Statue of the Anti-Christ

"He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed." (Revelation 13:13-15 - New King James Version)

The False Prophet will have the ability to do miracles. He will even be able to call down fire out of the sky. People will be awe struck by his deeds. The world will be convinced that he is a man of God. They will be ready to believe whatever he tells them in regard to religion.

He will tell the world that they should worship the Anti-Christ. He will have a statue made of the Anti-Christ. This statue is the abomination of desolation. It will be placed in the new Jewish temple in Jerusalem.

The False Prophet's miracles will include the supernatural animation of the statue of the beast. Through the powers of darkness, the False Prophet will cause the image to speak.

The image will declare that all who do not worship the Anti-Christ should be killed. Of course, those who are not willing to go along with the policies of the Anti-Christ and the False Prophet will be considered traitors against humanity. The words of the image will just be further encouragement to seek out and destroy true Christians, those Jews who reject the message of the False Prophet, and any others who are not willing to go along with their plans.
