A NEW UNIVERSAL POPE?
Probably during the first 3½ years, some great religious leader arises, called in the Bible: "the False prophet."
He seems like some spiritual authority, who woos and entices all the
people in the world, with a "basic human religious need", but who aren't
prepared to believe the "style-cramping" God of the "fundamentalists!"
He does not seem to seek worship solely for himself, but rather deceives the entire world population into worshipping the Antichrist!
He does so by performing signs and wonders, perhaps scientific "miracles" like "calling down fire from the sky!"--Atomic Power, or a new form of energy perhaps, like cold fusion? Or economical Solar Power? Or perhaps even anti-gravity propulsion, empowering so-called "flying saucers" in which the Antichrist may even arrive on the world scene, deceiving the worldlings that he is some kind of extra-terrestrial?--The terrible king from the sky that Nostradamus foresaw?
Again, time will definitely tell! But remember Jesus' own warning, that the deception will be so great worldwide, that if it were possible, the very elect of His chosen children would fall for the deception as well! "Be ye not deceived!"
beast", unlike the other
beasts--governments or empires--that came up "out
of the sea" or the people, this beast
rises up out of the earth!
Perhaps this is symbolic of authority by religion, as opposed
to authority by election of the people? Time will tell.
LIKE A LAMB"
"It had two horns"--kings
or kingdoms--"like a lamb", in other
words resembling Christianity or even Jesus Himself, who is also
called "the Lamb
slain from the foundation of the world."
But these lamb's horns are from a false lamb, a false
Christ or a false Christianity, professing to be Christian, yet
speaking like the Devil. Like Bill Clinton going to church on Sunday,
and coming out defends murder of unborn babies. A Christian nation that
stands up against so-called "rogue" countries like Saddam's Iraq and
Libya's Khaddaffi, justifying crusades against them, like the gulf war,
which was actually fought over oil!
Or two lamb's horns may signify 2 religious powers, some
new religion taking Christianity's place, either by replacement or via
infiltration. Could they represent New Age elements in both Catholicism
and Protestantism, finally succumbing to a new false Christ
and this false "John the Baptist", the False
Prophet? Some kind of ultimate dangerous fusion
of Church and State, a New Age world religion supported
by the One
World Government? Or, do
these 2 horns mean infiltrated Christianity and ISLAM,
as Moslems also believe in Jesus, as a prophet and the
"spirit of God!" ("Isa Ruh Allah")
--The one horn believing that a new "Christ" has "come
again", and the other that the "Majih"--the predicted Moslem
Savior--has finally arrived? Again, time will tell!
CHRISTIANS & MOSLIMS WON'T BE DECEIVED!
Both true Christians and true Muslims,
will not stand for this "False
prophet" or be hoodwinked
by this "Messih el Daijel" the Moslim name for the Antichrist,
the false "one eyed" anti-God impostor, foretold in the Quran!
They will all 'smell a rat', Even the legalistic, orthodox Jews,
will finally discover that the Antichrist is NOT their
Messiah after all, as he will desecrate their new temple, halt and abolish
and finally outlaw all these "Fundamentalist religionists!"
Especially when the False Prophet,
finally puts an idol, a false image, which Jesus called "the
in that very temple, all 3 monotheistic religions will be offended
by this idolatry. Especially when they, by rejecting this super idol,
cannot buy and sell their basic needs anymore. Then, a true
"separation of church and state" will occur, because all
true worshippers of the one true God, will stay true to their
covenants with Him, and either fight for their religion or stand up
for their faith, many of them dying in the process! Jesus told His
followers, that when they shall "see
the Abomination of Desolation standing in the holy place",
to not stick around nor resist, if they can help it, but to FLEE!
And I saw another
beast coming up out
he had two
lamb, and he spoke as
And he exercises
all the power of
beast before him, and
them which dwell therein to worship
beast, whose deadly
wound was healed.
13 And he does great wonders,
so that he makes fire come
down from heaven on
the earth in
the sight of
men, 14 And deceives them
that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles
which he had power
to do in the sight of
saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make
to the beast, which
had the wound by a sword,
and did live.
15 And he had power to
give life unto
the image of the beast, that
the image of the beast should
and cause that
as many as would not worship the image
of the beast should be killed.
"And I saw three unclean spirits
like frogs, come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the
mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false
"And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that
wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them
that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped
his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning
with brimstone. Rev.
"And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire
and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and
shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. Rev.
