IT IS THE KUNDALINI SPIRIT THAT IS IN THE BETHEL CHURCH & CO.


IT IS THE KUNDALINI SPIRIT THAT IS IN THE BETHEL CHURCH & CO.

The Kundalini spirit is manifesting itself in the Christian, charismatic churches today, where they preach a different Jesus, a different kind of gospel and a different kind of Spirit! (See 2. Corinthians 11:4) It is an epidemic!

WHAT IS THE KUNDALINI SPIRIT?

Kundalini is a demonic spirit known as a counterfeit Holy Spirit, coming from the Eastern Philosophies of Hinduism, which the New-Age philosophy is also based upon.

Under the influence of this demonic Kundalini spirit, people will testify of having “deep spiritual sensations” such as “knowing” other people’s thoughts and full body and outer body feelings of bliss and ecstasy. People also experience uncontrollable physical sensations such as crying, laughing and jerking, twitching and electric spasms, vivid dreams, visions and trances.

I have seen many people manifesting in similar ways after having been through a “fire tunnel,” which is two lines of people standing opposite to each other to form a tunnel. Everybody passes through the middle to have prayer and impartation of the spirit.

IT GOES LIKE THIS

People are deliberately praying for others to receive “more” or “fire” or “new wine” or “drink” or “fresh revelation” by placing their hand on a person’s forehead until a manifestation occurs. This could be shouting or wailing, shaking, or falling flat out, slain in the spirit as they call it. Most people are laughing their heads off while they are being ministered to.

You will also see strange hand movements like wafting, as though the Holy Spirit can be moved by us tangibly waving on the people. This is really a New-Age teaching on manipulating energies, which is clearly not a Biblical phenomenon. Rather, it borders more towards sorcery than anything else.

Drunkenness and bliss bombing is also a common practice. This is when someone is throwing or making the action of a throw onto people who then fall down and roll about as if they’re drunk. They are totally immersed in the activity and cannot be reasoned with. You also see, as I call it, a “spiritual orgy”, where everybody falls over and upon each other in a drunken state, laying hands on each other, as they pray and impart the spirit upon one another. I myself, at one time, when I was involved in this deception, was so “drunk” under this Kundalini spirit that I was not able to walk and drive home. How is this a responsible behavior from a minister, when the Bible says to stay sober and having the Holy Spirit fruit of self-control? (See 1. Peter 5:8 and Galatians 5:22-23) Did Jesus or His disciples ever act like this?   

It is a common practice in these church circles, that people shout at God to declare things over the church or the town or an individual, commanding God’s glory to come down!

You will see weird shaking and involuntary head and body movements. People would do this during other times too, when they are not being ministered to, in response or reaction to just about anything. Some are unaware of doing it, while most are completely unable to stop it from happening.

I remember visiting the Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship Church in the early nineties during the so-called “Revival Blessing Outpouring”, seeing church leaders and others making animal noises and standing on one leg like a flamingo.

Then you have the “soaking” practice, which is taken from New-Age, where people are laying around in a quiet semi-trance like state, visualizing God, imagining being somewhere or walking with Jesus or looking in His face, trying to find out what He is saying and giving their testimony about their experience later to others.

As we can see, it is NOT the Holy Spirit that people are experiencing, but the Kundalini spirit! The Holy Spirit will NOT lead you away from the truth, that is, away from Jesus Christ who is the Way, Truth and Life! (See John 14:6) The Holy Spirit teaches you everything you need to know, and what He teaches is true—it is not a lie! (See 1. John 2:27)

THE DEMONIC RESULTS OF THE KUNDALINI SPIRIT

The consequences for those who have been involved with this spirit of Kundalini in the church is that many end up experiencing symptoms like heart problems, pain in head and spine, gastrointestinal disturbances and nervous problems. Internal sensations have been reported as sensations of burning, oversensitivity to sensory input, hyperactivity or lethargy, great variations in sexual desire and even spontaneous orgasm. Symptoms can be erratic, coming and going without provocation, but are generally unresponsive to medical treatment, since it is a spiritual demonic impartation they have received.

