Mark V, The Parousia is NOT "THE Second Coming" when YAHUSHUA literally and physically comes DOWN TO EARTH, TO CAST THE ANTI-CHRIST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE AND THEN TO RULE ON EARTH FOR 1,000 YEARS. The "Coming" of "Parousia" is a different "Coming" of the "Second Coming".
---Gordon on 4/2/13

Mark E: "No, and no one at this point is worshipping the beast because the beast has yet to be revealed."

News flash: The EU has been revealed! There goes your theory!

---jerry6593 on 4/2/13

Gordon, you say things that are not biblical and expect for someone to believe you. Here you say,
"Jerry, A good husband would protect his bride from harm and would cherish her."
You are comparing the a Holy God and His spiritual bride with a husband and wife. Did God protect Stephen? How about all the others who were either beheaded or crucified? Don't you realize the millions of believers who have died for the sake of Christ? Did God protect them?
You didn't answer my one question. If you do not want to answer my question on the word "Parousia" "the Second Coming" that is ok. I know you have no answer. Lets speak of (Daniel 9:24-27) if you want.
---Mark_V. on 4/1/13


I don't believe that the Man of Sin has yet been revealed - so it's anyone's guess. I don't presume to make conjectures and then tell everyone that such MUST be true (as many do). There are many people who have done that, and it's a great way to get egg on your face when the theory is shown to be false in retrospect. The most I'll do is point out what the Bible specifically says about something, what it DOESN'T say, and/or how somebody's pet theory may be inconsistent with what the Bible says.
---StrongAxe on 4/1/13

Is anyone worshipping the EU?
---jerry6593 on 3/29/13

No, and no one at this point is worshipping the beast because the beast has yet to be revealed.

2 Thes 2:3 "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 destruction"

This man of lawlessness will reveal himself by this:

2 Thes 2:4 "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"

Still think the AC is not a man?
---Mark_Eaton on 4/1/13

Jerry, A good husband would protect his bride from harm and would cherish her. Likewise, the Bridegroom YAHUSHUA will protect His Bride from being harmed by the Wrath of GOD to come during the Tribulation. For the Tribulation is only for the testing of lukewarm Saints and of the haters of GOD. The Bride will be without spot or wrinkle (EPHESIANS 5:27) and will have already passed her trials and tribulations just from her daily walk with her Groom. She'll be found worthy to escape the Tribulation to come. She'll be raptured up into Heaven, in protection, where the Marriage Supper of the Lamb will be celebrated. While the Bridal Saints are feasting and worshipping the LORD above, the Earth below will be in turmoil from Tribulation and Judgments.
---Gordon on 4/1/13

Prophecy watchers have been counting heads and horns with respect to the EU for decades, and every time the number of members changes, the theories change to shoehorn the prophecies to fit the new facts.

Please offer it and let us take pot shots at it.

Anything against the LORD is antichrist >>> KJV 1 John 2:18, 1 John 2:22, 1 John 4:3, 1 John 1:7

Revelation 2:16
Repent, or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.

The LORD will fight the Beast and False Prophet and prevail. The Good News is The kingdoms (governments) of the world will become the Kingdom of God and the LORD will reign on earth forever (Revelation 11:15)

Gods People Back Together - SOON
---Berean_Seeking_Truth on 3/31/13

Gordon: "The Second Coming is when YAHUSHUA literally, physically returns to Earth to rule from Jerusalem. That Event will only occur ONE TIME. The Rapture, on the other hand, is a taking up of GOD's people to Safety"

This is a contradiction. There is NO secret rapture - only the visible 2nd coming of Jesus. There was also no invisible coming in 1914.

---jerry6593 on 3/31/13

Gordon, don't you get what the word "comes" means? The Greek word is "Parousia". In (1 Thess. 4:15)
" For this we say to you by the word of the Lord that we who are alive and remain until the "Coming of the Lord" will by no means precede those who are asleep," it says the "coming of our Lord" He comes.
(2 Thess. 2:1-3)
"Now brethren, concerning the "coming of our Lord" and our gathering together with Him," The word again is "coming" He comes.
You say He doesn't come when He gathers His Church. Just one part of your theory you cannot confirm true to your story. How can you argue for anything else if one part you cannot get right?
---Mark_V. on 3/31/13

