The End of Antichrist.

- - - Dimensions - - -

When God created the earth, He didn’t just make a lump of rock and throw it spinning into space but the invisible things also…

2 Corinthians 4:18b
…for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

I know I’ve mentioned it before, but there are dimensions associated with this creation that are not seen with the eyes of flesh, unless of cause permission is asked for and granted.

2 Kings 6:17
And Elisha prayed, and said, Lord, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the Lord opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.

And so it is that under the surface of the earth is Hades, that although part of this creation exists in another dimension separate from our own…

Luke 10:15
And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted to heaven, shalt be thrust down to hades.

As well as The Abyss, also part of this creation but in a differing dimension created in anticipation of the rebellion of celestial entities.

Luke 8:30-31
30 - And Jesus asked him [Legion, the head demon], saying, What is thy name? And he said, Legion: because many devils were entered into him.
31 - And they besought him that he would not command them to go out into the deep. [Greek: The Abyss - NT12]

And then there is a dimension which also unseen is part of this creation, which contrary to the previous two exists above the surface of the earth in the region we call ‘our atmosphere,’ a dimension whose halls of power, offices and principalities were once occupied by The Watchers; commissioned to look out for the affairs of men but are now inhabited by Satan and his Angels, the temporal rulers of this age…

Ephesians 2:2
Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

The very same place we shall inhabit having met Jesus to receive our eternal frames, whom having been judged shall thereafter receive a rank, office and authoritative position to use to rule justly over the earth in place of Satan. [Rev 1:26-27 / Rev 5:10 / Rev 20:6]

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
16 - For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17 - Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

So, there are numerous dimensions associated with this creation, and could well be others of which we have not been made aware, being on a need-to-know-basis…

Deuteronomy 29:29
The secret things belong unto the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.

- - - The Antichrist - - -

So why am I stating all of this again? Well, to remind you that although Satan has occupied the invisible halls of power in the First heaven from where he has the advantage, swaying the minds of those who do not believe to do his will…

2 Corinthians 4:4
In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

He being an Angel, or more precisely... of the order of the Cherubim, has no right to gain control of that which was exclusive given to men, even our dimension, nor indeed is God able without breaking His Word.

Psalm 115:16
The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord's: but [this dimension of] the earth hath he given to the children of men.

However, to ransom us from the power of the Devil God in accordance with this law saved us, by sending His Son become a man in the person of Christ, born of a women of the ancestry of men.

John 1:14
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Thus, in an attempt to control our dominion, Satan shall do the same by sending his son either by being born [to which I lean] of a women else possess human flesh and appear as Antichrist.

2 Thessalonians 2:8
And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

- - - The Battle over Man’s Dominion - - -

Okay, though there is so much more I should say regarding this issue, I think I have laid enough of a foundation for the reader to consider the possibility that the final battle is now over our dominion, which is the nub of why Satan has such a controversy with God over Man ruling this reality in which we walk…

Job 1:8-11
8 - And the Lord said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?
9 - Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought?
10 - Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land.
11 - But put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath, and he will curse thee to thy face.

Revelation 12:10
And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

I mean, why doesn’t Satan accuse the the mischievous goats and cockerels before God? Both of which I can attest to having been attacked by when turning my back! Well, once again because they are under our dominion, given to us.
[Next time you hear of an extinction, see the lack of wildlife or hear of science bringing an egg to a chicken wrapped in the Supermarket in just over twenty one days, think upon these things.]

Genesis 1:26
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

Okay, so as Christ for our good [1 Tim 2:5], so shall Antichrist become a man for our hurt…

Revelation 13:15
And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

- - - The End of Antichrist - - -

But as the title to this blog suggests, I have written all the above that we might consider Antichrist’s end, whom as Christ at his demise…

Daniel 8:25
And through his [Antichrist] policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand. [Destroyed by Christ - 2 Thess 2:8b]

Daniel 11:45
And he [Antichrist] shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him. [Christ shall destroy Antichrist.]

...shall also descend into Hades below after his demise…

Isaiah 14:9-10
9 - Hell [Hades] from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.
10 - All they shall speak and say unto thee, Art thou also become weak as we? art thou become like unto us?

But not as Jesus who was sinless, to rise in the First Resurrection to an endless life, who with those who have been washed from their sin through faith in His work of redemption on a Cross…

Romans 8:11
But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

But shall rise with the damned who having rejected Christ died in their sin, then to be judged that a place might be found in hell that is worthy of their crimes, into which they shall be cast.

Revelation 19:20
And the beast [Antichrist] was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire [Hell] burning with brimstone.

Matthew 25:41
Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

- - - The Valley of Decision - - -

I’d like to finish with two things.

1). The first is that you to ask yourself who having sinned…

Ecclesiastes 7:20
For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.

…if you will reject God’s only provision for sin, His Son’s death on a Cross. For if you do, you now know your end.

2). Secondly, if as myself you have lusted after, idolised and near worshipped the things of this temporal dimension in the form of power, the flesh else money, then put these things in perspective by considering Antichrist’s end who had all of these and more to the full as did Solomon…

Revelation 13:4
And they worshipped the dragon [Satan] which gave power unto the beast: [Antichrist] and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

Because, having been cast out of this dominion into Hades through the medium of death, Antichrist shall be seen for what he really is having been stripped of all his beauty, wealth and authority as shall all cast into that place because they excused their sin, thus rejected Christ.

Isaiah 14:9-11
9 - Hell [Hades] from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.
10 - All they shall speak and say unto thee, Art thou also become weak as we? art thou become like unto us?
11 - Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee.

- - - Finally - - -

Friend, take it from a man in his mid-fifties [56], blink once and you are in your thirties, blink again and you’re fifty and over and if by chance you are permitted to blink a third time it is nearly over after which comes the judgement [Heb 9:27]. Think upon these things while you may, for God reaches out with the free gift of eternal life purchased at the expense witnessing the death of His Son on a Cross. And all that is needed on your part is that you reach out and take it with the hands faith, having first acknowledged your need of a saviour because of sin.

Romans 10:17
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by The Word of God.

Indeed, even now there is a new life waiting for you free from the vice of pride by which comes much grief and contention. [Prov 13:10]

Romans 12:2
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

It is time to make a decision!

Joel 3:14
Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.

Because my friend…

Jeremiah 8:20
The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved.

So choose, but choose life. [Deut 30:19]

Romans 13:12
The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.

Personally, I have claimed part of this great exchange, even the salvation of my soul but press on to receive the rest, even those things that attain to this fleeting life that must not rule me as in times passed but that I might rule over them to become a blessing to all to the praise of God.

Galatians 3:13-14
13 - Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
14 - That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

2 Corinthians 5:21
For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

2 Corinthians 8:9
For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.

Isaiah 53:4-5
4 - Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5 - But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

And… so what are you waiting for weary traveller?

Oh… someone who admires you might think you become weak! But let me tell you, not anywhere near as weak and as you’ll look in Hades once joined by Antichrist and all the famous, once beautiful and powerful people of the world lusts after not knowing their end..
