THE REAL ANTICHRISTS: Revealing the Solomons Among Us

        No spiritual entity on the face of the Earth wastes money and resources like fake churches. And most churches are fake churches. They are staffed by fake people doing fake things. Forrest Gump said his momma told him, “Stupid is as stupid does,” and there you have it.

         The smartest, wisest man who ever lived is said by most pastors and their flocks to be King Solomon. And Solomon was a complete moron and a vile, immoral idiot. He had a moment of wisdom but later squandered it all and joined the devil. But all the church leaders and people still think he was the smartest and wisest.

         Have they never heard of the Lord Jesus? The one they supposedly preach about and believe in?

         No. Solomon. He’s the guy. And they love His big, giant, ornate, over-the-top temple, the very temple God told David to never build. But somehow, some way, it was okay for Solomon to build it.

         No. It wasn’t. Solomon defied God by building it. Solomon was the first antichrist.

         “David found favor in God’s sight, and asked that he might find a dwelling place for the God of Jacob. But it was Solomon who built a house for Him.

         “However, the Most High does not dwell in houses made by human hands; as the prophet says: ‘HEAVEN IS MY THRONE, AND EARTH IS THE FOOTSTOOL OF MY FEET; WHAT KIND OF HOUSE WILL YOU BUILD FOR ME?’ says the Lord, ‘OR WHAT PLACE IS THERE FOR MY REPOSE? WAS IT NOT MY HAND WHICH MADE ALL THESE THINGS?’

         “You men who are stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart and ears are always resisting the Holy Spirit; you are doing just as your fathers did…” [Acts 7:46-51] [1]

         Despite Stephen’s clear pronouncements right before his death, right before the Solomon worshippers killed him, Solomon remains the perfect model for most clergyites. It gives them one more excuse to also build big, giant, ornate, over-the-top “temples.” It gives them the impetus to defy God as well.


         One MUST notice that whenever these so-called Christians build as Solomon built, they also end up sinning as Solomon sinned. They open up the door to gross moral perversion and build that also. Must we be reminded of all the scandalous moral failures of so many unaccountable “pastors,” television preachers, flaming “music ministers,” Catholic priests and higher ups (including many Popes), and every other “Christian” who insists on Solomon and not the Lord Jesus as their example?

         Once Solomon backslid and left the Lord, he was accountable to no one. He could do whatever he wanted to do and did. He had supreme power. The people disobeyed God and demanded a king and the king they ended up with made their lives miserable, and they were powerless to stop him. There were no checks on his life or behavior. This is ALWAYS a recipe for disaster. Many of these disasters in history have been successfully covered up. The ones that leak out give us both a clue and a warning, but the Solomons and their followers never pay attention.

         Those who follow the example of Solomon, instead of circumcising their hearts and crucifying their flesh as the Lord Jesus taught, coddle their flesh and engage in great flesh indulgence of all and every kind. It also allows them to establish themselves as little antichrists, just like their hero Solomon.

         If one would only do a mere modicum of research one would quickly note that the Lord Jesus and Solomon were polar opposites. One would also note that clergyites are also the polar opposite of the Lord, just as were the Pharisees. The more they become like their hero Solomon, the more they justify their excess, their unchecked authority, and their arrogance. They reach a point where no prophet can get to them and to hell they go.

         We currently have popular “ministers” who many Christians and even other ministers know are adulterers and have engaged in gross immorality, but because they honor Solomon and bring in huge amounts of cash they get a pass. That’s why most “Christian” television was doomed from the start. Because it must suck up millions and millions and even billions of dollars to function and grow, the best money men are always most welcome.

         That’s why such enterprises reach a point where no one exists who can stand up against the temptation that huge amounts of money bring, though some insist they can and have, but don’t. They’re in denial. The people running these enterprises always end up siphoning more and more off for themselves AND ALL THEIR FOLLOWERS LOOK THE OTHER WAY AND JUSTIFY IT ALL.

         Forrest Gump is Albert Einstein compared to such people.

         This Solomon mentality is most defined in our times by ultra-arrogant pompous swelled-heads who have no problem taking advantage of regular well-intentioned people who don’t have much and struggle financially every day to give, give, give! They see themselves as most worthy. The best at their craft actually DEMAND money and even go so far as to say God will get you if you don’t bless them.


         Their enterprises grow by leaps and bounds.

