It May Not Be the Antichrist Yet, But It is Getting Close!

April 11, 2021

Scriptural and natural truth is coming at you right now that will change your perspective on what is going on in the earth. If anything sounds like rhetoric to you then read to the end and see the many links to information that proves what I am telling you. I am not imagining anything or coming up with things out of the air. There is solid, factual evidence, and you will find it at the end of this article.

Covid-19 was never as bad as espoused by the lying news media because it has a 99% survivability rate! The only vulnerable population were the people over 80 and those with underlying health issues. What Covid-19 did was to provide an open door to huge overreaching by the government, and to restrictions that took away our rights as American citizens. Of course, as bad as it is in America, it is much worse in other countries of the world. Totalitarian, fascist, and socialist government dreams and aspirations received a great push forward through the so-called pandemic. A one-world government takeover received an immense boost through the vehicle of a planned false pandemic.

To top it all off, many churches and ministers capitulated to forced closures. Many churches closed without so much as a whimper of disapproval or resistance. Good little sheep that they are! Many are still closed.

What are we seeing in all this? What is beginning to show its ugly head on the earth? You call yourself a Christian and can’t see it? Are you that blind and hard-hearted? May this message bust it open for you!

Now we request you, brethren, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, that you not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God. Do you not remember that while I was still with you, I was telling you these things? And you know what restrains him now, so that in his time he will be revealed. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way. Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming; that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders, 10 and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. 11 For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, 12 in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness. (2 Thessalonians 2:1-12 NASB)

The antichrist man that opposes everything of God and His Word, the one that will force a one world government and religion isn’t supposed to be able to show his ugly head until the true and real Church is removed from the earth. Though that is true, we are seeing the antichrist spirit demonstrating great deception in the earth. Covid-19 is the tip of a humongous iceberg of lies and deceptions that has spread into all the earth. The worst part of it is that Satan has used the Covid mess to stop the church, restrict evangelism, impede laying hands on the sick, stop the preaching of the gospel message, stop having altar calls, and so on. That is the biggest lie he successfully spread into most parts of the world, and pastors, ministers, congregants, and entire denominations ate it up!

Could this be a part of the great apostasy prophesied above in Paul's words? Could this be that falling away from the faith? Could this be the beginning of these churches and ministers believing a lie and conforming to an antichrist system? It has all the trimmings, earmarks, and the massive signage that it is! It's like having the words "Great Apostasy" up in lights as the churches shut down all over the world contrary to the Word of God. You talk about "a deluding influence so that many will believe what is false" (a lie)! This is either that great apostasy or for sure the beginning of it showing up on the world's stage of events because the entire Church was affected by it. Nothing like that has ever happened.

The rest of Satan's plan is well under way with his attempt to remove human rights, make people subservient to governmental orders, shut down small businesses, restrict people’s movement and travel, and bring people to their knees before a tyrannical false god called Covid-19.

Don’t you get what Satan is trying to implement even now? Are we to ignore what is going on because it is too negative to contemplate and just focus on "good stuff" and the presence of God? My Bible tells me this:

So that we may not be exploited by Satan (for we are not ignorant of his schemes). (2 Corinthians 2:13 NET)

The messages of many ministers online in this crucial time in history are about, for example, "7 steps to a better you" and "Why I lost my mojo"! That is not far from some of the stupid and irrelevant titles to messages you can hear a-dime-a-dozen on the net. It's amazingly stupid stuff that has no bearing on the nature of the hour. It's like many ministers are sticking their fingers in their ears refusing to look at this mess directly in the face for what it is, and recognize the enemy's hand in all these things. They are ignorant of Satan's devices and he is eating them for lunch! They are not standing AGAINST the wiles or schemes of the enemy at all, but instead, they they are acting like they are blind and deaf to the devil's lies. They don't know their enemy and it is costing them dearly! If you are not aware of Satan's tactics, guess what will happen? You will be outflanked and exploited by Satan. 

Clothe yourselves with the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. (Ephesians 6:11 NET)

The devil is trying to fast-track the beast governmental system of the antichrist and we, the true church, need to stand up and restrain him!

16 And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, 17 and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name. (Revelation 13:16, 17 NASB)

That you can't buy or sell should be disgustingly obvious with all the mask mandates and restrictions. There are many restaurants, stores, shops, grocery stores, government offices, etc. refusing to give you service without a mask!

