False prophets will deceive people Jesus had a message for those who would be arrested and brought to trial during that time: Jesus also said, Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with dissipation, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day [of the Lord] will close on you unexpectedly like a trap. For it will come upon all those who live on the face of the whole earth Luke Commenting on these words by Jesus, Larry W. Poland, in How to Prepare for The Coming Persecution , has written, God recognizes that things will be so tough that even the sheep will be tempted to be discouraged or escape into heavy drinking or let the anxieties of life get to them.
Jesus exhorts them not to let that happen. How awful that day will be! None will be like it. Jesus made a virtually identical prediction centuries later: What this means is that if humankind were left to its own misguided endeavors and undertakings, we would annihilate ourselves completely. I tend to believe that most of the inhabited world will be affected, including the USA if it turns its back on Israel; otherwise, I hope that God somehow will protect this country from the worst of it Gen.
In this huge church, there will be no place for God-fearing Jews nor evangelical Christians although a segment of this church probably will be composed of pseudo-Christians. This lust for worship will be intensified after his humiliating ejection and barring from heaven at the midpoint of the 70th Week. He will receive the veneration he desires from much of the world subsequent to his empowering of the Antichrist The world would be astonished that such a stable comeback could be made, causing people worldwide to follow the mandates and rulings of the EU. Subsequently, to counterfeit the resurrection of Jesus Christ, Satan would be allowed by God to resurrect the Antichrist back to life again.
The world would be astonished at the seeming invincibility of this man. It would be assumed that he must be the real Messiah, and allegiance would be given to him. I believe that either or both of these depictions could be possible.

Anyone without the mark will not be able to buy or sell If one of the factors enabling the Antichrist to gain world power is world economic collapse, then it will not be difficult for a panicked world to accept most any mandate from anybody in charge. I believe that God will provide for and sustain those who refuse to take it For the first time in history, the technology now is here to implant a subcutaneous microchip with a host of information about the individual into whom it is being implanted.
It already is being used to track down lost animals.

Likewise, there seemingly will be numerous advantages when used on people. Abducted or lost people can be found. Drug deals will be reduced due to the elimination of cash. It will be difficult or impossible for people to cheat on their taxes. And credit card and check fraud will stop because there will be no need for credit cards nor checks.
P-V, S-1 —would be very obvious and unmistakable: Paul gave a similar warning to all who might accept, receive, and welcome the false messiah before the true one returns: Because of the signs he was given power to do on behalf of the first beast [the Antichrist], he deceived the inhabitants of the earth Rev.
I tend to believe, however, that God simply will allow incredible, supernatural miracles to be performed by the False Prophet.
Those who do not have a firm foundation on the rock of God and His precepts will be swept away by the captivating miracles and deception of that time Luke 6: God will allow Satan and demons a significant but limited amount of power to perform counterfeit miracles through false Christs and false prophets Matt. These miracle workers probably will beguile Jews who have fled at the midpoint of the 70th Week to hiding places in the wilderness and who are unaware of what is going on in Jerusalem, causing them to come out, unsuspectingly, into the open Matt.
It will be to their benefit to acknowledge these warnings to the ancient children of Israel: The Lord your God is testing you to find out whether you love him with all your heart and with all your soul. It is the Lord your God you must follow, and him you must revere. Keep his commands and obey him; serve him and hold fast to him Deut. I believe that non-Christians and even many Christians will have a difficult time distinguishing between those miraculous signs performed and increasing in number by God through Spirit-filled Christians and those executed by Satan through false messiahs, false prophets, witches, wizards, and sorcerers.

