Getting Ready!
 
". . . For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride
 has made herself ready." Rev. 19:7
 
 
 
 The ANTICHRIST. . . What Will He Be Like?
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
    
     In a previous Teaching Letter we wrote about the Antichrist and some of his characteristics and ways that The Word of God tells us aboutTo begin this month, we’d like to recap just a few.  This World Leader will have International approval and He will be a Diplomat that the world will adore and find irresistible. The world will come to a decision to be divided into Ten Divisions with all 240 Nations in it with Ten Rulers or Kings.  Daniel 7:24 (AMP) “And as for the ten horns, out of this kingdom ten kings shall arise; and another shall arise after them, and he shall be different from the former ones, and he shall subdue and put down three kings.” (See also Daniel 7:7-8, Revelation 13:1, Revelation 17:3,7,12,16).  The Antichrist will eventually be the Ruler of these Kingdoms.  The Antichrist will make a Seven Year Contract with the Middle East, Israel and the Nations of the World, but he will break that agreement at Three and Half (3 ½) Years.  Daniel 9:27 (AMP), “And he shall enter into a strong and firm covenant with the many for one week [seven years]. And in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and offering to cease [for the remaining three and one-half years];. . .”
 
     This World Leader or Antichrist will begin his rule through an Economic Crisis.  People will heap treasures for the Last Days thinking that they will be all right with what they will accumulate.  James 5:1,3 (NIV) “Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming upon you . . . You have hoarded wealth in the last days.”  And in Ezekiel 7:19 (KJV) “They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their gold shall be removed: their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the LORD: they shall not satisfy their souls, neither fill their bowels: because it is the stumblingblock of their iniquity.”   the buying of gold and silver is VERY popular today.  It is even offered now that when you purchase gold and silver that you CAN HAVE IT IN YOUR POSSESSION, instead of just having a piece of paper showing your ownership. Yet, we see that there is going to be a time “in the last days” when even gold and silver will have no place.  The silver will be literally thrown into the streets and the gold is removed (removed implies taken away from people)! 
 
     The Economic Crisis that we are seeing and hearing about now in our world will climax and will be used to usher in worldwide desperation, clearing the way for the Antichrist and his leadership.  Adolf Hitler came into power when Germany was bankrupt, and this World Dictator called the Antichrist will not only enter at an Economic Crisis he will need one to validate his reign.  One can see VERY CLEARLY today that the economic state of our World is moving QUICKLY to what we are reading in The Bible to be the backdrop for the Antichrist to arise.
    
     In the Economic Crisis that the Nations will find themselves in, we see that people will rely on the Antichrist and his government for all of their needs in life.  He will become their source for everything!  Revelation 13:16-18 then tells us that no one will be able to buy or sell ANYTHING without a mark that is placed on their bodies that comes from the Antichrist and his regime.  He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, 17 so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name.  18 This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man's number. His number is 666.”  No one will be able to buy or sell food, water, gas, clothing, shoes, toilet paper, medicine, prescriptions, seeds, toiletries, heating needs for winter . . . ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!  And The Word tells us that it’s not only buying, but selling too!  “Merchants” will have to be surrendered to this administration too. 
    
     Remember, Hitler rose to his power during Germany’s financial fall and economic failure; he needed the people TO NEED HIM AND HIS RISING GOVERNMENT FINANCIALLY!  One may even think that some of the financial decisions being made today in our world and nation are strategically intended to do just that . . . bankrupt and cause economic allegiance to the government to which they live.  Make the Financial Situation of America so desolate that the people begin to rely on their Government and its Leader to take care of them.  People looking to their Leader to give them the means and methods to buy their needs and businesses looking to the Leader to supply the resources to sustain and continue their Companies. 
 
 
     Daniel 11:23-24 (NLT) tells us more traits about the Antichrist and his administration, “With deceitful promises, he will make various alliances. He will become strong despite having only a handful of followers. 24 Without warning he will enter the richest areas of the land. Then he will distribute among his followers the plunder and wealth of the rich - something his predecessors had never done."  The Antichrist will “enter the richest areas of land.”  Well, we know that America is that richest land when looking at all the other Nations of the World (at least it has been since its beginning and as of the day that I am writing this.)  And what will the Antichrist’s message be in the “richest areas of the land?”  Distribute among his followers (those for him and his ideas and ways) the plunder and wealth of the rich!  In other words . . .“Distribute the wealth!”  Take from the rich and give to the poor!  Plunder (or take) the wealth of the rich and distribute it out to those who did not earn it or work for it!  Does that sound familiar citizens of the United States of America? 
 
     In addition, Daniel 11:23 tells us that The Antichrist will give out “deceitful promises.”  The word “deceitful” here means lying, untruth and fraudulent.  It’s very interesting that The Bible uses the words “deceitful promises” or lying or untruth promises.  This sounds like what we hear so much about in our society in describing what people in the political realm do.  Some, not all, give the people “promises” that are not “truthful” and are “deceitful.”  Promises about what they intend to do once the people vote for them or if you will, follow them and believe in them.  Even though he does not have many followers, The Bible says the Antichrist will become or grow strong, even in the midst of distributing the wealth of many to others and telling lies.  
 
