Antichrist in Hollywood: 4400

After watching 3 seasons of "The 4400" I was distressed to see yet another antichrist in Hollywood drama.
Obviously a take on the 144000 of Revelation the show spins up an array of supernatural people set to rule the world by force.  Their leader is Jordan Collier (note 'JC'), who, as predicted in the Bible, gets killed and comes back to life.  His new image is exactly the type of fraud people will fall for, beard and long hair.  The only problem is, Mr. Collier is a lawless man.  He is a fornicator, as established in the first season.  He lies.  He is a murderer.  He is a thief.  He also charges money for one of his proteges to heal the sick.  He also lives an opulent lifestyle and has political ambitions.  The show is clearly trying to prepare those who are unfamiliar with Scripture for such an antichrist...

Sadly people will fall for this type of superficial presentation.  There is a former traffic policeman from Russia who has tens of thousands of followers in Siberia, his main claim to fame, apparently just the 'look' - beard, long hair and a robe.  Scripture warns many false prophets will come in the end, even claiming to be Messiah.  But He will come as lightning in the sky, and we are not to seek him in secret rooms, or in the desert.  The dead will rise when Jesus returns.
