But archaeologists have uncovered a document from the Judean desert that spells the name precisely this way. Another objection comes from those who say Revelation was written in Greek—not Hebrew.
Another danger is to fixate on this text apart from its context in the rest of Revelation. Thus, some who rightly warn of end-time deception unfortunately issue a blanket condemnation of all signs and wonders. But this is an inconsistent application of the text. Signs by themselves can be positive or negative; what enables us to discern true prophets from false ones is not to discard prophets altogether, but to evaluate them by their moral character.
The point is that we know them by their message and their fruit, not by their gifts Deut. Additionally, some have associated restraint from buying and selling with a sophisticated banking system. In fact, a mid-third-century emperor demanded certificates of sacrifice to the emperor to participate in commerce and escape prosecution; he likely sought to eradicate Christians. Many Christians compromised by bribing officials or by using other practices; some preferred death and were accordingly executed.

Prophecy teachers have forced many names to come to Some sixteenth-century interpreters came up with either the Pope or Martin Luther, depending on which side of the Reformation debate they stood on.
And why not? They may have been wrong that Christ would return in their generation, but each generation had a right to expect him. From the standpoint of their own experience of martyrdom, many Christians have been engaged in their own final struggle with the forces of Antichrist see Luke ; 1 John When Stalin, for instance, murdered ten to thirty million people in seventeen years, we would have undoubtedly thought him the final Antichrist had we lived in the Ukraine—and we could have been right, God willing.
In a future holocaust we will probably think its perpetrator the final Antichrist—and we may be right. But if history surprises us once more, we will be reminded of how the mystery of lawlessness continues its hideous incarnations until the end.
1. Who is this beast who requires a mark?
Additionally, Satan does not know when Jesus will return Mark and must always have an antichrist in waiting.