They also experience periods of confusion and being unbalanced as they go through an emotional rollercoaster of feelings of anxiety, guilt, and depression and then swing through feelings of compassion, love, and joy, with accompanying bouts of uncontrollable weeping.

Others experience hearing voices, music, inner sounds, or mantras. Some lose a sense of self as a body, or feeling bigger than the body, or out of the body, resulting in being confused and disoriented. Many also suffer from psychosis, mania, depression, schizophrenia or borderline personality disorder. Many people who have these kinds of spiritual demons are often misdiagnosed and treated with suppressive medication, which unfortunately only further complicates their process. 

In these Kundalini influenced churches, many believe their ministers are genuine prophets of God, but they are actually being ministered to by people who have psychic abilities, are telepathic, and have healing abilities.  
  
If you are in one of these churches that are conducting this evil Kundalini practice, I urge you to come out and get yourself into a church or fellowship of sound Bible teaching.

We have to remember what the Bible says, “That God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. Then Jesus went around doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him! Acts 10:38 NLT

SIGNS OF FALSE PREACHERS WHO TEACH AND PROMOTE MANIFESTATIONS


Jesus warned us that, “False messiahs and false prophets will rise up and perform great signs and wonders so as to deceive, if possible, even God’s chosen ones.” Matthew 24:25 NLT

In other words, these false prophets’ purpose is to deceive, if possible even God’s true followers, by causing them to worship manifestations instead of Jesus Christ only! Their mission is to lead them away from a blessed everlasting life in Jesus Christ into curses and defeat!

Even so, many will follow their evil teachings; for instance through their schools of the supernatural where they charge high dollar fees to enroll! (See 2. Peter 2:2)
 
First and foremost, we must understand that these so-called ministers of the Gospel are: “False prophets who come disguised as harmless sheep but are really vicious wolves.” Matthew 7:15 NLT

The Bible says that, “When these people eat with you in your fellowship meals commemorating the Lord’s love, they are like dangerous reefs that can shipwreck you. They are like shameless shepherds who care only for themselves.” Jude 1:12 NLT

Yes! These people are false apostles. They are deceitful workers, who just like Satan disguise themselves as apostles of Christ meant to destroy you. (See 2. Corinthians 11:13-15)

These false pastors and prophets do the work of Satan with counterfeit power and lying signs and miracles. They will use every kind of evil deception to fool those on their way to destruction, because they refuse to love and accept the truth! So God will cause them to be greatly deceived, and they will believe these lies. Then they will be condemned for enjoying evil rather than believing the truth. (See 2. Thessalonians 2:9-12)

We are living in a time, “When people will no longer listen to sound and wholesome teaching. They will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear. They will reject the truth and chase after myths.” 2. Timothy 4:3-4 NLT

The Bible clearly teaches that we should, “Not believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit. You must test them to see if the spirit they have comes from God. For there are many false prophets in the world.” 1. John 4:1 NLT

Jesus said that you can identify these false prophets, “By their fruit, that is, by the way they act.” Matthew 7:16 NLT

HERE ARE SOME SIGNS WHEREBY YOU CAN IDENTIFY THESE FALSE MINISTERS

They preach a different Jesus, a different kind of Spirit and a different kind of gospel! (See 2. Corinthians 11:4)

“They will cleverly teach destructive heresies and even deny the Master who bought them.” 2. Peter 2:1 NLT

They will not acknowledge Jesus Christ in all His ways as is written in the Word. (See 1. John 4:2)

They brag loudly about themselves with stories of how God uses them in other countries to heal scores of people and even how they raise people from the death! They love to flatter others with these grandiose miracle tales to get what they want, and that is usually money! (See Jude 1:16)

It is so true what the Bible says that, “In their greed they will make up clever lies to get hold of your money.” 2. Peter 2:3 NLT

These false prophets capture you with big words and intellectual double-talk and their prophecies are nothing but high-sounding nonsense that comes from soulish thinking and from the spiritual demonic powers of this world! (See Colossians 2:8)

They love to give themselves special titles as they consider themselves to be “super apostles”, who are the ones who have been appointed and anointed as the leaders of this nation and nations! (See 2. Corinthians 11:5)

These false prophets often claim authority from their dreams. (See Jude 1:8)

