    How do you know the difference between the False Christ and the Real Christ?

    As Christians we believe a false Messiah will arrive before the Real Deal, but how can we tell the difference between the two. Satan will be copying Christ to a T... but what will Satan be missing that Christ is? What quality will Christ have that Satan will not be able to copy?

    I can't answer that question and with over 100 billion people that existed over recorded history, and 7 billion living today, nothing has changed. AD only changed the calendar but not the people. They are still the same as when they were first recorded.

    The evil acts that we see people do today, are just variations of the evil acts cited at the beginning of humans on earth.

    People wrote the bibles, and they rewrote religion to suit themselves.. There was no divine providence making protestants out of Catholics. The Jews didn't change when AD happened, and they were there at the time. The bibles were not written contemporaneous with the events. It wasn't until the printing press was invented that so many people were reading the bibles.

    So there is little difference between the bibleS, and other fairy tales, or folk tales.

    There isn't any further deviations of humans that are capable, over recorded history we have seen all sides of humans.

      And is "precisely" why we need THE HOLY SPIRIT to "HELP" us since "man" has chgd Scriptures! 
      The HOLY SPIRIT "..will lead & guide us into ALL truth" (Jn 14:26; 16:13)!

      Norine, you CAN'T keep quoting scriptures when even YOU believe they have been changed. I'd guess you are at a place many of us have been - and are beginning to doubt; but you're clinging onto what you know for dear life bc its too scary to let go.

      The "great falling away" or apostacy is also a sign of the end-times. Many who once knew the Lord are now denying Him.

    As you know, Christ uses individuals as “vessels,” unfortunately, Satan does too! 

    “The quality that Christ will have that Satan will not be able to copy,” is those who are “treated” as Christ in Scripture!

    John 15:18-19 says “If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. (v19) If you were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.” Therefore, when you see the world agreeing with everything the false Messiah is saying:  BEWARE!   

    Isaiah 5:20 says “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”  ALL Scripture will be fulfilled and the anti-Christ (false Messiah) NOW is through “twisted” Religion!

    Again, ALL Scripture will be fulfilled!  The Scripture that applies in which Isaiah 5:20 is fulfilled is John 16:1-4 which says, (v1) “These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended. (v2) They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you WILL THINK THAT HE DOETH GOD SERVICE, (v3) And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.  (v4) But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them.  And these things I said unto you at the beginning, because I was with you.”     

    If one is “loved by the world,” – BEWARE!  However, if Christ-like, John 15:19 says {paraphrasing) “You will be hated by all men!” 

    BTW:  Love your picture! 

    TRUTH!!!

    Simple the false Christ/Satan is the good guy. The real Christ is evil.

    John 4:1-3 [Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this, you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already.]

    In another word, according to the teaching of Christ, everything that is not from Christ, contradict Christ or not subject to Christ is an antichrist, which the bible accused of been false, lies, evil and demonic. So, if I say the earth is over 5000 years old, that make me an antichrist, unless u went to a Catholic school, every teacher you have either in primary school, high school or university, is an antichrist, which the bible accused of been evil, lies and demonic. Science, philosophy and other religion not subject to Christ, is also antichrist, which Christ accused of been evil.

    Christ/bible claim itself to be the symbol of good and the others as the symbol of evil, but u think about it, that isn't true and frequently it is the opposite way around eg the bible teach.

    Deuteronomy 22:20-22 [But if the thing is true, that evidence of virginity was not found in the young woman, then they shall bring out the young woman to the door of her father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her to death with stones, because she has done an outrageous thing in Israel by whoring in her father's house.] But, what is so evil about not been a virgin? Even if she is a slut, what is wrong with it, u know how many sluts did great things? Helen the Great, one of Russia's greatest ruler is a well-known slut. And isn't the teaching of killing non-virgin the real evil here? Thus, when we speak of Human right, it qualifies as an antichrist, because it contradicts this bible teaching, but what is so evil about human right? And isn't the human right, the real good here?

