Question: Is the President of Iran, who’s visiting New York right now, the anti-Christ that is going to come into play before Jesus returns? There’s something so strange about him and something that seems very evil.
Answer: I don’t know. The characteristic of the antichrist that I am looking for is someone who seems able to broker a peace treaty between Israel and her enemies (Daniel 9:27). At this point, Ahmadinejad doesn’t seem poised to be able to do that. His denial of the Holocaust and strong anti-Israeli stance do not put him in good stead to broker any peace with Israel. But things could change and so we just don’t know what specific individuals will be used by God to accomplish His purposes.
