A Great Religious War Is Coming
The Final Bible prophecies picture the greatest Religious conflict and mass deception ever witnessed. The Bible indicates that the majority of the world will either be deceived and/or forced into adhering to the final false religious movement.

"...all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who [is] like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?" Revelation 13:3-4



Question: How would professed Christians fall for such a deception?
Answer: The false "antichristian" religious movement will appear to be Christian on the surface. Indeed it will even arise from within Christianity. See Acts 20:29-31, 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4, Matthew 24:24


Satan will Work through two Principle Agencies
The "Dragon" of Revelation 13 represents Satan(See Rev. 12:9) who will work through two main agencies at the end of time, the first and second beast of Revelation 13. Bible scholars refer to these beasts as the Antichrist and the False Prophet. The false prophet works to promote the false religious doctrine of the first beast, the Antichrist.

"And I beheld another beast... And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed." Revelation 13:11-12

Question: What does a "beast" represent in Bible prophecy?
Answer: Beasts, or animals, are used to represent kings and their kingdoms. (See Daniel 7:17-23.)

The characteristics of the beast or animal symbol employed is used to help illustrate the characteristics of the king or kingdom it is a symbol of.

Here is an example:
"The ram which thou sawest having two horns are the kings of Media and Persia." (Daniel 8:20)

Another Example: Jesus the king of kings is often described in the Bible as the "Lamb of God."

Question: Can you think of ways that Jesus was like a lamb?
Answer: Jesus was gentle, pure, and yielding, and never used force to garner religious adherents(see Matthew 11:28-29). When Jesus finally gave His life to pay the penalty for our sins, the Bible prophets predicted that He would be brought like a lamb to the slaughter. Isaiah 53:7 What was Jesus like before his persecutors? Even in the most trying circumstances He was quiet and gentle like a lamb.


Religious Liberty & Freedom of Conscience Will be Denied
In contrast to the way Jesus worked, the Antichrist and False prophet will use deception and eventually economic force and physical violence to secure followers.

"...and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all...to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 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." (See these verses Revelation 13:15-17 in their entirety.)


The Final Crisis will be a Worldwide Battle over Worship
The last day prophecies of the Book of Revelation predict a final great war over worship.

"And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ." Revelation 12:17

This war is nothing new, it is a continuation of a war that started in Heaven and has continued throughout history. By prayerfully looking at the Bible record you can get a more clear picture of what the final war will be over.

Notice the similarities in the conflicts below with what is prophesied in the book of Revelation for the future.


 
"Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am he."

Just Two Groups at the End of the World
There will be just two groups at the end of the world. Those who worship the Beast and His Image who will receive the Seven Last plagues, and those who worship the True God, the Creator.

The Warning Against False Worship
"And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive [his] mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God." Revelation 14:9-10

The Call from Heaven to True Worship
"Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters." Revelation 14:7
Jesus Died on the Cross to Save you from your Sins
Who is it that made the heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters you may ask? It is Jesus, the same One who died on the cross to save you from your sins.

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made...And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us...the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. " John 1:1-3, 14, 10

He can give you "power to become the sons of God" and be ready for His return. John 1:12

Dear Friends, we encourage you to worship the One who made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters today!

Special Notes:

Note#1 "That the Church of Rome has shed more innocent blood than any other institution that has ever existed among mankind, will be questioned by no Protestant who has a competent knowledge of history . . . It is impossible to form a complete conception of the multitude of her victims, and it is quite certain that no powers of imagination can adequately realize their sufferings." (W. E. H. Lecky, History of the Rise and Influence of the Spirit of Rationalism in Europe, vol. 2, p. 32, 1910 edition)

Note#2 Please keep in mind that these prophecies which expose the Roman Catholic church are aimed at the religious institution and not individuals. There are sincere, devout Christians in all churches, and many in the Roman Catholic church are living up to all the light that they have. Be assurred that God will call them into the light of His truth, see Revelation 18:1-4, His true children will hear His voice and leave Babylon and follow Him. John 10:27
