Skip Heitzig discusses “It seems from Scripture that this Antichrist will pose as a substitute Christ – and it’s quite possible he is alive at this moment.”

Important Takeaways:

  • Why It’s Going To Be So Compelling For The World To Worship The Antichrist
  • The Bible predicts there is a false Christ coming. In 1 John 2:18, he is called the Antichrist. Many typically think the Antichrist is somebody who’s against Jesus. But the prefix anti- can just as easily mean instead of. It seems from Scripture that this Antichrist will pose as a substitute Christ—and it’s quite possible he is alive at this moment.
  • In studying this person, it just makes Jesus even more wonderful. Here’s a quick comparison between the two: the Antichrist is called “the man of sin” (2 Thessalonians 2:3), whereas Jesus is the sinless man. In the Old Testament, the Antichrist is called “the idol shepherd” (Zechariah 11:17, KJV); in John 10, Jesus called Himself “the good shepherd” (v. 11).
  • The Antichrist is depicted in Revelation 13:1 as a beast. And throughout the book, Jesus is referred to as the Lamb.
  • The Antichrist’s supposed death (see Revelation 13:3) will be meant to deceive people; Jesus Christ’s death was to save people. Vastly different.
  • And here’s a haunting verse about the Antichrist: “All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world” (Revelation 13:8). Listen, it’s going to be so compelling for the world to worship the Antichrist. The Bible says, “God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie” (2 Thessalonians 2:11).
  • “When these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near” (Luke 21:28).
  • “Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things.” That escape is what we call the rapture.
  • Is your name written in the Book of Life? I don’t want my name in lights; I want it in the Lamb’s Book of Life. And if yours is not there, or if you’re not sure, be sure today

Donna Howell and Allie Anderson from Sky Watch TV lay out “How modern conditions are priming society to embrace the Beast System right under the nose of a sleeping church”


Important Takeaways:

  • Technology Platform:
    • We often lose sight that our modern conveniences also lay the ground work for a “One-World Everything” scenario, which is how Antichrist will come to power.”
    • He will be seen everywhere, and his words will be understood in every language. (Note: A counterargument can be made for how we can also “go global” with the Gospel in a way that hasn’t been possible before. We realize this. Our aim in this illustration is not to preach against the tools, but to discuss how the evil messenger of the End Times will exploit them.)
  • Vulnerability Platform:
    • Right now, COVID-19 and a string of other upsets through 2020 produced a global desperation for leaders to take us “back to normal” and “repair our cities.” The devastation on the earth in the End Times will be so overwhelming that the fragility of human life will cause people of all walks of life—“small and great, rich and poor, free and bond”—to cooperate with an answer man out of panic, impulse, and fear (Revelation 13:16).
    • When extreme tragedy hits, nonreligious people suddenly get very religious, very fast (9/11 is a major example of this), learning for themselves that the “God-shaped hole in everyone” that the Church talks about is real. When adherents of various faiths are shown the famous miracle worker who “is the one and only God over all world religions,” as he will claim to be, they’ll turn to him for answers to the natural calamities occurring all over the planet. The populations of the world will feel the instability and vulnerability of humanity and vote for, support, follow, and usher in any man who can effectively prove that his political and religious ideas will unite humanity in responding to these catastrophic End-Time events (Matthew 24:11). This moment in time is what Paul described in 2 Thessalonians 2:3: “The apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed” (NASB).
  • The Day All Religions Are Destroyed:
    • Scholars and theologians have long acknowledged that the Harlot of Revelation represents both: a) the city of Babylon…and b) false (pagan) religions of the world
    • …throughout the Bible, when we read that “woman” (God’s people) is unfaithful to God, “she” is a “harlot,” like Gomer, the adulteress God told the prophet Hosea to marry as a symbol of the Israelites’ idolatrous spiritual infidelity (Hosea 1:2ff). Elsewhere, the Apostle Paul clearly demonstrated that God will not “share” His people with the “harlot” called false religion.
    • Therefore, the Harlot of the End Times is understandably interpreted to represent “false religion” and the unholy alliance that false religion has with the “kings” of the One-World Government (Revelation 17:1–2). Upon her very forehead is “a name written, Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots and Abominations of the Earth” (Revelation 17:5).
    • In the beginning, as the Great Tribulation begins to unfold for the first three and a half years…[Daniel 7:25; 12:7; Revelation 12:14]), the Harlot is perched atop the Beast, riding him like a steed
    • Many scholars interpret the woman to be in complete control over the Beast, as if to suggest that Antichrist is not yet powerful enough to take over. Others believe that, due to her seemingly instant downfall, Antichrist will have been strong enough to devour her all along but chooses instead to take advantage of her ability to draw people into false religion…
    • When the Beast is through with the Harlot—when Antichrist has successfully built a “peaceful,” “benevolent” rule with the help of all the “beautiful” religions and philanthropic economics she represents—he will “hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire” (Revelation 17:16) in the second “forty-two-month” (or three-and-a-half year) time slot of his command.
    • Antichrist, in this moment, will “be God,” or so the globe will acknowledge, and it will be as if all the religions of the world from the beginning of time never existed.
  • Woe to Western Laodicea!
    • Why are we railing about Western Christianity, specifically?
    • It’s because we are the world’s center for scriptural training that we are held more accountable for honoring the true Gospel message than are the other geographical areas of the world…and the Word agrees with this conclusion: “But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required” (Luke 12:48).
    • Laodicea was another site of extreme cultural prosperity. Its resident Christians were so spoiled to “the good life” that they overlooked their true responsibilities and were found by their Lord to be spiritually empty (Revelation 3:14–22). To them, following Christ was a popular lifestyle or trend, but where it counted, they didn’t prioritize the Gospel as they had been commissioned. Consider what Christ says to them: “You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing!’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked” (Revelation 3:17; NIV). They were blind to their own spiritual bankruptcy.
    • Fast forward to the book of Revelation and the Laodiceans’ Ephraim-esque reliance on the comforts of their own routines, which propagated a festering apathy in the matter of the Gospel, making them into a then-modern Ephraim. This, the Laodicean compromise, “made their witness to Christ impotent in its effect…they were on the verge of being considered an unbelieving community (cf. also [Revelation] 2:5; 3:1–3), no different from the rest of the pagan world.”
    • Both Ephraim and Laodicea booted the God of the Bible out of their club and raised up a pagan central focus that misdirected their God-appointed purpose—Ephraim to Jeroboam’s calf-worship and Ahab/Jezebel’s Baal-worship, and Laodicea to Roman emperor-worship. Not surprisingly, both were also destroyed—Ephraim to the hands of Assyria and Laodicea to a terrible earthquake.
    • We cannot dine at the same table with Christ and with demons (1 Corinthians 10:21)

