Bible Study Evangelista Show show

Summary: “Antichrist will be of Jewish extraction, of the tribe of Dan, will be circumcised, will rebuild Jerusalem and the Jewish temple, in which he will set himself up as God. Likewise he is to begin his work of seduction among the Jews who will accept him as their Messiah. Thus Irenaeus says of Antichrist: ‘Jeremiah does not merely point out his sudden coming, but he even indicates the tribe from which he shall come, where he says, “We shall hear the voice of his swift horses from Dan–he shall come and devour the earth”‘ (Jer 8:16).” -1936 Catholic Encyclopedia<br> <br> Public revelation in Christ (Apostolic Tradition and Scripture) ALWAYS takes primary place in discerning end times events and prophecies. Not Marian apparitions, contemporary prophets, or fascinating modern predictions. <br> <br> <br> <br> Thank you to my newest Friends of the Show, Rodney H; Colleen W; Kathy Y; Amy W; Lynn T; Dianne P; and Cynthia C, for loving and lifting me!
