Iranian 'aid' ships head for Gaza...; Waiting for Anti-Christ: The Maitreyea Cometh

Recently, I have been hearing more and more chatter as to who the future Antichrist might be.  Most have been pointing at US President Barack Obama, some at England's Prince Charles, and few at a spiritual leader called the Maitreyea.  Even the Pope has come up as a candidate.  

I'm not going to discount any of these individuals.  Frankly, it could be anyone with strong military and political power.  I don't' believe the Bible supports that it will be a religious figure (the false prophet will fulfill that duty) or a make believe king.  This man will have real, terrifying world power.  This is what the Bible has to say about this future world leader:  

Daniel 9:25-27 says, " And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: And the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.  And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate."

Daniel 7:23-:24 says this future world leader will possess a ten kingdom empire with the might of a major military power:

"Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.  And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings."

Here again in Revelation 13, describes a world leader that will be ferocious and will conquer the known world:

 "And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? (V. 4)

"And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name." (v. 16 & 17)

Daniel 8:23-25 says that the future Antichrist will be a "king of fierce countenance" who "through peace shall destroy many" and shall "stand up against the Prince of princes [Jesus]":

"And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.  And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.  And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand."

This description of the Antichrist rules out all religious figures. In my estimation, it could only be a major world figure who has control over a great army (NATO or EU for example), has vast military technology, and possesses advanced nuclear weapons.  Certainly, one could say, with Satan in control, the Antichrist could defeat any nuclear power, whether he had a great military or advanced nuclear weapon technology. That's true, but it doesn't match the series of events that are outlined in the afore mentioned verses. According to the Bible, he will come on the scene with the goal of world peace. In the name of peace, he will conquer many. When peace fails to be established through his peaceful efforts, war breaks out and one-quarter of the world's population will perish (Revelation 6). In the process of this great world war, he will have to defeat three nations within his own kingdom. One other thing, Daniel 8:25 states, "And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand". According to this scripture, he will have the power to alter the global financial markets. Today, markets rise and fall based on mere rumors by world leaders. It will be by his policies that the world economy will prosper. If a man of this stature were to come forth in this day and time, and heal our global economy, he would rise to near godlike status. Truthfully, with all scriptures considered, I don't see how the future Antichrist could come out of any other arena but a military/government arena. 

In today's headlines, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin is poised to give into US pressure to loosen up on the Gaza blockade. I won't say that I saw this coming, but it certainly was a possibility. I still believe that Ezekiel 38:11 supports that peace will come before a major war breaks out in the region. I still look for the two state solution to come into effect in the not so distant future. With the international community taking on more responsibility in the Middle East, I see foreign troops moving into the West Bank to maintain peace as the new Palestinian state is created. 

From the flotilla crisis, it looks like international monitors will eventually be placed at predefined ports for unloading humanitarian aid bound for Gaza. Even Iran has settled down their rhetoric of sending a flotilla ship manned by the Revolutionary Guard and escorted by military vessels.

In what I believe is a message to Israelis by Netanyahu that Israel is about to be forced into complying with the international community (including allies), he warned that Israel would experience dark days ahead. 

"Dark forces from the Middle Ages are raging against us. I have received calls from concerned officials in the Balkans and Eastern Europe who are very worried about these developments."

Earlier, at the cabinet meeting, Netanyahu told ministers to expect "surprises", even from Israel's allies.

"The flotilla to Gaza was not a one-time thing. We find ourselves in the midst of a difficult and continuous battle against the State of Israel. The flood of hate is being led by Israel's enemies all over the world," Netanyahu added.

"They are trying to pinch us with the metal pinchers of missiles and terror, and revoke Israel's right to defend itself as well as the rights of IDF soldiers to protect their own lives ("

The end times continues to be unpredictable. Just when you think the world is about to explode, it somehow reaches a level of restraint...but one day, that will all change!  It will be like any other ordinary day.  "In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed (I Corinthians 15:52)."  

Are you ready to meet the Lord?  If not, your time is running out!
