CAN IT BE HAPPENING?
(Right before our eyes)

By Henry Jaegers


The Bible declares that certain events will occur before the return of our Lord. I am disturbed at times when people who claim to be followers of Christ, ignore them or look at them as events that will happen after we have died. If God’s word is true as we claim to believe, why do we continue to live as though it wasn’t important?

In this posting I would like to do two things. First remind you of the clear teaching of scripture regarding the rise of Anti Christ. Second I would like to present the possibilities of it happening right now and what we may see happening in the future based upon violations of principles of righteousness.

In Revelation 13, he is seen as the beast coming out of the sea. He will come as a great hero of the Godless society who seek to have all of sociological and carnal needs met. He will appear as a great savior of the needs of men; (a false Christ or Messiah.) His arrival is best interpreted as political, later joining with the false prophet causing a political and religious alliance to occur. In Revelation chapter 17 with the woman riding on the beast further illustrate this alliance. In Chapter 18 we see the collapse of the world’s economy taking place as a result of this reign of terror. We are not told when this collapse begins but it could easily begin at the outset of this reign and continue to get worse. It is important that we keep an eye on the economical scene and recognize this as a possibility of the beginning of the end times.

In II Thessalonians chapter 2, further signs are given. God will send a delusion on those who refuse truth in order that they may believe the lie, The Anti Christ will speak great flattering words (mostly lies) telling the people what they want to hear and giving them false hope.

Now for the possibilities of this being an every day reality. After the false Messiah takes control, people will begin to realize that they have been duped. His popularity will begin to wane. Something must be done to keep him from losing control. If there is a democratic type government, that must be changed. He must remove the possibility of free elections and to do this persuade his congress that it would be in their best interest to vote for the removal of free elections. Those so called public servants will welcome the possibility of having a permanent office without having to campaign any more.

Some think that it can’t happen in America. There will be many wars and disturbances taking place and false teachers. Could these disturbances be the result of not having a choice any longer The Supreme Court will not help as this congress will overrule their decisions.These events in Matthew 24 are not necessarily chronological. They can be occurring while all of these changes are taking place. We may be seeing it taking place and the possibility of their occurrence is something that should keep us faithful in our commitment to Christ. Those who are true will be put to the test. Those who are not will continue in the lie and face its consequences.
