Romans 13:1: Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Another version puts it this way: “Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which is from God. The authorities that exist have been appointed by God.”
The clenched fist is symbolic of a rebellious spirit and anger toward God. It has been a symbol of Communism for decades. It’s the official salute of all Communist parties throughout the world. It has been used by Masons, the Black Panther Movement, Hitler, Hugo Chavez, Nelson Mandela, Students for a Democratic Society and many others. The Chinese saluted Mao Tse-Tung using the clenched fist. Josef Stalin’s daughter said as he lay dying he was plagued with terrifying hallucinations of the judgment to come. He suddenly sat halfway up in bed, clenched his fist toward heaven and fell back on his pillow and was dead. His one last gesture was a clenched fist toward God, his heart as cold and as hard as steel. Sixty six million people perished in Soviet Russia thanks to Stalin and others. Yet the media adores Soviet Russia and casts them in a favorable light, especially Lenin and Marx. What is the destiny of Russia in the Word of God?
Read about it in Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39. Will the Antichrist use a clenched fist? Most fictional books about the Antichrist portray him with a clenched fist. We know he will come in peace at first. But I wouldn’t be surprised if the clenched fist is used at some time during his reign. As we look around we see many end time signs letting us know that Jesus will soon come.
The clenched fist has been adopted by Antifa. Antifa is short for Anti-fascism. But how close the words run: Anti-Christ—Anti-fa. People in this group are radically left. They are socialists, communists and anarchists that reject what they claim is a message of white supremacy coming from the White House.
They are funded by 86 year-old George Soros, a Hungarian Jew who is not only an atheist but has an Anti-Christian agenda. Soros loves to stir up rebellion. He was subject to the concentration camps as a 14 year-old and said he loved the Nazi’s. Soros has referred to himself as a messiah, a god, and the creator of everything. His goal is to become the conscience of the world.
Look around and you will see many types of the Antichrist. The clenched fist has been adopted by many groups, but the saddest thing is to watch it used against our American way of life. To raise your fist in defiance to the police, the military, the flag and government is a sad thing indeed. Even when a political candidate was in the White House that we didn’t like or agree with down through the years we had respect for them and the office. You are raising your fist towards a nation of liberty founded on the Bible, on Christian principles on decency and morality. How long will God put up with a nation of division? I Peter 2:13-17, Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme: or unto governors. As unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evil doers, and for the praise of them that do well. For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: As free, and not using your liberty for a cloak of maliciousness, but as the servants of God. Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king.
Jude 8: Bold, self willed, they do not tremble blaspheming the glorious ones (the heavenly host). Another version: “Those who indulge their fleshly desires and despise authority, brazen and insolent, they are not afraid to insult the glorious ones.” Still another version: “These dreamers defile their bodies, reject authority and slander glorious beings.” Finally the King James Version: Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignitaries. Filthy dreamers—yes, they dream of a world of communism, dictatorship, famine, bread lines and a total breakdown of the world as we know it.
