Revelations 18-24, describes this cruel, heartless religious system upon whose head is written, the mystery of Babylon which refers to the type of demon worship. The occult has always been associated with ancient Babylon. This backslidden church will bring Antichrist to power by supporting his system. She is concerned with philosophy behind the state speaking the
Utopian propaganda and controlling people. The followers will choose humanitarianism, medicine, science, machinery and worldly happiness in preference to God. The value and purpose of human life will be subjected to the state and Antichrist.
Antichrist will be an intellectual of high caliber, the ultimate political ruler who arises to power speaking peaceful solutions to serious problems promising a new world utopia but he will actually do the work of Satan. He will appear the diplomat – peace-maker and perfect gentleman, while ruling with an iron hand. Nevertheless, he possesses all the evil aspects of Mephistopheles, corrupt, satanic, and doomed. His goal is to achieve the mental-spiritual enslavement of the world to force its worship to himself.
His subjects will be a classless people whose names will be replaced by numbers. Antichrist is a name taken from 1 and 2 John. In Daniel he is called the little horn and the vile person; in 2 Thessalonians as the Son of Perdition; and in Revelation as the Beast out of the sea. He will be indwelt by Abaddon. (Rev 9:11). “And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.”
His hatred of Jews, the people of the Bible, will drive him to try to eradicate them. He will rise to power as a man of peace and take the position as the savior of a world threatened by destruction. The Tribulation will begin and last for seven years ending with the world on the brink of total annihilation at the battle of Armageddon.
