I would like to use the definition found in the books of John as the measure to find out who or what the Antichrist is. It is in fact the only place in the Bible that we get a direct definition not based on our interpretation of the Bible that discusses who and what the Antichrist is. I know that many well-known people have written extensively about the Antichrist, but as far as my research could find, nobody used the Bible only and then specifically John as the definition of the Antichrist. John is the only Apostle that mentions the Antichrist and describes him.
I would like to interrupt myself here by adding just one item that I believe is of utmost importance. I do not refer to the unregenerate person that thinks he or she is a Christian but cannot explain why they think that they are a Christian. This includes all the following people that Paul list in his letters. “Actually, then, it is already a defeat for you, that you have lawsuits with one another. Why not rather be wronged? Why not rather be defrauded? On the contrary, you yourselves wrong and defraud. You do this even to your brethren. Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God. All things are lawful for me, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be mastered by anything. Food is for the stomach and the stomach is for food, but God will do away with both of them. Yet the body is not for immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord is for the body. Now God has not only raised the Lord, but will also raise us up through His power. Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take away the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? May it never be! Or do you not know that the one who joins himself to a prostitute is one body with her? For He says, “THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH.” But the one who joins himself to the Lord is one spirit with Him. Flee immorality. Every other sin that a man commits is outside the body, but the immoral man sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.” (1Cor 6:7-20)
So these people are still in Babylon and on their way to Hell, lost and without the LORD. You will find them on all Biblical chat groups, Christian online and print magazines, and like the one reference I found this morning when I looked at some of the commentaries to the “show” at half time of the Super Bowl on Sunday 2 February 2020: “OK, you lot didn’t like the halftime show. That’s perfectly all right. However, putting it down to some kind of moral decay of society is your particular viewpoint, which is not shared by the majority of the audience. And like it or not, we’re not going to “protect” your little varmints from things that bother neither us nor our own kids in the slightest”
So I am not referring to them at all in this writing, as this writing just looks at where the Antichrist comes from, and if we look at the Bible, you will see in the next paragraph who these people are that I am addressing in this book.
“Children, it is the last hour; and just as you heard that antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have appeared; from this we know that it is the last hour. They went out from us, but they were not really of us; for if they had been of us, they would have remained with us; but they went out, so that it would be shown that they all are not of us. But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you all know. I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it, and because no lie is of the truth. Who is the liar but the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son. Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father; the one who confesses the Son has the Father also. As for you, let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father. This is the promise which He Himself made to us: eternal life. These things I have written to you concerning those who are trying to deceive you. As for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him.” (1Jn 2:18-27)
“Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God; and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world. You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world. They are from the world; therefore they speak as from the world, and the world listens to them. We are from God; he who knows God listens to us; he who is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.” (1Jn 4:1-6)
We also find that many Bible commentaries gives us additional information when we look at these verses of scripture, but as I said earlier, most people gets confused and start using their theology to define the Antichrist.
WHO IS CORRECT?
There are two extremely well-known pastors and writers who have two completely different approaches to this subject, and that is where I will start, just by way of introduction to see how big a gap we find today. On the one hand we find Rick Warren who is renowned for his book or series of books around The Purpose Driven Life/Church. The interesting part for me about this book is that it was based on a book published by Peter Drucker called Management By Objectives that I had as one of my prescribed books when I did a course after completing my studies at university in 1971. This was a course run by the University of South Africa and aimed specifically at management in medium to large organisations. Now the writer of the book is a well-known atheist and friend of Rick Warren. Together they changed it in order for it to be used by Churches and groupings across the world. However, the one area that we find in this book concerns the end times.
The second and maybe even a bigger threat to Christians than Rick Warren, is the people who support the rapture theory. They do so because of their inability to really understand the difference between a covenant and a promise. They also prefer to read Scofield’s notes on the Bible than reading the Bible without Scofield’s notes. One of the biggest contributing factors for this theology and its acceptance by people, is that I only have to pray this short sinner’s prayer and I am saved. I do not have to stop and change my life to live like a true Christian, as that would constitute work and I cannot work myself into heaven. I have already received my grace and therefor all my sins are forgiven and I can now continue with my life without any consequences. And of course the pastor leading this charge of Christian Zionists is John Hagee.
