Who is the anti-Christ?
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Father, I know this is an evil and sin-filled world I live in. Please, protect me, but don't let me be afraid. Let me be bold in declaring Your Truth to this lost world and not be afraid to speak up. Now more than ever I need Your strength to be the servant You have called me to be. Help me, strengthen me, and guide me to do Thy will. In the name of Jesus I pray...AMEN!
***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: I have spoken often in the past 10 yrs how state governments are looking more like an organized crime family than the people elected to have the needs of their citizens as their 1 priority. We have over a dozen states, with more coming on board each year, who are now selling marijuana which is still a federal crime. Too many states have extorted their citizens through crushing taxation of every form you can imagine. There are ten states currently working on legalizing prostitution and taxing that activity. On the street that is known as being a pimp. During the past 20 years, all 50 states now offer different forms of legalized gambling. Argue with me if you like, but dealing drugs, selling sex, extortion rackets, and gambling, these are the bread and butter operations of organized crime!!! Why care? Simple. Even though much of this type of activity is considered “victimless crimes,” that is simply a marketing lie from hell. In the end, these “vices” leave destroyed human lives in their wake. Instead of working for the good of their citizens, lazy and irresponsible state governments have now decided to sacrifice the very LIVES of their citizens for a few dollars. Proof? The state of New Jersey last month took in more wagers on sporting events than was taken in Las Vegas. NEW JERSEY. This wasn’t instead of Vegas wagers, in ADDITION to Vegas wagers. I am fully aware some of that money was being bet through illegal bookmakers or offshore, but I guarantee you at least 50% was “new money,” or the initial real lives of a new generation of gamble-holics! State governments are now just as destructive and predatory as any of the illegal activities they routinely prosecute and put people in prison for!!!

Is George Soros the anti-Christ? One of the FACTS of this whole Ukrainian impeachment debacle the Democrats are engaging in that hasn’t gotten much exposure, nor will it in the mainstream media, is the huge role Hungarian billionaire George Soros played. Soros funded NGO’s (non-government organizations) have been a huge player in manipulating the politics and finances of the independent states that used to be part of the Soviet Union. Soros organizations have had a stronghold in the Ukraine and were largely responsible for the 2014 overthrown of the government at that time. Of course, in the end, it is all about money and power. These are the types of operations Soros has been involved in all around the world for the past 40+ years, INCLUDING HERE IN THE UNITED STATES!
The Bible has much to say about this individual who will dominate the world in the last days. Throughout history there has been much speculation who this person would be. Each generation has had a person many felt was the anti-Christ. In recent history, Adolph Hitler was thought to be the anti-Christ, but proved to be just another of histories evil men. Over the years many speculated if former President, Barack Hussein Obama was the anti-Christ. I tried to explain to people who asked me that question, that he was not smart enough to be that person.
It takes roughly ONE BILLION DOLLARS to get elected President. It takes an army of millions of people throughout all 50 states working for a campaign. This incredible machine of money and people is not something a single human being puts together, but instead, is already in place run by a few people whose names for the most part people will never know.
Who are these shadowy figures? They are extremely wealthy and powerful men who are like characters out of a Bond movie. They truly do have designs on influencing the world with their political and social ideology. One of these men is George Soros. Soros is a Hungarian born immigrant worth apx 15 billion dollars. He is a currency speculator, stock investor, businessman, philanthropist, and political activist. George Soros is also an avowed atheist and a tool of satan who opposes God at every turn.
Soros is best known in political circles for his funding of groups like MoveOn.org, the Center for American Progress, and America Coming Together, all pro-Democratic and ultra-liberal groups. Soros spent tens of millions and worked tirelessly behind the scenes through various groups he funded to insure Barack Hussein Obama would win the Presidency in 2008 and 2012. He advocates an extreme liberal and socialist ideology that is a match made in heaven for those with an extreme liberal and socialist political view.
While millions of Americans suffered during the economic crisis of 2008, NOT George Soros. It is estimated he has profited at least 1 BILLION dollars by shorting the markets prior to that crisis. Many claim he has pursued the destabilization of the dollar and the move towards socialism to not only profit handsomely, but see his socialist political ideology advanced. He has singe handedly helped influence more than any one man the political direction this nation has taken.
On top of his political involvement, Soros is an avowed enemy of God. He helps fund with his billions efforts to slaughter babies through abortion around the world, euthanasia, legalizing drugs, the radical homosexual agenda, and atheism groups. Soros is determined to use his great wealth to try and fight God and the Truth of the Bible at every turn. Sadly in our current world, it is the tools of satan like Soros, who have had a greater negative impact on our culture than men of God who have invested in the Kingdom. While they have bought their favorite preachers planes and mansions, built buildings, and help fund the Christian trough, Soros has used his wealth to reach the masses in the marketplace with the lies of satan!
My personal thoughts are that while it is possible the anti-Christ is alive today, we still don't know who it is. However, as I shared over the years, the current global economic crisis in many parts of the world could easily lead to a one-world economic system. That of course give rise to a one-world government, followed shortly by a one-world religion. That will also give rise to the anti-Christ which will oversee it all as the last days of human history unfolds My friend, all of this, once thought not even remotely possible in our lifetime, is now not only very possible, but very probable!
I love you and care about you so much. The challenge of this message today is that time is very short, the end is not that far away, Jesus is coming at any moment. We have a brief, a very brief window left to see the glory of God once again before the final chapter of human history unfolds. We are living in the last days. This is our time to make our lives count for Christ and all eternity. May the Lord find us faithful at His coming!!!
Let me leave you today with the Biblical passages that lay out the characteristics of the anti-Christ.
