THE ANTICHRIST WILL DECLARE WAR AGAINST CHRISTRev. 17:14 "THESE SHALL MAKE WAR WITH THE LAMB,"
Jesus is 'the Lamb'. Jn. 1:29.
Dan. 8:25 "he (Antichrist) shall also stand up against THE PRINCE OF PRINCES (JESUS);"
Acts 3:15 "And killed THE PRINCE OF LIFE, whom God hath raised from the dead;" KJV
Acts 5:31 "Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be A PRINCE and a Saviour," KJV
Rev 1:5 "And from Jesus Christ...and THE PRINCE OF THE KINGS OF THE EARTH. " KJV
Dan. 8:11 :Yea, "HE (ANTICHRIST) MAGNIFIED HIMSELF even to THE PRINCE OF THE HOST (Jesus),
Rev. 13:5 "And there was given unto him A MOUTH SPEAKING great things and BLASPHEMIES; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he OPENED HIS MOUTH IN BLASPHEMY AGAINST GOD, TO BLASPHEME HIS NAME, and his tabernacle, (the temple) and them that dwell in heaven." KJVHE WILL STAND AGAINST THE BIBLEDan. 8:12 "...CAST DOWN THE TRUTH to the ground;"
John 17:17 "THY WORD is truth" KJV
He will vehemently oppose the Ten Commandments, God's moral law, and everything the Bible stands for. Without a doubt he will work to outlaw the Bible, calling it a hate book because it stands against sin and declares that there is only ONE GOD, which to them is politically incorrect. There have been precedents to the Bible being outlawed: in the Dark Ages; in Islamic nations; and in Communist nations.THE ANTICHRIST WILL HAVE SPIES FROM AMONG THE JEWSDan 11:30 "he shall even return, and HAVE INTELLIGENCE WITH THEM THAT FORSAKE THE HOLY COVENANT." KJV Those who held the 'holy covenant', the Law, are the Jews.TWO RESISTOR LEADERS AGAINST THE ANTICHRISTRev 11:3-12 Two men of God will stand up in Jerusalem and boldly prophesy against the Antichrist and his Mark for three and a half years. They will be dressed in paupers clothes and will be like David and Joshua in the Bible because they will fight, hurt and kill all who try to hurt or kill them. They have supernatural power with God like Moses so that they can stop it from raining; turn water into blood and cause plagues any time.
After awhile, the Antichrist himself will get fed up with them and will kill them. Their dead bodies will lie in the streets of Jerusalem for all to see. They won't be buried for three and a half days. Every nation via satellite television will view their dead bodies and there will be a worldwide party celebrating their deaths. After three and a half days, God will resurrect them from the dead and they will ascend into the clouds with the world watching. After seeing this, the whole world will shake being terrified of God.
THE ANTICHRIST WILL BREAK THE COVENANT (PEACE TREATY) WITH ISRAEL
Dan. 11:28 "...and his heart shall be against THE HOLY COVENANT;"
Dan. 11:32 "And such as do wickedly against THE COVENANT"
Dan. 11:30 "...and have indignation against THE HOLY COVENANT:"HE WILL STOP THE JEWISH SACRIFICE IN THEIR TEMPLEDan 8:13 "How long shall be THE VISION CONCERNING THE DAILY SACRIFICE, AND THE TRANSGRESSION OF DESOLATION, TO GIVE BOTH THE SANCTUARY and the host TO BE TRODDEN UNDER FOOT? (THE ANTICHRIST SITTING ON CHRIST'S THRONE)"
Dan. 9:25-27 ""Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince (Jesus) shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince (Antichrist) that shall come shall DESTROY THE CITY (JERUSALEM) and THE SANCTUARY" "...and in THE MIDST OF THE WEEK (at the end of 3 ½ years) he shall CAUSE THE SACRIFICE and the oblation TO CEASE, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate."
Dan. 12:11-12 "And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and THE ABOMINATION that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. ( 3 ½ years)
Dan. 11:31 "And arms shall stand on his part, and they SHALL POLLUTE THE SANCTUARY (the Temple) of strength, and SHALL TAKE AWAY THE DAILY SACRIFICE, and they shall place THE ABOMINATION that maketh desolate."
