This goes against free will....God will not allow Free will to misused!
If God does not allow feel will to be misused ...then he does not allow free will at all.
He will allow the mark to be forced. It is part of his plan to teach arrogant mankind that he is lost when he rejects divine guidance. It is also a
time for all souls on earth to choose their future direction. As above , so below.
You choose or reject the physical mark, but you also choose or reject spiritual advancement or stagnation.
How do you conclude that the Antichrist has no children ?
The Book of Isaiah deals with a prophecy of the End Times king of Babylon (Antichrist). Isaiah 14 20 - 21. [you will not join them in burial, for
you have destroyed your land and killed your people. The offspring of the wicked will never be mentioned again. Prepare a place to slaughter his sons
for the sins of their forefathers; they are not to rise to inherit the land and cover the earth with their cities.
You are correct in that he will be a military leader. At the time of his rise PC will be the leader of the EU, and as such the Commander in Chief of
all NATO forces. The US is out of the game as a result of its loss to Russia/China alliance in WW3. The Antichrist, leading NATO will eventually war
with the Russia/China alliance and defeat them. He then effectively controls the entire world.
Let's look at the Whole of the chapter of Esaias(ISAIAH)...Esaias is in the Greek.
The Greek Old Testament (Septuagint)....translated into English...
This is prophecy related to what has already happened,it was prophecy relating to who the Messiah will be and what will happen and how His own people
will treat him....
At that time Isaiah was ardently exposing the wrongdoing of the Jewish King, Manasseh.
The impious King placed altars to pagan idols in Solomon’s Temple. However,
at the end of Manasseh’s life,
after being taken captive and put in prison,
he repented and asked God’s forgiveness.
Under the influence of their impious King,
the Jewish people began to completely forget the true God.
The Jews even stopped celebrating the Passover and other feasts established by Moses.
The holy Prophet Isaiah endured a martyr’s death. For exposing the wrongdoing of King Manasseh, he was sawed in two.
Note: See II Kings, chaps. 16 and 18-23; II Chronicles, chaps. 28-35; Book of Isaiah and other prophets.
This also confirms Jesus Christ WORD to the Jews.......Mark 7:5-9 ''Then the Pharisees and scribes asked him,
Why walk not thy disciples according to the tradition of the elders,
but eat bread with unwashen hands?
6 He answered and said unto them,
''Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites,
as it is written,
This people honoureth me with their lips,
but their heart is far from me.
7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me,
teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
8 For laying aside the commandment of God,
ye hold the tradition of men,
as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.
9 And he said unto them,
'' Full well ye reject the commandment of God,
that ye may keep your own tradition.
10 For Moses said,
Honour thy father and thy mother; and,
Whoso curseth father or mother,
let him die the death:........
The Holy Gospel according to Mark~
Read carefully the following Scripture.....
" (Esaias-Isaiah 53:5-7)
5/ But he was wounded on account of our sins,
and was bruised because of our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; [and] by his bruises we were healed.
6/ All we as sheep have gone astray; every one has gone astray in his way; and the Lord gave him up for our sins.
7/ And he, because of his affliction, opens not his mouth: he was led as a sheep to the slaughter,
and as a lamb before the shearer is dumb,
so he opens not his mouth.
8/ In [his] humiliation his judgment was taken away: who shall declare his generation?
for his life is taken away from the earth: because of the iniquities of my people he was led to death.
9/ And I will give the wicked for his burial,
and the rich for his death; for he practised no iniquity,
nor craft with his mouth.
This is Prophecy fulfillment of the Lord Jesus Christ... Did not all of this happen?
Here are a few more where it IS PROPHESIED that Jesus Christ will be REJECTED by His people......
They have rejected Me,
that I should not reign over them ... They have forsaken Me and served strange gods.(1 Kings 8:7-8)
1 Kings 8:7-8 And the Lord said to Samuel,
Hear the voice of the people,
in whatever they shall say to thee; for they have not rejected thee,
but they have rejected me from reigning over them.
8/ According to all their doings which they have done to me,
from the day that I brought them out of Egypt until this day,
even [as] they have deserted me,
and served other gods,
so they do also to thee.
They shall not please the Lord ... and their sacrifices shall be like the bread of mourners: all who eat it shall be defiled...Osee 9:4
1 Rejoice not,
O Israel, neither make merry,
as [other] nations: for thou hast gone a-whoring from thy Go; thou hast loved gifts upon every threshing-floor.
2 The threshing-floor and wine-press knew them not,
and the wine disappointed them.
3 They dwelt not in the Lord's land: Ephraim dwelt in Egypt,
and they shall eat unclean things among the Assyrians.
4 They have not offered wine to the Lord,
neither have their sacrifices been sweet to him,
[but] as the bread of mourning to them; all that eat them shall be defiled; for their bread for their soul shall not enter into the house of the
The most famous of the prophets living in the Israelite kingdom were, Elijah, Elisha and Jonah, and of the prophets living in the Judean kingdom,
Isaiah, Jeremiah, Micah, Ezekiel and Daniel....~The Prophets~
Christ annuls the first Covenant to establish the Second.
7/''Then said I,
I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will,
8/ Above when he said,
Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not,
neither hadst pleasure therein; which are offered by the law;
9/ Then said he,
I come to do thy will,
He taketh away the first,
that he may establish the second.
10/ By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
11/ And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:
Many shall come from the East and West and sit down with Abraham and Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of Heaven,
but the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into the exterior darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Children of the Kingdom?
Read the Verse carefully....this again is future prophecy of the non beleivers of Christ.
