I once read a story about a man of God who shot his wife. Understand that a man of God is first and foremost a man. In the heart of every Bishop, there is a Judas! If you give the devil space, there is no limit to the extent he can use you especially if he knows that you are a Pastor or a true child of God. He will take over and at that point, you are no longer in control. That is why you see extreme wickedness in the seat of governance in many countries of the world today. The devil likes to take the driver’s seat. When people give their heart over to the devil, there is no limit to the extent he will use them. His agenda is to steal, to kill and to destroy. Part of his agenda is to work against the purpose of God, to work against Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of the most high God.
The world is desperately sick. The healing of the world must start from the Church. The healing of the Church must start from the home and the healing of the home must start from man. Man’s will in union with the will of Lucifer is the greatest problem on earth. We established that the antichrist will be satan personified just as Jesus Christ is God personified. Rev. 13:2, John 14:7. We also mentioned that he will come from the revised Roman Empire the forth beast which is Western Europe or one of its offshoots. The Bible specifically said so in Dan. 7:8, 19-21, 24-25.
5. He will rule the whole world for seven years but will only show the fullness of his wickedness in the last three and half years.
Dan. 9:27, “And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.” This is the consummation of abomination. Seven weeks here refer to seven years. Rev. 13:5, “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.” At this time, the rapture of the true Church must have occurred.
Things that will facilitate the influence of the antichrist
- His great influence will be made easy through urbanization, the internet, mobile phone, satellite, cable TV, fashion, music, the World Bank, control of every power and one world religion. Technology is already advanced. This is a confirmation of the word of God in Daniel 12 verse 4 that in the last days, knowledge will increase. The revolution is on and gathering momentum at an alarming speed. Another name for one world religion is Ecumenism. This is just paving the way for the manifestation of the antichrist. One of the attributes of truth is that truth is not afraid to stand on its own; truth does not need anything else to be what it is. Truth is complete on its own. You are either in the way or you are not in it. The Bible says that there is a way that seems right but the end of it is death (Prov. 16:25).
Father, make it impossible for me to walk in the way that seems right but ultimately leads to death in Jesus name. Amen.
