Will the Antichrist rule the WHOLE world?

I had an email discussion with a friend the other day about the possibility that the Antichrist will not rule about over the whole world, all nations and people. The first reaction was the following:

Please show me in the Word that the AC WON’T rule the whole world ?

Rev 13 It was also given to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them, and authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation was given to him.

All who dwell on the earth will worship him everyone whose name has not been written from the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who has been slain.

I just love to discuss the Word. My response was as follows:

I will try my best to show you why I have doubts about the Antichrist worldwide rule. I think it may be more regionally based with a worldwide influence. Consider the following verses:

Eze 32:4 “Then will I leave thee upon the land, I will cast thee forth upon the open field, and will cause all the fowls of the heaven to remain upon thee, and I will fill the beasts of the whole earth with thee.”
In this verse, we would not say that every single animal all over the world is going to be eating the bodies of the fallen. It is impossible. 99.99% of the ‘beasts of the earth’ will be living elsewhere

Luk 2:1 “And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed.”
There was never a time when Caesar literally taxed all of the world.

1Ki 10:24 “And all the earth sought to Solomon, to hear his wisdom, which God had put in his heart.”
Another example of hyperbole to make a point. The entire literal earth did not seek after Solomon’s wisdom.

Dan 4:1 “Nebuchadnezzar the king, unto all people, nations, and languages, that dwell in all the earth; Peace be multiplied unto you.”
Nebuchadnezzar did not rule every single people and nation in the whole literal earth.

Rom 1:8 “First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world.”
Obviously, we know that the faith of Christ was not spoken throughout the whole literal world at this time.

When John was baptizing in Matt. 3: 5-6, we see something similar happening. We read, “Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judea, and all the region round about Jordan, And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins.” This sounds as if every living soul in all of Judea, Jerusalem, and everyone in the region of Jordan were baptized by John. Where in reality it is a synecdoche letting us know that there was a very large number of people who were baptized by John. Judea is the whole Southern Kingdom of Israel, which at that time was Israel. We know for a fact that not everyone in Israel was baptized by John.

Obviously all doesn’t always mean literally all. Now the question remains; Will the AC rule over all/the whole world or just a part of the world. Is Rev 13 an exception to the rule? If the other examples in Scripture did not mean the literal earth/all/everyone, can we say that Rev 13 does mean a literal earth/all/everyone?

There is more, but I will leave you with this for now.

Please join this discussion.

  1. Yes agree, Jesus will not be fighting the AC on his own he will have nations fighting with him, More than likely nations like the US, UK, Australia etc. But really its impossible to get the whole entire planet following in 3.5 year reign the AC has.

  6. Interesting article Wickus.

    I think it’s quite a good thing to point out that the old testament often speaks of the “whole world” when it is not. This has interesting implications, especially as far as the flood is concerned.

    But in my opinion, it seems when it speaks of every tribe language and nation, it is putting emphasis on it. So my view is the Antichrist will rule the whole world. But it won’t last very long. Perhaps at the peak of his rule it is a global rule. But the Antichrist’s empire is marred by lots of war, so it certainly won’t last very long time.

  12. The Antichrist will rule the Whole World – Just as Scripture says he will. Just because there will be nations that will be against him, doesn’t negate the fact that the Beast System or Empire that will be controlled by Satan and the Antichrist will not be at some point – even prior to the Return of Christ be under his total control. We must remember that the 4th and Final Kingdom that comes upon the World scene will be like none other. It will trample or trodden down every Nation, Empire or Kingdom – even with the wars that will ensue until the End. It will be the final kingdom, under Antichrist control before Christ Returns.

  14. “But these shall escape out of his hand”

    From scripture it appears to me that there is only one small area on the face of the earth
    that the man of sin/lawlessness does not gains control over. An area supernaturally protected by God (for 1,260 days/”a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent”) where the firstfruits/the 144,000 Jewish men, 12,000 from each of the 12 tribes
    have fled to and live. Day 1 of the 1,260 begins at the AoD?

    Daniel 11:41-45
    He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.
    He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape. But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps.
    But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.
    And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.

    Revelation 12:6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

    Revelation 12:14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.

    Revelation 12:17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

    More detailed info with regard to the man of sin.

    Revelation 13:4-7
    And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
    And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
    And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
    And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

    Vic, you asked in your comment above, “Who is left? Marked people? Doomed people?

