Counterfeit Resurrection

Q. My husband was watching an end-times TV show where the commentator said the anti-Christ will be killed and then resurrect himself during the Tribulation. The idea will be he can show himself to have great power and win the masses to his side. I have never heard of the anti-Christ dying during the Tribulation, have you? Is this Biblical?

A. Speaking of the anti-Christ, Revelation 13:3 says “One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed. The whole world was astonished and followed the beast.” This leads many commentators to speculate that he will stage a death and resurrection to help consolidate his power. Most believe it will be a counterfeit event, but it will fool the post-church world nonetheless.
