The Antichrist is here, but before I tell you how I know he is here I want to talk a little about who he is and why I am interested to be writing to you today on the topic. It was not long after I became a Christian that I heard of the Antichrist. Everyone who becomes a born again Christian learns of the Antichrist.. Even the disciples of the apostle John knew of him and were on the lookout for him. His very name and mission evokes fear. The idea that he will lead the final world power that will have world dominion is just as frightening.
The Antichrist is the embodiment of all evil. I do not think we can even fully comprehend how vile he will be but we have seen glimpses of his character through past dictators and sadistic persons who have committed unimaginable crimes. Previous evil leaders provide a glimpse into the horrors of life under his regime. Unlike dictators before him, the Antichrist possesses superior intellect and his government will have world rule.
Jesus in the Gospels describes a police state where family members turn over family members to death, which we have begun to see occur in the Islamic State, but it will be even more prevalent during the Tribulation under the Antichrist. In Matthew 10:21-22 Jesus warned:
The Antichrist will evoke such hatred in the masses that he rules that father's will turn over their own children and children their own parents to death. He enters the world during a time when sin and wickedness is at the full and the love of many will have grown cold. Men and women will be brutal and without natural affection.
The Antichrist will hate all that has to do with Jesus, His people, the Bible, its teachings, and all that he feels opposes him and worship of him alone and the empire that he has built.
The Antichrist is the son of Satan. Imagine the son of the the Devil who is the epitome of all evil. Like Jesus came to the earth with a ministry and a mission so will the Antichrist walk this Earth and be given the power to rule it. We must remember that his authority is given to him by God, as he is used as the rod of God's anger onto a sinful world.
The Antichrist is Jesus Christ’s nemesis, and he takes a role in the battle of the ages between God and Satan. It is God who allows his reign for His divine purposes.
Through the years, Christians have asked many questions about the Antichrist. I have a book I wrote about the Antichrist called The Antichrist of Revelation:666 and in it I answer many questions that many have asked about the Antichrist. I reveal a good deal of information that is not common knowledge but is in the Bible concerning the person of the Antichrist.
As I stated in the introduction to my book:
I have met several self-righteous souls who feel that we should not spend time talking about the Antichrist. He is in the Bible, and he is there for a reason. He will be involved in a significant time in Israel’s and the world’s history. He ushers in the end of the world. To worship him equals spiritual death, but to defy him equals physical death and eternal life. For us today he is our warning of what is to come, and if you do not know Jesus Christ as your personal savior, you need to be afraid. If you are a Christian, you must be diligent and watching as Christ commanded and ready for when the King returns.
We need to be ready because most likely the Antichrist is here now, he is living and breathing the same air as us, he is now walking the earth working his way to his political position i.e political seat.
What is a terrible thought but a reality in today's world is that the Antichrist most likely has a Facebook page and a Twitter account and he is social networking from his current political position and he owns a smart phone. The Antichrist is here as one of us, living among us, only he is the Son of Satan and when the timing is right he will get into his political seat.
How do I know the Antichrist is here? Because we are well into the signs of the end times. For more details on the end time signs of Bible Prophecy, check out my other articles and videos.