Any way you slice and dice it, COVID-19 mandates came because of darkness growing in the land. They are not here because of faith, repentance, prayer, and DOING the Scripture. The mandates found an entrance because of a lack of the Church being doers of the Word! (James 1:22) If all the churches would have taken a stand against the lies of the devil and refused to close, America and other countries would not have suffered all the mess of lockdowns, curfews, social distancing, useless masks, and the rest of the perverted mess!

Watch as some of the churches begin opening. Their congregations will be gone or greatly decreased and never return. Church buildings are already going up for sale all over the country.

Remember all the churches that closed when the Covid mess started? Did you know churches are opening up as vaccination centers? They subjected themselves to a lie and a huge deception with masks, social distancing, and much more, and now they are serving as death and injury distribution centers. Death camps?

Church, it is time to repent! America, it’s time to repent! It is time to humble ourselves, pray, seek to please the Lord, repudiate any sinful practices and heresies so the Lord will respond from heaven, forgive our sins, and heal our land, yes, even from the tyrannical and totalitarian socialists and false pandemics! (2 Chronicles 7:13, 14)

All the churches and pastors in the land that surrendered to the antichrist demands of government need to repent for closing their churches! They received and implemented government orders that were contrary to Scripture.

Nowhere in the New Testament are we told to shut down our churches when the government decides we should. It tells us the exact opposite!

Not forsaking or neglecting to assemble together [as believers], as is the habit of some people, but admonishing (warning, urging, and encouraging) one another, and all the more faithfully as you see the day approaching. (Hebrews 10:25 AMPC)

The Church of the Lord Jesus also has a GREAT commission that didn't expire with the so-called pandemic, or better stated, “lying plandemic.” (Mark 16:15-19; Matthew 28:18, 19) Most churches shut down operations without so much as a whimper. Why? Because most were not following the Scripture and obeying it. They were dead or close to dead anyway so it was natural to cave and bow the knee. 

What really shocked me was how most evangelical, word-of-faith, prophetic, Pentecostal, and independent Spirit-filled churches shut down immediately upon orders from their local government. I am not including here the dead denominational churches. They all closed. I am referring here to all the supposedly Bible-believing and Word-doing churches. I am specifically referring to all the churches that said they believed in God’s healing power and espoused the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and speaking in other tongues as part of their church doctrine! What happened to the following Biblical instructions  concerning healing when churches closed?

14 Is anyone among you ill? He should summon the elders of the church, and they should pray for him and anoint him with olive oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick and the Lord will raise him up—and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. 16 So confess your sins to one another and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great effectiveness. (James 5:14-16 NET)

You can’t anoint anybody via internet, and you can’t lay hands on them for healing either!

“In my Name (Jesus)… they will lay hands on the sick and they will recover!” (Mark 16:17, 18)

Water baptism of new believers and participating in the Lord’s Supper or communion cannot be done via video conference! (Matthew 28:19; 1 Corinthians 11:25-31)

Most churches capitulated, submitted to, surrendered, and agreed with local authorities instead of agreeing with God and His Word! “We must obey God rather than people!” was how the Church leaders in Acts responded to calls from governmental leaders (those in authority) to stop what they were doing in the Name of Jesus. (See Acts 5:29, and Acts 4:19.)

We follow the laws of the land UNTIL they violate the Scripture! Then, we follow God’s Word regardless of the consequences. That is DIVINE order! That is the way it is supposed to be for the church!

The church in America (and around the world), almost unanimously, demonstrated how weak, pusillanimous, and sissified they really were. Instead of being the triumphant church, churches were generally a bunch of wusses. Instead of suffering persecution and jail time if necessary, they took the route of disobedience to God. 

As I stated in the previous article, there were a few exceptions in the United States, and a few pastors were arrested, fined, or jailed for refusing to bow down to the idol of Covid-19, but they were regrettably VERY few and far between.

Yes, I will state the following things again from my previous comments. It is too important.

