THE FIRST RIDER
By Rev. Adauto Rezende
How will he rule the world?
I will list below, important details that will lead the world to worship the most evil person ever lived on this planet. His world domination will take place:
1. In a godless society
The beast during his 42-month rule will have all mechanisms and agents in his favor to establish the most powerful and wicked kingdom ever seen in human history. Bellow, I will point out the major factors that will give him the power to control humanity.
After the first 3 ½ years had passed. The Antichrist will break his covenant with Israel. He will persecute and kill some of God’s people, including the two prophets and will be free to rule in the last 3 ½ years. God spoke to the world for 42 months, but they didn’t repent. Therefore, they will get the trinity they had chosen: Satan, the antichrist and the false prophet. Like in the days of Noah, humanity will be abandoned and give over to their own wicked desires. According to Paul, the Holy Spirit will no longer act on earth:
“For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. 8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, “ II Thessalonians 2: 7-8
“And the Lord said, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; The Lord saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time.” Genesis 6: 5
2. With the highest knowledge:
a) Technologically advanced world:
Currently, a global industry consisting of hundreds of companies develops and sells surveillance technology to government agencies around the world. Together, these companies sell a range of systems used to find, track, and check people and their communications for spying and policing purposes. The advanced powers available to the best-equipped spy agencies in the world are being traded around the globe. The Antichrist will have in his disposition all types of surveillance technology – Phone and internet monitoring, audio and video surveillance, biometrics, and so on to watch and to control humankind. It is happening right now.
“It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, 17 so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666.” Revelation 13: 16-18
b) Medically and scientifically advanced:
The greatest dream of every magnate on this planet was and still is to find a way to stay alive. The late famous movie-stars, multi-millionaires CEOs, politicians and pop-singers would give all their fortunes to get just a few more years on earth. In our days, the Tycoons are investing much of their money in medical scientific resources. It is unbelievable how far they are heading with such as “Frankenstein Doctor” experimental ambitions. Words like real-life cyborgs, exoskeleton, radio-frequency-identification (RFID) technology, vocal biomarkers, human organs-on-chips, and so on are the new vocabulary in scientific magazines. Read the following paragraph from the medical futurist: “As technologies transform every aspect of healthcare, medicine and the pharmaceutical industry, the monstrous clinical trial enterprise cannot be left out either. One way to modernize the drug testing process is applying technologies to the traditional framework, for example through online platforms to seek participants; while an alternative way is to build a completely new setting that represents the second approach. Researchers of the Wyss Institute have been working on the first strand, human organs-on-chips for years. These Microdevices lined by living human cells can mimic the microarchitecture and functions of human organs, and this makes them ideal for replacing clinical testing.”
The idea of a cyborg (organic and bio-Mechatronic body parts) it might be part of the antichrist scientific achievement. Read the following Scripture:
“And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. 15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak...” Revelation 13: 14-15
3. With extreme ecological zeal
Apparently, the antichrist will improve considerably the global environment. Later I will explain my reasons. It is important to mention that we should care for the environment. God told Adam and Eve to take care of the Garden. The Torah has much to teach about the care of nature. However, between the planet and man, God had chosen to save the latter.
In our modern Godless Society, the slogan is: "save the planet". Although to carry out it, they have to cut the world population2. How could they achieve this objective? What methodologies are they using?
a) Killing countless unborn and sometimes newborn babies in abortion clinics,
b) Promoting same-sex marriage,
c) Combating against human conception through millions of male / female sterilization,
d) Violently opposing Christian precepts and values through the mainstream media,
e) Inserting thousands of dollars in LGBT groups, spreading sodomy in all areas of society (including pre-schooling).
Above are some of the mechanisms of these powerful ones paving the way for the arrival of the Antichrist.
These pro-nature activists will see their dreams come true. The Beast will endorse them in his government. Imagine for a moment: the false messiah spending billions in the environment, with the leaders of the first world, offering to him and to his "pro-nature" project all their support. The Hollywood's pro-environment and anti-God stars joining the mainstream, politically correct, fake media to defend and worship the “savior” of the planet. With worldwide media in his hand, the Antichrist will spread his lies related to the environment. Among them, deceptions such as: “The best index of air quality ever seen in the world,” “fossil fuel almost extinct,” “astonishing increase in basic sanitation in the cities of the world,”, “Our seas and rivers are coming back to life,” “Pollution on the planet has been defeated.”
