Luke 10:18 "And Jesus said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from Heaven." = Anti-Christ
So many strange and unnatural things are happening in our world today; many are believing we are seeing the latter days as prophesied in the Bible. The reason being; people are turning from God's ways in their living. Almighty God created both the Heavens and the Earth, and was so proud of it: He created man and woman to share it with Him. That shows His true loving nature to all who know Him as their true and only God. The ways of God are always right and He wants people to live by them. That is why He permitted His only begotten Son, Jesus to suffer the terrible crucifixion. He sent Him into this sinful world to be a pattern for this flesh and blood life and an example how God wants all to live it. Some are inclined to criticize God for doing that, but consider where Jesus is now. Yes, Jesus paid a terrible price to do God's will and be the example we should accept and choose to live by, but He is now eternally in Heaven with God where we should want to be. And God promises we will be if we accept Jesus as our pattern for life and live by it. Again, the trouble we are witnessing in our world today is going to get much worse, unlike anything that has yet happened. Many people will lose their lives and it will get so bad, Satan as Anti-Christ will suddenly appear. He will be permitted a short rein of 42 months. He will speak great things and do many miracles to deceive people. All will worship him, whose names are not written in the Lamb's Book of Life. He will sit in the temple of God and claim to be the returning Savior Christ. Then he will turn into the Satan he really is and impose the greatly feared tribulation. According to the Bible, it will be the worst thing the world will ever see, and millions will lose their lives. I wish it could be otherwise, but if you believe the Bible, you have to know that it is true. And friends, it could be in our future. He will come as a thief in the night as prophesied. None will have a warning. Why will it happen? The answer is simple. People will continue to turn from God's ways until He permits it. If you believe the Bible, you know it will be seen as it is prophesied. Whether you believe it or try to prepare for it or not, it is going to happen.
