Antichrist Revelation, 7/5/16

Right now we are seeing biblical prophecy revealed at an incredible rate and with startling and terrifying reality.  We are rapidly approaching the time for the biblical one world leader, the Antichrist/Beast, The Man of Sin/Son of Perdition,   to introduce himself onto the world scene.  How do we know this? Because the Great Falling Away prophesied in scripture is rapidly gaining momentum.  Scripture says:

2 Thessalonians 2:1-4 New King James Version (NKJV)
The Great Apostasy
2 Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, 2 not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. 3 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, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

So we see that the falling away from the faith of those who once belonged to it is a precursor to the arrival of the Antichrist.  This Falling Away is happening all around us at an alarming rate.  This pope, Francis is the man that the bible calls The False Prophet, the main partner in crime with the Beast/Antichrist):

Revelation 16:13
And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

Revelation 19:20
Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone.

This pope, the False Prophet, is rapidly drawing believers who once worshiped the real Jesus into following him in his plan for a false, one world religion.  Several prominent ministries that have borne real fruit for the Kingdom of God in the past have fallen under the spell of the pope and are beginning to move with him is what he is doing.  Sadly, I believe it is necessary that I name these ministries because we need to break any association with them and be careful not to agree with them in any way unless they repent of agreeing with the pope.

Kenneth Copeland, James Robison, John Arnot, Mike Bickle, Che Ahn, Hillsong and Bethel are all big well known ministries that have agreed, at least in part, with the pope and have yet to repent for it. So until they do we have no choice but to classify them as "apostate" and understand that they are a part of the Falling Away until, hopefully, they repent.  This is a tragic and painful loss for the Body of Christ and I imagine there will be others, God have mercy!!

But we know from the 2 Thess. 2 passage above that this falling away precedes the revelation of the "man of sin," a.k.a. the Beast, the Antichrist.  The scripture is not specific as to exactly how long it is between the falling away and the arrival of the Beast but I believe it can be no more than a few years.  The prophet Terry Bennett was shown a vision of this pope declaring a man to be God in 2022. That means that 2022 is the latest possible year that the Beast could appear since the man calling himself God is obviously the Antichrist according to the passage at the top here.   It is reasonable to expect that the revelation of the Beast comes at sometime before the 2022 scene that the prophet was shown and that there will be a period beforehand in which his fame and favor from men will grow.  That would mean he will appear within the next few years, possibly even sooner.

So we are in increasingly serious times and we are watching men and women who once belonged to the household of faith shipwreck their salvations and allow the pope/false prophet to deceive them.  If God allows them to live and they continue down this road they are on they could wind up taking the mark of the Beast and forever losing their salvations.   May God have mercy on them and on us all in these dark times. God has warned us of these things both in the scriptures and through his many prophets since the bible was written, so we are without excuse.

So, please take seriously the question of whether you know God and are walking in adequate obedience to him because the question of your eternal destiny is paramount and you must not play with it and make yourself vulnerable to going to hell as these falling away brothers may do(we hope and pray not!).  If you do not know God then please pray this A Prayer To Receive Eternal Salvation today and be saved.  If you know him but need to go deeper in him then please pray this Prayer Of Consecration and submit to him more fully.

God bless you all.
