The Antichrist and Mark of the Beast: How Close Are We?

Generations of scholars, both secular and religious, politicians and Christian believers, have had their choice for the Antichrist. Included in that list throughout history have been Nero, Napoleon, Hitler, the Pope, Henry Kissinger, Gorbachev and any number of American presidents.

The Antichrist will be possessed of Satan, and halfway through his time as the ruler of the world, he will have murdered over one quarter of the world's population. Those he doesn't murder will be required to worship him and take his sign, the mark of the beast. Some even suggested at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic that the vaccine would become the precursor to his evil mark. That of course is to be debated.

Yet we are becoming a totally digital, highly technological world, where a nanochip controls everything. How close are we? A number of things still must happen before that becomes clear. One thing is certain, however. His arrogance will be so great he will walk into the temple of God in Jerusalem and desecrate it in an act called the abomination of desolation. But ultimately, he will be removed from power forever by Jesus, the Messiah, who will return and be victorious over all.