         The Lord Jesus is out there in the parking lot somewhere because He either refuses to partake of their hogwash but cares about all the deceived people inside or because they would never let Him in anyway simply because there is no room for Him in the pulpit. Sound familiar? “If only we had a real leader…” they say. “If only God would come and help us…” they say. Sorry folks. He would certainly like to help but there is no room. His ministry is shoved aside by Mr. Fatboy preacher/priest/reverend who wants all the glory, authority, and control, (and money).

         Quick question: On all those signs outside church buildings, whose name reigns? The very fact that it says “XYZ Church, Pastor John Doe” tells you everything you need to know.

         Wouldn’t it be refreshing if such church signs made otherwise honest claims such as, “The LORD JESUS is Shepherd here,” and the people actually backed it up?

         But no. That’s just plain silly. WE CAN’T HAVE THE FOUNDER OF CHRISTIANITY AS OUR ABSOLUTE AUTHORITY, CAN WE? Perish the thought! Now, everybody back to sleep.


         At the final judgment, it won’t just be Lucy Ricardo whose gonna have a lot of ‘splainin’ to do. According to the Word of God we will all have to account for our actions. And while some sins are certainly worse than others, is it not obvious that the worst sin of all is idolatry? The first three commandments of the ten are anti-idolatry commandments but they never stopped ancient Israel from becoming the most idolatrous nation on earth. And all that idolatry culminated with King Solomon, the worst idolater of all time.

         And that says a lot, when one considers all those ancient nations (and current ones) who love making statues and setting them up everywhere. Let’s see, there’s the Egyptians, the Greeks, the Romans, the Catholics…

         Oh, and Washington DC. Statues everywhere.

         But mere statues are really not the biggest problem. They are simply relatively minor evidence of another problem. The biggest problem is all those living statues, idols every one, who breathe air and talk (endlessly), and demand control and rip you off.


         Exactly like the antichrist.

         The Lord Jesus knew all about idolatry and how easy most people fall into temptation regarding it, and how much people want to worship other human beings. Most people are conditioned to believe they are mere nobodies and as a result are also conditioned to worship humans better and greater than themselves. The Lord knew all this and it is in part why He went out of His way every day to stay humble and keep a low profile. He did not want people perceiving Him as a mere human to worship, so He purposefully cut out all those things that the elite always use to prop themselves up. He never dressed up as a Pope or a clergyite or a TV preacher or a politician, but took on the persona of a low income working man, humble to the core, meek and mild (but carried a giant stick to whip the devil with and a powerful voice to put the Pharisees in their place).

         If you are still confused about any of this, study the Lord’s life and manner. Study the life of John the Immerser. Study the life and manner of the early apostles and disciples.

         Then compare them to Solomon, the man who most Christians and Jews have been taught to believe was the greatest, and that his reign brought on the greatest glory of Israel.


         Have they never heard of the Lord Jesus? It still amazes me how so many millions of Christians and Christian leaders never give the Lord Jesus the respect, honor, and authority He deserves. Nobody disses the Lord like these people. It is the legacy of Unreal Christianity.

         Solomon actually brought Israel to its knees through his exorbitant excess and idolatry. He taxed Israel to no end. He destroyed the nation. His legacy was the splitting of the nation in two. It never recovered. A thousand years later in 70AD the little that was left of it ceased to be forever, just as the Lord Jesus prophesied 40 years before.


         Our current leaders are looking more like King Solomon every day. We are living in the early part of the Solomon era. It will culminate with the antichrist. Our leaders will look and act more and more like Solomon as the few years we have left go by. These people are already guilty of gross excess and arrogance completely off the scale. Like Solomon, they perceive themselves to be bullet proof and even beyond God’s reach. If you think it’s bad now, and it is (it’s very bad), wait until you see what comes next.

         Here’s a clue: The Roman emperors demanded everyone worship them as God…

         Uh Oh.

  1. The Kingdom of Heaven is internal, spiritual. False Christianity is external, spiritually dead; Christian Pharisees love external things: big buildings, multiple college degrees, head knowledge of the Gospel, worldliness. False Christianity is Spiritual Babylon.

    “BABYLON is the spiritual fabric of iniquity; the mystical great city of the great king of darkness; built in imitation of Zion, painted just like Zion, that it might be taken for Zion, and be worshipped there, instead of the true, eternal, ever living God, and King of Zion.”

    “And here, in this there is a great difference between the vessels of Zion, and the vessels of Babylon. The vessels of Zion, they are weak, earthen, foolish, contemptible to the eye of man’s wisdom, (which cannot look for any great matter of excellency there); but the treasure, the liquor of life in them, is precious. The vessels of Babylon make a great show, appear very holy, very heavenly, very zealous for God and Christ, and for the setting up of his church and ordinances all over the world. Thus they appear outside; but they are sepulchers; there is rottenness within. Under all this there lodges an unclean, an unsanctified heart; a heart unsubdued to the spirit and power of the gospel, while it makes such a great show of subjection and obedience to the letter.”

