Greg Laurie, senior pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship, described in an end times message on Sunday what the antichrist will be like when he comes on earth.
“He is sent by Satan himself,” Laurie said in his sermon, titled “America, Antichrist, and the End of Days,” as he preached from the books of Daniel, 2 Thessalonians and Revelation.
“Satan is effectively an imitator, he always copies. Whatever God has, the devil will have his imitation,” the California megachurch pastor continued.
“There is God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, and there is Satan who wants to be in the place of God, and if Satan had a son, that would be the antichrist.”
He went on to describe the antichrist in more detail, saying, “When this man emerges on the scene, he may not be what you would expect. He will not be dressed in head to toe in black, with glowing red eyes and steam coming out of him, and the Darth Vader theme song playing when he walks into a room.”
“In fact, he will be a very charismatic world leader. A great orator, very convincing, probably very handsome.
“Think ‘The Devil Wears Prada,'” he quipped.
“He is going to do things that no world leader has ever done before. He is going to solve the Middle East conflict, and is he is going to rid the world at least temporarily of terrorism. He is going to be hailed as the greatest peace talker that ever lived,” Laurie warned.
The antichrist, he said, will even “get the Jewish nations and the Arab nations to sign a peace treaty that will pave the way for the long awaited Third Temple. The antichrist will be a satanic superman. But it’s all a mask hiding who he really is, [namely] the most evil man that ever lived.”
Laurie pointed out that there are over 100 passages in the Bible that talk about the antichrist. Summarizing some of the most important things to know about the figure, he said that the antichrist “is coming to defy and to take the place of Jesus.”
