The Two Phases of The Antichrist: Man of Sin and Son of Destruction
Give no belief to false words: because there will first be a falling away from the faith, and the revelation of the man of sin (266 ἁμαρτία hamartia), the son of destruction (684 ἀπώλεια apoleia), (2 Thess. 2:3 BBE)
“Man of sin” (458 ἀνομία anomia). The Genitive construction describes him as “of sin”, sin characterizes him. As “sin is lawlessness” (1 Jn. 3:4), his “lying signs and wonders” (2 Th. 2:9) “teach the lie lawlessness has divine approval”, that God’s Word the Bible no longer applies (2 Th. 2:10).
The Holy Spirit likely chose the title “son of destruction” to allude to Judas a “son of the evil one” (BBE διάβολός ἐστιν Jn. 6:70; 17:12). Confirming this, Satan is called “Destruction” and “Apollyon” in Revelation 9:11. Like Judas he will be a miracle working Jewish Christian the apostate church receives as “The Christ (Mt. 24:4-5, 23-25).”
At mid-week the “man of sin false Christ” morphs into “the son of destruction” “seed of Satan” (Gen. 3:15), revealing he is a hybrid Elohim-human created by the Nephilim (Gen. 6:1-4) “extraterrestrial Designers”. His Pompous Mouth (Dan. 7:8, 20; Rev. 13:5) boastfully claims his hybrid nature is superior to all Elohim, all formerly called God but who actually were extraterrestrials. In this way he denies the Deity of Father and the Son (1 John 2:18-23), opposing all called God in history while exalting himself above them all.
who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. (2 Thess. 2:4 NKJ)
The prophet Daniel also revealed the Desolator (Antichrist) comes in two phases, first as a friend to the world’s religions, but at mid-week he forbids their sacrifices and offerings to God:
And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week; and for half of the week he shall cause sacrifice and offering to cease; and upon the wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate, until the decreed end is poured out on the desolator.” (Dan. 9:27 RSV)
John’s Revelation also reveals the two phases False Christ/Antichrist when the End Time Beast with a “lion’s mouth” (Rev. 13:2) gets a new “mouth speaking great things and blasphemies” for the remaining 42 months (Rev. 13:5; Dan. 7:8, 20, 25; 11:36).
1 Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name.
2 Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority.
5 And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months. (Rev. 13:1-5 NKJ)
antichristos (ἀντίχριστος, 500) can mean either “against Christ” or “instead of Christ,” or perhaps, combining the two, “one who, assuming the guise of Christ, opposes Christ”-Vine, W. E., Unger, M. F., White, W., Jr. (1996). In Vine’s Complete Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words (Vol. 2, p. 30). T. Nelson.
So the Antichrist has two phases. For 3.5 years he is the “Man of Sin” “false Christ” speaking through a mouth “like a lion” (2Th. 2:3. Rev. 13:2), then he opposes the historic definitions of God speaking blasphemies (Rev. 13:5) pompously exalting himself above them all as the “Son of Destruction” (2Th. 2:3-4) “Seed of Satan” (Gen. 3:15) “Antichrist” denying the Father and the Son (1Jo. 2:18, 22).
3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away (646 ἀποστασία apostasia) comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition,
4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. (2 Thess. 2:3-4 NKJ)
The great apostasy from God begins in the Christian church when it receives the “Man of Sin” as “the Christ”. That apostasy “takes away” (05493 סוּר cuwr, Dan. 12:11) the Daily offered to God in Christ, the sacrifice for our sins. The religious apostasy goes global as the Man of Sin morphs into the Beast Son of Destruction. Then everything called God or formerly worshipped as God, is replaced by worship of Adonikam who claims his hybrid human-Elohim nature is superior to all Elohim, regardless what God is called on the earth. That is when he ends all sacrifice to God globally (Dan. 9:27), at “mid-week” or 3 ½ years into his seven year reign.
John saw the seven head ten-horn Grecian Roman Empire “Beast” rise from the sea in the end time “week of years” (Rev. 13:1-8). The entire Beast symbolizes both the “Kingdom” and the “King”, notice the personal pronoun “he” from Revelation 13:5 on. This also happens in the book of Daniel where the same ten-horn version of the Roman Empire appears in the end time (Dan. 7:17, 23).
For the first 3.5 years the mouth of the beast is “like a lion”. In Revelation 5:5 Jesus Christ is called the “lion of the tribe of Judah”. Therefore, as the “lion’s mouth” is on the Beast it is a “false Christ” that speaks through it.
