A world ruler, referred to as the Antichrist, will head the revived Roman Empire and the source of his power will be Satan. 1
The Antichrist will make war against the children of God (the saints.) And he will be worshiped by the inhabitants of the earth. Believers in Christ Jesus, whose names are written in the Lamb's book of Life, will not worship him, however.
Those who refuse to worship the image of the Antichrist, which will be set up by an apostate religious leader in the Temple in Jerusalem, will be either killed, or prohibited from buying, or selling, anything. They won't even be permitted to buy the necessities of life such, as, food or clothing. To enforce this policy, everyone will be required to receive a mark on their right hand, or forehead. This will show who is a worshiper and who isn't.2
Those who take the mark of the Antichrist, however, will experience the wrath of God.3
