Introduction:

It is admittedly difficult, and perhaps impossible, to fit each prophecy concerning the Antichrist into its proper chronological place. But it is possible to determine the relative position of most of them. The career of the Antichrist is divided into two main distinct parts, and there is a clearly defined dividing line between them. The Antichrist has double meaning, signifying one who imitates, Christ, and one who is opposed to Christ. This double meaning to his name corresponds exactly with the two chief parts in his career. In the first, he poses as the true Christ, claiming to be indeed the Messiah of Israel. This claim will be backed up with the most imposing credentials and all excepting God’s elect will be deceived. He will sit in the Temple (rebuilt temple in Jerusalem) showing himself forth to be God, and Divine character as the opponent of Christ and the defier of God. Then, instead of befriending the Jews, he will turn against them and seek to exterminate them from the earth. Thus, with many of the scriptures which describe the person and career of the Antichrist it is a comparatively easy matter to decide whether they belong to the first or to the second stage of his history. But beyond this it is difficult, with some scriptures at least to go.

The Time of his appearing:

It is hardly necessary for us to enter into a lengthy argument to show that the Antichrist has not already appeared. J.D. Pentecost says, “His manifestation is being hindered by the Restrainer, and this appearance will be preceded by a departure from the faith or a departure of the saints to be with the Lord (2 Thess, 2:1-7).”[1] In 2 Thess. 2:3-12, the man of lawlessness is a figure still in the future, who will set himself in God’s place and subdue the world into believing lies.[2]

William Hendriksen further explains that, “The man of Lawlessness” was still being held back. Though present in the mind of Satan, something and someone for the time being prevented for the Antichrist from appearing on the scene of History.[3] When God’s restraining hand which preserves law and order is withdrawn, this spirit of stannic lawlessness will become incarnate in “the lawless one.”[4] And Anthony A. Hoekema also says the same that, “the man of lawlessness can be revealed after that which restraints has been taken out of the way.”[5] Many antichrists have already come and gone, and some are in the world even now; the same is equally true of the many false prophets foretold in scripture. But all of these are but the forecasts and foreshadowing’s of the Antichrist and the False Prophet, who is yet to be revealed, and who will receive their final overthrow by the Lord Jesus at His return to the earth.[6] Before the Antichrist can appear the Holy Spirit must be “taken out of the way” (2 Thess. 2:7); the old Roman Empire must be revived and assume its final form, divided under ten kings, before the “Little Horn” comes into prominence (Dan. 7:24 – he rises “after them”); Israel must be restored to their land and the Temple be rebuilt, etc. At the present time the ultimate development of “the Mystery of Iniquity” is being hindered. God’s people are the salt of the earth, and their presence here stays the corruption of the “carcass” (Matt. 24:28 – The “Carcass” is the antithesis of the “Body” of Christ). The saints are the light of the world, and while they remain in it is impossible for darkness to cover the earth and gross darkness the people (Isa. 60:2). The Spirit of God is here, indwelling believers, and His holy presence checks the final outworking of Satan’s plans. But when all believers of this dispensation have been “caught up to meet the Lord in the air” (1 Thess. 4:16), and the Holy Spirit has departed from the earth, all restraint will be removed, and Satan will be allowed to bring forth his false Christ, who will be “revealed in his time” (2 Thess. 2:6). And it would seem that even now signs do not want to show that God has already given permission of his evil efforts. But the coming of the great opponent will be attended astounding performance, aimed to delude the massed on their way to perdition. The energy of the devil will operate in and through the man of lawlessness.[7] There can be no doubt but that the Devil has desired to reveal the son of Perdition long before tis, so that by means of him he may reduce the whole world to submission. But the restraining hand of God, now so soon to be removed, has held him back.[8] The time, then, when the Antichrist will be revealed is after this present Dispensation of Grace has run its course; after the Mystical Body of Christ has been completed; after the whole company of God’s people have been caught up to meet the Lord in the air; after the Holy Spirit has departed from the world. How soon after we cannot say for certain. The last great Caesar will come into prominence almost immediately after the rapture of the saints. Mark G. Cambrom put it in this way, “He has not yet been revealed, but it is possible in the light of present day events, that somewhere in the world he is alive today. He will not appear as the Antichrist until the Old Roman Empire is revived, composed of the ten toed kingdom of Dan. 2 and the ten – horned beast of Revelation 13 and 17. Another thing that must come to pass before hi is revealed is the rapture of the Church.”[9]

