Who is the antichrist?...01/20/2013 Rev 13

Some of us remember years ago when you used to hear on your black and white TV, "Look, up in the sky, it’s a bird, it’s a plane, no it’s Superman"

This man was a super human who could perform amazing things. ****He was able to leap tall buildings in a single bound…more powerful than a locomotive…..always saving Lois Lane at the last second.

He was my hero back in the 50’s as a young boy…never missed a episode ….after watching Superman one Saturday morning…I got one of my Moms bath towels off the cloths line …tied it around my neck jumping and leaping and wondering why I couldn’t fly….

I headed for the feed barn …climbed up the ladder to the loft and jumped…you might have guessed…even with my sweet Moms big ol bath towel I couldn’t fly and hit the ground….Lord was with me though…not a broken bone or scratch…but, my Mom left strips on Supermans legs for getting her towel dirty.

***********************

There is coming a powerful leader during the seven-year tribulation period.

The Bible says much about this world leader.

****

John introduced this man in Revelation in 6:2: And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer

He is riding a white horse, signifying peace-- a world peacemaker. His weapon is a bow with no arrows, signifying that he gains victory by politics or worldly tactics.

He comes as the superman of the human race to bring peace to the Middle East by signing a seven-year treaty with Israel and the surrounding nations according to (Dan. 9:27).

He goes into the world as a conqueror with one thing in mind

To be a world emperor.

He is "Antichrist - the Man of Sin".

*******************

Folks the world is desperate for a Saviour these days…but, one who will rescue them from all their self-inflicted problems.

Many have rejected and many more will continue to reject Jesus as their Saviour.

**************

It’s obvious that our country has turned its back on the God we serve….the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob …the living God that came to this Earth as Jesus Christ the one who Apostle Paul said in Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved

But not only America is blinded by their own self-centered pride but, leaders all over the world look for an answer and then blame each other if something doesn’t work.

The constant threat of war, economic uncertainty, terrorism, disease, we need some kind of healthcare that would be fair and affordable to everyone.

They say it gets harder and harder to do world trade because of the different in the value of currencies in all countries.

******************

All the problems of the world are preparing to accept what will be its last great human world leader…the antichrist…which the Bible describes in detail.

******************************

We won’t have time tonight to go through every detail but, we will look some things about him…...

his character …where he comes from and maybe part of his plan.

Lets start in Revelation chapter 13 and verse 4…and lets look at the antichrist character first.

Revelation 13:

4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.

6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.

********************************

We see in verse 4 that he has the character of Satan because that’s who gives him the power…

This man will be filled with the spirit of Satan….possessed you might say….a human filled with the spirit of the Devil.

******

Verse 4 also says they will worship the dragon….which is Satan because he gave his authority to this beast the Bible calls him.

They worshipped the beast, saying, who is like unto the beast? Who is able to make war with him?.....he is a very smooth talker.

This is a great time for Satan….he is enjoying every minute of it.

The whole world is going to worship him during this time….the world of unbelievers at that time might think….this is great

***Christians talked about having faith and worshiping someone we can’t see but, now we have someone we can see and he is powerful…the whole world is his friend because he has super powers…he is our superman…..super hero….but, all that changes very quick.
