"Are the Actual (Final) End-Times Upon us? Is Biden the Final Anti-Christ? And more importantly, is Donald the Final Katechon?"
Today, Ianto Watt who authored "The Barbarian Bible: The True History of Man Since the Fall" wrote "That [biblical] word is also Greek in origin. It is Katechon. It means one who restrains. The one who holds back. Holds back what? Simple. The appearance of the Anti-Christ... Are the actual (final) end-times upon us? Is Biden the final Anti-Christ? And more importantly, is Donald the final Katechon?":
Let’s look at the third word. A word which is relatively unknown, but whose presence is widely felt. That [biblical] word is also Greek in origin. It is Katechon. It means one who restrains. The one who holds back. Holds back what? Simple. The appearance of the Anti-Christ. You’ll find it used in II Thessalonians. In reference to the coming Apocalypse—the Great Unveiling.
We are now at the point of discernment. Who is the Anti-Christ? Well, if I named him, I would be wrong, automatically. Why? Because we are told, no one will know him before his arrival. Let’s assume that is true. But let us also acknowledge that there will be many precursors of him. In which case, a question arises. If there is a lesser-someone who advances the agenda of the ultimate Anti-Christ, and no one currently resists the lesser-one’s unveiling, is it possible that the agenda of the this Dark One might advance to earlier fruition?
Yes, a silly question. But remember the Wedding Feast at Cana? Where Jesus replied to his mother’s plea (on behalf of the hapless wedding couple found without wine), ‘Woman, what is this to me and thee? My time is not yet come’. Yet, He did as she wished. He moved up his timetable. Which, by the way, simply added to His glory. And hers too, if you’re smart enough to notice.
If Jesus could allow his mother’s plea to move time, and the Anti-Christ is the perfect knock-off of the original, hey, why not? Especially if no one stands in your way to the cookie jar. After all, we know there is an end-game, correct?
So then, we know that we cannot know the exact personage of the Anti-Christ. Does this also apply to the Katechon? The one who restrains. The last roadblock to the ultimate and visible appearance of the Anti-Christ. Interesting question, eh?
Let’s be clear. There have been many pre-figurements of the Anti-Christ. Nero, Diocletian, Justin the Apostate, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, just to name a few. Just as there were precursors of The Christ. Abraham, Moses, Joshua, David, again, to name a few. History is simply the repetition of these dual appearances, giving notice to each generation of their responsibility to make their own choice of allegiance. We all do. Or don’t. Woe unto the lukewarm. Their fate is most pitiable.
Where does this leave us? Are the actual (final) end-times upon us? Is Biden the final Anti-Christ? And more importantly, is Donald the final Katechon? I think the second question I have posed is more important to us than the first. For while it is extremely hard to imagine Joe Biden as the most cunning member of the Tribe of Dan ever to live, it is not hard at all to see Donald as the final nemesis of whoever that might be.
In the absence of any effective resistance to what Biden would truly allow (and the one who might immediately follow him), Donald may very well be the last appearance of the Katechon. And the true and genuine Anti-Christ may, in imitation of the real Christ, move before his scheduled time. Prideful as he is, he may have a hard time resisting that temptation. Will this be The Last temptation of the Anti-Christ?
So then, my fellow man, remember that we all must die. Regardless of whether Biden is the immediate precursor of the Apocalypse, or whether Donald is the last Katechon, the final question of life, every life, is this: did you resist the unveiled evil? Were you a Katechon in your own right? Are you unsure? Let me help you then. Here’s how you will be known for all eternity?

Is Watt saying that Biden might be acting in the spirit of the Antichrist?
Is there another world leader who might be acting in the spirit of the Antichrist?
On May 7, 2018, Netherlands Cardinal
Willem Jacobus Eijk apparently implied that Francis may be acting in the
spirit of the Antichrist. Eijk said:
"Observing that the bishops and, above all, the Successor of Peter fail to maintain and transmit faithfully and in unity the deposit of faith... I cannot help but think of Article 675 of the Catechism of the Catholic Church:
'The Church's ultimate trial
Before Christ's second coming... will unveil the 'mystery of iniquity' in the form of religious deception... apostasy from the truth.'" (National Catholic Register, "Cardinal Eijk: Pope Francis Needed to Give Clarity on Intercommunion," May 7, 2017)
Moreover, Dr. Ed Mazza in his argument that Pope Benedict XVI relinquished the power of the Bishop of Rome while remaining the pope (the Successor of Peter) is mirroring and quoting Antonio Socci's "opposition to the advance of the Antichrist" thesis.
Mazza quotes a July 27, 2017 article of attorney Chris Ferrara in which the lawyer quotes Socci.
He appears to be saying Benedict XVI by relinquishing the power of the Bishop of Rome while remaining the pope may have brought about the biblical prophecy involving the Greek word "Katechon" from St. Paul's 2 Thessalonians 2:7 that means the restrainer who holds back the spirit of the Antichrist has stopped restraining. Mazza read the article as follows:
"The always insightful and often surprising Antonio Socci has just published a piece (translation mine) concerning a little-known but immensely explosive essay by the Italian philosopher Massimo Cacciari, given one month after Benedict XVI’s mysterious renunciation of 'the ministry of Bishop of Rome, Successor of Saint Peter… in such a way, that… the See of Saint Peter, will be vacant…'”
Alluding to the title of the book Attack on Ratzinger, written three years before Benedict’s “resignation,” Socci suggests that the attack on Benedict XVI, the “rejected rock” (of Peter), which culminated in his abdication, is part of “the final attack on the Catholic Church by the antichristian powers and ideologies of this world.”