They insist that you join them in their obsession with angels, saying they have had visions about these things, even names of angels like Emma, Charles and Irma. (See Colossians 2:18)

These pastors and leaders, “Must be silenced, because they are turning whole families away from the truth by their false teaching. And they do it only for money.” Titus 1:11 NLT

It is these false ministers who would say to Jesus on Judgement Day, “Lord! Lord! We prophesied in your name and cast out demons in your name and performed many miracles in your name.” But Jesus will reply to them, ‘I never knew you. Get away from Me, you who break God’s laws.’ (See Matthew 7:22-23)

The way it is supposed to be is written in the Bible book of Ephesians, where it says that Jesus gave to the church the following gifts: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do His work and build up the church, the body of Christ. This will continue until we all come to such unity in our faith and knowledge of God’s Son that we will be mature in the Lord, measuring up to the full and complete standard of Christ.

Then we will no longer be immature like children. We won’t be tossed and blown about by every wind of new teaching. We will not be influenced when people try to trick us with lies so clever they sound like the truth! (See Ephesians 4:11-16)

WHERE DO WE FIND SUCH A CHURCH NOWADAYS?


Every church that follows Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior is supposed to model herself after the first church from the Bible book of Acts, where the believers “Shared everything they had. They sold their property and possessions and shared the money with those in need.” Acts 2:44-45 NLT

“They felt that what they owned was not their own, so they shared everything they had. There were no needy people among them, because those who owned land or houses would sell them and bring the money to the apostles to give to those in need.” Acts 4:32, 34-35 NLT

It is no wonder that the apostle Paul taught the Corinthian Church this same example of giving and sharing, when he told them the following:

“Give in proportion to what you have. Whatever you give is acceptable if you give it eagerly. And give according to what you have, not what you don’t have. Of course, I don’t mean your giving should make life easy for others and hard for yourselves. I only mean that there should be some equality. Right now you have plenty and can help those who are in need. Later, they will have plenty and can share with you when you need it. In this way, things will be equal.” 2. Corinthians 9:11-14 NLT

The rich were specifically being taught not to be proud and not to trust in their money. Their trust should be in God and they should use their money to do good. They should be rich in good works and generous to those in need, always being ready to share with others! (See 1. Timothy 6:17-18)  


DOES JESUS WANT YOU TO BE POOR?

Jesus said to a rich man: “Go and sell all your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in Heaven. Then come, follow Me.” Mark 10:21 NLT

In other words, Jesus was basically telling this young man, ‘become poor and then come and follow Me, be completely dependent on Me and you will experience how I will take care of all your needs!’

That is why Jesus taught: “Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and He will give you everything you need.” Matthew 6:33 NLT

And the apostle Paul wrote this: “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand.” Philippians 4:6-7 NLT

“And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from His glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19

Jesus did not want any of His disciples to be self-sufficient, but for them to trust Him for their daily provision, as Jesus taught them to pray, “Give us this day our daily bread.” Matthew 6:11 NKJV

SYMPTOMS OF A CHURCH IN DECEPTION


You know when you are dealing with a church where, as the Bible says, the pastor cleverly teaches destructive heresies, because the members happily put up with whatever the pastor tells them, even if he preaches a different Jesus, or a different kind of Spirit than the one they received, or a different kind of gospel than the one they believed!  (See 2. Peter 2:1, 2. Corinthians 11:4)

The church members do not follow the example of the believers of Berea in the book of Acts, who were open-minded and searched the Scriptures day after day to see if what the apostles were teaching was indeed the truth. (See Acts 17:11)

It is for this reason that the Bible says that, “Evil people and impostors will flourish. They will deceive others and will themselves be deceived.” 2. Timothy 3:13 NLT

MURDER PLOT AGAINST OUR PRESIDENT? AND SO WHAT?

At one point in Jerusalem, there was a plot by a group of Jews to assassinate the apostle Paul. They bound themselves with an oath not to eat or drink until they had killed Paul (see Acts 23:12-22). 

