I was going to title this paper, THE ANTICHRIST AND YOU, A LOVE STORY! But I didn’t think anyone would get it. Even though, man really loves this CARNAL BEASTLY NATURE we call the ANTI-CHRIST. Soooooo, moving on
We’ve seen THE ANTICHRIST in the movies, we’ve heard about him on the news and on TV, mainly on Christian TV, or really bad re-enactments on the History channel. We have been warned of the big scary monster that will stand in the Temple and declare himself to be God. The dreaded evil being that will force all of mankind to get tattoo’s/marks.micro-chips/ etc. etc. of 666 on their hands and their heads, without which man will not be able to buy or sell.
“DON’T TAKE THE MARK OF THE BEAST!!!” the religious scream! He is the Monster of the Abyss, The Antichrist, the Son of Perdition, THE BEAST, THE EVIL ONE that may even trick the Saints to fall down and worship Him! And when this Evil Monster called the AntiChrist is revealed… THEN, our Savior riding a white horse, or a cloud, or lightning, or fifty other different descriptions in scripture (allegory)that tell as to how Christ will come. And when CHRIST COMES, He will destroy this terribly awful creature of Hell with the Brightness of his Glory. — That much is true, but not how most believe.
Okay, let me start this essay by saying, what a bunch of steaming NONSENSE! This ANTICHRIST doctrine is today. I mean, Holy cow people, seriously, the Antichrist should be taken AS LITERALLY as a the woman who lived in a shoe. (Although the later is more realistic)
If anyone actually takes the time to study and find out just what this Abomination of Desolation is, they would find, THERE IS NOTHING TO BE SCARED OF! This ANTICHRIST is merely our CARNAL EGO NATURE and I’m going to show you, why.
If you don’t believe me, read on friends of mine and you’ll find ample proof and valid explanations as to why this spooky campfire story needs to be put to rest already. As God hasn’t given the spirit of FEAR!
Even though, “The AntiChrist and You are friends Until the End”… Meaning, we just don’t want the ANTICHRIST NATURE to go. We cling to it, for we don’t know that the ANTI-CHRIST is actually who the ignorant THINK THEY ARE.
But today, we move onto to maturity and get over these fairy tales. For no other reason than I am sick and tired watching movie, after movie, showing the most perserse images to depict this “antichrist” character, when it should be obvious it is MAN ALONE that is perverse in all MAN’S (CARNAL) ways.
I mean really, watch some of these movies already. “Drag me to Hell” “Hell Raiser””Constantine” oh man the list goes on an on. Then you have those “christian” scary movies, like the hogwash of “Left Behind” not Kirk Cameron’s best work, the Beast, or Mark of the Beast, or blah, blah, blah… Such fear inspiring pieces of cinema and not one of them is even close to true. As I said before, God does not give us the spirit of fear, So fear tactics aren’t from God, but men… And Carnal man is, as Archie Bunker used to say, “Ehhhh MEAT-HEADS”
On Halloween my wife and I watched the most disturbing movie ever, called “Antichrist” starring Willem Defoe, what a horrible and perverse film. I mean sick, sick, sick… I covered my eyes most of the time, hoping there would be some pay off in the end, but of course, there was none that wouldn’t make the average human being vomit! Gross! — I’ll be right back… Have to take a shower after thinking about how wretched that film was…
Okay I’m back:And smelling all Irish Springy fresh.
So let’s dive into this error and pile of yuckiness disguised as Church teaching.
Jesus said, “Nothing that goes INTO the man defiles him, but it is what comes out of Him” – Jesus understood, that IN the heart of man already is every horrible and wretched thing and I don’t mean that week old dominoes pizza you found in the corners of your college dorm room couch and ate…
This is the CARNAL NATURE of Man that is GROSS, and it’s name is ANTICHRIST.
This paper is going to tear apart every one of the scriptures dealing with the topic and hopefully we’ll all put this ANTICHRIST garbage to rest.
