Zec 12:3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.

 

Behold, the days will come, that there shall rise up a kingdom upon earth, and it shall be feared above all the kingdoms that were before it.
I said, Speak on, my Lord

In his last days shall the most High raise up three kingdoms, and renew many things therein, and they shall have the dominion of the earth,
I said, Speak on, my Lord

 

For there shall be sedition among men, and invading one another; they shall not regard their kings nor princes, and the course of their actions shall stand in their power.
I said, Speak on, my Lord

 

Where the nations of the dragons of Arabia shall come out with many chariots, and the multitude of them shall be carried as the wind upon earth, that all they which hear them may fear and tremble.
Also the Carmanians raging in wrath shall go forth as the wild boars of the wood, and with great power shall they come, and join battle with them, and shall waste a portion of the land of the Assyrians.
And then shall the dragons have the upper hand, remembering their nature; and if they shall turn themselves, conspiring together in great power to persecute them,
I said, Speak on, my Lord

 

The book of Revelation is possibly one of the most neglected and at the same time one of the most controversial books in the Bible.
The highly divergent views of writers and preachers who interpret it, further complicates matters
in gaining clarity about the message of Revelation.

The fact that neither Christ nor the Antichrist are physically present on earth, doesn’t mean that the struggle between them is less real. All attacks against Christ and His kingdom are instigated by a demonic, antichristian spirit. That is the mystery of lawlessness which is already at work. Political and religious leaders who were notorious for the persecution of Christians during the church dispensation all showed themselves to be antichrists. They are forerunners who prepared the way for the coming of the great end-time dictator. John said:"It is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour"
(1 Jn. 2:18).

The march of the Antichrist to ultimate world domination can, therefore, be traced back to the actions of all rebels against God and His kingdom. They were moved by the spirit of rebellion. However, as a physically revealed world leader the Antichrist is strictly confined to the end-time. There is no credibility in the historicist view that Nero, Hitler, or any other historical figure fulfilled all prophesies with regard to the Antichrist. The Bible is very clear on the fact that the true Christ will consume the Antichrist with the breath of His mouth and destroy him with the brightness of His coming (2 Thess. 2:8).
We should also note that the Antichrist will definitely be a person and not an impersonal system. He is called the man of sin, also the son of perdition, and the opposer who sits in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. In Revelation 19:20 it is confirmed that he will be a living person on earth on the day of the Second Coming of Jesus. He will, of course, have an ideology and a system of government, but as a living person he will be the head of the system. The Antichrist and the false prophet will form a two-man government in which they will establish Satan’s authority on earth and act in terms of his wishes:
"And the dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority" (Rev. 13:2).
  • O my people, hear my word: make you ready to thy battle, and in those evils be even as pilgrims upon the earth.
