When we compare these five accomplishments of Jesus (according to the Bible), with five things "the Antichrist" will supposedly do (according to the popular idea in Christianity today), the resemblance is striking. Around the world Christian leaders are warning of the coming of a man ("the Antichrist") who with satanic powers will rule the world for 7 years. They claim his initial act will be to defeat Russia when it invades Israel. They believe he will then form a special agreement or covenant with the Jews guaranteeing them peace and security. Part of this agreement will allow the Jews to rebuild their temple in Jerusalem and begin to again offer animal sacrifices. They further teach that "the Antichrist" will establish his headquarters in Jerusalem, claiming to be God on earth, and require all people throughout the world to worship him and follow his teachings. Finally, these leaders state that once "the Antichrist" has taken over control of the earth he will establish peace in all nations.
Notice the exact parallels between the Bible's description of what Jesus will do when he returns, and the anticipated acts of "the Antichrist''. This false teaching contains within it the distinct possibility of a disastrous outcome for the millions of Christians who believe it now, or who will be led to believe it in the near future.
