How to recognise the Anti Christ (The Beast) according to Scripture

Who is the Anti Christ. What does the Bible say?


This is Part 2 and a follow on to a recent article entitled "Who is the Beast (Anti Christ) of Revelation. Characteristics and Possibilities".


This article goes into more detail based on scripture, on what the personal characteristics of the AC or The Beast mentioned in Revelation 13 will be. It will be in two parts. The first part will be what scripture says about the Anti Christ and a few views thrown in from myself to ponder over. The second part will be applying these scriptural characteristics to the 45th President of the US to see how he scrubs up and also see how many boxes he ticks. This is a Form Your Own Opinion article (FYOP).

With the 44th President of the US now out of office ( I don't think we have heard the last of him) and the 45th President now in office just a matter of days, the question that is going to arise will be, is the new President possibly the Beast mentioned in Revelation 13? This is starting to appear especially on You Tube with numerous reasons stating that this, 45th President is in fact the very same. Some backed by patchy scripture and most just merely speculation with no scripture whatsoever. Hence this article to arm you with the facts that appear not only in the New Testament and especially The Book of Revelation but the Old Testament as well.

The Rider on the White Horse Seal No One in Revelation.
Most Bible Scholars are in agreement that the White Horse mentioned in Revelation 6, which is part of the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse and the First Seal that is opened is in fact The Anti Christ.

Revelation 6:2
And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.

Has the second seal been opened. Some say it has, some say it hasn't or even none have been opened. I think it has been opened, he is here now, but not publicly revealed yet. That's just my opinion. Check the masses of scripture below and FYOP.

This article will look in more depth at who this mysterious character that rides the White Horse is, his identifiers and characteristics, what his morals and ethics are, what power and roles he will have on the global stage, what he will do and what his many names are mentioned in the Bible,


What is the Anti Christ called in the Bible?
The Anti Chist has many names in the Bible throughout the Old and New Testament

Isaiah 14:12 . . "Lucifer"
How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

Isaiah 30:33 . . "THE KING," of Tophet
For Tophet is ordained of old; yea, for the king it is prepared; he hath made it deep and large: the pile thereof is fire and much wood; the breath of the LORD, like a stream of brimstone, doth kindle it.

The Man of Sin or The Son of Perdition

And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over.

Revelation 13:16-17 He will introduce a global system known as The Beast System
16. And 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:
17. And 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.


2 Thess. 2:9 . . He will produce miracles and signs and wonders but not real
Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

ALSO
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.

And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is


He will epitomise blasphemy
Isaiah 14:13 . . He will exalt his throne above the stars of God

And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN

11:41 . . . He enters into the glorious land.
He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.


EXTRA
These are just extra details that COULD be who the Anti Christ can be identified by. Not backed by scripture just my views on my Bible study travels, form your own opinion. (FYOP). Just some of many thousands of views out there!

1. If he is a counterfeit version of Jesus as detailed in the scripture and is something along the lines of Matthew 24:24 only he will be THE False Christ

Matthew 24:24
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; in so much that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

My estimate to achieve this ability "to deceive the very elect" his age would have to be around 30-33 years of age probably more 33 which is the age that Jesus died. He will be very difficult to distinguish from the real thing and will be capable of doing many things that Jesus did and will initially come in peace and have all the answers to the worlds problems.

2. He would have uncertain parentage on one or both sides just like Jesus who's mother was Mary and who's stepfather was Joseph and was produced by The Holy Spirit. This one will have a similar background but obviously not produced by anything Holy in nature...quite the reverse. Maybe the result of some Lab Experiment. A birth certificate for this person would be an issue?

3. This individual would have no ID or a fake ID and would not show up on any systems such as Banks, National ID, Tax or similar. He would not be a member of any recognised religious institution or even an underground institution or society unless he was the head of it. He would possibly be nomadic in nature (just like Jesus was) and very hard to trace.

4. To achieve this level of cunning and deceit this person would have a far superior brain power to any world leader we have at present or have ever seen before. He may also be multi lingual and understand many customs and languages to achieve this world acceptance overnight.

5. This man is not interested in women but is more focused on power. Probably will not be married or in any form of relationship. Dan 11:3

6. He will most likely come to prominence as a political leader or military leader or both. He will have the answers to all the worlds problems not just one country. Daniel 11:38-39

7. Because he exalts himself over everything including the Gods he will be extremely arrogant in nature. He will also be ruthless in nature but behind the scenes not in the public spotlight until the latter stages Dan 8:23

8. The key component to identifying him will be the 7 year peace agreement with Israel which will be broken half way through (3.5 years) as mentioned in Daniel 9:27. The 3rd temple some say is the key component, others say it is not required.