For a couple of years before the “pandemic”, I assisted a well-known Word-of-Faith church. I won’t mention their name or location because I still hope that the pastor and church repent publicly. They need to. I had great respect for their ministry. When the so-called pandemic hit, they folded like a deck of cards and shut their doors just like all other sissified churches. I was shocked and despaired temporarily. I couldn’t believe it. That church preached Scripture every Sunday and Friday, but when the test came, they fell for the lies of the devil like every other church in the area. I am talking about a church that had miracles, signs, and many manifestations of the Holy Spirit. They believed in God's healing power and taught it profusely, but they capitulated to government mania over a so-called pandemic just like all other churches did. What a tragedy! Sadly, even after they opened, they opened to masks with all the trimmings of believing a lie, in things like social distancing, alcohol wipes, and disinfecting agents. As far as I’m concerned, they are still closed because they are still under bondage to the lies of the enemy. Where is that mighty church that believed and taught God's healing and miraculous power? They are gone UNLESS they repent! They will be with little to no anointing unless they repent. I left that church and won't go back not even for a visit, UNLESS they repent.

The only two churches that remained open in my area in Florida were the River Church in Tampa with pastor Rodney Howard Browne (https://www.revival.com), and the Foundation Church in Englewood (https://www.foundationchurchfl.com) with pastor Tom Laipply. They didn't just talk the talk but walked the walk! I truly admire these men of God. Pastor Rodney Howard Browne was arrested for a refusal to close his church. Much of what I am saying and writing here are things these ministers have mentioned or spoken about at some point since March of 2020. I am thankful to God for these ministries sharing the truth of God's Word and the truth about Covid, socialism, and bad government. The links and other comments come from my own research. 

Don’t miss a single Sunday service and the rebroadcasts of the River church (revival.com) or the Foundation Church, and the Tom Laipply podcast! The River has live services every night but Saturday. Get these services and listen to them closely.

By the way, no leader from the River Church or The Foundation Church has ever authorized me to state these things or to "advertise for them." It's certainly not name dropping because I don't have a personal friendship with either of these pastors, nor am I seeking one. It's what the Lord has put in my heart. It is doing my part to get the word out to you for your benefit.

Listen to the Tom Laipply podcast through Apple podcasts, Rumble, and others. Pastor Laipply is powerful in the Word and has a clear handle on all the lies being perpetrated in the government and so on. Powerful stuff, and he doesn’t mince words! If you are the emotional and sensitive type, you will not like him. You were probably from the group of idiot Christians that voted for the demonrat party and all its baby butchering candidates! At one to two million abortions (murders) per year in the USA, that is genocide! They are baby butchers! Sensitive "Christians" thought Trump was too harsh and mean so they voted for demon-inspired murderers and their leaders Joe Biden and Kamala Harris! Good job Covid caving Christians, pastors, and leaders! 

If you love the truth, you will love Pastor Laipply’s fiery teaching every Sunday and his no B.S. podcasts!





Redundancy is necessary for his podcast because it has been banned on some social media sites.

Facebook, Twitter, Google, and YouTube are controlled by a socialist agenda that restricts and bans freedom of speech. They deny our Constitutional right according to the First Amendment that guarantees all Americans freedom of speech! That each one of their platforms censor conservatives and Christians is not even in dispute anymore. The oligarchs of technology don't want us to question their devil inspired narrative. They want us to conform to the mainstream media’s talking points and the lying government narrative, or they will censor you or ban you if you state anything to the contrary. We refuse to bow down to their false god of lies and deception, and we will not conform to their world view! We will not conform to this world but we will be transformed by the renewing of our minds to the truth! (Romans 12:2)

Frankly, I will not go to or visit CCC’s (coined by Tom Laipply), "Covid Caving Churches"! Guess where I go to church now? Guess where I send my tithes and offerings? These two churches and these two alone! No others need apply! "Forget the capitulating churches pastored by skinny jeans, latte sucking, boot licking, Covid-caving pastors, UNLESS they repent!" Thank you, pastor Laipply, for the visual with those reality-based words! If you go back into churches like that after they weakly open back up with all the trimmings of believing a lie, I pray you will not be lost and go to hell, because you will be one of those that bow down to Satan's mark of the beast whenever it shows up. You are already training fervently for the mark of the beast if you wear masks, social distance, submit to tyrannical government Covid-19 shut down policies, and their insistence on vaccinations!

