Not really sure if I should have uploaded this as a ‘rant’, maybe I’ll move it later. Anyway, I just watched the following video and had to leave the comment below.
Jesus warned us that these deceivers would appear...
4 - And Jesus answered and said to them, be careful that no one deceives you.
5 - For many shall come in my name, saying, I am the Christ; and shall lead many astray.
For we are clearly told that Jesus second coming shall not be as His first, via human birth but rather with power...
23 - “Then if anyone says to you, ‘Behold, here is the Christ,’ or ‘There He is,’ do not believe him.
24 - For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect.
25 - Behold, I have told you in advance.
26 - So if they say to you, ‘Behold, He is in the wilderness,’ do not go out, or, ‘Behold, He is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe them.
27 - For just as the lightning comes from the east and flashes even to the west, so will the coming of the Son of Man be.”
Paul was also concerned that some Christians would be deceived by these ‘false Christs’ when he said...
2 Corinthians 11:3-4
3 - But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ.
4 - For if one comes and preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted, I fear you might put up with them.
Who also warned us that towards the end, that most of the [visible] Church would fall into Apostasy and follow Antichrist.
2 Thessalonians 2:3-4
3 - Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy [of the Church] comes first, and the man of lawlessness [Antichrist] is revealed, the son of destruction,
4 - who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God.
Forgive me but this ‘ex-patrol officer’ just doesn’t seem to fit the prophesied Second Coming of Jesus Christ revealed in Scripture....
29 - “But immediately after the tribulation of those days THE SUN WILL BE DARKENED, AND THE MOON WILL NOT GIVE ITS LIGHT, AND THE STARS WILL FALL from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
30 - And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the SON OF MAN [Jesus] COMING ON THE CLOUDS OF THE SKY with power and great glory.
31 - And He will send forth His angels with A GREAT TRUMPET and THEY WILL GATHER TOGETHER His elect from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other.”
The term ‘Son of Man’ is used to emphasise that ‘God the Word’ became a man for the purpose of paying for the sins of Mankind. For the only acceptable payment for the sins of a man is the death of a man, nothing more and nothing less will do... which if a person should pay himself shall never see life again but the judgement of God. But if this debt is claimed via faith in Christ’s final sacrifice for sin upon a Cross, though that person die they shall live again.
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies”.
