Pagan festivals and gods were assigned different names and incorporated into the Catholic Church. Easter is an example. Nowhere in the Bible does it teach that Christians should keep Easter. The Easter egg is not found in the Bible. It comes from pagan festivals. The Encyclopedia Britannica (1991) mentioned that: “...folk customs have collected, many of which have been handed down from the ancient ceremonial…symbolism of European and Middle Eastern pagan spring festivals…for example, eggs…have been very prominent as symbols of new life and resurrection”[.]

This short article will look at the nature of the Antichrist and that he is not a human being, but he looks human. We will also look at how Apollyon will possess the Antichrist's body. We will see how the time of great tribulation, including the time in which many will be killed for not receiving the mark of the beast, is approximately three and a half years. We will also expound Revelation 17:8-13 and the seven mountains. Click here to read it.
