Re: Pope Pushes Idea of Global Authority at Confer

1 John 2:18

Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

Consider this, the word used here for time is the Greek word which means hour, time, season, time of day, a time period. The Greek Ὥρα is ἐσχάτη, which means the very last, the ending. There is no way around the wording that they were expecting these anti-Christs during their time of which they were living. These were time indicators which gave them a heads up to following events. They were specific warnings to the people leaving at that time. Unless the book of the Revelation was just blank unintelligible pages for 2,000 years. I personally don't believe so. They couldn't be ignoring these words because the Beast wouldn't be on the scene until Donald Trump or Barack Obama came along. Or the invention of YouTubes?

I just watched today the Bible project videos about the book of revelation. Very interesting perspective: https://thebibleproject.com/explore/revelation/

Re: Pope Pushes Idea of Global Authority at Confer

The story board artists video portray Revelation to be relevant to the first century Christians. While being able to teach generations after the significance of the Kingdom of God, the bride and the groom. While I don't agree with everything they sure didn't monkey around with the Mark of the Beast. Thumbs up to the animators for throwing in that you can't find any of this stuff in headlines. Good job coksiw

What are you thoughts? and please explain with bible references.
There is no singular Antichrist, except the spirit of Antichrist (rejection of apostolic truth). There are many Antichrists, according to the Bible, and they were present in the first century.

The Beast? Which one? The Bible speaks of several.

The modern day Jews aren't Judah or Israel, so prophecies about Israel aren't even about them.

Armageddon is not said to be an attack on Jerusalem or the Jews, but is a vision of a battle between Christ and His saints vs the two Beasts and their armies of a "world order", representing the conflict between the world and the Kingdom of God.

Re: Pope Pushes Idea of Global Authority at Confer

In an offshoot of the Roman Catholic church Sedevacantism believes in the prophecy of St Malachy. Brother Baxter Jr believes it, and has written (well, maybe not him personally, but one of his employees) an article concerning it.
