The Antichrists Empire is expected to be from the Middle East to possibly the UK in the west and South to Egypt, Libya, North to Turkey and Armenia at least.
Do you think that when the mark of the beast is implemented in his territory that other nations around the world will also implement it. Are there any scriptures which give us a clue?
The reason I ask this is, we know the Bowl judgements are going to be poured out on those that take the mark of the beast.
So when it comes to preparing the flock and ministering to people we can prepare them for what could happen and why they should not take the mark. I hope it is so obvious. I can see that many could be deceived into taken a mark without realising what they have done until it is too late. We have had an example with Vaccine Passports in the UK and Europe and I was amazed at how many Christians had all the jabs and were willing and support vaccine passports, wore masks and trusted the government. They used our NHS app on their phones so they could be traced and used QR codes like sheep.

What I can say for sure is that the 10 kings will give their authority (over whatever territory they govern) to the Antichrist. Those 10 kings all arise from the territory of the old Roman Empire according to Daniel. So, IMO, the Antichrist’s Kingdom will be mostly limited to the extent of that ancient empire.
However, as you know economies are linked by trade agreements. So what happens in Antichrist’s Kingdom will have a ripple effect around the world. There is no way that I know of to predict how this will impact particular nations outside of the territories of the 10 kings.
I believe China plays a significant part in Revelation regarding the “kings of the east.” But this does not appear to enter the picture until just before Armageddon.
As far as preparing those we know for what is coming, location is not what is important. What is important is that we have spotless robes. The primary theme in Revelation is about the fact that those with stained robes will NOT be allowed into the marriage supper (Kingdom), nor will those with stained robes be preserved by God during the time of tribulation. The overriding message in Revelation is becoming an “overcomer” over the world, the flesh, and the devil. And those who take these things seriously the warnings will have the promises contained in the seven letters regarding both a place in the Kingdom and preservation during the tribulation. Those who think that physical preparation or location are the important things are in for a very rude awakening, especially if they are disobedient to the commands of God in Scripture. Only the ones included in the statement, “the Bride has made herself ready” will take part in the marriage of the Lamb.
Those who are preparing themselves by becoming “overcomers” and washing their robes will absolutely understand what is happening and they will not take the mark of the beast. Those who are not “overcoming” in their personal lives, who are self-deceived into thinking that they can ignore some of God’s commands in Scripture and still be OK, will also be deceived into taking the mark of the beast. The deception is incremental, when you tolerate a little deception, Satan gives you a little more, then a little more, until you have completely lost your way. Satan will then throw you a life-preserver — the mark of the beast.