Personally, I believe there will be an interval, long or short, between the two. As there was a period of thirty years after the birth of the Lord Jesus, a period of silence before His public ministry commenced, so there may be a similar interval between the Rapture and the Revelation of Antichrist. The Antichrist will enter the arena of public affairs before the beginning of Daniel’s seventieth week, for at the beginning of it he makes a seven-year covenant with Jews, then in their land. But at that point he will be the Dictator of the world’s policies, and as he begins in comparative obscurity, sometime probably years, must be allowed for his gradual rise to political supremacy. His meteoric course will not be terminated until the Lord Himself descends to earth to usher in the Millennium. Just as the reign of Saul preceded that of David, so shall that of Antichrist antedate that of the true Christ.

The place of his appearing:

In Dan. 7:7, 8 it says, “After this I saw in the night visions, and, behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and break in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was divers from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns. The writer considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn.” This fourth Beast is the last world-empire, prior to the setting up of the Messianic kingdom. He is the head of the last form of Gentile world dominion, for he is like’s leopard, a bear, and a lion (Rev. 13:1).[10] This empire will, at first, be ruled over by ten kings, the “ten horns” of Dan. 7:7 and defined as ten kings in Dan. 7:24. After them arises another, the “Little Horn,” which signifies another “king,” (Dan. 7:24).[11] He is termed “little” because at that stage his kingdom is but small compared with that of the others, and the power he then wields is insignificant when contrasted from the ten kings. But not for long will he remains weak and insignificant. Soon the ten kings will themselves own allegiance to this eleventh (Rev. 17:12, 13). Taking it for granted that the Little Horn of Dan. 7 is the Antichrist let’s see how what is there said of him helps to determine the quarter from which he will arise. In Dan. 7:7 the “fourth Beast” is described, and in Dan. 7:23 it is said that, “the fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.” This kingdom will be divided into ten parts, over which will be the ten kings (Dan. 7:24). This kingdom will be, the old Roman Empire revived in its final form, and divided into two great halves, the Eastern and the Western. This fourth kingdom will include within itself all the territory and will perpetuate all the dominant characteristics of the other three which have preceded it, i.e. the Babylonian, the Medo-Persian, and Grecia. Turning now to Dan. 7:8 it is said that, “I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn.” The Antichrist, then, will have his rise within the limits of the old Roman Empire. This narrows considerably our circle of inquiry. The next question is, from which part of the empire he will arise, the Eastern or the Western? Daniel 8 furnishes light upon this point. In Dan. 8:8,9 it says, “Therefore the he-goat waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and for it came up four notable ones toward the four winds of heaven. And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land.” Now Dan. 8:21 of this same chapter tells us, “The rough goat is the king of Grecia,” and Dan. 8:22 informs us “and the great horn that is between his eyes is the first king. Now that being broken, whereas four stood up for it, four kingdoms shall stand up out of the nation.” This, of course, refers to the act of Alexander the Great who divided his kingdom into four parts: Greece, Egypt, Syria, and the rest of the domains of Turkey under his four great general: Ptolemy, Cassander, Lysimachus, and Seleucus. This, again, very appreciably narrows our circle of inquiry. Daniel 7 tells us the Little Horn to arise in a part of the territory covered by the old Roman Empire, which Empire gradually included within its domains that the preceding empires. Now here in Daniel 8 we learn that the Little Horn will spring from that part of the revived Roman Empire which was included in the Grecian Empire. But this is not all that Dan. 8 is talking about. The Grecian Empire is here viewed as disintegrated into four parts or kingdoms, from which of these parts, we expect him to issue, Macedonia, Egypt, Syria, or Thrace? This question, receives answer in Dan. 8; where it is said that, the Little Horn “waxed exceeding great toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land.” Practically “the south” here refers to Egypt, the “east” to Persia and Greece and “the pleasant land” to Palestine, hence it would seem that the country from which Antichrist will first be manifested is Syria.[12] It will be noted that nothing is said in Dan. 8:9 about the Little Horn “waxing great” toward the north and the writer believe the reason for this is because that is the quarter from whence he shall arise. This is confirmed by the fact that “the king of Assyria” in Isa. 10:12 is clearly none other than the Antichrist.

