11 “And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
12And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
13And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
14And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.”
I was reading about the coming One World Government that is in the planning stages right now through the new U.N. Charter of Agenda 21 and Sustainable Development and wondered to my self, “How will the world fall sway to the likes of the Anti-Christ and how will it start?” I’ve spoken of this before, but the Lord laid it on my heart to sound the warning again.
There are three foundations that must be in place for the Anti-Christ to rise.
there will have to be a one world economy. No borders, and all sovereignty of any nation will be submissive to the economy of the coming cashless society.
There will have to be something present that will steer all the nations to one leader that will come, and the man, called the “false prophet” will be the mouthpiece that brings all nations under one “king” or dictator and he will use “religion” as the beginning of the next foundation stone, by using a One World Religion to unite them.
Total control of all functions of government over the entire world that combines religion, government, and the economy into one Satanic effort to rule the world through sinful men.
Those are the foundation stones that will bring about the rise of the Anti-Christ, but how do we get from here to there? Let us explore the wide road that will lead to the destruction of this world we call earth. According to Bible prophecy, these three foundations must be in place before the Anti-Christ will rise to power.
THE RISE OF ISLAM
Back in 1979, when Iran first came upon the scene by capturing American hostages and the Mullahs of Iran formed a theocracy by overthrowing the Shah of Iran, they created what many believed were nothing but a bunch of Persian and Arab nations that embraced a 1400 year old primitive “religion” that was not a threat to any Western nation that held onto democratic principles of “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”. Without making a formal declaration, Islam had declared war on the rest of the world they called “infidels” and had their target placed on the Great Satan (America) and the little Satan (Israel).
For the last 40 years, Islam has grown worldwide as the 2nd largest “religion” on earth by the sword, or by blinding those who look for something to fill that empty void inside of their own lives and have looked to Islam, as they have rejected Christianity because mainly, they see idolatry and hypocrisy within it’s ranks. The formal church within Christiandom as fallen into “luke warm” apostasy, paganism and it has done nothing but send the young and impressionable likes of this last generation into its evil clutches. Islam now is the fastest growing “religion” in America.
As the opening title suggest, there has been a strong push to unite the world under one banner. Such an effort has seen one man visiting Muslim mosques and praying along with the Imam of the mosque to a “god” they both claim to be the same God we serve, Jehovah, Yahweh, or God Almighty. He has been trying to convince the religions of the world, found mainly in Christianity to unite and embrace one another in a show of unity. The cry is “come back to the mother church”. Without me saying a word, you should now know who I am referring to.
The present pope, namely pope Francis has been on a world-wide swing to unite all faiths into one religion and makes pilgrimages to Muslim countries to convince those of this pagan religion to come together as “brothers” in a blend of both Christianity and Islam, coining the name Chrislam.
This pope by his actions, tries to convince with soft words and logic that both of the two major religions of the world serve the same God. Allah is god, Jehovah is God, and they are one and the same! But let us compare these two deities that billions of people worship . Are they the same? (one true, one is false) Guess which is which?
Jehovah, (Yahweh) is a God of grace and mercy. The Bible says that God is Love!
“And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.” (1st John 4:16)
The Holy Attributes of the true God of the Bible is a God without sin, perfect, Holy, omnipresent, omniscient, all knowing, Creator of the Universe who gave His only Begotten Son as a ransom for the sins of mankind.
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him, should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)
“Be ye holy, for I am Holy” (1st Peter 1:16)
Yet, the Pope would have us believe that this “allah” is the same Holy Being we read in our bible. What are the attributes of “allah”?
Allah was one of many “gods” worshiped in pagan Arabia at the time of Mohammed. Mohammed got rid of all gods, but one which was worshiped as the moon goddess. By attributes, this god has feminine characteristics, but was changed to a male that made women inferior.
Allah is a “god” of war. To demand “jihad” or holy war to convert all other people of other religions to Islam by the sword. He demands that you sacrifice yourself in acts of murder and martyrdom to promote the “religion” and to die in his service is to be rewarded paradise where you will be waited upon by 77 virgins to fulfill you every wish of the physical including your sexual needs.
This allah, denies he has a son, as his “prophet” Mohammed said that allah has no son, so they deny the deity of Jesus Christ and reduce Him to a prophet or a teacher.
Islam claims that this “allah” has 99 different attributes that fly in the face of the God of the Bible and His Ten Commandments for righteous living.
Just on these few attributes, one can see that there is a vast difference between a God of love, and a god of war and murder. But note that the “false prophet” will speak as a dragon although giving the false impression of being righteous and a leader of purity and holiness as of a lamb.