You can download the full book here to read through and hopefully understand who and what the antichrist is. Just in case you missed the link to the book the antichrist revealed it is here.
As a result of my episodes in the past with cancer, which I am still fighting today, and Hettie’s fight with breast cancer we do not qualify for private medical insurance/medical aid funds. So we have to use the state hospitals and pay for our own medication which is around 70% of our monthly pension.

I write books and articles analyzing Biblical issues, and supply that also on a do not pay basis on this website, as I believe that we all need to get exposed to maybe a different way of thinking than what we were brought up with. I only started questioning my own belief system in 1995 after being diagnosed with stage 4 NET cancer. I lived my life in the computer industry, designing new ways of doing things, questioning every aspect of a business and its functions, and at times came up with inventions that were years ahead of what we had available in South Africa.
Now using the same approach that is available to me as a website owner and Christian writer, I will use all the information at my disposal even if it means reading volumes of old Christian writers letters and articles.
Unfortunately the one thing I found is that I can honestly say that Christians are the worst givers when it comes to giving to people who are trying to make a living by explaining what the Bible is all about. I see myself as a Christian Apologist, so I will look at what we believe, pull it apart and either confirm it or come up with a different answer than the one every person is running after.
But why do say that they are the worst givers?
O yes, we will hang on to the Roman Catholic way of giving, as Luther had to use it to survive. That way if you want to get to heaven, you can support my ministry by giving money to my ministry and I can become rich. The moment the money drops into the bag, your sins are forgiven. So you can either translate the German to indulge or pardon. So Luther was a great guy, like we find so many great guys today using his method. The moment your donation hits his bank, your sins are forgiven and you are healed, and the false prophet can indulge himself in your hard-earned money. We find that people in this category like a John Hagee can write books without even understanding the Bible and sell 5 million copies of the four blood moons that never materialized, and we will still support him even though he is an obvious false prophet. Did any of his predictions come to fruition? No, not as far as I know. He will even try to convince you that we cannot blame the Jews for not accepting Jesus as the Messiah, as He never told them that He was the Messiah. So that is why He has to return to earth, which then plays straight into their Antichrist doctrine of the rapture. But we forget that Jesus told a parable of the young rich man and Lazarus where the young man asked Jesus to send Lazarus back to earth to tell his brothers that Jesus was in fact the Messiah. But Jesus told him they have Moses and the prophets, and if they do not believe them, then they will end up in Hell. In fact Deuteronomy says what we should do with people like him, Joel Osteen, Joyce Meyer, Kenneth Copeland and so many more of these false people that are using Luther’s’ method, and people do not understand that it is straight from the Roman Catholic Church, as Luther knew all about how to use and live of other people’s money while being a Roman Catholic priest. That was the one thing he never touched in any writings. So that is how all the Zionist Christians are making their money.
“If a prophet or a dreamer of dreams arises among you and gives you a sign or a wonder, and the sign or the wonder comes true, concerning which he spoke to you, saying, ‘Let us go after other gods (whom you have not known) and let us serve them,’ you shall not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams; for the LORD your God is testing you to find out if you love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul. “You shall follow the LORD your God and fear Him; and you shall keep His commandments, listen to His voice, serve Him, and cling to Him. “But that prophet or that dreamer of dreams shall be put to death, because he has counseled rebellion against the LORD your God who brought you from the land of Egypt and redeemed you from the house of slavery, to seduce you from the way in which the LORD your God commanded you to walk. So you shall purge the evil from among you.” (Deu 13:1-5) The last sentence is of paramount importance. The teachings of the Antichrist is not going to come from people outside the church. No, it is going to and is already coming from people inside the Church as leaders of huge church groupings.
So they can quickly change their minds and say that it was the custom of the Old Covenant, testament or whatever they want to call it, and it is only applicable to Israel, not to us as gentiles. Then just ask them to show you the rapture without referencing the Old Testament, as they say it is only for Israel. Tell them Daniel is not applicable to us as gentiles so they cannot use it, and see how they fight to include it even though they say that the Old Testament is only applicable to the Jews.