Jan Markell points out signs of Bible prophecies taking place: World in Chaos Longs for Peace and Safety

Important Takeaways;

  • We’re in a countdown to the close of the Church Age.
  • The world decided that Israel became the international burdensome stone (Zech. 12:3).
    • Whoever expected this new malady, Israel Derangement Syndrome, in their lifetime? We know that “the Time of Jacob’s Trouble” will be a time of Jew-hatred, but in the Church Age? And this is a hatred of a people based only on identity. A people group that has been a blessing to the world!
  • Israel now longs for peace like never before.
    • She will fall for Mr. Fix-Its peace plan of Daniel 9:27. She just wants to get along with her neighbors, the Arab world, the Muslim world, and all her enemies. She has had 75 years of conflict, preceded by the Holocaust. But with centuries of demonic hatred thrown at her, the Antichrist will be stunning in his deceit of a nation longing for peace and security. He will overwhelm them in his efforts.
  • For a segment of society, love has grown cold.
    • This is a Tribulation reference in Matthew 24, but we’re in a run-up to that. We’re watching large segments of society favor barbarians. Millions have sided with the butchers of Hamas! There are Facebook groups praising Hamas. College campuses know no shame. Jewish students are hiding in secluded areas. And much of the world, and parts of the church, shrug in indifference and seem to enjoy cursing Israel.
  • Gog & Magog further align as they unite against Israel.
    • One periodical reports that “Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan wants to lead the Muslim world against Israel so his country can become a great power.” Russia has pledged to come to Iran’s rescue if Israel attacks. The three power players of Ezekiel 38-39 are Russia, Turkey, and Iran. They are aligning more every day and particularly in 2023.
  • The church is slipping further into apostasy.
    • Many churches revealed theology that has encouraged them to remain silent during Israel’s greatest crisis since the Holocaust. Many openly sided with the so-called Palestinians. The silence of the shepherds has been staggering and devastating to many church members. Too many won’t deal with prophecy, current events, or Israel and won’t take a stand. It’s time to call out evil and to love what and who God loves. Too many churches refuse and this year exposed them.
  • The Jews are coming home in greater numbers and are more open to the gospel.
    • Since the Oct. 7 Hamas attack, there has been a 149% increase in interest to return to Israel from Jewish French citizens and an 81% increase from North American Jews. The trauma of October 7 will leave deep scars on the nation and people forever. The crisis is driving the Jews to seek God like never before in history. Many are leaving secularism, mysticism, and more to call out to the God of the Bible.
  • Strong delusion (II Thess. 2) intensifies and abounds!
    • The Biden Administration continues to give Iran billions. The White House expresses deep concern about Islamophobia, not anti-Semitism! Biden gives hundreds of thousands of dollars to mosques. We have seen young people praise Osama bin Laden in spite of the reality of radical Islam. The solution in the Middle East is a Palestinian state! Everywhere, evil is called good (Is. 5:20) and facts are irrelevant due to the delusions of our day. Only the righteous can see straight!

