How Do You Tell the Difference Between an Alcoholic and a Drunkard?

The Voice of Elijah®, January 1999

Excerpt From Newsletter

Now I can’t help but wonder how all of that parabolic imagery pertains to the “Elijah” who the Early Church Fathers tell us will come heralding the Second Coming of Jesus Christ and the Resurrection of the Body of Jesus Christ. (See The AntiChrist.) Could it be that he—like the Prophet Elijah—will disclose the folly of all those in our own time who ignorantly believe in a false god just because they have been told he is the god of the resurrection?

In the parable He told about the wise man and the fool, Jesus Himself said a parabolic “rain” would destroy the “house” of the Antichrist after it has been “built.” And we already know that the Antichrist is going to pretend to be Jesus Christ—“The House” of Israel. (See “That’s Why He’s Called AntiChrist!” The Voice of Elijah®, April 1992.) So is it conceivable that some anonymous “Elijah” might actually bring down a parabolic “rain” that ultimately destroys the “house” the Antichrist has “built” for himself? Perhaps. But perhaps I expect too much. How could anyone reasonably expect fools to be able to tell the difference between the Antichrist and Jesus Christ?

You do know that Christ is the One Who will come riding on the clouds, bringing a torrential “rain,” just as the prophets of Baal claimed their fake god Baal did, don’t you? Maybe not. Just for the record, I should tell you that is what Jesus was talking about when He said this:

“But immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken, and then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the son of man coming on the clouds of the sky with power and great glory. And He will send forth His angels with a great trumpet and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other.”
(Matthew 24:29–31)
