(77) The Anti-Christ, Part 2

Who is he?  Ask some people of history and they will say Nero, Napoleon, Hitler, Stalin or someone else who destroyed their world.  Ask more modern people like democrats they will say Ronald Reagan or GW Bush.  Republicans will say Clinton (Bill) or Obama.  Some will even say things like the Pope or Prince Charles.  Dr David Jeremiah says it the best.  He tells of a story that he has in his library a collection of all the people who have been considered or even accused of being the anti-Christ.  When he got done reading the list he compiled he was relieved his name did not make the list.  The point is we really won't know who this person is until half the world is gone and it is too later.  The half that will remain will be deceived and will never believe the person could be satan incarnate until they have made the ultimate wrong commitment.
 
The Bible says or at least hints at:
  • a leader who rises up and becomes a world leader (Daniel 7:24-25,11:39-44)
  • miracle performer (2 Thess. 2:9)
  • will deceive the world (2 John 2:7, 1 John 2:22)
  • will get rid of religion so he can be worshiped (Daniel 7:25,9:27,11:36-37; Matt 24:15; Rev 13:5-8)
  • will have a false prophet go before him (Matth 24:21-28)
  • will come back from a fatal head wound (Rev 13:3, 17:8)
  • pretends to be a man of peace and prosperity (Daniel 9:27, Matt 24:15)
  • rules for 7 years, 3 1/2 of peace, 3 1/2 of war (Daniel 7:25, 9:27; Rev 13:7)
The Bible also tells us signs of the time
  • wars and rumors of wars (Matt 24:6)
  • earth will go through pangs (Matt 24:7-8; Luke 21:25-27)
  • people will be lovers of their own selves (2 Tim 3:1-4)
  • people will be disobedient (2 Tim 3:1-4)
  • people will listen to lies and not the truth (Matt 24:9-12)
  • economic prosperity then economic hardships (James 5:1-3; Rev 6:6)
Where in any writings, "scriptures", legends, myths, or anything of the sort can be so clear and connected?  This will happen.  These writings of the Bible are spread out 600 years apart yet still connect a perfect story that will become reality.  The only question remains is when?  No one knows that answer or will know the answer.  All we need to do is look for the seasons and signs given to us and be prepared at anytime.
