Who is The False Prophet?


We are warned in scripture that there are many antichrists (1 John 2:18) and that there are many false prophets (1 John 4:1). We also know that in the end there will be an individual that appears who John called “antichrist” (1 John 2:18) and Paul described as “that man of sin” and “the son of perdition” (2 Thessalonians 2:3). But there is also an individual named in the bible who is known as “the false prophet”. This person is so powerful that he actually has the authority to give life (spirit) to an “image” of this “antichrist” and cause humans to worship this person and to receive a “mark” without which they will not be able to buy or sell and all of those that do not accept this “mark” will be killed. Now is not the time to dilly-dally around soaking up pleasures in this life or bewailing the tragedies in this life while disregarding the very thing that has been given to us to make us free – the Truth. There are two things that we must come to terms with in order to be saved: 1.) we have to have an excessive love of the truth; and 2.) we must obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. Like your elementary school teacher used to say: “time to put on our thinking caps!” and let’s explore this character that we know as “The False Prophet”.