Mark V., The Rapture is not a "Second Coming". The Second Coming is when YAHUSHUA literally, physically returns to Earth to rule from Jerusalem. That Event will only occur ONE TIME. The Rapture, on the other hand, is a taking up of GOD's people to Safety, to be with their LORD in Heaven, to protect them from the Great Tribulation. For, the Great Tribulation is not meant for GOD's faithful Believers. They will have already gone through their personal trials and tribulations on Earth, living for the LORD faithfully. The Tribulation is only for the GOD-rejecting unbelievers and the disobedient, lukewarm christians. And, the Trib will hold those who fight against the truth. One does receive according to their faith.
---Gordon on 3/30/13

Gordon, your story is not sound. you have been deceived as Paul warns. There is only One Second Coming. Not two. Here is what Paul said in (2 Thess. 2:1-3).
"Now, brethren, concerning the Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together with Him, we ask you, 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. 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."
What comes first? The falling away, then the man of sin the son of perdition is revealed then the Second Coming and gathering of believers.
---Mark_V. on 3/30/13

Mark V, It shall be "one evil Dude", and I'll tell you why....1) That is what Scripture says in REVELATION 13. And, 2) Because, as I keep reminding all here, Satan imitates GOD, for he has always wanted to be "God". He imitates GOD and manifests his own evil version of what GOD does to deceive people and lasso them into Hell. Just as God sent "a Man" (His Son) to be the Saviour of 'whosoever will' (JOHN 3:16), So likewise, Satan will send "a Man of Sin" (Satan's Son of Perdition) to the lost world that will worship him (REVELATION 13:4,18). This Son of Perdition will be Satan's epic mocking of the Son of GOD.
---Gordon on 3/29/13

Mark E: The EU doesn't even come close. The mark is still future, and most importantly, it involves WORSHIP of the beast rather than God. Is anyone worshipping the EU?

---jerry6593 on 3/29/13

Gordon, you are giving me the story of Left behind. That story is false. You are first assuming there are to Second Comings of Christ. One invisible and one visible. You are assuming there is two Churches, one taken, and the other left behind to fight with the dragon the beast and whoever. Paul used other phrases in (2 Thess. 2) to describe this same antichrist, as the son of perdition, (v.3) the mystery of lawlessness (v.7) that wicked (v.8). In Daniel's parallel prophecy, this same horror is also called a little "horn" (Dan. 7:8). Rev 13 labels "the beast" and we all agree these words and phrases apply to the same thing. The question is, does it apply to one "evil Dude?" I say no and will tell you why.
---Mark_V. on 3/29/13

Mark V., The entire Chapter 13 of REVELATION is about the future Anti-Christ and some of what he will do. Verse 1 mentions this Beast. Verses 5, 6 and 7 tell of him speaking arrogant and boastful things, as a man would, against GOD. The final Verse 18 indicates that the number 666 is the number of a "man". It requires the comparing Scripture with Scripture to put the pieces together to form the complete picture. It just won't always be answered with one simple Bible Verse. That Beast from DANIEL which you mentioned is a different Beast. The "little horn" from DANIEL 7:8 is an O.T. Prophecy of the same Anti-Christ as portrayed as the first Beast of REVELATION 13.

Unless NOBODY ON THE PLANET can buy nor sell without having the EU logo tattooed on their hand or head, they don't fulfil the qualifiations. As far as I know, nobody living in the EU needs to have such a mark either, so it's WAY off the mark (at least for now).

Prophecy watchers have been counting heads and horns with respect to the EU for decades, and every time the number of members changes, the theories change to shoehorn the prophecies to fit the new facts.
---StrongAxe on 3/28/13

Can you name any other entity in history that fits all the biblical clues? I didn't think so.
---jerry6593 on 3/28/13

Sure, the European Union.

Ten kingdoms, remember the horns and the toes? There were ten original member states in the EU. Iron mixed with clay, strong but only for looks. EU is not strong militarily but economically.

However, the little horn, the one who uproots 3 others is like a man, has the image of a man, and has the number of a man. The little horn is the "Man of Sin" and the "Son of Perdition".
---Mark_Eaton on 3/28/13


You said: As for the 1260 year prophecy, ask yourself what power ruled the civilized world and persecuted Christians from AD 538 to 1978 (1260 years).