    To make it worse the bible teaches

    Proverbs 3:5-6 [ Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.] So, to make it worse, the bible teach these evil value, to be the "right path" and all else is evil and teach only to follow its problematic teaching and follow nothing else

    The deception of the coming days will be so extraordinary that unless we, as Christians, have taken up our cross and died to the passions of the flesh ("take up your cross DAILY") and been sanctified by Christ's continuing work in our lives, we absolutely won't be able to tell the difference between the lie and the truth.  It seems as though it should be simple to tell the difference, but scripture tells us that the lie is of exceptional nature, (supernatural), that Christians who haven't had Christ's character worked into them by active cooperation with the Holy Spirit, will be very much at risk of buying into the lie and believing in a false Christ.

    I love this question.

    When I saw God, I was given the book of Galatians & 1st Peter. I will quote 1st Peter 1: 3-5 from the Good News Bible

    "Let us give thanks to the God and father of our Lord Jesus Christ! Because of his great mercy he gave us new life by raising Jesus Christ from death.  This fills us with a living hope, and so we look forward to possessing the rich blessings that God keeps for his people. He keeps them for you in heaven, where they cannot decay or spoil or fade away.  They are for you, who through faith are kept safe by God's power for the salvation which is ready to be revealed at the end of time."

    He also showed me Mark 9 verse 1; (Good News Bible)

    And he went on to say, "I tell you, there are some here who will not die until they have seen the Kingdom of God come with power."

    (This means that the second coming of Christ has already taken place).

    It is very easy to tell the difference between a false Christ and the real Christ. There have already been many false Messiahs who have fooled people into believing they were the true Messiah. (e.g Jim Jones, David Koresh, etc)  However, neither of them could walk on water.  Neither of them could feed a crowd with one loaf of bread and one fish.  Neither of them could raise somebody from the dead.  How do you tell when anybody is who they say they are? You can tell through actions.  Jesus not only proclaimed he was the son of God.  He showed it through his actions.  Has any of the current false Christs been able to do the things that the real Christ did? No.

    This is a question that really brings out the diversity in Christian beliefs - aside from non-christian ones. Roman Catholics believe only in councils approved by the Vatican; and the Greek Catholics believe only in those approved in Constantinople. Protestants deride them both [even though their religion would not exist without them]. Voltaire (1694-1778)

    The probability is... that IF someone claiming to be Jesus Christ comes though the clouds or whatever just like it has been written and accepted in the bible by Christians; THAT is probably going to be the guy to stay away from - because they wrote the bible so that followers would run to him. They have already done everything they can to 'tune' believers into him - whether 'he' actually exists, or not. Fear is a powerful manipulator and motivator.

    If this deception takes place, most Christians will be fooled - and you're going to end up doing what you always do; which is to INSIST that you are right and try to drag the rest of us along with you. The world will probably be dealing with whatever this 'evil' is bringing down; ON TOP OF dealing with a bunch of Christians who have gone into a frenzy.

    Stop 'escaping' into delusions to connect with God. Christ TOLD us that the Kingdom of God is WITHIN. Stay present and in the moment with all of your intentions, attention and energy - that is how you 'connect' with the 'cristos' part of you. That was Christ's original message - that we are just like him; NOT that he was going to 'save' us from our 'sins'. In this way, you are closest to God; and you will know what you need to know when you need to know it - whatever 'it' is.

    Staying present in the moment is a muscle that few people excercise; but it can be built up to bring about amazing transformations within people.

    This works for more than just apocalypses. smile

    Re: The Above:
    In order to bring some light on that question, it's a good idea to refer to Matthew 7: 15-20.
                                     ''THE FALSE PROPHETS''
    With that said, I hope the words of Matthew will help you to understand of what you're looking for!  ''Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but who within are rapacious wolves. You will recognize them from their fruits. Surely! men do not gather grapes from thorns; and figs from thistles? So, every good tree produces fine fruits; but every rotten tree produces bad fruit. A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a rotten tree produces fine fruit. Every tree which does not produces fine fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. So then, you will recognize them from their fruits.
    There were false prophets in the ancient days, but there were also false prophets in New Testament times. Matthew was written about A.D. 85, and at that time prophets were still an institution in the Church. They were men with no fixed abode, men who had given up everything to wander throughout the country, bringing to the Churches a message which they believed to come direct from God. Thank you!
