Antichrist 2020

“Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour.” 1 John 2:18

The antichrist has been active since before Adam & Eve. It is not just one person, although certain people personify antichrist very well. Pharaoh, Nero, and Hitler come to mind. Satan is the ultimate antichrist. He is opposed to everything that is good and honorable. He lies, murders, cheats, steals, and wants control. He is the ultimate malignant sociopathic narcissist. And he is making his move right now for a cashless, high tech communist society. It will probably fail. The question is when does Joseph’s famine hit? What will that ‘famine’ look like? It doesn’t need to be a famine of food. It was a famine of wheat. “Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift all of you as wheat.” Luke 22:31

The reason the famine comes to the Israelites is to draw them to Christ. They notice a severe shortage of wheat (christians). Are we at that point in history where christians are going to disappear? I don’t think so. The wheat famine is due to lack of rain. “Elijah was a human being, even as we are.  He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years.  Again he prayed, and the heavens gave rain, and the earth produced its crops.” James 5:!7-18

The rains of truth were sparse for the three and a half ‘days’ or 1260 years from 539AD to 1799AD, the height of Papal domination. We are now in the three and a half days of rain, 1799AD to 3059AD. Satan is being bound in fits and starts. “He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years.” Revelation 20:2

The binding of Satan is not a step function. He will be fully bound after Yom Kippur in the middle of the thousand years. This is when “But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its rays. And you will go out and frolic like well-fed calves.” Malachi 4:2
