Revelations 13:7 "And it was given unto anti-christ to make war with the saints and to overcome them: and power was given unto him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb." Revelations 6:9 "And I saw under the alter the souls of them that were slain for the Word of God, and for the testimony for which they held." Revelations 20:4 "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, anti-christ, 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 in the first resurrection."
Your Bible mentions the anti-christ by several different names and it may be confusing to realize the meaning of every prophesy concerning what God will permit him to do in the latter days. But we can easily find a clear message that God will let him have a short reign near the end of this world age; and it is vital that we understand what Biblical prophesy shows he will do. God's Word is true and without fault: so it is a positive truth that it will happen exactly as you can read from your Bible. Anti-christ will be enabled to deceive a vast portion of the world population, including many Christians, and his reign will eventually cause the death of thousands of people: and yes, Christians also. Your Bible does clearly show this and if it alarms you: just stop and seriously consider the present sinful condition our world and try to visualize how disappointing it must be to our Loving God Who has so tremendously blessed this world. If you will do that: I believe it will give you enough wisdom to know God has a perfect right to permit anti-christ to punish Our world that is showing such disrespect for God and is turning away from Him while seeking worldly pleasures. At this point, look again at the scriptures I have chosen for a text and let them refresh your memory to know what anti-christ is going to do in the latter days. If you understand current events, you will probably decide we are already in the latter days and all this might be seen in the near future. Then make sure that your name is written in the Lamb's book of life. If you have confessed Jesus Christ as your Savior, and have been baptized in His name, your name is in that all important Book. It is always written there by the HOLY SPIRIT of God when you do those things.
If any person is a Bible scholar, they know and fear the prophesied tribulation that anti-christ will cause during his short reign. It is true that it will be the worst and most terrible thing that will ever happen in the world. Many Christian preachers are deceiving people with a false rapture theory. It is accepted by people, even Christians, who do not have enough faith to believe God can lead them safely through that feared tribulation. But if God could part the Red Sea and let His people walk safely to the other side on dry land; I will keep my faith in God and not believe a false rapture theory that does not appear in any bible; and was never mentioned by Jesus Christ. And a rapture was never mentioned for the first 1,800 years of Bible history. It is from the evil imagination of ignorant men.
