18 Mar The Search for the Antichrist
Yet another book written by Joel Richardson is now being promoted via the World Net Daily website. In case you did not know, Joel wrote a book entitled, The Islamic Antichrist. Frankly he sold thousands of copies to people who have become enamored with discovering who the antichrist is, where he will come from and what he will do. In my latest book, It Could Happen Tomorrow, I also wrote a chapter regarding this man of sin. However, in my book I communicate the fact that Christians in the present will not know who the antichrist will be because the clear teaching of scripture (2 Thessalonians 2) is that he cannot come to power until after the saved have been caught up to be with Christ.
It is also worth noting that God’s people should stop wasting time trying to figure out who this person will be and get busy sharing the Good News that Jesus Saves! The information concerning the coming “man of sin”, who will rule over the world is in the Word of God for those who will be left behind. It is God’s intention that those who come to saving faith in Christ during the time of tribulation will identify this man of sin as an impostor. Although he will present himself as the savior of the world, he is not the true Christ.
I urge all followers of Jesus Christ to get serious about sharing Christ with their family and friends as the true Christ is coming very soon! Let’s stop spending first rate energy on a second rate cause. Just my thoughts!