The “Man of Sin” is a miracle working Jewish Christian named Adonikam, who appears in the end time in the region of ancient Antioch.  He will work miracles and do signs and wonders that seem to authenticate his claim to be “the Christ”. But they lie (2Th. 2:7-12). He is called the “man of sin” because he condones sin for the sake of ecumenical unity. The already fallen away Christian church loves his Gospel of health and wealth and hail him as “the Christ” (2 Th. 2:3-4).
Sometime earlier God had stopped restraining the mystery of lawlessness, spiritism (2Th. 2:7-12) and there was a war in heaven. Satan and his angels were cast out and they appeared on earth (Rev. 12:7-12) claiming to be “the Elohim Creators” of life on earth. They lyingly pointed to the fossil record claiming it proved they designed life on planet earth. Now they had returned to ascend mankind to the next level, and gift it with immortality. The human race would become like the Elohim, and travel the universe also creating life on other planets as participants in the cycle of life. They demanded a NWO be created, and the seven head ten-horn Grecian Roman Empire was born.
The Man of Sin welcomed the arrival of the “Elohim”. He adopted their “scientific Atheism” and welcomed their arrival as the coming of the Kingdom of God. The Elohim therefore made Adonikam Chancellor of the New World Order. 
Ancient Babylon was rebuilt using fallen angel technology and supernatural character of the city so impressed those who dwell on the earth, they believed the Grecian Roman Empire invincible:
3 One of its heads seemed to have a mortal wound [buried beneath desert sand], but its mortal wound was healed [Babylon rebuilt], and the whole earth marveled [at its supernatural character] as they followed the beast [Chancellor Adonikam].
4 And they worshiped the dragon [commander of the “ETs”], for he had given his authority to the beast [Adonikam], and they worshiped the beast [the concept of the NWO], saying, “Who is like the beast [NWO], and who can fight against it?” (Rev. 13:3-4 ESV)
As the rider on a white horse, “Chancellor” Adonikam the false Christ didn’t use any arrows to conquer the earth, globalist ecstasy swept the planet:
And I looked, and behold, a white horse. He [Adonikam] who sat on it had a bow; and a crown [Chancellorship] was given to him [by Satan], and he went out conquering and to conquer (Rev. 6:2 NKJ)
At mid-week the lion’s mouth stops talking, the Grecian Roman Empire is given a new Antichrist mouth that speaks “great things and blasphemies.” (Rev. 13:5. 1Jo. 2:18-22) He morphs into the “Son of Perdition” “opposing” all earthly definitions of God, and “exalting” himself above them all. His hybrid Elohim-human nature is claimed to be above the Extraterrestrial Elohim themselves. He proudly claims to be the “seed of Satan” (Gen. 3:15), claiming he is the source of the Elohim DNA in his genome (2Th. 2:3-4).
For five months before mid-week evil spirits tormented and terrorized the TARES in Christendom to convert to scientific atheism, to be loyal to Adonikam when he proclaims himself the “seed of Satan” “Son of Perdition” (2Th. 2:3-4). But Satan so hates God, anyone alive remotely connected to Christianity, even the apostates that converted to the Beast and accepted his Mark, were slain by the demonic Kings of the East and their demon Calvary (Rev. 9:13-19). The third of the earth’s population that once claimed to be Christian was slain.
Then the Beast Emperor Adonikam turns his attention to those all who refuse his mark. The Great Tribulation for the Church begins and most die a martyrs death (Rev. 13:5-7).
Now you know the two phases of Antichrist.

That the “Lawless One” will be a miracle “lying” sign and wonder worker filled with the energy of Satan to deceive is explicit in 2 Thessalonians 2:7-9.
I infer from Daniel 11:37-18 “God of his fathers” he is Jew. I infer from “son of perdition” (2 Th. 2:2-3. John 17:12) he is a Christian Jew like Judas.
I infer from Micah 5:5 (Isa. 14:25-27) he is “the Assyrian” which connects him to Nimrod founder of “Old Babylon” where the Harlot was born.
I infer from Scripture’s powerful allusion to the Greek Syrian Antiochus Epiphanes (Dan. 8:8-17; 11:31) who failed to fulfill all the parameters of the Antichrist—as it is expressly said the prophecy pertains “to the time of the end”, that much true concerning Antiochus and his dwelling in Antioch, is predictive about the coming “King of the North” (Dan. 11:40-43) 666 Adonikam Jewish Christian Assyrian. Of the tribe of Dan (Gen. 49:17)
This is not an exhaustive list, there are other texts consistent with these inferences, I at the moment can’t recall them precisely.
I am not a prophet, none of this is prophecy in the classic sense. Its inference only and as such any part or all of it except what is required by sound exegesis, can be wrong.
16 Bind up the testimony, Seal the law among my disciples.
17 And I will wait on the LORD, Who hides His face from the house of Jacob; And I will hope in Him.
18 Here am I and the children whom the LORD has given me! We are for signs and wonders in Israel From the LORD of hosts, Who dwells in Mount Zion.