Jan Markel points out Glorification of The Spirit of the Antichrist in the World today

Darkness Spirit of Anti-Christ

Isaiah 59:19 “when darkness comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against it” 

Important Takeaways:

  • The Spirit Of The Antichrist Inspires The Glorification Of Darkness
  • This is a disheartening article to write, to be honest. We see darkness rising, yet we are called to be salt and light to a decaying world—even if the world pushes back. Let’s try to counter the enemy wherever we see his presence.
  • Some of what I review in this article is not new news to you.
    • The Grammys Lead The Way – This year the Grammys included a literal Satanic performance by Sam Smith and Kim Petras. The song was titled “Unholy”, and included Sam Smith in a red devil costume
    • The Super Bowl Lives Up To Its Reputation – The 2023 Super Bowl halftime lived up to its outrageous reputation. It opened with the filth merchant, Rihanna, descending from the sky, surrounded by what could be described as dancing fallen angels! This generated more complaints than the debacle at the Grammys
    • Commonwealth Games Infect The World – The Commonwealth Games last July in Birmingham, England, had 72 nations participating. It included ritualistic Baal worship in plain sight! But before that, dancers placed fingers on their heads to represent Satanic horns as they were announcing the coming of the horned beast!
      • The ceremony was blatant Luciferian worship. A woman eventually climbed a gigantic bull and the crowd celebrated the woman riding the beast—right out of Revelation 17.
    • Gotthard Base Tunnel Celebrates Goat Man – Gotthard Base Tunnel ceremony of 2016. This was attended by Europe’s most powerful leaders.
      • The Gotthard Tunnel is the world’s longest tunnel project in history. It goes through the Swiss Alps and took 17 years to complete.
        During the eight-hour ceremony, eventually a goat man, or Baphomet, appears and is the star of the show! People bow down to him once again. At the end of the long ceremony, the goat man is declared “king of the world.”
    • SatanCon 2023 – The largest Satanic gathering in history will take place April 28-30 in Boston, MA. Attendees are promised a “weekend of blasphemy and remembrance.”
    • Fox TV production in 2016 and 2017 titled Lucifer, that painted him as a really good guy! Or, rapper Lil Nas X grossing out some of his closest fans by sliding down a pole to hell to give Satan a lap dance. I haven’t described another cable production titled Little Demon. I haven’t described the after-school Satan clubs designed to counter Child Evangelism Bible classes in the schools!
    • We read in the Bible that there will be unspeakable darkness and a great falling away in the last days before Christ returns, but most of us probably never thought we would live to see a day quite like this.
    • The Bible says that “when darkness comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against it” (Isaiah 59:19). The Lord will cause our lives to impact the rampant evil surrounding us! This may be one of the very reasons God has allowed us to be born for such a time as this

Hal Lindsey points out Age of Surveillance is leading to System of the Anti-Christ


1 John 2:18 Children, it is the last hour, and as you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come. Therefore we know that it is the last hour.

  • The Infrastructure Of Antichrist: Living In The Age Of Surveillance
  • We live in the age of surveillance. Cameras (attached to facial recognition systems), satellites, street sensors, license plate readers, drones, credit cards, computers, phones, televisions, “smart” devices, and other technologies watch every move we make. Corporations use this avalanche of data to make money.
  • Alexa is more than an assistant. It is also a massive data vacuum cleaner. It sucks up information about you at unprecedented levels.
  • Samsung admitted that its smart TVs listen to all kinds of things. “Please be aware,” Samsung warned, “that if your spoken words include personal or other sensitive information, that information will be among the data captured and transmitted to a third party through your use of Voice Recognition.”
  • Sadly, the companies that built them were unknowingly building the infrastructure of Antichrist.

