False Prophet


The false prophet is the second beast: "And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spoke as a dragon. And he exercised all the power of the first beast before him, and causes the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

And he does great wonders, so that he makes fire come down from heaven to earth in the sight of men. And deceives them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life to the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. 

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their, forehead. And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name."

Just like the Anti-christ, the False Prophet will at first look good, even to religious people. 

Just like satan can disguise himself as an angel of light, the False Prophet has two horns like a lamb which is a symbol of Jesus but this man will speak as a dragon which is a symbol of satan. 

The False Prophet will speak with the authority and power of the Anti-Christ, so we can deduce that they will be working together but the one with two horns will serve the other. 

The false prophet may be a religious leader, possibly even a confessing Christian and will presume to act in the name of the Lord.

Right wing Christendom today with its luke-warm prosperity message, its delusions of the New World Order and worship of the economic manifest destiny of America is primed and ready for the False Prophet to lead them down the path of least spiritual resistance. It is easy to see a political/religious leader today heading up a right wing law and order campaign or a military hero funding death squads and thanking God for the privilege. 

With Television showing missile attacks to viewers all over the world, it is easy to imagine fire coming down from heaven in the sight of men. These perilous times are already upon us.

It is the false prophet that will make the image of the Beast come alive and demand the worship. A man like this can produce all kinds of miracles such as peace, prosperity, popular legalistic oppression, illiberal political victories, upholding religious oppression with false unity and suppressing spiritual truth. The church of the whore Babylon will love him and consider him their leader. It is the False Prophet that will enforce the mark of the Beast or the number of His name (666).

And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. 

And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. And the beast was taken, and with him, the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

The overcomers will be persecuted for not accepting the mark of the beast or the number of his name but in reality will be protected. Revelation 15:2 - "And I saw something like a sea of glass mingled with fire, and those who have victory over the beast, over his image and over his mark and over the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, having harps of God."

In Revelation 4:6 the sea of glass is described as being before the throne of God. These are tribulation saints during the seven years of Gods wrath upon the world, and they have not worshiped the beast, received his mark, or worshiped the image of the beast, or received the number of his name. They are seen standing before the throne of God. Death in the midst of this tremendous tribulation is a welcome assent into heaven.

Also, the false prophet does not make the image to the beast, he only causes it to come alive. Verse 13:14 says "...saying to them that dwell on the earth (globally), that THEY should make an image to the beast." Giving life to the image of the beast is only capitalizing on the delusion that God has already sent them for believing a lie. 

The lie speaks through the false prophet and causes as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. It is in the voluntary delusion of the people that causes the image of the beast to speak and be worshipped due to his miraculous nature. The false prophet will them cause all (globally) to receive the mark.

The Anti-christ and the false prophet are so closely aligned in scripture that it is hard to tell one from the other but one thing that we do know for sure is that: "the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. 

These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone." "And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever."

Twice, the false prophet is associated with the First Beast (Anti-Christ) and once with the dragon. As the Dragon and the first beast are persons, so the false prophet must be a person.

The false prophet will therefore be a consummation of deception and wickedness, signified by his mystical number, 666. As an aid to the Anti-Christ, he is one of the principal characters revolting against God at the end time prior to the second coming, both riding on the whore Babylon.
