In the past couple weeks I have read a number of articles about the growing satanic worship movement in the United States.  Satanist clubs are being set up in schools in order to balance out the effect of Christian clubs.  A great symbol being set up in Central Park in New York City that honors Baal.  Whhhaaaaat??  Add to that the article which spoke of the decline of Bible reading within the church and the rise of Christians who don’t even know what the Bible teaches about major issues of the day…not that it isn’t in the Bible.  It is. People just don’t read it to know.  Add to that the fact that many church leaders no longer preach from the Bible, and some do not even mention the name of Jesus!!!

We live in a world where children are no longer educated at home, nor in the church,about the core of Christian belief.  They have no standard on which to base any belief, and so the minute it is challenged by something that sounds good, they crumble. 

Our entire society no longer has a standard by which it can know right from wrong.   

How is all of this paving the way for the Antichrist? Simple.  The Bible tells us that he will be a man who is pleasing to look at (appearing stronger or greater than others).  One who will speak well (using pompous words, able to speak in a very convincing manner).  People will follow him in droves (they will be in awe of him and will worship him).  It will not matter who he is, what he stands for, or what his background is.  He will be powerful, successful, proud, and deceitful.

But it will be enough that he will know the words the world wants to hear, and they will follow blindly.  To read these descriptions for yourself, and I encourage you to do so, read the following:  Daniel 7:20-21, 24-27; Daniel 8:23-25; and Revelations 13:3-18.  Remember that the antichrist is symbolically represented as a horn and as a beast.

As the dumbing down of society and of Christians worldwide continues, the door is opening wider and wider for the pompous, arrogant, strong, convincing, powerful, successful, but deceitful and evil antichrist to step foot into a position of leadership that will turn the whole world to follow him like little puppies.

I’ve said it before, and I will say it again.  If Christians are not reading their Bibles, how will they know when false teachers, preachers, prophets, and eventually the antichrist, teach them lies against God and His truth, and lead them to belief and worship of someone other than YAHWEH, the one true God? 

If you change the characteristics of God, whether to make Him who you want Him to be, or whether it be from ignorance, it makes no difference.  If you have changed Him, then you do not worship Him.  You worship a god of your own making, and that god cannot offer salvation because he is not real.  Study your Bible.  Know without a doubt who YAHWEH is and why you put your faith in Him.  And in so doing, you will guard your hearts and minds from the deceptions that come increasingly more and more each day.

If we think things are bad now, I don’t believe we will have long to wait before we watch in horror (hopefully watch, and not participate) in the glorification of the man who will declare himself to be god and demand the world worship him.  BE ON YOUR GUARD!!!  Take responsibility for your own soul.  Educate yourself!  READ THE BIBLE…READ THE BIBLE…READ THE BIBLE!!!!!
