • RON

      The Man of Sin/Little Horn/Man of Perdition all relate to the Anti-Christ.

      • Facebook User

        Who says so? They say exactly what they say – the Man of Sin/Little Horn/Man of Perdition and nothing else!
        Only self-appointed Bible interpreters claim they relate to the antichrist and with absolutely no evidence to even suggest that this is the case!

        • Wildblood779

          Indeed, I agree that people like to speak frivolously about the Bible without much evidence, but some things (metaphors/parables, for instance) seem to relate more obviously than others, The Beast that pursues the woman appears to be either the Antichrist or Satan, but it is possible that he/it represents something else entirely.

          In the end, there is a reason why all this is written in riddles. I believe it is to provide us with more reason to have faith in the Lord (as certain knowledge in the future will offer more hope as of itself due to less worry in the unknown).

          Although, the previous statement could also be seen as frivolous, and is one of the reasons why the Catholic church and Jehovah’s Witnesses are creating atheists and agnostics instead of Christians.

          • Facebook User

            Jesus said “let he who reads, understand.”
            He wants us to understand and the Book of Revelation is completely understandable if people will read exactly what it says and read numerous little clues, deliberately planted along the way.
            The most important identity to understand is the “Beast with 7 heads and ten horns” and appears in the first revelation, (chronologically) in the book and is about the “Woman with a crown of 12 stars.”
            But she is NOT giving birth to Jesus, as everyone seems to maintain! This is impossible because the voice in Rev Ch 4 says: “come up here and I will show you what must happen HEREAFTER”.
            Since the events involving John of Patmos are universally agreed to be in 93-95 AD this CANNOT be the birth of Jesus because that was nearly 100 years in the past at that time!
            The incorrect identification of this beast as The Roman Empire means that the whole Book of Revelation is completely misinterpreted!
            So who is the child? The 12 stars gives a clue to say “this is about Israel”. But a birth can be about a baby or it can equally be applied to a nation.
            What sort of book of prophecy about the END TIMES would the Book of Revelation be, if it did not predict the birth of the New Jewish State of Israel in 1948?
            The “Beast with 7 heads and ten horns” was said to be “standing by to devour the baby at birth” or “”standing by to devour the newly formed State of Israel” in 1948! – So who was the beast?
            Luckily we know, with the benefit of hindsight or maybe with the help of Google, who this beast was and indeed is.
            It is later described as “the Beast who is, is not, yet is”
            Does anyone agree so far and if so, who is the Beast with 7 Heads? We will then be able to continue. If you don’t agree so far then there is no point in continuing!!

            The Woman is Israel. She is dressed in the Sun, Moon and 12 Stars. Now go read Josephs Dream about his Family paying obeisance unto him.Genesis 37:9 And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me.

            HE WAS THE 12TH STAR. This is Israel. The Woman. Which brought forth the Child Jesus.

          • truthoutnow

            All y’all place way too much credence in dreams, especially those upon with prophecies have been based. They arise from our life experiences and subconsciousness.

          • RON

            John referenced the Old Testament 264 times. That is the Key to understanding Revelation. The Woman is Israel. Anyone that doesnt understand that is not being real. The Woman (Israel) gave birth to the baby Jesus NOT THE CHURCH. It is common sense

          • truthoutnow

            Which books of the “New” Testament are you referring to when you say “John,” the Gospel, the 1st and 2nd letters, or Revelation?

          • RON

            Well since I spoke of Revelation, I figured that was obvious. But Revelation is only understood by referencing the Old Testament. This is obvious throughout Revelation.

            John speaks about the Great Harlot and mentions Babylon, not because it is Babylon, but because Babylon was where LL FALSE RELIGION became great. The Great Harlot is FALSE RELIGION of all kind.

          • truthoutnow

            Well, it is not as if it was written by the disciple John although the author was probably an elder in a Johannine community. How much credence you want to give to it is up to you but I’m not buying it.

          • RON

            No, it was wrote by John, but the very first verse gives you the Author. It say this is the Revelation of Jesus Christ, as given to Him by God. So John only wrote everything Jesus TOLD HIM TO WRITE. Thus it was more or less dictation. That is why it is not like Johns Gospels. But then again these so called know it alls dont know crap in reality.

            This coming from someone who says “Jesus” wasn’t around when John wrote the books of Revelation, which makes you really ignorant. God is Eternal. Maybe your biggest problem is you believe men over God……………i.e. Oxford…lol

          • truthoutnow

            No Ron, I use my brain and ability to exercise deductive reasoning. Jesus was not “living” among the people you claim he was “talking” to. Your continuing demonstration of your ignorance speaks for itself. As far as I’m concerned, the “inspired word of God” is as much attributable to inebriation, fasting, mental illness, hubris, egotism, and hallucinogenic substances as it was to anything else and Revelation is one of the outstanding examples. I guess you have no respect for scholars, eh? It’s folks like you who are turning this country into a divisive squabble. Try getting a grip on reality. I won’t bother trying to knock any more sense into your cranial cavity so have fun with your fantasies.

          • truthoutnow

            We can get into a long theological discussion here if you really care to.

            Religions emerged when homo sapiens had questions they couldn’t answer and attributed irregular happenings (i.e., punishments) to a deity or a group of deities (such as in ancient Greece and the Roman Empire). As scientific knowledge continued to increase, many of those mysterious phenomena came to be understood and explainable. How long did ‘the church” think the world was flat and to suggest otherwise was a heresy? The inspired “word of God” was more likely inspired by hubris, conceit, food poisoning, alcoholic consumption, hallucinogenic substances, fasting (in the dessert for 40 days and nights), and the effort to obtain power and “blessing.” How many wrongs have been done in the name of a deity? Insofar as Judaism and Christianity are concerned why did “God” say, in Genesis, “Let us make man in our image.” And why, in the Old Testament, was he a jealous and interventionist God, and of whom was he jealous? Man’s fickleness?

            Since we’ve started entering and exploring “outer” space and the Hubble Telescope is showing us even more of outer space, where is heaven? And is there really a hell beneath our feet? Those are merely scare tactics and wishful promises the superstitious wish and choose to believe in. The “Bible” contains many inconsistencies and yet there are literalists out there who think they can explain all of those away. Good luck with that.

            For all of the people who thank a deity for their “blessings” how many of them choose to hold that same omniscient and omnipotent creator deity accountable for tragedies and things like tectonic plate shifts, volcanoes, meteors, solar storms, earthquakes, and tsunamis/tidal waves

            And yes, Paulette, too many misogynist men and not enough empowered women wrote the collection of holy books.

            1 The Revelation of JESUS CHRIST, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:

          • truthoutnow

            How shortly was that supposed to come to pass? The disciples seemed to believe that the “end” was coming in their lifetimes. And yet, we’re still here. Don’t worry we’re exterminating our own and many other innocent species. And the earth will, over time, heal itself from our abuses of it.

          • RON

            The Greek root word is en/1722, which means a “fixed position” so Jesus Christ is telling John, these things I show you are fixed, and will come to pass. I can’t help it if you are not studious, I understand that we have to be diligent, and study hard.

          • truthoutnow

            I’m a lot more studious than you care to imagine. What is the specific book, chapter and verse(s) of where you make this observation.?

            You know, there’s a joke about the people who believe that the original KJV is the only legitimate English translation of the Hebrew and Greek texts. “If it was good enough for Jesus, it’s good enough for me,”

            Now we know that Jesus conversed in Aramaic, not Hebrew or Greek and we also know that most of his disciples were probably not fluent in Greek, spoken or written. So who wrote the Gospels and why should we trust the Greek version as the true and final arbiter of what some call the inspired word of God? Not that there is any true and final arbiter. You are quibbling over trivial passages and interpretations which appear to have great significance. How much of Revelation’s prophecies have come true?

            Do you think that the people who lived through many vicious times didn’t imagine that they were in the end of times. Of course, for them, it was frequently the end of their personal time.

            It is irrelevant what language someone spoke in, as log as the translation is proper, everything holds up. No translations are 100 percent correct, sorry. With a computer it is much easier for us them 500 years ago. SORRY DIMMY.

          • truthoutnow

            The major question in response to your explanation is “what were they properly translating” if Jesus and his disciples were speaking Aramic and didn’t write anything down?

          • truthoutnow

            Talk about people who speak frivolously about the Bible, with fabricated reasoning. Why would a creator deity require his purported Son to die a shameful death on a cross and how was that salvific?

