Title: ANTICHRIST

ANTICHRIST UNMASKED
Revelation Of Hope
T

2
What does the Bible mean when it talks about
Anti-Christ?
  • 1 John 218-22 (1207)
  • 1 John 41-3 (1208)
  • 2 John 1-11 (1210)
  • Antichrist against Christ or in place of
    Christ attacking Christs character,
    specifically with regard to love expressed in
    obedience to the commandments

3
What is one method that Satan uses to "deny"
Christ?
2 Corinthians 113-4, 13-15 (1133)
Appear as "apostles of Christ" but preach a
"different Jesus"
4
"For false Christs and false prophets will arise
and show great signs and wonders, so as to
mislead, if possible, even the elect." -Matthew
2424
5
Is "Anti-Christ" just a general description, or
is there a specific application to a particular
entity? Is the identity of the "Anti-Christ" a
Secret? When will the identity be revealed?
2 Thessalonians 21-12 (1170)
6
A deceptive power under Satan's influence has
been at work throughout Christian history.
7
This power "displays himself as being God" but
will be revealed as the "man of sin" and "son of
destruction" just before Jesus returns.
God also warns us that He will allow all who "do
not believe the truth, but take pleasure in
wickedness" to be deceived by this power.
8
Does the Bible give us a way to identify
the Anti-Christ?

Dan 83 - Then I lifted my gaze and looked, and
behold, a ram which had two horns was standing in
front of the canal. Now the two horns were long,

longer one coming up last.

horns represents the kings of Media and Persia.

Dan 85,8 - While I was observing, behold, a male
goat was coming from the west over the surface of
the whole earth without touching the ground and
the goat had a conspicuous horn between his
eyes Then the male goat magnified himself
exceedingly. But as soon as he was mighty, the
large horn was broken and in its place there
came up four conspicuous horns toward the four
winds of heaven.
21
Dan 821-22 - "And the shaggy goat represents the
kingdom of Greece, and the large horn that is
between his eyes is the first king "And the
broken horn and the four horns that arose in its
place represent four kingdoms which will arise
from his nation, although not with his power.

Daniel asks the angel to tell him more about
the little horn power.
Daniel 715-27
31
The little horn power is the "Anti-Christ"
Daniel 7 gives us ten characteristics that
identify the little horn power
32
Ten Characteristics of the "Anti-Christ"
  1. Arises out of Roman Empire v.8
  2. Arises among 10 divisions of Rome (Europe) v.8
  3. Arises after 10 divisions are established v.8
  4. Uproots 3 of the kingdoms v.8
  5. Has a man at its head (eyes mouth) v.8
  6. Persecutes Gods people v.21, 25
  7. Different than the other 10 nations v.24
  8. Speak blasphemies against God v.8, 11, 20, 25
  9. Change times laws v.25
  10. Have power for time, times, ½ time v.25