    “But their souls never knew the fire in Zion, and the furnace in Jerusalem; by which the very inwards of their spirits must be cleansed, before the pure eye of life is opened which can see Zion.”

    “And it is a spiritual city, a mystical city, a city built by the working of the mystery of iniquity, 2 Thes 2:7. whereupon she is called mystery. Rev 17:5. It is not a city of plain wickedness, but a city of sin that is hidden; of sin keeping its life under a covering, under a form of godliness; of sin reigning in the heart under zeal, under devotion, under praying, believing, worshipping, hoping, waiting, etc. Where sin lies hidden within under these, there is Babylon; there is the mystery of witchcraft; there is the painted throne of Satan; there is spiritual Egypt and Sodom, where the Lord of life is daily crucified. This is the city, the mystical city, the spiritual city. Rev. 11:8.”

    –Isaac Penington

    “The Decline of the Oral Roberts Dynasty”


    • Thanks Tim. I appreciate it.

      Since Isaac Penington’s writings are roughly 350 years old and are couched in the terminology of that time, I would like to draw a possibly clearer picture between these two opposing kingdoms.

      The devil has his kingdom, which according to the Gospels includes the entire planet and all the kingdoms upon it throughout time, except one. The one exception is, of course, the kingdom of the Lord Jesus. Hence, to simplify, there are two kings and two kingdoms. There is the devil’s kingdom, geographical, material, and invisible (spiritual) of which he is the king and is referred to by Paul as “the god of this world,” and is inhabited by every person who has chosen the devil as his or her king, meaning they have never been born again and chosen the Lord Jesus as their king.

      And there is the kingdom of the Lord Jesus, inhabited by everyone who has been born again and has chosen Him and honors Him as King.

      There is no other kingdom. There is no middle ground. Anything else other than these two kingdoms is mere myth.

      Adam and Eve were originally in the Lord’s kingdom. Then they sinned and joined the devil’s kingdom. Then 130 years later they repented and joined up with the Lord again. Adam lived 130 years in sin and rebellion. Then he repented and spent 800 years with the Lord. 13 is the number of rebellion. 8 is the number of resurrection and regeneration. At the 130 year mark when Adam and Eve repented, Seth was born to them and he served as a replacement for Abel who was killed by Cain. Seth reestablished the Messianic generational line which eventually led to the Sacrifice Lamb, the Savior of the world.

      Penington’s use of the term “Zion” is vague and mysterious, and I am not sure even he understood what he was saying. Better to call it the kingdom of the Lord Jesus, if indeed that is what he was referring to, or the community of the Lord Jesus. This is an invisible spiritual kingdom on this planet composed of Him and every real Christian.

      Within the devil’s one kingdom is Babylon, composed in part by false “Christian” religions and their supporters, which I refer to as Unreal Christianity. Just as there is an anti-Messiah or an antichrist, and an antichrist spirit, there is an anti-Christianity composed of spiritual rebels in the guise of Christians.

      The Lord said we would know who the real Christians are by the love they have for each other, and they are united by this love—the love of the Lord—and also by the Holy Spirit of the Lord. They love the Lord with everything they have and obey the Golden Rule.

      Unreal Christians only possess a fake love if any at all. They are not united by the Lord’s love nor do they have His Spirit. They do not honor the Golden Rule. They are servants of mammon.

  2. Outstanding post and comments, Bro Dawson. It seems to me, that the Lord Jesus has really been pressing this issue of exposing fake churches more strongly than ever recently and the line has been drawn in the proverbial sand to either get out or perish.

    It couldn’t be more clear than the way you presented it here. I need to start posting some of these on the various Topix forums as sometimes here on WordPress it seems like we are preaching to the choir.

    Also, thanks for the prayers, as the battle here this last month on several fronts has been downright vicious, with very little respite. I know it can’t possibly be true, some sometimes I feel like one woman against an enemy armed to the teeth with deadly weapons.

    God bless and strengthen you.