“In the first place, as Nimrod, the founder of Babel, that is, the Tower of Babylon, a savage tyrant and cruel oppressor of men, was the first person who declared open war against God. So it is appropriate that there should arise from the selfsame Babylon, the last and most atrocious persecutor of the saints, the Antichrist. Moreover, seeing that Nebuchadnezzar and Antiochus Epiphanes, two monsters who bore down upon the people of God with an overwhelming power of destruction, and who were the antichrists of the Old Testament and remarkable types of the Antichrist which is to come. Seeing this, we way that these monarchs reigned in Babylon, it is fitting that the true Antichrist of the New Testament should arise from the same Babylon. “Beside, no place can be pointed out more meet for the nativity of Antichrist than Babylon, for it is the City of the Devil always diametrically opposed to Jerusalem, which is deemed the City of God; the former city, that is, Babylon, being the mother and disseminator of every kind of confusion, idolatry, impiety a vast sin of every foul pollution, crime, and iniquity the first city in the world which cut itself off from the worship from the true God which reared the city if universal vice, which perpetually carries on the mystery of iniquity, and bears imprinted on her brow the inscription of blasphemy against the name of God. The consummation, therefore, of impiety, which is to have its recapitulation in Antichrist, could not break forth from a more fitting place than Babylon.”

The Duration of the Antichrist:

The duration of his rule is brief. It can be noted that he will not be revealed until after the church and the Holy Spirit are removed from the earth. The rapture will bring to a close the present dispensation of the church, and it will commence the seventieth “week” of Daniel’s prophecy (Dan. 9). The Lord sent the angel of Gabriel with a message concerning Israel’s future (vv. 24-27). Gabriel informed Daniel that God was going to have special dealings with Israel for “seventy units of sevens” which because of the context is commonly understood to mean 70 X 7, or 490 years.[13] Paul N. Benware writes,

Daniel was told that these 490 years would be made up of three distinct divisions. The first unite of seven-sevens (forty nine years) is the period of time for the rebuilding of the city of Jerusalem (Dan. 9:25a). The second unite of sixty-two sevens (434 years) comprises the time from the rebuilding to the coming of the Messiah (v. 25b). This of course, brings the total to sixty-nine sevens (483 years), leaving one unite of seven (seven years). The final division (of seven years), two key events will transpire: the death of the Messiah, and the destruction of the city of Jerusalem (v. 26). Placing these two events after sixty-nine weeks but before the seventieth weeks seems to indicate a gap of time. This allows for, but does not require, the Church age. But since the last Week is disconnected from the first sixty-nine weeks the question arise as to when this final week takes place. The answer is that, when “he” (probably the Antichrist) makes a covenant with Israel, the last week begins.[14]

Lehman Strauss says, “The week is equal to seven years after which time Christ returns to the earth with His saints, So that the rule of the man of sin will not exceed seven years.”[15] The duration of his rule is fixed by God. This seems to be indicated in several statements in Daniel “the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them; until the Ancient of days comes, for at the time appointed the end shall be. He shall prosper until the indignation is accomplished.” God has set the bounds. The “man of sin” can go so far and no farther.[16] Though the time of period seems of short duration, it is certain that all of God’s declared purpose for that period will be fulfilled. The future period of the great Tribulation prophesied by Christ (Matt. 24:9-28) is describe by the Apostle Paul in (1 Thess. 5:1-9; 2 Thess. 2:1-12). The entire period between the rapture and the second coming of Christ is a time of the tribulation. And it will last for seven years. But the last three and one half years are called the “great tribulation” (Matt. 24:21-27; Dan. 12:1). And this tribulation marks the close of the extended period of the times of the Gentiles” (Lk. 21:24).[17] And during the first half of the week (31/2 years) the “man of sin” will be occupied with the building of his kingdom. He will arise as a new leader. The little horn among the ten kingdoms (ten horns). He is the rider on the white horse (Rev. 6:2). He comes into prominence with the revival of the Roman Empire. All others national leaders will reign with him. But will be under him in his rule. At the end of the first three and half years he will have gained world supremacy, having received his power and authority from the devil (Rev. 13:2). The real purpose of the Tribulation will be accomplished during the last three and half years. The tribulation does not deal at all with the church, but with Israel. In the midst of the week he will turn up against the Jews and make the Temple desolate with his abominations (Dan. 9:27).[18]

The two distinct parts of his manifestation:

There are two distinct parts of the Antichrist manifestation. And the Scripture is very clear on his manifestation that will exhibit in his seven years of power on this earth.

