Discussion for Daniel 8:23

  • Timothy Wayne George for verse 23
    When evil will have run its course, a king of fierce face shall come to power, understanding dark sayings. This will be the Antichrist, who will deceive the whole world with his charisma and cause them to receive the mark of the beast 666. Make sure you do not accept that mark, for it is a covenant of death. The Church will be raptured, and not go into the great tribulation. This is the mystery of sin that the Apostle Paul told about in II Thes. 2