But it was God’s ultimate intention for Paul to go to Rome and stand trial and not to be killed. That is why God sent an angel when Paul was going through a major storm at sea on his way to Rome, to tell him,

“Don’t be afraid, Paul, for you will surely stand trial before Caesar!” Acts 27:24 NLT

In other words, these Jews could not kill Paul simply because God, who is the author of life and death, did not allow it – pure and simple (see Luke 12:5)!

Now there are some preachers like Rodney Howard-Browne going around saying that there is a credible plot on Capitol Hill to have president Donald Trump assassinated and that we must pray for it not to happen. Really? Did God say that? What’s going on here?  

Relax, you people! The Bible clearly says that, “God controls the course of world events; He removes kings and sets up other kings!” Daniel 2:21 NLT

God brought Donald Trump into the office of the presidency to give America a last chance on redemption! It is no wonder that he is receiving death threats. Nothing strange or new!

I remember that during former president Barack Obama’s reign, several well-known Christian prophets predicted with great certainty that Obama was going to be killed and yet it never happened! Why? Because God did not allow it!

Therefore, it is God who is in control of president Donald Trump or anybody else for that matter! Nothing will happen to him unless He allows it!

Here is what the Lord says about Donald Trump: “I saw you before you were born. Every day of your life was recorded in My book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.” (Taken from Psalm 139:16)

FEARING BEING LONELY FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE?


Being alone can sting a lot, the deep burning pain in your chest when you wake up that never seems to go away. The struggle whether this is the will of God or not for you to be alone for the rest of your life or maybe one day to get married?

The traditional society says, ‘Unless you have a spouse and a family, you can’t possibly be a legitimate person.’ While the modern society says, ‘Unless you have sex and romance and love, you can’t possibly be fulfilled.’

But Christians know that God has a purpose for their lives, whether to be in marriage or to stay single as the apostle Paul taught;

“But I wish everyone were single, just as I am. Yet each person has a special gift from God, of one kind or another.” 1. Corinthians 7:7 NLT

That is why not being married for a Christian believer does not mean something is missing. On the contrary, the Bible says that;

“An unmarried man can spend his time doing the Lord’s work and thinking how to please Him.”

And;

“In the same way, a woman who is no longer married or has never been married can be devoted to the Lord and holy in body and in spirit.” 1. Corinthians 7:32+34 NLT

WHO ARE YOU TO JUDGE?


Countless of times I have heard people, especially Christians, telling me when addressing sinful actions of believers, “Who are you to judge?”

Jesus’ command, “Do not judge others, and you will not be judged” (Matthew 7:1 NLT) could be the most quoted of His sayings and yet so often taken out of context. Many people use this verse in an attempt to silence their critics, interpreting Jesus’ words to mean, “You don’t have the right to tell me I’m wrong.” Christians are often accused of “judging” when they speak out against sin.

The Bible’s command that we “not judge others” doesn’t mean we cannot show discernment. Immediately after Jesus said, “Do not judge others,” He said, “Don’t waste what is holy on people who are unholy. Don’t throw your pearls to pigs!” Matthew 7:6 NLT

Later in the same sermon Jesus says, “Beware of false prophets who come disguised as harmless sheep but are really vicious wolves.  You can identify them by their fruit, that is, by the way they act.” Matthew 7:15-16 NLT

So, how are we supposed to discern those who are “unholy,” “pigs,” and “false prophets” unless we have the ability to make a judgment call on doctrines and actions? Jesus is giving us permission to tell right from wrong.

That’s why He said, “Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment.” John 7:24 NKJV

In other words, there IS a correct usage of judgment which is based on Biblical doctrines and actions of a person.

Now we also understand why the apostle Paul told the Corinthian Church that it is their responsibility to judge those inside the church who are sinning!

“It isn’t my responsibility to judge outsiders, but it certainly is your responsibility to judge those inside the church who are sinning.” 1. Corinthians 5:12 NLT

Therefore, when Jesus said not to judge others, He did not mean that no one is allowed to identify sin for what it is based on God’s definition of sin found in His Word, the Bible!

WHY MOST CHRISTIANS ARE NOT TRUE CHRISTIANS AT ALL


FROM THE “BIBLE NERD”

Jesus Christ said:

“The gateway to life is very narrow and the road is difficult, and only a few ever find it.” Matthew 7:14 NLT

This means that,

“Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did.” 1. John 2:6 NLT

So just like Jesus, you need to be willing to give up your own selfish ways, and just like Jesus, take up your cross and be willing to give up your life for Him, loving Him above anybody or anything else! 

