The Devil's Messiah
Revelation 13:4, “And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast?”
Satan is preparing the masses of the world to embrace the soon coming Antichrist, the Devil's Messiah. The world will sinfully look to the Antichrist as a Messiah to save them from all their economic and social woes.
Revelation 13:4 teaches that the Dragon [Satan] gives power to the Beast [the Antichrist]. So we see the Dragon, the Antichrist and the False Prophet (Revelation 16:13).
The Bible says that the wicked world will worship the Antichrist. We read in Daniel 11:36-39 that the Antichrist will seek the worship of the world, regarding neither the God of the Bible, nor any other god . . .
“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. 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. 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. Thus 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.”
The “god of forces” refers to the god of New Age, which teaches that God is merely an energy force that permeates the universe, composing all things, and can be manipulated through meditation to become gods ourselves. Anytime you hear someone talking about spiritual matters without quoting Scriptures, run! Anyone who speaks of God as being energy, a life force or the power within, they're a New Ager. The God of the Bible is a Person.
Speaking of the Devil's Messiah, it is interesting to note that most Jews today are followers of Judaism—a false religion which denies that Jesus is the Christ (the Messiah). In response to the unbelief of the Jews in His own time, Jesus said that Abraham rejoiced to see His coming... John 8:56, “Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day: and He saw it, and was glad.” Yet the Jews rejected Jesus and had Him crucified. Judaizers today, just as 2,000 years ago, deny that Jesus is the Messiah, and they claim they are still looking for a Messiah... they will follow the Antichrist. Judaism teaches that the Messiah has not yet come. From reading their own writings, everything that the Jews are anticipating in their coming Messiah fits the Biblical description of the Antichrist. The Jews who reject Jesus Christ today, who are still looking for their Messiah, are beguiled and will blindly follow the Antichrist.
As evidence of this claim, consider that the Antichrist will declare himself to be god from THE TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM! 2nd Thessalonians 2:4, “Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.” Matthew 24:15 calls this event THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION. Daniel prophesied of this event in Daniel 11:36-39. The Antichrist will be the Devil's Messiah, sought by Judaizers today.
The reception of Barack Obama as U.S. President has been nothing less than celebrity worship. It is disturbing to see public school children singing praises to Obama. Another video goes, “Obama be thy name!” Children are being taught to sing praises to Obama. I say this respectfully, for I believe that Christians ought to respect the Office of the Presidency, regardless of how we may feel about any particular candidate. The Bible teaches for believers to pray for their government leaders (1st Timothy 2:1-2). At the same time, our Bill of Rights outlines our God-given rights. The First Amendment grants us the legal freedoms of speech, press, religion, peaceful assembly and petition of government. It is our patriotic duty to defend our nation against tyranny of all forms. So, while we daily pray for our nation's leaders, we also speak out as concerned Americans against the blatant treason being committed in Washington D.C.
Sadly, patriotism in America is for the most part, gone. With all the illegal immigrants, outsourcing of American jobs to foreign labor, massive reckless deficit spending and the lying propaganda surrounding the 911 attacks, patriotism means little any more. It is tragic. We have lost our nation to global control. It is the Tower of Babel all over again, when men united together against God. Governor Jesse Ventura said is right, “We must not go along to get along.”
Consider the following statement by the prominent Belgian diplomat and astute European strategist, Paul Henry Spack . . .
“We do not want another committee. We have too many already. What we want is a man of sufficient stature to hold the allegiance of all people and to lift us out of the economic morass into which we are sinking. Send us such a man be he god or devil, we will receive him.”
That man of sin is coming, as soon as the world is prepared to receive him. I believe that time is here and the Lord's return is imminent. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