Matt 24:15 "When ye therefore shall see THE ABOMINATION of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, STAND IN THE HOLY PLACE, (THE TEMPLE), whoso readeth, let him understand:" KJV
WHEN THE ANTICHRIST STOPS THE SACRIFICE IN THE TEMPLE THE JEWS WILL REALIZE THEY HAVE BEEN DECEIVED AND THAT HIS MAN NOT THEIR MESSIAH.
Because he betrayed them, they will kick him out of the Temple and Jerusalem. This will be viewed as an open act of war by the Jews against the Antichrist.
THE ANTICHRIST WILL BLASPHEME GOD AND CHRIST FOR 42 MONTHS
Rev. 13:5 "And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and BLASPHEMIES; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months."
At first people will know the Antichrist as the Man of Peace, their Messiah. After the first forty two months or three and a half years he is in power, WHO HE REALLY IS WILL BE REVEALED. HE IS NOT THE WORLD'S MESSIAH, BUT THE IMPOSTER SATANIC ANTICHRIST, the man who will make the world forget Hitler and Stalin.
2 Thess 2:5-9 "Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And now YE KNOW WHAT WITHHOLDETH (God's people still being here) that HE MIGHT BE REVEALED IN HIS TIME. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, UNTIL HE BE TAKEN OUT OF THE WAY (Most Bible scholars see this as when Christ's true church is Raptured or 'caught up'). And THEN SHALL THAT WICKED (ANTICHRIST) BE REVEALED, " KJV
There are scriptures that strongly point that that Antichrist will come as 'The Man of Peace' and not be manifest as the Antichrist at first. This will be the first three and a half years of the seven year period, but THE LAST THREE AND A HALF YEARS IS WHEN HE WILL MANIFEST HIS EVIL SIDE. This second three and a half years will also be the time of the WRATH OF GOD, the Great Tribulation: the 7 Seals, 7 Trumpets, 7 Vials, that God promised to save His people from. (1 Thess. 1:10)
(See the article 'Global Warming Related to Bible Prophecy')HE WILL BE KNOWN AS 'THE SON OF PERDITION'Rev 17:8 "The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into PERDITION"
2 Thess 2:3 'SON OF PERDITION': "The phrase portrays the progression of AN EVIL CHARACTER WHO PRODUCES RUIN IN OTHERS, and is headed toward final judgment (Rev 17:8,11). Perdition in this passage refers to a place of eternal punishment, the final state of the damned."
(Nelson's Illustrated Bible Dictionary, Copyright © 1986, Thomas Nelson Publishers)HE WILL HAVE A FIERCE COUNTENANCEDan. 8:23 "...a king of FIERCE COUNTENANCE"
Dan. 7:20 "...even of that horn that had eyes,...whose LOOK was MORE STOUT than his fellows."
Like Hitler and Stalin, people will be intimidated and afraid of his very appearance.
HE WILL SHED HIS FACADE AS 'THE MAN OF PEACE' AND WILL BECOME 'THE MAN OF WAR'
Rev 13:4 "Who is like unto the beast? WHO IS ABLE TO MAKE WAR WITH HIM?"
Dan 2:40-45 "And THE FOURTH KINGDOM (This will be the Antichrist's kingdom) shall be STRONG AS IRON: forasmuch as iron BREAKETH IN PIECES AND SUBDUETH ALL THINGS: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise."
Dan. 7:21 "...and shall DEVOUR THE WHOLE EARTH, and shall TREAD IT DOWN, and BREAK IT IN PIECES."
HE WILL DECLARE WAR AGAINST BIBLE BELIEVING CHRISTIANS, ISRAEL AND THE JEWS
Dan. 7:21 "I beheld, and the same HORN (the Antichrist) MADE WAR WITH THE SAINTS, "
Joel 2:25 "and shall WEAR OUT THE SAINTS of the most High," GOD'S PEOPLE WILL BE HIS TARGET.
Daniel 8:25 "...and BY PEACE shall DESTROY MANY."
