So that guy will come first and then Jesus. Why is he so important?
First of all.......Jesus Christ will not WALK the earth again....He will come to judge the Living and the Dead!
Christianity base their beleif in the Apostles Creed........I beleive in one God...The Creed is a concise summary of all the truths of the Christian
Faith, composed and affirmed in the First and Second Ecumenical Councils.
The Seventh Article of the Creed.
7. And He shall come again, with glory, to judge both the living and the dead, Whose kingdom shall have no end.
For as the lightning cometh out of the east,
and shineth even unto the west,
so shall also the coming of the Son of man be (Matt.24:27).
The second coming of Christ the Saviour will be extraordinary: The sun shall be darkened,
and the moon shall not give her light,
and the stars shall fall from heaven,
and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken; and then shall appear the sign of the Son of man, (a cross) in heaven; and then shall all the tribes of
the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory (Matt. 24:29-30),
...and all the holy angels with Him, then shall He sit upon the throne of His glory: And before Him shall be gathered all nations (Matt. 25:31-46),
more on the Christian beleif of the Creed////
Many people actually make up all sort's of stories of when ''they'' think Christ will come.....
quote//In the First Epistle to Timothy,the Apostel Paul writes:Now the spirit speaketh expressly, that in the later times some shall depart from the
faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils(1Tim4:1)
In His second Epistle to Timothy, he offers a gloomy portrait of mankind's religious and moral condition:In the last days perilious times shall come
quote///According to Saint Paul, this will be the time "when people will not endure sound doctrine,
but according to their own desires they will choose teachers who will tell them just what they want to hear.
They will turn their ears away from the truth and go after fables" (2 Tim. 4:3-4). I
Then they will see the Son of Man, coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory, and all His angels with Him … Then He will sit on the
throne of His glory…" (Mt. 24:30, 25:31, Mk. 13:26).
First He came to give His soul for the salvation of many; then He will come to judge the world and recompense everyone according to his deeds. (Acts
17:31; Mt. 24:27).
Islam........do you actually have prophecy on the Mahdi?
Is it in the Koran?
Or is it a prophecy of Muhammad?
Are there any signs of his coming ?
When you say he will come before the Antichrist, how do you know it will be HIM ....?
How are you going to distinguish between the Antichrist and the Madhi?
Ok....sorry my ignorance.....I forgot all about the link you provided.....I will take a look.....
+Glory be to God and His Saints.....
Sorry forgot one important question...
Do you beleive in the two prophets Enoch and Elijah(Elias)?
Do you see these two prophets coming to preach before/or at the same time as the antichrist comes in the world?