    We can see in scripture that “late” in the 1,260 day reign of the man of lawlessness, as the 1st bowl/vial wrath judgment is poured out, that there are still people alive on the earth that have avoided being forced to take the mark of the beast. The “grievous sores” only came upon those that had the mark, which indicates that are people alive that have not taken the mark. See in the verses below.

    Revelation 16:1-2
    And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth.
    And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.

    There are people, both sheep and goats to be divided into two groups before Jesus begins His 1,000 year reign with a rod of iron on the earth. The sheep, Jewish believers w/ no mark of the beast will be alive in their current human body and enter into Jesus kingdom.

    Matthew 25:31-34
    When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
    And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
    And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
    Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

  17. what will consist of this “whole” earth. Will Russia, Iceland, Canada ect…exsist? Scripture says NO.
    How can he take control over the Whole earth and everyone in it in 3.5 years when he will be busy fighting wars? and if he is fighting wars then he only controls the people fighting with him..
    Luke 2:1 King James Version (KJV) Close
    1 And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed.

    Ceasar never taxed the whole world..

    Example there is around 2 billion Muslims on earth and the same number approximately 2.5 billion Christians maybe a bit more.. and over a billion Hindus, not to mention other religions.
    So The Antichrist wont control either Muslim or christian or Hindu so that’s well over half the worlds population he wont control.. Unless he is a Muslim ( and i know vic said this isn’t a Muslim AC post) but have to look at the facts in reality.
    If he is going to build a temple on the mount and that’s controlled by Muslims then how is that possible unless he is a Muslim and they will let a temple be rebuilt as they have stated but that’s another topic…

    Otherwise He will automatically be at war with 2 billion people. And the Christians will know who he is so that’s another 2.5 billion there about. So that population wont be taking any mark as Muslims will follow Allah no matter what and Christians will follow Jesus no matter what happens..
    He has to arise from a current religion to be accepted or i cant see it working. So if people want to think all 6.5 billion people will follow him or be in control by him then i think you will be waiting for a long time.

  18. This is a great discussion and we need to pray for wisdom. You all have valid points. Scott, I agree with you that some will escape from the AC rule as stipulated in Revelations. Hisown, I know how your mind works in this discussion. But then, I have to agree with Lafreak that I cannot see how the AC will take control and rule over the USA, Russia, China, India, the EU, the Middle East, Africa, etc and everyone will just willingly submit to his rule and worship him like a god. All these religions will not just submit to a man. But if he is in charge of the Levant who has a religion that force a person to submit or to die…. that sounds plausible. “Behead me Muhammad, I will not bow down to Allah.”

    But what seems impossible to me is possible to God. It is just that the currently a world wide antichrist rule does not look possible.

  19. glad for this discussion too because not quite sure of how this shakes out in my understanding either. i do wonder though–between the ecumenical religions (all of them come together apostate christian and non-christian alike) sway over the masses-deep deception-and to add to that the global economy in the hands of so few to control power and clean water, food, travel, etc and the fearful/insecure willing to sell their souls for some “peace and security” i can see a very very large portion of the world giving their power over to the mr “be-all-end-all” ac whose promises come from hell. he will have his enemies (individuals and some rogue governments) it sounds like in the Scripture but it does seem to me that the only real secure ones are the ones that God has hidden away and those that refuse ac mark are targeted (beheadings and starvation, etc – whatever cruelty ac wants to allow or employ to be rid of those against him). so i’m just taking this in to see what Scripture comes to light as this topic is brought forward. thanks to everyone for speaking up.

There are millions of fallen angels (1/3 of the angels) Some may look wondrous and be hailed, and some look terrible and be feared. If they give us the line that aliens seeded us, and can fix our problems like cancer with a genetically aligning chips….

  25. This thread is unintentionally hilarious because it would seem that people who want to escape the things to come are reading more into the scriptures in-between the lines than is actually there. Just as The Bible does not say anything about there being a Pre-tribulation so-called “rapture,” nor does The Bible say that whole nations will be given a Free Pass to go around the AC and pass Go and collect $200. The Bible’s English version explicitly says “every tribe and people and tongue and nation,” making no provisions for any exceptions. If you’re still here when he assumes his three+ year control, you would be wise to make peace with being martyred and beheaded, for according to The Bible, that will be your fate.

