End Time thoughts

Every now and then I like to speculate about the coming tide or changes within the world. I came across an article a few weeks ago and thought it was warranted to mention. I am not an End-Time prophet or a person who is stuck in the same old teachings in regards to the End-times. Nor am I a gloom and doom type of individual;however, I know the word of God specifically talks about the world changing before the return of Jesus. Out of the world's chaos will come a fake savior known as the anti-Christ.

Some teach that the Anti-Christ will come from some place in Europe and the old Roman empire. They believe he will come out of some type of occult or corrupt religion.I believe the Anti-Christ will come from within the Christian church or at least a belief system that calls its self Christian.

The article is found at the following link. Possible new EU leader

The article discusses the first woman German Chancellor and her nomination for president over the EU. Angela Merkel has been German's president, if you will, since 2005. She belongs to the Christian Democrat Union Party. The CDU is a political party with Christian roots which are wrapped up in Catholic and protestant belief systems. Chancellor Merkel is endorsing Jean-Claude Juncker who was the ex-prime minister in Belgium. I am not saying anyone of these people are the Antichrist. I am just making a point. What if the Antichrist comes out of the Christian church? Could this cause the great falling away that Jesus talked about? Many Christians will be deceived in the last days. I just wonder if what we are seeing in the news is the pre-work to the great exodus from the Christian faith?

Scripture focus:

Revelation 13:1-18 - And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.   (Read More...)

2 John 1:7 - For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils,
