Will the Antichrist be born of a virgin? Will the Antichrist be a Jew or a Gentile?
- Will the Antichrist be born of a virgin?
The Antichrist is presented in scripture as a complete counterfeit of the true Christ. As the
counterfeit son, he would have a supernatural origin. He will literally be Satan’s son. II
Thessalonians 2:9, “Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and
signs and lying wonders.” The Antichrist will be fully human, yet totally possessed by Satan.
- Will the Antichrist be a Jew or a Gentile? Daniel 8; and in Revelation 13:1, “And I stood upon
the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns,
and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.”
- We can also see prophecies in Revelation 17:15; Daniel 2 and 7, as well as Daniel 7:25; 9:27;
Daniel 11:41-45 as well as II Thessalonians 2:4, “Who opposeth and exalteth himself above (A
that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewin,
himself that he is God.” And then there is Revelation 11:2, “But the court which is without the
temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles; and that holy city shall
they tread under foot forty and two months.” And Revelations 12:6, Revelations 13:7, “And i
was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them and power was given h
over all kindred, and tongues, and nations.”
What would the Antichrist be like? Today, I would like to give you six of his traits:
- He will be an intellectual genius: Daniel 8:23.
- He will be an oratorical genius: Daniel 11:36.
- He will be a political genius: Daniel 9:27; Revelation 17:11-12.
- He will be a commercial genius: Ii Thessalonians 2:4 and Revelation 13:8.
- He will be a military genius: Revelation 6:2 and Revelation 13:2.
- He will be a religious genius: H Thessalonians 2:4 and Revelation 13:8.