Meanwhile people like myself can write books and publish it without any hefty payments, and then you find that the statistics on my website shows that people only downloaded nearly 16,000 books the past year, as can be seen from the .pdf files and making up 73,54 % of all the traffic on my website. All I ask for is a donation to allow me to live. I cannot promise you eternal life as that is something that you will find in my books is a way to follow which might just give you the ability to know who the LORD is and what He requires from us to receive everlasting life. What did I get from Christians as a reward for my writings? Nothing. Zilch. Not a cent. You would rather spend money on YOUR favorite Christian Zionist writer and end up in hell following a false prophet, than trying to find a way that could lead you to salvation and heaven. Did you know that Rick Warren is also head of the Chris-lam movement, saying that Mohamed is the way to salvation for the Muslims, and Christ the way for us as Christians. He further states that we should not spend time in trying to understand the end times as that detracts from our calling as making people disciples of Jesus. His book, The purpose driven life, is based on the book Managing by objectives that I had to use in my business studies after university, and that changed all churches into mega coporations, with a uniform objective, to make money.
So are you just going to continue the same road as all the others of 100,000+ people downloading books over the last 12 years, or are you going to surprise me with a contribution that could just maybe assist in paying for some pain tablets to make my life with cancer more manageable? Or maybe I could use it to pay to see a doctor that could assist me in my fight against cancer.
You choose. Just remember Matthew 25: “”Then He will also say to those on His left, ‘Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels; for I was hungry, and you gave Me nothing to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me nothing to drink; I was a stranger, and you did not invite Me in; naked, and you did not clothe Me; sick, and in prison, and you did not visit Me.’ “Then they themselves also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not take care of You?’ “Then He will answer them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ “These will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.” (Mat 25:41-46)

U kan ons ondersteun deur die bogemelde inligting te gebruik. Aangesien ek geen mediesefonds het nie a.g.v. my kanker en rug storie, asook Hettie se geveg met bors kanker, is ons aangewese op privaat betaling van ons medikasie aangesien die plaaslike kliniek net panado’s het, en staats hospitale. So elke sent help. Net ons medisyne maandeliks beloop amper 70% van ons pensioen.
Ek het maar my lewe voor en so ‘n ruk na diagnose met NET kanker in die rekenaar bedryf spandeer. Daar het ek maar na stelsels van firmas gekyk en ontleed nuwes beskryf en implimenteer, en dan selfs nuwe produkte ontwerp om probleme op te los.
Nou kyk ek na die data en vergelyk ek dit met wat ek as Christelike Apologeet vind op my webtuiste. Soos met die data oor enige onderwerp doen ek al my navorsing voordat ek oor goed skryf wat mense maar moeilik vind om self te bestudeer of oor opinies uit te spreek. Al wat ek maar doen is kyk na ons Christelike standpunte, kyk of ek dit kan bevestig of nie, en meeste kere antwoorde kry wat ons nie altyd wil hoor nie. En dan plaas ek dit of as enkel artikel, of indien dit ‘n boek is, as boek in pdf formaat op my webtuiste.
Maar dan vra ek net dat mense ‘n vrywillige donasie gee vir dit wat hulle op my webtuiste kry. Maar ongelukkig is al gevolgtrekking wat ek kan maak, is dat Christene seker die swakste gewers is wat daar bestaan.
Maar hoekom sê ek dit?
