Pray Against Antichrist

Charles Spurgeon:

Olynthus mill from Yavne-Yam (2)“It is the duty of every Christian to pray against Antichrist, and as to what Antichrist is no sane man ought to raise a question. If it is not the Popery in the Church of Rome and in the Church of England, there is nothing in the world that can be called by that name. If there were to be issued a hue and cry for Antichrist, we should certainly take up those two churches on suspicion, and they certainly would not be let loose again, for they so exactly answer the description. Popery anywhere, whether it be Anglican or Romish, is contrary to Christ’s Gospel, and is the Antichrist, and we ought to pray against it. It should be the daily prayer of every Believer that Antichrist might be hurled like a millstone into the flood and sink to rise no more. If we can pray against error for Christ because it wounds Christ, because it robs Christ of His Glory, because it puts sacramental efficacy in the place of His Atonement, and lifts a piece of bread into the place of the Savior, and a few drops of water into the place of the Holy Spirit, and puts a mere fallible man like ourselves up as the Vicar of Christ on earth; if we pray against it, because it is against Him, we shall love the persons though we hate their errors; we shall love their souls though we loathe and detest their dogmas, and so the breath of our prayers will be sweetened, because we turn our faces towards Christ when we pray. We are to pray for Him.”

– PRAY FOR JESUS, NO. 717, DELIVERED ON SUNDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 21, 1866, BY C. H. SPURGEON, AT THE METROPOLITAN TABERNACLE, NEWINGTON.

We Refuse The Usurped Authority

The 1638 Scottish National Covenant:

Papal_Beast“…we detest and refuse the usurped authority of that Roman Antichrist upon the scriptures of God, upon the kirk, the civil magistrate, and consciences of men; all his tyrannous laws made upon indifferent things against our Christian liberty; his erroneous doctrine against the sufficiency of the written word, the perfection of the law, the office of Christ, and his blessed evangel; his corrupted doctrine concerning original sin, our natural inability and rebellion to God’s law, our justification by faith only, our imperfect sanctification and obedience to the law;…

The Antichrist is Hidden in Plain Sight

Via End Times Deceptions:

ratzin51The Antichrist Is Hidden In Plain Sight

This end times deception study will reveal how the Antichrist beast has hidden its presence from today’s Christians.

For 1300 years, Christ’s Church knew exactly who the Antichrist is.

Today, Christians speculate about Obama, Prince Charles, etc..

How has the church become so blind during the last 200 years?

In 2 Thessalonians 2, Paul told the church that the ‘Son of Perdition’ would be revealed after the Roman Empire was taken out of the way, so the church witnessed the Antichrist rising into power and knew who it was in 500 A.D.

During the Thyatira church era, which occurred from 538-1514 A.D., people groups called the Waldenses, Albigenses, Vaudois, Bohemian Brethren, and Wycliffites, witnessed against the Antichrist beast, and they were killed for their testimony.

During the Sardis church era, which occurred from 1514-1798 A.D., the Protestant Reformers and great theologians such as John Calvin, Martin Luther, Sir Isaac Newton, John Bunyan,  John Foxe, John Wesley, Matthew Henry, Adam Clarke, and many others, testified about who was the Antichrist beast of Revelation, the Little Horn of Daniel, Mystery Babylon, and the Son of Perdition.

During the Philadelphia church era, which occurred from 1798-1900 A.D., people like Charles Finney, Charles Spurgeon, Adam Clarke, Phillip Mauro, and many others,  identified the Antichrist.

To understand how Jesus prophetic words to the seven church eras have been fulfilled. Read The Seven Churches of Revelation

But today, Christians in the Laodecian church era don’t have a clue.

Turretin on the Papal Antichrist

Vatican Files via Triablogue:

After noting that it is the common opinion of Protestants that the Pope is the Antichrist, Turretin explains that Scripture reveals the place of the Antichrist (the temple), his time (from apostolic times onward), and his person (an apostate from the faith, a performer of spurious miracles, one who opposes Christ, a self-exalting figure, a man of sin, an idolater). Turretin goes as far as analyzing the name and number of the Beast of Revelation 13:17-18. Gathering all these elements together, he does not find these marks among the Jews or Turks (Muslims), nor among the Greek Orthodox. In his view, they only fit the chief authority of the Roman Church.

Turretin is convinced that the Antichrist is not a single person but must refer to an office or succession of persons in office that began operating in apostolic times. To the Catholic objection that Popes have never denied Christ, Turretin replies that the Antichrist will not openly deny Christ as a professed enemy but as a professed friend of Christ who praises Him with their words, yet fights Him with his actions. He sees this attitude in Popes who arrogate to themselves the three offices of Christ (Priest, Prophet and King), but bury the Gospel under their own traditions and undermine His work of redemption by their masses, purgatory, indulgences, and false worship.

From an eyewitness account of a recent attendee at the 2015 Parliament of he World’s Religions:

“They are not afraid to say that “an orthodox Bible believing Christian does not fit in our world nor will they be tolerated.” It was in our face.”

What Made the Reformation Unconquerable

606px-Foxe-martyrs-iconoclasm-1563Wikipedia on the Historicist understanding of Daniel 2 and 7:

Just as scholars note parallels between the prophetic chapters, so too have historicists since the Protestant Reformation. “The Reformation … was really born of a twofold discovery–first, the rediscovery of Christ and His salvation; and second, the discovery of the identity of Antichrist and his subversions.”[11] “The reformers were unanimous in its acceptance. And it was this interpretation of prophecy that lent emphasis to their reformatory action. It led them to protest against Rome with extraordinary strength and undaunted courage. … This was the rallying point and the battle cry that made the Reformation unconquerable.”[12]

The Antichrist Sun and the Antichrist Moon

(aka the two horns of Antichrist)

Michael Daniels, The First Rays of Millennial Morning Light
An Overview of Historicism Classical Post Millennialism
A Historic Covenanter view of Eschatology:

Azoth-Fouth woodcut“The Historicist sees that the ecclesiastical Antichrist (secularism is the state Antichrist) has two horn, one that grows out of the other. The Two horns are represented as the Papacy and Islam- the mystery religion of Babylon. The two heads are two sides of the same coin that stem from ancient Babylon. The Papacy which is the Babylonian Sun worship and is represented by the sun and Islam which is the Babylonian Moon worship and is represented by the crescent moon. Both have their roots in ancient Babylon and both have been paradisaical and taking in different portions of authentic Christianity and twisted them to their evil scheme.”

Church Fathers Anticipated Antichrist After the Fall of Rome

Out of His Mouth:

Invasions of the Roman Empire 1“The testimony of all of the Fathers is not unanimous here, but there exists at least one clear and consistent line of interpretation among them that saw Daniel 7 as a continuum of historical events with no unexplained gaps. It had not been fulfilled in the recent past under the Greek empire (as some modern commentators have said), and it was not to be fulfilled  several thousand years into the future (as others have taught). Simply put, there had been three empires before, the fourth was in its in decline, and the ten-way division was upon us, as Daniel had prophesied. The rise of Antichrist simply could not be far away.”
