“Five Groups Now Being Prepared for the Coming of Antichrist”
by A Sadlier   
October 1st, 2007

Today there are two prospective kingdoms on a collision course.

God has appointed a man to rule the world. Luke 1:33 says “and of His kingdom there shall be no end.” The hymn says accurately, “Jesus shall reign where’er the sun, does its successive journeys run, His kingdom stretch from shore to shore, ‘til moons shall wax and wane no more.” Paul said, “That at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow” Phil. 2: 10. That day will surely come.

Satan has chosen a man to rule the world. John said, “and all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life, of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” Rev. 13:8 Satan will try to use this man as a front man to bring the world to worship him.

These two rulers, two powers, are on a collision course. We have two coming world rulers! Herein lays the great conflict of the last days.

The children of Israel will be the people on whom the rule of Christ will focus. The Land of Israel will be the land at the centre of Christ’s rule.

Satan knows that if he can destroy the children of Israel, Christ’s kingdom will never be realized.

Satan knows if he can take the land of Israel away from the children of Israel, Christ’s kingdom will never be realized.

This is exactly the struggle that is going on in the world today! Not that Israel is right with God today, she is not! That doesn’t change the issue of the hour, in a soon coming day she will get right with God.

When Christ comes to set up His kingdom, it will be at the end of the tribulation period. When He comes, all of the signs of His coming will be completely fulfilled. (Mt 24)

When Antichrist comes to set up his kingdom, it will be at the beginning of the tribulation period (2 Thessalonians 2: 1 – 3).

We have an outline of events which will introduce the tribulation period (the day of the Lord).

Massive Apostasy in the Church

2 Thessalonians 2:3 “A falling away”

= Apostasy, departure from a previous position.

All through the church age there have been those who turn away from the faith, but this verse refers to a massive great last day’s apostasy, by those who have previously professed allegiance to the truth.

The Rapture of the Church

The great monolithic structure of unregenerate Christendom will remain on earth after the rapture.

The Appearance of Antichrist

“and that man of sin be revealed” 2 Thessalonians 2:4

The European Union is Being Prepared

The EU is most certainly the infrastructure of the Revived Roman Empire (RRE). It claims, emphatically, that it is.

When the church is raptured Antichrist will suddenly appear out of the EU and fashion the RRE which will consist of ten rulers. Right now a number of things are happening in the EU

They are preparing to ratify a constitution which will give them a single leader in whose hands will be great power.

They are building up a powerful army. If the 27 nations of the EU were to place all of their armies under central control, it would be the world’s largest army.

They are preparing to establish themselves as the negotiator of a Mid-east peace deal.

All of this prepares a platform for Antichrist to come on the scene and fulfill his role.

Israel is Being Prepared

Israel is becoming more desperate with each passing day. They are surrounded by formidable enemies, Syria, Iran, Hamas and Hezbollah.

Surrounded by thousands of missiles, Iran boasts that is has 600 missiles aimed at Israel, ready to fire.

The threat of nuclear weapons has now spread from Iran to Syria.

It is desperation which will drive them into the lap of Antichrist with his phony peace accord.

The Palestinians are Being Prepared

The present events are exacting a tremendous toll on the Palestinian people. They are being ground to powder. Turmoil and hardship are all about them, they will welcome a peace which seems to promise them something.

Islam is Being Prepared

The religion of Islam has its own eschatology; they are looking for their savior, the Mahdi.

In Islam’s eschatology, the Mahdi will do much the same as Antichrist will do. In fact there is such a similarity that when Antichrist comes, Islam could easily be deceived into believing that he is their Mahdi. Of course that deception would be a “temporary deception”.

Christendom is Being prepared

William Johnston has said, “something very powerful is emerging … we are witnessing a spiritual revolution of great magnitude in the whole world … the rise of a new school of mysticism in Christianity.”

New age mysticism is being introduced into all areas of life. It comes into the church as well, through contemplative prayer, labyrinth prayer, centering prayer.

Churches of all denominations, including evangelicals, are being brought together by this teaching. It appears that this new uniting factor will sweep the apostasizing church back to Rome. The world will have a counterfeit church for a counterfeit Christ, the Antichrist.

Political leaders of the western world are now finally realizing that they cannot solve the world’s problems, they cannot placate rampaging Islam. They are being prepared to turn to the religious leaders to help solve the world’s crisis situation.

Vladimir Putin has stated “The world is headed for a clash of culture, (Islam & Christianity) and only the unification of religious leaders can prevent a disaster”.

Rev. 17:3 describes a union of political power under Antichrist with the church of the last days.

Let me give you the scenario of the last days as I see it, as a Berean you need to study this for yourself:

  1. American military and economic power has to be neutralized. They are too powerful today to allow end times events to unfold. This may happen after the rapture.
  2. The trumpet will sound and we will join with Jesus in the Father’s presence. How awesome!
  3. Antichrist will fashion the EU into a 10 unit RRE.
  4. The peace treaty of Daniel 9:27 will be confirmed.
  5. The tribulation period will begin.

Today, everywhere we look, we see the biblical scenario of the last days unfolding. I am reminded of the words of George Bush Sr. “If it walks like a duck and looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it’s a duck”.
