I refer to the antichrist who is to come as Satan’s Superman because his intellectual genius will be immense and his authority will be overpowering. His hatreds will be extraordinary and his techniques will be superb.
Men will be willing to die for him and women will swoon at his feet. Little children will speak his name with reverence. This lawless one is going to ride into power on a platform of fame and fortune and the biggest plank in his platform is going to be world peace.
Second Thessalonians 2:3-4 says, “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.” The antiChrist is coming and may even be waiting in the wings. What is to be our response?
God’s word continues, “Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle. Now our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work” (2 Thessalonians 2:15-17).
