Biblical Prophecy Today chooses not to be a wierd or wacky service provider of every wild and wooly idea that someone gets from too much coffee; too much time on the Internet and too little time studying and “approving” what is valid, but we would see Jesus as Coming to this Generation.We abide by that motto that saved us in the beginning of this age of grace and we saw written on the sides of the wall leading into a little church at the time called Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa; It said:

“Jesus is Coming”

 RAPTURE READY

The Antichrist

By Paul Kusiak


During the Tribulation a world leader will arise. The Bible has many names for this leader, “the fierce king” (Dan 8:23), “abomination” (Matt. 24:15), “the man of sin” (2 Thess. 2:3), “the wicked one” (2 Thess. 2:8), “the beast” (Rev. 13.1) but he is most commonly known as “the Antichrist”.

The name Antichrist means “in place of” and “against” Christ. This name suits him well because just as Jesus is the world’s true Savior, the Antichrist will deceive the world into thinking he is their savior.

This is an overview of what the Bible says about the Antichrist:

1) HE WILL BE INSPIRED BY SATAN AND ASSISTED BY THE FALSE PROPHET
“The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders” (2 Thessalonians 2:9)

While the Antichrist will appear to be a great man, he will be a servant of Satan. 2 Corinthians 11:14-15 tells us that “Satan disguises himself as an angel of light” so we shouldn’t be surprised that his followers deceive the world by “disguising themselves as servants of righteousness.”

During the Tribulation, Satan, the Antichrist, and the False Prophet will form an unholy trinity. The False Prophet will lead people to the Antichrist and the Antichrist will lead people to Satan and Satan will lead them into hell.

2) HE WILL RISE TO POWER THROUGH PEACE AFTER THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH
“…He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming” (2 Thessalonians 2:7-8)

After the Rapture (when He who restrains is taken out of the way) the Antichrist will come on the scene. The world will be looking for a leader and Satan will be quick to provide one.

The Antichrist will preach a message of peace. The prophet Daniel says that “he shall come in peaceably, and seize the kingdom by intrigue.” (Daniel 11:21)

Revelation 13:2 compares him to a leopard because he will rise to power very quickly. The verse goes on to say that his feet are like those of a bear, because of his fierce power and strength and his mouth is like that of a lion, because of his domination over the world.

3) HE WILL TAKE PART IN, AND BREAK, A PEACE TREATY WITH ISRAEL
“Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week [seven years]; but in the middle of the week [three and-a-half- years] he shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering…” (Daniel 9:26-27)

The Antichrist will seemingly make good on his peace promise when he makes a seven year peace treaty with Israel and her enemies. But in the middle of the treaty he will break the treaty and plunge the world war. Ultimately, there can be no peace without Jesus, “the Prince of peace”. (Isaiah 9:6)

4) HE WILL APPEAR TO BE FATALLY WOUNDED AND RESURRECTED

“And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast. So they worshiped the dragon [Satan]who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?” (Revelation 13:3-4)

There will be many miracles and wonders surrounding the Antichrist, but none as convincing as what Revelation 13:3-4 outlines. In an attempt to imitate Christ’s resurrection, the Antichrist will appear to be mortally wounded and come back to life.

The world will be amazed asking, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?” They will think he is God and he will use this to his full advantage.

5) HE WILL CLAIM TO BE GOD AND FORCE THE WORLD TO RECEIVE HIS MARK

“…the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.” (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4)

After deceiving the world the Antichrist will declare that he is God. 2 Thessalonians 2:10-12 says that “because they did not receive the love of the truth, God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

In other words, because the world rejected Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior God will allow them to believe the Antichrist’s claim to be God. They will worship him and Satan.

He will force the “small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.” (Revelation 13:16-17)

The only way to buy or sell during the Antichrist’s world government will be to receive his mark. The only way to receive the mark is to worship him as God. Those who worship the Antichrist as God reject the true God and will go to hell.

The Antichrist will enter the world on a platform of peace, tell the people what they want to hear and amazes them with signs and wonders to win their trust. They are happy to accept his one-world government.

And once they accept him, the beast is revealed.

BACK TO BIBLE STUDY PLANET

 In the world of Eschatology there is a lot of money to be made selling books, doing seminars, giving speech engagements and generally sensationalizing anything that “sounds like” or “looks like” prophecy.

 That is not why we are here or what I do.

We would see Jesus

 And that is What Prophecy is all about.

Merchandizing and Marketing are the two largest leverages used in promotion of prophecy today.
They are effective, they work, and they also distort.

 We are about the Message.

 We try to remove the M&M’s from the sites posting so you get less candy and more meaning.

We are ALL about the Message.

 It is not that we are ooposed to any Christian trying to make a buc, we simply choose to remove the dollars and sense so anyone and everyone can freely study and freely recieve the best, the most relevant and the currrent materials available on the internet to anyone who wants to know Fact from Fiction about End Times.

That can only be accomplished by personal study.
We aren’t going to tell you what to beleive
That is the role of the Holy Spirit
but we are going to give you 
tools to study.