And has that power ever been in a position where nobody in the entire world could buy or sell without that power's name (or number of the name) on one's hand or forehead? If not, then it's not The Antichrist. I don't recall anybody ever achieving that in the past, do you? And I don't see any power in existence in the world today being able to pull that off either.
---StrongAxe on 3/27/13

Mark E, where are we told the beast is a man? How did Daniel discribe the beast?
"The fourth beast shall be a fourth kingdom on earth" (Dan 7: 4-7, 23) Now, was this a man? A giant computer? no, but beast refers to a kingdom. That is what was spoken of in (Dan. 7: 4-7,23). In (Dan. 8: Gabriel made him understand the vision.

Mark E: "I have heard this all before. The RCC is the AntiChrist. Geesh, can't you see that is incorrect?"

No! It is the RC Papacy - not the church - that is the antichrist. This view was held by nearly all the protestant reformers. Can you name any other entity in history that fits all the biblical clues? I didn't think so.

---jerry6593 on 3/28/13

Thus, all the clues I gave fit the same entity.
---jerry6593 on 3/27/13

I have heard this all before. The RCC is the AntiChrist. Geesh, can't you see that is incorrect?

First, the beast from the earth makes everyone worship the beast from the sea. People don't worship religion, they worship a person (think Hitler).

Second, the Great Harlot rides a beast with 7 heads, not a dragon. She sits on many waters, a symbol for peoples. The woman is a political entity, not the church.

Third, the beast is a man, as I mentioned before. There is a political power to him, but ultimately he is a man like Jesus.
---Mark_Eaton on 3/27/13

Mark E: I believe that Gordon is correct in that:

"The Anti-Christ is the "Man of Sin" and the "Son of Perdition"."

Thus, all the clues I gave fit the same entity. The Bible consistently refers to a "beast" in prophecy when describing a political power. The Antichrist is diverse from other political powers because it is religious as well as political (think iron and clay). It is a church (woman) riding on a dragon (satan) with a man at its head whose name (title) adds to 666 and who thinks to change times and laws (4th Commandment).

As for the 1260 year prophecy, ask yourself what power ruled the civilized world and persecuted Christians from AD 538 to 1978 (1260 years).
---jerry6593 on 3/27/13

All the world wonders after the Beast.
---jerry6593 on 3/25/13

You are mixing all kinds of prophesy without regard to accuracy.

The Beast is not the woman riding the scarlet beast in Rev 17.

The Beast is not seated on seven hills, the woman is.

There has never been a prophesy discussing 1260 years. Rather, all prophesies discussing 42 months, or a time times and half a time would either be 1260 days, or 3.5 years, or 24.5 years if a week of years were used.

The Beast is a man. Rev 13:18.

Peter, IT DOES NOT CHANGE THE FACT THAT THE SAVIOUR WAS HEBREW AND HIS NAME WAS HEBREW ALSO. AND, "JESUS" IS NOT A HEBREW NAME. Regardless of whether He spoke "Aramaic". His LINEAGE was Hebrew! We can call on the Name of "JESUS" right now, it is still an Anointed Name. But, it will only continue to be Anointed by GOD until the time the Anti-Christ is actively ruling and calling himself "Jesus". "JESUS" is simply is not the real Name given to the Saviour at His Birth. One's birth-name is a person's true Proper Name. That THERE is just common knowledge. Nothing will change that. The Anti-Christ will be an evil version of the true Messiah, the true Christ. Satan imitates GOD, but, only to deceive.
---Gordon on 3/26/13

Mark V, The Anti-Christ is the "Man of Sin" and the "Son of Perdition". Those are Biblical "nick-names" or "titles" for the Anti-Christ. Just as YAHUSHUA has other Titles such as "the King of kings" and "the Rose of Sharon", etc. I mean, who do you think the "Man of Sin" IS? You just now did what you keep accusing me of. Your last post was nothing but YOUR OWN WORDS, Mark V. It was YOUR OWN WORDS that you used to refute my comments. You did not use the Holy Scriptures! And, because of your misunderstanding of II THESSALONIANS 2, I KNOW that your doctrine is off-base and whacked! Please WAKE-UP!

Gordon: I'll second StrongAxe's comment...


In GREEK the pronunciation could be Iesous or possibly Iisous (it's hard to transliterate the Greek alphabet to Latin)

We only have good copies of the NT in Greek, not in Aramaic or Hebrew - there are fragments in both, but the majority are in Greek

So you are guessing
---Peter on 3/26/13


According to the Bible, no one will be LEFT BEHIND when Jesus returns to resurrect His saints.

2Th 2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

Rev 20:5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.

Heb 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.

