COVID-19 World Seems 'Perfectly Suited for the Antichrist to Come': John MacArthur
Pastor and author John MacArthur told his congregation on Sunday that today’s world – with a virus spreading through every country and governments ordering citizens to stay home – seems “perfectly suited for the Antichrist to come.’

MacArthur, the pastor of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, Calif., and a popular author and radio pastor, made the comments during a Sunday evening service in which he discussed COVID-19, government restrictions and Scripture.

The world’s governments, MacArthur said, “have done something that's never been done in human history.” That is, they have made the issue and the response “global,” he asserted.

“Now we are a global world. And that is a setup that we've been waiting for through redemptive history since the Lord promised that there would come, in the future, an Antichrist who would have a global government,” he noted. ...

I definitely agree about the more questions than answers! I personally think too many obsess to much over this topic. I really hate both the scammy profiteering by “experts” hawking their latest speculative book and the attitude that any inconveniences to living the Christian Life in the West are surefire “signs of the times” and mean Christ’s return is imminent- but decades of hardcore Christian Persecution throughout history and in other parts of the world somehow don’t “count”.
I found this article the other day that sums up my position pretty well:

Thanks for the additional information and your kindness. I also think that people obsess too much over these kinds of topics.

Very much worth a listen. The last portion is a clip of a doctor sharing the effectiveness of treating and eliminating the Covid-19 virus by a commonly known drug which treats parasites. Ivermectin

1 Cor 2:6 But we speak wisdom among the mature, but not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to naught. 7 But we speak in a mystery, the wisdom of God having been hidden, which God foreordained before the ages for our glory.

10 For God has revealed it to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God.

12 Now we have not received the spirit of the world, but the Spirit from God, that we may know the things having been granted to us by God, 13which also we speak, not in words taught of human wisdom, but in those taught of the Spirit, communicating spiritual things by spiritual means.
14But the natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God; for they are foolishness to him, and he is not able to understand them, because spiritually they are discerned. 15But he who is spiritual judges all things, but he himself is judged by no one. 16“For who has known the mind of the Lord? Who will instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ.

Luke 8:17 For nothing is hidden which will not become manifest, nor secret which shall not be known and come to light.

Most of the positions you posted are variations of Dispensational Pre-Millennialism. There is also Historical Pre-Millennialism, Amillennialism, and Post-Millennialism.👍🏻
Thanks for the additional information concerning the different millennial positions. That is one area that I studied and ended up with more questions than answers. I am a pre-millennialist, but can’t defend my position very well. The only end-times position that I take a stand on is I am a post-tribulationist and I also will argue that the Vatican is the great whore in Rev. Over the years I have convinced no one that I am right when they disagree. The areas you noted are among the most divisive areas in scripture. The biggest difficulty is what is literal and what is figurative; IOW what is our hermeneutic. I also am not a big fan of using the so-called expert’s opinions, just because they are Dr. so and so.

Deuteronomy 29:29 The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.”

He's certainly revealing himself more as he takes his place on the stage of the world. (2 Thess 2:3) even admitting himself 'he is the devil'.. in 2018. WCF 25:5 states, “There is no other head of the church but the Lord Jesus Christ: nor can the Pope of Rome in any sense be the head thereof; but is that antichrist, that man of sin, and son of perdition, that exalteth himself in the church against Christ, and all that is called God.”
Why don't evangelical Protestant churches believe and teach this anymore? Jesuit invented counter Reformation preterist and futurist views on Antichrist are deceptive and designed for a reason. Richard Bennett , former RC priest describes well here who this man of sin is and it may be soon that Christians won't be able to access these vital sources of information... would urge Christians to personally save and record while there is still opportunity. https://www.sermonaudio.com/solo/swrb/sermons/81703213440/

Frank, I see I didn't post the answer to the question which you asked for. The answer is righteousness.

Its either HIS which He promised to write on hearts (Jer31:33) or the Isaiah 55 reference which describes the labor which satisfies not. Those that rely on their labor are the antithesis of being in Christ.

They would be antiChrist like those spoken of here by The apostle John.

1 John 2:18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there *many antichrists*; whereby we know that it is the last time.

I would urge you to study Revelation with an emphadis on Israel about who the whore really is. It is not the catholic church I promise. Tradition has taught that, not the Bible.

Interesting article. Instead of arguing about the tribulation we should be getting the gospel out to the lost and hopeless that we encounter. We can't thwart what is going on because then we are trying to change God's plan. This world is moving at warp speed and not heading in a good direction. All the more reason to share the gospel.

Sorry for the confusion and I'm not trying to debate you so don't feel obligated to respond. All I asked was a question and a place to look that discusses buying and selling like the Revelation. I didn't say anything about doing way with a mark either, so I'm not sure where that thought comes from.

Seems reasonable to me that understanding What the currency in God's economy is would be instrumental in coming to an understanding.

In rev. 1:9 john says ' your brother in tribulation'. This is ongoing, from Christ's first coming until his second. This is from B.Parker's rev.series,"Dead religion/false gospels deceive the non elect into the mark- the mind adhering to the deceptive gospel, the hand following the mind by buying and selling their way to their god. This is the imperfect failed work of man, which the number 666 represents. Examples of the works include free will decisions and invitations, law keeping, infant baptism, growing holier, moral uprightness, etc. Any work you think you must do to earn merit or prove assurance is buying and selling your way to this pseudo christ. The number 666 proves all this dead religion is merely the deceptive work of man, it falls short and doesn't save." - study notes

Is it not spoken of in Isaiah 55:1-2?
I am confused. Why are you asking me a question if you obviously think you have the correct answer? If you have the answer to your question, please post it for me.

Isaiah 55:1 Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.

2 Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight

If you believe the above verses somehow do away with mark of the beast and the ability to buy and sell during the tribulation period then IMO you have a bad hermeneutic.

As you know, my end-time thoughts are different than yours, so I don't understand your point?

Anyway, “to me” this is a secondary issue and "like I said early on"; I have no desire to debate it on the open forum. That is one reason I post my email address.

BUT, NO CHRISTIAN WILL TAKE THE MARK.