There will also be an abundance of food on the planet. Probably, it will be through an increase in agriculture, and austere birth control through the incredible worldwide explosion of homosexuality, among other factors mentioned above. Also, considering the rapture of the church, all this will cause a considerable decrease in the Earth’s population.
I can imagine all the world tycoons listening to Antichrist’s speech on global environmental preservation. They will celebrate their victory over the Christian fanatics. There will be just one political party, one religion and one leader: The Beast. They will build their Babel’s empire in a short time. Most likely they will say: “we fix the world.” “We are living in paradise.” “Our ‘God’ is with us.” "The pro-life, homophobic Christians are no longer in our way."
4. With constant anti-God propaganda:
With the help of technology, the beast will exceed hundreds of times the communist atheistic propaganda, to spread his godless agenda to the world.
John wrote in the first century AD: “This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.” I John 4: 3. As the apostle stated, history has been revealed many personifications of the beast in the world. In the past two hundred years, Karl Max and Friedrich Nietzsche spread their atheistic propaganda such as God is dead and religion the opium of the people. Their writings inspired butchers like Lenin, Stalin and Mao Zedong, who introduced the new indoctrination: state atheism, which cost the extermination of more than one hundred million in Russia and in China. Lenin said, “The philosophical basis of Marxism, as Marx and Engels repeatedly declared, is dialectical materialism—a materialism which is absolutely atheistic and positively hostile to all religion…Marxism is materialism. As such, it is as relentlessly hostile to religion… We must combat religion—that is the ABC of all materialism, and so of Marxism. But Marxism is not a materialism which has stopped at the ABC. Marxism goes further. It says: We must know how to combat religion. This combat must be waged in order to reverse the religion’s hold on the “backward sections of the town proletariat”—that is, the town idiots.”3
The people I mentioned above are prototypes of the antichrist. These individuals have received some of the demonic power and, through their evil deeds; we can imagine what the true antichrist will do when he receives full authority from the devil.
"He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, Shall persecute the saints of the Most High, And shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand. For a time and times and half a time." Daniel 7: 25
“The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise its authority for forty-two months. It opened its mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven.” Revelation 13: 5-6
It ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed.” Revelation 13: 14-15
Let’s move on for our next inquire: What will happen to the antichrist’s kingdom?
To Him all the glory!
2. Michael Moore shows in his new film “Planet of Humans” the new recipe to save the planet:
The film calls for environmentalists and viewers to throw their full attention towards issues like population control and economic regression in order to effectively combat climate change. Of course, this is not just an ideological way of control, but it is in full progress. As I pointed it how these people are working to accomplish their task: Kill millions on abortion clinic, promote homosexuality and sterilization.
3. According to R. J. Rummel's book Death by Government (1994), about 110 million people, foreign and domestic, were killed by communist democide from 1900 to 1987. In 1993, Rummel wrote: "Even were we to have total access to all communist archives, we still would not be able to calculate precisely how many the communists murdered. Consider that even in spite of the archival statistics and detailed reports of survivors, the best experts still disagree by over 40 percent on the total number of Jews killed by the Nazis. We cannot expect this accuracy for the victims of communism. We can, however, get a probable order of magnitude and a relative approximation of these deaths within a most likely range". Due to additional information about Mao's culpability in the Great Chinese Famine from the work of Jung Chang and Jon Halliday, in late 2005 Rummel revised upward, his total for communist democide between 1900 and 1999 to about 148 million, using their estimate of 38 million famine deaths Rummel, Rudolph Joseph (December 1, 2005), "Stalin Exceeded Hitler in Monstrous Evil; Mao Beat Out Stalin", Hawaii Reporter, archived from the original on September 17, 2009 Rummel, Rudolph Joseph (2007), China's Bloody Century: Genocide and Mass Murder Since 1900, Transaction Publishers, ISBN 978-1-4128-0670-1- Rummel, Rudolph Joseph (2017), Lethal Politics: Soviet Genocide and Mass Murder Since 1917, Routledge, ISBN 9781351508872