There is room next to the dome of the rock to put a temple there. If its not a rebuilt temple then what is it?
    Build a temple bringing some sort of peace between christians/jews/muslims then desecrate it with the islamic sign on top of it and sit in it proclaiming himself as a god or for another example: If he is a muslim AC he could say he is the 12 imam.

    Matthew 24:15 ESV

    โ€œSo when you see the abomination of desolation spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand),
    Revelation 11:1-2 ESV

    Then I was given a measuring rod like a staff, and I was told, โ€œRise and measure the temple of God and the altar and those who worship there, but do not measure the court outside the temple; leave that out, for it is given over to the nations, and they will trample the holy city for forty-two months.
    2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 ESV

    Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God.

    Remember the AC will honour the god of forces or fortresses depending on the bible you have,

    English Standard Version
    He shall honor the god of fortresses instead of these. A god whom his fathers did not know he shall honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and costly gifts.

    King James Bible
    But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.

    But he god of fortresses could be a few things. The AC obviously honors a God of forces, SO does he say is is a God or the God or makes people worship another god that he honours?.
    ————————————————————————————————————————
    On a side note for information: Islam is expecting a return of the 12th Imam or Mahdi to come and save Muslims from tyranny and rule the world under sharia law with Jesus who the Koran calls EESA at his side.
    The 12 imam is a linage as there was 11 before him and one to come so instantly you have 2 billion people onside if someone who they are waiting for anyway.
    They will worship him instantly and take any mark he wants them to take. It makes sense.
    The AC isn’t about a world dictator like Hitler its very religious and since it is religious i don’t believe a new religion will suddenly appear and billions of religious people will suddenly drop their religion and just bow down. It seems to be logical that the AC rises out of one of the current ones.

  30. If the AC stops sacrifice and offering then where do they start?
    Sacrifice happens were god tells them to do it and the temple was the last place he told them.. The Jewish people wont sacrifice unless there is a temple of some sort.
    Deuteronomy 12:13-14 (ESV)
    13 Take care that you do not offer your burnt offerings at any place that you see, 14 but at the place that the Lord will choose in one of your tribes, there you shall offer your burnt offerings, and there you shall do all that I am commanding you.

    SO this raises an issue: They stopped sacrifices after the destruction of the temple around 70 CE because there is no proper place to offer them. The Torah specifically commands not to offer sacrifices wherever we feel like it Deuteronomy 12:13-14; they are only permitted to offer sacrifices in the place that God has chosen for that purpose, which currently is the temple. If they don’t end up building one then they will more than likely erect some sort of structure or use the Dome of the Rock but i don’t see Jewish people using the Dome.

    I am not going to say yes or no to them rebuilding one but they do restart sacrifices and for sacrifices to resume then it will only happen in the temple. So they are trying to get it rebuilt unless God tells them to do it someplace else. ๐Ÿ™‚

(and the future temple gets built when the King of righteousness is here again?) there is a literal application to these issues for the jewish people to “finish” their religions observances (but when they finally see Jesus will know their attempts were in vain) because this is where this issue ends up……..

    At the very end of ALL things there is no longer a need for a temple why ?

    Because,,,,,,

    Revelation 21:22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.

  34. but the jews (nationally) do not share that with us hisown since as yet not saved. there is a literal application for them still outside of Christ….and then…..when they (who are real israel get saved) do come in to Christ. my daily reading is right now where all of this is spoken of in zechariah. and isaiah speaks to thiese things also. there is a temple for Jesus the Rod Bearer to rule from during His 1000 year reign on the earth and the nations will flow into it. does anyone else know what i’m referring to?

  35. “Thou shalt rule them with a rod of iron, and shalt break them in pieces like a potter’s vessel”
    what does that look like over time, Past or Future?

    Seems to me like the Shattering of Nation’s is nearly accomplished……….and the 1,000 years along with it.

    The Nations have flowed into it Andre’. In the Seed (singular) of Abraham, all Nations Have been Blessed….With the Gospel of Salvation in That Seed (Christ).

    Literal 1,000 year reign to come? Don’t know, could be, could be another dimension of the same prophecy.

    Hisown’s got it right about the Temple IMO…………..No more sacrifice will Ever be done to fulfill Daniel 9:27………Already been fulfilled.

    Only the Temple made without hands remains…and will Remain for All Eternity, Praise God for the High Priest of That Glorious Temple!

