If we are in the End Times, the Antichrist is either already here or will arrive soon. How are we to respond?
Greg Laurie gives a wonderful message on this topic in the video below. According to Greg, Christians will be raptured before the Antichrist arrives so that is an extremely urgent reason to turn to Christ and be saved from all the turbulence that will in fact come upon the world. Today is the anniversary of 9/11. Those of us who were alive to experience that terrible day have memories of where we were and how we felt. But that day will pale in comparison to the end of the world which comes with Armageddon. Greg describes that Day in his message.
The teachings on Antichrist are all over the Bible. We don’t know when many things will happen, but we do know a lot about how they will happen. Prophecies are clearly spoken in the Old Testament in just about every book, especially the prophets.
God knows the future and He reveals the Truth to help us be prepared. These warnings are given to emphasize that we need a Savior. After all, the opposite of the antichrist is Christ. The Answer to the Antichrist is Christ. The bottom line is this….
Who will we be following? In the Rapture, Christ comes for His Bride, the Church, all Christians. All others will be left behind.
At the very end of time, after Armageddon, there will be the Great White Throne Judgment (Revelation 20:11-15), Christians will not be there.
That is the Good News of the Gospel: we will be saved from Judgment if we are in Christ. Christ is actually coming twice in the days ahead.
Greg explains that beautifully in his message.
Without Christ, we are liable for the payment of our sins. In Christ, there is no condemnation (Romans 8:1). Christ has made the payment in full!
What about America? Greg gives several possibilities in his message titled, “Antichrist, America and Armageddon“.