Ons hou mos van die Rooms Katolieke wyse van gee. Dit is maar die manier wat Luther ook gebruik het om te bestaan. Deur die metode te gebruik, kan jy vandag genesing ontvang sodra jy vir die tiende predikers ‘n donasie gee, want dan sal hulle vir jou bid en sal jy genees wees. As jy nie genesing ontvang nie, is dit jy wat nie genoeg geloof gehad het nie, of jou bydrae was dalk ‘n bietjie te min vir dit wat jy wou kry. So het Luther maar nog aangehou met sy plekkie in die gebou waar jy kon gaan sit en al jou sondes teenoor hom bely, en die oomblik wat jou geldjie in die aflate boks weerklink het, is jou sonde vergewe en kon jy weer aangaan totdat jy weer op die aflate stoel bevind het. So maak meeste van ons groot naam predikers hul geld. So vind ons byvoorbeeld mense soos John Hagee wat nie eers die Bybel verstaan nie en skryf oor die vier bloed mane van so ‘n paar jaar gelede, die metode gebruik en mense koop sy vals profesieë by die miljoene. Het enige van sy uitlatings waar geword? Nee, maar hy het lekker ryk geword daaruit. En dan kan jy maar gaan kyk na van sy preke op Youtube. Dan maak hy uitlatings soos Jesus het nie vir die Jode gesê dat Hy die Christus is nie, so hoe kon hulle dan weet dat Hy die Christus is. Nou kan ons mos verwag dat Jesus weer moet kom om hulle te oortuig dat Hy die Christus is, en dit skakel natuurlik baie mooi in by die wegrapingsteorie van die Antichris. Maar ons vergeet dat die ryk jong man vir Abraham gevra het om Lasarus na sy broers te stuur om hulle te vertel dat Jesus die Christus is, en dat Jesus se antwoord was dat hulle het Moses en die profete, as hulle nie die mense glo nie, sal hulle nie die ewige lewe beërf nie. So ten spyte van die feit dat ons weet wat hy en baie ander valse profete is, pas ons nie toe wat die Bybel verklaar ons moet doen met valse profete nie. En dit geld sommer vir al sy maatjies, soos ‘n Joel Osteen, Joyce Meyer, Kenneth Copeland, en hordes ander wat almal van Luther se aflate gebruik om geld te maak maar is ons bang om hierdie mense te openbaar as valse profete wat bedoel is vir die ewige verderf. So het die mense geleer om soos Luther op ander mense te teer om in luuksheid te kan leef. Dit was die een onderwerp wat Luther nooit aangespreek het in sy skrywes nie want dan het hy sy eie keel afgesny. So nou vind ons dat al die Christelike Sioniste die metode gebruik om hulleself te verryk. En dan trek hulle ‘n Maleagi 3 vers 8 preek uit, en nou kan hulle weer die Ou Testament wat volgens hulle net vir Israel geld, gebruik om geld uit jou te kry. Die HERE het die vrywillige gewer lief, of die een wat ander leer, maar nie die Antichris en sy leermeesters nie. Dan ignoreer ons ook die gedeelte van Lasarus en die ryk jongman, waar die jongman vra dat Lasarus sy broers, wat almal Jode was, te gaan waarsku om Jesus as hul Saligmaker te erken ander gaan hulle ook braai. So waar pas die wegraping daar in?
“As ‘n profeet of een wat as dromer optree, by jou opstaan en jou ‘n teken of wonder aankondig, en die teken of wonder kom uit wat hy jou beloof het met die woorde: Laat ons agter ander gode aan loop—wat jy nie geken het nie—en hulle dien, dan moet jy nie luister na die woorde van dié profeet of na dié man wat as dromer optree nie; want die HERE julle God beproef julle om te weet of julle werklik die HERE julle God liefhet met julle hele hart en met julle hele siel. Julle moet die HERE julle God navolg en Hom vrees en sy gebooie hou en na sy stem luister en Hom dien en Hom aanhang. Maar dié profeet of dié man wat as dromer optree, moet gedood word, want hy het afval verkondig van die HERE julle God wat julle uit Egipteland uitgelei en jou uit die slawehuis verlos het, deur jou af te drywe van die weg wat die HERE jou God jou beveel het om daarop te wandel. So moet jy dan die kwaad uit jou midde uitroei.” (Deu 13:1-5) Die laaste sin is ontsettend belangrik. Die kwaad kom uit ons midde. So nie iemand wat anders is nie, maar iemand wat as Christen gesien word en in ons midde beweeg. Want jy sal die afval nie van een van jou eie mense verwag nie.
