You can all relax a little now. It has been established by a COG authority that Kaiser Wilhelm II was not the Antichrist, but maybe a type of beast. Isn't it so wonderful to have all of these authorities in the church telling us how things are and how they all fit into prophecy! Aren't we blest above all other churches!!!!!!
Now, if only they researched and discussed Jesus as much as they do these useless topics. One can dream, can't they?
A reader sent this to me this morning:
My study on Kaiser Wilhelm II (attached) has been updated with several items, one of them is this quote:
Marr Murray (1915) in his book Bible Prophecies and the Plain Man:
"The first beast of Revelation has seven heads, ten horns, and ten crowns, making twenty-seven separate features combined in one beast. There are exactly twenty-seven kingdoms, arch-duchies, principalities, and dependencies in the German Empire. They are Prussia, Bavaria, Saxony, Wiirtemberg, Baden, Hesse, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Saxe-Weimar, Mecklenburg-Strelitz, Oldenburg, Brunswick, Saxe- Meiningen, Saxe-Altenburg, Coburg and Gotha, An- halt, Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt, Schwarzburg-Sonders- hausen, Waldeck-Pyrmont, Reuss (elder branch), Reuss (younger branch), Schaumburg-Lippe, Lippe, Lubeck, Bremen, Hamburg, Alsace-Lorraine, and the Colonies.
There are, then, a number of likenesses between the Kaiser and the Antichrist. But there is one characteristic of the latter which is lacking in the Kaiser, or at any rate has not been evinced up to the present. And that is the fact that the Antichrist will be a military genius. He will be something more than a capable general: he will be greater than Cesar, or Napoleon, or Alexander, or any of the great military captains of the world. Events have shown that the Kaiser does not possess this pre-eminent genius. He has prepared the mightiest military machine the world has seen, but he cannot utilise it to the full. If Napoleon had had a quarter of the Kaiser’s military resources and advantages he would have been an Antichrist indeed. When the Corsican aimed at the domination of the world, France and Europe were exhausted after the great Revolution. The Kaiser has had innumerable advantages over Napoleon. He has enjoyed a period .of remarkable material prosperity, and has had time in which to make the most detailed preparations. The time and the opportunity are his, but he has not the genius to snatch them.
We must conclude, then, that he is not Antichrist. He is merely a man possessing some of the characteristics of the Antichrist. But if we imagine a blend of Napoleon and Kaiser, then we have an idea of what the real Antichrist will be like." (pp. 302-03)
Also, I have assembled a new table that demonstrates some similarities between the more recent Beast leaders. Does this provide insights into the final Beast? While I have mentioned these similarities before in previous articles, I thought it would be easier to follow and comprehend in the attached table form.
In due course I shall add this table to the ‘What will the Beast be Like?’ article available here.
Craig is as loony as Bob Thiel at times. He is obsessed with Herbert Armstrong and the stuff he wrote.
There's your anti Christ. These men are all anti Christ, partly because they never mention Him and even when they do, it's only to compare themselves to Him. But everything they do preach, teach or write about Him is twisted or flat out wrong. Dave has Him done up as a Levitical priest for goodness sake. Flurry too.
These guys don't know Jesus, period. They prove it every time they open their mouths to utter more prophetic nonsense in His Name.
THE (one) antichrist?? There have been many since the apostle John which is how we know we are in the end time, since John, the "last hour"! 1John 2:18.
I just started to read the booklet this article came from, but got no further than page 8. His suggested reading list included Ambassador College Correspondence Course, lesson 11. I stopped giggling long enough to go a few more pages in until I got to this gem. "It continues to amaze me how accurate the Church of God has been in its prophetic understanding, and I cannot find another church group that approximates its understanding or has been so accurate in its predictions." Page 8.
Someone's been sniffing the glue again! What can you even say to this deluded man? You are deceived, sir, and need to get away from the glue and into a genuine church. God save us from these cog loons!
I have many business issues in my company that keep me up at night. I am relieved to learn that this issue will be one less thing to keep me up at the wee hours of the morning to worry about. Richard
Many members lives have been harmed, and perhaps even destroyed by this fixation on prophesy and date setting. We'll never know in detail because the victims are too embarrassed to admit that they were deceived by an ad man.
The fruits are definitely bitter.
Glue? So writes the pothead.
And you do? All you do is accuse others of not knowing God. When did Jesus put you in his place of judging others on who does or doesn't know Jesus?
Reads extremely expensively immature.
Anon 2:47 Well, if I'm going to be immature, I want to do it expensively. Lol. Grow up.
These people have too much time on their hands. It would be nice if they expected those with whom they shared to say "Oh, my! Isn't that interesting?" But they don't. They use the special gnosticism which they collect to self-aggrandize,or to leverage others into modifying their behavior, or in extreme cases to take over the financial security of others. Beware of Armstrongites and the HWA prophecy mold!
I wish they were as harmless as the proverbial dyslexic agnostic insomniac, who lies awake all night long wondering if there is a dog! Get it? Go back and reread it, and then ROF-LYAO!
Since Kaiser Wilhelm was English Queen Victoria's grandson, DOES THIS MEAN that the German People are now Israel??
A 14th tribe of Israel, a nice doubling of the number 7 , the number of perfection? Is the throne of David now in Berlin??
