5. THE RISE OF THE ANTICHRIST!




One major final sign of the very end that is yet to be fulfilled and that many prophets predicted, is the rise of a powerful One World Government led by a bestial World dictator who will eventually be fully possessed by Satan himself!--The Antichrist! The Bible describes him as a "little horn "with eyes & a mouth speaking great things" that grows up, and as the "son of perdition" and the "Beast!" He will be some kind of superhuman world dictator, with great charisma and speaking ability. The World will eventuallly turn to this false Messiah to save them when their economy crashes and the threat of nuclear war forces them to unite in a One World Government! He will come upon the scene and rise to power on some wave of "world euphoria", when he will save the world from its desperate economic, military and political problems with a "brilliant" 7-year agreement or Holy Covenant for peace in the Middle East, economic redemption and religious freedom.
The Bible even gives some clues about his personal characteristics. The prophet Daniel wrote that the Antichrist "
does not regard the desire of women."--this may imply that he's either celibate or homosexual--that he will have a "fierce countenance" or stern look, that he will be "more stout than his fellows"-more proud and boastful, and that he "understands dark sentences", refering to his possessing supernatural powers!--Of witchcraft? Although he may originally be from Egypt, this Antichrist "King of the North" seems to rise to power in Russia by resurrecting this former economic & military Superpower from the chaos left by the former Soviet Union. The prophet Ezekiel names him as "Gog" the ruler of "Magog" a name that Biblical scholars agree denotes a country or region of peoples to the North of Israel. Many interpret this to mean modern Russia. His power base will eventually also include the leading nations of Europe! After uprooting 3 of its "10 Kings", the Bible says, they will "give their power and strength unto the beast."
At first
the Antichrist will be received as a great hero, the saviour of the World, "the Messiah" by orthodox Jews, "the Mahdi" by some Muslims and even as a "New Christ" by the followers of the New One World Religion, as he confirms the "Holy Covenant" But halfway through his 7-year reign he will break the Covenant, invade Israel and forbid and abolish all traditional religious worship, declaring, "I am God! Fall down and worship me!" 2Thes.2:3,4 At this time he will place an idol, an image of himself in the rebuilt Jewish Temple in Jerusalem, the so-called "Abomination of Desolation" Dan.11:31

"[I would know]... of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spoke very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows. Dan.7:20
"And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up. And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people. "And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand."
Dan.8:23-25