Nou kan hulle baie vinnig dit verander en sê dat die Ou Testament net vir die Jode geld, en dit slegs van toepassing is op Israel want die verbond geld net vir Israel en nie vir ons nie. Nou kan ons maar vra hoe hulle dan met die wegrapingsleer kan uitkom as hulle verklaar dat die Ou Testament net vir Israel geld. Dan kan hulle mos nie nou skielik na Daniël verwys nie, want dit het niks met ons as Nuwe Testamentiese Christene te doen nie.
So kan ek en baie ander Christen skrywers boeke en artikels skryf sonder dat jy as leser daarvoor hoef te betaal, en dan vind jy uit dat in 2020 by my so net meer as 16,000 boeke afgelaai is en maak dit 73,54% van al my data op wat my webtuiste gedra het verlede jaar. Maar, ek kan nie vir jou die ewige lewe belowe as jy my manier volg nie, ook kan ek nie genesing belowe sodra jy vir my geld gee nie. Ek kan dalk vir jou dit makliker maak om die Bybel se boodskap te verstaan sodat jy en die HERE saam ‘n paadjie kan begin loop en dat jy kan sien wat die ewige lewe beteken vir ons as Christene. Wat het ek gekry as vrywillige bydraes? Niks. Nul. Zilch. Nie ‘n sent nie. Jy sal eerder jou geld spandeer op jou gunsteling Christelike Sionis se boek of een van hulle talle liedere waarmee hulle uitkom as om seker te maak dat jy op die nou pad is na die hemel. Net so interessante stukkie inligting vir jou. Het jy geweet dat Rick Warren van “The purpose driven life”, die hoof is van die Chrislam beweging wat verklaar dat Jesus vir ons as Christene as verlosser optree en Mohammed as verlosser vir die Moslems optree. Dit is hoekom hy graag wil hê dat ons ons tyd sal spandeer om dissipels te maak en programme op te stel om mense na ons gemeente te trek en hoe jy jou doel moet naspeur as om die eindtyd te bestudeer. Want dan moet hy kies tussen Jesus en Mohammed.
So is daar 15,932 pdf lêers afgelaai van my webtuiste en dit 73.54% van die verkeer op my webtuiste was. Nou kan jy maar dieselfde optree as die ander 100,000 plus mense wat oor die afgelope 12 jaar boeke afgelaai het van my webtuiste sonder enige bydrae, of dalk kan jy my verbaas deur ‘n bydrae te maak wat my dalk net gaan help om my medisyne vir pyn en al die ander simptome van hierdie snaakse kanker wat ek het mee te verlig of te bestuur. Of miskien help dit dalk net dat ek weer by ‘n dokter kan uitkom wat my kan help met my stryd teen hierdie kanker.
Jy kan kies. Maar onthou net hoe Jesus die skape van die bokke gaan skei wanneer Hy weer kom: “Dan sal Hy ook vir dié aan sy linkerhand sê: Gaan weg van My, julle vervloektes, in die ewige vuur wat berei is vir die duiwel en sy engele. Want Ek het honger gehad, en julle het My nie te ete gegee nie; Ek het dors gehad, en julle het My nie te drinke gegee nie. Ek was ‘n vreemdeling, en julle het vir My nie herberg gegee nie; naak, en julle het My nie geklee nie; siek en in die gevangenis, en julle het My nie besoek nie. Dan sal hulle Hom ook antwoord en sê: Here, wanneer het ons U honger gesien of dors of ‘n vreemdeling of naak of siek of in die gevangenis, en U nie gedien nie? Dan sal Hy hulle antwoord en sê: Voorwaar Ek sê vir julle, vir sover julle dit nie gedoen het aan een van hierdie geringstes nie, het julle dit aan My ook nie gedoen nie. En hulle sal weggaan in die ewige straf, maar die regverdiges in die ewige lewe.” (Mat 25:41-46)
So indien jy voel dat ek jou dalk oortuig het om ook vir my as skrywer en Christelike Apologeet ‘n ietsie te gee sodat ek nog gewoontes kan navors en oor skryf, of om te help met kostes soos ek voorheen genoem het, kan jy jou bydrae maak by:
