The Antichrist


The Antichrist

Major religions are currently anticipating the appearance of their “savior,” variously called, “Messiah,” “Jesus Christ,” “the Twelfth Mahdi,” “the Fifth Buddha,” or “the Tenth Avatar.” Within ecumenical circles, there is a growing awareness that one single man might actually fulfill all these religions’ expectations. A one-size-fits-all messiah would bring all the world’s religions together.
 
Christianity

If you consider the broadest definition of Christianity, not all of the approximately 2.1 billion Christians anticipate the arrival of Jesus Christ as Messiah. The Catholic Church, as well as some Orthodox groups, does not emphasize the return of Jesus Christ.
 
Islam

Many of about 1.5 billion Muslims believe that the Twelfth Mahdi will be a descendant of Mohammed and that he will precede the coming of Jesus Christ. He will face his own “antichrist,” convert the world to Islam, and bring forth peace and justice out of a season of injustice and chaos. He will be preceded by a “deputy,” who will prepare the way for him. The President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has aspirations to be the next Mahdi. There is evidence that some Muslim powers actually want international chaos to escalate so that their Imam will appear.
 
Hinduism

Most of world’s 900 Million Hindus look for the Tenth Avatar – Kalki. Many Hindus believe Vishnu is the creator who dwells within each person’s soul and incarnates himself in the form of an Avatar whenever his presence is needed. The Tenth Avatar will be the last and will reign for over 400,000 years. He is to liberate the world from suffering, and enlighten all mankind.
 
Buddhism

Buddha taught that Buddhism would almost perish from the earth because the world would abandon moral conduct and become amoral, but then a new Buddha, a Maitreya would appear. He will achieve complete enlightenment, and teach the pure dharma – “the way of the higher truths.” He is predicted to be a “world-ruler,” uniting those who he rules over.
 
Judaism

Many of the roughly 14 million Jews long for Messiah, the Anointed King. They look for him to restore the Davidic Kingdom, rebuild the temple, re-gather a prosperous Israel and defeat her enemies, and bring peace to the world.
 
Luciferianism/New World Order

For the United Nations Interfaithism movement and many new age, ecumenical groups, there is a rising expectation of a universal messiah. The Lucis Trust, once called the Lucifer Foundation, has heavily influenced the United Nations from its founding. At its roots are occult secret societies such as Freemasons, Wicca, and the Order of the Golden Dawn. Robert Muller and Maurice Strong, influential in the founding of the United Nations, are adept new age advocates who tirelessly promote the blending of all religious faiths.
 
The “Son of Perdition”

Advocates of the New World Order will attempt to fulfill the world’s messianic expectations with one man. Christians call him the Antichrist. II Thessalonians 2:3-4 tells us that the Day of Christ will not come until “the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition,” commonly called the Antichrist. He will sit in the Temple in Jerusalem and demand to be worshipped as God. He is also called “the beast,” in the book of Revelation. This tyrannical world dictator, empowered by Satan and the embodiment of all that is opposed to God, will be defeated by Christ at his second coming (II Thessalonians 2:8).
 
The Real Christ

After terminating the reign of the Antichrist, the real Christ will establish His kingdom on earth, a kingdom that will never pass away.
And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!” Revelation 11:15

One response to “The Antichrist

  1. “do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God“. 1 John 4:1 The apostle John asks: “Who is the [real] liar? It is the man who denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a man is the antichrist – he denies the Father and the Son.” 1 John 2:22We are living in a day and age where many are accommodating the pressure from the world to be “tolerant” and not offend anyone; just get along with everyone.
