Hope for only SOME Nations?

Is the Good News of the Kingdom of God a message for only SOME nations, or for all?  Often in church history, the gospel has been perverted into good news for some nations, but bad news for others. This occurs whenever representatives of the “church” associate Christ’s message with specific nations, races, cultures, and political systems. Unfortunately, this has been an all-too-common pattern in church history - [ Earth - Photo by Greg Rosenke on Unsplash ].

Spirit of Antichrist

The Antichrist is a deceiver intent on destroying the church through deception, apostasy, and if necessary, persecution .  In many interpretations, the  Antichrist  is a global political leader bent on world domination. In the end, that may be the case. However, Jesus and the Apostles expressed far more concern about the many  deceivers that would practice their trade within the church . For that matter, in passages about the  Antichrist , the concern is about his deceptions that target believers - [ Photo by Pierre Bamin on Unsplash ].
