“Castles in the Sand”

We are continuing with our series entitled “Israel: “God's timepiece.” Prophecy is being fulfilled that is counting down to the return of Christ and the nation of Israel will be in the center of it. So today I want to give you an inside look into the personality, the plan and program of the Antichrist. Who is he? I believe that we are approaching the time of seeing the Antichrist revealed. He may not be a household name yet but he will be in the days to come. The Bible reveals certain characteristics of the Antichrist in the book of Daniel.

Daniel 11:36 “Then the king (antichrist) shall do according to his own will: he shall exalt and magnify himself above every god, shall speak blasphemies against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the wrath has been accomplished; for what has been determined shall be done.

 There are certain self words that apply to him: self- will, self-determination, self- exaltation, self-aggrandizement. This person will be an extremely narcissistic, a very selfish individual… he will give the impression that he is looking out for the best interests of other people but it will be a ruse, it will be a fake agenda. The Bible says very clearly that he will be empowered by the devil and he will display similar characteristics of Satan himself.

The Antichrist will be a person of great power, he will be extremely persuasive and will excel in leadership ability. He will have a throne, that is a seat / position that will be highly honored by everyone in the world. And he will be permitted to carry out the devil's agenda and will be empowered by the devil, and God will authorize this to take place.

And many will be impressed with this man of the New World Order, they will believe in him or they will be taken in because of his promises to reward them or because of his threats. And they will believe in him as their world leader and will worship Him and in so doing will worship the “dragon”, the devil.

 But it's all “castles in the sand" because he will conquer nations, and carry out his agenda, but all of the self worship and scheming and self exaltation will come to an end, because Christ will come like a tide on the beach and destroy all of those sand castles.

How do you stay strong in the Lord? How can a person continue to be a factor for the good and for God in times of shifting sands and castles built to human personalities?

 The secret is to know God…not just know about God, but truly know Him; His ways, His intentions, and have intimacy with Him in the secret place, dwelling in the presence of God even in times of trouble and uncertainty.

Psalm 91: 1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.”
