If I may. There are two "BEASTS" aka SYSTEMS that the Bible speaks of. One is a POLITICAL SYSTEM that receives a deadly wound and rises again as a RELIGIOUS system. It is this RELIGIOUS system that ALL the world,all but the Elect (144,000) will be a part of. This includes every so called church,religion or what have you in the world today will be deceived by the beast ( religious) SYSTEM. This includes those that profess to be Christians today YOU TOO WILL BE DECEIVED AND WILL WORSHIP THE RELIGIOUS SYSTEM THAT SATAN THE ANTI-CHRIST WILL START UP.<quoted text>
And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
In no way is this indicating a church!!!! The Bible does not teach the anti-Christ will found a church....
So called Christians are gonna think that entity called the ANTI-CHRIST is actually Christ so they will flock to him in droves. WHY? Because they are not as familiar with the word of God as they should be so they will think that the first entity that arrives on the scene is actually the real Christ.
Given the fact that they are clueless as to what the real mark of the Beast really is, they have already been primed for deception and they will accept the mark of the Beast just as surely as water is wet.