I am saddened by the perpetual lies that inspire fear in the lost children of God, and more to the point, I am tired of those who “claim to know God” who preach on the subject as if there is some coming future doom that we must all be scared of. The Future is bright people, so put on those shades! <— Thank you Timbuk3 for that song! “Timbukwho?” the “Church says” … google it!
You see, most go to Man Made Church to be inspired and lifted up. For many times are very hard and they want comfort and hope. They want to know God. The reason is each of us have a hunger inside to know our Father and our TRUE NATURE. We all want to know the “meaning of life”… But you go to some of these churches and they spend weeks teaching on the End Days, the Rapture, Armageddon, the Rise of the Anti-Christ, and people sit there petrified and worry that the world may be coming to an end.
Where is the peace they searched for? Where is their hope?
What these knucklehead fear mongers offer is hope for the future ONLY AFTER DEATH AND DESTRUCTION, or being whisked away. All of which is nonsense. Not a word of it is true. Salvation is not about tomorrow, salvation is for the here and now.
There is a big name pastor, who will remain nameless, this guy goes so far as have HUGE MURALS posted with artist renderings of the “antichrist” and he is sure, that this terrible war and monster is soon to come. He says scripture is speaking of Russia, China, Iran, Iraq, the US and others, as if he has somehow mystically un-coded the bible and now he wants to bring it to the world. And his misled flock sits there and eats it up, just like a teenager who goes to scary movie for the thrills. Only then to be tormented by nightmares and ignorant fears because these disturbing images and stories are dangerous to man’s psyche. These knucklehead beliefs inspire irrational fears, much like the fear of snakes, heights, close areas, or spiders, and prejudice, elitism and more.
If only they knew the truth about this AntiChrist and War WITHIN that is REALLY going down, they would rejoice and have a good laugh.
Then there are other conspiracy junkies (religious fanatics) who go so far as to say our President, the Pope, or Putin, or some other world leader is this dreaded Child of the Devil. Well if you are one who believes in a literal antichrist then that all may end after reading the rest of this article… that is, of course if these people make it this far.
Something I have learned about people and their beliefs, is they would rather hold onto the most monstrous lies than ACCEPT THEIR ERROR and be set free from it.
John 3:20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
What this means is that people who are ignorant don’t want to come to the Truth, otherwise their BELIEFS are exposed as false. No one wants to be wrong, unless it is me in my house, because, according to the kidies I am always wrong. 🙂
Well, if your one of those people that believe this hogwash… TOUGH! Because I’m bringing the heat this morning and for some it may going to hurt.
TAKE YOU MEDICINE! TAKE IT! TAKE IT! 🙂
It is high time, the liars of the land WAKE UP from this nightmare they are spreading. The IGNORANT BELIEFS about the rapture, antichrist, Armageddon, etc are coming down. They already came down in my life and many others, now it’s the younger brothers and sisters turn.
Revelation 14:8 And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.
You can consider me just another Angel coming along to say, YOUR CONFUSION IS DONE! Your great BELIEF SYSTEM OF LIES has made TOO MANY PEOPLE IGNORANT. TOO MANY have BECOME ONE with this HARLOT (False beliefs/idolatry/lies) SYSTEM (Religion). There have been many “angels” writing about this topic since before the dark ages. You can always look to William Blake for some great prose on the subject, and the potential of mankind’s imagination.
So let’s start our essay already with everyones favorite VILLAIN – THE ANTI-CHRIST. Let’s begin at looking at the ONLY VERSES in the bible that actually call this “Carnal Nature” IN Mankind the “ANTI-CHRIST”
When we take these scriptures in context and throw out all the garbage false teachers have added (PROBABLY BECAUSE they have watched the exorcist, or The Omen, one too many times, then it will be easy for you to see, who the ANTI-CHRIST is… And you may not like finding out the truth because it takes the blame off some so-called monster of the future, and puts the responsibilty smack dab in the middle of you… Unless of course, Christ has already kicked Him Out Of Your Temple (soulish thinking)
1 John 2:18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
Okay, first of all, let’s point out that this literally was written over a thousand years ago… John here was stating that the “Last Time” was back then. And he was right, as the “Last Time” is always RIGHT IN THE HERE AN NOW… It is the Last Day or Your Ignorance, and the First Day of Christ (truth).