THE ANTICHRIST is CALLED 'THE LITTLE HORN' and 'A FOURTH BEAST'
Dan 7:7-14 "After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, DREADFUL AND TERRIBLE, AND STRONG EXCEEDINGLY; AND IT HAD GREAT IRON TEETH: IT DEVOURED AND BRAKE IN PIECES, AND STAMPED THE RESIDUE WITH THE FEET OF IT:" "I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another LITTLE HORN, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man," (The titles 'Little Horn' and 'the Beast' are synonyms to help describe the Antichrist).
Dan. 7:19 "Then I would know the truth of THE FOURTH BEAST, which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass; which DEVOURED, BRAKE IN PIECES, AND STAMPED THE RESIDUE WITH HIS FEET;"
Perhaps the Antichrist is called THE BEAST because he vicious and merciless like a beast.
Dan 8:9-14 "And out of one of them came forth A LITTLE HORN, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land. And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and STAMPED UPON THEM." KJVHE WILL INITIATE SURPRISE DEADLY RAIDS1Thessalonians 5:3 "For when they shall say, PEACE AND SAFETY; then SUDDEN destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and THEY SHALL NOT ESCAPE."
Luke 21:26-28 "MEN'S HEARTS FAILING THEM FOR FEAR, AND FOR LOOKING AFTER THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE COMING ON THE EARTH: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken."THE DEATH PENALTY FOR RESISTORS IS BEHEADINGRev. 13:15 "...and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should BE KILLED." KJV
Revelation 20:4 "And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were BEHEADED for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which HAD NOT WORSHIPPED THE BEAST, NEITHER HIS IMAGE, NEITHER HAD RECEIVED HIS MARK upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years."
Dan. 11:26 "...and MANY SHALL FALL DOWN SLAIN."
Dan. 8:24 "...and he shall DESTROY WONDERFULLY,"
This means that he will kill and destroy with incredible ease and efficiency.
UNDOUBTEDLY HE WILL USE EUTHANASIA HEAVILY AGAINST THE AGED, SICK AND DEFORMED LIKE HITLER DID. Hitler justified killing many and dissecting their parts in the name of the advancement of medical science. This SACRIFICE OF THE FEW will be justified to SAVE THE MANY.
Prov 16:25 "There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." KJV
THE ANTICHRIST WILL TURN ON THE APOSTATE WHORE CHURCH AND WILL DESTROY IT AFTER HE HAS USED IT.
He will come to a point where he will no longer tolerate any semblance of even corrupt Christianity. He will demand worship, attention and exclusive power for himself alone.
Rev 17:1-6 "And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee THE JUDGMENT OF THE GREAT WHORE that sitteth upon many waters: WITH WHOM THE KINGS OF THE EARTH HAVE COMMITTED FORNICATION,"
Rev. 17:16 "And the ten horns which thou sawest upon THE BEAST , these SHALL HATE THE WHORE, AND SHALL MAKE HER DESOLATE AND NAKED, AND SHALL EAT HER FLESH, AND BURN HER WITH FIRE."
Most likely he will have all churches and religious institutions burned down.HIS MARAUDING WILL NOT BE OVER QUICKLYDan. 11:33 "...yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, MANY DAYS."'
Matthew 24:22 "And EXCEPT THOSE DAYS SHOULD BE SHORTENED, there should no flesh be saved: but FOR THE ELECT'S SAKE those days shall be shortened."
THE BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON IS THE WHOLE WORLD UNITED IN WAR AGAINST ISRAEL
Rev. 16:16 "And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue ARMAGEDDON."
Zech 14:2 "For I will gather ALL NATIONS AGAINST JERUSALEM TO BATTLE; ...and half of the city shall go forth into captivity,..."
Dan. 8:24 "...and SHALL DESTROY the mighty and THE HOLY PEOPLE" (Biblical terminology for the Jews). This will be a repeat of Hitler's attempt to exterminate the Jews, the only difference is that the whole world will try to do it.
Rev. 16:13-16 "And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils... which go forth unto THE KINGS OF THE EARTH AND OF THE WHOLE WORLD , to gather them to THE BATTLE OF THAT GREAT DAY OF GOD ALMIGHTY."
