Christforums

.... an orthodox (true and correct when contrasted with Liberal theology) Protestant forum whose members espouse the Apostolic doctrines in the Biblical theologies set forth by Augustine, Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, John Calvin and John Knox etc. We do not "argue" with nor do we solicit the membership of people who espouse secular or cultic ideologies. We believe that our conversations are to be faith building and posts that advance heretical or apostate thinking will be immediately deleted and the poster permanently banned from the forum. This is a Christian community for people to explore the traditional theologies of Classical Protestantism. Those who would challenge the peace and harmony that we enjoy here as fellow believers are directed to another website.

Pool of "antichrists"?

Recommended Posts

In reading bible prophecy, and seeing people try to guess who THE Antichrist will be, I had a thought. Curious what other people think about it. Thought it might be interesting to discuss. It's just a theory; I wonder if Satan might not HAVE to have a group of people being groomed as possible Antichrist "candidates"? Satan is not omniscient or omnipotent so let's say he has one single man in the wings, waiting, while he moves his chess pieces into place, and then OOPS that guy suddenly dies. DOH! Then what is Lucifer going to do? So it seems more likely that he would have to have a whole group of followers that he is constantly grooming to rise up and be his false christ and false prophet, no? Let me know if this is contrary to scripture. What do you think? Could this be a more specific reference than what has been previously thought, when John, Mark and Matthew reference multiple antichrists?

There are Anti-Christ(s) and also THE Anti-Christ. There should be no short supply of followers, God will make sure of that:

 

2 Thessalonians 2:11-12 Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false, in order that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

 

And while Satan is corporeal, he is a wonderfully made, a perfect creature in the sense that he is a master craftsman at his trade, quite capable of achieving his purpose by God's design.

 

God bless,

William

True, I guess I mean that I'm wondering if he is more specifically preparing certain elite followers to be "his man" in the end. I wouldn't want to add to the scripture or build a theology on it, but it's just an interesting possibility.
