@ Michael : In 1 John 2,18-19, after mentioning that “the” antichrist shall come, John talks about many antichrists (plural). These anti-christs are to be differentiated from the one coming at the end of time. John is simply saying that some of the “so-called” believers turned out to be not believers at all. Their behaviour were anti Christ.
As a side note, the early believers did not call themselves “Christians”. This name was a derogatory term used by those who opposed the believers and is only used a couple of times in the whole NT. Throughout the whole Bible, the name of those who have been called out is Israel…But that’s another issue altogether!
@christopher “Maybe I should put it this way, the Antichrist's religion is called Diversity Equity and inclusion. Or World Economic Forum. Or New World Order. Or Coexist”.
This is what a lot of people believe/teach (and this is derived from the Roman/Western end time paradigm).
If we approach the Bible within its Middle Eastern context, then we realise that the very armies that will attack Israel in the end time will not do so in the name of “Diversity Equity and inclusion”. They will do so in the name of the god the antichrist worships, that is a god of “fortress” (Daniel 11.38). I guess we could say, it’s the god of jihad.
The Bible calls by their very name all the nations that are set to receive His wrath. Guess what? They all surround Israel and are all Muslim. And unless we are deaf, they have been calling high and load for the destruction of Israel! What more do we need to open our eyes?
Has the communist Chinese puppet (ie, klaus schwab) ever called for the destruction of Israel?
I’m afraid, the World Economic Forum has nothing to do with the end time scenario as laid out in the Bible. The Bible does not teach an antichrist being at the head of a New World Order or a One World Government. His reign will be limited, not its impact, though.
When the antichrist sets his feet in Israel, the most plausible scenario is a repeat of what we saw on the 7th of October all throughout Israel and also all throughout the Western world. Muslims will kill Jews and Christians alike.
If Messiah 2030 timeline is correct, we won’t have to wait too long to see the above happening. As a matter of fact, it has already started. We can see the Muslim beast rising and groaning all around the world in the “free Palestine” protests. This is taking place all around the world literally.
Those who are wise will understand.
Be blessed !
