The attributes of the Antichrist
This man of perdition is arrogant and proud. He does not have a sense of equity or justice for the poor. He doesn’t hesitate to attack and insult people who disagree with him. According to the Book of Daniel, he will have a severe and steely look or countenance.
At the same time he is a celebrity–with a lot of charisma. Of course, he is a very smooth communicator. He is powerful and rich, but on the other hand is a con artist. He deceives even the very elect.
He will be a master deal maker, especially in the Middle East. He will cause the nations of the world to believe and trust him. He will be a tough man and a strong man. He will have an uncanny knack of getting certain things done.
He will suffer major setbacks which are turned into victories. He will be a “king of fierce countenance.” He will “exalt and magnify himself.” Therefore he is an egomaniac.
Let’s look at the worldwide situation today. Vladimir Putin sees our President as a “shortcut to achieving his dreams.” Putin desires the break-up of NATO, the EU in chaos, the takeover of the Ukraine Republic with dominance over Georgia. He wants the establishment of Russian control over the Eastern European countries.
But Putin, if he is the Antichrist, has the keys to Russian nuclear missiles. One Russian nuclear sub can hit the U.S. with 200 hydrogen bombs. This destroys 200 cities.
Let’s look at Putin’s history:
- In 1970 he began law school at Leningrad University. He graduated in 1975 and joined the KGB. He was head of the KGB until 1991.
- In 1983 he married Lyudmilla.
- In the summer of 1996 he moved into a house he had built in St. Petersburg.
- After building it for six years, he lived in it only six weeks and it suddenly burned down, due to an incorrectly installed sauna.
- He rescued his family and barely got out alive.
- On August 9, 1999, at the time of the solar eclipse over Europe, he became the Russian Prime Minister.
- On January 14, 2000, he announced a new Russian Security Doctrine–Russia has first-strike ability and can use nuclear weapons first in a time of war.
I don’t know for certain who the Antichrist is, but it is certain that he will rule with an iron hand the world for a period of 3.5 years:
Revelation 13:5 “And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.”
Putin has provided Iran with reprocessed uranium, which is necessary for the production of nuclear weapons. Russia has also stated that it is suspending the Arms Limitation Treaty with the US because of the US Missile Defense Plan.
In 1938 in Germany we witnessed the rise of Hitler. It started as a nationalistic movement and it became global nationalism–i.e., the Third Reich. The world is a very complex place–the only way to find out who the Antichrist may be is a direct revelation.
But we know he is alive and well and out there. This is the year he will be made manifest. This is the 70th year–the generation–since the establishment of Israel. All is in harmony for the appearance of the Man of Perdition this year. Perhaps we have to continue looking at various world rulers and eliminate them–by process of elimination, whoever is left, however improbable, is the Antichrist.
For a look at the post-Apocalyptic world, read my book The End of Days on Amazon. You know, this whole situation is almost upon us. It will begin according to the revelation I have in 2018. It reminds me of Stalin, who had been warned precisely no less than 80 times that Hitler was about to invade Russia. He was even given a precise date–June 21/22–by a Russian spy in Japan. He was in complete denial until the end, when three million German troops, accompanied by hundreds of thousands of tanks and armored vehicles, entered his country. We have had a similar level of direct warnings from the Almighty. Time is up.
