Who is Antichrist? by Dr. J. Vernon McGee

Who is Antichrist?
Dr. J. Vernon McGee

Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by
our gathering together unto him, that ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be
troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day
of the Lord is present. Let no man deceive you by any means; for that day shall
not come, except there come the 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 worshiped, so that he, as God, sitteth in the temple of
God, showing himself that he is God. Remember ye not that, when I was yet
with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what restraineth that he
might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work;
only he who now hindereth will continue to hinder until he be taken out of the
way. And then shall that wicked one be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume
with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming,
even him whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and
signs and lying wonders, and with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in
them that perish, because they received not the love of the truth, that they
might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that
they should believe the lie, that they all might be judged who believed not the
truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. (2 Thessalonians 2:1-12)
Across the pages of Scripture passes a character who is awesome and appalling. This menacing
figure is mysterious; he is hazy and enigmatic. Sometimes he's a shady character. Again,
he is an evil influence. Then again, he is an angel of light. There is actually no crystal-clear,
cameo-cut presentation of him. He moves on the borderline of the natural and the supernatural.