John 11:25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
But to REALLY understand what John was writing about, when speaking of this “Last Time” we must start two verses earlier, to see what John is really talking about.
1 John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
John is saying we should NOT LOVE THE WORLD… Well, he is not talking about the literal world, but the THINGS OF THE WORLD.
So IS he talking about the air, dirt, grass, mountains, trees, bushes, animals, etc… AH NO! Look…
1 John 2:16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
Hope you are getting a clearer understanding now. The WORLD that John is talking about is MAN’S CARNAL THINKING, the Lust of the Flesh, the Lust of the Eyes, and The Pride of Life. – This is the WORLD he is talking about, not the LITERAL EARTH. The WORLD is a symbol, for all man EXISTS IN (Man’s THOUGHTS) – And IN MAN’S CARNAL WORLD, is lust of eyes, pride of life, and lust of flesh – (Eve is tempted with this, Jesus as well) – In fact, this is what all of us are tempted with. “when we are drawn away by our own lusts”
1 John 2:17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever
So, we see here, that MAN’S CARNAL WORLDLY THINKING will, WILL, WILL, PASS AWAY, and all of MAN’S LUSTS with it… Only the THOUGHTS OF GOD remain forever.
This is good news. For a moment, God has allowed the WHEAT to grow up with the TARES (Inside our Thinking) for a moment! But at the END (End of Man’s Ignorance) His angels gather and bind every Tare and burn them away.
The TRUTH destroys the LIES.
So far, it doesn’t appear that John is talking about some spooky supernatural being does it? Of course not, people, he is talking about the NATURE IN MAN that needs to be destroyed. The NATURE that is in opposition to the TRUTH OF GOD. John is talking about those who are RULED BY THE FLESH which is at war with the SPIRIT.
This is the ONLY WAR that the bible is speaking of. The WAR WITHIN. And yes, there are literal wars in the world, but that is simply because MAN IS STILL BEING RULED by the LUSTS WITHIN.
So now we get to our first mention of the ANTICHRIST.
1 John 2:18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
Now watch, as the AntiChrist – Man’s Carnal Nature is exposed as simply being those that do not know the TRUTH. “Next verse same as the First”
21I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth. 22Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.
Look, “church”, the “ANTICHRIST” in black and white are those that DO NOT KNOW THE TRUTH. They aren’t literal demonic monsters… but men and women who, because they are ignorant of God’s truth act in monstrous ways… Hitler, a great example of that.
When man is conditioned to believe a lie about anything, it is hard to depart from it. This is why I titled the paper, “The AntiChrist and You, friends until the End” … People outside of the wisdom of God, in their error and possession (false beliefs) do some pretty monstrous things. But the antichrist isn’t some creature possessing them to do it, Mankind’s own carnal egocentric nature is what motivates such awful behavior.
William Arthur Ward wrote “If you can imagine it you can achieve it. If you can dream it, you can become it.” <— By the way, I have no clue who that is.
Evidence of this random quote I pulled from the internet, you’ll find all over scripture. “Whatever a man believes in his heart that he becomes.” – You see our THOUGHTS CREATE. I will have an essay on the power of our thoughts in the future, but for now, I want to show you how MAN’S CARNAL thought give birth to the most horrific images, and these images give birth to the most horrific actions.
Does art imitate life, or does life imitate art. I say the later.
