Antichrist, the King of the World
The second half of the Tribulation begins begins when ten kings give power to the Antichrist (Revelation 17:12-13, 17
). Antichrist rules the beast (political system), False Prophet rules the second beast (religious system) and they control people through the Mark of the Beast (economic system). (Revelation 13:2, 11-12, 16-17
). See Unholy Trinity
After World War III, the world leaders are really desperate for a leader that will solve the world's problems. In the 1930's, Germany collapsed because of war debt and extreme inflation. The German people needed a strong leader to get them out of their economic depression. Their choice led to World War II, ~80 million dead and a devastated Europe. History repeats itself.
What we want is a man of sufficient stature to hold the allegiance of all people, and to lift us out of the economic morass into which we are sinking. Send us such a man and be he god or devil, we will receive him.
----Paul Henri Spaak, prime minister of Belgium, president of the UN General Assembly, president of the European Union Parliament, secretary general of NATO
Satan is the prince and power of the air. Since he cannot defeat God, his purpose is to kill and destroy. Satan tempted Jesus Christ by offering Him the world (Matthew 4:8-9
). Jesus refused but Satan offers and Antichrist accepts. However, Satan knows his time is short (Revelation 12:12
). Antichrist has the leadership qualities and charisma of Pharaoh, Nebuchadnezzar, Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, Charlemagne, Napoleon, Hitler, Stalin and Mao with the supernatural power of Satan. His fatal flaws are pride and godlessness (Revelation 13:4-5
