Please note: My Father, S.R. Shearer, wrote this article just before the election in 2016. The article describes how closely Trump's personalities correlates to Biblical verses that describes who the antiChrist will be in the last days. So the article is still relevate today.

Who is the AntiChrist?




"And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:
"And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
"And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled." (Revelation 6:9-11)


I continue to receive numerous letters from our readers all over the world questioning my decision to publically bear WITNESS to what my conscience and the Scriptures are plainly telling me: that Trump is the antiChrist prophesied in the Scripture - the "MAN OF SIN" whose "COMING" will set the world on fire; that he is in fact what the Scriptures say he is -

And, finally,

In the light of these Scriptures, I implore you (if only for your sake) to answer OBJECTIVELY the following questions, and then attempt to say otherwise – ie., that Trump is not the antiChrist:

Trump as the king of Babylon
Trump as the king of Babylon

German Christians WANTED to believe in Hitler just as American Christians WANT to believe in TRUMP. As a result, American Christians have opened themselves up to the same kind of DECEPTION that has forever destroyed the testimony of the German church.

Cursed be above all others
Who's enslaved by love of money.
Money takes the place of brothers.
Money takes the place of parents.
Money brings us war and slaughter
Christians who have long ago been compromised by the love of money.

[Bear in mind what the Scripture says about those who want to be rich: "But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil ..." (I Timothy 6:9-10). What's that say about Trump?]

Are all these descriptors not enough to convince one that Trump is indeed the "MAN OF SIN?"

ONE WOULD THINK THAT THEY ARE MORE THAN ENOUGH!! In a court of law - in a criminal prosecution – it certainly would be.

Why is it, then ----- IF it is so obvious, at least from a Scriptural standpoint, that Donald Trump is the MAN OF SIN --–- that the leadership of today's church (and, indeed, much of the church's "rank and file") seem inclined to dismiss all this evidence?

The answer is that it does not fit the warped "end-time" scenario the leadership of today's church is attempting to "palm off" on the church; a scenario that pictures the antiChrist coming out of Europe, and portrays the U.S. in a state of prophetic limbo, sitting the "game" out on the sidelines while a re-united Europe magically steps to the forefront in world affairs despite the fact that it possesses neither the military muscle nor the economic power to do so. It's ridiculous. [Please see Letter #12, "Europe's Nightmare."]

To believe that Europe can catch up militarily with the United States is just plain stupid – and reveals how ignorant American Christians are regarding the REAL world.

Christians who recognize who Trump is, but are too fearful to speak out.

Nonetheless, that is pretty much the scenario the leadership of today's church is trying to foist off on its constituency – a constituency that for the most part appears more than willing to accept the lies that are being inflicted upon it --– AND WE SPEAK HERE NOT SO MUCH ABOUT THOSE CHURCHES AND LEADERS THAT ARE TRULY DECEIVED, LEADERS SUCH AS Jack Hayford, Charles Stanley, the late D. James Kennedy, Tim LaHaye, the late John  Wimber, Juan Carlos Ortiz, C. Peter Wagner, Beverley LaHaye, Ern Baxter, Kenneth Copeland, Kenneth Hagin, Oral Roberts, Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell, Chuck Colson, David Yonggi Cho, Robert Stearns, Mike Bickle, Reuven Doron, Che Ahn, Frank Hammond, Cindy Jacobs, Bill Hamon, John Eckhardt, Bobbie Byerly, Dutch Sheets, Jim Goll, John Paul Jackson, James Ryle, Frank Damazio, Ed Silvoso, Carlos Annacondia, Claudio Freidzon, Roger Mitchell, Ted Haggart, Paul Cain, Chuck Pierce, Rick Joyner, Kingsley Fletcher, Jim Laffoon, Barbara Wentroble, ad infinitum ---- BUT LEADERS WHO RECOGNIZE WHAT Trump IS DOING, BUT WHO ARE TOO TIMID OR AFRAID TO SAY ANYTHING. [Please see Chapter XIV of the New Antipas Papers, "The Great Falling Away."]

Christians who recognize who Trump is, but are too fearful to speak out.

And there is something more to be remarked upon here insofar as the attitude of most Christians toward those fellow-Christians who would dare to WITNESS to the fact that Trump has nothing to do with God: Jesus said that THEY WILL BE RUTHLESSLY ATTACKED BY SO-CALLED "FELLOW-BELIEVERS."  Jesus spoke directly to this fact when He warned His disciples that they (ie., "they" meaning so-called "fellow-believers") will -

"... SCOURGE you in their synagogues [churches] ...  [and some they will put to death]." (Matthew 10:17)

"They will deliver you up to [Christian] councils [boards of elders]. And they will scourge you in their synagogues [churches] ... and some they will put to death ..." (Matthew 10:17)

Victoria J. Barnett, director of the Holocaust Museum's Programs on Ethics and Religion, writes:

"Throughout the Nazi era, ardent debates took place within the German Churches about ... [the evil that the Hitler regime was foisting on the church] – ie., when to speak out and when to remain silent ..." 


"For the most part German Christians chose to remain silent – a failure of the heart; a failure of their Christian conscience"

For the most part they chose to remain silent – a failure of the heart; a failure of will; a failure of their Christian conscience!

She continues:

"At the heart of those failures was the fact that the churches ... sought to act, as institutions tend to do, in their own SELF-INTEREST rather then in the interest of the truth they had been called upon by God to guard."

"There was little desire on the part of the Churches for self-sacrifice or heroism, and much emphasis on "pragmatic" and "strategic" measures that would supposedly protect these institutions' autonomy in the Third Reich. Public institutional circumspection carried to the point of near numbness; an acute lack of insight: these are the aspects of the churches' behavior during the Nazi era that are so damning in retrospect.

"The minutes of German Protestant synodal meetings in 1942 reveal how numb the participants were to what was happening ... around them. While innocent victims throughout Germany were being brutally murdered, Christian leaders were debating what points of doctrine and policy were tenable ...  

"... Even the wisest and most perceptive of these Christians, it seems, failed to develop adequate moral and political responses to Nazi genocide; WHO FAILED TO RECOGNIZE THAT SOMETHING NEW WAS DEMANDED OF THEM by the barbarism of Hitler's regime.

"Moreover, it has become abundantly clear that their failure to respond to the horrid events in Europe in the Thirties and Forties was not due to ignorance; THEY KNEW WHAT WAS HAPPENING."

At the heart of the failure of today's church to take a stand against the pretensions of Donald Trump is the fact that their own SELF-interest as institutions demand that they remain silent; but by remaining silent and preserving themselves as institutions they are being forced to sacrifice the "treasure" (as it were) that gave them significance in the first place: the TRUTH that the church was created (so to speak) to protect.

Add to this the fact that Christians in America possess little desire for SELF-sacrifice. The truth is, "SELF" is at the heart of today's Christianity; to sacrifice "SELF" in this environment is akin to betraying the messages on "SELF" that preachers such as Joel Osteen have been thrusting on the church. For example, in an interview with Pierce Morgan concerning the wealth he and his wife had amassed over the years, Osteen remarked, "I don't ever feel guilty because it comes from [God] – it's God's blessing on my life."


To such so-called Christians, the truth contained in verses such as Romans 8:35-39 have no bearing on the "here and now;" indeed, they act as if such verses have been erased from the Bible or – at the very least - explained away by the leaders of today's apostate church.

However, for those Christians who are willing to speak the truth, they can take comfort from Romans 8:35-39 and the many, many other verses like it:

"... who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

"As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

"Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

"For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

"Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 8:35-39)

It is in the light of verses such as those listed above that we urge you to begin speaking out publically against Trump.
