The Unholy Trinity is the Satanic version of the Christian concept of the Holy Trinity - it is believed by some to be symbolic of a union between three powerful demons to oppose God and the forces of Heaven during the apocalypse, resulting in the era known as the End Times - which in turn would lead to the battle of Armageddon and ultimately the Day Of Judgement.
In The Book of Revelations, the Beast starts the End Battle by converting humans to his ways, and freeing the trapped angels, and then the Antichrist moves among humans as one of them. The Antichrist and the Beast together free Satan, and all three have an empire which lasts over a thousand years. In that time the Moon turns to blood and stars fall. In the final days of the reign, God defeats the Behemoth, the Beast and the evil angels. The Antichrist is fought and bound by Jesus and the Devil, Satan, is bound by God and Jesus and thrown into the Lake of Fire along with the Antichrist.