"Cacciari, Socci continues, calls the Church over which Benedict presided the Kathécon, a Greek word which appears in Saint Paul’s Second Letter to the Thessalonians, meaning the great sign of opposition to the advance of the Antichrist, which has the power to 'put the brakes' on that advance. Cacciari maintains that Pope Benedict renounced the 'ministry of the Bishop of Rome' because he was convinced that 'he could no longer succeed in containing the powers of Antichrist within the Catholic Church. As Saint Augustine said, antichrists are in each of us. This is a key to the decision by Ratzinger, if we want to view it in all its seriousness. His decision is of one piece with the crisis of politics, of the power that brakes [the advance of Antichrist].'”
"Socci concludes that with Benedict’s renunciation, it would appear that 'the Church as Kathécon, that is, as the power that arrests [the Antichrist’s advance], was totally dissolved. Giving the impression of being recruited as a draft horse for the chariot of the Antichrist’s power.' This situation, says Socci:
'[S]ignals that we live in a ‘grandiose,’ that is, apocalyptic, time.'"
((Taylor Marshall Show, "Is Pope Benedict XVI still (but Francis is Bishop of Rome?) Mazza Thesis Revisited," starting at 1:29:29 and "Socci Drops Another Payload, "by Christopher A. Ferrara, July 26, 2017: http://motheofgod.com/threads/bxvi-could-no-longer-contain-the-antichrist.11007/)
Furthermore, on the last page of his book "The Secret of Benedict XV," Socci's "careful analysis" of the lack of Benedict XVI's "resignation... validity" brings him to the conclusion that we must:
"United to Pope Benedict."
In Twitter on July 26, Socci wrote:
"Bergoglio... is dismantling the Catholic Church."
The world renowned Fatima expert Socci at the end of the book revealed that a little known "document" quotes Fatima Seer Jacinta Marto "speaking about":
"[T]he 'end of the world' if people 'do not do penance and change their lives.'"
(The Secret of Benedict XVI, Page 152)
Are Cardinal Eijk, Socci and Mazza saying that Francis might be acting in the spirit of the Antichrist?
The publisher of the Catholic Monitor has made a pledge to say the
Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary everyday for a Rosary Lepanto-like
victory for President Trump. He asks all CM readers to make this pledge.
"THE HOLY ROSARY, MOST POWERFUL WEAPON AGAINST THE ENEMY OF GOD AND MAN... Saint Pius V ordered the faithful to recite the Rosary to impetrate victory from God in the epic battle of the Christian Armada against the Turk in the waters of Lepanto: still today, at noon each day, the bells ring in our cities to recall [the victory of] October 7, 1571... Let us pray for the United States of America; let us pray for our President; let us pray for his victory, that the Lord God of Hosts – Dominus Deus Sabaoth –will grant that he may know how to place himself under God’s protection." - Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò
Pray an Our Father now for the grace to know God's Will and to do it.
Pray an Our Father now for President Donald Trump, the legal teams including Sidney Powell and justice in the United States of America.
Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church as well as the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Note: Please put your family, the United States of America, President Donald Trump and the Trump legal team as the intentions in the following Prayer of Command:
Prayer of Command
A Prayer for Deliverance Of President Donald Trump from Enemies
Based on A Psalm of David.
Contend, O Lord, with those who contend with President Donald Trump;
fight against those who fight against him!
Take hold of shield and buckler,
and rise for his help!
Draw the spear and javelin
against his pursuers!
Say to his soul,
“I am your deliverance!”
Let them be put to shame and dishonor
who seek after his life!
Let them be turned back and confounded
who devise evil against him!
Let them be like chaff before the wind,
with the angel of the Lord driving them on!
Let their way be dark and slippery,
with the angel of the Lord pursuing them!
For without cause they hid their net for him;
without cause they dug a pit[a] for his life.
Let ruin come upon them unawares!
And let the net which they hid ensnare them;
let them fall therein to ruin!
Then his soul shall rejoice in the Lord,
exulting in his deliverance.
All his bones shall say,
“O Lord, who is like thee,
thou who delivers the weak
from those who are too strong for him,
the weak and needy from him who despoils him?”
Malicious witnesses rise up;
they accuse him of things that he knows not.
They requite him evil for good.
But at his stumbling they gathered in glee,
they gathered together against him;
cripples whom he knew not
slandered him without ceasing;
they impiously mocked more and more,[c]
gnashing at him with their teeth.
How long, O Lord, wilt thou look on?
Rescue him from the ravages
from the lions!
Then I will thank thee in the great congregation;
in the mighty throng I will praise thee.
Let not those rejoice over him
who are wrongfully his foes,
and let not those wink the eye
who hate him without cause.
For they do not speak peace,
but against those who are quiet in the land
they conceive words of deceit.
They open wide their mouths against him;
they say, “Aha, Aha!
our eyes have seen it!”
Thou hast seen, O Lord; be not silent!
O Lord, be not far from him!
Bestir thyself, and awake for his right,
for his cause, my God and my Lord!
Vindicate him, O Lord, my God, according to thy righteousness;
and let them not rejoice over him!
Let them not say to themselves,
“Aha, we have our heart’s desire!”
Let them not say, “We have swallowed him up.”
Let them be put to shame and confusion altogether
who rejoice at his calamity!
Let them be clothed with shame and dishonor
who magnify themselves against him!
Let those who desire his vindication
shout for joy and be glad,
and say evermore,
“Great is the Lord,
who delights in the welfare of his servant!”
Then my tongue shall tell of thy righteousness
and of thy praise all the day long.
– Bishop Rene Henry Gracida