        • RON

          Yes sir, they say exactly what they say, but you have to know scriptures, which I do having been a preacher for over 25 years.

          The Man of Sin is specific, speaking of the Man of Perdition, the one that comes out of the pit. The Little Horn is also the Anti-Christ, this is very obvious. The Little Horn arises out of the Fourth Beast (Rome or the European Union) in the LAST DAYS, He also arises out of Greece ( Daniel 8) via one of the Four Generals of Alex the GREAT in the END TIME of Their Kingdom. And he stands up against the Prince of princes (Jesus) but is defeated without hand.

          Yes, we know exactly what these terms refer to.

          • Facebook User

            It’s good to be able to discuss things with someone who knows the scriptures!

            My point is that it doesn’t seem to say anywhere in the Bible that any of these terms or entities actually relate to the AntiChrist.

            You say things like “the little horn is is also the Anti-Christ, this is very obvious” but it’s not obvious to me

            Please tell me where in the Bible it makes it “obvious” that the little horn is the Anti-Christ.

          • RON

            Hello again my friend. The Anti-Christ is the least used term of all, but the most recognized in popular culture. I could go these these and pinpoint why they are the Same Person, Anti-Christ and why they are evident. It will take a larger than normal post. In Daniel chapters 7 and 8 Gabriel the Arch-Angel interprets Daniels Dreams.

            In Daniel 7 Daniel dreams of the Four Beast systems, Babylon, Persia, Greece and Rome…I will for brevity skip t the Fourth and show you how it matches with Revelation.

            Dan 7:7 After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had TEN HORNS. 8 I considered the horns, and, behold, there CAME UP among them ANOTHER LITTLE HORN, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in THIS HORN were EYES like the EYES OF A MAN, and a MOUTH SPEAKING great things.{{This is a MAN, he is a Dreadful Power, Horns mean Powerful Nations in Prophecy, but this is a LITTLE HORN, signifying a Powerful Man !!! }}

            (Gabriel Interprets) Daniel 7:17 These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth. 18 But the saints of the most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever. 19 Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass; which devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet;

            20 And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that SPAKE very great things, whose look was more STOUT than his fellows.

            21 I beheld, and the same horn MADE WAR WITH THE SAINTS, and prevailed against them; 22 Until the Ancient of days came (Jesus), and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.

            23 Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom (Rome/European Union) upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. 24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. (Anti-Christ is THIS LITTLE HORN, NO DOUBT, THEY MATCH UP IN Revelation I will show you. )

            25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the SAINTS of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. ( A time is a year so this is 3 1/2 years, Daniel tells us this. Which is also 1260 days or 42 Months)

            Revelation 13:1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and TEN HORNS, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of BLASPHEMY.

            5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue FORTY AND TWO MONTHS. !!!!

            6 And he opened his mouth in BLASPHEMY against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.

            7 And it was given unto him to MAKE WAR WITH THE SAINTS, and to OVERCOME THEM: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

            {{{ So, as we see, this is the Very Same Beast, the Anti-Christ/Beast of Revelation is the Little Horn of Daniel, Both were Given Power to MAKE WAR WITH SAINTS, both were Given this power for 42 Months. (Time is a yea times is 2 years and a Half a time, this is explained in the book of Daniel. He says GREAT THINGS against God and He Blasphemes against God. The Same. Both are in League with Ten Kings. This is the Same Man and Christ Overcomes Both. }}}

            As per The Man of Sin, this is the most specific of all because he is called the Son of Perdition. This is what I was told in a Vision in 1986, I had a vision, I was running with 2 Small Kids, and I hid behind a bush by a house from EVIL PEOPLE Chasing me. God spoke loudly telling me, “The Man of Sin is Here” so the Anti-Christ has been here at least 30 years, he is probably 40-50 years old now. God must have known me (weak man LOL) Because He gave me another vision to make sure I never doubted His first vision. I saw Jimmy Swaggart preaching in a Huge Auditorium to MAYBE 10 People and I was like WHAT ??? Then, within 2 weeks he had fallen from Grace. I never Doubted the First vision after that. The Anti-Christ is alive and in the world today.

            Daniel 7 says he arises out of the Fourth Beast/European Union. In Daniel 8 He arises out of One of the Four Generals Kingdoms that stood up in Alexander the Greats Stead, in the LATTER TIME of Their Kingdom. So He arises out of Two Kingdoms A CONUNDRUM, or is it ? Greece is in the European Union.

            The Assyrian means of Turkish Descent, which is right by Greece.

            In Rev 13, the Beast is described as Like unto a Leopard.

            The Prime Minister of Greece, is an Atheist, and his parents are from Turkey.

            Sorry, I almost thought I was talking to someone who might know something but now you’ve brought other prophecies into the discussion which are totally irrelevant and it’s obvious you really haven’t got a clue about what Revelation actually means!
            Anyway, you will see that following my last communication to you, I have been forced to agree that the “man of perdition” is the anti-Christ, following the argument between Donald Trump and the pope and my reply to “Caveman” above sets out the reasons and confirms Donald Trump is the Anti-Christ!

            Don’t forget an immature one. Instead of staying on the subject, User began calling you names, Ron. To me, that’s a sign of immaturity.
            I came in here, because a Jewish friend, I’ve known this woman since 1975, has joined a Bible study and the teacher of the Bible study all but demands the Scriptures do not speak of a Great Tribulation, nor (according to her) do they speak of the Antii-Christ.

            Of course, this type attitude – a teacher, who tells baby Christians or people, who are only interested in MAYBE becoming a Christian, that others are not telling the truth, when we speak of a Great Tribulation (btw, I have it on good authority that the Great Tribulation will be 3 1/2 years – 42 months – not seven years, as is commonly believed).

            Sorry Ron, but you haven’t explained anything, in spite of your long rambling reply.
            You have just cobbled together various passages from the Bible and made a few unwarranted assumptions, like the fourth beast being Rome.
            It isn’t Rome because the fourth beast is an End-Time kingdom and the Roman Empire disappeared a long time ago.
            The Fourth kingdom, diverse from all the others, is AMERICA

            Your having been a “preacher” for 25 years doesn’t prove anything except your professed and self-proclaimed insight and knowledge. I have no reason to be persuaded or impressed by your rantings. Rome or the European Union? Quite a few centuries in between those two.

            So, what seminary did you graduate from and which denomination did you serve in?

    • G.Frazier

      What I’ve learned is that the beast, with seven heads represents seven nations and that the beast, with 10 heads (in the Book of Revelation) represents the European Union.

      All of these still have one distinct goal…To destroy the nation of Israel and everybody knows that, when they attempt that, the Lord, with his army, will destroy THEM!!

      • Facebook User

        Where exactly in the Book of Revelation does it mention a beast with 10 heads? I can only find a beast with 7 heads and TEN HORNS which is the one I previously identified as the League of Arab States.
        So where does Europe come into the equation and why would Europe want to destroy Israel?

  • Panamon Brown

    Wouldn’t the Antichrist be the leader of the Illuminati? After all, several of them have his mark, a shadow over their eye. My Mom and I think he was once Mormon, because if you leave the church with a testimony and choose a very wicked lifestyle, then you’ll go to what’s called Outer Darkness. It’s a place with no glory, no light.

    • Tayyab Akbar

      my bro you are too damn right about the antichrist
      the illuminati, freemason and illumicorp etc.. these organiztions are staging the world for their waited messiah actually the antimessiah (antichrist).

      my friend my utmost sincere advice to you is to read the Islamic point of view and your own religious books and compare them
      and do some research on illuminati and listen to some islamic scholars about illuminati
      remember i am not try to make you a muslim but i am try to help you know the reality of the antichrist

  • Christopher C

    anti = in place of… Jewish versions name no “anti-Christ”, Islam has their duality as well… for one man’s freedom fighter is simply anthers terrorist. duality. like this isn’t a plan of ? well guess what? somebody on Earth thinks, says they’re ‘g-d’ right now, and now in the ways they try to make you think. everything starts small and they’re setting the stage indeed for reasons that are only apparent in the near future. the world is actually, no sh!t or make believe facing a limited or all out war and who stacked the world this way? why would ‘satan’ destroy itself? when it’s goal is just in sight, etc. sorry, not buying it, man all-ways destroys man because of man’s natures… or at least so they say. personally, I think, feel and believe somebody just needs their ass kicked really really hard right back to crazy-people land where they came from. greed. imaginary power. trade. politics, etc. all for show. all… part of the plan… so, duality, the sun and the moon, night and day, silver and gold, copper and tin, men and women… and something else THAT IS AND HAS BEEN HERE SINCE 07-27-2000… if not before. yes, there are other things than mankind here, what they are = no clue – yet… so I’m saying still. It was a Thursday… exactly one year after Malachi Martin ‘died’. most people got no real clue and are simply taking the bait and getting in he way. There’s a war like you won’t ever see on TV or the media going on, if the world only really, truly knew… there would be no world… don’t freak out… but I do recommend adopting some community skills, etc. and coming up with a plan… because just because you may not do something in no way shape or form means somebody else won’t… so cover your tails. ” )

  • sayonara lily

    It is said that the anti christ is stronger than the three strongest kingdom. so what is strong in the world today? Money. Who control money system in the world? He and his men can control world leaders.

