On the subject of The Antichrist, I think most people are looking for a really bad guy. I know I was doing that for awhile, not always actively but if I was to give this topic some thought that was the type of person that I would think of. People like George Soros do come to mind, those who are definitely antichrist, not at all Christ-like. Then when I gave some thought to what Archbishop Fulton Sheen stated, "The Antichrist will not be so called; otherwise he would have no followers" and I thought about what the Jews are waiting for, then I changed my mind. Now, I agree with what earthtoangels has stated, more or less. I think that he will "arrive" on the scene after the devastation of war and he will offer a path to peace or at the very least offer to help maintain a new peace. The Jews are expecting their messiah to bring peace, Isaiah 2:4(DRA) And he [the Lord] shall judge the Gentiles, and rebuke many people: and they shall turn their swords into ploughshares, and their spears into sickles: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they be exercised any more to war. When the Jews receive their messiah he will be the false messiah, the future Antichrist, John 5:43(DRA) I am come in the name of my Father, and you receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him you will receive. I have also thought about what Dolours has stated in regards to the conversion of the Jews which should occur before "the man of sin" is revealed. I believe that a mass conversion of the Jews will occur after a large war in the Middle East, Ezekiel 38-39 as a result of the Warning. I think that the Warning will occur at the end of this war and maybe the following verse could be speaking of the moment of the Warning, Ezekiel 39:7 (DRA) And I will make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel, and my holy name shall be profaned no more: and the Gentiles shall know that I am the Lord, the Holy One of Israel. If you read the next verse from this scripture it does appear to speak of the conversion of the Jews at the end of this war. I don't think that God is talking about the victors eating the flesh and drinking the blood of Gog and all his multitude, in addition, this scripture states that they will be burying them for seven months. I believe that the great victim spoken of in this scripture is Jesus Christ who died on the cross for the salvation of all mankind. I think that this is a reference of the Jews' conversion to Catholicism. Ezekiel 39:17 (DRA) ...Assemble yourselves, make haste, come together from every side to my victim, which I slay for you, a great victim upon the mountains of Israel: to eat flesh, and drink blood. Their false messiah will "appear" sometime after this war. He will either help bring peace back or he will help maintain a new peace. Mankind will live in peace for awhile but at some time in the future this man of peace will offer solutions to man's problems that will not be in accordance with the Faith. Some people will not want to go along with his "solutions" and at this time he will be revealed as The Antichrist, the man of sin. The above, of course, are my thoughts. This is what makes sense to me, it lines up with many, many approved prophecies from Our Lady which include a minor chastisement in the form of war and revolution, an era/period of peace, and then a Chastisement directly from God which includes the destruction of The Antichrist, etc.