Jesus made this very clear when He said:

“If any of you wants to be My follower, you must give up your own way, take up your cross, and follow Me. If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for My sake, you will save it.” Matthew 16:24-25 NLT

And,

“If you love your father or mother more than you love Me, you are not worthy of being Mine; or if you love your son or daughter more than Me, you are not worthy of being Mine. If you refuse to take up your cross and follow Me, you are not worthy of being Mine!” Matthew 10:37-38 NLT

“Don’t imagine that I came to bring peace to the earth! I came not to bring peace, but a sword. I have come to set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. Your enemies will be right in your own household!” Matthew 10:34-36 NLT

This is the reason why the Christian walk is very narrow and difficult, and many of those so-called Christians are just phony fakes, who are not willing to sacrifice their selfish ways and live in obedience to God’s will!

These so-called Christians are only living to please themselves, and yet the Bible says:

“For even Christ didn’t live to please Himself.” Romans 15:3 NLT

GOD SAYS NO TO THE HOMOSEXUAL LIFESTYLE!



IN THE OLD TESTAMENT BIBLE BOOK, GOD SAID:

“Do not practice homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman. It is a detestable sin.” Leviticus 18:22 NLT

“If a man practices homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman, both men have committed a detestable act.” Leviticus 20:13 NLT

IN THE NEW TESTAMENT, GOD SAYS:

“Even the women turned against the natural way to have sex and instead indulged in sex with each other. And the men, instead of having normal sexual relations with women, burned with lust for each other. Men did shameful things with other men, and as a result of this sin, they suffered within themselves the penalty they deserved.” Romans 1:26-27 NLT

“Don’t you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don’t fool yourselves! Those who practice homosexuality will not inherit the Kingdom of God!” (See 1. Corinthians 6:9-10)

“The law is for people who are sexually immoral, or who practice homosexuality and who do contradict the wholesome teaching that comes from the glorious Good News!”
(See 1. Timothy 1:10-11)

It is for this reason the Scriptures say that:

“God’s will is for you to be holy, so stay away from all sexual sin. Then each of you will control his own body and live in holiness and honor—  not in lustful passion like the pagans who do not know God and His ways.” 1. Thessalonians 4:3-5 NLT

IT IS GOD WHO KNOWS, DECIDES, ALLOWS, DISALLOWS, CONTROLS AND LEADS!


Did Job end up suffering because he brought it upon himself by doing wrong or sinning? Or was it God who allowed Job to suffer for His purpose?

The Bible gives the following answer:

Then the Lord asked Satan, “Have you noticed my servant Job? He is the finest man in all the earth. He is blameless—a man of complete integrity. He fears God and stays away from evil.”

Satan replied to the Lord, “Yes, but Job has good reason to fear God. You have always put a wall of protection around him and his home and his property. You have made him prosper in everything he does. Look how rich he is! But reach out and take away everything he has, and he will surely curse you to your face!”

“All right, you may test him,” the Lord said to Satan. “Do whatever you want with everything he possesses, but don’t harm him physically.” So Satan left the Lord’s presence. Job 1:8-12 NLT

Then the Lord asked Satan, “Have you noticed my servant Job? He is the finest man in all the earth. He is blameless—a man of complete integrity. He fears God and stays away from evil. And he has maintained his integrity, even though you urged me to harm him without cause.”

Satan replied to the Lord, “Skin for skin! A man will give up everything he has to save his life. But reach out and take away his health, and he will surely curse you to your face!”

“All right, do with him as you please,” the Lord said to Satan. “But spare his life.”  So Satan left the Lord’s presence, and he struck Job with terrible boils from head to foot. Job 2:3-7 NLT

So, it is God who allows what will happen to people, whether good or bad!