Gordon, you said a lot again and gave one passage that doesn't even say what you say. You now say, the whole church not going out, the whole church is not the bride. The antichrist is in 2 Thess. is false.
Nowhere is the antichrist mentioned in those passages. Only if you want them to.
With all your words, you could start yet another denomination. Why is it that when you give a passage, nothing you have said is in that passage? Is that the reason you do not put passages down? Others will expose your heresies.
---Mark_V. on 3/26/13


You said:

That Name was the Hebraic "YAHUSHUA".

Actually, most sources I know say "yehoshuah", not "yahushua". In Hebrew vowels frequently change, and "yehoshua" is much more likely correct.

It's not about me "being right". It's about what is TRUE.

It IS about what is RIGHT. The Apostles all thought "iesous" was perfectly right for all of us - there was no NEED to be specific about the Hebrew pronunciation (unlike the Destroyer, who was listed as BOTH Hebrew "abbadon" and Greek "appolyon"). Of course, you seem to think that you have a better idea of what God thinks is OK than the Apostles all did.

Mark V, The whole Church will not be raptured together. The whole Church is not the Bride. Only the Faithful Saints who love YAHUSHUA with their whole hearts and live in Holiness and Truth and Love will be a part of the Bride of Christ YAHUSHUA, The segment of the Church who will be LEFT BEHIND to endure the Tribulation are the compromising and lukewarm Saints of REVELATION 3. They shall be vomited out of the Body of Christ for they are inworthy to escape the Judgments to come. The "Laodicean" lukewarm Saints were unwilling to lay down their lives faithfully for YAHUSHUA before, so they will have to lay their lives down LITERALLY and PHYSICALLY. REVELATION 20:4, etc.

Trav, thankyou. I appreciate your kind words.

I used only the words of Jesus and was told that I have a "strange theology". This is sad but no surprise to me.

Jesus told us that His sheep would hear His voice and follow Him and that they would not know the voice of strangers but would flee from them. And so I will continue to abide in the voice of my Shepherd and flee the empty promises given by the wolf in sheep's clothing.
---barb on 3/25/13

Yes, Mark V. "That Day" IS referring to the Second Coming of YAHUSHUA. II THESSALONIANS 2 is saying that the Second Coming of YAHUSHUA will not happen until the great Falling Away and the Anti-Christ appear first. In other words, the great Falling Away (Apostasy) and the Anti-Christ will both happen first, and then, afterwards, the Second Coming of YAHUSHUA the Messiah and King will occur. Now, all of the things which I have posted earlier do not deny those Events in these Verses. So, what exactly is your point bringing up "That Day"?? I'm talking about the NAME of the Anti-Christ. The name does not effect the Biblical order of Events. It merely looks like you're forming rabbit trails that divert from MY point.
---Gordon on 3/25/13

Gordon, you gave a passage that totally speaks against what you say. First in ( 2Thess. 2:1-4) is speaking of "That Day" that day is the Day of the Lord. The Day of the Lord is the Second Coming. There is no two Second Coming, one invisible and one visible. Only one. Then you are speaking of two Churches one before the rapture and one after. There is only one Church. Also the passage speaks of the Son of Perdition, the man of sin. Only one Son of perdition in the Bible. Judas. The falling away (apostasy) comes before Jesus Second coming, it will be the loudest event in the history of the Bible, it will not be invisible and secret as we were warned in Matt. 24:24:26).
---Mark_V. on 3/25/13

Bible Clues:

It's both a woman (church) and a city.

It's seat is on seven mountains (or hills).

It arises from among the 10 nations after the fall of pagan Rome, and as a "little horn," it roots up 3 of the 10.

It is diverse from the other powers - as iron and clay are unmixable.

It has the eyes of a man and a name which may be counted to total 666.

It speaks blasphemy - Bible examples: (1) claiming to be God and (2) claiming the power to forgive sins against God.

It persecuted the saints of God for 1260 years (42 months or 3 1/2 times).

It thinks to change times and laws.

It suffered a deadly wound that was healed.

Mark V, II THESSALONIANS 2:3-4 says, "...for that day shall not come , except there come a falling away first, and that Man of Sin be revealed, the Son of Perdition, Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped, so that, he, as God, sitteth in the Temple as God, shewing himself that he is God." This Verse is tells us that the Anti-Christ will declare himself to be God. We know that YAHUSHUA is God. And, here, the Anti-Christ will make it out like he is "God", like "God the Son". The Anti-Christ, who will be AGAINST the true CHRIST, will try to TAKE THE PLACE OF the true CHRIST. "Anti" means both "against" and "in place of". Satan imitates GOD.

