The antichrist will not come from Rome, the false prophet will, the seven hills mentioned in Revelation 17:9 point to this truth.
Many of those who will be saved by the grace of God during the Tribulation period will not be killed because they will not take the mark of the beast, but for their efforts to expose the false prophet as who he really is, a messenger of Satan.
Romanism, what is generally known as the Roman Catholic church teaches that the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross was not sufficient for the salvation of the souls of men, that some work by the applicant must be performed, and continuously performed, thus creating a works-based religious cult that denies not only Ephesians 2:8-9, but many other Scriptures as well. In Romanism, God is not Sovereign, man is not permitted to go boldly to the throne of grace, Jesus Christ is not our mediator to the Father. Rules, regulations and traditions must be followed, and even then, there is no hope of the assurance of salvation.
They have written their own bible, bastardizing the Word of God to meet their desired goals, to gain worldly profit, and keep the souls of men in bondage. And this cult has obtained great power, for they follow their father, the devil.
In this end of the days of grace the world’s cults have joined forces. At last count over 500 religious organizations count Romanism as their master and have found that taste of power to be pleasing to them. Those who claim a religion as the means to the salvation of their souls will find themselves in a place they were not expecting when they open their eyes after their last breath on this planet, and that of course has always been the plan, to keep people’s eyes off the truths of the Word of God.
Brute beasts are easily led around.
False religions have always been kept in power by lies and bondage to those lies, the truth has always been sought out and when possible destroyed, such is how it has always been, and is becoming again today.
If you are attempting to reach out to others for the glory of God on social websites, you will find many of your posts deleted, truth, whether it be Scriptural truths or verifiable facts of almost any incident, they are being removed from the viewing public, and this will grow exponentially as the day arrives. “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” (John 8:44)
Many who sit in what are still called Evangelical churches have become silent, they fear personal retribution, they speak on how all are to be submissive to those in authority over them in this world of Satan, and spend much time either hiding, in denial, or hoping for the rapture so they can escape, when the Word of God commands us to stand.
It matters very little to me who the antichrist is, who or where the false prophet will come from, or even when the rapture will occur, I cannot count a few years of life on this planet with eternity in the presence of the Lord, but I cannot be silent, Psalm 94:16 stands as too much of a truth for me. “Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?”
The Lord is seeking for men and women who do not love their lives, who are willing to be crucified with Him, who will stand for righteousness, and many of you reading this poorly written letter know this. You have a day of accounting approaching, and I will ask you to consider Matthew 7:22, “Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?”
No excuses will be heard, no mercy will be offered to those who knew the truth and did not act upon it, you either stand for Jesus Christ, or you do not, there is no third option.
