THE RISE OF THE ANTICHRISTERS
…the dumb ass speaking with man’s voice… [2Peter 2:16 KJV]
Who is the liar but the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son. [1John 2:22]
OUR PRESENT CHALLENGE
By now the lines have been drawn. Most have chosen their side. America is divided. It is breaking apart. There is no going back. Unless, that is, Christians in America, the only possible potential unifying and positive force remaining to restore the country, get their act together. But of course, that will never happen because such Christians, in a general sense, have denied the fullness of the Gospel and consequently have no chance against the level of evil coming forth. Therefore, it will take the “church within the church” to stem the tide toward destruction. This group comprises that small steadfast percentage of American Christians overall, those who take the Lord absolutely seriously, who truly understand what happened at Calvary and how it applies to them personally. Only these possess the 100% dedication to the Lord Jesus, displayed by their pure discipleship and absolute honor of His full curriculum. Only these can be the required positive force to counteract and overcome the negative forces of hatred, rebellion, and destruction. Their pure moral loving nature, anointed by the Lord’s powerful Spirit, stands as a bulwark against the flowing immoral degeneracy of the current evil agenda.
And for any who think I am being far too concerned about saving the country rather than living for the Kingdom I will remind you that without a country with a Constitution of laws to protect and defend the innocent and law-abiding and their God-given rights for the good of all one will be forever on the defensive against marauding evil authoritarians ever on the prowl for taking a spoil and destroying the good. There will be nothing to stop them. Once Constitutional Freedom of Religion, Speech, and the Press is cut away to nothing it will be total war on Christians and Christianity with no possible corrective.
Therefore, there is a Great Awakening. Seeing what was coming, I have been calling for the need of one for decades. I have been speaking, teaching, writing about, and hoping for its arrival openly for the last quarter century. I have mentioned it in my book Real Christianity. And since I received the spoken revelation of its arrival over twelve years ago and have been proclaiming its presence since the beginning of this public blog in May of 2011 long before the vast majority of Christians in America had a clue I can tell you it’s been a lonely fight. The only question at this point is whether enough REAL Christians get involved and work with the Lord Jesus to bring about the desired outcome.
What we have then is a variation of the Lord’s statement, “However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?” In our case, will enough Americans and American Christians become REAL Christians? That’s the real question. It is not that we do not have a Great Awakening. We do. People are certainly waking up. It is happening right now. It’s been gaining steam from initial beginnings at some point just prior to August of 2010. The question remains, will enough American Christians join it to make a difference?
THIS PRESENT DARKNESS
The two sides in this spiritual war are based pretty much exclusively on Pro-Christ or antichrist.
There are intelligent and knowledgeable people in this country who are predicting much more than just Civil War (as some call it, somewhat inanely, a cold impassive term with no guts or feeling that does no justice to the actual terror of that historical bloody betrayal). They are predicting actual geographical division. They are saying the country will be broken up into groups of states. One man in particular foresees another North-South divide with the South including most of the western states but not including the three west coastal states which will compose a third region. Where the North-South border will be is not clear but one can probably figure it out. One thing is certain, however: America as we knew it is projected as gone forever (or with the wind) and those who hide from this reality are only making things worse.
In reality, of course, for the few remaining who can still see reality and actually handle reality, the war began long ago. It was a war waged on everything good, strong, and wholesome about America. It was a secret attack by secret forces who had secretly invaded with most American Christians none the wiser because they were ill-prepared spiritually and never prepared for an attack by the devil himself using his chosen duplicitous instruments who act like him and deceive, lie, hate, kill, steal, and destroy like him.
Now, if this was 2000 years ago the Lord Jesus would certainly have prepared and equipped them. He would have told His people all about the wicked wiles of the evil one and the backstabbing antichristers and the great evil such creatures do. But unlike real ministers of the Gospel, the wimpy DA’s we call pastors and priests who took control of American Christianity long ago never had the spiritual backbone to teach the real truth of the Gospel, part of which is teaching about the great enemy among us who only wants to destroy us. No, most did not do that. They were much more concerned about the cultural aspects of Christianity and the religious aspects of Christianity and were too clueless to understand that there were never any such things in the beginning because God is the antithesis of an idiot and His Kingdom is something far different from their desired kingdoms. Yet, even with the Biblical knowledge they did have they didn’t honor it and created out of thin air such counterfeits anyway. Why? Well, maybe because it worked out well for them.