    • Thank you, Scarlett. Greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world. [1John 4:4]

      I agree with you that the message to get out is certainly increasing and getting louder, though the message is not new:

      Depart, depart, go out from there, Touch nothing unclean; Go out of the midst of her, purify yourselves, You who carry the vessels of the LORD. [Isaiah 52:11]

      “Therefore, COME OUT FROM THEIR MIDST AND BE SEPARATE,” says the Lord. “AND DO NOT TOUCH WHAT IS UNCLEAN; And I will welcome you.” [2Corinthians 6:17]

      And he cried out with a mighty voice, saying, “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She has become a dwelling place of demons and a prison of every unclean spirit, and a prison of every unclean and hateful bird. For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the passion of her immorality, and the kings of the earth have committed acts of immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich by the wealth of her sensuality.”

      I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive of her plagues; for her sins have piled up as high as heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.”[Revelation 18:2-5]

      Great blessings to you.


  3. Well isn’t that interesting to call Solomon an anti-christ. 🙂 I haven’t quite crossed that line before. But I do and have believed for a long time that the building of the temple was not God’s will. Really, it wasn’t God’s will for Israel to have a king other than Him anyway. But the people wanted to be like the other nations didn’t they.

    But what was God’s reaction to the temple?

    11 Then the word of the Lord came to Solomon, saying: 12 “Concerning this temple which you are building, if you walk in My statutes, execute My judgments, keep all My commandments, and walk in them, then I will perform My word with you, which I spoke to your father David. 13 And I will dwell among the children of Israel, and will not forsake My people Israel.” (IKings 6:11-13)

    I guess He really didn’t say anything about the temple did He? Other than what He said in Isaiah 66.

    • Thank you, Al, for the comment. (Please see my answer to Linda.)

      The Word of God makes powerful statements on many occasions, not necessarily through spelling it out academically, but by showcasing an event and/or the reaction to it. The death of Stephen was one such event.

      Stephen gave his life through revealing this truth.

      There are scriptures that apparently support Solomon’s building of the temple, but then there are also those that don’t. Most people choose one or the other depending on the influence upon them and the teaching they submit to and accept, and most of these have always supported the pro-Solomon perspective.

      To find the actual truth, however, one must dovetail the two perspectives together.

      Stephen did that very thing. His very violent death was an event that God allowed in part to reveal the truth of Solomon’s temple and Solomon’s motivation for building it. Stephen’s death MUST grab our attention and we MUST then ask:

      “What is God trying to tell us?”

      “Why did those people go completely insane so quickly and react so violently to Stephen’s message?”

      “Just what nerve, exactly, did Stephen hit?”

  4. Hmmm. Thought-provoking. Never thought of Solomon as anti-Christ; just as a wise man who turned stupid.


    • Thanks Linda.

      Scripture reveals this to be true. I go into it in detail in my book.

      The whole point of the devil appropriating an antichrist is to deceive people that such a person IS Christ, especially “Christians.” The antichrist spirit has always been in the world, and other antichrists have obviously arisen in the past, many of them even prior to the Lord. ANY person who claims to take on the appearance of the Lord or be a substitute for Him, or be “an anointed one” just like Him and to whom people worship as such though they deny it, is an antichrist because he or she is a fake Christ, or Messiah.

      The greatest deceiving and bewitching thing about the final antichrist prophesied in scripture will be that he will not deceive the world so much, since the world is easily deceived and the devil is king of the world, but that he will deceive “Christians.” This has already been happening in certain denominations for centuries, one in particular, and is why a believer must never honor a human being more than the Lord Jesus or even oneself. If one does, one takes his or her eyes off the Lord Jesus and falls under deception.

      These “Christian” Solomons know that masses of so-called Christians are easily deceived and brainwashed, and they do it every day. It’s how they build their little kingdoms. It’s how they get their money. These “Christian” ministers and higher ups are effectively little antichrists because they deceive and manipulate people into believing they are for real for their own personal gain.

      Blind leaders of the blind both fall into a ditch. Or, these “Christian” ministers and the great flocks who follow them will both end up in hell.


      • Jeremiah 23 addresses “shepherds” who have not taken care of their flocks in pretty specific terms. God does not have to show mercy where He does not choose to do so. You are correct. Many so-called Christian leaders have turned out to be anti-Christ without actually being The Anti-Christ. Is that person alive today? God knows. Thank God, I do not have to know the answer to that question. I do, however, have a responsibility to discern the truth from the lie, and the only way I can do that is if I am immersed in the Word.


        • You are exactly correct, Linda. Thanks.

          Rob Barkman wrote an excellent post on that subject recently entitled:

          Personal Experience Or God’s Word, Which Is Our Standard?

          You can find it here.

          The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever. [Isaiah 40:8]
