Revelation 13: The False Prophet & The Mark
[Note: There is a lot of speculation here, but interesting to ponder. I conclude with the last couple of paragraphs from the article, but there is much more in the link]
Here we are introduced to the False Prophet, and for this study, I’m going to suggest that, indeed, the False Prophet – the beast out of the earth – is related to Israel in one sense or another. With this attribute in mind, let us look into what I believe are the three premiere “candidates” for this office. (But truthfully, like the Antichrist, we may never know who this person is this side of the rapture).