But it worked out very bad for the poor dumb Christians who followed them. They never learned about how great our enemy is. They were taught that all is always well and God is in control regardless of human effort and participation and everything will be alright and there is a reason for everything and I know I don’t have any control but I trust the Lord as I watch my life get frittered away by the evil ones who rip me off that we just can’t stop because, you know, well, because. If this does not describe a Christian DA then nothing does. And these poor misguided people were not that way by nature but were taught to be that way and affect that attitude by guess who? By the very ones in control who pontificate their nonsense all the day long whether we are talking in the last century or the one before that or even right now when one must put up with the never-ending nonsense of the same defeatist and stupid attitude in which they master dancing all around the actual truth that would set people free but never go there for fear of upsetting the very one behind the gates of hell they are supposed to be attacking. And they side with the Lord’s enemies.
It is why America has descended into this present pit without the spiritual wherewithal to muster any gumption at all toward a slimy wicked enemy who would go down hard if only enough Christians would attack him the way the Lord Jesus and His men did. Those were the great ones. They were tough. They proved their toughness by the rigors of discipleship they subjected themselves to unlike the Christian wimps of the present who have about as much spiritual testosterone as a eunuch. Rather than attack the enemy they ignore him and hope he’ll go away. They refuse the great powerful spiritual strength they should have and would have to overcome him and defeat him and mop up the parking lot with him because they refuse the infilling of the Lord’s Holy Spirit and the powerful anointing thereof because they refuse real repentance and refuse to not be in control. It is why they created their fake versions of Christianity and also why their people suffer all the live long day unable to overcome and never become the mighty warriors they were meant to be. One can never be spiritually victorious with such an unaware and powerless collection of unreal Christians.
We are no longer accepting things we cannot change. It’s now time to change the things we cannot accept.
YOU MUST FIGHT BACK
I remember reading a book by John Eldredge and an account he put forth regarding his young son’s big problem in first grade which robbed him of a great joyous attitude and replaced it with downcast cloudiness. What happened? Well, as it happens to most Christians who get blindsided by the devil but lack the ability and strength to fight back because no “minister” ever told them about spiritual war so they simply take it on the chin and lose the victory and go through life as spiritual losers knowing they can’t possibly ever win a fight against the big bad devil—What happened to the kid was that he was accosted one day at school by a bully. His innocence, trust, and good nature was shattered.
Now, most Christians these days would likely tell their young son there is nothing you can do in such a situation because the bully is bigger than you and you must be nice and not add to trouble so we probably need to tell the authorities… Hogwash. As I continued reading the book to see what Eldridge would do about the unfortunate event I was both surprised and somewhat euphoric when he sat his young son down, looked him in the eye, and said:
“Look at me.” He raised his tearful eyes slowly, reluctantly. There was shame written all over his face. “I want you to listen very closely to what I am about to say. The next time that bully pushes you down, here is what I want you to do—are you listening?” He nodded, his big wet eyes fixed on mine. “I want you to get up . . . and I want you to hit him . . . as hard as you possibly can.” A look of embarrassed delight came over his face. Then he smiled.
The kid was absolutely overjoyed. He had thought fighting back was somehow wrong even though he wanted to; he didn’t want to get in trouble. But all of the sudden he was beaming and his wonderful nature came back and the gloominess was gone. He looked forward to the next day when he would reclaim his place and position and restore his reputation and standing. And the moral of the story was that he never had a problem with that so called bully again and gained a great victory and felt great about himself.
For Christians in this day and age there is no way to gain the victory in this current battle without a committed, for the duration, spiritual fight. We must face the enemy eyeball to eyeball without backing down and without compromising. However, we must not engage until we’re properly equipped. It’s a spiritual war. The forces of evil are spiritually powerful. One must be spiritually powerful as well. The Lord never sends His children into open spiritual warfare without giving them the weapons and armaments they need. And what is His great weapon of choice you may ask? What makes one love everybody? What anoints our prayers with great power and might? What empowers our gifts, ministries, and witnessing?
