The Sinless Man died a mortal, violent death by Crucifixion. (Mt 27:50 Mk 15:37; Lk 21:46; John 19:30)
The Man of Sin will die a mortal, violent death by a stab wound through his right eye and an arm, just prior to the Great Tribulation. (Zechariah 11:17; Revelation 13:3; 17:8)

Jesus Christ was laid in a new tomb. (Mt 27:60; Mk 15:46; Lk 23:53; John 19: 41-42)
His Spirit descended into Paradise, because He promised the Repentant Thief on the Cross that he would be there with Him that same day when they both would die. (Luke 23:43)
No mention about the Antichrist receiving burial.
The soul of the Antichrist will descend into the Abyss, not the Place of Torment and not the now empty Paradise. (Revelation 17:8)


Jesus Christ rose from the dead in Resurrection. This means that He is immortal and will live forever in a tangible Glorified Body.
(Mt 28:1-10; Mk 16:1-14; Luke 24:1-46; John 20:1-31)
Only Jesus Christ Is The Resurrection. (John 11:25)
Only He has the power to resurrect the dead to Everlasting Life or Everlasting Death.
(1 Thess 4:14-18; 1 Cor 15:51-54; Dan 12:2; Isaiah 26:19; Revelation 19:20; 20:4)

Antichrist will ascend out of the Abyss when he is raised to mortal life by the black magic of Satan at the beginning of the Great Tribulation. (Revelation 13:4; 17:8)
He will be perceived by people to be immortal, because no mortal man will be able to kill him. He will be invincible. (Rev 13:4, 7)
*** There is a difference here, because the Antichrist will return to life in the mortal state. He will not be resurrected to Everlasting Life, ever.
The Lord demonstrated this power more than once during His First Advent. The most famous is the raising of Lazarus. (John 11:38-45)
He gave this same power to raise the dead to mortal life to these following Old Testament prophets and Apostles:

Elijah (1 Kings 17:17-24)
Elisha (2 Kings 4:18-37)
Peter (Acts 9:36-43)
Paul (Acts 20:7-12)

The Lord also gave certain supernatural fire powers to both Elijah and Satan, and will give them to the Two Witnesses and the False Prophet during the Tribulation.
(2 Kings 1:10-15; Job 1:12, 16; Revelation 11:5; 13:13)
Therefore, it stands to reason that He will allow Satan to raise the Antichrist to mortal life for the purpose of fulfilling all prophecy.


The above mentioned is how I think people will be deceived into worship of the Antichrist.
Those people will hear the Gospel, but they will not be willing to listen. And they will confuse Resurrection to Immortality with raising the dead to mortal life.

Here is how it will all play out for the end of the Antichrist:

Just as those like Lazarus who were raised to mortal life died another mortal death later, so will the Antichrist die again when Jesus Christ will slay him with the breath of His Mouth when He Returns at the end of the Tribulation. (2 Thess 2:8)

He will not be buried, and the survivors will be astonished as they stare at his dead body. (Isaiah 14:16-20)

This time, his soul descends into the Place of Torment, because those lost souls who preceeded him are shocked to see that he is as weak as they are. (Isaiah 14:9-11)

Because he wanted to imitate Jesus Christ, the First Fruits of the Resurrection...now Jesus Christ will resurrect the Antichrist as the First Fruits of the Resurrected Damned. His tangible unglorified body will be cast into the Lake of Fire, along with the False Prophet, and they will burn an extra one thousand years before the rest of the lost human souls, Satan, and the fallen angels. will.
(Revelation 19:20)

It won't be just the AC who does things like this...for the first 3 1/2 years we will likely see satanic counterfeit signs and wonders coming out of the false prophet/false church.
All the unsaved world will be drawn helplessly in.

Just to add - satan will be released at the end of the MK (Revelation 20) and will once again try and defeat God, but we know the dark one loses, and is castaway to the lake of fire, never to be seen again.

Yes. Although Satan possesses the Antichrist right up to the point when Jesus Christ kills the AC, their post Tribulation destinations are different.

Isaiah 14:9-11 and Revelation 19:20 tell us that the AC goes directly to Hell after his mortal death by Jesus Christ. Then he is resurrected in immortal death and thrown into the Lake of Fire.

Isaiah 14:12-15 and Revelation 20:1-3 both describe Satan being cast into the pit/bottomless pit which is also the Abyss for the one thousand years while the AC and FP will be in the Lake of Fire.

According to some verses in Isaiah, black magic will be practiced throughout the Tribulation and especially the Great Tribulation.
When God destroys economic Mystery Babylon, black magic will be practiced in an effort to save the city. But they will burn with the city.
IMO, I think the False Prophet will be among them before he is thrown into the Lake of Fire. And also because Mystery Babylon will receive a double portion of the Wrath of God.

Black Magic is very powerful.
Pharoah's magicians used when they conjured up the snakes that were eaten by Aaron's rod-turned-snake.
Also, their is a passage about Israel at war with Moab. Moab was losing, and Israel had done something against God's Will. Anyway, God removed His hedge of protection, the king of Moab sacrificed his son to a demon as a burnt offering on the wall of the city, and Moab defeated Israel in that battle.

It's real supernatural power, but thankfully not as powerful as God Almighty. But it is very dangerous to those who practice it, because God will allow them to suffer the consequences.

I love comparisons like this because satan always tries to copy God. It just always works out exactly the opposite (evil instead of good). The reason I love the comparison is because it really shows how jealous satan is and that he won't stop at anything, even still being cocky enough to think he can change the ending of the Bible.

In addition to the use of occult and witchcraft I would also factor in technology and transhumanism. I do not think it is coincidence that there is a spiritual/occultic element to the way scientists describe quantum computing, 5G, CERN, pharma, the internet of things, nuralink, augmented reality, etc... The enemy tries to imitate God, however he is not omniscient, omnipresent, or omnipotent. The cloud connects a lot of information. There is a reason that it is pushed as a "convenience". There is a reason that psychologists work with developers to make apps addictive through the release of dopamine. I think it is probable that the enemy will use both esoteric and ubiquitous technologies (and the world's dependence on them), along with the occult, to imitate the attributes of God.
