Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped; so that he as God sitting in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
I don't know how close we are to the actual reveal of the son of perdition, the anti-Christ, but I DO know this:
I have been a born again, believing, Holy Spirit filled Christian for more years than I have not, and I have never seen nor experienced the corruptness, hatred, and all around foulness that I see from those who call themselves "Christian" as we do today.
The racism; the desire/love/lust for possessions, power, money and status; The adoration and veneration of angels and "saints"; We are bombarded with more and more pastors, ministers and clergy involved in a myriad of sexual sins including pedophilia, rape, adultery (with multiple partners as well) within the congregation, and homosexuality; the accepting of homosexuality as godly while any scripture that's understood to proclaim even an inclination toward homosexuality and the gay lifestyle as a sin, is now being pushed as homophobia, a possible hate crime and anti love. In other words, to view homosexuality as sinful is in itself a misinterpretation of scripture and is thereby the real sin and anti Christ and a pastor may find their tax exemption revoked and charged with a hate crime.
There is a strong false spirit of Nationalism that's favored above and beyond the Spirit of God, Christ and the bible, further fueled and empowered by the rhetoric of the current president of the USA. The spirit of this nation is therefore really their God!
New ageism, Witchcraft and spiritualism is being taught as compatible with Christianity. There are actual "christian" churches that promote cannabis, nudity as well as swinging that identify as Christian (they say Christ died for their sin, preach from the bible)! There are "christian" pastors who more loudly proclaim there is no such thing as hell and those who believe there is are scripturally ignorant and unsound. There are large congregations that will follow these leaders and false prophets right to the place they claim is a misinterpretation of scripture!
This is happening worldwide, involving those who identify as Evangelical, Christian, Atheists and everything in between. I am not necessarily referring to those religions and cults that initially claim to be Christians to draw people in, such as Mormonism, Unification, Unitarians, Scientology, the Filipino Church Of Christ, Jehovah Witnesses, Seventh Day Adventists, Black Israelites, etc., although they also are guilty of these same sinful and crimes within their own organizations and churches, while also masquerading as angels and ministers of light.
So, when I see entire denominations, "Christian" communities, and right wing Evangelicals unequivocally and unrepentantly give support to, strengthen, side with and partner with a person like Donald Trump, let alone the President of this so called "Christian Nation", while vehemently declaring those who identify as Christian and are speaking out AGAINST the sin done by and in the Trump administration as "against God" (which they also proclaim for the Nation of Israel regardless of their heinous crimes) because "Trump (and Israel) is appointed by God and is God's man spoken about in prophecy", I know we are in the final few years of the last days.