1) He will claim authority over pure Christianity. The references to ‘the lamb’ are pretty much self-explanatory. It is a reference to something ‘like’ Christianity, but a counterfeit. . . . “he spake as a dragon.” (Revelation 13:11)
It will share political power with the first beast. “And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him.”
3) Participation will be mandatory. “cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.” (Revelation 13:15)
The method employed by the false prophet’s religious system as the penalty for refusing conversion is decapitation.
“and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshiped the beast.” (Revelation 20:4)
For more than a 1000 years, the Catholic church has used various means to destroy opposition to its rule of the earth. It has been a blend of political and religious theological ideas, but that is where the similarities end. I believe the Catholic church will rise again, and impose another Grand Inquisition to dwarf that of the Dark Ages of Europe.
Yet, there is another religion that fits John description of death by beheading like a glove. Islam claims to be the third and final revelation from God that give it authority over Christians and Jews. Islam is not just a religion, but a political system that fulfils the first two points above of the rise of a One World Religion better than the Vatican can alone. Through Sharia law, Islam is a religion of the sword, that has used decapitation as the supreme penalty for not submitting to their hateful religion. Even the name Islam is interpreted as “submission” and on its use of Sharia law fulfils point three above. So fulfilling point 3 is a matter of existing religious doctrine—not a new doctrine forced upon an existing system by a mad pope.
BUT WHERE WILL THE ANTI-CHRIST COME FROM?
I have explored many avenues that this “man of sin” could come from, but I am beginning to believe that it is more likely that the man is either a closet Muslim, or a moderate Muslim that will come upon the scene and promoted by none other than the false prophet who will blend all religions, Islam and Christianity into one religion, called Chrislam. But in the middle of the coming Tribulation, the Anti-Christ will eventually reject all forms of religion based, save the worship of himself, and indwelt by Satan and will sit in the Temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God. Why do I say he could possibly be Muslim?
The prophet Daniel identifies the antichrist as being of
“the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary.” (Daniel 9:26)
Hence the interpretation that the antichrist comes to power through some form of a revived Roman Empire that serves as a de facto global government.
In this generation, the countries of the old Roman Empire united under the banner of the European Union, uniting Europe as a single empire for the first time since the fall of Rome. They are loosely connected, as Daniel spoke of the 10 toes of the statue that the King of Babylon dreamed of, consisting of iron mixed with clay. (Portions strong, and portions of it weak). So is the popular belief, but is that entirely true, or is there more in this slight of hand the devil doesn’t want us to focus on?
There is a point at which people live in the dark willfully as a result of self-imposed ignorance and I think this is it. That’s sad to me.
Alas, I lament that so many lovers of prophecy are missing the very things they have been longing to see!
Watching people look for the rise of the Antichrist’s kingdom in Europe while it’s forming right now in the Middle East is the closest we will come to watching the Jews miss the First Advent of Christ while He was standing right before them. They, too, were looking in a different geographic area.
As history shows us, Titus who became Emperor Titus, destroyed the Temple in 70 AD. Now we know that Roman soldiers burned the Temple to the ground and any structures left standing where taken down to reveal any gold that was present, to even the stones leading to the Temple structure. Understand that the Roman soldiers were not “Italian” by ethnicity, although they came from “Rome” they were of Middle Easter descent. They were a conglomeration of many cultures that adhered to Roman authority and law. Many within their legions that could have been Arabs or even Persian, or some other race that hated the Jews. Note that the Anti-Christ is called the Assyrian?
“5 And this man(Jesus) shall be the peace, when the Assyrian shall come into our land: and when he shall tread in our palaces, then shall we raise against him seven shepherds, and eight principal men.
6 And they shall waste the land of Assyria with the sword, and the land of Nimrod in the entrances thereof: thus shall he deliver us from the Assyrian, when he cometh into our land, and when he treadeth within our borders..” (Micah 5:5-6)
Jesus will come to Israel’s aid when the Assyrian invades. So, the question for you to consider is, has there ever been a time in history when Jesus has led an army against Assyria to save Israel from an invasion? No, He has not.
What is the implication, then? Since this has never happened in history, the implication is that when Jesus returns, He will defend Israel against the invading Assyrian, or the Antichrist. Why is he called the Assyrian? Well, logic suggests that in order to be called an Assyrian you must come from Assyria. So, where was Assyria and what are the modern-day countries that inhabit this geographic area? If we identify these things, we can know the geographic location of the Antichrist’s kingdom.
