Pope Francis is beating Pope Emeritus in the annual contest,”who is most likely to be the Antichrist”. Right now he is a three to one favorite. Tom Horn, in Charisma magazine believes the current Pope is making an active push to unveil his Antichrist intentions.
Charisma magazine suggests things are aligning with the Biblical timetable adding, “Donald Trump may be the forerunner to the Messiah.” In visiting Trump’s hotel, Jim Bakker said it was like visiting God’s kingdom.
Don’t get me wrong, I believe every Bible verse about the coming of the Antichrist is true. But to borrow a phrase from Chesterton, “Who is the Antichrist? Me.”
John the Baptist was the opposite of the spirit of the Antichrist. John the Baptist’s life verse, “I must decrease so that He might increase.” My life verse, “I must increase until I reach the heavens.”
Unlike the Old Testament, which taught an upward mobility attached to the land of promise, the New Testament teaches “downward mobility.” Jesus asks us to leave family and friends and cleave unto Him. We suffer (God crucifies our ego) so that we might live. Lucifer’s fall from grace fills up only a few pages of Scripture.
Salvation is the process of turning the Antichrist within me and changing into a little Christ’s. Becoming a little Christ is a process. The first thing I need to do is stop pointing the finger at possible Antichrists reminding myself of the old adage, “When I point the finger there are four fingers point back at me.”
