Plans for a Coronavirus Vaccine and Digital ID Spark “Mark of the Beast” Hysteria

  Let’s see how they come to this ridiculous conclusion:

 Claiming that Macron is positioning himself to become the leader of the New World Order, with near-unanimous backing from the UN security council, the article said: “As people who study the end times scripture of truth from the Bible, we have long known that when Antichrist arises, he rises at a time when there is global chaos and uncertainty, with a plan to bring in global ‘peace and safety’.  So it’s interesting to now see Emmanuel Macron of France, who actually looks like the Central Casting idea of Antichrist, wanting to bring in an era of ‘global peace’.  And… He has the backing and support of nearly all of the United Nations Security Council.”[6]

  It is difficult to imagine anything so childishly silly, and so devoid of truth, as this Futurist conclusion:

  Firstly, many politicians want to lead the New World Order, but that does not make any one of them the Antichrist.  That just makes them self-serving, greedy, ambitious, power-hungry politicians. 

  Secondly, for “people who study the end times scripture of truth from the Bible”, the good folk at “Now the End Begins” are woefully ignorant when it comes to what Bible prophecy actually teaches.  They say, “we have long known that when Antichrist arises, he rises at a time when there is global chaos and uncertainty.”  When Antichrist arises?  Antichrist arose many centuries ago!  It is the Roman Papacy and no other, as recognised by the Lord’s people throughout all ages.  He is here, he has been here for centuries, and no one else even remotely fits the prophetic portrait.  Again, the evidence, too great for inclusion here, is laid out in my book, The Antichrist.

  Thirdly, there is this utterly ridiculous statement: “Emmanuel Macron of France, who actually looks like the Central Casting idea of Antichrist.”  Hold on just a minute: the Antichrist of the Futurists has a look?  Now where in all the Bible did they extract that little nugget of nonsense from?  And they claim to be “experts” on Bible prophecy and a future Antichrist!  Do not trust such self-appointed “experts”.  They may not mean to, but they are leading men astray by their false speculations about important biblical issues.

  Now for another absolutely ridiculous part of their theory about poor Macron.  His first name happens to be Emmanuel, and of course the Hebrew meaning of Emmanuel is “God with us” (Isa. 7:14).  This is one of the glorious names of the Lord Jesus Christ (Matt. 1:23), for He alone fulfilled the prophecy of Isa. 7:14.  But the people at “Now the End Begins” believe this is further evidence that Emmanuel Macron is possibly the Antichrist – he is a counterfeit Messiah because his parents named him Emmanuel at his birth!

  This is taking absurdity to new extremes.  If this is the kind of “biblical study” they engage in to come up with proofs of their theory, they are clutching at straws indeed.
