Title: Characteristics of Antichrist
Post by: Zak Roy Yoballa on July 21, 2005, 08:59:42 am
I don't think so but I'm not 100% sure.  Things are bad now but far from the total depths of depraivity mankind is capable of.  It is my opinion that Satan will wait until mankind is more under his sway before the antichrist will come.

I think we've been in the 'end times' for many years, and will be for many more.  It's going to get much much worse.

The Bible says that only God knows when the end will come; even Jesus doesn't know.

So I don't see how people can presume to guess.

According to what I know I feel around 20 years time before it gets serious, I just want to make sure I am prepared. If I was sent here to follow Jesus in his second coming, I want to know what I'm doing.

End times or not, each of us may die with in the next hour and we should live like it is our last day.  If you are not sure about where you are going when you die "...I tell you, now is the time of God's favor, now is the day of salvation." 2 Corinthians 6:2.  It's not to late as long as there is life left in you.  The anti-christ may or may not be but it shouldn't affect how you live and who you serve.

Characteristics of Anti-Christ in the words of Scripture.

His moral characteristics are these.
Isaiah 14: 14 . . He shall say in his heart, I will be like the Most High.
Dan. 8: 25 . . He shall stand up against the Prince of princes.
Dan. 11: 36 . . He shall exalt himself above every god.
2 Thess. 2: 4 . . He shall exalt himself " above all that is called God."
2 Thess. 2: 4 . He shall show himself that he is God.
1 John 2: 22 . . He shall deny both the Father and the Son.
Rev. 13: 6 . . He shall open his mouth in blasphemy against God.
Rev. 17: 3 . . He shall be full of names of blasphemy.

The extent of his power.
Isaiah 14: 16 . . He shall make the earth to tremble, and shall shake kingdoms.
Isaiah 14: 17 . . He shall make the world as a wilderness.
Dan. 7: 25 . . Times and laws shall be given into his hand.
Dan. 8: 9 . . He shall wax exceeding great.
Dan. 8: 24 .. His power shall be mighty.... He shall destroy wonderfully.
Dan. 11: 36 . . He shall do according to his will
Dan. 11: 40 . . He shall enter into the countries and overflow.
Dan. 11: 42 . He shall stretch forth his hand upon the countries.

Rev. 13: 12 . . He that ministereth in his presence shall do great wonders, so that he shall make fire come down from heaven on the earth, in the sight of men, and shall deceive them that dwell upon the earth by means of these miracles which he shall have power to do.
Rev. 13: 15 . . He shall have power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

Rev. 17: 8 . All whose names are not written in the book of life shall wonder.

The place of his manifestation in blasphemy.
Isaiah 14: 13 . . He will sit on the mount of the congregation, on the sides of the north.
Dan. 8: 11 . . He will take away the daily sacrifice.
Dan. 11: 45 . . He will plant the tabernacles of his palace on the glorious holy mountain.

These are his principal names in the Old Testament, where he is always referred to in connection with the Jews.

In Isaiah also he is called the Wicked One-"By the breath of his lips He (the Lord) shall slay the Wicked One." Isaiah 11 (quoted in 2 Thess. 2) In John he is called "the Antichrist," in his special character of opposition to Christ. In the Revelation he is called the Beast, as denoting his moral estimate in the sight of Heaven.

He will be destroyed by no mere human agency.
Dan. 8: 25 . . He shall be broken without hand.
Isaiah 11: 4 . . . The Lord with the breath of his lips shall slay the wicked one.
2 Thess. 2: 8 . . The Lord shall consume him with the breath of his lips, and with the brightness of his coming
Rev. 19: 15, 20. When He cometh forth who shall tread the ó wine-press of wrath, the Beast is taken, and cast alive into the lake of fire.

The following connections may also be found useful:

8: 25 . . . By peace he shall destroy many.
9: 27 . . . He (the Prince that shall come) shall confirm the covenant with many.
8: 11 . . . He shall take away the daily sacrifice.
9: 27 . . . He shall cause the sacrifice to cease.
8: 19 . . . He shall prosper in the latter end of the indignation.
9: 27 . . . . . . . . till that determined is poured on the desolator.

