I have to say I get really REALLY frightened by people using biblical prophesies from 2000 years ago to portray a human as being the "Devil".
When you believe something so strongly what is to stop you from doing ANYTHING possible from preventing this person from existing?
Truly frightening and scary thought.
If you believe that a certain human being is the "Anti-Christ" what WOULDN'T you be willing to risk to prevent this person from existing?
You scare me more than any middle eastern terrorist ever could because you are my neighbor.
Horrifically Frightened of your beliefs and ideas
It would be more useful to focus on how the AntiChrist will be revealed and what he will do so you can stay out of his way while warning others not to follow him.

Whoa, slow down "Jumps to Conclusions", I didn't say christianity sucked...
My beef is with religious fundamentalism, regardless of religion! I don't think it should be overlooked or okay for christians to espouse these crazy fundamentalist outlooks that involve overtly bizarre and bigoted ideas, when others are persecuted for them.
Fundamentalism leads down a narrow minded path that disallows the views of others to be recognized. It causes fights on both large and small scales that can ultimately lead to hate crimes, and wars, therefore it should be rooted out of all nonsecular belief systems.
If you can't concede to that as a valid point, then there is no hope for you, and I don't have the time, energy, patience, desire, or concern enough to enlighten you. Either you'll grow up, or you won't...so be it.
Through the miracles that the beast will grant the false prophet to perform, the latter will deceive many,
telling them to make an image to the beast (13:14): And he will be given power to give life unto the image of 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 all be killed (Rev.13:11-12, 14-15).
From the second verse of the nineteenth chapter of the Book of Revelation, one can conclude that it is precisely thanks to the false prophet that many people will accept the mark of the beast.
However, three and a half years later the reign of lawlessness will come to an end, for the Lord Jesus Christ will appear in glory(Not as He first appeared but as God and King with His Angels) and overwhelm all the enemies of God.
And the devil will be 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 (Rev. 20:10).
I'm sorry but that's all just a total load of crap.
I was wondering if anyone could clarify REV. chapter 20 for me.

Hey helen670, God and Jesus are really trying to tell me to tell you that if you try to preach to me it's like preaching to someone who is already preaching the truth to you. So they have told me to send you forth in a manner worthy of God, that you may hear the truth of the Gospel I have been given. I do not acknowledge anything that is not in the Gospels unless it is canonical to be true, but this is the "little book" I am preaching to you. Only the wise in the end of times will understand. It is sweet as honey meaning I understand it and it makes sense and I think it's amazing, but it is bitter because of the other things which are also in it.
Think of it like Paul's testimony in Acts 23. They knew him not as a high priest.
"Then there arose a great outcry, and the scribes of the Pharisees' party arose and protested, saying, "We find no evil in this man; but if a spirit or an angel has spoken to him, let us not fight against God."
Why must I be rejected by everyone?
“Yet one little while,
and I will move the heaven and the earth,
and the sea,
and the dry land,
And I will move all nations, — And the Desired of all Nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory,
saith the Lord of hosts…
Great shall be the glory of this last house, more than the first…” (Aggeus 2:6-7).
“Behold the Man whose name is the BRANCH,
From His place He shall branch out,
and He shall build the Temple of the Lord…
He shall be a priest on His throne” (Zach. 6:12-13).
“Behold I send My Angel (the prophet John) and he shall prepare the way before My face and presently the Lord whom you seek shall unexpectedly come into His temple,
and the Angel of the Testament whom you desire.
Behold He comes, saith the Lord of Hosts” (Mal. 3:1).
God the Father calls the Messiah “The desired of all Nations,” “Branch,” “Lord” and “Angel of the Testament.”
These names of the Messiah which were known to the Jews from previous prophecies bound all the numerous preceding prophecies regarding Christ into a whole.
Malachias was the last Old Testament prophet.
His prophecy regarding the sending of the “Angel” to prepare the path for the Lord Who was to follow shortly, ends the mission of the Old Testament prophets and begins the period of awaiting the coming of Christ.
We can only agree to the prophecy brought forth by Zacharias that the Messiah was to found the Lord’s Temple.
Here the discourse is not about the founding of a stone Temple (which could not possibly hold all peoples) but of a spiritual one — Churches of the Faithful. Since God inhabits the souls of the faithful as in a Temple. (Lev. 26:12).
He told the Judeans that they should delve into the Scriptures, because the Scriptures witness of Him (John 5:39).
He also said that He is the Stone, Who is to sit on the right hand of the Father, alluding to Psalm 110 (Mt. 22:44).
Jesus Christ also said that He was the “Stone” cast out by the “builders,” alluding to the well-known prediction in Psalm 118 (Mt. 21:42).
Before His sufferings Jesus Christ reminded His followers that “that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me” (Luke 22:37, Is. 53rd ch.)
