The Antichrist

August 15, 2007

“For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect.” – Matthew 24:24

Who’s the most charismatic leader you’ve ever seen – past or present? Is it a political leader, religious leader, or a leader in academia? Leaders can be a tremendous influence for good or evil.

The Bible talks about a great leader who will burst onto the world scene. He will appear to be good, seeking to bring unity and peace to the world. He will focus on the desire for economic prosperity. He will be an extraordinarily brilliant and gifted leader who will cause the world to be in awe.

But don’t be led astray. The Bible calls him the Antichrist. He will be incredibly attractive and charismatic, but all about himself. He will be the embodiment of evil, but appear to be good. He will be an imposter and counterfeit of the one Man who will ultimately bring true peace–Jesus Christ. That’s why this man is called the Antichrist. Study what the Bible says about the contrast of thennAntichrist and Jesus. Believe, and don’t be deceived.
