Logos or Mythos: the Biblical Antichrist versus the New Age Antichrist

Updated: 4 days ago

Most of what we think we know about the Biblical Antichrist comes from the ancient Hebrew prophet Daniel and from St. John of Patmos, the author of the Book of Revelations. Both prophets received their revelations about the end times through dreams and visions allegedly with the guidance of divine beings, or angelic beings. At the time when Daniel had his visions of the end times the Israelites were living in exile and captivity in the land of ancient Babylon under King Belshazzar. Daniel, although he was a Hebrew, worked in the King’s High Court, one of his roles being as an interpreter of dreams. In Daniel 7 the prophet has visions of four beasts which represent four kings that are to arise from the sea with strange bodies like that of animals (a lion, a bear, a leopard, and a fourth beast described as dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly, with ten horns). Many Biblical scholars and clergymen today believe that the four beasts represent the four Major Kingdoms of that age and time: the Babylonians, the Medo-Persians, the Greeks, and the Romans. I firmly believe that the ancient prophecies of Daniel describe events on a regional and provincial level, affecting only the states and nations of the ancient Middle East, and that they should not be misunderstood or misinterpreted to describe the events of the global end-times. And in fact, there are threats to the survival of the planet earth that are tellingly and suspiciously not mentioned anywhere in the Hebrew Bible, such as the threats posed by nuclear war, comets and asteroids, global climate change, the degradation of the ozone layer, and by solar flares. While it’s true that some Biblical scholars derive profound and significant meaning and symbolism from the ancient Book of Daniel, we cannot ignore or overlook the fact that these ancient prophecies use strange and mystifyingly bizarre signs and symbols to relate their story. Believers in the ancient prophecies of Daniel say to us that the strange imagery and arcane symbolism were necessary to protect these future events from non-occurrence; if these prophecies were too detailed or too descriptive than that could have a disastrous affect on the laws of causality. In other words, if Daniel or John of Patmos had been more detailed; then these events may not ever transpire (presumably the God of Israel is allowing for the slaughter of his saints, and for war to be waged on Israel at the Battle of Megiddo). Christians would argue that the God of Israel is allowing these terrible and earth-shattering events to take place not out of cruelty or indifference but because it is the Divine plan for people of humanity. But I refuse to believe that a Divine and Omnipotent Creator would allow for his people to be systematically persecuted and martyred by Satan and the Biblical Antichrist. I do not believe that the actions, behaviors, and characteristics of YHWH, the Hebrew God, or the God of Israel is equivalent to the OMNI-GOD, or the Prime or Universal Creator of the Cosmos. If the God of Israel was the OMNI-GOD he could utilize his Divine Omnipotence to shield and protect his people indefinitely, and to expel the threat posed by Satan and the Biblical Antichrist from the earth. I think it is far more likely, that YHWH, the God of Israel, and his Holy Son, Jesus of Galilee, are only regional and provincial Gods or Deities of the earth plane of sphere, and that they are almost powerless to protect their people from the threats posed by their enemies. The God of Israel, working through his prophet Daniel, also tellingly could not foresee or envision the age of enlightenment, the scientific revolution, the advent of space travel, the digital age, and now in the 21st Century: the discovery of sentient and intelligent extraterrestrial beings, most of whom do not subscribe to belief in the God of Israel. I imagine that if YHWH, the God of Israel, was in fact the Universal LORD then the people of the Cosmos would be welcomed to the planet earth in unity and peace. Perhaps one of the reasons that extra- or non-terrestrial life is being kept secret from the American people and the people of earth is to protect the Christian religious hegemony and other ancient religious systems which serve to instill social order and cement ethical values. Moreover, if the Christian religious order were to fail or falter in the future the entire balance of power on the earth would be fundamentally affected which is also one of the reasons why the United States Government is reluctant and hesitant to confirm or validate the truth about ET life and contact. We must begin to consider the possibility that ancient Christian prophecies regarding the Global end-times are not founded in reality; and that the idea or notion of an end-times Antichrist was constructed by early Christians and Jewish converts to protect the Christian religious hegemony. And in fact, there are only four instances in the entire Hebrew Bible and New Testament when the term Antichrist is used by Biblical authors: (1) “Little children, it is the last hour: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last hour.” 1 John 2:18 Notwithstanding the fact that early-Christians predicted the Biblical end-times to come thousands of years ago, and now today still maintain that its arrival is imminent: my critics will point to this verse and say that I am nothing more than another minor antichrist, because there are many. Contrastingly, it is my aim, and my goal, to be the Last and Most Major Antichrist because I firmly believe that we need a “figure-head” to signify and represent the end of the “old age” of ancient and primitive religious systems, and to usher in a “new age” of religion and spirituality without all of the false and erroneous religious dogmas of history and antiquity. (2) “Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.” 1 John 2:22 In modern times, critics would denounce this statement as racist and bigoted, after all, almost every Jew denies that Jesus is the Christ; are all Jews liars and the antichrist? And thus enemies of Christianity? And what about Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, Omniests, and extra- or non-terrestrial beings? Are we, who comprise of the vast and overwhelming majority of earth people, all wrong and God-damned for our anti-Christian beliefs and sentiments? And thus, are we all the enemy of God? No, the truth is: Christians and their old, archaic, ancient, and primitive beliefs represent only a small minority of religious extremists; and Christianity is no longer representative of the collective beliefs of mankind. We must evolve and move beyond our primitive attachment to Jesus of Galilee and create a New Age Religion that more closely represents the shared beliefs and collective religious values of the people of earth. (3) “And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is the spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world." 