Blessed Theodoret of Cyprus on the Antichrist

“The Antichrist will not rule over all, but only over those who are worthy of perdition, who, even if he did not come, still would have deprived themselves of salvation.”

+ + +

“The Antichrist will not only pronounce himself highest of the false gods, but will sit in the Temple of God, as if he were God … the Jews, who did not want to believe in the Lord, as though He were an adversary to God, will believe in the Antichrist who will pronounce himself to be the god of all.”
