While most TARES in the fallen away Church will gladly follow the Man of Sin as he morphs into the Antichrist Beast Son of Destruction (2 Th. 2:3-4; Mt. 7:21-22), those clinging to the externals of their former religion will be tortured until they acknowledge Adonikam the Beast as God and worship his image (Rev. 9:1-6). By midweek nothing stands in the way of the revelation of the man of Lawlessness (2 Th. 2:7-12). But it won’t save them, after they convert they will be slain with the third of humanity that once called itself Christian (Rev. 9:13-21).
Even though the Beast’s followers saws this, indeed gladly participated in the slaughter of the third of humanity that once called itself Christian (Rev. 18:6-7), they surprisingly were unconcerned the same fate could befall them:
20 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:
21 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts. (Rev 9:20-21)
