The day is soon coming when there will arise to power a penultimate world ruler, a world king, in the spirit of the Devil. Aka Satan (Daniel 8:23–24). This ruler will come at a time when there will be chaos all over the world and he will come in a cloak pretending to be “Christ” ushering in world peace. However, he will be the Antichrist (1 John 2:18). The prophet Daniel explained said:
“And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up. And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practice, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people” (Daniel 8:23–24).
“And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, [AND BY PEACE SHALL DESTROY MANY]: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand” (Daniel 8:25).
Jesus warns, DO NOT BE DECEIVED, saying: “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, [IF IT WERE POSSIBLE, THEY SHALL DECEIVE THE VERY ELECT]. Behold, I have told you before” (Matthew 24:24-25).
“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads. And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name” (Revelation 13:16-17).
“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, ‘Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?’” (Revelation 13:4).
However, God’s Elect will NOT worship the beast! As it is written:
“And ALL THAT DWELL UPON THE EARTH SHALL WORSHIP HIM, whose [NAMES ARE NOT WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF LIFE OF THE LAMB] slain from the foundation of the world.
[IF ANY MAN HAVE AN EAR, LET HIM HEAR]” (Revelation 13:8-9).
“Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD’s anger” (Zephaniah 2:3).
“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” (1 Thessalonians 5:3).