IT’S HIS OWN HOLY SPIRIT. HIS OWN POWERFUL PRESENCE PRESENT IN YOU. THE ENEMY CANNOT STAND AGAINST IT. THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD WIPES HIM OUT. THE DEVIL IS DEATHLY AFRAID OF THE LORD JESUS. THE ANTICHRISTERS HAVE NO CHANCE AGAINST HIM REGARDLESS OF THEIR DEMONIC CONNECTIONS.
So, returning to the narrative, all those fake Christian ministers who were never Spirit-filled who taught their mostly willing congregants a false wimpy powerless gospel forced their congregants to be overcome by the greatest bully of them all. Rather than rear back and punch him squarely in the face they gave him the upper hand. They made a mockery of the powerful Gospel of the Lord Jesus. The majority of Christians in America have thus never been equipped for spiritual warfare, have never engaged the enemy, and apparently never want to and never will. This is especially true today. It is in part why the enemy has run roughshod over American Christianity and most American Christians. Their fear factor is far superior to their faith factor. In light of what the Lord can do and wants to do, their attitude is both defeating and disgusting.
It is why America has fallen.
DOES ANY OF THIS SOUND FAMILIAR?
But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves. Many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of the truth will be maligned; and in their greed they will exploit you with false words; their judgment from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.
For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to pits of darkness, reserved for judgment; and did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah, a preacher of righteousness, with seven others, when He brought a flood upon the world of the ungodly; and if He condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to destruction by reducing them to ashes, having made them an example to those who would live ungodly lives thereafter; and if He rescued righteous Lot, oppressed by the sensual conduct of unprincipled men (for by what he saw and heard that righteous man, while living among them, felt his righteous soul tormented day after day by their lawless deeds), then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from temptation, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment for the day of judgment, and especially those who indulge the flesh in its corrupt desires and despise authority.
Daring, self-willed, they do not tremble when they revile angelic majesties, whereas angels who are greater in might and power do not bring a reviling judgment against them before the Lord. But these, like unreasoning animals, born as creatures of instinct to be captured and killed, reviling where they have no knowledge, will in the destruction of those creatures also be destroyed, suffering wrong as the wages of doing wrong. They count it a pleasure to revel in the daytime. They are stains and blemishes, reveling in their deceptions, as they carouse with you, having eyes full of adultery that never cease from sin, enticing unstable souls, having a heart trained in greed, accursed children; forsaking the right way, they have gone astray, having followed the way of Balaam, the son of Beor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; but he received a rebuke for his own transgression, for a mute donkey, speaking with a voice of a man, restrained the madness of the prophet.
These are springs without water and mists driven by a storm, for whom the black darkness has been reserved. For speaking out arrogant words of vanity they entice by fleshly desires, by sensuality, those who barely escape from the ones who live in error, promising them freedom while they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by what a man is overcome, by this he is enslaved. For if, after they have escaped the defilements of the world by the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and are overcome, the last state has become worse for them than the first. For it would be better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn away from the holy commandment handed on to them.
It has happened to them according to the true proverb, “A dog returns to its own vomit,” and, “A sow, after washing, returns to wallowing in the mire.” [2Peter 2:1-22]

Very good! I am concerned that children today do not know how to stand against the bully of satan. Concerned because somewhere along the line an ancestor stopped teaching it, and now they continue to hand down poor teachings, or lack of it, to the next generation. I am sure satan loves that! BUT! “So too at the present time there is a remnant, chosen by grace.” (Romans 11:5)

He is ever faithful, and He loves defeating the enemy. Blessings
I was watching a rerun of an old favorite program from the 60s. In it, a big shot religious leader was preaching to a small southern congregation. His message? “Slow down, relax, enjoy each moment.” Not one word of the Bible, God, Jesus, sin or salvation. Just a feel-good homily. All of this started long before any of us were here to observe. Satan, in the form of a “beautiful serpent,” preached the same thing to Eve: “Go ahead, taste it! It’s good! God doesn’t want you to eat it because if you do, you’ll be just like He is.” Notice that the mention of God was completely opposite of the truth.
Excellent post, RJ. Never give up!
Thank you Linda. Much appreciation. We pretty much have an epidemic of that kind of “preaching” today. It has become the agenda of those Christian “leaders” who have taken control. We see this in most churches. We see it very clearly in Christian media and television. If there was only one anointed righteous one among them he or she would tell the truth and expose their sin. One wonders how many have tried and been shown the door. Until then correction must come from without. Also, their party won’t last much longer anyway because resources are drying up. Only the faithful and true will continue to be supplied, as always. All glory to our Lord Jesus. Blessings to you.

