THE FALSE PROPHET

March 21, 2012

The second half of Revelation chapter thirteen verses eleven through eighteen exposes us to the beast from earth. This beast is the false prophet whose authority is religious rather than political. He gives the appearance of being meek and gentle however he speaks with authority derived from Satan.

The false prophet is in allegiance with the Antichrist, and he persuades men to worship the Antichrist. Also, he is able to perform great miracles like the two witnesses which cause men to believe in him.

The false prophet has a statue erected that looks like the Antichrist and is able to talk. Like Nebuchadnezzar in the Old Testament, anyone that does not bow down and pay homage will be killed.

Also, he requires earthlings to take the mark of the beast on their right hand or foreheads if they wanted to buy or sell. Those who refuse to accept this mark will be known as an enemy of the Antichrist,  unable to purchase food to keep themselves nourished, unable to conduct any business proceedings, and unable to openly exist in the world of the Antichrist. The mark is the mystical six six six, and once taken cannot be reversed.

Commentators question whether this mark and the bowing down to the statue are imposed on the whole world or just the nations and people under the control of the Antichrist. For those who will be living on earth during the tribulation, the answer will be revealed.