This will be an effort to repeat Hitler's Holocaust in an effort to exterminate the Jews. The only difference now is that all nations will be involved believing the Jews are the scourge of the earth.JESUS WILL INTERVENE FOR ISRAEL AT THE BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDONDan. 12:1 "...and at that time THY PEOPLE (ISRAEL) SHALL BE DELIVERED, every one that shall be found written in the book." KJV
Dan 12:1-4 "And at that time shall Michael (archangel) stand up, THE GREAT PRINCE (Jesus) WHICH STANDETH FOR THE CHILDREN OF THY PEOPLE:"
Rev 19:19-21 "And I saw THE BEAST, AND THE KINGS OF THE EARTH, AND THEIR ARMIES, gathered together to make WAR AGAINST HIM THAT SAT ON THE HORSE, (Christ) and against his army."
Zech. 14:3 "Then shall the LORD go forth, and FIGHT AGAINST THOSE NATIONS,"DESCRIPTION OF CHRIST'S ARMYJude 14-15 "Behold, THE LORD COMETH with ten thousands of his saints, TO EXECUTE JUDGMENT UPON ALL, and to convince all that are UNGODLY among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their HARD SPEECHES which ungodly sinners have SPOKEN AGAINST HIM." KJV
Joel 2:1-11 is an in depth description of Christ army as they intervene with Him at THE GREAT BATTLE OF GOD ALMIGHTY.THE ANTICHRIST AND HIS ARMY WILL BE DESTROYED BY CHRISTLk 21:26-28 "And then shall THEY SEE THE SON OF MAN COMING IN A CLOUD with power and great glory."
Dan. 8:25 "...but HE (ANTICHRIST) SHALL BE BROKEN without hand."
2 Thess 2:6, 8 "And then shall THAT WICKED (Antichrist) be revealed, whom THE LORD SHALL CONSUMEwith the spirit of his mouth, and SHALL DESTROY with the brightness of his coming:"
Rev. 17:14 "THESE SHALL MAKE WAR WITH THE LAMB (JESUS), and THE LAMB SHALL OVERCOME THEM: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful" (His army, His people).
Dan 2:34 "Thou sawest till that A STONE was cut out without hands, which SMOTE THE IMAGE upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and BRAKE THEM TO PIECES." That stone is Jesus. 1 Pet. 2:4,6, Eph 2:20.
Dan. 2: 45 "Forasmuch as thou sawest that THE STONE WAS CUT OUT OF THE MOUNTAIN WITHOUT HANDS, and that it BRAKE IN PIECES THE IRON, THE BRASS, THE CLAY, THE SILVER, AND THE GOLD;" This fourth kingdom mentioned in Daniel 2 is the Antichrist's kingdom which shall be broken by Jesus.
Dan 9:26 "...and unto the END OF THE WAR DESOLATIONS are determined." KJV
Dan. 7:26 "But the judgment shall sit, and they SHALL TAKE AWAY HIS (ANTICHRIST) DOMINION, TO CONSUME AND TO DESTROY IT UNTO THE END."
Dan. 7:11 "I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which THE HORN SPAKE: I beheld even till THE BEAST WAS SLAIN, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame."
Rev. 6:16-17 "And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from THE WRATH OF THE LAMB (Jesus, Jn 1:36) : FOR THE GREAT DAY OF HIS WRATH IS COME; AND WHO SHALL BE ABLE TO STAND?" KJVISRAEL WILL BE DELIVEREDDan. 12:1 "...and at that time THY PEOPLE SHALL BE DELIVERED, every one that shall be found written in the book."
Jer. 30:5-11 "it is even THE TIME OF JACOB'S TROUBLE ; but HE SHALL BE SAVED OUT OF IT. For it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I WILL BREAK HIS YOKE FROM OFF THY NECK, and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him: But they shall serve the LORD their God, and David their king, whom I will raise up unto them. Therefore fear thou not, O my servant Jacob, saith the LORD; NEITHER BE DISMAYED, O ISRAEL: FOR, LO, I WILL SAVE THEE from afar, and thy seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and shall be in rest, and be quiet, and none shall make him afraid. For I AM WITH THEE, SAITH THE LORD, TO SAVE THEE: though I make A FULL END OF ALL NATIONSwhither I have scattered thee (Jews), yet will I not make a full end of thee: but I will correct thee in measure, and will not leave thee altogether unpunished."
