There is a school of thought that believes that in the near future a charming young personality will take over the entire world with a sinister intention of forcing the population into following a dark path. But, this is only a very cunning deception. The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was to convince the world that he did not exist. Ask yourself, what is that greatest trick the negative polarity of the duality played upon us? One does not have to be a Christian to see the truth that the dark force is already here and has been ruling the world for quite sometime now. We, the mainstream society have been a anti-Christ society all along, for decades if not centuries. How is it so?, you may ask.
Let’s take a look at the concept of antichrist. Antichrist only means, that which is opposite to Christ. Anything, tangible or subtle, that is not in agreeance with the Christ consciousness is antichrist in nature.
As a society, are we operating out of Christ consciousness today? To understand this better and to gain clarity from a neutral perspective, let us take a few examples from the teachings of one of the great masters, the epitome of Christ consciousness, the roman popularized superstar, Jesus of Nazareth. Let us take a look at what Christ conscious way of living is, and see if we even think, speak or live our lives in alignment with the principles. Let us check ourselves as humans and as a society to see if we operate from Christ or antichrist nature.
Jesus said, “Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.” Do we follow that fundamental teaching today? If we did, we would not have had the world wars, deceitful 9/11 terror attack, inhumane Israel occupation of Palestine and massacring people in their own home land, China forcebly taking over Tibet, ruthless dictators and corporations in position of governance and power. If we were really following this fundamental behavioral requirement, we would not have had slavery, poverty, discrimination, hatred, etc. We would not even have had the Jerry Springer show and people relishing the show. Most of the world, on a fundamental basis, does not practice this rule, else we would not be capable of causing harm to others, even to our enemies. It is the easiest thing in the world to hate, to let the desire for revenge grow in people’s hearts. Indeed vengeance may even have the shadow of justice attached to it. Doesn’t that make us an antichrist society?
Jesus said, “Do not commit adultery. But I tell you that anyone who looks at another lustfully has already committed adultery in their heart.” Do we follow this fundamental rule? If we did we would not have had promiscuousness, sexual degeneration, gentlemen’s club, porn stars, illicit relationships, sex scandals in places of power, etc.
Sincerity is one of the virtues needed of anti-adultry. Jesus said, “”Be careful not to do your ‘acts of righteousness’ before men, to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven”. Today, many put up an act of being all good and nice in front of others, but act very differently when there was no-one watching. Politicians and corporations are a great examples of this. They act one way in front of the people and totally do something else that works for the gratification of their selfish motives. They make decisions, rules, regulations and laws out of this antichristic behaviour which eventually becomes tyranny. Most are aware of this, and is accepting of it. Doesn’t that make us an antichrist society?
Jesus said, “Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.” Do we follow this? Black Friday in America, growing materialism in the world, opulant indulgance of super wealthy while the poor go hungry and homeless, etc are only a hand ful of cases that go to show that materialism is given precedence over spiritual growth in the world today. People’s status is measured by their socio-economic position, the car they drive, the clothes they wear, the house they have and the money they possess. Infact, humanity is so brain washed by it’s own creation, ‘money’, that it will kill, plunder, rape, judge, massacre, pillage, discriminate, etc it’s own kind purely for money. Try not paying your electricity bill for few months and see if the corporation will understand your hardship and let you get by? Money has become god. That is a breach of the basic commandment. Doesn’t that make us an antichrist society?
Jesus talked about forgiveness, but do we follow that? If we did we would not have had people losing homes, hate crime retaliations, domestic insecurities, separations, etc.
There are countless teachings based upon which humanity can be analyzed from a consciously honest perspective. Historically, the masters in the likes of Jesus, Kabir, Gautam Buddha, Mohammad, Guru Nanak, Shridi Sai Baba, etc, have taught us about Christ consciousness and the Christic way of living. But, we as humanity labeled those masters as gods (which in reality is true, as every thing and everyone is God), seperated ourselves from them and from each other, prayed to them, while all long we continued going down the same dark path, living an antichristian life assuming it to be righteous. When numerous do it, it becomes acceptable, despite the innate fact that such a way of living is actually against our own conscience. Conscience that gives us total peace of mind in its purity. Lack of peace in the world today portrays the impurity in the our conscience. Doesn’t that make us a antichrist society?
The list is endless.
The greatest trick the antichrist rule ever pulled was convincing the world it is yet to happen.
