A Man of Sin For All Seasons

man of sin?

“And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming; Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders”
–2THESSALONIANS 2:8-9

From time-to-time over the past twelve years, a number of proposals have been received which claim that the “antichrist” is living in Washington, DC in the Oval Office.

What started out as a riverlet of claims about George W. Bush being the antichrist turned into a tsunami of speculation when Barack Obama took office. Truly, Barack Obama inspired a legion of people who accused him of being the “antichrist.

Throughout his 3+ years in office, Donald Trump has lagged behind both Bush II and Obama in antichrist accusations–perhaps because one has a hard time imagining Donald Trump taking any job seriously, particularly the end times role of the man of sin.

So, to all those who propose that Donald Trump is the man of sin:

NO, he is NOT.

The same line of reasoning explained to the Bush and Obama finger-pointers applies to those who nominate Donald Trump as the man of sin.

THE MAN OF SIN WILL BE WILDLY POPULAR.

Hard to say that Donald Trump is popular with ANYONE.

Also, the man of sin (according to the Bible) will rise from the middle of the worldly church.

Donald Trump’s relationship with churches was so casual, he became the subject of late night comic’s jokes when he ran in 2016.

“We’re one week away from the Iowa caucuses and all the candidates are doing whatever they can to appeal to voters. Donald Trump even went to a church service in Iowa over the weekend. You can tell he doesn’t go to church much because he was like, ‘I really like the part where they passed me the basket of free money.’”
–Jimmy Fallon (2016)

ONE MORE REASON

The Bible CLEARLY says that the man of sin will be revealed (not that the vast majority of those who dwell upon the earth at the time will note the revelation–otherwise, they would not follow after the man of sin).

There will be NO need to speculate or otherwise burn the midnight oil on the matter.

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition”
–2THESSALONIANS 2:3

FINALLY

The man of sin is also called the false prophet (false Messiah) in the Bible.

“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 prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.”
–Revelation 16:13-14

“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.”
–Revelation 20:10

Hard to imagine Donald Trump being labeled as ANY type of prophet–even by those who depend on Trump for their living.

There are a number of other reasons from the Bible for the man of sin NOT being a US president.

Readers are invited to look for those other reasons if ever they are tempted to accuse a US president of being the man of sin.

DOES the reader believe the man of sin will be a political leader the reader does not like or agree with?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

DOES the reader believe he is saved?

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16

Faith vs Fire Insurance

telling stories around the fire

“But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
–Hebrews 11:6

During a recent discussion on why someone would want to forsake the pleasures and pitfalls of this world for the promises of the unseen next one, a common tactic–used by the worldly–was employed.

“I think I’m gonna wait and see.  There’s no harm in wanting to make sure, is there?”

One is tempted to ask, “What are you waiting for?  Do you think you’ll get a better deal elsewhere?”

But one doesn’t.

Instead, the perils of waiting until it’s too late are offered.

One of those perils–particularly in the end times–is that God’s seemingly endless mercy will not always be available to the lost.

Tender Mercies of the Lord: Will Not Always Be Available

Another peril–particularly in the end times–is that, at some point, God will decide that enough time has been made available for the lost.

At some point, God will know that everyone has made their choices.

At some point, God is going to say, “You want to believe lies, okay, I’ll not only let you believe tall tales and lies, but I will take away your choice whether to believe them or not.”

God does this by sending those who do not have a love of the truth a STRONG DELUSION.

And ALL who believe lies shall perish.

“And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: that they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”
–2THESSALONIANS 2:10-12

FINALLY, it is pointed out that what will become VERY important is GOD’s intentions, not MAN’s.

And God’s intentions for creating man is that God is looking for a people who will FREELY choose Him over everything else they could pick.

God is looking for a people.

He is looking for a people who freely choose Him when there are other, more carnal choices surrounding them. He is looking for a people who choose Him by faith, when the rewards of choosing God are afar off and not easily seen (at least to those using their physical eyesight).

“as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.”
2 Corinthians 6:16
GOD’S PLAN: God is Looking for a People

God is looking for a people who will choose HIm over money.

God is looking for a people who will choose Him over the things of this world.

God is looking for a people who have FAITH that God will abide by His promises.

God is NOT looking for people who hedge their bets; who grudgingly choose God AFTER every other option is closed.

God is NOT looking for people who see God as PLAN B.

God is NOT looking for people who want FIRE INSURANCE (a way to keep from burning in hell after time has run out) when it is evident that a forever eternity in hell beckons.

A person is saved from eternal damnation by the grace (mercy) of God through FAITH.

“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”
–Ephesians 2:8-9

Because modern man has been fed a line about “choosing God” or “making a choice for Jesus,” modern man believes that HE gets to make the choice.

WRONG.

God has ALWAYS made the choice.

Man can be saved IF he demonstrates FAITH.

So, what does the reader have: faith or fire insurance?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

Passing Along Modern Stories

what's your story

One of the unshakable beliefs of modern society is that, not only does one have a unique story, but that one should share the STORY of that unique episode with others.

How many times has the reader been told “Everybody has story“?

How many times has the reader been told “Everybody has a story TO TELL“?

How many times has the reader been invited to share his “unique” story with others? (“Everyone has a story to tell. What’s yours?”)

So, here is a question for the inquisitive reader: “What are the odds that people of the SAME human condition; who have been raised watching the SAME TV shows; who have been raised listening to the SAME music; who have all went through the SAME 13 years of indoctrination which K-12 provides; who work the SAME 9-5 jobs; who get the SAME propaganda from the SAME TV/smartphone/newspaper/magazine sources; who shop at the SAME stores; who live in the SAME type of housing; who look to the SAME political, government and cultural systems for guidance; ALL have a DIFFERENT story?”

The correct answer to this question can be demonstrated by the trivial details of some trivial event which certain people cling to as “evidence” that they have lived an interesting, DIFFERENT kind of life.

It can also be seen by the number of people who, coming up empty in the unique story department, admit: “I have a boring life.

Okay THEN: why do so many claim that everyone has a story and that story should be told?

Some observations follow.

1- It is highly likely–since the claim is repeated so often–that “Everybody has a story to tell” is just propaganda.

“But the most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly and with unflagging attention. It must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over. Here, as so often in this world, persistence is the first and most important requirement for success.”
–Adolf Hitler, Propaganda, the Big Lie and Adolf Hitler: 20 Hitler Quotes on Propaganda

2- Perhaps the invitation to share a story that one believes to be unique and DIFFERENT is an invitation for the highly-regimented worker bees of society to think of themselves as something other than the drones-living-the-same-lives that they really are?

3- Getting the individual to focus on some aspect of himself (his story) is a step along the path to placing a high value on SELF–and that is a step on the path of SELF worship, which leads to the worship of Satan.

MORE

There are other reasons for this invitation for the individual to pass along his story to other moderns becoming a regular part of daily propaganda.

The discussion will continue.

Does the reader believe that everyone has a story to tell?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.
