The 95th day – The Antichrist
Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for [that day will not come] until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. — 2 Thessalonians 2:3
2 Thessalonians is a follow up letter to 1 Thessalonians. In this letter, Paul indicates various events that must precede the second coming of Christ. Just as what today’s verse has described ‘That day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction.” This period of extreme turmoil on the earth is known as the GREAT TRIBULATION.
Throughout history there have been individuals who epitomized evil and who were hostile to everything Christ stands for. These antichrists have lived in every generation and will continue to work their evil. Then Just before Christ’s second coming, “the man of lawlessness… the man doomed to destruction,” a completely evil man, will arise. He will be Satan’s tool, equipped with Satan’s power (2:9). This lawlessness man will be THE antichrist.
Here is a very interesting video describing “the Antichrist” using actual bible verses. The words of God in this video provides us a pretty good understanding on this subject, though the video images can be slightly better.
