Maitreya is usually attributed to the name used in Buddhism for ‘a Buddha yet to come’, though the origins of Maitreya are unclear and disputed. Although there is no scriptural evidence that the antichrist will come in the form of such a person, there are similarities between them. Maitreya is allegedly a bodhisattva, the term for one who lived on earth and was destined to become enlightened one day, or who came close to enlightenment, and after death moved on to one of the Buddhist heavens, which one can reach through meditation. One of the supposed roles of a bodhisattva is to guide those on earth who are ready for his teaching. It is believed that this particular bodhisattva, Maitreya, will return at a crucial time. The Bible speaks of the antichrist as one with supernatural power to influence others (Revelation 13:4-8) and will be able to convince millions that he is ‘enlightened’, so much so that they will follow his teachings.

They will have torn the net of the passions, they will manage to enter into trances, and theirs will be an abundance of joy and happiness, for they will lead a holy life under Maitreya’s guidance.

Many of them, however, disagree on exactly who will rule this New World Order, and that is what causes them to sometimes pull in opposite directions while nevertheless proceeding toward the same goal. The Vatican, for instance, wants the Pope to head the world coalition. Some want Lord Maitreya to head the New World Order. Lord Maitreya is the front runner, I believe, since witnesses say he was present on the ship at Malta with Bush, Gorbachev, and the ten regional heads of the New World Order.
