How long will the Antichrist reign?
Rev 13:4 So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?”
Rev 13:5 And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and HE WAS GIVEN AUTHORITY TO CONTINUE FOR FORTY-TWO MONTHS
42 months = 3.5 years!
Some will try to tell you the beast will only be here for 5 months… that is a LIE!
They will tell you God shortened the days… so let’s look at that:
Mar 13:20 And unless the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake, whom He chose, He shortened the days.
The word translated “days” is the Greek hemera, which literally means: the time space between dawn and dark, or the whole 24 hours
It does NOT mean the 3.5 years was shortened to a 5 month period!
