The World of Antichrist
APRIL 3, 2020/PREACHERSPOINT
The last two weeks I've written about the signs of Christ's return going on around the world. Worldwide pestilence, earthquakes in divers place, wars and rumors wars, massive locust swarms in Africa, and the list continues.
Through various forms of correspondence, I have received the following questions, "Is this the end of the world?" "Is Christ coming back soon?" "Are we in the Tribulation Period?" "Will we see Armageddon in a few months?"
This column will try, on the one hand, to calm people down somewhat; and, on the other hand, give the warning people need to hear.
Let us do the quick answers first.
"Is this the end of the world?" Until the rapture happens, we are at least 1,007 years from the end of this earth.
"Are we in the Tribulation Period?" - No. The Tribulation period begins when the Antichrist makes a seven-year covenant "with many" concerning Israel and the city of Jerusalem (Daniel 9:27). This event has yet to happen.
The big battle everyone thinks about is Armageddon. Well, two Biblical battles must take place before Armageddon (Psalm 83, Ezekiel 38-39). Also, Armageddon comes at the end of the seven-year tribulation period that has not yet started (see above).
As far as Christ return - Is it close? The Second Coming is the last event of the Tribulation Period, so, at this point, we have at least seven years before Christ sets foot on this earth again. However, the rapture (Christ appearing in the air and removing believers) could happen at any moment.
At this point, let us fill in some details about the future as Biblical prophecy explains it to us.
There will still be national borders at the time of the Antichrist. The Bible talks of other "kings" on earth with him. He will be running the show and calling the shots as the leaders of the world, will eventually be wrapped a

Yep, I think that Matthew 24:35 is the forunner to 1 Peter 1:25 which states "the word of the Lord endures forever. " Every so often Christias need to be reminded of this fact especially in light of many who 'd tell than that to observe the Lord 's teaching is akin to being Amish or living in the past. 2 Timothy 3 verse 16 says about as much regarding the soundness and enduring qualities of the Lord 's word.

And there it is...consummate, indomitable, omnipotent....spoken by The Boss. People had better understand. The Almighty plays no games.

This scripture is plainly saying, no infinite end to who God is and what he is all about, God of all Gods and Lord of all Lords.
