The Coming of the Lawless One and His False Gospel

upside-down-cross2The book of 2 Thessalonians, is a prophetic book because within its pages, Paul gives us several prophetic details concerning the end of the age and the time of the Second Coming of Christ. He begins to speak about the lawless one being revealed, the one whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth when He returns to the earth. This lawless one of course is the antichrist. When I was first introduced to this shadowy character at the beginning of my Christian walk, I had the picture in my mind that he would primarily be a political figure. The Bible reveals that initially, he will appear on the world scene as a man of not just ideas, but also solutions. He will be instrumental in bringing a false peace to the Middle East conflict and he will do many other things such as this, of course afterwards his true colors will be revealed. As I read in 2 Thessalonians, I am beginning to see this “lawless one” not just as political figure, but also a spiritual or religious world leader. First of all lets examine the Scripture:

2 Thessalonians 2:8-9 (NASB)

8 Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming;

9 that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders,

When he appears on the world’s stage, he will seem as a mystic of sorts. He will not appear as just another political superstar with colorful rhetoric and charismatic oratory skills. Surely he will be a man of charisma and charm, however the Bible clearly tells us his appearing will as be associated with a flurry of supernatural activity and happenings. There will be signs and wonders, there will be a show of power, however, obviously this will not be power from the creator, but rather it will come forth from “the one” who wants to destroy us.

2 Thessalonians 2:10-12 (NASB)

10 and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved.

11 For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false,

12 in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness.

Jesus, said that before His return the gospel would be preached to all the earth. In fact, this is one of the “signs” of his return. We currently live in the age of internet and satellite television. There is not a place in the earth today that you can go and not have access to gospel preaching. In fact anyone that can access a computer can pull up the Bible in hundreds, if not thousands of different translations and languages. Unfortunately, in the same way that the gospel is being spread throughout the entire earth, so will this new religion of the Antichrist also cover the globe. Through satellite television and internet and even cell phones, billions of people world wide will witness the inception of this new phenomenal religion as presented forth by our up and coming world leader.

God in His mercy and grace allowed the gospel of righteousness to come forth first. It is the gospel of the Messiah, who didn’t come to be served, but to serve and to hang on a cross for our sins. (This is in stark contrast to Antichrist, who will come to be served.) He has allowed this knowledge to go throughout the earth for over 2000 years. The Word of God says that “it is his desire that none should perish, but that all would be saved.” Can we see God’s grace here!!! The True gospel came first to the whole world and lasted 2000 thousand years, this false gospel will come second and last no more than a decade. Everyone of us has had a chance to embrace righteousness and repent of our sins, however this passage is speaking to the world an ominous warning: Everyone who has not received the gospel of truth, WILL be deceived, they WILL believe the lie and they WILL enter into God’s severe judgment. Look at what is says in verse 11, GOD will be the one who will send this deluding influence. Doesn’t this one passage just throw a wrench into all of our superficial theology about God’s false love. Sure He is a God of love to those of us who have embraced the greatest act of love, the cross, but He is a God of wrath unto those who have shaken their fist in His face and trampled under foot the blood of Jesus. God is beginning to shout through His vessels, BELIEVE THE TRUTH! He is equipping and sending forth His messengers. Will we listen or will we perish. I want to close this brief exhortation with the words of Paul found in the 1st chapter of 2 Thessalonians:

2 Thessalonians 1:6-10 (NASB)

6 For after all it is only just for God to repay with affliction those who afflict you,

7 and to give relief to you who are afflicted and to us as well when the Lord Jesus will be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels in flaming fire,

8 dealing out retribution to those who do not know God and to those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.

9 These will pay the penalty of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power,

10 when He comes to be glorified in His saints on that day, and to be marveled at among all who have believed—for our testimony to you was believed.

Who then will receive His retribution? …..”those who do not know God and those who do not obey the gospel.”

Obama the Messiah and My Dream that McCain Won the Election

The Scriptures tell us that in the last days that many false Messiah’s would rise up and deceive many. Well we have seen this phenomenon on several fronts already, however now it can be seen on the political front. Not just any political front but it is in the race for the highest elected office in the world, the president of the United States of America. There are millions of people who are actually looking at Barack Obama as a Messiah type figure who will deliver them from both external and internal problems and conflicts in their life. Film director Spike Lee was actually quoted saying:

“When that happens, it will change everything. … You’ll have to measure time by `Before Obama’ and `After Obama,'” Lee said during the panel. “It’s an exciting time to be alive now.” …   – Spike Lee

Can we fathom how blasphemous of a statement this actually is. Currently it is the incarnation and death of Jesus on the cross that measures time from B.C. to A.D. Is Spike really implying that he wants to replace Jesus Christ with Barack Obama. Probably 40 or 50 years ago no one in American would have believed that a multitude of American people would ever worship any earthly man as a god. However in the 1960’s & 70’s Hindu gurus from India began invading and setting up shop here in America. Multitudes dogmatically followed and devoted their entire lives to these so called “godmen”. Even mainstream icons such as the Beatles began to follow and promote one such leader, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. You must understand that a large segment of that culture in the late 1960’s looked at men like Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, not just as a great teacher or philosopher, but as a bona fide god in the flesh. In India they follow these men around and worship the ground that they walk on, literally by kissing the ground and rubbing themselves with the dirt that just touched these men’s feet. To be honest I do not think that a majority of Obama’s supporters look at him as a savior, however the fact that there is a counterculture that is ready to embrace him as such is shocking and even frightening. On the website ObamaMessiah.blogspot.com, 100’s of pages of comments have been left, some referring to supporters of Obama as believers and his non supporters as unbelievers. Louis Farrakhan, before a very numerous congregation claimed that the youth are now hearing the voice of their Messiah(video below). Furthermore he called Obama “the Hope of the entire world”.  Yes, the days spoken of by Jesus in Matthew 24 are no longer just on the horizon they are here! Am I trying to say in this article that Obama is the Antichrist? ….Absolutely not!!! However what I am saying is that the people of America are ready to embrace a man or even a political leader as being a Messiah.

On another note, I had a dream about a week ago that John McCain won the election. In the dream after he won, I saw Obama and let’s just say that he was not too happy with the results. In the dream he was fuming with anger. I do not necessarily think that this was a prophetic dream, however it will be interesting if this is the scenario that plays out.

Obama Messiah?

Obama Messiah?
