I am reading a book by Perry Stone, he suggests the antichrist will come from an Islam Country. What do you think of this theory?
Wrong answer. This is a common mistake made by Bible teachers since the Antichrist is referred to as ‘the Assyrian’ in a number of passages. See Micah 5:5 which reads, “And this man shall be the peace, when the Assyrian shall come into our land: and when he shall tread in our palaces, then shall we raise against him seven shepherds, and eight principal men.” This is a passage about Jesus coming back and making peace when the Assyrian comes into the land of Israel. The Antichrist gain this title of ‘the Assyrian’ NOT BECAUSE HE IS BORN IN ASSYRIA, BUT BECAUSE HE CONQUERS ASSYRIA. The Antichrist will come out of the USA and will take over ancient Assyria and by right of conquest gain the title.