Look at the amazing special effects today in movies and even on TV commercials. C-3, P-III and who follow those who perform satanic miracles. He also will place a strong deception of falsehood into their minds. As Paul added, They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. John, at the time he envisioned the newly-built temple at the midpoint of the 70th Week Rev. They will be in Jerusalem, and they will be invulnerable to any type of enemy attack These two men will be given supernatural power to cause it not to rain and to bring plagues upon the earth Whom are these two men, whom I believe will be valid witnesses and foretellers of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ in the air at the Rapture?
There is much speculation about their identities. Since he never yet died nor received his glorified body, and since it is appointed for man once to die Heb. The identity of the other man is more questionable. The only other person recorded in the Bible to have been translated to heaven without dying was Enoch Gen. He also prophesied about judgment Jude 14, As the Day of the Lord will be the final attempt by God to bring a rebellious world to repentance turning away from its sinful ways and toward God , then Enoch certainly is a likely candidate to be one of the two witnesses.
Another witness candidate is Moses, the one who announced the plagues which God poured out upon Egypt Exo. However, the Bible clearly states that Moses did die and was buried by God Plus, Michael and Satan disputed over his body Jude 9a. Now, the Book of Revelation primarily is one of prophecy; thus, these seven letters most assuredly have some prophetic as well as historic significance. So, although the messages were directed to the people in those early churches, I feel strongly that the information contained within also has direct application to the Christian Church of the last days, which will have to endure the time of the Great Tribulation—the greatest time of distress and affliction the world has ever known up to that time Dan.
The points of advice to the Christians at this future time mainly seem to revolve around repentance , endurance , and overcoming. There are similarities but also differences among the three.

Those in the Ephesus church were told, Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken your first love. Remember the height from which you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place Rev.
Many Christians during the first half of the 70th Week will lose the zeal and excitement for God that they previously possessed. I believe that many of these will be disillusioned with God, feeling He has abandoned the Church in this time of world sorrow and pain. The exhortation is to regain their initial love for God and to begin again to lead lives and to perform deeds worthy of Christians. Otherwise, they will be in danger of being left unprotected and open to severe persecution, even unto death.
To many in the church of Pergamum, whose Christian faith previously was exemplary, the message involved a warning not to follow the teachings of false religions: Nevertheless, I have a few things against you: You have people there who hold to the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to entice the Israelites to sin by eating food sacrificed to idols and by committing sexual immorality [ Num. Likewise, you also have those who hold to the teaching of the Nicolaitans.
Otherwise, I will soon come to you and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth Rev. Similar indulgences were practiced by members of the church in Thyatira: Nevertheless, I have this against you: You tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess. By her teaching she misleads my servants into sexual immorality and the eating of food sacrificed to idols. I have given her time to repent of her immorality, but she is unwilling. So I will cast her on a bed of suffering, and I will make those who commit adultery with her suffer intensely, unless they repent of her ways Rev.
They may be Christians, but they will not be leading exemplary lives. A word of repentance also was given to the church at Sardis: I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead. Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have not found your deeds complete in the sight of my God. Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; obey it, and repent. But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what time I will come to you Rev. The works and deeds of many Christians during the 70th Week will not reflect a true Christian faith James 2: Finally, the recommendation of repentance was given to the church of Laodicea: I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot.
I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.
Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest, and repent. I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will go in and eat with him, and he with me Rev. The church at Ephesus was told, I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance. I know that you cannot tolerate wicked men, that you have tested those who claim to be apostles but are not, and have found them false. You have persevered and have endured hardships for my name, and have not grown weary Rev.
Those in the church of Smyrna were given the message, I know your afflictions and your poverty—yet you are [spiritually] rich! Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer.
Part III: The Lamb and The Dragon Lyrics
I tell you, the devil will put some of you in prison to test you, and you will suffer persecution for ten days. Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you the crown of life Rev.
Persecution will become intense for many Christians, but they are encouraged to maintain absolute faith and hope to get through. Christians at the time should heed these words of inspiration: So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.
You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised. But my righteous one [Christian] will live by faith. The people in the Philadelphian church were encouraged with this promise: Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come upon the whole world to test those who live on the earth Rev.
It is interesting to note that no fault was found with this church as it was with the others. Oh, let them die!