  37. hi tribber! have hoped to hear from you again!!! the jews hope to build the temple again but it won’t be them getting that done in my understanding (Jesus gets it done). the covenants with the land are going to be fulfilled when the not-so-nice neighbors have to relinquish (and then gladly because no longer going to hate their brother israel as before) what is the land that God originally said was for the jews His chosen for it (and failed to conquer fully)–those borders become much much larger with jerusalem as the world’s capital and the KING there reigning on His throne showing the nations of that generation what the temple was to really be all along–the Lord’s name is there-Jehovah Shammah as King and Priest to the world. the once shadowed understanding become reality. and yes i believe a dual fulfillment. the King of hearts manifested as the King of the whole world for 1000 years also fulfilling the seventh day of creation-a day is as a 1000 years-rest all around when the Prince of Peace takes His place on the earth. the Rod of Iron will be a good convincer for those even thinking about rebelling ๐Ÿ˜‰ because He Who wields it is perfectly just amen? some of what i understand and need to come to know better in time-the Lord is bringing me along-correcting me as needed. i just know Jesus will show us and one day i’ll have everything understood-right now not so much…… ๐Ÿ™‚ have missed you tribber. you are a good brother here.

  38. 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12 – There is a Powerful Delusion!!!! And I say that the Delusion has already been happening, and will continue to happen until the Antichrist is revealed… That Delusion will be very believable and convincing to all, and the Bible says that potentially even some of the elect might be fooled… Remember he sets himself up to be God…
    As far as there being a 3rd Temple built… I don’t think there will be a 3rd Temple… Our bodies are temples of the living God… 1 Cor 6:19-20
    The belief is that out of Chaos comes order and so there will be an event that will kick off, sort of speak, their new plan, however that new plan will not go as planned and will backfire on them… I believe then the will be an escape of the Bride at this time…
    I wonder if all the religions of the world are some how tied together via the Old Covenant Law??? Meaning each Religion has taken a part of that Law and made it a to do not or do list of things to live by… “Works” based religions (Including some Christian Organizations). Jesus through the New Covenant died for Sins once and for all, and so the Sin issue is removed, and thus only remains restoration of life, (Salvation) and that life is eternal. Hebrews 9:28. So could it be that it will not be so difficult to unite these religions under 1… Just a thought…
    I do also think that we’ll be united as Curt said for 1 Currency and Government lead by the Antichrist…

  39. the devil has a plan and so does God and the devil will try to counterfeit the real one. (i can tell this issue is a tangled one). i do not understand mixing a salvation issue here though with what is to happen with the jews to finish out the transgression and then (those chosen among them) come to faith in Jesus and live out their own covenant with the Lord in the land (with those expanded borders He promised them) as the other nations look on. i think the confusion of that issue is not allowing for the literal and the spiritual to be seen fully. in another comment i mentioned that all the religions-apostate christian and non-christian alike-will try to come together in the whole issue of temple mount for a compromise that will make the deceived believe they are doing what will “work” for “peace and security” for the whole utopian delusion. will it involve the temple mount/temple? yes. and those bent on having it in their time their way? yes. but they won’t get it done as they think. Gods plan will come to together for those future covenant promise fulfillments when the devils (and his man ac) “short time” gets used up.

  41. Is 66
    1 Thus saith the LORD, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest?
    2 For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.
    3 He that killeth an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sacrificeth a lamb, as if he cut off a dog’s neck; he that offereth an oblation, as if he offered swine’s blood; he that burneth incense, as if he blessed an idol. Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations.

    The land promises will be fulfilled for Faithfull Israel….but Only to Faithful Israel (Jew and Gentile Alike).

    The Spiritual meaning of scripture is the Primary Meaning, and the Literal/Physical meaning is Subservient to the Primary.

    So, we must all wait and see what remains of the Physical parts……..while the Spiritual parts have been made very evident in Christ.

  42. Yes tribber. Salvation from His Cross is done. Praise the Name of Jesus Christ the Lord. ๐Ÿ™‚ but the old covenants with the land and His people the jews are still in play-need a completion. a separate issue. we are His bride. israel is His wife that has been divorced from Him but has a restoration coming and it involves those things i brought up-temple mount-the temple-the land-the role of israel in the world when every people will follow a jew to jerusalem to see The King. the jews were supposed to lead the world to the King (Jesus) and failed to do it because they failed to see the suffering servant (of isaiah 53) was really their Lord and Master–Messiah!—but God had a plan–the church!!! to show that Truth of the Gospel-the finished work of Christ to the world in israel’s failure to receive Him and declare Him…….but they will have the opportunity to finish the call with those generations after the tribulation time and the ac is done doing that horrific business (finish the transgression),. i hope i am making this clear–i’m trying ๐Ÿ˜‰

  43. “i hope i am making this clearโ€“iโ€™m trying ”

    I understand your meaning completely, but you’ve not yet understood what I’m trying to say.
    That is the case when the prevailing opinion that the Church and Israel are divided and each have separate promises from God.
    But there is no Division of God’s People………from Able till the last Faithful Child of God is Graft into His One and Only People.

