The thesis of this audiobook is that the Antichrist will attempt to present himself as the Jewish Messiah, and that he will try his best to appear as if he is instituting what Jewish believers know as the Messianic Age and what Christians know as the Millennial reign.
This audiobook attempts to show that much of what we know about the Antichrist, such as his destruction of the enemies of Israel in Daniel 11:40-45, his seven-year covenant, his rebuilding of the temple and starting the daily sacrifice, his eventual stopping of the sacrifices and sitting in the temple to accept worship, his making Jerusalem the capital of the world, even his promotion by the False Prophet (which this audiobook argues, claims to be Elijah) all points to the conclusion that his goal is to deceive the world into believing that the Messiah has come, that the Messiah is in fact God, and that he deserves the worship of the world. This audiobook will argue for this view in great detail and give special attention to objections to it.
This audiobook also argues that the little-known eschatological (end-time) beliefs of the Jewish theologians, according to the Talmud and other rabbinic writings, seem to encourage Jews to accept as Messiah a man with the exact characteristics of the Antichrist. Similarly, that Islamic beliefs about the end times, as related in the Quran and the hadiths (the sayings of Muhammad), will cause them to play a very important role in the Antichrist's rise to power.
Though this view is the earliest view of the church, it has been almost totally forgotten in recent years. If it is true, it would mean the deception of Satan in the end times will be far more potent than many of us have ever imagined.

"the Study of Eschatology"
Eschatology* is the study of "end times", specifically as it relates to the Bible and world events.
*This book is for those who have a serious interest in this subject only.
The title lets us know that his major point of study for this book, is the nature and origin of the "anti-Christ". This "person's" identity has been the subject of the three Abrahamic religions, and is frequently mentioned in the eschatological texts of all three's sacred scriptures.
Chris White is well-read in the field of eschatology. He has a bible study podcast which examines various issues surrounding the bible, with an emphasis on biblical "end-times". (I believe his career occupation however, is that of an Attorney at Law. This is evidenced by the compelling arguments he is able to make, and his clear presentation of facts, and separating speculations for examination.)
He understands most of the major arguments about biblical prophecy, and states them in a clear and concise manner. He presents his views in comparison and contrast to the other most commonly held views, and then explains why he feels his position is better. He creates compelling arguments, underscored by biblical supports.
"I love Chris - but this is way off the mark"
More research - This book supposes the Jews will accept a man claiming to be YHVH - did not happen the 1st time - won't happen today. Also supposes Jews will butcher Christians - no way!
Islam teaches that 2 great Muslim leaders will soon arise, (1) the Madhi, who will lead an army of 10 Arab nations (carrying black flags), to conquer the world for Islam, and (2) the returning Islamic Jesus.
Islamic Jesus will be re-born near Damascus and will claim himself Muslim. (Unlike Christian Jesus who will come in the clouds). Islamic Jesus will tell the world that the Crucifixion never happened, and will perform miracles on behalf of the Madhi. They will destroy the world economy, create a drought and famine on the earth. Islam teaches, the pair will then make a 7 year treaty with Israel and Rome. After 3.5 years the Madhi invades Israel, and will set his throne on the temple mount. Their army will carry the ‘black flags’ when he begins his world conquest. Islam teaches they will change the world calendar to the Islamic calendar. Islamic Jesus will then kill all swine on earth, and begin to pull all crosses off churches – converting Christians at sword point. Islam teaches he will next battle a Jewish leader who calls himself The Messiah at the temple mount, and then put all of Israel to the sword. Islam teaches that the trees in Israel (except the broom tree) will cry out to Muslims – see a Jew is hiding behind me, come and kill him. Sound familiar?
Islam and Islamic prophesy fits the Anti Christ as I posted above - NOT ISRAEL
"Love Chris White, where is he?"
This was one of the most accurate renderings of the available prophecies on end times. Way better than Late Great Planet Earth.
struggle to finnish, it seems i can't really find a clear understanding of what the narator is trying to explain in this book, its too much information mixed up to much back and forth of the same things..too many theories and options outhere, who really knows the truth? ..i guess we will leave and see ...or not
"Beat treatment of this subject"
Chris did an outstanding job writing on this subject, a subject that is obscured by so many false assumptions and incorrect interpretations. He presents all views before presenting a clear, logical and scriptural explanation of the topic in focus.
I follow most of Chris work and agree with him 95% of the time and this is one of those times😎. Fantastic job👍
"This is a great read"
Very well researched, spot and gives us a rounded biblical view of what the bible teaches about the anti Christ
"Very good book"
Great book very informative. Gives great insight and strengthens my resolve to study more.
I will get more of his books.
"Eschatology students will think."
The evidence presented, and the scripture backing up his presentation is eyeopening for any student of eschatology.
Chris is a very good speaker, he enunciates and keeps me listening. I could listen to this guy give a Bible study all day.
Yes, The Evidence
Buy this book or the Audio version, You Will learn something NEW.
With all scripture we have to compare it with scripture and not bleed into it the times we live in and we are responsible for checking to see if these things be true.
