prayer02 – ABOUT THE ANTI-CHRIST

___________________________________
this is one way to interpret the anti-Christ
that is written in the last book
of the bible, revelation or apocalypse
 
the anti-Christ is not so much a person
as a symbol of the battle between good and evil,
between Jesus and satan
within every individual soul
 
the anti-Christ resides in us
if we are so proud
as to say we do not need the Lord
that we can do things on our own
that there is no more need to pray
 
this is the same sin of pride
of the people in the twin towers of babel
who began to believe they were so powerful
and did not need God anymore
so God destroyed the twin towers
 
or satan himself who refused to bow down
in homage to Jesus
because He was a human being
so it was written that the serpents head
would be crushed by the blessed Virgin
 
or the builders of the titanic
who said not even God could sink
such an unsinkable work of art
and so God sank the titanic
 
the sin of pride incurs
the wrath of the Lord totally
 
in the same way
the’mark of the beast’ written in revelation
is not so much a physical mark
on the forehead or the hand
but a spiritual mark inside our souls
that we have become too proud
and like the beast satan, refuse
to pay homage to the Lord
 
this individual battle within us
of Jesus and satan
if put together forms the anti-Christ
on the level of a group or a nation,
a group of nations or the entire humankind
 
the anti-Christ of the world
is all those alive today put together
who have rejected the Lord
or are not pleasing to Him
because of pride and other sins such as
greed, hatred, vengeance, lust
 
to is so easy to defeat the anti-Christ in us
prayer, repentance, homage, humility,
sharing, forgiveness, simplicity, love
if we do it on an individual level
all of us combined have defeated
the anti-Christ of the world
 
DEAR LORD, WE BOW DOWN
IN PRAYER AND HOMAGE AT YOUR FEET
ASKING YOU TO GIVE US THE GRACE
TO BE YOUR SERVANT
AND TO DISCERN AND FOLLOW
YOUR MOST HOLY WILL. AMEN