As a side note, Pastor RHB published two books that address the Covid and socialist mess the country finds itself in. I suggest you get every one of his books and read them, particularly The Phantom Virus and Socialism under the Microscope. Go here: https://store.revival.com

All the Covid-caving Christians need to repent! Pastors that yielded to the lying, antichrist, anti-Great Commission, and unconstitutional government demands, need to repent for their heretical actions! They need to repent for submitting to government idolatry and allowing them to rise above the orders and commands of the Lord Jesus in Scripture! I heard pastor Tom Laipply say something to this effect first, and it is the absolute truth!

Don't think for a moment that you closed your church publicly in disobedience to God's Word, and that now you are going to open without public repentance because it will not work. You closed publicly and declared government as your Lord by obeying it instead of obeying the Bible, and now you must repent publicly to gain your footing and place back in God and the anointing. The humble get this. The proud will refuse to repent to their own demise. 

To help with repentance, I again give you the following list of my short studies on repentance. It is time to face the truth and repent. God gives grace to the humble but resists the proud that refuse to repent of their sins! See 1 Peter 5:5, Proverbs 28:13, and 1 John 1:7-10. I've gone to these Scriptures when I've sinned and received forgiveness and cleansing by the Blood of Jesus. The time for repentance is now!












What you need to know about Covid-19 government mandates on masks, social distancing, quarantines, vaccines, vaccine passports, closures, curfews, blah, blah, blah:  

Canadian doctors and medical professionals reject the closures, lockdowns, quarantines, and masks:


At the end of the article, listen to the 11-minute video presentation.

Doctors from other countries speak out:


Mask mandates:

Medical studies on the use of masks reveal a few shocking things:

*Masks are useless at stopping viruses from infecting a person wearing one, and from stopping the virus from escaping the mask if someone is infected. Keep in mind the fact that ALL viruses are much smaller than the microscopic openings in the material used for masks. "It's like using a chain link fence to keep out mosquitos!" I heard someone else say that, but I don't remember who it was or I would give them credit because it really gives you a mental picture of what I am saying here.

*Masks hinder the intake of air for breathing (up to 30%) and hinder the exhaling of carbon dioxide into the air. That means that what you are rebreathing under the mask is partly carbon dioxide (a waste product that is unbreathable) and not the air you need to live! That contributes to the diminished function of a lot of internal organs!

There is evidence that surgeons have decreased mental acuity after 4-6 hours in the operating room after using a surgical mask. The real losers here are the little children being forced to wear masks for hours a day. What do you think oxygen deprivation together with carbon dioxide inhalation is doing to their developing brains and internal organs? It is criminal.

*Studies indicate that continual use of masks will have a detrimental effect on the immune system and will contribute to infections in the gums and lungs. Look at this article:





You better examine these articles by medical professionals and get the real news about the dangers of wearing face masks! The media, Dr. Fauci and the governments of the world are lying to the public and causing severe harm!

Dr. Lee Merritt on the falsehoods of masks:


A surgeon speaks out on the falsehood of the general population wearing masks:


Penile shrinkage because of mask usage:


Men, masking up is death to your manhood! Take off that stinking mask!

Interviews with Dr. Richard Urso:



The medical profession is slowly but surely revolting against all the lies of Covid-19, and they are coming from different countries around the world. 

In some countries, and in some local socialist governments (NYC and others), they are implementing an ID card to prove you have been vaccinated or you can’t go into a business or eat at a restaurant. That is just like wearing the emblem of the beast!

The same has been done with mask wearing. This past week, I tried to get my little boys ice cream at two different shops on Treasure Island (next to St Petersburg Beach) and they would not serve me without a mask! Did I yield? No way! I went through a Chick-Fil-A drive through and got each one of my boys an Ice-Dream! Haha! Trust me, it’s not an advertisement. Chick-Fil-A closed in store service and tripled up on their drive-thru operation. They also capitulated!  

“May no man eat fruit of you hereafter forever?” Mark 11 anyone? That may have been Jesus’s attitude and words to a non-productive ice cream shop, I mean, fig tree. Hmm!

Nazi-like measures similar to those used against Jews in Germany are in place! Jews were forced to identify their businesses with a special emblem (a star) so Germans faithful to the Third Reich would not buy from them or sell them anything.

In many places you can’t buy or sell unless you have on a mask, and still, churches don't get it and try to defend their closure actions and their "bowing the knee" to lies and the father of lies, the devil!

