The Scriptures give us a portrait of the false Messiah and reveals to us that he will imitate the true Messiah in at least 6 ways:
1. He will come to the Jews with overtures of peace (Dan. 9:27).
2. He will come portraying a great king (Rev. 6:2).
3. He will come to the Temple in Jerusalem (Dan. 9:27 & II Thess. 2:4).
4. He will perform many great signs and wonders (II Thess. 2:9).
5. He will have a forerunner much like Elijah who is prophesied to come before the true Lord (Mal. 4:5 & Rev. 13:11-13).
6. He will even imitate the resurrection of Jesus Christ (Rev. 13:3 & 12).
Zechariah 14:2-5 “For I (JESUS) will gather all (including the USA) the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city will be captured, the houses plundered, the women ravished and half of the city exiled, but the rest of the people will not be cut off from the city. 3 Then the LORD (JESUS) will go forth and fight against those nations, as when He fights on a day of battle. 4 In that day His feet (JESUS) will stand on the Mount of Olives, which is in front of Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of Olives will be split in its middle from east to west by a very large valley, so that half of the mountain will move toward the north and the other half toward the south. 5 You (1/3 of the Nation of Israel) will flee by the valley of My mountains, for the valley of the mountains will reach to Azel; yes, you will flee just as you fled before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Then the LORD (JESUS), my God, will come, and all the holy ones (Born Again Christians throughout time) with Him!