Between Dan. 8 and 11.
8: 9 .... He waxes great towards the pleasant land.
11: 41 He enters into the glorious land.
8: 17 At the time of the end shall be the vision.
9: 40, 41 . . . At the time of the end shall he enter.
8: 19, 24 . . . He prospers in the last end of the indignation.
11: 36 . . . . . He shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished.

Between Dan. 7 and 11.
7: 25 He shall speak great words against the Most High.
11: 36.... He shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods.

If the Christian God is so powerful and loving why would He allow such an entity into the world He created?

Title: Characteristics of Antichrist
Post by: Devious Viper on August 24, 2005, 07:00:52 am
The Bible ends with an account of Antichrist and Satanís final doom. From beginning to end, Satanís (and therefore Antichrist's) existence, His fall, and His opposition to God are all a part of Godís eternal plan for His creation.

The inclusion of Satan in Godís plan raises a problem which must be considered. Simply stated: How is it that a holy God would purpose the existence of Satan, and therefore of sin?

This question can only be answered in relation to the purpose for which the plan was designed. The answer is given early in the Bible in the Book of Exodus. The text which answers the question follows immediately after Israelís ďfallĒ in the wilderness, while Moses was on the mountain with God. Read Exodus 33, 34.

Satanís creation, fall, and opposition was all included in Godís plan for creation. Satanís fall and opposition to God is the instrument by which man fell (Genesis 3). Satanís existence must be understood in the light of sin and also of Godís plan. Godís plan is to demonstrate His glory. Exodus 33:17--34:7 teaches that Godís glory is displayed in the way God deals with sin. For some, God deals graciously, forgiving them of their sins; for others, God punishes them for their sins. Apart from the existence of sin, the demonstration of Godís glory would not have been possible in its fullest form. Sin is the occasion for Godís glory, and thus He has included it in His plan, along with Satan, its promoter.

The Bible has been written to increase our depth perception--our ability to look behind the immediate source of circumstances to see God, the ultimate source. The kings of Babylon and Tyre were those who opposed God and His people. Behind these men was Satan, the opposer. But behind Satan is a holy, righteous, and compassionate God, who is causing all things to work together for His glory and the good of His children.

Put simply, Satan/Antichrist are the indirect and necessary sources of the "rain" that washes the scum off the streets :?

We will 'see', False-Christí(s) rising to power very soon. Just which one will, stand for all authority more then the other, is more of an important issue then this entire Antichrist debate.

Everyone can guess on who will become the antichrist, but those who are not close to the antichrist will not know until it is to late. Like some say King Juan Carlos of Spain will become the antichrist, and I am sure their are many others who have been said will be the antichrist.

To say Bush is in the War to help the oppressed and bring Demoracy to the people of Iraq is preposterous. He is there to gain control of the oil and get a foothold in the middle east. Do you think he could've gone to war without the World Trade Center brought down? ( May they Rest in Peace)  Curious how a nation like ours let such a tragedy come to pass. Humm?
I belive the people of the world were decieved by those who are to gain off this Dasterdly Plot.
It is a shame one could concieve such and idea, especially about the ones we trust to protect us. We the People are nothing to them but "Considerible Losses" or sheep to be slaughtered as necessity depicts.

Post by: prezhorusin04 on June 21, 2006, 11:43:47 pm
So many good thoughts in this thread. :-)

Just to speak a couple ideas from me in relation to all of this. The characteristics of the antichrist might as well be called "Anti-Christ Inorporated", as there is no one man who is going to come forward as that Great Beast. Even if we say it's 'The Black Pope', who is the leader of the Jesuit Order/Society of Jesus, or the Pope, The President, Bin Laden, or some unnamed masked man wearing a cape, they will all be run and manipulated by a corporate/religious element that is controlling things behind the scenes...

