happened in an educated, traditionally Protestant America. It will happen in
less educated Russia. It will take place in the whole world. The present Pope
prepares the road for the Antichrist.
Satan through the Antichrist will show the same miracles, which Jesus showed.
Blind will see, lame will run. It is not enough; he will even resurrect the
dead! By this he will deceive many people. However not only Jesus resurrected
people, but also the prophet Elisha (2King.4:32-36), Paul (Acts 20:10) and Peter
(Acts 9:39). Magicians of Egyptian pharaoh could do the same miracles, which
Moses with God’s help did (Ex.7:10-22). The Bible says that by the power of
Beelzebub it is possible to do various miracles (Luke.11:15). The main thing,
which is necessary to remember is that Jesus will not come until all the seven
trumpets of the Revelation blow; and also - Jesus will not descend to the
ground: we shall see Him in clouds (Luke.21:27, Acts.1:11), and He will meet us
in the sky (1Thes.4:16), whereas Antichrist can and will inspire us that he had
descended from the sky, but we won't see him in clouds. If, of course, he will
use some holographic technology for this purpose. I believe, that we will be
able to notice the forgery.
We should believe our Father anyway. He will always help, because He loves us. Jesus said: «At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you: For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.» (John 16:26). When the satan with all demons will be in flesh, at first they will try to win our trust, and later will begin to destroy people, and only one weapon we shall have against them: «This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting» (Mark 9:29)* .
The Satan will try to enter people into that sin, with which his deviation began: a pride. A pride is the most dangerous sin conducting to the aspiration to become the god. And since there is one God, there is no place for other gods in the heaven. «God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble» (1Pet.5:5), «For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted» (Luke.14:11).
humility is proportional to the size of God inside of us. If we think little of
God, or believe, that He can not direct our life, that we can do without him,
God inside us is very small. But, when we put God in the appropriate prospect,
our pride and self-conceit will begin to fall, and God inside us will begin to
grow. The humility does not mean the loss of self-respect, does not mean that
God wants us to be robots not having the opinions and expecting orders from
above for everything. The humility is understanding, that His ways are right;
this is our deep desire to follow His desires; it is the belief in His ability
to direct us. It is an infinite process of growing, and not fall.
Humility is the most valuable quality of the man in the eyes of the God. Due to humility Noah and his family were rescued from the Flood, due to humility Abraham became the ancestor of holy people, due to humility Moses spoke with God, and Mary became the mother of Jesus. No matter how talented the man is, but if he has no humility, God will not take the advantage of his talent. He will prefer an untalented, but humiliated by the spirit and will give him talent to execute His work (James 1:5). Dear mine, entrust to God your life and let Him use it for His glory. You will never regret it.
