Who Is The Antichrist? Part 1

Who is he?

 

Short answer: Donald Trump.

Degree of certainty: 100 %.

I know what you think: “c’mon, give me a break! They are all Antichrists! Obama, Bush, it’s Trump’s turn now. Don’t give me this…!”

 

With all fairness, a quick google search confirms that you are right to be annoyed:

(Searching within quotes only finds results that include all of those words, in that specific order)

 

So why bother? The article is long….But keep reading, if you can, and I promise- you will be surprised, especially if you have never researched this topic!


Why is it so difficult to agree to that?

First of all, it’s not a coincidence that so many people on the internet have claimed that certain individuals were Antichrists and also that there have been a great number of predictions about the end of the world coming in particular year or even on particular date. And there is a clear explanation why this has been happening. But it would be too long for the purposes of this article. We are going to address this issue later in another post.

So why is it so difficult to believe that Donald Trump is the one?:

  • As mentioned above- there have been too many false antichrists.
  • Let us not forget that, during his first coming many people failed to identify Christ as the Messiah (or even a prophet) either. Even his disciples struggled at the time. Although, on different occasions Jesus gave them hints to help understand who He really was. The Antichrist, on the other hand, never acknowledged who he is, most probably never will, so for the vast majority of people it it’s even harder to identify Antichrist than Christ, especially now, when things are still relatively quiet in the world.
  • Donald Trump himself clearly doesn’t know he is the Antichrist. So he doesn’t have to act, pretending he is not the one.
  • He has dissolved in the crowd- He is more or less a “normal” person. At least so far.

The following behaviour is considered normal in today’s world:

…and so on and so forth…

It’s considered ok to have vices in abundance and think of them as something funny. And, especially, If you do not break law, you are fine. Today’s world is a perfect place for the Antichrist to come and remain incognito for a awfully long time.

There is such an enormous amount of information about Donald Trump’s character, including leaked information. Is it that we can make an informative choice which side we are on?

And have you ever thought- this all “normality” is very ANTI-Christ in nature, opposed to Christ’s teachings? Therefore, essentially there are many antichrists in today’s world, some of them are more antichrist and some of them are less. The only real difference between them and THE Antichrist is that the latter by his actions is destined to fulfil Bible prophecies. See what I mean?

Is Donald Trump close to fulfilling them? We are going to analyse that later in this article.


The name says a lot

Antichrist is translated from the combination of two ancient Greek words ἀντί + Χριστός (anti + Christos). In Greek, Χριστός means “anointed one” and the word Christ derives from it. “Ἀντί” means not only anti in the sense of “against” and “opposite of”, but also “in place of”

source: Antichrist-Etymology – Wikipedia

Antichrist = ANTI Christ = opposed to Christ’s teachings

Examples mentioned above show that he is clearly opposed to Jesus Christ’s teachings

In place of…

The Antichrist will try to replace Christ. How do we know that?

It’s important to understand that Jesus Christ came not only to redeem the world but also to bring new, higher moral norms (Later on we are going to discuss those existential questions much deeper in another post). Essentially, Jews wouldn’t except God’s new message to them and the Humanity. They rejected him as it had been prophesised here:

The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone

Psalms 118:22 (ISV)

That’s why they’ll be given a deceiver. :

Jn 5:43 I have come in my Father’s name, and you do not accept me. If someone else comes in his own name, you will accept him. >>

Jn 5:43 (NET)

 

So why wouldn’t Jews listen to Jesus? In short, the main reasons were that his requirements were higher than they had been used to, he brought meaningfulness to suffering and he didn’t restore the Kingdom to Israel. So, basically he didn’t fulfil their expectations at all.