The Assyrian Empire, the second Biblical World Kingdom, encompassed Palestine, Lebanon, Syria, Turkey, Jordan, Iran and Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. Notice the glaring relationship between them all? They are all today, Islamic.
THE POLITICAL IMPLICATIONS FOR THE USA AND EUROPE
Note also, that since the failed so called “Arab Spring” that the last “president” so foolishly created has caused terrorism to have gone rampant. For all the dictators that have fallen, that kept the people in check, out of the chaos has risen the likes of ISIS. The purpose and the objective of ISIS or for that matter, Islam in general is to rule the world. But there is one problem, the Western nations of the North American Western Hemisphere. ISIS is reported to be on our border, and has committed acts of violence and bloodshed in various places like San Bernadino, Orlando, Baltimore, Boston and surely there are plans for more.
Now comes the insanity of it all. Refugees from the failed Syrian state of President Assad have all but infiltrated our borders with these people who we don’t know if they are members of ISIS or not. But make no mistake, whether they are or are not terrorist among them, the population that embrace Islam is anathema to our way of life.
Only our current POTUS understands that we must stop illegal immigration that plans are nothing but to destroy us. And to further this insanity, we have allowed tens of thousands of these refugees to enter into our country and the next Democrat that could be elected after Trump’s two terms, if one be so sadly elected, plans to increase that amount by 500%…you heard right….with all the terror that is in the world, the Democrat idiots in Washington D.C. who think they know what is good for us, are inviting our conquerors to come invade our land and take over.
It will be a brutal war for them to finally take over this country and impose Sharia law as the law of the land. That’s where we are headed folks. I believe this will all happen in the Tribulation, after the removal of God’s Chosen Bride at the rapture.
IT IS ALL COMING TOGETHER IN OUR LIFETIME
As began this journey, we began with the foundation stone, a religious order that will spread world-wide. To embrace all religions by one religious leader who the world trains their ears to listen to every word he says. This man will promote a One World Religion with a blending of all religions into one super religion called Chrislam. Again, why Chrislam? Why blend the two together? Short answer: Power!
The concept is likely to be embraced by a few non-fundamentalists on either side of the divide, such as Universalists, Unitarians and maybe some Buddhists. There are Hindus and Shinto faithful who are willing to add Christianity and Islam to their belief spectrum — rejecting that there is any single path to God.
However, Christianity has at its very core that Jesus is the only way to heaven — and that eternal salvation is a gift of grace, earned for mankind by Christ’s crucifixion, shedding His blood and rising from the grave three days later. However, Islam holds the firm view that eternal damnation awaits those who do not earn salvation by submitting to the requirements of the Koran, which describes Jesus as a noteworthy prophet who didn’t really die on the cross.
Right now it is already flourishing in places like Africa. In Nigeria, a “preacher” Shamsuddin Saka seeks to bridge the religious divide. It doesn’t take much to spark religious violence in the West African nation of Nigeria. Just this past weekend, rioting erupted in the town of Bauchi after Muslims parked their cars in front of a church. Bauchi lies along a line between Nigeria’s mainly Muslim north and the Christian south. Tensions in the region often spill over into violence, but one man is trying to bridge the gap. He preaches a liturgy that blends Christianity and Islam.
Saka preaches that Christians and Muslims are both children of Abraham — which is historically accurate, according to both the Bible, the Koran and DNA studies.
Saka was born Muslim, and, the PRI report notes: “it was after returning from a Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca that he was inspired – he says instructed by God – to launch his new ministry: “That was about 22 years ago. I was praying and I [laid] down and the Lord told me, make peace between Christian and Muslim.”
But from what is happening in Africa, and what is the Pope preaching to his Catholic parishioners? it’s the perfect vehicle to bring all religions into a one world religion united and led by one man in the religious affair of the coming One World order, the pope of Rome. Already the pope is wooing the likes of Evangelicals Kenneth Copeland, Kenneth Hagin, and even from reports, Rick Warren to come home to the Catholic Church.
ANTI-CHRIST COMES ON THE SCENE
What unites a people, any people into a cohesive unit? Either in a community, a state, a nation, or thinking on a grand scale, the world? To control the people, you must have something in common, a uniting principle. To gather all the religious orders of the world into one, you must blend the two largest religions into one and have a spokesman that the world will listen to. The pope is not only a religious leader, he is a political leader that nations actually listen to. Accomplish this and you can begin the foundation of controlling the economy and promoting a cashless society, although they may go hand in hand.
