As time marches on, we have those elite and wealthy men of this earth who have one prime agenda. That of building the kingdom in which the Antichrist will bear rule over the whole earth.
This comes as no surprise to those who have studied their bibles carefully. It is pointed out in scripture that the wicked one will surely come and will bear rule over those who have been given over to a spirit of strong deception. This strong deception will cover the entire earth in the last days, which has already begun in my opinion. This deceptiveness will be so great that even the most faithful saints will be tempted and tried and many will be found lacking in the end. The tribulation coming upon this earth will devastating.
Who are those building the kingdom of Antichrist?
The bible refers to them in the book of Psalms Chapter 2 verse 1 :
1.Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying,
3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.
5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.
6 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.
God will laugh at these mere men who rage and imagine vain things
It is because of vain men along with their vile imaginations that the Antichrist will be given rule. Mankind who willfully turn their backs to God and his direction are doomed to slip, stumble and fall. Great will be the fall of these men who have left God in order to bear rule over themselves and others.
The love of money is the root of all evil, mammon, usury and all that goes with anything "money" is what these men are involved with. They are the movers and shakers of THIS world. Their hands are in the cookie jars of one and all. Gluttony and greed reign supreme in this world and America is NO exception, but just wait, it will get a lot worse.
Because of greed, power and gluttony, it is going to be the trap that will be used to force the global economic system onto every man. This scheme that includes a trap which many will fall into is the worse kind of snare. Most will decide that when it comes to eating, drinking and being merry, and giving them up, there is no contest. There will be many who will not give up buying, selling and holding a job no matter what God has warned us of in his word. When it comes down to saying no to the upcoming economic slavery system many will not do it. And why won't they? Because money has become their GOD and they value money and what it supplies them with more than their own souls. They will deem their life on this earth of more importance than their eternal life and security.
It is the rulers and kings of this earth, those important people in high places who are the very ones molding and shaping the Antichrist's kingdom to come. I believe their prime agenda is to shape minds and sway opinions, all with the purpose of bringing this ungodly kingdom along with the son of perdition's evil plan to fruition. I think that the plan has been in the making for a long time now. The unsaved soul, the one who has turned his back to God is prideful and wants to be regarded as wise when he really is blind to the ways of God and does not seek to learn God's truth, for he is prideful and arrogant and haughty and is not concerned with what God desires of him, only what he desires for himself, only his own gain.
Who is the Antichrist?
There is a spirit of Antichrist in these last days.
The Antichrist will be a man, born of this earth and not of heaven as Christ was, however, he will be endowed with power from Satan to bear rule over the entire earth during the later half of Great Tribulation period.
What a contrast. The Antichrist will bear rule for a time over the entire earth and those who live in the earth. God however will rule over those in heaven for all eternity, not just for a time, as the Antichrist's limited rule will be. There will be a specific time frame for the Antichrist's rule, not so with Jesus's rule.
The Antichrist is that evil one, the Son of Perdition, he brings with him all deceitfulness and lies that the Apostle Paul spoke of in Thessalonians:
1. Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
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.
5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. 7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
Sometime shortly before Christ comes back, this Antichrist will be revealed and will take rule over the earth. He will enter the temple that will be rebuilt in Jerusalem and will proclaim himself GOD.
By the time the people duped by him understand what has actually happened, it will be too late for them. These people will be seduced and tricked by him. They will believe him to be their "Prince of Peace", their security and their Savior in the days they call upon him for help and a better life for all humanity. But by the time they find him out for the liar and brutal beast that he is, it will be too late. For they have accepted him and his thoughts, ideas and his MARK, they have agreed to be one with him, just as Christ has desired his people to be one with him. But nobody has forced these people to believe the lies of the deceiver, for God has always made a way of escape, his word has gone forth throughout the whole earth so those who have been duped by the world's ways, by the deceitfulness of riches and so on have brought all of the misery upon themselves by REJECTING GOD AND HIS TRUTH.
There are children of the true God and there are children of the Devil just as Christ said when he was on earth:
44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.
46 Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?
47 He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.