He let himself be tortured and put on a cross. That wasn’t how they had imagined it- Messiah on a cross, definitely not something they expected from their King. More about Christ as King here:

Donald Trump, on the other hand, is an appealing politician, with prosperity on his mind instead of suffering, a politician who has done so much for Israel already and is willing to do even more, in other words- almost a perfect substitution to the real Messiah. But is he ready to accept such a “responsibility”? The links below may give us the answer:

Donald Trump thanks Wayne Allyn Root for “the very nice words”! And, after citing him, adds “Wow!”.

Is Mr. Trump just being polite or…?

at 1:36 min:

Rev 13:5 The beast 1 was given a mouth to utter proud words 2and blasphemies

Rev 13:5 (NIV)

 

Do you see where it all leads to?

 

 

Whom are Jews expecting to come?

 

First of all, it is important to emphasize that for the prophecies to be fulfilled it is NOT necessary that the Antichrist is widely proclaimed as THE Messiah that Jews have been waiting for thousands of years. Donald Trump will do the proclamation himself (like he has already done on a smaller scale)!

In order to be worthy of that, he will try to achieve something in political realm that Jesus Christ didn’t (Jesus Christ never intended or tried that though). Even Jesus’s disciples had some prior political expectations, like here:

Acts 1:6 So when they had gathered together, they began to ask him, 1 “Lord, is this the time when you are restoring the kingdom to Israel?

Acts 1:4 (NET)

Basically, Jews have always expected the Messiah to be a political leader only, not their moral leader. Trump can do that!

Again, that doesn’t mean Jews will accept him as the Messiah, but that’s not necessary…

So what exactly do Jews expect today?

Here’s a piece from an article in beingjewish.com called “Why Jews don’t believe in Jesus”:

Sourse: http://www.beingjewish.com/toshuv/whynotbrief.html

 

Some comments on the article:

1- “announces peace”. Who could better serve this purpose than the author of a bestseller “The Art of the Deal”?

2- Is it going to be the new world religion in collaboration with the False prophet?

3- The author of the original article typed “this” in bold not accidentally. Jesus brought meaningfulness to suffering. Jews wouldn’t except that.

To-do list for Mr. Trump:

It’s not to say that D. Trump is consciously fulfilling a sinister plan for all this to happen. But it’s all moving to the destination predicted by the Bible anyway.

There have been some interesting developments In recent years:

https://www.israeltoday.co.il/read/rabbis-urge-trump-putin-to-help-rebuild-temple-in-jerusalem/

https://www.israel365news.com/105767/new-special-edition-temple-coin-minted-for-israels-70th-anniversary-the-end-of-the-exile/

https://www.israel365news.com/134685/trump-initiate-building-third-temple-head-edom/

By the way, there are doubts, rightfully so, whether a physical temple really must be built before some other prophesised events can happen. More on this you can read here:https://www.cogwriter.com/jewishtemple.htm So, although it’s very close to be built, but possibly the Third Temple will never be built, or maybe only after the return of our Lord.

Israel unveils ‘Trump Heights’ settlement

And finally, the cherry on the cake:

 

So many Jews surround Donald Trump! And we are not anti-Semites, of course,- simply mentioning an interesting fact. How do his Jewish relations compare to the other allegedly Antichrists’? Surely, non of them comes even close to Mr. Trump what concerns his connections to this nation. It’s important because Israel will have a central place in the end of times events.

The Bible explains it all:

Jn 5:16 Now because Jesus was doing these things 1 on the Sabbath, the Jewish leaders 2 began persecuting 3 him. >>

Jn 5:17 So he 1 told 2 them……

 

……….Jn 5:37 And the Father who sent me has himself testified about me. You people 1 have never heard his voice nor seen his form at any time, 2 >>
Jn 5:38 nor do you have his word residing in you, because you do not believe the one whom he sent. >>
Jn 5:39 You study the scriptures thoroughly 1 because you think in them you possess eternal life, 2 and it is these same scriptures 3 that testify about me, >>
Jn 5:40 but you are not willing to come to me so that you may have life. >>
Jn 5:41 “I do not accept 1 praise 2 from people, 3 >>
Jn 5:42 but I know you, that you do not have the love of God 1 within you. >>
Jn 5:43 I have come in my Father’s name, and you do not accept 1 me. If someone else comes in his own name, you will accept 2 him. >>