  • Facebook User

    I’m sorry to say that, apart from the passages you quote from John, none of the other passages from the Bible actually mention the Antichrist by name. Who are you to claim that the “Beast” is the Antichrist when the Bible does not support that assumption nor even mention the name!?
    Even where he is mentioned in John, he admits that “many Antichrists have come” (in his time, 2000 years ago) and therefore the “end is near”. This just confirms that John really had no idea what was happening because 2000 years later, the end still has not come! Anything John has to say about the Antichrist can safely be ignored!
    Who else claims there is or will be an antichrist? Only Jesus, who claims quite simply that anyone who denies him is an antichrist and there are lots of those about who are really not going to be a problem to anyone except themselves

    • paulette barrow

      Theres the anti christ and then you have the anti christ spirit.

      • Pansy Blackwell

        Donald Trump is that individual. He has antichrist views.

  • Caveman

    This sounds a lot like a description of Donald J Trump, as the anti-Christ.

    • Facebook User

      Brilliant! The Anti-Christ is revealed – and just a couple of days ago!

      This is what Thessalonians says about him:

      “Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the APOSTASY comes first and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of perdition/destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship so that he takes his seat in the temple of god, displaying himself as being god”

      But the Apostaphy must come first? – No I’d not heard the word before either – But the meaning of the word is apparently: “the abandonment of a religious or political principle”. So before the antichrist is revealed the apostaphy must come.

      A few days ago a really important political and religious principle was abandoned when Pope Francis labelled Donald Trump as “un-Christian” and whether that accusation is true, or false, labelling someone un-Christian is as good as saying they are “Anti-Christ”!

      Donald Trump rounded on the Pope and the Apostaphy that the Pope should not criticize world government figures nor should a world leader criticize the Pope, was definitely abandoned!

      So if Donald Trump is the predicted Anti-Christ, who is going to “rule the world” and “consider himself above God”, then things are not as bad as the Bible scenario seems to predict, where the Anti-Christ is predicted to literally rule the whole world and put to death all who will not worship him! Donald Trump is small fry by comparison!

      However, you can see, the description does fit!

      If he becomes President, he will take his seat in the “Temple of God” (The White House) displaying himself as being “God”. Certainly, as the ruler of the most powerful nation on earth, he might have seemed god-like to ancient people and it might be assumed that everyone in the world would have to “obey” him, although that is somewhat of an overstatement given modern day understanding! democracy!

      Can you envisage Donald Trump as “god of the earth”? The Time of the End must definitely be near – at least we must hope so if this prophecy is fulfilled in November 2016!

      • Caveman

        You have to keep in mind, if he became president he would have his “finger on the button” giving him the possibility of ruling the whole world, (given the opportunity I believe he would try), or put an end to it.
        He also is gaining a large following to include evangelicals. With his “self opinion”, I could see him considering him self as god “only better” because in his mind, he is the best at everything.
        He is also by his statements trying to tear down democracy, bypassing the checks an balances of our system of government. Just sayin the similarities are compelling with the bible verses presented here.

        • paulette barrow

          So is obama and hes not the anti christ its not Trump either

            you are right the antichrist was ALREADY IN THE WORLD during the time of the writing of the epistle of John. and john said there are many antichrists … not just one like these false teachers want you to think. Antichrist is ONLY MENTIONED IN 1 and 2 John 5 times total… John also wrote Revelation you think if he was talking about the antichrist he would have called him such…. bible authority777@yahoo.com

          RULING THE WHOLE WORLD??? where does it say the antichrist is going to rule the world??? you are talking about the beast of the sea…. all that talk about one world government was talking about Rome… the emperors set themselves up as gods and demanded worship… and defiled the temple; have you not studied the abomination of desolations by Antiochus Epiphanies????? the beginning of revelation says THINGS THAT WILL SOON TAKE PLACE… read the context.. bibleauthority777@yahoo.com

      • truthoutnow

        How do you make the White House the “Temple of God?” These leaps of interpretation are just incredible, literally.

        • Pansy Blackwell

          Donald Trump has business acumen to build Trump Tower. The Jews love him. the Third Temple would be a cinch.

      • G.Frazier

        If you take the vision of a beast, in the Book of Daniel, which included the eagle and the same vision, in the Book of Revelation, where the eagle is absent, you might conclude that America will not be here, when the time comes.
        The possibilities are that America will cease to exist or that America will become so allied, with Israel that we’re of little importance to stand out.
        The way it seems, with all the government has been doing, these past 20 years, we may cease to exist. That is also possible because we’re so deeply in debt to China and some other countries that they’ll just come in a take everything away.

            For one all you have to do is listen to him,he tells people that following Jesus is dangerous,that Jesus was a sinner,ect,not only that when he got elcted as pope in my spirit i heard very clearly hes not what he appears to be,but beside that he has said things that a true man of God would never say

          • Facebook User

            like what exactly does he say?

          • paulette barrow

            Things like Jesus is not the Savior,that hes a sinner,believing in him is dangerous,Jesus hanging on the cross was a waste of time,these and other comments are for all to see and hear,do some research on it,hes not filled with the spirit of God,btw have you ever seen the upside down crosses inside the vatican or did you know that the machine thier trying to find aliens with is called satan,Look up sister Charlets testimony of what goes on in the vatican,this is just a few things

          • Tiger Paww

            The pope adds false doctrine.The catholic church does not care for the bible.Never has.Thats why we had the Protestant Movement.Thank God!A lot of jews,muslims,and christians were murdered by the catholic church.The catholic church brung its roman ways into the church.

        • truthoutnow

          Saul. His claim to extraordinary conversion and changing his name to Paul was just a ruse because the hierarchy in Jerusalem didn’t appreciate what he was offering to them so he became an opportunist and created the Christianity that self proclaimed Christians claim to be practicing today, in many cased hypocritically. This has been going on since the fourth century. The Gnostic texts were suppressed and their adherents were persecuted and eliminated so that self serving “main line” theologians could sell their version of the words and wisdom attributed to Jesus.

          • B.O.

            Christians trust Jesus for forgiveness and eternal life. They don’t “practice” a religion. They simply trust the Messiah for salvation.

      • truthoutnow

        Identifying someone as being un-Christian doesn’t make them the Anti-Christ. If it did, we would have about 6 billion anti-Christs, not that people of other faiths can’t abide by the universal Golden Rule of treating others as you would have them treat you, Christians don’t have an exclusive claim to that moral standard. And you must be smoking some whacky tobacci to perceive of the White House as The Temple of God; far from it considering all of what has happened there, instigating wars based on lies, sexual misconduct, and numerous other sins, greater or lesser.

  • truthoutnow

    Sooooo many whackos out there. The earliest “followers of the Way” understood and fully believed that the end times were near and in a socio/economic/political sense that may be true, considering what the Romans did to Israel in 70 C.E., and two thousand years later people are more convinced than ever. If you were buried in volcanic lava and ash or drowned by a tsunami or struck by lightning, wouldn’t you think the end of the world had come? The end of their world would certainly have come as we are all the centers of our own universes.

    Ron may have been a “preacher for 25 years” but that doesn’t mean he’s necessarily correct. Like many fundamentalists and their preachers, he’s just trying to scare people. How could Daniel possibly forecast anything about an anti-Christ (which words he never used) if Christ had not yet been alive and among us as a human? The last book of the “New Testament,” the Revelation of John, is nothing but a drug induced figment of the author’s imagination. I’m sick and tired of semi-literate folks scaring even less literate folks into believing this malarky.

