is the very near future.
The world is in chaos, and seems to be ending.
weapons have been used in combat for the first time since 1945; a
global Depression – far worse than the 1930s – has collapsed the world
economy; rioting, terrorism, and street crime are rampant; totalitarian
leftists and fanatical rightists are battling for power worldwide; the
Bill of Rights and the Magna Carta are dead; the only limit to
universal surveillance is the widespread collapse of the power grid and
the unreliability of computer networks; police checkpoints, torture,
and forced-labor camps are everywhere; in all religions, fanaticism and
cultism are replacing authentic faith; charity, civility, and ordinary
sanity are rare; epidemics, earthquakes, volcanoes, freakish storms,
tidal waves, invasions of vermin, crop and animal plagues, and food
shortages add to the misery.
difficult to get any accurate news – or even biased, stupid
government/corporate propaganda – about what is happening throughout
the world. The Internet is mostly down, and rumors have replaced CNN
of conservative Christians who were sure that they would be Raptured
off the planet (or led to safe places by Our Lady and/or the Saints)
before the Tribulation began are now despondent and spiritually bereft;
they never expected to suffer as they are doing now, and think that God
has abandoned them.
collapsing world, with its mass graves and universal fear and despair,
a new “hope” has come. Handsome, enthusiastic, well-fed, well-dressed,
and well-funded messengers are spreading the word everywhere that
Christ has returned, and is going to restore the world, starting now.
The evangelists are telling anyone who will listen to gather at a local
church (or other meeting hall) to see him, to pledge allegiance to him,
to be healed, and to be fed. The missionaries promise forgiveness,
salvation, wealth, power, and security to those who obey.
go to this meeting? Bear in mind that honoring the False Christ would
be a deadly spiritual error with eternal consequences. Therefore,
before accepting the invitation, it makes sense to get answers to some
simple questions about the savior-of-the-day.
Thirteen Simple Questions
new savior claim to be Jesus Himself?
the False Christ comes, he will not come as an enemy of Jesus – he will
claim to be Jesus returned (1 John
2:22-23). He will
come in his own name (John 5:43), to claim
the Church as his own, and to assert his own divinity (Matthew
24:15; Mark 13:14; 2 Thessalonians 2:4). The
False Christ will not come (in the manner of the Communists or radical
Islamists) to destroy the Church. He will come appearing to be
righteous. The False Christ will not meet the Left Behind-style
stereotype of the left-wing, New Age Antichrist: a neo-pagan, Satanist,
vegetarian, pacifist, ecologist, feminist, pot-smoking homosexual.
will not glorify Himself; He will glorify the Father and render all
things to Him (1
Corinthians 15:24, 28). When
Christ comes, He will not need to make any claims on His own behalf;
the heavens, the earth, and all who dwell on Earth will give Him honor.
>From the time that the Sign of the Son of Man appears in the skies (Matthew
truth about Christ will be obvious to everyone.
savior return in a miraculous fashion, on clouds of glory, accompanied
by the resurrected saints and angels?
Christ will either (a) use technology or the occult arts to appear in
the skies in glory, or (b) will use his public relations apparatus to
explain why such a manner of appearance is not necessary for him to be
who he claims to be.
will return on the clouds in glory, with the angels and all the saints
accompanying Him. The Scriptural promises regarding the manner of His
1:11; Matthew 24:30-31; Matthew 26:64) will be
fulfilled literally and completely.
return been publicized by the media and the Church Administration?
appearance of the False Christ will be a media and ecclesiastical
event, planned and exploited by propagandists and advertisers to the
greatest extent possible at that time.
Christ returns, the Church Administration, the propagandists, and their
infrastructure will be destroyed by Him (Revelation
18) – if any
of these people, organizations, and technology have remained in
existence that long. The Return of Christ will be known for what it is,
everywhere in the world, by everyone – with no media “push” needed or
24:27; Luke 17:24)
savior send out human messengers, seeking converts and worshippers?
Christ will send out evangelists, and will seek converts. (Matthew
apostles will counterfeit holiness, zeal, and orthodoxy – but the fruit
of their deeds will be evil. (2
Corinthians 11:13-15, Matthew 7:15-23)
will not proselytize; He will know His own and will draw them all to
Himself, from all over the world (John
10:4-5; Matthew 24:28; Luke 17:37).
follows the savior?
Christ will appeal to most people on Earth at that time – including
most of those who now consider themselves to be “orthodox”,
“conservative”, “traditional”, or “saved”. (So great will be his allure
that – unless God shortened the reign of the deceiver – no one would be
saved. However, for the sake of the Elect, God has shortened the time
allotted to the False Christ to the very minimum – as noted in Matthew
False Christ will attract, and reward, the rich, the powerful, and the
proud – including the noble and royal houses of ancient “Christendom”.
The Pharisees and Sadducees of our time will go down to their doom,
following the accursed one who comes in his own name. In this, they
will follow the precedent set by the Temple Masters, Scribes, and
Pharisees of the time of Jesus and the Jewish revolts against Rome.
Jesus draws to himself will come from all nations, races, classes, and
creeds; “sinners”, outcasts, the humble, and the poor will be chief
among them, just as when Jesus was first on Earth.
savior planning to establish new religious orders, secret police, and
special courts to punish “sinners”?
Christ will do all of this, if his reign lasts long enough. He may
claim to be establishing the “Social Reign of Christ the King”, or to
be claiming his own divine rights.
will execute Divine Judgment at the time of His return, drawing His
Elect to Himself and destroying His enemies by His own action (with no
need to set up any new earthly institutions to carry out this act of
Thessalonians 2:8,10-12; 1 Corinthians 15:24-26; Revelation 19:11-21)
groups of “sinners” targeted by the savior reminiscent of the list of
those who had been persecuted by the Nazis?
False Christ has sufficient time, he will set up a New Inquisition, and
his list of victims will be reminiscent of those whom the Nazis
persecuted. Jews will head his target list, followed by liberals,
leftists, homosexuals, and anyone (of any faith) who rejects him. He
will not tolerate Islam, atheism, “interfaith”, religious diversity, or
worship of anything other than himself.
will judge perfectly, and will save faithful Jews and Gentiles alike –
whatever religion (or none) that they may now profess, and whatever
their social standing or earthly reputation may have been.
savior working miracles – up to and including resurrection of the dead
– for a selected few who are in his presence?
Christ will work miracles in this manner (Matthew
24:24; 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12), but they
will be by the power of satan and not the power of God. His miracles
will be materialistic, showy, presumptuous, and oriented toward earthly
power (and his own self-glorification). Their pattern will be the
“miracles” that satan proposed to Christ in the desert. (Matthew
miracles will be universal in scope and will – in sum – be greater than
any since the time of Creation. In fact, Christ will renew, heal, and
transfigure the whole Earth at the start of His Reign.
the character of the prophet that preceded the messiah?
Antichrist arose and remains within the structure of the Church (1 John
forerunner and prophet of the False Christ lives in luxury in a palace (Matthew
ermine and custom-made red slippers, is honored by worldly men, and is
forerunner of Christ in this era follows the model of John the Baptist
and Elias: he lives in austerity, is despised by the worldly who know
of him, is known to few, and is believed by fewer.
savior being promoted by Benedict XVI and his hierarchy?
Christ will arise from within the Church, will be promoted and honored
by the Church Administration (except for a faithful few clergy and
religious), and will proclaim his own divinity from his position within
Administration will reject, hate, and fight Christ – until their enmity
meets its reward from Christ.

