(OPINION) ETH – One Bible scholar is warning that there will be several signs to indicate the imminent arrival of the Antichrist of the Bible and the return of the Lord according to Express. The Bible indicates that the Antichrist will appear in the time of the end to declare himself the Messiah that is long-awaited.
The Antichrist will attempt to raise up his own Kingdom and seat himself as “God” himself in the temple in Jerusalem before the Second Coming of Jesus Christ out of heaven. The Bible is filled with warnings of the Antichrist’s arrival throughout the New Testament, including the Epistles of John. One example of this is found in 1 John 2:22, where the Bible identifies the Antichrist as a liar who has denies Jesus Christ’s divinity.
A false Christ is also mentioned in the Gospel of Matthew, where Jesus warns his disciples not to fall prey to false prophets. Jesus warned: “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.” Tom Meyer, a professor at Shasta Bible College & Graduate School in California, has told Express.co.uk that there will be a sequence of events from Antichrist’s arrival that will clash with the returned Christ.
Meyer stated: “Even in the first century many Christians were shaken out of their wits and disturbed with the signs of the times. “It is possible that false teachings and the intensity of the church’s persecution by Rome made some think that the end times had begun. “Perhaps a false prophecy to this effect was circulating in the churches, much in the same way that we today hear again and again that we belong to the terminal generation.
“Concerning their distress, the Apostle Paul thought it would be helpful to tell the early church in Thessalonica and, by application, the world today the sequence of events leading up to the Second Coming of Christ.” According to the Apostle Paul, the first event will be an apostasy. Professor Meyer points out that the Greek word “apostasia” can mean defection or revolt, but can also be interpreted as a departure or disappearance.
He goes on to elaborate that the first English translations of the Bible also interpret the word as either a “departure or disappearance’. However, The Apostle Paul did not specify what this disappearance entails. Professor Meyer went on further to say: “Most Christians think it means departing from the cardinal doctrines of the Christian faith, but it probably means a departure of the church itself. “The church ‘departing’ or being Raptured is the first event.” according to Meyer.
The second prophesied event will be the revealing of the Antichrist which will entail the Antichrist mirroring or mocking the coming of Jesus Christ the true Messiah. The third event, according to Professor Meyer, will be opposition towards the God of Israel.
“After his false revelation as the ‘true Christ’, the Antichrist will elevate himself about the living and true God. “The fourth event is in the yet-to-be-constructed third JewishTemple; the Antichrist will ‘continually display himself’ as the real Messiah in Jerusalem. “The fifth event is ‘the mystery of iniquity’. “Though it cannot be fully understood even in Paul’s time, its beginnings could be seen.”
Professor Meyer stated that this mystery will likely be some form of a satanic counterpart to the mystery of God’s purpose, Although it might be working under the surface at present, the Bible expert believes it will find its embodiment in the Antichrist once the time for its revelation comes. Professor Meyer then gave his final event “The final and sixth event is that the true Christ will be revealed from heaven and the bright light of His coming will consume the Antichrist.”
False Prophet of Revelation 13 = pope francis.
Anti-christ is Obama. Pay attention.
~Eph. 6:12 kjv.
My Rabbi, an attorney, a man paid by the word, who is a believer in Yeshua told me that he believes we will see more of what has happened and Dr. Tom Horn who is a prolific writer and prophecy teacher had a dream….I hope you will find the time to watch this video.
All wrong, people should read the Bible carefully and stop believing all these false doctrines hat keep them asleep waiting for something that won’t happen as they expected.
1John 2:18 King James Bible
Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
This story is a complete fabrication by a fool who has simply failed to read ALL of God’s Word. There is not a single mention of ANTICHRIST anywhere in the entire book of Revelation, and for a very good reason – ANTICHRIST HAS ALREADY COME!
1 John 4:3
and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming, and is already in the world at this time.
2 John 1:7
For many deceivers have gone out into the world, refusing to confess the coming of Jesus Christ in the flesh. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist.
You have 3 witnesses from the Word of God that clearly demonstrates that the author of this “coming antichrist’ story is a fool who is not being led by the Spirit of truth!
The antichrist is here, his name is Trump
I don’t know if you are a troll or simply misguided, but you could not be more wrong. Did you know President Trump has made destroying child sex trafficking (aka satanic pedophilia) his number one top priority? He’s already destroyed countless miles of underground bunkers/tunnels used for such filth. Once you learn the truth about this sick and phony world, you cannot unlearn. Then everything falls into place. I will pray that you are awakened.
Baloney. We are in the birth pains and the spirit of antichrist is alive and well but the person is not here yet. All the [real] prophets are saying make long term plans for our lives.
