The false prophet

Following the emergence of the Beast of the Sea, the apostle John introduces the Beast from the Earth (Rev 13:11).

This man has the authority to make the whole earth worship the Antichrist (Rev 13:12).

With the intent to deceive, he performs miracles to encourage the worship of the Antichrist including the making of Antichrist idols (Rev 13:14-15).

Anyone who does not worship the Antichrist or his image is killed (Rev 13:15).

In order to participate in any aspect of the economy, everyone in the whole world must have the mark of the Antichrist or his number 666 on their right hand or forehead (Rev 13:16-18).

The association of the Beast from the Earth to the False Prophet occurs later in the apostle John's account of Armageddon, and his title aptly describes the role and relationship he had with the Antichrist (Rev 16:13; 19:20; 20:10).