     A Temple for God’s Holy People will again be built in the Holy Land of Israel.  And The Bible tells us that there will be daily sacrifices being done there again.  For two thousand years there has not been one, today the Mosque of Omar (the Dome of the Rock) sits on top of the holy mountain in Jerusalem.  Daniel 11:31 (CEV) tells us that the Antichrist will then defile that Temple that will be built and use it for his new headquarters, "He will send troops to pollute the temple and the fortress, and he will stop the daily sacrifices. Then he will set up that "Horrible Thing" that causes destruction."  And in 2 Thessalonians 2:4 it reads, He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God's temple, proclaiming himself to be God."  And in Matthew 24:15 (AMP) we read, “So when you see the appalling sacrilege [the abomination that astonishes and makes desolate], spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the Holy Place ¾let the reader take notice and ponder and consider and heed [this].” 
 
     The Antichrist will have a cohort to be with him, The Bible refers to him as the False Prophet.  He will demonstrate signs for the people and will enforce the Antichrist’s ways and wishes.  He will be utilized to force the people, under the Antichrist’s direction and using his power, to take the mark of the Antichrist or Beast.  He will also build a “statue,” an image of the Beast or Antichrist, place it in the Temple and impart life to it and force people to worship it. Revelation 13:12-15 (AMP), He exerts all the power and right of control of the former beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell upon it to exalt and deify the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed, and to worship him.13 He performs great signs (startling miracles), even making fire fall from the sky to the earth in men's sight. 14 And because of the signs (miracles) which he is allowed to perform in the presence of the [first] beast, he deceives those who inhabit the earth, commanding them to erect a statue (an image) in the likeness of the beast who was wounded by the [small] sword and still lived. 15 And he is permitted [also] to impart the breath of life into the beast's image, so that the statue of the beast could actually talk and cause to be put to death those who would not bow down and worship the image of the beast.”  
 
     The Antichrist who will be wounded in the head and it will heal, will demand and the False Prophet will enforce, people to worship Him. This “statue” and image of the Antichrist or Beast will actually talk and cause people to be put to death if they won’t bow down and worship it!  For, "The king will do as he pleases. He will exalt and magnify himself above every god and will say unheard-of things against the God of gods. He will be successful until the time of wrath is completed, for what has been determined must take place. 37 He will show no regard for the gods of his fathers or for the one desired by women, nor will he regard any god, but will exalt himself above them all." (Daniel 11:36-37 (NIV)).  The Antichrist will believe he is God and magnify himself above God!
 
 
     Now, there have been others in history who have surrendered themselves to the spirit of Antichrist and believing that they were a god or a “messiah”  . . . King Nebuchadnezzar, Mao Zedong, Joseph Stalin, Adolph Hitler . . . those who wanted adoration and allegiance to themselves, their ways and their empires, murdered others for their gain and domain.  Still yet another in 168 B.C. the Greek king of Syria, Antiochus Epiphanies (which means “the risen god” ) invaded Israel.  He seized the Jews’ Holy Temple and dedicated it to the worship of a pagan god, Zeus, where a statue was placed and swine were sacrificed on The Holy Altar, making the Temple completely defiled before God.  He ushered a decree that if any Jews would worship the God of Abraham, and not his god, they would be killed. 
 
      Sound familiar?  Both Antiochus Epiphanies and the Antichrist are written about and prophesied about in Daniel Chapter 11!  There are great similarites in their identities.  Both have a “place or office” from Syria (Daniel 11:21(AMP)).  Antiochus Epiphanies (which means “the risen god”) and The Anti-christ which will be a rising god.  Both desecrate The Temple of God.  Both punish by death if people do not worship their ways and abominations set up in the Temples.  Worship and giving God offerings by His People would stop and they were expected to bring gifts and worship to Antiochus and the Antichrist’s statutes placed in the Temple of God.
 
     There is so much more about the Antichrist to cover, yet we must address the most important aspect of this Teaching Letter and that is whether you are right with God or not.  Yes, knowing about the Antichrist and his ways are good, yet not being here to see him in his authority on earth is the greatest!  If you are not ready, if you are not where you need to be with God RIGHT NOW take care of this important matter today!  Pray this prayer with me and mean it with all your heart!  "Lord, Jesus come into my into my life and save me.  Clean me from all unrighteousness and mold me into your likeness.  I confess and make you The Lord, The Boss of My Life.  And please baptize me in Your Holy Spirit.  I believe and receive You Lord, Jesus!  I am saved and shall live my life as a follower of Jesus Christ all the days of my life in Jesus Name, Amen.”  If you said that prayer and meant it, begin living your life for Jesus.  If you need a study Bible let us know here at the Ministry and we will send you one for free!  Also we have a gift we want to send you, again free and all postage paid!  You have just made the most important decision of your life!  Welcome To The Family!  Thank you Covenant Partners and Friends of JCM for bringing this Teaching Letter to others for free.  May your rewards be great in The Kingdom of God in Jesus Name!  Until next month . . .