Just as Hitler was influenced by forces behind the scenes to help bring him into the focal power of Germany, or Nepoleon, or even Adam Weishaupt in the founding of the Illuminati. They all had poltical and religious elements at work who purposefully brought them into power. If JESUS CHRIST was a real man, i'm almost convinced that he too was groomed and put into place to play the part of the Messiah.

We have to try and make ourselves as aware as possible to what we are really up against, and not be afraid to stand opposed to those things which we deem to be corrupt and full of hate and evil... Do not fear the Beast, nor to fight, in your own way, against its deception... The Beast is murder, the beast is envy, greed, malice and venom.. We must face the beast head on, to our full potential, and let fate decide the outcome.........

Venom can heal.. Resist not evil... The war is one between day and night. They are both the same. Yet there are elements which must be expelled, waste which must be discharged. True evil must be disposed of from the fabric of our world, and this can be done without nuclear war and a never ending onslaught of propaganda..

Evil is a lesson to be learned...  We must discover our divine nature, and realize that we are inherently good beings, even if we enjoy horror movies and entertainment..... :-P

Ultimately, love brings forth love, and hate brings forth hate....

May the goodness in all of us be blessed and blossom into our true selves.

This whole bush bashing is all outdated. It holds no water anymore then world leaders. We should be looking at religious movments not Satanic swine.

 I found at leat One of the False-Messiahs. There is actually allot of info on this guy.

    M A I T R E Y A
(better read then said)

Maitrya likes to keep things low profile when it comes to politics. iI wonder if he will aid are current establishment for future, False Messiahs. like his ancestor Nadir Shah, expected to return to Iran in a few years.

Maitreya is the God-Head of Zoroastrian Mithra, a god of contracts associated with the Sun. He is said to be THE Expected One. He also points out the Bible as a reference for him as, 'The Seventh Seal', spoken in The Book Of Revelations.

Zoroastrian ideas influenced the cult of Maitreya, such as expectations of a heavenly helper, the need to express for positive righteousness, the future millennium and Universal Salvation. The best known religious movementís is, Share International, which allows Maitreya to gain authority over all Religions, Denominations, Cects and Occults. He cliams that he has already been present in the world for about 20 years in America.

His work is cut out for him, utilizing every sector of the internet to canapult his beliefs.
His teachings are vary influential for any that listen to him. His voice is most calming and will endue a hypnotic trance to your ears. You may find yourself listening without keeping track of time as you intently listen to every work that is spoken.

His Movement is growing at a rapid pass, and may soon inspire political intervention in times of Tribulation.

This man is for real...

Many man in history, to this day, tried to (and some of them managed that very well) prove themselves as The New Mesiah , taking all earthly pssesions, and even life of their followers.
Many of them come with the Signs of God , and also, they speak with great passion about the righteous and the just. The Book of Revelation speaks of man in white, they will come in the name of Jesus. They stir a lot of dust, politicaly, and among religeus population. They heal, they dissapear for a while, just to come back and speak of the Truth more fearcelly. Some other just sit motionless, wordless, trying to become, if they already are not, God himself.

What is ....this....Truth they like to talk about?
Is not the main characteristic of A  to delude, like David Copperfield-Blaine way, to look like, sound like, and smell like the son of God? The thing is, these are the days of technology and sciense, people now know that movie effects are only that, and they also know that man didnt land on the moon. It would be much harder to make them really believe...
 So what you say about that?  :focus:

Title: The Lawless One
Post by: Devious Viper on July 15, 2006, 04:13:23 am
Soon..?

A man who has been waiting in the wings will come upon the world's stage and the final seven years of life as we know it will begin. This time is known as the "Great Tribulation". This man will at first seem to be the answer to all the world's problems. He will, virtually at a stroke, solve many of the dilemma's and troubling issues facing mankind , including doing what no other person could do: he will bring peace to the Middle-East, he will guarantee for a period of seven years a treaty between Israel and its neighbors. All will seem well, but exactly 3 1/2 years into this seven year treaty the door will open and reveal this man for what he truly is, the Antichrist.