    We all know how the “New Testament” became canon, don’t we? 1800 bishops, each with their own local spheres of influence and power, met in Nicea in 325 A.D./C.E. and decided what to include and what to exclude and they persecuted and perpetrated genocide against the followers of what are now referred to as gnostic sects of Believers who they felt were peddling threatening theologies which challenged their status quo.

      At one time, people assumed Ronald Reagan could, possibly, be the antiChrist because his names, Ronald Wilson Reagan all contained six letters.
      These type assumptions never hold water!!

    • Facebook User

      The Beast 666 is very easy to understand.
      No one could (in the past- it’s already happened) buy or sell unless he had the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. “This calls for wisdom: let him who has understanding reckon the number of the beast, for it is a human number, its number is six hundred and sixty-six”.
      NOTE: It doesn’t say 666 is a man – it says IT has a human number!!
      There were 10 Resolutions in total passed by the United Nations Security Council between August and October 1990 at the start of the Gulf War.
      The first, number 661, imposed a complete embargo on all imports from and exports to, Iraq and Kuwait, with minor exceptions for certain medical supplies.
      Resolution 666, passed on 13 September 1990, modified 661 to allow other trading, in particular, food and medical supplies for humanitarian reasons, because 1000’s of civilians, including children were dying of starvation and illness. Therefore it was certainly the case that “no one could buy or sell” at that time, in Iraq or Kuwait, unless they had the “number of the Beast” (666) on their trading documents.
      So the number of the beast is the number of a resolution made by the United Nations.
      The only discrepancy is that John says that they, (the traders) had to have the mark on their forehead or their right hand, but the mark was actually required on the trading documents.
      The mark 666 would have obviously been placed at the top, or on the right hand side of the documents, for maximum visibility and not on the forehead or right hand of the trader!
      A natural slip of the pen, in the process of making many copies over the centuries! But good news that this is yet another apparently frightening beast which has appeared, done what it had to do and disappeared into obscurity!
      It will definitely not be bothering us in “the Last Days” and causing us to have implants in our hands or in our heads!

    2000 years ago, you were warned, not to touch the fruit from the tree of knowledge, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , You didn’t listen.

    Among competing Hypotheses, the one with the fewest assumptions should be selected. (Ockam’s Razor)

    Wait until you see it, , , , , ,

    “Truth is Singular, the pursuit of truth is the search for an absolution, that remains infinite.”

    If it does nothing but consume and reproduce, what is it? A virus, a bacteria, and schizophrenic people, that think they’re intelligent. Let’s review the facts at hand, and then explain them throughout the “TIME”, you’ll spend reading it.

    A brief description of TIME, as it pertains to my mind, and this thesis.

    Oldest known cave paintings made by man, scientifically radio and carbon dated to approximately 40 000 years ago. The same science concludes, that there were less than half a billion people on the earth at that “TIME”. From the “TIME” of those cave paintings, until the year 1960, is how long it took human population to grow from less than half a billion, to 3 billion, a population growth of just 2.5 billion, over a “TIME”span of “40 000 years”, let me say that again, a population growth of 2.5 billion, over a “TIMEspan of “40 000 years” do you understand this number and “TIME”frame?

    However, from the year 1960, to this the year 2016, human population grew by almost double that, a population growth of 4.4 billion, over a “TIME”span of just “56 years”. Most people don’t understand these numbers, and how they apply to them, so. Human population growth in the last 24 hours, 200 000, that means, you the human race birth and build a city the size of Rochester New York, for EVERY 24 hour “TIME”span. Human population growth in the year 2015, “82 million”, that means you the human race birth and build a country the size of Germany, for every ONE year of “TIME”.

    7.412 Billion (current human population), if it grows at 1% per year, it doubles in 70 years, if it grows at 2% per year, it doubles in 35 years, if it grows at 3% per year, it doubles in 24 years. Anything that grows exponentially, grows in a predictable amount of TIME. “56 years” a population growth of 4.4 billion, talk about “Economic Growth”. Speaking of Economy, and Economic Growth, how does that all work, you figure? Supply and demand? Your country has what’s known as a GDP statistic, or (Gross Domestic Products) it’s a measure of your “Economic Growth”, and the “Stability” of your “Economy”. So, how do you continuously grow the demand for your country’s Gross Domestic Products? By exponentially increasing the population of other countries, to create the demand for it, that’s how.

    Therein lies the reason you birth and build a city the size of Rochester New York, for every 24 hour TIMEspan. If you don’t, your “Economy” will fail. So, it would appear, that you have to grow your populations exponentially, to maintain your quality and standard of life, or your economic stability. According to my math, and your Government, United Nations and IMF (International Monetary Fund), and the Federal Reserve Bank of the United States, you the human race, need at least 2.3% economic growth, to sustain your Global Economy.

    The Global Economy, isn’t just your jobs, it’s your Education System, your Health Care System, your Social Security System, your Justice System, your Army, Navy, Airforce, Marines, and the two most important things, your 19 trillion dollar debt, (plus interest), and your PENSION. So, if you grow your populations exponentially to sustain all these things, you end up with a war in Syria, that is a masquerade for a very real, very serious quagmire, that quagmire being, Economic Growth, is the leading cause of Global Warming, and Climate Change.

    Human population, is now growing faster than any virus or bacteria known to man, to sustain your economy, or, your quality and standard of life, it would be equivalent to you inhaling a single Ebola Virus, and that virus consumes and reproduces so fast, you’re dead in 55 seconds. Do you actually believe, the “Refugee Crisis” in Europe, is a result of a war in Syria? Considering 40% of the Refugees don’t come from Syria,,,, well, you figure it out. 7.412 billion, with a need to sustain 2.3% growth, equals 15 billion people on earth, by the year 2050. Or, human population will exceed the planet’s ability to sustain it, in the next 24-35 years, if you continue Economic Growth. It’s a quagmire, wrapped up in an ironic paradox of Karma, and there is nothing you can do to stop it, as, you’re out of TIME. ANYTHING, that grows EXPONENTIALLY, is UNSUSTAINABLE. Global Economic Failure, is IMMINENT.

      Yawn, Yawn… Too much useless information, boringly presented!
      Have you not been informed that Jesus is returning very soon now, otherwise, as he said, “if I hadn’t returned when I did, there would have been no life left on earth (or words to that effect!)
      He knows we are dangerously overcrowded and soon many will be moved to another world which is ready to be populated, just as Earth was 40,000 years ago.
      He told us 2000 years ago he would be moving us – remember? (“I go to prepare a place for you…..”)
      Do try to keep up!

        Show me the mathematical equation, that proves beyond a reasonable doubt (in any court or scientific method you so choose Pastor), that this planet has the natural ability to produce enough fresh water to grow and sustain 15 billion people, and still have enough fresh water and space left, for the horticultural and agricultural necessities to sustain it?

        • Facebook User

          I don’t see your point. I just said most of us are going to be moved to another planet. So why do I need to prove this planet can support 15 billion people.
          I agree with you. It can’t !

          • Derek Speed

            “I just said most of us are going to be moved to another planet” In a court of law Pastor, it doesn’t matter what you believe, only what you can prove, can you prove that statement in a court of law? That is ironically enough 1 Jesus and 12 disciples = 1 Judge and 12 jurors.

            Schizophrenia is a mental disorder often characterized by abnormal social behavior and failure to recognize what is real. Common symptoms include false beliefs, unclear or confused thinking, auditory hallucinations, reduced social engagement and emotional expression, and inactivity. Diagnosis is based on observed behavior and the person’s reported experiences. You have now become so dependant on hopes and dreams, that you cannot see the reality of things to come.

            A Gram-negative bacteria, almost impermeable to all antibiotics, this psychological disorder, is extremely hard to treat.How do you tell an intelligent person, their intelligence, isn’t intelligence, it’s schizophrenia.

            How to diagnose:

            Think of a number, between 1 and 10.

            Multiply it by 9.

            Take the double digit you now have, separate them, and add them together.

            Minus 5.

            Take the number you now have, and associate it, with its corresponding letter in the alphabet.

            ie: A, would be 1. B, would be 2. C, would be 3,etc.

            Take the letter you now have, and think of a country in Europe, that starts with that letter.

            Take the second letter in that country’s name, and think of an animal that starts with that letter.

            What colour is that animal?

