The rise of a man from Greece has been getting a lot of attention in the prophecy community recently.  Terry lays out some interesting additional connections that I had not heard before.  Good article…

It’s Deja Vu All Over Again

by Terry James

My favorite philosopher, Yogi Berra, who provides the world such profundities as “If you don’t go to other people’s funerals, they won’t go to yours,” issued the most famous of all in 1961, after watching Roger Maris and Mickey Mantle hit back-to-back home runs. “It’s Deja Vu all over again!”

I’m getting a sense similar to that Yogi must have felt upon watching his teammates hit all those homers that year. Only, the feeling isn’t so exhilarating as I’m sure was Yogi’s experience. As a matter of fact, the sense is ominous–one of history repeating as the stage for the fulfilling of prophecy is being set by the grand deceiver of humankind.

My view of that earlier era, of course, is through the prism of the study of history. I wasn’t quite on the scene as yet when it took place. I’m referring to the time when Adolf Hitler was on the rise and made a pact with his nemesis to his east, Josef Stalin, the Soviet dictator. The German and Soviet tyrants signed the German-Soviet Nonaggression Pact in August, 1939. Hitler roped in his bitter enemy in convincing him to sign in order that the Fuhrer not have to worry about being opposed by the Soviets in his assault on Poland. Stalin wanted to make sure his Soviet Empire was free from war in order to build his military into the powerful war-making machine it would one day become.

The deja vu comes into the picture for our purposes in this commentary in thinking upon recent developments taking place between the new Greek prime minister, Alexis Tsipras, and Russian President Vladimir Putin. It is a most fascinating deja vu, to be sure. And, again, it is one that is ominous.

There is being much made in recent days of the similarities between Alexis Tsipras and the Bible’s description of the person who will be Antichrist. I agree with most of the comparisons. They are striking in some instances. However, there have been many striking comparisons to world leaders throughout the centuries to what the Word of God says about that Son of Perdition.

Adolf Hitler was, as most everyone who knows anything about the Biblical description of Antichrist understands, a dictator who seemed to fill the bill as the first beast of Revelation in many ways. The German Fuhrer came and went, however, and the world yet wags on toward its fate, the last seven years of which will be ruled to great extent by the actual Antichrist. (more…)
