I have recently started reading a book by Eastern Orthodox writer G. M. Davis called ‘Antichrist – The Fulfillment of Globalization‘. It’s a chunky thug at nearly 400 pages, and it’s so insightful from what I’ve read so far that it forces me to put the book down for a while to ponder the ramifications and claims I am reading.

The chapter headings alone are fascinating, especially the sub-headings. But for the sake of space and maybe a little bit of mystery, here are the main headings:

Introduction: The Spirit of the Times

Part I: The Fulfillment of Globalization

Chapter 1: Who is the Antichrist

Chapter 2: The Principles of Globalization

Part II: History and the Church

Chapter 3: The Christian Revolution

Chapter 4: Gnosticism and the Rise of the West

Chapter 5: A Brief History of Antichristianity

Part III: The Age of Confusion

Chapter 6: The Globalization of Economics

Chapter 7: The Globalization of Politics

Chapter 8: The Globalization of Religion

Chapter 9: The Empire of the Pharisees

Conclusion: The Shape of Things to Come

Here’s a snippet from the first chapter:

“One of the greatest errors found in the heterodox West is its persistent treatment of evil as an abstract or disembodied force….To imagine that Satan and the demons constitute a vague, abstract negativity of some kind is to misunderstand wildly the danger they pose to man and the nature of spiritual warfare. We are not dealing with a mindless force capable of doing us harm like the weather; rather we are engaged in mortal combat (“unseen warfare”) with a rational intelligence of several millenia’s experience who neither sleeps nor eats, but labours night and day to lead us into deception and eternal destruction. It is this personal intelligence that will assume control of the person of Antichrist and, save for a miracle of God, lead the mass of the world to destruction at the end of time….

Antichrist is often thought of as a great villain, a monster tyrant who will bring misery, oppression and despair to the world, a ruthless dictator and warmonger in the vein of Hitler or Stalin, who will desolate the nations of the earth…..While he will bring the most comprehensive tyranny in history, his appearance to the world will be, at least for a time, as a true Christian: loving, forgiving, speaking truth to power, not suffering injustice….Cyril of Jerusalem (AD 386) explains:

“At first he will put on a show of mildness (as though he were a learned and discreet person), and of soberness and benevolence; and by the lying signs and wonders of his magical deceit having beguiled the Jews, as though he were the expected Christ, he shall afterwards be characterized by all kinds of crimes of inhumanity and lawlessness, so as to outdo all righteous and ungodly men who have gone before him; displaying against all men, but especially against us Christians, a spirit murderous and most cruel, merciless and crafty.”

Davis goes on,

“It is worth recalling that many of history’s most destructive personalities, paricularly those who have appeared in modern circumstances such as Napoleon, Lenin, and Hitler managed to depict themselves as champions of the people. We must not think that we are immune to the charms, tricks, and threats of such political opportunists who aspire to supreme power. The demagogues of the modern era are harbingers of the ultimate demagogue. Antichrist’s arrival will be the crowning of a process of heresy, apostasy, and sin that has been at work throughout the course of human history, and which has gained special momentum in our time.”