Jn 5:16-43 (NET)

The Day of the Lord

2Thes 2:1 Now regarding the arrival 1 of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to be with him, 2 we ask you, brothers and sisters, 3 >>
2Thes 2:2 not to be easily 1 shaken from your composure or disturbed by any kind of spirit or message or letter allegedly from us, 2 to the effect that the day of the Lord is already here.
2Thes 2:3 Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not arrive until the rebellion comes 1 and the man of lawlessness 2 is revealed, the son of destruction. 3 >>
2Thes 2:4 He 1 opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, and as a result he takes his seat 2 in God’s temple, displaying himself as God. 3 >>
2Thes 2:5 Surely you recall 1 that I used to tell you these things while I was still with you. >>
2Thes 2:6 And so 1 you know what holds him back, 2 so that he will be revealed in his own time.
2Thes 2:7 For the hidden power of lawlessness 1 is already at work. However, the one who holds him back 2 will do so until he is taken out of the way, >>
2Thes 2:8 and then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord 1 will destroy by the breath of his mouth and wipe out by the manifestation of his arrival. >>
2Thes 2:9 The arrival of the lawless one 1 will be by Satan’s working with all kinds of miracles 2 and signs and false wonders, >>
2Thes 2:10 and with every kind of evil deception directed against 1 those who are perishing, because they found no place in their hearts for the truth 2 so as to be saved. >>
2Thes 2:11 Consequently 1 God sends on them a deluding influence 2 so that they will believe what is false. >>
2Thes 2:12 And so 1 all of them who have not believed the truth but have delighted in evil will be condemned. 2

2Thes 2:1-12 (NET)

The day of the Lord is close at hand…

How close? According to the Bible, the Antichrist will take part in the last events and only then Jesus Christ returns he will be thrown to the lake of fire along with the False Prophet.

Rev 19:19 Then 1 I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies assembled to do battle with the one who rode the horse and with his army. >>
Rev 19:20 Now 1 the beast was seized, and along with him the false prophet who had performed the signs on his behalf 2 – signs by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. Both of them were thrown alive into the lake of fire burning with sulfur. 3

Rev 19:20 (NET)

Considering Mr. Trump’s age and recent developments, this is going to happen very very soon!


First presidential trip abroad

 

President Trump visited Saudi Arabia, Israel, Vatican. By the way, he also met with Palestinian and Italian leaders, but meeting them clearly wasn’t the main reason for the trip.

Oh man, was that trip weird!

Saudi Arabia

He first visited Saudi Arabia. One of world’s biggest peacemakers signed a largest single arms deal in US history: worth US$110 billion immediately, and $350 billion over 10 years…..How about that? Was it to secure an ally for Israel for many years ahead? Of course, the deal created thousands of jobs for military industry and contributed to the US budget. But what was the main reason?

 

Nice photo from that visit:

Next country was, of course, Israel.

Israel

Now when 1 they are saying, “There is peace and security,” 2 then sudden destruction comes on them, like labor pains 3 on a pregnant woman, and they will surely not escape

1Thes 5:3 (NET)

 

By the way, by “destruction” a military attack by Iran and his allies is thought to be referred here.

Never before did first US president’s trip abroad include Israel. And immediately upon his arrival they all started repeating those words cited above. How many times did they repeat “peace”, “safety” (security) in this video? Is it just a coincidence? Watch from 10:35 Prime Minister Netanyahu and from 15:10 President Trump speaking:

Vatican

By the way,  during the first trip Mr. Trump visited all three countries that hold special importance to believers of all three monotheist religions (also called Abrahamic religions)- Islam, Judaism, Christianity. A coincidence?
