The false prophet is the 2nd beast of Rev 13, look at these verses.
Revelation 13:13-14 KJV
(13) And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
(14) And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.


Bringing fire down from heaven looks like Elijah, it is a false Elijah a false prophet.
i would agree this is a close match if there's a literal futurist interpretation Lao.

and there are no shortages of ppl who are expecting a literal Elijah.
or ppl claiming to BE Elijah:rolleyes:


Geoff Neilson has written "7 quick steps proving HWA is the endtime Elijah," that Herbert W. Armstrong was the prophesied individual to come in the power and spirit of Elijah, as taught by the former Worldwide Church of God and still believed by many of the branches of the Sabbath-keeping Church of God.
Was Herbert W. Armstrong Elijah? <click


William "Branham's followers identified him as the prophetic Elijah of Malachi 4 and the seventh angel of Revelation 10"

Prophet Tom Deckard is the last day Elijah (Malachi 4:5)!!
gospel according 2 patrick j miron: Prophet Tom Deckard is the last day Elijah (Malachi 4:5)!! Listen to him...or patrick j miron--Christ hear is speaking to the Apostles and through THEM to today’s CC] < click


ad infinitum...

I see it more as a movement rather than an individual in the future

what's a movement?
there's an Elijah movement?

John the Baptizer 'was Elijah' Jesus said.
we don't need any more prophets...that always means more LAW.

It is the message of Elijah that they have not so much prophets but the message. We need more people to read there Bibles. We have plenty in the Bible.

The message to be given is found in Revelation 14:6-12. Just after they are given is the harvest which is the end of the world.

The gospel it says in Galatians was preached to Abraham. The gospel is about Christ, what He has done for us, is doing for us, and will do for us. Satan always has a counterfeit of the truth to look like the truth in order to deceive people into thinking they are following the truth. If there is a true Satan will have a counterfeit.

the pope is no worse then some of these threads being posted. so how can we say its the pope alone, thats the problem. look how many divisions there are in the church of Christians around the world. the pope is just one person in the corner that no one listens to. God said the whole world is decived and, God never mentions the pope .

i really think it's the Jamesons over on Lake Circle Drive.

i saw lawyers in and out of that place just the other day.
no doubt it was the 7 year peace treaty.

and the oldest son...well.
he for sure is the false prophet.

i've seen him parading around with that tattoo on his forehead.
you know, the daughter is a little "free-spirited", but i'm not going to go out on a limb and say she's the harlot

i'm trying to keep a low profile.

No. But expect a lot of speculation and conspiracy theories from followers of the prophecies of St. Malachy. According to those prophecies (well according to how some folks read them) the Pope after Benedict XVI will take the name Peter the Roman (leading those same folks to think the next Pope will be Italian).

Ironically these prophecies are often promulgated by people that believe the Pope is the antichrist, but the last Pope is supposed to lead the Holy Roman Church (Malachy's words) through persecution in the end times. Here's the last line in the prophecies about Peter the Roman:

"In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign Peter the Roman, who will feed his flock amid many tribulations, after which the seven-hilled city will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people. The End."
It all has to do with the seer St Malachy who had a vision when visiting Rome, regarding the Popes leading up to the return of Christ. It is quite interesting to note that the prophecy regarding all previous Popes have stood up to scrutiny. The next Pope is callef Petrus Romanus or Peter the Roman and is the last Pope before Christ return.
Next pope will be Cardinal Angelo Scola.
If the Prophecy of Malachi is correct.
You heard it here first :)
Soooo... How about them false prophets?
