The image of the beast and the Papal antichrist.

The image of the beast, to me could be seen as both literal and symbolical. Literal in the sense that it will be a sacrilegious object that will be made to stand in the holy temple. The image may be a computerised machine that has been made and programmed to kill those who will not serve the antichrist. In its symbolic sense, it may be the Roman Catholic Church which has been given a breath of life by the lamb-like beast (Religious Rome) with the two horns (The Papacy and the Vatican). Are we to expect a Papal Antichrist or an E.U antichrist or half Papal and half E.U antichrist? I need your views please.

2 Thess 2  warns us of the antichrist deceiving the world with great signs and wonders

Revelation 13 warns of the beast and the false prophet deceiving the world with great signs and wonders

Jesus warns of false Jewish leaders and false prophets deceiving the world with great signs and wonders:

 

  Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

 

Is a false "Christ" a false Jewish leader?  A Christ was an expected Jewish leader coming to free the Jews, so surely a false Christ would be a false Jewish leader pretending to free the Jews? What do you think?

Well the false Christ spoken of may be a counterfeit Christ from a gentile nation.

That could be true, but then he would have to appear Jewish if he is to be a false Christ.

That wouldn't be too difficult. To be honest with you what does a Jew really look like?

That's true, he could be just claiming to be a Jew.
