I was inspired to write this after seeing that Britain decided to Brexit the EU. This is why. In my own studies of history, I observed a pattern in Europe. According to mine and others understanding of Biblical prophesy, the Antichrist will rise out of Europe, the empire of Roman Iron and Barbaric Clay.
Rather than this being a singular event, I believe it is a cyclic one. The scriptures said ” …the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming, and is now already in the world.” (I John 4:3). So, when John was writing he testified that the spirit of the antichrist was already present.
I believe the purpose of this entity is to fill the collective human belly with so much war and hatred and to push us to the point of permanent self-destruction, so that we will become horrified at the thought of perpetuating the power of Cain to take life. When this is finally completed in full, we will enter a 1000 year period of self-examination to determine what human works are worth keeping and what needs to be discarded. After that, we will face once more the designated advisory of humanity for a final transformation as a species.
The cyclic event of the appearance of the antichrist appears to have three recurrences:
- European unity (empire of Iron and Clay)
- Targeting the greatest concentration of Jews within reach (Poland – now that would be Israel)
- The alienation and ultimate enmity with Britain and Russia
The Good News in all of this is that before we can transform as a species that deserves immortality, we must lose faith in murder and killing as our ultimate solution. The sooner the antichrist establishes its final manifestation, the sooner we can get on with an immortal existence in the presence of the Infinite One. I think we will ALL be surprised when that veil is finally torn between God and mankind.
