But with further evidence accumulated by Michael Burch
, and discussed in our Trump mega-thread in this post
-- it seems undeniable that Donald Trump is self-consciously adopting the role of the Antichrist from the Book of Revelation. Not necessarily that he's the only such individual, but certainly he fits the bill. Do you agree?
That may very well be true. Of course I would have to respond with this scripture,
1 John 2:18
Children, it is the last hour,
and as you have heard that antichrist is coming,
so now many antichrists have come.
Therefore we know that it is the last hour.
There have always been many antichrists ("One who stands in the place of the Messiah"), and now there are even more.
But ultimately there will be a single Antichrist, the global dictator, who willannounce himself as the saviour of this troubled world, but who will quickly reveal his true agenda with draconian and even supernatural powers. He will be the political world ruler.
1 And I saw a beast rising out of the sea,
with ten horns and seven heads, with ten diadems on its horns
and blasphemous names on its heads.
2 And the beast that I saw was like a leopard; its feet were like a bear’s,
and its mouth was like a lion’s mouth.
And to it the dragon gave his power and his throne and great authority.
3 One of its heads seemed to have a mortal wound,
but its mortal wound was healed,
and the whole earth marveled as they followed the beast.
4 And they worshiped the dragon, for he had given his authority to the beast,
and they worshiped the beast, saying,
“Who is like the beast, and who can fight against it?”
5 And the beast was given a mouth uttering haughty and blasphemous words,
and it was allowed to exercise authority for forty-two months.
6 It opened its mouth to utter blasphemies against God,
blaspheming his name and his dwelling,
that is, those who dwell in heaven.
7 Also it was allowed to make war on the saints and to conquer them.
And authority was given it over every tribe and people and language and nation,
8 and all who dwell on earth will worship it,
everyone whose name has not been written before the foundation of the world
in the book of life of the Lamb who was slain.
9 If anyone has an ear, let him hear:
10 If anyone is to be taken captive,
to captivity he goes;
if anyone is to be slain with the sword,
with the sword must he be slain.
The enlightened among us can already see of course that a global dictator is a very bad idea, but somehow, the majority of the world will be taken in by him with his philanthropic-sounding rhetoric and magnanimous gestures. He must by definition be an ethnic Jew.
I just don't think Donald Trump is going to cut it at this level.
Then there is the Second Beast who will be the religious leader, subordinate to the First Beast. Popular consensus is that this will be a Roman Catholic Pope.
11 Then I saw another beast rising out of the earth.
It had two horns like a lamb and it spoke like a dragon.
12 It exercises all the authority of the first beast in its presence,
and makes the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast,
whose mortal wound was healed.
13 It performs great signs,
even making fire come down from heaven to earth in front of people,
14 and by the signs that it is allowed to work in the presence of the beast
it deceives those who dwell on earth,
telling them to make an image for the beast that was wounded by the sword and yet lived.
15 And it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast,
so that the image of the beast might even speak
and might cause those who would not worship the image of the beast
to be slain.
16 Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave,
to be marked on the right hand or the forehead,
17 so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark,
that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name.
18 This calls for wisdom:
let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast,
for it is the number of a man,
and his number is 666.
Indeed, we see the New World Order plan to microchip and micromanage every citizen on earth in this prophecy.
Did they read Revelation 13 and think, "What a good idea!! Let's do that!"
Or was this simply a corollary of the technological advances that evolved through the millennia, which was foreknown in 98 AD?
I think our views on that differ here, but the result will be the same.
What was prophesied in Revelation is already being implemented, in which 9/11, "Climate Change" and the "Covid-19 pandemic" are all pretexts and tools contrived to achieve the satanic Illuminati agenda of global domination and control.