I think this is why Risen Glorified Christ gives those who conquer/overcome a new name, Bride, because the harlot churches say they are Christians, they say all the right things but their heart is far from God. And anyway the first calling those of The Way, “Christians” were using it as a derogatory term. I have been looking for a “First Born Assembly” (Hebrews 12:22-29) and haven’t found it yet, but I realize that Jesus did all he did alone, doing what no one else could do; doing what he heard his Father say and did what he saw his Father doing, taking comfort from Abba Father nights alone on the mountain communing with the Father. Since Jesus said to follow him, I have come to expect to be alone in the natural but all one with God in Christ and Christ in me in Spirit by faith, as Jesus can’t lie and he said he never leaves us and is with us and never forsakes us. I spend many many nights awake talking to Jesus and getting comforted by the Holy Spirit. Thank God for Jesus and the Holy Spirit!
Thanks Yvonne. So heartfelt. There are many Christians these days who spend much time alone with the Lord. I can relate. It is one thing to not fit in this world. That is what should happen, of course. We are commanded to leave the fallen world of sin. It is another thing, however, to not find a place among other believers. I discovered long ago that the only way to find that place, since it pretty much does not exist for many mature Spirit-filled Christian believers who are actually dedicated to the Lord Jesus and His Word, is to create it. The Lord said He will meet with any group fully dedicated to Him even if it is only comprised of two or three. This means as few as two people can comprise what so many call a “church.” Most will absolutely disagree with this but most disagree with much of the Word anyway and refuse to honor it.
Two people in spiritual fellowship fully dedicated to the Lord makes a powerful difference in this world. I think of Peter and John or James and John or Paul and Barnabas or Paul and Silas. The Lord always sent them out two by two. There was never one man in charge but at least two until a larger group of elders could be formed. The Lord Jesus is the only One in charge.
There has been a great war on spiritual fellowship and real groups of believers and Christian marriages over the last several years and thus there have been many casualties. Those who survive continue on, regardless of the circumstances, dedicated to the Lord all the more.
I believe the Lord is always working in the effort to form real groups of believers but when He does they often do not look like what most Christians think they should because they are used to a faux model. The Lord cannot meet with us all physically, though He did appear to some of His people as recorded in Acts. It is why He meets with us as His Holy Spirit, arriving “in our midst.” Obviously, He can meet this way in any number of geographical locations simultaneously. It is far easier to do this with individuals but when two AGREE it adds great power to the meeting. The two become three with Him. The three become four with Him. After that we are off to the races.
I remember many years ago when I formed my first home fellowship that the Lord started it with only three people. Once that meeting took place EVERYTHING miraculously changed for the better. It was a trip. We never outgrew my living room but were very effective. Even then, though, it was challenging at times. There will always be attempts to hurt group unity and they must be overcome.
I encourage you to keep up the good work and your powerful witness. Thank you for being my friend here for so many years. I greatly appreciate it. I believe the Lord has great plans for the future and things are great in His Kingdom and will only get better though so much in this world is otherwise going bad.
There comes a time when spiritual survivors become spiritual thrivers. It is a great time to be alive living for the Lord Jesus.
Keep up the great work, Yvonne. Many blessings to you!

Last night I was on my front porch looking up at the moon. I was thinking about how the moon represents the body of Christ and how the moon shine reflects the light of Christ (The Sun). And then considering the prophesy in Rev. 6:12 I thought about how the Antichrist, and the antichrist system will overshadow the remnant of God’s people. I fear those days may be coming upon us soon, and I pray for the Lord’s soon return. Be prepared for anything my brothers and sisters! The days are getting darker. I’m not sure if we will get a reprieve for a time or not. Also pray for me as I consider taking on a Bible study with newer believers who are still in the church system. I have been outside that camp for years and watching the apostasy. I feel a calling for us to come together in some way.
Thank you Al. Great to hear from you.