9. This figure is primarily all about Globalisation and bringing in the Beast System one world, one currency, one religion, one Government, one ID system and killing off and marginalising Christianity


APPLYING ALL THIS TO THE 45TH PRESIDENT OF THE US.

The 45th President just like the 44th ticks a lot of boxes on the Prophecy front. His win apparently was in the Torah Code...... but does that mean he is the AC of Revelation?

The AC Yes Camp
He is prominent political leader. CHECK.
He is interested in having a prominent military presence in the world CHECK.
He is arrogant, charismatic and the rest CHECK.
He is interested in placing the US Embassy in Israel. Nothing else mentioned yet but he does seem to be Israel focused. CHECK.

His claim to Christianity and being Protestant has been much publicised, but when pushed for answers to certain questions about his Christian faith, some things come up short

Donald Trump on God and Forgiveness Video


If you are a Christian you ask God for forgiveness it's called Repentance. You are also Forgiving. It's the core of the Christian faith. It is a very easy question to answer. You don't have to think for a second on how to answer that one. He goes on to say he sorts out his own problems and the "wine and wafer" seems to work fine. Again open to much debate, and seems to keep God and Jesus out of the equation relying on himself and and the institution to sort out problems.

He has an entourage of Spiritual Advisers and his most prominent is Paula White of which I wrote a truck load in an article. Check out more here

He is a Church goer?. Yes he is, doesn't mean a thing. All the prominent world leaders are church goers, May, Merkel, Putin and and on and on. I don't think his Christian faith is fooling hardcore believers, but he is new and at least he is stepping in the right direction of sorts??? or is it just a front????

The military might build up to rival China does have an Armageddon or Apocalypse ring to it for sure, it remains to be seen how this will be funded with a near 20 Trillion debt pile that threatens to swamp the US if left to escalate higher.

The NEW President has described negotiating peace between Israel and the Palestinians as the “ultimate deal.” It is possible that some form of agreement between Israel and the Palestinians will be part of the end-times’ 7-year peace covenant???

Blasphemous? Not much evidence yet ,but it's still early days. The above with regards to Christianity could be taken as mild blasphemy.


The AC NO Camp
First off he is 70 yeas old, 71 in June.
Does he have a birth certificate YES .
Uncertain or mysterious parentage. NO both human!
Not interested in Women? Very interested in women as the presidential campaign revealed and is married with children.
Dubious ID and nomadic lifestyle. Has run a succesful high profile business that requires many forms of ID especially TAX and has a fixed abode. There are no mysteries here. Even his private life is not a mystery, all the skeletons in the cupboard were revealed?

Some say he is a member of The Freemasons, others say he is not. Whether he is or not is immaterial. 1/3 of US Presidents were members of the Masonic Society, the founding fathers were members, check the one dollar bills for Masonic symbolism "The Eye of Providence" or the "All Seeing Eye"

He is about building walls and anti globalisation and bringing back America to it's old school values, or so he says. Whether all this will happen remains to be seen.

The Pope is not keen on him, at least that is the mainstream media presentation. Whether that remains the case is something that time will tell and again is something to keep an eye on.

Summary
The AC will be an extremely popular, charismatic, charming and deceitful and powerful character that will have all the answers to the worlds problems, will fool many including lukewarm Christians and even hardened Christians, will rise to global prominence from absolutely nowhere and will be capable of signs, wonders and miracles at the click of a finger just like Jesus. Notably he will come in Peace but his plans will be chaos. He will have people worshipping him en masse thinking he is the "Return of the Messiah". Apply this to the mass riots across the US and riots outside the Inauguration and we have a picture about as far removed as you can get from that scenario.

BUT it's still early days, he could be, maybe not, maybe the previous one was and again maybe not, but as I always say you need to watch developments in Israel and more to the point Jerusalem and there you will find your answers and fulfillment of Bible Prophecy. Personally I have one eye still on the 44th President and one eye on the current 45th.

On a final note YES and NO camp aside, a Tweet I retweeted the other day in reality does sum up the current state of affairs and illustrates just as with BREXIT and the recent High Court ruling, it really doesn't make the slightest bit of difference who is in office, the route will change (policies) but the ultimate destination is exactly the same.

NEW BOSS 45th President Republican
OLD BOSS 44th President Democrat

STILL SAME PEOPLE SAME OWNERS
The 1% World Elite still run the show regardless of who is in power.