            The grey elephant is a symbol of your schizophrenia, remember, crazy people, don’t know they’re crazy. What the eyes see, and the ears hear, the mind believes, an illusion, no matter how convincing, is still just an illusion. Controlled environments, don’t work, self sustaining ones do. Name one empire, in the history of manmade empires, that didn’t fail? 100% failure rate. What did they all have in common? The same thing religion, science and evolution have in common, they all require *Intelligence* to create and understand.

            This planet belongs to life and time, not your life in your time. Intelligent life, does not create a mathematical inevitability for itself, schizophrenics do.This is earth, not one biological life form in the history of biological life, ever had the right to exist, it earned it.We must, equally distribute risk, to all human beings on earth, you, have chosen to eliminate all risks to your existence, and in doing so, exponentially increased and compounded the risk 1000 fold, onto your own grandchildren.

            Remember Pastor, crazy people, don’t know they’re crazy, that being said, they don’t know when they’re being treated either.

  • “the biblical text never reveals the actual name of the person.”

    This is incorrect. There is a reference as to who the Antichrist was, and for this we have to look into some of the most ancient of Bibles.

    [Daniel 11:37-38] “Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all. 38 But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces, (Maozim): and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.”

    “But he shall worship the god Maozim in his place: and a god whom his fathers knew not, he shall worship with gold, and silver, and precious stones, and things of great price” (Daniel 11:38, The Douay-Rheims Catholic Bible). The ticket to finding the name of the god of the Antichrist has been etched from time immemorial by the prophet Daniel: “Maozim”, which will also reveal the religion of Antichrist as well: Islam. This Maozim, is in the The Douay-Rheims Bible (1609) which honored the Hebrew is the oldest full Roman Catholic Bible translation in English, making it older than the KJV. Now, anyone with the knowledge of semitic languages can see the obvious, Maozim is both a literal name and as in all semitic names, also has meaning (which the other translations state) also applies: “defense,” “fortress,” “fortresses,” “helmet,” “protection,” “refuge,” “safety,” “strength,” “strong,” “stronghold,” and “strongholds”.

    Anyone can easily plug into any search engine, “Allah Al-Mu’izz” and can see, not just that this is one of the names of Allah, but is also the same meaning which exactly matches the Hebrew Maozim.

    Allah is Maozim (Al-Mu’izz), as foretold in Daniel 11. For the Antichrist “honors a God of fortresses,” who is a God of war and the sword while his name, literally in Hebrew, Moazim, a semitic name, is also in the Arabic Al-Mu’izz (Allah Al-Mu’izz الله المعز) is one of the ninety nine official names of Allah in Islam and Maozim also has the exact meaning in the Arabic: “to be mighty, potent, strong, powerful …”

    Nathaniel West in his Daniel’s Great Prophecy, *118 years ago* (1898), gets it when he wrote;

    “Allah Maozim’ the god of fortresses or strongholds, placing here his confidence, whether in the strongholds of the Orontes, Nile, Euphrates, Tigris, or Bosphorus, — in Syria, Egypt, Macedonia, or Asia Minor, — (the parted empire of Alexander) — honoring “Allah” with “gold, silver, precious stones, and costly things, — a god unknown to his ancestors and whose religion he would propagate by the sword, procuring for his strongholds garrisons of people who acknowledged his strange god, increasing them with glory while putting to the sword all others, causing them to rule over the many, and because needing money for war, dividing the land he conquers, for the sake of gain.” This the meaning of this difficult verse. Such the three great characters of “the King”: The first was not seen in Antiochus to the extent here predicted. The second was seen, in his butchery of infants in Jerusalem, his treatment of the Maccabean mother and her sons, and his inhuman conduct everywhere. The third was seen in the confidence he placed in fortresses, and in the propagation of his religion by the sword. But yet, the full reality of all awaits the future and the final Antichrist.” (Nathaniel West, Daniel’s Great Prophecy, page 176, (1898)

    The Antichrist, according to West, is a man who stems from “Alexander’s Kingdom”. It is not Europe as some Protestant prejudices proclaimed. The issue of Antichrist should not divide, but unite us while we disagree on matters of theology. The Antichrist is one who establishes “strongholds of the Orontes, Nile, Euphrates, Tigris, or Bosphorus, — in Syria, Egypt, Macedonia, or Asia Minor” and is one who advances the glory of “Allah Maozim” or in Arabic, “Allah Al-Mu’izz”.

    It was Erdogan of Asia Minor, Turkey, who once said regarding his Jihad for Allah that the “helmet” being the domes of mosques honoring Allah the god of “bayonets”.

    The Bible warns its believers to beware and be cautious, and how to spot false prophets leading others to “strange” gods. Mohamed and Allah fit the warning signs *PERFECTLY*. Actually, some of the most damning evidence against Islam is revealed by the prophets of the Torah, the Old Testament. The prophet Daniel foresaw the advent of the Antichrist Mohamed in his prophesies. And he hit the nail right on the head within Daniel 11.

    There are many other clues that link the devil and his messenger with Allah and Mohamed.

    Another *REAL* prophet of *YHWH*, (Gods *REAL* name), Was Ezekiel;

    [Ezekiel 38:10-13] ‘On that day thoughts will come into your mind and you will devise an evil scheme. You will say, ‘I will invade a land of unwalled villages; I will attack a peaceful and unsuspecting people – all of them living without gates and bars. I will plunder and loot and turn my hand against the resettled ruins and the people gathered from the nations, rich in livestock and goods, living at the center of the land’

    Ezekiel 38:10-13 fits Mohamed *PERFECTLY*. There’s even a whole Surah in the Quran, Surah Al-Anfal (The Spoils of War). “They ask you (O Mohamed) about the spoils of war. (8:1) Say: “The spoils are for Allah and the Messenger.” So fear Allah and adjust all matters of difference among you, and obey Allah and His Messenger (Mohamed), if you are believers.

    *YHWH* warns us that the devil is called “Destroyer” (Rev 9:11). One of Allah’s 99 names is Al-Mumit – “Destroyer.”

    *YHWH* warns us that the devil will be “the king of the kingdom” (Rev 9:11). One of Allah’s 99 names is “Malik-Ul-Mulk” or “king of the kingdom.”

    *YHWH* warns us that the devil will claim: “I am, and there’s none besides me (Isa 47:8-10).” Allah makes this proclamation at least six times in the Qur’an.

    *YHWH* warns us that “perhaps you (the devil) will cause terror” (Isa 47:12). The devil says: “…I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve…” in the Qur’an 8:12.

    *YHWH* warns us that the false prophet will change the set times (Da 7:25). In his flight from Mecca (Sheba) to Medina (Dedan), Mohamed changed the calendar designation from 622 A.D. (the year of our Lord Jesus) to 1 A.H. (year of the Hijrah)

    *YHWH* warns us that the false prophet would subdue three kings before him (Da 7:24). In Ezekiel 38:10-13, the false prophet subdues Sheba, Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish. Mohamed conquered (in order) the merchants of the Mediterranean (Tarshish), Medina (Dedan), and Mecca (Sheba).

    *YHWH* warns us that the false prophet will change the laws (of God) in Daniel 7:25. In the Qur’an and its supporting hadith, Mohamed changes the laws of God to the laws of Allah, (shariah),

    *YHWH* warns us that the false prophet will benefit by “false miracles or signs” (Rev 13:13; 2Th 2:9). The verses in the Qur’an are called “ayahs” or “miraculous signs.”

    *YHWH* warns us that the devil will set himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God (2Th 2:4). Allah sits within a wing of the temple (grounds) in the Dome of the Rock and the al-Aqsa mosque, proclaiming himself to be God.

    *YHWH* warned us through the prophet John, in Revelation, that the false prophet was identifiable by the three symbols: Chi-Xi-Stigma. These three symbols, arranged as a puzzle are representative of Mohamed’s mark or Arabic description which reflect the Arabic, “Bismillah”, (In the name of Allah), is the 666 or the devil. There is no translation necessary, the pieces are self-descript next to the Arabic depiction of Mohamed-Rasul-Allah.

    And we can see in Revelation the link between Islam and Christianity;

    *Revelation 19:20* “And the beast was captured, and with it the *FALSE PROPHET* (Mohamed), who in its presence had done the signs, (Quran), by which he deceived those, (Moslems), who had received the mark of the beast, (Bismillah) and those who worshiped its image, (Crescent Moon, Black Stone). These two were thrown alive into the lake of fire that burns with sulfur.”