Here is something for your consideration: In the first century AD from the time of the Lord’s death and resurrection in 32AD until the destruction of what was left of national Israel/Judea, the city of Jerusalem, and the Temple in 70AD as per the Lord’s clear prophecy, the Community of the Lord (Ekklesia/Church/Qahal/Kingdom) continued to grow in strength, brightness, and numbers. It was the only time when both ancient national Israel/Judea existed alongside the Lord’s growing spiritual Community. The Lord’s people of that time, our forebears, had no fear but possessed great faith. They were led by the great King of all. Israelites were getting saved in increasing numbers. Spiritual war was ongoing. There was also great persecution brought almost exclusively by what Paul referred to as “the circumcision” but they all soldiered on. The unbelievers had no clue what would eventually happen to them.
The Gospels are very clear that it was the final generation. It was the generation that would “see all these things.” That generation began with the birth of the Lord in 3BC. It was thus 72 years from His birth until 70AD. It was truly the last generation and the one that would see all the “Last Days” prophecies take place including the arrival of the Messiah, His ministry, death, burial, and resurrection, Pentecost, the rise of the Lord’s Community, and the end of national Israel. Those days were unlike any other in the history of Israel and while there was darkness the Light continually overcame the darkness. Darkness was defeated. Light won.
This has been happening ever since because the Lord Jesus is truly in charge as King of His spiritual Kingdom on earth.
I encourage you in your new spiritual work. If it is the Lord’s will He will bless you and bless the work. Many Christians are feeling the same as you and are willing to step forth for the Lord. American Christianity in general has failed. The Lord is doing a new thing. He must be high and lifted up and properly honored and obeyed which Unreal Christianity is not doing and will not. He will be with you though there may only be two or three.
Be strong. Be Blessed. The Lord is Faithful.

Hello from the UK
Just to let you know that it is not just Christians in the USA who fight for the States.
I consider the USA is in a civil war already on one with words rather than guns. I explain here if you are interested.
As regards churches and pastors in the USA I came across a site recently of a man about 65 years old who had been a pastor to several churches for 25 years but has since renounced Christ and became a humanist and an atheist as he calls himself.
Whilst he rightly rejects the false Jesus presented by many churches, it is bizarre that he does not see himself as part of the problem.
Thanks for reading and the contribution. I read your article. I believe the Lord has His timeline and He shares it as He wills. It is a spiritual war, of course, and must be seen and approached that way, using spiritual weapons as identified in the NT. Regarding our faith and the fight, the Lord Jesus never quit on us. Real Christians never quit on Him. Blessings to you

A good article, and as an Englishman I can relate to much of what you said in it’s applicability to The UK, as well as to the USA – The AngliCAIN Church with its Jewish anti-Christ libtard archbishop is a house of demons – a mini VatiCain.
However, I think you missed the opportunity to mention who the PHYSICAL FLESHY enemy is, by focusing mainly on the spiritual dimension. If I may, here is my article and Spiritual/Physical interpretation on Ephesians 6:10-12, for your information:

Thank you. We may have a slight difference of opinion here but likely agree on the majors. I read your article. There is undoubtedly a human aspect in the spiritual war. Just as the Lord works through people, so does the enemy. But I believe our priority is to love our enemies, pray for them, and possibly witness to them as able. This is why I understand the NT to state that our primary enemy is of the unseen spiritual realm and he uses tactics that originate in that realm. We do not fight against people, in other words, but against the unseen enemy that has them bound and deceived even if they are actively working with the enemy against the Lord. We all know the story of the Apostle Paul, of course, and how he was a deadly enemy of the Lord but was ignorant of this because he was deceived by the unseen enemy. It took spiritual warfare, prayer, etc. to rescue him, just as all real Christians are rescued from deception and darkness through the methods put forth in the NT. Blessings
Thanks for your reply.
What if these people are physically descended from him as well as spiritually descended from him? Does that not drastically change the paradigm?
In other words our love is wasted upon them, yet more pearls cast before swine. Just as Yashua Messiah said to them:
“How can you escape the damnation of hell?”
And how can they when they invoked His blood upon themselves and their children?
That was their choice. They could not escape unless they changed their attitude. The Lord did everything He could for them. Many descendants of Isaac repented and gave their lives to Him. Many did not. The NT does not support the idea that some people cannot be saved. This would indicate that the Lord’s supreme sacrifice was insufficient and imperfect. He came to set the captives free. He did not come to condemn the world but that the world through Him might be saved. The NT says He sees all humans as exactly the same regarding the need for salvation and shows no partiality, and that He made a perfect sacrifice for all sin. This means one’s salvation is a choice.
