Many antichrists have been appearing between Christ’s first and second comings, but the greatest Antichrist, the lawlessness one, will rise to power during The End Times. He will be a liar, a deceiver and won’t acknowledge Christ. Many will be easily deceived and will embrace the Antichrist because his spirit will already dwell in the world. Brethren, move closer to God now to appear before Christ when He calls you before or at His Second Coming. Acknowledge the Grace of God before the apparition of the Antichrist in the world scene, because thereafter it will be difficult to repent and believe in the Gospel.
“For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work. But the one who restrains is to do so only for the present, until he is removed from the scene. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord [Jesus] will kill with the breath of his mouth and render powerless by the manifestation of his coming, the one whose coming springs from the power of Satan in every mighty deed and in signs and wonders that lie, and in every wicked deceit for those who are perishing because they have not accepted the love of truth so that they may be saved.” (2 Thessalonians 2:7-10)
“The arrival of the Antichrist cannot occur until sufficient Apostasy has happened in the world,” according to the article Apostasy. Then the unrestrained Antichrist will manifest himself with satanic deeds, signs and wonders to deceive the wicked which will perish because they have rejected Christ. He will annihilate on His Second Coming the Antichrist. He is already alive, and the best way to avoid satanic deceit is consistency in the state of grace and the closeness to God.
“For at that time there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will be. And if those days had not been shortened, no one would be saved; but for the sake of the elect they will be shortened.” (Matthew 24:21-22)
“Satan also knows that Christ will annihilate all His enemies on His Second Coming to the World, so Satan will launch a fierce last battle against the Catholic Church to cause the damnation of many faithful… Satan is a master of lying, disguise, false promise and destruction. He will gradually instigate war and falsehood till the End of the World through a legion of false prophets. They will operate obscurely on social media and openly on heinous activities such as abortion, genocide, rape, narcotics and satanic cult…” according to the article The Great Tribulation.