His peaceful manifestation

Before the Antichrist becomes a great military leader, he appears on the scene as a very nice personality, winning the favors and admiration of the whole world. The rise of the ten kings of the last empire mention in Daniel 7 bring consequent upon many political disturbances bring about very little peace, because these kings have risen from a seething cauldron of great unrest and stir. Everyone is now in search of some gigantic intellect to control the state of affairs. Owing to the bitter hatred against the newly formed monarchies by the people in general, all will be eagerly awaiting the advent of some extra efficient person to save the various countries from further devastation. Every attempt to affect a temporary union of all these ten kings appears futile. The ground is thus well prepared for a man of policy to evolve order from chaos. A.M. Samuel says, “When the superman (Antichrist) enters the scene, he finds it well prepared and he is wise enough to adapt himself to the environment by offering solutions to all the distressing problems, according to their respective urgency and importance.”[19]

About seven months after the Antichrist, the “Prince” of Dan. 9:27 has made the Covenant with the Jews he will begin to “practice” in Jerusalem (Dan. 8:24). This we believe is the explanation of the two thousand three hundred days of Dan. 8:14. This two thousand three hundred days is the whose period during which the false messiah will practice in Jerusalem and have power over the “sanctuary”: two thousand three hundred days is seven years less even months and ten days. There, in Jerusalem, he will pose as the Christ of God, the Prince of Peace.

The world will suppose that the long looked – for Millennium has arrived. There will be every indication that the eagerly desired Golden Age has, at last, dawned. The great Powers of Europe and Asia will have been united under the ten-kingdom Empire. It will be expected that the League of Nations guarantees the peace of the earth. For a season quietness and amity will prevail. None will dare to oppose the mighty Emperor. But not for long will the hideous war-specter hide himself. Soon will the “white horse” of Revelation 6 be found to change his hue. A “red horse” will go forth, and then “peace shall be taken from the earth” (Rev. 6). At the very time the world is congratulating itself that all is well, and the slogan of the hour is “Peace and Safety,” then “sudden destruction cometh upon them” (1 Thess. 5:3).

The gradual change in his manifestation:

The manifestation of the Antichrist from his seeming loveable disposition at the start, and for a short time acting as the savior and restorer of the world, changes soon took place in his character, when power was concentrated in his hands.[20] J.D. Pentecost states, “his rise comes through his peace program (Dan. 8:25) but it will be ended up with the satanic work.”[21]

In the midst of the seven years the Antichrist will throw off his mask, break his covenant with Israel, and stand forth as the most daring idolater who has ever trodden this earth. After he has “practiced” in Jerusalem for two years and five months, he will take away the daily sacrifice (Dan. 8:11; 9:27) from the Temple, and in its place rear an image to himself in the holy place, which is the “abomination of desolation” referred to by Christ (Matt. 24:15).

There are several scriptures which throw light on this point. Satan will cause the Man of Sin to crown his daring imitation of the Christ of god by being slain and rising again from the dead. Both the old and the New Testaments refer to the death of the Antichrist, and attribute it to the sword. In Rev. 12:14, it says that, the false Prophet shall say to them that dwell on the earth that they should make an image to the Beast, which had the wound by the sword and did live. In harmony with this it ways, in Zech. 11:17, “Woe to the Idol Shepherd that leaves the flock. The sword shall be upon his arm, and upon his right eye.” It is to b noted that the “the sword shall be” upon him, it is told that he “leaves the flock,” and the previous verse tells us that he was raised up “in the land,” which can only mean that he was ruling in Palestine.

Hence it is clear that he leaves the Land before he receives his death would by the sword. In perfect accord with this it says in Isa. 37:6, 7; “Behold, I will send a blast upon him, and he shall hear a rumor, and return to his own land; and I will cause him to fall by the sword in his own land.” Leaving Palestine, the Antichrist will “return to his own land,” that is, the land of his nativity Assyria. Which was believe that Antichrist will first manifest from Assyria, his country, then come to Palestine.