Let’s move on, to further prove this ANTICHRIST is nothing more than the person we believe ourselves to be (as truly we are ONLY CHRIST to begin with)
Now one of the reasons, people see this “antichrist” figure as someone who is COMING in the future, is the misunderstanding of the word used to explain how the ANTICHRIST is REVEALED. In many scriptures, the word that is used is “COME” SEE BELOW.
1 John 4:3
And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
So a person could teach that this ANTICHRIST is COMING IN THE FUTURE, if they didn’t bother to check out what the word “COME” really meant when translated from the Koine Greek… The give away, that this has NOTHING to do with the future is in the next line.
and even now already is it in the world.
So how can something COME and already BE IN THE WORLD NOW? Well, when the word “COME” is translated it becomes pretty clear.
COME – “ERCHOMAI” – Definition and proper translation is: ARISE, BECOME KNOWN, BE UNDERSTOOD, BE REVEALED.
So, now lets’ look at this verse with the RIGHT EYES. You see, this is how the Antichrist (Carnal Nature In Man) can COME (Be REVEALED) and BE IN THE WORLD.
This has nothing to do with a literal man coming onto the Global scene and deceiving the whole world. I MEAN REALLY PEOPLE, think about it.
This ANTICHRIST is said to STAND IN THE TEMPLE OF GOD and DECLARE HIMSELF TO BE GOD… And there are millions that believe, a Literal Temple is going to be built, and some Guy is going to stand there and say I AM GOD WORSHIP ME!
First of all, consider what TEMPLE this ANTICHRIST reigns from…. WE ARE THE TEMPLE! Hello? Is this thing on? Check, check, one, two, one, two.
We are the TEMPLE OF GOD, Our CARNAL NATURE (who we thought/or think ourselves to be) is SITTING ON THE THRONE OF GOD, DECLARING HIMSELF TO BE GOD.
Don’t believe me? Well, most people will say, “YOU HAVE TO CHOSE GOD” Basically, that means that we believe WE ARE IN CONTROL, not God. ß Sorry guys, that is the ANTICHRIST speaking in you.
When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
This is why, we are told to FLEE from this sort of thinking. The INSTANT we realize that our EGO is the ANTICHRIST, that who we THINK WE ARE, is actually the enemy of God, we are to FLEE from this thought process.
There is a scripture that says, once the ANTICHRIST is REVEALED, Christ comes and destroys it with the BRIGHTNESS OF HIS COMING (REVEALING)
Think about that without the scripture staring you in the face. THE INSTANT you understand that your CARNAL EGO is the ENEMY, that is when IT IS DESTROYED, because the TRUTH which is CHRIST takes the throne from that moment on to rule.
This story of the end of the world, the battle in heaven, the war to end all wars is an allegory for the FIGHT between the TRUTH OF GOD (which prevails) and the LIES OF CARNAL MAN. The FLESH is at war with the SPIRIT. Now look below.
2 Thes 7 For the mystery of iniquity (antichrist) doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
Notice the word MYSTERY! This is not a literal thing here. This is why the WHOLE WORLD IS DECIEVED. The carnal ego of man is the SIN OF ADAM, it is the FALL, it is leaving the TRUTH OF GOD and who we are “CHRIST IN YOU” for the belief, we are mortal men and women who are in control of our destiny. (antichrist)
Here we see, this WICKEDNESS (Ignorance) is already at who… Notice the next line, he who letteth will let (he who allows it will allow it and be ruled by it) UNTIL PEOPLE, it is taken away. God will deliver humanity, this is what Jesus taught us by dying on the Cross. Our salvation is when we too die of this ANTICHRIST in us.
8And 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:
As I stated above, once we realize there is no spooky monster posing as a politician or world leader, but is actually OUR CARNAL EGO, once this is revealed by the TRUTH OF CHRIST, that the TRUTH OF CHRIST (who is out LIFE) will consume it and destroy it. The LIES we believe fall away, and never take hold of us again.
