Thread: Do we witness the anti-Christ?

  1. #1

    Do we witness the anti-Christ?

    A question about the end-times...
    When the anti-Christ comes, are we already whisked up to Heaven?

    Another question: Are all Christians taken up to Heaven before these "challenges"? occur?

    Even if the Rapture were Pre-Trib (which it isn't), there's still a very likely chance that believers would see the Antichrist and be able to ID him for who he is. That seven-year covenant that Daniel 9:26-27 speaks of him "confirming" won't just happen overnight. World leaders don't get together and sign multi-year treaties just off the cuff. I have no doubt it will be in the news in advance and we'll know exactly what's coming.

    When the plain sense of Scripture make sense, seek no other sense.

    Revelation 13:5-7 The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise his authority for forty-two months. He opened his mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven. He was given power to make war against the saints and to conquer them. And he was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation.

    The Revelation depicts "the saints" (i.e., the followers of Christ) as being persecuted. Absolutely nowhere in the Revelation are the Christians depicted as being "whisked away" to heaven prior to the rule of the beast and the persecution he instigates.

    Oh, I think he will be here somewhere before the church is raptured, just that he will not be revealed as such UNTIL after the Church is gone.

    The anti Christ will be the most public figure in history, even more than Jesus with the advances in technology.

    The key question is if there is a rapture and if it happens before the aC is on the scene. I say yes there is a rapture but only after the tribulation and before the wrath of God is poured out, so technically I am a mid-tribulation rapture supporter.

    The key word here is smokescreen, Paul the Apostle made it clear at least he did in my mind that the mystery of iniquity was already at work. That work as I see it was based in Babylon and its culture, the Roman empire satisfied that requirement. The beast as he's called and for good reason was to receive a deadly head wound, that was accomplished as the Roman Empire fell, translated the Babylonian Empire. The next event we were to look for was that head wound being healed, that event has happened in the new Roman Empire that empire is modern day Rome enter the Vatican. They have all the pomp and ceremony that was held to honor Caesar. We now have the new Caesars. The head or the Anti-Christ was to make and agreement with the Jews, he is identified as a man of peace, the Pope satisfies that requirement. Watch this tape and ask yourself if the second coming of Jesus Christ is even at the doors.

    I share your view points

    my God; in Him I will trust (Psa 91:2).

    If you have not accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior, NOW is the time.

    Persevere, pray and be ready for the Return of Christ.

    The way I understand it, the AC will be revealed in the beginning of the Trib. Depending on your pre-, mid- or post trib rapture view point, the true church will be raptured to Heaven. It is therefore possible that you can spend some time with the AC before the Rapture.

    God provides a way when we least expect it take the Egyptians. They worshiped the sun god when the Lord pour out his judgment the Hebrews had safe haven in Goshen not one of the plagues touched them because of Gods promise to keep them safe. When all his wrath is pour out this time why would we even imagine He'd neglect us. We will see his glory shine upon us, trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto our own understanding. When the Hebrews left Egypt He parted the Red Sea.

    All to often we put God in a box so to speak why would we doubt him unless our faith were waining. Being filled with his holy spirit is more than going to church and advertising how righteous we are he's allowed us a gift that cannot be understood in our flesh. God is spirit are they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

    Interesting video. What it shows is that the antichrist is apostate Judaism and the Pope his false prophet.