Joel 2:18 "Then will THE LORD BE JEALOUS FOR HIS LAND (ISRAEL), AND PITY HIS PEOPLE." KJVMANY JEWS WILL FINALLY ACCEPT JESUS AS THEIR MESSIAHRev 1:7 "Behold, HE COMETH WITH CLOUDS (1 THESS. 4:16); and every eye shall see him (Jesus), and they also which PIERCED HIM (Christ's crucifixion): AND ALL KINDREDS OF THE EARTH SHALL WAIL BECAUSE OF HIM (When they realize this Jesus they rejected really is the Messiah, the Son of God, the Savior of the world)." KV
Isa 45:23 "That unto me (Jesus) every knee shall bow , every tongue shall swear." KJV
AFTER THREE AND A HALF YEARS THE ANTICHRIST WILL BE KICKED OUT OF THE TEMPLE.
Dan. 8:14 "And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall THE SANCTUARY BE CLEANSED." KJVTHE PUNISHMENT OF THE ANTICHRIST AND SATANRev 20:10 "And THE DEVIL that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where THE BEAST AND THE FALSE PROPHET ARE, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever."
Rev. 19:20 "And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast , and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone."
JESUS WILL REIGN FROM THE TEMPLE DURING THE MILLENEUM
Rev. 20:6 "...they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and SHALL REIGN WITH HIM A THOUSAND YEARS." KJV
Dan. 2:44 "And in the days of these kings shall the GOD OF HEAVEN SET UP A KINGDOM, WHICH SHALL NEVER BE DESTROYED: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and IT SHALL STAND FOR EVER."
Dan 9:25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto THE MESSIAH THE PRINCE (JESUS) shall be SEVEN WEEKS, and threescore and two weeks: "
Rev 12:6 "And SHE (Israel) brought forth A MAN CHILD (JESUS), who was to RULE ALL NATIONS WITH A ROD OF IRON (during the Millennium) and HER CHILD (Jesus) was CAUGHT UP UNTO GOD (Jesus' ascension) , and to HIS THRONE. (Jesus on the throne, Mt. 19:28)
Eph 4:8 "Wherefore he saith, When HE (JESUS) ASCENDED UP ON HIGH," KJVDANIEL'S VISION OF JESUSDan. 7:12 "As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time. I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like THE SON OF MAN (Jesus, Mt 16:27) came with the clouds of heaven (1 Thess. 4:17), and came to the Ancient of days (God), and they brought him near before him. And THERE WAS GIVEN HIM DOMINION, AND GLORY, AND A KINGDOM, THAT ALL PEOPLE, NATIONS, AND LANGUAGES, SHOULD SERVE HIM: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed."
Dan 10:5-8 "Then I lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a certain man clothed in linen, whose loins were girded with fine gold of Uphaz: His body also was like the beryl, and his face as the appearance of lightning, and his eyes as lamps of fire, and his arms and his feet like in colour to polished brass, and the voice of his words like the voice of a multitude."
Dan. 7:9 "I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and THE ANCIENT OF DAYS (Rev. 19:12) did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire. A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: THE JUDGMENT WAS SET, AND THE BOOKS WERE OPENED."
This description of God and Christ in Daniel are similar to the description that John gave in Rev. 1:14, 2:18, 19:12.THE RESURRECTIONDan. 12:2-3 "And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt (Jn 5:29). And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever." (See 1 Thess. 4:16; Jn 3:16; 1 Cor. 15)THE REDEEMED WILL RULE WITH CHRISTRev 15:2 "...THEY SHALL BE PRIESTS OF GOD AND OF CHRIST, AND SHALL REIGN WITH HIM a thousand years." (During the Millennium)
Dan 7:18 "But THE SAINTS OF THE MOST HIGH SHALL TAKE THE KINGDOM, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever."
Dan. 7:22 "Until the Ancient of days came, and JUDGMENT WAS GIVEN TO THE SAINTS of the most High; and the time came that THE SAINTS POSSESSED THE KINGDOM. And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and ALL DOMINIONS SHALL SERVE AND OBEY HIM."
Dan 12:7-12 "And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever (God the Father and Jesus Christ) that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished..."
