In fact the world will commend this actions. Thus you can see even today that the stage is being set for people based on their hatred for Christians–which is why during the Tribulation this whorish religion called Babylon will be able to kill Christians by the thousands and advance perversion, yet still be regarded as the quintessential guardian of faith and morality. In the first half of the tribulation Babylon will be the religion’s high priestess. As the AntiChrist comes, this Babylon will be his only opposition that will hold him from ruling the world. He will therefore launch a swift coup d’etat against this planet-wide interlocking system. He will have accumulated enough power to eliminate Babylon and he is very successful, at destroying this Babylonian system. Rev 17:12-13,16 “And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these will hate the Harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire.” (Also read Rev. 18 on Babylon’s destruction)
But what the AntiChrist does not realize is that God has sovereignty moved to give him the ability to overthrow the Babylonian system and that soon it will be the his turn to experience a judgment that is so swift, total and dreadful: “For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their Kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled” (Rev. 17:17). Once the AntiChrist has eliminated Babylon, he will move in with alacrity to fill the void with his own system. But now most importantly the Jews are insulted by the AntiChrist’s take over of Jerusalem and his setting up of his image in their holy temple (read Rev.13:15). Their heart has been softened to God as he had come to their help and had laid their enemies before their eyes.
Now the Jews will attempt an assignation and they will succeed! The AntiChrist is pronounced dead! Rev.13:3 “one of the heads of the beast seemed to have a fatal wound.” But the AntiChrist after associating with Satan himself comes back to life in front of the whole world. His fatal wound miraculously heals. Probably this is seen on CNN and the whole world will be amazed. Rev.:13:3-7 “…but the Fatal wound had been healed. The whole world was astonished and followed the beast. Men worshipped the dragon(Satan) because he(the AntiChrist) had given authority to the beast and they also worshipped the beast and asked who is like the beast? Who can make war against him?……He (The AntiChrist) was given power to make war against the saints and to conquer them (they had tried to kill him and he will revenge). And he was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. All inhabitant of the earth will worship the beast.” Here God warns not to bow to the image for those who will be left behind after the church has been raptured. This is their second chance to accept christ! They must watch out, or else when christ comes for the last time in Armageddon, they will be killed and be thrown in the lake of fire along with Satan and the AntiChrist (Read Rev. 14:9-10). This will be the second and final death. They can only prove themselves worthy by enduring the hardship that cometh and by not bowing down to satan! Rev.13:10 “If anyone is to go to captivity, into captivity he will go. If anyone is to killed with the sword, with the sword he will be killed. This calls for patient endurance and faithfulness on the part of the saints(the ones’s that have accepted Jesus after the Rapture).”
Now lets go back and look at the way the AntiChrist sets up his world domination, immediately after he overthrows Babylon. It is done by a one world government, one world economy and a one world religion that would eventually focus it’s worship on the AntiChrist himself. One World Government The false man of peace will “devour the whole earth” Dan7:23. He will rule them by their own agreement and with absolute, total authority (Dan 11:36). His personality will be persuasive subtlety and craft, “his mouth will speak pompous words” (Dan. 7:8) and is a “master of intrigue” (Dan.8:23). One World Economy The AntiChrist’s Economy will be a cash less society and one in which he could control every financial transaction. “He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their heads, so that no one may buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast (the AntiChrist) or the number of his name. This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man’s number. His number is 666” Rev.13:16-18. This AntiChrist’s rise like said before, is likely to be from the Europenian (European) Union who are now striving for a universal monetary system. It is of course well known that they already have a Common Market.
The ECC (European Economic Community) now known as the Union, at the moment is playing a part in Europe in trying to develop a political and economic unity. With 15 strong members it has it’s own blue flag with yellow stars, making a circle. As the AntiChrist sets foot in Europe he sure will make use of this introductory system. His system will only be different in that he will add his own one world religion, Satan worship. One World Religion George Washington had once said “it is impossible to govern the world without God and the Bible.” The AntiChrist slowly adds his own religion; himself. Rev.13:15 “He will set up his image in Jerusalem and all who refuse to worship him will be murdered.” Jesus had confirmed this. Jesus had said, Matthew 24:15 “When you see the ‘abomination of the desolation’ spoken by the prophet Daniel (the setting up of the beast in the temple) let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains..for them there will be great distress unequalled from the beginning of the world until now and never to be equal again.” The world is under the rule of the AntiChrist and for now he will devour it as he likes!