"And the lawless one will be revealed who the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming, that is the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. And for this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they might believe what is false, in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness."     (2Thessalonians 2:9-12)
Title: What Does "Antichrist" Mean?
Post by: Devious Viper on July 15, 2006, 04:18:57 am
An·ti·christ
Pronunciation: 'an-ti-"krIst, -"tI-
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle English anticrist, from Old English & Late Latin; Old English antecrist, from Late Latin Antichristus, from Greek Antichristos, from anti- + Christos Christ
Date: before 12th century
1 : one who denies or opposes Christ; specifically : a great antagonist expected to fill the world with wickedness but to be conquered forever by Christ at his second coming 
2 : a false Christ


As the Word of God is actually written in Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic, lets look at the original manuscript definition of antichrist in the Greek:

antichristos:  instead-of Christ, opposite of Christ

An examination of the Greek work 'antichristos' reveals that antichrist can be someone who is "instead-of" Christ, or a "substitute" for Christ.  By this definition, anyone who sets themselves up as a 'savior' type of man is a type of antichrist (i.e. Hitler, Napoleon, Alexander, etc.).  Therefore the correct English translation for antichristos should be 'instead-of-Christ' or 'play-Christ' (i.e. as a play-actor).  Someone who comes in the Holy name of Christ but instead does unchristian acts would fit the definition also as a 'instead of Christ'.  (i.e. Jim Jones, David Koresh, etc.)

The word "antichrist" appears in just three passages in the Bible (in the New Testament letters known as 1 John and 2 John); it does not appear at all in the Book of Revelation. Nevertheless, the idea of an Antichrist is central to the apocalyptic world view that sees human history as a struggle between God and Satan for the fate of mankind.

According to the Bible prophesies of the End Time, the Antichrist will act as Satan's chief agent on earth during this period. The Antichrist will forge a one-world government through promises of peace. But when Jesus Christ returns, he will expose the Antichrist as an impostor, defeat him in the battle of Armageddon, and reign with the Christian martyrs for a thousand years on earth.

This antichrist  will come on the scene appearing to have all the answers. He won't have horns and a pitch fork but instead he will probably be a very charismatic,  attractive world leader... at first anyway. But he has an agenda. Before he reveals his true colors he will deceive many.

Intelligent, Imposing and Boastful:

"Then I wanted to know the true meaning of the fourth beast, which was different from all the others and most terrifying, with its iron teeth and bronze claws--the beast that crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left." Daniel 7:20

Exalts and Magnifies himself above all other gods:

"The king will do as he pleases. He will exalt and magnify himself above every god and will say unheard-of things against the God of gods. He will be successful until the time of wrath is completed, for what has been determined must take place." Daniel 11:36

No Respect for the God of his ancestors, nor have any affection or desire for women:

"He shall regard neither the God of his fathers nor the desire of women, nor regard any god; for he shall exalt himself above them all." Daniel 11:37

Bestows great honors, wealth, precious gems and the finest indulgences upon a God his ancestors did not know, a God of 'Fortresses': 


"Instead of them, he will honor a god of fortresses; a god unknown to his fathers he will honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and costly gifts."           Daniel 11:38

Rules with great power and authority:

"Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority." Revelation 13:2

Promotes a sense of Peace and Security, while at the same time, through great Plotting, Trickery and Intrigue,  seizes Kingdoms:

"He will be succeeded by a contemptible person who has not been given the honor of royalty. He will invade the kingdom when its people feel secure, and he will seize it through intrigue."          Daniel 11:21

Cunning, Deceitful, and Powerful:

"Through his cunning He shall cause deceit to prosper under his rule; And he shall exalt himself in his heart. He shall destroy many in their prosperity. He shall even rise against the Prince of princes; But he shall be broken without human means."  Daniel 8:25