Mark V, The angel Gabriel told Mary (Miryam) what the Proper Name of the Messiah was to be. "Proper Name" is the grammatical term for one's first name. My proper name is Gordon.

Anyone that really knows Hebrew will tell you that the Name JESUS is not Hebrew. It is from Greek. He has many Titles and other "Names", I just said that "JESUS" is Valid now. But, as a Man, He was given one specific Proper name, like other men. That Name was the Hebraic "YAHUSHUA". It's not about me "being right". It's about what is TRUE.

Cluny: Ok, OK, OK..... thanks for correcting my spelling and explanation

In the case of Iisous (this site won't write Greek) it is just an ou - I was not trying to explain it to YOU, I was just trying to make it a bit simpler

Here it is a simple ou

My point was mostly the explain the lack of the J, but I tried to explain things and failed badly!

---Peter on 3/24/13

\\The J at the beginning does not exist in the Greek, the e is pronounced between an e and a long ii, and the u is pronounced more like an ou, if you take it from the Greek new testament.\\


In Greek, the only way to represent the U phoneme is with the OY diagraph.

The letter that many people call UPSILON is really called YPSILON in Greek, and after some vowels, it sounds like the consonant V.

Gordon, I'm sorry to say you got so deep in your mess you cannot get yourself out. You never could find an answer to my question concerning the anti-christ. Gave no passage to indicate what you say. If you cannot even support your view with Scripture concerning the anti-christ, how can your whole story have any validity? You are teaching a new gospel. Something you picked up and will not recant. This is called 'theological bias' something that is wrong that you learned, that you fight for and it is very hard to admit that the whole time you were wrong. Jesus had many names. The Bible tells us so. History tells us so. Writers of Scripture tells us so. And from nowhere you come out and say the Bible is wrong. Everyone is wrong, but you are right.
---Mark_V. on 3/24/13


So, basically, you are saying that God is nice enough to allow people to be saved under an "incorrect" name, but that at some time later, this permission will suddenly be removed - i.e. anyone who after that point reads an actual Bible (the text of which was actually written by the Apostles) will be deluded and damned. They will need to use a DIFFERENT name than what the Bible ACTUALLY records.

You are creating a new gospel that says the old gospel will no longer be sufficient. Do you STILL not see how terribly deluded and outright heretical this sounds?

\\But, ONLY, that is, until the Anti-Christ begins to actually rule, where he will then literally use the name of "Jesus" for himself. When he does that, the real JESUS will begin to only answer to "YAHUSHUA".\\

Gordon, how can you disprove that one of the doctrines of the Antichrist will be making an issue of the transliteration "Yehushua"?

Making issues of small matters like this is a good way of getting your eyes off the Savior.

You're using their same logic as Jehovah's false witnesses.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 3/23/13

Gordon: The exact pronunciation is uncertain, especially as the Bible we have is a Greek translation from the initial Aramaic - thus there will be some errors.

The J at the beginning does not exist in the Greek, the e is pronounced between an e and a long ii, and the u is pronounced more like an ou, if you take it from the Greek new testament.

If you know more, BEYOND what was agreed at the discussions as to what should be in the NT, you may state that. But that is not taken FROM the Bible - it is an addition TO the Bible, and like all additions, it must be dealt with like all other additions - as something potentially dangerous
---Peter on 3/23/13

Mark V. I'm trying to explain this as simply as possible. The actual Name of the Saviour is "YAHUSHUA". But, later on, with Latin and Greek, etc, bringing the emergence of the "transliterated" Name of "JESUS".....'though it wasn't really His original Name, GOD allowed it and Anointed it for Salvation. But, His true Anointed Name was, all the while, still "YAHUSHUA". So, GOD "ALLOWED" and still "allows" the Name of JESUS" for Salvation and Help. But, ONLY, that is, until the Anti-Christ begins to actually rule, where he will then literally use the name of "Jesus" for himself. When he does that, the real JESUS will begin to only answer to "YAHUSHUA".
---Gordon on 3/23/13

Gordon, you again gave a lot of talk but not one passage to indicate what you say is correct. What does the Bible really teach about the anti-christ or anti-christs? For some perticular reason those names are only found in two little books in the Bible, 1st and 2nd John. Nowhere else are those two names found, no matter how hard you look for them, or try to rationalize them somewhere else.
1 John 2:18, 1 John 2:19, 1John 2:22, 1 John 2:26, 1 John 4:3, 1 John 4:4, 1 John 4:6, 2 John 7, 2 John 9.
And if the name of Jesus is Jesus the annointed, why do you say His name is not Jesus? And that you are right and everyone else is wrong.