That is why the Scripture says;

“So it is God who decides to show mercy. We can neither choose it nor work for it. For the Scriptures say that God told Pharaoh, “I have appointed you for the very purpose of displaying my power in you and to spread my fame throughout the earth.” So you see, God chooses to show mercy to some, and he chooses to harden the hearts of others so they refuse to listen.” Romans 9:16-18 NLT

Therefore, it says that, “God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases Him!” Philippians 2:13 NLT

WILD PARTIES, ALCOHOL, DRUGS, SEX, ORGIES, AND THE SORROW THAT FOLLOWS!


“What sorrow awaits you who make your neighbors drunk! You force your cup on them so you can gloat over their shameful nakedness.” Habakkuk 2:15 NLT

“What sorrow for those who get up early in the morning looking for a drink of alcohol and spend long evenings drinking wine to make themselves flaming drunk.” Isaiah 5:11 NLT

“What sorrow for those who are heroes at drinking wine and boast about all the alcohol they can hold.” Isaiah 5:22 NLT

“Come,” they say, “let’s get some wine and have a party. Let’s all get drunk. Then tomorrow we’ll do it again and have an even bigger party!” Isaiah 56:12 NLT

I meant that you are not to associate with anyone who claims to be a believer yet indulges in sexual sin or is a drunkard. Don’t even eat with such people! (See 1. Corinthians 5:11)

Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone who is living the lifestyle of a sexually immoral person or who is a drunkard, or who engages in orgies, abuses drugs, or any other sins like these will not inherit the Kingdom of God! (See Galatians 5:19-21)

So, don’t participate in the darkness of wild parties and drunkenness, or in sexual promiscuity and immoral living! (See Romans 13:13)

“Be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days. Don’t act thoughtlessly, but understand what the Lord wants you to do. Don’t be drunk with wine, because that will ruin your life. Instead, be filled with the Holy Spirit!” Ephesians 5:15-18 NLT

ARE WE OBLIGATED TO PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM?


There are many well-meaning Christians who say that we as believers are obligated to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. They use the Old Testament book of Psalms to justify this, where it says: “Pray for peace in Jerusalem. May all who love this city prosper.” Psalm 122:6 NLT

But, is this really so?

For decades, Christians have been praying for the peace of Jerusalem, and yet, there is still no peace today in Jerusalem. Far from it! Instead, great civil unrest exists in Jerusalem among Jews, Christians, Muslims, Arabs, and Palestinians.

The Bible though speaks about a day that is coming when there will be peace in Jerusalem. This will be orchestrated by the Antichrist, the false Messiah. He will bring a false peace treaty to Israel and the Middle East. You can read this in the book of Daniel and 1. Thessalonians where it speaks about the Antichrist bringing peace.

And in his place shall arise a vile person, to whom they will not give the honor of royalty; but he shall come in peaceably, and seize the kingdom by intrigue. Daniel 11:21 NKJV

Now concerning how and when all this will happen, dear brothers and sisters, we don’t really need to write you.  For you know quite well that the day of the Lord’s return will come unexpectedly, like a thief in the night.  When people are saying, “Everything is peaceful and secure,” then disaster will fall on them as suddenly as a pregnant woman’s labor pains begin. And there will be no escape. 1 Thessalonians 5:1-3 NLT

Jesus Christ will return! He is not coming to establish Israel’s earthly kingdom. Jesus is forming the Church, His Body, to influence the heavenly places:

God’s purpose in all this was to use the church to display His wisdom in its rich variety to all the unseen rulers and authorities in the heavenly places. This was His eternal plan, which He carried out through Christ Jesus our Lord.”  Ephesians 3:10-11 NLT

Never once did Jesus, nor the apostle Paul or the other disciples in the New Testament, instruct us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Why? Because that is not what God, through the Holy Spirit is doing today!

As a matter of fact, the apostle Paul urge us to pray for all people and ask God to help them, to intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them! He also says to pray this way for kings and all who are in authority, so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity, because this is good and pleases God our Savior, who wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth! (See 1 Timothy 2:1-4)

To make it clear what the Bible says what will happen in last days, is that the Antichrist, the false messiah, will come first, followed by the true Messiah, Jesus Christ, who will reign over the holy city, the New Jerusalem coming down from God out of Heaven, the city of peace where righteousness lives for eternity with those who belong to Him! (See Revelation 21+22)