1 John 4:3 We non- and anti-Christians do not deny that Jesus of Galilee was a real and verifiable historical figure, or that he was gifted or endowed with divine and miraculous powers; in part because we now know that other Gods and divine beings have also incarnated on the planet earth - they are the celestial and miraculous beings of history. We deny that Jesus of Galilee is the OMNI-GOD, or the Prime or Universal Creator, and that he is the Alpha and Omega of the Cosmos. The very reason why the "spirit of the Antichrist” resides on this earth, is because we are all Gentiles; and non-Christians, and the God of Israel has never truly cared for our safety, well-being, and survival. This is also highly suspicious; why has the "OMNI-GOD" chosen one man, Abraham, to be the patriarch of all of God’s chosen people? The OMNI-GOD that I know and serve would never choose “one people” over all others to inherit his blessing and saving grace; and deny it to all others. (4) “I say this because many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist.” John 1:7 Did John the apostle and other early Christians create the notion of an end-times Antichrist who would be the antithesis of Jesus in every respect and who would wage Holy War on the saints and attempt to destroy Christendom for some other alterior motive? Historically speaking, the Hebrews were constantly at war and under siege by foreign powers, and the early Christians were all being systematically persecuted and martyred for their faith in Jesus; without a doubt, the early Christians and the early Jewish converts to Christianity were courageous almost to a fault but also wary and fearful of a future King or Emperor that would threaten their religion and bring about the Biblical end-times, which was a recurring theme in Christian eschatology. Perhaps they devised, constructed, and manufactured a sort of “self-defense and psychological mechanism” to dissuade opponents of Christianity from speaking out against their God and prevent them from ever rising to political power. The Biblical end-times prophecies did do a rather effective job at preventing Holy War from ever being waged against them in earnest and their fledgling religious hegemony, now a powerhouse. Every Major World Religion has a sworn enemy, and a prophecy foretelling of a Major Devil that would attempt to destroy their people, their World, and their religious foundations. It makes logical sense that the Christians would adhere to and thoroughly disseminate this prophecy, as a warning to their people, and as a warning to all those that should ever attempt to oppose them; hence the threats of eternal condemnation. Next, there are primarily four sources of information about the Biblical Antichrist: (1) the Book of Daniel, (2) the Gospels, (3) the Books of John 1 and 2, and (4) the Book of Revelations. As we turn to Revelations 13, St. John of Patmos describes the rise and fall of the "Beast" and the "False Prophet." It was not uncommon for ancient Kings to be guided and instructed by a prophet, and so the idea or notion of a "False Prophet" was conceived to warn Christians about the dangers of following anyone who teaches and preaches anything contradictory to Biblical canon and doctrine. Like the beasts of the Book of Daniel, the Beast of Revelations also arises from the sea (Rev 13:1-10) and the other is a beast that arises from the earth, the false prophet (Rev 13:11-18). Many of my detractors and opponents will say that I am the False Prophet because of my work with Omnigion, a new age Multi-theistic Religion that I founded in 2020 to create peace, order, and unity throughout the Cosmos. I firmly believe that modern-day Christians subscribe to beliefs which are obsolete and inaccurate; and for this reason many of the beliefs of Omnigion, sound heretical and sacrilegious in comparison to biblical doctrine. The people of Earth and the American people require an up-to-date and contemporary religious code to take us into the "New Age" and beyond. Our spiritual and religious leaders must take action to create a "New Age" religious system to keep the people of earth in excellent spiritual health and at the peak and pinnacle of spiritual and intellectual development. Most people, although I claim to be the “New Age Antichrist” also do not believe that I am the final and prophesied Biblical Antichrist (thankfully) because I do not totally fulfill the necessary criteria. Biblical scholars and clergymen alike, have over the course of many centuries developed a very defined and detailed character profile of the Antichrist, which may not entirely be true. The question that I posit is this, if we know almost exactly how that Antichrist will rise to power, and exactly what he will do after he rises to power; how could the Biblical Antichrist ever be able to effectively rise to power or accomplish his political agenda? Most biblical scholars say that the Biblical Antichrist will be a False Christ and that he will deceive the masses with false signs, omens, and miracles. I argue that the myth of the Antichrist has already been globally inculcated to most if not all of the people of earth, and that a stratagem of this sort and variety could never be effectively employed because the people would react in exactly this way. I believe that it was the promulgation of the Hebrew Bible by way of the Gutenburg Printing Press that damned the people of earth and the American people (especially) to religious antipathy, paranoia, and religious extremism. In reality, there is no Biblical Antichrist, and the prophecies of the Hebrew prophets are not infallible nor are they immutable truths; they are ancient Christian mythology, created by the Hebrew people. I am the New Age Antichrist because I firmly believe, that in the future, after the revelation that we humans are not alone in the Cosmos, and after first contact with benevolent extraterrestrial ambassadors, that the good people of earth will unite in the spirit of peace and plurality, and formulate a United Earth Republic governed by an Earth Council comprised of elected representatives from all of the states and nations of the earth. If we finally let go of Jesus, ancient Christian mythology, and also other false and erroneous religious dogmas we can build a peaceful Utopia and a Global Democratic Government, the likes of which the World has never before seen. #AC4USA #Omnigion
