The Book of Revelation Chapter Thirteen.  

Chapter thirteen provides the depiction of the two beast... one from the sea and one from the earth, both symbolizing the Antichrist and his false prophet.  The sea depicts the Gentile nations of the world from which the beast will rise and will be known as the Antichrist... the false messiah. 

The second beast will be the False Prophet who will manipulate the populace to worship the first beast.  He will have to deceive the people by virtue of a clever means that will lead to willful submission that will require taking the Mark Of The Beast.

While you and I live in a time of the spirit of antichrist, and many false prophets;  the Tribulation saints will know specifically who both individuals are. Their solid defense against the False Prophet and the Antichrist will be the Word of God. They will be sound in the fundamental doctrines of the Bible. Even today, Christians are only at their best when they rely upon sound Bible doctrine
