There is a key statement in Daniel 7:25 regarding the coming Antichrist:
He…shall intend to change times and law.
If we want to understand the times we live in, we need to understand what this means. In brief, as G.H. Pember says, the Antichrist…
…will aim at an entire reconstruction of human society, upon principles which have long been working beneath the surface in a mystery of lawlessness.
— Great Prophecies, Volume 2, page 281
And indeed it is this “mystery of lawlessness” (2 Thess. 2:7) that is already at work today, mainly through the efforts of the social and political Left, to overthrow any standard of righteousness in our society. As Pember also says:
France…, by the revolution of 1789, began to spread the principles of that anarchy out of which Antichrist will arise.
Drawing a good deal from my own book, Lawlessness, the Left, & the Antichrist, we consider in this episode how this will eventually result in mankind’s final apostasy against God (2 Thess. 2:3) and thus prepare the way for the coming of the last great evil leader of fallen mankind.