Rev 20:4 "And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast , and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name...having the harps of God." KJVJESUS WARNED US THE ANTICHRIST WAS COMINGMANY PEOPLE SAY DON'T TELL ME ABOUT THE ANTICHRIST, TELL ME ABOUT JESUS CHRIST. Of course our primary task is to tell about Jesus Christ, but why would the Bible say so much about the Antichrist and Jesus Himself warn so much about him if he wouldn't be a danger to the world and His believers?
Mt. 24:25 Jesus said, "Behold, I HAVE TOLD YOU BEFORE. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not;" KJV
2 Thess. 2:5 "Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

THE BIG QUESTION? WILL THE ANTICHRIST COME BEFORE OR AFTER THE RAPTURE? 1 Thess. 4:16-17
THE BIG DANGER FOR CHRISTIANSChristians who have been taught the classical PRE-TRIB RAPTURE are at risk. The Pre-Trib Rapture teaches that God's people will be Raptured BEFORE this SEVEN YEAR end time period begins.
The reason this is such a critical issue for those who have been taught Pre-Trib is that IF THE RAPTURE DOESN'T TAKE PLACE BEFORE THE BEGINNING OF 'THE SEVEN YEARS' BEGINS, IT IS VERY POSSIBLE THAT MILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS WHO HAVE DOGMATICALLY BEEN TAUGHT 'THE PRE-TRIB RAPTURE' WILL TAKE 'THE MARK OF THE BEAST' REFUSING TO BELIEVE THAT THIS COULD POSSIBLY BE 'THE MARK' because they are still here. Therefore, most likely many Pre-Trib Christians will ignore the warning signs and take the Mark to continue doing business. Of course we can't be positive either way, but must take precautions in case it is not Pre-Trib).
THE DOMINIONISTS AND KINGDOM NOW BRAND OF CHRISTIAN, WILL MOST LIKELY ACCEPT THE 'MAN OF PEACE' AS THE SECOND RETURN OF CHRIST. THOSE WHO ARE DECEIVED INTO BELIEVING THIS WILL TAKE THE MARK. They may believe that this is 'the mark of God on their forehead' and their millennial reign with Christ is beginning.THE RFID CHIP IMPLANTI BELIEVE THE RFID CHIP IMPLANT could very well be used for THE MARK OF THE BEAST. Many Christians believe that this RFID chip could not possibly be used as the Mark of the Beast. I have heard a number of preachers say they would take this chip and tell there people to also take it. They are totally convinced that they will be gone before the Mark is given. CAUTION! DO TAKE ANYTHING IN YOUR RIGHT HAND OR FOREHEAD, particularly related to doing business. THE RFID CHIP IS THE SIZE OF A GRAIN OF RICE. It is so small that it will be impossible for the man on the street to know what data has been put in it. To take this chip would be GAMBLING WITH YOUR ETERNAL SOUL.
(See the article 'Could the Verichip be The Mark of the Beast?', www.lorendavis.com)
THERE ARE A NUMBER OF SCRIPTURES THAT INDICATE WE WILL BE HERE WHEN THE ANTICHRIST COMES INTO POWER FOR THE FIRST THREE AND A HALF YEARS AND WHEN THE MARK IS GIVEN.
The Bible warns us NOT TO TAKE THE MARK!' Rev. 19:20. THAT HAS TO BE TALKING TO CHRISTIANSwho know the Bible. Non-Christians would have no idea what this is talking about.
Lk 21:34-35 "And TAKE HEED TO YOURSELVES, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so THAT DAY COME UPON YOU UNAWARES.THOSE WHO TAKE THE MARK WILL FACE ETERNAL PUNISHMENTRev 14:9-11 "And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and RECEIVE HIS MARK IN HIS FOREHEAD, OR IN HIS HAND, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of THEIR TORMENT ASCENDETH UP FOR EVER AND EVER: and they have no rest day nor night, WHO WORSHIP THE BEAST AND HIS IMAGE, AND WHOSOEVER RECEIVETH THE MARK OF HIS NAME." KJVTHERE WILL BE MARTYRSRev 6:9 "And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar THE SOULS OF THEM THAT WERE SLAIN FOR THE WORD OF GOD, AND FOR THE TESTIMONY WHICH THEY HELD:" KJV
Heb 11:35 "...and others were tortured, NOT ACCEPTING DELIVERANCE ; that they might obtain a better resurrection..." KJVTHERE WILL BE THOSE WHO WILL BE DELIVEREDLk. 21:36 "Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted WORTHY TO ESCAPE ALL THESE THINGS THAT SHALL COME TO PASS, and to stand before the Son of man (Jesus)."
