He’s amazing; he’s a genius; he’s the hope of the world, a phenomenon, one‐of‐a‐kind, a god! Who would believe that he’s…the Antichrist? Who could resist him?
It is not an easy task for an ant to challenge an elephant without being trampled down. Nevertheless, this is the precise thing this book has done with the help of the Holy Spirit. It has bypassed academic works delving into the spiritual realm in order to marry scripture with regard to the identification of the Beast of Revelation thirteen. God in His mercy has revealed to humankind His purpose for the world by speaking through dreams and vision. This book therefore attempts to marry the spiritual with the physical by considering the whole counsel of God as revealed in the book of Revelation. Doubtlessly, the three visions are the same; uniting the events in both the spiritual and physical realm since God is sovereign over all things in the world He created. The book also considers the reign of the Antichrist and that of the Beast of revelation in order to isolate their reign. These things have been written in the spiritual realm and must find its fulfilment in the physical.
Discerning and Defeating the Seducer That Binds Believers Today
Author: Sandie Freed
Publisher: Chosen Books
In this thorough, in-depth study, Sandie Freed identifies the demonic system and structures of the dark power that has believers confused, anxious, and lacking in authority: the antichrist spirit. Not a book on the identity of the endtimes Antichrist, this book exposes the demonic spirit that has been prevalent in society since the birth of Christianity and that will eventually animate the end-time ruler the Bible describes. With piercing insight and practical application, Freed helps readers identify and overcome the stronghold that is even now infiltrating thoughts and belief systems. Only then can we find freedome and healing to live the life God intends.
The Antichrist, though mentioned a mere four times in the Bible, and then only obscurely, has exercised a tight hold on popular imagination throughout history. This has been particularly true in the U.S., says author Robert C. Fuller, where Americans have tended to view our nation as uniquely blessed by God--a belief that leaves us especially prone to demonizing our enemies. In Naming the Antichrist, Fuller takes us on a fascinating journey through the dark side of the American religious psyche, from the earliest American colonists right up to contemporary fundamentalists such as Pat Robertson and Hal Lindsey. Fuller begins by offering a brief history of the idea of the Antichrist and its origins in the apocalyptic thought in the Judeo-Christian tradition, and traces the eventual 71Gws how the colonists saw Antichrist personified in native Americans and French Catholics, in Anne Hutchinson, Roger Williams, and the witches of Salem, in the Church of England and the King. He looks at the Second Great Awakening in the early nineteenth century, showing how such prominent Americans as Yale president Timothy Dwight and the Reverend Jedidiah Morse (father of Samuel Morse) saw the work of the Antichrist in phenomena ranging from the French Revolution to Masonry. In the twentieth century, he finds a startling array of hate-mongers--from Gerald Winrod (who vilified Roosevelt as a pawn of the Antichrist) to the Ku Klux Klan--who drew on apocalyptic imagery in their attacks on Jews, Catholics, blacks, socialists, and others. Finally, Fuller considers contemporary fundamentalist writers such as Hal Lindsey (author of The Late Great Planet Earth, with some 19 million copies sold), Mary Stewart Relfe (whose candidates for the Antichrist have included such figures as Henry Kissinger, Pope John Paul II, and Anwar Sadat), and a host of others who have found Antichrist in the sinister guise of the European Economic Community, the National Council of Churches, feminism, New Age religions, and even supermarket barcodes and fibre optics (the latter functioning as "the eye of the Antichrist"). Throughout, Fuller reveals in vivid detail how our unique American obsession with the Antichrist reflects the struggle to understand ourselves--and our enemies--within the mythic context of the battle of absolute good versus absolute evil. From the Scofield Reference Bible (no other book had greater impact on the American Antichrist tradition) to the Scopes Monkey Trial, Fuller provides an informative and often startling look at a thread that weaves persistently throughout American religious and cultural life.
The following demonstration is rested on no narrow basis. Its two postulates, like two posterns, admit us into the edifice, but they are not its foundations. The whole economy of Redemption, and the whole course of History are the broad substructions on which the argument is based and built up; and the author humbly submits that it cannot be overturned, or the conclusion arrived at set aside, without dislocating and shaking the structure of both Revelation and providence. The same line of proof which establishes that Christ is the promised Messiah, conversely applied, establishes that the Roman system is the predicted Apostacy. In the life of Christ we behold the converse of what the Antichrist must be; and in the prophecy of the Antichrist we are shown the converse of what Christ must be, and was. And when we place the Papacy between the two, and compare it with each, we find, on the one hand, that it is the perfect converse of Christ as seen in His life; and, on the other, that it is the perfect image of the Antichrist, as shown in the prophecy if him. We conclude, therefore, that if Jesus of Nazareth be the Christ, the Roman Papacy is the Antichrist.
The myth and accusation that the Catholic Pope will one day be the Antichrist has its roots in religious misconceptions and lack of Biblical end-time understanding. It has contributed greatly to discord and a lack of unity among millions of Christians that have very powerful common ground in Jesus Christ and the Cross of Calvary. Please allow this non-denominational author to show how the scriptures clearly demonstrate the Pope will never become the Antichrist. Come see how much the scripture does have to say about the coming "lawless one" and how his kingdom is being prepared right before our very eyes.