Catholic Church, Opus Dei, and like-minded groups in other
Christ will give riches, honor, and power to the occupant of the Throne
of Peter, the Church Administration, Opus Dei, and their allies.
will swiftly and utterly destroy all these people and organizations (2
Thessalonians 2:8,10-12). They
will descend from exaltation under the False Christ, to abasement and
doom at the Return of Christ. (Revelation
Christ will come to Rome, and be proclaimed there.
will destroy Rome, the spiritual Babylon of our time. Mary’s prophecy

18:10, 21-24), will be

natural disasters that preceded his appearance will intensify (Revelation

answers to these questions should make it obvious whether the messiah
being offered is the real One, or a satanic imposter.
The Six Great Miraculous Events At
the Return of Christ
contrast, when Our Lord returns to establish His Kingdom, there will be
a specific sequence of events (described in Scripture) – a series of
actions that will be possible only for God, and that will be the
greatest miracles since the Creation.
time that the power of the False Christ is at its peak, it will begin
to collapse, by Divine Intervention (Acts 2:19-20, referring to Joel 2:30-31; Matthew
24:29; Mark 13:24-25; Luke 21:25-26; Revelation 6:12-14; Revelation
of the Son of Man will appear in the sky; the nations of the earth will
mourn as they see – too late – the truth about Christ. (Matthew
24:30; Revelation 1:7)
will send the angels to gather up all the Elect, those living and those
who have died. (Matthew
24:31; Mark 13:27)
faithful dead will rise – the First Resurrection (Romans
8:11; 1 Corinthians 6:13-14; 1 Corinthians 15:21-23; 1 Corinthians
15:51-55; 1 Thessalonians 4:15-16; Revelation 20:5-6).
living faithful will be transfigured and will be taken up to Christ:
the real Rapture. (Matthew
24:37-41; Luke 17:34-35; 1 Thessalonians 4:17)
will return to Earth on the clouds of heaven, in power and great glory,
along with the angels and with the saints whom he has taken up to
(Zechariah 14:5; Daniel 7:13-14; Matthew

9:26; Luke 21:27; Luke 22:69; John 1:51; Acts 1:10-11, 2 Thessalonians
1:7-10; Revelation 19:11-16)
of Divine Judgment, Christ will destroy His enemies (Isaiah
