Lafreak made a good comment and I think deserves a post on its own.

The AC takes the kingdom by flattering and tricks his way into some sort of position.
So if people are waiting for a savior or some sort of blatant tyrant then you will be waiting for a long time. The only savior that is coming will be Jesus.
The AC wont be saving anything, he walks into a system already set up and through government policy he will crush people who will think its the government doing it.
If people think the AC is going to show his true self then there will be no point because most people will realize and turn to GOD straight away and that isn’t God’s plan according to the prophets and Jesus.
Same as the flood back in the days of Noah, People will still have no idea that Jesus is about to return even right up to the actually hour.
Still also need to remember during the tribulation the mark of the beast isn’t going to go on every single person on the earth, its impossible.
The Mark will be a good way to drag Christians to hell with Satan as many so called Christians will get it in panic mode not realizing tribulation is happening at that time.
SO Does SATAN care if a non christian gets the mark.. Probably not because he already has them condemned as they haven’t accepted Jesus anyway.
Ill state this again, THE Mark of the beast is a good way for God to weed out the true believers.
People need to look outside the box, example (and sorry for the long post).
Think about this:
Does Satan like child sacrifice?
Most people would think YES but in reality i’m sure he wouldn’t. A child being killed will most certainly go the the Lord due to he or she never had a chance to repent.
So a situation like the occult killing kids for Satan is not really making Satan happy, It is more the opposite because he never got to corrupt the child.
Thing is look around and you will see it doesn’t have to be that bad to be tyranny.
Look at NATO and the EU/US they are taking out dictators all over the place at the moment so there wont be a blatant one in the EU he will remain in the background calling the shots more than likely.
Additional comment by Wickus:
Its been for years that I feel that the rise of the antichrist will not be so spectacular as believed by many people. The clear sign for those who watch will be the AoD event, although I think it is not going to be as spectacular as many think. There might still be doubt after the event if it was really THE AoD that we were waiting for.
Hey, I hope I am wrong and that everything will play out clearly and without doubt, but Jesus said that it will be like in the days of Noah and Lot. Nobody understood until it was too late. Most people also did not believe Jesus was the Messiah when He walked the earth although he fulfilled many prophecies. I can see no reason why the return of Christ will be a front page event when in the times of Noah, Lot and Jesus prophecies were fulfilled, but few noticed. When Jesus were crucified, the disciples surely thought that it was all done. He could not have been the Messiah. They did not see that prophecy was fulfilled. What would you have thought if you were there? What makes today different?
Stay awake and stay watching!