19 And when they say to you, “Seek those who are mediums and wizards, who whisper and mutter,” should not a people seek their God? Should they seek the dead on behalf of the living?
20 To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because there is no light in them. (Isa. 8:16-20 NKJ)
Again, this is not prophecy, its abductive logic, inference. Scripture depicts the Devil as intelligent and strategic. Recent events prove there is something to the reports of UFO’s. Persons of impeccable character and specifically trained to observe and report what they see (astronauts, military pilots etc) saw and experienced UFOs. Added to this is the massive delusion reshaping the public perception of reality to accept “ancient astronaut theory”. Therefore, as UFO spectacle and massive indoctrination exist, its clear something or someone is causing it to exist. It is certainly affecting the church causing many to fall away (2 Thess. 2:3-4).
It would be strategic genius to convince mankind extraterrestrial (Designers) have created mankind, all life on planet earth. It would appropriate creationist intelligent design arguments, efficiently incorporating the facts of the fossil record and all known physics to destroy the mass delusion of evolution. There is only one being who would benefit from such events. Satan. Its ironic, only after YHWH God is removed as the Intelligent Designer, will “intelligent design” arguments convince mankind.
Its reasonable to infer the UFO deception being preached today is part of the Satan’s strong delusion to convince mankind join the Great Revolt against all called God or worshiped (2 Th. 2:3-4). If we take scripture literally, when the Devil and his fallen angels are cast out of heaven it is truly WOE to the earth. It follows they appear physically on earth and in our skies (Rev. 12:7-12), perhaps as they did in the Days of Noah (Gen. 6:1-4).
Although I have not surveyed all the UFO cults existing today, its seems very likely what Satan taught a former automobile journalist and race car driver Claude Vorilhon (now Rael) will be basic deception he uses in the end time. “Scientific Atheism” is abductively the likely gist of the strong delusion Satan will use to convince the earth to fight God at Armageddon (Rev. 16:13-14). “Flying frogs” are symbolic of UFOs, out of the mouths of the evil trinity, the “inspired” “BIG LIE” YHWH God can be defeated by men and fallen angel. Just as happened in Nimrod’s revolt at the Tower of Babel. Or before that, when men conspired with the Nephilim to seduce the angelic sons of God into apostasy. This Demonic-Human rebellion against God has happened before, it will happen again (Rev. 20:7-10).
Again, I am NOT a prophet. The LORD has not spoken to me. I am inferring what will be, assembling pieces of the puzzle that is before us, to arrive at a picture consistent with Bible revelation. Its inference. Not prophecy. It certainly is a leap over vast chasms of the unknown. It seems elegant to me, parsimonous to the facts available. Only time will tell if I assembled the pieces correctly.
If assembled correctly perspicuity of scripture and sola scriptura alone account for it. If not, the blame is mine alone. Scripture is always 100% correct.
May the generation alive suffering the Great Tribulation keep looking up for Jesus their Redeemer, He is surely near. Maranatha! Amen and Amen, Come LORD Jesus!
The Daily Sacrifice today is offered up by the priesthood of the Church. That is consistent with the NT applying Temple language to the church (1 Cor. 3:16-17; 6:19; 2 Cor. 6:16; Eph. 2:19-21). Peter identifies the church as a spiritual house “a holy priesthood, to offer up “spiritual sacrifices” (πνευματικὰς θυσίας) acceptable to God” (1 Pet. 2:5). In Hebrews we are admonished to “offer (399 ἀναφέρω anaphero) sacrifice (2378 θυσία thusia)” and that word is used in the Greek Septuagint to offer (399 ἀναφέρω anaphero) the whole burnt offering that in Hebrew is the “daily” (08548 תָּמִיד tamiyd) 1 Ch. 16:40; 23:31; 2 Ch. 2:3; 24:14.
Our sacrifice of praise is to be offered “continually” (1275 διαπαντός) to God. In Hebrews 13:1-17 the ethical exhortations being an expansion of the acceptable duties priests offer God daily (Heb. 12:28 λατρεύωμεν εὐαρέστως τῷ θεῷ).
Christ is our perpetual sacrifice for sin (Heb. 10:11-18), it follows “that the daily sacrifice “shall be taken away” (05493 סוּר cuwr; 868 ἀφίστημι) is taken away by the church’s apostasy when it receives the false Christ man of sin, which occurs at the commencement of the seven years.
Not taking up the cross daily for Christ, doing service to the false Christ, is the apostasy that removes the daily sacrifice of praise and offerings to God and that marks the beginning of the end time week as does the arrival of Moses and Elijah to prophesy in Jerusalem (Rev. 11:3-7)
