So Many Anti-Christs, So Little Time...

One would think that it would be easy to find out who or what Anti-Christ is, because of the nature of the word: anti + Christ. "Anti" means "against". For instance, someone who is "anti-war" is "against war." Someone who is "anti-defamation" is against slander or bad mouthing someone or some group. "Anti-Semitic" means against Semites. IT DOES NOT MEAN AGAINST JEWS! OKAY??? Semites include Jews and Arabs. It includes most of the Middle East, in fact (but not Iranians, because Persians are related to Indo-Aryans and are thus, Biblically, of Japheth). So that, by definition, "Anti-Christ" means "against Christ." That is so obvious that I have to wonder why Christians have such a hard time figuring out who or what is Anti-Christ.

But I have a theory born of discernment and the Holy Spirit.

The problem is that Christians are looking for "THE" Anti-Christ. It is usually expressed as "THE Anti-Christ will, during the Seven Year Great Tribulation, first make peace with Israel (some say "the Jews") to make a false peace, but then will break the peace, sit in the Temple in Jerusalem (which would be rebuilt on the site of the present Islamic Dome of the Rock, one of Islam's holiest sites), proclaim himself God, and proceed to force the 'Mark of the Beast' and '666' and all sorts of calamity on the world, including slaughtering 2/3 of the world's Jews (while 1/3 convert to Christianity) and wind up being defeated at the Battle of Armeggedon by the "Second Coming" of Christ along with His angels." I have heard slight variations on this theme for years. Other than citing Daniel 9, Zechariah 12, Revelation 13 and a few other places in the Bible, I have never heard an explanation form anyone that most assuredly rests on the Word of God. For one thing, only ONE BOOK of the Bible even mentions the word "anti-Christ", 1 John. (One would think that the use of the term "Anti-Christ" by Christians as much as we do would mean the word is mentioned in at least several other "end-times prophecies", but no. This is almost as much bad discernment as use of the word "rapture", the context in which it is meant HAVING NO PLACE IN THE BIBLE, PERIOD! And there is NO ONE SINGLE ANTI-CHRIST, EITHER!

Thus: THE "Anti-Christ" is not the Pope of Rome (Hagee and others). It is not King Juan Carlos of Spain ("Newswatch Magazine's" David J. Smith's routine). It is not George W. Bush (some leftist antiwar bloggers, probably in jest). It is not Prince Charles of Britain (various other Christian Identity sites). It is not Saddam Hussein (he's dead). It is not Osama bin Laden (he is also dead, according to FOX News of December, 2001, and the late Benazir Bhutto, a You Tube video made right before her assasination attests). It is not John Hagee (some radical anti-Christian Zionists), however Hagee is certainly a false prophet. Nor is it Pat Robertson, James Dobson, Hal Lindsay, or any other leader of the Christian Right. It is also not any other world leader, politically, economically, socially, or in any other elite position. It is not a member of the so-called "Illuminati" (Rothschild, Rockefeller, et. al.) There is NO ONE SINGLE "THE" Anti-Christ!

Here is what 1 John 2:21-23 says the Anti-Christ is:

"(21)I write not to you seeing that you are not acquainted with the truth, but that you are acquainted with it, and that no lie at all is truth. (22) Who is the liar, if not he who is denying, saying that 'Jesus is not the Christ'? This one is the antichrist, who is disowning the Father and the Son. (23) Everyone who is disowning the Son, neither has the Father. He who is avowing the Son has the Father also." (Concordant Literal New Testament; I used this version because this is the only Bible version that I have found that properly translates the ancient Greek, using the imperfect aorist tense the original New Testament Aramaic/Greek Scriptures were written in. Most versions use the simple (preterite) past or past participle/progressive past tenses, which are less accurate. Using this tense also shows that doing the Word of God is ongoing, and didn't end in the 1st Century AD.)

Thus, EVERYONE who disowns Jesus as the Christ, or Christ, is anti-Christ. Also, every writing that disowns Christ is anti-Christ. and every so-called Holy Book that disowns Jesus as the Christ (or the Messiah or that Christ is the Son of God) is anti-Christ.

Thus, the Koran, which calls Christ a prophet only, but not the Son of God and the Christ is anti-Christ. While the Torah does not specifically state that Christ is the Son of God, it is implied in its prophecies and is used by Messianic Jews to defend Jesus, the Emmanuel (God with us) (in Hebrew Jesus is "Yehoshua" or Joshua, "Jesus" is a Greek translation), as the Christ/Messiah, thus the Torah and Jews who practice the Torah EXCLUSIVELY as the Word of God in their faith are not necessarily anti-Christ. The problem is most Jews do not consider the Torah exclusively as "the law" and spiritual foundation of their faith. In fact it is true today that the Talmud is now the most important legal and spiritual foundation for Judaism. The Talmud is, by the admission of its reviewers, the written collection of works taken from oral spiritual and legal Pharisee/Sadducee traditions.

The Talmud says: (paraphrased) Christ is in hell, wallowing in boiling hot excrement (Gittin 56b-57a). And the Book of Sanhedrin says, He was a bastard, son of adulterous Mary (Sanhedrin 106b). He was hung on the eve of Passover because He was a sorcerer and apostate (Sanhedrin 43a). He was a fool who fell down and worshipped a brick (Sanhedrine 67a). The Talmud is online now at the "see and hear" website, and you can verify this for yourself. Thus, the Talmud, the "law" and "spirit" for most religious Jews, is DEFINITELY anti-Christ!