33
An Historical Fulfillment
The Roman Catholic Papacy (as a political power)
34
1. Arises out of the Roman Empire 2.
Arises among the 10 divisions of Rome
35
3. Arises after 10 divisions are
established (AD 476)
The Roman Emperor Justinian gave the Bishop of
Rome political authority in AD 538.
36
4. Uproots three kingdoms
(Ostragoths fell last in AD 538)
37
5. Has a man at its head (eyes mouth of a man)
The pope provides vision for the Catholic church
and speaks "ex cathedra" to the church on behalf
of God
38
"This living transmission, accomplished in the
Holy Spirit, is called Tradition, since it is
distinct from Holy Scripture, though closely
connected to it"...
..."As a result, the Church does not derive her
certainty about all revealed truths from the holy
Scriptures alone. Both Scripture and Tradition
must be accepted and honored equally."
..."The task of interpreting the Word of God
Scripture Tradition authentically has been
entrusted solely to the Magesterium of the
Church, that is, to the Pope and the bishops..."
-- Catechism of the Catholic Church, articles 78,
82, 85, 100. April 1995
39
Tradition vs Scripture???
"In vain do they worship Me, teaching as
doctrines the precepts of men. Neglecting the
commandment of God, you hold to the tradition of
men." -- Mark 77-8
40
Can only priests interpret the Bible correctly?
"Now these Bereans were more noble minded than
those in Thessalonica, for they received the word
with great eagerness, examining the scriptures
daily, to see whether these things were so."
-- Acts 1711
41
6. Persecutes God's People
At least 50 Million people were killed by Papal
authority during the Dark Ages
"The church may by divine right confiscate the
property of heretics, imprison their person, and
condemn them to the flames.
In our age, the right to inflict the
severest penalties, even death, belongs to the
church. There is no graver offense than heracy,
therefore it must be rooted out."
-- Public Eccliastical, Vol. 2, p.142
42
7. Different Than Other 10 Horns
The Vatican is a Religio-Political entity with
legal authority over very few, but with
eccliastical authority over almost a billion
people !!
43
8. Speaks Blasphemies Against God
The Bible defines blasphemy as 1. A man
claiming to be God (John 1033) 2.
Claimimg the ability to forgive sin (Luke
521)
44
(No Transcript)
45
A man claiming to be God...
"The Pope is not only the representative of
Jesus Christ, but he is Jesus Christ, Himself,
hidden under the veil of flesh." -- Catholic
National, July 1895
46
A man claiming to forgive sin...
"...you will find but one created being who can
forgive the sinner, who can free him from the
chains of hell,...the Roman Catholic priest...the
priest not only declares that the sinner is
forgiven
but he really forgives him...So great is the
power of the priest that the judgements of Heaven
itself are subject to his decision." -- The
Catholic Priest, p.78-79

The founders of the modern Protestant churches
knew who the Anti-Christ was !!
82
Martin Luther (1483-1546) Lutheran
"We here are of the conviction that the Papacy is
the seat of the true and real Antichrist...person
ally, I declare that I owe the Pope no other
obedience than that to Antichrist." (1520)
- The Prophetic Faith of Our Fathers, Froom
83
John Calvin (1509-1564) Presbyterian
"Some persons think us too severe and sensious
when we call the Roman pontiff Antichrist...
I shall briefly show that Paul's words (2 Thess.
2) are not capable of any other interpretation
than that which applies them to the Papacy." -
Institutes
84
John Knox (1505-1572) Presbyterian
"...the Pope should be recognized as the very
Antichrist, and the son of perdition, of whom
Paul speaks." - The Zurich Letters
85
Cotton Mather (1663-1728) Cogregationalist
"The oracles of God foretold the rising of an
Antichrist in the Christian Church and in the
Pope of Rome, all the characteristics of that
Antichrist are so marvelously answered,
that if any who read the Scriptures do not
see it, there is a marvelous blindness upon
them." - The Fall of Babylon
86
Hasn't the Papacy changed since the middle ages?
What has happened to the new Ecumenical spirit of
Vatican II?
87
Thomas Cranmer (1489-1556) Anglican
"Whereof it followeth Rome to be the seat of
antichrist, and the pope to be very antichrist
himself. I could prove the same by many other
scriptures, old writers, and strong reason." -
Works
88
John Wesley (1703-1791) Methodist
"He the Pope is in an emphatical sense, the Man
of Sin...and he is, too, properly styled as the
Son of Perdition...He it is that exalteth himself
above all that is called God...
claiming the perogatives which belong to God
alone." - Antichrist and His Ten Kingdoms
89
Roger Williams (1603-1683) 1st Baptist Pastor in
America
"The Pope is the pretended Vicar of Christ on
earth, who sits as God over the Temple of God,
exalting himself... over the Spirit of
Christ, over the Holy Spirit, yea and God
himself...
thinking to change times and laws but he is the
son of perdition." - The Prophetic Faith of Our
Fathers, Froom.
