Bible Study Outline on the Antichrist
The Second Coming of Jesus Christ
Recently, there has been many news about the second coming of Jesus Christ and rapture. Many people believed in the Mayan calendar and assumed the world is coming to an end on 21st December 2012. Many people started to have visions and dreams around this time concerning the rapture of the faithful. But when 21st December come, nothing happen. The bible already tell us that no one knows the hours of the second coming of Jesus Christ except the Father God. In Matthew 24:36 KJV, but of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. Therefore, setting a date concerning the second coming of Jesus Christ and rapture is against God’s words so it will not happen. One day, Jesus Christ will surely come back to rapture his faithful believers.
The Antichrist will Set Up the One World Government
After Jesus Christ had rapture the faithful believers, the antichrist will set up the one world government. He will be assisted by another person. He is the promoter of the antichrist. The antichrist is actually a man. His name is associated with the number 666. The promoter of the antichrist will perform many miracles to convince people to believe that he is a messenger from God. He will set up an image of the antichrist and miraculously make it speak so that people would worship the image as their god. The promoter of the antichrist will force everyone who to worship the image he set up including small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads. Many people are saying that this could be a RFID chip implanted in the forehead of right hand as a way of identifying the person. He will put to death anyone who refuse to worship the antichrist or take the 666 mark.
The antichrist and the promoter of antichrist are the workers of Satan. They will use deception to trick people into accepting the 666 mark. Anyone who accept the 666 mark will go to hell. If you want to get saved, you must accept Jesus Christ as your savior and not take the 666 mark. The 666 mark, which is placed on the forehead or right hand, is a requirement for carrying out any transaction including buying and selling. Without the mark, you will not be able to buy or sell anything. This means you cannot buy food or other things you need unless you have the mark.
Christians that Do Not Obey God’s Commandments and Non Believers will not Be Raptured
Non believers and Christians that neglect to obey God’s commandments will be left behind. If you want to be raptured, you must obey God’s commandments and walk in his ways. You must read God’s words in the bible regularly, set apart a time to worship God every day, keep the Sabbath, have fellowship with others and do all God’s commandments. YOu don’t have to keep looking for signs, visions and dreams concerning the second coming of Jesus Christ. Instead, you should continue your normal routine, and not look forward to a date when you think he will appear. Therefore, there is no need to keep discussing this things with your friends or posting on the forum about it. According to Revelation 7:1-8, 144,000 Israelites, 12,000 from each tribe will be saved and not accept the 666 mark of the devil.
“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.” (Revelation 13:11-18 KJV)