10And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
It is not about some literal man we need to be saved from, it is the LIES in our HEAD, we need to be saved from. IT IS THE TRUTH that sets us free.
Oh I know what your thinking, (if you still want to hold onto your scary beliefs) … WHAT ABOUT THAT MARK and 666.
Okay, let me address this quick.
Rev 15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
Okay, let me get rid of the scary word BEAST here for you. Any lover of poetry would see the symbolism here of a BEAST. “Oh Jacob, you Beast you!” ß My wife could use these words to describe me while ravishing her…. Dinner. (Come on, people, it’s a family show)
To act Beastly is to act CARNAL, like an ANIMAL. But don’t take my word for it, scripture tells us plainly who the “BEAST” IS… that we all worship, or have worshipped. Take a look:
Man that is in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts that perish. (The ignorant man, the one who doesn’t know TRUTH is like a BEAST)
I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts.
Look at that, just as I have been stating. God will REVEAL the BEAST nature in man, and consume it, replacing it with the TRUE KING CHRIST!
2 Peter 2:12
But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;
But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.
Okay, by now, you get the point. The BEAST/ANTICHRIST = Man’s Carnal EGO! But let’s continue with the whole BUYING AND SELLING with the mark of the beast. You know, all these preachers and prophets love to talk about THE CHIP! ßinsert dramatic music.
YES, THE DREADED CHIP…we must NEVER TAKE! It amazes me, how even I once believed this conspiracy nonsense, I BOUGHT IT hook line and sinker… Did you catch that. When I was IGNORANT I BOUGHT the nonsense, they were selling.
16And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
The right hand (Judgement/authority/works) and forehead (thinking) – but what is this MARK… THE MARK OF THE BEAST (carnal Man)
Well, we have all heard the expression, the ANIMAL MARKS his territory. So on one hand, this MARK could simply be the ACTIONS AND THOUGHTS associated with such ignorant thinking. This MARK is how we KNOW who the BEAST is. And how do we know, well by the WORKS OF THEIR HANDS and the THOUGHTS IN THEIR HEAD.
To MARK something, means to NOTICE IT.
Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace.
17And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
The buying and selling here, is a clear reference to what was going on in the Temple. The buying and selling of the SACRAFICE. People were buying and selling, and unfortunately, the SACRAFICE which is actually CHRIST is being BOUGHT AND SOLD today.
Refer to my article called “Reed Swaying In The Wind”
In a NUTSHELL <– Appropriate vessel for such thinking.
Look, you don’t have to go very far to find Jesus books, tee shirts, oils, gum, dvd’s, cd’s, etc etc… Jesus is bought and sold in almost every man made church today… BUT NOTICE, ONLY THOSE WITH THE MARK OF THE BEAST WILL BUY IT!
Did you catch that “church”… if you DON’T BELIEVE WHAT THEY BELIEVE, you CAN’T BUY AND SELL what they are BUYING AND SELLING. You know it is all VANITY and IDOLATRY and HOGWASH.
Christ isn’t for sale, only a BEAST would think you could Buy or Sell God. Now, it should be BLATANTLY OBVIOUS by now, that the ONLY ANTICHRIST is CARNAL MAN’S EGO… It is OUR FALSE IDENTITY, it is who we THINK we are, our EGO, not who we TRULY ARE (Christ IN You)
The only Monster there is, is the MONSTER within MAN’S CARNAL EGO… But once, we understand, that WE (ignorant egomaniacs) are the ANTICHRIST… then THE TRUTH can set us free!
One last thing I want to point out, which should be so obvious I can’t believe the LIES OF MAN has blinded so many of God’s lost tribe. The next verse TELLS YOU in PLAIN OLD ENGLISH (I use KJV) who and what the ANTICHRIST is…
18Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
IT IS MAN!!!!!!
“So now you know and knowing is half the battle” ß G.I. Joe
Now go spread the word.
The Truth Will Change You