    *Revelation 20:10* “And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the *FALSE PROPHET* are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.”

    *Revelation 20:4* And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: *and I saw the souls of them that were *BEHEADED* for the witness of Jesus*, and for the *Word of God*, and which had *not* worshiped the beast, neither his image, neither had received *his mark* upon their *foreheads*, or *in their hands*; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

    Who else beheads Christians for their faith? Yep, Mohamed and *ISLAM.*

    eagle was the symbol of the Roman empire. many have made wondered whether the RCC will be the ‘priest’ in the antichrist’s mockery of Christ’ Prophet Priest and King. the lion is connected with England, and the city of London (which is In britain’s borders but a jurisdiction unto itself, much like the vatican) is the financial capital of the world, and now with a muslim mayor. interesting because mohammed may be the false prophet, the overwhelming rise of Islam obvious to all.
    but in all these things, while we are told to study scripture and be as wise as serpents (but gentle as doves) should not distract us from our ambassador mission- to tell the lost that salvation has come.

    You and I are obviously reading a different Bible! The word “Maozim” does not appear in any of the Translations I have ever read or referred to! And you have inserted a whole sentence into Daniel which says “But he shall worship the god Maozim in his place:” I don’t see that anywhere!!
    You mention The Douay-Rheims Catholic Bible. If the quotes you mention appear only (as you say) in this edition and not in the dozens of other translations, I would have to say that this translation should not be given too much credence.
    Your assertions are therefore based on flimsy assertions and your identification of the so-called antichrist is hopelessly wrong.
    Following the APOSTACY spoken of in Thessalonians and which happened recently, the antichrist is identified, without any question, as the person who had an altercation with pope Francis and that is Donald Trump.
    Read the description of the antichrist and think about it!

  • Donald Trump is clearly the Antichrist. He fits perfectly for the arrogant little horn who speaks blasphemies. He fits perfectly with the man of lawlessness or the man of sin from 2 Thessalonians. He fits perfectly with the Beast in Revelation 13 (and frankly, many of the Evangelical leaders, or Evangelical Christianity seem to be willing to play the part of the second Beast who is the false prophet that supports the first Beast). Plus, as is stated in a comment below, the personal name of the antichrist means “defense,” “fortress,” “fortresses,” “helmet,” “protection,” “refuge,” “safety,” “strength,” “strong,” “stronghold,” and “strongholds”. Could it also mean “Trump” which is to outrank or have power over? Also, Trump means the sound of a trumpet and the sound of a trumpet blast is to arrive before the end.

    • Alan Peters

      You start very well when you say:
      “Donald Trump is clearly the Antichrist. He fits perfectly for the arrogant little horn who speaks blasphemies. He fits perfectly with the man of lawlessness or the man of sin from 2 Thessalonians.”
      From there on, you descend into pure speculation and frankly, absolute nonsense. What has the “man of Lawlessness” got to do with the Beast with 7 Heads?
      Where does it say the latter is anything to do with the antichrist? Absolute nonsense!

        Not only is he amoral, but he aligns himself with a godless man and country. Russia is communist/does not believe in GOD.

        • Russia is post communist. The Communist Party of Russia gets about 10% of the vote. Although Putin was a former KGB agent and rules with a rod of Iron, he does so to keep power. He has not renationalised the dominant means of production nor has he reintroduced central planning for the dominant commodities produced in Russia. Most of the means of production are in private hands and the dominant resource allocation mechanism is market based (though very many markets are oligopolies).

      Donald Trump is the Anti-Christ! Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb and he spoke as a dragon. He exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence. And he makes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound was healed.… Ronald (6) Wilson (6) Reagan (6) was the first Beast who survived a gunshot wound. The Biblical account goes on to say that the second Beast will build a statue of the first Beast and give it the power of speech. So when Donald (6) Johann (6) Drumpf (6) builds the talking Reagan statue, that will be the final confirmation of his diabolical identity

      Father Mojo, you are against God if you think God’s anointed is the Antichrist.

    I am not at all sure 2 Thessalonians 2 has anything to do with the antichrist. Paul is writing after someone has clearly tried to persuade the Thessalonians that he (or some other leader) is the second coming.
    I am struggling away with online dictionaries and a basic grammar, but “that day will not come” is an insertion added in the English not in the original Greek, and Greek apparently uses the same word for “and” and “then”. If this is the case the passage should read:
    “3. Let no man deceive you by any means for, except there comes falling away first (i.e. the Thessalonians are seduced), then that lawless man will be revealed the son of (i.e. as belonging to) destruction,
    4 Who opposes and raises himself above every so-called God or object of worship so that he might be sat in the temple of God and declare himself to be God.”

      Everything the author wrote is bunk. The entire concept of the Anti-christ is taken from mashing together very different verses and concepts. It’s classic proof-texting.

      This is a doctrine called dispensationalism. I was raised on it, and frankly its embarrassing that Evangelicals believe it. It’s a relatively new idea, it only really gained in popularity in the early 20th Century.

      • Iain Lovejoy

        Yes well, I am inclined to give a pass on end times stuff on Daniel and Revelation, mainly because Revelation cribs from Daniel (as I understand it) and both are so heavily allegorical they could mean anything, and also because I can’t follow either. The Thessalonians passage I could work out, however.

    This whole article is Mentally unhealthy and profoundly the wrong way to read the bible but it certainly is “normal”. The text is not a comic book.

  • kzarley

    I am writing a book on the Antichrist. (See Kermit Zarley Blog here at patheos.com.) Bible versions translate 2 Thes 2.4 as you have it, “showing himself that he is God.” However, the Greek text has an anarthrous theos, meaning its word for god/God does not have the definite article. When that happens, theos can mean “a god” rather than “God.” And I think it should be translated here “a god.”

    Another reason is that in 2 Thes 2.2-4, Paul alludes to two texts in Daniel. Paul’s explanation that the “falling away” will happen first and then “the man of sin is revealed” refers to Daniel 8.23, “when the transgressions have reached their full measure, a king of bold countenance shall arise” (NRSV), referring to the Antichrist. And Paul saying the Antichrist will be “showing himself that he is God [should be “a god”] probably refers to Daniel 11.36-38. Therein, the angel says of the Antichrist, “the king … [will] consider himself greater than any god.” But this king will not think he is Daniel’s God, for the text next says he “shall speak horrendous things against the God of gods,” with “God” referring to Daniel’s God.

    This is echoed in the book of Revelation. It says “the beast,” referring to the Antichrist, “opened its mouth to utter blasphemies against God, blaspheming his name and his dwelling, that is those dwell in heaven” (Revelation 13.5-6), which latter refers to God’s angels.

    Krauszer is right that “the biblical text never reveals the actual name of the person,” meaning the Antichrist. But it does say something very interesting about his name that perhaps most Americans know about, regardless of whether they are Christian: “no one can buy or sell who does not have the mark, that is, the name of the beast [Antichrist] or the number of its name…. for it is the number of a person. Its number is six hundred sixty six.”

          37 “He will show no regard for the gods of his fathers or for the desire of women, nor will he show regard for any other god; for he will magnify himself above them all”.
          Please indicate where it says this person is the antichrist. It doesn’t mention either his name or call him the antichrist!
          Please explain it to me!

          • Pansy Blackwell

            First of all. Read the KJV of Daniel 1137. “He will show no regard for the {G] OD of his fathers which means Christian God.
            In other chapters preceding Daniel 11 the person mentioned is referred to as the King of the North. The locale of the Son of Perdition.

          • Facebook User

            Nothing you have said indentifies Trump as the antichrist.
            So he’s the King of the North and the son of perdition and he has no regard for women nor for the God of his father. Where does that say he is the antichrist? Lots of people qualify on these scores.

          • B.O.

            If it says that he will magnify himself above all gods then that means he sets himself up as THE God. Only Jesus can do that so this would make this guy antichrist, one who denies Jesus has come in the flesh as Messiah and claims that title for himself.

    From a Jewish perspective (not intended to offend), you must realize that there is a general belief that Jesus was Satan incarnate (aka the evil one if there is such a thing) and assuming that everything Satan says was (is) a lie, the anti-christ is really going to be the anti-satan and thus the actual messiah being expected to solve the world’s problems and take us into the new millennium. This of course can only occur after defeating the world’s evil forces (world religions responsible for centuries of death and destruction – Christianity and Muslimism).

