Skip to comments.John MacArthur: World 'perfectly suited for the Antichrist to come' amid COVID-19 chaos

Grace Community Church Pastor John MacArthur has warned that today’s world is “perfectly suited for the Antichrist to come” amid the chaos and “lawlessness” stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic.
MacArthur, whose Sun Valley, California-based church has repeatedly sparred with authorities over COVID-19 worship restrictions, said on Sunday that world governments “have done something that's never been done in human history” by making the pandemic issue and the response “global.”
“Now we are a global world. And that is a setup that we've been waiting for through redemptive history since the Lord promised that there would come, in the future, an Antichrist who would have a global government,” the 81-year-old pastor said.
“We literally have such power over people globally that we can shut them down so they can't function,” he said.
“This suits the world of Antichrist. As you look at the book of Revelation, there's the mark of the beast, the number, and if you don't have that, you don't buy, you don't sell, you don't exist. Everything about you, they know — the people who have access to all your data. They know all of it. You can go out of existence virtually any moment [and] somebody decides that. This is the kind of world that appears to be perfectly suited for the Antichrist to come, bring a certain amount of peace, [and] the world falls at his feet.”

End Times Ping
We’re getting closer and closer to the fulfillment of some nasty stuff happening in this world and John MacArthur is right on about it.
If you love somebody, tell them about Jesus and His Saving Mercy & Grace.
PM me if you wish to be added or removed from the End Times Ping List.
The world also has the technology to ruthlessly enforce compliance.
There is almost literally no place to hide these days.
Back in the 1980’s during the end times discussions, tracking through cell phone technology was not even considered. Drones were a thing of science fiction. I don’t know where heat seeking stuff and infrared technology was but even that has no doubt improved greatly.
The military has demonstrated frightening capabilities based on what we’ve seen when the terrorist leaders have been hunted down and taken out.
People seem to be embracing evil at a rate almost unheard of and genetic engineering could allow for much of the plagues in Revelation. Yes, they could just straight out be supernatural, but God also uses men to do stuff and John could only describe what he saw, now it’s source.
All we can do as believers at this point is trust that God, who determined when and where each of us should live, knew that we’d be facing these times and equipped us to deal with it.
The Anti-Pope is also with us.
“...since the Lord promised that there would come, in the future, an Antichrist who would have a global government,” the 81-year-old pastor said.”
Notice that he did not cite scripture and verse, because no such promise was made by the Lord.
Now, one could make the argument that the anti-christ was already in control of global government. During Christ’s temptation, Satan offered the kingdoms of the world, which were all in his possession, to Christ if He would worship him. Jesus did not dispute the assertion. If it had been a lie, it would not have been a temptation.
The decadent you will always have with you. As it was in the days of Noah.
LOTS of people are coming to Christ these days that otherwise might not have.
Jesus is as He always was - the way, the truth, and the life.
Not worried about the Anti-Christ......
We have real issues with the Democratic (Communist) Party taking charge of the US Government.....
Nah - Harris would be the one to fill those shoes.
It is as though the Lord has hardened their hearts, blinded their eyes, and made heavy their ears.
I normally say that things will get much wore before we can keep vigil for the end times - but the super fast deterioration and the boldness of the EVIL has me thinking they are a lot closer than I ever imagined.
Christ mass has been debunked. Stay in LOCKDOWN says the soulless PSYCHOPATHS. No festivities allowed. The government gods will be preying on you.
Remeber texas? Remember the alamo? Remember piss christ?
to understand that is to acknowledge there is no United States in the book of Revelation...
“And yes, it [the Great Reset] will happen,” Kerry continued. “And I think it will happen with greater speed and with greater intensity than a lot of people might imagine. In effect, the citizens of the United States have just done a Great Reset.
