Observations on the Antichrist

Dr. Lively discusses his book-in-progress “The Dynasty of Darkness” and the coming short-lived Antichrist kingdom. He contends that “the Antichrist” is whomever the demon Satan happens to be possessing at any given time, and that there have been a long succession of them in human history. He points out that “Antichrist” literally means “anti-Messiah,” and that both Jews and Christians believe in the Messiah — even though most Jews do not agree that Jesus is He, and will not acknowledge Him as such until the second coming. Nevertheless, the Antichrist opposes both Christians and Jews throughout history, and while the Antichrist of Daniel 11 was specifically focused against the Jews, the last-days Antichrist of Revelation will be focused against the Christians.
