The False Prophet will have a key role in the End Times, particularly during the Tribulation.
Let's first see what we learn about him from the main text concerning this ominous End Times figure...
11 "Then I saw another beast [the False (counterfeit)
Prophet] coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a
lamb and he spoke as a dragon. 12 He
exercises all the authority of the first beast [Antichrist] in his presence. And
he makes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose
fatal wound was healed. 13 He
performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down out of heaven to the
earth in the presence of men. 14 And
he deceives those who dwell on the earth because of the signs which it was
given him to perform in the presence of the beast, telling those who dwell on
the earth to make an image to the beast who had the wound of the sword and has
come to life. 15 And it was
given to him to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the
beast would even speak and cause as many as do not worship the image of the
beast to be killed. 16 And he
causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free
men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their
forehead, 17 and he
provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has
the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has
understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a
man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six."
Revelation 13 is the chapter containing the Tribulation. At the beginning of this chapter the dragon (Satan) gives power to the beast (Antichrist), and here the False Prophet has the authority of the Antichrist.
These three form the unholy trinity. The devil is always the counterfeit. He has never had (nor ever will have) a unique or creative ability. He can only counterfeit our holy Creator.
He is in a supporting role to the Antichrist. Again he is counterfeiting. This time he's copying Aaron's role to Moses. As Aaron did, the evil prophet will speak for and perform the miraculous signs at the word of the beast.
As Moses and Aaron spoke truth and pointed people to our Father God, everything the False Prophet does is to deceive the people into worshiping the Antichrist. He's the ultimate huckster.
He even brings fire down out of heaven. Does that ring a bell? Remember Elijah on Mount Carmel as he faced the prophets of Baal bringing down fire to devour the sacrifice, altar, and water?
He also has an image built and makes it speak. If people do not have insight and understanding you can see how easy it would be to follow such leaders.
He is also the enforcer. He leads the way with the mark of the beast and attempts to kill all who do not worship the Antichrist.
His Destiny (Doom)
19 "And I saw the beast
[Antichrist] and the kings of the earth and their armies assembled to make war
against Him who sat on the horse [Christ at His Second Coming] and against His
20 And the beast was seized, and
with him the false prophet who performed the signs in his presence, by which he
deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped
his image; these two were thrown alive
into the lake of fire which burns with brimstone."
He is not a peer of the King of kings and the Lord
of lords, Jesus Christ. His doom is sure

The unholy trinity does have power and authority. But they were given to them. They are subject to Almighty God. They are a part of the fallen creation. Just because a sign is performed, it does not mean that God is at work. Thus the name False Prophet.