"Through his cunning He shall cause deceit to prosper under his rule; And he shall exalt himself in his heart. He shall destroy many in their prosperity. He shall even rise against the Prince of princes; But he shall be broken without human means." Revelation 13:17

"Here now is the man who did not make God his stronghold but trusted in his great wealth and grew strong by destroying others!"      Psalms 52:7

"By your wisdom and understanding you have gained wealth for yourself and amassed gold and silver in your treasuries. By your great skill in trading you have increased your wealth, and because of your wealth your heart has grown proud." Ezekiel 28:4-5

Strong and Forceful military leader:

"He will become very strong, but not by his own power. He will cause astounding devastation and will succeed in whatever he does. He will destroy the mighty men and the holy people." Daniel 8:24

"I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a bow, and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest." Revelation 6:2

"Men worshiped the dragon because he had given authority to the beast, and they also worshiped the beast and asked, "Who is like the beast? Who can make war against him?"   Revelation 13:4

Powerful leader:

"For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled." Revelation 17:17

Becomes the ultimate religious leader, becomes all things to all religions and proclaim to be God himself:

"He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God's temple, proclaiming himself to be God."               2 Thessalonians 2:4

"One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed. The whole world was astonished and followed the beast." Revelation 13:3

"Because of the signs he was given power to do on behalf of the first beast, he deceived the inhabitants of the earth. He ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. He was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that it could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed."           Revelation 13:14-15
Title: Names of Antichrist
Post by: Devious Viper on July 15, 2006, 04:35:34 am
The Antichrist has 33 titles in the Old Testament and 13 in the New Testament. One of these, The Prince That Shall Come, comes from Daniel 9:26-27 in which the people of the Prince that shall come would destroy the city and the sanctuary (Jerusalem). The fulfillment occurred in history when the Roman legions under Titus Vespasian destroyed Jerusalem and the Temple in 70 A.D.

This reflexive reference to the Romans in Daniel 9:26 is one of several reasons why most Bible scholars view the future Prince that shall come as a Roman, or European.

The Bible predicts two one world leaders or Antichrists who will rule the entire world (Rev 13, Dan 7:8, 11, 23). One will be the main leader, or the beast, while the other, the false prophet, will perform miracles and force the world to worship the beast and his image.

The false prophet, whose number is 666, will enforce the mark, which could be a tattoo or computer chip or some other new technology. It could even be enacted through some type of supernatural means, since they will be performing miracles.

The antichrist or beast as he will become to be known as, goes by many titles:

I've re-opened the polling. Please register a vote.

I believe the question is a valid one because the events of the world, as they relate to the fulfillment of prophecy, should cause everyone to keep watch. It is true that there has never been a time in history in which the world was as ready as it is now to usher in the end. Is the Antichrist alive today?
If you ask me

"Could the Antichrist be alive already?"

the answer must be

"Absolutely."

I believe that this anti-Christ will be the Devil, so I could also add. What do others think?

- Satan
- The Devil
- Lucifer
- Iblis
- Shaytan

Satan is omnipresent,...he was once a God. I don't think that Satan ever needed to pop up one day, and say 'Here I AM'...

Satan needs his right hand man, to do his bidding for him. I think he will be watching over the Antichrist and fulfill his rise to power.

The Antichrist has 33 titles in the Old Testament and 13 in the New Testament. One of these, The Prince That Shall Come, comes from Daniel 9:26-27 in which the people of the Prince that shall come would destroy the city and the sanctuary (Jerusalem). The fulfillment occurred in history when the Roman legions under Titus Vespasian destroyed Jerusalem and the Temple in 70 A.D.

how can anyone know he's the antichrist?

Satan was never G-d, G-d created Satan and he was his most shiny angel until he decided that he should be G-d. Dont state things that are in no case truth.

And btw Satan is Lucifer.

Actually, Lucifer was the name of the Roman god of fire and has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with Satan. I'm afraid some mediavel  Christian scholars took liberties with the names of certain proto-Christian deities when giving vent to their loathing for the Devil.

