Don’t Worship Men or Angels - Part IV

"8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. 10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ." Galatians 1:8-10
In this post, we will continue a message titled “Don’t Worship Men or Angels.”

1. Don’t Worship Men

c) The Antichrist
In Daniel 8, the prophet Daniel speaks about the antichrist coming to power. In Daniel 8:23-25 it says “23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up. 24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people. 25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.” Notice the part of verse 24 that says “And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power:” the antichrist will be in the power of satan. In II Thessalonians 2:8-9 it says “8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,” Also, in Revelation 13:2 it says “And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.” The beast in Revelation 13:2 is the antichrist. In Revelation 12:9 it tells us who the dragon is. In Revelation 12:9 it says “9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”