Great change in his manifestation

In death he will be hated and dishonored, and burial will be refused him. It is to this that Isaiah 14 (speaking of the King of Babylon, v.4) refers: “But you are cast out of your grave like an abominable branch, and as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit. As a carcass trodden under feed, you shall be joined with them in burial, because you have destroyed the land, and slain your people” (vv.19, 20). But the turning point I his career is when he received the deadly wound; and when everyone thought that he was going to be buried, he suddenly rose on strength through the power of Satan.[22] And his enemies will suddenly be filled with consternation and then admiration for to their amazement this one slain by the sword shall rise from the dead, and his deadly wound will be healed.[23] Note how this is implied in Isaiah 14, for v. 25 shows him once more in the land of the living, only to meet his final doom at the hands of the Lord Himself.

It is to his amazing resurrection of the Antichrist that Rev. 13:3, 4 refers: “And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the Beast. And they worshipped the Dragon which gave power unto the Beast: saying, who is like unto the Beast? Who is able to make war with him?” details of his resurrection are supplied in Revelation 9, from which we gather that just as Christ was raised form the dead by God the Father, so the Antichrist will be raised from the dead by his father the Devil, v.1 where the fallen “Star,” which refers to Satan, is given the “key to the bottomless pit,” and when this is happened there comes out of it the mysterious “locusts” whose king is the Destroyer (v.11), the Antichrist. A further reference to the resurrection of the Antichrist, his coming forth from the Bottomless Pit, is found in Rev. 17:8: “The Beast that you saw was, and is not and shall ascend out of the Bottomless Pit, and go into Perdition: and they that dwell on the arth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when the behold the Best that was and is not and yet is.” It is to be noted that the earth-dwellers wonder when they behold the Beast that was (alive), and not (not alive), and yet is (raised again).

The world will then be resented with the spectacle of a man raised from the dead. All know him, for his career and amazing progress were eagerly watched; his wonderful achievements and military campaigns were the subject of daily interest; his transcendent genius elicited their admiration. They had witnessed his death. They stood awe-struck, no doubt, at the downfall of this King of kings. And now he is made alive; his wound of death is healed; and the whole world wonders and worships him.[24] It is about this time, apparently, that the “False Prophet” (Rev. 13:11-16), the third person in the Trinity of Evil will appear on the scene. From a number of scriptures it is evident that the Antichrist will not spend all his time in Palestine during the last three and a half years of his career.  It seems that shortly after the middle of the “week” the Beast will turn hi face again toward Babylon, leaving the False Prophet to act as his vice-regent, compelling all in Jerusalem to worship the image of the Beast under pain of death (Rev. 13:15). It is to be noted that Habakkuk 2:5 tells us that the Antichrist is “a proud man, neither kept at home, who enlarged his desire as hell, and is as death, and cannot be satisfied but gathered unto him all nations, and heaped unto him all people.” The reason for the Antichrist’s return to Babylon is not far to seek. Having thrown off his mask of religious pretention, he now stands forth as the Defier of God. And now the covenant was broken after three and one-half years (Dan. 9:27).[25] His first move now will be to blot out from the earth everything that bears His name. To accomplish this, the Jewish race must be utterly exterminated, and to this end he will put forth all his power to banish Israel from the earth. He will make war with the saints (the Jewish saints) and prevail against them (Dan. 7:21; 8:24): this is the going forth of the “red horse” of Revelation 6:4. Those of the godly remnant who are left will “flee to the mountains” (Matt. 24:16), and there they will be hunted like partridges. It is then they will cry, “do not keep silence, O God: hold not your peace, and be not still, O God. For, lo, your enemies make a tumult: and they that hate you have lifted up the head. They have taken crafty counsel against your people, and consulted against your hidden ones. They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance (Ps. 83:1-4). Then, because many of the Hews will be found in that day dwelling in Babylon (Jer. 50:8; 51:6; 45; Rev. 18:4) the Antichrist will go thither to wreak his vengeance upon them. But not for long will he be suffered to continue his blasphemous and bloody course. Soon will heaven respond to the cries of the faithful remnant of Israel, and terrible shall be the punishment meted out on their last enemy.

Conclusion:

The manifestation of Anti-Christ will be hindered by the Restrainer, and this appearance will be preceded by a departure from the faith or a departure of the saints to be with the Lord (2 Thess, 2:1-7). Then, he will begin as a mere man in world affairs; but he will be rapidly promoted until he becomes ruler of the entire world and try to bring peace. The Antichrist will be revealed and his reign will come to pass when the restrainer is removed. His reign will be for almost seven years. The first three and half years he will put on his mask and try to bring peace to this world. But he will reveal his true color during the last three and half years and that is called the “great tribulation” and will cause abomination of desolation during those years.