Dr. Michael Youssef points out leaders pushing for a One World government

Revelations 13:5,7 “The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise its authority for forty-two months, 7 It was given power to wage war against God’s holy people and to conquer them. And it was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation

Important Takeaways:

  • MICHAEL YOUSSEF: A One-World Government – Utopia or Hell on Earth?
    • The movement toward a one-world government began with a few individuals in the twentieth century.
    • Sir John Boyd Orr, a Scottish doctor and politician
      • In his Nobel acceptance speech, he said, “We are now physically, politically, and economically one world… The absolute national sovereignty of nations is no longer possible. However difficult it may be to bring it about, some form of world government, with agreed international law and means of enforcing the law, is inevitable.”
    • In 1950, James Paul Warburg, chairman of the Council of Foreign Relations, told a subcommittee of the United States Senate,
      • “We shall have world government, whether or not we like it. The question is only whether world government will be achieved by consent or by conquest.”
    • In 2009 Lord Christopher Monckton, said
      • A world government is going to be created. The word “government” actually appears as the first of three purposes of the new entity. The second purpose is the transfer of wealth from the countries of the West to third world countries… And the third purpose of this new entity, this government, is enforcement… [Delegates discussed] setting up a global government so that they could shut down the West, shut down democracy, and bring freedom to an end worldwide.
    • Microsoft’s billionaire founder Bill Gates said he was disappointed that the Copenhagen conference failed in its goal to set up a world government.[Yes …to fight disease]
    • In 2011, the Vatican cardinals issued a document calling for a “world Authority” (with a capital A) to impose controls on the global economy.
    • Revelation 13 tells us, “The beast [the Antichrist] was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise its authority for forty-two months… And it was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation” (Revelation 13:5, 7). The oppressive reign of the Antichrist is the goal toward which the globalists are working — whether they know it or not.

Jeff Kinley inspires us to be informed, equipped for what the Bible prophesies will one day unfold ‘future of the one world government’

Revelation 13:2-4 “2 And the beast that I saw was like a leopard; its feet were like a bear’s, and its mouth was like a lion’s mouth. And to it the dragon gave his power and his throne and great authority. 3 One of its heads seemed to have a mortal wound, but its mortal wound was healed, and the whole earth marveled as they followed the beast. 4 And they worshiped the dragon, for he had given his authority to the beast, and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast, and who can fight against it?”

Important Takeaways:

  • ‘They Want to Reset the World’: End Times Author Breaks Down ‘Great Reset,’ Antichrist, and Future One-World Govt
  • “Things are coming together with a velocity that we’ve not seen in modern times,” Kinley said.
  • Kinley said global elites are intensely focused on wanting to “change the world fundamentally” and explained why the Great Reset is seen as a way to accomplish that goal.
  • “They want to reset the whole planet and basically replace capitalism with socialism, replace nationalism with a one-world government.” …they believe that the world is not working properly, it’s not equitable, it’s not honoring the planet
  • He added, “They want to reset the world … and remake it in their own image.”
  • He appealed to biblical examples to make his point, “When Satan offered Jesus all the kingdoms of the world in Matthew 4 and Luke 4, it’s interesting that Christ — He didn’t deny that Satan had the opportunity or authority to do that,” Kinley said. “Satan has control of these kingdoms of the world right now.”
  • this power will one day go to the antichrist, who will essentially “control everything that goes on in the world” and will eventually “require [people] to worship him

Revelation 13 (Pt. 6)

For some time the world has been moving toward a cashless society. Soon, we are told, even checks will be a part of our economic history as more and more transactions will be done electronically. You know how this works; you probably pay many of your monthly bills now without ever taking a dollar out of your wallet or writing a check. Your computer is set to make the transaction for you in the right amount and on the proper date. It’s easy and convenient. After all, you could lose cash or misplace the checks. Even credit cards will soon be history. With increasing threats of identity theft, the world will be ready and willing to accept some way of maintaining control. All of your per­sonal information, from your bank accounts to your medical records, will be computerized and stored online, perhaps in the cyberspace “cloud.” Continue reading

Revelation 13 (Pt. 5)

He will also use deceptive signs, and he will be able to perform miracles in his efforts to win people’s allegiance to his boss (13:12–15). This is one reason why I so adamantly caution Christians not to be so enamored with miracles. Some Christians run from church to church, town after town, in search of the next big spiritual flash. Yes, our God does indeed do miracles. But be careful. Not every miracle comes from God! In ancient times, false prophets were able to perform miracles, whether real or through some form of chicanery, and in our time, we’ve seen our share of charlatans.

Now, John warned us that the False Prophet is going to wow people with miracles and “great signs,” even making fire come down out of heaven, as the prophet Elijah did and as the two witnesses to come will do in Jerusalem. Many people will be deceived by the False Prophet. This is the spirit of devils working miracles (16:14).

Although he may look and sound like a lamb, the antichrist’s beastly cohort is devious. He will establish a false religion, bringing all the world’s religions together and forming an umbrella religion designed to worship the antichrist (13:14–15), an eclectic, inclusive, tolerant religion. The only religious beliefs that will not be tolerated will be biblical Christianity. Can you not see that this is beginning to happen in the U.S. and throughout the world? Continue reading