Now, is Pope Francis the coming false prophet? Not sure, but I read where his secretary who is named “Pietro”, (can you say Peter the Roman) will be elected when Pope Francis leadership is over upon his death, prophesied to be the last pope, the False Prophet.
If the coming Anti-Christ is indeed an Islamic, then the spokesman of the one world religion will promote him as a leader of the secular world, because in word, the man will embrace this new religion, Chrislam to his own advantage for power and control. The bible says that they will join forces for a temporary amount of time.
This religious personage actively promotes worship of the Beast and does miracles in the context of religion to deceive people. A woman in the Bible is a symbol of a church organization.
“And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
5 “And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
6And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
7And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.
8The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
9And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.” (Revelation 17:4-8)
Who has killed millions in the name of her religion and drank the blood of saints? Yes, the answer: the Catholic church!!
In Revelation 17, the Woman is controlling the Beast, bringing the worship of the coming Anti-Christ. But even then, she and the Beast are, in fact, antagonists competing against each other. Furthermore, she is heavily involved in politics (influencing kings), manufacturing, shipping, craftsmanship, and merchandising. That has been the focus of the Catholic Church since the Middle Ages.
The Woman indeed has a relationship with the Beast, but she is not part of the politics, economics, or military of the Beast. She and the Beast are separate entities, even though both are part of the overall one world system. The Catholic Church has always been part of the Beast, influencing it from within. Conversely, the Woman is portrayed as an external influence, competing with, riding, and at some point exercising control of the Beast.
WHEN WILL THIS BE FINALLY COMPLETE
The plans are already in the works, using the false narrative of “Climate Change”. The U.N. has drawn up plans that the whole world will follow ultimately. Their spokesman at this time, is the pope in Rome. But the final draft and implementation will not be complete until the Anti-Christ is actually revealed and I am a firm believer that we won’t even see who the man is. We may have a good idea, but to see Chrislam flourish all over the world, the economy being controlled by a central government, and the Anti-Christ to come to the forefront of the poltical, secular world will not happen until the Church is removed from this earth.
We may see the signs of it coming clearer and clearer and we MAY, I say MAY see what men will attempt to put in place as a One World system before Christ comes for His Church, but most all of this will happen when the Holy Spirit is removed from His fullness found in His people who occupy the true Church of blood born and washed Christians bought and paid for by our Lord Jesus Christ.
6” And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
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:
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” (2nd Thessalonians 2:6-12)
My friend, you are seeing the beginning of the coming New World order…it begins with economic and religious underpinnings that must be in place, before the Anti-Christ can be revealed and dominates the world. With the false prophet scheming and using false miracles to convince the masses that a “False Christ” has indeed arrived, be he proclaimed as the Mahdi of Islam, or deceptive adherent to any religion, either Christian, Muslim, or Chrislam, he will worship none of them, because he advances only his agenda and his complete control of the world. And both aspects of each system are working feverishly to bring it to pass.
36 “And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.
37 Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.
38 But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.
39T hus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain.” (Daniel 11:36-39)
I have spoken on this subject many times, but warnings must abound as the time grows closer to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. As Paul warned in 2nd Thessalonians about
“he will let will let, till HE be taken out of the way”,
God can send His Son at any moment in time. I have believed it will be on a certain day of the Feast days of the Lord in some future year, per many sermons on the subject, but God is sovereign, and can do His own will and His plans are perfect. Should you be so foolish to stand by and see the moral and economic collapse of this nation, and the world around you, and not think “it can’t last this way much longer”, then you play Russian Roulette with your very soul.
Jesus could come at any moment in time and your chance of being found washed in His blood and forgiven your sins, this side of the Tribulation will just have become exponentially smaller. I wouldn’t take the chance for “all the tea in China”. Your soul is that important, as it will live forever, either in God’s presence, or banished from His sight to be tormented for all eternity. The tribulation is right at the door. But before that happens, our Lord Jesus Christ will sound a trumpet cry:
51 “Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
52, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
53, For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal mustput on immortality.
54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
55O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?” (1st Corinthians 15:51-55)
Don’t be caught unaware. There is no excuse for denying what has been taught as long as I’ve been alive and before…all have heard. Some believed, some have rejected the free gift of salvation that is there for the asking.
“For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation. (2nd Corinthians 6:2)
Take that offering of the free gift of God, before your chance during the Age of Grace comes to a final close. To receive Jesus in the coming Tribulation, most likely will mean your death by that terrible way to die…decapitation after unspeakable torture. I pray you will heed the warning and the call to repentance. In Jesus Name.
8 “But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:8-13)
