In this blog I am not going to go into Revelation or into end times theology. Donald Trump could be the anti-Christ foretold in Revelation or the anti-Christ could be a man named Zapp Dax from the year 2876. I am not going to go Into that. I am a pre-millenialist that means that I do take Revelation literal and I do believe that there will be a man who epitomizes all that is wrong with humanity and will lead many in a final battle between good an evil.
Here is a joke for those who like Eschatology That is end times theology. I am a generation Xer, that means I am a pre-millennial. The generation that is being born right now is post-millennial. And if we see a person in his or her 20s they are a Millennial.
Anyway. I do believe that Donald Trump is an anti-Christ. Anti means either against or opposite.
2 John 6 And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love.(notice that Trump walks in many things but he never walks in love)
7 I say this because many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist. 8 Watch out that you do not lose what we[a] have worked for, but that you may be rewarded fully.
They may believe in the Christ. But they don’t believe Jesus the Rabbi and the Christ who died for our sins are the same people. The religious right act like Jesus was born and then went to the last supper and was crucified and then rose again. They do not believe that Jesus walked the earth teaching us sinful humans how to be better people. He taught us to be what we were supposed to be before the fall. I believe that we can’t do that without the Holy Spirit guiding us.
But they never quote Jesus’ teachings. They quote the Old Testament, the epistles, and Revelation but they rarely use His words. He who taught us not to serve money. He who taught us to love our enemies. He who taught us that we must live by love,truth, and faith. They quote none of this. They deny Jesus daily in what they say and what they do.
And Jesus’ own words from John 14 23 Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. 24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.
Logic dictates. If don’t follow His teachings. they don’t love Him. Therefore they do not love and serve Him but a false Christ. An anti-Christ. A Christ that wants you to hate your enemies. A Christ that wants you to favor the rich over the poor. A Christ that wants any Tom Dick and Harry to buy a semi-automatic.
This is not Christ. This is the opposite of Christ. This is anti-Christ. Is there any person on earth that is a better example of the Spirit of the anti-Christ than Donald J. Trump? Jesus is humble, Trump is proud. Jesus loves His enemies, Trump slanders them. Jesus told the rich young man to give up all of his belongings. Trump’s whole life has been about accumulating wealth.
Now will Trump win in November? Will he become a terrible dictator? Will he form an alliance with 9 other neo-fascist nations? Will he start a persecution that will be even worse than Hitler’s? Will he decide that He is God and demand that everyone worships him?
I don’t know. But I do know this. Even if he isn’t THE antichrist. He is a antichrist. And our nation, the world and my faith can not afford an antichrist as the leader of the free world.