    The Church/Congregation of God didn’t begin at Pentecost or at the First preaching of the Gospel by Christ or at the preaching of John.

    So much is misunderstood about God’s People, and that’s where all the literal and spiritual fulfillment ping ponging comes from.

    God will Open all of our eyes fully very soon I think………And then, Wow, God’s People will Know as We are known, and every enemy of God will be in One Big Hurtlocker Together!

  44. actually tribber we are in the main pretty much saying the same thing. i believe the jews have a distinct role to fill as His chosen people in earthly promises but it all rolls in to one for israel and the church in it’s conclusion. Heaven is our destination! the middle wall of partition has been brought down by Jesus the LORD ๐Ÿ™‚ HE said so…so…so it is! God’s plan is truly coming together and that puts all Who love and adore Him–worship Him only—–on the same page. some are still coming in—some will come in through the tribulation time–they are few in number compared to the world’s billions–but God knows them already and one day so shall we. i do not worry about what i do not know and i do not worry about being deceived because i stay in the Word–it is hidden in my heart that i might not sin against Him–the Truth exposes the lies of the enemy and the Spirit of God reveals more and more to us who are waiting and watching for Jesus….and He even said I have told you beforehand so things are coming to light as all of this unfolds…so i am asking by faith-seeking by faith-His wisdom. faith is the only thing that pleases Him-i sure cannot earn it or muster it–but just simply knowing in my heart—-trusting in the One Whose Loving-kindness is better than life—–greater is HE that is in me than he that is in the world. ๐Ÿ™‚ am glad for everyone’s participation too.

  46. i have heard about a teaching about the days of creation and the milleniums (1000 years) and the types and foreshadows in it.
    ***day 1-light separated from darkness…in the 1st 1000 man’s sin separated him from God
    ***day 2-separation of the waters above and below….in the 2nd 1000 waters from above and below the earth used in judgment
    ***day 3-plants yielding their seed….in the 3rd 1000 promise given to abraham that thru his seed would come Messiah blessing all the nations of the earth
    ***day 4-lights in heaven created…in the 4th 1000 kings and prophets were given as lights to israel and Jesus the Christ had come as the Light of the world
    ***day 5-living creatures were created…in the 5th 1000 Jesus had died and rose and brought eternal life by faith in His atoning sacrifice and the church was born (born again eternally alive!)
    ***day 6-man was told to fill the earth and subdue it…in the 6th 1000 now 7 billion souls 7# of completion and man has even gone into the frontier of outer space-the earth is filled with men running to and fro doing evil continually and the earth now groans loudly for what is next!
    ***day 7-God rested…in the 7th 1000 the earth will see restoration, man will see the lion lay down (at rest) with the lamb when the King of Righteousness is here–rest from constant war and even a child can put it’s hand in a vipers pit safely. the Prince of Peace will bring that peace and rest.

    and then with all that said and done…………….God will create a new heaven and a new earth!

    Jesus was here 2000 years ago. He is coming again and we know it won’t be long!!!

    the 6000th year finishing and the 7th about to commence ๐Ÿ™‚ the transgression is about to complete-the devil has a short time coming up on the horizon–we can feel it! and then The KING will set foot on the earth! hallelujah! /

  48. I agree with you Hisown, But i know the Sanhedrin want to rebuild a temple and so do Some imams (Islam).
    Sanhedrin who just read the Torah don’t believe Jesus was the messiah so they think they need to please God via sacrifice. Where we know Jesus sacrificed himself for us so there is no need to sacrifice animals anymore. The Sanhedrin were the ones who had Jesus killed
    As i said it seems that they want it rebuilt, so if they did build one then its not from God.

    This is what they say: โ€œThe point is that we canโ€™t live without the Temple,โ€ Richman says. โ€œItโ€™s not about building, itโ€™s about a concept: the idea that all of human experience can be elevated to a sense of divine purpose.โ€
