4 what is man that you are mindful of him,
and the son of man that you care for him?
Andrews will answer the following questions and far more. How does the Bible explain and describe the creation of man and woman? Why is it imperative that we understand our fallen condition? What does it mean to be made in the image of God? What are the original language words for “man” in Hebrew and Greek? What do they mean? Why Do We Grow Old and Die?
What Scriptural evidence is there that imperfect humans are mentally bent toward evil? How can we control our mental bent toward evil? What is the ongoing conflict within us? What are the moral law and sin’s law? How do we take off the old person and put on the new person?
How does this completely new man come about? How do we “learn Christ”? Why is it important that we put away the old person definitively? What is the force that sets our mind into motion, and how is it made new? What was Adam given that imperfect humans still have, which needs to be cultivated?
How do we correctly understand our freedom as it relates to God's foreknowledge? Does foreknowledge equal foreordination? Does foreknowledge determine the free decision, or do free decisions determine the foreknowledge? Does the event happen because God foreknows it, or because God foreknows the event it will happen?

Let us offer an analogy to make the above point, even more, impactful. What would we do if a deadly outbreak of a disease that is spreading more quickly and more extensively among the people than would normally be expected and it is raging in our country, especially within our city, right in our community? Would we not look for a way to build up our immune system? Would we not also want to avoid anyone carrying the disease? The same holds true of the antichrist and the man of lawlessness, who not only have the ability to take our physical life but also our eternal life. Therefore, in a Scriptural sense, we would want to build ourselves up spiritually and avoid anyone who is affected by these evil ones, not to mention the antichrist and the man of lawlessness themselves. The Scriptures tell us “the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is in the world already.” (1 John 4:3) Still staying with the analogy, if we want to avoid being infected, we have to identify the antichrist/man of lawlessness and the carriers of the disease.
This publication will accomplish just that and do so Scripturally. Nothing herein will be based on an opinion; it will all be God’s Word. The first four chapters will cover the Antichrist. Chapters 5-6 will deal with the Man of Lawlessness. The apostle Paul tells us “Then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will do away with …” [2 Thessalonians 2:8] In addition, Chapter 7 will identify the Mark of the Beast from the book of Revelation.
In chapter 1 we will take their chronology from the back of their 1984 New World Translation Reference Bible. We will take the points one-by-one, seeing whether the Watchtower get things right, and where the interpretation breaks down.
In chapter 2 we will take the time to talk about this craze of Christianity, which also has been overly focusing on such terms as the "end times" or "the last days." While none of us can know the precise time of Jesus' return, how should we view the time that is remaining?
