There are many who have claimed the title of Messiah and they have been religious in nature or political leaders. The name comes from the Hebrew Ha mashiach and means “the Messiah” or “the anointed one”. After Jesus came a Jew named Bar Kochba claiming to be messiah who led a the revolt against the Romans that resulted in the Jews being exiled from their homeland. Since then the world has seen many claiming to be messiah; from Napoleon to Hitler to name a few. But, as we near the end of the age the spirit of Antichrist is growing stronger and it is preparing a counterfeit Messiah named the Antichrist. The Pope has been busy uniting various religions, from Christians to Muslims. The way is being prepared for a one-world religion which will recognize the Antichrist. All that is needed is the denial of the true Messiah, Jesus Christ. Jewish Rabbis are denying Jesus as their Messiah, a secret group of Catholics are denying Jesus as the Messiah, and of course the Muslims deny Jesus as the Messiah. A secret group of political and religious leaders have been working behind the scenes to prepare for this Antichrist and the now believe it is time to reveal him –
They are using signs and wonders to support their proclamation and so-called Bible Codes. God has said there would be heavenly signs and signs on earth before the Lord’s return so they use them to support their theory. They can’t deny them so they pervert them to their own message. Jesus warned us before hand that this would happen. Remember, the devil is a deceiver and a copy cat coming as an angel of light. Hear the worlds of Jesus –
“Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. See, I have told you beforehand. Therefore if they say to you, ‘Look, He is in the desert!’ do not go out; or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms!’ do not believe it. For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.” – Matt. 24:23-27
This is just one more sign that we are nearing the return of Jesus. Israel is once again a nation, Jerusalem is their capital. The Jewish Sanhedrin is reconstituted and a new High Priest is appointed. The Temple is about to be rebuilt. The nations are gathering against Israel and the one-world government and religion are forming. Jesus taught us –
“Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near” – Luke 21:28
Now is the time to have oil in our lamps as the wise virgins (Matt. 25) had to meet the bridegroom. Don’t be like the unwise virgins who ran out of oil and could not enter into the wedding feast. The oil is the Holy Spirit who is freely given to us who obey Him.