The antichrist will tell everyone what they want to hear. He will be all things to all people. Satan has laid the groundwork many long years ago.

He will deceive anyone who has not saturated themselves in the Word of God. And if we think that we cannot be fooled than we are fooled already.

Gordon, I know it is God's desire for every single member of the Church no matter who, to KNOW these things. Yet I see some make such smirky remarks like..."know it all". With remarks like this, it really makes me wonder where that person's heart is to begin with...or they call you a liar, again we KNOW where that heart is.

Do you know, I thank The Lord EVERYDAY that He has taught me and shown me so many truths to keep me out of harms way. God is a jealous God over those who are His.

Some 30, some 70, some 100.. Who controls that. our fruit is not to display like a new suit, or eat ourselves, but there for others to eat, not inspect and criticize.

"What will the Anti-Christ be like?"
He shall be "a king of fierce countenance, [who] understands perplexing questions, and through his cunning He shall cause deceit to prosper under his rule, and he shall exalt himself in his heart, and by peace He shall destroy many in their prosperity, [for] he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries. Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery, [Even him], whose coming is according to the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish," [for] He will "perform great signs and wonders....Dan 8:23>Dan 8:25>Dan 11:21> Dan 11:32>2Th 2:9,10>Rev 13:13

Gordon I know the "anti-Christ" will come and he will be charismatic in every sense of the word. he is the one who will stamp 666 on "whoever is left". when I read your post I didn't know which one you meant. sorry bout that.

The Anti-Christ will be very charismatic, very intolerant, very controlling and a dictator. There are 4 broad areas he will have to control to operated in a world conquest: 1. The political, 2. The economic, 3. The social & cultural and 4. The religious

As a piece of information, Anti-Christ doesn't have to mean,"Against Christ", but it can also mean, "Instead of Christ"
---wivv on 3/21/13

Kathr, How true that is. Also, if anyone can come up with history records that show, in 70 A.D. when the Anti-Christ supposedly reigned, that 1/3 to 2/3 of the Earth's population was killed off by the plagues, etc, as per REVELATION 8 and 9, etc. And, when did the King Of Kings come back and take ahold of that Anti-Christ and cast him into the Lake of Fire, as prophecied to happen in REVELATION 19:19-20?? These people have alot more explaining to do. They do not seek GOD's Spirit of Wisdom and Understanding. Instead, these heresy-weavers are used by Satan to confuse the Church. It has worked to a degree. But, we have the opportunity to be in understanding of these End-Times, if we truly want. By GOD's Grace.
---Gordon on 3/21/13

Gordon, the problem here is many want to spiritualize away Revelation or falsely believe this all happened in 70AD. What a lie. How can anyone justify so many facts being told us and spiritualize it away? That itself is the work of Satan.

Nero was not the beast anti_Christ either, as the beast in scripture never commits suicide.
---kathr4453 on 3/21/13

Kathr, Yes, And, do you notice that pattern there? Here, we have Satan the Dragon as the one behind the Anti-Christ and the False Prophet. His is a mockery of the Salvation Plan of GOD. Satan, the Father of Lies, the Dragon, is the imitation of God the Father. The "spirit of the antichrist" is like the Blessed Holy Spirit. The Anti-Christ is a mockery of the True CHRIST, the Son of GOD. And, the False Prophet will point the World to the Anti-Christ, just as John the Baptist pointed them to the True CHRIST. The New World Order is influencing Madison Avenue to sell it's Satanic views on life. People are eating it up, as we saw at the Olympics and through the likes of Justin Bieber, Rihanna, TWILIGHT and Harry Potter, etc.