At a SunBank/Truist bank, I was told that to come into their lobby to open an account, I had to wear a mask! Do you know that many states have laws on their books that prohibit wearing a face mask inside a bank and most businesses? It wasn’t that long ago that if you wore a mask inside a bank, you were considered a criminal trying to rob the bank! I refused to wear a mask in their bank, so, I couldn’t open the account there personally, though I found out you can do it online. 

Food, money, grocery stores, government buildings, and what else is coming? If that doesn’t sound like preparation for the antichrist's one-world government in training, then I don’t know what would!

Saint reading this, are you still yawning and sleeping?

Vaccination, forced vaccinations, vaccination passports:

These are all signs of the times where the antichrist system is being pushed to set things up for the still future man of sin or lawlessness. This is not funny! Listen to what Bill Gates is doing NOW in Africa with injections  from this medical doctor:


Article and 55 minute interview with Dr. Kaufman:


Look at this false reporting by the CDC and the complicit news media and as this author rips it apart: 



Frankly, you should read all the articles written by medical professionals and skilled researchers on the so called Covid-19 "vaccines" at globalresearch.ca. Educate yourself so you are not fooled!

8 ways that the mRNA vaccine can kill you by Dr. Sherri Tenpenny:


Here's one from Doctors for Covid Ethics:


Vaccines can modify DNA permanently and contribute to Mad Cow Disease like symptoms and illnesses in humans:





Dr. Steven Hotze reveals that Covid-19 "vaccines" should be called what they are, an EXPERIMENTAL GENE THERAPY! They are dangerous, to say the least. They don't even qualify to be called a "vaccine", according to the CDC's own definition of the word "vaccine." This is a very informative video. The video was transcribed so you can also read the information on the same page.


More than 52,000 medical professionals worldwide have signed the Great Barrington Declaration at https://gbdeclaration.org/ calling into question the draconian Covid 19 policies, procedures, and vaccinations:


Israel’s “vaccination passport” and the violation of the Nuremberg Code:


Chananya Weissman: 31 Reasons Why I Won’t Take the VaccineSome points have to do specifically with what is going on in Israel, but we see the same nonsense in the U. S. A.

New York Teachers for Choice:


Mandatory vaccines, or forcing people to get vaccinated, is a direct violation of the Nuremberg Code that was established after WW2 to counteract Nazi policies and practices.

Look at the latest official info (May 2021) on deaths and injuries from the experimental gene altering jabs falsely labeled as vaccines that already reported. These numbers are way behind the real numbers but it shows you where all these injections are doing to the people receiving them and there are many more yet to be reported. 


These are all signs of the times where the antichrist system is being pushed to set things up for the still future man of sin or lawlessness.

We must take a stand.

The protests are going on all over the world. There is a complete media blackout on these protests going on worldwide.

Video of just ONE day of protests against the overreach and removal of our human rights by tyrannical governments:


Why are not churches protesting? Where is the righteous indignation and anger against evil?

Look at all the protest videos under the hashtag "wewillallbethere" 

https://www.youtube.com/hashtag/wewillallbethere .

We are not alone!

Disclaimer: There is profanity in some of the video clips. I didn't record any of these videos. I don't support the profanity, though I do support edgy and VERY tough language if it gets the message across! It's important that the Church understands that even unbelievers are rising up against the falsehoods so you will hear some cussing because they are super angry! I am 100% in agreement that we must stand and refuse to bow down to the falsehoods!

I wonder how many will have the guts to forward this message to all pastors, leaders, family members, and friends regardless of feelings and what they think? Will you be that bold even it is costs you friends and family? Are you going to rise up or cower to the lies? Are you a Christian or a pipsqueak mousy person? Are you a lion under the Lion of the tribe of Judah (Jesus) or little sheep led to slaughter? What are you?

"I am the righteousness of God in Christ," some are quick to say.


The righteous are as bold as a lion. (Proverbs 28:1b)

That should be us! Not only that. Those that dwell in the secret place of the Most High "will tread upon the lion and the cobra, and the young lion and the serpent will they trample underfoot." (Psalms 91:13) We are MORE than conquerors though Him that loved us! (Romans 8:37) None of that is for little weak lambs but for LIONS!

Now to the message:
