    The book of Revelation predicts that before Jesus’ return a world dictator known as the Antichrist will rise to power and rule for seven years.

    The term "Rapture" is not found in English-language Bibles, but made its way into Christian terminology as a transliteration of rapiemur (from rapio, or raptio), the Latin word used by Saint Jerome in his Latin Vulgate translation of 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, which describes how the saved from all ages, both dead and living, will be "caught up" to meet Jesus in the air at His Second Coming.

    Jesus indicated that pervasive violence would be prevalent prior to His return: “As the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be” (Matthew 24:37). The book of Genesis tells us that in the days of Noah “the earth was corrupt before God, and was filled with violence”

    From time to time, this column on Endtime events revisits the subject of the “image of the Beast.” Recently I was looking at a photo of a gold-plated colossus of a recently deceased dictator, and it got me thinking. It seems dictators really like having giant statues of themselves erected, and it looks like the worst tyrant the world will ever know is going to follow in the tradition of his predecessors.
