Max Lucado | The Mark of the Antichrist Revealed

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Max Lucado is a pastor, speaker, and best-selling author who, in his own words, “writes books for people who don’t read books.” He serves the people of Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas, and his message is for the hurting, the guilty, the lonely, and the discouraged: God loves you; let him.

As a writer, Max is known for combining poetic storytelling and homespun humor with the heart of a pastor. All of his trade books began as sermon series at Oak Hills Church, and his sermons all begin with Max asking himself this question: “What can I say on Sunday that will still matter on Monday?” He’s been dubbed “America’s Pastor” by Christianity Today, and “The Best Preacher in America” by Reader’s Digest.

Max’s books have sold more than 120 million copies in 54 languages worldwide. He published On the Anvil, his first trade book, in 1985. His 42nd trade book, You Are Never Alone: Trust in the Miracle of God’s Presence and Power, was released on September 14, 2020. Max’s books regularly appear on bestseller lists, including The New York Times. His writing has also been featured in Bible studies, Bible commentaries, songs, greeting cards, and even plush toys.

Max’s love for everyday people began during his childhood in the small town of Andrews, Texas. His father was an oilfield mechanic, his mother was a nurse, and Max spent a lot of his time either running from or running after his brother, Dee. Max grew rebellious in his teenage years, and after one specific drunken night, he began to wonder if there was more to life than parties and chasing girls. He now believes that if Jesus hadn’t found him and changed his heart, alcoholism would have been in his future.

After high school, Max attended Abilene Christian University and left with two degrees and a heart for following Jesus and helping others learn about him, too. He moved to Miami, Florida, and took a position as an associate pastor at a small church. This is where Max started writing about Jesus for the first time in the church’s monthly newsletter, and it’s where he developed his passion for people and ministry.

Florida was also where Max met his wife, Denalyn. Together, they lived first in Miami and then spent several years in Rio de Janeiro, helping plant churches. The newsletters Max wrote to family and friends while in Rio, along with the newsletters he wrote at his church in Miami, eventually formed the manuscript of his first book, On the Anvil.

Max and Denalyn now live in San Antonio, Texas. They have three grown daughters, two sons-in-law, and two grandchildren.

      In Daniel’s time the symbology of the number ten would have been understood by Daniel and the Jews to mean the lost ten tribes which were already dispersed into the nations long before Daniel’s time. In our times there is a rising religious view that certain races or a chosen race are the descendants of the lost ten tribes, and hence God’s chosen people in the world today. They tell us that there is a kingdom coming where they will rule as kings in the earth. However the kingdom of God came in Christ and remains in the earth today, and God has no need to revive the old flesh and blood kingdom of old since the Kingdom of God aka the kingdom of Christ is a spiritual kingdom superior to the flesh and blood kingdom of old. And Daniel tells us that the kingdom of God will over come and subdue the kingdoms of this world, and will be the last one left standing and that it shall never be destroyed. Those ten kings looking for a kingdom to come rule today through their one hour radio broadcast around the world preaching their flesh and blood kingdom doctrine, despite Paul telling us that flesh and blood can not inherit the kingdom of God. This doctrine has always been around in the earth, especially Europe, and was broadcast around the world by the World Wide Church of God, the Christian Israelite / British Israelite Identity movement.

      Revelation 17:12
      “And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.”

      Your typical Pre-Tribulation Rapture fable…. Let no man deceive you by any means for that day (Gathering back to Christ) SHALL NOT come except there comes a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed. How will he reveal himself? By STANDING IN THE HOLY PLACE and professing his self to be God. This event is the “abomination of desolation.” Jesus warned us in Matthew 24:15 when you see the abomination of desolation STAND IN THE HOLY PLACE, then be ready to escape. This event happens in the middle of the final seven years; not before the final seven years start. Daniel 9:27 “27 And he (Anti-Christ) shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: (7 Years) and in the MIDST OF THE WEEK he (Anti-Christ, Man of Sin) shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.” The “desolate” will receive the pouring out of the seven vials of God’s wrath upon their self. The wrath of God is poured out without mixture. (Not watered down.) The wrath of God is not the same thing as the tribulation. Jesus said in this world we shall have tribulation, but be of good cheer, He has overcome the world. Acts 14:22 says we MUST through MUCH tribulation enter into the kingdom of God. BE NOT DECEIVED by silver tongued “Preachers.”

      No pretribulation rapture Max. If for any other reason because the Church is not ready and needs a kick in the butt.

      #2 SECOND COMING Thou Fool! “I come quickly” so “Hold fast till i come”… NOT …“in another 2000 yrs I might be coming soon any time now, so hold fast”!?! …those that deny the second coming of Christ in the war of AD70 are practicing a damnable heresy in denying the lord that bought them ( 2Peter 2:1-2 ;2Tim 4:8/ you cant love an appearing you deny& the context is the 2nd coming not the first)… Mat 7:23..”I NEVER KNEW YOU” …..Mat 10:33. But whosoever shall deny me before men……..sound familiar?…. If I said I am coming to your house in this generation when these things happen but no one knows the day or hour what fool would think I might be coming in 2000 years latter!?!? ..2 Tim 4: 4. And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be TURNED UNTO FABLES. 2Thess 2: 11. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12. That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

      #3 There is a sharp contrast between THREE groups : (1) “PREDESTINED DAMNED” who were NEVER written in the book of life ………..Rev 17: 8 WHOSE NAMES WERE NOT WRITTEN IN…
