If the Pre-Tribulation Rapture theory is true, then true Christians will never actually see who the Antichrist really is, because we will be taken away before the Tribulation begins and the Antichrist is revealed. But we can make guesses and warn people of the dangers of following the Antichrist, how to identify him, and how deceptive he will be!
If the Mid or Post Tribulation theories are true, then we will all watch the Antichrist rise to power. We will have to watch millions upon millions of people take the Mark of the Beast, condemning themselves to an eternity of torment. We will have to choose beheading or starvation instead of taking the mark. It will be a terrible time of trial and terror like the world has never seen before.
The scriptures about the Beast or the Antichrist give us some clues about what he will do, how he will behave, and how we can identify him to know he is the minion of Satan. Interestingly enough, Islam has many of the same prophesies about an end time Messiah, but all their prophesies are the reverse of Bible Prophesy. Their Messiah and Prophet sounds like the Bible’s description of the Antichrist and the False Prophet. Be on awares! There can be only one truth!
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