I'd have to disagree,

Isaiah 14:12 (King James Version)

 12How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

That passage refers to a toppled Baybolonian king that oppressed the Children Of Israel, and has nothing to do with the Devil. I'm afraid that this misconception has penetrated the minds of mainstream Christians so deeply that Lucifer is now synomnious with Satan.

So, the Isaiah passage does not connect, either historically or theologically, with the New Testament passages about the devil or the satan. By listening to the Old Testament passage on its own terms within its own context, we discover that Lucifer is not an Old Testament name for the devil or the satan. The passage in Isaiah 14:12-17 is directed at the downfall of the arrogant Babylonian rulers who took Israel into exile. By beginning with the New Testament, by making assumptions not supported by a closer examination of Scripture itself, and by using external theological categories as a lens through which to read Scripture, we may end up badly misreading Isaiah.

Your claim seems to have some Christian circles too!  This is the final paragraph of a lengthy article out of a Wesly web-site. 

Let this be a lessen to all stubborn people out there that you need to approach topics with opinions based on facts.  And then challenge your facts to see if they are valid. 

Thanks Maggs for the insight, I'm continueing to look into this.

I believe that he is alive, and walking the Earth. BUT, I think that he is playing low in a way, bringing people into his way of thinking, but slowly. There are so many signs the world is going to end soon, and of course once that time comes we shall think of now as heaven. Anway, most people are on his side and they aren't gonna change. For those of you who have read the Bible I think it mentions about the world trying to become one and join, which is happening, also that there are 10 stages or something like that and when we get to the 10th stage the end is drastically near, and the description for that stage is unbelievably like what we are being subjected to living in.

Anyway, that's just my opinion.

I don't think the anti-christ is living now, and even if he is, he is useless untill Satan is realeased from the abyss were the 1.000 years punishment is ended. Of course God's year is larger than the human's year. Anyways when Satan is realeased he will find the anti-christ and will give him great power ( The most he can) he will make him do wonders, and will give him the power to ruleover the world. 2/3 of the world will fall for him.

I think we should strengthen our beliefs, now that we know that the end is near.

I had a dream about the Abyss. I tryed to warn the people, but they looked at me as on a madman, not even worthy of bothering, and they all went to the edge, like the bloody tourists, to watch it and admire. But they knew nothing of the nature of the entity below, and its nature was really scary, and cold, and full of hate. Not even a glimpse of remorce...

But the first guardian of the creature told me that it is written that entity must brake the seal and come right out with the help of second guardian, who will die in doing so.

Strange dream...




but maybe Im offtopic

I don't think any guardian will open the abyss, only an angel with the key after the punishment passes. You're dream must mean something else.
Maybe the abyss symbolises evil, the 1st guardian is guidance and the second guardian is unleashing evil!!.  :roll:
what a bizzare idea of mine  :-D

Perhaps.  It may be the leader of a counter cultural movement rather than government official.  Perhaps it will be a high ranking member of the Christian Church and that is how it causes so many people to move away from the Lord.   My opinion is that it doesn't matter.  Treat each day as if it were your last and continually try to glorify God in everything you do, from the mundane to the majestic.  We don't know who it will be or when it will occur so don't worry about it.  :wink:

A good number of texts have said that the last antichrist will "have the Mark of the Beast". Jow, a LOT of folks are claiming this will be a certain triple digit number; exactly which number depends upon who you talk to. My suggestion to everyone is to step back and think about this:

What is the Beast? He is the Adversary - yes. He is the Prince of Darkness - yes. But these are not his greatest trademark qualities. That particular thing is that he is The Great Deceiver. Above all else, the Beast is a liar, a deceiver of Mammon.

So...if the antichrist is to possess the Mark of the Beast; what mark would that truly be? Why, the ability to deceive the world at large, convincing many of them that he is nothing threatening, but benign and only here to do God's work. Now, many of you here have cable, you have televisions. Can anyone here think of ONE MAN who fits that description?