    If a relationship might ever come to develop between the messiah and Judaism, it would be because Judaism is not actually a religion but rather a practice of faithful habits grounded in doing what is actually best for human beings in order to preserve law, order and sanity.

    Trump might be the one-and-only. Let’s sit back and watch what happens in the coming times. If he manages to miraculously solve the U.S. problems as surely as he was miraculously elected, that would most likely amaze the world. But if the messiah survives a mortal wound, then he can’t be killed – that is the true test of the messiah or one who is “of God”. That is the test that Jesus failed.

The evil inclination is also identified with misdirected good, or uncontrolled passion. Jesus is actually ignored pretty much in Jewish thought, and perhaps a bit unfairly blamed for a religion that he did not create which murdered more Jews and persecuted Jews more severely than any other religion. Funny he never seemed to be aware of these things during his lifetime, at least according to the way the narrative rolls.

    I agree that Donald Trump could be the Antichrist but believe we should be very careful when using the prophetic scriptures to “predict” rather than using them as they were intended to be used. Lots of characteristics fit for Trump but historically, prophetic scripture fit other leaders as well – just not as well. Another interesting tie-in is Kushner. Kushner is Trump’s son-in-law (and yes, ironically, the owner of 666 Fifth Avenue in New York City) and comes from a family involved in some pretty dark crimes (and convicted with prison terms). I’m surprised others have not pegged him as Little Horn.

    I wrote an article (http://bibleblender.com/2016/biblical-lessons/modern-day-lessons/donald-trump-Antichrist-pray-thank-god-for-lessons-learned) that discusses this in more detail including the dangers of misusing prophetic scripture. I’ll continue updating as more details roll in over time.

  • dbeachey

    Reagan had a mortal wound tnat healed, maybe it was him. If you are honest you have to note that only Thessalonoans even says ANYTHING about anti-Christ and there Paul seems to be talking about ANYONE who denies Christ. The other passages talk about beasts and dragons that most likely refer to someone or some nation the writer wanted to speak of in a veiled way from his own time–not someone 2,000 years in the future.
    When you read the Bible as a giant jigsaw puzzle with a piece from here and another from here and then try to make it all fit some framework that someone invented you come up with any number of ideas/cults, because the puzzle pieces can be reconfigured in a thousand ways. Maybe like today all these different writers from different times and places actually had different ideas and it doesn’t all fit into a single unified vision–except for the admonition to remain faithful even in difficult times.

      Donald Trump is the Anti-Christ! Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb and he spoke as a dragon. He exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence. And he makes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound was healed.… Ronald (6) Wilson (6) Reagan (6) was the first Beast who survived a gunshot wound. The Biblical account goes on to say that the second Beast will build a statue of the first Beast and give it the power of speech. So when Donald (6) Johann (6) Drumpf (6) builds the talking Reagan statue, that will be the final confirmation of his diabolical identity

  • The election is over, sort of. The bigots, white supremacists and easily mislead are gloating over the win by one of the most evil and immoral leaders since Hitler, but the truth is the only people who won are Putin, Trump and Satan. They are deliriously dancing on the death of American democracy and amazed that so many Christians sold their soul and salvation to the devil Trump, who was in contact with Putin through the whole election.
    While the Democrats were trying to win this election legally, Putin was hacking into and stealing information from Clinton’s campaign and the DNC. Documents that were private and not for public consumption, making something out of literally nothing, while the Democrats didn’t hack into Donald Trump’s e-mails, or the court ordered documents, he already destroyed. We couldn’t even see his taxes, and we now know why. Pay for play conflicts of interest, all over the place; gifts for himself, money to pay off judges and bills with his foundation, which was not even a legal foundation, and best of all, while American are under tremendous pressure to pay taxes every year, Donald doesn’t pay anything.

    We are now looking at a recount in three states, where there appears to have been some manipulation of people’s vote. When a candidate can’t win the electoral vote, but loses the popular vote by 2 million votes, it is quite apparent that every individual’s vote does not count, then something is dramatically wrong and underhanded. If Putin can hack his way into getting the President he wants in office, by hacking private e-mails, why not hack the election itself, especially if it is close in those states.

    Now, that he is President-elect, he had a chance to prove he wasn’t a bigot or Nazi sympathizer by appointing honorable, intelligent leaders from both sides, but his first choice for Chief Strategist is Steve Bannon, a man who pushes white supremacy and hate of Jews in his Breitbart outlet. The rest are loyal yes men, who will sell their soul to the devil Trump for the glory, much like Hitler’s band of scary yes men, void of conscience.
    That Christian support won this man the White House is very disturbing.

    This is who our children will look up to for the next four years, as President and First Lady. A man who is a bully, liar, bigot, blasphemer, abuser of women and a Nazi sympathizer. A woman, who came here illegally, made money doing porn, stole Michelle Obama’s speech, wants to stop bullying on the Internet, when she needs to just stop her despicable bully, under control and is too good to live in our White House.
    So, gloat and rejoice, you who blindly traded the Presidency for the promise of no more abortions and getting rid of gay marriage and riches beyond your wildest imagination. Rejoice in your fake victory.

    Because it’s not a person. Antichrist are those that are against Christ. Those passages explain that in the end times people will turn away from the teachings and become men of sin. This idea that there will be an Antichrist as a person is a total misunderstanding. Today’s Israel can be consider Antichrist because they are founded on the idea that Christ was no Messiah. Hence – AntiChrist

  • Abel Worker

    Daniel does not refer to the antichrist. There is no Christ in the old testament and Daniel lived in the 5th century BC. It is made very clear the things Daniel is predicting is coming very soon, people alive during Daniel’s prophesizing will be around to experience it and must prepare. The man Daniel prophesizes about visits in him in a dream and is wearing bronze armor. He says that Babylon will hold out against his siege for 120 days. From the time of Daniels passing, 10 kings will rise in Macedonia. The eleventh would be Alexander the great. Alexander the Great would have worn bronze armor and would end up sieging Babylon for 120 days. Alexander brought down the three kingdoms of Sparta, Athens, and Thermopolae after invading Egypt, because they conspired to kill his father Philip. After uniting Greece, Alexander then moved East against Persia. He took the Greek colonies in Turkey, moved south on Phoenisia, took down their main city of Tyrus, sinking its’ coastal wall into the sea, invaded Judea, heard the rumors of the locals that he was the prophsized son of God, went to Lybia to consult an oracle who confirmed he was the son of Zeus(the believed chief god of the Greeks at the time,) conquered Ethiopia, before heading back up to take on the Persians. All this is very well documented history and fits in well with Daniel’s prophesy of it happening in the not too distant future(about 60 years after Daniel’s passing.) Now I heard about an object appearing in Daniel that wasn’t invented yet until nearly six hundred years after Daniel passed away. If it’s true, then Alexander would have been ancient history by that time which would explain the very neatness which everything fits. But it also calls into question whether Daniel prophesized it at all or was it made up to validate his status as a prophet. In either event, the fact that so few people make the connection of Alexander to Daniel’s prophesy shows that it wasn’t too successful over time. Remember, of this man who the following books say would lay waste to cities, cover the streets in so much blood, soldiers would be slipping on it, Take on the king of the south, was to die by no man’s hand. It was malaria that took out Alexander. His kingdom ends up being split into four kingdoms, further following the prophesy. I am still torn if the man in Daniel’s prophesy was the antichrist, or if someone else was being prophesized. If it was meant to be the same person, it would question the positioning of revelations and suggest some rewriting of the book may have occured to justify it’s being moved into the new testament. If placed right after Malachi, Alexander fits nicely into the events of Revelations and things certainly make more sense than to try and fit Jesus into it. I believe the rewriting of Revelations and its’ being moved into the new testament is the biggest conspiracy of all time.