Rev 3:10-11 "...Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I ALSO WILL KEEP THEE from THE HOUR OF TEMPTATION, which shall come upon ALL THE WORLD, TO TRY THEM that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown." KJV
Dan 12:7-12 "MANY SHALL BE PURIFIED, AND MADE WHITE, AND TRIED;"
Rev 20:4 "...and THEM THAT HAD GOTTEN THE VICTORY OVER THE BEAST , and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name...having the harps of God." KJV
Dan. 12:11-12 "And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days ( 3 ½ years) BLESSED IS HE THAT WAITETH, AND COMETH TO THE THOUSAND THREE HUNDRED AND FIVE AND THIRTY DAYS." The phrase 'BLESSED IS HE' COULD ONLY BE TALKING ABOUT CHRIST'S PEOPLE WHO MADE IT THROUGH THIS FIRST THREE AND A HALF YEARS OF GREAT TEMPTATION AND SURVIVED NOT TAKING THE MARK.
1 Cor 10:13 "There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will WITH THE TEMPTATION ALSO MAKE A WAY TO ESCAPE, THAT YE MAY BE ABLE TO BEAR IT." KJV Some will be able to escape either by standing on Psalms 91 and being vigilant or by the Rapture.
(See the article 'Could the Verichip Be the Mark of the Beast?' www.lorendavis.com)THE FUTURE FORETOLDDan. 2:45 "THE GREAT GOD HATH MADE KNOWN to the king WHAT SHALL COME TO PASS hereafter: and THE DREAM IS CERTAIN, AND THE INTERPRETATION THEREOF SURE." KJVTHE VISIONDan. 8:17 "So he came near where I stood: and when he came, I was afraid, and fell upon my face: but he said unto me, Understand, O son of man: for AT THE TIME OF THE END shall be THE VISION."
Dan. 10:5-8 "And I Daniel alone saw the vision: for the men that were with me saw not the vision; but a great quaking fell upon them, so that they fled to hide themselves. Therefore I was left alone, and saw this great vision, and there remained no strength in me: for my comeliness was turned in me into corruption, and I retained no strength." KJVTHE WICKED WON'T CHANGE AND WON'T UNDERSTAND THE VISIONDan. 12:10 "and NONE OF THE WICKED SHALL UNDERSTAND;"
THE INTERPRETATION OF DANIEL'S PROPHESY ABOUT THE ANTICHRIST WAS TO BE KEPT A SECRET UNTIL THE TIME OF THE END
Dan. 8:26-27 "And the vision of the evening and the morning which was told is true: wherefore SHUT THOU UP THE VISION; for IT SHALL BE FOR MANY DAYS. And I Daniel fainted, and was sick certain days; afterward I rose up, and did the king's business; and I was astonished at the vision, but NONE UNDERSTOOD IT."
Dan 9:24-10:1 "Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and TO SEAL UP THE VISION AND PROPHECY, and to anoint the most Holy (Jesus).
Dan. 12:8 "And I heard, but I UNDERSTOOD NOT: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things? And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for THE WORDS ARE CLOSED UP AND SEALED TILL THE TIME OF THE END." KJV
Dan. 12:4 "But thou, O Daniel, SHUT UP THE WORDS, AND SEAL THE BOOK, EVEN TO THE TIME OF THE END:"

If you will pray this prayer and mean it, you will receive the gift of Eternal Life and Salvation right now.
PRAYER: O Lord. I believe that Jesus is the Son of God; that He is the Christ, the Messiah. I confess that God raised Him from the dead and He is alive. I come to you right now confessing that I am a sinner. I repent of my sins and ask you to forgive me. I need a Savior. Jesus, save me! Change me! I want to spiritually be born again into the family of God. Write my name down in the Book of Life so when I die I will go to heaven. Thank you Jesus for saving me. I give my life to you and will serve you from this day forth. I love you Jesus!
If you prayed this prayer and meant it, you are now a child of God. Tell someone!
God bless you!
