If you've Biblically studied and Prayed over the above 5 article links you are now Spiritually ready to understand the AntiChrist Beast. God sends this "Beast" to oppress those who refuse to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior (Numbers 21:5-9; John 3:14; John 3:15-16; Revelation 17:1-16).
Yes the Antichrist Beast (Man Of Sin) is presently alive and ruling.The Beast will not be inhabited by Satan until the Beast has established His "One World Religious Order" Against Tribulation (Left Behind)Christians And The Seed Of Jacob (Israel) (God's House-Temple-Holy Place-Sanctuary) (2 Thessalonians 2:1-4, 5-6, 7-17; Matthew 24:3, 15; Revelation 17:1, 10-16; Revelation 13:1-5; Luke 22:3). This Religious "One World Order" Is The "False Prophet" (Ram-Two Horned Lamb) (Revelation 13:11-18; Matthew 7:13-29; Revelation 16:13; Revelation 19:20; Genesis 22:13; Daniel 8:3-14, 15-27).
Godly Obedient Christians Willnot Rapture Until The Beast Rules Over His "One World" Religous System Declaring Himself To Be God (2 Thessalonians 2:1-17; Matthew 24:15; Hebrews 12:22; Galatians 4:24-25; 1 Thessalonians 4:14-17). Satan will continue to use anarchy to bring World Governments under the Beast's control (Revelation 13:1-18; Revelation 17:10-16). As soon as the AntiChrist Beast rules over "oneness" Christians can be eager to meet Jesus (in the Air). The Antichrist Beast will rule over the entire earth (world) (Revelation 3:10; Revelation 17:10-16). Planet Earth can expect to experience more turmoils and wars until the Nations agree to a "One World" scenario.
Obedient Christians Will Rapture As the AntiChrist Beast declares that He is God (2 Thessalonians 2:1-17). At that moment in time (1 Corinthians 15:50-54; 1 Thessalonians 4:16) Planet Earth will become Spritually (and Possibly actually) Dark (Night, Evening, Darkness-John 13:30; Luke 22:3; Matthew 5:14; Revelation 8:1). The Beast will then lead the "Time Of The Gentiles" upon Israel and "Left Behind" Christians. These will be "pounded" by the Beast for three to three and one half years. This pounding (Winepress Revelation 14:1-20) will cause these disobedient servants to cry to God. He will then "return" to Earth to save these repentant servants (Revelation 19: 1-21; Luke 12:36; Luke 11:9).
Obedient Christians should continue to watch the Beast and the news for tidings of "oneness" (Revelation 17:10-16; Daniel 11:44). Until then Christians will not Rapture. We are commanded to Watch And Pray (Mark 13:33).
