Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; but in the middle of the week He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering.
Bible scholars have speculated for centuries about the identity of the Antichrist. Some years ago, speculation swirled around Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini. During apostolic times, Nero was a prime suspect. Trying to identify the Antichrist is not a totally futile exercise, for we should be on our guard at all times. The names mentioned above and others are likely precursors to the future and ultimate Antichrist, as were Antiochus and Alexander the Great.
We don't know who the Antichrist is, but one thing we do know. When he comes, he will try to imitate Jesus Christ, even to the point of appearing as a peacemaker. He will establish a peace covenant with Israel, and then break it. The human race is so desperately seeking peace that we're vulnerable to being fooled. But there's only one real Prince of Peace. Jesus alone can bring peace to the human heart and to the human race. Accept no substitutes. Be fooled by no imitations.

[The Antichrist] is both a false Christ and against Christ. He masquerades as an angel of light only to plunge the world into spiritual darkness.
