Replacement theology is at the very heart of antichrist. Though the term, Antichrist is generally connected to Christianity, it is none the less a doctrine against ALL things godly. This doctrine shows itself in subtle ways and in the very obvious. One of the more subtle ways was when translators changed the names of virtually every person and place in the Hebrew and Christian Bibles. There are no Greek or English equivalents to any Hebrew name. So, it is not like calling a man whose name is Robert, Roberto. The actual reason behind changing every proper noun in the Christian Bible was to make it a lot less Jewish. Changing the Greek word, (ek-klei-sia) [congregation], to church; as well as changing the word, (Su-na-go-gein) [Synagogue], to assembly and almost every (Y’-hu-dit) [Jewish] name to a Greek/Latin, or Greek/Latin sounding name, helped to bolster the idea that this new, Western religion was far superior to the old, flawed religion of the blinded (Y’-hu-dim) [Jews] who did not hesitate to murder the (Ma-shi-akh) [Messiah].
If God’s name is (Yah-veh), antichrist says, Do not say His name at all, or call Him Adonai, haShem, Yahweh or Jehovah. If God gives us a Law to live by, antichrist tells us that the written Law is trumped by the oral, or that it passed away and was replaced by grace. If the (Tal-mu-dim) [disciples] taught that we should live according to the (To-rah), antichrist translates their words to say the Law is legalistic and full of bondage. If God never changes, antichrist tells us that the God of the Old Testament [of the Jews] was a jealous, petty murder while the God of the New Testament [of the Christians] was full of love and grace. If there is only one God, antichrist tells us that God exists as three, separate but distinct persons living in unity as one. If God gave us His word in Hebrew, antichrist will tell us that He gave His word in Greek and/or translations are better.
Much Luv and Shalom,