    Not true, i would like to talk to the author of the article to see how he possibly get the “ANTICHRIST” in Daniel – Thessalonians- and Revelation because the TRUTH is the antichrist is not what they make him out to be and they could be just trying to promote books thats sound cool. Truth is the apostle John is the ONLY to use this word and if you read the Bible you will learn the truth or you can follow man and no telling where he will take you. the antichist is used 5 times in 1 John & 2 John. The Bible says that there are MANY antichrists unlike these false teachers who claim there is one man coming in the future; but funny (not so) how John says regarding the antichrist, “which you heard was coming AND IS IN THE WORLD ALREADY (1 John 4:3) John also says there are MANY antichrists “many antichrist have come” (1 John 2:18). and John goes on to tell us WHO THE ANTICHRIST IS so we do not have to guess… 1 John 2:22 “who is the liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? THIS IS THE ANTICHRIST… the context is about people like Cerinthus or Nicolas of the Nicolaitan’s as well as the Gnosics which all denied Jesus could dwell in the flesh because in their mind God could dwell in evil flesh, but sin is what makes flesh evil… so John is just warning the Christians about people who deny Christ and thus calls them.. ANTI (Against) Christ. Simple study but these false teachers listen to men instead of the Bible and they want to say its Hitler, Obama, Hillary… what good would it be for John to warn Christians about Barack Obama???or anyone else thousands of years away???? questions ? email bibleauthority777@yahoo.com

    we need to stop these elaborate stories and false teaching cause all we do is create atheists and non believers but the Bible is simple and plain about teaching of the antichrist.

  • Simply, religion IS anti-messiah!

    Except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27…….

    “Come out from among them and be separate”!

    For The Faithful ARE Family! (Ephesians 3:15, Galatians 6:10)

    HalleluYAH!

    Your Question. What point in the bible are we at today?

    My Answer.

    Revelation 13:3 “And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast.”

    I’m sure someone reading this has heard about it. Let’s just say. Chapter 13.

  • “Religion” was, and IS yet needful for “disobedient and gain-saying(contradicting and opposing GOD) people”, who would “rather have a man than GOD, speak to and rule over them”! (Romans 10:21, Acts 7:51, Exodus 20:19, I Samuel 8:4-22)

    And history has revealed, and continues to reveal, that multiplied BILLIONS have been killed or en-slaved(in physical chains at times, yet primarily in the chains of strong delusion that are the commandments and doctrines of men) in the name of the god(s) of this, or that religion! (II Thessalonians 2:10-13)

    Proving the fruit of death and enslavement are bore of religion’s way, for life is but a pawn in the wicked game they play!

    Come out from among them and be separate!” (II Corinthians 6:17)
    ALL religion……. (Except the Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27)

    Yes! religions that preach pacifism (aka: non-resistance) as well, for their chains of “strong delusion” are stronger still! II Thessalonians 2:10-13)

    However, because of pagan catholicism and her harlot christian daughters , “The Way of TRUTH is evil spoken”……. Such IS damnable indeed and TRUTH! (II Peter 2:1-3)

    And YES! atheism is a religion as well, a religion of self (“I”,ego,id,pride) worship! So it is that atheists see their version of a ‘god’ each and every time they view their reflected “image”…….

    TRUTH IS! The Faithful will not create a religion for “The Faithful ARE Family”, “The Family of Our FATHER and GOD”, “of WHOM the whole Family in Heaven and ON EARTH is named”! (Ephesians 3:15)

    “A Household of Faith” indeed and TRUTH! (Galatians 6:10, Ephesians 2:19)

    HalleluYAH!

    In no way am I judging Trump or Putin, for it could be someone else, for Jesus said in Matthew 24 that when Israel becomes a nation as it did, the 120 countdown clock started, for he said that this would be the last generation, no matter who comes before or after. I only say that, Trump and Putin, seems very interesting subjects. We are currently at the 69 year countdown clock and still have another 50 or so years to go. I’m keeping my eye on Jerusalem and when the U.S Embassy, or someone else’s embassy’s moves to Jerusalem. Now in Revelation 9:20-21, is where we may be or already tipping into Chapter 10, the mystery of the 7 Thunders, what ever they may be. In chapter 11, the 3rd temple has just been rebuilt and animal sacrifice has been started up, for the 2 witnesses have arrived for the next 3.5 years.

    Why are ANY verses about an “antichrist” “important”–given that there’s no reason to “believe in” such a creature?

  • Aaron Reyes

    Maybe its the Islams? Muslims? Isis and all will force us to convert to there religion? Maybe? Just an opinion though..

  • Johan

    Its Narendra Modi Indian PM and the upcoming world religion is Yoga

  • zahir omar

    Antichrist must be Christians or ex-Christians. He can be Muslim or Hindus or Jews or other than Christians.

    Why???

    The Bible says so!!!

  • BenV

    Antichrist is not one person but all who don’t accept Jesus as God’s Son.

  • Robert R

    MAYBE MACRON FILLS THE BILL. SAUVE,NOT AFRAID TO BE SEEN ON THE WORLD SCENE,SOMEWHAT CHARISMATIC, CLEAN CUT ETC.

  • David Swan

    I reckon it’s trump.

    I watched an video where they stopped him on the street during his campaign and he mentioned when he was younger he thought he was the one true God. He said he truly believed it. He never said he was cured or doesn’t anymore. Now look at his jerusalem move.

    He is full of lies and deceit. It seems to be all he knows.

    The 3 kingdoms could be China, Russia, North Korea.

    I’m probably wrong but this guy is nuts, and in power, and makes me uneasy either way.

  • i am believing it is a good thing that trump was elected, for it
    could be there would be those souls who would finally, not just
    read, but REALize that “The WHOLE world(not just a portion)
    IS under the control of the evil one”! (I John 5:19; 2:15-17)

    So IT IS “Whoever would be a friend of this world IS the enemy
    of GOD”! (James 4:4)

    And how could it be otherwise?

    For “GOD sent HIS Only Begotten Son to save the world” and
    what did those of this world and religion’s way do?

    They crucified The Messiah!

    So heed The Call to:

    “Come out of her(babel/’con’fusion/babylonworldreligion), MY people”!

    FATHER Help!

    HE DID! and HE does…….

    HalleluYAH!

  • Ben

    I appreciate this post and how it explains the different verses that address the Antichrist. My understanding and belief of the end times is that as a born again believer of Jesus as the Christ who saved me, I will be in heaven fellowshipping with Him (Jesus) before the Antichrist (whoever he is) is on the scene.

  • Alexander James Eggert.

    May I add something to your endless chater but maybe we shall wait and see who it is when the day comes.

  • Alexander James Eggert.

    Can all of you shut the fuck up about this stuff stupid human scums why don’t you worthless peace of crap just go to heaven if you want to just stay away from me with that talk about a God that does nothing for us.

    • Jack Wellman

      Nope…cannnot stay silent anymore than you can my friend.

  • TRUTH IS! “The WHOLE world(not just a portion) IS under the control of the evil one”! (I John 5:19)

    And “Whoever would be a friend of this world IS the enemy of GOD”! (James 4:4)

    “Come out from among them and be separate”! (II Corinthians 6:17)

    Thankfully the brethren of The Messiah have REALized that our citizenship(Life)” IS NOW in Heaven”! (Philippians 3:20)

    And soon, and very soon, we will be taken Home, Home at last!

    HalleluYAH!

  • Robin Kawalski

    Hey….. FYI . . Did you KNOW that Islam… Judaism, and Christianity ALL WORSHIP THE SAME GOD??? The God of Abraham?

  • JoanOfArcsGhost

    Look no further…Trump is sitting in the Oval Office and you all fell for it. Have fun burning in Hell.

  • Kerry Wallace

    And here we are. The antichrist finally comes to earth and you evangelicals vote for him.

  • D Kidd

    Every human being will be disappointed when they die.

  • The world was, is, and until time is no more, always will be ‘d’evil’s playground!

    So it is the children of The ONE and Only TRUE GOD and FATHER of ALL(Messiah inclusive)
    want as little as possible to do with that which is of ‘d’evil world!

    And we evermore REALize why IT IS that “whoever would be a friend of this world IS the enemy
    of Our FATHER and GOD”!

    For “Our FATHER, HE sent HIS Only Begotten Son into the world so that the world might be saved”,
    yet what did those of this world and/or religion’s way do?

    They crucified The Messiah!

    Yet Thankfully that which IS of The TRUTH Will Always RISE AGAIN!

    So it is that the “Born Again” children of Our FATHER and GOD seek and desire evermore of that
    which is of The TRUTH above all else! Most certainly more than our natural temporal life as well!

    For we are but aliens and pilgrims while on the earth, indeed and TRUTH!

    Suffering long as we abide in our earthly temple!

    Evermore sounding and resounding a Declaration of Dependence!

    FATHER Help!

    HE DID! and HE Does…….

    HalleluYAH!