In a future post, I hope I can clear up, the Lord willing, other misconceptions about "666" and other end-times concerns.

DISCLAIMER: The following testimony is given regarding the religious systems of this wicked world, not individuals. Recorded for revelation, not condemnation, in hopes there would be those who would "see" and "hear", for all who do so will "come out from among them(this world and it's systems of religion) and be separate". They will "Come out of her" indeed and Truth!

"The Way of Truth is evil spoken of" because of pagan "catholicism" and her harlot pagan "christian" daughters ;-( Their "imag"ined "jesus christ" is not The Messiah! It was some five hundred years ago that they named one head of their three-headed pagan "god", "jesus", during a time that has been called the "reformation". Prior to that time there was no "j" sound in the english language.......period.......

Yet the "reformation" was an aptly named time! For it was a time when "catholicism" birthed her harlot "christian" daughters ;-( Her "christian" daughters are of her substance ;-( Her substance was merely "reformed" so that her "christian" daughters might appear a bit differently outwardly, yet inwardly they remained liken unto their pagan harlot mother ;-(

"christianity" is but the byproduct of the fornicative relationship pagan "catholicism" has always had with "the god of this world", he who is "the father of lies", he who is "the angel of light", 'd'evil spirit that rules over this wicked world ;-(
All religious systems, muslin, jewish, buddhist, catholic, christian ,,etc,, are Anti-Messiah!

Religious systems of this world, all alike they are,
Their captives have fought, killed and died, both near and far ;-(

And then once a week, or multiple times a day they may pray,
Yet as hypocrites they begin each new day ;-(

Days that are filled with deceit and lies,
For in a "religious system" Truth can not abide ;-(

And so the fruit of death is born of religion's way,
Because life is but a pawn in the wicked game they play ;-(

Faith will not create a religious system!

The Messiah testified of a "wicked world", and of His disciples being "in, not of, this world".

John exhorted those who believed "to love not the world or it's things" for "the WHOLE world is under the control of the evil one"!

And James testified, "whoever is a friend of this world is the enemy of GOD(Father, Great Spirit, Creator,,)"!

Those of this wicked world and it's religious systems are destroying and perverting Creation and The Creator, Our Father, has promised that HE "will destroy those who are destroying and perverting HIS Creation(earth, air, water, creatures, Truth, Love, Peace, .etc.)"!

Hope is that there be those who take heed unto The Call of The Only True GOD and "Come out of her, MY people"!

All who heed GOD's Call will exit "the broadway to destruction" and they will follow The Messiah on "The Way to The Truth of The Life"! They no longer will have their portion with the pagan "catholic" and "christian" LIES, or with any other religious system of this world.

The Messiah testified, "whoever lives and believes in Me(His Teachings and Life example) shall never die." And then The Messiah questioned, "Do you believe this?" YES!

And you? Do you believe? Or do you believe in death?

While there is breath(spirit) there is hope!

For Miracles Do Happen! Thankfully so!

Hope is that there would be those who "come out" of the "strong delusion" that is the religious systems of this wicked world. Hope is that there would be those who believe in and receive of The Life. Hope is that there would be those who would "experience The Messiah and The Power that raised Him from among the dead".

Hope is you will, or have experienced The Miracle that is receiving "a love of The Truth".

All who have received "a love of The Truth" will have:

Peace, in spite of the dis-ease(no-peace) that is of this wicked world, for "the WHOLE world is under the control of the evil one" indeed and Truth! (1 John 5:19) ....... francisco

Jesus True Message.

Many people believe Jesus died on the cross for our sins this is both true and untrue and has much more subtlety than the current teachings. He died for our sins in the sense that he was showing they do not exist. His true legacy was that he was willing to die for his fellow man thereby overcoming the survival instinct of man. This is the sin he wiped out by showing that it was the way to heaven. Our survival based instinct and fear of death is what makes it true if there is no fear and a complete willingness to die for any man for any reason that is an ascension a new awareness from the perspective of mankind not the individual. This is why Jesus died and why he could not die.

The cross is a symbol of his horizontal understanding of the individual survival instinct of man as well as the vertical perspective which above includes the collective awareness of mankind and below the deeper greed and lust for power of individuals.

From the perspective of the individual survival instinct it is very hard to understand the higher level awareness this is the reason for the many misinterpretations of Jesus life and purpose.The biggest message we need to understand is that like Jesus we need to be willing to die in place of any person no matter what we think he has done. When we are willing to do this the true nature of abundance will come streaming into our awareness lighting the dark that seems to be nothing but lack. This illusion of lack is centered in our survival instinct perspective and it's fog will not lift until a new perspective is desired one in which you are willing to die for any of your fellow human beings. This love for mankind brings truth into awareness.

From this perspective all things reverse, pain becomes joy, decay becomes new growth and the illusion of lack becomes the reality of abundance.

This is the best of humanity.

The opposite of this is the anti-christ. When you will not sacrifice yourself for your brother or for a million of them and are willing to kill to stay alive you have embodied satan and your awareness will be full of lack greed and the desire for power.
