A Christian militia group called the Hutaree, which was raided by the FBI over the weekend, said on its website (now offline) that it was preparing for the Antichrist.

“Jesus wanted us to be ready to defend ourselves using the sword and stay alive using equipment,” Hutaree.com reads. “The only thing on earth to save the testimony and those who follow it, are the members of the testimony, til the return of Christ in the clouds. We, the Hutaree, are prepared to defend all those who belong to Christ and save those who aren’t. We will still spread the word, and fight to keep it, up to the time of the great coming.”

Law enforcement officials had reason to believe the group was planning attacks on authorities as a way of expressing their hatred of the government.

Hutaree [which their site says means “Christian soldier”]  was named in a list of 512 so-called active “patriot” groups in the U.S. last year by the Southern Poverty Law Center in its spring intelligence report on extremist organizations. Of those groups, 127 were militias, including Hutaree. The remaining groups, according to SPLC, engage in “groundless conspiracy theorizing” or advocate anti-government doctrines.

Their YouTube channel has a series of videos showing camouflaged, armed men running through the wilderness with rifles; training, it seems, for the “end times.”
