I don't know if Formerly Fundie, a blog by Benjamin Corey, devoted to American and Christian culture and the end times has been discussed here. I know I'd forgotten all about his blog until someone pointed out this post that lays out the biblical predictions of the coming of the antichrist. Seems like Christians wouldn't have much trouble recognizing him, but. . .anyway, here are the highlights, which are themselves a long read, but please read the entire post, which includes the actual prophecies, chapter and verse, from Daniel, Matthew, II Thessalonians, and of course the Book of Revelations https://www.benjaminlcorey.com/could-american-evangelicals-spot-the-antichrist-heres-the-biblical-predictions/ The Antichrist will be the leader of a nation that is a military superpower with the ability to trample and crush the entire earth. The Antichrist will be a man who is exceptionally arrogant and will be known for giving boastful speeches. The Antichrist will be someone known for making a lot of public threats against people. The Antichrist will come from among 7 tall “hills” that each act as a “head.” [nb: this one is a bit of a stretch for me] The Antichrist will cause people all over the globe to be filled with wonder and “follow” him. And here's where it gets downright eerie: The Antichrist will be a political outsider with despicable character and a contemptuous personality who wins an election that no one expects him to win. The Antichrist will give speeches where he speaks “great things” and then about things that are even “greater.” The Antichrist comes to power through collusion with a secret alliance who uses disinformation to help him win– even though he has a minority number of supporters. The Antichrist’s rise to power will seem like a miracle that God performed, tricking people into following Satan instead of God without even noticing. As president, the Antichrist will immediately find ways to make himself and his friends richer– and he will do it in a way no president had ever done before. Once in power the Antichrist will reveal that his heart wants to make alterations to the “appointed times” that are in current laws. The Antichrist will make fake news popular and will be a chronic liar. His followers will believe his delusions because they hate the truth. The Antichrist will reward those who are completely loyal with powerful positions and lucrative real estate deals. The Bible says that we’ll be able to spot the Antichrist because he will give an arrogant public speech in the middle of his first term where he boasts of “great things” but also uses God’s name as a curse in the same speech. The Antichrist will draw strong support from many Christians as if they are willfully blind and outright delusional. The Antichrist will spend his first term in office having an ongoing feud with the leadership of the nation on his southern border. The Antichrist will be so angry at the king to his south that he will decide to intentionally inflict harm on that ethnic group in retaliation. The Antichrist will be furious over “rumors and reports” that come from the east and north, and will fly into fits of rage as the reports surface. The Antichrist will appear to receive a wound he can’t recover from, but will survive to put down the first attempts to remove him from office. The Antichrist will have the nation’s most powerful religious leader influencing the country for him. This leader will try to convince Christians that the Antichrist is “God’s pick” and that we need to support him. [nb:<cough> Franklin Graham <cough>] The Antichrist will see himself as being above everyone else, as if he had no need for God. He will eventually elevate himself as the God and King of Israel The Antichrist will worship the god of border walls. (For real. The Bible actually says that.) The Antichrist’s most devoted followers will wear a sign of their allegiance to him on their foreheads. [MAGA hats?] … But the people who truly know God and remain faithful, will firmly “resist” him. [Thank god for John Pavlovitz, and Rev. Chuck Curry, and the handful of other progressive Christian spokespeople.]
Unfortunately, the video of a 3 year old getting a tattoo showed up in my FB feed. I had to google and find out WTH is this all about. Is anyone else familiar with this sect- Growing in Grace? It would appear the leader/founder at one time professed to being both God AND the Antichrist.... among other things. I had never heard of them before today... but still digging for more info. Some of these links are OLD. Here a few links - TW for max grossness on the tattoo video. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/01/31/mother-tattoo-son_n_2591132.html https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/José_Luis_de_Jesús http://edition.cnn.com/2007/US/02/16/miami.preacher/ Fantastic, another group ruining lives...