Mark V, The Name of JESUS has been Anointed by GOD for Salvation. The Anti-Christ is not in power yet. The "spirit of anti-christ" is working today, prepping people to receive the Anti-Christ. But the A.C. himself is not ruling now. So the Name of JESUS is applicable to GOD's Son. When the Anti-Christ comes into power and tells the World that he is "THE Jesus Christ" THAT will be the time when the name of Jesus will no longer apply to the Saviour. And that name will be used by the Enemy. Satan will use that name for his own evil plans. And GOD will allow it. HOW? Because that is not HIS Son's real Name! At the time of the A.C. the Saviour will FROM THEN ON only answer to His Name "YAHUSHUA", not "JESUS".
---Gordon on 3/21/13

Shira, Yes Satan already appears today as an "angel of light". But he does so in many different ways. The phony benevolence and charismatic allure of the future Anti-Christ will be one of those many ways. The Bible says that the "spirit of the Anti-Christ" is already in the World today, I JOHN 4:3. But, that is not the same thing as the Anti-Christ himself. The spirit of anti-christ is now preparing the World so that they will be drawn to the A.C. when he gets here. Just as the Holy Spirit draws the World to the true Saviour. Satan imitates what GOD does. He's always wanted to BE God, and he still does! What no greater Lie than for Satan to present his own "christ" to appear as if he were the true Christ of GOD?

Revelation 19:20
And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

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.

Gordon, I see in the last verse here 3 totally separate beings,

1.)the beast and

2.)false prophet are in the lake of fire before the final judgement and then

3.)Satan or AKA the Devil himself will join them.

Gordon, satan is already here as an angel of light. he is the one who deceives us now. he will talk you into doing the very thing you say...(you being all of us). you will never do. we have to arm ourselves with God's Word. we are in a war spiritually speaking of course. God bless you

Gordon, it's a subject that takes a lot of grounding in Scripture.

To begin, Satan offered Jesus (in the desert 40 days) the Kingdoms of the world if Jesus would bow down and worship him. Jesus refused KNOWING one day all would belong to Him anyway.

Today the kingdoms of this world are in Satans hands, and that offer will again be extended to someone, the anti-Christ, re-read Revelations re: kingdoms this kingdoms that setting himself up as though he were God having power over the kingdoms and people.

When Jesus returns ..the Second coming , it's to totally overthrow this false imposter and reign once and for all as KING OF KINGS not only in Israel, but the whole world. Zechariah 12-14 is very insightful of this time.
---kathr4453 on 3/21/13

Gordon, We are warned too, that there will be many false Christ's . Serious warnings..I guess to give discernment when the REAL final one shows. But, it appears by some smirky answers here, people feel it is a big joke. It's not.

He will be very charming, charismatic, work wonders, etc, so much so, he will TOTALLY DECEIVE that even God's Elect need to be on their says scripture.

It,s not going to be some obvious man in a red suit with horns...

Unless you KNOW the Word of God, as many don't who profess to be Christians, but follow man's teaching....they will be the ones deceived with all the remaining unbelievers. Just look at how devoted many are now to their guru's, and when warned...spit on you.
---kathr4453 on 3/21/13

Gordon, the anti-christ is here already. The spirit of the anti-christ is already working in many here on line. Just look at their answers. They are anti-God. They want their own power, dependence from God.
"Even now there are many anti-christ" (1 John 2:18)
"These many anti-christ "went out from us." (1 John 2:19).
"Anyone who denies the Father and the Son is anti-christ ( 1 John 2:22).
"These anti-christ are trying to seduce us away from Jesus Christ" ( 1 John 2:26).
"The spirit of the anti-christ is already in the world" (1 John 4:3).
"The spirit of the anti-christ is the spirit of error" (1 John 4:6).
---Mark_V. on 3/21/13

Anyone who is against Jesus Christ and His teachings is "antiChriust". There are many of those individuals but there will be an End Time individual which will be considered as " The Anti-Christ".

Who is it? I do not know for sure but it want be long until we do know. No one truly knows who it is at this time.

Gordon, you seem to imply on the other blog that the anti-christ will be called Jesus Christ. But ( 1 John 2:18) tells us,
"Even now there are many anti-christ"
If the anti-christ is called Jesus Christ, then many here who call upon the name of Jesus Christ are really calling the anti-christ. You mentioned that because His name you say, is not Jesus at all, but Yehoshuah. Everyone has got it wrong, but you got the right One.

The Anti-Christ will come as an "angel of light" and he will have the World fooled so well that they will really believe that he is "Jesus Christ", the answer-man for all the World's problems. His appearance will be as "compassionate" and "Godly" on the outside, but, filthy, sinful, pernicious and depraved on the inside. He'll have a great abhorrence for GOD and man. The Scriptures say the whole World will praise and worship Satan, the Dragon, for giving them this great Bestial leader.
