I John 2:18 Dear children, the last hour is here. You have heard that the Antichrist is coming, and already many such Antichrists have appeared. From this we know that the last hour has come.
There is a coming a ruler who will rule most of the world and in particularly the middle East. He will be cunning and have the appearance of peace. He will have the ability to manipulate thousands of people and have the countenance of a Greek god. His right hand man will demonstrate power and do miracles, so says the bible.( Revelation 13:1-18)
The best way to describe this coming ruler is by looking at a person who was a type of Antichrist in our history. Adolf Hitler was for sure operating under the Antichrist spirit. He had a false prophet by his side as well. His name was Joseph Goebbels , and he was believed to be the true author of " Mein Kampf" ( My Struggle). Interesting to note that Joseph Goebbels was labeled the propaganda minister. Both men were equally disturbed and self-centered. They both believed that Nazi Germany should conquer and control the world. They started with Europe and were going to branch out hopefully to other nations. The coming ruler will have the same passion and drive, but I believe he will do it through more deception than did Adolf Hitler. Once the people of the world find out it is a ruse; it would be too late.
I believe the coming ruler or Antichrist will have similar characteristics as Adolf Hitler. I have listed a few below.
Characteristics of Adolf Hitler and the coming Ruler:
The coming ruler will have many of these characteristics as well. As Adolf Hitler came into power when the world was hit by a major circumstance. ( the Great Depression.) The coming Ruler will come into power as the world is hit with a similar issue. Who knows what that issue will be? Maybe during famine or after a major world-wide earthquake. It could be through another Great Depression. Nonetheless, the enemy is gearing up to release his servant to the world and the world will fall for it. The Antichrist is a biblical character which can not be ignored. His presence in the bible is as real as Jesus himself , and we cannot afford to ignore his purpose or place in biblical prophecy. If we do, we could very well get caught up in the lie which will be broadcasted from this evil foe. Therefore, be on the look out. Have your heart ready. Keep following the Lord with passion and truth and stay informed with today's current events. Any moment now the coming Ruler could reveal his ugly head.
